The concept of time travel is nothing new in the world of science fiction. In the case of the anime Steins;Gate though, it somehow gets applied in such a weird way that you can't help but think if it's actually possible. If the idea of a mad scientist using a microwave to send a banana back in time isn't weird, we don't know what is. Get past that though, and you'll realize the show is trying to tell a much deeper story. At its core, it's truly about a group of flawed by likable characters and how they are affected by the often-difficult decisions they make in their lives. It's funny, intense, and an occasionally dark anime show and it's everything you'd hope this kind of show would be.
