Right now I'm watching Nadia: Secret of Blue Water, and I'm approaching the infamous Island Arc.
Currently I finished Episode 18, and I'm averaging about 3-5 episodes per day. That said, Episodes 23-34 are noted for Hideo Anno's absence and a resulting dive in quality across the board. I've seen folks on anime message boards advising viewers to skip all but one or two episodes (30 and 31 notably) and restart at 35.
So far I'm really, really liking this show. I just love the plot, the characters, the music, and even the animation is remarkable for its time (1990) and feels more "alive" than some series today. That said, I stopped watching the West Wing on Season 4, knowing that post-Sorkin it becomes a different show entirely and wanted to keep my memories of it positive.
I heard that the island arc is nearly all "filler" and doesn't advance the plot in any noticeable way (much like all filler) save for a few short scenes scattered about.
To my fellow Nadia fans on Min-Max, what should I do? Skip the Island and Africa arcs entirely? Only watch a few? Watch as many as I can until I get sick of it and skip right to Episode 35? Or some other course of action?
