Status: Partially Found (episodes) Lost (Japanese audio)

Bit the Cupid is a Japanese anime series produced by Group TAC. Featuring character designs by Susumu Matsushita and CG-animation, the show ran for 48 13-minute episodes on TV Tokyo between April 1995 and March 1996. The show would later be dubbed in various countries in the late 1990's, eventually receiving a English dub.

The show has since become lost media, with very few home releases ever being made. Only 16 out of the show's 48 episode run have been found.

Japanese Audio[edit | edit source]

The only Japanese media that has resurfaced of the show is the Japanese credits theme, as it was released on CD at one point.

Chinese VCDs[edit | edit source]

Bit the Cupid would be released on VCD in China, dubbed in Chinese. Only 15 episodes have been known to be released in the format, evidenced by a listing of all the VCDs.

These would later be ripped by a user to youku.com, where it would be reuploaded to YouTube a decade later.

English Dub[edit | edit source]

On January 13, 1998, the Fox Family Channel announced their inaugural lineup of television shows. This included an English dubbed version of Bit the Cupid set to air in the morning hours.[1] Produced by Saban Entertainment, the dub was directed by Marc Handler and featured Richard Epcar, Tony McDougall, Jerry Gelb, Frank Catalano and Lex Lang.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

There are no known home video releases of this dub, with the only available footage online coming from a 1998 Fox Family upfront promo.
