I found this article on here:
it IS biased XD… but I was wondering if this part about the article was true and if anyone's seen it
"Kevin: One Piece has, to be blunt, FAILED miserably!
Kevin: And the Japanese guys are wondering how 4Kids could have POSSIBLY
screwed up that shows success, and now there seems to be some question on
whether or not 4Kids is the marketing Gods they once were
GS: they're saying that in Japan?
GS: nyah nyah!
Kevin: Apparently, the main people over at SJ Japan have looked at the shows
failure, and wrote an article in one of the latest issues wondering how a
sure-fire hit misfired so badly
GS: somebody must translate it
GS: "step in time, step in time, step in time, step in time!"
Kevin: Now keep in mind, this is ONLY a rumor, but apparently there may not
even BE a second season of One Piece!
Kevin: At least, not with 4Kids
Kevin: If 4Kids can't find a way to make the show a success by the end of
the first quester of next year, their contract with the show may end,
leaving the rights open
Kevin: This is what my uncle said, who works for Wall Street and owns stock
Kevin: But keep in mind, this is ONLY a rumor"
