4Kids: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Current Status: Scheduled for Sunday from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM in Panels Room 4

The TL;DR Version:
Love 'em or hate 'em, 4Kids changed the Western anime community 4ever. Join us as we look back on their legacy - from the good to the cringe-inducing.

The Elevator Pitch:
4Kids Entertainment. Merely mentioning its name is enough to send a shiver down localization purists' spines and drive One Piece fans into a fit of rage. But what did this infamous company do to receive such scorn? More importantly, do they even deserve it? In this panel, we'll examine 4Kids' history of dubbing and licensing, highlighting both their contributions to popularizing anime and their more "questionable" decisions. Audience members will also get to participate in the discussion.


Would love to see this panel! Especially if there's a part about the Yu-Gi-Oh! dub and censoring <3
Attendee since 2009

One day I'll cosplay again


If I'm selected to host this panel, Yu-Gi-Oh! will definitely be included!
