Relationship to the Manga

Despite its extensive faithfulness to its source material, One Piece adapts nearly all of the manga’s story content without intentionally contradicting it.

Toei Animation has also developed many original story materials, commonly referred to as “filler” by fans, and has produced many standalone One Piece works, which do not fall under the television anime’s episode numbering or broadcast schedule.

These include –

  • Fourteen theatrical films are released more sporadic than during Golden Week.
  • Three featurettes, included with the second, third, and fifth films.
  • Thirteen television specials.
  • Four-hour specials, all original stories, aired in standard episode timeslots (that coincide with seasonal school breaks).
  • Nine, two-hour specials aired on days preceding standard episodes (usually coincident with school breaks).
  • Various original video animations (OVAs) usually serve as tie-ins for individual films.
  • Special events and attractions show a variety of exhibition shorts.

English localization and broadcasting

One Piece English Dub by 4Kids

One Piece was licensed for distribution in North America by 4Kids Entertainment on June 8, 2004.

4Kids’ in-house musicians created a new background score and theme song called “Pirate Rap” they also mandated edits for content and length, which reduced the first 143 episodes into 104.

On September 18, 2004, it premiered on Fox, followed by Cartoon Network and Toonami in April 2005. As 4kids makes content only for under seven, the company decided to edit One Piece into a more child-oriented series until they could legally drop the license.

In 2007, Funimation (now Crunchyroll, LLC) licensed the series and began production on an English-language release.

On September 29, 2007, Cartoon Network premiered Funimation-dubbed episodes, which aired until March 22, 2008.

In May 2013, after episode 207, the uncut series returned to Adult Swim’s Toonami late-night programming block. Later, One Piece was removed from Toonami in March 2017.

From January 22, 2022, Toonami is again airing One Piece starting with episode 517.
