    I don't think FUNimation is even sure of how they want to release the new dub episodes yet.

    Previously, they would release one or two new eps just before a DVD release, and then release the rest via streaming soon after. If they were to release too many episodes via streaming now to hold us over, that could reduce DVD sales. But I don't think they're ready to release anything on home video yet. I think they're being held up over whether or not they'll be allowed to release these episodes on Blu-ray, and how many episodes they should have per set. Will they continue in the format of Voyage releases, followed later by Collections? If they go straight into Collections for the larger episode count, how will they handle the episodes from the end of Fishman Island that haven't been released in that format yet?

    I don't think they're ready for anything. I think they were pressured by fans and by Toei to announce *something* by the 20th anniversary.

    I think the streaming releases are going to stick—not just be one and done to tie us over. They release plenty of shows on streaming before DVD.

    True, but those shows aren't One Piece, with a library of hundreds upon hundreds of episodes yet to be seen in English. For people who have already seen these episodes in Japanese, and merely want to experience the English version, I don't see a lot of them purchasing the DVDs or Blu-rays if they're already available for free (or subscription) online. Unless the DVDs or Blu-rays have some really nice extras this time around. I think releasing them on video first is better for FUNi's bottom line. But that's just a guess.

    Probably, but they’re testing out FunimationNow as a first outlet. If they get a bump in subscribers when they release it, that may outweigh the extra few people who decide not to buy the DVDs because of it.

    My suspicion? I think anyone who was going to stop buying the DVDs did so the moment funimation started releasing the episodes streaming same day as dvd release. And if that’s the case, the bump in subscribers is all net good. The people who were buying the DVDs will buy them anyways, especially if they release Blu-ray instead.

    Did they say we would get new episodes this year, because 2019 is starting run out of real estate

    I don't think they did. Only that new dub episodes were coming.

    "really soon"

    which seems to mean something completely different in a business context...

    100% this. Probably it got internally delayed yet again for some stupid reason. Who the hell knows when we’ll see it. One would hope they’d release the snowy arc in December, but December is running out and companies don’t tend to like releasing things during the holidays.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    They announced on October 20th. Two months is a good bit. Certainly not “really soon.” March solicits come out on Monday, btw.

    The impression I got from the announcement was that the episodes were going to be up on FUNimation Now before a physical release, so they could just drop the episodes out of nowhere. I don't know that FUNimation's ever done something like that before, but they could be up tomorrow for all we know.

    Geez, I can't believe it's been that long already. They sure love making us wait, don't they...

    Unless they pull a Christmas surprise (unlikely), it looks like 2019 will be a full year of no new dubbed One Piece episodes.

    Geez. They really are dragging their feet on this. To be fair, if they upload all of Punk Hazard, I'll cut them some slack.

    They won’t. They already said they’re only going to upload the first thirteen episodes, four of which are filler.

    I just can’t support the games anymore; those PW games are just so terrible imo. Wish they made more Unlimited games, though.

    And good news for Stampede, though of course we’d all prefer episodes at this point. It’ll be fun to watch Stampede in Blu-ray at home!

    They're not terrible if you like Warriors games. They're just for that specific audience

    Sure. There will always be an audience for bad video games.

    Lol sure they're far from masterpieces, and repetitive as hell. But I've found them enjoyable from time to time, when you need an easy mindless kinda game

    so at this rate, what are the chances the dvd releases even start dressrosa by the end of 2020? Because we are now waiting on April just for the start of punk hazard...
    Happy 20th anniversary, One Piece anime!
