* SpecialEffectFailure:
** The ConspicuousCG is ''atrocious''. It's removal in season three was a universally praised choice.
** [[UncannyValley Chibi-Usa's design]] for ''Crystal'', which makes her face much more older while [[{{Squick}} still running around in a toddler's body]]. This was rectified for the "Death Busters Arc", especially since Akira Takahashi, who did the character designs for ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' and ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'', took over.



** Some people feel the new anime has rushed pacing.

** Some people are complaining that the OP isn't "Moonlight Densetsu." This may partly stem from the initial assumption (mistakenly spread by some fansites) that Music/MomoiroCloverZ's popular CoverVersion, which ended up being the ThemeSong for the {{Takarazuka}} {{Revival}} of the ''[[Theatre/SeraMyu musicals]]'', was to be used for ''Crystal.''

* UncannyValley:
** The art style for the first two arcs ''tries'' to be TruerToTheText to the original manga art... and fails spectacularly by being cold and lifeless, ''especially'' when [[SpecialEffectsFailure in]] [[ConspicuousCGI CGI]]. The worst offender is Chibi-Usa's design, detailed above in SpecialEffectsFailure and {{Squick}}.

** Chibiusa musing about how beautiful and pale Hotaru's skin is. Usagi agrees with a knowing expression.

* WinBackTheCrowd: Season 3 saw a number of changes to the show as it moved from a web series to airing on television (and presumably gained an increased budget in the process). Most notably, the art style was changed and the ConspicuousCGI transformation sequences done away with in what may well be a purposeful attempt at addressing fan dissatisfaction with those elements. It seems to be working; fan response to the season's first episode has been positive.

* AwesomeMusic: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0Va228UhRs Moon Pride]]", The first opening theme, an anthem for {{feminist fantas|y}}ies everywhere, and the amazing rocked out soundtrack [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgh7L6VuP5Q backing]] Rei's transformation.

** In Act 28, Minako's gift to Rei for her birthday is Casablanca Lilies, the same flowers Rei always got from her first love.

** The final episode has Usagi spend a good quarter of it in tears. It's emotionally moving the first time she does it, but the next four/five times ends up making you just want to plug your ears or hit mute!



** The titles that [[spoiler: the Shitennou]] possessed when they were [[spoiler: Prince Endymion's PraetorianGuard]] sounded a liiiiiittle bit silly.
** The synchronized falling to the ground and wailing of Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter after [[spoiler:Metalia kills the four kings]] comes across as quite the opposite of what was intended.



** Mistress 9's distorted eyes and facial expressions as Hotaru fights her from within were no doubt intended as BodyHorror, but while some fans find it creepy, to others it's so over the top as to be ridiculous. The fact the episode featured the worst OffModel sequences ever seen in the season didn't help either.
*** In the same episode, Tuxedo Mask comes flying dramatically in! --wrapped up in his cape like a Tuxedo Burrito.
** The first third of the third season's third ending features Tuxedo Mask posing dramatically, slowly raising his cape, and dancing away--twice. It looks so artificial it's ridiculous. The rest of the sequence is properly sexy, though.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Usagi. Fans of the '90s anime and even the manga accuse Crystal!Usagi of being a selfish bitch who only cares about her true love and ignores her friends in favor of Mamoru [[spoiler:especially because she healed him first in the future]]. Fans of the manga and Crystal worship her and throw 90s Usagi under the bus to defend her.

* LGBTFanbase: The franchise always had a big one anyways, but older LGBT girl fans (who loved the manga and got upset at the 90s dub, as the reputation goes) are [[http://moonlightsdreaming.tumblr.com/post/93580938924/you-will-pry-bisexual-usagi-from-my-cold-dead vibrating excitedly]] at how nicely Usagi's attraction to almost every girl she sees is being treated on the screen.

** The frequency of OffModel animation can seriously throw off the mood, ''especially'' at the beginning. It doesn't help if the episode first has some ''gorgeous'' animation, like the reveal of Princess Serenity... and then follows up with OffModel scenes. Oops?

* ShipToShipCombat: The survival of the Shitennou and their increased presence in the plot has revived the once ''very'' ugly debate regarding the scrapped subplot about the Shitennou and the Inner Senshi having romantic links and turned it UpToEleven. With a huge side-dish of HetIsEw as dessert.
** [[spoiler: Episode 10 had confirmed past romances between the Senshi and the Shitennou. A lot of the fandom weren't pleased. ''Episode 12'' continued the revelation, but also killed off the Shitennou and had all four Senshi cry over them, which only worsened the rage.]]
