Another special for this franchize recapping Seikai no Senki.
Compared to the previous recap that didn't work as a stand alone, this one is longer by 30 minutes which may sound weird because SnS was basically 13 episodes of space battles, the producers could have easily made a one hour special revisiting the important moments in preparation for SnS II. But doing it this way we actually got an interesting movie, scenes tie up together, the pacing is very good and it feels that you're following the story develop from point A to point B naturally and not forced.
I didn't analyze it so much as to
point out the extra scenes, I missed them but not noticing them means that they weren't that impactful or they were used in minor areas to make it look better as a one episode special, the story developments are the same as the TV series, it's useless to wrap your head around that.
In the end, it was a very good recap which I can recommend it as an alternative for the main show. I even recommend it to total newbies because we get all the background info in the first minutes, Seikai no Monshou was a prologue story anyways, the real deal starts with SnS when our main duo is in the Space Force and fights in the war.
