This 80’s Anime-style TIE Fighter Short is Nostalgic and Dope

Remember what anime used to look like back in the 80’s? Well, YouTuber and animator OtaKing77077 does, and he loved the art style so much that he spent the past four years creating an animated short rooted in the Star Wars universe with a focus on the Empire.

The short is simply titled, “TIE Fighter”, and the moment you see it you’ll instantly be transported back to the days of Speed Racer and Voltron thanks to the classic anime visual style. Check it out above and enjoy!
