Bishoujo Sailor Moon SuperS is the fourth series of Sailor Moon. It ran on Japanese television from March 4, 1995 to March 2, 1996, consisting of 39 episodes. SuperS also includes a three episode special that aired between episodes 131 and 132. SuperS had two openings, set to the Moon Lips version of "Moonlight Densetsu" and two closing animations and themes, "Watashitachi ni Naritakute" by Miwako Fujitani and "Rashiku Ikimashou" by Meu.

SuperS was the last series to spawn a theatrical release, the only one of which had an official title: "Sailor 9 Senshi Shuuketsu! Black Dream Hole no Kiseki!" ("The 9 Sailor Soldiers Get Together! Miracle of the Black Dream Hole!"). A special short movie was produced to play with the movie, entitled Ami's First Love.

The name "SuperS" is pronounced as "supers," not "Super S" despite the appearance of the title. SuperS most likely refers to the upgraded forms of the Sailor Team.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS was originally based upon the Dream arc (Acts 39 - 49) of the manga. The SuperS storyline and characters have also been re-imagined in the following musicals:

  • 1995 Summer Special Musical Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS Yume Senshi - Ai - Eien ni...
  • 1996 Spring Special Musical Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS (Kaiteiban) Yume Senshi - Ai - Eien ni... Saturn Fukkatsu Hen!
  • Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS Special Musical Show
  • 1998 Summer Special Musical Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Shin - Densetsu Kourin BEGINNING OF THE NEW LEGEND
Series Summary

During a lunar eclipse, the Dead Moon Circus descends to Earth. The Circus' tent remains unnoticed, and life continues on as normal. The Circus is in search of Pegasus and the Golden Crystal. Zirconia dispatches the Amazon Trio, who begin searching the Dream Mirrors of humans for Pegasus.

Pegasus gives Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon new transformations and powers. Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus receive similar power-ups. During this time, Pegasus begins communicating solely and secretly with Chibi-usa, who begins to develop a strong bond with him.

The Amazon Trio quickly runs out of second chances, and after learning they themselves aren't human, become desparate to find Pegasus. They eventually betray Nehellenia and save Usagi. Pegasus grants the Trio their wish of becoming human permanantly.

The Amazoness Quartet replace the Trio and begin targeting humans to locate the Golden Mirror, where Pegasus is hiding. It is revealed that Pegasus is Helios, the guardian of Elysion and the Golden Crystal. The Sailor Team faces off with the Quartet, and invades the Dead Moon's circus tent. Chibi Moon is kidnapped, and the Golden Crystal is stolen from Pegasus. When the Sailor Team faces off with Nehellenia, the Quartet aids them by giving Sailor Moon the Golden Crystal. Chibi Moon invokes the Crystal's power, overwhelming Nehellenia and destroying the circus tent.

Nehellenia grabs Chibi Moon and runs away, Sailor Moon in quick pursuit. Nehellenia throws Chibi Moon off the edge, and Sailor Moon follows. Nehellenia is sealed within the Mirror and disappears. Mid-air, Sailor Moon is able to awaken Chibi-usa, who calls to Pegasus to save them. After a tearful goodbye with Chibi-usa, Helios returns to Elysion.
