Steins;Gate Fuka Ryouiki no Deja vu

I almost forgot about this movie coming out. So this movie is set after the events of the original series on the Steins Gate world line that Okabe Rintarou is able to reach. The main point of contention in the movie is that the effects of the Reading Steiner have forced Okabe to lose grip on reality and he eventually disappears from the world line. Makise Kurisu ends up taking the main character role to save him. Honestly, I had no real problem with how the original series ended, so I had trouble accepting the story of this movie. It seemed like it was just rocking the boat.

For one, I thought the whole idea of phasing between two world lines was a bit flimsy and wasn't really fleshed out well. Also, Kurisu didn't seem as interesting as a main character as the mad scientist Hououin Kyouma (despite her best efforts...even the characters in the movie call her out on it). It really pained me to watch Okabe going around with such a defeated attitude as opposed to his normal zaniness. Honestly, I think the movie was interesting to watch, but didn't really add anything to the series. It's just another story, I guess.
