Would you like to watch a gorgeous and elegant four-minute animated video depicting the tales of the beloved Murderbot? You would. Or at least you certainly should: this animatic, set to Tegan and Sara’s “I’m Not Your Hero,” is enough to make any fan of Martha Wells’ Murderbot Diaries yearn for a whole animated Murderbot series.
It also contains spoilers for the books up through Network Effect, so proceed with caution!
There’s so much love and care put into this art—and several months worth of work, too. We’re not the only ones excited about the result! Martha Wells is also enthused:
HOLY SHIT LOOK HOW AWESOME THIS IS https://t.co/aHi1tNKmDA

If you need more Murderbot-related content to tide you over until the April 2021 release of Fugitive Telemetry, might we suggest TV recommendations for Murderbot? The time Murderbot and ART talked to Instagram? A reminder that Murderbot is one of the greatest science fiction robots of all time (using the term “robot” loosely)?
Or you could just keep watching this video until it becomes impossible to get the song out of your head. (We have no idea what that’s like. None whatsoever.)
