    I got this e-mail from Roz Nowicki (marketing director for 4Kids):


    To dub viewers... Remorse. To dub... not-likers... Rejoice!

    For some reason, I'm locked in a combination of the two. If the show is picked up by another company, how weird will it be to hear someone other than David Moo voicing Sanji?

    It's good to hear that 4Kids has finally given up. I hope they give up the rights and FUNimation or Viz can take it. The dub most have done really poorly for 4Kids to give up on it.

    If another company gets it, they should add a sticker to the front: "The version that 4Kids wouldn't let you see!" :p

    Here's hoping either Viz or FUNi get it- Viz because it's currently selling the DVDs and also has a history of longer shows, or FUNi because, well, it currently is my favorite anime company and I'd be very confident that they'd treat it right.

    Agreed. Even if they pick up where it left off, which would be sort of like DBZ for this decade. As for someone else picking it up, the biggest obstacle may be Toei even more than 4Kids. I don't know why exactly, but Toei is known for doing screwey things.

    Also, this news likely indicates that Prince of Tennis and MAR are actual additions to the schedule and not just, say, one time airings to promote Toonami Jetstream.

    BEST NEWS EVAR.

    I want Viz to pick it up. A Naruto-quality dub would be great.

    I love Funi but I think Viz should get it since they already have Naruto and Bleach.

    COME ON VIZ GO FOR THE TRIPLE CROWN!!

    I just hope we have some very lax people...

    Toei, whoever is to pick up One Piece, CN, and even 4Kids if they sit on the lisence...

    They all need to be is some kind of agreement in order to save One Piece over here...

    Oh god, if a DBZ situation happens (but with a better dub) I'll be the happiest man on earth.

    It's over? It's really over?

    I too am locked in limbo. It's more that I can't believe its over than anything else. I guess CN decided not to bother with the rest of Alabasta. Honestly I think it would have been good if they were to at least air to the end of Alabasta to finish the story that was going but I suppose since that doesn't conclude anything beyond that arc its not worth buying the rest for.

    Now lets hope Viz or someone else can pick up the pieces.

    Let that be a lesson to you TOEI. You can't jerk the non-Japanese fans around like that anymore. Or you'll have a failure out of one of your most successful franchises ever. There's a reason DBZ still sells. That reason is FUNimation making ammends for their mistakes.

    And I say now to you 4kids Entertainment. You were fools to treat One Piece like crap and expect the success of DBZ. You could have had a break out series with a ton of merchadising potential but the only merchadise that has been successful is the manga NO THANKS TO YOU and your Zolo. Now my final word is a word of advise. Sell it, sell it to someone who cares while you still can. You might be able to get back some of the money you wasted on it that way.

    Well considering I don't go on Jetstream I didn't know POT was from Viz so Golden Sombrero it is.

    Well, looks like Ojamajo Doremi and Precure may have fallen the same fate... Not that's a bad thing. :anime:

    And I know one particular company that's been wanting Ojamajo Doremi for some time now... (AN Entertainment.)
