The Spanish dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, which premiered in Latin American theaters this past weekend, has already come under fire from some fans. In developing the script for the Spanish-language dub, producers at the Optimedia Bond dubbing and post-production studio in Mexico purportedly utilized an illegal Spanish fansub of the English dub of the movie rather than have the English script professionally translated. This revelation came to light in a Facebook post from the fansubbers themselves, who proudly confirmed their involvement with the movie. The fansubbers also noted that they were not paid for their work. (The announcement has since been removed.)

This discovery further fans the flames among Spanish followers of Yu-Gi-Oh!, many of whom were already agitated after learning that Optimedia Bond’s dub of the movie would not include the original Spanish Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors. Optimedia Bond’s actions set a bad precedent in the Latin American market for what is supposed to be a professional production, hurting the producers and translators who do business the right way while impairing the licensing of future products in the region.

4K Media Adds Spanish-Dubbed Yu-Gi-Oh! Episodes to Hulu

4K Media (Konami) announced on Facebook today that it has added the Spanish-language dub of Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! to Hulu! All 49 episodes of season 1 are now available for your enjoyment.

Hulu’s episodes include the same Spanish dub found on volumes 1 through 11 of FUNimation’s season 1 DVD singles released between 2002 and 2003. (Oddly, the season’s last five DVDs don’t include a Spanish track.) FUNimation also released the Spanish episodes on VHS. This dub was produced for the U.S. and Latin America and differs from the Castilian Spanish dub produced in Spain by Jonu Media.

Hulu began introducing Spanish-language programming to its network in late 2011 when it signed a licensing deal with U.S. Spanish-language broadcaster Univision and launched Hulu Latino. Yu-Gi-Oh! joins Hulu’s growing selection of Spanish media, including anime like Pokemon and Inazuma Eleven.

If you like watching Yu-Gi-Oh! in Spanish, be sure to subscribe to the show on Hulu to show your support and to keep up to date on any new uploads.
