"It was inspired by comic books, video games, anime I grew up with": Mike Shinoda on his animated video for 'World's On Fire' – watch

Mike Shinoda has unveiled his latest music video in time for his Manila concert.

On Thursday night (09/05), Shinoda released the anime-inspired visual of 'World's On Fire,' lifted off his solo record Post Traumatic via Warner Bros. 'World's On Fire' is the Linkin Park rapper's first animated project he'd worked on from beginning to end.

"This is something different in the sense that I wrote the story, I created the characters with [Venturia Animation Studios], I really got deeply involved in the creation of the visuals for this project," Shinoda tells Bandwagon of the video, which was inspired by comics books, video games, and anime he grew up with—including Megaman, Astro Boy, Metroid, and Akira. "It's rated E for everyone," he adds.
