“I’m the great mad scientist, Hououin Kyoma!”
A new sequel title “Steins;Gate 0” has been announced which is a sequel to the “Steins; Gate” visual novel game. The game will be launched on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita on November 19 (Woah, so close to my birthday which is November 21). It will also have an anime adaptation also titled “Steins;Gate 0.”
Now, let’s have a short recap on the previously adapted anime TV series of Steins; Gate.
The story of Steins;Gate takes place in Akihabara. It is about a group of friends who made a time machine-like device, a microwave that can send text messages to the past. They perform different experiments to learn more about time travelling and to expand their knowledge on time travelling, As they perform more and more experiments, an organization named SERN who has been doing their own research on time travel tracks them down and now the characters are put in a situation in which they have to find a way to avoid being captured by them.
The visual novel of Steins;Gate got high ratings because of it’s good storyline. ( I want to play the visual novel so badly).
I watched the anime and I will say that it was really mind-blowing. There are really confusing parts which requires you to focus more for you to understand the story. First episode was really confusing but as you go further and further, you will understand the story little by little.
Ok, I’m gonna stop explaining the episodes here because I might accidentally write some spoilers (Beware of Spoilers).
Now, the sequel of the new anime adaptation and the new visual novel has a new story in it. I guess the sequel anime adaptation is a continuation of the movie of Steins;Gate.
Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryouiki no Déjà vu (the movie of the TV anime series “Steins;Gate”). This anime movie film takes place one year after the events of the anime series.
Ok, Spoiler Alert.
November 2010, the Beta World Line…
A story that unfolds after Rintarou Okabe returns, having failed to save “her” on July 28th. He had no idea that the system known as “Amadeus” would once again drag him into a world of dark conspiracy.
Yes, “she” is still there.
Steins;Gate 0 is set in the β (Beta) World Timeline of the novel. Maybe you don’t know what the Beta World Timeline is about. You will understand when you watch the anime or when you play the visual novel.
I’m really looking forward for this anime adaptation because the prequel has been one of my favorites of all time. It was really quite confusing at first because it’s a sci-fi anime but you will understand it if you pay close attention to it. I really wish I owned a PlayStation 3 or a PlayStation 4 or a PS Vita so I can play the game myself. But I’m sure that someday I will play the visual novel of Steins;Gate (SOMEDAY).
