The anime One Piece has to be one of the best shonen series in the last 10 years. It was the most selling manga in Japan last year. However, One Piece in the America is the polar opposites. When you say that you like One Piece to other anime fans, they tend to laugh because One Piece is a joke in America. The reason why it is a joke, it is because of the horrible dub done by 4Kids. The voices are nerve shattering, the music is crap, they over edited so many things, and they changed the plot.
Back in April of 2007, the dubbing company FUNimation got the rights of the anime and started redubbing the whole anime from the start and the right way. When the new dubs of One Piece aired, it was like a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, Cartoon Network canceled the anime after seven months being on the air. I was actually sad but a several months later, The DVDs started to come out. I think that FUNimation is the only dubbing company that can save the reputation of One Piece in America. Below I several Videos that show the comparison of the 4Kids dub and the FUNimation dub, all of these videos are done by the Youtube user, Tsukento.
As you can see in those videos, 4kids f*cked up big time and raped such a great anime. So, what do you think of the redubbing of the anime One Piece?
I'm personally planning to buy the FUNimation DVDs but I'm first going to shop around.
