During this James Gunn matter, Rick and Morty get their hands dirty.

Nothing beats a weekend for calming the tensions and reestablishing some “normalcy.” Unfortunately, as we discovered earlier today, it also lulls you into a false feeling of security and safety. 

Because just as things appeared to be quiet on the creator of the Rick and Morty/Peacemaker series front, Gunn brought us back to reality with new evidence from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 & The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which finds Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s dimension-hopping duo looking to get their hands dirty at this point. 

Mr. Meeseeks, Squanchy, Mr. Poopybutthole, and even Snowball are no more. No, this time, it is none other than Morty himself who has taken up residence on Gunn’s video feed stand. 

And, judging on Morty’s expression, he would feel “very horrible” if “an accident occurred at such a fine manufacturing firm as yours, Mr. Gunn… if you understand what I mean.” 

On the other hand, Gunn has no idea who is behind it or what message they are attempting to communicate. Again, it’s either Rick and Morty are oblivious to the fact that other “galactic guardians” are receiving all of the attention (and box office revenue), or someone is attempting to get Gunn to write and direct an episode of the Adult Swim series (and we’re all in on the latter).

Here’s a look at what Gunn shared earlier today, followed by a breakdown of the present state of the “case file”:

Rick and Morty: Tales from Other Worlds

The Great Yokai Battle of Akihabara, directed by Masaru Matsumoto (Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars) and produced by Sola Entertainment, follows Rick to develop the greatest AI toaster until a trip to Akihabara for spare parts takes a strange turn for our dimension-hopping couple. Consider screws. 

Now, let us examine The Great Yokai Battle of Akihabara, followed by four previously published shorts:

The anime short Rick and Morty vs. Genocider is directed by Takashi Sano (Tower of God), produced by Sola Entertainment, and drawn by Telecom Animation Film.

It follows Morty on an expedition to Tokyo, Japan, in an attempt to stop “The Genocider.” And, sure, it is beautiful, emotional, and has some very bizarre events:

Sano returned with the new short Summer Meets God (Rick Meets Evil) (produced by Sola Entertainment and drawn by Telecom Animation Film) — following up on his previous short, Rick & Morty vs. Genocider. Here’s a peek at the latest short, which has an unexpected focus on Summer and Jerry:

“Samurai & Shogun,” directed and written by Kaichi Sato, see Rick WTM72 (Yohei Tadano) and Shogun Morty (Keisuke Chiba) in a Lone Wolf and Cub-themed universe. 

A vicious squad of Ninja Ricks is not about to relinquish control of Shogun Morty without a battle — an option that Rick WTM72 is more than happy to accommodate. Following that, we take a look at the follow-up short, Samurai and Shogun Part 2:

In the spirit of Kaichi Sato’s Samurai & Shogun and Takeshi Sano’s Rick & Morty vs. Genocider, here’s a look at Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine– where even the “Rick-mobile” can prove lethal– where you’ll wonder, as we do, why Scary Terry isn’t a downloadable character for a fighting game like Mortal Kombat: Ultimate.
