I am literally shocked at how well this edit worked for me. I was bawling like a baby at the end. The Japanese voice acting is so well done and the narrative changes are a revelation. I have never been so invested in Anakin’s character, nor have I ever been so convinced by his fall or felt the tragedy of his clash with Obi-Wan.
That said, this edit is a bit rough around the edges. Rough in terms of video quality, and inn terms of some of the edits. I really feel like if someone recreated this edit from scratch with blu-ray quality footage, smoother editing and a few minor story tweaks here and there (Some of the flashbacks like the Coruscant city chase run a little longer than they need to), I would never want to watch the prequels any other way.
Hell, I’d do it myself, but inserting and timing that many subtitles correctly sounds like a lot of work, and it’s something I haven’t really attempted before.
