Thriller, Comedy, Sci-fi, Romantic, Slice-of-Life(think this one's mostly used in anime related releases)

There is no way to give any short summary of the series, as it would spoil everything with the slightest mention of a big bunch of things. the short version of this review: Buy it! definitely worth it, i have no doubts about that. Watch it & tell everyone to watch it too.

(no spoiler or anything like that)
Steins;Gate is by my own opinion the best Anime series ever created. I have no idea what genre to call it, how to review it fast or even how to explain the ways this series has inspired me(mostly the characters & their personalities) I have seen quite a lot, a few hundred shows, and out of all, this one caught my eye(probably because the ; looked cool in the title) and i started watching it. As i had gotten through the first episodes; i was hooked. Nothing could tear me away from the tv. What makes this series so great? it's quite simple: perfect story, perfect character's(and development), tons of twists you will not be expecting, intelligent dialogue and magnificent sound design. I bought the set from the US a while back, though i regretted it as it was announced in the UK a few hours after my order with, what i'll call, a more comfortable price.

This is part 1, which means you need part 2 to complete your set. Part 2 is the "you won't be sitting still through this" part of the series, but that surely doesn't mean part 1 is a bad deal, it's quite the opposite.

Have you ever wanted to attach a phone to a microwave and make the turntable rotate the other way? That's exactly the sort of thing Future Gadget Lab (its three members; a mad scientist, a super hacker and a cosplay expert) specialise in but what happens with this particular Future Gadget, the telephone microwave (temporary name), leads to a very strange series of events. Stranger than attaching a phone to a microwave.

The real appeal of the show is its lovable cast of characters that are each a careful balance of ridiculousness and believability that make each and every one compelling and likeable. The pace of the story slows to a crawl after the opening few episodes. However this isn't really a problem spending time with the eclectic cast of characters is fun. Though I haven't seen the rest of the series it does feel as if there will be a pay off to taking the time to get us invested in the characters. If not I still enjoyed this half of the series immensely on its own merits.

With regards to the specifics of the release I don't have a whole lot to say. As is the norm nowadays picture audio quality are a non-issue. This release is derived from Funimation's version and so its competently done, no nasty surprises. I would marginally have preferred the titles be left intact (untranslated) but even for an obsessive like me it's not a serious problem.

I picked up this set on a whim not really knowing what the show was about not really knowing much about the show but now I'm really looking forward to seeing the second half of the series. I had a great time watching this series but to be honest I dithered between giving four and five stars. The tie breaker was some idiot skewing the rating but this show is so much fun it does legitimately deserves all five.

What we have here in this first half of the season is a story about a good natured but socially inept guy who fancies himself a mad professor and the friends he accumulates having stumbled upon time travel and the experiments they conduct.
It moves along at a slow pace having fun with the characters and their interactions whilst exploring concepts like the butterfly effect and alternate timelines whilst adding in little bits that will make sense later on in the series and pop culture references like internet time traveller J.Titor and the SERN facility.
The art is nicely done, the dub is good and this is a nice quality anime.
As the show heads towards the end of the first half of the season things start to get slightly ominous for our group ending in a tragic shock moment and a cliffhanger ending that will lead into a dramatic second half of the season.

I saw a few episodes of this on TV and couldn't get enough of it so finding this blu-ray was brilliant. Definitly an anime worth giving a go of.

This anime is about one of the best of its time, boasting gripping drama, amazing characters along with ample development, good animation quality and a soundtrack that sets a whole new bar. A definite must for any scifi/anime fans. One of the most drawing factors for me is that it is a story that actually focuses on time-travel rather than using it as a pivot to continually differing premises.

The one problem with this DvD is that the quality is relatively poor. Not as in picture quality but... since each disc has 6 anime episodes rather than 4 par the norm, in order to fit the show onto each disc, they are sped up by approxiametely 1.5 times. You can definitely see this if you have watched the original anime and have gone on to buy this. This is mainly more of a problem for people who are watching this for the first time since the story is confusing enough without the increased speed. If this was improved, I would have given this 5 stars.
