I hope Funimation or Viz pick the property up and redub it. That would be AWESOME.

As for me i'm glad that 4kids dropped the rights, now hopefully someother company [looks at ViZ] can pick it up and get new Nakama for us pirates. And once and for all we can admit that One Piece is better than Naruto. ^_^
4Kids Cancels One Piece Production (2006-12-06 11:06:38)
4Kids Marketing Director Roz Nowicki has confirmed that the company will not adapt additional episodes of One Piece. 4Kids has dubbed 104 episodes of the series into English, 78 of which have aired in the United States. Thanks, Daikun, Starks, and Mark Barbour. Source: Toon Zone [ discuss (74 posts) ]
subalashiii. i am soo glad. i cant help jumping.
The anime was almost destroyed. Almost destroyed-- i will like to those guys
What a relief !!!
This is awesome news. What more could we ask for.
Such a great Relief. They almost killed the series-- tsk!!!
yea, seriously, when I see the news on the website, I was estatic, now they can hopefully run an unedited version somewhere. ^_^ But since most of us are pirates im guessing we have all 288 episodes in our Hard drive
i would have loved it if it was even on AdultSwim at night-- outside of kids eyes and it wasnt soo heavily edited.
Anybody else that takes it up better not do the same thing. Good Riddance.
there is a similar thread here: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=11689.0
maybe you should ask one of the mods to merge the two threads.
Moved and merged ~ bax
Thank fucking Christ.
I hope 4kids crumbles.
Now if only there's a company who'll buy the One Piece license off of 4kids and make a real dub and an uncut Japanese version with subtitles. I would buy that.
Yeah, I hope so too because they mad One Piece look too childish. And I also realized that Sanji had Zoro's voice.Originally Posted by Kaizoku-Syn

I...................don't know what to say except............THANK YOU GOD!!!!!
are you serious that's great news
but really 4kids has already damaged One PIece bad enough
I mean suburban house moms are going flip their fucking heads off, if someone else dubs One PIece and they see the real version ar at least the somewhat real version
That's where another problem comes into play.
Toei (company who produces One Piece in Japan) could do what they did with the Sailor Moon series and just lock up One Piece and never re-license it.
We will have to wait and see what happens.
yup it's good but kinda bad at the same time
Sweet. Now if i could only forget the terrible voice work and brutal editing. Here's to hoping the same thing will happen to Naruto.
I would rather One Piece wasn't re-licensed if they are just going to reduce it to what 4-kids made it. It's a good series it deserves better.Originally Posted by goofy_man
Well yeah, they had to do it because it was way too childish.
