One of the many animes dubbed by [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]. The Spanish and Latin Americans also got a translation, and had the Japanese original dubbed in Spanish with only a bit of CulturalTranslation and pretty decent casts. Both the [=4Kids=] dub and a local language dub were shown in the Philippines, leading to inevitable comparisons and some confusion.

One Its anime adaptation, which spans 64 episodes aired from July 4, 2001 to September 25, 2002, was one of the many animes series dubbed into English by [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]].

** Speaking of Manta...yeah, don't hurt him or any of Yoh's other friends. Yoh will ''flip his shit.''

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the American release of the manga, Ponchi's... gigantic weaponized testicles are censored. In one scene, where he basically immobilizes Manta by [[NauseaFuel wrapping him up with them]], it's edited to look like some sort of thick hairy Seran wrap coating, and references are made to Ponchi's ''tail'' instead. A much huger variant of the same attack is used later on in the story; there, it's referred to as a [[UnusualEuphemism "Ghost Bubble"]]. However, the editing in both senes is slight enough that anyone paying attention will figure out what's ''really'' going on.

* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: Non-romantic example - Yoh attempts this on Manta after his first fight against Faust [[spoiler: led to poor Manta being vivisected alive and Yoh losing the first round of the Shaman Fight]]. It doesn't work.

Added DiffLines:

** The Buddhist faction gets mentioned near the start of the tournament proper as one of the 3 major factions, the other two being Hao's faction and the X-Laws. They don't actually do anything on screen until nearly 2/3rds through the story.

* CerebusSyndrome: Initially a SliceOfLife ghost story, the show changed with the arrival of Tao Ren to become a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Shaman of the Week]] story, then changed again into a TournamentArc which started the tone shifts towards DarkerAndEdgier with the possibility that AnyoneCanDie, with both antagonists and protagonists being given more backstory and exploration.

The story also begins dealing with darker themes like the pointlessness of a CycleOfRevenge and whether humanity deserves to survive.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInTranslation: Chocolove's comedy is primarily puns. But nearly none of the puns translate to English at all, so most of his jokes are completely nonsensical. Which interestingly increases what a bad comedian he is.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Chocolove and (a much more excited and upbeat looking) Hao appear on the chapter art for ch. 27. Hao doesn't properly first appear til chapter 61 and Chocolove doesn't appear until chapter 106, about a third of the way into the story.
This list shows the last 10 events of 206. Show all.
