Is the Yu-Gi-Oh Franchise the only anime that localizes the Anime still?



  • Is the Yu-Gi-Oh Franchise that localizes the Anime still? Is mostly the BIGGEST Franchise here in American that still localizes the Anime still… Though I happy there still going used the localizes names for the New Movie coming out either in late 2016 or early 2017... :) With 4K Media Inc. aka 4Kids what it used to be called, Which is now own by Konami Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_Media_Inc. Anyway thankfully for 4Kids won that lawsuit back in 2011 to keep the rights… Which SAVE Yu-Gi-Oh Franchise here in American yes I said it... Which afterword that sold them self to Konami which is why that Konami own it... Sorry guys but I rather have better Voice Actor then everyone recast for a New Dub... Yes we may never get a Yu-Gi-Oh GX Season 4 English Dub but IF we do I WANTED it with the voice actor we had for Season 1-3 English Dub...



  • You do realize 4kids is the worst thing to ever happen to Anime, they heavily edited the first series and don't get me started on their butchering of One Piece

    WRONG! 4Kids made Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh EPIC! One Piece make have suck in edits with the dub but the voices actor and theme song where FARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR better then the Funi Voice Actor… 4Kids was great...

    I do /agree with gohan on that notion. As evidenced below:

  • Ha ha calling One Piece Rap good. I really want to take TGA's picture and put it right below this text right now.

    BUT at least 4Kids gave the original Pokemon theme song. In fact, I will agree they made Pokemon actually a good show despite butchering out some elements there also (such as Misty b-slapping Ash in the first episode) - now with the Pokemon Company and the continuing sub, I just can't bring myself to watch it ever again. Games FTW.

    However, to answer your question gohan, I'm pretty sure they're still doing Yu-Gi-Oh dubs. They're now 4K Media though and a Konami property - and with Konami, expect them to fire their most talented staff and send the rest of their stocks into shambles (RIP Hideo Kojima's legacy).

    No idea why for; not like anyone should even care about that "Vile Weed" of a show, in either case…

    4Kids is still doing it under the 4K Media name now… But there never been an English Dub Season 4 of GX which is sad... :( B/c it makes it look like Jaden die which is even more dumb since 4Kids hate using the word "die" in there dubs... Season 4 of GX need to be dub... And since that English Dub that beyond time movie it make it even more dumb b/c Jaden had powers that he did not get yet in the dub b/c that NEVER dub Season 4...

    4Kids REALLY know what that where doing in the beginning its sad that they cocky later on… Like all great company and b/c that 4Kids fell down hill b/c of it... That alway had some BEST theme song ever Dub by anyone... And there voice actor well alway spot on for the most part... Sadlly some of then left why dubs where going like in the case of Mai from Yu-Gi-Oh... The new voice actor for Mai for season 4 out where TRY WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY to hard to sound like the old Mai and sound like she was in the opera singing... Belive or not as much as One Peice edits where BAD in 4Kids dub... If that had NOT lost Pokemon Dub Rights I belive that would still be in business... And when I mean by that is NOT own Konami as that are now own by them...

  • Its very doubtful 4K will go back and do old series, from what I observed when a new series starts 4k typically abandons the current series in lieu of the new one. That's why we won't see season 4 of gx, season and the rest of season 4 and the majority of season 5 for 5ds. We did get the rest of Zexal although hulu only release

    If people demend it then it can happen… Also Komani own 4K now so that may wanted to do it to fit everything in...



  • I didn't say impossible, just unlikely at this point considering how much time has passed, the voice actors may have moved on to do other projects and would not be interested in coming back. I am not saying its impossible but many things have to go right to make it happen, including Konami thinking that it would make a profit by finishing those seasons, hiring the voice actors, translators and the like.

    I sure that can get the old voices actor back… I mean the DM voice actor are all mostly coming back for the new movie...



  • That is not guranteed some could have retired like the voice actor for Domon Kashuu from G Gundam which is why they had to recast him in the dynasty warriors gundam video games but at this point its just speculation

    I don't think anyone in GX retired…



  • Maybe not, but maybe they are no longer interested, sometimes its about the project not the money, sometimes actors move on and don't want to come back, not saying its impossible, but unlikely at this point considering 4kids track record on what happens when a new series launches, as of now they are more interested in Arc-V then finishing the unfinished series at least that is what I observed. Now I hope I turn out to be wrong and they finish the whole series, heck I would love it if it had dual audio so I could see the original intent not the edited version as well as the one I remember.
