OH SHIT, I totally missed that this show finally began airing!!! The visual novel was SO GOOD. REALLY GOOD. SQUEE GOOD.

If you at all enjoy a good time travel story, check out the original series. Steins;Gate 0 isn't a prequel nor sequel -- it delves into all the details of a timeline that was crucial to the end of the original series. And it's SO DAMN GOOD.

"One of the Memphis statues was dedicated to Jefferson Davis, the president of pro-slavery Confederacy in the US Civil War of 1861-65. The second statue honoured Nathan Bedford Forrest, a slave trader, Confederate general and a leader in the Ku Klux Klan white supremacist group."

Fuck the GOP.
