the first 2 episodes (61-62) happened exactly as i had written them. Episode 63 was only the first half of the episode 63 that I wrote. Episode 64 was a combination of the last half of 63 plus the first half of 64. Episode 65 was the second half of the written 64. I followed a similar pattern down till about episode 69. This was mainly to keep the episodes under ten minutes and to maintain what i had written in the earlier part of the season. Because for whatever reason the first 8 scripts were way longer then the last 7. For example episode 72, was originally intended to be episode 70, but i've been pushing things down the line to the point where we are 2 complete episodes behind.
Does this mean the last 3 episodes will be longer? Not really, 73 and 74 should still be under 10 minutes. But since episode 75 will essentially be the combination of the original 73, 74, and 75, I expect it to be quite a bit longer.
So perhaps this is why the hidden one feels that this episode would have been more appropriate earlier in the season, because originally, it was supposed to be lol
Well, what I meant to say was, scenes like Zubashi/Gangles training the ninjas probably should have been earlier in the season. Maybe I didn't explain it correctly.
Interesting that some parts were suppose to be early episodes. I suppose it's possible if the split hadn't happened, some issues I had may have been contained in one episode and be less of a season complaint. Although, there are still some issues I have with the season that wouldn't be fixed by this, but until I put my full review of the season I'm not going to go over. (I don't feel like bumping every other season 5 episode thread and some issues belong to more than one episode. Of course, that's not to say that every season 5 episode had many issues, or that I'm not enjoying the season. I am enjoying it.)
I am very interested to see how Episode 73, 74 and 75 turn out. I'm curious to see if they'll change my mind on one or two things. Although I do feel my opinion on one or two issues probably won't change because of the finale.
