This recap was actually a really good idea on the companies part. Especially considering that the sequel, Chaos;Child, didn't come out until about 8 years after Chaos;Head. I finished Chaos;Head the weekend prior to the release of Chaos;Child so I would be ready for the new season; I did this with a few shows on my to watch list since they were getting sequels this season as well. Even though I recently watch Chaos;Head, it was still nice to have a quick recap of the major events before getting into the new series. Chaos;Head is kind of a confusing series at
times though so this recap may not help everyone remember the important events. I do feel like it lacked some information, specifically a recap on the ending of the series. I'm still giving this an 8/10 because it actually is a really recap to get you thinking about the events that happened in preparation for Chaos;Child. I won't rate this higher than an 8 though because I still feel like it lacked some information as I already said.
Honestly, this recap is better than the entirety of the Chaos;Head anime. This is a good start to the Chaos;Child anime. It helps us to get ready for the anime, which is great since they adapted the important points on the visual novel. If some of the people are wondering why there is things that weren't in the anime because the studio decided to follow the visual novel more than the anime.
They adapted the quite important points pretty well, the art is fine. Everything else is fine. One thing that I really liked that they added vn-only scenes, it helps people that didn't watch the
prequel before the sequel, although since this recap only gives a quarter of information, you might need to watch/read the prequel.
This recap is okay. I will give it a 6, made me hyped up for episode 1 of Chaos;Child.
What the heck was this? Trying to squeeze an entire visual novel into 12 episodes was one thing but trying to get it all into ONE episode is ridiculous. I has watched the original anime and even I was lost and really confused as to what was going on. My boyfriend, who was watching it with me, was even more confused since he hadn't watched the original.
Story: Just setting up the new gen murders, with very little explanation.
Art: Was pretty good, but was kinda lifeless at points.
Character: Takumi was a complete shell of his former self. Nothing about him being a NEET,
nothing of his delusions, nor his obsession with Seira. Also most of the other characters aren't even in this episode and the ones that are are also shells of their former selves.
Enjoyment: Was confused the entire time.
Tbh, I actaully recommend just watching the original anime over this special, or better yet play the visual novel. This was just a complete clusterfuck.
