Is Steins Gate Worth Watching?

Steins Gate is one of those animes that take away the boring and cliché aspects of time travel, similar to that of TARDIS, and turns it into something newer and more emotional. Stein’s Gate is a franchise that’s started from a visual novel that went on to inspire a 24-episode anime along with a film and several spin-offs similar to the visual novel alternate ending method. The story is masterfully written to give people the feel of time travel without making it seem like a rip-off from any mainstream series.

Stein’s gate beautifully brings in the notion that alternating reality will undoubtedly have effects in the present and in the future, the butterfly effect so to speak. It is done through a simple text, while showing of reality balances itself out and how something so simple would take away something that makes up a part of someone’s life.

The story revolves around Rintaro Okabe who called himself a ‘Mad Scientist’. The setting is in the year 2010 in the Akihabara district in Tokyo where he is the owner of ‘Future Gadget Laboratory’. The Laboratory is found in an apartment that he runs with his friends Itaru ‘Daru’ Hashida and Mayuri Shiina.

The story starts to become serious when Okabe is attending a conference about Time Travel and he comes across the dead body of Kurisu Makise, who is a neuroscience researcher.

Later along with his crew and Kurisu, they find out that one of their creations has the power to send texts back in time which they use to change the past to save the present.

Each and every character in the series whether they are the main character or a side character is built extremely well, giving them as much importance as Okabe, the protagonist of the series, unlike the other stories where the side character’s existence is for the sake of the main ones. This makes it so that readers or viewers dive deep into the realm of Stein’s Gate. The series shows the wonderful relationship between each character along with the importance of having people alongside you to guide or give you support during your tough times.

The first few minutes are spent figuring out how time travel actually works, which can be very confusing at first but due to Okabe’s funny tirades and almost comical inner dialogues, this becomes fairly easy to understand. As the protagonist, Okabe is the man who is solely responsible for noticing the changes or differences that occur between multiple different timelines. If he makes a mistake, it is the same as killing his friends because a single mistake could cause the death of his friends. Okabe watches his friends die again and again throughout the series and all that took was a single mistake.

Steins Gate also introduces different theories of the multiverse as well as parallel universe theories that confuse yet excite people. It might seem like a bore at first but understanding the theories make the series much easier to watch down the line because man things start happening between various timelines and can start to get confusing.

The story uses a lot of different slang and terms related to time travel and can be a bit difficult to understand and comprehend at first however once that is down it becomes quite enjoyable to watch.

The pacing of the story can get frustrating and the reputation of certain moments might push people over the edge. The drama also might seem like a bit too much and with too many things happening at once it can seem a bit overwhelming. 

However, if you buckle down and watch it, as frustrating as it might seem it is probably one of the best series out there and it would be a waste to not give it a shot.

The story starts to become serious when Okabe is attending a conference about Time Travel and he comes across the dead body of Kurisu Makise, who is a neuroscience researcher. He quickly sends a message to Daru only to find out that Kurisu is alive and well and that Daru had already received a message from him regarding it before he sent it.

Once back in the apartment, the crew decides to find out what happened and discover that one of the creations that they made, a cell phone-operated microwave oven under development, somehow gained the ability to send a message back in time. Kurisu decides to join them and they investigate it and name the messages ‘D-mails’, deciding to use the mails to change by sending them to the past to change the present.

While this goes on a secret organization named SERN, is researching time travel t find out about the machine developed by the crew. They send people to find the machine and bring it back and in the tussle that ensues Mayuri is killed. To prevent her death and save Mayuri, Okabe goes back in time but fails each and every time. He finds out that the only way to stop her death was to change the very first text he sent and to stop anything from ever happening, however, this would mean that Kurisu would die instead. Okabe and Kurisu at this point have already developed feelings for each other, but Kurisu tells Okabe that it’s better to put things the way they were and that he should save Mayuri. Daru works to hack into SERN’s database and he deletes the recording of the D-mail which automatically returns them to the original timeline.

The problems don’t end here however as Suzuha Amane, Daru’s daughter in the future comes from the future to warn them about World War III that is happening in their timeline due to the use of a time-travel arms race. She tells Okabe that the only way to stop this was to prevent the death of Kurisu, who was killed at the hands of her father Nakabachi who wanted to steal her time travel theories. Suzuki and Okabe travel back in time to save Kurisu but Okabe ends up killing her himself by mistake. They once again return to the present only to find that he has received a message from his future self who tells him to escape the present timeline, the one where Kurisu is dead, by recreating the vision of Kurisu’s death he saw in the past. Okabe travels back in time, this time provoking Nakabachi into plunging the knife at him, after which he knocks Kurisu out and puts her in the pool of blood, due to his stab wound so that his past self can see it. This causes the timeline to change into that where Kurisu lives and World War III no longer happens.
