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…

FUNimation adds Ender Box for Attack on Titan Part 2 Limited Edition

AOT part 2 ender box

 

When we unveiled our exclusive Attack on Titan, Part Two Collector’s Edition configuration a little while ago the biggest demand we heard from fans was a request for the Ender Box to also be included in the Limited Edition release. The Ender Box is a hard chipboard box that can house both your Part One and Part Two Limited Edition releases (see image above).

 

Well, you asked and we listened. There are now TWO Attack on Titan, Part Two Limited Edition listings available in our Shop for fans. One will include the Ender Box, for those fans who want the chipboard box to hold their Limited Edition releases, and one without the Ender Box. Please note that the addition of the Ender Box will increase the price of the Limited Edition set slightly. Click here to get Attack on Titan, Part Two PLUS Box.

 

We always strive to provide the best for our fans, and thanks to your feedback, we are pleased that we will now be able to offer you this alternative listing. Attack on Titan, Part Two will be available on Sept. 23rd.
