Shouldn't Lyrical Nanoha and Higurashi: When They Cry be notable enough to get their own bullet points under the Geneon entry? They were license-rescued by FUNimation, but the licenses have since expired with the DV Ds now being freakishly expensive (thankfully, fansubs seem to be widely available, though I'm not sure how well the English dubs have been circulating). I recall Funi even stated outright that they wouldn't be getting Higurashi Kai, and for reasons unknown, any Nanoha media past A's has never been touched in North America. Interestingly enough, the Japanese home releases for the movies include an English subtitle option.

I don't know how David the Gnome counts as "anime" but I'm surprised that Unico's movies and some other things weren't mentioned. Water Child and Fire Child (or Water Child and Fire Prince....something like that) The Last Unicorn

Stuff like Noozles (I thought it was Noozles not "The Noozles") if you're lucky you can find episodes on youtube and same goes for Unico

Wouldn't David the Gnome count as Western Animation, being a Spanish cartoon? If The Last Unicorn you're talking about is the Rankin/Bass one, I'm pretty sure it's also Western Animation.

Incidentally, does di[e]ce really count? Just being lesser-known doesn't make it an example of this trope, and it was never licensed outside of Japan; unless it's hard to find in Japan, it could probable just go in the 'Japanese releases have only one print run' example further up the page, maybe amending it to specifically note manga qualifies as well. I'm pretty sure di[e]ce technically had two runs, since it had the original magazine run and then the collected volume.
