At its Anime Expo 2015 panel today, Crunchyroll announced that it will begin streaming the English-subtitled version of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX beginning on August 1! The series will be available to viewers worldwide (except Asia, Italy, San Marino, and Vatican City). This will be the first time Yu-Gi-Oh! GX receives an official, uncut, subbed release anywhere in the world. Additional details about the show will be announced by CR at a later date.
Crunchyroll is already streaming 4Kids Entertainment’s English-dubbed version of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX for audiences outside the U.S. and Asia, while YUGIOH.com and Hulu carry the dubbed show for American viewers. Currently, Crunchyroll is also the only place to watch the entirety of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s subbed.
At last! It’s hard to believe that plans for a subbed release of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX were first announced way back in 2009 by 4Kids. Since then, details about the endeavor have been scarce, with the last “official” mention of the project coming in July 2011 by 4Kids Production’s music editor bacondevil. Needless to say, it is fantastic to see an initiative that was thought long-forgotten finally realized.
Happy Independence Day to my fellow American Yu-Gi-Oh! fans!
