Overwatch is a great game. Maybe it would also be a great anime.

It turns out you can make a convincing anime-style opening for it with some clever editing of the its cinematics. That’s exactly what YouTuber user Kay G. Radley did, and the result is hilarious. It has all the familiar beats: the long, one-shot fight scene, dramatic poses, and upbeat, catchy Japanese music. The video is a fun tribute to the team-based shooter, which released earlier this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

I mean, I’d watch that show. If I wasn’t so busy playing Overwatch, I mean.
