Trivia: Excel Saga

  • ADV Films dubbed and initially had the license for the series back in 2002. FUNimation rescued it and re-released it in 2011. Strangely, they did not rescue Puni Puni Poemi, even though there are a lot of extras involving it in the DVD release that Funimation kept.
  • This is one of the earliest anime shows to utilize digital coloring over hand-painted cels. This is noted on in Episode 17 ("Animation USA"), in which one of the secondary characters is tasked with a job of hand-painting animation cels to be sold on the black market.
