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) 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 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 entire galaxy as the strongest and most powerful Sailor Soldier in existence.
The series made a number of changes from the previous ones, including the five Inner Senshi finally advancing to high school and introducing the Sailor Senshi from outside the Solar System. The Outer Senshi returned following their absence from the SuperS series. 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. The 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.
This season remains the only season in the anime to not be officially dubbed into English, French and Hungarian. However, on May 16, 2014, Viz Media announced that they have bought and will re-dub and re-release the entire Sailor Moon series including releasing Sailor Stars in English for the first time and will both stream the series online and release them on Blu-Ray and DVD, in addition to dubbing the greatly modified and improved anime series of Sailor Moon Crystal.
