Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi was not pleased that Toei Animation took the liberties of making the Starlights males in their civilian forms. In the original manga (Japanese comics), the Starlights are females regardless of whether they become Sailor Soldiers or appear in the civilian forms. See more »

This season is hands down my favourite of all the Sailor Moon seasons. It had so much working for it. The return of the Outer Senshi, the return to Naoko's manga stories, the character development, and the exploration of Senshi mythology, even the reduced episode count.
You'll find alot complain about the absense of Mamoru in this season, but IMO it worked out really well. Mamoru IMO hasn't contributed to the storyline of Sailor Moon since the R season, reduced to just showing up for a couple minutes to save the day in S and SS. Now, he's off studying in America, and Usagi's left lonely in Tokyo and finds a possible new love interest Seiya(who's really a woman). It was probably my favourite aspect of this season, the sexual tension between Usagi and Seiya: is she attracted to him/her, what does that mean about herself, what about her love for Mamoru, what about their future as king and queen of Neo Tokyo. Great stuff.
The villain, ahhh the villain. Not since Queen Beryl has there realy been a villain as menacing and as fleshed out as Sailor Galaxia. Not that Mistress9 was bland or anything, but she doesn't have a season long presence like those two villains did. It's too bad the producers didn't explore their villains to the extent Galaxia was explored. They gave us a very 3 dimensional villain here, which is something they never did with Beryl, Death Phantom, Tomoe or Zirconia. They also gave Nehelenia more layers and depth here in those first 6 episodes of Stars than they ever did in SuperS.
This whole season just stands out from all previous Sailor Moon incarnations. Why? They writers really got their acts together and gave us a strongly rooted storyline. In the previous 3 seasons we got storylines with alot of filler episodes (SuperS was almost entierly filler!). But not here, and even when we did have a filler episode, they explored the characters and relationships in a way that it almost wasn't a filler episode. The smaller episode count also helped keep this series focused. When you think about it - this season explored the whole Sailor Wars, Starlights and Galaxia story in only 28 episodes (the first 6 episodes revisited the SS villain Nehelenia after she's released by Galaxia and those episodes were some of the best of SM ever). And really, when you think about how past seasons took from 38-46 episodes to tell their stories, Stars getting it done in 28 forced writers to stay focused on the story to get everything they wanted to tell told.
And the final battle - WOW!
Go hunt this season down. Download it, get VHS fansubs, or beg Pioneer or ADV to release it subbed on DVD.
