Exclamation 4Kids Being Sued

And here we all thought that the only thing 4kids was in fault for was it's terrible dubbing of our favorite animes. THINK NOT!

"The Japanese animation studio that first created the anime hits is attacking, claiming that 4Kids owes it millions of dollars for making secret agreements with TV networks and home video distributors as well as making improper royalty deductions, including for the cost of the actual dubbing. As the result of alleged contractual breaches, the Japanese companies behind the show reveal they have just terminated their licensing agreements with 4Kids. They now want past money owed too."

TV Tokyo and Nihon Ad Systems have failed their suit in New York's federal court system. The piece provides some interesting examples and highlight's FUNimation's apparent role in it as well as indicating that Cartoon Network and others were caught up in the questionable deals that 4Kids Entertainment made.


For example, 4Kids is said to have made an agreement with Funimation Productions, giving it the right to exploit the YGO series on home video. "4Kids conspired with Funimation to fraudulently hide from Plaintiffs more than 45% of the total income Funimation paid to 4Kids from the sale of the home videos," the complaint states.

Allegedly, 4Kids not only licensed YGO, but also several other Japanese animation series it didn't own. Under the terms of this supposedly secret deal, which allegedly included a strict confidentiality clause, 4Kids didn't have to do much besides perform certain marketing services. It was Funimation's job to produce and distribute the series, and for this right, Funimation paid a $1.3 million advance and gave over nearly $3 million in revenue, which was allegedly then hidden from the plaintiffs.

I really never was a fan on 4Kids to begin with. I do realize that others have their opinions on stuff and I respect that. My view on them though is that personally. . they butchered the animes that they have done. For them to go this low? That kinda proves a point. I'm not exactly sure on how to really word this, but my opinion has been spoken. I for one am not a big fan of 4Kids no matter what anyone tells me.

I feel for you, I could only imagine what it would be like to follow an anime only to have the whole thing scrapped.



I always knew those donuts looked like riceballs!
but yeah good riddance, so long as someone else will do it and do a better job too.

I'm kinda glad the only anime distributor we have in Asia is Animax. o_o

Well it's about darn time they were put right. From what I've seen a lot of people aren't happy with 4kids. Will this raise even more questions as to how terrible their quality is? I believe so.
