WATCH: Fan creates anime version of ‘Game of Thrones’
“Game of Thrones” fans might have to wait a year or two for the show’s eighth and final season to return on television, but perhaps they’ll settle with an anime version instead.
Last month, HBO teased an upcoming animated re-telling of the vast history of George R.R. Martin’s iconic “A Song of Fire and Ice,” but one exuberant fan took it a notch higher—by coming up with a Japanese manga-inspired animation of the hit series.
Uploaded by YouTube user “Malec,” the one-and-a-half minute clip featured an action-packed, anime version of the show’s opening credits, complemented by a spirited Japanese theme song.
The show’s immense popularity has paved the way for multiple fan-made contents in the past, but Malec’s version captured the show’s best scenes from the it’s recently concluded season.
His impressive portrayal of the show’s prominent characters was quite a spectacle to watch as well.
As of this writing, the video sits on over half-a-million views on the video-sharing platform. /ra
