Hmm, somewhat of a thrilling episode.

Kusanagi is such an underrated character in this show so I'm actually glad that he is getting more screentime. Playmaker continues to dig deeper into the past 10 years ago. I also can't help but laugh a bit with at how the the two robots were interacting. Amusing.

It wasn't even 10 episodes since the last recap, I would've honestly prefered had they took the week off rather than wasting another episode. According to some other forums I visit, there's a rumour going around saying we got recap so soon after the previous one because there was a significant decrease in the number of outsource studios for the production, most likely because of the poor ratings Arc-V received in Japan (Arc-V had like 7 outsource studios, while Vrains has only 3). The lower number of outsource studios means more time needed to make new episodes, which results in delays and episodes not being finished on schedule, and we get recaps because of those delays, since they have to air something regardless. I don't know if this is true or not, but if it is, it would explain why we got 2 recaps in the span of less than 10 episodes, and most likely means we'll continue getting recaps regularly every couple of episodes, unfortunately.

Expecting a YusakuxAoi moment at the end of the series with a conveniently lit Stardust Road.
At least the next episode looks promising...

A clip show really, we just had one 8 episodes ago, I am starting to worry about the budget of thee show. I don't much to say, we didn't get a new OP and ED, I guess we are going to get a month late since the series got a late start.

When the OP was first announced, it was said that it will be OP for the first year of the show, so don't expect a new OP until April next year.

Damn, another recap. Mostly just skimmed through the episode. Didn't look like there was anything of importance.

Well that was disappointing, another recap episode so soon after the first one. I was hoping for more content--the stinger at the end was definitely interesting, but the rest of the episode was pretty meh. 3/5 from me for this episode.

Recaps are annoying, but I'd much rather the production staff take a break every once in a while and keep up the relatively high (at least for Yugioh standards) production values, and it does fit to have one here.

anyone who had seen both vrains and arc-v can tell that vrains has way worse animation then arc-v (not that vrains has bad animation but arc v had amazing animation for a 150 ep anime)

so sad that we cant have the same quality as arc-v since vrains is the best yugioh series so far , but i guess the failure of arc-v and loss of production value did lead to a better plot so lets hope yugioh gets back its honor

21 episodes in and we have had 2 recaps, has to be a record surely? beginning to become a bit of a joke honestly.

Would've preferred if they named the episode 20.5 for a clearer indication that it's a recap episode. Onward to next week!

best parts of the ep were the stardust reference and Ignis calling Yusaku gay aside from that it's just recap.

How do you literally get away with showing the EXACT same episode from a week ago? How?? How do you do that and not get docked for it? Jfc VRains this is the second time you did this. Pick up the slack.

Bruh another recap episode, are you serious? I've never seen 2 recaps in such a short period of time. Nothing recap worthy even happened.
They must've signed quite a long TV deal and are out of ideas to stretch the story lol?
