More than likely gonna be edited, FUNi said they made an edited version alongside the uncut just like the episodes. Of course Australia is most likely gonna use that cut.
I'm sorry, can you back that up? I don't think FUNimation made an edited version of movie 8
If FUNi did any edits for the movie at all, it was voice edits… ...as for blood, cigarettes, etc, that would be CNs sensoring, or possibly a different company, not FUNi. Not everything Mike says is true... ...that rumor about slipping in a cigarette... an entirely different department handles video editing and I know they didnt touch the movie. It was merely an accident that made his rumor appear true.
Yep, he said they made an edited version right alongside the uncut. They're probably doing that with every One Piece production under their helm. (in other words: not video games) FUNi wants One Piece to air on TV, all of it. I bet you they recorded an edited version of First Voyage.
No, it would make no sense to pay millions of dollars to remove blood and cigarettes on a show that may or may not ever air on US TV again. Besides, Im sure the plan is that if they air 1-143 on TV again, they would use FUNi audio (which may be edited for TV), and 4kids video… ...meaning hello lollipop.
