Timeshift/flashback episodes in Anime
I Just took a look at the anime Ga-Rei Zero. I really donīt understand the purpose of that timeshift/flashback episodes in some series...
The anime was about avarage the first two episodes, but then the time changed into the past (searched for episode contents and found out that timeline is about ep 3-9->1-2->10-12
I donīt understand that, Iīve never seen a show that became better beacause of that stuff (Record of Lodos War or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, though these two are still good, despite unnecessary shifts)
I want to know if anybody out there like this "stylistic device" or if all feel the way I do.
If anybody knows a good series, badly influenced by unnecessary timeshifts, feel free to post a correct episode order here.
The Theresa backflash in claymore was ok, could have problems accepting Clare as main char after seeing Theresa....
