Viz Media is set to finally import the final season of ‘Sailor Moon’, subtitled ‘Sailor Stars’ to the US for the first time. This season introduced the gender-bending Sailor Stars, characters that were probably a bit too… complicated for the kid audience of the 1990s, when ‘Sailor Moon’ was first introduced to Western audiences. Also introduced that season was the supremely powerful Sailor Galaxia, whose mission it was to secure the Senshi Crystal.
“Watch out Sailor Guardians!” reads the caption on the Twitter post from Viz, “We’ve got a first look at the English voice of the wicked Sailor Galaxia.”

“Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians are about to face their greatest challenge yet — high school! But as the girls take their next big step in life and Chibi-Usa prepares to return to the future, a mysterious force frees the evil Queen Nehalennia!
“While the struggle to contain her old enemy will be difficult, it may be Mamoru’s year of studying abroad that hurts Usagi the most. But there’s even more to take Usagi’s mind off of long-distance love with the arrival of the villainous Sailor Anima Mates and the heroic Sailor Star Lights! Who could be behind this new wave of evil? And why are the Star Lights resistant to working with Sailor Moon? Usagi has her hands full, but she’ll always make time to write a love letter to her beloved Mamo.”
‘Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars’ Volume 1 will be released on June 18. It contains episodes 167 to 183, dubbed into English for the first time.
