P.Diddy: I be watchin my brutha Luffy and his Pirate posse search for One Piece
2. the anime 4-kids (curse them) screwed up causing a huge protest about owning the rights to te show , well we won and the rights belong to Funimation
i hate 4-kids tv for what they did to one piece
Sure, this all sounds amazing, and it is! But In America, 4kids discovered One Piece, and thought they could make money out of it. So 4kids bought the rights, and dubbed One Piece. Unsuspecting viewers expected a great dub, but were instead subjected to dreadful editing, a terrible choice of voice actors, and the simply awful new theme song. The dreaded One Piece rap.
Fortunately, 4kids lost the rights, and Funimation took over. They did a much better job on the show, and brought back many of the viewers that were lost. Unfortunately, the first dub stuck in the minds of some viewers, and they refused to watch it again. Some other viewers didn't watch the funimation dub, but they did go back to english subtitles. Even now, the damage 4kids did has'nt been forgotten.
Friend 2: That depends. Is it the english sub, or the dub?
Friend 1: It's the dub.
Friend 2: Oh please no! Anything but that!
Friend 1: Don't worry! It's the funimation dub!
Friend 2: Well, I suppose I could try it... As long as we don't have to watch the 4kids one.
Friend 1: That will never happen.
