The weekend came with a lot of great reveals, and while we don’t have a release date for the next season of Rick and Morty yet, we do have a first look at an anime spinoff based on the show.
We don’t have a story for the anime yet, but if you watch Rick and Morty, there’s a good chance we’re going to get the same sci-fi shenanigans with just an anime twist. While it does look like Rick, Morty, and the rest of the Smith family will be appearing in the show, it does seem that the series is also going to be introducing some new characters who are specific to the anime.
This isn’t the first time the series has spun-off into anime either. A few years back, we also got the short Rick and Morty vs. Genocider which probably gives us a good idea of what to expect from the show.
Despite the anime branding, the show does have a very unique look compared to other mainstream anime, and it does incorporate some character designs from the original series. With the original show having made some parodies of anime, it’s going to be interesting to see just how the anime is going to tell its story. Is it going for the same level of meta? Or will it rely solely on sci-fi/visual adventures?
No release date has been set for Rick and Morty: The Anime, but we should expect the show to premiere on Adult Swim sometime later this year.
