Banned Episode: "Hot Springs Planet Tenrei" never saw the light of day on America's Toonami block due to excessive nudity and sexually suggestive content. Not even [adult swim] aired it during the show's short run on that block. Over in the UK, the cartoon channel, CNX, did air the episode, but a lot of cuts had to be made to make it suitable for kids. This edit was too short and too messy to watch, so it was shelved. The good news in all of this is that the English DVD version has this episode (and the entire series) uncut and uncensored.
