    That was quite a surprise there considering that I thought that Funimation was handling the simulcast. Of course, I haven't been watching this show since it's so long, but at the very least, it is great to see that One Piece fans get their fill.

      Oh my god, that is completely unexpected and completely fantastic. I guess FUNimation can't keep Toei from spreading it around, and I couldn't be happier for that. I do wish the publisher was FUNimation, since it would mean they finally started working with Crunchyroll, but this is at least a great deal better than I expected anyway. This is the one show I've had to watch on FUNimation's player for the past several years, and now that number gets to be reduced to zero, making it 24 out of 27 simulcasts on Crunchyroll. Wonderful.

        I wonder how far back they will be able to add the episodes. It's very likely it won't go before episode 391 (that's when FUNimation started simulcasting One Piece). It would be nice if they can go further back, but I'm not expecting that.

          Well, the forum topic does say "all" previous episodes.

          If that's true, I'll definitely check the show out sometime. I'd been planning to anyway, but CR is always preferable to Hulu.

            I didn't notice the forum blurb. I guess we just have to wait and see how far "all" extends to.

              Well this is definitely unexpected, after 4.5 years of FUNi doing the simulcast, CR is also going to simulcast it. I'll probably stop watching FUNi's stream if CR is able to simulcast episodes in HD.

              When they do upload the back episodes, I'm really curious to see if those special episodes such as the Toriko crossovers FUNi was unable to stream will get added.

                Fantastic news, though I'm nowhere near where they plan to start (will throw it in my queue anyway). I've only watched through 206 and I'm waiting for FUNi's voyage sets to finish before I start on S4-5. If someone (FUNi or CR, I'm not picky) could get that chunk between FUNi's home video license and start of the simulcast, I'd be all set for a OP marathon.

                  For anyone at all curious about it, seems CR's streams use different subs than FUNi's, and CR unfortunately was unable to get the latest opening, so it's still "We Go".

                  Also interestingly enough, both have "We won't left anyone behind." as a typo in the subs for the opening. FUNi has had that as a typo since the first episodes using that opening were streamed.

                    Another oddity about that typo is it's been fixed in the Hulu uploads for some time now. I'm not entirely sure why the initial streams still have it incorrect.

                      I wonder how that happened given that a different set of subs are being used. After all, word choice is always different depending on who is translating it as far as I can remember being said.

                        If they do go all the way back I'll likely check out the first part of the series. I always get sick of these never ending shows before too long though.

                          Yep, we've still got We Go! after forever. But getting to watch this on Crunchyroll's great player, in HD (not being able to watch Toonami, I've never seen even seen any One Piece in HD except Movie 8, so this is a really big deal for me) with no ads, nicer (soft, and multilingual) subs, and none of the many issues I'm used to is such a treat that I really don't care that much about that. As much as I'd like to see the new animation (especially since I still have to see the Fishman Island characters every week), I've honestly never gotten sick of that song, and the animation is still really great.

                          I haven't done comparisons for this particular episode (and I don't plan to ever touch FUNimation's stream of it again), but it looks like they're probably getting the same English subs, including both translation and roumaji for the lyrics, unlike most Crunchyroll simulcasts, although both are at the bottom of the screen unlike FUNimation's stream. The episodes still start with the Toei bump, with the only difference being the obvious lack of the (also very outdated) FUNimation one. The copyright at the end does say "License coordinated by FUNimation Entertainment", so I guess there is some hint of collaboration going on here.

                          EDIT: Oh, just read the post that the subs are in fact different. Interesting.

                            It's possible that's the official lyric both translation teams were given, and neither was allowed to deviate from that, even if the music publishers never bothered to update and fix the typo.

                              I'm probably being delusional in hoping this news will somehow help speed up FUNi's DVD Sets of One Piece, right?

                              (I know that FUNi isn't involved in CR having One Piece)
