Comic-Con 2011: One Piece Dub to Continue, Negotiations Underway!

Pop Culture News News MADMAN Funimation Comic Con 2011

During their Comic-Con 2011 Panel along side many other great announcements, Funimation after building the anticipation the entire panel, made the announcement fans have been waiting for for months now. They are currently in negotiations for the rights to more episodes to dub of One Piece.

As previously stated dubbing One Piece is a touchy subject for Toei Animation, understandably after the 4Kids debacle. It has been stated many times that it is both difficult and expensive to get the rights to dub One Piece and thus why it has taken this long for any news. But it has finally been confirmed, that yes negotiations are underway and yes One Piece will continue being dubbed!

      I’m certain that they will get the rights. By this time next year, I imagine we will be well and truly into the Water 7 arc.

  • Oblivionknight

    I wonder if they will use new voice actors since the last batch of dubs.

    • Luke Halliday

      It is the same voice actors 🙂

      They will be casting for new characters such as Franky and CP9.

      • MugiwaraFan

        I thought they already had Patrick Seitz as the voice actor of Franky since he voiced him in One Piece Unlimited Adventure?

        • Luke Halliday

          I’m unsure whether he will reprise his role. All to be confirmed in time MugiwaraFan 🙂
