All you need to know is that Notes of a Robotic Nature is created by the same people that made Steins;Gate well the visual novel is. Steins;Gate was animated by White Fox whilst Automated;Markings is animated by Production IG. No offence to White Fox you’ve created a few great anime but Production IG is one of the top tier studios having created
Guilty;Crown Ghost;In;The;Shell and more recently Kuroko’s;Basketball. So you can see why we should all be excited.
The plot to Robotic;Notes is high school students in a club…… Those dots are me screaming at the top of my lungs in excitement for an original setting. But in all honesty the school club is a bit different because it’s set in 2019 and it’s about robots and not harems. Well okay I suspect the main two or three girls will all be romantic love interests at some point but since it’s written by 5PB then I suspect the girls will take the back seat in favor of giant robots much like the girls and the trap in Steins;Gate stood aside for the progression of time travel.
Obviously since this is a 5PB story there is a world domination plot, well this time it’s a conspiracy but it’s the whole man vs organisation situation all over again so that should be interesting to see play out even if it does split the group and slow production on their giant robot. You’d think building a giant robot would be a priority if you were involved in a conspiracy and hopefully the characters realize that.
There is obviously people who have played the visual novel this time around similar to how people will have played Little Busters. But i’m going to risk spoilers and review Robotic;Notes on a weekly basis episode by episode. I have no idea how the story will pan out but I’m looking forward to the journey.
