My name is William and I'm from Holland. Last year I became a One Piece fan, after I read the first 2 volumes of the manga. After that I heard that a German channel was going to air One Piece. I got really excited, so I decided to buy a sattelite dish, so I could watch the show. The show was great. It was really funny and I loved all the characters that were introduced. Than I read an awful thing on the net. 4Kid$ was going to buy the rights to One Piece so they could air it on the WB network. I was shocked. I mean the show is not really violent, but 4Kid$ just couldn't handle it, that's for sure. Then somewhere in november I started to hear the rumors, how they were editing the whole show into one piece of crap. Let me tell you something about the German version. They made their own opening song, which in my opinion is better than the Japanese. They keep the original names, except for some small changes:
-Monkey D. Ruffy
They have tiny edits, but you hardly notice it. The background music is still there. The pirates kill, drink and smoke, and no episodes are skipped. Oh yeah, and every voice suits the character really well. I thought Buggy had a really cool voice.
Are there other countries that air One Piece? If yes, did they edit the show in one way or another?
