Steins;Gate is breathtaking. The dialogue is superb, the time-traveling is fascinating, and the character development is nonpareil. I dived into this show expecting an eerie experience – the kind of experience that warps your sense of temporal continuity. But soon I was realized that was only the tip of the iceberg. I was completely caught off guard by the brilliant dialogue –I highly recommend it to animé fans. This show revels in hilarious meta-commentary, appealing to those familiar with the animé world. Furthermore, the character development is organic, funny, and interesting. Thus, by the time its main plot and drama emerged, I was fully immersed in the characters.
After finishing this show in one day, I am certain it was designed to be binge-watched. Its plot is so gripping and the story is laid out in such a way that you never feel the incentive to hit apple Q or alt F4; plus, it’s only 24 episodes. If any of you have a few days to spare, or if any of you feel that dire need to be distracted from the mundanity of quotidian life, dive in. You won’t regret it.
