Anime News Network has been informed that there will be an announcement tomorrow regarding the "One Piece streaming/simulcast."
Funimation Entertainment planned to start online simulcast streaming of One Piece on May 30, with episode 403, which they aimed to make available within one hour of the Japanese broadcast. However the simulcast was quickly canceled after episode 403 was leaked and distributed online illegally more than a day before the Japanese broadcast.
Other titles affected by the leak have since returned to Funimation's online streaming services. However, Funimation has yet to restore the streams of One Piece. Episode 413 was broadcast in Japan on August 16.
