One Piece brand manager Josh Kocurek stated on the One Piece Podcast last week that Funimation is considering a broadcast dub for the series. Kocurek said the team is looking for feedback from viewers.
Kocurek also confirmed that Funimation is moving forward with One Piece season seven. The season covers episodes 385-456 in six home video installments. The company plans to start releasing season seven this summer. One Piece Season 6 Part 4 goes on sale on April 7.
Funimation launched its first two Broadcast Dubs, Psycho-Pass 2 and Laughing Under the Clouds, in November after premiering both shows with subtitles in October. The company plans to produce a final English dub after the Broadcast Dub and before the home video release of each show.
The company's second round of broadcast dubs begin premiering on Wednesday. The line-up includes Death Parade, Tokyo Ghoul √A, The Rolling Girls, World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Kamisama Kiss 2, Absolute Duo, Yuri Kuma Arashi, Yona of the Dawn, and Maria the Virgin Witch.
