I would totally watch this.
It actually doesn’t look too bad, but there is a bit less dynamism to the posing. I think that might a side effect of what the artist is trying to do more than an issue with moe styling. Also, they’re a lot straighter-waisted which I don’t feel is a huge moe issue, but does crop up a fair bit. BRB OVERANALYZING PICTURES.
Eugh… Moe is shit.
^hey hey it’s very rude to say that especially right on the artist’s drawing! If you have an issue with the artist’s preference of style then why don’t you make a separate text post, or better yet, not even reblog it at all? Yes it’s true that you have the freedom to blog whatever you want, but there is actually a person who put time into the drawing and automatically judging it based on the style it’s drawn in without taking into account the effort put into it is really insulting?? impolite???? inconsiderate???????
Fine, here goes. I hate the moe artstyle because it is one of the least engaging artstyles in existence. It is stiff, lifeless, boring and basic. The characters look like, and most of the time are, witless, brainless, spineless, lifeless, airheaded bags of meat worthy of nothing but contempt. A perfect example of this is the anime K-On. I fail to see any allure in it.

….What? How does that have /anything/ to do with the art style?
I have many things to say on this topic, most of which would extoll the virtues of the fine upstanding female characters in various “moe”-styled anime such as PMMM, but I’m not going to get much into it. You fail to see any allure in it, and this statement is of course valid as far as your opinion goes.
It does not mean you can then bust out a generalization like “moe is shit” whilst directly replying to an artist’s work as if that generalization is actual fact. If you have an overwhelmingly negative opinion, you are of course entitled to express it on the internet (far away from the vigorous kick in the pants that such opinions might bring you IRL), but I see no reason why you need to tell an artist that their style (and by extension, their entire body of work), is “shit.” That’s just rude. You might feel that it is stiff/boring/basic/etc, and find it un-engaging, but that is why you hate it, it doesn’t make it a fact. I don’t feel that way. The original artist obviously doesn’t feel that way. The creators of Sailor Moon evidently also didn’t feel that way. In future, please cover your ass by putting “I think” in front of your statements to avoid people like me from cringing and feeling the need to make posts like these.
EDIT : I’d also like to point out that facial style has absolutely nothing to do with anatomical skill. I don’t really see how you can generalize a style as “lifeless” when moe art can display dynamic poses and a good understanding of anatomy on many occasions u-u it just depends on the artist. Some drawings of “realism” can also look very static because of a lack of understanding about anatomy etc on the part of the artist, so it’s really all relative.
