Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only anime. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting weebs.

Hell, its about time

Warhammer 40k IP is heavily protected, and as such not much has been explored by Games Workshop in putting the immense lore and memetics of the 40k universe into visual long form aesthetics.

But now rumors of a grand scale project to incorporate one of the most badass scifi communities have begun creeping into our timelines.

The minds of gods are not for mortals to know, or to judge. Accept that Tzeentch has a place for all of us in his grand scheme, and be happy in the part you have to play.

The Emperor protects his IP, and when a project is initiated he reigns his Inquisition upon all who would proselytize heresy.

The AnimeRight has been putting feelers out, even teaming with Antifa Anime sites like Anime News Network to discover who is in charge of creating the 40k anime fans have been begging for since mankind was first united under the God Emperors banner.

Why now?

So why would a 40k anime be being made now, after GW has kept it's products far from the Aniverse?

Fans, that's why.

Let's be honest, if there is a commonality between lovers of genres, the anime fandom and 40k fandom are quite similar.

It used to be that 40k and anime fans were on 2 different sides of the spectrum, but as both fandoms have increased, their overlap cannot be mistaken.

HELSREACH: The Movie by Richard Boylan

From the success of 40k audiobooks to 40k fanmade movies and videos and the fact that Games Workshop would allow an anime to be made seems not only smart but inevitable.

Hundreds of thousands of consumers are eating up 40k content at a breakneck pace, not ever seen before.

With the success of anime on hosting services like Netflix, not only will their product be protected, but is sure to be a success.

The Flesh Change

From what we have heard so far there will be a focus on Chaos in this anime, and in a twist the Space marines will be changed, from the typical clonelike Astartes the new Space marines will now be Animated in a Japanese style.

And we all know what that means.


Gender Equality

In the future, the gene-seed will not only be kawaii, but also tsundere.

I love the current space marine style, but some have made some valid criticism that the Astartes are too plain looking.

This is why it has been postulated that the new Astartes will have women in their squads.

Only Anime can give justice to Chaos

Another reason we have not seen 40k movies is that half of the lore would just be too difficult to properly represent.

But with anime, anything is possible, and the fear and anger of chaos will most surely be better represented by the drawn hand.

And let's be honest, Slaanesh is most definitely a weeb.

How can you help make the 40k anime great?

We need your voice, we need your eyes.

Without you, the Gods and the Emperor are meaningless.

If the path to salvation leads through the halls of purgatory, then so be it.

Without the Dark, there can be no Light,
We have purpose
Without the Lie, there can be no Truth,
We have purpose
Without the War, there can be no Victory,
We have purpose
Without the Death, there can be no sacrifice,
We have purpose
Without the Hope there can be no Future,
We have purpose
Without the Loyalty there can be no one chapter,
We have purpose
Without the Emperor, there is nothing,...
And we would have no purpose.

O goddess-born of great Anchises' line, The gates of hell are open night and day; Smooth the descent, and easy is the way: But to return, and view the cheerful skies, In this the task and mighty labor lies. To few great Jupiter imparts this grace, And those of shining worth and heav'nly race. Betwixt those regions and our upper light, Deep forests and impenetrable night

  1. Same as others have said. Sisters of Battle are bada** and no one is pushing for gender equality on that faction… Space Marines too plain looking?! The author clearly is not a 40k follower, such speak is heresy! Space Marines are the center piece of 40k, you either love them or love killing them with your favorite faction! All the scifi war stories I ever seen space marines are the only group to wear a Mack truck as a suit but skip the helmet so you can see their fury as they purge! The community has always been hostile to the movie, anime, lore changes because some poof will ultimately come in and scribble all over one of the last great scifi bastions still left in the SJW stained entertainment industry. People partake in a hobby to relax and get away from the grind, not participate in forced social programming. If you make the anime dont ruin it, we want to see 40k not Akira

  2. On the main topic of the idea? HELL YES. As long as you keep typical anime physics toned down when dealing with normal humans (Chaos and Space Marines can jump around like lightning for all I care since you know, super humans. And as long as glaring mistakes in lore and deviations are not serious or pointless. *Cough*Female space marines*Cough**Cough* Soulstorm*Cough*

    I feel like the overblown conversation on representation among females in 40k is, as I said, over blown. Complaints on Space Marines being all male is kind of ridiculous when you consider there are already female Space marines. They’re daemonculaba…. Okay more seriously the Adeptus Sororitas and more specifically the Sisters of Battle fill the thematic role well enough that female space marines ARE NOT NECESSARY. I will also point out that Space marine armor makes it pretty damn hard to show female physique under all that plain armor anyways, meaning you can label the space marine “Female” but that’s irrelevant since they’re still going to be broad shouldered body builders with no obvious sexual dimorphism anyways. And that’s true for the normal male neophytes, you won’t be seeing their junk or naked bodies preferably since they’re there to fight and look cool, not- oh wait anime combined with beach episodes….. GE THE BRAIN BLEACH! Get it before nurgle comes!

    Sorry what was I talking about? Oh right.

    This isn’t to say I’m opposed to more diversification I’m someone who would scream from rooftops for female guard models! I also ran a Desert Tiger Al’Rahem list, and I definitely want more human guard models from different regiments then just the Mobile infantry Cadians and the Rambo Catachans.

    40k is already very diverse anyways, hell for the longest time I thought the Eldar were a mostly female race! But we also have all Imperial organizations entirely gender neutral, every faction from the Imperial Guard and Imperial Navy, to the Inquisition and High Lords of Terra. the only group, the Space Marines, is also counter parted by the Adeptus Sororitas, so it equals out anyways.

  3. No Women marines! That is what the Sisters of Battle and Sisters of Silence are for. You can throw some Chaos worshipers if you like but there are reason why many within the current 40k community consider Fem Marines as heresy.

  4. “This is why it has been postulated that the new Astartes will have women in their squads.”

    How about no?
