(I'm not sure if DBF and Water 7 already were in HD because HD fan recordings only exist since Enies Lobby)
    I'm not exactly too bothered about the wdescreen format, but aren't the JP dvds in the regular 4:3 aspect ratio? I thought Funimation took all the content (minus the voices of course) from the dvds or am I wrong? Also, Dragon Bal Kai wasn't released in the widescreen format like it was on Japanese TV.

    You're referring to the TV aired version right? Because my Kai dvds are definitely in widescreen.

    There's no doubt in my mind season 4 will be everything Davy Back Fight - Post Enies Lobby. Season 5+ is the tricky part, since there's no way they can cram all of Arc 5 into one season. I wouldn't be surprised if they made Thriller Bark (or maybe Thriller Bark - Sabody?) one season, then Amazon Lily+ another.

    Spoiler:
    It would make sense if you think about it. Once the Strawhats are separated it's a good chance for a new season title

    What? It's been said many times that both American Kai DVDs and Blu-rays are 4:3...

    207-325 would only be two sets longer than Season Two, were it to count as Season Four (four more discs, for a totaly of eighteen for a complete season set).

    Season 3 will undoubtedly end with G8. The only question is if/where Water 7 & Ennis Lobby are split.

    If that is true, then my 360 does an amazing job stretching them on my HD tv without distorting the quality

    It depends on how many voyages this season will have cause season 2 had 7, so i'm not sure how long this one will be

    Kai was produced in Fullscreen, It was cropped into Widescreen for TV, the version we have on DVD and Blu here in the states is the whole picture.

    I'll be interviewing Mike McFarland tomorrow, I'll ask him where the line is drawn between Seasons 3 and 4 and what's gonna happen with the Widescreen.

They limped on to the 143rd episode(although due to the skipping at this point they had only dubbed 104 of them), with 52 of these episodes being released on dvd with the same problems as they had when they aired on tv.

    Then thankfully they dropped the license, funi picked it up and released movie 8, perhaps as a taster of what was to come - unedited episodes with a japanese track, subtitles and a good english dub.

    They also dubbed Skypeia for tv, this aired on cartoon network a couple of years ago, but sadly CN dropped it - supposedly as they wanted to air less Japanese animation.

    Since then, Funimation have released more then double the episodes on dvd that 4kids did in the same amount of time, over the last 2 years 130 episodes were released on dvd:

    And this month with season 2 voyage seven, this has been brought to 143 episodes:

    Which has ended the post-arabasta filler.

    On July the 6th we can expect Season 3 First Voyage, which will cover 144-156, and on August the 31st Season 3 Second Voyage which will probably cover the 13 episodes after that.

    And that's pretty much where we are now.
    lovely history lesson and the season three covers look great, a giant leap from the previous covers. and that's saying something.

    Awesome! At least we won't need to argue and debate about it if we get a straight answer one way or the other.

    Just watched the Zenny arc, or "Goat Sex Island", whichever you prefer. While at the bottom of the filler arcs for One Piece, I think I like this one more than Rainbow Mist. It has some funny moments, enough to make it enjoyable. Not to mention it only lasted for 3 episodes. Unlike Rainbow Mist, that seems to be like 6 or 7.

    The only thing I still can't figure out is how Robin got that enormous bump on her head... And an "anime bump" on Robin of all people feels to out of character.

    Well, I'll hold off on Rainbow Mist until after the weekend.

    I wouldn't put it past Funi to go for nine voyages for Season 4, but if they decide to split it, Episode 258/259 would be a decent stop point. End the season with Sogeking on the train.

    That'd make it four voyages for S4 and five voyages for S5.

    Alright DVD discussion part 2. It feels weird but whatever.

    I also have a feeling it's going to be 9 voyages, since as of now they're obviously dividing the seasons by Sagas. I can see them breaking it up too, but I still think they're more likely to go with 9 voyages for continuity's sake. Heck, they just did 7 voyages, what's 2 more. But I'd also say 9 is the max. Double-digit Voyages... just saying it sounds awkward.
    Why post just one rank from one site when you can post two!
