First availability of Animax Asia's controversial English dub in United States

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The Crackle video-streaming website has posted almost the entire series of the Rurouni Kenshin television anime series — as it was dubbed in English under the name Samurai X by Animax Asia — this month. This is the first time that this particular English dub has been available officially in the United States, although Sony Pictures Entertainment attempted to license this dub to American distributors a decade ago. A separate dub by Media Blasters ran on the Cartoon Network in 2003.

This Samurai X television anime dub is unrelated to the dub on the later ADV Films releases of the Samurai X: The Motion Picture and the two Samurai X video series, despite sharing the same name.
