Yugioh Zexal

    I agree. I didn't appreciate GX near the end of its run because the whole school-setting just got so boring after a while. Season 3 tried to change stuff around, but by then it was too late. I really hope that the setting for Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal is a bit different. I'd like things to go back to normal. Just a kid living in a normal life while playing card games. Then things could get complicated as time went on or whatever. So long as a school doesn't play a large part, I'm happy.

    I think it will be like The Original series where it is set near a school and the main character will be given a signature card that will hog screen-time

    *Crosses Fingers for It to be like 5Ds*

    *Crosses Fingers Again for it to have a bit of violence in it*

    *Crosses fingers AGAIN for 4kids to not **** the dub up*

    Why would 4kids **** the dub up? NAS is making it very easy to dub this.

    Well, the dubbed version won't really bother me much since I no longer watch the dubbed versions of most anime haha. 4kids seems to get better at dubbing anime as time goes by though. The few dubbed episodes of 5Ds that I did watch were actually pretty good. I won't watch the dubbed version of Zexal as I said before, but I think the anime will be in good hands. I'm just sticking to the Japanese version of this anime since it'll air in Japan before it'll air in America. I guess I'm just really impatient :p

    I always say you should check out the dub periodically. I wonder who will voice Yuma, perhaps Jason Griffith. Or some female voice like Eileen Stevens. Seeing as we don't have a voice to match, there is no way to guess/

    the Jason Griffith route is the more plausible. 4kids tries to keep the VA gender matching the character gender. the only exceptions i've seen were Ash (when 4kids had pokemon) and Luffy (when 4kids had One Piece).

    indeed sir it is genius.

    Not just that, but Jason Griffith would be a pretty cool voice for him. But seeing as we don't know what the original sounds like, we can't know for sure. However, be sure that 4kids has probably already got their hands on some episodes.

    I don't think 4Kids has gotten any of the Zexal episodes yet. I don't know much about how the dubbing process works, but I'm pretty sure that they don't receive any episodes until after an anime premieres in Japan. As for voices: all of the 4Kids voice actors sound the same to me, so I don't really care about which VA will voice which character.

    Not true, 4kids bought all the episodes left in 5Ds, 90, all at once. Sure some trickled in as time passed, they got started way before they aired. When 5Ds first started, 4kids got the episodes before the series premiered as well.

    What's this? A beautiful picture of a farmer lovingly milking his prized cow? Oh wait. It's a big suit milking a cash cow. How wonderful.

    Why do people keep being surprised at these things? Obviously a cash cow that still sells is going to get more promotion.

    lol, Kazuki actually put quite a bit of work into this one. I don't think he did a drawing like this for Yusei or Jaden.

    The way he draws and colors is unlike how most artists do it. The fact he did it for Yuma shows he cared enough.

    It's in colour because its the front page. That's how mangazines have always worked.

    Because it makes him look like a guy. In some pictures he kind of looks like a girl...

    Probably to make it seem slightly more new and exciting. I wish they could have left the original series alone (yeah, I'm one of those people) instead of making more and more spin offs.

    Sorry for the DP, but this is kinda a big update

    We got an anime preview

    http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/yugioh-zexal/

    I don't know, it seems more than just quality shots, that was animation, something 5Ds has lacked even in Hara episodes (yeah, shots are good, but the overall flow if off). I like it, but that is just me. I have liked it since day 2, so yeah, I am a bit biased. But at least we now have an official translation, and see how the duel disk opens up, just as I thought it would, sorta. One slot opens, and it expands.

    Wait a second, are the cards using the actual background now from the real card game? That seems like a bad move, for dubbing at least.

    Yugioh cards are purple with a white border on the back in the future

    fantastic! hahaha

    I hope these new Excess summons or whatever change the game on a good scale, like synchros in 5D's

    maybe something the equivelant of DSF greatness lol (doubt it)
