The most persistent rumors are that Toei wanted more money for licensing than anyone was willing to pay, and that Toei was afraid of hurting the show's "family friendly" image due to some content in Sailor Stars (such as the nudity in the last episode, [[Haruka Tenou (anime)|Haruka]] and [[Michiru Kaiou (anime)|Michiru's]] relationship, and the gender-transforming [[Sailor Starlights]]). Despite this, however, this season aired in other foreign countries with little or no controversy.
