I'm honestly baffled by what the point of this character is. He's a useless fat bastard that is cringeworthy, not funny or endearing, and has that FUCKING VOICE.
I'm honestly baffled by what the point of this character is
Well you need an otaku character for memes and meta gags. He's a fat disgusting mess because you never, ever include another viable male in a harem.
He's actually pretty bro, but Sci;Adv novels tend to always have a bro character who is pretty undeverloped. He's actually pretty developed compared to most of them, considering he basically creates the plot devices and one of the plot characters too while we're at it
People are offended by certain characters because they see themselves as one.
I dropped sg because of him
I'm just glad that he didn't get a chapter of the VN.
Sci;Adv novels tend to always have a bro character who is pretty undeverloped
I don't even remember the bro character in C;H.
He was included in the VN so that the fat "inteligent" fucktard otakus can self insert
He's literally the reason the plot can even advance. He's the one that actually makes the technical shit, Okabe is basically just the idea guy.
Daru was also the only reason they figured out ANYTHING about SERN's true intentions since he hacked into them. He also saved them from the Alpha worldline by deleting the data SERN has on everyone.
Daru is honestly the most important character but he doesn't get any of the spotlight because of all the time travel shit Okabe does. Okabe literally wouldn't have been able to do shit without Daru, including even making the time machine.
if he cuts his dick off everything and everyone is fucked
Without him, nothing would have happened. Kurisu is the brains behind the science, but he's the brains behind the technical aspect of everything.
I like how everybody actually played a useful part, even Mayuri.
fuck off, supa hacka is based.
and has that FUCKING VOICE.
Go choke on a bucket full of dicks.
complaining about the voice
If we wasn't there they would need someone else to do the actual technical stuff. Okabe is great because he's obnoxious, but is hardly a true scientist.
Having Okabe be actually a genius would remove a lot of his charm. Daru is underrated in the storyline DESU
He can do pretty much anything with regard to computers, to the point that Okabe can just go and ask "Daru, hack that". Frankly, it bothers me a little bit, since they never really explained in detail how/why he got so good at that...
His role in S;G 0 is much more interesting though, there he actually does stuff by himself instead of just being "bossed" around.
No. He was just as useful as Kurisu, if not even more so.
There's that word again.
His role in S;G 0 is much more interesting though
Not to mention his involvement with Suzuha is some of the best bit of S;G 0.
Didn't know this had a manga. But damn, if you look at the VN the character design in this looks way way different.
I actually wanted him to be more developed.
When you think about it Okabe is pretty useless in the lab. He's not especially smart, he just have dumb ideas and is somehow the leader because every other member have quite big issues
not liking his voice
That manga comes before the VN, since it was adapted from Epigraph LN.
Ah I see, that makes sense.
He keeps the group focused through force of personality and gives them all direction. He's also pretty intelligent, just not AS intelligent as Kurisu and Itaru. Besides, he invented the divergence meter in the future so he's clearly no idiot.
It's okay to like harems, you know, no need for denial.
He is in fact pretty smart, he just doesn't have interest in investing his time towards some specific subject like Kurisu or Daru (at least currently).
The childhood friend of Rumi and Taku
Exactly. Calling him dumb for not being intimately familiar with neuroscience / physics / computer programming is just silly. All that means is that he lacks knowledge in those areas. Ignorance != idiocy.
English voice is better. More tech guy than dopey fat guy.
liking the dub
Pfft. He's one of the best characters for not being in the way all the time and keeping to his role.
He shows up, he does some of his otaku jargon, drops off a plot device, and then let's the chuuni husbando and tsundere lab geeks take the show back. He's great.
He did in the PSP spinoff
My money's on orgasm denial
Forced in public and denial at home.
Good for tub tubs
Correct answer is to tie her up with a detective and leave them both to hang.
Clean lineart from artist when
Literally every character except Okabe, Moeka, and Suzuha is useless or lack any meaningful character development
Daru was a bro troughout the entire novel/show. IIRC he also becomes a complete badass in the future and is a key part of the rebellion in the alpha world line.
I can't wait to see him get the woman he deserves in S;G 0
Except he did 50% of the work.
that FUCKING VOICE
Sole reason why I watched the dub.
First the former, many times. Just as she's starting to become accumstomed to it, switch to the latter and leave her in alternating complete stimulus deprivation, and stimulus that comes close but never quite reaches. Continue this until she begs for it, then place her in a situation where she'll regret begging for it and not want to orgasm, like in public or in front of her former-friends or within ear-shot of her father and proceed with the forcing method again.After the humiliation and degradation is complete, revert to complete denial for a while and then finish her off with
lots of tender, intimate foreplay and sweet vanilla slow sex
he doesnt like the voice of pic related
You gay, son?
Her curious nature leads me to believe she would break easier with orgasm denial.
He is pretty Important in S;G 0.
Is this countdown for another C;C teaser?
"Chaos;Child anime coming soon!"
Whose eyes are those eyes?
fuck off reddit
I bet you guys already know this, but Okabe and Daru university exists in real, their private University is known for it's m Engineering department, especially Electrical Engineering. So I guess Okabe is an EE student?
No it's going to be a promo for a new Gal;Gun Anime.
mfw people won't give Chaos;Head or Chaos;Child a chance because of the fucked up anime
Don't worry the news after countdown will be that Madhouse is adapting C;C.
Only thing that's confirmed is that he's some sort of engineering student.
thinking the chaos;x series is bad
not playing the VNs
I played Chaos;Head without even knowing there was an anime.
There's a C;H anime?
I watched it without even knowing there was a game, like, right after S;G anime.
No, it's just a delusion.
Deflorating and choking her in public, with orgasm denial.
Daru and Kurisu have significant character development. You're high.
Is the anime any good or should I play VN
Play the VN
Do you want to know how I can tell you're american?
Is there any chance someone will translate C;C VN? Because i doubt that there will be official release.
Isn't he also involved in Robotic;Notes?
I also remember he's in contact with Chaos;Head's MC.
So, all of the other a;b things are worth watching? When you say VN, that means the game? Do you recommedn playing those?
Did somebody say Robots?
choas;head is awful and only less awful than the anime adaptation
not liking dub, i agree that JUST his voice is better in the dub as it sounds more like he looks
Steins;Gate is the only anime adaptation worth watching out of the Sci;Adv series. It stands on its own two legs as a stand alone product, even if it did have to cut out a good chunk of content in order to fit the story into the shows runtime.
Robotic;Notes had a strong start but fell apart in the second half sicne they struggled to adapt everything from episode 12 forwards. Chaos;Heads anime is just 100% pure shit and you shouldn't watch it at all.
All the VNs are better than their anime counterparts.
he hates fun
oh, I see （＾ω＾ )
not watching the dub
People like you disgust me.
His voice is perfect.
So, who knows about all those dirty little secrets lurking under AH Tokyo General Hospital?
watching a literal reddit dub
Have they ever said why they stopped making these games for PC? My butt is legitimately flustered. I mean, don't they see the fucking leagues of weeaboos who bust their nuts daily over this shit? It's an untapped market, and PC games are the easiest to translate.
Someone probably will now that it's on PC, in 5 years or so. Easier to learn Japanese in that time.
Chaos;Child just got released on PC and Zero is next.
Yo, ho, ho!
expecting Japan to into foreign marketing
what about robotics;notes?
not liking gilgamesh's voice
Not only that but he somehow expects japan to care if fuckers on burgerlandia like VNs
they probably forgot about it
Jews of the East
not liking $$$
not liking $$$
No, they do not like having to deal with all the bullshit you introduce so they can sell their shit to you or did you forget that they stopped that Dead or Alive volley game because the US is filled with faggots?
Jump through a bunch of hoops to get pocket money from nerds that pirate everything that isn't sold on steam for $2? Sure, let's do that instead on focusing on 100 000 people that pay 8000 yen for a new copy on release date.
Get fucked americunt
i need some rest..
Zero PC is going to take a while after a possible English console release.
no ps3 version
Isn't S;G Zero getting animated soon?
I'm talking about Japanese release, and it's happening in a month.
At this rate is gonna come out first O;N anime and maybe C;C
Whens SG;0 being translated? I need an English release :^(
There's a countdown page for a C;C anime so I reckon we'll get that before O;N
It's gonna be another placeholder date.
a bro character
I want to hug Kurisu and smell her hair
My dyslexia kicked in and I read that as "I want to smell Kurisu and hug her hair"
and I regarded it as completely normal Sup Forums behavior
I mean, that works too. Smelling and hugging body parts in no particular order sounds fine to me.
Not starting with her soft, delicate hands
Daru made every important device in the series you speedreading retard.
Does she smell of Dr. Pepper?
That's a perfectly natural feeling.
I liked it better when it was called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
get the woman he deserves
Don't you mean women?
But we got more info of O;9 anime right now, so I reckon we'll get it before C;C. Or maybe we'll get both in the same season.
God, Kurisu is so cute
She just warms your heart doesn't she?
So, when is PBQUBE releasing the translation of the sequel?
That's EU though.
If it gets a release in the EU then chances are you can just import it.
2009-2011 was a different time
The Vita and PS4(?) are Freedom loving region-less consoles.
All of the characters are terrible, so he fits in well
Here's your (You).
His intonations was like he was voicing retard.
It was annoying. Fat people are not speaking like they are fucking balloons.
I felt like it fit his character well enough.
He's a useless fat bastard that is cringeworthy, not funny or endearing, and has that FUCKING VOICE.
Is this loser OPs attempt at self-loathing.
That intonation is used for all fatties.
The one from Mayoiga speaks the same way while constantly whining and complaining.
That just proves you don't belong in here, so it's no wonder you can't stand him.
And lewd. Don't forget lewd.
What about Ruka?
I resemble him minus the freaky hair.
How is it that Kurisu is so lewd?
It's who she is.
source: personal experience
A number of factors. Mainly that she carries herself quite elegantly, absolutely nails the slim body look and has an interesting innocence about her that feels genuine rather than pandering.
Stop looking in the mirror then.
That makes sense, especially the innocence. It feels like a natural facet of her personality that makes sense in context instead of something inexplicably shoved in. She's always been noticeably more attractive to me than other 2D / 3D women.
Is Zero anime coming this year?
Chiyomaru does a good job writing realistic characters for the most part, with a fair amount of depth and happen to match archetypes/tropes rather than be defined by them.
Probably because it's not shoved in your face and it's just treated as a part of the character. It's not like she's running around in a bikini while moaning about how pure she is, she's just a girl with no social life and a corresponding lack of social skills and experiences. It's consistent with the rest of the character and feels like it's brought up for a reason.
Chiyomaru isn't a writer, is he?
Fuck everything then, I want it this year ;_;
For some reason I used to be under the impression that the anime would air when the VN came out.
I felt this way about the anime in general, it was pointless and a zero sum experiment, fuck all happens except a literal beta orbiter falls in love because he spent so long chasing the same woman
yea but he has a hot daughter
I dropped this piece of shit after they turned the trap into a girl, did I miss anything?
yea, they turn her back into a trap
Only all the good parts.
Get that slut out of here.
And it's spelled with an L.
Last year Sup Forums hated steins gate.
What makes you say that Luka is a slut?
Being best dad of second best girl
I watched S:G twice, BOTH times I stopped watching it a few episodes in (around the time when they actually have the time machine built and the Dr. Pepper ads are replaced with Coke Zero)... It's one of those series that are very captivating for the first few episodes, but slowly falls off as it fails to live up to my expectations.
So it's basically Death Note 2, this time a "le epic time travel with nods to imageboard culture" version
If you really stopped at where you described, then that's more than a few episodes, that's like 2/3rds or 3/4ths through the series.
That also means that he found it boring once they switched from the setup to the payoff.
And I've got no clue what he's on about with the ebin softdrink jokes.
He's just shitposting.
And I've got no clue what he's on about with the ebin softdrink jokes.
You mean the blatant advertising?
Which is why they changed the name, right?
I was meaning the HILARIOUS comment about coke in that guy's post.
implying 5pb. is noticeable enough to possibly get licensing from Coca-Cola
Naotaka probably just likes it
No, the setup, particularly during the first few episodes, is more than likely the most interesting part of the series. You've actually made me realize that I probably subconsciously avoided watching the rest of the series because I knew the pay off of the time machine could never possibly meet the expectations that the exposition set. I didn't want to experience another shitty death note let down. I left the series before it went to shit, and let it be as it's better off as, that is: with an ambiguous ending.
Thx for enlightening me, fanboys :)
epic trolling bro :^)
We can all agree on Mountain View being the best right?
And don't forget the Ham Sandwich.
I'm clearly not trolling, it seems like your pathetic fanboy ass just can't help but accept the fact that your series - despite how much you praise it - isn't perfect.
We can all agree on Mountain View being the best right?
Gamma Okabe detected
stop ignoring Moeka
No man, I just like Takuru the most, well after Takumi.
Nah, Mountain View taste like shit.
not even him, but:
Funny thing is he's the one that married and had children, the "nonviable male".
And he wouldn't have been a threat to the romance arc even if he was more 'viable' due to how it's constructed.
Ruka is a cute girl, obviously
And there you go.
took 7 years but best girl finally arrived
That's a shame
but he;s a boy
tfw i'll be getting a free poster this weekend
yfw zakobot is translator
that moment when your VN goes full Terminator
This part was the fucking last straw. It hammered down the remaining part of the time-leap concept. Wasn't expecting this.
I'd expect him to post some Zero vid before, but looks like he hasn't post anything for quite some time.
Because he's working on translation.
He did say he was going to translate it after a year from PS release.
Thank god it won't happen
What's craziest is how she describes in detail the way she tortures and kills Okabe's future self. Chills down my spine man.
I like her latex suit
Can you guys imagine having a computer so weak the S:G VN lags tremendously? I want to play it so much but I am simply not able to. It takes a whole minute for the dialogue things to appear.
Fuck you for even joking about that.
Hello Windows 2000.
So if anyone played VLR does the original VN have some sort of Route tree to keep track of things?
I wanna get it but hear there is a shit tone of endings so a route tree in game would be neat.
You can get a Vita TV for $30 and the game for $40 and play it. Also, you can play S;G0 this year
Shit incase anyone don't get what i mean I'm asking about SG original VN.
holy shit user, are you trying to run it on an IBM 5100?
You unlock the secret routes if you play it on an IBM 5100.
What is this "IBM 5100" you speak of? I only know of the IBN 5100.
More like you get v& in real life and receive a bullet to the face
It's a computer from 2006 or so with a shitty internal GPU. Oh, and it runs XP.
It's a VN, why should it be so heavy on my computer?
I can't. I'm poor and I don't even have a TV (nor a monitor) with an HDMI port on which to connect that.
Hell, I haven't even seen those in my country, too.
It doesn't, but that doesn't really matter. Most of the endings are regardless of the 'route' system, the routes only really affect whether you can get the 'true' ending or not. Most ending sequences occur after making just one decision, and those are all for refusing to use your phone when prompted to. It's easy to get most endings in a single playthrough without using a guide.
You do need a guide if you want to get the true ending though, because of the way it's done through your responses to text messages. I don't really like how that's done desu, I like the concept about how it's based on the butterfly effect and all, but I don't think that it's executed in the best way.
I could run it on a 2007 prebuilt with a core 2 duo and a radeon 2400
Best secret route
raping best girl
should be prosecuted by law desu
He was in contact with Frau and I believe Takumi was also looking for an IBM 5100
He's not just in contact with Frau. Daru is the
one that saves the fucking day during R;N, he creates the program that stops Kimijima.
It's been ages since I read C;H,
didn't Takumi die in the end?
If you got the non-True Ending, yeah.
He survives in canon.
Laggy guy here, last time I tried playing the VN the translation was unofficial and the settings incomplete. Turns out the visuals were probably set at high-end back then.
Guess I'm gonna enjoy the game now...
Tu Tu Ru~~
Whose eyes are those?
How is she best?
It's a Japanese 360 port.
So it's bad programming on top of bad programming.
They even got to low the resolution.
Heard version 1.00 was a clusterfuck
Suzuha needs a father.
I'd feel that way too after dealing with Japanese business markets in an attempt to make something you know will be of objectively higher quality than what they'll bring to the table but being rejected.
Not his fault you kept picking the red trigger when he was around.
Okabe is basically like that British plumber who has no particularly fancy education and doesn't seem smart at first glance, but still manages to rig and build crazy shit in his garage.
Ever since Neptunia success in the west Jap developers have been shoving all of their popular shit on Steam.
You mean the blatant advertising?
Every Sci;Adv game advertises some drink. It's a running joke at this point.
RS is too good for this world.
What's gonna drop first?
S;G0 Anime or the ENG VN?
Watched S;G without knowledge of the VN, so I wanna try out the S;G0 VN
SG0 anime airs
All that merchandise that'll be released
God help my wallet.
what merch are you interested in?
Mainly figures and whatever catches my eye desu.
Before I was a good, law abiding citizen but recently I've been fast approaching that slippery slope of buying crap.
Only thing that's really been holding me back so far is my lack of funds, but I'm soon expecting that one glorious piece that just pushes me down that slope.
I literally just finished watching S;G, and the movie yesterday.
Do you guys recommend the VN, or any other VNs from the same developers?
Is S;G0 getting a PC release?
I presume PS4 emulation is going to be impossible for the reasonable future and the PS3 version isn't getting translated.
Play the VN, listen to the extra audio dramas, watch the OVAs,
Watch on youtube the darling spin off VN.
All of it. Give me cell phone cases, wallets, figures, more character ties, cell phone straps, coasters.
There's a fair amount of S;G 0 merchandise already available or in interim pre-order cycles on amiami.
I've read comments that if you've watched the Anime, then the VN only adds like 15% extra story, and you know all of the plots twists and stuff, like Suzuha and who FB is.
Is it really worth it?
Watch the OVA, download the Chaos;Head VN and play that. Most of Science;Adventure's VNs are unfortunately not available in English, but looking them up doesn't hurt. Chaos;Child has some announcement countdown going on.
Japanese only for now.
Or get a 20$ vita tv
If you thoroughly enjoyed Steins;Gate and want to experience more character interactions and greater depth for all characters, as well as some plot differences from the anime, then yes. Always remember that a VN and an anime are two different mediums that excel at different things.
Go read the chaos; head vn. If you're still interested after that you could wait a couple months and do the steins;gate vn. I read the sg vn about 9 months after I watched the anime and definitely enjoyed the experience.
*all their cheap and already translated popular shit
Yeah, a lot of the stuff is already sold out/orders closed.
Such is life.
Guys, this isn't supposed to be translated.
What is happening?
You should read the Twitter chain dummy.
Is only an example, not a project
Did you not see Steiner's twitter? He explained it a few posts after that.
It's gonna be translated?
I knew it.
I knew it.
I KNEW IT.
You can't tell me otherwise.
Yep, it's gonna be translated.
Would you kindly keep this pic in the meanwhile please?
I am the one who screenshotted it in the first place.
I already have enough Rikishi Seals.
Just keep watching them please.
Are you the one who wanted to riot at PQube' HQ?
I am always watching them, they make me kind of uneasy though.
They will kindly watch over you in return
I'm that one who printed and hanged one in his room, funny after all this time?
I wonder how they will handle the Seals in the anime.
I mean, if they don't want to show the murders, they have to compensate the guro with an extra portion of mystery. In the form of
SUPER STRONG RIKISHI SEALS. Well, these threads only have a small number of participants.
if they don't want to show the murders
Who said they won't?
They did show the staking in the C;H one so it cannot be scrapped.
Are the Seals that involved? Never played C;C
It was confirmed months ago that they're not showing the murders in the anime.
It's literally all about the seals.
They are everywhere.
They are watching everything.
They are watching everyone.
Those eyes are god's eyes.
The Rikishi Seals are god.
From the demo the 1st, 2nd and 3d don't seem that violent.
Anyway do you have a source?
Well, there is only one really violent and bloody, gory murder.
You know, the one.
I don't know how they will handle this.
It was an interview months ago, Steiner translated part of it and posted about it on twitter.
The first is pretty gory. He slices his arm up and eats part of his hand.
to use spoiler tags.
It happens within the first 5 minutes of the game, and it was one of the things advertised. It's not a huge deal, but yeah I understand and I'll use tags in future.
Kocchi Minna and Otomore-tan are common knowledge.
YOU'RE ALWAYS SUPER SPECIAL
How much tsundere is she?
3rd one is pretty fucking gruesome.
No idea how they're going to dodge depicting that one in an adaptation, though, MC directly witnessed
the corpse getting it's head twisted off
THAT'S WHY YOU ARE HERE WITH ME
What is wrong user?
Just wait. They'll cycle back in. They've been doing that for the past 6 months as 0 approaches.
that one yuzuki n dash doujin where okabe rapes her
This is surprisingly well made.
kys fucking pleb
Faris a misunderstood cute.
If you're hard drive is also from 2006, it's probably riddled with bad sectors, which is why your machine runs so slow. If you have some money set aside and can only upgrade one thing, I'd try that.
What the fuck
Only ending where he gets laid and it isn't even his waifu
