Watch this amazingly amped Game of Thrones anime opening-credits video

The Game of Thrones animated opening-credit sequence has become one of the most distinctive aspects of HBO's medieval fantasy sensation, and it's always a treat to see which new landmarks arise from the Seven Kingdoms map as the seasons progress.

Fans love to tinker with the original title treatment by reimagining it as Carpool Karaoke, a cheesy '80s sitcom, a life-affirming '90s drama, and even one sung by goats. But you've never seen it delivered in a crazy, over-caffeinated anime style.

Check out this outrageous Game of Thrones opening animated by YouTuber Malec with a collage of Japanese anime cliches all jumbled together with a liberal dose of chaotic J-Rock embellishing the haunting notes of composer Ramin Djawadi's theme.

Kickstart your day with an injection of awesome and just try to dislodge that killer song from your brain after a single viewing. Everyone raise their hands now to demand a hardcore animated Game of Thrones series! Raise them high!
