I’m little late to the party with this one, but I just finished watching the Steins;Gate series and gotta say that it is mind-blowingly mind blowing. I simply love it.If you like mind twisting time travel stories, suspense mixed with comedy, characters you really get to know and like, this is the series for you. It involves a self-proclaimed mad scientist, his group of endearing friends that he calls lab assistants, a mysterious organization that’s after them, and a time machine that’s made out of a microwave and TV. The characters were designed by illustrator, huke, which makes Steins;Gate that much more awesome.
Dare I say it, but I believe that the English dub version is better than the Japanese language version – for American audiences. Blasphemy you say? Maybe, but the script writers did a great job localizing the comedic elements for American tastes. I watched both versions and the English version was just plain funnier to me. The voice actors did a bang up job as well.
