    I don't think FUNimation is even sure of how they want to release the new dub episodes yet.

    Previously, they would release one or two new eps just before a DVD release, and then release the rest via streaming soon after. If they were to release too many episodes via streaming now to hold us over, that could reduce DVD sales. But I don't think they're ready to release anything on home video yet. I think they're being held up over whether or not they'll be allowed to release these episodes on Blu-ray, and how many episodes they should have per set. Will they continue in the format of Voyage releases, followed later by Collections? If they go straight into Collections for the larger episode count, how will they handle the episodes from the end of Fishman Island that haven't been released in that format yet?

    I don't think they're ready for anything. I think they were pressured by fans and by Toei to announce *something* by the 20th anniversary.

    I think the streaming releases are going to stick—not just be one and done to tie us over. They release plenty of shows on streaming before DVD.

    True, but those shows aren't One Piece, with a library of hundreds upon hundreds of episodes yet to be seen in English. For people who have already seen these episodes in Japanese, and merely want to experience the English version, I don't see a lot of them purchasing the DVDs or Blu-rays if they're already available for free (or subscription) online. Unless the DVDs or Blu-rays have some really nice extras this time around. I think releasing them on video first is better for FUNi's bottom line. But that's just a guess.

    Probably, but they’re testing out FunimationNow as a first outlet. If they get a bump in subscribers when they release it, that may outweigh the extra few people who decide not to buy the DVDs because of it.

    My suspicion? I think anyone who was going to stop buying the DVDs did so the moment funimation started releasing the episodes streaming same day as dvd release. And if that’s the case, the bump in subscribers is all net good. The people who were buying the DVDs will buy them anyways, especially if they release Blu-ray instead.
