I kind of regret watching this. It had a good buildup but the ultimate payoff was extremely disappointing. S;G and even C;H were more interesting overall. Not sure whether all the blame can be assigned to butchering the source material though, some of these ideas just don't work.

This totally reminds me of the hate I have for Star Driver, which would have been 10 times better if they added all the background info that they had in their bible

So basically all the explanations and much of the storyline didn't make the transition to anime. Staring at the list of other shows where Hanada was head writer and how good some of them are, his failure here is shocking.

That's why he's being called Hanada the Psycho. He is too unstable to be trusted. Back in S;G, despite how great the anime was, it still got some pacing problem, and he further reduced the presence of Feiris and Rukako, even cutting the whole yandere Nae mini-arc. He did it again with Nae(arc gone again), Junna, Subaru and others in R;N. Guess he hates minor characters? And don't leaving holes all over the place unless you're going to explain them. That's not how you write a good story, Hanada. Just never let him handle any adaptation.

Considering the pacing, it seems strange that so much was cut, as the pacing wasn't exactly...fast.

Also, does the game ever explain how Misaki knew about Kimijima Kou? The anime seems to suggest that Misaki and Mizuka both knew Kimijima from Airi, since Mizuka refers to Airi as an old friend, but is that the case?

That's an awful lot of important explanatory stuff left out. Suddenly the R;N anime feels much worse to me than I originally thought.

It's just the tip of the iceberg... if I were to explain all the differences, I might as well translating the entire VN. God it's 60 hrs worth of story...

Why not ? Share some love to quell the anger. Thanks for the previously posted spoilers though. Was wondering about more than one of those answers.

It may not be as good as the game (which I still need to buy) and may have been cliched as hell but damn I loved Robotics;Notes the whole way through. Much like Steins;Gate, the anime made me go and buy them game which I then played through and it's not my favourite series of all time. Mages didn't dissapoint me again <3

Another major thing about people complaining about plot points, I see where you're coming from, but Robo anime in itself is just a massive pile of cliches and half the stuff doesn't make any sense, if it did, it wouldn't be science fiction anymore

That you believe science fiction isn't supposed to make sense makes me so sad.

I'm probably one of the biggest sci-fi fans that I know of and when you take into account the backstories and random explanations for the majority of sci-fi (heck even Steins;Gate and I love that series to bits) none of it really makes any sense in the long haul. Even Star Trek uses technical babble half the time to cover up completely ridiculous plot lines.

So about that stage play.

It has the actors/actresses for Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red (Ryota Ozawa) as Kai, Yoko Usami/Yellow Buster (Arisa Komiya) as Aki, and Kaito/Kamen Rider Diend (Kimito Totani) as Subaru. It's like Super Hero War all over again. The rest of the cast looks nice, too, but I recognize those three.

I apologise for the bump but Robotics;Notes has finally been announced for a console other than the PS3/360. I can't wait to get my hands on the newly announced vita version and I'm really looking forward to seeing how the other arcs end. Good news for importers and fans of the series atleast.

I just marathoned both S;G and R;N and fully regret not picking them up sooner.
Spoiler for Opinions:


I don't know what else to write, I'm never good at these things. I enjoyed the show while it lasted but from what I'm reading I feel like I'm missing out on a lot. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait for a PC release.
