most intelligent post so far lol
I don't get why people keep saying the ending was perfect and there's no need for a sequel as it might "ruin" it... the ending wasn't perfect lol it was rushed as hell and generally felt awkward.. so doing a sequel with better pacing entices me
The writing was too damn good for it not to be at least worthy of watching. Not to mention they can basically start from scratch (aside from a few time travel rules and character outcomes) and create their own story without relying on Steins;Gate and making it feel too much like a second season. Also, they've had plenty of time to reflect on the series so I don't imagine they're only writing it to get the hyped fanbase into a frenzy and thus rush it. I imagine it won't be as good as S;G, but I'll still really like it
Behold! The way is clear! We're free! I, the mad scientist, Hououin Kyouma, have triumphed under a twofold assault, from SERN and the Organization, by twisting the very fundamentals of time and space! The world as we know it has been put to rights, and a future of chaos awaits us. This, my friends, is the choice of Steins;Gate!
People shouldn't really misunderstand. It's canon, though indirectly and barely mentioned, because it's basically Okabe's first fuck up in attempt to save Kurisu. It's basically his journey until the point in which he creates the mail he sents to his past self. I don't understand why it's considered a "sequel", since it derives from the main story. But it does affect the main plot though, because if S;G 0 fucks up the existing laws of time travel like the movie did, then yea the overall story of S;G degrades.
Yeah either way I'm happy, if this goes well then we can see more of stein gate in the future which I think will be a good thing really, even if its terrible we will still have the original anyway. Plus even if they mess it up a little with the cannon they can just do a different time line better with the undoubted flood of hate that will force them to from japan alone.
I literally just finished the anime ova and movie today, now a sequels coming out? Perfect! Didn't it say Kurisu was still trapped in another timeline? Like a scenario where she was never saved by Okabe?
welp, time to rewatch the original series + that crappy movie and see if this is good news or not. really liked the original - not a masterpiece the way many see it, but still a really good story with great characters and flow.
