Funimation today announced that it has acquired Manga Entertainment UK, a London-based anime licensor and distributor. Manga UK is the current distributor of all Yu-Gi-Oh! anime on home video in the United Kingdom and has also brought Yu-Gi-Oh! movies to theaters throughout the country. The company offers some Yu-Gi-Oh! Blu-ray and DVD products that are not available in other markets, like the remastered version of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light and Yu-Gi-Oh! movie bundles.

Manga UK confirmed that there will be no changes to its Manga UK brand and that its employees still remain with the company.

Funimation was the distributor of Yu-Gi-Oh! on home video in the United States until 2009.
