Unboxing [US]: Robotics;Notes - Part 2 (BD/DVD)

It's been 2 years since I picked up the first half of this series. Now I finally bought it after Robert's Anime Corner Store put the item on a clearance sale for $20, due to the upcoming S.A.V.E. release.

Here's a look at the second half of the series.

Robotics;Notes is the third instalment in the Science Adventure series that includes Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate and just recently Chaos;Child. Knowledge of other instalments is not needed but does throw in references every now and then. This instalment focuses on robotics and has a bit of a lighter tone compared to the others. I saw the first half dubbed and I thought the show was alright, but I hear the second half is where it kind of derails for the rest of the story.

This set covers the second half of the series with episodes 12-22 in English & Japanese (with English subtitles). The subtitles are locked which was unusual at the time (nowadays it's a bit more common).

Kaito, Akiho, and the rest of the Robot Research Club have finally completed their dream of building a giant robot, only to discover they've still got a ton of work to do.

A robot uprising wreaks havoc in Tokyo, a network-based AI crosses over into the real world, and the Kimijima reports foretell of an impending apocalypse.
