5pb have announced the development of the next game in their sci-fi adventure series, indicated by a Famitsu.com report. The game will reportedly take place in Shibuya, similar to Chaos;Head. No further details on this new title are available yet. Additionally, 5pb also released a trailer for the upcoming Robotics;Notes anime, which you can watch below:



The Robotics;Notes anime will be aired in Japan this October.

    Hoping that Robotics;Notes will be as good (or even half as good) as Stein;Gate was, though from the trailer, its off to a pretty good start :).  Need to try and watch Chaos;Head too, but I’ve heard that wasn’t too great.

    • Darkrise

      Saying the Chaos;Head anime wasn’t too great is a big understatement. It was a crime. It was so low budget and horribly adapted, I did not feel the tension i felt from the VN or even half the emotions I felt for the story in the VN.

      • Anime10121

         Wow, really that bad huh?  Maybe just skipping it entirely would be a wiser decision?

        • Aw Heng Wang Travis

           Well, the original story is very good. The anime didn’t do justice to the original novel.
          So, I would suggest that you play the original, and it’s translated. You just need to find it.

          • Anime10121

             Cool! Definitely will try and find the VN and give that a go then.  All I’ve heard about was the anime, so its good to know the VN is much better :)

  • The Anime studio nailed the character designs and the look of the game including environments perfectly. Gonna keep an eye on this one.

  • Looking forward to it even more now.

    Keeping the same writer as steins;gate doesnt give me much confidence in th execution of the ending, hopefully many liberties are taken to make it actually good and enjoyable.

    Good music and I have faith in Production IG.

    I’m on Ch. 5 now (out of 12 I think), loving Robotics;Notes so far.  Usually I like anime shown in the Noitamina time slot, like Honey & Clover and Nodame Cantabile, some of my favs.  If they’re doing 24-26 eps like Steins;Gate and not 12-13 eps like Chaos;Head, I’m sure the anime would turn out fine.  I still have ways to go till the ending, but really like the chars, story, setting, and the weird stuffs going on.. good soundtrack and another good science adventure..  I love Frau-bou, a female hentai like Daru :)

    I loved Steins;Gate, wanna go back to finish Chaos;Head once I’m done w/ R;N (hopefully would beat it before Oct),.. but there’s Time Travelers and Tokuhou too.. Instant Brain and Dunamis15 backlog :(..

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      I think they did say this will last fall and winter, so definitely more than 20 episodes.

      • Aoshi00

        Yeah, I think I read that too.  If so, it should be plenty of time for a good adaptation like the Steins;Gate anime.  There are 12 long VN chapters, there’s no way to make 1 VN chapter into 1 TV episode w/o omitting a lot of contents like Chaos;Head.  Anyway, playing R;N bit by bit whenever I can, really like the cast and story so far, I have high hopes for the anime now :)

    Looks like yet another masterpiece by 5pb. I really want to start with the VN, but unfortunately, I rely on fan translations, and we all know how long those can take. But watching the anime first will demotivate me to read the VN, just like what happened to me with Steins;Gate. Ahh, decisions, decisions~

    •  I’m just gonna watch the anime, there’s no guarantee that the game will get fan translation anyway…

      • neetyneety

        Ohh, good point there. Not sure I could restrain myself long enough to wait for one anyway. If only they would announce an official one then I’d be good.

  • Xapth

    Now I’ve got this anime along with S3 of Bakuman to look forward to in October.
    I wonder if Itou Kanako will perform the anime OP, or if it’ll be Zwei?

    As for the next title, I have a predilection towards anime/games based in a city, so I’m probably going to love it regardless. I personally think it’s going to be a completely new title rather than something related to Chaos;Head, although maybe it will take place in the same world like how Robotic;Notes takes place in the Steins;Gate timeline.

  • Well I hope the adaptation turn out good cuz I’m pretty interested in it. 
    I hope IG learned ithe lesson frm GC…… and Madhouse C;H. And let hope tht noitaminA gv it >12 ep….. 
    Oh, and prepared to get annoyed by the Kaito, heroine and glasses cuz I am, at 1st. Kaito kinda become not so annoying later though (manga so far) but 4 heroine and glasses….. :( One is annoyingly genki and another is a JERK. And Airi still being mysterious as usual. Sono me, dare no me any1?

    • Aoshi00

      Subaru’s a real jerk at first, but u would get to like them more once u know more about their background. I like them being passionate about their hobbies and dreams. Junna the karate girl and Frau the female Daru are really cute :)

      • Female Daru!? ^.^ Will she make a ton of innuendo? Or she the reference girl??

        • Aoshi00

          Frau is like a hentai shut-in who’s into BL doujin, not very good at face to face interaction. She uses funny net slang a lot, but it seems to be outdated since the game takes place in 2019. I love it when she says things like “No problem, everything’s fine” (from El Shaddai, its like a meme). Don’t wanna spoil too much, but she’s integral to the Robo Club. Like Feyris, she has a real name too :)

          I think Akiho is cute too, especially when she quotes the Red Comet :) the chars are all cute in their diff ways. Kai’s a bit of a slacker gamer but he always got Aki’s back even though he doesn’t show it. You’ll see more of Airi and Geji-nee later, also sister Braun :)

    • Eh, did manga already came out?
      Anyway, the only one interesting hero right now is Airi, that “eyes” phrase in demo decided it :3

      • Yessu, but its in chinese though. 
        Btw, Is the demo subbed??

        IMO, Karate girl>Main heroine 4 me so far. And the only MC tht not annoying IMO is Okabe……. Takumi and Kaito got too much Otaku Pride….. At least Okabe made it amusing to watch.

        • Nah, its not.
          I can try to sub it, if someone will find video for me (got no recording device and i dont even know how to get video from PS3), but it will take a lot of time. I suggest you just wait for 1st two episodes for anime: they will cover it

  • Something to look out for in October!
