Anime-inspired TIE Fighter short film is eight minutes of Star Wars space-battle porn

What Paul "OtaKing77077" Johnson's TIE Fighter lacks in plot, it makes up for in explosions, as brave Imperial soldiers absolutely pulverize a convoy of dastardly rebel troops. The short was inspired by Star Wars (naturally), and "the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime." While it may be a little rotoscoped for my taste, who am I to say no to a rock soundtrack and a female TIE fighter pilot?
