WispaGoldMS is a voice actress involved with the series. She plays Nami and most other female roles.
Mr. Calm is another voice actor involved with the series. He plays some minor roles, including Cabaji and Fullbody.
History & Production
The first appearance of the series was in March 2010, a trailer that consisted of the opening narration from Episode 1, with a title card at the end saying "Coming Soon...I promise".
Behind the scenes, at this point Uraby210 had already prepared scripts for the first three episodes and was ready to commence production. However, a friend (Munjeej) discovered the project and offered to help with voices and scripting. After reviewing Munjeej's work, Uraby210 appointed him as head under-scriptwriter, and also (at the former's request) cast him as Usopp.
Episode 1 was released on YouTube on April 12th. It covered the first episode of the One Piece animé. Episodes 2 and 3 quickly followed, covering the remainder of the Morgan Arc and the first episode of the Buggy Arc on April 16th and 25th respectively. Episode 3 was the first to feature Munjeej in a speaking role, as the mountain bandit Higuma.
Hiatus and Return
After the script for Episode 4 was prepared and finalised, production ceased for two months whilst Uraby210 moved house and purchased a new computer and microphone. A short video entitled "A Brief Interlude" informed the viewers of these events.
Soon after Uraby210 purchased his new microphone, he uploaded another video entitled "We Are...Back!" which served as both an announcement of the series's return, and a trailer for the forthcoming Episode 4.
Episode 4 was released on June 21st, and it covered the remaining four episodes of the Buggy Arc. It was an important milestone for a number of reasons, since it was not only the first episode to go over YouTube's then-limit of 10 minutes and so had to be split into two parts, but it was also the first full episode to be edited with Adobe Premiere CS5 as opposed to the first three episodes, which had been made with Windows Movie Maker (it was not, however, the first video to be edited with Premiere - that distinction is held by the Episode 4 trailer). Episode 4 was also the first episode to feature Mr. Calm in a speaking role, as Cabaji.
On June 30th 2010, Uraby210's YouTube account was suspended. He responded by creating a new account called "Uraby210Productions". He then re-uploaded Episodes 1 through 4 with added disclaimers at the beginning of every video making it clear that he did not own One Piece or any associated content. He also posted a similar message on his YouTube channel.
To make it clear that he was not to be deterred by such inconveniences, Uraby210 pushed forward with the production of Episode 5, which covered the majority of the Syrup Village Arc. It was eventually released on July 4th, following a trailer a week earlier, which featured the first appearance of Munjeej in his main role as Usopp. However, Episode 5 was beset by problems at the editing stage, which resulted in a noticeable drop in video quality from 12 minutes and 36 seconds in until the end.
Carrying On Regardless
Episode 6, covering the final episode of the Syrup Village Arc, was released on July 18th, but soon after its release, Episodes 1 through 5 were taken down by YouTube. Seeing that it was impossible to re-upload the videos a second time, Uraby210 instead chose to create a DailyMotion account, where he uploaded all 6 episodes, and continues to upload each new episode soon after its YouTube release. However, Episode 4 was rejected by DailyMotion, and is currently the only episode not available to view on that site.
Episode 7, which covered the first episode of the Baratie Arc, was released on July 30th, but its release also saw the removal of Episode 6 from YouTube. By this point, YouTube had raised the video time limit to 15 minutes, so Episode 7 did not have to be split in half like earlier episodes. Episode 7 suffered severe sync issues when uploaded to YouTube. However, the DailyMotion version corrected this.
A special episode, "Ramblings From a Diseased Mind" was uploaded exclusively on YouTube on August 2nd. This consisted of Munjeej's warm-up material and general silliness that he had recorded (in character) in addition to his lines for Episodes 3 through 7 (possibly due to the influence of alcohol).
Episode 8 was released on August 18th. It covered the remainder of the first half of the Baratie Arc and was the first video to exceed YouTube's new limit of 15 minutes, and so had to be artificially sped up by 2%. Whilst this is not very noticable for the most part, it caused some sync issues towards the end of the episode. This effect is not present in the DailyMotion upload, since the limit on that site is 20 minutes, so no edits of that sort had to be made.
Episode 9 was released on September 1st. It covered the second half of the Baratie Arc.
Episode 10 was released in the early hours of September 22nd, after a slight delay in editing. It covered the first thirteen episodes of the Arlong Arc. Like Episode 8, the YouTube version had to be slightly shortened. It was the first episode to receive its premiere on DailyMotion before its premiere on YouTube.
Episode 11 covered the final episode of the Arlong Arc and the first episode of the Loguetown Arc, and was released in the early hours of October 2nd. It featured the return of Mr. Calm in the role of Fullbody (following some acting lessons and bribery).
On October 4th 2010, the Uraby210Productions account was suspended. The series can now be found on Uraby210's Dailymotion account (see above) and a new YouTube account, Uraby210Incorporated. All episodes from 1 to 11 (and the outtakes special) were re-uploaded with slight adjustments in order to fool YouTube's blacklist filter. Unfortunately, FUNimation still pulled Episode 5 Part 1.
Episode 12 was released on October 14th, the first new episode to be uploaded onto the third account. It covered the next two episodes of the Loguetown Arc. Soon after, Toei pulled everything except Episodes 7 and 12. A counter-claim was immediately issued.
Another outtakes special, "The Mind of Munjeej", was released exclusively on YouTube on October 17th.
A trailer for Episode 13, entitled "Meet Tashigi", was released on October 20th.
Episode 13 itself was relesed on October 25th. It covered the first two episodes of the Loguetown Arc proper. So far, it is the shortest episode of the series, at only 8 minutes and 22 seconds in length. This was the first full episode to feature Luffydaman91 as Tashigi (although he had previously appeared in the aforementioned trailer). This was also the first episode to use "Believe" for the opening instead of "We Are!".
All episodes (save for Episode 5 Part 1) were re-instated when the counter-claim expired on November 4th.
Back in the Game...Kind Of
Episode 14, covering the "Daddy Masterson" filler episode, was released on November 21st. This was the first (and so far only) episode to be written by Munjeej and then revised by Uraby210, rather than the other way around (however, Munjeej had previously written a draft script for Episode 6, not all of which was used in the finished video).
Two days later, Episodes 12 and 13 were removed, followed by Episode 14 a day later, resulting in the termination of the account. Counter-claims were then issued.
Since the YouTube account was still down, Episode 15 was released on December 7th, but only on DailyMotion. It covered the "cookery contest" filler episode.
On December 9th, Uraby210 made a fourth account, Uraby210Regenerated, and stated that this would be used solely as a backup account, once the main account came back, and that he would only ever post the newest episode on this account, so that it could never be taken down.
The Uraby210Incorporated account was reactivated on Christmas Day.
Episode 16, covering the final two episodes of the Loguetown Arc, was released on December 27th. This was the first episode to feature Munjeej as Captain Smoker, following a recasting decision made during production of Episode 14.
Four days leter, Uraby210 released a trailer for the upcoming Episode 17, entitled "Apis and the Ericmen", in homage to "Delta and the Bannermen".
On January 9th, Uraby210 uploaded the full version of Episode 5, which had not been available on YouTube since the end of July due to it being pulled by FUNimation. However, the video had to be sped up by 5% to get under YouTube's duration limit, and this is particularly noticeable during the disclaimer and opening.
Episode 17, covering the entirety of the Warship Island Arc, was released on Dailymotion on January 17th, and then on YouTube the following day. This was the first episode to include experimental censor bleeps (on the YouTube release only). This episode served as Uraby210's entry to the January 2011 Abridging Contest. Episode 17 is the longest episode released so far, at 18 minutes and 4 seconds in length.
Episode 18, covering the Laboon Arc, was released on February 20th, two days later than advertised due to editing delays and unavailability of cast for recording of Episode 19, necessitating a reschedule. Episode 18 featured a guest appearance from tonyfinn1, later known as FoulFangedFiend, the creator of Doctor Who Abridged.
Episode 19 was eventually released on March 6th, following delays that had a knock-on effect for the following two episodes. It covered the first three episodes of the Whiskey Peak Arc.
Episode 20, covering the final episode of the Whiskey Peak Arc, was released on March 19th, two days after its advertised premiere.
On March 26th, Uraby210 announced on Twitter that he had begun writing the script for a "super secret special" episode, to be released in April.
Episode 21, covering the "Diary of Coby-Meppo" episodes, was released on April 2, two days after its posted release date. The YouTube release was sped up by 5% to stay under the 15-minute limit, so Uraby210 included a link to the DailyMotion version, which did not suffer from this problem.
On April 12th, the "super secret special" episode was revealed to be the 1st Anniversary Special. It consisted of several short sketches that were supposedly "left out" of earlier episodes. It also contained Martialmichael126's first appearance as Mr 3.
Episode 22, covering the first half of the Little Garden Arc, was released on April 29th. It was the third episode to premiere on DailyMotion before YouTube, following Episodes 10 and 15. It was the first regular episode to feature Martialmichael126 as Mr 3.
Episode 23, covering the second half of the Little Garden Arc, was released on May 15th.
After Episode 24 was released, Uraby210 received a massive influx of subscribers. His subscriber count increased by over 30% in just three days. This was due to purpleeyeswtf liking Episode 24, which showed up in his YouTube activity feed, and some of his 12,000 subscribers decided to take a look.
Episode 25 was released on June 17th, covering the Straw Hats's arrival in the Drum Kingdom. Once again, it featured purpleeyeswtf in the role of Chess.
Episode 26, covering Chopper's introduction and backstory, was originally intended to be released on June 28th, but this proved impossible, due to WispaGoldMS attending the Glastonbury Festival before she had recorded her material for this episode. This forced Uraby210 to move the entire production schedule forwards by a week. purpleeyeswtf was originally intending to appear in this episode, but had to pull out due to real-life commitments. The episode was eventually released on July 6th.
On July 8th, Episodes 18 through 21 were removed from YouTube.
On July 17th, Uraby210 uploaded the Episode 1 Remastered Edition, which was a remake of Episode 1 made to the standard of the most recent episodes. However, four days later this video was removed, resulting in the termination of the account once again.
The account was reinstated on August 20th, but this suspension had caused massive delays to production, and Episode 27 was released on August 25th, almost four weeks after its planned finishing date. This episode featured purpleeyeswtf returning to the role of Chess, and it was originally planned for him to also appear as the None Piece version of Luffy, but only a few days before the episode was finished, he backed out, citing undisclosed issues. It was far too late to re-write the episode to account for his absence, so the only course of action was for Uraby210 to stand in for purpleeyes and record the lines himself. Upon hearing this version of his character, purpleeyeswtf commented that it was "excellent". This episode also featured the first appearance of TemplarKnight2012 as Dalton (or possibly Rassilon), in the beginning of a crossover with Tony Finnegan's Doctor Who Abridged.
On September 15th, Episode 28 was released, which brought the Drum Kingdom Arc to an end.
