Should be noted here that some of the earlier dubs for the anime they licensed were re-scored as was a common practice at the time, though this is mostly due to those early dubs being handled by Creator/MangaEntertainment, who infamously did this back in their early days to supposedly make it more accessible to an American audience [[note]] though this was also done to avoid paying to license the use of the original music [[/note]]. This resulted in such mutilations as was done to ''Dominion: Tank Police''. If you have the DVD release, switch back and forth between Japanese and English soundtracks. It's almost two different shows.

This resulted in such mutilations as was done to ''Dominion: Tank Police''. If you have the DVD release, switch back and forth between Japanese and English soundtracks.
