Steins;Gate

But summer hasn't ended yet and I still have another series to share.
The main cast of Steins;Gate
This one was a close one. When I say that, I meant that I was close to dropping this one due to the animation quality (see previous post). During the first few episodes of this anime, the quality of how the characters (mostly the face and eyes) were drawn were done very poorly but what kept me going was the concept of the plot.

Steins;Gate the anime came out in April and is still ongoing (set for 23 episodes which mark the finale on Sept. 7).  It features: Okabe, a self-proclaimed mad scientist, Mayuri, a girl who is portrayed as innocent and pure, and Itaru, an otaku and a "Super Hacker". The three of them (but mainly Okabe and Itaru) work on quirky inventions. They eventually create a microwave into a device that can send text messages to the past (dubbed D-Mail). As they explore the their device, they discover SERN, an organization that researches time travel, but SERN doesn't want anyone else to have time travel capabilities so Okabe and friends must avoid capture.

While trying not to spoil anything while explaining the plot, I've pretty much summed up the first 10 episodes or so. During those 10 episodes, we see Okabe recruit new members and trying out more experiments. But more importantly, those 10 episodes help develop each character into deep and possible likable characters.

I really can't guess how this will end as the series up until now has been full of twists and turns so I await the finale (and thankfully, it ends before school starts).

I do not own or take credit for all of the above images, if you would like them to be taken down, please message me.

Have you watched this series yet? How do you think this is going to end? Any animes you liked and want to share?

Well could add this to my watchlist, but my watchlist is already miles long Higurashi, Ef - A tale of memories(been trying to get this, but each time I end up stop downloading, then when I finally had the entire series the home PC got stolen FAIL, didn't get a chance to backup before that weekend. :() Code Geass R2 Darker than Black second season. Would really recommend Darker than Black, kept me guessing till the end. Code Geass got a bit annoying close to the end, but it was still great.

Sometimes I which you could get subtitled buy able versions of anime sounds so stupid to have to download it.

I've been so cautious about this series due to how bad an anime Chaos;head was, since it was so similar in origins to this. (That is, a great Nitroplus game turned into an anime.) but my friend likes it.
