Episodes:24

The self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents out a room in a rickety old building in Akihabara, where he indulges himself in his hobby of inventing prospective “future gadgets” with fellow lab members: Mayuri Shiina, his air-headed childhood friend, and Hashida Itaru, a perverted hacker nicknamed “Daru.” The three pass the time by tinkering with their most promising contraption yet, a machine dubbed the “Phone Microwave,” which performs the strange function of morphing bananas into piles of green gel.

Though miraculous in itself, the phenomenon doesn’t provide anything concrete in Okabe’s search for a scientific breakthrough; that is, until the lab members are spurred into action by a string of mysterious happenings before stumbling upon an unexpected success—the Phone Microwave can send emails to the past, altering the flow of history.

Adapted from the critically acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, Steins;Gate takes Okabe through the depths of scientific theory and practicality. Forced across the diverging threads of past and present, Okabe must shoulder the burdens that come with holding the key to the realm of time.

An anime which never gets old how many ever times I rewatch it. It is one of the only anime that I actually cried for.

The Good 
A solid storyline with good soundtracks to back it up. You will find yourself relating more and more to Hououin Kyouma as the latter half of the story unfolds. Steins;Gate is a masterpiece exhibiting thought-out time travel mechanics. The characters are deep, and well developed, each with their own problems. The story is well-told, with art to match. I stated that its dull colors were its downside, and true, all of the art(except Makise's hair) is very grey and drab, befitting of the story, however; I do like bright colors, and would have liked to see more vibrant colors.
The time travel is executed into the story marvelously, causing me to pause and think about the implications of an action, or newly revealed problem, before going on. 
I would recommend this to anyone who is not against "dark" themes, on the basis of its intriguing story.
