Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it has added the fourth season of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime series to its catalog. Crunchyroll is offering the series in its original Japanese audio with English subtitles. It is available for Crunchyroll users worldwide except for Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Laos, Macao, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Samoa (Western), Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Italy, San Marino and the Vatican City.
Crunchyroll describes the series:
Set several years after the previous Yu-Gi-Oh! series, GX follows a new generation of duelists at the prestigious Duel Academy—a highly competitive boarding school where pencils and books have been replaced by Duel Disks and monster cards! Still, it's not just about making the grade for these up and coming students – it's about becoming the next King of Games!
The series premiered in 2004. Cartoon Network began airing the series in 2005, followed by 4Kids TV in 2007, both dubbed in English. Crunchyroll added the anime's first season in August 2015, and also offers its English-dubbed version.
Crunchyroll will stream the series this fall. The anime will premiere in Japan in October.
The original Nanbaka manga by Shō Futamata centers around four prisoners: Jūgo, a man who attempted to break out of prison and ended up extending his jail time; Uno, a man who likes to gamble with women; Rokku, a man who likes to get into fights; and Niko, a man who likes anime. Along with their warden Hajime, the high-tension action comedy story unfolds.
Shinji Takamatsu (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, School Rumble, Gintama) is directing the anime, with scripts by Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation). Futamata launched the manga on the Comico app in 2013. The second compiled book volume shipped in Japan on May 12. Crunchyroll digitally published the first volume of the manga in English last December as part of a collaboration with Comico, and added the second volume earlier this month.
