Interesting first episode and I love time travel stories. It's also rather obvious who the laughing person was.

The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the potential harem aspect, can't Japan for once leave that concept alone?

It's not surprising he didn't sound like him since Panties wasn't voiced by Tomokazu Seki. And yes, Seki is indeed the one voicing the otaku.

Decent. I like how hysterical the main character is; kinda reminds me of like Saitou from Welcome to the NHK.

Also, a lot of shit happened this episode.

Something stirred up my curiosity..Hachi / 8

-The red-haired girl was stabbed on the 8th Floor.
-The conference took place on the 8th Floor.
-The building itself has 8 floors.
-The invention by Okarin is Number 8.
-The satellite crushed the highest floor, which is the 8th one..

Let me dig out that real picture that they posted Steins;Gate poster on the 8th floor of building...

Just got around to watch it. OP suprassed all my expecations with the trippy visuals and fantastic music. And like someone pointed out before, Feiris gets a special focus in it compared to the other characters that are not Mayuri or Kurisu. Didn't like the ED so much.

Onto the actual content: Nice atmosphere, character design and surprising lack of BGM. Story seems hazy and confusing but that's natural when dealing with time travel and similar themes. There will be plenty of time to unwrap all the mysteries.

Finally get to watch the unsubbed version of the TV video...

I will have to say the animation style is not bad. The somewhat changed character designs do not bother me too much.

I am not going to comment on the story - I already know the story ahead of time, so I can follow the really fast first half of the episode. The second half of the episode slows down quite a bit. There are some minor changes from the original plot (some scenes are new).
Spoiler for S;G ep 01:


Now is down to the pace and animation quality of the rest of series...

Wow, of all the things that could have possibly gone wrong and turned me off this show pretty much none of them arose. I can also kind of see myself getting into these characters. All three of the main characters in this episode kind of seem like sketchbags, but potentially interesting sketch bags.

So anyway, apparently Rintaro sending the text to his fat otaku friend may have somehow saved Kurisu's life since apparently she was never actually there in the first place now. Though I'm left wondering what the deal with the satellite was. All for future episodes to explain I'm sure.

I like this, but I recommend any new watchers (like me) to stay away from the Wikipedia page as usual since it spoils the entire plot of the VN.

IF this is the case, it may refer to: traveling to both future and past is possible...another thing that's quite obvious,
The microwave spun backwards and the bananas turned green (past), the message was sent in the past...and the girl told him that she spoke with him about 50 minutes ago (past).

Okarin's first monolugue was also quite different from the game. Since they kept all the important plot points from the game I don't mind it at all though. ^^
