One Piece English dubs have always lagged behind the release of the subbed episodes. One Piece fans have to wait a long time to catch up on the dubbed episodes. But you would probably jump with joy to learn that it’s just a matter of time before the dub episodes catch on in the subs.
The One Piece anime debuted in 1999, while the dubbed episodes began their run in 2004. This five-year gap existed for a good amount of time. But the growing popularity of One Piece reduced this gap as makers started working round the clock to release dubbed episodes on time.

As of 2023, the gap between the subs and the One Piece dub is less than 3 years. With every passing month, the gap is reducing, and we expect that by the end of 2023, One Piece English Dubs will be released simultaneously with subtitles.
Will One Piece Dub catch up to the subs by the end of 2023?
Fans desire to know if they can expect the One Piece dub to release simultaneously with the subtitles. Let us go back to 2022. Crunchyroll released a total of 156 English-dubbed episodes. In other words, 13 dubbed episodes were released every month in 2022.
The subs were released at a slower pace—46 episodes throughout the year, or just 3–4 episodes per month. So you can see clearly that One Piece Dub is being released at a very fast pace.
The 131-episode difference between the episode formats doesn’t sound significant due to the fast pace of the dub release.
Will One Piece English dubs release simultaneously with subs in 2024?
If the current rate of subs and dubs remains constant, then we can expect that dubs will reach episode 1070 by 2023’s end. Due to the slow pace, the sub wouldn’t go past episode 1093. So by January/February 2024, fans can surely expect One Piece English Dubs to release simultaneously with Subs.
Many of you might be brimming with joy to hear this update. There’s quite a gap between the dub and the sub-episodes these days. Most anime tend to release their dub episodes without much delay. So there was no reason why the One Piece dub would be delayed so much.
Watch One Piece dub or with subs on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
