This was another fun action / adventure. I also enjoyed the Spanish flavor of the anime. It was something a little different and I really like different.

I do wonder how this show will have a sequel as they “Obi Wan Kenobi’d” the best character…

It was a fun show though. Might be best of 2015 for me.
