I just watched the REC special after finish REC maybe half a year ago *maybe less* and I just remembered how beautiful and cute Aka was. Also the special had the ED which was never there in the original series. I wish REC was a little longer though now that I think back about it.
The special itself is kind of weird. It felt extremely incomplete and didn’t have much story. Also the episode preview in the special says the next episode is 9, but if looking back at AniDB and previous episodes its suppose to be 8. I guess they were supposedly going to have a total of 10 episodes? *shrugs* Oh well
