The Animated 'Bartkira' Trailer is Finally Here


It's about to E-X-P-L-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's been teased for a few months, but the group behind the fan-favorite Bartkira comic gallery project has unveiled a fully animated parody trailer for a fictional movie based on the infamous crossover of The Simpsons and Akira.

The trailer was a collaboration across a number of animators and was done in the style of the original American VHS trailer for the classic anime film. So much so, in fact, that the video even emulates a lot of the VHS artifacting and distortion on video and sound.

If you just happen to be a fan at the nexus between Japanamation and Americanamation, the Bartkira trailer should be a real treat to liven up your Monday morning. Don't delay in watching it, though-- there's no telling whether or not Fox may pull the parody trailer at some point, but in a perfect world, this awesome video would be around forever.
