Breaking Bad characters and familiar scenes were transformed into an anime-style spectacle in a new collection of AI-generated artwork. The images, presenting a visual reinterpretation of the series, were shared by ManMeetsMachine on Instagram.

The anime-inspired artwork features key characters such as Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), and Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). The images showcase both character portraits and also memorable moments from the series. Fans will recognize scenes like the dramatic conclusion of the pilot episode and Walter’s infamous pizza throw, all depicted through the vibrant and exaggerated style typical of anime.

Originally aired in 2008 on AMC, Breaking Bad follows the gripping tale of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned methamphetamine manufacturing drug lord. Portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Walter White’s complex character arc—from a man battling terminal cancer to a feared criminal mastermind—helped the series earn its place as a television classic over its five-season run, which concluded in 2013.

Breaking Bad in anime isn’t as far-fetched as it might seem. The show’s powerful narrative and vivid characters could arguably make a seamless transition into animated form. The series’ storyline, along with the show’s memorable characters, could be well-suited to the dramatic and exaggerated style of anime. Characters like Gus Fring, Hank Schrader, and the ominously quiet Cousins have that larger-than-life quality that could translate effectively into a bold, stylized anime format.

Despite its grounding in a stark, realistic setting devoid of the fantastical or supernatural elements often associated with animated shows, “Breaking Bad” does flirt with highly stylized visual elements. The show’s occasional use of surreal drug-induced sequences and striking montages—like those in Season 2, which are punctuated by visions of a brightly colored teddy bear—suggest a narrative ready for the expressive potential of animation.

Interestingly, the world of Breaking Bad has already dipped a toe into animation through its spinoff, Better Call Saul. This offshoot briefly ventured into animated storytelling with Slippin’ Jimmy, although the experiment was short-lived, spanning just six episodes on AMC+ in May 2022 and receiving a lukewarm reception.

Fake Breaking Bad Sequel Poster Fools Fans

Recently, a satirical Facebook page has tricked viewers with a convincingly crafted poster suggesting Bryan Cranston’s character, Walter White, might return to the screen. The page created fan-made art to a supposed sequel to Breaking Bad titled “Heisenberg.”

Despite the detailed and dramatic description accompanying the poster, which promised a continuation of Walter White’s saga, there is, in fact, no such project in development. The poster, shared earlier this month, showed a scenario where Walter White miraculously survives his supposed demise. The synopsis reads:

“WALTER WHITE RETURNS!!! “HEISENBERG,” brings the iconic Bryan Cranston, back to the screen in a pulse-pounding sequel that unfolds after the legendary finale of Breaking Bad. When an ambulance delivers Walter White to a fate seemingly sealed by cuffs and concrete, his most daring escape begins, unveiling two hours of unmatched brilliance and ingenuity. Coming to theaters in August 2024 from AMC Films, witness Walter White’s final level, now more powerful and merciless than ever in a masterful game of survival and danger.”

The fake announcement even set a release date for August 2024 under AMC Films. Although plenty of fans were quick to dismiss the poster as a nice piece of fan art, there were many of the 84,000 who commented on it were taken in by the thought of Cranston once again returning to the role of Walter White.
