4kids filing for bankruptcy is old news

The only new thing that has happened recently *reading through their wiki page* is that 4kids has discontinued operations of 4 operating divisions: ad sales, productions, entertainment music, and entertainment home video as of August 14, 2012

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...)


not my point, my point is they were one of the few companies to actually release anime to younger audiences, thus directly attributing to the increase in sales in the rest of the industry

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.


Because the people who work(ed) for the company pretty much just do as they are told. The Higher ups say "Do this" the guys below pretty much either do it or get fired.

Nobody wants to be out of a job.

and in some cases it's not even the fault of the Higher Ups either. the rules for Syndicated Kids Television are, frankly, filled with crazy. You aren't allowed to point anything that even remotely resembles a gun at the viewers, you aren't allowed to punch people in the face (Kicking is OK though.) There is a limit to the number of Fart Jokes you are allowed to use in a half hour time slot.


The list is huge and incredibly stupid.


Remember Batman the Animated Series. The early seasons of it were for syndication, the later seasons were exclusive to WB television. Because of the Syndication rules Batman would kick everyone in the early seasons. Once the show went WB exclusive he was allowed to punch people in the face.




That said VG Cats nicely summed up my opinion of the company as a whole

4kids failed in so many ways. But you know, it's the other way around too.. I've never once heard a good foreign dub of an American/english show ever. They just put in what ever voice they can find off the streets IMHO. But never-the-less, 4kids my be out of the business, but it doesn't mean they won't stop creating horrific death cries from our tv sets.

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.


Nowhere in my post did I wish death upon you.Better polish up that reading comprehension of yours.
