History

In 2010, Vitello Productions and French company GONG produced an English dub pilot under the name Finding Paradiso. Finding Paradiso used an LA-based voice cast. The pilot was a dub of the fifth episode "The Saudade of Fools, Part 1" (A Saudade dos Tolos, Parte 1). Various names were changed to sound less Japanese and it was set in real-life country Brazil rather than Diamandra. An expositional intro with live-action footage was added to the dub. It also had a different opening theme and music score.[1] The dub was never picked up. However, the title was later used for the French dub. The pilot can be found in Vitello Productions' official website as a .zip file.[2] In 2013, FUNimation Entertainment licensed the anime and produced a different English dub which used a Texas-based voice cast and had the original opening and score.
