All the dub haters can buzz off. It's not like if they included a dub, your precious original voices would be removed. It's an additional feature for fans that hate reading and like hearing English better. Regardless it'll never ever happen

Not really up to Funimation. More up to Koei to dub or at least try to hire Funimation Actors.


That's fair, but Funimation also has the option to turn them down, which I assume they would do anyway, since they're so busy keeping up with Simuldub schedule

IIRC somebody years ago asked them why they didn't Dub Pirate Warriors and Chris Sabat (I think) essentially said they would have been thrilled to do it but it was up to Koei, who never bothered to hire them.

Japanese voices are far superior in all modern anime

I think in this case it's up to Bandai, since they're the producers/publishers of the game. I'm assuming that means they're covering all the costs, which includes dubbing.

One of the underlying issues is likely the budget. They likely would prefer to use that extra money to make the gameplay better than use it on dubs which only a small set of fans would use. Remember that One Piece is popular all over the world and native English speakers are only a portion of the overall fan base. Of that subset many English speakers prefer the Japanese voices. So they are likely weighing pros and cons. This is just my perspective though.

One of the reasons why One Piece will never be popular in America is the stubborn refusal to actually dub it.

The Show had a dub for years in the States. 4Kids and Toei goobered the first attempt, and Funimation started dubbing it around 2006-2007 iirc (Whenever Toonami "died") but mostly stuck to DVD releases once Toonami died. Now that Toonami kicked it off air (I guess because it had low ratings), it is back to just DVD/Blu-Ray Releases now with them doing I think the Fishman Island arc.

What kills it in the states is that people deem it too long, which is fair given there is now nearly 900 episodes, and there is the crowd that considers it to be too "goofy".
