By the time you've read this review you could've been watching Steins Gate

I've seen a lot of Anime. I've seen Dubbed anime, and I've seen subbed anime (by the way the English voice-overs are spot on, and you'd regret not watching it in English). I've see crazy over the top anime, and I've seen down to earth anime. I've seen plots that make sense, and a whole hell of a lot of plots that don't.
This series beats them all.
I'm not joking. I love this show more than Lelouch of the Rebellion R1 and R2, though that show's ending is still the best ever. I love this show more than Gurren Lagann, though that show is probably the most inspiring show ever. Steins Gate's time travelling plot holds more water than Bioshock Infinite. The grim, gritty consequences are more heart wrenching than most of the Doctor Who plot twists. And it's genuinely funny to boot.
The characters are some of the most fleshed out in any series ever. Some of the characters fall under classic anime tropes, but you care about them as individuals because they are more than just skin deep. The anime quality and style is almost mesmerizing (I watched it in 1080 resolution), and since they take the time to flesh out the story line, much of the time there is no one speaking, you just have to watch.
If you haven't seen it, watch it. At the time of this review there have only been 3 other reviews, which is a crime. They only reason to stay away is if you need there to be action and fighting and blood in every episode, because there isn't. Also, if watching story-lines about time travel sickens you, stay away. Of course, if you hate feeling feelings, crying tears, and emotionally satisfying conclusions, you should probably stay away from this show for those reasons too.
For the rest of you, stop reading this review and watch the show. STOP.READING. NOW. GO. WATCH. STEINS. GATE.

A show near and dear to mein heart.

Initial thoughts
Great MC, cooky, weird sense of humor in the best nerdy way possible, and the female lead is strong, intelligent, and actually contributes significantly to the plot in her own right. When girls in animes are called "heroines" what they really mean is "love interest." "Hero" is just thrown at them for some stupid reason. This female lead, on the other had, actually is one, in every way. Seeing the relationship between the two grow and bloom was the most enjoyable aspect of the show, along with the suspenseful and treacherous journey they go through. Every character has heart, even the ones you later hate, become ones you come to understand and maybe, if begrudgingly so, forgive. Not really, but kinda.
It is very slow at first, and you don't really understand what's going on initially, but when it picks up, it does so so fast it hits the ceiling. everything that was once just another peaceful, incremental day to day, is suddenly complete and utter unpredictable chaos. The Sci Fi references were such a treat, holy crap. Oh, the Sci Fi element. Again, yet again, it's a genre that revealing what it is can be thought of as a spoiler. but again, here, it really isnt since, again, the genre subject is introduced in the very first episode. Having said that, if that's a thing for you, read no more and watch the shite out of this show. for the rest of you, the genre is time travel. Almost feels silly to have to warn that at all, it's like warning H.G. Well's "the time machine" includes a spoiler in the title of the book so don't read that. moving one. It's extremely well done, there isn't a lot of focus on jargon, just enough to establish generally what is happening to timelines so you can enjoy the rest of the show. you really don't need to even understand it any more than you do with other shows that use the same mechanic. BUT... the fun here is that it plays with the logic a little, and it its pretty interesting. Especially the inherent element of all time-travel shows where anything can happen, and at any moment everything can go to hell. If that doesn't sound like a good time to you, than i question your idea of a good time, cuz this is the wildest ride in the wilderness, and definitely not a gentle walk down main street.

As smart as it is heartfelt, Steins;Gate is a time-traveling story done right.

Steins;Gate is deeply affecting and meticulously constructed time-traveling science-fiction anime.

It stars a diverse and likable cast with clear motivations and depth. The score is memorable and immersive. The animation is crisp and detailed. I found myself listening to the opening and ending themes of each and every episode, not just because because I enjoyed them, but also because I wanted the show to go on for as long as it could. The one negative thing I have to say about Steins;Gate is the comedy is a bit hit or miss, your degree of amusement is largely dependent on how much you like Engrish.

Nonetheless this is a show that no fan of anime, science-fiction, or well told stories should miss.

A thrilling treat in time to watch!

The story is well put together and the plot can hardly be said with out spoiling too much. I will say that it is about time travel and at times, can be very unpredictable and shocking. Other times? Perhaps a little cliche. I did enjoy the plot and how every piece broke it self apart and put it self together for a satisfying ending. The OVA (1 episode) is needed for that feeling. Dubbed or subbed? Both are very well done and though I do like the Japanese slightly better, one particular character is much more annoying in the subbed.

Really well done series

A must watch if you are a drama fan, this series was great to watch and it's one of those that makes you want to sit down all day and watch it all at once, not many series do this to me but this was great and very well done. Also if you are a fan of Chaos Head I believe these two animes have something to do with one another, wish Crunchyroll published it.
