MangaUK Confirms Acquistion of Original Yu-Gi-Oh! TV Series


Despite it being discovered over a week ago Manga Entertainment UK have finally confirmed that they have acquired the UK distribution rights for the complete original series of Yu-Gi-Oh!; with the first season being released on DVD next month.

A post on the official MangaUK facebook page earlier today confirmed what we already knew, but incase you missed it then here is the official announcement:

We’ve decided to bring you one of our announcements for MCM Expo London Comic Con early, so here it is…

We’ll be releasing Yu-Gi-Oh! on DVD starting with Season 1 on 17th November! (This is the English broadcast version of the original series we’re releasing.) You can pre-order this today at Amazon UK here:

Here’s a picture of the banner you’ll see in hanging from the ceiling at MCM Comic Con this weekend by stand.

Pre-order your copy today!

P.S. We know some of you eagle eyed people may have spotted this already, but this is our official confirmation! ^JG

It’s expected that during the Anime Industry Panel, which takes place on Sunday at 3pm at the London MCM Comic Con, that MangaUK will reveal more details about this particular release – but we expect that the it will remain the same as those released within America earlier this year.; whereby the series was seperated into ‘season’ collections and that it only featured the 4Kids English Dub (as an Uncut English Dub does not exist).

Of course while one license has been ‘let out of the bag’ early we can expect that further announcements will be made on the panel – so what are you hoping to see being announced? Let us know!
