Viz made an announcement that they had increased the # of places where people could watch One Piece online. They mentioned CR as one new place but I checked the link and there are no videos on the One Piece page yet.

Does anyone know when they plan on adding it? Also, will we be stuck with Viz's backlog release schedule of 1 new old episode a week *currently at 113... of of almost 500 :(* or will CR being doing their own translations for ideally increased releases?

I would have thought Funimation had exclusive North American streaming rights, but apparently that isn't so.

I have to imagine, however, that if it turns out Funimation does hold an NA exclusive, and CR can only offer it to international viewers, a lot of them would have quite a chuckle over NA viewers complaining about a "not licensed for your region" message.


In any event, odd that Viz would announce this on their own site before even a hint of an announcement on CR.
