Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate exist in the same ("Science Adventure") universe, but on different world lines.
Chaos;Head happens in Shibuya and the events happen one year before Steins;Gate
Steins;Gate happens in Akihabara
Robotic;Notes happens in Tanegashima Island and the events happen nine years after Steins;Gate
The events of Chaos;Head are consistent ...
Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head, and Robotics;Notes all take place within the same universe but at different times.
There are also multiple Steins;Gate references in Chaos;Head, and there are multiple Steins;Gate references in Robotics;Notes.
These could be just for comedy purposes or they could be hinting at a relationship. Robotics;Notes also takes place in ...
This is indeed a meta-reference, that spans across the three games in the series.
The reference starts in Chaos;Head with Takuto, he spreads the phrase and is surprise how it catches on and becomes a meme.
One of the reasons is a serial killer that leaves behind this message at the scene of their crime.
I don't believe that there's an actual reference in ...
The best answer that I could make out myself for the use of the semi-colon in the names:
The semicolon in the names are used as a form of "pertaining to," however "not in possession of." Meaning--for example--"Steins" is related to "Gate" however, "Steins" is not in possession of "Gate." (This ...
The phrase "Whose eyes are those eyes?" appears in both Robotics;Notes and Chaos;Head. In the first episode of Robotics;Notes you can hear Airi say it. It's the same phrase Nishijo Takumi repeats almost every episode in Chaos;Head, because he feels like someone is observing him. It's also one of Kishimoto Ayase's songs in Chaos;Head.
Tanegashima island is prominently featured, most probably due to the fact that:
The headquarters of JAXA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, the Tanegashima Space Center spaceport is located at the southeastern end of the island.
About Tanegashima Space Center:
The Tanegashima Space Center (種子島宇宙センター Tanegashima Uchū Sentā) (TNSC) is a Japanese space ...
Because the point of Science Adventure series is not really about divergence ratio or the same worldline, but just due to the official genre/theme.
Back in 2008, when Chaos;Head was first released, the genre was officially given as "Delusional Science Adventure" (妄想科学ADV). At that time, there was no plan of making this into a series.
It was not ...
Oh no, I'm two years late to the discussion. While browsing on Steam, I came across STEINS;GATE and wondered why the semicolon was used in the title. I started reading reviews of the game but didn't find anything and so I Googled it and came to this page. From the reviews, STEINS;GATE sounds like an excellent visual novel, and so my comments here shouldn't ...
My two cents in four letters: PLOT.
The developer that messed the servers was a kill-ballad fan, and its like 60's batman villain all over: it has to have a trademark.
It also gives foreshadowing of
And also led to
So from all points, it made sense FROM THE PLOT point of view, to fix the robot riot that way.
Otherwise, like a real world explanation? ...
I believe the game was a defense against fixing the problem.
The guy who started it was one of the people who worked on the game with Frau, so he must have been betting that the person who was trying to gain access would not beat the hacked kill-ballad character, even if it was Frau herself.
(since she made the system she could give herself the rights ...
As explained by Reading Steiner in this question on ask.fm, this isn't actually covered in the anime, but in the VN, Kai knocked the HAARP Radar into the sweet spot for electromagnetic interference, creating them.
