An introduction to Steins;Gate

Time travel is a bitch. Prime example of this is ‘Back To The Future Part 2‘ where Marty buys a Sports Almanac to place some sure to win bets in the 1980’s in the future. Doc Brown tosses it somewhere where Old Biff picks up after hearing about the time machine and screws up Marty’s life. Granted, it was McFly’s fault in the first place but you get what I’m saying.

You already read Ziven’s intro for ‘[K]’ and in following in her footsteps, I have an introduction as well to an anime that should watch if you are up to the challenge. This one has a little bit of everything — from Slice of Life, Mystery, Romance and Sci-Fi there is something in the show that you will want you to continue on.

Plot Summary:Rintaro Okabe is a self-proclaimed “mad scientist” who believes that an international scientific organization named SERN is conspiring to reshape the world according to its own interests. He and his friend Itaru Hashida inadvertently create a gadget able to send messages to the past. The discovery and experimentation of this instrument become the catalyst of fundamental alterations to the present. Okabe is the only one aware of these changes because he possesses a Reading Steiner, the ability to retain the memories from previous experienced timelines. Oblivious of the consequences of their actions, Rintaro and his friends end up creating modifications of grievous proportions. He must then try to find a way to return as close as possible to the original timeline in order to save his precious lab partners.

I first found out about this show when I was on tumblr and I ran into this image:

Back to the Future Reference FTW!

From there, I had to check this show out that warrant a Back to The Future reference and I’m glad I did. A few of the episodes had me question Okabe’s sanity but the more episodes I watched, the more I found out that this guy really does care for everyone that he calls his Lab Members. The Time Travel element is done in a way that makes sense and doesn’t leave any plot holes left unanswered. To talk more about this show would be going into spoilers so I’m telling you to go check it out. All the episodes are on Youtube if I did a good job in introducing this awesome series (legally, I might add) .

El psy congroo.
