Sailor Moon Super S is the fourth season of the original Sailor Moon anime, which aired from March 1995 through March 1996.

Yoji Enokido (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Bungo Stray Dogs) was in charge of series composition for the project.
Pioneer Entertainment (later Geneon) released Sailor Moon Super S in uncut format in North America. Viz Media acquired the license to both the original Sailor Moon franchise and Sailor Moon Crystal in 2014.

On the digital front, Hulu currently streams all 200 episodes of the original Sailor Moon on their digital platform.
Viz describes the series as:
A majestic pegasus with a golden horn has appeared in Chibi-Usa’s dreams with a request—to help him and keep his presence a secret. This plea turns out to be more than a childish dream, for the fearsome Dead Moon Circus led by the villainous Zirconia arrive in town to draw out Pegasus by targeting people with beautiful dreams! Sailor Moon and the Guardians must unite to fight a new enemy and her deadly henchmen, the Amazon Trio. But without the power to transform into Super Sailor Moon, the Guardians find themselves seriously outmatched! Will Sailor Chibi Moon’s strong desire to protect everyone’s be the key to accessing Pegasus’s power?
