The manga version, created by Naoko Takeuchi, is called simply Stars.

The anime series has never been officially translated into English, but it has been broadcast in several other Western markets, including parts of Latin America and Europe.

Story

In the manga, the protagonist (Usagi Tsukino) and her friends had entered high school during the previous story arc; in the anime, it is delayed until the beginning of this one. All five of the girls have passed the entrance exams, and Minako has joined Usagi, Ami, and Makoto at Jūban High School. Rei continues at her private Catholic school as before.

As the story begins, Usagi must say goodbye to her boyfriend, Mamoru Chiba, who is leaving Japan to study abroad at Harvard. While in the airport, he gives Usagi a ring to show his intention to marry her when he returns. The evil Sailor Galaxia appears for the first time and immediately destroys Mamoru, who (despite being male) bears the Sailor Crystal of Earth.

In the manga, Mamoru is killed right in front of Usagi with many spectators. Unable to cope with this, she represses the memory and forgets that he has died. In the anime, he is not attacked until after the plane leaves; it is struck by a bright light while in the air, but his fate is unclear until the end of the series. Throughout both versions of the story, Usagi writes numerous letters to him but receives no reply. Psychological trauma is a type of damage to the psyche that occurs as a result of a traumatic event. ...


Shortly after these events, a new pop band rises to popularity: the Three Lights. Its three attractive members start attending high school with Usagi and her friends, but their personalities clash; only one of them, Seiya, gradually becomes Usagi's friend. Around the same time, the mysterious Sailor Starlights appear in battle, fighting the same foes as the Sailor Team but claiming different motivations and no hope of alliance. They are searching for their princess, Kakyuu, and do not care about the fate of Earth. In fact, they have disguised themselves as the Three Lights, and as males, in order to try and find her. (In the manga, they merely cross-dress; in the anime, they physically take on male bodies when in civilian form. Creator Naoko Takeuchi was strongly displeased by this change to the anime, feeling that it undermined her rule that only girls could be Senshi.[3]) J-pop (or Jpop) is an abbreviation of Japanese pop. ...

As the story progresses, a tiny girl called ChibiChibi also appears and attaches herself to Usagi and her family. Sailor Moon and the other Senshi continue their fight against the Sailor Animamates and gradually come to learn more about the Starlights; in the anime, this spans many episodes, but in the manga it happens fairly rapidly. The Sailor Animamates , occasionally romanized as Sailor Anima-Mates) are a fictional squadron in the Sailor Moon metaseries. ...


As each series approaches its conclusion, the plot divergences become wider and wider. In the anime, Sailor Crystals are simply called "true star seeds," ChibiChibi's true identity is completely different, and the final battle and objectives of the enemies ultimately are different. Of all the anime arcs that followed the manga, this last deviated the most sharply from the original story.

When the Starlights finally find Princess Kakyuu, Sailor Moon and ChibiChibi join them in travelling to the Galaxy Cauldron—the source of the Sailor Wars, and the location of Sailor Galaxia's castle. Once they arrive, they have to defeat a series of evil Sailor Senshi who are protecting the way. Sailor ChibiChibi manages to save Sailor Kakyuu and Sailor Moon, but they must watch the Sailor Starlights die.

Under Galaxia's power, the Sailor Team attacks Sailor Moon.

Sailor Moon, heartbroken, now must face her dearest friends, the Sailor Team, who have been twisted along with Mamoru into Sailor Galaxia's minions. Sailor Galaxia dissolves them back into nothing and the final battle between Galaxia and Sailor Moon begins. With Mamoru destroyed, Sailor Chibi Moon cannot be born, so she vanishes.

Usagi meets everyone else within the Cauldron, and then Guardian Cosmos. Guardian Cosmos says that she can return to being a star in the Cauldron forever, or return as she is back to the life she had before. Usagi decides to go back to her human form. She sees Chibiusa just before she leaves, who says she will be waiting in the 30th century. The following is a list of supporting characters from the Sailor Moon metaseries. ...


Usagi wakes up next to Mamoru in bed, in a place that appears to be the new Crystal Tokyo. She asks him to "say it again," and he does--"Marry me, Usako." Their wedding is shown, and afterward Usagi thinks to herself that she can sense a "new star" which is soon to be born (possibly referring to Chibiusa). Mamoru looks at her and thinks to himself that Sailor Soldiers will come and go, but that Sailor Moon will be eternal, and will be the brightest star of them all. The manga was translated into English by TOKYOPOP (then Mixx). ...


Anime version

The anime series actually begins with a continuation of the previous plot arc, perhaps to fill time while Takeuchi worked on the manga. In these episodes, Queen Nehellenia is unsealed and prompted by a voice to attack Sailor Moon. Mirror shards rain down on the earth, getting stuck in people's eyes, including Mamoru Chiba. The victims become more and more withdrawn, surrounding themselves with mirrors. Nehellenia's monsters attack and awaken Sailor Saturn. Nehellenia kidnaps Mamoru, and the Sailor Senshi split up and attempt to rescue him. The Sailor Senshi are all captured and sealed in mirrors. Usagi falls under an enchantment that causes her to forget her mission, as she plays in a garden of flowers. She sees a rose (actually the earring of the defeated Sailor Jupiter), which restores her memories of Tuxedo Mask. Now aware of what she must do, Usagi manages to save Mamoru and her friends, and heal Nehellenia. The Dead Moon Circus are the primary villains from the Sailormoon metaverses fourth season, SuperS (pronounced zu-paa-zu). Spoiler warning: During an eclipse of the sun, a strange circus floats into the town of Juuban, Tokyo, but no one seems to take notice. ... Mamoru Chiba , Darien in the English versions) is the primary male protagonist of the Sailor Moon metaseries. ... Sailor Saturn ) is one of the central characters in the Sailor Moon metaseries. ... Sailor Jupiter ) is one of the central characters in the Sailor Moon metaseries. ...


In truth, it was Sailor Galaxia who had released Nehellenia from her seal, to force the reawakening of Sailor Saturn. (This is not revealed until the final confrontation with Sailor Galaxia.) The story begins as described above, with Mamoru leaving and being killed on the way, and the arrival of the Starlights and ChibiChibi.


Unlike their manga counterparts, the Sailor Animamates of the anime do not know who the bearers of the Sailor Crystals (here called "true star seeds") are. Their method is to find individuals with exceptional talents, attack them, and take their star seeds. If the star seeds are unexceptional, the Sailor Animamate abandons them to turn into a monster, a (phage) which the Sailor Senshi must fight to distract the phage so that Eternal Sailor Moon can heal the monster.

Though also a female Senshi, Seiya develops strong feelings for Usagi.

Conflicts erupt between the Guardian Senshi, Outer Senshi, and Starlights, both as civilians and as Senshi. The Outer Senshi view the Starlights as invaders and are suspicious of them because, as they say, the Animamates are also Sailor Senshi. As this plays out, Seiya develops strong romantic feelings for Usagi; this is the primary romantic subplot of the season. From his point of view, Usagi is pining after someone who has abandoned her, and he feels he could give her more. Seiya's interest in Usagi causes Michiru and Haruka to think ill of him, fearing he'll try to use Usagi to his advantage. The other two Starlights, Taiki and Yaten, form only tentative friendships with specific Guardian Senshi; Ami in Taiki's case, Minako in Yaten's. Image File history File links 3li151. ... Image File history File links 3li151. ... The Sailor Team. ...


As the end of the season approaches, Galaxia finally invades Earth, having conquered the rest of the galaxy at that point. Each of the three groups (Guardians, Outers, and Starlights) confront Galaxia separately. The Guardian Senshi die while trying to save the Starlights; Pluto and Saturn are killed by Uranus and Neptune when the latter two pretend to betray Sailor Moon so they can reach Galaxia themselves. Uranus and Neptune are subsequently killed by Galaxia when they try to take Galaxia's starseed to no avail.


The Starlights once again engage Galaxia in combat and successfully deal physical damage to the golden queen when they combine attacks, the first injury Galaxia sustains. Nevertheless, Galaxia is able to overpower them in the end.


It is revealed that Sailor Galaxia was once the most powerful force for good in the galaxy, and that she had made the sacrifice of sealing Chaos inside herself. To protect her own star seed from being corrupted, she sent it to Earth to become the Light of Hope and find the person who could defeat Chaos, should Galaxia lose control. Just as the name suggests, this charming fellow was the final enemy of Sailor Moon, and he vowed to utterly destory the universe. ...


Finally, Eternal Sailor Moon and Sailor Galaxia engage in their battle, with Moon wielding ChibiChibi as a Sword of Sealing. During the battle, Galaxia is fully consumed by Chaos and sprouts demonic wings. Knowing the good Galaxia has done, Sailor Moon refuses to fight her and is almost defeated, reverting back to her normal form. Completely vulnerable and symbolically naked, Usagi offers Galaxia forgiveness, and through this effort is able to heal her; she uses the Silver Crystal to purify Galaxia's body and drive out Chaos, returning the Golden Senshi to her true form. The Mystical Silver Crystal as it first appears. ...


All those who had been killed during the war against Chaos are returned, whole, and Galaxia departs to help guide them home; this revives Mamoru, the Guardians and the Outers as well. ChibiChibi and the Starlights also must leave, and Usagi and her friends return to their lives, knowing that Chaos has been dispersed back into a small force within the hearts of individuals, where it belongs. The show ends with Usagi kissing Mamoru under a full moon after reaffirming their love for each other.
