Recap episode was a bit boring and was over the place.

I fell asleep. Twice.
What I hate about recap eps is that I always hope they reveal something new(it was nice to get a speech from the photographer), and am always dissapointed when they don't/reveal something useless.But if I skip, I always think about missing something(in this case, Dominic's decision to visit Bellforest and some extra info on Gekko-go).
Damn, I hate recaps.

BORING. It would be acceptable for when it was airing but I think most of us can watch these episodes in a week?

Man, glad I'm marathoning this series. Recaps piss the hell out of me.

The new OD was really...different. Cool though, but didn't seem to fit the series. The Ed is pretty good too.

I watched about two minutes of that, in 10 second intervals dispersed evenly throughout the episode, in hopes that something new would arise.

Next episode plez.

I think this episode was just what the anime needed actually. It answered a lot of question I had about the history of the Gekko-Go and the so called outlaws who stole it. Overall, excellent episode.

The first half strongly reminded me of Evangelion. Especially with Stoner being the narrator. When Renton screamed, I swear I thought he was another Shinji Ikari.

I Agree It did answer a lot questions and gave us a bit more background for the plot. Its a turning point for the story...Finally ^_^

Yeah this episode had a lot of information people have been asking for, so I don't know why everyone's saying there's nothing new. The new stuff is mostly in the dialogue.

Well, they just finished 13 episodes, so I assume they also finished a season.

That, and this really does give a lot more details about who/what/why/how things came to be. So I liked this episode. I always like setting details like this.

It was alright

Some good pieces of information here and there

Overall, just a recap episode.

Just a recap episode, but one that wasn't painful. And that's something I can appreciate.

What helps is that it's also really interesting in its philosophy. Utena did something similar where the recap episode re-contextualized the preceding episodes and made you think about them differently with a different light cast on them.

Just watched it to hear Dominic's sexy voice. Since I'm watching it dubbed I'm just fooling around on other websites while listening in.

1/5 cause recaps suck.

I dont like when they blend a recap with new information. atleast it was interesting how they shone a different light on the series. some cool new info as well. like stealing the gekko ^ ^
well, i gotta say it seemed like they were trying to pull a psychological neon genesis evangelion scene at first, just toned down a little.
the protag is starting to be a leetle more three dimensional, but i still think eureka's kinda a bitch.

Sure 95% of all recap episodes are dull and boring and don't add anything new either. But once in a long while there are recaps like this one that are presented in a special manner that isn't boring and at the same time adds NEW important information. For a recap episode I liked this one, sure it was a bit boring compared to a normal episode but for a recap it was actually good.

People are simply too prejudiced and once they find out that it's a recap episode they immediately think it sucks and skip it. I for one am glad that i watched it as it made me understand certain things more clearly and learn new things as well. But this episode definitely can be skipped during a rewatch though, since then it won't have any added value.

Well it was nice listening to Dominic's voice. We do learn a bit of new information/clear ups, and yeah it was a good recap in terms of how it wasn't completely a recap. But idk, I find it a lot of times when new information is being narrated, it's not good writing because good writing imo is when you include everything in the story by showing and not telling. But since this was meant to be a recap, and they only added these info in to make the recap less boring, I won't complain too much :P but it was still boring.

A new op and ed starting with a recap that ain't the best idea... the way they handled the recap wasn't that good either so it wasn't that interesting in general but well let's see what's next!

Well, pretty much a recap episode. A few new scenes and explications, but nothing amazing.

The new OP and ED are really cool, love their chilling vibes. Also, from the ED, look like Renton is becoming quite famous.
