IIRC, Viz's release of the X manga was put on hold because they used
anime artwork on one of the covers back in the days of $16 flipped
graphic novels. Going against the licensor's translation notes is a

Doing things without permission is why Four Shoujo Stories went out of print.
In the case of Godzilla's roar and the Simpsons, Fox being bigger than
Toho just might have something to do with it.
