WATCH: Rick & Morty new Samurai short is pretty great

March 30th, 2020 by Marc Comments

While we are all pacing the hallways waiting for the return of Rick & Morty and the day when we can all run freely into the streets again, the good folks at Adult Swim are helping out.

A new Rick & Morty short has dropped called Samurai and Shogun and features a badass Rick as a Samurai leaving a bloody trailer behind him… and, since it’s made by anime Studio Deen, it’s even in Japanese.

And did I mention it’s also brilliant?

While we still don’t have a release date for the rest of this season – although hopefully sooner rather than later, given the state of the world right now – if Adult Swim can deliver little gems like this, then the wait may not seen quite as long.

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….
