Anime Devours the Last of Mankind in This Hilarious Short
From Naruto to Dragonball Z to Attack on Titan, we’ve all lost friends to the dark pull and haunting allure of anime.
What used to be unspeakably nerdy is now totally acceptable to mainstream society. While we used to have to hide our endless hours of playtime in MMOs like Final Fantasy XIV or our geeky addiction to anime like Attack on Titan, nowadays, both hobbies have joined the mainstream.
However, as one young person after another falls into the deep clutches of nerd culture, there stands the last bastion of dudebros who refuse to succumb, as their friends did before them, to anime. This is the hilarious premise behind a recent video by YouTuber Flashgitz. Featuring references to popular anime like Naruto and One Piece, the animated short handily rips on both sides of the anime divide with equal ridicule.
Clearly inspired by the animation style of Rick and Morty, the short also shares the crude sense of humor and penchant for pop culture jokes that the Adult Swim hit does.
As their former friends cluster around the walled city shouting out catchphrases and recommendations, a few brave dudebros stand united and remain steadfast in their hatred of anime. However, their false sense of security and fragile male egos are about to be shattered like the walls of their home.
As they fall one by one to the allure of hentai, Dragonball Z, and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, the lone survivor gives in to the greatness of anime at last. Skewering dudebro culture and what’s cool or uncool to like in the first place, this video will have anime fans and those who don’t get the hype chuckling knowingly together.
Unfortunately, as the age is video restricted, you’ll have to watch it on YouTube, but the embedded video above should get you there one way or the other. You can also check out the video via this link.
