Invisible Advertising: In America, the series just sort of showed up one Saturday (at 5 am!), and if you weren't following the schedule, you'd never have even have known it was on. After than and a couple false starts it finally aired completely and in a better timeslot, but still with zero advertising.
Screwed by the Network: The English dub was aired at 5:30 AM EST by [adult swim], dropped after 10 episodes, restarted in a better timeslot, and then dropped again due to the fallout of Geneon going bankrupt; the release of the DVD's got snagged up in red tape. [adult swim] was not permitted to continue showing Moribito until the licensing issues were resolved and DVD's 4-8 were allowed to be released. However, the problems were eventually solved, and [adult swim] re-aired and completed the series between June and December 2009.
