THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Just a recap episode with most of the zombie madness happening around the middle. I kinda like the end art of the recap though.
Can't wait for the show to return again! Lol @ the tags
Unnecessary. Waste of time.
A recap is totally not needed here. If it was a 2-cour then a recap could be useful halfway through. But a 12 episode anime doesn't need a recap episode. Episode 7 should've aired instead. What a waste. I don't even know why I watched it. I should've skipped this thing.
Totally unnecessary recap for 6 episodes of a 1-cour series, with no new scenes or anything... But the show's actually good, so it's tolerable enough. It's no SAO II recap, thankfully.
But I'm pretty sure the recap was already planned, probably just to give them some more time to work on later episodes? Anyway, I liked it. Plus Funimation now has subs for the OP (...probably for the ED song, too, but we didn't get an ED this time). Yay.
The nice part about recaps is you can easily skip them with no real losses incurred in your understanding of the show. With shows that mix recaps and flashbacks into every episode you have to skip through every single one or watch them all: it's such a pain in the butt.
I didn't really mind the recap. Some parts of the story was difficult to keep up with especially for me since I wasn't keeping up with it each week, it's saving me a lot of time having to follow back through episodes just to remember what was going on so I'm glad they made it anyway
