Steins;Gate (On netflix)
The protagonist kind of starts as a self-mocking jerk, believing in a conspiracy that the organization or CERN would establish an authoritarian world order, and him being the destroyer of that order.

This was weird all along. Some fighting, pretty weird humour and often over-the-top. It got pretty good rating, but wasn't my cup of tea. Somehow some kind of highschool musical drama I suppose?
The visuals have been stunning, maybe too stunning. I didn't feel much anticipation and excitement for the next episodes, and there is barely tension, overall pretty lighthearted.
Was pretty lackluster, and I don't get the seemingly high ratings: The animations were often dull and noticeable slow, often stay at the same scenes for too long. There were in theory interesting character backgrounds, but they aren't really fleshed out at all. Why create an episode about different skills of each and how they are recruited, when it is simply not important to the plot at all and not coming up again?
The protagonist? What's that? A 14yo boy-brat, for real?

I felt that at some times there was a huge backlog when people were talking, think like open or closing mouths, slowly moving faces, such stuff, or doing things, were a larger time no
