    This one wasn't very good IMO. Too ridiculous for my taste.
    Though I did find it to be funny that the humans didn't need space suits, but the droid did. I didn't get the impression that that was intentionally funny though.

    Liked the animation and really liked the music in this. First of Visions that I've watched. Not particularly intrigued by the story in this one, but I look forward to watching the other Visions episodes later.

    It was way ridiculous. Moreso than even the old Clone Wars animation. I want to like it for the era but sheesh.

    Not really sure what the era is by looking at it. Seems more like an alternate Empire than post-TRoS.

    Definitely the most out there, I think.

    This one was… okay.

    I liked the story and watching it I thought it could actually work really nicely as the backstory for Rey’s father if they retcon him not being Force sensitive. But it was executed a bit too over the top for my liking. Also why the hell did the droid have a space suit on while the humans could survive in space without one? That bothered me more than it should have. :p

    6/10

    This was an excuse for a flashy light show, but I enjoyed it.

    That's kinda Trigger's MO, so kinda helpful to know going in.
    Yeah I got a big lol out of that, but then again realism and practicality clearly weren't on Imaishi's mind. :p

    Empire vs Republic kinda means after Endor but pre-ST?

    I believe they mentioned they're part of the First Order, Am definitely mentioned destroying the Resistance at one point. Plus the montage of their creation was clearly inspired by the labs on Exegol.

    I agree, but that museum hangar was weird as. [face_curious] I’m content with it being post-ST, of course.

    The droid in a the spacesuit was just a play on C-3PO’s overly cautious personality. I liked this one overall, good potential to crossover into a live action format down the road.

    2 for 3 so far.

    What was the humans in not-spacesuits a play on? :p

    This one was a little too avant garde for me but I liked the sibling dynamic.

    I thought the design and animation were top notch and the sound and music was really good. I didn't mind it being so over the top because that is what they were going for. What really dragged it down more than anything was the dialog. While not excessive It felt really hammy and expositional. It was like they were trying to embody every bad stereotype about anime dialog. I think the Episode would have been far better served if there was no dialog what so ever. Basically a what could of been a 9/10 became a 7 maybe even 6 out of 10 for me.

    If anyone said to them "Tone it down a bit.", they said "Oh nonono. We're turning it up to 12!"

    Characters yelling big chunks of backstory as they fight was really corny. Forget logic. I loved it.

    I agree and I think you've nailed with taking the dialog away, so I watched it on mute just to see, give it a go, it is surprisingly better!

    I'll jump on the 'ridiculous' bandwagon. Interesting that many of us were thinking the same word. As for the dialog, that was some Ric Olie level exposition. The sad part is, I have a sense that the story could have been much better than its telling.

    It is basically Force Unleashed with a couple of differences (eg: bro and sis / original and clone) but a lot of similarities.
