The Animated ‘Bartkira’ Trailer is Finally Here


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.
