Seriously? A recap episode?
It's not like the main character had already explained every single thing.

This recap is more like an advertisement.

What more that was interesting me in this episode were the preview show much more what is going to happen on the next episode.

Changing the world - Crescent Burger !! Damn it looks so tasty. :)
The preview only make me say I can't wait to watch it.

It's a great way to get the people just watching this now up to speed. And it's not like it's taking away a week of story unlike when the Monogatari series does recaps so really, this recap episode is a bonus :)

Studio cannot catch up with the animation schedule?
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

They made this for people who missed the start so they can catch up and for people who want to see some the scenes again.

It doesn't have anything to do with the animation schedule. This recap was aired on another timeslot, next episode (ep.7) is still going to be aired on the usual timeslot.

Heh, this took me by surprise. I don't think it has anything to do with the animation schedule either but anyways, I'm not a fan of recaps so might just skim over this except some of the more important game mechanics part. I love the way this show describes them in details relating to its MMORPG games. Having played MMORPG games before, I think that's a fairly important concept so going through them weekly makes this show enjoyable so far.

Guild's name took me by surprise, too, in ep.6, so I think it kinds of make sense to "make a recap" of how they came to "Log Horizon". I know that it's more of an advertisement from NHK. but it's like watching this recap is a lot better than watching first 6 eps. regularly as they edited well. lol @ the long preview part at the end with black megane pair.

Thinking back, the first six episodes were only the introduction: of characters, levels, classes, foods, skills, cities, PKs, parties, guilds and NPCs. Talking about NPCs, "they" skipped them on this recap, firstly I thought it would cover everything important (is food's taste in game more important than NPCs?), but wasn't the case. I still don't know if the characters have to sleep, if they eat...

Nevermind, they do sleep.

Okay recap, nothing special if you're marathoning the series and pretty pointless too.

This recap was totally unnecessary, it's not like it wasn't explained well enough during the original episodes.
I would understand if it was a recap of the entire season just so people that were about to start season 2 after waiting for it could catch up to what happened.
