    What they say is:


    The Hollywood Reporter
    ***SPOILER***



    Anime News Network
    ***SPOILER***




    So... yeah. 4KIDS sorta apparently did frauds and underpaid NAS and stuff, what will happen next is up to the court.

    Personal comment:

    ***SPOILER***

    Wow! I mean, you wait for something like this to happen and when it does...what can you say? Hopefully, this means that the license will be picked up by a distributor that will release the show uncut and with the original Japanese names for several of the characters intact.

    Hopefully they realize that 4Kids is evil, not LittleKuriboh. That guy's been banned enough times.

    Wait, Al Kahn stepped down a while ago. Wouldn't most of this be his fault, though?

    Yeah I couldn't remember if we already had a Zexal thread or how far back it was, but he did mention the lawsuit too, and this was still on the first page of thread topics.

    Oh I definitely like the dub! I just think they could've made much better choices as a company.

    According to this link (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-12-31/4kids-yu-gi-oh-license-is-still-in-force-court-rules), 4Kids won the suit, because TV Tokyo and others did not terminate properly.
