A weird and unnecessary entry in the Sailor Moon franchise, this "Hero Club" project is comprised of 3 weak recap episodes of Sailor Stars (the last arc) which aired in a TV time slot alongside other recaps like this from 1996 till 1997.
Because it aired almost in the same time as Stars, I'm guessing it was made to promote the show by showing us how good it is but it actually fails as a recap. The first episode show the defeat of Nehellenia but without the battle part (the most important), it shows some random dialogue and narration by some characters but it really doesn't
feel that tied up together.
The remaining episodes spend time with random fights against Phages, Nezu appears from the Animamates team but we'll get a glimpse of Siren and Crow and we see Galaxia in only 2 scenes. The pacing is all over the place and it doesn't really help that we never see the end of the fight. It's like Toei made 3 30 minutes long previews to promote the main show and teased the hell out of the viewers. If you wanna know the plot you better read the synopsis from somewhere cause this anime won't tell you. The only think that you'll get here is that new enemies appear and the sailor soldiers have to defeat them (that if you didn't watch Stars).
It's unwatchable before Stars and unwatchable after Stars (because we have Memorial), it's just a quick preview to hype/tease the audience and they never show the last battle against Galaxia or any cool fight from beginning to end.
The only good part is that we see a lot of transformation scenes and some special attacks and we have some short narration but don't expect anything note worthy. Also the usual Starlights songs inserted from time to time.
No Sailor Moon fan will get angry if you skip this one, you'd be better off watching AMVs.
