  • A test pilot dub was produced by TMS and Ocean Productions at some point in the 1990's in an attempt to market the series worldwide. This dub included mandated specific localized character names, which were also used in the Latin American Spanish Dub (Hikaru is renamed Luce, Umi is renamed Marine, and Fuu is renamed Anemone). This dub featured a new opening theme song, which would later be re-used by Ocean in the soundtrack for the Westwood dub of Dragon Ball Z. This pilot was heavily criticized by fans who had the chance of seeing it screened at conventions, as well as by those who had worked on the English adaptation of the Rayearth video game. This test dub would eventually be included as a special feature on Discotek's DVD and Blu-Ray release.
    • The lone known voice actor for Ocean's dub is Venus Terzo, who voices Hikaru/Luce.
  • Another dub reportedly exists, produced by the New York-based company Summit Media Group.[1] This dub was pitched to networks such as Fox Kids, and there were hopes to air it in syndication by September 1995. However, due to the lack of interest or buyers, this adaptation fell through and was shelved.
