Officially-subtitled Japanese episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters have begun to trickle out of the vaults of 4Kids Entertainment! Earlier today, previously-uploaded raw episodes 1, 2, 3, 13, and 14 saw the addition of English subtitles using YouTube’s captioning/subtitling system. The videos are now ready to be streamed and enjoyed by all Japanese- and non-Japanese-speaking fans! You can find them in 4Kids’ playlist for Japanese episodes or via YouTube’s Shows section.

If the subtitles don’t automatically appear for you, click the “up” arrow on the bottom-right corner of the video player and press the “CC” button.

The subtitles of episodes 1 through 3 are newly added, while those of episodes 13 and 14 first saw some testing during a trial run with the YouTube soft-subs system a few days ago.

Is this really happening? 4Kids’ Nameless Cubicle Office Guy warns of flying pigs outside our windows. Even Kaiba seems somewhat surprised, but tries to stay composed…

“This is my serious face.”
I think I still like Yuugi’s face better. :D

While I haven’t yet watched these videos in their entirety, a quick flip-through shows that the subtitles in episode 1 are mistimed beginning at the episode title card, and a few of the <i> and </i> HTML tags are still leftover in episode 14 from the subtitles test. Notice any other glitches with the subtitles? As a whole, what do you think about these subbed episodes? Let the NCOG know by leaving a comment on his blog or on the 4Kids YouTube channel!

These five episodes are only the beginning! There’s more coming soon, says the NCOG, so spread the good word!
