With Sailor Moon fans, everyone will have their own favorite arc. I didn't find this one terribly interesting. I bought this on LD. It's still sealed. And I kind of want to get rid of it.
The new Sailor Senshi are good of course. But Chibi-moon really bothers me, always has. I really wasn't interested in watching 40-so episodes on her or her ill friend.
I guess it's just all a matter of personal taste. It has the same quirks as the rest of the series, so if you were into that, you'll be into this. It's still an enemy-of-the-day and evil-being-of-the-arc type plot, but I guess fans will love this...probably more than they should.

Viewed by most to be the greatest of all the series of Sailormoon, S (for Super) indeed reflects a strangely dark and foreboding atmosphere around the usually bubbly Juuban district, Usagi's home. The mystic Shinto priestess Rei's initial vision after the defeat of the Black Moon alarms her initially, but with the strange appearance of the mysterious new senshi, her suspicions become confirmed.
For me, this quickly became one of my favorite series of all, both in manga and anime forms, a truly rare thing for me. The inclusion of new senshi revolutionized the tried concept of 'senshi fight villain, get in a pinch, Tuxedo Mask rescues, Sailormoon wins', etc., and added some unpredictable situations wherein the renegade Sailors Uranus and Neptune arrived at the last minute, and the inner senshi could not be sure of whether they would be saved...or doomed.
This was probably one of the better series of Sailormoon for characterization and lack of predictable storylines, but unfortunately I simply hated the conversion of Uranus and Neptune. They were hardly so villainous and downright rude in the manga, although they certainly were arrogant; in the anime, they were all but painted as 'bad guys', something that I disliked to the extreme.
However, I did enjoy Sailorpluto's inclusion, as my favorite senshi, and even when pulled along by Uranus's half-cocked ideas, she seemed the only one to even sympathize with Tuxedo Mask and the inner senshi, often breaking from the other two to help Chibi-Usa or Usagi's group.
Overall this is an excellent series of Sailormoon, although the manga version is superior to the anime, both in the final battle and in everything leading up to it. There are some majestic and spine-tingling scenes in the anime, though, and probably one of the most memorable is the return of Sailorpluto, when the mysterious Meiou Setsuna transforms for the first time, one of only two times in the entire series (including movies) where her full transformation is shown; the other must be the introduction proper of the terrifying a series of tenuous and unsure allies, it seems that the most terrible one of all is Saturn, and her arrival heralds the oncoming apocalyptic clash between the senshi and Pharoah-90. There are also many comical scenes, such as Usagi getting drunk and attempting to speak English, and even some amusing lines between the almost always stoic Haruka and Michiru.
Overall the manga was better on most counts, though, especially the role of Saturn and the rest of the senshi in Pharoah-90's defeat, and Sailormoon's role in the final battle as well. Sailorpluto's return was made more incredible in the manga due to the fact that in the previous story arc, she had given her life to save history, and that somewhat defused by the fact that in Sailormoon R as an anime, she did no such thing.
However, all things considered, this is an excellent series, and very absorbing. From the first episode to the final one, it draws you in and does not easily release you from its thrall. An incredible series. You should watch it again...and again...and again.
