I doubt we'll find out what's going on any time soon. :-D Love it! I've got to say tho that the first episodes of ChäoS;HEAd were extremely interesting and entertaining, I can't see this one topping them, judging by the first episode.

From the first episode, it pretty confusing. I was watching through it and wondering what the protagonist is doing. I was actually thinking he was crazy. But that last part was interesting.......

I'll continue to watch this, and if it doesn't meet up to my expectations, Steins;gate has lost a fan.

I was rather taken by this series; from the artwork, to the characters, to the va, to the confusion, to the light tone meshed with the serious undertone.

I'm not saying they're similar but this had the same effect on me that higashi no eden had on me =]

I almost thought that Kyouma will break the toy. He does not seem to be that bad :D
The part with “Your banana is soft and squishy” just made me laugh for real xD

And now for the serious part... can't remember if I watched anime with more confusing first episode than this one. I can't really comment on anything then the jokes, cause' they're the only part I really got o.O

That was incredibly confusing.I don't think I understood a single thing.Apart from the end which was kinda promising, the whole episode made no sense to me..

I didn't start watching this earlier as I thought this was a direct sequel to ChaosHead but now I found out that this series is stand alone and you don't have to watch ChaosHead at all(?)

Anyways, what a strange anime, haha.
Still, I don't know why, but I liked it and will continue to watch further episodes.

Oh God, this is much better and more intriguing than that stupid "C" anime. It's so much more interesting/intelligent and not the worst of generic shounen. The humour is actually funny, the animation isn't atrocious, and doesn't have all of the cliched trappings of [C] in general. Nice.

I wouldn't call this anywhere near a masterpiece or something. But at the very least it is intriguing and not terribly banal. One of the more average anime this season. Instead of embarrassing.

I couldn't agree more. Well said.
I hated C so much I had to write my first rant in these forums.

This anime is weird as hell, but in a good way. hehe
Charming, in a way.

Interesting, but confusing. And strange. And weird. I hope I'll start getting the story in the next few episodes.

Before starting SG, I was watching Soul Eater and Ao no Exorcist. And when I heard Okarin's and Mayuri's voices I was like, "Death the Kid + Shiemi?" LOL. <3

Well that was weird.

Already hate the chick. Cutesy voice, dumb and refers to herself in the third person? She needs to either become yandere or just die.

Hope the scientist dude becomes less annoying, also. So far I like Makise the most and all she's done is speak a bit and wind up dead.

i honestly dotn see why so many ppl voted "5 out of 5: Loved it! "

it was confusing and far from being great.

Atleast it starts giving you questions from the very beggining, unlike how most anime spend the first 4 episodes on character development

Yeah, I don't see how "confusing" is a valid excuse to give this episode anything less than a 5/5. Episode 1 did nothing less than leave me wanting more, as a proper first epsiode should.

A little confusing and a little slow, but I am rather intrigued. And the main character has a really great voice actor!
<looks up who it is>
Ah, no wonder. It's friggin' Light and Tamaki! This looks like a perfect role for him.
I'll give this show a couple more episodes, at least, and see how I feel about it.

Personally, I think the characters seem dry, but everyone has their flaws. Esp. Okarin since he's clearly out of his mind.
The humor is kinda dull. I only had the faintest of smirks at Itaru's perverse floppy banana joke. Clearly, the story seems to be this show's strongest point.
Other than that, I have some faith in this. I hope the story holds up and that the time mechanics get a good explanation as this series proceeds.

I suppose the style of humor isn't for everyone, but I think the show is worth watching even if you can't quite appreciate it all the time.

Okabe is not completely mad. You start realizing his Kyouma persona is merely his way of dealing with others.

I've been meaning to watch this properly for some time now. I got the SD UTW Mazui rip back when it fist aired and then watched it about 4am or omething. I kept falling asleep, the quality was kinda low, and at first I though it might be a sequel series because some people were talking about characters that wern't in the first episode.

Then I realised that this was a VN, so they had prior knowledge, this wasn't a second series or anything, and it involves time travel.

I usually like stuff with time travel, and it explains the 'wtf is going on' aspect so I'm giving it another shot!

Also, I keep seeing images of that Kurisu girl everywhere, so here we go! Lets see if I can watch this in time to catch up before the last episode!

Pretty good, but not an amazing episode. The characters kind of amused me with their interactions but I think it's really harsh to judge them based on episode. Hope this lives up to the ridiculously large hype.

Wow, it's...pretty damn confusing.

I just think that he's batshit insane right now. Though I'm loving his insanity and the laughs.

Haha, yes xD. I remember how his laughter annoyed me, but later i got used to it, because i came to really enjoy his character. Hell, even i act like him sometimes (it was a secret until now, ouch). And one more thing - he's not insane!

Don't know. I liked Kyoma at once. Just from the begining.
Maybe it's because he is really similar to me, except he is more into acting.
Here is the same thing that was with Sato Tatsuhiro.
It's easier to like character and put yourself into character's place when the character is similar to you.

Not too impressed by this first episode. They try too hard with humor and its just not funny so far. having said that, the cliffhanger at the end is really good and Im sure that what seems a convoluted plot will clear up soon.

I've heard wonderful things about this anime. Let's see if it lives up to the hype.

Now I know why people said this anime was worth to watch. The main cast are just amazing, especially Okarin and Mayushii; they are both lovable and interesting even it just the first episode.

A lot of things still doesn't make any sense like what does Stein Gate that Okarin mentioned means, what is this Organization he spoke of, why his message sent to the past and a lot of things but I'll see what will next =)

Great first episode~

God, I'm lovin how people, still new to the series, already say that it's amazing.... *squeee* Prepair yourself for the ultimate mindbending, this anime knows how to make every single episode worth so much! :3
EDIT: Is it weird, that I feel like S;G is my child and I've properly educated it, so now people are proud of it... lol

You will. In fact you can only truly appreciate the anime once you finish it. God, looking back.... It really is one hell of a show.

I have bought both manga Chaos;Head and Stains;Gate, but I didn't get a chance to read them. So I don't know what is going on both series but people keep saying they are somehow related, well, I am going to confirm that sooner or later.
Anyhow, back to the episode, I didn't like it like others, but I guess the series will keep getting better, I hope.

Who will explain to me what happend and why!!!

The first ep. and first meeting of Makise with Okabe. She didn't know him but she said "A few minutes ago, you tried to tell me sth, right" so she had to meet Okabe before but he didn't remember that, why??? She met him in diffrent time line, or???That's strange because Okabe is endowed with remembering memories from other's time lines so even when they are changing he should remember the meeting with Makise???

When Okabe run away from Makise and pulls his phone from the pocket the time lines changed so I persume that then Marise was killed, I'm right???and she is being resurrected because Okari sent a mail about her death to Daru???

If you give the show, you know, time it'll answer these questions and more. If, for whatever reason, you have questions after the series is over then ask them then. Please don't expect people to completely blow the plot for you in the first episode, because that's pretty much what you are doing.

Thanks to all the hype that I was able to finish this awesome anime recently.

First couple episodes were painful to watch though (which is why I dropped it in the first place), and I know I'm not the only one.

That being said.. wish me luck on Gintama...
