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 original Sailor Moon metastases and covers the final thirty-four episodes of the original anime series.

The season's first six episodes (Episodes 167-172) continues where the story left off in the fourth 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 Soldiers in order to rule the galaxy as the strongest and most powerful Sailor Senshi in the entire Milky Way galaxy.

The series made a number of changes from the previous ones, including Sailor Moon and the four Inner Senshi finally advancing to high school and introducing the Sailor Senshi 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 Densetsu song that had been used for the previous four seasons.

All four Outer Sailor Soldiers 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.

However, Viz Media, having acquired the rights to adaptation for all the anime's seasons in 2014, will release an English dubbed version by 2019.

  • Naoko Takeuchi was angered by the idea of making the Sailor Starlights male in their civilian forms and turn female when they transform into Sailor Senshi.
  • The start of the opening of Sailor Moon Crystal (Seasons 1 & 2) was very similar to that of the Sailor Stars opening.
