About “4Kids Global License” column: When 4Kids Entertainment purchased the license for the Shaman King anime, they received a “Global License” which allowed for their adaptation and branding of the series across multiple countries and languages. Within each adaptation there may be some regional differences, however many of the edits (such as names, graphical changes, logos) were used that didn’t match the original Japanese version.
