  6. 9Steins;Gate

    2

    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.

    "What makes this similar to SAO is that it's also set in an MMORPG world but other than that, the stories of each anime are totally different. I can't compare both of them because they are both good. Since ending SAO, this has become my new obsession. So far, so good! :D"
