As some of you may know, all the animated gifs I have produced thus far have been created from Sailor Moon R: the movie. I wanted to start off this blog with the R movie because it carries particular significance and sentimental value to me. My original intention was to transition from the R movie to episode 1 (Sailor Moon classic) and from there on, proceed chronologically with my gifs. However, SMC recently released a newly encoded “final” version of all the Sailor Moon movies. The quality of the new releases is significantly better than the quality of the DVDs I have in my possession and from which I produce my gifs.
Here’s a comparison:
For this reason, I have decided to postpone my gif-making until SMC releases their “final” version of the Sailor Moon TV series. In the meantime, I will be producing a few more gifs from SMC’s copy of the R movie, but as a forewarning, I will not be updating this blog with the same level of regularity as before.
