Anime recommendation: Steins;Gate

Some weeks ago I watched the last episode of Steins;Gate, a Japanese anime from 2011 with 24 episodes.

It was actually really good and I would like to recommend it.

It’s about a self-proclaimed “mad scientist” named Rintaro Okabe who together with his lab members invents a device that makes it possible to send messages to the past and hence change the present and future. In the beginning of the anime, he witness the death of a young and talented neuroscience researcher who will come to be his good friend and heroine of the series. Okabe does all he can to prevent her death.

But changing the past obviously isn’t easy and it’s impossible to know what the outcome will be by a simple single change. Okabe will – together with his friends – face a lot of obstacles and the ending is pretty surprising.

The character are easy to like and it all takes place in the otaku area Akihabara in Tokyo. It got a lot of humor, sometimes – unfortunately – ridiculous ones like “oops, I grabbed your boobs” and so on.  And sometimes it’s a little bit confusing with time-jumps, but maybe it’s because I watched it before I went to sleep. ^_-
