This was amazingly well put together. It nails the pacing and direction of a typical action anime, and hits all the expected beats.

And oh. My. God. That spot-on generic-rock OP. (Though these days most anime seem to have horrifyingly awful screamo OPs.)

How about as a card game? Have you ever imagined Sponge Bob Square Pants as a cards, in your hand? Now, it's a reality -- all the waiting is over, SpongeBob Fluxx is here!

I was SO CERTAIN this was a dupe, but somehow, incredibly, it’s not.

I've always had a well-cultivated distaste for SBSP. But, this was definitely good for a laugh.

Quite a long time ago, in my more chemically-assisted days, a friend asked me why I immediately turned off the TV whenever Spongebob came on. My answer:

...because it makes me feel like I'm losing my mind on a random Wednesday morning, just because I changed the channel and got ambushed by evil.

I've seen enough SpongeBob to know where this is going.

I've only watched maybe a dozen anime and even fewer episodes of SpongeBob, and yet I say Bravo!

Technically, everything is either Seinen Anime or Keinen Anime
