So where would Konami air the show? Is it still going to air on Toonzai; is it going to some OnDemand channel; what's the deal?
...Wait what are you doing? Are you still reading this? I finished what I had to say, why don't you move on to the next post?

Konami will be working with Saban, so the dubs of Yuugi-Ou! will still air on the block.

Merged.

Anyone have any real details on the deal? I can't seem to find anything specific about "the Dragon Ball agreement terms with Toei Animation and Funimation Productions". I'm assuming this deal would transfer whatever arrangement 4Kids had regarding Dragon Ball, but I didn't think they had anything to do with Dragon Ball. :?

The 4kids dub? Or will it be a new dub? Because if it's a new uncut dub then hot damn. :D
If you have to write a small thesis every time you respond to a post you're not an intellectual, you're just bad at making your point.

The dubs produced by 4Kids. Konami now owns them and it'll be a cold day in Hell when they cough up the money to created an different dub of the previous series'.

As I recall every 4kids Pokemon actor confirmed no such thing ever existed.

Steward Zagnat (Oak) states outright that they couldn't jump to the Pokemon Company's crew due to their 4kids agreements, though he gives no details as to why.

Just like Dragon Ball since Chapter #4.

Watching Toonzai's Kai right now. It still carries the 4Kids logo, no wonder the company cease to exist... yet. KidsCo still has the retribution to air selected Yu-Gi-Oh series even the Dawn of the Duel promo despite 4KAC owns most of the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise operations.

4KAC = 4K Acquisition Corp.
