If you’re ready to dive into the magical World of Pirates, get on board with Thousands Sunny. One Piece is one of the legendary shounen series adored by millions of fans across the globe. It is still weekly airing with over 1031 episodes. Last year, the significant platforms made some major amendments to their library, and till then, many fans have been facing the same issue of where & how to watch One Piece in English dub.
However, before proceeding with this question, let’s concentrate on the most popular anime platform, i.e., Crunchyroll. So, here we have come up with the answer to one of the most asked questions: “Does Crunchyroll have One Piece English dub?”
The answer to the question: No, Crunchyroll only has the English sub version of all One Piece episodes. It is the world’s best platform when we consider watching the latest episodes of One Piece, but the catch is that Crunchyroll has the license to broadcast the anime only in the original Japanese version.
But the best part is fans can watch the latest episodes of One Piece on the same day of release every week on Crunchyroll. Now, jump to the first question, “where & how can we watch One Piece in English dub online?” Later in this post, we discussed the answer to this question along with a new guide regarding Crunchyroll & other sites. So, let’s dive deep into it.
Does Crunchyroll have One Piece English dub?
No, Crunchyroll only has episodes of the One Piece anime series in the English sub version or the original Japanese audio. Crunchyroll is the best platform to watch the latest episode of One Piece every Sunday, but those who wish to watch the English dub version should jump to the other official platforms like Funimation.
One Piece began airing in October 1999 and is still ongoing in both anime and manga. There are 1058 chapters as of August 2022 and 1031 episodes. Currently, the story has concluded one of its most hyped arcs, the Wano Arc.
The animation, battle choreography, and OSTs are insane and do justice to Oda’s artwork. Therefore, if you absolutely cannot wait, simply head over to Crunchyroll and watch the series in the English sub.
