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 can't believe that i used to like this season as a kid growing up. I can now see why though.

seeing as i am a huge fan of romance and stuff, I listed this series as a favorite because i thought the sailor moon r series stands for romance, especially when it has mamoru and usagi kissing more in the r series than anywhere else. Boy was i ever wrong.

don't get me wrong, i enjoyed this series, especially in the english dub (before cloverway owned the series and totally ruined the voices, although dic is no angel either.) But since i started watching it in read more

Both are magical girl anime where cute girls fight demons with flashy magical staffs. 
Same monster of the week formula with five main heroines. Both shows also focus on friendships between these heroines. 
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. 
Both have to do with magical girls but the difference is that they have completely different plots. Also, all the characters are lovable! 
They are both magical girl animes. They also feature an awesom romance story and the charcters are very likable.
