Trivia

The story references and builds upon the real "John Titor case" from the turn of the century. A mysterious Internet persona who posted on Internet message boards claiming to be a time traveler from the future. The CERN research institute and the IBM-5100 computer (dubbed SERN and IBN-5100 respectively) are also both real. See more »

Goofs

Okabe usually doesn't have shoes on in the lab, yet when he walks around you hear the sound of shoes stepping on the floor. A strange goof for such a well-made anime. See more »

A gripping story... with a slow start
25 July 2012 | by thrust_13See all my reviews

It's been some time since I've seen an anime that I enjoyed so much. Especially when I thought I was done with the genre because of the repeating themes and motifs.

Steins;Gate is a cleverly written anime revolving around Okabe Rintarou aka the self proclaimed mad scientist Hououin Kyouma and his meddling with time. I can't tell more without giving the best part of the story away.

I started watching the show after seeing that it had favorable reviews and I must admit that the beginning is kind of slow. The spark that ignites the main conflict only shows up later, which is a rather peculiar structural property of the plot. However, I will say this: if you're somewhat appalled by fan-service characters, overly dramatized reactions, childish characters and anime stereotypes, wait patiently because a beautiful story is about to unfold and the necessary plot preparations must be done. For this story, a careful setting of the stage is very important.

What I enjoyed most was the chemistry between the two protagonists and the way these character develop. Also, the execution of the time travel story was well done, time travel being a genre that many have failed to illustrate properly.

And now, the bad parts. The pace of the show is rather irregular with a slow start and a somewhat abruptly orchestrated (yet satisfying) finish and many of the characters lack depth; they just fill a designated role. Also, science part behind the time travel gadget did not really convince me.

I would rate this show with an 8 but in the end, I really enjoyed the characters and the interactions between them. Also, the big WTF moment was really... WTF. That's why I'll be a bit subjective and add an extra point. I would be more specific on the extra point but I do not want to spoil you.

I really hope that I will have the opportunity to watch more anime of this quality. Truly, a job well done.
