    Guys there are rumors of Viz Media losing the license to Sailor Moon. Whether its true or not, I wonder what that means for One Piece and Funimation.

    I doubt this is true. Since Viz is about to release the final volume of Sailor Moon in November.

    Sorry, a previous post also identified Godswill as the brand manager. From a post on his Twitter account it appears he moved to California and started a podcast with another guy (not certain if the latter is why he left Funimation). Aside from getting Godswill position wrong, I still stand by what I posted after that as to why the dub will likely continue.

    Where did you here this info? Just want to know if the source is reliable or not.

    Also All of SuperS is being added to Hulu on October 1st or 2nd. Viz will also likely have the license for the two movies for Crystal that will come out in 2020.

    Godswill was let go from Funimation due to some unknown reason, but I think he's still working on their podcast? Not sure on that. He moved to LA to work at a fan consulting agency. Just looked up his Twitter. Bummer to have one less OP fan in the office.

    Godswill is no longer part of the One Piece at a Time podcast either sadly, but that of course doesn't say anything about the dub continuing - since Godswill was never part of the brand management team for One Piece

    Rewatching the special. Right off the bat, Young Luffy’s voice is higher and more nasally than the Sabo flashback (except, for some reason, when he’s yelling; then he sounds the almost the same—loses some of the nasal when screaming), and Shanks does not have his usual gravel—he sounds way more smooth and polished a voice. Makino, Beckman, Lucky Roux, mountain bandits, and the other residents sound the same.

    Small nitpicks so far, anyways. Not enough to detract and the acting is working. I’ll post incrementally over the next few days as I watch a little bit before bed each night and compare on the funimation app with originals.

    Haven't watched the special yet, but watched the documentary last night. It was really nice and surprisingly long. Didn't learn too much new info, but it was just really cool to see the cast and crew talk about their experience. Also saw that I'm in one of the final photos in the credits, though I'm mostly cropped out (I'm the Capone cosplay holding Colleen's arm on the right, from NYCC 2018)

    Godswill left the Podcast at about the beginning of Skypiea (they’re nearly done with Enies Lobby now) and they’ve been rotating his spot with MJ and Jonna (and one time someone else whose name I can’t recall). It’s been fun seeing the different perspectives since MJ speaks Japanese and has been providing insights as to cultural references and word play.


    Exit: Looks like Chris Rager is our new Blackbeard. A pretty good choice, so long as he can keep himself from just sounding like Arlong.

    Chris Rager as Teach is a great choice!. I'm always going to miss Cole Brown, but it's nice that Chris is playing him, he's in good hands.

    Whoa, that's big news. Chris Rager is our new Blackbeard!

    That worries me a bit, honestly. Not anything against Chris Rager, as he's a fine actor. But his trademark voice is rather recognizable, and I'm worried I might hear Arlong in his Blackbeard role. I'll of course reserve judgement until I see the movie. I'm confident Mike McFarland wouldn't have cast him if he wasn't a fine replacement.

    I think Chris will do his best to sound closer to Cole's rendition of Teach than sounding like Arlong.

    Just noticed that Funimation spoiled Law's full name for dub-only watchers, so oops.

    I might be misinterpreting what you're saying and I apologize if I do. He might not have been part of the brand management team, but he still might have been privy to some info about how One Piece was doing in the US (such as sales figures for DVD sales or viewer count on Funimation Now).

    To be fair his voice for Arlong is similar to his voice for Mr. Satan. I've heard Chris in other shows like Assassination Classroom were I didn't know he was voicing a character until I saw his name in the credits, although in later episodes there were some instances were I could here Mr. Satan in his character's voice.

    Daman Mills tagged Zach Bolton in his tweet announcing his role as Bullet so he's probably new Sabo, not listed on the cast list for obvious reasons

    Finally I've been waiting for tickets to go on sale.

    I just got episode of east blue, and saw the special feature. It was really nice, and it seems that they are really committed in dubbing the show, but please give us the announcement already.

    Ah, Daman Mills was recording his lines for three hours straight on the day I toured. Very cool to know. Too bad the tour began right after he finished. :(

    Don’t know Zach Bolton, but I won’t be too picky for Sabo. I’m sure he’ll be fine.

    Glad to hear Blackbeard was well recasted. Hopefully the actor tries to match rather than reinvent.

    Ah derp, I messed up my Zach's, Zach Bolton probably isn't Sabo then - they just didnt list Sabo for some reason, same with Hancock and Smoker

    Chris Rager is a great choice for the new dub voice of Blackbeard. I enjoy his performances as Mr. Torgue (Borderlands), Mr. Satan, and Arlong.
