Two big Japanese companies can’t take down a close bankrupt American company I guess.


I saw this promo on Toonzai one morning. I’m dying to see how much of an update this could be to the normal format and if these new rules might spice up this series in a whole new way.


Poor 5D fans, just as screwed as GX fans, why doesn’t 4Kids just finish those series instead of showing 3 episodes of Sonic X every week?
Also I want new episodes of Kai…

Man this is the last things I wanted to see 4Kids get ahold of currently.


I hope Cartoon Network gets to air Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s again. The Toonzai Kai I just don’t understand. How can they possibly just air the Saiyan/Namek/Frieza episodes into the ground? Not that it matters to me anyway. I caught them all on Nicktoons.

Zexal airs at 9:30 AM et.

Damn so they actually did acquire GX and 5D’s. Good for them and now they really can brag Nicktoons is “the center of the Yugiverse.” CN really lost out when they abandoned the rest of the 5D’s run.

I did start getting extremely nervous for Yu-Gi-Oh! when all slots but the 8PM hour got wiped out. (Weekdays 5PM/all weekend slots) It appeared grave but this is comforting.

Cool to see Crunchyroll playing series 1-4 of Yu-Gi-Oh!. I don’t really understand why Nicktoons hasn’t been playing GX and 5D’s at this point but it doesn’t seem like it’ll matter once Crunchyroll steals their thunder.
