If you’ve ever wondered how Game of Thrones might look were its cast subbed out for animated characters, consider your anime prayers officially answered. YouTube channel Malec has released this animated reimagining of the show’s opening sequence, complete with a suitably anime-ready remix of the theme.




The short clip provides a brief glimpse at how the series might look if it were ever to be animated, anime-style, showing some of the series’ most prominent characters — from Cersei, Ned Stark and the original Mad King to the likes of Danerys Targaryen and Arya Stark.

Watch the video above to see just what you might expect from a reimagined Game of Thrones. In other related news, it’s been an all-round busy time for the show’s broadcasters – HBO — who have gone to extreme lengths to prevent leaks from the final season.
