    same here. I was expecting (stop reading this if you still haven’t seen Air TV, or played the original game, and miraculously managed to avoid spoilers up to this point… in which case, you go fucking watch the series, now!)…. Yukito sacrificing himself, possessing his doll, and somehow going back in time to reincarnate as a crow would’ve done something for Misuzu herself… but it was really only good for her cycle of reincarnation (and even that was merely implied). The girl was still …

    Hell, we don’t even need all of them introduced. Just wait until Mars shows up (I expect in episode 3), then the differences between the manga and the first anime should be more readily apparent.

  • Sailor Moon Crystal Quite Bedazzling:
