Rick and Morty: The Anime is coming, y'all. If you missed the news, Adult Swim has ordered an entire anime inspired by the hit comedy, and that means Rick is about to take on some wild adventures overseas. Luckily, fans are ready to follow the mad scientist on his journey, but some aren't quite sold on the anime spin-off just yet.
For those needing context, the whole situation came to light today ahead of an upfronts presentation. It was there Warner Bros. Discovery announced Adult Swim has made a series order for Rick and Morty: The Anime. The 10-episode series will expand on the anime shorts previously done for Rick and Morty, and director Takeshi Sano will oversee the project.
As you can see below, the news has taken over social media given how plugged in the Rick and Morty fandom is online. It is no secret that the show's anime shorts are hits, and the latest released earned nothing but praise. Sano's continued role in this full series order has most fans confident Rick and Morty: The Anime will stick to its roots. However, there are some who worry this anime will be too fan-service when it goes live. So for now, netizens will have to wait and see just how Rick and Morty does as it takes on its all-new series.
What do you think of this new Rick and Morty order? Did you ever suspect the show would get a full anime? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.

Pros and Cons
Rick and Morty are going anime.
Idk I kinda think Japanese media should stay independent of western media so we don't ruin what they have going on over there lol.
Manga and anime are crushing western comics. https://t.co/G5RnPZmQ2k— 🏴☠️Nasdorachi🏴☠️ (@Nasdorachi) May 18, 2022
