Is this exactly where they are in Japan? or is it a week behind?

I'm excited to hear about this. I actually just got into the series after hearing about the incident. Can't wait to see more episodes!

That's cool that Funi got the go-ahead to stream One Piece again. Hopefully at the same time they will also start placing up dubbed and subbed versions of the older episodes (episodes 1 and up), since I'm not used to their dub yet and I want to watch them before I see about purchasing the boxsets.

You should mention August 29th, or people will think it's this Saturday.

I'm pretty sure that August 29th is the planned airing date for episode 415, so that means that we're getting back as was originally planned... One hour after airing!

I'm so happy! Anime smile

Should be the matching episode like the article says. This is definitely good news and a bit surprising they were able to keep it simiulcast. Hope we get access to previous episodes of the arc too. Haven't visited Funi's site since they took off One Piece.

Oh I see, I read it on The One Piece Site, it actually starts on the 29th. I don't keep up with One Piece that's why I didn't know and wasn't sure. I might be able to keep up with it like this.

Over in Europe the One Piece fans just exploded. I hope something is worked out for them....

They're getting right into it. Good one Funimation.

Although, this arc is kinda boring and isn't the best place to start. The last arc would have definitely been better

I think that's why they're going to start uploading 3 episodes of the Sabaody Archipelago arc every day to prelude the streaming of 415.

The audience needs to know what happened and why spoiler[Luffy isn't with his nakama after all.]

Oh come on. Rolling Eyes

An actual hacking would have to occur this time seeing as FUNimation said they weren't going to upload episodes before they air in Japan. As long as they do that, we'll be fine.

They must have proved that they have better security for this to come back up exactly as it was originally.
