SPOILER

After eight episodes of fairly happy endings, Akakiri hit hard. Quite the way to end the series

Yeah, I enjoyed all and loved most of these shorts, but Akakiri is the one that will haunt.

Yeah, I would have swapped the order of the last two around. Lop & Ocho is so well-imagined, and I cannot get that shot of the Star Destroyer floating over the cherry blossom island out of my head.

Would have loved for more blasters and droids in these and less lightsaber lightsaber lightsaber, but on the other hand: lightsabers.

The Elder is probably the one of these that best fits into canon, it could have taken place only a little while before Phantom Menace.

Lop and Ocho was one of the few shorts that actually engaged with empire and what it's like to be subsumed by something much larger, and IMHO was diminished by shoehorning yet another damn lightsaber into it.

Arakiri perhaps did a better job illustrating Anakin's downfall than the prequel movies did. The Force has the power to do what you most desperately want, all you must do is reach for it...
