* OffModel: In general, ''Crystal'' suffers from many bouts of off-model moments by Toei where characters are drawn in strange fashion. These are often easy to spot due to the level of detail in the characters' faces (which makes differences between frames that much more jarring) and the already elongated limbs and bodies of the characters themselves. The mistakes were most prominent in the earlier episodes, and Acts 5 & onward have a much smaller percentage of these issues (but there is a wonky frame every once in a while). [[http://sailorderpcrystal.tumblr.com/ These]] [[http://sailormooncrystalfailures.tumblr.com/episodes Tumblrs]] document these moments hilariously. Eventually, the Japanese fans got annoyed with seeing this, [[https://twitter.com/cerepalla redrew their own Blu-Ray covers and tweeted them to the artists.]] Interestingly, these fans (and anyone else who tweeted the creators of ''Crystal'' to talk about their dissatisfaction) were blocked by Katsuhiro Takagi, Toei Animation's CEO. It's averted in the Blu-ray/DVD release.

** In general, improvements in animation technology allow for more detailed character designs than in 1992. Toei also put deliberate effort into making the show resemble the manga more than the original anime, at least in the first two seasons; as a result, all the characters look taller and thinner than their '90s anime versions.

** Creator/KotonoMitsuishi returns to reprise her role as Usagi[=/=]Sailor Moon after the 17-year gap between the 90's anime and ''Crystal'', but her voice is [[VocalEvolution noticeably different]]. She sounds exactly like [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Hummy]], and her [[CuteButCacophonic wails and whines]] channel [[Anime/OruchubanEbichu Ebichu]].

Not only that, but Mitsuishi is one of the only original cast members to reprise her role this time around.

* GratuitousFrench: Despite being more prone to English borrowings, Crystal's ToBeContinued card in the first two seasons contains the French phrase, ''A Suivre'' to go along with Alphonse Mucha-esque UsefulNotes/ArtNouveau imagery

* AdaptationDistillation: The intent of this series was to distill the original 90s anime into a much faster-paced, action-oriented adventure more akin to the original manga. The original ''Sailor Moon'' had 127 episodes at the end of ''S''. ''Crystal'' got to the same point at 36 episodes. This means that ''Crystal'' cut out nearly one-third (roughly 29% if you do the math) of the 90s anime.

The original ''Sailor Moon'' had 127 episodes at the end of ''S''. While ''Crystal'' got to mostly follows the same point at 36 episodes. This means that ''Crystal'' cut out nearly one-third (roughly 29% if you do manga closely (and was advertised specifically as a manga adaptation and not a remake of the math) old anime), a number of scenes was still dropped or changed around for various reasons, mostly for the sake of timing. However, since this adaptation lacks the copious {{Filler}} of the 90s anime.version, Season 3 ended up ''stretching'' the story by one episode compared to the manga and moving around some scenes, producing a better story flow than in the first two seasons.

** ''Crystal'' itself had this happen in Season 3 which had a new production team and addressed a lot of the issues with the first two seasons. While the new designs are based on the ones from the previous episodes, they are noticeably rounder and simpler, resulting in much fewer OffModel shots than the previous ones.
