Ok, this is a tad embarassing to admit, but I've been watching Yugioh GX recently through a website that uploads the episodes. It's cheesy, childish fun and I love it.

Now, I've heard people diss certain dubs of anime because they lose the spirit of the original Japanese versions, but the latest GX episodes take the cake.

They are, by far, the most abysmal dubs I've ever seen. Not only is the story of the original lost, THE PLOT LOSES ALL CONTINUITY.

At the end of Episode 102, the villain has one creature in play. Flash forward to the dubbed version of 103, he now also has one creature in play. A completely different one, with no explanation of how or why this creature is there. There is a cut in episode 103 of APPROXIMATELY SIX MINUTES OF PLOT that removes two fricking turns from the card game and some character dialogue.

It gets worse. At the end of 103, the hero is attacking the villain with his signature card. At the beginning of 104, what do you see? No attack. In fact, the attack is not mentioned, the effects of the attack are not shown (despite being a huge turning point in the game), a crucial plot element is just plain ignored because 4kids cuts out 5 minutes of THIS episode.

It's utterly abysmal. Yes, it's a kids TV show but to eliminate 9 minutes of footage for no real reason (I've seen the Japanese footage and I can't make any argument for removing it whatsoever) is just unforgivable, even if kids care less about the plot and only about the fact that the hero won in the end.

Rant over.

Has everything to do with the term: Violence. At least that is what I think.

There was no violence that was anything worse than previous episodes of YGO. A split-second edit that implied violence could have replaced any that existed at all; there was no need to remove 4-5 minutes of footage for one moment.

Anything is classed as violence these days, even if it isn't real. Sucks but it is true. Dunno if it was also the case here, but you never know.

Everything before the opening credits was deleted. It's more like 1min 20 rather than 5, but judge for yourself...

Indeed, looks pretty strange to me. All in all, it sucks. Kids love flashy displays of everything; they don't want a story these days.

In France, on the national channels, Naruto is ubercensored (in Germany even more, they censored when Naruto and Sasuke kissed) and the episode are not even in order, just to skip "violent" scenes. I wonder how it could be worse... Japanese footage subbed by good teams FTW

Confused Why are you guys even watching animes on Cartoon Network? I would have thought DBZ would have made it clear to stay away from this channel for good Rolling Eyes .
