Welcome to the Robotics;Notes Mini-Guide! In this guide, we will show you why you should try Robotics;Notes.

The series can be streamed on Hulu.com and new episodes are be available every Friday until the series finale.

Plot

Setting: Tanegashima, Japan (2019)

It's about a school club called the Robotic Research Club that has a passion for robots. The club consists of two members named Akihoand Kaito, who have to save the club from being disbanded by winning the Robo-1 competition to prove that their club is worth keeping. As the club leader, Akiho has a dream of creating a giant robot modeled after her favorite anime show, Gunvarrel. Meanwhile, Kaito is searching for the Kimijima Reports with an A.I. named Airi to uncover the conspiracies and myths surrounding Gunvarrel's final episode and mysterious Committee of 300.

Characters

Here are the Robotics Research Club members plus one little cute A.I.

Why Should You Watch It?

Appropriate audience for this anime series is everyone 10 and up. There is little blood and violence, but the characters do make suggestive comments.

For the most part, the anime has a slice of comedy feel with some supernatural elements. Those who liked the conspiracy elements from Steins;Gates will be happy to know that they will be appearing in this series. These elements are sprinkled throughout the first few episodes, but become more prevalent after episode 11.

The show is a must watch for Sci-Fi and mech lovers as well as for fans who have watch Steins;Gates or Chaos;Head. Those who familiar with the Mecha genre will easily pick up on the references that the show throws out. Though you don't need to know anything about the Mecha genre or Steins;Gate and Chaos:head to enjoy this series. It has great comedic pieces and good story if you like the slice of genre. If you are familiar with Steins;Gate or Chaos;Head, you will also pick up on the references that the series dishes out.

Awesome guide, Acura Max!

If you're a new fan to the sci-fi series, you can start with this one. Sure, it doesn't have space exploration, clones, big mechs, or a virtual reality element. This series is friendly and won't leave you lost like what Steins;Gates did to me.
