Need a recommendation whether or not to finish watching Steins Gate...

Hi everyone,

first I'm hoping I can keep this spoiler friendly, and I'd like any responses I get to be spoiler-friendly...

I need advice whether or not to finish watching Steins Gate. I started watching this and was really excited at first with the story and characters - they started out being really entertaining to me.

I've watched over a dozen episodes (the last episode I watched was the one where

I had hopes that there would be excitement like

So I ask those who have finished the series: will there be some kind of excitement, of the kind that I'd like to see? Or will it be more of the same kind of thing that I've seen so far? Because if

Thank you.

To sum it up, if you are bored with it already, I don't really see you enjoying the rest. But that's my opinion.

I myself found it quiet interesting starting from episode 12, till then it was a bit meh.

Thanks for the advice. And yes there was an episode already focusing on the character you mention, and that got them out of the lab for a while.

I admit that

I was watching SG back in August and I got stalled like I said, and I started watching Penguin Drum instead (still going strong on that one).

Maybe I might restart watching SG at a later date, after I had a break from it for a while.

That would be a good thing to do, take a break and then come back to it later. Just make sure you don't forget everything by then

Currently watching this (I'm now on episode 11). It's not boring for me at all, but I guess, it depends on the person. I love the characters; they sure are an interesting bunch. Besides that, I'm very interested in time traveling stuff. I don't normally watch sci-fi anime series though, but I got hooked with this one, so I'll keep watching it. ^-^

I was really intrigued by this series at first, and my excitement increased as it proceeded. Without spoiling anything, I'll just say that the overall plot and setting headed into a story arc that left me unenthusiastic. I had to ask, is *this* all the series is going to be about?

And the whole sub-plot about

If you stop watching the show now, you will be missing out on the best episodes in the series, in my opinion.

The last few episodes, after 19 (and especially 22 and 23) are really great because they are very emotionally intense and you can see the build-up of all the previous episodes pay off.

They are also more action-oriented episodes towards the end, although probably not as much as you would like.

So, my recommendation is if you have gone that far to watch the show until the end, since if you wait for a while, it will definitely lessen the emotional impact for you.

I have to say that 3 episodes in comparison to 19 are nothing... if he/she did not enjoy it after like 15 episodes, I don't see how his/her opinion should change...

I really think that a break would be better suited...
