Me & my friend was watching this short & I've told him all of the accurate locations of Tokyo as well as references to classic anime such as AKIRA!

so this was the "Special anime short" ? Ugh... Adult Swim/Toonami just keeps letting anime fans down. Western cartoon fans I'm sure this is a big treat

@Kougeru


It was pretty cool. I almost miss it messing around watching MTV on american cable here in the states.

Oh shit, sleep starting to keep in on me. Good night or whatever timezone all of you guys are from.

I was a bit "meh" over the initial idea of another Rick & Morty anime short, but I liked the first one that was done by Studio DEEN, so I figured I'd might like this one.

... Turns out I was right. It was pretty fun! And kinda an interesting lead-in to the finale of Paranoia Agent, personally.

I was kinda pissed about this being the "special" of the night but I was happy to see that apparently Sano is actually an actual R&M fan which makes it feel more legit and less like a simple commission work.

Well it was teased in the Toonami Adult Swim Con Commercial and we could definitely tell it was Rick & Morty related.

This was boring and has none of the qualities that make Ricky and Marty what it is. DEEN made a better short. That is unbelievable.

I enjoyed this. It's fun seeing another take/style on an existing franchise. Like those anthology manga volumes featuring a variety of artists original stories for an existing franchise.
