Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": English speakers probably first met Miki and Kentarou when they first played Sengoku Rance. Otherwise, they first met Miki when they played Rance I.
The Western Animation
Banned Episode: A semi-example. The episode I Want to be a Baby is for some reason never available on DVD, even on the so-called complete series boxsets. This is weird as the episode is available over Channel 5's On Demand site (which is of no help to those living outside of the UK).
Recursive Adaptation: The TV series is based on books by Tony Ross. It spawned more books that's based on the show.
Screwed by the Network: As per usual for any show airing on NTV7 Malaysia, Season 3 was screwed by said channel and has never aired in the country.
