This is a list of episodes of the anime adaptation of the manga Rec. The episode titles of the anime are based on Audrey Hepburn films, due to the admiration the female protagonist, Aka Onda, holds for the actress and the overall tie-in of Hepburn references. Also, in each episode, Aka recites at least one quotation from the movie in question. An extra episode was later released as an original video animation which took place between episodes seven and eight in the series' internal chronology.
