This is too bad. So the chances of this happening might be as good as the show getting a proper Blu Ray... If the masters as lost I feel stupid for not downloading them while they were way more accessible.
"Currently, the Chilean channel ETC has the original digitized masters of series dubbed by Intertrack, Audiomaster 3000 and other dubbing studios previously acquired by it and distributed by Cloverway for Latin America. However, these do not have their licenses updated and some of them are damaged or deteriorated over time (depending on the date of their digitization). It is assumed that the Mexican company Televisa also has the same most preserved masters. It is also rumored that Ecuavisa also has some of these preserved."
However, it is known that the staff at Toei had access to the DiC dub back in the nineties, and even put fragments of it in a short "multi-language" bonus in one of the LaserDisc memorials. But knowing this company and for how long SM was in licensing limbo, I really doubt they still have it in good condition.
