This is the first anime episode related post here in TanTango — but let me just say that the following post is not going to be pretty.
Fans are led to dismay learning that season 2 starts with a re-run of episode 8 in season one. I actually let that slide since I don’t recall memories of season one anymore, so I thought a refresher was nice. Episode two was named “Endless Eight” and this time, the episode felt like a filler — but not. Come episode three, which is also called “Endless Eight”, it became a truncated version of episode 2 plus feelings of Deja vu and the knowledge that the world has been experiencing the same summer for more than 15,000 times. Okay, plot twist. Forgivable.
…and now, I am to discuss episode four…
which is a total repeat of episode three — without add-ons, just different outfits.
Sure some say “third time’s the charm!” but this is just mindfuckery.
The only thing that stuck to me is that this iteration is supposed to be the “15,499”th time. Which means that the next episode, which I’m fucking sure is going to be looped again, will be the 15,500th episode.
I hope that number actually means something. Because I actually wanted something to happen in this episode only to find disappointment.
I think I was right when I said they’re running out of materials to make episodes out of.
