Found by: Sailor Moon
During the mid 1990s, two companies, DiC and Toon Makers, were battling for the rights of the anime Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. DiC wanted to localize it for North American syndication, while Toon Makers wanted to rework the anime series entirely, into their live-action/animation Americanized version. In the end, DiC received the rights to the first two seasons of the series.
DiC had altered several things during their tenure with Sailor Moon, such as choosing to replace the already made Japanese soundtrack with their own, in-house work. Some songs from the soundtrack did get an official CD release, like the opening theme, and several of the insert songs from the show, on the few American CDs. The rest, including transformation and battle cues, have never been released in their untouched versions.
On November 20, 2014 the full Sailor Moon DiC soundtrack was found and uploaded to YouTube.
