We grew up watching plenty of cartoons throughout the 90s and early 00s, so this fan-made trailer for a Bloodborne animated series is a double-whammy of wow. Artist Anthony Berardo has created the above video, and we're kind of blown away.
Firstly, it's pretty staggering how perfectly Bloodborne translates to a Cartoon Network-esque style. All the creepy characters and bosses you know and love look amazing here, and we can imagine it being one of those TV-for-kids-but-really-it's-for-the-parents shows. Secondly, the art style is absolutely spot on. The video description cites Genndy Tartakovsky as a big inspiration, one of the people who spearheaded shows like Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory. This trailer apes that look pretty much perfectly.
We're not the only ones who are infatuated with this, either; the clip has garnered a lot of attention, on Twitter in particular, racking up tens of thousands of likes.
What do you think about this? Would you watch a Bloodborne cartoon in this style? Fear the old blood and all that in the comments section below.
That looks so good! If I had no idea what a Bloodborne was and told me this was Genndy Tartakovsky's new show on something like Adult Swim, I would believe you!
I stopped reading once you announced that you grew up in the 90s and have gone to bed feeling old and depressed....oh great and now I've wet myself...
The Genndy animation style from Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Micro Series was one of my highlights as a 90s/2000s kid. This looks utterly amazing. Would love a series of shorts.
Watch these dudes be the next Ember Labs; throws out their animation and a few years later has a game come out.
@Integrity What kind of wet 😏
@HotGoomba the kind that if left untreated could become a pure source of ammonia for future generations to mine.
While this is cool I never got on with that Cartoon Network style look. Maybe because I was poor and my family only had terrestrial telly back in the day so I didn't grow up with those cartoons.
I got a couple of Bloodborne comics and would kill for an animated series in that art style, though.
I thought dexters lab when I watched the clip then read the article and it checks out lol! Hook it up to my veins
Please someone support this guy for an animated series! Looks stunning! Netflix hear mee!!
@Jackpaza0508 But really, what is A Bloodborne?
Thanks, I hate it.
@Olmaz One who is born of the blood
@j2c Not necessarily. Borne is different from born after all and it could possibly mean to bear the burden of said blood.
Neat little video, makes me wanna give the game another chance.
@j2c "We are born of the blood, made men by the blood, undone by the blood. Our eyes are yet to open. Fear the Old Blood".
Bloodborne - an allusion to the mortality that humanity is blessed/cursed with. The elite tried to commune with the gods to overcome their mortality, yet all it did was turn them into monsters. It’s also an allusion to “bloodborn illness” - the lycanthropy.
Just one man’s interpretation , btw…
Still the best FromSoftware game 🏆
I kind love it, kinda hate it.
Love all the references but it completely changes the aesthetic.
Regardless great work Anthony Berardo. Talented chap!
That was good! This is something I would watch on Netflix. A 8 episodes show.. perfect.
I didn't know I wanted something so much until I just watched that!
