Watch: What if Rick and Morty had an Anime Intro?
Rick and Morty may have been picked up for 70 more episodes by Adult Swim, but we don’t know when the fourth season is going to premiere at all. The show still maintains its cult status on the internet however, and Malec on Youtube gives us this hilarious Rick and Morty anime opening.
Just in case you didn’t know, this was the same account that gave Game of Thrones its own hilarious anime intro, and not only does the video contain some topnotch animation, but the song used also seems to be an original one; it does have homages to the original Rick and Morty theme though.
If you’re also curious, someone in the comments has even gone so far as to translate the lyrics, and it sounds like some weird romance between a kid and his grandpa (much like Rick and Morty in a way). Here’s the translation:
Before I've met you I thought
I was a normal kid
Now I've learnt how to be dirty
I thought that you hate me, but
you've always protected me, right?
Now I know that if you hurt me I'm going to get stronger
If I'm alive, if I'm dead, I want to always
love you, can I? Tell me, there's no age for love
It's warm inside
Do you feel it, there's plenty of love
I want to always be close to you
Do you feel it, come on grandpa, let's go
It might be a while before we can catch Rick and Morty back in the air, but hopefully everything comes together by next year. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have been doing amazing work with the show, and I can’t wait on what more sci-fi hijinks they have planned for everyone’s favorite multiverse-hopping duo.
No release date has been set, but we can catch Rick and Morty 4 in Adult Swim.
