NEWS!!!!!!4Kids drops One Piece!!!!!!

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. ^_^

Re: NEWS!!!!!!4Kids drops One Piece!!!!!!

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.

EDIT:
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.

Finally.

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.

Re: (Dub) 4Kids OFFICIALLY Cancels One Piece Production

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.

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.

Re: (Dub) 4Kids OFFICIALLY Cancels One Piece Production

I would like that too. The opening song was wack and also Sanji sounded like Zoro for some reason.

Re: (Dub) 4Kids OFFICIALLY Cancels One Piece Production

Let me add this bit in.......for those who are new to this......

When the article says "104 episodes", it is not episodes 1 to 104 of the series. It is actually a insanely spliced 104 episodes, with certain episodes either being merged into a single episode, or just plain skipped altogether like the Apis arc and the Little Garden arc (despite the fact that 4Kids did not remove Mr. 3 from his brief stint in the Arabasta arc, and made it seem like they had show Little Garden with his dialogue with Crocodile and Baroque Works members)......among other senseless edits and crap.

Example:
--Original version: Crocodile gets defeated in episode 126
--Dub version: Crocodile's defeat is episode 94

Re: (Dub) 4Kids OFFICIALLY Cancels One Piece Production

So the dub version used to be kind of longer?

No, the original is longer.
For unknown reasons, 4Kids skipped and spliced episodes at random parts in the series to shorten the series, yet when continuity errors (such as Mr. 3 appearing in Arabasta defending his actions in Little Garden in the dub when his whole arc was skipped over) appeared, 4Kids did not edit them out and kept them in, thinking viewers would be idiots and not notice.

Then there are other edits, such as Sanji's cigarette becoming a lollipop, but edited poorly (Dub Sanji would hold his "lollipop" upside down--with the candy part resting on his thumb.) See below:


This was one of the biggest edits that infuriated One Piece fans......mainly for how obvious of an edit it is.......

There his nothing wrong with naruto dub, it's very good compare to One Piece.

I must say this his an early Christmas present, finally the horror that his one piece dub his dead. Santa Claus must have gotten my wish list.
