Bizarre the kiwis getting it and the ozzies not. Doesn't seem like it could be one of the DVD/BD distributors grabbing the rights ... they normally get both at the same time.

I would say it is no more bizarre than the US getting it but Canada not, and I suspect the reasons behind both are similar.

I'm not going to get into a bizaritude measuring contest ...
... That's also bizarre ... and has happened before, when a French company was involved in the production & grabbed the Canadian rights for the Quebec market. Given that France is also excluded, I would expect it would be something similar in this case.

If exclusive Australian rights are picked up, but not Kiwi, my first guess would be broadcast rights got picked up by somebody.

Unless the rights holder changed (always possible) 4K Media has Yu-Gi-Oh! in Canada as well. We even got Arc V on TV before the US

I've been waiting years for a YGO Simulcast...so I'm really excited! I hope they'll be able to open it up to more countries soon, too.

4K Media formerly 4kids, wondering if this show will be heavily localized as their former licensed shows.

Give us this in Canada already. There is no good excuse for us not to have it.

Your customers are asking.
