A terrible dubbing company. That's just the short definition!
They take control of great Anime's, and censor every thing a Anime is meant for! Blood, Violence, Cursing, even some jokes, they sometimes shrink the sizes of breast, like Akiza from Yu-Gi-Oh 5ds! Since I said that, it censored so much! It even gave corny lines to the main characters!
Yugi/Atem- Heart of The Cards!
Joey/Jonouchi: Where's the heart in those cards Yuug?
Jaden/Judai- Get your game on!
Jesse/Johan- Wh... what?
Yusei- Let's rev it up!
4Kids is like a disease, it spreads, and spreads to anything it touches. It messed up Sonic X, One Piece, (Funimation did their own dub to it thank god!) Shaman King, Pokemon, all the Yu-Gi-Oh Series, Tokyo Mew Mew, Dragonball Series, and a few others. We should all be thankful it didn't get other good Anime's, like Bleach, Naruto, Hunter X Hunter, Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note any many more!
Guy1: Hey! Did you see this weeks episode of Sonic X?
Guy2:...What...? Oh yeah! I saw it subbed! It was awesome!!!
Guy1: What's subbed?
Guy2: Huh? You know, to the Anime Sonic X.
Guy1: What's a Anime?
Guy2: *sighs* Made from Japanese, everything is better! 4Kids censor everything...
*watches a episode of Sonic X is Japanese*
The worst anime liscensing/dubbing firm in the world. They really started the kiddie-anime boom in the U.S. with pokemon, which made them billionares.more...
Later on, they liscensed Yugioh and turned it into a hack-fest that made the Card Captor dub look good. The changed nearly everyone's names, altered the main storyline, censored any deaths in the show (either saying the dead charecter went to "The shadow Relm" or "Mysterisouly dissapeared"), added in this "Heart of the Cards" shit (and made nearly everything the charectars say mention the heart of the cards), replaced the ENTIRE soundtrack with shitty Saturday-morning cartoon music, and worst of all, mutaliated the dialog and gave the series THE WORST voice cast ever. And they didnt even release uncut DVDs... In the end, this series made them millionares.
4kids ended up buying fox kids, changed the name to fox boc, removed most of the shows, and added in a few crappy cartoons like the new TMNT and "The Cramp Twinds". They also bought a few new animes (Sonic X, Shaman King, Ultimate muscle, and Kirby: Right Back at Ya) to release on the fox box. While none of them were quite as bad as yugioh, they still sucked horribly. Shaman King had most of its dialog TOTALLY rewitten and its main charecter (yoh) changed from a carefree guy to a total asshole. Sonic X got a shitty dub cast. Ultimate muscle and Kirby...sucked from the begining. All of these animes had thier soundtracks replaced (they even recyled tracks. Sonic X's ne...
4kids ruined anime
An anime company that would do a lot better with anime if someone stuck flaming bluejays up there anus and into the're large intestine.
Pet Store Guy: How can I help you
Anime Guy : yes I need a large amount of flaming bluejays.
Pet Store Guy: ....
Anime Guy: It's for 4Kids
Pet Store Guy:Oh,Okay cash or charge
1.An American company that seems to be obsessed with nothing other than taking good anime and butchering them into kid shows.For example,editing out blood,violence,death and other things that they think will corrupt our nation's children.This company is said to have entire armies of soccer moms waiting to send tons of hate-mail and other forms of bitching to corporations who try and compete against them.
4Kids will be the downfall of all freedom what-so-ever.
A retarded voice casting and dubbing studio, hell bent on ahnialating all trace of seriousness in any anime they touch, adding stupid dialogue, changing characters and story, censoring things for no reason(or not very good reasons) and editing things gratuitously, also believing women are not meant ot have breasts.
Also do not pay attention, and make many blunders.
"Nooo! My Celtic Gaurdian!"

(Celtic Gaurdian was Yugi's monster, not Joey's)
"SHIT MUSICAL MONTAGE"
~4Kids super wanker bastards
A dubbing company that changes everything in a lot of anime purely for profit.
They change the shows into "Kiddie" shows for younger children are more likely to go for the lame toys they dish out.
Anime was never meant for kids in the first place. It's directed for the Young Adults who are to old for the real kid cartoons (Not the classics, like looney toons :P)
"New crappy toys from our shows! Spend your parents money today while filling ours! We spend $.05 on the plastic to make it but we're selling it to you for $5!
A shitty-ass company who bastardizes good anime.They have bastardized my favorite manga, Shaman King, and changed every single name to names that you would call your pet(take mortimer for instance)!And I have recently found out that they are about to bastardize yet ANOTHER one of my favorite mangas, Naruto. Thank god they havent gotten to Bleach or Hunter X Hunter yet(my other 2 fav mangas)! Seriously, who's with me to start an angry mob!!!

Mortimer:Hey, Yoh, Have you seen 'lenny'?
