I actually really like the first episode, it seems to be promising. From what I can tell, it seems like its going to be more psychological than even the OG S;G. I really liked the part when Okabe was having PTSD, it made it genuinely unnerving, I think it was a very good touch. The story also starts out really quickly in comparison to the original. Lets hope they can keep it up, the new director seems promising.

As someone who started watching the original Steins;Gate just a few weeks ago, I enjoyed this episode a lot and even feel like I'm gonna like 0 more than the original series. I liked the original a lot but it's a bit overhyped in my opinion. I can't wait for it to get confusing as hell

Dat atmosphere
Dat PTSD
Dat VN OST
Dat best girl Maho

Where are the japanese shaman girls, Lintahlo?/10

If they stay this fateful to the novel all along it's going to be even better than the original one (not a fan of the first 10 episodes and all the cringey chuunibyou interactions).

My gosh! I love the first episode. That Maho girl introuduced an ai called Amadeus. I wonder if it is Kurisu. I am happy to see all characters back!

It;s funny that you say the original is overhyped, when 0 has 9.19 and rising. :D

Not a bad start.

I'm still worried about how they are going to adapt the non-linear content from other routes though. With S;G was much easier since the routes were pretty much all chronologically connected. This isn't the case at all with 0, and there's quite a bit of important information to be taken from each.


Most people here haven't read the VN, if they have you would see a lot of people being at most cautiously optimistic.

S;G ended years ago, its rating is more valid. Lets see where this goes, I predict at least a sub 8 score at the end, although it depends if they keep the superior adaptation that way and fix some weaker parts it could stay a plausible low 9 in the best case scenario.
Anyway suffering and confusion are guaranteed. (:

Yeah, the fact that it gets such a high score after one episode is kinda... Overhyping stuff as well. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it and that they're excited though.

One of the best sci-fi animes is back. Ah the nostalgia, I really missed Mayuri. Okabe and the others are older, but he keeps remembering the past. He may thought this world line was save but that ending episode shows that something bad is coming.
Daru's wife tho lmao

Of course older is more valid, but this is just overblown. :D Love the series, so I guess I am glad, but it's a little unrealistic, really, it wasn't THAT good.

Aww a world without Kurisu but now in the form of Amadeus! I enjoyed the ending song. I remember hearing that on youtube and loved it, glad they played it here. Glad to see the characters from last season and it has a more serious vibe especially with Okabe. He's now being like a college student lol mixers, no wonder Feris and Luka were shocked. Mom of Suzuha is cute. Daru is a lucky dude. Now let's see where this show is going but since it's Steins Gate I would predict that it would be amazing nevertheless.

That PTSD came out of no where.... it was so well done. Read only the first route of steins gate zero (wanted to wait for the anime before I read the rest), so the conference felt a bit rushed from what I remember but obviously episode 2 will elaborate on it . However the animation looks amazing and watching everyone interact with each other is so heart warming. Brilliant start to hopefully an amazing 23 weeks. :)

yes!! Steins;Gate, one of the greatest anime ever made, is back! well, sort of. this was my most anticipated anime for spring, and its off to a great start!
its kind of sad to see Okabe giving up his "mad scientist" persona, but you can understand how he feels after knowing all he's been through. all the characters besides him are pretty much the same, like revisiting old friends, which was nice.
The part with the short girl made me laugh so hard, I'm so glad this series is still balancing humor and drama well like the original Steins;Gate.
anyways, I'm just so glad that we have another Steins;Gate anime and I can't wait to keep talking about it every week!!

Everyone's favorite mad scientist just wanted to be a normie after suffering some serious PTSD, but science went and revived his dead girlfriend as an AI. Guy can't catch a break.

Also, I noted the assistant as a "legal loli" literally thirty seconds before the term appeared in the subtitles. I am Daru. Daru is me.

If only you knew the disrespect the people at Pierrot showed Ishida during season 2 of Tokyo ghoul you might feel a bitter taste in your mouth trying to defend them... It's a total surprise they still have it this season..

And you really have to try to mess up a manga like Tokyo ghoul re but..sigh
And worse..it's a studio with people who can but won't do it
ACTUALLY caring is important
The director of Fate/stay night Heaven's feel 1 was basically quacking in his shoes asking fans if they were cool with the adaptation while you hear people in another studio are throwing away the script the creator worked hard for.. You can't honestly say everyone cares

Anyways.. I appreciate your sentiments though...quite noble of you honestly
It's always just a mindless hate mob

At the very least we can be grateful Steins gate has a team of people who actually seem to care for it and all I can do is pray they can keep it up until the end
(plus there's the pressure of it basically being regarded as the best anime in Japan so..lol...rip the new director's blood pressure
You do not want to be that guy who ruined steins gate... XD)


It's not a surprise. Studio staff & producers that in return have connections to production committees are a thing. Business connections are a thing.
I'm also a little surprised that the "they disrespected Ishida and threw his script out of the window" bogus still is floating around and people actually vehemently believe it.
I mean there is Morita's AMA amongst other interviews that pretty much tell another tale.

I won't further discuss the caring part, you know my stance, I still find it disrespectful. That won't change this.

I have a board exam in a month so I was holding off anime as much as possible... But I can’t resist Steins;Gate 0. And I watched it. No regrets, it makes me more excited for the following episodes ahh, waiting for another week is a pain.

White Fox and Bones, we can all agree now that these 2 studios really care about their series ( based on the 1st episodes ) While Pierrot ruining Tokyo Ghoul:re again lol.

Bones / White Fox = Quality over Quantity
Pierrot = Quantity over Quality ( Tokyo Ghoul, Boruto and Black Clover all in one season )

While A-1 finally redeeming themselves ( Darling in the FranXX, Nanatsu no Taizai )

Either way great episode! The new director did a great job ~

EL PSY CONGROO


Dunno but A-1 is clearly not a bad studio doing an adaptation. Most of their source material is not good.

Maho rules !



Btw, winter clothes can be quite thick ^_^

And google aims to achieve a sentient AI between 2030 and 2040, so a computer with enough capacity to fully emulate a human brain is not really SF, or a very close SF. And emotions are only interpretations and results of its working process, so Amadeus is probably able to feel them somehow.

That was crazy good, my hype levels are already off the charts.

Seeing Okabe traumatized for Kurisu's death hurts to watch, he already went through so much all to see it end that way, the scene with him losing it thinking of the event made me shiver together with the creepy af music.

I'm so excited to see more, the weekly wait will hurt.

I can definitely tell the difference in the budget compared to the first season, but the characters all look and sound the same which is great. I didn’t think it would look this good though, too much close-ups, but other than that it feels like Steins;Gate and that’s good enough for me.

That PTSD scene was insane lol

Seriously 10/10 I hope they wont fuck the rest of series, this ep raised my expectation high. I know adapting s;g 0 will be hard, but nothing wrong with hoping for the better.

As someone who doesn't really care about the steins;gate franchise, this feel...dull, and somehow edgy (+ cringey). Also, I can't feel the drama at all. This feels like something a delusional person (chuuni, or something?) would enjoy. As a filthy casual (I don't really mind being called that btw), I can't really enjoy this, I'll prob watch until ep 3 and then decide whether I should continue watching this or not.

The simple fact that this series is already causing people to debate about AI is priceless, I love it. I just hope they include a certain scene from the VN where three characters sit around a table discussing the problems of creating an AI that seems as human as possible.

Of course you won't feel the drama if you don't care about the previous anime. This series builds on the emotions of the first one, so if you didn't like it, you won't like this one either.

Great episode I love it! Best first episode of the season for me. Kinda weird where it ends with no sound at all and then the ending credits. I'm also a sucker when it comes to time travel in anything.

Holy shiii, I'm honestly crying rn because I miss being in the Steins;Gate world and now that S;G 0 is finally here, we get 23 episodes of more S;G!!! I haven't played the VN but I heard this one gets really dark and I'm totally prepared, as long as I'm back in this world!

This was honestly one of my most anticipated animes of spring 2018 and it didn't disappoint! T.T I loved it SO much and I'm hoping it just gets better from here! I miss everyone and, with this ep, it's like they never left...well, you know, with the exception of Kurisu and the change in Okabe's demeanor of course but we all know why and understand so I'm not complaining about that (even though I do miss Okabe's mad scientist vibe LOL).

Hell yeah I'll be watching this weekly! :D

5/5! <3

This looks like a downgrade in comparison to the original series. They barely used lighting at all in this episode, the original series had a interesting use lighting which helped created the atmosphere that was mysterious and foreboding. Also what is with Mayuri's boobs, why are they gigantic in this anime? This anime seems like a cash grab, when both the art, animation and lighting are worse than the original.

After my disappointment with the movie I was kinda afraid to watch this but I'm happy to say that it was a great episode and I'm definitely interested.
Too bad our mad scientist became so boring after so many traumas, I hope he won't be so gloomy during the whole thing but I also know that chuuni Okarin doesn't really fit.

Anyway, can't wait for the next episode, I maratoned the first series so I can feel that watching this weekly will be torture.

Steins Gate; 0 pretty much demonstrates how hard it is to accept the death of a loved one... And also how it is like to be completely broken.

Just re-watched the movie and prequel to 0 before watching this, boy it was worth it. We got to see the crew again. But is someone missing. No surprise that Okabe is having nightmares about his past. Comedy was pretty funny, good to see Daru is entertaining as always. 2 New characters were shown. Daru's future wife. And a mysterious girl called Maho.

That ending gave me goosebumps and made my jaw drop, because of the seminar. I'm guessing Amadeus is going to be a big part of the series, in a good or bad way. ALSO THE SONG AT THE END WAS SO GOOD. For those that don't know, its the opening for the visual novel. I haven't read it myself so everything is a mystery.

Can't wait to see more!
