Do they seriously need to do a recap of first... like 5 episodes? I watched it, it was kinda fun, I guess it's true I don't really remember any details, because how flat a plot and characters are...

I guess they have just problems with production, so they put together recap episode to delay next one of week. Is it like that or do they released it simultaneously? I doubt it.

Honestly, if this delay means that the next episode will be better than the last 5 then im fine with it. Maybe they wont make everything look bad with CG.

Comparing it to the ln, the anime feels rushed like a recap already, so this recap would be a recap of the recap :P

this recap is probably the best anime this season, better than anything that came out so far and better than the show itself

You guys are so nasty lmao, this is for droppers, that allows 'em to see if they had made the right move or not, weeks ago

Nah seriously, this is just weird... Nothing really important happened during these 5 episodes, that is just pointless to give a recap but whatever.

Well with all the "plot" from the first 5 episodes this will be less than 10 minutes recap.

The first 5 episodes were an adaptation of the first LN volume... So maybe they did this recap because of that.

If they need time to finish an episode they really should do something better than a recap episode.

My point exactly. They could just skip a week or use the recap to fill the voids and attune it better to the source material. Otherwise, it's wasted money... everything.

Any anime that does a recap 6 - 12 episodes in is almost invariably a garbage ass anime that is stalling for time. They're not recapping because it's necessary but because they needed more time or simply just did not want to / could not deliver.

The only reason for producers to make a recap episode for a short show, is because of trouble with animating the rest. I've read somewhere that the budget wasn't very high for the show (just looking at the terrible CGI animation also confirms that), so the animators are probably taking an extra week to sort out some problems for the rest of the show.

Do perople really think recaps are there to remind people what happened? It's just a way for studio to stall for time when they can't keep up with production.

But I do admit I'm disappointed. Watching this anime might be simple pleasure, but it's a pleasure.

Heck comparing it to the already rushed manga it feels rushed.

I honestly hated the orcus labrynth section of the manga, but i was hoping we'd actually be out of said labyrinth this week.

Nobody needed this.

I don't understand the need for recap episodes as filler. It is more work to create the filler, and that time could have been used to make their next episodes better. I have less of an issue with just not getting an episode than getting a recap. No episode tells me they care about their art. A filler tells me they needed to appease a suit.

This series was already poorly adapted as it is. We did not need this.

Wow, i'm getting Beatless flashbacks here. A recap in a 12/13 eps show is just the worst. And of course this show is actually one of the few Anime this season i like to watch asap.

this shouldn't be a question "Do we need this?" but "Do they [studio] need this?"

and this recap is another evidence that there were some problems behind the scenes. I wonder if there is in english detailed or not explanation.

they could but it would be just wasted money from ads, airing slot, etc and this recap was just place holder, because it's always better to broadcast something then nothing..
Do you really think that Fire Force didn't lose money by having relatively short hiatus?

The answer is always the same - re-air the first episode. They've done this in the past with varying degrees of success, but if you have to air something you might as well air the first episode to capture a potentially new audience. There is literally nothing to be gained from a recap episode in this situation. It's not like they have nothing to air.

The only time we need a recap is between seasons when there has been months or years, in this case the lazy fuckers just couldn't make the episode on time, which is fucking incredible given the horrible quality of the animation, literally the only thing that looks good in the whole series is yues eyes

we don't need recap episode moreover when the target is only 13 episode. unless we have 24 - 26 episode like steins gate 0 or yu-no then it's okay but keep it 1 recap only. don't give us 4 recap like what happen to beatless, it is very stupid i think.

for people who absolutely need recap then it's okay, but don't complain if they give us recap again after some episode. because recap usually to give short review for what happen in 10 or more episode not to give time for them to deliver more good adaptation

if they really want to give good adaptation then stop in episode 5 for this season and continue the next episode at the next season, that is absolutely more better rather than giving recap when they only have 13 episode

Recaps shouldn't be a thing for 1 cour shows unless they are aired the week before a second season airs years later

They actually needed to make a recap? Lmao the anime is terrible cringe given a perfectly described form, what it there that we would need to recap? Him killing, killing, killing, being a pedophile, killing more, killing, killing, getting god powers from anything and finding a free mansion with even more god powers for nothing?

Short answer no we do not, it has only been 5 episodes. Should have seen it coming though, the next episode is the one I've been waiting for since he got trapped and started to level up / strengthen himself (whichever way you prefer to say it.) Figures they make me (us) wait another week.
