Garo HD remake, ep 4 skipped

Post by takenoko » Fri Jul 29, 2016 3:02 pm

So here's something weird. It looks like they went from episode 3 to episode 5 for the HD remake airing. And next week is episode 6. So do you guys want us to keep the original episode numbers and just have a missing 4? Or do you want us to use the new numbering system? Sometimes people revise the episode airing for good reason. (I can't think of any reason why it would be here, besides episode 4 having low ratings).

Do you guys think episode 4 was permanently cut?

I hope they didn't.

It was the first episode in which Taiga was mentioned (now it will 7, since I don't think they will put 4 between 6 and 7), we even see kid Kouga crying.

It was also the episode in which they introduce the green flames around the armour.

It is a weird thing indeed. Didn't they mention anything in the commentary track?

Interesting. Would there be something in that episode that isn't allowed on TV that was in 2004?

If they've decided to switch up the airing order though it's not too bad. Episodes 4 and 5 could be swapped around and not cause any issue in the plot.

It's going to be on the Blu-Ray box set. So it wasn't permaxe. It might show up later.

Hmmm, unless there was some doctor scandal, I can't think of anything that fits. It's not even an episode that has nudity.

You know that because of the number of episodes included on the bluray, right? So it doesn't say where, but it has it.

Maybe the TV schedule doesn't let them air the full show, so they cut an episode? Then again, what a weird episode to cut, it has some important plot elements.

Could they have skipped it because of the guy that stabbed 19 people in Japan earlier this week?

No, the preview for last week showed episode 5 and the stabbing was after it aired.

Technically speaking, these are reruns. They are HD-mastered reruns though. :) Stick with the original airing order.

Ok, I wasn't sure when the HD version of the show airs, and I haven't been downloading this version of Garo HD (waiting until the Blu-ray sourced versions start getting released)

I'll throw out a theory: Maybe they want to air the 2-part version of "Beast of the White Night" as part of the package, but 27 episodes would be an odd series length that would throw the network's schedule out of whack, so their answer is to cut out two episodes in the middle?

Maybe. When an approaching a problem, it's important to ask the right questions. So let's summarize.

First, is this a skip or is this a cut? Because one would mean that episode 4 will air later in the season.

Next, why was it skipped or reordered? If it were cut, surely there must be a good reason why. Like Aberration's theory that they couldn't fit it in the allotted 2 quarter block or something. If it's a reorder, does the new order make more sense than the old one?

I think you should keep the original numbers for the episodes. Hopefully they will air all episodes.

How about an oopsies? Maybe they just forgot to air it. Kinda like...

- Canada Family aired Power Rangers SPD episode "Wormhole" by mistake back in 2005. Maybe the same thing happened here and they forgot to air the episode?

In the original order, Rei makes his debut in Ep #6. I don't see any issue if they shuffle around #4 and #5. I'm reading the summary to each episode and it actually makes more sense. Morax is defeated in Ep #3 and as a result, Kaoru moves into the guest room of the mansion, but that's not until Ep #5. So yeah, it would make more sense to swap those episodes around if that's what they did.

I don't think it was cut cause I don't see a reason. But I could be wrong.

Probably wasn't an accident, since they purposefully changed the preview last week to be episode 5. I remember looking at the script last week, and going huh (I didn't do the initial time shifting) but didn't think anything of it till now.
