    Guys, what would you think if Studio TRIGGER did an episode?

    Just watched Promare, which I found to be excellent (though I am admittedly not very well versed in anime, having only seen a few various films – I know I need to start remedying that), so I would absolutely be down to see Trigger take on one of these.

    TRIGGER's style is admittedly over-the-top, but then again, so is SW. TRIGGER has a penchant for aliens and outer space(case in point, Space Patrol Luluco) so TRIGGER would go well with SW.

    Also, what would you think of Production IG working on one? They made the Ghost in the Shell anime adaptations as well as the anime Psycho-Pass, both of them very fundamentally Cyberpunk.

    Durge is one of those characters I thought was really cool when I was 10, because I was 10.

    I was so engrossed in that show. I would have taken a bullet in defense of its awesomeness. And then they went and created Durge.

    So, back on topic. What Japanese anime studios would you like to see work on this?

    Gainax and/or Production IG. Bring Anno into Star Wars.

    More details:


    Low key jazzed for this. Really hoping for some original stories and characters here, and not just retellings of existing narratives.

    I'm hoping we get some brand new protagonists for at least one of these shorts.

    Although I'm sure there'll be the inevitable Ahsoka/ Samurai adventure in there too.

    Excited for this!

    Just hope the shorts are not too short. Hope the whole thing is at least hour long.

    Also nice to have some new SW in the second half of the year before Boba Fett in December.

    I would probably find Visions more exciting if there turns out to be an actual Anime studio animating this instead of Disney Animation or Lucasfilm Animation or whatever. Disney outsourced work to Japan in the 90s for many of the Disney Afternoon cartoons. An Anime composer would be cool too. It would be really cool if different episodes were animated by different studios almost like a showcase. It already sounds like each episode will be through the lens of a different Re:Creator. Hah, Troyca get on this.

    Well, the original announcement of the show specified that some of the best Japanese anime creators would be making it, so it sounds like it's going to be pretty much what you're hoping for.

    I took creators to mean directors, writers, producers working on an episode. Like Shinichiro Watanabi for example. Rather than the studios like Geno, Studio Bones, Sunrise, Madhouse all of which Watanabi has worked on series for.

    It's fine if this is a beginning. I think what would really be fire is a manga version of this getting different mangaka to draw and write for parts of a story. Imagine Star Wars story and art by Gosho Aoyama, Boichi, Hiromu Arakawa, Tite Kibo, Yusuke Murata, Kohei Horikoshi. Yeah I know this list is overwhelmingly Shonen. Sue me.

    The beauty of SW is that it has drawn from the many different cultures of this planet and subtly weaves aspects into the Saga. I have a feeling that this project might not take that into consideration.

    TBH, I was kind of hoping it would be like Netflix's Love, Death + Robots, and feature many different animation styles. It appears its only anime based, which I think is quite limiting. Can't wait for the new look at the series, though.
