I'm really intrigued by this recap episode...another Gainax anime...Neon Genesis Evangelion...had a recap episode and then after that the series got a whole lot darker...so I'm wondering where Gainax will take TTGL now...
After episode 9, i skip alot of episodes.So i don't know what is all about.
Recap of Kamnia was good.
Sighs After hearing Nia's voice, she is stupid. Time to drop this show. Should not have Kamnia get killed.
in summary, this episode serves 1 purpose, to show us exactly why (in 24 minutes no less) TTGL shits right the fuck over all other anime.
the way they did this was quite good as well, they actually put some effort into it, and the compilation eyecatches were awesome to see.
dusFlaesPhan said: got to see kamina again which was good.
"That day, we lost something that could never be replaced." My ass, that Nia creature took his place in the opening( I know it is pointless to keep a dead MC in the opening) ( and so my irrational hate for Nia was born)
Eh, it's a recap. Nothing overly special. For a good spot for one, since a....7 year timeskip is coming up? Wow, that's interesting. I wonder how the characters will look different now.
I'll just post my thoughts on the series so far here:
+Has it's own style, which has been pretty entertaining
+Epic plot twists I never saw coming
-Pacing felt too rushed
-Needed more episodes to really flush out the world
-Too many things I fear won't be answered or elaborated on more now
-A little too over the top at times
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."
I thought they were going to do something different for a recap but nope just a boring ol recap. Iv seen other animes do a better job.Yoko has become much better since the death of kamina so im curious to see more of her later.
That was actually a decent recap episode. Seeing Kamina again was nice, the music choice was ...interesting, and I loved all the drawings/sketches they showed during the credits, that was cool to see. Looks like the next arc is 7 years later and Simon has a new voice actor (he is in his 20s now, I think). That'll take a bit to get used to. I wonder if Nia and those two kids and Forehead also have new voice actors? We shall see.
Pretty boring. A recap episode was not needed at all. Although I like how they featured all of the eyecatches form episodes 1-15!
The pronunciation of Adiane's name has always bugged me though! Based on my understanding of Japanese phonetics (which is limited as I have only learned it from anime lol), I feel like her name should be pronounced: "Ah-dee-ah-neh" but they always say it like: "Ah-dee-ne"!!!!! Ugh!
Interesting I would not expect them to skip 7 years into the future. I thought that whatever was gonna come would have come right away. Next episode seems pretty cool though.
Dropped this show at episode 5 a year ago. Continued from episode 7 a few months ago and dropped it again after the first episode. Read the list of episodes summary for episode 8 about 10 hours ago and saw that Kamina was going to die. That's what got me back into this anime -- the character that everybody loves dying. I actually like the show now that he's gone, and some of their old hijinks are back with the last few episodes (I completely skipped the beach episode), but for the most part, it's more enjoyable and less obnoxious. I absolutely love time skips. Always have, love it when we get to see how characters have grown and changed. How the world's changed. Simone is my favourite character (if only because he is the least obnoxious, the most fleshed out and not just a fanservice character with superficial depth). So, uhh, maybe Simone is just my least hated character, then. Oh well, he was the only character I was excited about seeing change. Hearing him in the PV (English dub), looks like Lelouch is spearheading this operation. Hopefully, Simone also takes lessons from Lelouch's personality and smarts.
Umm, yeah, right, the recap episode. Skipped most of it. I'm sure TV watchers and people who dropped this series (which I really can't blame) and people who don't care about the first part get a lot more out of this than someone like me. So, despite the fact that I think it's a good recap, I gave it 2/5 on the poll because I, personally, did not find it very good for someone like me, who's seen all the previous episodes.
“You get used to it, you act friendly, and you become a shell of your former self. At some point, you would package this situation, labeling it as “every day”, and send it to the depths of your memories. There was no doubt you would try to justify it as something like a memory as well. They say that time is the medicine for everything, an all-cure. But that was wrong. Time was nothing but a slow inducing poison. It gradually eroded things of the past, with the sole purpose of ending things and forcing you into resignation.”
