Could the rights to opening "Hands Up" be effecting the release schedule? Perhaps Funimation is fighting to be able to include it on the DVDs (as most of you know it wasn't originally in the simulcast episodes when they aired, but it is there now)
I don't know, obviously I hope it's not true, but the delay is making me suspicious as to whether this is an actual issue / reason
Oh, gosh. I forgot about that headache. Who the hell knows what the hold up is. Wish there was a way to ask Funimation and have them actually answer? Can someone tweet them? I don't have Twitter.
I marathoned the flashback episodes. Otohime drunk on a loud speaker was the best part of the arc, imo. I was way more sympathetic to her death than Tiger's. My girlfriend was pissed when it happened because literally her first scene was about dodging bullets. Maybe Otohime has to be paying attention to dodge the bullet? The fire and emotional loss of the papers distracted her observation haki? That was my part-b/s answer to how she died.
Here's to making those last six or so episodes last three months… Madman rationing over here. I assume Hody's voice doesn't change at all when he hulks out, does it?

Started watching the dub with my 6yo and it's taken us a little over 12 months to reach MarineFord.
We can at least progress with the digitally colored manga scans. The translation of that is already one third into Dressrosa
Your six year old is reading the manga? Cool. Not to violent for him? Guess you don't mind the occasional cursing, eh?
Also, I wish VIZ would publish omnibi of the colored version. I'd buy the whole series over.
