ANN has received confirmation from S'more Entertainment that the packaging for its home video release of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo mistakenly indicates that it contains an English-language subtitle track. While both Japanese and English language audio tracks are available on the release, Amy Schorr, President of S'more Entertainment stated:
"The episodes were never available in a sub-titled format and neither TOEI [nor] S'more could justify the cost of creating new versions of the series. DVD sales have plummeted to the point where most companies wouldn't be willing to commit the money needed for packaging [and] authoring, but we felt the series was important enough to justify any risk."
Schorr also said that "It wasn't our intention to mislead anyone and I'm hopeful the fans will embrace the series and appreciate the effort that [went into] creating these packages."
