The first press item of each DVD was a puzzle of the front cover. The last volume came with two first press items: a puzzle and a box to hold all six volumes.
In the intro sequence, when Minako is pretending to be shot by the man on the television, it is actually Clint Eastwood's "Man With no Name" from the movie "Fist Full of Dollars"
Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi was not pleased that Toei Animation took the liberties of making the Starlights males in their civilian forms. In the original manga, the Starlights are females regardless of whether they become Sailor Soldiers or appear in the civilian forms.
Contrary to popular belief among Sailor Moon fans, the Starlights' surnames are not "Kou" (literally, "light"). Kou is the personal name they each share. Seiya, Yaten, and Taiki are their surnames. Because the Starlights share the same personal name, they are known by their surnames.
The success of this Sailor Moon series saved it from declining ratings and near cancellation during the Sailor Moon SuperS airings.
The Sailor Starlight's black costumes are very similar to the new black and white Wonder Woman comic book costume which was first shown in 1995, a year before the Sailor Stars series was released.
The original "Sailor Stars" comic book was so popular, the series began to be made before it was totally completed.
Online petitions requesting the dubbing of Sailor Stars have been held since 2000. It has been previously confirmed that Sailor Stars, the final season of the Sailor Moon anime, would not be dubbed, because Toei wasn't putting it up for license, and due to the sexual content of the season itself.
