SHUFFLE! MEMORIES – 01
Full recap this week, with Rin first introducing how the human world became connected to the god world and the devil world 10 years ago. The majority of the episode focuses on Rin talking about each character with scenes from the original series. The order he goes in is himself, Kaede, Shia, Eustoma, Forbesii, Nerine, Primula, Asa, Ama, Itsuki, Mayumi, and finally Benibara.

Although the ED is exactly the same, the new OP was animated somewhat differently. I say somewhat because a good part of it was just shots from various episodes we’ve already seen. Still, there was that shot of Primula sprouting wings and the focus on the girls. The new YURIA song is pretty catchy, and I like it about as much as the original OP.
Well, this was to be expected given how early reports said this show would be doing exactly what it did. I have no idea when they’re going to start showing new stuff, but they have promised it. Next week is supposedly the first part of the Kaede story.
Unfortunately, one of my worries was confirmed. Looking at the end of the episode and comparing it with SHUFFLE! Episode 11, it would seem that this season is going to be censored by things like fog.
