The worst part about Sailor Moon Crystal is its turning Usagi into a godmodding Mary Sue who magically changes other girls. The others have no agency or views of their own, they just function as drones to her and are interchangeable, not flawed, and only exist to make Usagi look better than she really is. Give me the original anime any day.

I think this is true so far. Crystal might be a badly written and badly planned product, but comparing it to the original anime is unfair. The original anime had creative and talented people working together to create something they loved, Crystal seems more like something they just had to do.
