Product Description

Prepare yourself for the mind-bending conclusion to the sci-fi anime event of the year!

The microwave is a time machine and the girl gets shot. Okarin sends another text. Nukes another banana. The mad scientist meddled with forces he never should have known about. The girl gets run over by a car. Okarin goes back to stop the bleeding. Dashes madly through the dark streets. Races against time. The girl gets hit by a train. Failures and flatlines multiply in a ghastly pattern of repetition. Over and over and over again until sanity is stripped away and you start to notice shapes slipping in and out of the shadows. SERN. The girl gets stabbed before and after the kissing. Okarin grows frantic. Bodies pile up around him. SERN is getting closer. The girl is bleeding. A Top Secret Future Gadget Lab member from the future is their only hope. The blood sprays and the girl dies. SERN destroys the world. Kills all the girls. There is time for one last try. Now Okarin bleeds but he won't stop. Ever. The microwave is a time machine and the girl always gets shot.

The outré sci-fi adventure Steins;Gate grows darker and more complex as the filmmakers draw together the twisted strands of the plot. Self-proclaimed "mad scientist" Rintaro Okabe and the oddballs who make up his lab--ingenuous cosplayer Mayuri, red-haired genius Makise, super-hacker "Daru" Hashida, techno-warrior Suzuha, shy texter Moeka, transgendered Ruka, and maid café entrepreneur Faris--have actually created a time machine out of an improbable assemblage of electronic junk. But its creation means they're subject to the deadly wrath of the cutting-edge research center SERN. Are the texts from rebel time traveler John Titor true? Is Okabe the savior who can prevent the establishment of an oppressive dystopia ruled by SERN? And can Okabe fulfill that mission without imperiling the lives of his friends? Despite the problems and paradoxes inherent in any time-travel narrative, the cast and crew of Steins;Gate bring the story to a satisfying and curiously logical conclusion. Each character remains true to himself or herself, and each willingly sacrifices personal rewards for a better future they can share. Okabe may have grown a little wiser through his often wrenching experiences, but he remains as unapologetically nutty as he was when the series began. Voice actor J. Michael Tatum keeps Okabe appealing and believable, even at his emotional extremes, and the rest of the cast performs with equal aplomb. A delightful mixture of adventure, mystery, romance, and slapstick, Steins;Gate ranks among the very best recent anime series, and the theatrical feature slated for release in Japan in early 2013 is something to look forward to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A scientific review of Steins;Gate... August 9, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
As I write this, there have been 5 reviews posted on Amazon. They have refrained from spoiling much of the plot, and I won't either. So far no one has really commented on the scientific knowledge base referenced in the series, so I thought I'd share that.

Steins;Gate falls into a relatively small genre of anime where many of the plot points are adaptations of some field of science, in this case "chaos theory." Other examples are Noein which is based on quantum mechanic philosophies, and Serial Experiments Lain which is based on artificial intelligence. About half of the titles of Steins;Gate episodes are direct references to concepts in chaos theory, most importantly the "butterfly effect." The butterfly effect quips that a butterfly flapping its wings in Texas can cause a typhoon 2 weeks later in Tokyo. That is the premise of the show, that by sending 18 character text messages into the past one can dramatically shift the future.

It's hard to go into particulars without giving some plot points away, but idea of a (strange) "attractor" also plays a key role in the story. Namely, no matter how much you perturb the timeline, some events seemingly cannot be escaped. Much of the plot revolves around the main characters' repeated efforts to avert those destinies, and much of the character development comes from the anguish of not being able to do so. The story also contains passing references to divergence, singularities, fractals, homeostasis...

Finally, let me applaud the writers for having a very realistic time-machine concept. Most stories have time-machines immediately invented that are capable of transporting humans through time. In Steins;Gate, the first time machine can only transmit data, and only 18 characters worth of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's play with time.... August 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Rintaro Okabe considers himself a mad scientist. He spends most of his time inventing useless gadgets and conceiving wild conspiracy theories. Through sheer luck, he and his friend Itaru Hashida actually create a machine that can send text messages to the past. Through their experimentation and tinkering with time, they keep changing their world, though only Okabe is able to remember the previous timeline. But playing around with something like time is bound to have consequences, as Okabe finds out all too well.....

I generally don't have much interest in time travel stories. But if the premise sounds interesting, I'll give it a try. The premise of Steins;Gate sounded vaguely entertaining, but I might not have tried it if it hadn't been streaming on Crunchyroll and had high ratings on AnimeNewsNetwork. The first few episodes were fun, but I wasn't really hooked until around 8 episodes in. That is where the story really starts. And boy, it doesn't let up until the end! The story it very intense and fast paced. It was a rather surprising change, after the laid-back, comedic first few episodes. I went from wanting to see more, to NEEDING to see more. In addition to a great story, this series also has great characters. Okabe is the most interesting, and most developed, since he is the main character, but the others each have their chance to shine.

This is one of the best anime series I've see in a while. Possibly the best Sci-Fi anime I've EVER seen. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys an exciting and well woven story. Anyone who enjoys stories that make them think a little. Stories that have wacky characters that you come to love, science fiction, thrill, or mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundhog Day meets Terminator July 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Steins; Gate is a truly original Anime. OK, no story is ever TRULY original now, I know, but the mix included here is.

The first bunch of episodes are happy go lucky, in a fun sort of way. Okabe is a mad scientist trying to build a time machine to fight against the "establishment." Along for the ride are his friends Mayuri and Haru. When he finds a dead girl at a convention, only to later that day be told he never went to the convention, we realize something is going on. Then when he meets the same girl at a different lecture, we know for sure something's up. As the story progresses we add more female characters (it's not a harem show, I promise!) and a LOT more drama. And they change the past (well, change the past, that changes the future...) with a MICROWAVE and email/text messages!

By the end of the first part of Steins; Gate things have gone terribly wrong, with Okabe fighting to retain his sanity and save dear friend.

Based on a "graphic novel" for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC (Japanese only), the game was originally designed by Nitro+ and 5pb as a 99% science, 1% fantasy game. It's not difficult to see why they called it so. For those craving the game, JAST USA has announced that, through their partnership with Nitro+, they will be releasing an English localized version of the game on PC eventually.

I am reviewing everything below based on the Blu Ray edition of the set. I have not powered up the DVDs and have no need to do so.

Video:

AVC encoded at 1080p. Bit rates in the 20-32 range mean there is no compression blocking or issues. The only video concern I have is gradients. Sometimes the gradients used have harsh transitions. This is, however, part of the show and NOT a problem with the encode.

out of stock from amazon?
Anime usually fluctuates in and out of stock on amazon as it is a relatively niche market everywhere but Japan. Right now it is in stock :) I hope you enjoy it, I personally love this series!
