9/10

It is honestly a fantastic anime and it gets stronger as it goes, but it does somewhat peter out in the last to episodes, just a little bit. Not enough to drastically affect my score, but enough to keep it from getting a perfect one.

This is definitely an anime I would recommend to people who are not normally into mecha anime and to people who are more into the mechanical side of science. Almost everything in this anime held merit, and I think a lot of people are missing that.

I'm certainly looking forward to ChäoS;Child and Steins;Gate 0 to continue the Science Adventure series. So far I really haven't been let down in any large way by the series. I wish I could get the visual novels, but that will have to wait until I have more money.

Hmm, one significant connection I just thought of. Kimijima said his plans were originally set for 2015, but since he got killed that pushed his plans back to 2019. It's never actually explained how Misa finds him out. John Titor originally states that World War III starts in 2015, so I think the alignment of these dates is intentional. Obviously World War III didn't happen on this world line, but an event like it very nearly happened, and it's obvious the other players involved in C;H and S;G are very much active and acting with a serious agenda of world domination. More than likely time travel does or already has occurred on this world line. I know Steins;Gate 0 has nothing to do this anime directly; however, the continuity of all these visual novels is coming together and given that events keep happening bringing the world closer to a dystopia, I think eventually our friend Okabe is going to be forced to intervene again. Hence, it's quite possible a Steins;Gate 2 VN is in development right now. Of course, I'm betting they'll make a sequel to Robotics;Notes first or a different semicolon game altogether, but all paths are pointing to yet another grim future. I'm thinking the Steins;Gate world line is a failure, given that the Committee of 300 still has far too much power in it.

I got to say it, that mecha fight was amazing. Well done 2D animation, not as those 3DCGI mechas we have today...

It was good, but the episode felt rushed somehow.
I give this a 8/10. Great animation, good story, nice music, and I ended up enjoying these 22 episodes. Yes, it has some plot holes, some things felt rushed but, as a whole it was a nice anime.

Regarding the ending, it was really sweet seeing that Kai gave his dream another chance and became an astronaut and Aki finally constructed a legit and awesome version of GUNVARREL.


PD: Never said it but GUNVARREL design is pretty badass.

I don't understand why the whole Frau arc was dropped and Aki had to be the one Kai was with, it seemed really forced.

I know right? I mean, I didn't ship anyone in this anime, I would have been fine if anyone ended with anyone but I kinda liked all the development given to Aki and Frau till episode 14 when it was suddenly dropped. It was like:

01 < --- Kai x Frau development --- > 14 (Kiss) - 15 <-Kai and Frau development dropped -> 18 <-- Kai x Aki development --> 21 (Ship Sails) 22 (End)

That ending was so cliched holy shit. I could predict everything even from the first minute.
Overall really messy series, started good, but mood was too random and it gradually got worse. The last episodes were really bad...
Not enough IMPACTO I guess

I feel Chaos;Head was actually better, more focused and less cheesy in a way.

overall 4/10
Still, Frau is best girl <3<3<3

Predictable but nice Climax. Did anyone notice the AR Rocket was 'Final Version V2.05' I believe? That must mean Daru coded it! :O

8/10. The plot was badly structured (ooh crap serious shit happening! next episode: jun and her grandpa make up. wtf? I know its supposed to be heartwarming but still badly structured) and many things in the VR were left out for unknown reasons, maybe they would have been added if it was 24/25 episodes like Steins;Gate, but I'm not sure if that would've made it better.
I love dark things, so I'm kinda sad there wasn't much 'dark' stuff, but heh, that's just me, I know the VR is the same.
There were very good stuff, but also meh stuff. Kai kinda has the 'fits into every single situation' MC problem, one minute he couldn't give a single shit. The next he's passionate about robots. Aki was annoying, Jun was too much of a moe character, Male-Tsundere-Glasses-Guy was funny though, and Frau is the best character out of all.

On second thoughts I might just put this is a review. Still entertaining and a good pass on time, I'm glad I watched the rest of this anime, as I was planning to stop by episode 2.

Pretty good ending. I liked the brief glimpse of the future of Gunvarrel at the very very end.

7/10

Glad Misa was saved at the end aswell and I guess I was wrong about Kai dying, surprised he managed to hold out with 3 "seizures".

What a fantastic show this has been, so many lovely and fantastic characters, animation topnotch ofc.
There were a few things that bothered me but it didnt distract me from the main storyline.
I also loved how it had some references to Steins;Gate, not just Nae being in this show but other stuff like SERN.

9/10

I don't see why viewers compare this to steins gate. Robotic Note's is a decent anime and I liked it. I was hoping there be more romance moments between Akiho and Kaito 7/10

It wasn´t bad but it could have been better. I am very disappointed, this series has so many unanswered questions.

I'm not comparing it to Steins;Gate or Chaos;Head, but it's definitely lackluster at best. It had some good moments hither and thither but overall it was a mediocre attempt at being a great anime with a solid story. The ending is totally un-cool if you ask me.

Really good ending. A bit abrupt. And like the last few episodes a bit rushed. But I still loved it. I liked how it gave everyone remotely important a role in the final confrontation. I liked the fake out of the Wyvern breaking down into a smaller and faster robot. I loved Kai having to go dark for a few minutes to reboot and load the deus ex programina. And I loved Aki risking life and limb to help Kai. Riding out to face Misa on her scooter. On the off chance she could briefly regain control when seeing her little sister's life at risk. Those crazy kids.

I liked the very end too. I sort of wanted to see Aki and Kai together and relationshipy after the fact. But even though I'd kind of forgotten Kai wanted to be an astronaut originally. I got some little warm fuzzies at the very end. Part of me thinks this ended a little too cleanly and nice. Neither Kai nor Misa had to die to save the day. The only one who died was the bad guys uploaded AI personality. But when I think about it Steins;gate had a pretty feel good ending too. It just didn't feel that way because we also saw the dark ending where everything did not turn out OK. What with the time travel and all.

I liked this series. I was compelled by its characters. I especially loved all of the Robotics Club dorks (of course). It had a gripping plot even if it was a little silly and under explained in a few places. It may have benefited from being about 25 episodes. Could have paced it better and explained more. But as is I give it a solid 8/10. I was hooked, I was moved and I was even creeped the fuck out in a few places. The "kogame kogame" stuff was honestly super spooky. Sort of sad it's over. Want to play the VN now if they ever release it state side.

Is there any information about Frau's mother? It's been 4 years.

The question isn't "What anime do you like?" That is merely a list.
The question is "Why do you like it?" That tells a story. Your story.

Thanks for your post SubscriberSun, appreciated that review to remind me of the things I loved about this anime. I struggled with the last episode cause while it was good, it covered stuff off, I could tell I was going to be left yearning many things! Turned to the forums for solace LOL ;-)
It didn't finish very stong, and I think it's possibly because of the content they had to fit into too few episodes, just couldn't do justice to the rich storyline and charachters already built.
Having said, you reminded to think back to what I did love, and there's still so much of it.
I mean, Frau.. 'you REAL LIFERS!'... GOLD!
Also receiving Misa back from Kimijima's hold, and her thanking Aki, in her right mind. I feel toward the end of the series we began to want to know Misa, but never did, which is a parallel to what Akiho was feeling after seven long years. I thought this feeling was apt (in contrast to lack of development of Mizuka's character, who though I wanted to mourn her I just couldn't as we never really knew her).
I remember more than a few nights lying awake for hours just caught up with the beautiful characters and their interactions; as well as plotting out what's going to happen, whose on our side, and how crazy some of those future tech concepts are.

So sum-up before I end up writing a memoir.. last episode sunk my heart a bit (though I wanted to stay strong..), but I think back on what I loved through the series and feel enriched by it.
Thanks Mages team and Production I.G. :-)

PS. I still maintain they should have captured and put Kimijima into a pacman game so he could run to save his bytes haha ;-)

I loved the shit out of this. A school club builds a giant robot and saves the world, all of the other details don't really matter as much, even if they were done pretty well anyway. At times; weird as fuck, contrived and over the top, it was like a super robot show on the sly, but was still done with a sort of nuance. I liked the characters and their world quite a bit, every episode was like meeting again with old friends, and I don't say that very often. They nailed the lighthearted tone perfectly in my opinion, even when it gets serious, it's not really serious.

Aki's entire storyline has a profound sadness to it, she really is a great character and Kai is a very subtly written protagonist.

It was nowhere near the same level as Steins Gate or Steins Gate 0 but it was far better adapted than both the chaos child and chaos head adaptations. The plot was more easy to understand than the later.

I give it an 8/10, /I hope Dash is adapted one day that ones story is an even bigger and better story than the first game if the adaptation is done right.

IMPACTOOO! LOL

Safe ending and a better ride than Chaos;Head and Chaos;Child. The moments between Aki and Kai were adorable up until the end.

I hope Dash gets animated. Would like to know what becomes of Aki and Kai. What happened to Kona's mom? Since Misa tossed a lily (I think) into the ocean where Irei died, does that imply yuri?

At the end, did Kai become an astronaut?
