Production and release

Crit Recap Animated is the spiritual successor to Critical Recap, a series where Dani Carr summarized the events of the previous episode or batch of episodes on the Critical Role set and added her own commentary. Critical Recap stopped airing in video form after "Unwanted Reunions" (2x88) and continued as blog posts written by Dani available every Wednesday on the Critical Role website.

Crit Recap Animated episodes are uploaded to Critical Role's YouTube channel approximately bi-monthly and also air during the half-time break of the following episode of Critical Role live on Twitch and YouTube.

Trivia

  • In "Meet the Mighty Nein", the order the characters were introduced in is nearly identical to the order the players introduced themselves in the game, with the exception of Fjord and Beauregard, who switched places.
  • So far, all of Campaign Two's special guests characters have been voiced by their respective players with the exception of Shakäste and Spurt, who do not have a speaking role.
  • "Come Together" included a globe, featuring the first depiction of the Shattered Teeth from an official source. The arrangement and shape of the islands is similar to the fan-made depiction first used on this wiki.[1]
  • After Nott shares her backstory in "The Gentleman's Bargain", Caleb answers with "That's rough, buddy", quoting a famous line from Avatar: The Last Airbender, where it was spoken in a similar context. The line was used again by Jester after Yasha shared her own backstory.
  • "Iron and Blood" features vignettes of Keg, Nila and Caduceus that mimic the template used to announce new playable characters in the Super Smash Bros. video game series.
  • In "Family Ties", Keyleth is briefly seen through the portal.
  • In "The Sword and the Angel", the Mighty Nein perform the Ginyu Force fighting pose from Dragon Ball when they are about to stop Obann from stealing the heart.
