(Spoilers obviously lol)

This episode is fantastic. THIS is how I wanted Steins;Gate to end. One of my only complaints with the original series is how they had to have episode 24 and how it felt like they undermined the tragedy in the story to give everyone a happy ending. To me, it was like the creators were afraid of leaving it as a tragedy for fear the fans wouldn't like Kurisu actually dying as if to discard the entire point of the series itself: The choice. Who do you choose to let die? Your childhood friend who has become part of your identity? Or the read more

I'm not sure how to feel about this episode as the first 18 minutes didn't apport anything new at all, that is it was just a copy of episode 24.
I had to check twice to make sure I was actually watching Divide by Zero and not a rerun.

I fangirled for the very last bit -how can you not with such adorable characters and the feels of teh previous season still lingering in the air?- but other than that your time is not worth it.

I suggest simply skipping forward, alternatively if you do want to refresh your memory go ahead and watch read more

*This review contains spoilers along with my own opinion bias, read at your own risk, and I really mean it when there's HEAVY SPOILERS for at least the first watcher.*
* Also if you're a first watcher, don't watch the regular episode 23 followed by this alternate episode, watch the series then probably the movie, followed by this.*

Steins;Gate episode 23 β is an episode that was aired on NicoNico when the countdown for newest visual novel from the Steins;Gate series, Steins;Gate 0 ended, which was on December 3rd, logically every S;G fan began to get hyped and anxious about this new episode.

I found this acceptable, but that's about it.

It's made up of over half of the content for the original episode 24, so adds very little extra content. Certainly don't watch it too soon after having watched all of Steins;gate and the movie as I did. After knowing the events of episode 24 and 25 this alternative episode has very little impact and feels quite empty. Perhaps the best time to watch it would be as part of a re-watch of Steins;gate (which I would heavily recommend at some point anyway) instead of episode 24/25 and just before watching Steins;gate 0 when it comes read more
