4Kids deals Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL their way


4Kids deals Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL their way

In the ongoing battle between 4Kids and Yu-Gi-Oh! (specifically, TV Tokyo Corporation and Nihon Ad Systems, Inc.) the courts apparently haven’t reached a final decision just yet. The popular anime property has been wavering back and forth between owners, and NAS recently tried to take full control, once and for all. But the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York has agreed with 4Kids, that the American company will control the latest spinoff series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, for production and marketing. At least for now, as the court also set up a schedule for future rounds in the legal duel. Between June and August, the discussion will focus on whether 4Kids denied sending funds to NAS, and whether Yu-Gi-Oh! was properly separated from 4Kids. What does this mean? Well, as of now, Yu-Gi-Oh! is still a 4Kids property, and its likely we’ll see Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL on ToonZai this fall. But how much this process has damaged the brand and franchise has yet to be seen.
