Sailor Moon R refers to the second season of the Sailor Moon anime.
Two space aliens named Ail and An are targeting humans with their Cardians to collect energy for the Makaiju which is the source of their life energy. This invasion prompts Luna to restore the memories of Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Senshi so that they can defend the Earth. Sailor Moon's powers begin to fail but she gets a new power-up from the Silver Crystal and a new weapon called the Cutie Moon Rod. The Sailor Senshi are aided against the Cardians by the mysterious Moonlight Knight who is later revealed to be a manifestation of Mamoru Chiba's subconscious desire to protect Sailor Moon. It's eventually revealed that the Makaiju wants love, not raw energy, and that hatred and ambition destroyed most of Ail and An's race. with a newfound understanding of love, Ail and An leave the Earth in peace.
Later, a mysterious girl appears who identifies herself as "Usagi Tsukino." To prevent confusion, the Sailor Senshi and Mamoru call her Chibiusa. Chibiusa is being targeted by the Black Moon Clan, a collection of villains from the future led by Prince Demande who are attempting to alter the past to conquer Crystal Tokyo in the future. Chibiusa is later revealed that Chibiusa is Usagi and Mamoru's future daughter and that their future counterparts are Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion. After a visit to the future where the Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask learn about Chibiusa and the Black Moon Clan, Chibiusa is captured by Wiseman and transformed into an adult form called Black Lady. The final battle takes place in the present where Sailor Moon struggles to undo Wiseman's brainwashing of Black Lady to turn her back into Chibiusa. Once Chibiusa was restored, Sailor Moon and Chibiusa combine the powers of their Silver Crystals to defeat Wiseman.
The Makaiju arc contained a storyline and a villain group unique to the anime. In this arc, the aliens Ail and An came to Earth and began stealing energy using Cardians to sustain their "mother," the Makaiju. In their human disguises, Ail and An also pursued Usagi and Mamoru, respectively.
This arc was created by Toei to allow the manga time to catch up with the anime. It had no correlation with any storyline from the manga, although it did introduce Sailor Moon's new transformation Moon Crystal Power, Make Up and attack Moon Princess Halation. Events in this arc were rarely referenced in later anime episodes, although some fans have suggested that Ail and An might be connected to the character of Fiore in the Sailor Moon R movie.
