Attack on Titan - Episode 13.5

Given all of its production issues and corner-cutting, not only was a break inevitable within the midst of Attack on Titan, it was absolutely required.

So here we are, at this .5 recap episode, and it's an instalment that plays everything pretty straight give or take some cludgy attempts at writing the whole recap into existence via Eren's dreams when calling a spade a spade would probably have worked better.

There isn't really anything more to say here - this quick-fire journey through the story so far, like so many recap episodes, probably doesn't serve the dedicated fans who remember everything so far anyway, nor does it do sufficient justice to the high points of the show to suitably impress newcomers who were somehow living under a boulder left behind by Eren for the past three months.  The only real winner here is the show's soundtrack, which managed to gain even more prominence for its bombastic sounds in recap form, which most certainly is a bad thing.

So, in short - don't bother watching this episode, no matter who you are.  Unless you're a horrible completest.  Like me.
