Eccentric scientist Rintarou Okabe has a never-ending thirst for scientific exploration. Together with his ditzy but well-meaning friend Mayuri Shiina and his roommate Itaru Hashida, Okabe founds the Future Gadget Laboratory in the hopes of creating technological innovations that baffle the human psyche. Despite claims of grandeur, the only notable "gadget" the trio have created is a microwave that has the mystifying power to turn bananas into green goo.

However, when Okabe attends a conference on time travel, he experiences a series of strange events that lead him to believe that there is more to the "Phone Microwave" gadget than meets the eye. Apparently able to send text messages into the past using the microwave, Okabe dabbles further with the "time machine," attracting the ire and attention of the mysterious organization SERN.

Due to the novel discovery, Okabe and his friends find themselves in an ever-present danger. As he works to mitigate the damage his invention has caused to the timeline, Okabe fights a battle to not only save his loved ones but also to preserve his degrading sanity.

Clearly, one of the best animes I've ever watched
Steins;Gate, a story about a self-proclaimed mad scientist, Hououin Kyouma or
maybe you know Okabe

I don't know whether I could tell that the story is fully revolving around him or no

Steins;Gate was a wonderful journey.

It took me at least 3 years to get past the first 3 episodes.
Keep repeating, and repeating.

Mixed Feelings
Steins;Gate is a solidly produced anime that starts up a bit slow, but ramps up in its second half.
The story is predictable but the character relations make it work pretty well, with emotional payoffs at the right times.
Viewers who aren't accustomed to the usual time travel tropes can even get some extra enjoyment out of the show, since they might be surprised by most or all of the plot twists.

If you don't set your expectations too high before going in and find carthatic emotional payoffs more satisfying than a stringent plot development you will be in for quite a good time.

The story is basic, the art style is the same as most anime but less saturated, the male characters are gross and annoying, nobody has goals that I can relate to, and it takes way too long for any simple story beat to happen

Apparently this review need more words, but I'm not a professional reviewer so I think that's stupid, and don't want to waste your time with a whole essay essentially saying "I didn't like it" so instead I'll recommend some time travel stories that are better. Futurama. It's funny. I don't know why they're rebooting it though, it's such an early 2000s show. ...
