Availability[edit | edit source]
In December 2010, a blog page named Philippine TV Anime uploaded the first three episodes through YouTube and embedded the videos onto individual posts on their blog, however, the videos themselves have long since been deleted and the blog hasn't been used since the end of 2010. Unlike this English dub, an unrelated English dub produced by Tokyopop from 2001 is available to watch online although only 15 out of 43 episodes were produced and dubbed.
