    I'm expecting Super Part 7 (it had better be there, lest we fall even farther behind the Toonami airing), as well as Black Clover Part 4 for sure.
    ​​​​​​
    Otherwise hoping for Darling in the FranXX 2, and pipe dream wishes would be if we get MHA and AoT Season 3. And please Funi, for the love of everything, let's get moving on One Piece.

      Another month and another futile hope for another One Piece collection box set.

        Third comment and also third person hoping for more One Piece episodes. Damn, we all know they have dubbed the next arc over a year ago, come on FUNi, just release the damn thing (unless you've got a plan, then tell us what it is!)

        Anyway, that aside, I believe we will probably get the next part of DB Super since Part 6 is released in January. Also, I am hoping for some of the older Simuldubs from past seasons to be released: Masamune-kun's Revenge, Restaurant to Another World and Love Tyrant

        Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc (Part 2) is also a possibility since Part 1 is going to be released in Feb. I am hoping for HINAMATSURI since that was my favourite Simuldub from 2018.

        I was also hoping for Monster Hunter Stories: Part 5, though there is no telling if they ever dubbed beyond what they have already released. Same with The Disastrous life of Saiki K: Season 2, but who knows if they even have the rights to Season 2 or not.

        Would also love MHA: Season 3, Part 1. Though doubt that would come out yet, Same with AoT Season 3: Part 1. They most likely will wait until all of AoT: Season 3 is out before releasing any

          Surely, Funimation, this month has to bring the next batch of One Piece episodes.
          It's getting ridiculous now - I have a feeling they're up to something, but don't know what.
          I'd love MHA S3, Golden Kamuy S1, Black Clover and Dragon Ball Super P7.

            The (largely unfounded) theory I've seen on Arlong Park Forums recently is that they're switching to 26 episode sets like Viz did with the Hunter x Hunter sets, which I would be completely on board with. I don't think there's any substance behind that theory (other than Viz doing it), and I personally don't believe it, but I would be okay with it.

            The more likely reasoning is that there are quite a few out of town dub actors in both Punk Hazard and Dressrosa that are heavily featured throughout both arcs. Between that and Funi's already heavy dubbing schedule (according to a recent interview with Sean Schemmel, the Adult Swim airing of Dragon Ball Super is getting dangerously close to where they are in dubbing the series, and many of those VAs are One Piece regulars), I think the most hopeful theory is that they just fell behind with dubbing. I really hope it isn't something nefarious, or they they couldn't get the rights to Hands Up or something like that. Would be nice if we got Blu-ray rights too.

              Blu-Ray would be great, as Japan started their BD releases at Punk Hazard, so it's possible.
              I saw those theories in Arlong Park, and I actually posted about the 26 episode sets rumour.

              I think they've likely fell behind on dubbing, the Simuldub schedule is stretching them thin.
              I had no idea the Super TV airing was so close to the recording, I guess there goes our hopes for a Simuldub if it returns in April or July.

                It'd be nice that if they are behind with the dub that they just come out and say as much. Sure that may frustrate many but at least we'd know. It's hardly a criminal act to delay the One Piece dub so they should just communicate with their customers.

                  I'm expecting at least My Hero Academia Season 3 Part 1 since Season 1 and Season 2 Part 1 released exactly a year after those seasons aired.

                    I doubt it; they are not Sentai. Part 1 could be released this year between May and July. While part 2 should be released on Spring 2020.

                      The simuldub schedule definitely makes the most sense, a lot of those dub actors are in simuldubs and other dubbing projects, so I'm hopeful that they just couldn't find the time for a while and are back at it now. I wouldn't mind 26 episode sets, especially with how DBZ-ish the pacing in One Piece becomes. Blu-ray I'm not expecting because Toei will probably be Toei about it, but the Fish Man Island episodes being anchored to DVD quality was very distracting in a few scenes. It would be a welcome surprise. In any event, I agree with BlaizeV that some communication on Funi's part would be nice, but they keep stuff like that pretty close to the chest for whatever reasons.

                      Source for the Super dub thing was from this interview with Schemmel btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ4fG6jOBh8. In the interview (which took place in December supposedly), he claims they just finished recording the Frieza recruiting part, which is like episode 96 or so. Adult Swim just aired 93 on Saturday, so they're cutting it pretty close.

                      In that regard, I guess Funimation can't really solicit Blu-ray sets for Super any faster. A victim of their own success, perhaps.

                        It could have been worse, look at Final Chapters before 2017...

                            According to Rawly Pickens, they started recording 97 last weekend (5th).
                            They are just over a month ahead right now, so no wonder they can't solicit the BD at a faster rate.

                            One Piece has suffered due to the sheer amount of Simuldubs Funimation are producing now.
                            Colleen is also ADR director for MHA, but that isn't coming back until October, so here's hoping they can make a dent in Dressrosa.
                            Knowing Toei, like you say, they'll probably stop Funimation from getting the Blu-Ray rights.

                            They could very well switch to 26 episode sets exclusively now, because we are going to get a lot less releases a year moving forward than we used to.

                              Once again, I'm hopeful that there will be something for me to get from the upcoming solicitation. Seeing that the show aired two years ago and the dub is coming tomorrow that I have to think that the first season of Konosuba is coming. It has been long overdue for its release, and now the dub for the first season is finished, it shouldn't be too long until it comes out.
