Not even the karate (or ka-ra-tea) fights between underwater beings had been as brutal as now. Last week, a YouTube user published an unusual transposition that perhaps many did not know they needed until they saw it: the characters and adventures of sponge Bob pure anime style!

Here you will find the one presented as the first chapter of a promising hobby series, titled Sea Bass Bow Bubble. Yes, the one who hid the pickles under his tongue all the time, now a minion of the evil Plankton. The little green being finally manages to steal the secret formula and only a certain square fryer can stop him.

Lasting almost fifteen minutes, the episode is entirely spoken in Japanese, but it has subtitles in English (and even Spanish if activated from the video settings).

The long-awaited episode is here! Watch SpongeBob and his friends fight a boisterous and hostile enemy, while the fate of the secret formula hangs by a thread, « reads the description provided by the channel Narmak, pseudonym of the person in charge of this animation.

By emulating stylistic features, SpongeBob SquarePants: Anime – Ep # 1: Bubble Bass Bow not only adopts formal conventions of the Japanese technique, but also the violence and the tragicomic of the narratives. Still, there are phrases that pay tribute to Nickelodeon’s endearing series, which fans will recognize and appreciate. Special mention that the video is dedicated to the creator Stephen Hillenburg, who died in 2018.

Will there be a second part? There are no certainties, but if we do – considering that the production of this first chapter took six months – we will probably have to wait a long time.

We recently learned that the movie Spongebob to the rescue would rule out its arrival on the big screen to be distributed in streaming. Learn the full story here.
