While subbing them wouldn't be cheap, I don't think that it would be that expensive either. Subbing in general is much less expensive than dubbing and if they only subbed the episodes that 4Kids didn't dub like 4Kids was apparently planning to do a few years ago, it would probably be even cheaper than if they went for the whole series. By doing so, they could get some money off of the episodes, instead of doing nothing with them, and not have to spent as much money if they went for the whole series. If the revenue they got from those subs was good enough, then they could look into possibly subbing the rest of the series afterwards. If they're still willing the sub 5D's, which isn't really marketing relevant anymore either and they did confirm awhile ago that the rest of the series will be subbed, then I don't see the issue in getting GX subbed, especially when the legal issues most likely aren't making it difficult like they are for DM.Originally Posted by PokemonTVDub
I understand that these series are advertisements for the TCG, but going back to work on subs for older series online isn't really impossible, or at least I don't think it is. If they didn't want to spend the time, money and energy on subbing a series that isn't promoting more recent cards, they wouldn't be finishing 5D's. They would just focus all of their attention on subbing Zexal and Arc-V and leave 5D's as it is. Going back to dub either GX or 5D's is definitely not going to happen due to how expensive dubbing is, but going back to sub them is certainly more of a possibility. Admittedly, I don't think that GX subs are a sure fire thing. I think that legal subs for Arc-V are more of a guarantee at this point, but I don't really see GX being subbed as an impossibility either. They've been working on International streaming and subbed episodes for awhile and said on their Facebook page that they'd have more news about that soon, so perhaps GX news can come out of that. If they've been working on all of the legal trouble to get International streaming going, then they could also be trying to work out getting at least GX or even DM subbed. It's probably more likely that it will be Arc-V being subbed, but since it would be cheaper to sub a season compared to a whole series right off the bat, I don't think the idea of subbing GX is really that impossible. It should be easier to manage than DM at least.
