Recap: Total Eclipse breaks the Fourth Wall and makes a desperate appeal for viewers. Yes, they even made the Recap episode weird and awkward.
Jel’s Thoughts: I didn’t even want to watch this episode, let alone write about it, as this was the dreaded Recap episode that pops up from time to time. I just have to comment on how desperate they sounded though. Pleading with viewers with lines like “even if you haven’t been watching you’ll enjoy it!” and the splashing “you’ll enjoy the climax ten times more!” just made me feel sorry for the people still working on this. Then the scenes they rehash like Fikatsia’s boring speeches and Yui “falling in love” with Yuuya are retold like they were these great, life altering moments that we should cherish forever. URRRGGGHHHHH!!!!
The only slightly new info we receive is a few minor details on Cryska and Inia’s background and why they have superhuman combat ability, but nothing we didn’t really figure out already. Any small bits of new info could have easily been told to us during the regular story if the writers were more competent. But hey, at least we got to see the new OP and ED a week early, because that’s really important right? RIGHT?????
