I don't know if I want to say that "they didn't pull any punches" with this one or not, because although they shuffled around the order of events from the VN significantly, there wasn't really any crazy Dutch angles or dynamic cutaways like from before as far as I know. I heard there was a new director and so far it's showing.

At the very least, they seem to have made up their minds with what music to use and settled on the VN soundtrack. One episode in and we already have at least four or five tracks from the VN, plus its OP as the ED. But hey as long as the Tiny Goddess gets screentime then it's a 10/10 episode for me!

Loving it so far. I especially liked how Amadeus was name dropped and the OP from the visual novel (song is named after Amadeus) started playing. That was a nice touch. I didn't expect them to play that song so early. I figured it'd be after a big moment like how Skyclad Observer played in episode 23 of the original series and that the first episode would just end with the anime's OP (guess we'll hear it next week?).

Looks like I need a rewatch of the original because it's been so long I have forgotten who some of the side characters are.

Man such a great episode, but fuck if I was Okabe and had to go through all those time lines I'd probably die from all the madness. Can see where his PTSD comes from and how real it is. Can't wait to see how he overcomes it and it nice to see everyone maturing.

Been looking forward to this for over a year now. Kinda sad it won't have the same magic as the first one since I've played the Visual Novel already and know how it's going to go for the most part.

This might be one of those cases where I wait for the entire season before I watch the show, given the complexities involved.

Episode 2

Once again, it begins with another song by Kanako Ito. Can't have a show with two words and a semicolon in-between without her opening things up.

The mystery sure has reopened in a big way as the professor and Maho showcase their new invention at the seminar where it is possible to communicate with somebody's past self called the Amadeus system. That was used to set up a conversation between Okabe and a past version of Kurisu, but this version seems to be one that has never met him. That sure did raise a lot of questions, and not to mention it got me thinking that this was what Kimijima used years later. Anyway, this season got to the heart of the matter quickly compared to the original series.

Episode 2

Best OP song of the season imo.

This was an interesting episode regarding the technology that is Amadeus. The way it converts human memory into digital data and make it into an AI....that's just something I find really fascinating. It seems it's not perfect yet but the way it replicated Kurisu's mannerism is spot on, including her personality.

I'm really curious to see more of about Hiyajo and Kurisu's past though as she seems to reacted in quite an emotional way this episode.

So did they not even include an Amadeus version of Maho?

Remember Kurisu created the time leap machine in the last series by reading and digitizing memories.

Also with regards to Maho and Kurisu, it's interesting because at least in the first Visual Novel, if not the first TV series, she told Okabe that she didn't have any friends at the lab in America, that everyone was too stuffy and serious and no one really got along.

Episode 2

Things start off with someone bad mouthing Kurisu's work but the mad scientist was not gonna have none of that and stands up for her. We than see the Amadeus in work as they use Maho memories to create an AI for the seminar. Later during the party Okabe and Maho talk and he mentions that he meet Kurisu before and when the lead researcher comes gives him the idea to introduced him to the other AI. Well the AI is none other than Kurisu and it sure was funny how she made fun of Maho as she might be interested in Okabe. Okabe even calls Kurisu, Christina once again and the everyone is wondering why he calls her that. The best part of the episode had to be at the end when Amadeus has been calling Okabe and we see how much she starting to resemble Kurisu's tsun side.

It was great to see Kurisu once again even though she's an AI right now but hearing Okabe call her Christina brought a smile to my face. The op is pretty good. The new song is not bad but i still prefer Hacking to the Gate more. Well time to wait another week.

Congratulations Okabe! You now have an AI of your waifu on your phone!



It's funny how Okabe instinctively called her Christina.

When I first started this series I got confused as to why kuriisu was still dead when in the original she was alive at the end. Reading the summary on this page it makes sense and now makes me want to see this to the end in how it fixes the end of the original.

This is why the alternate Episode 23 should have been included in this season, instead of run 3 years ago with the re-airing of the original show.
