Someone Made "Spongebob Squarepants" Into Anime And Honestly It's Better

The world is finally ready for SpongeBob anime.

Posted on August 24, 2017, at 12:20 p.m. ET

On Thursday morning, the world woke up to a beautiful thing: an entire anime intro to SpongeBob SquarePants, complete with theme song. It is masterful and pure and you should watch it right now.

We are introduced to all the characters in the trailer, which not only foreshadows an altercation between Mr. Krabs and Plankton, but also has a sword fight between Squidward and Patrick.

An animator who goes by Narmak uploaded their creation to YouTube on Wednesday, and so far it has just under 200,000 views. It should have millions.

Narmak told BuzzFeed News they made the video after thinking about how great an edgy, over-the-top anime opening would work with Spongebob."It took me about a month and a half to make, filled with blood, sweat, tears, and gallons of Mountain Dew," they said. "Seeing as how the internet has propped this video as the messiah of the new world, I might make more anime openings that ruin people's memories for their cherished childhood cartoons. I'm just a meager college student getting by and animation is just a side hobby, so it might take some time for my animations to come out, but when they do I am always proud of the monstrosities I've created."

The video was also ripped and uploaded to Twitter where it really took off. So far it has almost 130,000 retweets.

The whole thing is filled with references, like this letter to Mr. Krabs, asking him if he is "feeling it now."

@marynicolexx "Are you feeling it now Mr. Krabs" 😂

There also appear to be some serious issues between Patrick and Sandy.
