Funimation announced on Sunday that it has once again resumed English dubbing of episodes from the One Piece anime. Funimation did not announce a release date for the new dubbed episodes, but noted that the dub will pick back up with episode 575, the beginning of the anime's "Punk Hazard" story arc. Funimation released the English-dubbed episode 574 last year. Sunday marks the 20th anniversary of the One Piece television anime.
Funimation will also screen the One Piece Stampede anime film with an English dub. The film will play in U.S. theaters in Japanese with English subtitles on October 24, 29, and 31, and it will run with the English dub on October 26 and 30. In Canada, the film will play in Japanese with English subtitles on October 25 and November 5, and it will run in English on October 28 and November 8.
One Piece Stampede marks the 20th anniversary of the anime inspired by Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga. The film opened in Japan on August 9.
The film ranked at #1 in its opening weekend. The movie sold 356,052 tickets on 429 screens in 352 theaters on its opening day, the largest first-day attendance record at the Japanese box office so far in 2019.
