The first two seasons were simulcast worldwide on a twice-monthly basis (the first and third Saturdays of each month) via streaming services Website/NicoNicoDouga, Crunchyroll, and Creator/{{Hulu}}'s Creator/NeonAlley channel, beginning in July 2014. Creator/VizMedia, who owns the North American license to the series, produced an English dub using the same voice actors and actresses from their re-dub of the '90s anime.

** Princess Serenity has MysticalWhiteHair in color art for the manga, but in ''Crystal'', she remains blonde. This is most likely carried over from the '90s anime, which made the same change. (A shot of Queen Serenity in the opening sequence showed her as blonde as well, but this turned out to be an error rather than an example of the trope; Toei corrected her hair color to her classic white as of Act 6, and all of her actual scenes in the series show her with white hair.)

** 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.

* 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 Toei's CEO.

* ToBeContinued: The intertitle that closes out each act has GratuitousFrench phrase ''A Suivre'' at left, and a painted silhouette of an [[USefulNotes/ArtNouveau Alphonse Mucha]]-inspired princess at right, haloed with an outer ring of planetary signs and inner painting of the Moon Castle, accented by white lilies and stenciled doilies.

* TruerToTheText: ''Crystal'' is a more direct adaptation of the original [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] than the [[Anime/SailorMoon 90's anime]] or [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon live-action show]], albeit with a SettingUpdate from 1992 to 2014. To this end, Toei {{Art Shifted|Sequel}} the character designs closer to Creator/NaokoTakeuchi's NoodlePeople aesthetic, and the plotting and pacing follow the manga's structure closely, recreating some panels scene for scene. As with the manga's chapters, episodes are called "[[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming acts]]", and each episode takes its title from the chapter it adapts. There are some deviations from the manga, particularly involving the increased presence of the Shitennou, but the sequence of events remains mostly the same.

* StockSoundEffects: A non-public domain example. For the first two seasons, ''Crystal'' used some stock sound effects from the Creator/HannaBarbera library (for example, the "bongo run" is used when Usagi trips over Luna and hits her face hard). The third season also borrows some of the original sound effects from the 90's anime (oddly enough, both series have the same sound effects artist, Yasuyuki Konno).
