Anecdote on Hoop City
- "Founded in August of 1996 by Mayuka to act as a backup to Boston City Sound Studios, Power Network and Cinelume due to an overload of work, otakus across America weren't very favorable about the early dubs from Hoop City, since at the time most of the actors the fledgling studio hired had no experience in voice acting since most of them had usually been regulars in local theater. The early dubs the studio put out were very subpar, for example Montana Jones had performances ranging from "adequate" to "downright awful" while Igano Kabamaru, a series we didn't consider dubbing for being "a little too Japanese", had such a bad dub with miscast voices and direction to the point where Hoop City had to re-record the dub in the early 2000's with somewhat better results. But then, in 1999, it happened. Hoop City recorded a good dub, being Heidi. It had superb performances from the then-child actors who voiced the leads, improved direction quality from Donald Curthoys, and a great translation and adaptation of the script."
