Dedication: Guy Spent 4 Years Creating This 80's Style Star Wars Anime All By Himself

March 25, 2015


This is 'TIE Fighter', a beautiful seven minute Star Wars short drawn and animated entirely by Youtuber OtaKing77077 in the style of 1980's anime. It is most impressive. You know, I tried making a flip-book once and abandoned the project by the third page. My mom still hung it up on the fridge, but only to to remind me what a failure I continue to be. That was Monday.

Keep going for the video, which I borrowed (stole) from our sister video site Hedonistica, which also has a worthwhile compilation of all the different Disney castle animations used at the beginning of their movies.

    Very impressive work. I am sure that Daft Punk is eager to implement this slick piece of art in one of their music videos.

  • Jai Mico

    Wow ! Better than Lucas's Episodes 1 , 2 and 3 !

  • John Whatmeworry

    Not only is this great animation and story but I'm also super impressed that they managed to make an entire story without any dialogue and everyone can understand what's happening. A terrific example of the 'show, don't tell' rule in movie production.

    On another note, how is the person who made this still alive? I mean taking on the entire job by themselves must have been a suicide attempt….

    I had to watch this 4 times in a row.... I haven't seen somehting so well done and made me feel like I was a kid again watching Cartoons before I had to run for my bus stop to get to school on time... man those were the days

  • Daylon Williamson

    I see a sweet mix of Voltron and Silverhawks! Love it!

  • Dickie Richards

    I truly do not understand how a single person could do this. It's so good I am having a hard time believing a team of professional animators did not create this.

  • Devin George

    This really needs to become a full length thing.

  • MustacheHam

    Brilliant work.

  • Sandy Dmyterko

    First couple of minutes reminds me of Robotech anime.

    I've been getting wet about this short for the last 2 days......this, and Bloodborne(unrelated, I know)

  • super00su .

    You are an amazing man, Brad.

    I agree Big Mclargehuge, but Mary made $10000 last year by working from home! I was stunned when I saw her bank balance, she showed me how she did it and I'll share it with you!

    why do comments wait for approval if Hazakabammer the pro spammer isn't being moderated out?
