OK, what the hell happened during the second half of this episode? Seriously. We don't need any more damn recaps or another synopsis. Move the story! I'm really starting to get irritated.

Cutting major corners here under a tight budget. At least the first half was pretty good.

This was done by the second director probably after the first one walked out and the mangaka said she wouldn't allow a second season. It looks like they are just filling the timeslot with a recap using already animated clips. What a pity....

We'll see what episode 25 looks like (also by the second director) but I don't have any great hopes. Episode 26 was done by the original director so if we're lucky it will be an adequate season closer, but not a series closer.
Please don't feed the trolls!

What the fuck. This has to be the most poorly managed series I have ever seen, which is a shame because the source material just seems great. I really wish this was done by another studio.

It was awesome. It could have made a perfect ending for the series. But Yukino is evolving faster than Arima is, and now he still needs her while she doesn't anymore...

So they have finally developed telepathic link :P but leaving that aside, what the ... was wrong with director's group of this show. It seems so randomly composed together as if it was school project.

Why even make an adaptation when you clearly don't have enough material to fill all the episodes?

This episode was literally shit. The first half was actually interesting albeit hammered down an issue we've been reminded about 800 times prior. But the second half was absolutely terrible. Lol @ using the OP twice. Lol @ using the "Please watch in a bright room and at a distance" like 3 times. This is just way too painful Gainax, you took a great rom-com and turned it into an abysmal penny pinching shitfest.

What the actual fuck was this shit?

The first half was bad enough with some awful thrown together directing while going over their relationship yet again although it did nicely sum up their feelings and show how far they've come I guess. The second half was complete garbage. So disappointed and up until episode 18 this series was so well done.

I consider clip show episode to be one of the worst sin of any series and this anime has 3 of these.

3 !!!

Cardboard cutouts, crappy chibi animations, still shoots are way better. At least they and something. Clip shows just fill the time with NOTHING.
The fact that it is actually good hurts me even more.

But well.. I think I'll finish 2 episode of this torture and read the manga

Man. What a disaster. It seems to happen with every show Anno had directed up until that point. Gunbuster, Nadia, Evangelion, now here.... Jesus that really is every show.

At first I thought I was watching a vid that was borked, the intro starting playing again and it gave yet another recap and then another and ANOTHER. Then I come here and see that yep, it was done intentionally. Frustrating, this series hasn't been that great to begin with, there really is no true depth to the characters after all, a true waste to the first third or so of the anime which had the potential to be something much better but now... meh. Two eps to go, time to finish this and never watch again.

1st half: Wonderful, it didn't start with a 5 minute recap.
2nd half: Crap.
