We are just a bit past the halfway point in the season with most shows at 6 or 7 episodes through their run. Any shows surprise you this season? In a good way? A bad way? Watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes instead of anything modern? Let’s talk about it!

      I just finished the “episode 0” and it was quite good. Definitely dropping us into the middle of the story as I understand it.

      It did seem a bit shock porn-y though.

      Well, I don’t know the answer to your question as I am unfamiliar with the source. However, trying to find out more about this caused me to discover that AniList only lists the movie versions of this series, and doesn’t have a page for the show. So, it isn’t something that is possible to request a discussion thread automatically via @rikka@ani.social.

      I still want to keep discussion threads limited to being created by the bot, so if you (or anyone else reading this) want a discussion thread about the show, message me and let me know and I will create one manually.

        The Anilist mods aren’t absolutely positively sure that the TV series isn’t going to be just the movies cut up into 24 minute episodes.

        CR being weird about not announcing things the usual way is throwing them off.

        MAL is saying that the TV is going to be the movies with additional scenes.

        https://myanimelist.net/news/71095177

        With 2 movies at say 2 hours each, that’s about 4 hours, or 240 minutes of footage.

        To make 18 episodes of 24 minutes that’s a total of 432 minutes.

        They save 3 minutes per episode with the OP and ED, so for 18 episodes that’s 54 minutes.

        So 432 - 240 - 54 = 138 minutes of actual new footage, not including cleaning up, different transitions, editing, etc.

        That’s an average of 7m40s of new footage per episode

        That’s quite a lot of new footage.


        The closest comparison that I can remember is Demon Slayer Mugen Train, that first came out as a movie, then was split into 7 TV episodes.

        The Mugen Train movie was 116 minutes, and 7 episodes x 24 minutes would be 168 minutes

        168 - 116 = 52, subtract an additional 21 minutes for OP and ED, and there should have been about 32 minutes of additional footage

        That was about 4m34s of new footage per episode.

          Update I just got from that thread is that an entry has been created: here. From episode 2 onwards, it should be requestable from the bot.

          Tagging @ludrol@bookwormstory.social for visibility since you brought this to my attention.
