If the flashback shows important highlights only for a short few seconds would be fine but if it drags too long then it will only be shortening the actual episode by a lot then it will become very very annoying.

Can be very irritating if not used correctly or used way too often.

That's a different type of flashback, but I don't know what kind of flashback the creator was refering to. Character Origin flashbacks are good; in fact, they can be really cool!


oh really???...i thought its like when a person remembers his past or sumthin

Examples of cool origin flashbacks: episode two of Trinity Blood when Abel is having that dream, or Trigun episode 17 (or somewhere around there) Haven't you seen an origin flashback!?

Nah. I don't mind them much 'cause they show the "past" of the characters whether gloomy or not.
Ha ha, also, the flashbacks usually shows the character's childhood, just like at code geass.
(Lelouch is cute since then.)

lolz.

Well, the only thing I don't like 'bout them is when they are too long that
they tend to take up much time or sometimes the WHOLE episode!

wOOt~

Well, that's true, right?

An example of a LONG and REDUNDANT flash back
(but not taking the whole episode as flashbacks) is Gundam seed DESTINY, right?

The story is always reminiscing what had happened at Gundam Seed.
Though, nobody can blame the series for it really tackles the past.

Flashbacks are okay...if they're not abused. But most anime abuse them. They have flashbacks of things that happened...five minutes ago. Ugh! And then there's recap episodes! I hate recap episodes...just full of flashbacks. It's awful if they don't let you know ahead of time too because you're all like, "Oh yay! The new episode is out!" then BAM! Recap episode. Lame.

Oh, and when episodes always begin with the same flashbacks...that's annoying too.

When used properly, flashbacks bring with them some extent of dramatic value.

If an entire episode is a flashback, ignore. Recap episodes are a waste of space.

flashbacks are just to fill in time if they were from previous episodes
