** SyFy's airing of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' had its endings cut due to music licensing, which would be annoying enough if not for the second season having a minute-long {{Stinger}} after each episode, which were hit with CreditsPushback. Often these scenes were plot-critical, such as the penultimate episode showing how [[spoiler:Seravee Gundam]] was destroyed; without the scene, American fans were left wondering why it wasn't there in the big final battle.

** Seasons generally run 24-26 episodes, and Funimation didn't take into account what the Japanese used, even though they do [[OnePiece for other long-running shows]].

* When the ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' anime was first brought to French TV, the executives thought it was just another shonen, and had no idea about the series' famous LudicrousGibs and YourHeadAsplode moments. What's more, the dubbers hated the themes ([[GodwinsLaw comparisons to Nazis were involved]]) to the point of making a completely nonsensical GagDub filled with snark and puns, something like an AbridgedSeries before its time.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': A ''very'' minor case. It has nothing to do with the localization, but rather the Region 1 DVD release by Funimation. The company's "Season 2" releases contains episodes 27-51, which are actually part of the original Japanese "first season". The actual "Second Season" began with episode 52 in Japan (as read on the covers for the Region 2 [=DVD's=]). It's unknown why Funimation decided to do this.
** Seasons generally run 24-26 episodes, and Funimation didn't take into account what the Japanese used, even though they do [[OnePiece for other long-running shows]].
** Also, Funimation has mentioned a few times that they only licensed those first 51 episodes (despite implying earlier that they had acquired up to around episode 102). Since everyone already knew that this is a show lasting multiple seasons, Funimation may have decided to just split the difference and call it two seasons to be done with it.
*** But now Funimation has decided to release the next 26 episodes (eps.52-77), and are calling it "Season 3", which has managed to reopen this argument over semantics.

* The now OOP US release of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]] had great Audio quality, but bad picture quality. Manga Entertainment decided to turn the Gamma/Brightness UpToEleven on their print, possibly as a form of censorship. As a result, the print looks extremely washed out and certain scenes (the infamous [[ADateWithRosiePalms Mastur]][[DudeShesLikeInAComa bation]] scene) look like they were shot on the surface of the sun. The Japanese Renewal release doesn't have this problem, but it lacks English Subtitles.

The Japanese Renewal release doesn't have this problem, but it lacks English Subtitles. It's also non-anamorphic, meaning it looks tiny if you watch it on a modern widescreen TV.
** It's also worth pointing out that the DVD hasn't been in print since 2002.

* The US Blu-Ray of ''Manga/{{Kurokami}}'' [[http://www.mania.com/kurokami-bluray-explained_article_118809.html lacks a Japanese track.]] The Japanese licensor seems to be doing this to prevent reverse importation; Japan and the US have the same Blu-Ray region code.

* The [[Creator/{{Toho}} Toho International]] export dubbed version of ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Do You Remember Love]]'' was apparently rumoured to be used as an educational tool to teach English. It featured an [[WhatTheHellCastingAgency ''eclectic'']] bunch of Hong Kong voice actors who hammed it up despite the serious tone. It was released on VHS with 30 minutes hacked off in the UK and US as ''Macross: Clash of the Bionoids''. Due the problems associated with the Macross brand, it may be the only adaptation of this film to come to the west.

* On the subject of ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''- the ADV dub of the original TV series (already delayed because of the infamous legal snarl) never made it to a UK R2 release, though whether that has to do with ADV going bust before they could manage it is uncertain. But, of course, we still have the arguably-inferior version that is ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''. Same goes for the corresponding dubs of ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'' and ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada'', still available in their Robotech incarnations but not the originals.

* The 2015 DVD release of the 2012 ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' anime has also fallen victim to this trope. Aside from not having a Blu-ray version (though dubbed episodes are available in HD on Amazon Video), this DVD features menus barely better than what WB did for movies in '''1997''' (see the header for Main/VanillaEdition for an example), and while it also has Japanese audio, the subtitles used are dubtitled, despite the fact that both the Crunchyroll stream and Japanese Blu-rays of season one (both offered by WB) have proper subtitles.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with OnePiece, Season Four was released on DVD in Japan (and several other places) in PanAndScan, but the eventual English Creator/{{FUNimation}} release was in un-cropped widescreen.

** So they punish legitimate importers who (probably) can't override DVD PGC codes, but not pirates. Good job!
