This season makes a turning point in the Sailor Moon story. The Sailor Senshi are confronted by a new enemy, the Death Busters. Rei had a premonition that this enemy would rule the world in an era called the Silence. To do this, the Death Busters need to find the three Talismans that would summon the Holy Grail. However, two mysterious Sailor Senshi, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, plan to find the Talismans before them... but without Sailor Moon's help.

It always seems that the longer a series goes on that it almost inevitably gets worse. That can pretty much be said for Sailor Moon S, the third season of the franchise. While it is not a bad series (far from it), I found that it was the most difficult of the three I have seen so far to watch.

It has always been a peeve of mine when a story develops to a point and then mystically finds itself reverting back. Sailor Moon S suffers from the introduction of some pretty unlikable characters plus the reintroduction of an annoying one. The read more

Ou, I was a teenager when I started to watch and be a fan of this anime. We were a group of fans which imagined that we are SailorMoon or SailorMars and so. We watched these episodes and cried with characters etc. That was real fun.
Now I think this is one of the precious animes I have ever seen because it is funny un childish in its sort kind of way, it is romantic and a little bit nude but isn't too pervert to show to children, it shows different kind of situations that could happen in real life too (mostly metaphorical of course) and read more

(This review proceeds from Sailor Moon, so start from the beginning if you haven’t already!)

Sailor Moon S was the point in the series where the show got noticeably better than the previous few seasons. Infact, I won’t even undermine it, I love Sailor Moon S.

I’ll start off with the characters, because this season is the strongest in that sense. Introducing Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, who were rewritten in the old english dub to be cousins in order to cover up the fact that they were depicted as being very close to each other. I think it’s fair to say that everyone knows that the read more

Several things I took into account when I left R, the 2nd season of Sailor Moon.
The biggest one, now that Ikuhara has complete dominance of the series, will it be better than the surprising R?
Turns out I didn't take enough things into account; not only was Sailor Moon more popular than I imagined, but Toei must've not felt that they could compete with other angst-ridden series airing at the same time with author's content.

It took a while, but S is really no better than the 1st season of Sailor Moon. Padded, reverse character development, gambling the meat of the promise at the end; just makes read more

Anime: Heartcatch Precure!
Same genre anime, the villains are trying to get the pure hearts from humans in Sailor Moon S, while the villains in Heartcatch Precure are trying to get the heart flowers from humans.

Anime: Shoujo Kakumei Utena
When I watched Sailor Moon S, I was reminded much of Revolutionary Girl Utena (though if memory serves me correctly, Sailor Moon S came around before Utena). There are several aspects of this particular season which simply scream Utena.

First of all, Sailor Moon S is darker than the previous two seasons, and the Death Busters seem much more evil than the Black Moon Clan and the Dark Kingdom, primarily because the Death Busters seek to destroy the universe instead of conquer it. The darker mood of it all strongly mirrors the dark and somewhat mysterious mood that surrounds Utena (especially in later seasons  read more

Anime: Shugo Chara!
Both series star magical girls who save people's pure selves, which are tainted with by some evil force, by using their powers. Both series also have a very shoujo animated feel with a lot of romance and comedy, too!
