‘Rick and Morty’ releases samurai-themed short film

The return date of the second half of Rick and Morty season 4 has not been released yet. However, a new short film has premiered to provide us a little bit of non-canon content to keep us going.

Samurai & Shogun, which was made by Studio Deen (The Seven Deadly Sins, Junji Ito Collection), is a Lone Wolf and Cub tribute that sees Rick (dubbed Rick WTM-72 here) fighting off an army of samurai doppelgangers.

The short utilizes 3D animation, and Rick and Morty are played by Yohei Tadano and Keisuke Chiba, the same voice actors who play the characters in the show’s Japanese dub. Tadano even does Rick’s burp.

There are plots of blood spraying and anime/samurai movie tropes to look out for in the short.

Watch it below.
