The Simpsons Is Going Anime For An Upcoming Loss of life Notice Tribute
It’s very simple to look again on the final 25 years of The Simpsons and write it off as being garbage as a result of, nicely, for essentially the most half it has been precisely that. However typically, just like the solar shining by for an hour between passing storms, it will probably nonetheless get its shit collectively, and the upcoming tribute to Loss of life Notice seems to be like a type of uncommon events.
It’s a part of the present’s subsequent Treehouse of Horror Halloween compilation, and can give The Simpsons a full anime makeover for one of many episode’s instalments. You possibly can see it in motion on this quick video beneath, which introduces Lisa because the recipient of the Loss of life Notice (or, because it’s known as right here, the Loss of life Tome):

If your first thought was “wow, that looks a lot better than I was expecting”, you are not alone! But there’s a very good reason this looks so authentic to the source material: this segment has been animated by Korean studio DR Movie, who have a long history of helping out behind the scenes on various American and Japanese properties, ranging from The Animatrix to Justice League to, most importantly in this case, the Death Note anime series itself.
The episode will air on October 30, and will be the second of three segments. The other two will be a Babadook homage starring Marge and a Westworld parody. Which is weird, given The Simpsons has already executed a Westworld factor, one which lasted a complete episode and is among the sequence’ all-time greats, however I suppose 1994 was lengthy sufficient in the past (and the trendy HBO sequence so totally different) that they really feel like they will do it another time and newer viewers received’t even discover.
UPDATE: Turns out there’s a VERY long and cool history to this, with its origins dating back to fanart drawn in 2008,as pointed out by Turbotastic in the comments!
