Loved it. My only complaint with this is that i didn't have a Dr. Pepper to drink while watching T____T

More awesome random engrish, Okabe being Okabe and some Feyris on the side delivered the comedy while Kurisu and her memories from the other world lines delivered on the drama. 24 minutes of pure win.
9/10, i never give an OVA a 10 but this OVA gets an A-.
ANY COMPLAINTS I HAD ABOUT THE ENDING ARE NOW GONE.
I would have loved to see their kiss, but I think they ended it at a good spot. Omg look at Okabe working those marriage vows, that line where he said he'd always love Kurisu no matter what world line, time, etc... GUUUUUUURL you've learned well, so smooth. Fuck it's so refreshing for a MC to just go up to the girl he loves and just spit out "I love you, what about you?" without stuttering all over himself.
It was really nice seeing Suzuha's mom. This episode was also damn hilarious. Almost died at Okabe's engrish upon arriving at the airport.
I need more Steins;Gate. I'm 100% satisfied, but I love these characters so much I don't want to say goodbye! Omg seriously though it's like the creators of this show know exactly what to do to please me, I can't believe it. Ugh I want to give it a 10/10 because it pleased me 100% but I'd feel bad about giving an OVA a 10/10 kdfnvkldfnv I need a 9.5/10 lol
This was good... it did a good job in reminding me HOW FUCKING AWESOME THIS SERIES WAS!!!!!!
I'd go to work thinking about this show all day... good thing I only had to do that twice since I watched it in 3 days xD
NIIIICE!!!!!! I love this series and this ova is an excellent follow up! Okabe is hilarious as usual, and he got arrested twice in a day. What a confession... The best in many anime, he is such an excellent protagonist
Also, this helps to clear up a lot of things. FEYRIS IS NOT SUZUHA'S MOM!!!?????

Amazing special; everything i could have asked for; really liked the moments between Okabe and Kurisu, and for people who are complaining about the kiss not being shown, how much of implication do you need; it happened the exact same way it did with their first kiss, same music, same words "close your eyes" as long as we know it happens all is good; its not like we never saw them kiss before. I like how they sealed up the relationships, we get to see Daru future wife and Suzuha's mom, we seal up Okabe and Kurisu so it ended really well; i like how this special was different from the norm, just like the series; I've had enough specials at hot springs or beach so this was refreshing in that sense and was awesome just like the series was 10/10.
Daru's got swag
Awesome episode. Covered a bunch of things, still keeping the comedy, the romance, the characters. Amazing how it felt completed in 20 minutes while whole series take half the episodes to develop anything. Eagerly awaiting for the movie.
So... something like Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal wouldn't get a 10 from people who don't give OVAs 9? Personally, a 9 is a general 10 in my book but 10's are reserved for my personal favorites.
But! On topic... it really summed everything up, perfectly. An OVA like this is more than a cherry on top for watching Steins;Gate. After it finished I felt it was necessary to watch. That it was really episode 25. That feeling is one of a kind.
This special was really good! I completely forgot that in the world line they are now in they didn't retain their memories, or rather they simply think of them as "dreams".
Plenty of comedy still(Lol'd at how Okabe got arrested twice) and laughed at how all the guys were staring at Ruka and said "He's a guy but we don't care!!"
Then of course the best of all was how even in this world line we see that Okabe and Kurisu end up together. Hence the end where Okabe confesses his love once again and she responds saying "close your eyes" where if you remember she says the exact same thing in the TV series when she kisses him.
Well I picked a great time to start and finish Steins;Gate haha. I literally watched the whole series in the first half of this week, and this special felt like a true episode 25.
As people have said, it was great for an OVA. It answered some questions that people had (mainly the one about Okabe and Kurisu), maintained its humor and style from the series, and still satisfied its fans without having to resort to lame fan service.
I look forward to the movie; even if it isn't a sequel to the anime, if the anime is anything to go by, the movie will be amazing.
