This Overwatch Anime Trailer Is Everything We Didn’t Know We Wanted (VIDEO)
Blogger “Glayer” from Korea created a short video that combines D.Va and anime perfectly. The Overwatch anime Himouto! Umara-chan mashup is based on the popular anime of the same name. Last year Glayer released a teaser, and almost a year later the final results are in. Fans of either series will appreciate the references and similarities.
Those on the Overwatch side who aren’t familiar with the anime, Himouto! Umaru-chan started as a popular manga series in 2013. Since then it has become a series and video game for the PlayStation Vita. The anime itself has been running strong since 2015 and the Overwatch anime and Himouto! Umaru-chan mash-up trailer mirrors that of the original. Without further ado, check it out in the video below!
For those on the Himouto! Umara-chan side of the fandom, D.Va is a hero from Overwatch. This first-person team-based shooter has become wildly popular on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The game has attracted millions of players and is considered one of the most popular franchises in the industry right now.
Being a devoted fan of both, it only makes sense that Glayer would take the time to mash-up his favorite fandoms into something fun to share with everyone. The animation is excellent, showing just how hard the blogger worked on this over the past year. Fans of the anime and the video game have praised the Overwatch Himouto! Umaru-chan trailer stating that they would definitely watch the series if it were real.
