No news, just SpongeBob.

eta 4/19: Detailed report of the recording @ mtvjapan. Note the little SpongeBobs in Fumiya’s shirt pockets. Also, NHK教育, the channel that airs the Japanese SpongeBob, is available on Keyhole right now. I hope it’ll stay! The show airs Wednesdays at 19:00 (Japan time). I actually enjoy SpongeBob ok

The episode that RS5 is guest starring in is called “SpongeBob vs The Big One.” I saw it last night (original english obviously), not knowing that it was the episode that their characters would be on. It’s also the episode where Johnny Depp guest stars. The articles on their appearance were NOT kidding about Ilmari and Fumiya. They practically have no lines at all. Actually, Fumiya’s character’s original name is “Silent Stan.” :p They only speak when the whole group has lines together. Go to the official site for a short clip specifically of the five surfers in english. Just click on “instant replay.” Hurry while it lasts!

Basically, SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward get caught up in a huge wave and are washed ashore on a random island. Pes and the others greet them, with Pes agreeing to help SpongeBob and Patrick learn how to surf so that they can get back to Bikini Bottom. Pes pretty much speaks the entire time, and if it’s not him, it’s Su. Ryo-Z’s character was coughing whenever he was up. SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward are a lost case for Pes though, so he suggests that they go to some cove to learn from JKL (Johnny Depp), a surfing legend. The gang appears again at the very end, playing music to celebrate SpongeBob’s safe return. They might play original music by the boys in the Japanese version, who knows? It’s rather fitting that Pes is the lead because he loves surfing. His profile on the official RS5 site says that his personal goal is to be able to ride out a 10 foot wave. :D~ Pes’s character’s name was originally Twitch, meaning he has a twitching problem LOL. I hope I can see Pes act it out! It was pretty funny in the original rofl. Not gonna lie, the chances of the Japanese dub making it online are very slim. :<

53 days left until the new album! Well, that’s still kinda alot of time left. Maybe now’s not the right time for a countdown… just know that they’re working on it right now. I think Ryo-Z and Pes are supposed to air RS5’s version of the SpongeBob theme in full on Monday’s Rip Locks…or they’re just going to talk about it. :) Sorry that I didn’t have any actual news. Next time hopefully! PEACE
