The dark untold story of Steins;Gate that leads with the eccentric mad scientist Okabe, struggling to recover from a failed attempt at rescuing Kurisu. He decides to give up and abandons his lively scientist alter ego, in pursuit to forget the past. When all seems to be normal, he is seemingly pulled back into the past by meeting an acquaintance of Kurisu, who tells him that they have begun testing a device that stores the memory of a human and creates a simulation of them with their characteristics and personalities. Okabe begins testing and finds out that the simulation of Kurisu has brought back anguish and some new unexpected tragedies.

Zero explores events from the Beta Attractor Field's future that contribute in making the end of the original story possible. written by myanimelist.net

Loved, loved, REALLY loved the first Steins;Gate anime TV series with it's time travel plot and paradoxes. The movie after that was great too.

I've never played the VN... but am loving it so far. In this timeline, seeing Okabe move away from his energetic side, a glimpse at a very bleak future revolving around Kurisu. And seeing adorable Mayuri again!

I watched the first two episodes and I'm kind of unsatisfied. I know it's important for Rintaro to come to terms with certain things, but with World War III still looming over everyone's heads, it seems a waste to spend so much time with what should be a the B-plot and yes ever since AI was brought into it, that's been the focus. It's not a horrible idea, it's just a bigger deal than I feel it should be. Hopefully soon they'll balance the two plots out and make them work.

My only knowledge of Steins;Gate is the first anime series and the movie, so I'm certainly finding this very thrilling, unpredictable and new to me. :)

Initially I was so nostalgic seeing Mayuri and Faris again.

I'd highly recommend playing one route of the VN before starting this as you really don't get to know any of the characters nearly as well, and the whole thing with WW3 is covered a lot better.  Regardless, still enjoying this anime quite a bit, and look forward to the rest of it.

I have been watching the episodes here, though behind because I switched to the dub, and I am not too sure what to think right now.

it still seems to be somewhat in the beginning portion of things, but I kind of want to see where things are going.

Would going through the VN be as pointless as WEE, drill?

Well I'm already committed to the anime adaptation and am happy with the pacing so far. 

It's just my own personal preference, if there's an anime adaptation I will see it first (even with knowledge there's a prior VN/manga before it) - for me, it leaves me guessing. 

I am sure I will definitely check it out after the anime if there are alternative endings... 😃

I hope you're not referring to World End Economica because if Steins;Gate 0 is one tenth as good as World End Economica, then it will be amazing.

I am afraid so. It just does not work well as a VN, kinetic or otherwise, so I will have to disappoint you. I think Clannad and Narcissu were both superior to that novel.

@brycec I haven't read the whole thing yet, but definitely really good from what I have read.  It starts out pretty slow, but when it picks up it does so really fast.  Also, not nearly as convoluted as the original for entering routes.  From what I've experienced so far, these aren't romantic routes like the original either.

@Optic there are alternate endings, just not romantic in nature from what I've experienced.  Don't know if that would be a make or break deal for you.

      Even after watching and re-watching Steins;Gate, I still have no idea how did Okabe develop the ability of the Reading Steiner. I know that it was depicted that he might have gotten it around the time he fell sick in his childhood around Y2K. I have been wondering for a long time now as to how was he able to develop this ability. All and any discussions are welcome.

      The self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents out a room in a rickety old building in Akihabara, where he indulges himself in his hobby of inventing prospective “future gadgets” with fellow lab members: Mayuri Shiina, his air-headed childhood friend, and Hashida Itaru, a perverted hacker nicknamed “Daru.” The three pass the time by tinkering with their most promising contraption yet, a machine dubbed the “Phone Microwave,” which performs the strange function of morphing bananas into piles of green gel.
      Though miraculous in itself, the phenomenon doesn’t provide anything concrete in Okabe’s search for a scientific breakthrough; that is, until the lab members are spurred into action by a string of mysterious happenings before stumbling upon an unexpected success—the Phone Microwave can send emails to the past, altering the flow of history.
      Adapted from the critically acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, Steins;Gate takes Okabe through the depths of scientific theory and practicality. Forced across the diverging threads of past and present, Okabe must shoulder the burdens that come with holding the key to the realm of time.
