B't X (ビート・エックス Bito Ekkusu) is a science fiction anime based on the manga created by Masami Kurumada, the creator of Saint Seiya. It originally aired from April 6, 1996 to September 21, 1996 on TBS, consisting of 25 episodes. The series concluded with 14 episodes of the OVA second season titled B't X Neo.
The series was originally licensed by Illumitoon Entertainment in 2006 and published on DVD via Westlake Entertainment. The series was dubbed at CRM Studios in Dallas, Texas, and featured many voice actors from FUNimation's talent pool.
Two dual-audio DVDs were released by Illumitoon, covering the first eight episodes, with three other volumes being announced, before being cancelled. It is unknown how many episodes of the series were exactly dubbed, though the first 14 episodes were available on-demand via the Anime Network. Though the exact number of episodes dubbed could be as high as 20 considering the three other cancelled DVD volumes (which would've likely had 4 episodes each).
In 2016, the anime was relicensed by Anime Midstream, who announced they'd re-release the series with both the original Japanese version and the dub. On July 20, 2018, it was revealed that Midstream had produced a redub for the series, provided by Sound Cadence Studios, due to the original dub being unfinished. The dub featured Eric Vale returning to the role of Teppei, as well as Jeremy Inman returning as ADR Director. On April 12, 2019, Midstream announced that they'd be releasing the sequel series B't X Neo on DVD, completing the series.
