Did Rick & Morty Confirm Fan Theory in Tokyo?

Anime Video

Ever since making its TV debut back in 2013, animated sci-fi sitcom Rick and Morty has been taking audiences on a wild ride through infinite realities and alternate dimensions where anything is possible and nothing is what it seems.

Recently, however, eccentric mad scientist Rick and his 14-year-old grandson Morty — inspired by Doc Brown and Marty McFly from the Back to the Future franchise — have taken their adventures to some more familiar settings in a number of animated shorts uploaded to the Adult Swim YouTube channel. One of these shorts saw them dueling it out as samurai characters in old Japan, and now the duo have traveled to the bustling capital of Tokyo in the present day, with a whole lot of anime and pop culture references thrown into the mix.

Anime fans will spot allusions to classics like Dragon Ball and Akira, while Rick and Morty fans will be picking their jaws up off the floor as the video appears to confirm a fan theory.
