Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s races to ¡Sorpresa!


Olympusat’s Spanish-language US TV channel ¡Sorpresa! has acquired the broadcast rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s from 4K Media. The anime series debuted on Monday and runs every weekday at 6 PM.

4K describes the show as:

Yu-Gi Oh! 5D’s follows a story many years in the future after the exploits of Yugi Mutou. Domino City, now known as Neo Domino City, has become a futuristic society where dueling has kicked into overdrive combining skill, speed and cutting-edge technology. The new “Riding Duels” are not just about winning or losing, especially for Yusei Fudou, a young duelist whose main desire is to reclaim what is rightly his from an old friend. However, his journey turns into much more than what he and his newfound companions, called “Signers”, would have ever bargained for.

Jesús Piñango, director of content strategy at Olympusat added: “We’re positive that adding Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s to our programming couldn’t have come at a better time as it gives access to one of the most internationally well-known anime franchises to a new generation of Hispanic fans. From the beginning, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s has had a passionate and loyal fan base around the world and we’re proud to present such a successful series to our viewers.”

The second Yu-Gi-Oh! anime spinoff, 5D’s ran for 154 episodes between April 2008 and March 2011. The series was directed by Katsumi Ono and produced by Studio Gallop. 4Kids Entertainment dubbed the first 136 episodes into English for their CW4Kids/Toonzai Saturday morning blocks. The Spanish dub was recorded in Colombia at Provideo S.A. It ran for 52 episodes on ZAZ from 2009.

¡Sorpresa! is currently available on Charter Spectrum, Claro TV, Cox Communications, Frontier Communications, Liberty, Suddenlink and VEMOX.
