What If Star Wars: The Force Awakens Was An Anime?


It is not secret that Star Wars takes inspiration from Japanese culture, be it in the kendo influence behind the light saber battles, the samurai-esque look of Darth Vader or even the fact that the first movie is basically a space opera version of Akira Kurosawa’s Hidden Fortress.

That said, what if I told you that some wonderful person on the internet has decided to bring Star Wars: The Force Awakens into the anime realm? Well that very thing has happened with a fan putting together an ‘anime opening’ video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The video plays on all the tropes and even makes use of a song by perrenial anime music makers, J-rock band FLOW.

You can check out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens anime opening below. Let us know what you think of this lovely bit of mash up in the comments section.


Flip flop slipperdy snap, want to hear a puzzle slap? Who hoot hoots like a shoe in the night, what beetleborgs do is quite a fright. You can be Scooby Doo and eat your pie too but I'm just having some fun being Halliday, dude.
