The I hate 4kids forum

Lets kick that old dead horse by remembering why 4kids was such a lousy company, and why they deserved to go out of business.

    Yu-Gi-Oh's dub

    Post by Admin on Thu Feb 12, 2015 9:38 pm

    Let's talk about the dub that ended up being the death of 4kids. Yu-Gi-Oh was originally a show targeted to the older kids/teen audience, so of course 4kids decided it would be perfect to make it a show for little kids, brilliant move there. Not only was this dub a near total rewrite, arguably their worst dub ever until One Piece took the spot. This dub was anything but super special awesome. Topics to discuss: the bad accents, invisible guns, season 0, the shadow realm, not having a ghost of a chance, and that failed attempt at uncut DVDs.

    The anime that got me into anime in the first place. There's not much I remember about the original, other than them censoring Yami Bakura eating and the invisible guns that is (thank you 4kids memes). As for GX and 5Ds......one of my biggest problems.......they NEVER finished either of them. The name's of GX I grew up with, so I have a tolerance for those name changes (as with the original), though they don't make much sense as Yugi is still Yugi, Yusei is still Yusei and Jaden's last name is still Yuki. Edits for GX, all I remember visibly edited was "Alexis" and the other Obelisk blue girls were given swimsuits when they were in the hot tub. (The ONLY visible edit I will let slide) As for the GX script......"Build your own burger day"......need I say more?

    The original was decent. It went down hill with GX though, especially considering they didn't finish it.

    Actually the things 4kids edited are way beyond simply editing guns, and Bakura eating meat (for some reason). Nearly ever death reference in battle city was changed to the shadow realm, entire plots got rewritten (sloppily at that), and the music was (as with all their other 3rd rate dubs) replace with crap. Ya there was actually a lot that got changed, most of it being kinda stupid at that.

    True enough. Some of the music was......ok..... keyword "some" but yeah, most of it was crap. Plot rewrites don't surprise me one bit, that's one of 4shits' trademarks after all. The original Yugioh was the better of the three though. GX and 5Ds were just....ugh....GX especially with that stupid burger scene and all, not to mention Jaden FUCKING DIES! Seriously, if you're not gonna finish the dub, don't even start it in the first damn place.

    Finishing it, how about not starting from the beginning with the original series! As they would say, their dubs don't stand a ghost of a chance.

    I'm not gonna ban you on the spot this time, but I do need to remind you that the way you're speaking is considered "rude" which is against the rules, I'll give you a warning this time though. As for the edits in question, the problem I have is not over the fact that the edits exist, it's more that the edits are done so poorly, I can think of much easier ways they could have done these edits that would have been less sloppy looking. For example the guns could have instead been changed to look more like ray guns instead (which could be justified with the fact that Yu-Gi-Oh seems to have more advance technology as is), that would seem more convincing that just people pointing fingers or slingshots. And no the rewrites are not tolerable, I've already explained how they rewrote the entire battle city plot for no good reason, and add to that the way 4kids just adds bad jokes in everywhere thinking this is supposed to be some comedy routine, I can only tolerate hearing "you don't stand a ghost of a chance" being said so many times. The burger thing in GX is far from being a one time thing btw.

    If they had intended to finish it they WOULD HAVE finished it. The Japanese music was awesome, 4kids music score, I hesitate to even call that music. Calling that music is an insult to every musician in the world. "Oh, you're pointing at me, I guess I have to do what you say." Now if I wanted to force someone to go somewhere I would SO point at them. Please, like Kaiba would have gone with them just because they asked. And don't even get me started on the lame ass jokes. Joey: "They call me lucky left arm Joey" Desk lady: "But that's your right arm" Ugh, I just damn near lost my lunch.

    You don't have to be psychic to have determination, dumbass. And the music sucked ass. Let's see, you come to my house demanding I go with you to god know where, OF COURSE I'M GONNA FIGHT YOU! Why the hell do you think they had guns in the Japanese version, huh? The line DOES bug me you idiot, stop talking as if you can read my mind. Again, I'd complain if it were in the Japanese version, and you know why? Because the joke sucks so bad a hyena wouldn't fucking laugh at it! I don't want something to hate on, I wish I didn't have anything to hate on but 4kids had to make their dubs suck. Shitty jokes, shitty edits, shitty voices, shitty scripts, shitty music. They didn't even fucking try to do a good job!

    What did you all think of Yu-Gi-Oh's uncut dub with FUNimation?

    The line does bug me you idiot! Stop pretending as if you can read my god damn mind! Good jokes? Your sense of humor must suck as much as 4kids' did. Their jokes were total shit, hell I wouldn't even call them jokes because they weren't the least bit funny. So were their scripts and their edits and as for voices, need I remind you of Sanji? He sounded like a drunk retard with down syndrome trying to do a New York accent.

    You seem to talk as if you know me better than I do. That stupid little joke DOES bug me because it is the exact opposite of funny. I can appreciate a good joke or two in a dub but when you make most of the dialogue shitty ass jokes, THAT'S when I get irritated. Not even a hyena would laugh at such a stupid joke. And again, 4kids or no, original or dub bad writing is bad writing. Whether it was in the Japanese or another dub it would still be awful. The fact that you can even call it a "joke" shows what a poor sense of humor you have.

    What does "you don't stand a ghost of a chance" "GTG cutie pie" "I didn't know Vikings still existed. They mostly live in Minnesota." "what a digital dummy" and look what the Gengar dragged in" all have in common? All of these bad jokes have been said in a 4kids dub, and none of them are from One Piece.

    If it were in the Japanese I'd hate it just as much. Actually no, I'd hate it more if it were in the Japanese because they put actual WORK into the scripts instead of throwing in filler jokes. You don't know a damn thing about me. That "joke" annoys me because it is so stupid and not at all funny. Their jokes were never funny. There are two idiots in my class that laugh at literally EVERYTHING and even they wouldn't laugh at the "jokes" 4kids put in their dubs. The hyena thing is a fucking expression, dumbass. I fail at common sense? Look who's talking, the guy that said he'd "go to congress and demand 4kids (which no longer exists) have the right to MURDER people who hate them." Who's lacking common sense again?

    I find it amusing that the choice words you tend to use on others (IE ignorant, lying, delusional, hypocritical, diabolical, sadistic, creep, childish, stupid, etc...) are always words that apply far more accurately to you than any of us.
