July 27th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Hot on the heels of our first look at Rick & Morty season 5(here) comes an all-new anime short – well, eight minutes!

The short, called Rick and Morty vs. Genocider is directed by Tower of God director, Takashi Sano, and in it Morty goes on an adventure to Tokyo, Japan to try and help stop The Genocider. Nothing weird happens.

The short runs for a little over eight minutes in total and was one of the headlining debuts during Adult Swim Con – which is also where we got the glimpse of season 5.

Check it out below and let me know your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
