There once lived a pirate named Gol D. Roger. He obtained wealth, fame, and power to earn the title of Pirate King. When he was captured and about to be executed, he revealed that his treasure called One Piece was hidden somewhere at the Grand Line. This made all people set out to search and uncover the One Piece treasure, but no one ever found the location of Gol D. Roger's treasure, and the Grand Line was too dangerous a place to overcome. Twenty-two years after Gol D. Roger's death, a boy named Monkey D. Luffy decided to become a pirate and search for Gol D. Roger's treasure to become the next Pirate King. Written by
4Kids was the first dubbing company to dub One Piece. However, many fans of the original Japanese version detested the editing many episodes and scenes in 4Kids's translations received (editing out all mentions of death, getting rid of cigarettes or replacing them with lollipops, cutting out entire arcs, adding unnecessary jokes and puns in the heavily edited dialog and more). FUNimation eventually acquired rights to dub the series from episode 144 onwards, and eventually obtained the rights to episodes 1-143. The 143 episodes which 4Kids did edit were edited so heavily that they had been cut down to 104 episodes. See more »
I watch a lot of fan subbed anime and occasionally watch some dubbed anime if there is nothing else good on TV. Well one day while watching Toonami in the UK i stumbled across show called one piece. It wasn't amazingly good, there were obvious problems with the dub, but it was enjoyable none the less. After i'd watched few episodes i started to become curious about the characters and the origins of the story. I did a little bit of research on the web and found out that the version of One Piece i was watching had been butchered from its original format. There were A lot of sources that all said the same thing, that the original One Piece was brilliant and that the dub was nothing in comparison. I liked the show and wanted to see what Uncut One Piece was like. After a little more searching i found some fantastic fansubs and my real One Piece experience started. What can i say, Japanese One Piece is one of the best stories ever told and is by far my favourite show to watch. I look forward everyweek to watching the next episode when the fansub is released. 280 episodes into the series and its still as great as it was when it first started.
A poor dub led me to discover my favourite show, and so if nothing else, the dub will let new fans like me discover One Piece.
Lets all hope this adventure continues for a long time.
