Third episode was fun. Show is good but still not as great as preseason expectations. Standard keep the club going not enough members theme and some romance are not super strong long term plots.

I seriously love this show. I can't wait until the rest of the members (from the OP) finally join them. :3

This is really good.
I'm in love with Kai already.

Oreki's replacement.

They better have an explanation for these illnesses that are at least semi-plausible in terms of actual science or the show will be in danger of losing me. The mysterious illness thing is never one of my favorite plot choices in the first place, but in a show that is a "science adventure" series, it needs to take the science seriously.

So wanted to to love this show but it is such a cliche fest already, school club going to be shut down if it doesn't get more (reluctant) members, the mysterious tsundere transfer student, blah. At this point I could drop it and wouldn't care as they are still setting up and there is no long term vision aside from getting the robot to work. Relunctant Kill Ballad player will eventually agree to control it, secret robot builder student will help to make it work, Kill Ballad programmer tsundere girl will write its programming, yatta! Were my expectations too high? Again I should probably drop it so I can stop bothering every one who is enjoying it...

Well, to each his own. I think that might be holding this show to too high a standard. As much as I may dislike "red matter" from Star Trek, it served its purpose as a plot device. And really, if you look too closely at any show you'll find plenty of nits to pick. In the end, everyone has their own level of tolerance for certain things in a show. It's only after those "things" disrupt your suspension of disbelieve that you start having problems with a show. That hasn't happened with me yet for Robotics;Notes, but I can tell other people are having problems.

I agree there are plenty of clichés in this show, but I'm willing to wait to see how the story plays out before I'm too critical. If it only was a matter of clichés then there would be a huge chunk of anime I'd never watch again.

If you knew that already, I can only assume you've played the Robotics;Notes game... so I would also assume you'd already know whether or not the illness that Kai/Akiho suffer from is tied to Steins;Gate... ^_^;;

It may not seem like a major plot point to you, but that's not for you to decide... sorry if I seem mean, because I actually agree with everything you said here (and thankfully I already spoiled what you brought up for myself earlier)...

Even though things seem pretty cliche right now, I feel like they've hinted at enough "other stuff" going on to whet my appetite for more. Since you did ask the question, I do feel like you might have set your expectations too high... I'm not really sure exactly what you were expecting at this point in the story.

Not to mention the differing opinions of people regarding the already completed shows in this series... while opinions of Steins;Gate seem overwhelmingly positive, I have noticed there's quite a few Steins;Gate fans who actually didn't like Chaos;Head. So it seems like a definite possibility that just being a Steins;Gate fan will not automatically make you like everything this creative team has done...

But for me, I usually have to *really* dislike something in order to drop it once I start watching it for free online... a show just being generic/cliche typically isn't enough to scare me off. I can think of a number of anime that rank among my most favorite and could be considered the most unique shows which I would have judged as just cliche if I cut the show off at Episode 4.

As I said earlier in this thread, it is your decision... so feel free to ignore everything I just said... ^_^;;

I don't hate it, just expected more from it. I shouldn't really have been surprised as the description mentioned the robot club which doesn't have enough members and is in danger of being disbanded from before the season began but somehow I thought it would be more original.

Not looking to change anyone's mind or be convinced to keep watching it, just making observations. I watch a lot of shows so things just tend to fall off my list if I don't really like them. I would love to be wrong, would love the show to finish introducing things and bring in a great story for the last eighteen episodes.

Yeah, I hear what you're saying... my opinion about the show is pretty made up, so I certainly don't mind hearing from others. If the whole club storyline is bothering you this much, though, maybe a better plan would be to stop watching it as it comes out week to week... then come back once the series is complete and get the feelings of those of us who did watch it all the way through. Then if it sounded like things moved in a direction you'd like, you could always go back and marathon-watch it... nothing wrong with doing that... ^_^

Everything in my post has either already happened in the show or was featured in the early publicity for the show. Since this is a thread about Robotics;Notes, it is presumed that people are here to discuss the current episode of the show. I put the stuff about Steins;Gate in spoilers because this is not a thread about that show and people that haven't watched it, but are watching Robotics;Notes, might be reading the thread.

I have not played the game, I read the pre-show publicity that announced that character as appearing in it and said what her age was. That was sometime last spring when the show, or maybe the game, was announced.

I'm one of the more cliché tolerant anime fans around, in general. This particular one is just one that rubs me the wrong way. If they have a decent explanation for it, which I expect they will based on the info I have seen about the show, then it will be fine.
