To be fair though, he only really ever took out scumbags.

Although sometimes, he really did some [tornado fang]'d up stuff.


I mean, Kaiba might have been beyond [tornado fang]'d up, But Yami DID put him in a vegetative coma until like, halfway into Duelist island. (AKA when the Kaiba imposter shows up in the anime- The oriinal was a puppet master with a creepy Kaiba puppet who he claimed had Kaiba's soul)
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

My opinion of 4Kids getting sued: It's about f***ing time!
I mean, seriously, with the stink that fans raised about how horrible they dub anime, I'm surprised it took so long for someone in Japan to investigate them for an excuse to do so.

Also, for the Yu-Gi-Oh manga. If I recall, Pegasus stuffed Yugi's Grandpa's soul into a camcorder instead of absorbing it into his eye. Plus, instead of dumping Bandit Keith into the ocean, I recall he turned Keith's hand into a revolver and made him shoot himself in the head.

Yeah, even the duelist kingdom part was a bit messed up.

Does he? I dont recall that. though then again, i didnt see much of the Duelist Kingdom chapters.

I DO recall Bakura impaling his hand on a Tabletop RPG tower set though. That was great.

Also, Mahado Sacrificing himself, and becoming the Dark Magician. By walking into a pendulum saw. Dayum.

though ALOT more people die in the manga and unedited anime. Its 4kids that glances over that [parasitic bomb].

Indeed. Though, I didn't know Mahado sacrificed himself. I thought he made a wrong step and got splattered. >3>

If you mean season zero then yeah, that's usually what people mean by it since AFAIK it and the first 7 volumes of the manga it's based on (before the whole card game thing became the focus) are similar yet still quite different.

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

Oh no, that was all just as planned. He basically fused his soul with his spirit monster.

Also, lol at Kaiba Sheen.

On Wednesday, the North American media distributor 4Kids Entertainment filed a Form 8-K report to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to address TV Tokyo and Nihon Ad Systems' (NAS') recent lawsuit against 4Kids and their letter of termination for 4Kids' Yu-Gi-Oh! ...


...In the report, 4Kids stated that on March 27, it informed the two licensors that their letter of termination "did not comply with the 10 business day notice and cure provision" written in the agreement, and states that it has rejected the termination letter "as wrongful and devoid of any factual and legal basis." 4Kids further reported that the licensors reiterated their intent to terminate on March 30, and that the American company intends to "vigorously oppose" said termination.

Yeah, they KNOW that they will very well die if they lose Yugioh, so they will fight it to the bitter end to keep their grip on it.

Though Japan, with all the [parasitic bomb] it's going through probably isn't going to put up with their [parasitic bomb] and will no doubt hit them hard.

I am amazed I haven't seen this yet.

I really don't have too much to say other than, "4Kids, you made my childhood a happy one. Now go to hell."

That is all.
Courage is the Magic that turns Dreams into Reality.

I learned that all things explode in slowmotion if you punch them hard enough.

You may have to be on fire for that to happen, though.

update on the matter

The North American media distributor 4Kids, which is filing for bankruptcy in the Southern District of New York, filed a motion on Friday requesting that the bankruptcy case's judge, Shelley C. Chapman, issue an order to stay (suspend) co-licensor Asatsu DK's (ADK's) attempts to exercise control over the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime franchise in the United States.

Will nothing stop 4Kids from grabbing their hands on Yu-gi-oh? I really would love to see Season 4 or final season of Yu-gi-oh! GX in English as it's the last arc never to air or finish.

But if it doesn't oh well.

This is slightly old news, but I just found out so its new to me:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-12-31/4kids-yu-gi-oh-license-is-still-in-force-court-rules

4kids won the court case, they get to keep their contract till it expires. (though after it does, im pretty sure they wont get a new one from Tv Tokyo )

You assume I watch CW 4kids. I have not touched the CW on Saturday mornings since 4kids took over and started porting all their Fox box shows to it.

I also don't have cable, so I don't get Cartoon network, which I think gets Yugioh too doesn't it? So I'm well sheltered from the horrors of 4kids.

I also just simply haven't been watching too much TV at all. Nothing that good on these days.
