YMMV: Robotics;Notes
  • Broken Base: Both the VN and the anime seem to get this, the anime more so. Is it a decent installment/series that just couldn't match Steins;Gate, the most underwhelming of the Sci Adv series, or just an average title?
    • Base Breaker: Yashio Kaitou himself. He's either an underwhelming protagonist who lacks enough any motivation other than playing Kill-Ballad, or a loyal friend does what he can for the Robotics Club.
  • Complete Monster: Kou Kimijima, who wants to initiate a massive solar flare For Science!, even though that means a majority of humanity will be killed off in the process.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The first opening, Junjou Spectra.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Frau has a rather large fanbase.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Episode 11, which is focused heavily around the Earth being destroyed by a solar storm, aired on December 21, 2012.
  • Les Yay: Frau Kojirou calls Junna Daitoku a "seductive bitch" for smelling of a nice perfume, although it could also be a case of Stupid Sexy Flanders (She tells her to GTFO). She also does something like that during a photo session with Junna.
    • Or Airi, she's smitten by her, when she sees her in 3D.
  • The Scrappy: It only took Episode 9 for people to start disliking adult Misaki, seeing how callous she is towards Aki.
  • Tear Jerker: Doc and Jun's reconciliation in Episode 12.
    • Airi getting deleted in Episode 15.
    • Kai's ultimately futile attempt to save Mizuka in episode 16.
  • Tough Act to Follow: While not the only legitimate criticism, being billed as "the sequel to Steins;Gate" definitely put some high expectations on the series
