Should recap episodes die?

Postby MyBalls » Tue Jun 27, 2017 1:04 pm

Am I alone thinking that recap-episodes are the palague of anime-series?

I know we need "something" if the production is stuck, or the manga is not far enough... etc.

But why recap? There are so many other creative way to "fill the void"


For me:
    - I would use AMV´s created by the team or fans

Why?:
    - a fun way to use the "void"
    - a new use of the "old" stuff in a creative way
    - I personaly got in on many anime AFTER I seen an interesting AMV

To expand on that, yes recap should die in much the same way I would like filler to die, all it does is add to the episode count, without adding to the story, in fact it just shows you things your already knew. I'm fine with 10 second recaps at the beginning of episodes but entire devoted episodes to nothing is excessive and egregious.

I wouldn't mind if the ".5" recap episodes go away but I don't mind if they do recaps in a fun way. For example, in Speed Grapher, they actually give the actual cost to various things that happen during the show or with Gatchaman Crowds half-episode recap that they had the characters explained how they change due to meeting Hajime.

Filler is just a necessary evil. There are many cases where filler have drag on too long but I think there are some filler that can be fun like with Dragonball Z with Goku and Piccolo driving cars or the crazy baseball game in Dragonball Super.
