I was happy to see that Crunchyroll was gonna start streaming One Piece, but then I realised that you won't be streaming it for people in sweden (Dat feel when europe)

But I hope we'll be able to in the near future,
Though there are still a ton of anime that must be available for us soon! A TON! we are paying the same goddamn money

The US already has a million ways to watch this anime! And you can't even give us in the UK one way to watch this show? Great news for the US i guess well done guys one more place to watch the same show you can watch anywhere else but no joy for the UK sad sad day.

What does that even mean? You live in the US you have no idea what it's like you get every single simulcast handed to you on a silver platter an you have a million choices of where to go. While here in the UK our simulcasts are getting better this is still frustrating i don't expect you to understand.

Good for Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Latin America but thats still a tiny percentage of Crunchyrolls user base.

*Looks at calendar*

OK, it's not April Fool's Day which can only mean one thing--the universe imploded. Yep, I'm going with the universe imploded or someone divided by zero.

I guess it's going to take me at least 2 years if not longer for me to catch up lol. I remember watching the crappy 4Kids dub years ago and I hated it. I guess I'll finally have a proper introduction to the most popular manga and anime in Japan lol.

I wonder just how long it will take them to post all 616 episodes and counting because not even Funimation has all of the episodes up for streaming.

Happy Halloween everyone! We're hot off the heels of our manga launch, but just because we love you guys, we wanted to give you yet another surprise!

Remember all those requests?


Well, we listened!

You guys have no idea how hard it's been to not spill the beans about this, and truly, it's been fun watching everyone guess what that lineup box was going to be. But FINALLY, after YEARS of blood, sweat, tears, and countless emails and negotiations, we can announce that One Piece is coming to Crunchyroll!


Starting THIS Saturday, November 2, Crunchyroll will be simulcasting One Piece at 7pm Pacific Daylight Time with episode 619, for both Premium AND Free members! This means that right after the episode ends in Japan, YOU get to see it! All previous episodes will be also be available on Crunchyroll at a later date.

One Piece will be available to Crunchyroll audiences in the following territories: USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America.

I'm sure most of you already know just how big this is, but just in case you're new to the series, here's why you should watch:

The king of anime is here! Consistently one of the top-ranked manga and anime series in Japan, One Piece finally makes its way to Crunchyroll! A colorful, fun-filled adventure with a delightful cast that has been amazing viewers for over 10 years now, One Piece sets sail on the high seas with Monkey. D. Luffy as he and his crew, the Straw Hat Crew, search for the ultimate treasure, One Piece.

Currently in its 16th season, the Punk Hazard arc, the Straw Hat Crew find themselves heading to the island of Punk Hazard answering a distress call originating from there. Once ashore, they discover an ex-navy scientist, Caesar Clown, performing experiments on children. Teaming up with the prisoners on the island, Luffy and his crew attempt to stop Caesar and his henchman once and for all.


Now let the rejoicing commence! Maybe over at the awesome CR One Piece group run by one of our lovely Support Staff, starry!



PUT EPISODE 1-618 TOO! I DEMAND! HAVEN"T SEEN IT YET AND I HATE COMMERCIALS!!!!! SO CR IS MY ONLY SOURCE BECAUSE I PAY!

Relax, I understand you, LATAM is still growing and I'm happy we got One Piece but UK still got more stuff, they got more options to get anime, manga too! I'm from Mexico and didn't get CR manga service! but you did! and I do understand how you feel, but honestly don't complain that hard to CR and staff since there are a lot of us that have limited choices, sometimes just 1 (Crunchyroll), just relax

I'm not complaining really i love crunchyroll they're great but it's annoying that the US who already have loads of places to watch One Piece along with a few other countries. Where as here in the UK we have no where in to watch it in the UK legally apart from buying overpriced DVD's from MangaUK which i wouldn't mind paying for but i don't know if i even like the show because i don't like watching anime illegally i want to support the industry but so far it seems Crunchyroll either refuse or are unable to come to some sort of agreement with MangaUk who don't even have a streaming service so essentially MangaUK are hoarding there licences and sticking there tongues out at consumers if this really is MangaUK blocking CR i'm more angry at them then CR.

KAZE have anime on demand but lets not get started on that train wreck.

The latest Alexa rankings put UK visits to CR at 4.7% of traffic.

Australia, Brazil, Peru, and Venuzeula alone total 7.4%, so if they are "a tiny percentage", what does that say about the UK?

The U.S comes in at 41.7% (and is the only country in double digits), so why would CR not get a oft-requested series for the United States?

Unless you believe CR has some special grudge against the UK, it is more reasonable to believe that CR simply couldn't obtain the license for the UK (at least at this time).

You ever think the reason your precious country in the US gets the most traffic because it has the most content(and a much bigger population)? Hmmm that's an interesting idea isn't it? The UK anime and now Manga selection is great i love crunchyroll they give me enough (but not as much as the US) 4.7% considering the size of the UK is quite a large amount of people.

Have you seen the Drama selection in the UK? It's below pitiful.

I already put my point across i'm frustrated because they lorded this as a massive announcement even though it isn't because as i said you guys in the US have gosh knows how many places to watch this show. So they jump through all these hoops to get a show for a population (the US) who already can access it elsewhere instead of trying to come to an arrangement with whoever owns the UK and other EU streaming rights. Not to mention the other 170 countries Crunchyroll serves.

Like i said above if this really is MangaUK blocking this content on Crunchyroll i'm angry angry at them because MangaUK don't even have a streaming service which means essentially they're hoarding all these licenses in the UK an sticking there tongues out at consumers.

Oh yeah 7.4% is a massive amount for those countries COMBINED. Australia is 1.8% of Crunchyroll's traffic that means here in the UK more then twice the amount of people visit the site. Your stats mean nothing my original statement remains true. Another fun thing if you add ireland to the UK that's 6.8% we're not far behind those 4 countries you listed.

Yes, just on the Latin American countries that Alexa displays:
Mexico 2.9%, Venezuela 0.9%, Brazil 2.2%, Chile 2.1%, Peru 2.5% totals 10.6%, while UK/Eire totals 6.7%.

And of course the only thing that Crunchyroll can do if UK rights are not available is either take if in the countries where it is available, or refuse to take it unless UK rights are included.

How would UK members benefit if Crunchyroll refused to do the deal because the UK is not included? Indeed, since fair's fair, how would UK members benefit if Crunchyroll said they wouldn't sign any deals unless Latin America were included?

Making those demands would mean less anime for everybody.
