Just according to keikaku

So that thing about daru being John Titor's father was real? What the fuck.

I was expecting a mayuri personality twist. argh.

It's very far from terrible and being a 1/10 (i saw you give it a 1/10). You can't be serious. The direction, the compositions, the art are excellent without a doubt, and these are enough to not be a 1/10. And it is a unique time travel story without paradoxes and plotholes. I can understand that you didn't like the characters, but that shouldn't be a cause for a 1/10.

Oh I'm serious.

It shouldn't be a cause for a 1/10? What do you mean it shouldn't? It could be. Objective beauty does not exist. My disapproval, however, is also with the plot, for instance.

Rating a show is mostly subjective, but there are objective elements which we consider during rating. And these elements are: direction, composition, art. Plotwise the the logical issues, and the character development. And in these objective terms, Steins;Gate is excellent, plus it has no logical issues, no plotholes. It also develops its characters, every character has a story, has a motivation to act, there are no out-of-character decisions and etc... These are objective terms, not subjective ones.

Subjective terms are how did you like the characters' personalities and how did you find interesting the story of the anime. If you didn't like them, or didn't find interesting the story, it means that the anime is not for you, because it is not your taste. Not that the anime is bad, or terrible.

If you had objective problems with the story, then share it please.

One needs not consider those objective elements.

Wrong. Linguistically, "this anime is bad" means the same thing as "This anime is bad to me"

Dude, you need to learn to give respect to things that you didn't like. If this anime was not for you, you can simply say you are disappointed or you didn't like it, or even it is overrated in your humble opinion. But, trashing a masterpiece like this saying it is terrible when you are probably in an absolute minority is not the correct way to put your subjective opinion.
Even I was about to drop steins gate after 2 episodes when I first watched it but my friends insisted me to continue and it ended up becoming one of the irreplaceable favorites for me and I am sure I am not alone in this, there must be many who had similar experience like me.

Argumentum ad populum.

Being a minority does not mean that one should not "trash" anime which one dislikes.

That's what I am telling you, you can express your opinion in a much better way without trashing. You can dislike it without trashing because it is not trash, even I can say your opinion is trash but that's not the way things should be discussed dismissing other's opinions or saying something is trash because I don't like it.

I disagree. It makes the most sense linguistically for "This anime is trash" to imply "This anime is trash to me", and that is what it linguistically implies amongst sensible people, because of course beauty is subjective.

Steins;Gate is definitely the best anime for me, Steins;Gate 0 is another issue though, I hated that pointless shitty anime and I find it hard to believe that people liked that one and find it even harder to believe that there's some people out there that liked it even more than Steins;Gate. Beauty is subjective alright so I won't blame you for hating on this anime, Steins;Gate was simply not for you.

Maybe time traveling stories aren't your thing or the anime failed to pull the right strings on you, it did for me and many others though.

So I won't shoot your down before I even hear you out, but why would you even give this show a 1 for?


My opinion on this show:

I thought this show was amazing, I loved how in the first few episodes, we felt just as crazy as Okarin and not understanding what's going on with the whole time travel dynamic.

Its a shame a feeling like this can only happen once because once you seen it or read about it, etc, the feeling is over and I really hope that whoever watches this anime reads no reviews, no episode description, everything needs to be experienced just the way Oakrin experienced it and learned just how he learns it.

There was some very tiny plot holes, but that's time travel in a nut shell and I think its impossible to make a show based on time travel without having to cut corners, I mean our regular life is full of plot holes, so its fine. :p

The show is consistent (kind of), everyone remembers the other world as if it was some sort of dream or just small fragments of memory. Granted I would wonder how everyone else in the world would react to this. ( FB/Mister Braun? Moeka? Christiana Dad and the Russians? Small little plot holes here that were sadly avoided and not talked about ). Or maybe they do remember it but since their is no Sern in that world they don't care? I don't know, would of liked more info on it.

The romance is not forced ( thank god Oakrin and Mayuri were not a thing, same with Oakrin + every other girl/guy ), and Christiana and Oakrin were the main focus of everything, I am really happy they did that because those were the two people hanging out the most, doing everything with each other, it just felt so good.

And I would really want to see another part of the show where Christiana kissed Oakrin and gets her memories of the old kiss back because it was stored in the hippocampus as she said, I really would of loved just to see what would of happened after the kiss ( and to be honest I just wanted to see them kiss again and was mad when they just cut to black ).

Otherwise, It gets a 9/10 from me. A good decent ending granted the plot holes did annoy me and idk, episode 22-24 I believe were kind of weird, if it would of ended on 21 I would probably would of gave it a 10.

Maybe I just didn't like the whole "World War 3" and Future Oakrin talking to present ( or past in his case lul ) Oakrin turned me off a bit.

Or I also probably wanted an ending where Christiana also died, I am just a sick person lul

It made me infuriated that everyone else loves it. daru actually being the father was so ridiculous, for instance. The show is not profound, either, but people seem to think that it is.

But again, your not explaining what makes you hate it?

"It made me infuriated that everyone else loves it"

So do you just hate it because everyone loves it? Is that it?

"daru actually being the father was so ridiculous,"

How was that crazy? Daru is really smart, sure he is a pervert nerd, but he has helped with the completion of the time machine and hacking into the SERN database, so I am sure he met someone who also loves doing what he does.

"The show is not profound, either, but people seem to think that it is."

Its a time travel anime with barely any plot holes, to even talk about time travel without any issues/plot holes is really well done.

I am not going to say this Anime is "the best in the world" no anime is, but you should give it credit where credit is due.

I do, I do give credit where credit is due. it don't mean that it's not a 1/10 to me.

I'll say, some strange stuff happened at the end. something about them kissing yeah. tremendously frustrating.

in steins;gate, 'tis just hollow. that's an example. hope you see where I'm coming from

Looks like you misinterpreted some things... People only have faint memories from previous worldlines, and they also need a push to remember those faint memories. But these faint memories are not like that they are fully remember on what happened on previous worldlines. No one has exact memories, so there is nothing to react.

What plotholes are you talking about?

If you want to see an ending where Kurisu is dead, then Episode 23ß (Missing Link OVA) and Steins;Gate 0 are waiting for you.

You cant possibly put 1/10 even if you didn t like the show : it has incredible music and the realization was amazing, with many different shots i ve never seen in other anime or even movies. They put a lot of effort in the voice acting too.

You should at least put 4/10 for it s technical quality, don t you think ?

It took me a while to understand how the plan was supposed to work and affect the future; I think it was ok. And Kurisu and Okabe are together again so that's nice.

Props to Okabe's VA, amazing performance. However, I'm kinda disappointed with the main plot: I just didn't care too much about Mayuri. I think this is the kind of series that I'll enjoy more on a rewatch but for now it's a 6/10.

There's only one thing I'm not sure about:
The Okabe who saw the not-dead Kurisu in ep24, what happened to him? Did he redo the entire events of the show? Because the stabbed Okabe says "good luck on your hardest 3 weeks". Is he stuck in a loop? But at the same time, since stabbed Okabe succeeded and went back to the timeline he came from(?), Okabe who saw the not-dead Kurisu did not actually redo those same 3 weeks, right? He stopped "existing", right?
Or are Okabe who saw the not-dead Kurisu and Okabe who got stabbed now living two distinct lives in two distinct timelines?
Up until this episode I thought that timelines could not co-exist, since everything simply got rewritten when they changed the past.

Sorry for the late answer. You are right, the Okabe who saw the not dead Kurisu just stops existing, since only one worldline is active at a given time. He stops existing when Suzuha and Future Okabe return to the future.

It was a good ending. Too bad anime only covers Christina ending. The other girls had good endings in Elite game.

Okabe was an idiot for taking dried up paint.

Some friends of mine said that the start is boring and slow. But when you know you're watching a masterpiece then it's every second is masterpiece. If i consider first half it'll be definitely can rank as my favourite Slice of life. But it's more then that and start to finish it was a masterpiece. Kurisue and Okabe forever ♥️

extraordinary! This is a masterpiece, at first I didn't want to watch this anime, because the anime people said it was difficult to understand, and I was curious to watch it, finally I watched it and it wasn't as difficult as people say, and the story line was really interesting, this course deserves to be called a masterpiece, and I like seeing kurisu when Tsundere.

It's no wonder why Steins;Gate anime series' rating is one of the highest on MAL! The first few episodes didn't interest me much but it did intrigue me as more episodes go by. I'm relieved I didn't give up on this because it ended up as an anime I could never forget. Truly recommendable!

It was similar with me too. The first two episodes were kinda boring, but then it was getting more and more interesting and at the end it became one of my favourite animes.

I'm really interested to know if they'll experiment again with d-mails and time leaps in the new timeline. Obviously the moral of the story was not to mess with past events as we saw Okarin learn the hard way. But they ended with Okabe giving his friends lab badges which means they'll continue experimenting in the lab. Could it be limited to wacky gadgets and inventions or would they possibly approach time travel with a different light? Or perhaps the lab itself became a symbol of friendship and commraderie for the lab members where they can find help and care in each other.

much better anime than i expected

yes, the beginning episodes were slow, but they served its purpose in bringing it all around in the end.

I would have loved if they had use the time machine to go to the 1970's to retrieve the old computer on that timeline. That would have been awesome.

but, I didnt like how when the thriller of the anime finally started, it was mostly used on trying to save Mayuri. But oh well.

But again, much entertaining than I expected. Ill probably never watch it again due to the slowness of the first half (even with its moments), but as of today's date, its the best time travel-time changing, alternate world, etc anime I have ever seen.

For me all anime is anime original. I dont read manga, light novels, visual novels, etc.

Always make sure to watch anime in marathon mode and not one episode per week mode, because its the only way for you to tell if an anime is enjoyable or not. Countless times Ive seen anime weekly and enjoyed them but when I watch them marathon, I didnt like them anymore. And many times Ive seen anime that I saw weekly and hated it, but when I watched it marathon, I enjoyed it. Marathon is the way to go, specially if you plan to add an anime to your favorite list.

8 out of 10. I did see a lot of spoilers prior to watching this anime

But nothing was so spectacular that it stood out to me, where I thought "WOW". A lot of times the antagonists lost all mental fortitude and just let things roll. Stern was/is a really weak antagonist.

Maybe because on watching in 2020 where many things probably copied it and multiple parodies have come out. But the presentation wasn't anything spectacular.

I didn't really resonate with a lot of the characters, Mayushi's personality bugged me, Kurisu I did like, Okabe was perfectly fine. I think this series has more to do with mystery than the actual plot, because the plot was average with a theme that said very little.

I forgot to mention, reading steiner is your average hero ability of a shounen. This is going to sound bad, but Sakurada reset had a better more interesting protagonist, this had a tighter more interesting plot.

For overall enjoyment which is what I always rate on, it's an 8/10 by no means bad, but I wasn't ever excited. Art was actually worse than what I expect from white fox. I think if I was younger I would've liked this more.

I'm glad I watched this anime, its one hell of a ride. The mystery of someone being stabbed at the first episode up to the final. It all connects, the phone, the microwave , SERN , Christina's dad, Suzuha being Titor, all of it. This show was Amazing 10/10.

I finished the original series last sunday, while just after watched episode 22 I watched the 23 Beta OVA and then binged 0, after finished it, I watched both episode 23 and 24 from Steins;Gate, it's truly the best ending possible and I almost cried.

Why I never watched this before, I'll never know. All that matters is that he saved Kurisu and that they found each other in the end. Perfect ending for an amazing anime.

Wow, can't believe i was 9 years late to this (though it was good to not have to wait 7 years for zero). I would definitively put this in my top 5 animes ever, everything is very well structured and well planned. The only flaws it has are some minor plot holes and a confusing start (which is why most people hate the first half) with that in mind everything else is just perfect, i give it a 95.

What are those plotholes? I'm curious. The only plothole I know about and even VN readers can't explain it properly is Suzuha's disappearance at the end.

Quite a happy ending! Kurisu is alive, Mayushi is alive, and there won't be any World War III or dystopian totalitarian state in the future. :D

I really liked this anime. It was not perfect and had many flaws. I found first episodes to be quite boring and I was not a fan of several characters, which were Feyris with her "nyan" treated like a way to finish a sentence (lol); or Okarin in the beginning with a lot of moments full of cringe. However the further episodes added a lot of depth to many characters, including Feyris, and it was to a point of make me actually like Feyris and her role in the story.

Comedy parts were also better later than they were in the first episodes. They started to be actually funny and not forced.

As for pros of this anime, there are many of them and their amount makes flaws look pale. First of all, brilliant voice acting. Then catchy music, very good art with good and consistent animation.

Steins;Gate introduced the viewers to many different characters, each with his or her own backstory, personality and profession. They were likeable, even if they might've been sometimes annoying (like, for me, Feyris that I mentioned before; or Okarin), and they were pretty realistically depicted. I can imagine that similar people could've lived somewhere.
It was cool to see their characters develop, even if it was only for a bit in some cases.

The thing I enjoyed the most I think were two things: references to popculture, with John Titor aka Time Traveler's case and everything around it, like IBM 5100 (in the anime: IBN 5100) needed for certain and complex operation years after it was made; and of course scientific details or actual inventions or mostly stuff that is either in the sphere of theories (like time machine and how time travelling could've worked like) or actually exists (like many phenomenons from different branches of science, mostly from physics).

I'm glad I finally started watching this anime and completed it. I'm satisfied and now I know why many people love this show so much. It totally deserves its high score, since it is a solid piece of great anime.

I absolutely loved this last episode, it was (again) a perfect 10/10! My total score for the series was rounded up to "9" from ~8.5 a few episodes back. I would probably have given it a "10" if the first 11 episodes were just as good as the rest, but they clearly are not.
Now I am not sure whether to continue watching the OVA, the movie, the alternative 23β episode and finally Steins;Gate 0. For the last one in particular I have not heard the best things. I will probably take a breather for a few days or a couple of weeks and then watch the rest.
