I really, really wish the industry would wisen the fuck up and stop doing this shit. Recaps are incredibly retarded and nobody wants them; why do they keep making them? "This franchise was successful, let's rehash it and try to make more money instead of doing something original!"

I can see it kind of working for old series, do a rehash movie summarising the story numerous years later in HD and all, but not for something that only just recently ended and already meets modern animation standards.

Really, how hard is it to just do an extra story or something at least? Some prequel or side story or little semi sequel story, it doesn't have to be canon if they just want to cash in, but just please don't regurgitate the same old crap. It's stupid.

so does that mean that the movie that was previously announced is now a recap? or is this like in addition to the movies that were already announced.

What happened in Higashi no Eden again?
Oh gosh, I completely forgot, but I don't want to rewatch the entire anime series again. If only there was a condensed version of Eden, say like only a hour to an hour and half long, that could remind me what occurred.

So, we've already got two movies to finish the actual story, and now they're adding a recap to the list? Ugh. Anime really needs to grow out of this trend. FAST.

While I'm sure very few will bother with the recap, I don't see how this will "fuk things" up for the anime. A well made series will stay a well made series, regardless of how they try to market it after.

Doesn't make this decision any less stupid however.

I don't see any problem here. It's a stupid move but considering the fans and market at Japan, I would guess it can still rack in profits.

We ain't gonna lose anything if they make this UNLESS this recap movie will be taking over one of the original intended two movies...which is not the case.Though I will be flaming later on if they do.

Lolreplies.

I for one don't mind this at all. Hope that despite the general 'ew, recap' reactions, a good group will sub this if it's released as good quality raw.

Don't mix this up with the first of the 2 movies that are already announced.

The series is short enough as is, what's the point in a recap movie?

Agreed, and especially if there really is new perspective of the events, I don't see how it hurts.

Why all the rage? I'd like to enjoy the two films with people who didn't watch the series. The recap will help those people. Don't let all the rage out of your body everytime you read the word "recap".

lol at people surprised that the makers of a successful series want to make more money with it. That's nothing new.

This seems completely unnecessary to me.

oh, these little earthquakes

A recap isn't such a terrible thing if it has a new perspective on the original events of the anime. Either way I think a recap is just for the people who didn't watch the whole anime to watch it in one sitting. A recap is a rather effective way to re-air the anime to capture more of an audience or just to keep the anime from fading in peoples minds if later production work for the anime is being done.

A recap? Nobody wants to see a recap, they've already SEEN the series! Unless they're lazy and chose to watch the recap rather than the actual anime (which is not very long at all)

I have patience for re-watching series I really like...so I don't mind recaps. ='o
I do it a lot anyway, so I'm used to it. -shrugs-
A retarded fan like myself just can't seem to let go of this habit, I guess. ^^;;
