Big Blue and the Future Gadget Lab have teamed up for a series of Steins;Gate - The Sagacious Wisdom of Cognitive Computing anime shorts on IBM's Mugendai site. Inspired by the hypothetical science adventure's incorporation of an IBM 5100 PC into its plot, four shorts are being produced, starting with a look at the mad scientist crew's kitchen efforts.
FUNimation had lots of news to announce at this weekend's Otakon, including their plans for a new release of Cowboy Bebop, lots of home video rights to titles they streamed, and Kadokawa licenses including a number of rescues and the Steins;Gate movie. Get the details after the jump.
