* During the '90s, a lot of popular anime releases such as ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Dragon Ball'' were only available in most of Europe through the French AB Groupe's distribution, both for regular television and home video. The problem was that they only distributed their pre-dubbed, pre-edited versions, not the original series. The shows were subjected to major editing to make them more kid-friendly, which included horrible censoring, nonsensical name changes, mistranslations, bad voice acting, plus bizarre, lazy theme-songs and the deletion of the original soundtrack in certain scenes. They also came in bad-quality, grainy and at times jumpy video masters that cut off bits from all four sides of the screen. Further, these series were sold as strictly children's material, which has lead to some controversy in a handful of countries that picked them up.

Yes, this is where the infamous "Big Green Dub" of ''Dragon Ball Z'' (named after AB Groupe's rather on-the-nose name-change for Piccolo) comes from. They also came in bad-quality, grainy and at times jumpy video masters that cut off bits from all four sides of the screen.

* 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. 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.

* Unlike most TV Tokyo shojou anime, ''Anime/{{Tamagotchi}}'' did get an English dub...but it only aired in Australia on GO! despite the franchise being more popular in America, and only the first 26 episodes were dubbed, stopping at the episode where we meet Terulin to air re-runs of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', [[AdoredByTheNetwork which then preceded to take over three other slots on the channel to become the most-aired show on the channel]]. The show later came to American shores and was taken UpToEleven-not only did the show only get aired on a website, but the episodes were '''shortened to three minutes long'''. That's right! Bandai didn't realize that they could have dubbed whole episodes and aired them on the internet, in a similar manner to Nickelodeon shows like ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''.

** Their ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'' [[https://www.amazon.com/Yu-Gi-Oh-DARK-SIDE-DIMENSIONS-DVD/product-reviews/B06XYH34V4/ release]] was just as bad, having no scene selections, dubtitles, replacing a credits song from the Japanese version with the English-version instrumental theme, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking an ugly menu screen]].

* Anchor Bay's [[https://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Shell-Complex-Season-Blu-ray/dp/B01NBHMO5B Blu-ray release]] of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' is so bare-bones it doesn't even have a scene selection, has audio glitches, and uses 'dubtitles' and closed-captions for the hearing-impaired instead of proper Japanese subtitles that the DVD versions, released by another company, did have.

* When S'more Entertainment announced an uncut, dual-audio release of the ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' anime in North America, fans of the series were quite pleased. However, upon receiving the DVD sets, there was a major error...there were no English subtitles, despite them being listed on the DVD packaging. The company got so much backlash for their sloppy releases of both ''Bobobo'' and ''Manga/GalaxyExpress999'' they left anime licensing for good.

** On top of that, Neil Nadelman, the translator of the series, said on AnimeNewsNetwork that he didn't paid the full price of the license. Therefore, the anime is now on a licensing limbo. Also, the DVD release is no longer listed on Amazon and [[Creator/NozomiEntertainment RightStuf.]]
