Even though the full first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V has been available on Blu-ray, DVD, and DTO for almost a year, Nicktoons only recently finished broadcasting the season on TV. Now, as the network prepares to continue the series this weekend with new episodes, TV listings show that Nicktoons is skipping season 2 and airing the first episode of season 3. Nicktoons has an unfortunate reputation for making last-minute changes to its schedule, so might this be an error?

“I can confirm the schedule is correct,” said Bronte Barbarito, coordinator of corporate communications at Nick, when questioned about the listing.

Barbarito did not address questions about whether Nick has broadcast/streaming rights to season 2, or whether that season might still be offered at a later date.

4K Media did not reply to inquiries at the time of writing.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V debuted in the U.S. on Nicktoons in February 2016. The U.S. was the third English-language market to receive the show, after Canada in July 2015 and Australia in October 2015. Both countries have aired seasons 1 and 2 of the anime and are currently on season 3.

Look for the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V season 3, “A Warlike Welcome,” on Nicktoons this Saturday, January 13. Check your local listings for the exact time.

And Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time is available on CONtv and Tubi TV.

Twitch has announced on its TwitchPresents channel that its 15-day Yu-Gi-Oh! marathon will now begin on October 23 at 3 pm ET/12 pm PT instead of its originally scheduled date of October 15. The company is postponing the event because of TwitchCon, which takes place on October 20 through 22.

“Many TwitchCon attendees […] were bummed that they’d miss the Yu-Gi-Oh! marathon,” said Twitch in its announcement. “We certainly don’t want you all to have to choose between watching an incredible anime, and watching (or attending) the biggest Twitch party of the year.”

StreamFourStar’s pre-show is also delayed and will take place on October 23 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT.

Behind the Scenes: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Main Title Music

Freddy Sheinfeld giving a walkthrough of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Main Title Music

What goes into composing and orchestrating Yu-Gi-Oh! music for the big screen? In his latest video, Yu-Gi-Oh! composer Freddy Sheinfeld takes an in-depth look at the main title music of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, breaking down its different parts and expounding on his writing process. Composers, arrangers, and Yu-Gi-Oh! music enthusiasts — this video is for you! And even if you don’t know anything about music composition, you can still sit back and enjoy the intricacies of a great score.

Sheinfeld begins by outlining his goals of easing the audience into the movie with an introduction that is slow-paced but that also incorporates the small, fast, visual elements that are happening on screen. He then walks through the instruments — the brasses, woodwinds, strings, and choirs — and how each of them contributes to the texture, color, and feel of the visuals. All throughout, he emphasizes how he carefully uses them to match the pacing of the visuals and build expectation, from the opening shots in space, building up to the huge moment when Kaiba’s space station appears, to when the title appears.

Sheinfeld concludes by saying that he next wants to make a video breaking down one of the action cues, which is “super, super complicated.” If you like what you see and want to learn more, let him know!

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Replacement Discs Now Shipping

*Polite applause*

Anchor Bay has begun mailing out Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions replacement discs. If you emailed Anchor Bay requesting a replacement, you will soon receive it in the mail, if you haven’t already. As promised, the new Blu-ray and DVD have fixed the dubtitles found on the old discs when playing the movie in Japanese, replacing them with accurate subtitles just like those on Manga Entertainment UK’s releases. The replacement discs have an identical label to the old discs.

As a reminder, Anchor Bay is not recalling the old discs. It is unlikely that those original printings have sold out, and there is no word on when these replacement discs will hit store shelves or if it will even be possible to differentiate between a package containing an old and a new disc. So, if you want to guarantee yourself a copy of the movie without dubtitles, you must buy a copy of the movie now and email Anchor Bay for a replacement. It’s not too late to do so.
