One Piece

Why is One Piece still listed as being Licenced by Funimation? Funimation Doesn't have it. And AFAK the Licenseing of it is still in limbo. So We can Still Seed it.
And Before you ask, I have a friend who works at Funimation. They told Me Funi dosen't have it.
And Before you Ask Again. No I will not give the persons name. I don't wish to get them into trouble.

Well, I really don't see any reason to take it off as they did announce it last year (or early this year). Until FUNimation officially announces they don't have it, it stays unlisted

Funimation has started dubbing One Piece. So they do have it, they just announced it waaaaaaaaay too early.

Although I indeed don't really have heard anything from
Funimation themselves about having the license for One
Piece, the word does seem to be out that it's already being
dubbed. That would be a give-away to it being licensed.

And it wouldn't be that surprising really... it's licensed in
several European countries already.

If you still continue to download "Pirate" fansubs (pun intended)
though I can understand -- I must admit I'm still downloading
One Piece fansubs as well. BUT... there is a difference between
my personal choice and site policy.

I've also been dloading the fansubs, but I'll still be picking up the DVD release when it becomes available.

Points why:
- next ep previews will be there (hopefully) =p
- the fansubbers recently have decided to just use "stock clean" OP/ED sequences now to save themselves time encoding... bleah. I want original credit filled op/ed sequences for their proper episodes.
- don't have to fiddle with stupid codecs (like when they recently decided to change something and suddenly a lot of people couldn't play the file anymore.)

I'm another one who is downloading One Piece. I am actually very impatient for the DVDs to be released because I want to buy them.

I like to watch anime I like on the TV and not the computer. And hopefully the DVDs will offer some nice extras. Not to mention the ENTIRE episode. The fansub eps I have don't include the closing credits and I find that very annoying. No fansubber should be leaving out the credits. They are ~important~.

hhaha "pirate" fansubs. Good one.

yes i dl it too, and if i had money to spare id buy the dvds also.
I heard they're dubbing it and i even read an online journal? from a person who was auditioning to be Luffy or Zoro's voice. Its gonna be odd since Luffy is played by a grl in japan.

the "pirate" subbers do a really good job tho. They're the best ive seen.

EDIT: Kid ovbiously does not get it from these subbers. Sorry id love to, but against rules to give links for these

hate to break it to you, but there's poop-all chance of getting Next Episode preveiws, or atleast, not in Japanese. The point being that it's a Toei show, and much like Dragonball, Sailor Moon, and Saint Seiya( FUNi, ADV, Geneon/Pioneer) Toei want to avoid their Japanese market reverse importing from the US

I'm telling you Funimation Does not have One Piece. They Did dub a pilot episode. But the Contract was yanked at the last minute because Toei didn't want Funimation to have All their good Shows. Since they wanted Detective Conan Toei took away One Piece. Think, Funiomatin isn't going to announce that they lost a title because they wouldn't want the competition to pick it up just in case Toei decides to change their mind.
Trust me, My Sources are VERY reliable.
And unless another company has picked it up, One Piece is still on the market.
and for your info I have already found a bit torrent Seed for the series so i don't really need Animesuki for that. I am Just setting the facts straight.

Trust me, if FUNimation didn't have One Piece, then Viz/Bandai/ADV/Tpop etc would know about it. It's called being in an industry. Its not like spies from rival companies come and sit in audiences at announcements and nit pick each and every single word.

Sure, your sources might be Gen Fukunaga himself. It doesn't matter. They haven't told anyone they've retracted it, and you haven't given any backing on what you've said. It's like me saying "Well hey, I know a guy who works at ADV and they said they have Kodacha. Take it off. Oh and I cant tell you the guys name but he knows stuff! His Mom makes me brownies and discusses the finer points in life. He's got a kid too, it likes cows etc blah blah blah"

So stop being so adamant. It's not going to get reseeded.

At otakon, funi was asked if they had it or sold it, they replied "no comment". Pioneer was asked if they had bought it off funi, they replied "no comment". Therefore, it sounds like somebody in the industry has it...

What the hell? Why would they care? And how do you define "good"? And although irrelevent, I'd like to say your use of caps is irritating.

Why should we trust you when you're not willing to reveal your sources? You're not engendering any trust here, bub. You gotta give some to get some. Hey man, I know someone at Funimation too, man, and they said they got One Piece man, and they've already started dubbing it man... but I can't say who they are man... See? The last statements I made were utter bullshit. No one's gonna believe some guy on a forum unless they got the creds to back them up.

Because he thinks that we shouldn't list it as licensed. It isn't about getting ahold of downloads for him. It's no great trick to download One Piece. The group that does it keeps their episodes pretty well seeded. This isn't about his personal gain, so lay off that.

This is purely a moral crusade for him. He believes that One Piece hasn't been licensed, so he is trying to convince us that a mistake has been made.

Unfortunately he doesn't have any evidence or any sources that he feels free to name, so it is pretty unlikely that GHDPro will change his mind.

Remus Lupin: Please come back when you've got evidence. Find a press release or at least give us your friend's name. Find someone at Funimation that is willing to go on the record saying that they don't have the show. If you can do something like this, then please return and tell us. Otherwise, we have to believe Funimation's public press release that they have licensed One Piece. Even if they were flat-out lying we would have no choice except to believe them. Unless some actual evidence to the contrary can be presented on the Record.

Damn! That sounds pretty convincing, especially coming from an admin. Now I might get to see if this series lives up to the hype!
