I've rewatched the Crystal dub a dozen times and I love the Viz dub a lot but I think I just found a major error in the dub that I hadn't noticed before and I don't think I've heard fans talk about much. There's a scene in episode two of season one of Crystal where Usagi goes to the library to invite Ami for ice cream. It's a bit hard to hear because Kate Higgins speaks so softly as Ami, but I'm pretty sure Ami accidentally calls Usagi "Serena" right in the middle of the Viz dub. Can anyone check this to make sure I'm not hearing things?

It's "Tsukino", Ami didn't start calling her by "Usagi" until the end of the episode and the name here matches the Japanese's "Tsukino-san".

Ok, so I was hearing things. I didn't think even Viz would make a goof this bad. It was hard to tell because Ami's voice was so low in this scene but Tsukino makes more sense.

I remember a similar situation about the German dub. It was in on of the episodes in R, the one with Shinozaki Makoto's friend and Falion cardian. During the scene in the hospital Ami says something that a lot of people hear as Usagi. It is possible for it to be the case.
