I don't know what else to really say... 4kids is being sued by t.v. Tokyo for 4 million in damages/royalties for the yu-gi-oh series over the course of really complicated legalism stuff but still I find this to be the most funny thing to happen in a long long time. All I can really say is what's your thought's and opinions on this and well it looks like the new yu-gi-oh anime will not be coming here anytime soon because of that. All I can say is time to make a quick buck with my cards online lol.

More news update apparently 4kids made 150 million alone off of yu-gi-oh between 2001-2009....damn

Again more updates in the case apparently 4 kids shelled out 1 million in good faith towards t.v. Tokyo and are willing to go as far as chapter 11 bankruptcy to keep the license "apparently they still have some rights to it". All I have to say is wow, Just wow I am interested to seeing where this is heading now.

Serves them right. 4Kids is finally getting what they deserve. And I hope other companies sue 4Kids too for the way their animes were dubbed.

I saw the news on ANN and couldn't help but laugh at the irony. I never did like 4Kids's policies and practices for Anime. I don't think 4Kids can survive this blow considering their current financial situation. I feel for the poor employees stuck in the middle, but the company in general always left a bad taste in my mouth. I can't say I'll miss them if this turns out to be the final nail in the coffin for 4Kids. I would love to see an uncut (and accurately) subtitled version on "Yu-Gi-Oh!" someday since 4Kids never gave it to us, but depending on how ticked off Toei is, that may never happen. For now, I will wait and see what develops with this whole legal situation since it is too early to really tell what kind of an impact this will have on 4Kids and possibly Funimation.

I kinda feel sorry for them, Yugioh is just about the only money maker they have left. they already have a bad rep with other shows like pokemon and One Piece, so do they deserve all the hate they get? thats a yes and a no from me. I feel sorry for the random people who might lose their jobs, but had nothing to do with it, after this is over.

It's unfortunate, yet at least we don't have to worry about 4Kids and their heavy censoring. Yugioh was probably the only show 4kids had left that kept it going.

They got what's coming for them, they're just a bunch of lying hypocrites who insulted the intelligence of our economy. Good riddence to them.

I feel sorry for the employees but the people in charge of that company always struck me as being scumbags. If the allegations in this lawsuit prove true then it proves my gut feelings were right.

It's just too bad that regular folks have to get caught in the middle, the regular employees are the ones who will suffer most while the scumbags look for ways to salvage as much cash for themselves before they hightail it out of there.

i am going to play devils advocate here and say one thing for 4kids they did a decent dub on yu-gi-oh I actually liked the va's even though there where "lol i am holding a gun missing scenes" 4kids did do there job and get mainstream kids interested in anime and if not for that there wouldn't be teens and young adults watching anime now. I know that sounds stupid but look at the vast majority of ages of people on here they are around 16-30 so many grew up in the 90's and saw anime in it's prime on t.v. but this aside This is it for them, I don't see a crippling company making any sort of a come back after this if not at all. I just hope funimaiton doesn't get affects because I want my damn railgun/index blurays already >_>

This will be what puts 4kids out of business, or at least Bankrupt.
