Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon Sailor Stars (美少女戦士セーラームーン セーラースターズ, Bishoujo Senshi Seeraa Muun Seeraa Sutaazu), (commonly referred to as just Sailor Stars) is the 5th and final season in the Sailor Moon metastases and covers the final 34 episodes of the anime series.

Information

The season's first 6 episodes (Episodes 167-172) continue where the story left off in the 4th season, regarding the fate of Queen Nehellenia, and it then revolves around Sailor Galaxia and her quest to take Star Seeds from humans and other Sailor Guardians in order to rule the galaxy as the strongest and most powerful Sailor Guardian in the entire Milky Way galaxy.

The series made a number of changes from the previous ones, including Sailor Moon and the four Inner Sailor Guardians finally advancing to high school and introducing the Sailor Guardians from outside the Solar System. The Outer Solar System Sailor Senshi returned following their inadvertent absence from the 4th season. The show also had a new introduction with the Sailor Star Song, changing from the Moonlight Legend song that had been used for the previous 4 seasons.

All four Outer Sailor Guardians appear as recurring characters in their evolved Super Sailor forms (given to them by Sailor Saturn herself) but are never actually seen transforming on screen, despite being seen alone on several occasions.

This series was not dubbed during the original run of the English dub around the mid-2000s, because the license for this season was cut off by Toei Animation from being distributed anywhere outside Japan; a common misconception was that it was because of the genderbending nature of the Sailor Starlights, which wouldn't get past American censors due to possibly promoting transgender and homosexual themes.

Viz Media acquired the rights to adaptation for all the anime's seasons in 2014; the first part of the English dubbed version was released on DVD on June 18, 2019.

Trivia

  • The start of the opening of Sailor Moon Crystal (Seasons 1 & 2) was very similar to that of the Sailor Stars opening.
  • After it was not been dubbed by the CWi English Dub in 18 years, this marks the first time being dubbed by the Viz Media English dub after they redubbed the previous seasons from Sailor Moon through Sailor Moon SuperS.
