An anime dubbing company that obviously hates this generation, making shows such as Yugioh to be looked down upon in the U.S. They're the kind of people that could make a hentai into a show about the power of friendship or some bullshit. One of the main reasons anime has kinda died in the U.S. I'd rather watch a whole year's worth of Bleach filler.

Examples of ruined anime:

One Piece: "YA YO YA YO! DREAMIN! Don't give it up Luffy! DREAMIN! ..."

Yugioh: Believe in the heart of the cards!
4kids: Hey look! It's a popular anime that's critically acclaimed in Japan. Let's take all the good parts and take it out! Even the voice actors hate dubbing this show, but we just keep fucking them with a 20-inch dild- I mean we politely ask them to keep working on the dub.

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.

2.See Anti-Christ.
4Kids will be the downfall of all freedom what-so-ever.

A mediocre dubbing company known for making a mess of otherwise good anime shows (ex.; One-Piece,Tokyo Mew-Mew).And did a rather awful rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner"(thank the gods they didn't do O Canada).And,Most recently,Turning the FOX network's Saturday mornings into an infomercial-wasteland.Do not be surprised if,come September,the same thing happens to the CW(formerly WB & UPN) network's Saturday mornings!

EvilDemons from the Television Underworld which grab animes down to their lair to be gruesomely slaughtered. It's a dreadful scene...*sniff* We're all cheering Naruto on to get away from this great evil, but can the show evade a grisly maim just like its friends?
Anime: La la la leh la...*strolling happily* *gets dragged down by 4Kids to be brutally murdered* AIEEEEEEE!!!

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 US company that makes anime shows more kid-friendly. They ruined anime by changing the soundtracks, giving the characters silly voices (some are good though), and adding puns.

Shows like Sonic X, Yugioh, One Piece and Pokemon are some examples.

The company deserves to be buried deep under the earth.
Person A: Hi B. Whatcha doing?

Person B: Hi A. I'm watching Pokemon. And guess what? The songs rock! I just love it! 4Kids rulesss!

Person A: I better split! This is getting scary!

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.

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 new soundtrack is IDENTICLE to shaman king, except for the opening music).

They recently liscensed Tokyo Mew Mew (which looks to me alot like sailor moon), and according to Al Khan, the evil bastard CEO of 4kids, they are planning to edit it tremendsouly (Hell, the are releaseing it under the name HOLLYWOOD Mew Mew...). They also seem to be going after the uber-popular anime "Naruto". With the shitload of money that 4kids has gained from YGO, i sympithize with naruto fans.
4kids is the reason that anime is so widely hated in the U.S.
They must be stopped before they get thier hands on a truly good anime.
