    4K is starting to showcase VRAINS at licensing shows. I'd guess that episode delivery would start in Spring/Summer 2018. Barring a change in strategy, first markets will probably once again be Australia or Canada.

    Yeah, that sounds about right to me as well. The earliest I could expect a Vrains dub would be sometime next year. The dub in most countries is over a year behind the Japanese version and Australia or Canada would probably air the dub first. I don't know when the show will air in the U.S. though. While I don't care about Vrains nearly as much as I do about Arc V, putting that series on Nicktoons would be really bad for that series too. As much as Konami and 4K Media may not like it, if they can't get the series on TV besides on Nicktoons, they're better off making the series an online exclusive. At least premieres would be more consistent.

    It would be nice if they didn't wait to dub it until after they finished dubbing Arc-V; these shows would go faster if they dubbed both simultaneously.

    I'm actually kind of surprised that they haven't done that to be honest. It made sense why 4Kids couldn't work on two series at the same time by a certain point. They were having quite a bit of financial trouble near the end of GX and even more when they were working on 5D's. The only time they were able to dub two shows at once was with DM and GX, but DM was still popular and they were in a better financial position at that point too. Still, I don't think that should be an issue for 4K Media. Granted, I don't know well they're doing financially, but I assume that they're doing well enough or at least they aren't in the same kind of financial struggle that 4Kids was during their last few years. Maybe they still lack the resources to dub two series at once despite possibly being in a better financial position. They had to finish Zexal before dubbing Arc V, which is why that dub didn't start airing in other countries until a good year after it premiered in Japan, and it looks like the same thing is happening with Vrains too.

    At least they have the series legally subbed. I still wish that they had started a simlucast for Arc V instead for many reasons, but despite my feelings towards Vrains, I'm glad that it has legal subs for a few reasons too. It's just kind of rough for fans of the dub though.

    That wouldn't really be a good decision for both shows.

    I can see them being dropped from Nicktoons soon enough, actually. In fact, even Harvey Beaks only airs during graveyard hours on that channel now.

    Seeing that happening is just only a pipe dream.

    Besides, no new Canadian shows get picked up by any US network anymore. The last new show from Canada that aired in the US AFAIK is Fangbone.

    Nick used to air Rank the Prank, don't know if that was before or after Fangbone, though.

    As always even if they do pick up a Canadian show, never expect divine treatment, it is always going to be "now you see me, now you don't".

    Here it got promoted when it premiered on our feed of Nickelodeon and within a couple of months moved to late night slots.

    NVM, I just remembered some recent Canadian cartoons that premiered here. Hotel Transylvania the Series and Mysticons, both are made by Nelvana, and air on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon respectively.

    Original Avatar gets the axe, meaning no more old shows left on Nicktoons

    Sucks to see the last (in this day and age) "classic" nicktoon booted off the network. If anyone is interested they still surprisingly have the Avatar site and MANY full episodes up on Nick.com. I know it's more interesting to see these shows still on air though.

    I'd give it a few weeks for another Nicktoon to air again.
