** The two first movies were dubbed in Mexico, and while [[SuperlativeDubbing the acting itself was pretty good]], on the other hand the translation was awful, since not only suffered of the TooLongDidntDub trope (something that ''rarely happens'' in a Mexican Spanish dub), it was later found out the Mexican dub [[WhatAnIdiot illegally]] used a plagiarism script from a fansub for the translation, causing a quite embarrasing incident with both the fans and the Japanese licensors, and losing the right for dubbing any related material regarding the series for good.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': The series had just aired its 10th episode when the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. Most shows held back a week out of courtesy, but while most shows were returned the following week, ''Madoka Magica'' wasn't. Despite using the time to polish up the final two episodes, the channel that had first air rights to the series refused to air it for nearly two months before relenting and airing the last two back to back.
** In certain locations the 10th episode was ''also'' delayed (though there was an internet livestream on NicoNicoDouga) and was aired with the other two episodes. Note that none of this seemed to hurt the ratings (there was even a ''newspaper advertisement'' for the last two episodes) and the episodes even managed to have a MeaningfulReleaseDate.
** And before all that, the voice actors [[EnforcedMethodActing weren't told beforehand]] that this was ''not'' a lighthearted MagicalGirl show ([[spoiler:really more of a CosmicHorrorStory]]), and were rather traumatized as a result ([[spoiler:[[EmiriKatou Emiri]] "Kyubey" [[EmiriKatou Katou]]]] [[HeroicBSOD broke down crying]] when she found out her character's true nature). [[MemeticMutation Goddammit]] [[GenUrobuchi Urobuchi]].
** Urobuchi originally wanted things just to end with ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion The Rebellion Story]]''. This was denied, and while it helps that he gladly embraced the alternate ending suggested to him for that installment, he ''has'' considered just leaving, claiming to lose control over the franchise.

** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', which suffered fewer financial hardships than the original, but both the TV series and its {{Compilation Movie}}s rather infamously suffered complications as a result of the romantic blunders of various men involved in production with at least three voice actresses.[[note]](This had HUGE consequences for Four Murasame's new seiyuu, Creator/{{Yukana}}, who was accused of [[CastingCouch sleeping with the recently divorced director]] to get the role; this caused her to be subjected [[YokoOhNo to massive bullying from the Gundam fandom]] and [[StarDerailingRole serious career damage]], [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap until she reclaimed her popularity]] by playing C.C from ''Anime/CodeGeass'')[[/note]] Most infamous of which was the legendary feud between the PrimaDonnaDirector and scriptwriter Creator/YoshiyukiTomino and equally self-important mecha designer Mamoru Nagano. It became doubly notorious because not only both men were feuding over the Beltorchika Irma's voice actress Creator/MariaKawamura[[note]]Nagano won and they still seem to be HappilyMarried.[[/note]], but over CreativeDifferences as well.[[note]]Nagano routinely hated Tomino's style and the direction where he was taking the show, up to the point that TheFiveStarStories basically started as his StartMyOwn towards their other collaboration, ''Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim''.[[/note]]

* ''Anime/LostUniverse'' is a notorious case. The show's budget was already low, but a studio fire resulted in lots of work from the first few episodes destroyed. They had to be reanimated on an even lower budget by a South Korean studio while the rest of the show resumed production. This all occurring during a recession. One episode looked so bad on TV, that it had to be almost entirely re-animated for home video and re-runs.

A second season was also canceled so the studio could make way for more ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' movies.

* American fans were thrilled when Creator/{{FUNimation}} got a hold of the 3rd ''TenchiMuyo'' OVA series. However, Funimation screwed up the contract and only got the rights for the ''first three episodes''. It took a year to renegotiate for the other four episodes and get them out, barely averting a case of TheOtherDarrin when voice actor Creator/BobPapenbrook [[AuthorExistenceFailure passed away]] soon after the release of the series.
** This trope already occured when they got back the entire voice cast... except Ryoko, arguably the most popular character in the show. While the details of what happened are kept private, her original voice actress, Petrea Burchard, simply said "we just couldn't work it out." This change remains one of the more controversial aspects of the OVA.

** According to the people who worked in the first dubbed version (from the first to the fifth season), which was dubbed in a Spanish-speaking studio in Los Angeles, California, the entire dub was a complete mess from the start, since many episodes were dubbed in the same day and sometimes by ''different'' voice directors, who normally [[TheyJustDidntCare ignored what the other director did in the previous episodes they dubbed before]] causing regular characters, like Sonoko Suzuki for a better example, to get [[DubNameChange her name changed]] in almost every episode she appeared. This reason and the fact the series suffered of low ratings were the reasons why the series was canceled in Latin America, despite its CultClassic following.

*** The English dub for ''Evangelion 3.33'' has suffered its own share of problems. Creator/{{Funimation}} had originally announced that that the dub would be released on DVD in February 2014, but Anno's apparent dissatisfaction with the job they did led the company to re-record the entire thing and pushing back the release date to February 2, 2016.
