A fantastic introduction to classic Japanese anime, The Duel is produced by Kamikaze Douga  (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) and is directed by Takanobu Mizuno. The premise of the first short focuses on a battle between a Jedi and a Sith, when a small village reminiscent of Japan is attacked by a band of misfits lead by the Sith warrior. With elements pulled from Japanese folklore, and mostly in black and white the animation is reflective of classic Japanese animation from the early 20th century.

Tatooine Rhapsody is animated by Studio Colorido and is themed around a band of rockers looking to just jam a full show without interruption. While taking influence from Star Wars Episode 1, and emo rock from the same early 2000’s era, Tatooine Rhapsody is a fun, light, uplifting joy ride delivered by the same anime studio that brought you The Whisker Way.
