I misread them as 4-komas, those are still not included anyway.
Well done Sentai, well done. 8 episodes between seasons 1 and 2. The movie is episodes 7 and 8 of the season 2 OVAs, and there are three OVAs (so far) after the movie. No-one will be able to follow what’s happening with almost half the show missing. They shouldn’t have bothered if the OVAs aren’t available.

One Piece English dub is upon us.

On Toei Animation's Twitter page - D

On Funimation's Twitter page - U

On One Piece Official's Twitter page - B

To provide context, the main series hasn't had a new release in a while. They finished (or almost) releasing the Fisherman Island arc (the first major story arc in the New World saga) and there have been rumors that Punk Hazard arc dubbing was already completed. Funimation haven't exactly given up on the franchise since they had been focusing on the TV Specials and recent films on Blu-ray as of late.
  • Films: Gold, Stampede
  • TV Specials: Heart of Gold, 3D2Y, Adventure of Nebulandia, Episode of East Blue, Episode of Sabo, Episode of Skypiea
On another note, it's been confirmed that Johnny Yong Bosh will be taking over as the voice of Sabo.

Hope that means UK releases will resume. It’s been almost a year since the last one.
Yeah Manga Ent. has 3 Collection sets left to essentially catch up. Honestly they should have put out the TV specials and films to make up for the long wait but then again they haven't even bothered with GOLD.

I still want Manga to make use of Funimation and get Toei Europe to allow them to have the streaming rights to OP & DBZ for Funimation Now UK.
