 3 Shout Outs!
Yu-Gi-Oh! is a very strange franchise. In theory, 4Kids/4K Media seems like a good fit for it. The aim of the show is advertising a kid's card game, and 4Kids has experience with children's entertainment. The problem is, Yu-Gi-Oh! isn't a kodomo like Pokemon. It's actually part of the shonen demographic (One Piece, My Hero Academy, Death Note, etc.), and as a result, has a much higher level of objectionable content.

Toning down or removing this content isn't an issue. To their credit, 4Kids/4K Media has been able to do that so far. But it comes at a price. A lot of this content was directly tied to the plot or characterization of the characters, so the omissions (while understandable), ultimately diminish the quality of the show more.

@1dbad Agreed. I have been following Yu-Gi-Oh since it came out and the timeline is ****ing weird as Hell. Like GX was okay because it was set right after the 1st series. 5ds was in the Future but then Zexal I have no idea where to place Zexal in the timeline. Then ARC V introduces us the Standard, Fusion, Synchro, and XYZ Dimension. Which basically puts all the shows after the 1st series as a separate reality. But not really because we get alternate versions of the characters of those Dimensions.

I've always felt 4Kids/4KMedia did a better job handling kids' targeted Anime than Yu-Gi-Oh (makes sense, the company's name says it all about what they're about), really, and that's still my opinion to this day.

Still, considering 4Kids/4KMedia' infamously bad reputation (most of it is deserved, but not quite all of it, IMO), Yu-Gi-Oh does have some of their better voice over/voice acting work in general (or at least, for Duel Monsters' dub). It's not my favorite English dub VA cast to come from them, to be perfectly honest, but it's still nice that most people seem to approve of their actors' work here.

@WrightWay Sorry about the late reply, never got notified! Agreed. 4Kids/4K Media are actually a decent company when they're working with the right kind of shows. I also thought their original cartoons were pretty good.

Yeah, the original Yu-Gi-Oh! dub is one of their best as far as the voice work goes. I even think GX's dub started off with a solid cast, so I'd definitely consider voice acting one of the stronger points of their Yugioh efforts. (even if their casting has grown more hit or miss since 5D's) That's part of why I'm so passionate about an uncut Yugioh dub. If they managed to excel that much with watered down content, just imagine what these actors could do with a quality script to work from.

"just imagine what these actors could do with a quality script to work from"

Watch the best produced dubs that are produced in NY that aren't handled by 4Kids. You've heard of those kinds of dubs, yes?
