You can't watch this Mario anime



Published
From Mario's long history, there exists one anime featuring Nintendo's character that you CAN'T watch. The video isn't lost - it's actually safely stored in libraries across Japan. But these libraries only lend the Mario anime to people from a specific group. And if you're not in the group, then you can't watch this Mario anime!
