Last April, Rick and Morty went “full anime” in the short “Samurai & Shogun”, written and directed by Kaichi Sato (link below). This weekend, the unlikely duo went on a similar adventure in “The Genocider” by Tower of God director Takashi Sano.
“The Genocider” is produced by Sola Entertainment and animated at Telecom Animation Film. Give it a spin below.
After having been missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez suddenly arrives at daughter Beth’s doorstep to move in with her and her family. Although Beth welcomes Rick into her home, her husband, Jerry, isn’t as happy about the family reunion. Jerry is concerned about Rick, a sociopathic scientist, using the garage as his personal laboratory. In the lab, Rick works on a number of sci-fi gadgets, some of which could be considered dangerous. But that’s not all Rick does that concerns Jerry. He also goes on adventures across the universe that often involve his grandchildren, Morty and Summer.
Rick and Morty was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.
