2019, Divergence Ratio 1.048596. The near future, where a device popularly called the PokeCom, packaged with PhoneDroid OS, spreads, bringing the Augmented Reality world close to existence.

Central Tanegashima High School's Robot Research Club is in danger of losing its club status. Kaito Yashio, one of only two members, is only obsessed with robot fighting games, showing no interest in the Robo Club even in this situation. The reckless, useless club head, Akiho Senomiya, aims to complete a giant robot, struggling hard to avoid losing the club's status.

Then, one day, Kaito discovers the A.R. annotation that becomes the Kimijima Report. Written in that report is the indictment of someone named Kou Kimijima's conspiracy involving the world.

For this review I will make references and comparisons to two other anime: Chaos;Head(2008) and Steins;Gate(2011). While all three of these anime adaptations were made by separate studios, they drawn upon the same series of visual novels for source material.
Now to begin the review. I'll start with the story. Like Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate Robotics;Notes has a story line that could only be described as thrilling. While the story started off at a slow pace it gradually built until I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation. They really pulled out all the read more

my main impression: whoever came up with the original concept as well as the script writers for this anime need a really good editor, who can wrangle their ideas into something that actually hangs together structurally and makes sense. because there were plenty of ideas here, quite possibly too many, and the result is a hodgepodge of giant plot holes held together by spit and enthusiasm.

i can't remember the last time i watched an anime that was so meticulously produced, so overall pretty, so well animated and orchestrated, and found it such an unholy mess on the inside, which ultimately left me unfulfilled.

Robotics;Notes opened strong by asking some important questions, but failed at executing all of its ideas in a timely manner. However I think this series has several saving graces that make it currently one of my favorites. I want to mention that this is an idea I have wanted to see executed for a long time.

The story had enough twists in the beginning that I held my faith for quite a long time in the writing even when I found it questionable. My issue came from when the series began to suffer emotional whiplash. An episode can be very inspiring or focus on romantic read more

I was really looking forward to an anime adaptation of Robotics;Notes, the third visual novel written by Hayashi Naotaka-shi for the collaboration of 5pb. and Nitroplus, because previous two series came from it were really neat with ChäoS;HEAd being a rather promising start and Steins;Gate being just stellar. So no wonder I have a lot of things to tell now.

Robotics;Notes begins with our protagonists, Yashio Kaito and Senomiya Akiho, the only members of school’s robotics club, trying to save the said club from shutting down. And that’s a huge step down from Steins;Gate in terms of a story. I mean, Steins;Gate had university students as read more

Anime: Steins;Gate
Both has the same Visual Novel Company and it makes Science Fiction very realistic. A little bit fun in the first, but it will be getting very serious about the story and it can make you believe what will happen in the future.

Anime: Hyouka
-Both male protagonists have to take care of a peculiarly eccentric girl
-Both male protagonist was forced to solve a mystery
-Both anime have clubs
-Both anime are school life with balance mystery/comedy and drama.

The difference between these two anime:
Hyouka is more on mystery to solve while robotics;notes is more on making a robot.

Anime: RideBack
Both shows feature a few teenagers who are interested in mecha and the setting is in the not-too-distant future. The teens spend a lot of their time in a garage and discuss the robots. Also, in both of the series, there is a bit of politics/conspiracies mixed in. Although the vibe of both series are a bit unlike each other - some of the character's personalities in both series are similar to each other. For example, both the RN and RB main female characters are persistent and are focused on reaching their goals and have a bond with their robot/RideBack.

Anime: Kamisama no Memochou
Both maincharacters kind of wander off all the time, dealing with mysterious events, that makes both similiar.

Anime: Mobile Police Patlabor
For those who are looking for fights and crime involving robots at civil level. They also carry a main suspense as the individual short stories carry on.
