** The Japanese version for the original series in general is very difficult to find due to there being no official home video release for it[[note]]It is available on Creator/{{Hulu}} and Amazon Prime in Japan, but RegionCoding is in effect for the rest of the world.[[/note]], and no complete fansub. Though it's not impossible to track down recent episodes, only the hardest of hardcore fans have seen much of the first several seasons in Japanese. The only exceptions are the banned episodes.

** Episode 67 was near-impossible to find in the US for many, many years since it was mysteriously absent from ADV's ''Sailor Moon R'' subtitled boxset, contributing to its reputation as being a very bad filler episode, especially after it was rumored that NaokoTakeuchi herself wouldn't allow the episode to be released because of how much she hated it. It turns out however that it was skipped because ADV didn't receive the materials for it from [=DiC=], who had skipped the episode in their dub, and didn't have any copy of it.

* Any LightNovel series licensed by {{Tokyopop}} are now forced into circulation because the company went under very recently. This would've been difficult to begin with anyway because of how unpopular light novels are in the states. Case in point, most of the licensed series only had between one and five volumes translated, and most of them went out of print due to low sales long before Tokyopop closed its doors. The ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' light novels are a good example; six of its fifteen volumes were released before its halt due to poor sales. Tokyopop decided to [[ThrowTheDogABone give the fans a break after some demand]] and translated novels 7 and 8 (completing the first arc) on a print-by-demand basis.

Added DiffLines:

* An English dub of the ''VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' anime exists, but only the first 26 episodes were dubbed, and it [[NoExportForYou only aired in Australia]] on the channel GO!. Worse yet, the dub got [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwed over by GO!]] in 2014, to make way for reruns of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', so the English dub of ''Tamagotchi'' is no longer rerun there. Thankfully, most, if not all of the English episodes can be found on Website/YouTube.

It was finally released in English in 2015, 12 years after the film's debut.

** All the original DVD releases from ADV and Pioneer with the original DiC/Cloverway dub are getting very expensive, with some 7-episode single [=DVD=]s going for as much as ''$90''!!!

** The series remains unlicensed in the UK. MVM used to have the UK license to the DiC dub of the first two seasons, but it was an infamously poor seller (almost leading the company into bankruptcy), and there's a rumor that licensors there are scared to touch it. Jerome Mazandarari, the one formerly in charge of Manga UK, once said he would rather slam his testicles in the Manga office door than license ''Sailor Moon''.
** And the original English dub by DiC/Cloverway is gone forever outside of illegal viewing and buying the tapes second-hand due to Viz claiming that the original cinetape materials for them no longer exist or are in very poor shape (there's also possibly music issues that would need to be cleared for DiC's episodes), which fans of the 90s dub are understandably outraged about.

* ''Anime/RobotCarnival''. This old classic that was among the first exposures of anime to the West has only received a Region 2 DVD released a ''looooooong'' time ago. It was rights issues, as original US licensee Streamline Pictures went under. Fortunetly, DiscotekMedia has licensed it and will be released in DVD in Region 1.

* ''Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie'' is out-of-print and near-impossible to find in stores and even on Amazon for decent prices, but it is very easy to watch on Website/YouTube.

Sadly, it's apparently impossible to find the original unedited version in decent quality. The versions currently available [[{{Macekre}} are missing the first episode's credits sequence, and have some really tacked on edits in parts that showed Japanese text in the original.]]
