they shouldnt have tried to introduce popular shows that was targeted to an older audience and butchered it with censorship to make it more "appropriate" for younger viewers.

I wonder if 4K Acquisition Corp (a subsidiary of Konami) will produce a more uncut version of yugioh now? I know that they were going to use some of the same VA's Just wondering if the content will be more darker this time around.

Wow, you gotta hand it to them, they survived quite a while with how little the anime community supported them.
You gotta give them that at least.
Call it what you will, but they ruined a lot of good animes :/

That's the world of business and anything worth salvaging will be obtained by another company including the personnel. I never had an issue with 4kids but I never liked anything by them either. I think companies like CR and funimation are the leaders in improving the anime industry in the west and not companies running their business into the ground.

As for his reaction it is immature but honestly he has a right to his opinion. Its not like his forum post is the reason behind their poor decisions as a company. It is also not uncommon for anime companies to fail...there is a long history of it.

Razvan942 wished death on me. Go back and read the post, and then you'll see who the bigger asshole is here.

I bet you'd react the same way if Chick fil a went bankrupt. Wouldn't you? So to even wish death apon me because I celebrated the worse anime dub company of all time getting what they deserved just makes you the real d!ck here.

I don't know how you can call a dub "ruining" an anime. The content is still the same just the voice acting is different. Be honest how many of you found anime by not watching bad dubs on the TV? It may seem bad now but it was still the best we had for those who are not able to read subs or get good dubs

For the raw act of dubbing, yes. However, 4Kids did not merely make a dub, they did actually edit some programs to try to make them appeal to whom they wanted to target. Yu-gi-oh was actually one of their bigger examples; FUNimation had to actually release seperate 4Kids and uncut disks due to the video changes made. Then there were things like One Piece. And don't get me started on their mahou-shoujo licenses...

EDIT: Though, I suppose even still, they are better than Nelvana (responsible for Cardcaptors) or Fox Kids (who hired out for Escaflowne). Those two are the most infamous butcherings, moreso than even Yu-gi-oh. (At least Yu-gi-oh didn't try changing the main character like both of those...)

Plus 4Kids are racists.. changing the skin color on dark skinned characters to a whiter tone or some other color.

It's a shame that people have to lose their jobs, but 4Kids was a horribly corrupt company that deserves all possible hate.

Huh. Interesting.

For everyone that's seriously celebrating the fall of 4Kids, you should all be ashamed.

Not only will people be losing jobs and their means of support, but this means that now, regardless of how crappy their dubs may have been, the anime industry in Japan is going to be losing a player which means less money to be made. Regardless of what you may think, there is still some level of profit to be made from over in the states. But that level of profit is slowly dwindling as we only have a few companies left over here (Funimation anyone?) that will pay anime studios to license their products.

You guys should check out this video and maybe rethink your selfish celebrations:

Why are some of you feeling sorry for the people who's unemployed now?
They were part of this damn company, they worked on the animes they ruined, they're a reason why those animes got ruined.
They deserve it.
I hope they find another job though, that has nothing to do with entertainment.
