The first part was great comedy with Okabe getting caught at the Airport (was obvious) and on the streets and them doing the same as they did in Japan.
The second part was a really great finale to this show with Okabe meeting Darus future with and Suzuhas mother and Okabe confessing to Kurisu.
Btw, I just found out that somewhere in the future a movie will be made but couldnt find out if its a summary or something new. It would be great it it was about the timeline Suzuha came from and shows us how Kurisu triggered WWIII.

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.)

|TL;DR is this any good?|
Aside from the animation being a bit low, it was really good, and it has quite a bit of spinoffs in manga form, and a game by nitroplus (my fav VN studio atm) from which the anime was based of.
Both good and original lead and support characters, a number of plot twists and surprises. And certainly a pleasing ending.
So, yeah, do check out

As for the series, I've heard a lot of people praise the series as the masterpiece of the last 10 years blah blah, but I'm quite dubious. I dropped it about 2/3 in, because I got bored and tired of it. It's not bad as far as VN adaptations go, and quite watchable if you can put up with the fact that useless banter makes up about 80-90% of the series' content. It also took me a lot of effort so suspend my disbelief at times.
I was hoping to read the original VN instead though. I heard there was a translation project that's almost ready. Unfortunately, it seems like some licensing company took it - JAST USA of all things - so now it'll probably take a few years to see the light of the day. (IIRC, when JAST did that to Eien no Aselia - and the translation patch was already complete and bug-fixed by then - it took them about a year to year and a half to release it, a game which was basically ready to go. Who knows how long it takes them to release an unfinished translation project...)

Well, I cant really say its the masterpeace of the last 10 years or anything, but its certainly better than most of the fluff we get every single season. Though might be the fact that I actually like shows with loads of "banter", since it my eyes it allows me to understand the characters' personalities a bit better.

|Well, my problem was that Okabe was annoying as hell, and that the banter consisted mostly of /b/ references I couldn't care less for.|
But was he annoying because his overall character wasn't plausible or because his "Hououin Kyouma" theatrical personality was annoying as hell?

|The latter, because I dropped the series before the former could start to bother me too much.|
Well that's an effective way to answer my question and not allow me to bring in any counter-arguments

I knew this series was suppose to be amazing and at the time of it's airing, I wanted to watch it but I had no time. I had been seeing this regularly in the top 10 anime of MAL and I believe this series deserves that praise and respect.
I was a little reluctant at first because the high praise was increasing my expectations exponentially and that fact that this series is supposedly related to Chaos;Head (which I thought was a mediocre series that was really frustrating to watch at times), I'm glad that the connections end after both series are set in the same universe. Now, I'm eager to watch Robotics;Notes, which I have been looking forward to watch since it's announcement and shouldA probably have around 7 or 8 episodes released already for it.
The OVA was great too as it continued to confirm that the characters dreamed of their other world line experiences. I was glad for Okabe that he's finally able to settle and save everyone that he cared about. That's why I am eagerly awaiting the movie that's suppose to be the sequel to the TV series.
My rating for both the TV series and OVA episode is that it is a masterpiece and gets a score of 10/10. I can't wait to watch another series that gives me goosebumps, has wonderful characters and brilliant story progression.
One word to describe this series is AWESOMENESS!!
