March was a great month for Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V as season 3 of the English dub found another new home — Hulu. The U.S.-based subscription VOD network is now one of three platforms to host the entire series in English; the other two are Amazon Prime and Kidoodle.TV. If you’re looking for the Japanese version instead, Crunchyroll has you covered.

Bad news for fans of classic Yu-Gi-Oh!. Today, Netflix removed seasons 4 and 5 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters while sparing the first three seasons. The network originally added seasons 3, 4, and 5 exactly two years ago. You can still find the full English-dubbed series on YUGIOH.com, Crunchyroll, Tubi, and other services.

Between March 23 and 31, the official Yu-Gi-Oh! YouTube channel live streamed the first five episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s non-stop. Over 430,000 duelists dropped by to see the action, which ended this morning. Were you one of them? If you like what you saw and want to watch the rest for free, Yusei is waiting for you on YUGIOH.com, Crunchyroll, and Tubi.

Is this the quickest disappearance and return of a show on Hulu ever? After a day of banishment, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is back on Hulu. All of the English-dubbed episodes from seasons 1 and 2 that were removed yesterday are available for your enjoyment once again. Phew!

Hulu removed Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V from its catalog earlier today. Seasons 1 and 2 of the English-dubbed anime joined the popular streaming network two years ago, on February 1, 2018.

The first two seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V are still streaming for free on Tubi TV. Subscribers of Netflix can also catch the same two seasons on its platform.

Meanwhile, Amazon Prime members are blessed with the entire series on its network — including season 3.

Crunchyroll continues to host the full series in Japanese with English subtitles.

Update (February 3): Nevermind! Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V has already returned to Hulu!

Hulu Removes Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie, Restricts The Dark Side of Dimensions to STARZ Subscribers

After streaming for one year on Hulu, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions saw some changes this past weekend on the popular video network.

As of Saturday, the remastered version of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie has expired on Hulu and is no longer available. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions is still available on Hulu, but only to subscribers of STARZ. The premium cable network has been streaming DSoD since April 2018. Hulu viewers can add STARZ to any Hulu plan for an additional $8.99 per month.

These changes are not a total loss though. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie is still streaming for free at local libraries that use the hoopla digital borrowing platform. It is also available for digital rental and purchase on select platforms, like Amazon, iTunes, and Microsoft Video. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions is available for rental and purchase as well on even more digital platforms, like Amazon, Google Play, PlayStation Store, and YouTube.

Both movies have also received physical releases on Blu-ray and DVD. The widescreen remastered version of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie seen on Hulu was released on home video in the U.S. last month, while Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions has been on sale in the U.S. since mid-2017.

Coincidentally, Funimation, the owner of Manga Entertainment UK, began streaming both movies in the United Kingdom and Ireland earlier this month. And in Japan, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions premiered yesterday on AbemaTV, a free video streaming network.

Yu-Gi-Oh! movie double feature time? Yu-Gi-Oh! movie double feature time. Hulu is now streaming both Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions! If you missed seeing Pyramid of Light in theaters earlier this year, you’ll definitely want to catch it here because it’s the newly remastered version with a stunningly clean widescreen picture.

If you are looking to make it a triple feature, Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time is streaming for free on CONtv and Tubi TV.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 1 & 2 English Dub Coming to Hulu

That’s right, Yuya, season 2!

At last, the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is available online. 4K Media has confirmed that both season 1 and 2 will be streaming on Hulu starting tomorrow, February 1. This is welcome news to American Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, who up until now have had no way to watch season 2. Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is currently airing on Nicktoons, but the network jumped to season 3 earlier this month after completing season 1.

The English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V has had a rocky presence online. Previously, Tubi TV began streaming season 1 in June 2017, but abruptly removed it less than a month later. On the other hand, the original Japanese version of the anime is available worldwide on Crunchyroll and is nearly complete.

Hulu Eliminates Free Video Streaming Service

Hulu and Yahoo View logos

American video-on-demand service Hulu announced today that it will no longer offer free streaming videos. Over the next few weeks, Hulu will phase out this ad-supported free service in favor of its two subscription plans — $7.99 per month with commercials, and $11.99 per month without. Hulu has been a destination for free Yu-Gi-Oh! episodes since 2010.

Don’t agonize too hard over this revelation, however. 4K Media (Konami) is a Hulu partner and the Yu-Gi-Oh! episodes on Yugioh.com, which are hosted on Hulu for U.S.-based viewers, aren’t going anywhere.

“There should be minimal impact to Yu-Gi-Oh! fans as free ad-supported content will still be available through distribution partner deals such as Yugioh.com, Comcast, Yahoo, etc.,” explained 4K Media. “This news will only impact users who visited Hulu.com via a computer and did not have a Plus subscription.” The company noted that such users account for “a very small number” of Yu-Gi-Oh! views — “less than one percent.”

Also today, Yahoo announced that its partnership with Hulu is expanding with the launch of Yahoo View, a new website for free TV and movies. Yahoo View’s library will include much of the programming that Hulu had offered for free — including the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series — and is supported by ads. Check them out:

So, if you’ve been relying on Hulu for your free Yu-Gi-Oh! fix, it’s time to change your routine. For everyone else, keep enjoying Yu-Gi-Oh! as usual!

Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Ends

February 22, 2015 at 6:00 pm | Posted in English dubbed, Konami, Yu-Gi-Oh!, ZEXAL | Leave a comment

The tears… They won’t stop…

After more than three years of augmented reality duels, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL high-fives the sky one last time in its finale, “ZEXAL Forever,” out now on Hulu. The English-dubbed version of the show ends with 146 episodes — the same number as the original Japanese version.

If you haven’t yet checked out Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, what are you waiting for? Take it from a long-time fan of Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! and the adventures of Yugi and his friends: if you’ve always had a soft spot for older Yu-Gi-Oh! series that has left you indecisive about committing to a newer series, make an exception and take a chance with Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL. Don’t be fooled by the show’s bright, bubble gum colors and young, wide-eyed characters. With a story that starts off innocently enough but that gradually spirals into a cold and twisted climax, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is an exceptional show has enough drama to excite even the most exhausted fans of the franchise. Who knows, it might even Xyz your expectations!

And if you’re a ZEXAL anime veteran who’s looking to join Yuma and Astral for even more extravagant exploits, why not expand your horizons with Shin Yoshida and Naohito Miyoshi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga? This ongoing series, which debuted in Japan in February 2011 (before the anime did!) starts off similarly to the anime, but quickly pivots into a unique story with its own extreme brand of madness.

It’s hard to believe that Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is only the second anime series in the franchise that has had every one of its episodes dubbed into English. To celebrate this milestone, I will be adding new pages with links to stream and download Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL (and GX and 5D’s). This something that I should have done a long time ago to better support the shows and that I hope will bring greater awareness of their availabilities. The pages will go up tomorrow, or whenever YUGIOH.com’s video feed is updated with the newest episode of ZEXAL.

Yami Yugi orders Des Volstgalph to attack the Big Five's Machine King in episode 112

4K Media (Konami) has begun updating YUGIOH.com to allow fans outside the United States to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! episodes directly on its website. While desktop users based in the U.S. will continue to receive streams via Hulu, those residing outside the U.S. will now begin streaming from Crunchyroll (if the video is available) rather than receiving a region restriction error message. Crunchyroll’s library includes episodes from all four Yu-Gi-Oh! series and is accessible to most of the world outside of the U.S. and Asia.

If you encounter any problems, do let 4K Media know. Be sure to include your location and what videos you are trying to watch.

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

September 2, 2014 at 4:54 pm | Posted in Duel Monsters, Konami, Spanish, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 4 Comments

Es hora d-d-d-d-d-d-del duelo!

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.
