This is only a Recap from the first season so it's good to watch after many years if you want to refresh your memory or you're an anime completionist like me.

It takes content from episodes 1 to 13 as said in the synopsis so it's not full of information. I wish this recap were from the 24 episodes but maybe they don't do it cause it'd be too long, idk.

I'd suggest ...
