Saban Moon by Murder-at-the-diner Saban Moon by Murder-at-the-diner
Redesigned by me! :)

If you dont know what saban moon is google it cause our way out  the loop!
The designs were awful and I had did designs for them awhile back.i tried to stay as close to the designs as possible.
Gave 'em diff body types (as it should be) and I gave mercury leg braces when she transfoms as I think a giant wheel chair in battle would be difficult, its actually based on an Oc scout I had as a kid. 
As much as people hated this idea, I think it was awesome! well, if they went back and worked on things ,like taking out the live action, working on designs, animation... but I loved that the scouts were from different backgrounds! I think with alittle bit of elbow grease it would have ben awesome! ok, a lot of elbow grease I aint going to lie. those guys had to be high when they did that hot mess.

I always laugh at the Saban Moon remake because it more or less REEKS of a lot of things that were going on in American animation in the 90s. There were good intentions to be diverse but they forgot one thing and that was actually doing something with it rather than just saying 'HERE! HAVE A BLACK ONE, AN ASIAN ONE! BUT THE LEADER WILL ALWAYS BE THE BLOND, WHITE ONE!'

On top of that, I get the feeling that the makers of this show were still under the impression that EVERYONE in SM, the original of course, were White due to them not being drawn in an 'American' style where we ALWAYS detail the background of a person and unless they look a specific way, they MUST be Anglo, right? It's basically this type of mind-set that kept a lot of dubs DUMBED DOWN to their actual locations and erased a lot of the cultural references that were in the original, hence the localization/Americanization and everyone thinking that the blond character was White because yellow hair and NOT simply because anime has rainbow hair for nearly everyone and they usually have other design sets for characters who are NOT Japanese.

One thing I DO want to say; Mercury. Yeah, we all know she was in a wheel chair and while the idea would have been cool I want to go back in time and SLAP the person who came up with the design for the damn thing because it is the most impracticable, ugly looking piece of equipment EVER. It was supposed to be flying but all they did were put on 12 foot boards on the BOTTOM of the damn thing more or less making the point of the chair USELESS since it's supposed to HELP her get around but with those things STICKING OUT FROM THE SIDE, and placed near the bottom no less, if she moved back or forwards at the wrong time she would knock everyone down and then there's the thought of how she could get into doors.

Dear lord, have these people never seen Prof. X's hoverchairs over the years? Or think that they could make a good looking hover-chair with some nice designs that could hover without the needless wings? I'm sorry if I sound mean but that WAS a terrible idea and it LOOKED terrible and I can't stop laughing at the thought that someone OKAYED that because they demanded one of the scouts be in a wheelchair while making the worst design for a super wheelchair ever! AND THE THING DIDN'T EVEN NEEDS THE WINGS TO FLY! They seriously are there just to be 'cool' and 'pretty' so they don't need to be there at all.

Plus....the horn sticking out from in-between her legs when she sat in it.

That shot lasers.

......

Yeeeeeeeah, I'll stick to ice bubbles than you.

All in all, your revision looks MILES better because it puts THOUGHT into the design rather than just SLAPPING a bunch of stuff together and then saying DONE. You can see the American influence but see the ORIGINAL influence as well, mostly in it still looking like a bishojo style series and not making everyone suffer from '90s toonitus' where everyone looked so....HARD despite being only like 16 years old.

I am kinda glad saban moon by toonmakers never really got around. It puts the manga and the Japanese anime to shame. No offense. But the way you drew it looks good.

Ok, how is it that I never saw this pic and all of it's brilliance? The leg braces, one being Japanese, another being black, heck there's even a pirate in this group!!! That is awesome. Seriously if this was what the show looked like, I would watch it. :D

Only mars is Japanese here. This is based on an American television series that was supposed to be a spin off of sailor moon but obviously never became anything. Venus is Latin moon is white Jupiter is blk mars is Asian and I supposed mercury is Scottish.i think it's a super lovely idea that they came from different background I honestly think it would have been more interesting :>

Well, i don't want Sailor Moon to be like Jojo's Bizzare Adventure Part 3, where main character was japanese, his grandpa is british-american, and his friend is a Egyptian, later he mets another japanese schoolboy, then finally they meet french fencer.

I'm not sure I understand you exactly.but it's weird you seem to not like diversity. Ppl do come from a mixed background culture,even the Japanese can have children with other cultures so I don't see why it would weird you out XD. Theirs no thing stoping them from procreating.
