Synopsis: The dark untold story of Steins;Gate that leads with the eccentric mad scientist Okabe, struggling to recover from a failed attempt at rescuing Kurisu. He decides to give up and abandons his lively scientist alter ego, in pursuit to forget the past. When all seems to be normal, he is seemingly pulled back into the past by meeting an acquaintance of Kurisu, who tells him that they have begun testing a device that stores the memory of a human and creates a simulation of them with their characteristics and personalities. Okabe begins testing and finds out that the simulation of Kurisu has brought back anguish and some new unexpected tragedies. Zero is a side story that explores events from the Beta Attractor Field's future that contribute in making the end of the original story possible.

Steins Gate alt ending with 23 eps? really? Liked the series, but not sure this is necessary... seems like 'milking it' again... as the original had 'alt' endings.

not a prequel (despite title) but 'side story' S2, S;G is the only ';' series i liked :)

So we are in a beta world line where Christina is dead and somehow became a proper AI of sorts, but we still have time shenanigans and the world line jumping is still a think too.

'Yes it's me i'm done refreshing all my SG memories after years, despite SERN RL stuff delayed a BR·marathon' ;p... so now Daru's future 3D waifu as main of its new cast, but by ep.3 cliffhanger i wonder if 0karin will start to fade (film):o

I finally got around to finishing this, I'd been introduced to it by one of the manga spinoffs, and liked the idea, but had enough other stuff going on that I stalled out at ep 2... and I regret not following it weekly now. I'd been following the Suzuha focused spinoff mangas, and thinking I'd get around to finishing the anime at some point, and I ended up marathoning the series yesterday.

The time travel concepts were quite entertaining and easy to follow (Although I'm sure it helped that I was familiar with all of them already) and I really liked the way Okabe's character matured as he suffered through things. Okabe and Kurisu's growth was remarkable, and in the extra 25th ep, I liked the way they finally got their happy ending.

I really liked the landlord. I bet it drove him CRAZY in timelines where he worked for SERN that Okabe called him by his SERN codename by pure fluke. I'm curious to see how the spinoff about his past turns out.

Did the VN expand any on the origin of Reading Steiner? The anime gives the idea that at some point, he attempted to time-leap into his 8 year old self, giving himself the "memory seeds" of "the organization" (SERN), FB ("MISTAA BRAUN~"), his initial love of time travel, and his fear of losing Mayuri. (his frantic moment of panic in the scene with Mayuri at her grandmother's grave in the flashback where the adult Okabe's mannerisms surface.)

All in all, I loved it. Waiting for the movie. If it's not a simple recap of the series, I'm expecting them to reveal a hidden danger lurking in the prediction that Suzuha's mother received and have another adventure based on it. (it was a little too spot on.)

i'm hoping this '0' to answer many S1 questions like SERN's origin, why Kurisu (0r Amadeus?) joins it as Suzuha said... i wasnt satisfied by how its Movie ends so, the plot thickens in ep'5 with her found lookalike and Moeka as·ally(?):huh:

So far I feel somewhat lost, but also at the same time trying to piece together what the hell has been happening so far. Apparently the reasoning for the Reading Steiner to kick in was due to Russia doing their time machine testing. I guess it would explain as to why he was jumping world lines there without the microwave or his D-Mail ability either.

Yeah, doing a research project without no previous knowledge on the subject... ongoing... have to immerse oneself to get any feel on the data accumulated.. otherwise hard to form any opinions on it.

How is this anime side story going? I did like the original.. it was unique, though I've never seen any of the other : as you referred to Chaos something.. My biggest problem with this return to 'old' animes, is that I don't remember them that well... same with the new sequel FLCL... which I haven't seen yet either.

ep.12 just got more confusing, by ED cliffhanger and Kagari's childhood song... i think its 'zero' means inexistent timeline, well here is what i pointed above :P
