Steins;Gate 0 is one of my biggest disappointments in my life.
I'm huge fan of the S;G, It is my favorite show, i watched it about 4-5 times and played the VN.
Since the very beggining i was feeling that something is wrong. I didn't feel Steins;Gate vibe. I hoped it might get good later, but what i encountered is crap animation, cringe humour, shitload of useless characters.
One and the only one good episode which i loved is ep8 which was perfect.
BUT.
Everything other is just horrible.

Story is dull, literally nothing interesting, "thrilling secrets" which are obvious about 5 episodes before any character realises it. Shitload of things that was super unnecessary. Some wierd decisions and ultrapoor scenography (I'm looking at you, roof scenes.
I feel like i am watching some seasonal crap with 6.5 score.
This anime is jumping from one thread to another, it feels kinda pushedn and not fluid.
Cutting head with one's hands? Is it some crappy edgy shit like mirai nikki?
Pacing is wierd. I feel like everything is slow, but individual threads are rushed.

Animation is bad. It is much worse than original. Sometimes even the protagonist in the foreground look more like a potato than a human. The worst thing are fight scenes where Suzu jumps in the middle of an army and it turns out there are Stormtroopers, or guys who cant even shoot. It was horrible as hell.

Characters may be the worst part beside the story
Okabe became superflat, mayushi is completly changed, they even managed to fuck up the platonic love beetwen them established in original. there is shitload of characters that did absolutely nothing, they just were there. Maho is quite ok-written. I like Leskinen also

Music is also bad, i prefered S;G music much more. It is kinda bad

4/10, i think it is still too high because of the attachment to S;G

What is your opinion?

b-b-b-ut 0 is totally a needed "sequel" to the original s;g and not like the whole point of it is to just hammer in why ep 24 of the original needs to happen

it has deep plot that solves needed plotline even tho we didn't get it for 7 yrs now

in other news, series that continue to adapt a manga or LN and actually are needed sequel are considered milking

Only watched through ep 16 atm but yeah... disappointing is the word for it. Lack of Christina and, you know, time travel. Also seeing Okabe be depressed through the whole show isn't as fun as his mad scientist persona.

I drop that garbage after 11 episodes even though I love the original one. No Makise, too much slice of life. Too much useless and emo Kyouma.

Choice of stuff might be bigger reason and also the story relies on too many clinch twists unlike the original. Personally thought 13 episode could make it okay instead of 23 and that way it could been tighter and less sol moment.

Different director from the original show. They seem more inexperienced.

I also like how Kurisu is listed as a main character despite Amadeus barely making any appearances. Gotta change that.

All I see are just nitpicks. From where I'm standing(as someone who love the s;g 0 vn and the show) it still continues and further supplements what the original is all about. A character changing isn't necessarily bad too(I mean for Okabe his failure would be expectedly traumatic, ofc he'll act like how he acts now sigh). It's just a story of a depressed Okabe eventually getting out of said depression. And I don't even care about plot holes at this point and the animation is something I barely noticed since I'm totally engrossed with the tale of a depressed guy since I'm personally a sucker for those.

It depends on what you mean by it is different, sure it doesn't feel the same and it's not the same creator but I say watch it in it's own and it's good.

I will add that Action scenes on the roof were probably the worst directed scenes i have even seen in my life. It looked more like a parody of action scene, but it wasn't.

That's similar to the way I feel about S;G, I think that the lack of involvement in drama and tension from the first series made you realize the issues the series has since the beginning.

I put it on hold after 14 episodes but I ll probably finish it after it stops airing. At least so far noting interesting happened that only hinted at stuff from time to time.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

i like how elitists are meeting here and need kurisu so they won't drop it
i agree with the fact that the entire rooftop fighting scenes are hilariously bad
but its not a definitive reason to drop it, the story is going good but it feels like kagari's story was kinda useless. the animation will be improved in the blu-ray so no objection.
the characters are like this because of what happened. its enjoyable to see them like this but also it must be more enjoyable as the vn intended it to be,
the og characters are there because they really were in the og, in this story they has no roles simply
what i love about this is the music alongside with the professional voice actors.
and why people expecting time travel when okabe just blocked anything would result it, but we still got new things about time traveling, which they're interesting
and right some twists kinda predictable.
but 0 adds a lot of good new stuff for the story and also enjoyable.
Wish me good luck, El Psy Kongroo.

But yeah, I've been shitting on Steins;Gate 0 a lot in the past weeks so I probably shouldn't even say anything else here because I'll be just repeating myself but like everyone else said, I'm also disappointed with Steins;Gate 0.

What's going on here? Steins;Gate 0 VN is extremely hard to adapt! Anime is not as good as first season but not as bad as you guys are complaining here!
"Music is also bad, i prefered S;G music much more. It is kinda bad"
Really? I find it has best ost, even better than S;G 0 VN, S;G VN and S;G anime LOL! All soundtracks are super great: Messenger, Believe Me-zero, Fatima, Last Game, World-Line, Lyra, A Song Played by the Stars, Re-Awake,...and so so many great unreleased soundtracks in ep 8, 14, 16,...
Steins;Gate 0 Anime has best ost of all time!

I love the adaptation because: Despise the staff decision of mix the routes, they are adding new content and fixing the problems that the S;G 0 VN has. Some examples are episodes 3,8,15,16.
They also added content from the CD drama Beta and The Epigraph manga.
We got the recursive mother goose chapter, which has an important lesson to Okabe.
The new ost is amazing(new songs and new versions from the Ost of the VN.

Yeah those guys here are blindly complaining everything! As i said, Steins;Gate 0 VN is extremely hard to adapt! The only way to adapt is mixing the routes and Anime did it not great but good enough. I think only VN-players find anime good LOL. Others were "disillusioned" because of their overhype. So they are calling S;G 0 Anime is sh*t wtf?
Anime 7.7/10 for me! Bluray will make it 8/10 or even higher!

Let's be honest here, if Steins;Gate 0 was another anime the rating would probably be below 8 by now, the only reason this anime is still high is because it has the name "Steins;Gate" in it, it's not because this is good or anything, it's because is riding in the success of the OG Steins;Gate.

We are not blindly complaining here, I know the VN is hard to adapt but a better director would have done a much better job, I will give this director praise for episode 8 which I considered a masterpiece but the rest of the episodes weren't that interesting apart from some good episodes like episode 13 and 19 that I liked.

The pacing of this anime sucks, it never got anywhere, in the last 4 episodes is where it started to get somewhere, this was the nail in the coffin for me. Also, the concept of Amadeus or A.I wasn't even used in the whole anime. Amadeus was just a minor filler character that was there just to talk random crap with Maho and Okabe and that got boring pretty fast, there was no good story or plot behind that concept, it appears that it will be used in the last 3 episodes but after 20 episodes I don't even care anymore, they had enough time to provide some good Thriller, Drama and Sci-Fi in the previous episodes but instead we had Slice of Life with some cringy Drama in most of the episodes and you find this acceptable? most of the people that liked this anime are mostly VN players but for anime-only viewers this anime is not cutting it and the pacing sucks.

I don't understand why many fans hated this sequel when they liked the prequel very much.. But this show really needed to repair the weak ending of the prequel..
The prequel was not really good either in my opinion, the only great part was when Okabe kept trying leaping to the past to save Mayuri, the rest are not great.. I agree that sequel is not really great, but I used to the flaws of the series so I don't expected from it too much ...

While I don't mind emo Okabe and the lack of Kurisu and time travel, the cast isn't nearly as good as in the original. The animation quality and directing is very bad. The pacing is also messed up, with lots of unnecessary filler and dumb cliffhangers instead of actual drama. The soundtrack is lacking, the EDs pale in comparison to the original S;G. You can see the source material isn't the problem, even if all you have is the game reviews. The change of staff is definitely the main reason here, at least that's what I think.

It's not bad, it's just not as good as the original. But I like it, it gives me the same feelings as the VN gave me.
And there is one aspect where 0 is far better than the original: the music.

Honestly, by re-watching the original Steins;Gate I could find a lot more problems with the show than I did the first time. Maybe because it's been a while since the first season, people have simply grown and are able to notice more problems in the anime than before.
I'm not saying Steins;Gate 0 is perfect, but I don't think it's as bad as some people make it out to be simply because of that reason.

Same here.
As I said before, Steins;Gate 0 could be 8.5 if White Fox did a great job. The source material is not good (pretty bad to be honest, the only moment made me hyped was the scene when Okabe met Kurisu again, the same thing happened to anime viewers in episode 8). So don't blame the director or White Fox for all reasons.
Maybe something good will happen in the next few episodes but it can't help all the weak build-ups so far.

Lol no, this is the real Mayuri, she always liked Okabe. Even if she has some feelings, she knows that she will never be with Okabe because he loves Kurisu, and she is fine with that as long as Okabe is happy.
