Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V season 3 on Teletoon, season 1 on Télétoon

The third and final season of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is set to hit Teletoon. TV listing services TV Passport and Zap2it, as well as the channel’s own schedule, indicate episode 100 will air on Saturday, July 22nd at 1PM EST. Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V usually premieres on Teletoon on Fridays, but episode 51, “Kings vs. Dragons” is slated to air on the 21st.

As of this writing, none of the schedules are listing a title for episode 100. However, the currently airing Italian dub calls it, “Un Benvenuto Bellicoso”, which I’m translating as a “A Rough Welcoming.” I’ll update this post once an official title goes live. Teletoon’s schedule lists episode 100 as, “A Warlike Welcome.” 101 is listed as “Realm of the Cipher Dragon” and 102 as “Rush to Revenge.”

I’m doing that because Teletoon is once again hosting English premieres. Well, until Australia gets season 3 and runs it five days a week and eclipses us in a month. What about the United States? Arc-V’s broadcast there has derailed to the point of being functionally useless. Nicktoons still hasn’t aired all of the first season, though “new” episodes will allegedly run in the fall. Maybe. Possibly. One day. Americans interested in officially supporting the dub are better off with the home video releases, which are ahead of the Nicktoons run.

The first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is coming to Télétoon in Quebec. TV Passport, Zap2it and the channel’s schedule list the show as debuting on July 22nd at 1PM EST. This appears to be the first time a Yu-Gi-Oh! series has ever aired on TV in French Canada, despite Imavision putting out local home video product for the first localized series and GX and Warner Brothers dubbing Pyramid of Light in Quebec.

The French version of Arc-V, which was recorded in Morocco by Plug-in, originally debuted on Gulli in France on April 13, 2015.

UPDATE (7/16/2017): Alex on Facebook has informed me that the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters aired on Télévision Quatre-Saisons/TQS (now known as V) between August 2002 and May 2003. My apologies. I guess that makes Arc-V the first series in the franchise to air there in nearly 15 years.

As Yuya and friends begin their final journey (at least in English Canada), it’s hard not to look ahead to the next series. Canada is one of a small handful of countries not taking part in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS’ simulcast on Crunchyroll. I assume that’s because 4K Media doesn’t want to hurt any broadcast potential, but with another 49 episodes of Arc-V in the tank, are they really telling Canadian fans to hold tight for a year? What about the TCG? The first set with VRAINS cards is set to hit the shelves next month in North America…

Thanks, Greg.

    That really sucks for USA Yugioh fans, but since they get Toonami it really doesn’t matter.
