Angry Sponge Bob in Chinese 海绵宝宝


Okay... I can't believe that this is really Sponge Bob Square Pants (海绵宝宝 - hǎi mián bǎo bǎo) speaking in Mandarin. Actually the internet tells me he's speaking Japanese (?) but character subtitles look like Mandarin. Maybe some clever editing and some really morbid vocabulary to learn?

Once you watch you will know what I mean. The cartoon has characters and English translation.

What do you think of this video? Anyone know why this is made? Not exactly for kids....

If you're looking for real kids cartoons in Chinese, you can find links to Sponge Bob Square Pants and Dora the Explorer on that page.

This is a parody or adaptation of Death Note using Spongebob Squarepants. I recognised the story immediately. Death Note is probably one the most popular anime/mangas around. Awesome awesome anime if you time. You should watch it!

 

Besides this being Death Note, it's pretty cool to see it in Mandarin subtitles... with Spongebob! haha

本当にSponge Bobは日本語で話しています。でもかわいくない話。

Indeed Sponge Bob is speaking Japanese. Though it is not a very cute story.

I think it would be more appropriate to say the subtitles are in chinese, because all chinese dialects use those characters, not just mandarin. Not to mention that China mainland use the simplified characters (like in the video) and Hong-Kong, Taiwan and Japan all use the traditional characters.

Cool websites to watch chinese movies, tv series and animes: Baidu (百度), Tudou (土豆) and Youku (优酷). they must have Sponge Bob in chinese. In China mainland, there is also a chinese anime very popular Xi Yang Yang (喜洋洋). They made a movie last year or the year before.
