Samus Leaps into Action in Thrilling Fan-Made Anime Short
posted on by Eric Stimson
Although the Metroid series has had a manga adaptation (unavailable overseas), Nintendo's fearsome space bounty hunter has never starred in an anime series of her own. A recently released anime short, simply titled "Metroid: Short Animation," has made fans hungry for more.
The anime is the work of Rabbit MACHINE, an independent Japanese animator who also produced a longer short this year promoting the History Department at Kobe Women's University. Rabbit MACHINE's signature fluid motion is also on display in Onigiri Musume ("Ogre-Slicing Girl," 2014).
