All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Steins;Gates is a must-watch series, if only to watch how it consistently pushes boundaries in the genre of science fiction.

Steins;Gate is an emotional, time-travel story with interesting characters and an engaging intertwining storyline.

Mar 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Steins;Gate is slow to start, but builds into an enthralling sci-fi mystery with tight plotting, memorable characters, and a genuinely novel twist on the iterative process of time travel.

Steins;Gate manages to cover a lot of ground; it can be hilarious at times as well as downright disturbing, simultaneously both emotionally engaging and comically entertaining.

    Superb Sci-fi thriller having time travel as its central theme. Steins;Gate is deceptive, takes times to take off, took about 7 episodes to become interesting and only became mind-boggling from episode 13 onwards, after that it was one intense episode after another. The storytelling, characters, plot, suspense, and humor are all great. The way it covers time travel paradox and it's after effects are one of the best showcased, be it in anime or beyond. The characters are all unique, wild and memorable, they fit in perfectly with the storytelling. The animation and sound itself are good, not great but better than decent. I actually enjoyed the opening soundtrack and did hear it over then skipping them. It is a very entertaining anime covering a complex subject yet ending without loose ends, a must watch.

    This is a classic in the same league as Ghost in the Shell. Great story, great characters, great romance and great tragedy. A bit slow initially and Okabe can be annoying, but this is important plot element when the action starts. Well worth a watch and make sure you have some tissues available. The sequel OVA movie is excellent as well.
