Conventions 2016 – One Piece Adventures at Matsuricon

Come aboard and bring along all your hopes and dreams for Matsuricon! Funimation is teaming up with Matsuricon to make a treasure-filled experience that celebrates One Piece. See the details below for information on the special panels that we have lined up and the special guests that are coming on the cruise!






One Piece Unplugged | Saturday, August 20th | 12:00pm – 2:00pm | Panel Location: Ballroom 1 & 2

Table read of a One Piece episode with the Funimation cast, moderated by the One Piece Podcast crew!
Join us for an hour and a half with the One Piece cast, as they perform an informal “table read” of one dubbed episode. Some of the cast will play their own roles as they read along in the script, while others will step outside their comfort zones and read characters originally voiced by different voice actors! At the end of the episode, the winner of the Fan Interview Contest hosted online before the event, will have his/her chance to interview the entire cast!
