Earlier, when commenting on the Simpsons anime reference in the Treehouse of Horror episode XXV, I mentioned that I would write up a post on how I would have recast them, so here it is.
Okay, so I decided to try casting the Simpsons as anime characters by both appearance and personality. I also had to choose characters from fairly major anime that can be easily recognised by the majority of people and I had to try and avoid doubling up as much as I could.
To be honest, having Bart as Naruto works very well, I wouldn’t change this.
I haven’t seen Attack on Titan yet, so I don’t know if Lisa was well placed. I would cast her as either Rukia from Bleach, or Maka from Soul Eater.
Maggie, I would have imagined as little Ponyo (in human form) or Koenma from Yu Yu Hakushou.
Santa’s Little Helper would be Akamaru from Naruto!
Homer and Marge would probably be well placed as Captain Kyoraku and Lieutenant Nanao. (Both from Bleach).
If you wanted to cast them as characters from separate shows, however, you could cast Marge as Nami from One Piece.
Lastly I think Homer Simpson could easily pull off Iskandar from Fate/Zero or Inspector Megure from Case Closed (Detective Conan).
What do you think? Do you agree with my choices and if not how would you place these characters?
I’d love to hear your thoughts, so comment below.
