Sailor Stars was the 1996 Summer Special Musical. Sailor Stars was loosely based on the eponymously named anime and manga versions. Since this musical ran concurrently with the airing and publication of the anime and manga, the ending of the musical has very little resolution. Sailor Stars Kaiteiban, however, has a definitive conclusion. This was the first adaptation of the Sailor Stars story into musical format, and there were several liberties taken with plot, and new musical exclusive characters appear as well.
Sailor Stars ran from 08/05/1996 through 08/30/1996. Since it was a Summer musical it was a touring production, and was performed in five different theatres during its run: Sunshine Theatre in Tokyo, Aichi Kouseinenkin Kaikan in Nagoya, Yokkaichi Shibunka Kaikan in Mie, Hamamatsu Act City in Shizuoka, and Kouseinenkin Kaikanchuu Hall in Osaka.
