The founder of ADV goes on at length about the importance of the fanbase, then comes out with this:

When ADV thought a Scooby Doo-esque series called Ghost Stories would be a dud, it issued a version with an intentionally inaccurate translation of the script--redubbing the characters to be more American (the leader now has attitude, and the boring sidekick was made into a born-again Christian)--knowing that would stir powerful passions. Authenticity being the Way of the Otaku, fans obliged by erupting in a furor.

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
