Rick & Morty’s Samurai Short

Rick & Morty’s Samurai Short

Rick & Morty may be on hiatus but here’s a little something to keep you going.

Half of the latest season of Rick & Morty has already broadcast towards the end of last year. The show is now on an extended hiatus. We eagerly await the second half which is due to air sometime later this year.

In the meantime, this six minute short recently dropped on the official Adult Swim YouTube channel, the home for all things Rick & Morty. The story is a straight-up traditional samurai tale but features our favourite, unhinged Grandpa and grandson combo.

The short was created by Studio Deen who is behind anime such as the Junji Ito Collection and Ranma 1/2. There is no English dialogue but don’t worry it’s fully subtitled. Beware though, it is very violent.

Rick & Morty is expected to return to its scheduled programming later in the year.
