Synopsis

The season is divided into two arcs: One arc being an anime filler (to give Takeuchi Naoko time to make the next manga), and the other arc being the actual Black Moon plot.

The first arc shows Usagi and Co. having their memories restored from the first season. Their enemies are a pair of aliens, Ail and Ann, who are seeking human energy to restore their life tree. Mamoru had yet to recover his memories and he appeared as the Moonlight Knight rather than Tuxedo Kamen. This arc only lasted for 13 episodes.

The second arc introduces Chibi-Usa, a little girl from the future who is searching for the Silver Crystal. The new enemies are the Black Moon Clan, comprising of the Ayakashi sisters (Cooan, Beruche, Karaberas, and Petz), Rubeus, Safir, Esmeraude, Prince Demando, and Wiseman. They too want the Silver Crystal so that they can take over the future. The Sailor Senshi's adventure continues...

After watching the original series for the first time in many years, I was very excited to start this series. Sailor Moon R proved itself to be a great continuation of the storyline. While it perhaps isn’t as strong as the original in whole, in parts it surpasses it.

Story wise, Sailor Moon R is broken up into two story arcs. The first is filler not related to the source material, and the second is the Black Moon arc which was very good. The first arc isn’t bad but well you can tell its filler. The sailor warriors recover their memories read more

Hello everyone. We've got a bit of a special review today. That's right, it's number 200, although those of you reading this on Wordpress haven't gotten access to all of them yet, but it's only a matter of time until the last review of yesteryear gets uploaded so please be patient. We've been through a lot in that time and not just in terms of anime covered. The format has changed quite a bit and I think all those changes have been for the better. When I hit my hundredth review I looked at the first series of Sailor Moon, both the English and Japanese read more

To tell the truth, this wasn't my favorite season of Sailor Moon- I have mixed feelings about it... shows in my scores. I consider it the worst but most important. It was the season that brought back Sailor Moon, and was connected to the rest of the seasons in a special way because of that. That's why I give it 7 overall, otherwise, it would of been a 5.

Story was pretty good. I like how there was a huge cliff hanger on the first season. And I also like the build up on the first arc-But it was a "filler". The story introduced a mass read more

I heard some pretty bad comments for this season, and how it's considered to be, if not the worst, the second worst to SuperS Sailor moon season. I honestly can't see it.
For me this season is the best out of all 5 seasons and my reasons is that it's the "darkest" and "deepest" of them all.

Story 9/10
The first arc with the doom tree is a filler, yet I really enjoyed it. Both the vilains were likeable and interesting and the story of it wasn't so bad either, also I liked that it ended positive for them. The second arc with the Black Moon read more

They both have magical girls with awesome transformations. Aside from that, they also have similar plots that are very different at the same time. And the characters are all enjoyable.
