Not only was the sixth episode awesome (ERMEHGERDMOONSTICK), but we were given some cleanup artwork in the opening sequence! The most notable was Queen Serenity. GORGEOUS!
The opening sequence as a whole was also softened a bit, as you can see in the comparisons above. The lines are not as intense. They also fixed the shadowing in the umbrella section. The final few shots were also fixed. Usagi is made to look a little more serene and the Ginzuishou is much more brilliant and defined. The anatomy in the final shot looks a lot better! They also increased the moonlight on the Senshi and changed Mars’ pose.
Overall, impressive changes. Toei is really stepping it up in things that I didn’t think needed a whole lot of improvement.
Note: I did watermark the Queen Serenity images since it took some effort to make them whole! Please reblog this post or link back to me if you use these images anywhere else. Thanks!!
