Summary: On a remote planet, a village chief ‘s daughter named Haku and her lover Asu wish to surrender themselves to bandits who have reprogrammed Sepratist droids to raid their village, despite her sister’s objections. A fallen Jedi named F and an explorer named Valco intervene when Haku’s sister faces execution.
Review: One of things I love about anime is how beautiful it can be. Kinema Citrus gives this story a rich palette.
The music for this short was the best I’ve heard in the entire series. Not to sell any of the others short, because they had excellent scores too.
As for the story, it was great. I liked the relationship between Haku and Asu. Their selflessness for their village made me want them to be together. I loved F and Valco’s fight with the droids.
Two more to go, and in reality, they could be tied.
