“Soon may an anime come that we can all agree upon.” — An Anime-Inspired Sea Shanty

Sea Shanties have been all the rage lately, and even if they’ve died down in the way that so much of internet culture quickly does, I still love them. Thus, I wrote an anime sea shanty, and I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

I’ve been known to do things like this before, what with my “To Ship or Not to Ship” parody from Hamlet and my shipping version of “My Favorite Things” from Mary Poppins. This time, I’m on trend!

Well, like I said, maybe not anymore, but I love me a good “Wellerman” sea shanty. 🙂

There shall be a season (soon to be)
With shows that will work for you and me
The offered there be all quite rare
Shows, my friendos, shows

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

The fighting scenes will be at fore
And not one ship will prove a bore
Comedy, romance, action, more
For this our faith we’ll stow

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

Before the show could be on offer
Licensors would need some fodder
Support creators, copyright coffers
Will we see the show?

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

No dub was cast, no platform held
The hopes of the weebs were o’erselled
We licked our wounds and then we yelled
This season really blows

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

Arguments like e’er seen before (ooh)
O’re single seasons and two-cour
Broke out amongst the weebs once more
And still no license, no

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

As far as I know, we’re waiting still
We’ll get that show, oh yes, we will
The licensors make a newer call
Responding to the will of their fans, et al.

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go

Soon may an anime come
That we can all agree upon
One day, when the airing is done
We'll all review and go


The background music came from ZEDWON GUITAR who posted a karaoke track on YouTube. ✨🏴‍☠️✨⚓✨🔱

Until next time, go sing some sea shanties! No, I’m kidding. Well, I’m not kidding, but I meant to say…

…stay home when you can, wear a mask when you can’t, wash your hands, and stay safe!
