FUNimation simulcasts One Piece, and I...


FUNimation should now be called, OMG you are the best company in the world forever times one million-imation, for doing the impossible, making this otaku’s dream come true. FUNimation announces today that they will be doing a same day simulcast of the anime One Piece. One hour after airing in Japan, the good people of FUNimation will stream it free, with professionally produced subtitles on their official website, One Piece Official. This epic endeavor will begin Saturday May 30th at 9 pm.

Each episode will be rolled out for a newer one, so you can't watch them all at once. However, beginning Thursday, May 14th, FUNimation will beginning streaming episodes of the Sabaody Archipelago story arc, which began back in episode 391 as well. Kanji Kazahaya, the director of Toei Animation states:

"With digital technology drastically changing the media environment surrounding broadcasts, we've gained the understanding and cooperation of Shueisha, the publisher of the original manga, and Fuji Television, which broadcasts the show in Japan, the primary target audience. With help from FUNimation, our One Piece partner in North America, we've managed to make a One Piece simulcast a reality. With this simulcast, we'll be able to deliver a version of One Piece with much "fresher" excitement and greatness than ever before to even more viewers in the United States than ever before. It's incredibly exciting."

I am very excited, Mr. Kazahaya. For those of you watching One Piece, please support FUNimation by watching it live. If you don’t watch One Piece, then what are you waiting for? You can’t pass up the greatest story of our lifetime!
