    Maybe now they'll find someone who'll actually dub Yugioh WELL.

    Screw that, I would've devoted my life to them if they had closed down 4Kids completely.

    Well, 4Kids did start doing an uncensored and uncut dub of the show exclusive to their YouTube account and that was decent...a shame it only lasted two episodes or something like that.

    So, does this mean that 5D's won't be continuing on North American TV? I wonder how many kids are going to rage if that happens.

    But what of the 10th anniversary movie's DVD and TV airing?

    I wonder what will happened to our favorite abridged series.

    Um, both or either of you may be speaking in sarcasm, but 4Kids lost Pokemon a good 5 years ago now... which was one of their only dubs which I actually really liked.

    So dubs that they eventually lost the license to because of higher-ups that had enough of 4kids:
    - Pokemon
    - Ultraman Tiga
    - One Piece
    - Yu-Gi-Oh!

    Couldn't tell, to be honest.

    With how bad the series has been the past few years I figured 4kids was behind it.

    Honestly? I can picture them pulling a GX: canning 5ds half way and just putting on Zexal.

    I used to love that show and the card game. I was a Yu-Gi-Oh fanatic. I still have my tournament winning Insect deck.

    No more Yu-Gi-Oh?

    Brooklyn rage!

    (seriously, though, it's about time someone called 4Kids into account for their general suckiness)
