FUNimation has sent out the confirmation today that One Piece will be joining the Toonami block starting on May 18th. The show will premiere at the 1:00am slot and it’ll jump ahead to episode 207 rather than covering material that has been broadcast before, which is a big and welcome surprise.  The folks at Toonami also jumped in on the news to talk about things from their point of view on their popular tumblr blog by stating: “We know we’re skipping ahead a bunch, but we think this is a great place to start- plus, it’ll be in HD! For those of you who are worried you won’t be able to jump in to the story, don’t worry! Go to now and you can watch ALL of the older episodes, plus there are a bunch of cool little video “catch up” pieces for folks who just want the overview. In addition, our friends at Funimation are working on some “orientation/catch up” pieces we’ll be putting on Toonami.”

The line-up as of May 18th will look like this:

12:00 – Bleach
12:30 – (Uncut) Naruto
01:00 – One Piece
01:30 – Soul Eater
02:00 – IGPX
02:30 – Eureka
03:00 – Thundercats
03:30 – Symbionic Titan
04:00 – Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
04:30 – Cowboy Bebop
05:00 – Inuyasha
05:30 – Inuyasha

Series Concept: Monkey D. Luffy refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become the king of all pirates. With a course charted for the treacherous waters of the Grand Line and beyond, this is one captain who’ll never give up until he’s claimed the greatest treasure on Earth: the Legendary One Piece! Fiendish Fishmen, merciless Marines, surly sea monsters, and devious Devil’s Fruit users all try to stop this unusual man with the body made of rubber, but as long as Luffy has his loyal friends along for the adventure – nothing can stand in the way of their dreams!
