Mamoru is about to leave to study in the United States but, as he is saying goodbye to Usagi, he is attacked and his body crumbles away, leaving only the Golden Crystal in its place, which is taken by Sailor Galaxia, the leader of a new group of villains known as Shadow Galactica. Usagi is shocked to see this and faints, but later blocks this memory and thinks Mamoru has arrived safely to the U.S. A new group of idols called the Three Lights comes to Tokyo and become students at Usagi's high school. Chibiusa returns to Crystal Tokyo, but days later, a little girl named ChibiChibi arrives to the Tsukino house and tricks Usagi's mother to believe she is Usagi's younger sister. Sailor Galaxia and her servants, the Sailor Animamates, destroy the eight Solar System Sailor Guardians as well as Phobos and Deimos, one by one, taking their Sailor Crystals. Two Animamates are killed by the Sailor Starlights, who are revealed to be the true identity of the Three Lights, while a third Animamate is defeated by Eternal Sailor Moon. Usagi remembers what happened to Mamoru with the help of the Starlights. In the future, Chibiusa overhears and conversation between Neo-Queen Serenity and Sailor Pluto about a disruptance in the past. A new student named Nyanko Suzu arrives to Usagi's high school and tries to befriend her, but Luna and Artemis sense in her a power similar to theirs. Princess Kakyuu, the leader of the Starlights, emerges from an incense burner that ChibiChibi has been taking care of.

As Kakyuu reunites with the Starlights, ChibiChibi is revealed to be a Sailor Guardian too. Suzu reveals she is an Animamate from the same planet as Luna and Artemis, and attacks them as well Diana, who has just arrived from the future to help but fails to steal their Star Seeds and the Starlights force her to retreat. Galaxia eliminates her for her failure. Usagi meets Kakyuu, who explains that Galaxia has been destroying planets and stealing Sailor Crystals before reaching Earth and the Silver Crystal. Usagi, ChibiChibi, Kakyuu, and the Starlights travel to the Galaxy Cauldron, the birthplace of all life and stars in the Milky Way, located at the center of the galaxy, to get Mamoru and the Guardians' Sailor Crystals and revive them. Upon arriving, they meet Sailor Lethe, who brings Luna, Artemis, and Diana to kill them and to take their Star Seeds, which are as powerful as Sailor Crystals. Lethe attacks Usagi and the others but is stopped by her twin sister, Sailor Mnemosyne. Usagi realizes her Crystal is the source of all wars and asks Lethe and Mnemosyne to kill her, but the twins are moved by Usagi's sacrifice and let her go to Galaxia. However, Sailor Chi and Sailor Phi, Galaxia's closest servants and leaders of the Animamates, appear and kill Lethe and Mnemosyne with their powers, and take their Sailor Crystals. ChibiChibi shields herself, as well as Usagi and Kakyuu, but cannot protect the Starlights, who are still unconscious in the ground from Lethe's previous attack.

The Starlights die as a result of Sailor Phi and Sailor Chi's attack, and their Sailor Crystals are taken too. Chibiusa and the Sailor Quartet arrive from the future to help. As they make their way to Galactica Palace, Usagi and the others destroy one last Animamate, as well as Phi, Chi, and the eight Solar System Guardians, who are under Galaxia's control; however, Kakyuu is killed in action. Once inside the Palace, the battle between Usagi and Galaxia takes place. Usagi finally meets Chaos, the being who failed to become a star and who has sent incarnations in the forms of Metaria, Wiseman, Pharaoh 90, and Nehelenia to reach Usagi and her Silver Crystal. Galaxia intends Usagi and Chaos to destroy each other so that she alone remains as the most powerful being in the Milky Way, but she is killed by Chaos. ChibiChibi states that the only way to defeat Chaos is to destroy the Cauldron, but Usagi tells her that she will not end the cycle of life of the galaxy and encourages ChibiChibi to never give up. ChibiChibi reveals her true self: Sailor Cosmos, Sailor Moon's ultimate form from a distant future. Usagi uses all her power and throws herself into the Cauldron to seal Chaos. Usagi's courage reminds Cosmos of the strength she needs to keep fighting and Cosmos returns to her own future. Within the Cauldron, Usagi meets Mamoru and her friends, and asks Guardian Cosmos, the guardian of the Cauldron, to send them all back to Earth and their normal lives. The series concludes with Usagi and Mamoru's wedding, while the construction of Crystal Tokyo is taking place.

English publication[edit]

The North America distributing company Tokyopop initially released 18 volumes from the Japanese first edition, split into five arcs; Dark Kingdom with fourteen acts, Black Moon with twelve acts, Infinity with twelve acts, Dream with eleven acts, and Stars with eleven acts. Volume 1 was released on December 1, 1998,[6] and volume 18 was released on September 18, 2001.[40] The first 10 acts were also published in the American magazine MixxZine, while acts 39 through 60 were published in Smile. The series was also published in thirty-five issues in traditional American comic book format. This publication was not complete, only containing acts 11[43] through 38[44] and the extra "Lover of Princess Kaguya".[45] These were released starting in August 1998 at the San Diego ComicCon[46] through mid-2001.[45] The Mixx and Tokyopop editions of the manga went out of print in 2005.[47]

In 2011, Kodansha USA began re-printing the 14-volume restored Sailor Moon manga edition (including the two short story compilations) under the title Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, as well as the two-volume restored Codename: Sailor V manga editions in English beginning with Volume 1 of both titles on September 13, 2011, featuring a new translation. Subsequent volumes were published bimonthly.[48]

In 2017, Kodansha USA announced plans to re-release Sailor Moon in an "Eternal Edition", featuring a new English translation, new cover artwork by Takeuchi, and color pages from the manga's original run, printed on extra-large premium paper.[49][50] The first Eternal Edition volume was published on September 11, 2018;[51] the tenth and final volume was published on October 20, 2020.[52]

In 2020, Kodansha USA announced plans to re-release the Sailor Moon manga again as part of their "Naoko Takeuchi Collection".[53] The company described the new edition as a "more affordable, portable" version of the Eternal Edition. The first volume was published on April 5, 2022.[54]
