One Piece relaunches simulcast

18 08 2009

JG One PieceFans of the anime series One Piece expressed a great deal of disappointment over the cancellation of the simulcast of the series, after an episode was leaked before it was broadcast. Months after the cancellation, Funimation has announced that it will relaunch the simulcast, starting with episode 415. 

The simulcast will begin at 9 pm Central time Saturday, Aug. 29, one hour after it airs in Japan.

The simulcast was first slated to begin May 30, but the leaking of the episode Funimation pulled the plug on that and two other simulcasts. The other two shows restarted in a week, but One Piece sat in limbo until now.
