Great art, great setup, nice pacing, good voiceovers.

3 points docked for the visual presentation. Steins;Gate proved that exposition heavy material can be coupled with interesting storyboards and layouts. However, this episode was one step away from slide show status. The cost cutting was extreme (lots of shots with characters in the distance and no motion except for a tiny mouth flapping; lots of shots with the speaker off-screen; close ups with upper bodies moving straight across the screen. It's actually the worst I've seen in a long time), although I assume that future episodes will have more to offer.

Good art =/= good animation. I'll have to withhold judgment on the latter for now, but what little there was didn't look bad.
