Anime: Steins;Gate
Episodes: 24 + 1 OVA + 1 Movie
Studio: White Fox
Aired: Apr 6, 2011 to Sep 14, 2011
Genres: Sci-Fi, Thriller
Just finished an Amazing anime series called Steins;Gate.

I didn’t watch it on 2011 since I was being skeptical about the theme and concept, also the first 2 episodes were really slow and could be somewhat boring since there are terms which are very hard to understand(But I guess it was part of the overall story)

This short anime is the single best time travel story ever created. It has amazing characters and well thought out time travel mechanics. I really like it because of the similar concept of one of my favorite movie “The Butterfly Effect” but instead using a so called time machine.

It isn’t some crazy time travel story where they go to the future or the past as they please, it is all about some small scale time travel, where they only go back two days or so at a time. It emphasizes small actions and how they impact everything through the butterfly effect. It shows you how every action you take matters and can change the entire world.

This show is the perfect blend of comedy, sci-fi, thriller, tragedy, romance, drama, and mystery. Few shows/movies have caused me to live my life differently, and this is one of them. You will never forget the mad scientist Okabe and the other members of the Future Gadget Laboratory.

“DEFINITELY RECOMMEND”

I give it an overall score of 9.5/10.0 

Watch it. El Psy Congroo~
