Had to be 4kids. One of the very few dubbing companies that I would bash and not defend. Was hoping OP would at least go to Toonami instead of the FoxBox. I would have been fine if it did go to Toonami. At least Funi said they would release uncut versions of 4kids shows.

This can't be true, just can't. One of my favorite shows.

Why pine for Ippo? Ippo didn't get licensed by stupid 4kids. Ippo is getting a pretty good release on DVD from Geneon.

The names will probably stay the same, as 4Kids will probably use "Shonen Jump's One Piece"... of course, Manta's name got changed too...

This is truely a sad day, though.

What about Nakama? They will use it in every sentence. We are going to Alabasta, my friend Sanji :/

You guys are stressing to much. Only animesuki takes licenses seriously. Alot of animes (like full metal alchemist and samurai champloo) that are licensed are still being subbed, and accessable via bittorrent. All you have to know is which website to find the torrents.

*I didn't say anything I swear*

The fact that Funi will release uncut DVDs of 4kids shows is the only thing keeping me from hitting the bottom right now.
At least we'll get to see mass merchandising! One Piece b-day parties and Usopp shirts and Zoro sneakers!

I just hope that Bandai gets the toy license and not Mattel.

Sanji and Smoker with toothpicks.

As quoted by Zac-san from ANN, "I'm wailing about 4Kids getting this series, since I do love it so, but I hold out hope that an uncut version will find its way here a'la Card Captor Sakura.

Otherwise I shall join Roof and Sunkist on board the Goling Melly."

Some of your family are not by any chance executives at 4kids are they?

Alas.

I'll be ignoring my morals again then.

No doubt they'll completely corrupt it. Blah.


Out of curiosity (as I live in England), does most anime that gets licensed appear on television channels that most people have access to or are they quite often obscure cable channels?

Why don't you guys whine like this for other series, like Mermaid Melody or Puchi Puri Yuuchi. Tokyo Mew Mew was also licensed by 4Kids and will be shown on FoxBox but I didn't really see anyone whine about that. Every anime series is equal, just like One Piece is equal to Tokyo Mew Mew. True anime fans don't just watch one series and then think it's the best one out there.

Not everybody is going to cry about shows they might have never seen be licensed.
I'm sure no anime fans feel good that 4Kids licenses anything, especially when it's one of there favorites.

Ugh, damn 4Kids. On it's way to the FoxBox and the next stop for kiddies bored of Yugi and his friends.
damn

4Kids!!?? May the Lord have mercy on us all!! I am not a fan of One Piece at all, but I would have taken a glance at it if it were licensed. I thought Funimation would pick it up, but that doesn't matter anymore. Now that 4kids has it, there's no way in hell that I'll watch it.

I woke up my roomate with my cursing.. so you can guess how pissed I am about this. This is just the worst company to get it. There was talk of a huge bidding war over One Piece, so I souldn't be surpised the big company with all the money from cash cows like Yu-Gi-Oh would win.

I was hoping for Funmation from the start because I really like them. From experiences at cons, they seem like a really good compnay dedicated to pleasing fans. They also gave us the impression that they really like One Piece. My friend who got us all into One Piece and I ran into one of the Funmation guys at a con. He actully came to us to ask what shows we liked and such. We mentioned One Piece and his eyes lit up. He said there was nothing offital but there was an interest and you could tell he liked the series himself. I have never even seen 4kids at a con and heard nothing but bad things about them and they seem to be a company distant from fans.

My greatest concern is the dub. I like dubs. If they censor it I sure hope they have uncut versions, but if the dub is bland, then there's nothign you can do. I can only hope they might use the same studios that Funmation has used lately because I have enjoyed their work. I just wnat a good dub.

I was hoping cartoon network would get this and it would end up on like Toonami or even just later at night. It may be cartoony, but it's got a fair share of drama too. Face it, One Piece is now a saturday morning cartoon on Fox. I think it derserved better than that.

Now someone in another forum mentioned Shaman King being half decent. I admit I haven't watched it. I hope that's it is a sign that One Piece may get a decent treatment, but I can't help but think the worst or at least just bad. This just isn't calculating out to a good thing in my head. I think One Piece derserved a better comany than this rather than just the richest and possibly most cheap one.

I don't think they'll use comrade... Americans can still be sensitive about Communism and the association the word "comrade" has with it.

I'm getting cool down now. I just hope that Funi will do the Dvd release.

You can't jump to conclusion that everyone that was piss off about OP being licensed by 4kids, think OP is the best shit out there. You can't assume that we only watch One Piece. BTW quite a bad ex., did you cry, write letters, donate money, makes phone calls, go to funeral, etc... everytime you heard about someone death that is not related to you AT ALLL. I guess, you do since everything seem to be equal for you. You must be very busy. I don't how you find time to watch anime.

Why don't you try typing in Naruto's forum about true anime fan???
