If you like Chaos;Head last year, you will most likely like this up and coming anime from the same creator and animator. Stein;Gate, see even the naming convention is the same, is about time traveling made based on a XB360 and PC game of the same title.
According to a Tweet from the president of .5Pb, Chiyomaru Shikura, it’s confirms that there will be an anime adaptation of the game.
The anime is expected to be featuring the same storyline used in the Graphic Novel like game, which happens in Akihabara in Japan on the 28th of July, 2010. It’s about 1 year since the events of Chao;Head and the main character is a Crazy inventor.
Stein;Gate being a game making use of the Time Traveling theme, thus will also be invoking the Butterfly effect, and very heavily too, to the extend of either creating a WWIII or a peaceful future.
Here is a general preview based on the Wikipedia:
The story of Steins;Gate begins on July 28, 2010, in Akihabara, with Rintarō Okabe and Mayuri Shiina heading towards the Radio Kaikan building. Inside the building, Rintarō finds the body of Kurisu Makise with a pool of blood in a room. He leaves the building with Mayuri in a panic and sends a text message to Hashida Itaru about the incident when all the people around him suddenly vanish. They reappear moments later but no one around him seems to have experienced the same phenomena that he did.
Does it sounds like something from Chao;Head, why afterall they are from the same creator .5Pb(Publisher) and .Nitroplus(Developer).
But being in Akihabara instead of the boring Shinjuku has it’s advantages, like maids, cosplayers and a gender blender…
Oh so looking forward to it~
PS: The PC port of the game is slated for release on the 26th of August almost 1 year after it’s XB360 release.
