I know this has been discussed before but only in the 4kids topics and not a lot of people check those on a regular basis. So to those who don't know, I present the Alternate English One Piece dub:
Yes you heard me, there is an alternate ENGLISH DUB! Not English subtitles, not a fan dub, but a 100% legit ENGLISH dub of One Piece out there, and it beats the SNOT outta the 4kids version. (like that's hard to do) The only thing I know they cut is Sanji's cigarette BUT.. he doesn't have a lollipop. He just has nothing and it looks fine really. They did such a good job editing I was finding myself asking, "Did Sanji always not have a cigarette there or did they edit it?" I was just informed the other day by RomanGod about this and thought I'd post it here. I got permission from a mod to post this too BTW.
The main problems consist of Luffy's name is pronounced Luh-fy and saying "rubber" instead of like gum gum or gomu gomu, and some people say the voices are worse than 4kids. I disagree. After watching the clips a few times, I really think the voices are just fine. Some people say 4kids voices are better and again, I really disagree here but it's all about opinions.
Anywho, there's some clips on youtube:
A few clips including some of Buggy, Sanji, Gin and Lougetown
Luffy saves Zoro in the third episode
I suppose you want to know now where to obtain this. Well it's dubbed by a group in Singapore called "Odex" and unfortunately, finding their merchandise online is… quite difficult. this is the only one I could find.
It's volume one and is VCD, not DVD. I guess Odex doesn't do much DVD. They've dubbed a LOT of the series and Im sure they're ahead of 4kids, but until I find out more about them, this is the best I can do. If anyone has any info on where to obtain their produces (besides Singapore) let me know. Until then, I'll just keep searching around.
