Steins Gate

Hello. I’m Mishi! Today we are going to review the anime “STEINS;GATE”. This anime is originally from a game. There are many fans for this game. Do you want to know why? Then let’s take a look at this anime!

 

Story

 

Rintaro Okabe is the main character of this anime who is a leader of the future gadget lab at Akihabara, Tokyo. Every day he invented stuff with Itaru Hashida and a childhood friend named Mayuri Shiina. One day, Rintaro saw this girl named Kurisu Makise laying on the floor with blood all over her and he texted Itaru about this. Right after that, Rintaro started to feel dizzy and he noticed that something crashed into the place where he was at, his text’s date is from a week ago. Without being able to understand what is going on around him, he gets a clue. He noticed that he invented a device that can send a text to the past. As he made an experiment with this device, he gradually understood that texting to the past modified the present day. That means if he texted about someone, that person’s past would be modified, and that person can’t remember because the memory is fixed but somehow, Rintaro can keep that memory. Since Rintaro modified the past of Kurisu as texting, she was saved. Rintaro and members of his lab get a help from her, and they improve the device. The device can now send memories to past people. This is a great invention but the story starts to move the way nobody wants. To invent a time leap machine causes them to get in trouble. A secret organization SERN tries to find out about the device, Rintaro invented the device and caused the murder of his childhood friend Mayuri. With his device, Rintaro decides to save Mayuri, but no matter how many times he tries, he can’t change the ending of the present world. As everybody feels pain for this, he finally comes up with an idea that he has to go to a different world to save Mayuri. But in another world, he faces a different ending….. Which way will he choose, can he save both of them or he can’t save anyone at all? He sacrifices himself and is suffering the pain. He also feels so much pressure on him. Where will this story go?

My review

Steins gate

This anime has been popular because of the story. It is a typical time leap story but the way they composed each of the episodes are good. At first, you might think oh this is an otaku person goofing around, and hurt your eyes. Sometimes it is painful to watch how main characters act. But as the story goes, this typical type of Otaku character faces reality without hiding in a whole, naturally you will be drawn to this anime. You can get to enjoy Rintaro’s growth mentally and physically. Comical description to serious way, naturally it goes to that way and you will be wanting to watch the next episode. What I want to say is don’t stop watching until the end. Really at first story won’t move so at least until 12 or 13 episodes I want you to watch. Time leap story is usually confusing to understand. Especially for me, I really really get lost lol. This anime kind of made me confused but don’t worry! Like I said it is composed well so it describes what is going on for people like me! It is so kind! Arigato lol

This anime has been popular all over the world. Why don’t you watch this anime? I guarantee you will not waste your time!
