Quite possibly the boldest thing Star Wars has ever done is put it into the hands of different animators and let them loose, allowing to create their own interpretations of Star Wars in many different Japanese anime styles. Each episode is its own story, apparently not canon to the rest of the Star Wars universe but thankfully that is not the point of this series.
The real stand out for this show is episode one. Created by Studio Colorido, it is by far the one that most impressed me, not saying the others are bad but ‘The Duel’ gave me a whole new outlook on Star Wars as other genres.
By using Japanese anime they have unlocked a whole new audience, but if you’re not a big fan of anime I still urge you to watch it as each episode has some really interesting stories. As I said before it gives a new interpretation to Star Wars but I also felt it was a bit of a drawback. I myself am quite the Star Wars nerd, I understand there is some sort of law to the universe and this series seemed to break it. It’s by no means a big deal but I felt it had lost that magical feeling that Stars Wars had. But each to their own I guess.
As a whole it is a fantastic series, if you like Star Wars then there is guaranteed enjoyment. And if you like anime then this is easily the thing for you.
