One Piece to simulcast with Ep. 403

14 05 2009

JG Luffy and ZoroU.S. fans of the anime series One Piece have reason to rejoice: Funimation recently announced that the series will be broadcasting simultaneously in Japan and America starting with episode 403. 

Each episode will be available on the website www.onepieceofficial.com, and will be available within an hour of its broadcast in Japan. The video will then trickle down to Funimation’s partner sites. 

If continued, the trend of simulcasting could make anime more accessible to fans overseas, decreasing waiting time for those craving the latest episode. It also allows the company to control the online video dissemination, enabling them to make online video a viable economic model with the sale of advertising.
