The feeling of a letdown when you expect an actual episode but instead get a recap special is a rite of passage in the anime community.
The latest one to undergo this rite is none other than the fans of the twisted magical girl anime titled “Puella Magi Madoka Magica.” After the finale of its additional series, “The Eve of Awakening,” last Sunday, the studio has decided to release a recap episode.
The studio Shaft’s official website “Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story – The Eve of Awakening” recently announced that this week’s episode would be a recap special. The episode will air tomorrow (September 18) at midnight.

According to the description on the official site, the recap episode will cover the events of the entire second season and include an overview of the story to season 1.
Final Season of the Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka series titled “Dawn of Light Dreams” will air in December 2021.
The last episode of the “Eve of Awakening” followed the girls as they fought off against Uwasas controlled magical girls named Mami and Tsuruno. The latter half of the episode ended on a cliffhanger as Tsuruno sustains heavy damage when Yachiyo attempts to free her from the control of Uwasas.
Considering that Magic Record is full of convoluted plot points, a recap special might not be a bad idea for fans who want to have a more nuanced grasp. So, if you are willing to dive into this twisted anime, be sure to catch the upcoming recap special.
