Completely unnecessary recap in a super slow-paced and uneventful anime.
Was painful to watch.

Sure, Art and everything is good - since all the scenes where from previous episodes - with the only addition of eventual commentaries from Kirito.

If this was an anime with a complex/deep plot, or even with a medium to fast pacing, this recap episode could be useful. But in a show where you can summarise everything that happened so far in three to five sentences - what Kirito does in the first minute of the next episode - it is completely unnecessary.

Alright pals. It's not a really bad recap episode but well, I expected very much and I'm kinda disappointed. It's pretty much just a mix of everything that happened and... that's it. There is nothing more, nothing less.
So obviously it's a "recap episode" so I should have expected that but... you know... I'm sure A-1 could have done things better.

So obviously the art and sound is as great as ever, the story in itself is pretty good and more original than the last season, it's more deeper and I had a hard time understanding cardinal's story which is a good thing.

that being said, this recap read more

At this point, hating on recap episodes must be a universally adapted circlejerk, and it's definitely annoying sometimes.

This recap, or, for better words, recollection is a retelling of what happened from the start of the season from Kirito's perspective, recapping both us and Alice on the fast-paced tale of Alicization thus far.
I really like the chronological drive for this episode, it makes sense from a storytelling perspective and it does what it set up itself to be, definitely the best recap episode in the series so far.

I guess the episode stands out more like a recap for Alice than for as though, it focuses heavily, read more
