SYNOPSIS

The Ideon rises for the first time on SoloA clip show episode, with around a minute covering the Buff Clan legend of the Ide taken from the fifth episode, around nine minutes of footage from the first episode, around six from the second, around four from the third and a brief voice-over stating that the colonists are still on the run from the Buff Clan.

As well as the new narration, Karala has a few amended lines to give the impression she's reciting the legend to Mayaya on their Kopola before they arrive on Solo. Aside from this, the episode is entirely recycled material.


REVIEW:

It does the job, remaining coherent despite its' run time being cut by two thirds, though this may just show how much disposable stuff there is in the early episodes. That said, the first trio of episodes aren't bad in their own right and this doesn't mesh with the surrounding episodes well enough to work as a catch-up. Bottom line is it's a money-saving clip show that at least doesn't try to pretend it's anything other than a recap.
