Neon Alley Adds "One Piece" to Anime Lineup

Network launches next month over Playstation Network

Keeping true to its word that newsletter subscribers would get the heads-up on new developments before anyone else, Viz Media-backed online linear network Neon Alley has announced that it has added One Piece to its anime series lineup, although the specifics of just how many episodes they've added has yet to be known, as Funimation has currently dubbed the first 229 episodes in English.

With the addition of One Piece to its lineup, Neon Alley is establishing itself as a viable alternative to Toonami, which is operating on a much smaller budget compared to its previous incarnation which was cancelled in 2008 and is also operating with some semblance of cooperation with Funimation, as the block premiered Deadman Wonderland and more recently Samurai 7.

With One Piece now on Neon Alley, uncut and in English, will this convince any of you to spring for the $6.99 monthly fee for the channel, or would you rather have seen it on Toonami?
