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.
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.
