I said much of what I want to say about Kanan in my "forgotten but not gone" Star Wars review posted on this site back in January, but at the same time, now that the series has come to a close, I have a few more thoughts.
Foremost, the Rebels framing sequence for the final storyline didn't work for me at all. It felt altogether unnecessary and the forced connection between the now and the flashback didn't really have meaningful connection.

Mark Brooks references here? A striking piece
I like that this series acts as a bridge between the Clone Wars cartoon and Rebels, and does so quite effectively. It feels more like Clone Wars than Rebels for sure. My initial reservation that it wasn't enough like Rebels can actually be put aside, as I like the Clone Wars feel more, and would've appreciated further bridging between the two series. Again, the idea of a Rebels anthology still strikes me as the more appropriate idea, showing the Clone Wars back story of each of the latter series' protagonists.
I can't say that I'll miss Kanan as a series, as I felt it did the job it needed to do, but I do hope there's more Rebels comics coming...so long as they have purpose as well.
