Steins;Gate 0 Ep 14 – The Disapearance of Kagari Shiina

Time has always been a very fluid construct in fiction. Once you’re no longer bound by time, it can become suddenly very difficult to keep linear timelines straight! This week Steins;Gate 0 yet again played with time and just a little with our minds. Although only two weeks have actually gone by since the last...

Steins;Gate 0 Ep 13 – Discrepancy

You know it just wouldn’t be Steins;Gate if someone didn’t loose it. In fact, I’m pretty surprised at how well everyone’s been keeping it together so far. However, now that Kagari has regained some of her childhood memories, she seems adamant to regress right back to said childhood. And why not, she’s earned her breakdown....

Arthifis and Irina misinterpret Steins;Gate 0 (pt3)

We’re back with our 3rd instalment of completely making a mess out of Steins;Gate’s lore. You guys are lucky that Arthifis is around to keep me on track. I had this whole thing about umbrellas and penguins… Just for a bit of context – we ended last post with me ging on a long rambling...

Arthifis and Irina misinterpret Steins;Gate 0

Hello everyone, Today we’ve got a special treat! Not for you guys, for me… I’m not sure how many of you follow my Steins;Gate 0 reviews but if you’ve been around my blog for a while, you probably got the feeling that I don’t dislike the Steins;Gate franchise in general. I guess you could even...

Steins;Gate 0 Ep 12 – MEAMs

Do you want to hear something really interesting? Apparently, Alzheimer’s doesn’t erode memories of music. The studies on the subject are still rather recent so the mechanisms behind it all remain mysterious. As you can imagine this finding has renewed interest in MEAMs or Music-Evoked Autobiographical Memories. The moments we associate to music stay anchored...

Steins;Gate 0 Ep 11 – Anti-Thesis

At some point, excitement hits a point of diminishing returns. Any good narrative needs to know when to take a little break and give the audience a chance to breathe. Or else, little by little, consequences start to loose their impact and you risk making viewers Jared and too exhausted to care.

Steins;Gate 0 Ep 10 – Space Time Oddity

I think I may finally have gotten that filler episode I’ve been clamoring for. Steins;Gate 0 took a deep breath this week and just sort of chilled. We didn’t get any major revelations or action sequences, instead the show took a little time to indulge in some silliness, some light-hearted humour and some dubious fan...

Steins;Gate 0 Ep 9 – The Comfort of a Familiar Ache

At this point in my life, I’ve made my peace with the fact that I’m John Snow… I know nothing. I’ve read a few reviews for Steins;Gate 0 that accuse it of being very poorly written drivel relying entirely on nostalgia. That may be true, after all, what do I know? All I can say...
