From 1985 to 1986 Television Saitama re-broadcasted the Iron King series. However, broadcasting of this series was aborted after this episode. As a result, there was a speculation that this was the end of the series. The episode ended with a scene in which Iron King destroys a town being possessed by Cricketton, leading to a number of protests to Saitama TV station about the morbid "final episode" of series.
