Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Season 1 DVD Box Set Slated for October 14 ReleaseJuly 14, 2014 at 5:10 pm | Posted in English dubbed, GX, Konami, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 2 Comments
4K Media (Konami) announced today on Facebook that its next Yu-Gi-Oh! anime DVD release will be Yu-Gi-Oh! GX season 1! The six-disc box set is scheduled to hit store shelves on October 14 at a suggested retail price of $44.99 and will contain 4Kids Entertainment’s English-dubbed version of the first 52 episodes. Like the DVDs of the Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! series, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX will be distributed by Cinedigm on its Flatiron Film Company label.
Yu-Gi-Oh! GX was previously distributed by FUNimation between 2006 and 2009. FUNimation released episodes 1 through 52 of the show on four single-disc DVD volumes and two 2-disc DVD volumes. Seasons 2 and 3 of the show have never seen a DVD release in the U.S. and season 4 has not been dubbed in English.
Unlike the Classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, 5D’s, and ZEXAL series, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX has never seen a single uncut, subtitled episode released on any medium. The last official word about a potential GX subbed release came in July 2011, when 4Kids Production’s music editor bacondevil revealed in a Reddit AMA (As Me Anything) that 4Kids was in the process of subbing season 4 of GX. For absolute clarity, 4K Media confirmed that Cinedigm’s release will not include the original Japanese version.
