oh wow ur spoiler really changes the way i watch this anime. I havent read sg0 vn, and tbh i am pretty dissapointed so far with this anime, as i felt b4 episode 18 the plot is too slow and all the plot twist could be easily predicted...

i felt that the producer probablyerase some plots from vn for meaningless melodramatic moments.

after the anime ends pls tell me all the plot twists erased in this anime... thx

You do know there are still 5 episodes to go?
We will still see the Fubuki stuff resolved, even if its underdeveloped, the anime highlighted much of the hospitalstuff even in anime original scenes. Its not over till its over and 2nd opening also shows Fubuki in her hospitaldress for giggles? Leskinen isnt gone either yet, and im not sure what to think of Reyes too as she's part of the 2nd opening but they didnt show her yet besides a maybe dead/hurt Reyes. They do have something in mind including PR stuff(even though i did expect them to end it more in the GS way to make that possible). Rest of V&A + Arclight + MWC dont need 5 more episodes. Its tough enough to fill an entire episode of MWC, but doable with Arclight at least.

I dont see how they ruined Sgt. Cleaner, thats the weirdest thing ive read from vn readers so far. Its a great adaptation of her even to the point of being referenced again. She's awesome and glad they didnt cut her even though most expected her to get cut, even if anime onlies are complaining about it as "nothing happens". There are other parts of TA which i kinda still have hopes for.

As for GS Maho: Well its only one worldline in the anime, so it was expected they would remove that part. Original S;G wasnt different when it comes to such stuff, they gladly cutted Nae away and GS Maho is kinda compareable in a sense. I like her development in GS but i dont think it would work in the anime thanks to Arclight, especially with her development before, but yeah also had hopes they would go more straight into GS. But i guess they got sick of anime onlies complaining about Houin Kyoma so they decided to adapt this different. Lets see how it works out.

So..... does Mayuri love Okarin or Houounin Kyouma more? She needs to maintain a choice for at least one episode.

I agree about Sgt Cleaner being great, you can literally read posts from on the first episodes were i hoped her being shown. So its really weird to complain about her screentime. You say they could've used a minute or two, but they used 2-3minutes for the whole thing + later references with Daru. Dont see a difference at all there to the VN, so really not sure what you expected there. They also highlighted how messy Maho is, which is nice.

And yes Reyes is probably the worst in the anime version, though as mentioned they better make up for including her in the 2nd opening.

V&A has only 1 more episode of content and MWC has barely a scene. So thats 2 known episodes for sure, rest is mixed content, PR and Arclight. Really not sure what they are planing there aside from the obvious scenes. But im sure they will reference Fubuki again as they bothered in the first place to map her memories to episode 8. Not saying it wont be inferior, but i dont think we are past that point to write her subplot completely off, otherwise whats the point of anime original scenes reminding us of this?

As for the last thing:
17: "I love Okarin." "But I love Hououin Kyouma even more"
Translation:" I love the (current) Okarin, but I love Hououin Kyouma even more so i want him back"
-> in context to Daru and Maho
18: "I love Hououin Kyouma" "But you know what. I love Okabe Rintaro even more"
Translation: "I love Hououin Kyouma, but i love my Okabe Rintaro (as a whole person) being true to himself even more."
-> in context to Okabe himself, confessing her feelings to him

So Okabe Rintaro(Hououin Kyouma + Okarin) > Hououin Kyouma > Okarin

Its from Arclight and not straight up from the VN. Its correct that way and not a writing mistake:
"In her thoughts, Mayuri knows who her only "Hikoboshi-sama" is. The identities Okarin and Hououin Kyouma together make up her beloved "Okabe Rintarou", who helped her after she lost her grandmother."

So basically she loves the true Okabe Rintaro - who is a mix of Okarin and his Persona he created to help her out. Its the consequent development of 16 > 17 > 18, to make this stronger and who Okabe really is. Ofc she ends up confessing her love not to a persona, but the true person behind it, which isnt the current Okarin either, as he isnt true to himself but suffering from making the choice to stay in this worldine (referencing 16, which Okabe knows himself).

Steins;Gate is not an action series. They shouldnt even try. It does not work at all. I mean, how did she decapitate these two guys? Its not well directed and choreographed at all. And stupid. And how many times does Kagari have to die? That was much too long and too often. I didnt like her in the first place, so i would have been fine with one quick scene.
Such an action scene does not work if you know because of the Time Line that most of them wont die. Thats why the end of last weeks ep was cheap.

I dont wanna hate this series. Ep 16 was so f**king great. But its just such a mixed bag. There are so many boring clichee episodes and this weeks was stupid. It cant get an higher score than an 8 right now. If it manages too keep that. Compare that to the masterpiece of the first season...

The entire season made me confused and weirded out rather than intrigued and glued to the screen like Season 1.
Idk, it just doesn't click as well, it feels convoluted and misdirected. And it lacks all groundedness the first season had, Suzu taking on 20 dudes with M16s without receiving ONE fatal hit? Yeh sure.

The professor speech was also cheesy as hell and I always knew he was a scheming fuck, given his nasty eyes and perplexing stare.

Felt zero emotion throughout except "WTF is going on right now?". Definitely not a worthy successor to Season 1 in my book. Feel free to rip me apart tho. :D

Original directors were replaced by a literally who talentless director for whatever reason. Basically just read the VN if you want the proper version.

Just realized that this episode had 8 animation directors. The more, the worse. More conflicts in production and signs that this episode was behind schedule and needed extra support. Normally, S;G 0 episodes have 1-2 animation directors, but this... jeez, must've been a disaster of a production.

This is just so bad…. The plot is more needlessly convoluted than intriguing , the pacing all over the place and the new characters are so underdeveloped and uninteresting that I can’t feel anything for them.
The professor is just a cliché nobody comic book villain and Kagari is so uninteresting and underdeveloped that you simply don’t care about her or her death. Her “fight” with the soldiers was an insult to the eyes and her death or rather her multiple deaths were handled so badly that it came across as more comical than sad.
At least the original steins gate remains good.

When I saw the professor, I knew something was wrong. That punch from Suzaha at the end was really satisfying though. Can anyone explain why people are saying that the VN's are now better?

Damn, this was some heavy episode! I would’ve seriously wept my eyes out if I were to watch this in my room alone and not in school.

Kagari’s lone assault was admirable and super badass. Coupled with that, the fluidy animation made it all the more spectacular to watch. But it sure was depressing to see her pass away like that. Mayuri and Suzuha finally got to get on the time machine but then the demise struck. I’m curious to see how Okarin will respond to this now.

Mayuri’s message with that sad soundtrack was just brilliantly thought out, but depressing all the more. 4/5 to this Episode, as it felt rushed in a way. Looking forward to the next epsiode.

Can someone explain to me the Professor's reasoning for going back in time? He mentioned something about going to the past and faking the destruction but what does that mean? Also why did Mayushii reverse what she said last episode on loving Kyouma more than Rintaro?



not returning to past, but the future him, using the present him to steal the time machine before being destroyed (like what happened in the end of the ep.){if you remember, it's like what Rinrato did in the Steins;Gate to achieve Steins Gate, to fake Kurisu's death, and to make his past self believe that Kurisu is dead} and using it to travel to the past and to make a fuqqin paradox

They are breaking my little kokoro in pieces jajajajaj Now seriously, this episode has been for me shoking. The end is the most beautiful demostration of sincere love to someone, Mayuri risking herself to save Okabe's happiness; but also sad... All the sacrifice that Okabe did to save her, losing Kurisu, is a feeling I can't imagine... But they did the same thing for the other, put their happiness above themselfs.

The fight scenes really make me stop watching this series since they are part of it. Also the story is much simpler than the OG. The characters lost their charisma and this turned to be a harem for the firts episodes.
The twists were obvious and I couldn't care less about the characters since we already know how they end...
So for me the series is really being a ZERO out of ten. Ha. You get it... ZERO like S;G 0

Better ignore that stuff. The VN spans across multiple worldlines and the anime is its own new worldline.
Also there are major differences between each including the characters.

Its a bad idea to dive deeper into this as it will be just confusing and might spoiler major VN plotpoints. Also some things might still get adapted, at least that one wont. So just be careful till the anime ends, or better read the VN to make your own picture.

Just to give you an short answer though:

Such a dumb episode, it disgraced any little dignity the series had left. I don't feel bad for any of these characters because their actions have been nonsensical through the entire run.

The worst one is definitely Okabe. He has the experience of dozens of world lines and yet he refuses to put any of that knowledge to good use. All he's done for 18 episodes is quiver as he cries for Mayushii, like a little biatch. Hashida ain't much better either. Utterly retarded both of them.

I hate to be the guy who says "it's not realistic" considering it is a Sci-Fi show, but the sci-fi aspect is the time travel alone. There's absolutely no reason for these characters to behave like this considering what they've been through and what they know. OK I'm done ranting.

@PerlaNemesis

They dont need to understand the chapter names/acronyms to understand that those are distinct characters. Its easier to tell characters apart by their route/chapter names instead of using something like this:
1.129954β/1.129848β Kagari (=VN VA Kagari)
1.064750β/1.053649β/1.055821β Kagari (=VN PR Kagari)
1.097302β (=Anime Kagari)
That only focuses on Kagari.

And then we also have 1.130205β from Arclight which also includes:
1.129848β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130212β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130211β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130209β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130208β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130206β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
1.130205β The Arc of Light of Infinity Drama Cd
... etc.

You should start to view it as a complement instead of an adaption. Im not discounting how great the VN is, by defending the anime route lol.

Its just more interesting for me and i love seeing Arclight which is far better than what we got in the VN. I prefer the anime version of V&A, aside from smaller issues like the straight up copied Amadeus messages without the context why it adresses Okabe, they overrushed that bit without appropriate changes for example, just by hinting at it in 16 for whatever reason. Im hyped for MWC which wont be just a short scene alone thanks to Arclight.

I also suggested myself to go read the VN instead of reading our explanations as you are also including further spoilers for the VN, while i tried to keep it more vague by just saying "different purpose/different character traits" in the context of the anime rather than explaining how and why different it is. I also have the feeling the anime will touch on something you spoiled.

Well, I don't read the VN so Idk how they handled this part, but the screenwriting of today's episode was... quite disappointing. I get the point they're trying to tell, but damn how I wish they had tweaked the package a little bit more...

Cause, such a waste of good talents! Those VAs, damn! Some of the best out there. Top notch. Swell.

One-two animation "mehs" here and there is fine for me, if one could even it out by good writing (?)

Truth be told, I think Daru is getting undeserved criticism here and I don’t think that Daru is wrong or that there is anything wrong with his morals.

Daru wanting to stop Suzuha was not a problem. The problem is that they should have tied or cuffed Leskinen so as not to give him the chance for any comeback. If nothing like this was possible Suzuha, for example, could have broken Leskinen’s arm to make sure his not going to cause any problems.

There was a wide range of possibilities that the characters may have done to stop Leskinen other than killing him, but did not.

They don't need to understand the chapter names I agree but adding them there just makes it more confusing for people. You literally could just say this was the Kagari of this other world line, or the Mayuri of this world line, etc... I know you mean well but I'm just giving my two cents lol. I do view it as a complement to the vn of course, as I do with most vns understanding that it's hard to actually make an adaptation of long ones but can't help but get disappointed because if anyone could pull it of you'd think it would've been whitefox. :\

and he asked to be spoiled so I don't see the problem in telling them in with a spoiler button. xD The adaptations do make me want to replay the games but I've been too busy lately which is kinda sad. ;-;

That message is actually from episode 17, she wrote that to Okabe on her way to see Suzuha before going to the past in the time machine but since the carriers were out there was no signal in the phone and because of that the message arrived late. So she wrote that in episode 17 and at the end of episode 18 the phone signal started working again and the message was finally received.

Still, it was a goddamn shitty episode.

I didn't understand the message that Mayuri sent to Okabe at the end of the episode knowing that she died with Suzuha. How could that happened if she was supposed to be dead?


That message is actually from episode 17, she wrote that to Okabe on her way to see Suzuha before going to the past in the time machine but since the carriers was out there was no signal in the phone and because of that the message arrived late. So she wrote that in episode 17 and at the end of episode 18 the phone signal started working again and the message was finally received.

Still, it was a goddamn shitty episode.

I thought about that possibility but I wasn't sure 100%. But thank you for your explanation.

Honestly, this is just too boring. I don't know how I've been watching this painfully terrible protagonist Rintaro has transformed to. It's been 18 episodes and he's still so irritating to watch.

This sequel should have never happened, it's made things all the more confusing. The animation this episode felt like watching a slideshow in PP

They don't need to understand the chapter names I agree but adding them there just makes it more confusing for people. You literally could just say this was the Kagari of this other world line, or the Mayuri of this world line, etc... I know you mean well but I'm just giving my two cents lol. I do view it as a complement to the vn of course, as I do with most vns understanding that it's hard to actually make an adaptation of long ones but can't help but get disappointed because if anyone could pull it of you'd think it would've been whitefox. :

and he asked to be spoiled so I don't see the problem in telling them in with a spoiler button. xD The adaptations do make me want to replay the games but I've been too busy lately which is kinda sad. ;-;

Guess a disclaimer would help to not make them confused, so yeah will add it when talking about differences vaguely.

Dunno, i feel like too many are thinking its as close as original S;G, which was a rather linear story anyway via its hub and omitted smaller endings, so they dont think that small changes in the worldlines could make such a difference in the overall story of 0 and therefore not realize what kind of spoiler they ask for. Again im sure the next 5 episodes will differ more, so i wouldnt be sure what counts as a VN spoiler at this point. I dont understand certain changes yet either:


You could try to replay smaller bits alongside the anime. But yeah i know that feeling. I thought of replaying the original S;G, but meh i hate the old choices system and its too time-consuming. Also more fun to reread 0 alongside the anime in smaller doses to see how they do adapt things in this new worldline.

Doesnt help that elite is on the way too. Thought of rewatching the original S;G anime alongside 0, but i just dont like the original S;G anime as much. It was great the first time, especially before reading the VN, but all the interesting bits that arent in the memory are in the VN. So i just find the original anime boring aside from comparing parts that will be referenced in 0 anime. Oh well waiting for elite xD

Since Kagari came from the future , is she gone for good?
Leskinen was super predictable , but I wonder if that was the woman professor that got killed by Kagari last episode . I feel like more roles will surface soon

Was anyone actually surprised Leskinen was a bad guy?
