Get schwifty, Rick and Morty fans as Adult Swim announced a new anime spin-off of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s Rick and Morty. Adult Swim has roped in director Takashi Sano of Tower of God fame for the anime series, Rick and Morty: Anime, which will feature ten episodes, according to reports.
Takashi Sano is not new to the world of Rick and Morty. He has already directed two anime shots: Rick and Morty vs. Genocider and Summer Meets God. The shorts are huge hits raking in millions of views on Adult Film.
As far as the plot and narrative of the anime series go, it will be based on the original work but still will be a standalone series.
Hollywood reported quoted Sano as saying, “The multiverse-straddling exploits of Rick and the gang pose challenges to the family bond, but they always rise to the occasion. It’s such a life-affirming sight, and Jerry is no exception. I am honored to have been allowed to tell a new story about this amazing family. I hope you enjoy their adventures!”
Rick and Morty chronicles the adventures of an aging alcoholic, cynical scientist, and his naive grandson, who travel through galaxies and dimensions using a portal gun. Five seasons of the series are already out, and it is renewed for another season. The animation series is also streaming on Netflix.
