It’s been a long time coming, but the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime has at last found its way onto the holy grail of video streaming platforms: Netflix! 4K Media (Konami) announced earlier today that English-dubbed episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! are coming to Netflix, beginning with season 1 tomorrow, November 1. The videos will be accessible not only to fans residing in the United States, but also to those in Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. International fans will have even more streaming options to look forward to on YUGIOH.com in the coming months, 4K Media noted.
Yu-Gi-Oh! streams have come a long, long way since the early 2000s when they were only available on 4Kids Entertainment’s websites. In the U.S. alone, various Yu-Gi-Oh! videos can today be found on a slew of online platforms, including Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, iTunes, Nicktoons, the PlayStation Store, Vudu, Xbox Video, and more. Adding the coveted Netflix deal to the list is quite a feather in 4K Media’s cap.
4K Media’s announcement also highlights Manga UK’s DVD release of Yu-Gi-Oh! season 1 across the pond on November 17. Manga UK formally announced the release just prior to the MCM London Comic Con last weekend, though eagle-eyed fans may have spotted it when it was first added to Manga UK’s store earlier this month.
