* Ichiei Ishibumi, the writer of the ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' light novels, said that the anime adaptation's third season, ''[=BorN=]'', was the season he was hoping it would be due to his involvement in shifting around the volumes adapted for the season, in this case the fifth through seventh, so that he could write the ''EX'' spin-off. Tetsuya Yanagisawa, the anime's first director, also expressed regret on this season.

* Creator/SteveBlum absolutely refuses to work on anything hentai [[note]] he no longer can do any of these titles anyway since hentai titles are non-union[[/note]], as he came across a scene that was so offensive that he left the studio immediately (link to the video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j73B-iDaNog&t=0m37s here]]).

** Creator/FourKidsEntertainment in general wasn't happy with what they did to the series, since they didn't want anything to do with the show in the first place.

** [[invoked]] The original Canadian dub from the 90's is this to pretty much everyone except a few of the voice actors. For [=DiC=], the dub's poor reception stings; to Western fans of the original Japanese, the {{dub name change}}s stoked ire for years (even though many of the name changes actually made sense… and [[DoubleStandard no one complained about European dubs changing the characters' names]]); to the Japanese – especially Takeuchi – its biggest sin was the fact that it was severely {{Bowdlerize}}d and edited. That last reason is why it will never see the light of day again. Fortunately, Viz was given the go-ahead to redub the entire thing from scratch.

** Creator/EricStuart frequently admits how terrible what [=4Kids=] did, given how he felt that it would never work as a Saturday morning show. He still has fond memories of working on that show despite their production issues.

** Blum was one of the first voice actors to portray Goku, the famous protagonist of ''Manga/DragonBall''. Unfortunately, the one time he did the voice of Goku was in ''Anime/DragonBallGT: Final Bout'', a lackluster PSX fighting game with hilariously awful voice acting.

** ''Anime/KidouShinsengumiMoeyoKen'', a.k.a. "the series that goes on sale for $5 every year at Right Stuf's holiday sale", is another. Right Stuf still has a high stock of singles of the series released almost a decade ago. Funimation lowered the MSRP on the box set by $10 and still no one bit. They gave up and took down their website for it yet kept up their Youtube uploads of the first two episodes.

* Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard voiced a role in ''Manga/StrikeWitches'', but you wouldn't know it from the credits because she was so ashamed of the show that she insisted on using an alias. Apparently she wasn't the only one.



** The late Susan Aceron, the original dub's second voice for Trista/Sailor Pluto, agreed with fans who disliked her performance, saying "I have no idea what they were thinking when they cast me," finding the voice director difficult, and admitting that the entire production was under heavy pressure. Nonetheless, she appreciated the opportunity, and the minor attention the role gave her. She also appeared at one anime convention, in 2005.

* Creator/ChristopherSabat and several other actors in the cast consider the original dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' an old shame as it was their first job in the anime industry meaning that neither their acting or the scripts were up to snuff. (That said, the cast are all generally fond of the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' franchise and were pleased to be able to improve upon their original work with ''Anime/DragonBallKai''.)

** Transformers Wiki itself treats ''Transformers Energon'' like this. They haze the original ''Superlink'' for dropping interesting character arcs (Demolishor is conflicted about being a Decepticon -> turned into a gibbering idiot, Starscream is revived after spending his past appearances questioning who he was and actually defecting from the Decepticons -> memory is wiped and he becomes a bland, one-dimensional character all the way to the end of the series, etc.) and the weak usage of CGI versus the original cel-shaded ''Anime/TransformersArmada'', due to extreme amounts of DullSurprise. But the brunt of the complaints on the Wiki are directed at the English dub, a.k.a ''Energon''. They see it like bad comedy for shredding the original Japanese dialogue into incomprehensible mistranslations, excessive LullDestruction, getting character names swapped, airing episodes so early they contained incomplete footage from overseas, and worst of all, the unexplained omission of ''an entire episode critical to the plot''.
