I've been watching Zexal both subbed and DUBBED.
It's an... interesting experience.

And this is also a prime example of American law system.

Not entirely- Japan did not follow proper procedures for terminating the contract. Which is why things ended the way they did. they didnt take 4kids to court to nullify the contract, the just declared it terminated ant told them they no longer had Yugioh. 4kids on the other hand, fought back, and took them to court over it. There was also some other babble about the charges some of which were withdrawn, and others invalidated.

also, @ Sakura: Well, whatever the case may be, I just heard of it.
...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.

Re: 4kids loses Yu-Gi-Oh. They also lose their programming block.

Slightly on and slightly off-topic here.

Yu-Gi-Oh's rights are now all in the hands of Konami.

CW4Kids/Toonzai is over in two weeks in favor of Vortexx, which will be programmed by Saban, which will retain Zexal in their block.

Guess 4Kids is finally dead.

Well, safe to say 4kids finally croaked.. *checks lineup* Wait. Cubix? They're SERIOUSLY bringing that back?  Here we go again.. ::)
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

E/I Mandate. If it weren't for that it would be safe to say that it wouldn't even be on there.

If you check Vortexx's website they don't even list it among the rest of the shows they're airing (Then again, they don't mention DBZ Kai or the Original YGO either, so it might be that they just picked out the important ones.)

Wow, you guys are quick.

This has been known for, what? Two months? Maybe more?

In any case... nothing will change. Konami/Saban will be using 4kids "former HQ" to [parasitic bomb] out the dubs now.

With 4kids employees.

Yup.

I just hope, Elik Alvarez and the rest of his 4kids composer buddies will be still making new music for the Zexal dub.
I want to hear their version of Tron's theme.

Yeah, yeah.

We've had slower news before.
