The self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents out a room in a rickety old building in Akihabara, where he indulges himself in his hobby of inventing prospective "future gadgets" with fellow lab members: Mayuri Shiina, his air-headed childhood friend, and Hashida Itaru, a perverted hacker nicknamed "Daru." The three pass the time by tinkering with their most promising contraption yet, a machine dubbed the "Phone Microwave," which performs the strange function of morphing bananas into piles of green gel. Though miraculous in itself, the phenomenon doesn't provide anything concrete in Okabe's search for a scientific breakthrough; that is, until the lab members are spurred into action by a string of mysterious happenings before stumbling upon an unexpected success—the Phone Microwave can send emails to the past, altering the flow of history. Adapted from the critically acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, Steins;Gate takes Okabe through the depths of scientific theory and practicality. Forced across the diverging threads of past and present, Okabe must shoulder the burdens that come with holding the key to the realm of time.

Encoder's Notes

The earlier encode turned out trash, so I re did the entire thing.
Steins;Gate still has a crazy amount of banding, my filter chain consisted basically of reupscalling and tons of masked debanding followed by slight grain.

The earlier version had heavy sync issues, its all fixed now.
I’d recommend passing the encode through mpv’s deband filter or something similar for the best viewing experience. However if you choose not to, its still fine, the encode still looks good.

If you notice something off feel free to drop a comment. Peace.

While that start is slow, it just gets better and better. Amazing time travel story with a great cast, this truly is one of the best anime.


Nothing makes sense, but then EVERYTHING makes sense.


The quintessential time travel anime that is filled with gelnanas, cat girls, and a microwave that controls the space time continuum


El Psy Congro


The best time travel story I have ever seen. Get through the confusing first episode, you won’t regret it.




Slow start but gets increasingly better with character development and twists and turns, a great conceptual idea on time travel. Recommend
