Huge disappointment honestly. While being a step up from the original SAO, it still suffers from a lot of the poor character development, droning on simple issues for padding and ESPECIALLY the dumb fights. Watching the final fight in episode 5 actually made me angry.

I never understood the point of a recap in a 12 episode series. Some series do it, some not, but frankly it just feels like a waste of time. Honestly if there are some studio issues they could just delay the episode.

WHY do we even need a recap to begin with? Why do all anime have recaps!? Just make it into a movie why don't cha!?

So wasting a week of air time for a pointless recap. Yare Yare Daze
Don't believe the hype.

Will this replace episode 6 this week?

Is anyone's memory really so poor as to necessitate a recap episode after five episodes?? I'd rather they just took an off week and used those resources toward the actual show, assuming this is replacing the episode this week.

Does the full 125 minutes really need to be condensed to one single 25 minute episode? XD

Recap is not padding but production issue.

I never had any kind of expectations for this anime and they manage to still outplay me. A recap episode after 5 eps in an anime with 0 plot. GG

Ps: quick reminder that this gets added to the database but the JoJo movies dont.

Its not like they want to do a recap. They have production issues and they cant just put nothing in their airtime, it would be a waste, so they do a recap.

Its not for nothing a fair amount of anime has 12 episodes instead of 13, its in case problems like that happens. (anyway most of the time)

I didn't say it was. I was talking about the actual show.

Honestly I've been really disappointed with how the show has panned out. Episode 2 was actually great and made me excited for the rest of the series, but everything else has ranged from okay to awful. The entire first episode could have been cut and was pointless. Spending three entire episodes on the Squad Jam with little to no character development (and no Pitohui tf?) just feels way too superfluous. They could have done this in an episode and a half, but here we are almost half way through the season with very little progress character and story wise.

The biggest problem so far is how the action episodes sorely lack interesting things going on with the characters and are just 30 mins of fights with mediocre directing and animation that only acts as padding in the end.

Totally uncalled for recap. As if the show is hard to understand lol. I get it if they do it for a 24 episode series but for 12? Are you kidding me? I'm guessing it has something to do on the studio's end. The quality has been dropping quite lately

My exact feelings. It's a small step up from SAO at best right now.
