because it's a waste of resources that could be used better elsewhere. recap movies are the last thing the anime industry needs.


It's not like they use much resources re-editing these.

And Recap Movies are quite a old trend. Do You Remember Love?...

...and Gundam 0079 ones are classics and good options for lazy/with_little_time people.


Both MS Gundam and Macross: Do you Remember Love have some major differences from the TV anime. Don't forget the Zeta Gundam movies. These are in the minority since all of those were actually decent, but sadly most recaps are filled with massive fail which explains the hate, I never seen a recap that was made after 1999 that was any good (save for Zeta Gundam A New Translation).

I think I'd rather like a recap movie of Ningen Shikkaku. I enjoyed that one and Run Melos was really good too.

Very interested in this
I feel like the series would be better told as a live-action rather than an anime. Only thing that worries me is how it'll be told.

I think that recap of good series is good.
Another reason to rewatch a wonderful thing.

Why even bother? Seriously. A movie? OK. A recap movie? NO WAY.
For the love of God, Japan, stop the freakin' recaps!

They're annoying as hell. You know what happened, and if you want to see it again there's the option of re-watching. No need for recaps imo. If producers want money that badly; start animating another series.

And Shogun Assassin was just a re-editing of the original Lone Wolf and Cub movies...not anime, but badass....

Generally "director's cut" implies there's extra material added back into the movie that had to be cut for various reasons. Considering the subject matter from just the first episode of this arc, I'd say it's safe to assume a fair bit didn't make it to the TV cut.


I'm thinking the same thing. They'll probably add extra material that was not included in the four episodes seeing as they cut off quite a bit from the source material. The movie version will be a little different in that sense. Also, they are only recapping Ningen Shikkaku, not the other stories in Aoi Bungaku. So, I still think it's a good thing. As a fan of the novel, I will watch it. Guess I'll probably be one of the rare few to. :P

Though they would waste some time re-editing them. And it's not that recaps are a new thing, but they're becoming waaay more popular as of late. Like every season there's at least two.

On a different note I was talking to someone who has seen DYRL and they said it was kind of an alternate re-telling of SDF Macross.

A lot of these have been spawning lately.

I will predict the next recap movie.
After F/SN UBW movie we will get a recap movie of the tv series.

What wrong with recap movie eh ?
The developer just want more audience watch their show. Only Broadcasting on TV is not enough these days....
You can see how low rating on japan for TV Anime series.

So, Recap movie = more audience from many levels audience.

If you don't like it, just not bother with it...

For myself, this is a good news. Aoi Bungaku itself from the start it more suited to be Movie, not became TV series like now.

Eh.. recap movies. They only exist to play more money game with existing fan bases. Nothing more than that.

and, announcing recap for the series that JUST started airing is stupidest thing ever. Because now, we have two choices; DROP THIS ANIME AND WATCH THAT FREAKIN RECAP INSTEAD, JUST WATCH ANIME AND DROP THAT FREAKIN RECAP.

So, since it is announced right now, that only purpose of recap is now gone; fucking stupid.

(This whole this is IMO...>_>)

Would save time for people who didn't feel like watching the series~
