Steins;Gate originated from a visual novel game before it became a manga and anime series. Usually, anime shows are already adapted from ongoing manga series but in Steins;Gate's case, it started with a video game released in 2009. Given its popularity, having an anime adaptation only two years later comes to no surprise. The anime itself gained a massive following and avid fans watch and rewatch Steins;Gate episodes. It's the kind of anime that you can go back to.
