Adult Swim hit series Rick and Morty is getting the anime treatment. After directing two anime shorts “Rick and Morty vs. Genocider” and “Summer Meets God (Rick Meets Evil)” based on the long-running series, Japanese filmmaker and visual artist Takashi Sano will adapt the series into Rick and Morty: The Anime. The show, which has been ordered by Adult Swim, will have ten episodes.
“The multiverse-straddling exploits of Rick and the gang pose challenges to the family bond, but they always rise to the occasion,” Sano said in a statement. “It’s such a life affirming sight, and Jerry is no exception.” He adds, “I am honored to have been given an opportunity to tell a new story about this amazing family. I hope you enjoy their adventures!”
Also in the Adult Swim anime round-up is Ninja Kamui from director Sunghoo Park.
“Toonami helped introduce anime to a U.S. audience 25 years ago, and is creating new, dynamic originals for the next generation of anime fans,” said Adult Swim president Michael Ouweleen in a statement. “These two series build on the legacy of those recent originals such as Fena: Pirate Princess, Blade Runner: Black Lotus, Shenmue the Animation, with Uzumaki and Housing Complex C, premiering later this year.”
Currently in production, Rick and Morty: The Anime and Ninja Kamui premiere on Adult Swim and HBO Max.
