When Will FUNi Catch Up? 2

UPDATE: FUNimation has announced Season 9, 10, and 11 on their site. Season 9 will go through 574, and Season 10 will go through 625. The craziest part is that Season 11 will be the first half of Dressrosa, ending at 685. Which is ONE EPISODE off of my prediction. But buckle your seatbelts, people, because we're likely about to experience a One Piece dub catch-up.

Dear Dub Enthusiasts,

A year ago today, I made predictions about exactly when each FUNimation DVD would come out up to the most recent episode of Dressrosa. This year, I plan to do the exact same thing. Because my predictions were way off! They're churning out a lot quicker than I had anticipated. So, now that an entire season has come out in just a year, here's a more generous prediction.

Season 8 (Marineford-Post War) Season 9 (Return to Sabaody - Fishman Island) Season 10 (Punk Hazard) Season 11 (Dressrosa Part 1) Season 12 (Dressrosa Part 2)

Badabing. Let's see how wrong I am.

Now last year when I did this, there was talk of a possible broadcast dub of One Piece (which is, if you didn't know, a simulcast dub with the Japanese release). Since then, they have admitted that idea is very unrealistic. One Piece has a very large cast of consistant characters. Sure, they can schedule John Swasey to record 20 episodes at once. But can they get him to record one line a week for 2 years? Can they get everybody in the booth every week? Especially because you never know when Bellamy's going to come back sudden.

This has been a good year for One Piece in America, so here's hoping for about 10 more.

Love, Ryu
