* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In ADV's dub, Jean's French accent is noticeably shaky in at least the first couple of episodes (although keep in mind that his actor was only 12 at the time). That said, he gradually improves with it over the course of the show (the actor admits it took him several episodes to really get the hang of it).
** Critics have often (and unfairly) attacked the ADV dub, declaring it "unlistenable" on account of the accents alone, never mind that this is a show where the characters are ''supposed'' to be European. To the average listener, however, the accents work in favor of the story, and, as mentioned, they become less shaky with each subsequent episode.

*** It should also be noted that some of the characters Nadia, Marie, Hanson, and the Sonar Officer speak with neutral accents in the ADV dub. (The dub directors said that this was to work in favor of Nadia being all over the world and not having had time to adopt an accent.)
