Guess I need to catch up on Clannad, if only for this episode.

I always liked the high school part better for some reason. Perhaps because it was a lot funnier, (though not any more awesome for it, mind) and perhaps because After Story kept invoking this nostalgia of times long past.

I still can't hear Nagisa's theme without crying. Damn you Jun Maeda. Damn you.

As for the clip show... I wouldn't think it's just that, given KyoAni. And even if it is, it's going to be a pretty clip show.

If KyoAni still has an artistic touch, then it could be a epilogue and the scenes we have the the preview are Tomoya remembering things while sitting with Nagisa and Ushio.
No, the next episode is definitely a recap/summary. No room for speculation or debate.

May I refer you to the screenshot Proto posted:


Note the kanji 総集編 (soushuuhen)
As humbug23 pointed out...

So it's a pretty clip show.

Fine by me. I'd only be watching it for the announcement at the end anyway.

So that's that then.

And by the way, what's all this speculation about whether it's going to be a pretty clip show. Given that it's going to using footage from the series itself wouldn't it be obvious that it's going to have familiar standards.

Well anyway, here's to perhaps seeing a more compressed version of the story then Toei offered with it's movie.....only prettier.

Probabably because I missed where he said that, instead thinking "Underneath the Green Tree" was the title.

30 seconds per episode

Many shows that use recap episodes are long-running and as a result are rather... low-quality.

This is KyoAni's first recap episode, if I'm not mistaken, and as a result is going to look very pretty compared to other such recap episodes.

That was what I was getting at.

Wow, I haven't though of it like that. The best recap episode ever. Now I can look forward to it.


And that is only half sarcasm!

Air TV, dude. Air TV. The problem is that recap episodes ARE forgettable, look at what it did to Wolf's Rain. Studio name have nothing to do with it and will not change that about recap episodes.
So, at this point, trolling about it is just tactless, pointless and tasteless gloating, if you know what I mean.

There's also the thirteenth episode of Air.

Edit: Ahh, too slow. Distracting phone calls are distracting. ^^;

I know nothing should be expected but clip shows can still contain new material that makes it worthwhile. Remember The Simpsons musical clip show?

I don't. I watched Air in one sitting so I really didn't feel like watching that recap. I skimmed through it just to make sure I didn't miss anything "new".

Some recaps are actually quite interesting though. One that stands out is the recap in Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann in my opinion.

Excel Saga NEVER took itself seriously though, which is why it was awesome.

(What the hell happened to JC Staff, anyway?)

Never seen AIR. (Don't really want to, for that matter.)

An amusing joke would have been "AIR had a thirteenth episode"? but I'm not going to bother.

Ah yes, now that was one recap episode worth watching. If only for the music.


Maybe we can hope for the same with this?

Has there ever been another series where the final episode to air was a recap? Just curious.

Also gotta agree with the Gurren-Lagann recap episode being worth checking out. It was handled very well and stylishly in my opinion. Also there's the one recap episode of Macross called Global's Report which I thought was a very interesting way of going about doing a recap while still trying to make it relevant to the plot as Global's Report does in fact become important later on. Anyway, I do still have to ask what the point of having a recap episode at the very end of a series run is. Wouldn't be terribly surprised if the ratings tank during that week, especially since the story is already over.

At this point of the series, I don't remember a casual viewer who has watched episode 12 and was in the mood to watch the final recap.
