The Dead Moon Circus headed by Zirconia and consisting of Hawk's Eye, Tiger's Eye, Fish's Eye, CereCere, PallaPalla, JunJun, VesVes and Nephrenia, is searching for Helios, the guardian of the Golden Crystal which, if in the hands of the New Moon, will turn his land, Erusion, into a land of darkness. However, the bad guys managed to lock Helios away, forcing him to take on the equinine form of Pegasus, who now lives in Chiba-Usa's dreams. To find Helios, the New Moon must attack the owner of the dream mirror Helios is hiding in, and it's up to the Sailor Senshi to stop them, in the beginning of the story. Written by

Sailor Moon SuperS has got to be one of worst seasons I have ever seen of an anime. After Super, Naoko must have been fresh out of ideas as must have the animators. Super was never topped in the anime (though Stars managed to eek out just ahead of SuperS), though the finish in the manga (comic)was excellently done albeit for some continuity flaws that have always existed in Naoko's work.
SuperS sees the return of Chibiusa ("Rini" EGAD...) who is the daughter of Neo-Queen Serenity (Serena, ick) and King Endymion (Darien, gross)from the future. And so marks the apperance of a new enemy, the Dead Moon Circus whose leader, Queen Nehelania of the dark side of the Moon, seeks the mystical dream guardian Pegasus so she may obtain the infinite power of the Golden Crystal.
her second in command is the old hermit woman Zirconia (made into a man int he American version) and the three transvestite warriors Tiger-Eye, Hawk-Eye, and Fish-Eye who has a crush on Mamoru (Darien). They are later replaced by CereCere, PallaPalla, VesVes, and JunJun, the acrobatic Amazon Quartet.
Humans are attacked and their dream mirrors are revealed. The person who has the most beautiful dream is the one with whose dream Pagasus dwells. Those dream mirrors that do not have Pagasus must be destroyed, killing the dreamer.
It seems that Chbiusa is in contact with Pegasus, who gives her a crystal ball that she can communicate with him through. Indeed, with a new enemy, a new power-up is in order and who better to supply that power than Pegasus, who appears in the midst of battle?
This has got to be one of the sappiest sides of Sailor Moon I have ever seen. Not only is the entire plot see through, but so are the twists. It will leave you mesmerized with the stupidity of the enemies and their minions (Lemures "Nightmares") which is covered up by their 'nonchalant attitude'. Most of the episodes are sappy filler, moving no plot along typically consisting of an enemy only to give the Sailor Senshi a chance to transform and use their flashy attacks (One enemy just got around to attacking and was destroyed immediately).
The ending has an arc to the next season Stars, but alone is unsatisfying and rediculously sappy as well.
PS, for any of you who thought that Chibimoon would get any more useful, you were wrong. All she does is summon Pegasus rendering her basically incapable and a nuisance who dodges attacks.
Don't be fooled, the manga isn't any better. In fact, you may want to watch the first three episodes of Sailor Moon SuperS, and then go to the last 4 episodes. Read the manga anyway if you want to be a Sailor Moon afficionado, it's just three volumes and the last one ties up well (in sharp contrast to the anime).
