    Steins;Gate 0

    [​IMG]

    Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller
    Studio: White Fox
    Source: Visual Novel
    Air Date: April 12, 2018


    Synopsis
    The dark untold story of Steins;Gate that leads with the eccentric mad scientist Okabe, struggling to recover from a failed attempt at rescuing Kurisu. He decides to give up and abandons his lively scientist alter ego, in pursuit to forget the past. When all seems to be normal, he is seemingly pulled back into the past by meeting an acquaintance of Kurisu, who tells him that they have begun testing a device that stores the memory of a human and creates a simulation of them with their characteristics and personalities. Okabe begins testing and finds out that the simulation of Kurisu has brought back anguish and some new unexpected tragedies.

    Zero is a side story that explores events from the Beta Attractor Field's future that contribute in making the end of the original story possible.

    Gonna watch the first episode tonight. Need to read up on that Metal Upa business as well. As much as I can remember, it was somewhat relevant to the incidents of Steins Gate.

    Nah, I'm talking about the Metal Oopa/Upa that Mayuri found in the first season.

    Holy Shit! This was much more intense than I was expecting for an opening episode. Also getting into the darker elements right from the start. I was also thinking the same thing that Okabe said when he had to gather his thoughts and try to remember what time line he’s in. This is going to be one of those shows that is so painfull to have to wait a week for the next episode.

    a normal

    Yeah this had a strong start! Very good episode. I feel like we will be in for some heartbreak as well with this series.

    Just hope the VN people dont spoil anything for us.

    Wait we're still in Beta timeline? Oh, should have read the synopsis. Wonder how it'll tie up to the ending of the Steins;Gate world line. But why is Okabe in the Beta timeline? Is this the version of Okabe that hasn't reached the Steins;Gate world line then? Why hasn't he? In which time-frame of the first season does the events of this show fit in? I'm guessing it's after Okabe returns from the Alpha timeline and then decides not to use Suzuha's time machine to save Kurisu.

    Lotta questions confusing my mind.

    This is the Beta timeline. He saves Mayushi but he can't save Kurisu. So life is just going on. They till need Okabe to make the time machine though because shit is still going to hit the fan in the future if he doesn't.

    Okay bear with me a bit cause my recollection of the first season is a bit fluffy. Didn't Okabe use Suzuha's time-machine to go back to the past and pull off that "unconscious Kurisu" stunt? So what's stopping him from doing that in this series? Somebody posted at the Reddit thread of the first episode discussion that he's traumatized from experiencing countless Mayuri deaths and so he can't do it all over again with Kurisu. Is that it?

    Oh wait, never mind. It's because I hadn't watched Episode 23(β). Zero is a direct resultant of that alternate episode. Will go and watch it then.

    Yeah, that was one of Okabe’s trademarks, corrupting someone’s name to reference them. Ki- ri-su = Chi-ri-sti-na. She always hated that which made Okabe stick with it.

    I thought one of the funniest lines was the part about the “legal loli”.

    Gonna put this one on hold up until half of the episodes are out. Can't keep up with all the gems this season is pumping.
