How to deceive anime watchers who has an average IQ?
Step 1:
Make an anime.
Step 2:
Make first 3/4 of the anime boring
Step 3:
Make last 1/4 of the anime epic
And we're done, now people who forgot the first 3/4 of the anime will talk about how epic the your anime is.
This formula was tried on Madoka Magica and Steins;Gate and it works well.

It's more like people who have an average IQ at best are the ones who don't like S;G because they don't understand a thing


The first half of it might not be that exciting, but the second half is better than most anime out there

I noticed whenever these type of threads are made you always post something like this. I agree that 90% of these threads are made by people who just want to shit on such anime and there is no hope for them.But, some of the posters are genuinely curious. In fact when I watched Steins;Gate first I felt very similar to the way OP felt.But after rewatching it I noticed I missed a lot of things and ended up liking it a lot.I even made a similar Re-zero thread once and I got a nice detailed explanation from a user which basically answered all my questions.But, even there without reading all the posts you accused me of making a 'low-effort bait thread'. There are two possibilities when it comes to not liking a highly rated anime.One is simply Incompatibility(i.e everyone has different tastes) the other possibility is they missed a lot of things while watching or had misunderstood expectations while watching and it helps if someone clarifies them.You always blatantly assume it is the first case and post 'Another low effort bait thread'. Just sayin.

I’ve only ever watched it through the once, and the once was more than enough as far as I’m concerned ^_^

It's popular because people like it. It's as simple as that. Now if you don't like it, it's completely fine. Not everyone is supposed to like something. There will always be opposing opinions.

Steins;Gate might be the next no.1 top anime. Steins;Gate diehard fans should take this opportunity to make it happen in a matter of time.

Steins Gate is very slightly overrated for my tastes, but my criticisms of it are different than what most people tend to say.

People say the first half or so is boring. Errr no, it's a chill SOL with a sci-fi mystery backdrop of plot that moves slowly. These people just don't like SOL anime or are shounen tards whose ADD kicks in if there isn't a fight every five minutes.

People say the characters lack depth or development. This is just dumb. A dumb criticism repeated by people who are actually dumb or maybe just didn't have their brain turned on while watching the show. Okabe / Mayuri have a wonderful relationship full of quirks and unique elements, not to mention a great backstory. Itaru is more than the typical fat oktaku type character. Even the side characters like Ruka and Rumiho have depth and development.

The cast of characters and their connection to Akihabara is a wonderful celebration to otaku culture.

My problem with the show is actually with Kurisu. She kind of just exists as this generic tsundere with a tired "smart science girl" trope attached. Everyone goes on about her as a top waifu when she's an awful waifu. Her relationship with Okabe doesn't really go anywhere (though credit to Oukoubakko no Poriomania for stepping it up a notch) and she has hardly any sex appeal. Incredibly overrated character for my tastes. Mayuri would have made a much better romantic interest for Okabe.

Lol, we true Steins;Gate fans couldn't care less about rankings or anything similar. True it represents how much or how many people like it but to force it to become "number one" just because it's your number one or your favorite anime is just an unscientific drivel. It's not the choice of Steins Gate.

Hmm... I'm holding myself back to send hate to this, but its your opinion I guess. I personally love this anime, I'm not surprised its up there with FMAB. Its kinda cool to look at the minorities, it hurts and makes me cringe but at the same time you can kind of see what type of person they are and what state their mind is in.

If you like the action packed shounen type shows (according to your favourites), then Steins;Gate is definitely not for you.

People enjoy it because it tells a good story. It's not mindblowing but it's enjoyable and entertaining which is what people want when being told a story. The change in tone is appropriate for the situation and plot progression. It starts off childish because it's presented as a story about a group of nerdy friends hanging out with a sci-fi element added to it. Think of it as an actually funny version of The Big Bang Theory. The switch in tone is made to present how dire and serious the situation is. You can't expect it to remain slow and comedic when a main character is killed in cold blood.

The characters have their archetypes and tropes but they at least try to give them depth and something to do within the story. Okabe is the only one who grows as a character due to the time loop mechanic. Everyone around him remains the same so it makes sense. Okabe has been presented as a socially awkward person who uses a persona to hide insecurities and embarrassments. So when that mask is broken it's no wonder his mind is everywhere and he doesn't think things through when a VERY short time limit is put on your close friend's life.

It all depends on what you are looking for in a series. You want drama? You got it. You want slice of life and comedy? You got it. A time travel story that actually remains consistent throughout the entire runtime? You got it. A story that has personal stakes? Yes. Yes. Yes.
The enjoyment and entertainment factor is in how simple and grounded the show is.

Of course no series is for everyone so it's okay if you didn't enjoy it. It's easy to understand why one would not enjoy the childish tone of the first half. It's why some people dropped it in the first 6 episodes.

I always thought this has to be an overrated anime, but having just watched it for the first time I am amazed by it.
At first I was put off by the otaku cast and the VN / anime archetypes since that's just not my thing, but after a while it turned into something very different. Not that the first few episodes are bad or anything, it's no generic harem or shounen or anywhere near that level, but I'm always wary of those elements.

In the end I've found that it's a very well-done story with great characters, that each receive quite a bit of development, most of all Okabe. The pacing is pretty fantastic once all the setup is done and I was really impressed with the direction of the scenes and their composition too, it really is a masterfully executed thriller drama. It's all handled in a mature and tasteful manner and with the appropriate gravitas.



I just have to say, I really felt with the characters, Okabe especially, the entire way. It's not often that that happens and I really appreciate S;G for that.
An instant favourite and classic for me. I'll be thinking about S;G for quite a while, I'm sure.

Probably because of Makise Kurisu. Great character design.

Steins;Gate never was boring for me. I was hooked from episode 1. The first half is filled with uneasy tension that really starts to build at episode 5 up until the episode 12 climax. All the while, it allows plenty of time to flesh out its characters and setting. That's what makes the second half so great: since you've spent the first half of the series getting to know the actors in the story so well, things that happen carry a ton of weight; if you took out the first part, or trimmed it down, I don't think the story would flow as well, nor have the same impact.

I like to critically analyze and debate films.
