Ok, so, in episode 17 the moon is featured prominently in a couple of shots, and we see it's in the crescent phase...

Except it's not. That's not what the crescent phase looks like. What it looks like is a full moon with an object in front of it, blocking the view from earth.

There's another bundle of life fibers on its way.

Yeah but the moon is from of space and the fibers are from out of space.

So the moon is made of FIBERS.
>>
Yeah, the Moon can never be simply lit up like that in real life, but it's probably just stylised.

>>101849003
If you're suggesting it's an eclipse, the Earth's shadow is much larger than that on the Moon.
>>
It doesn't look like a phase or an eclipse. So either it is space yarn or it's just how to chose to draw it.

Congratulations OP.

You, yes you, have won the global lottery to be the first person to identify the secret Takarada Conglomerate Dotonobori Orbital Anti-Life Fiber Combat Battle Station Array! You have earned yourself a prize of ten thousand whopping Takaradabucks and a chance to tour the battle station as it gets ready to purge the Earth of the alien menace once and for all.

>>101849128
I'd accept that if they hadn't spent a ton of time focusing on the moon when it had no symbolic importance in that sequence

Wow, fucking dropped. Someone tell Imaishi to buy a fucking telescope before touching anime again.

>>101849128
Fair point.

OP, don't listen to everyone else, I noticed it too. However it's probably just a style choice.
>>
It's just Triggermoon.

I don't deny it's emphasis in the episode, but just on the moon, not the actual design, which is probably another tip to western art styles.
>>
>>101849214

>>101849157
Well, the Moon symbolises things like calmness, beauty and romance in Japan (apparently), and it made sense for me as a backdrop to Ryuuko's reflective moment.

A lot of people just draw the moon like that.

WOW. COULD IT BE THAT ALL THIS TIME SAILOR MOON WAS POWERED BY LIFE FIBERS?

What else would you see you fucking idiot? When the moon goes crescent then ofcourse you can see whats behind it.

I saw that in an anime recently (don't remember which), and it made me mad. They fixed it in the next episode, though. I don't even know why I was mad in the first place, though. It's not like I'm expecting realism in my Chinese cartoons.

>>
>>101848912
OP, I just tried to calculate this shit based on lunar cycles, the average speed of objects in space that aren't caught in Earth's gravitational pull, the rate of the moon's orbit and other factors.

This isn't even fucking possible. Objects in space simply don't affect our moon's reflection of light like our planet does. If they did, they'd be both ginormous and therefore visible from the Earth.

Good day, sir.
>>
>>101849864
Christianity took off in Japan in a big way, you dumb fuck.
>>
>>101850052
Well obviously the unidentified object is absorbing 100% of the photons that it comes into contact with.

>>
>>101850087
>Merri kurisumasu, retsu buy the annuar KFC for kurisumasu

Nigga that ain't big, that's commercialism. Sure there's SOME there, but not like in Korea. I think the biggest moment Christianity had in Japan was right before they purged the island of it and foreign influence.
>>
>>101850138

The reason that there aren't that many Christians in Japan is because Christianity spread so fast that they started massacring Japanese Christians to protect their tradition.
>>
>>101850173
I wonder how good those fucking Missions must have been to convince a completely different culture about shit like Jeezus and heaven and hell and shit for everyone to just completely believe it all despite it coming from filthy boat foreigners. They must have had that shit down to a science.
>>
>>101850138
Christmas simply isn't a Christian holiday to the Japanese.

At the same time, around 1% of the Japanese have identified as Christian. For a nation that started with Shinto, adopted Buddhism in several sects and then took on Christianity, that's pretty big. Especially for an island nation.
>>
>>101850256
Christians are very persuasive. They even got the Emperor of Rome to buy into their shit before they were dominant anywhere.
>>
>>101850256
I think it's more down to trusting that someone wouldn't be talking about it so matter-of-factly if they weren't sure it was true
>>
>>101850256
Christian missionaries were really good at what they did. That's how they managed convert some or all of every place they expanded to that wasn't already preoccupied by Muslims. Hell, most of the Mesoamericans were converting right away and they had an even smaller contact with Abrahamic faith compared to the Japs.

When some guys on huge boats that are more advanced than you and own half the world come preaching about this Jesus guy, it makes a lot of people want to switch.
>>
>>101850387
And that they'd often die rather than recant. People think that if they were that sure about it then there must be something to it.
>>
Spoilers: That is a very common "artistic" way to draw the moon.

When your country has been at civil war since before your father was born and foreigners show up a message of peace and powerful new weapons to use against anyone who disagrees, it probably sounds pretty good.
>>
If Japan hadn't crushed and exterminates its population during the heyday of conversion, Japan would likely have become partially or majority Christian by the later 20th Century. We missed out on all those possible animu interpretations of the Bible.
>>
>>101850783
Good. I'm sad that the west lost its original faiths.

>>101850256
Because it's a pacifistic slave religion.

Christianity was pretty big from the moment Japan opened its ports. It also got purged, hard.

>>101850256
If Sengoku Basara is anything to be believed, they had giant robots.
>>
>>101850256
Christian missionaries were extraordinarily good at their jobs. A big part of it had to do with their willingness to incorporate local beliefs into the Christian faith, which is why you get seemingly weird mixed-culture practices in a lot of foreign Christian populations.

Interestingly, the Catholic church hated it when they did this, but they would never have been so successful in converting so many people if they hadn't.

It's a stylized moon OP, and i'll explain why:

1) If there were an object in-front of it, it would have passed in mere moments; but we see it stay exactly there for several different scenes

2) if it were a sapient creature waiting to pounce on earth, why would it 'hide' in the ONE place it can be seen at night and in the day? Why would it not just hide in the regular dark sky, or BEHIND the moon?

3) It's not a lunar eclipse either, as that too would have passed it mere moments.

It's just a stylized moon, nothing more.
