At first glance Robotics;Notes looks like a slice-of-life anime about high school kids trying to make robots and fight with it, but all of that is just the tip of the iceburg. Following the same formula of Steins;Gate we will be shown bit by bit mysteries revolving around the characters and the world itself. Besides the Divergence rate that shows it’s a continuation of the “True End” of Steins;Gate, which is the last episode of the anime. It’s actually 9 years after the events of Steins;Gate. I’m not going to post any major spoilers, but I wil lsay this for the sake of just motivation There will be recurring characters from the previous series, which is from Steins;Gate and Chaos;Head.

    • I’m just giving a prior warning, Like I said in the post, the only thing “relevant” are some characters. Both the events of C;H and S;G had little to nothing in relation to R;N.
