and slow proxy is slow...
Finally, an official website with streaming video with content available to Canadians! (unlike, for example, NBC) And it's the Funimation One Piece site to boot! This rocks!
Yeah. I expected FUni to do this for the series sooner or later but damn ASAP is good!
Now all that's wanted but not needed is the movies.
hmmm.. seems like a good deal. Here's hoping that FUNI holds up their end of the bargain and stays with the series for the long haul.
But damn is the stream slow. I really hope they can find a way around that
Seems cool, IMO.
seems this is a miracle in some form to the fans

Like I said earlier, the stream is slow is because the new FMA: Brotherhood episode is out today. And you know how many big that series is and stuff.
I, for one, welcome our new (old) Funi overlords.
Brand relaunch USA? Well... brand push.
I love everyone freaking out from other countries. I remember back in the day when all the fansubbers thought that Funi had the show licensed and no one was fansubbing it. (Granted, everyone was on 56k back then and there was only 3 english One Piece fansites, but still...) Now they're all like "NO MAN, like... it's fascist communism! RAWR! BOOO! We're over here, you can't touch us!"
I feel old.
Big day for the U.S. One Piece fandom that I thought wouldn't come so soon.
Well, FUNimation did have the license to One Piece back then and it wasn't just one person reporting it either. At the time back in 2003 or so, they eventually commented saying they never had One Piece, but one of the representatives in the ToonZone "Ask a FUNimation Rep" thread eventually confirmed they did have it, though something happened. I believe this was the year before FUNimation (technically) reaquired One Piece. In anycase, whatever that something is, we'll probably never know and it really doesn't matter now.
So there was good reason for fansubbers not wanting to touch it.
But in anycase. Yeah, the typical attitude of fansubbers has greatly changed since then. Not only them, but I think the anime community in general has as well. Unfortunately, not for the better...
the something was probably 4kids but anyway this brand push has me so exicted. Hopefully FUNi will make the series 10x more strong then the previous attempt.
FINALLY; One Piece getting the treatment it deserves here in the US. Between this and the speed-push of the manga, OP is gonna come back in a big way.
Well, scratch what I said earlier. DownloadHelper can't download the actual episode. But there are still ways to get it, but more technical than I'm willing to bother with.
Also, did you guys here that Viz is jumping to Impel Down arc in Monthly Shonen Jump to accommodate what FUNi is doing? So One Piece is going to be legally up to date in both Anime and Manga to Japan, it seems.
Is a mod going to mirror this into the general Anime forum? O.o
Anyone know if this is on any other website than Funi's? Maybe another site'll be faster. Hopefully. And I think this is just awesome. Too bad VAs need rest or we might've been able to get dubbed episodes. Maybe not . How long does it take to dub an episode? Well, hopefully Funi keeps this up; this is why they're my favorite anime dubbing (and subbing) company. You don't see Viz doing this.
