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 Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Sērā Sutāzu), (commonly reffered to as just Sailor Stars) is the fifth and final season in the Sailor Moon metastases and covers the final thirty-four episodes of the anime series.

The season's first six episodes (Episodes 167-172) continue where the story left off in the fourth season, regarding the fate of Queen Nehelenia, 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 Senshi returned following their inadvertent absence from the fourth 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 four 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 in June 18, 2019.

  • 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.
