Rick And Morty Short Animated Clip Released By Adult Swim and Studio DEEN

WUBALUBADUBDUB! Rick and Morty is the biggest sensation in the mid-2010s which started many fads such as Pickle Rick and the Schezwan Sauce riots. It dropped its fourth season in December 2019.

Rick and Morty can be seen everywhere in cameos from the Simpsons to commercials such as Pringles, and it looks like Rick and Morty is making an impact on the anime world as well.

AdultSwim, in collaboration with Studio DEEN, recently released a 5-min long animated short in Japanese titled “Samurai & Shogun”. The voice actors from Rick and Morty’s Japanese dub reprise their roles in this short clip.

The short shows a Japanese samurai Rick, Rick WTM-72, on the run after kidnapping “Shogun” Morty. He is intercepted by dozens of ninjas, accompanied by another Rick, who has apparently put a hit out on Rick WTM-72.

Rick, being Rick, takes out a wave of the ninjas with relative ease. At this point, a giant portal opens which releases a human-weapon, which is also killed by Rick.

Rick is then targeted with gas that looks like Fart, a 5-D being once shown in the original series. Rick is hypnotized under the gas’ effect, however, he breaks through at the last moment, splitting all the ninjas around him in half.

Rick WTM-72 is then confronted by the Rick responsible for this attack. In a classic samurai duel sequence, Rick WTM-72 claims victory with the speed of his blade. He then proceeds to walk through a portal, which ends the short.
