All right I was wrong. Turns out this TV series is not the before everything. I realized the nameless child is literally baby Yoda. Seeing the Storm Troopers and them mentioning the crumbling Empire. This took place way in the future. I don't know when since I haven't seen all the films.
Season 2 - Won't comment on the first 3 or 4 whatever episodes. The one that's worth commenting for me personally was learning the mythos behind the Mandalorian's tribe. I don't know much Mandalore.
Later, we meet Ahsoka Tano and learned one of the names for our two main characters. Baby Yoda's name is Grogu. He was one of the Jedi children from the Clone Wars era. Ahsoka reference Anakin (didn't say his name) as she just mentions how one of their best Jedia strayed down teh wrong path due to strong attachments. I find a vague and weird response. Anakin fell on his own sword for his rage.
We leave Corvus after both Mandalorian and Ahsoka liberate it and head to planet Tython.
The fight between Ahsoka and the magistrate was okay. Movie had better Jedi fights since it's budget and better choreograph.
I finished season 2. I forgot his name was revealed last season along with his face. I was shocked to see his face reveal. I guess I don't remember his face. The actor's face isn't that memorable for me.
It was a sad (I actually felt it) departure scene when Mandalorian gives Grogu away to Luke Skywalker. Luke notes how strong their bonds were. It's good thing we have a Jedi who will take him in. Ashoka wouldn't do it. I really don't know what happened to her after the Clone Wars animated series.
I thought a new person who hasn't watched Star Wars will get into this show. Damn, season 2 requires some knowledge. These characters from other Star Wars franchise aren't just cameos. They do stuff in this show.
I didn't know Bo Katan was from the animated series. I didn't recognize her name either.
Still, I think a new fan can watch this show. I hardly watched any of the Star Wars film. I only watched the animated series and the Clones Wars movie. I never watched the original trilogy.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
