A good amount of effort was put into editing it, so it's not like they were being lazy. It's probably the best recap episode I've seen. 3/5

Good recap in my opinion. The music alone made it worth the watch. =p

After episode 9, i skip alot of episodes.So i don't know what is all about.
Recap of Kamnia was good.
Sighs After hearing Nia's voice, she is stupid. Time to drop this show. Should not have Kamnia get killed.

Ok so I put this series on hold for the second time a year ago at episode 15, and I'm giving it another go now.

I still am not completely over Kamina's death, but I think I'll hold out until the end this time. It was a real heart-felt joy to see him again in all his glory.

Nice recap, everything came back to me instantly.

I'll see you all at the last episode.

Fast forwarded the video lol. The kissing scene between Yoko and Kamina...still leaves a bittersweet feel to it.

Now time for the time skip!

One of the best recap episodes I have seen. The combination of scenes and the music was very good. I felt that there were some noticable gaps though.

Looking forward to seeing what happens after the time skip.

The statement below is true.

Recap episode. Got to say it's pretty well done unlike most anime.

in summary, this episode serves 1 purpose, to show us exactly why (in 24 minutes no less) TTGL shits right the fuck over all other anime.
the way they did this was quite good as well, they actually put some effort into it, and the compilation eyecatches were awesome to see.

Eh, it's a recap. Nothing overly special. For a good spot for one, since a....7 year timeskip is coming up? Wow, that's interesting. I wonder how the characters will look different now.

I'll just post my thoughts on the series so far here:

+Great characters
+Unique story
+Has it's own style, which has been pretty entertaining
+Epic plot twists I never saw coming
+/-"Spiral Power".....what?
-Pacing felt too rushed
-Needed more episodes to really flush out the world
-Too many things I fear won't be answered or elaborated on more now
-A little too over the top at times
Overall: 8/10
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

defienitely one of the more effort filled recapsout there
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

I thought they were going to do something different for a recap but nope just a boring ol recap. Iv seen other animes do a better job.Yoko has become much better since the death of kamina so im curious to see more of her later.

I was going to skip this episode, but it started in a cool way so I watched the whole episode and I don't regret doing it.

The only good part was the new ED and the preview. I guess that's to be expected of a recap, though.

Good recap, but I didn't watch all of it.

I remember it very well as I started this anime yesterday, so.

That was actually a decent recap episode. Seeing Kamina again was nice, the music choice was ...interesting, and I loved all the drawings/sketches they showed during the credits, that was cool to see. Looks like the next arc is 7 years later and Simon has a new voice actor (he is in his 20s now, I think). That'll take a bit to get used to. I wonder if Nia and those two kids and Forehead also have new voice actors? We shall see.

Better than the average recap episode. Holy crap, a seven year time skip!? I wonder where the story will go. Onto the next episode!

Pretty boring. A recap episode was not needed at all. Although I like how they featured all of the eyecatches form episodes 1-15!

The pronunciation of Adiane's name has always bugged me though! Based on my understanding of Japanese phonetics (which is limited as I have only learned it from anime lol), I feel like her name should be pronounced: "Ah-dee-ah-neh" but they always say it like: "Ah-dee-ne"!!!!! Ugh!

Interesting I would not expect them to skip 7 years into the future. I thought that whatever was gonna come would have come right away. Next episode seems pretty cool though.

Dropped this show at episode 5 a year ago. Continued from episode 7 a few months ago and dropped it again after the first episode. Read the list of episodes summary for episode 8 about 10 hours ago and saw that Kamina was going to die. That's what got me back into this anime -- the character that everybody loves dying. I actually like the show now that he's gone, and some of their old hijinks are back with the last few episodes (I completely skipped the beach episode), but for the most part, it's more enjoyable and less obnoxious. I absolutely love time skips. Always have, love it when we get to see how characters have grown and changed. How the world's changed. Simone is my favourite character (if only because he is the least obnoxious, the most fleshed out and not just a fanservice character with superficial depth). So, uhh, maybe Simone is just my least hated character, then. Oh well, he was the only character I was excited about seeing change. Hearing him in the PV (English dub), looks like Lelouch is spearheading this operation. Hopefully, Simone also takes lessons from Lelouch's personality and smarts.

Umm, yeah, right, the recap episode. Skipped most of it. I'm sure TV watchers and people who dropped this series (which I really can't blame) and people who don't care about the first part get a lot more out of this than someone like me. So, despite the fact that I think it's a good recap, I gave it 2/5 on the poll because I, personally, did not find it very good for someone like me, who's seen all the previous episodes.

I must say they put the recap in a good place. The episode it was pretty ok I suppose. Really liked the ending.

Recap was well done, something other than just literally a few scenes put after each other without any other editing.

Anyhow, preview mentioning that seven years have passed ... looked REALLY interesting, excited for it.

Recaps are naturally bad. But why rile up the audience by saying it's a gonna be a great compilation that's done the proper way, only to be stiched up flashbacks?

Yeah I zoned out and skipped til the end.

There have been awesome recaps. One of the top of my head is the Dennou Coil one where the story up til now is retold from one of the main character's brother, a side character that's being constantly bullied by her oppressive sister lol. Stuff like complaining to the mum to change to a western cereal breakfast and then disliking it after three days and forcing the brother to eat it under the 'official mum endorsed' more food more growth policy.

Another is standalone complex, where all the previous investigative information in regards to the laughing man case are covered as well as an online virtual discussion where further leads are made. They saved money by using the same scene in the live virtual discussion show and using footage that they will use again in the future. Similar to Ergo Proxy which was a quiz show.

I haven't watched it for quite some time so the recap was kinda useful for the first quarter of the anime.

Seeing the cue cards and Kamina again was nice~
