I would say it's been a while, but I watched the alternate 23rd episode half an hour ago xdd

I guess Okabe's normie days won't last for much longer.

I remember how much I liked the soundtrack to the VN now :)

Good episode, they changed a bit, hopefully they don't do that too much.

A pretty good start. Certainly got me a nostalgic a fair bit, but I'll reserve my hype for now as from what I've heard the story is very divisive in terms of opinions.

Should be an enjoyable ride regardless

Started lightly just as expected, but then the Kurisu trauma part was spectacularly horrifying, hope is restored a little. The conference in the VN was more interesting though but i guess it's boring to most people.

Anyway very promising.

"If Daru was there he'd be all over like "She's a legal loli! It's happening!"

Lmao that line was funny asf.

Mayuri looked way better with longer hair in season one IMO. But shes still adorable.

And to me it feels like a normal SG episode since I marathoned the entire SG franchise yesterday and the day before. Overall good start tho.

Oh man it's nice to see all these characters again. Things have already gotten interesting based on the end of the episode. This was a great first episode and I'm definitely excited to see what's in store down the road.

Also, I forgot how much I missed hearing Mayuri say Tuturu lol.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

I wonder how they're gonna handle the endings? Considering they branch out drastically compared to the original S;G VN. I'm gonna guess it's gonna go for the Promised Rinascimento end before going the Vega & Altair end? That'd make the most sense.

Also Hiyajo's CGs were adorable. Can't wait to see her moments animated :D

I'm going to have to go back because I was interrupted during the middle somewhere, but I caught most of it.

It felt a little off to start with, but that went away pretty quickly once they were back in the old lab. I started to get a feel for all the old characters and got a quick introduction to the new ones.

Haha, oh man, what a tricky situation Daru and Suzuha are in.

So I missed some of what was talked about after Okabe and Suzuha had their convo on the rooftop. I came back about the time he met the little short girl (forgot her name for the moment)

That engrish.

That presentation and ending, oh man. I am hyped. Good first episode, I'ma go back and make sure, but I think this was about as well as I could have hoped to be re-introduced to the franchise. 9/10.

Two words: "Holy Cow!"

I really like the way they changed the order of events to give more impact to the Amadeus reveal at the end of the episode, and I'm glad that we can hear some of Okabe's thoughts. I feared we'd miss what Okabe thought Daru would say about Maho.

Great use of the soundtrack too.

Great start though it had some changes from the VN but nothing too drastic. I hope it concentrates more on Maho in later eps though as she is best girl. Love her introduction though.

I wanna say this is like....3 or 4 months after Kurisu's death in the WWIII timeline.

Feel free to correct me, folks.

Steins Gate started in July and now it's December. It's about 6 months after the 23 B episode I believe.

Wow.

The story starts off pretty good, Okabe, everyone looking great again. But I am definitely getting a thriller feel by the end of the episode, such a nostalgic and whelming start.
I am completely digging the soundtrack as well.

5/5 They actually put the opening of the visual novel at the end of the episode, I love it.

I am so hyped.

Well, everyone's just wearing their winter clothes. Also, Mayuri was always pretty busty XD

And just to clarify, Kurisu died on July 28 and the convention in this episode took place on November 23. So that's a 4 months gap.

BOY AM I PUMPED FOR THIS. GREAT first episode; it really helped tie together the previous series into this one's World Line. We finally get to meet Suzuha's mom among a few other key characters, and you can already sense the Feels Train warming its engines. This is gonna be another bumpy ride, and Studio White Fox has given us front-row, splash-zone seats for it. Buckle up everyone; Okabe is back in business.

5/5

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 ~

Idk how I feel about this anime I mean it looks rather promising but for me it just doesn't feel as overwhelming/Thrilling as Steins Gate did.
Back when I watched Steins Gate for the first time I was instantly hooked and didn't sleep that night just so I could finish the show in one Go this one just doesn't make me feel the same way Steins Gate did :/ also all female characters suddenly having such large breasts is kinda irritating.

Thx for the clarification but it's not just Mayuri and even with her it was never to that extend and i must say I really don't like it

I'm still relatively new to Steins;Gate but that tuturu brought back some serious memories.

Fuck that PTSD scene was disturbing. I really hope Beta Okarin makes it out okay. Though I highly suspect eternal suffering for him.

As of today I am the happiest human on Earth. This first episode was so amazing I can't handle it. All of my waiting and abstaining from reading the VN has now so so paid off. Everything I just witnessed was all new to me and I can't wait to see what happens next.

My life now has meaning again. Thank you S;G.

ALSo why is it a thing that every time someone (who is supposed to be a native speaker) in an anime speaks englisch they have a terrible accent couldn't they get someone with a less noticeable acctent for that role.

You will be sure to love him soon, he is a top tier memer and the accent is part of his charm.

He speaks Japanese too, don't worry. He is Finnish, so not really a native English speaker either.

Fantastic start.

The opening sequence upto when Okabe meets up with Mayuri was amazing.
The soundtrack hits so damn hard for me and seeing all the characters again is just wonderful. I'm so happy they decided to this adaptation.

We get to meet Yuki officially, like finally and I love her already.

That PTSD scene though. :(

Super interested in the AI stuff that was presented at the end.

Masterful presentation overall, really looking forward to this.

Indeed. Leskinen is my 5th favourite character. I thought he might have spoken to Okabe before the presentation but there is still 22 eps to go to flesh him out.

I appreciate the gesture but there is so much problematic stuff with what you said.

First off, everyone cares about their project otherwise they wouldn't even remain in an industry riddled with problems to begin with. Don't try to make the lack of passion a reason when scheduling & industry-wide practices are to blame for.

Secondly you're trying to make a point about quality & quantity while comparing a relatively new studio trying to find a foot in the industry with recent expansions in their facilities with a giant that has several decades of history. The difference is Pierrot can afford to have multiple projects in the production stage whereas WhiteFox can't but wish they did. And even if we follow your logic Bones would not even match your criterium as they have a ton of simultaneous production going on thanks to their 4 department structure.

Either way it's pretty much pointless to talk merely in studios anyway when so much decision making is done outside of the studio's reach or discretion. With as many freelancing creative core staff as there is, it's not surprise really.

That out of the way, Kawamura indeed did a splendid job. He continued the delicate depiction of facial expression to display a wide range of emotions.
The result is an amazing episode.
