This did not deter me with Noragami but feel that's a bit different.
    I gave it an 8, despite what I might have said. It's mostly a comedy about dealing with the fact that a human has effectively become a god, and is weak compared to others. But she makes friends and stuff among gods and yokai. It definitely doesn't take itself very seriously. Sometimes it feels like a slice of life, sometimes there are important storylines, but overall it's a good time.

    S;G0 3 - What was that end. Nani.

    So, knowing how the original S;G ends with the S;G world line going into episode 24, and S;G0 being required to happen so he can send the video back to himself to watch in episode 23 so his past self can then enter into the S;G world line, everything in S;G0 is required to happen, meaning that this show is bound to lead towards WWIII and there's nothing that can be done about it. It makes me feel bad for Suzu if that's the case, since her goal will never come to fruition. Also makes me wonder if the show will ever enter WWIII and if we will see the video be made by the end.

    Other than that and whatever the fuck happened at the end, Nae is adorable.

    But Suzu's goal was never to change her own future, it was to create a new world line for everyone else, as far as I know at least. She kinda knew nothing would change for her. At least, if I remember right.

    So what is your top 3 OPs this season?

    1)
    (its a man with a mission duh)

    2)

    3) (3 because its same, but changed a little)

    Note that animes that still run from previos season dont count (like darling in the frank). They must have 4 episodes at max and not more. They only count as new season (like hero academia)

    Top 3 endings:

    Finally got around to watching FranXX 15. A bit melodramatic but pretty good episode. That transformation scene was a great nod to KLK. I'm definitely much more interested in the story now that it showed the human-shaped thing that was inside that broken core. Ichigo's 180 on Hiro and 02 was a bit jarring; she went from slapping her and being emo about it to "I'm happy for you two" pretty fast.

    In episode 23 she was sent back to tell Okabe to go and save Kurisu, which he attempts to do and fails. There it diverges first into the S;G0 beta line where WWIII happens, which is required for him to then send back the video and have Okabe go back and save Kurisu again, this time succeeding and creating the Steins;Gate world line, correct?

    Then if S;G0 is following the continuation of the beta line and the Steins;Gate world line never happened, Suzu's goal remains the same in attempting to get Okabe to go back and save Kurisu. Unless in the original beta worldline Suzu was never sent back by Okabe, and Okabe never attempted to save Kurisu the first time and failed to do so, but that wouldn't make sense, because Okabe knows he must fail once before he can go back and save her properly the second time.

    Since Suzu's goal remains the same in getting Okabe to go back and create the Steins;Gate world line where WWIII never happens, I assume that's her entire purpose in S;G0 and why she's so irritated. She's essentially stuck in the current time in S;G0 with a functioning time machine and can't fulfill her goal. Though if she does fulfill her goal, she then disappears

    Though I could be completely wrong here. I haven't seen the S;G 23 beta episode yet, going to watch it soon with a friend so I'm waiting on it. Though now that I'm thinking about it, for Okabe to fail once, Suzu would have to go back on future Okabe's orders to try and save Kurisu with no video, since Okabe does not know that past Okabe will fail, so he doesn't make a video. But then that would mean that there are multiple futures. One where Okabe never goes back to save Kurisu, which is required for him to go in the future and have Suzu sent back to attempt to save her, and then have that fail and the S;G0 beta line happen, where that Okabe then sends Suzu back with the intent for him to fail once and then show him the video to try again and succeed. S;G0 could be in that middle line where Okabe already lived into WWIII once, sent Suzu back, Suzu failed, Okabe is living through the beta line again with that knowledge and Suzu beside him, and then realizes he can send back the video to have the Steins;Gate line Okabe watch the video after failing, save Kurisu, and open up the Steins;Gate world line.

    Either way, the Suzu in the Steins;Gate 0 beta line wants Okabe to still go back, right? Though if he does, she will disappear like she did when the Steins;Gate world line was created in episode 23. I assume her disappearing meant she actually disappeared from existence, because in the Steins;Gate world line she was never sent back by Okabe because WWIII never happened.




    Holy fuck this shit is confusing. I think I lost myself half way through there.

    Watched my first reverse harem, Kiss Him, Not Me. The other "WataMote". I like the fujoshi main character as well as Nishina geeking out over anime things and shipping, and it was amusing. Just not quite as funny as I had hoped, and the show was meant purely for humor. But, it was entertaining enough. They kind of shoved character backstories in late, and focused too much on some characters and not enough on others, but oh well.

    Yagate Kimi ni Naru Gets TV Anime in October



    Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and blushes, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her...she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That's when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she's inspired to ask her for help. But when the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself, has her shoujo romance finally begun?

    I've been reading this. It's cute and the art is pretty good. The story is decent and has a little bit of weight despite being yuri.

    Okay I'm gonna make an attempt here.

    Yes. This is why I said S;G0 isn't a spinoff, and it isn't a side story. It's very core to the actual ending, without these events, Okabe would have never got the video encouraging him it's possible to save Kurisu. There's more to it than just this of course, a bit of a twist/revelation in regards to how he figures this out

    Quote Originally Posted by Zatheyll View Post

    The Suzu thing is probably the most confusing here. Because the ORIGINAL Suzu was sent back by Daru. Okabe died before he finished the time machine, hence Daru was the one to make the time machine.

    The one that shows up at the end of S;G is a 2nd Suzu, that was sent yeah, to specifically get Okabe to save Kurisu. It's unclear if that Suzu for the first attempt is actually the same Suzu in the second attempt though, to me at least.
    Since she says "I'm sorry I misled you" basically since she knew the first attempt would fail, it seems as if it's the same Suzu.

    But it's a different Suzu than the one who's in S;G0 I believe, since the events that happen in S;G0 are what enable the ending to S;G.

    It's wonky time travel nonsense.
    The S;G ending already takes into account that the events of S;G0 happened. So at some point, for S;G's ending to happen, there has to be a point where Okabe gives up on saving Kurisu. Otherwise, Okabe would never make the time machine that sends back Suzu

    She's torn between being mad at Okabe, but also definitely sympathetic to how much pain he's been through. But yeah, she's definitely irritated about the whole situation. Although it makes me wonder how they're going to handle how the visual novel did it, because

    These are Steins;Gate 0 visual novel ending spoilers-
    There's an ending called Vega and Altair, where Suza and Mayuri decide to time travel instead to encourage Okabe to try again. This is apparently covered a bit more in another drama CD more in depth, but it's why Mayuri slaps Okabe instead of protecting him. Because future Mayuri calls past Mayuri, and warns her that Hououin Kyouma will disappear if she does nothing. So...this is technically a part of the ending that IS needed too, in order to fulfill the real ending.

    I have never seen that episode myself honestly. It seems like it's just a general sum up of the end result that S;G0 needs to head towards.
    The issue with S;G that I won't ever deny is that the whole time line nonsense is...well, a headache to deal with.
    It's like, there's one situation that could be world line that's 1.00001315151%, and then another that's 1.00001315152%, and the difference being some clock broke or something.
    This is a bit of guesswork here, but I guess there's two different futures.

    One where Future Okabe had no idea his past self will fail.
    Once he fails though, it shifts to the S;G0 WL, where he knows he fails, so he sends the video.
    Although, the video was there even in the original S;G at the start. Okabe gets a scrambled/corrupted text that he ignores. So it's a bit hard to say. I imagine the corruption is because the text couldn't send properly between world lines.

    Yes, and yes. I guess the better way to think of the world lines are as railroad tracks. There's still only one train (reality), but it switches between them. By forcing it back onto another track, she disappears because that future doesn't happen.

    The reason she isn't been TOO pushy about it is because the time machine can sit there safely for a year before they risk not having enough fuel.

    Comic Girls episode 4 summed up in one image.

    This show is consistently making me laugh, and it's cute and fun. It's like Slow Start from last season, but with an actual premise. Although Slow Start had an actual supporting cast.

    new game s1 and 2 what a bunch of indecent lesbians. Ko was probably my favourite girl. ponytail suit had a great design. Also found it comical that they talk about how important it is to design the background characters carefully in game but then the anime doesn't ever put any effort into background characters. praise the shitty japanese work conditions!

    I always held an N64 controller the "wrong" way. My right hand on the right end, as usual, but the left hand on the left end, instead of the middle. It always felt unnatural to me to use the control stick from the angle of below it when holding the middle part.

    I liked Ko too, second only to Waifumi.

    That sounds super awkward for hitting the Z trigger.
