Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R debuted on March 6th, 1993 and completed its initial run of 43 episodes on March 14th, 1994. The series' two openings reused "Moonlight Densetsu" (DALI version) and its singular closing was set to "Otome no Policy" by Yoko Ishida.

Sailor Moon R is the only series to contain two completely unrelated story arcs and two independent antagonist groups. The first thirteen episodes follow the Sailor Soldiers and their battle against a pair of Aliens and their mysterious life-giving tree. The anime is the only continuity where this story arc and its villains appear. It was created so the manga story could catch up with the anime. The remaining episodes deal with the appearance of Chibi-usa and the battle with the Black Moon Clan, villains who travel from the future.

According to the booklet released with the Memorial Song Box, the R stands for Romance, Return, and Rondo.

Sailor Moon R was the first of three consecutive Sailor Moon series for which a movie was produced. A short special played with the movie, called Make Up! Sailor Soldiers.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R was originally based upon the Black Moon arc (Acts 14 - 26) of the manga. The R storyline and its characters have also been re-imagined in the following musicals:

  • Tanjou! Ankoku no Princess Black Lady (2001 Summer Special)
  • Tanjou! Ankoku no Princess Black Lady (Kaiteiban) - Wakusei Nemesis no Nazo - (2002 Winter Special)
  • 10th ANNIVERSARY Festival - Ai no Sanctuary (2002 Spring Special)
