** And just like what happened with ''Dragon Ball Z'', fans of the Japanese version are still circulating copies on the internet with the original audio for certain previews ripped from the initial broadcasts. A quick search for "sailor moon original broadcast audio" online will bring up several clips featuring this lost high-quality audio, though full episodes take some extra effort to find. However, Toei did keep the original audio masters for the episodes themselves.

* The hit-and-miss, yet undeniably familiar English dub of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (including Directors' Cuts) and its two films ''Evangelion: Death and Rebirth'' and ''The End of Evangelion'' are for all intents and purposes abandoned by Manga Entertainment - which [[ScrewedByTheLawyers lost the license rights to the original series]] and today is standing on its last legs. The dub tracks, however, have already been transcoded onto recent 1080p Blu Ray releases by fansubbers, for [[NarmCharm nostalgia's sake]].

Creator/StudioKhara is reportedly waiting until they have finished the ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' films to begin re-licensing the original series in the English-language marketplace.

* An English dub of the ''VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' anime exists, but only the first 26 episodes were dubbed, and it [[NoExportForYou only aired in Australia]] on the channel GO!. Worse yet, the dub got [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwed over by GO!]] in 2014, to make way for reruns of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', so the English dub of ''Tamagotchi'' is no longer rerun there. Thankfully, most, if not all of the English episodes can be found on Website/YouTube.

** Do you remember ''Tama and Friends'' on syndicated television in 2001? Then the home video was never announced and released during the 2001-2002 syndication. The TV-rip of all 13 dubbed episodes can be easily found.

* You remember ''Anime/SpeedRacer'', right? Of course you do. Now how about ''Anime/SpeedRacerX''? Even if you do, you won't be able to find it very easily. Legal issues kept the show from airing past 13 episodes in the US and none of those had an official release stateside. The only way to view the series now is through incredibly rare recordings people have done. A few episodes are on Website/YouTube, but they're incredibly poor quality. Funimation released the original Japanese version in 2017 as part of a LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition also including both versions of the original series, but hasn't given it a stand-alone release.

** That aforementioned release was actually the first time ''Mach Go Go Go'' had ever been officially released in North America in its unedited form. Funimation isn't currently streaming it either. The popularity of ''Speed Racer'' effectively got in the original version's way.

** The manga also went out-of-print from Tokyopop before Kodansha USA picked up the rights in 2011. This marked the first time the original unedited and un-flipeed manga was available in English. Tokyopop's old censored and flipped editions went for high prices for quite a while.

** In fact, ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' and the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' are the only two to have proper Western releases. ''SDF'' has been released in English a few times (notably in the form of ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', plus separate translations by Creator/AnimEigo and Creator/ADVFilms as well a 2014 Creator/LionsGate issue of the first 18 episodes subbed alongside their ''Robotech'' versions, followed up by the posting of the subtitled version on Amazon Video in 2016), and ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' was localized by Creator/MangaEntertainment. That's about it.

* Anime/HighSchoolOfTheDead is a rather odd case, as [=DVDs=] can be found if one knows where to look (like 3rd party sellers on Amazon, eBay, etc), it's just that few stores carry them because of its TooHotForTV nature.
