List of Sailor Moon episodes

The fourth season of the Sailor Moon anime series, titled Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon SuperS [1] [2] (美少女戦士セーラームーン SuperS(スーパーズ), Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Sūpāzu) was produced by Toei Animation and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara. It adapts the "Dream" arc of the Sailor Moon manga series by Naoko Takeuchi and follows the adventures of Usagi Tsukino and her fellow Super Sailor Guardians. The series is divided into two story arcs: the first arc for 22 episodes depicts a mighty deity known as Pegasus, entering Chibiusa's dreams to flee from the Amazon Trio, minions of the Dead Moon Circus, who are trying to steal the legendary Golden Crystal from him. The second arc for 17 episodes depicts the arrival of the Amazoness Quartet, a group of enemies who dream of remaining young forever, as well as Queen Nehelenia, the depraved ruler of the Dead Moon Circus.

Nehelenia explains that she was once queen of an asteroid and she was worshiped for her beauty by her people until she asked her dream mirror if she would stay beautiful forever. But upon seeing the ugly, old woman she would become, Nehelenia consumed her servants' Dream Mirrors, turning them into Lemures while retaining her youth and beauty, and was consequently sealed away by Queen Serenity. With Sailor Moon pities her, an infuriated Nehelenia throws Chibiusa over the edge of the platform. Sailor Moon dives after her and transforms into Princess Serenity; she catches up to Chibiusa, awakens her, and together they use the Golden Crystal to land safely on Earth. At that time, Nehelenia reseals herself back into the mirror to regain her beauty as it flies off. Chibiusa says goodbye to Helios, who returns to his homeworld of Elysion, and says that she will see him in her dreams.
