Oh, just the anime? Bah.

Anyway, there wouldn't be any difference, lest you feel like figuring out how it could happen without some kind of paradox. (Particularly in the case of Wiseman and the Dark Moon family being handled more effectively, as suggested by Claymade.) And if you avoided that issue by going the route of branching into alternate universes, then we're not really talking about a linear comparison, are we? In which case, I fail to see the point of comparing them. Well, unless this topic happened to be in the Fic Research forum...

As for why the sailor senshi aren't in their super forms in R (same as in the manga): that's because the series hadn't been planned to take into account future events, as they hadn't intended to go beyond R until after the fact.

Well, the method of time travel used in the series is pretty explicitly the "malleable future" type used in Back to the Future and other films of its ilk. We see it firsthand when Chibi Usa starts to fade away when the timestream starts changing in Stars, and malleable-future is the only time travel method of the three main ones that accounts for phenomena like that.

But in a malleable timeline that would mean that there would only be one Crystal Tokyo, and thus not another to compare it to. Because if future knowledge makes it possible for past Usagi to stop Wiseman and the Dark Moon family once she's Neo-Queen Serenity, and negates her past self's reason for going to the future, the change in the future ultimately affects the past, rather than it being the other way around (which is most typical).
