** Creator/ChristinaHernandez played both Limes in Mexico.



** Also the ''J'' series ended up being dubbed by Ocean in Vancouver instead of Animaze in LA, so the entire cast was changed. Notably, Otaru went from being voiced by a female (Creator/MonaMarshall) to a male (Creator/BradSwaile). Then ''J to X'' went to Blue Water in Calgary, presumably due to union issues, and the entire cast was changed once again.

** The rest of the dubs were more consistent, with two major exections in ''J Again''. In Japan, Creator/KikukoInoue was on maternity leave during production, and thus was replaced by Creator/EmiShinohara. In Mexico, Isabel Martinon was replaced by Creator/ElsaCovian, who ironically played ''R'''s version of Cherry. In both cases the original actress came back for ''J to X''
