Alright episode 1 done

honestly it didn't really suck me in as I thought it might considering the prestige but it didn't actively push me away either, it presents just enough intrigue to make me stick with it

Steins;Gate starts a bit slow for a first timer, but it gets ROLLING.

On a rewatch, the opening episodes are much better.

SG has a bad OP and I never liked it.

Most people don't like the start of the show. The early episodes are the worst ones relative to the VN

I'm not even 100% sure about that. He was also Light Yagami. I think I probably go with Okabe anyways, but it's close.

Yeah that's part of it. It's a very well known character but for some reason not one that's strongly associated with him nowadays?

Maybe a lot of Western viewers watched the dub instead, or maybe people just didn't care about VA's as much then? I'm pretty much just guessing though.

ok one quick question and then I'll stop posting updates, just finished episode 2

uh did Hulu mess up the subtitle with the shrine maiden, because at one point Mayuri used "her" even though she also used "kun" and Okabe was having like a sexuality panic, and then Mayuri was saying "kun" after they left, so is she a trans female and Okabe and Mayuri afterward were just really fucked up or was that on Hulu for using "her" that one time

It should never have been her, Luka does not actually identify as female. It will go into stuff later with his character if course, but that's Hulu's error.

ok I figured this was the case, I'm glad because I got really uncomfortable for a bit if Okabe and Mayuri were just being really fucked up lol

A need everyone when they get the chance to boot up Afterlost and watch the scene around 13:10 with the camera pulling back from a bike leaning against a wall, and experience the feeling of that co-op Star Trek movie game's camera in anime form.

yea the list is so we can force people to come up with polls, which a lot of people hate, and also the way to make sure everyone gets a chance to make a topic and people don't have to race for the topic when one ends

speaking of S;G

I was watching it when it was airing and dropped it around 4-5 episodes in, then I saw everyone talking about it so I picked it back up and was not disappointed

Hacking to the Gate is great btw

Saw that One Piece thing Shine posted earlier.

They've found another excuse to cut out more time from the episodes, eh?

Remember when they used to actually put that stuff in front of the opening and incorporate it? That was pretty cool.

Also I've got it playing in the background right now and holy shit I cannot beleive how ugly this has gotten. Look at Nami's face Jesus. I haven't legit had a normal scene in One Piece in front of my eyes in years and this is absolutely painful, how does anyone do it?

As far as S;G OPs go, from a song standpoint the first game is still #1 easy. You have certainly heard the song, ExTha, even if you didn't realize what it was at the time.

all the greatest have their style, like Sawano stuff is immediately apparent when you hear him and all of Aimer's stuff are the same too

If I'm remembering right it covers almost the entire of the first novel, which seems to be the case based on what I've read so far today. I had to watch the episode twice to get it all when it first came out. That's straight up a show where you kind of have to watch the dub by necessity because it moves to fucking fast to actually read the subtitles.

Everything in regards to actual production quality was top notch and the visuals in a vacuum were excellent, they just totally fucked up from a pacing standpoint, I have no idea what the director was thinking making the whole show seem like it was on fast forwards.

You'd think that was marketing pandering, but the book makes a pretty big deal about her "watermelon boobs".
