Adult Swim fans have seen some wild adventures for the Smith family with Rick And Morty's fifth season, introducing characters such as Rick's nemesis Mr. Nimbus, a series of Decoys, Planetina and her Planeteers, and the CHUDs, but it seems that a few fans were introduced to a new adventure early. Amazon Prime Canada apparently leaked an upcoming episode that will see the Cartoon Network juggernaut make fun of the world of anime, which is sure to get the anime community talking with parodies of Voltron and other franchises seemingly in the crosshairs.
According to a report from @CNschedules on Twitter, the seventh episode of the season, "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" (which is also seemingly going to be the episode tackling anime like Voltron as teased in promotional materials), was released through Amazon Prime Video in Canada instead of the fourth episode. It was reportedly long enough for clips of the episode to get out. You can get the details below, but beware of spoilers for this future episode:
Thankfully it won't be too much longer before the seventh episode of Season 5 actually and officially airs as "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" is currently scheduled to air August 1st on Adult Swim at 11:00PM EST. If you wanted to catch up with the season's current four episodes now available, the first episode is now streaming completely for free with YouTube, and the rest of the season's released episodes are streaming on Adult Swim's website with a cable subscription. If you wanted to check out the seasons leading up to all of this, all four seasons of Rick and Morty are now streaming on HBO Max.
The season has now reached its halfway point with the fifth episode coming this next Sunday, July 18th, and thankfully the season won't be broken up into two halves like the season before.
