Plot

FUNimation has released the DVDs and Blu-Rays on February 18, 2014 (Part 1) and March 25, 2014 (Part 2)

Kai and Aki dream of building a giant fighting robot based on a super-popular anime, but that's going to be impossible if they don't get more members into their school's Robot Research Club. They'll take anyone they can talk—or force—into joining them, including an eccentric robotics champion with a secret identity and a l33t video-game designer who's spent one too many late nights online. Finally, their goal looks like it's within reach.

But when a sentient AI program tells Kai about mysterious documents hidden on the internet, things start to get strange for everyone. As the club members track down the secret messages, they realize that the information might be far bigger—and more dangerous—than they expected.

Welcome everyone! This is an update on the Robotics;Notes wiki project that Acura Max and I worked on.

Around the week of March 29, 2013, my teammate, Acura Max, and I finished the episode summaries. We both took turns on doing plot summaries: Acura Max did the even episodes while I did the odd episodes. The main struggle in the wiki project was time because we're busy with school, work, and family. On top of that, we had taken a task to encourage discussion of Robotics;Notes through the Robotics;Notes Discussion and informing the community any Robotics;Notes news.

For character wiki pages, we manage to fill the recurring characters.

Character Updates

Welcome to the Robotics;Notes Roundtable discussion!

Originally, the roundtable discussion included Acura Max, Takashichea, and Katmic, but due to time zone mistake, only Acura Max and Takashichea participated. I included Katmic's question at the end. Acura Max is the one who came up with the rest of the questions. In addition to Robotics;Notes, we also talked a bit about Psycho Pass.

Note: Any corrections are in brackets that wasn't in the original discussion.

Acura_Max: Hey!

Taka: Yo!

Acura_Max: Ready to do some discussing?

Taka: Yeah, I just finished episode 22.

Acura_Max: So how did you feel about it?

Taka: It was an awesome episode. It had the most action which is suitable for the final episode.

Acura_Max: I agree. It was the most action packed. I just wish it didn't leave so many loose threads. Remember how Subaru's dad hated robots? We never find out why.

Taka: I never thought about Subaru's dad. It slipped my mind. Though, Misaki and Mizuka's past wasn't clear.

1. Why did you try Robotics;Notes?

Acura_Max: I saw Steins;Gate, and I thought it would be cool to see this one. I was hoping like many that it was going to be more like Steins;Gate, and it was in some ways. While it did have some of the elements that Steins;Gate had (ex. random person who you didn't think knew kung fu knew kung fu) I don't think it was as good.

Why did Kou Kimijima change?
Why did Kou Kimijima change?

Taka: At first, I was interested by the trailer when I saw it. I was curious why Akiho in the trailer was so hopped on candy. Also, I thought the premise was like Robot Wars on Tech TV or Megas XLR. High school kids building a robot to kick other robots' butt. Oh, [I forgot to mentioned it] was Acura Max who got me into it in the end.

Acura_Max: So what did you think about it?

Taka: Well, I had the wrong expectations for the show. I expected action, but I got this slice of life element with a bit drama. It was slow and a bit boring at first. I muscled through it in hopes of it getting better.

Acura_Max: Yeah, pacing was a problem with the show. The show is pretty odd with its pacing. At the beginning, I felt that it was too slow. Towards the end, it felt like they were rushing with the story. I got the feeling that they wanted to put out more story, but just didn't have the time. Because of that there were a couple loose threads. For example, as mentioned before, why did Subaru's dad hate robots? Why did Kimijima change and how did he change? We heard Airi tell us that he was different from before, but that was all we got. We also don't know why the Monopole fell from the sky. Without an explanation for it. It felt more like a plot device.

Why did Subaru's father hated robots?
Why did Subaru's father hated robots?

Taka: You always had an eye for these minor flaws. I haven't play the visual novel game, but I have seen some of it on Youtube. Though, I haven't seen enough to judge if the anime was cutting out details from the game.

Acura_Max: I thought Subaru's backstory was pretty important, They kept mentioning it, but nothing came of it

So if you could improve the series, what would you change about it?

Taka: Since a lot of folks dropped it from the beginning, Robotics;Notes could have improved its pacing. Make us crave the answers behind the conspiracy.

Acura_Max: Yeah I think it needed a hook.

Taka: Not to get this off topic, did they explain Frau's past well?

Acura_Max: They did actually. Her mother was killed after she escaped her brainwashing. After that Frau turned into a shut in in order to make kill ballad so she could remember her mother

Kaito can be frustrating
Kaito can be frustrating

Taka: Man, I can't remember much. I need to rewatch the episodes for Misaki's past if I'm going to work on her origin. Anyways, how was Kaito's character? I noticed some fans hated Kaito. That was one of the main issues of Robotics;notes.

Acura_Max: Yeah, he's kind of a jerk.

Taka: You pointed out that he is a foil to Akiho who is enthusiastic and hardworking while Kaito is just lazy.

Acura_Max: Yeah, his actions do reflect his character. So with the majority of the series' problem said, what did you like about it?

Taka: Even though Kaito was boring to watch, he grew up and became the hero. For Akiho, she was at the top of her game, but she falls down into despair once Misaki breaks her spirit. It was an interesting parallelism element that they have. Let's see one thing that surprised me was Mizuka Irei's death. I was on the edge of my seat and wanted Kaito to save her. The series gets dark. It's nice, drastic change from the beginning.

Acura_Max: I agree. They do it pretty well, and it was a nice shift in the story. I also really liked some of the mech designs. The Gunvarrel and the Sumeragi's final form looked really cool.

Taka: We finally had a good robot battle.

Acura_Max: I thought the final battle were pretty good. They really did a good job building for the last battle in the episodes.

Taka: It was interesting how a slow robot Gunvarrel can beat up Sumeragi who is fast like a ninja armed with a blade. Kaito's spasm help him slowed his perception. Speaking of which, did they explain why Sea Anemone incident occurred? Or is it my bad memory?

Acura_Max: They told us that Kimijima was performing an experiment on the ship, but he was interrupted by Misaki. It was in that moment that Kimijima turned himself into an AI.

Taka: Jesus lord, I must have been zoning out.

So did you have a favorite episode? What was your least favorite?

Subaru - the cosplay king
Subaru - the cosplay king

Taka: I don't really have a least favorite episode. Maybe episode 5. It was the least exciting one. My favorite episode was 11 because things really flipped. The conspiracy with the last episode and how it was related to the Kimijima reports was revealed.

Acura_Max: Yeah I don't remember hating an episode outright. My favorite episodes were the ones where they focused on one individual character. I thought they were well done. Out of those episodes, I thought the best one was the one where we learned about Frau's backstory.

Taka: Yeah, Frau and Junna's stories were awesome. It explains why Junna was so hesitant in joining Akiho's club. We covered all of your question except the last one. We covered my questions except for audience and character.

Acura_Max: Then let's start with character and end with audience. Out of all the characters, I would say my favorite would be

Taka: I can't start with Frau because she's too popular. Let me do Subaru. Subaru is a smart guy who has a cosplay fetish. It's too bad that we won't get to see it much.

Acura_Max: It's too bad that we don't get to see him much. He was mostly there to talk sense into Akiho when she wanted to do something crazy with the robot

Taka: I loved that part as well as when Frau and Junna think of him in crazy scenarios such running in the savannah naked with Kaito.

Frau stealing Akiho's man
Frau stealing Akiho's man

Acura_Max: That sure was wacky. If remember correctly from Katmic's review, Frau was also his favorite character, and I agree with him. Out of all the characters, Frau was the funniest.

Taka: Frau kept the show entertaining with her loli and yaoi obsession. I thought the show was going to be Kaito x Frau. I loved the look on Akiho's face in that one scene.

Acura_Max: Here's a link to that specific scene for those who don't know what we're talking about

Taka: Least favorite character was Kaito for me. He was not that interesting at all until the later half of the series. I was rooting for at the end.

Acura_Max: I did think he was the least interesting because this series was based on a game. Usually the main protagnist of a video game lacks character so the person can immerse themselves.

Taka: Yeah, I agree with you. He's like Link in first person view.

So what audience would you recommend this series for and what are your final thoughts?

Taka: Like our beginner guide that we wrote together, everyone 10 and up just like the ESRB ratings for video game. The reason is that show does not have graphic violence, naughty fan service, or anything harmful. It's like Majora's Mask with its subtle darkness. Maybe I shouldn't put that video game reference. Robotics;Notes didn't have subtle dark undertone.

The gap between Steins;Gate and Robotics;Notes
The gap between Steins;Gate and Robotics;Notes

Acura_Max: At first I thought it was a show that I could recommend to steins;gate fans, but now I'm not so sure. Most people who have seen Steins;Gate were pretty disappointed with the show. To some degree I was too. Although I still think it was pretty good despite its flaws. It was funny, had some good character moments and the series ended pretty songly even if it did leave some things unexplained So after your experiences with Robotics;Notes are you going to try diving into hard sci-fi after you've have seen a light sci-fi.

Taka: I think the reason why Steins;Gate folks are disappointed because it operated differently from Robotics;Notes. Like we said earlier in our discussions, Steins;Gate hooked you in with something compelling and makes want to find out the truth. While Robotics;Notes builds up, it's a test of patience. Regarding your question, I'm going to finish Steins;Gate that you, Aleasha, and I watched during winter break. We left on episode 2. I haven't had much Sci-Fi, and I believe your recommendation will get me started.

Acura_Max: If there was a time to get into sci-fi. Now seems like a good time. There are alot of interesting sci-fi anime coming out in the spring season and this season we had Psycho Pass, which had ended around the same time as Robotics;Notes

Taka: My other sci-fi show was Guilty Crown, and I think that was my first if I exclude Gundam series. I'll get started on Psycho Pass as well.

Trying Psycho-Pass next time
Trying Psycho-Pass next time

Acura_Max: I should warn you that the first few episodes have a bit of exposition in them, but the series really picks up at around episode 8-12. However, I think that it's one of the best anime this anime and I thought it was robbed when it didn't win an award. [Referring to Psycho-Pass] In closing, I would say that they should not come into this series expecting another Steins;Gate like many Steins;Gate fans did.

Taka: Robotics;Notes is for folks who haven't tried a lot of sci-fi. It may not be the best one to start off, but it's a short and a bit slow, slice of life show that pays off near the middle of the series.

Katmic:

With all those unexplained elements, is Robotic Notes even over because we could be seeing a second season later on.

Taka: The ending shows a rocket heading into space. [I think Robotics;Notes might have a chance of doing another season.]

Acura_Max: I really doubt that a second season will happen since Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate didn't get a sequel. The only reason why Steins;Gate is getting a movie is because it is popular and Robotics;Notes really does not have the same level of popularity.

It is funny that robotic notes is rated as a sci-fi, romance thriller, but to me it is more of a slice of life kind of series. I can’t say that is a turn off, though I haven’t watched that many slice of life series in my life, so I might not really know what I am talking about

THE PLOT:>

Kaito and Akiho are members of the robotics club at Chuuoutanegashima High School, in the year 2019, when robotic technology has evolved to advanced levels.

Akiho is the fiery energetic, easily excitable president of the robotics club, at a point in time where the club is on its last legs. Akiho’s love of robotics is only matched by her obsession for the anime series Gunvarrel, that chronicles the life of heroes piloting the legendary mecha Gunvarrel in their efforts to protect man kind.

It is one of Akiho’s idiosyncrasies to scream and shout Gunvarrel catch phrases and attacks at times of high excitement and exhilaration. Ever since the robotics club was founded, by Akiho’s sister Misa, it has confined itself to low level projects, revolving around constructing little foot sized robots to execute average tasks and eve take part in battle tournaments, nothing new in a world of highly advanced robotics and AI technology.

But Akiho has an ambition. a great goal, to fulfill Misa’s childhood dream in founding the robotics club years ago when she was at high school, to construct a real life model of the Gunvarrel robot from the series; in other words, a real life, 20 meter tall, pilotable mecha.

This is a task easier said than done as the robotics club is barely operational. With only two members, kaito barely participating and only on Akiho’s pleading, Akiho hasn’t been able to secure funding for the robotics club from the school for the past several years,and in front of her eyes, her sisters long standing project is in danger of staling.

But Akiho isn’t ready to throw in the towel. Along with kaito, subaru, juuna and even Frau, Akiho is determined to see her and her sister’s dream fulfilled. Along the way, we discover a little more about the senomiya (Akiho and Misa) family and the events of the past that endowed/cursed kaito and Akiho with their strange ailments.

Several mysteries litter the series. Frau, the enigmatic creator of the popular combat game that fills Kaito’s waking days and nights, has come to the island to find answers to the events surrounding her mom’s death and their link to the long lost and rumored final episode of the Gunvarrel series that never aired.

Then there is kaito’s discovery of the Airu AI interface, holding great secrets regarding the mysterious Kijima Kou and his reports regarding the aurora that has been cast over Japan’s skies for the past seven years, the council of 300 and the possible apocalyptic future the world may be facing and which the government might be hiding.

IN the midst of all that is the relationship between Misa and Akiho, and Misa and Kaito, and the events that separated them so many years ago, and which might be connected to Misa’s new job at exoskeleton and the work she and her boss might be working on.

THE REVIEW:>

I really don’t see the thriller elements in robotic notes, or rather while they are there, they are less than prominent, so much so that they are no more than background noise.

Robotic notes is for the most part normal life with a touch of Sci-Fi. The general theme of the show can be described as ‘What would happen if you tried to build a giant robot?"’ and that is for all intent and purpose what it was all about.

Akiho wants to build a giant robot but even with all the plans laid out, and the robotic club members’ relatively impressive engineering skills, it isn’t as easy as they hoped it to be.

Akiho faces difficulties and challenges, all of which she meets with gusto and energy, unwilling to accept defeat no matter the barriers involved. All those around her are dragged into her efforts to fulfill her sister’s dreams, and will usually suffer for it, especially her father, head of a successful aeronautics company, that will struggle to say no to her daughter's request for manpower and technology, and will usually resort to calling her mother, who will chastise Akiho for trying to take advantage of her poor father.

Underneath her energy is a girl that is haunted by her obsession to meet and even surpass her sister’s expectations of her.

I find kaito somewhat annoying for a primary character. He is completely…lethargic in the manner in which he tackles life. He shows absolutely no interest in anything at all. I want my protagonist to seek out the answers and search for truths; Kaito will find intriguing mysteries, and he will choose to ignore them.

Basically we the audience see an interesting path, we want to go down it; but Kaito won’t go down it, and instead chooses to retreat. it is somewhat infuriating; he just doesn’t want to know.

He will break this mold on occasion. Kaito is only in the robotics club because Misa, Akiho’s sister, assigned him to take care of her when she left for Tokyo. On occasion, he will go above and beyond for Akiho, to see the barriers facing her in building the mech destroyed, but never really letting her know.

In a way Kaito is intriguing, in that he will never take the effort to help anyone unless they beat him in Kill ballad, probably in memory of the days and nights he and Misa spent gaming, during which she would trounce him. Kaito’s principle gets him out of work because he is simply too good a player.

kaito takes an ambivalent approach to the Kijima Kou reports, reporting the end of the world; he doesn’t really want to know most times, but once in a while he will take a distinct interest, usually when the reports affect a certain event in the life of his acquaintances .

This series is meant to be a Sci-Fi thriller, but spends more time scattering seeds of mystery regarding murders, the future, conspiracies and the like rather than actually answering them.

IN other words, we get hints but never anything really concrete to follow. Now whether that changes beyond the 11 episodes I have watched remains to be seen. But if it wasn’t for the interesting characters, plots and drama, I would be put off by this show, which describes its self as one thing, but never really does what it set out to do.

Granted the mysteries can be intriguing, when first hinted at, but after a while I cease to care, especially the business with Misa, because the series takes too long to deal with things. It keeps playing with but never gets down to peeling away the layers of its concepts and revealing the core of the story.

None the less it is a good show, though if the side stories of the robotics club lose their flavor, the show will definitely start to suck.

I will the say that the best character of the show hands down and one of the reasons I watched it through is Frau Koujiro. She is crazy as she is kooky with her ridiculous out bursts and nutty rants. I could watch her all day, especially her interactions with Juuna, the timid, anxious karate student, and kaito with his straight forward responses to her madness.

Frau is an absolute joy to watch.

VERDICT—I definitely recommend this show, for the time being, for any otaku of any interests. It is fun as it is poignant in its exploration of the dramatic results advanced technology can have on humanity.

RATING:> 4/5, though this might change as the series progresses.

Robotic notes is a Japanese visual novel developed and published by 5pb, a Japanese video game manufacturer and record label for video game and anime music; known notably for games like Chaos;head and Steins;gate.

The anime has been licensed by Funimation in North America, has 22 episodes and is currently on going.

Robotic;Notes (Newtype)
Robotic;Notes (Newtype)

Hello Robotics;Notes fans!

For fans new to the series, here's a synopsis:

In 2019, Kaito Yashio and Akiho Senomiya are the sole members of the Robotics Club at Central Tanegashima High School in Kyushu, Japan. Akiho is an energetic positive-thinking girl who yearns to complete the ongoing project of the club: building a functional replica of Gunvarrel, the main robot of a once popular TV series. She will have the assistance of many people, but specially of her childhood friend Kaito, one of the top players of a well-known game called Kill-Ballad.

Trailers

Here are some promo trailers.

IOS Game

Here's an article on a new IOS app for the iTunes store:

An official Robotics;Notes iOS app has been released on the iTunes app store, just in time for the anime series’ debut on Fuji TV’s “Noitamina” late-night anime timeslot this Friday in Japan (at 1:15AM, or 25:15 hours on Thursday night)

The app’s key feature is an AR camera that lets users take pictures with the heroine in Robotics;Notes, Akiho Senomiya. You can do this through two methods, depending on if the AR camera is set to “Portrait Mode” or “Marker Mode”.

Portrait Mode works like most other AR apps out there: Akiho will appear on-screen, plastered upon a video feed of your actual surroundings as picked up by your iPhone’s camera, and you can adjust Akiho’s pose or expression before taking the shot. More poses and expressions can be added via a “shop” menu from November onwards.

Marker Mode, on the other hand, is more like a QR code scanner. That is, when the iPhone camera picks up a certain image – such as a particular poster illustration found at shop fronts or on the Robotics;Notes official website - a 3D character will appear on the touchscreen.

Said 3D character’s position is tied to the AR marker (the shop poster or an online image), so you’ll be able to look at the character model from different angles and sides by physically moving your iPhone around.

Outside of the AR features, the Robotics;Notes app will also have a page for news and announcements published on the series’ official website, a “shop” menu where you can download wallpapers and addition AR camera poses and expressions (paid content), and a “tips” page that will be refreshed every week, prior to the airing of a new episode, containing explanations for new lingo or terms that will be used in the upcoming episode.

In other words, this nifty feature will serve to replicate the visual novel experience for anime viewers somewhat. In visual novels, “tips” are often trivial explanations about specific items that writers add in to give players a better understanding of the fictional universe (but are otherwise not required to understand the plot).

Future updates planned for the app include a group-chat functionality, more AR features related to Robotics;Notes merchandise (we’re not too sure what this refers to; could just be more AR markers for users to scan), and the ability to access “special contents”.

“TV animation 「ROBOTICS;NOTES」 official application” is free to download, and available now on the Japanese iTunes app store. Supports iPhone and iPad models running iOS 4.3 and up. iPod Touch compatibility will be added at a later date.

Robotics;Notes Merchandising

In the merchandise business, we got nendoroid figures for Akiho and Frau.

I posted a Nendoroid Compilation Thread for all new nendoroids in the market. Please visit that thread as well.

Robotics;Notes Food

On Crunchyroll's article, Psycho Pass and Robotics;Notes did a debut in advertising food.

Speaking of Skal, Acura Max and I did a article on if Skal is the new product placement: Will Skal be Robotic;Notes's new Product Placement?

Skal is much healthier than Dr. Pepper (Steins;Gates). We believe Robotics;Notes is trending on the healthy end.

Robotics;Notes Manga

Robotics;Notes - Revival Legacy follows Frau Koujirou. The artist is Tatsuya Shihira.
