No it wouldn't. It's a show for kids.
One Piece belongs edited and censored at 4pm on Cartoon Network.
No, It belongs totally uncensored in that timeslot. Stupid network bastards keep trying to shield kids from a show that isn't even all that offensive to begin with. Besides, it's not like it's a super-kiddy show. It's the same audience as DB, which is to say 8-12 year olds, with a smaller older audience who stick with the show because of the overall quality .

On topic, I pray to to the Toriyama gods that the Dr. Slump anime(Both of them!) get brought over to America. If only it would've been brought over earlier and put on Toonami, it might've gotten almost as big as Spongebob! Lord knows it's a hell of a lot funnier. And the special would also be 10 varieties of awesome.

My thoughts too.
Then what they'll release will be manga volumes: First censored like shit. Then they release "remastered" versions (as it was meant to be seen), where they have blurred the pages. Then they will release the untouched ones.

I had reason to, I don't see the point in stating something like that.

Folks... if you have nothing to say, please don't bother saying that you (or someone else) has nothing to say. You're not adding anything to the conversation, and it's not cute. Thanks!

The point was, his post wasn't entirely pointless at all. He was just making a little joke that pertained to the topic of the thread. There was really no reason for you to call him out on it. I see people make joking posts like that all the time on this board.

I'd be pretty interested in how FUNimation would handle manga, and idea of them buying VIZ is interesting. I'm much more interesting in something involving "Strong World" and Volume 0 or the Jump Special, though.

I highly doubt FUNimation can buy Viz, they're basically a (the?) English branch of Shueisha and with ever so many of Japan's biggest comics sold by them, they have the cash to not be bought out. If anything, Viz or Shueisha would be able to buy them out, if they spoke directly to Navarre.

Anyhow, still...really hoping they're trying to release One Piece: Strong World together in a combo pack with Volume 0!!

Monster is airing on the Funimation Channel. If that was it, then ... bleh.

it could be Jump Special because...
A partir del 2009 el estudio SDI Media es el encargado del doblaje del nuevo material relacionado con la serie, comenzando con la live-action Dragonball Evolution y proximamente se encargará del doblaje de Dragon Ball: Goku y sus amigos regresan y Dragon Ball Kai para latinoamerica.
Translation:
Since 2009, SDI Media studio has taken charge of dubbing the new material about the series, it began with the live-action Dragon Ball Evolution; and Dragon Ball: Goku and his friends returns & Dragon Ball Kai will be dubbing soon.

So, if here in Latino-america, we will have Jump Special it has to be also in your country :lol:
but, it's from wikipedia and sometimes it isn't a reliable source...
