Prior this year, Rick and Morty extended its effectively boundless multiverse significantly further with an anime short called Samurai and Shogun. Delivered by Japanese studio Deen Digital, the scene was formally advanced by Adult Swim, which drove us to think about how new endeavors like this could affect the primary Rick and Morty show pushing ahead.
What we didn’t expect was a second anime scene that affirms some significant fan speculations while perpetually changing how we see Rick and Morty simultaneously. It truly doesn’t get more schwifty than that.
The short being referred to was created by Deen Digital by and by, this time with Tower of God’s Takashi Sano on coordinating and screenwriting obligations. Rick and Morty versus Genocider may just be a little more than eight minutes in length, however, it packs more pearl-gripping minutes into its runtime than maybe some other scene yet. Look at the anime underneath completely, and afterward, stop for a second to take it all in.
Recovered yet? We’d bet a thousand shackles you’re confused by what’s just happened, and we were too at first, but a few rewatches make things clearer.
In summary, Rick C-137 (our Rick) is being hunted by Evil Morty and the Citadel of Ricks. Posing as a group called the Genociders, they’re destroying life itself by changing people’s memories, which in turn, shape reality. Morty goes to Japan in search for Rick, and notices that Tokyo’s citizens are disappearing at an alarming rate.
Morty soon finds Rick, who explains that this “genocider” technique has been developed using a substance excreted by alien parasites (which sounds an awful lot like the same species as Mr Poopybutthole). In an uncharacteristic moment of kindness, Rick reassures Morty that they’ll soon be reunited, and gives him a special potion which will turn his grandson into a “Rip Van Winkle” of sorts.
The discussion closes with Rick tending to Morty as “Rick Sanchez” before taking off to turn out to be “Super Rick” and battle the Citadel. After he apparently passes on mid-fight, Rick re-visitations of insult Evil Morty and reveal to him that “his timetable sucks,” which goes some approach to clarifying why Evil Morty sucks so far as well.
However, we should return to what Rick said when he bade Morty goodbye. As Rick called Morty by his own name, Rick’s appearance additionally covered Morty’s face. Does this imply Rick and Morty are really a similar individual?
Toward the finish of the scene, Rick gets a telephone message from Jerry revealing to him that Morty has quite recently been conceived. Rick at that point takes a beverage from his flagon and puts down Morty’s elixir bottle. The mixture gives Morty the entirety of Rick’s recollections up until the second Morty was conceived, and thusly, this changes reality, transforming Morty into Rick C-137 while time itself movements to the hour of Morty’s introduction to the world.
What’s more, we thought the Space Beth stuff was confounded!
Essentially, this all implies Morty should now experience an amazing remainder as Rick, and it’s presumably sheltered to state he has probably a few recollections left of his time as a youthful Morty.
For a show that doesn’t care for time travel, the effect of this time circle is genuinely seismic, clarifying the majority of Rick and Morty’s greatest secrets in a single singular motion.
Fans have since quite a while ago speculated that Rick and Morty may in truth be a similar individual, yet this scene goes past simply affirming that, tossing in various other game-changing disclosures as well.
At the core of all the brokenness in the Smith family lies the cool hard reality that Rick wasn’t there for Beth long before Morty was conceived. This wind could clarify why that may be the situation, since that time didn’t really occur because of the moving impact of Morty’s own recollections on the real world. That may likewise clarify why Rick is hesitant to discuss the image where he holds infant Morty…
Still with us? Another ramifications is that Rick’s jar was never loaded up with alcohol, or possibly, not constantly. Passing by what occurs in this short, it appears to be that Rick is really dosing himself with the mixture to keep up his Rick structure and recollections without returning to Morty.
And afterward there’s Evil Morty as well. Where did he originate from? Once more, nothing is affirmed precisely, however it appears to be completely conceivable that Evil Morty originates from a course of events where he didn’t change into Rick. Maybe his general objective is to break the cycle and prevent Morty’s from turning into Rick’s over the multiverse?
