Splatoon comic anime debut episode – “Rider”
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Videos | 27 Comments
Last month, CoroCoro teased a new web anime for Splatoon. The first episode, titled “Rider”, has gone live.
Rather than a straight up anime, CoroCoro calls the series a “comic anime”. That’s because instead of true animation, it’s more along the lines of a manga with voiced dialogue. There are bits of animation sprinkled throughout, however.
We’ve included the new Splatoon comic anime below.
CoroCoro making a Splatoon anime

CoroCoro has long been producing a manga based on Splatoon. Now the magazine is taking things to the next level with its own original anime.
The anime won’t actually air on TV, but it will be published on CoroCoro’s YouTube channel. It will naturally be based on the manga.
CoroCoro will be kicking off the Splatoon anime on August 12.
Inkopolis Tower from the original Splatoon can be seen in Splatoon 2
It’s always interesting to see when related games are connected, and in Splatoon 2, Nintendo has gone out of its way to make sure that the original ties back into the sequel. It’s something that some players may never notice, but you can actually see Inkopolis Tower from the original Splatoon in Splatoon 2. It’s a very nice Easter egg indeed.
