Attack on Titan, One Piece, Naruto, and….The Simpsons?

The Simpsons’ annual “Treehouse of Horror” aired its 25th installment this past weekend and featured some pretty cool iterations of the cast. From Despicable Me to Archer, various well-known forms of the Simpsons family took to the screen — but one scene in particular grabbed the attention of anime fans everywhere:

 The Simpsons family paid serious tribute to popular anime with Homer as Zoro from One Piece, Marge as Rangiku from Bleach, Bart as Naruto, Lisa as Mikasa from Attack on Titan, Maggie as Pikachu from Pokémon and even Santa’s Little Helper played a part as Haku from Spirited Away!

Synopsis

 

Get ready for latest, full-length feature film in the on-going, pirate epic, One Piece.

Said to be comparable to the Ancient Weapons of old, the Marines’ trump card, the “Dyna Stones,” have suddenly been stolen by a group of renegade vigilantes. The terrifyingly powerful man responsible, former Marine Admiral “Z”, now stands in the path of Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates. Can the Straw Hats defeat “Z” and his crew, or will the New World meet its end at the hands of this mad man?

Next up in our One Piece release arsenal is an Amazon.com Exclusive! Season Six, Voyage One is available exclusively at Amazon.com for a limited time. Order it now, or wait until November 18th for the nationwide release across other retailers.

 

Synopsis

 

Prepare to embark on a horrifying voyage into the heart of darkness!

While drifting through haunted waters, the Straw Hats encounter a ghost ship inhabited by a walking, talking skeleton. Luffy quickly befriends the ghastly newcomer, but the rest of his mates want nothing to do with this panty-obsessed bag of bones. Before the mystery of the seagoing skeleton can be deciphered, the Straw Hats find themselves trapped within the terrifying walls of Thriller Bark! The situation gets even spookier as our heroes encounter invisible fiends, a graveyard of the undead, possessed paintings, and a zombie samurai! To make matters worse, Zoro and Sanji suddenly vanish – and Chopper, Usopp, and Nami get trapped inside a coffin. While his crew flounders in this floating house of horrors, Luffy sets his sights on a showdown with the man behind the madness: the shadow-stealing monster Gecko Moria!

 

Finally, we set sail from the world of One Piece and make our way to Steins;Gate!

FUNimation Fall 2014 Simulcast Season, Part 1

The Fall 2014 Season is fast approaching, and I’m sure you’re wondering what we have in store for you! Well, here’s what we can confirm at this time:

 

One Piece will be continuing in its current time slot.

 

One Piece – Saturdays at 9pm CT/ 10pm ET

 

Monkey D. Luffy is a boy with big dreams. This daring rubber-man refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become king of all pirates. With a course charted for the treacherous waters of the Grand Line, Luffy strikes out in search of a crew – and a boat. Along the way he’ll do battle with scallywag clowns, fishy foes, and an entire fleet of marines eager to see him walk the plank. The stakes are high, but with each adventure, Luffy adds a new friend to his gang of Straw Hat Pirates! Like his hero Gold Roger, this is one captain who’ll never drop anchor until he’s claimed the greatest treasure on Earth – the Legendary One Piece!

Fairy Tail will be continuing in its current time slot.

 

Fairy Tail - Fridays at 9pm CT/ 10pm ET

 

Across the Fiore kingdom, wizards join guilds and make their pay by filling magical needs—but one guild has a reputation as the roughest, rowdiest, most dangerous of all: Fairy Tail!

When four young Fairy Tail members unite, their bond is forged by a power found in neither muscle nor magic and grows stronger with every mission. Whatever you do, don’t mess with these friends or you’ll get a taste of Natsu’s flaming fist or Gray’s ice hammer, suffer a painful blow from one of Lucy’s celestial spirits or catch the edge of Erza’s mighty blade! Whether they’re stopping demons from devastating the world or wrestling in the mess hall, this mystical team manages to inflict as much damage to their rivals as they do to the surrounding area!

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day – Sing Like a Straw Hat

BROOK_thriller bark

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Every year on September 19th we celebrate this international phenomenon that gives us all an excuse to party like pirates; or, in our case, to party like Straw Hats!

 

Of course no pirate is completely without a lively pirate tune to make the long voyages at sea just a little more bearable. So, this year, in honor of the upcoming release of One Piece Season 6, Voyage 1, we’re teaching you all how to sing Binks’ Brew (a.k.a. Binks’ Sake).

 

This song is meant to lift the spirits of those who sing it. Being an old school pirate, Brook knows this song by heart and will sing it every chance he gets. Check out the lyrics below, and sing along with the clip!

 

Lyrics:

Gather up all of the crew, it’s time to ship out Binks’ Brew.

Sea wind blows, to where, who knows? The waves will be our guide.

O’er across the ocean’s tide.. Rays of sunshine far and wide.

Birds they sing, of cheerful things, in circles passing by.

Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…

Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…

Happy New Release Tuesday! We have several releases today for those who might have missed them the first time around, or were waiting for a lower price point before pouncing.

synopsis:

When Luffy and his mates drop anchor at the bizarre island of Long Ring Long Land, they’re challenged to a Davy Back Fight by the fast-talking Foxy Pirates! The Straw Hats are no strangers to squabbles, but the sacred code of pirates decrees that this contest could cost Luffy his crew! Next on the horizon for the Hats, it’s a case of missing memories as everyone but Robin forgets they ever knew each other. Usopp is quick to claim the title of captain, and Zoro does the unthinkable by attacking Luffy! Can Robin recover the crew’s lost recollections before disaster strikes!? She’d better work fast because far greater foes lie ahead, and the Straw Hats will need all hands on deck if they hope to survive the return of Captain Foxy – and the icy arrival of Admiral Aokiji!
