Many many years ago, I stumbled upon this series while attempting to find a new series to watch. When I was told by many anonymous users, forum-goers, and various other individuals that it was the best thing since sliced bread, I decided to give it a watch. After watching the first and second season (the latter of which took Funimation a century to license), I'm a bit confused as to what my experience was. Why was this? Let's dive in.
Steins;Gate is a masterpiece. Anyone who says otherwise without giving you definitive proof of some kind of bad plot hole or character stretch is simply a hater. Don't try to reconcile with them, cause they don't deserve to enjoy what this anime has to offer.
I really can't describe the experience of watching Steins;Gate, you've just gotta do it. If you don't do it, you're missing out.
It's great. Time-travelling and shit, confusing things and shit, Moeka's sexy body and shit. What's not to like?
Okay, yes. I did say in a thread earlier beforehand that I was going to review Gankutsuou next, but to be perfectly honest, the show is taking more time to get to where it's going than a snail strapped to an anchor dragging it's way from one end of the Sahara to the next. So unless the show has a point it's trying to reach, which I really hope it does, I don't see how I can write a review in which I'm investing about as much time into as the US government is investing in anything but war.
"She's the general manager of all the trouble I've gotten into since April. She's the root of all evil in the universe. The person behind every threat to my existence. Uh, yeah...her."
A long time ago in a forum thread not so far away, I submitted a piece for the JustDubs Review of the Month contest, a competition whose winner was curiously never decided. Undeterred however, I felt my review was somewhat rushed anyway and there was definitely room for improvement and expansion. Thus, many months of procrastination later I finally mustered up the motivation to rewrite it... while on a road trip when I had nothing better to do and was cut off from all outside communication.
