If The Mandalorian Was an Anime

The Mandalorian is a pretty damned fine series as-is. But it’s still fun to envision variants of the show, like this fun anime style opening put together by Malec, Martial Coulon, Antoine Bertrand, KronoMuzik, and Kenny dozo. Kawaii Baby Yoda is just as adorable as his live-action inspiration.
