A male teen boy who, threw the use of a moblie phone, can change the course of destiny. His love interest is heavily involved within the plot as a fellow lead and there's a strong element of 'God mode'.
Yes, it was that peaceful summer day, then lightning struck, changed my life forever. That sort of shit you heard all the time, the kick is this time what's changing is not some sunflower-carrying tuberculous girl's life but the multiverse instead.
Shock element rules the internet. Anything come unexpected goes viral faster and better than average school comedy. Both show utilize viral marketing well but you don't have to admire that, admiring a hot chick's head asplode is much more inspiring, as always.
Both series deal with unique takes on time travel and the consequences of changing the past. They both have elements of comedy and romance and both surprised me as they wouldn't normally be shows/movies I'm drawn to.
The idea that a secret organisation, according to the protagonist, is conspiring against him is a similarity. At the same time both series are perverted and both have a somewhat weird/special female side-character.

The main characters in both series also seems a bit awkward when trying to interact with 'normal' people, yet somewhat like a leader among their own small clique/group of friends (which seems to be a coding guy and the weird girl in both series).

Besides that, they also have in common that reality seems somewhat off or twisted to the protagonist. There might be more, but this is my impression after the first episode of Steins;Gate :)

Both anime is about time-travelling and the mechanism is used excellently in both stories. Noein spends a bit more time with the "future" worlds than Steins;Gate does and feels a bit more darker/moody than Steins;Gate because the latter had more funny dialogue. Aside from that, Steins;Gate generally had better characters so expect some differences in characterization (Noein had a younger cast in the present timelines), but character developments in both was quite well done.
Its about changing time/fate to save some one soo dear even if it means sacrificing oneself. So many twist keeps u on the edge of your sit every episode and story lines changes so you dont even know whats going one even when you thought you just had, it.

Both Amazing animes.
Both have mysterious feel. And there is a similar point that both animes share.
Both have different worlds and the concept of time travel
Both are thriller anime with a great deal of suspense and mystery. They both start out with a light almost happy go lucky feeling then everything turns dreadfully..dreadfully wrong. They both have great plot's, and while at first they may actually confuse the other. Higurashi just has a considerably greater amount of gore than steins;gate, but both are excellent watches. IF you like one you will probably like the other too.
Durarara!! and Steins;Gate share quite a few interesting themes:

* Both start off with a slow paced "slice of life" ambience that, very subtly, foreshadows the following...
* ...Jump into a neatly intertwined plot.
* Insane characters;
* Norse Mythology references;
* A sprinkle of metaphysics: Time Travel (in Steins;Gate) and Norse Myth Fairies (in Durarara!!).

If you liked any of these aspects in one series, you'll most likely also enjoy the other.

Also, there's the "same voice actor" bonus: Mamoru Miyano and Hana Kanazawa.
Both have the same sort of drama and similar feel at some point
Time traveling, Cellphones, romance, and plotholes
Both series superficially focus on conspiracies involving shadowy organisations and mobile phones, but are actually most memorable for their eccentric and charming protagonists, excellent humour, entertaining central romances, a strong sense of interaction between the cast and fat shut-in hackers.
Steins;Gate are similar in the way that they both require critical thinking and your absolute attention for a clear understanding of what is really going on. Both these anime"s are dark, though Steins;Gate starts of with a lot of humour.Also, the voice actor of the main characters are indeed the same.
This movie deals intricately with witty character interaction, good character development, and extremely similar elements of time-travel. The animation and art are both great, and the music will really pull you into the show. There are tense moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and there will be light-hearted moments where you can laugh. Either way, if you watch either, be prepared for one heck of a ride!

Important note:The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is only a movie you can only fully appreciate if you have watched the previous two seasons adapted before it.
both are Sci-Fi and mystery.
both have something to do with gadgets like television in persona 4 and in moblie phone Steins;Gate .
both are based on games.
both have a girl partner besides them.
both have mysterious or dark atmosphere.
both have same feelings and excitement while watching.
- Non-linier narrative
- Butterfly effect
- Time leap (S;G) Time Loop (YST)
This recomendation is made specifically for those looking for any and every Anime dealing with time travel. I prefer Seikimatsu, but each series has its own charm and own take on the whole matter. One is also more supernatural then the other, where as the one that is less simply deals with time travel. The characters I think are the best part of poth, as they have characters who are quite gripping.
If you wanted to sound smart you can always take the line from these shows and try saying it wearing a lab coat.
Both anime are dark/realistc style, with good characters and some mistery.
one is about time machine and the other about the mafia above the security system.
The settings are definitly different and at a first glance it may not seem that they are similar. They are both humouristic and have a nice feeling to them, but in both shows there are some events that puts the main characters on the edge and the story becomes a bit more complicated and darker. There are supernatural elements but both shows focus on the relationships between the characters and how they develop and deepens through out.
Both has the same Visual Novel Company and it makes Science Fiction very realistic. A little bit fun in the first, but it will be getting very serious about the story and it can make you believe what will happen in the future.
While the series themselves are not that similar, the protagonists in both "deceived" the world. Not to mention they both have amazing evil laughs!
There are so many similarities between these two shows even though the plots/stories are incredibly different. first of all, both series are very dark and involve a lot of action. the main characters in both series are incredibly alluring and the female supporting cast is epic as well. mayushii and yin are both mysterious heroines whose roles and relations to the male protagonist remain a mystery throughout the series. most of all both shows own SUSPENSE!!! great thrillers that are both a MUST WATCH!
Both dealing with unnatural phenomenons and surrounded in mystery. The emotional leaps and ecchi that were in Steins;Gate are not present in Another, but I would say you should at least give it a shot. I enjoyed it.
Both are really boring in the first part, but get more and more exciting afterwards. Both are really dark as well.
Both shows involve supernatural elements and as the plot progresses the audience finds themselves growing more and more fond of the characters as they are further developed. They both have extremely hard-hitting emotional moments involving these characters, and they both have very satisfying plots. In addition, both of these shows are masterpieces in my book. Definitely watch one if you have seen and enjoyed the other!
Involve a repeat of time,somebody who remebers every timeline,and they are very good.
They both have a mysterious feel to it, with a dark atmosphere and based around supernatural events.
The male leads get themselves involved with matters they probably should have left alone, be it time travel or making wishes on cat god statues, and set off to undoing the damage that has been done by their actions. Both are assisted in their quest by a girl they meet by pure chance.

Both Kuroshitsuji and Steins;Gate have there serious points and their not so serious points and have a bit of violence with something to do with a period in time Kuroshitsuji taking in place in the past and Steins;Gate getting involved with both past and future
Parallel worlds, mystery,... very similar, if you like amnesia you'll like steins gate too. XD
Both share a main character blessed (or cursed) with a special power. Allowing them to change the world. Or try to... Awesome soundtrack, character development, an impossible romance, lots of plot twists, incredible seiyus (voiceovers). In the end you can't stop watching this after 4-5 episodes, you're hooked and need to finish it off =)
Both anime have this parallel world universe that makes the MC decide on his path.
Similar to the Millefieore part of Katekyo Hitman Reborn (Time Traveling and different worlds)

Let's play the both game! Both:
Are based on video novel games
Are in the top 5 rated shows on the site (I'm talking about after story but that's Clannad to)
Are psuedo harems where the winner is pretty much clear from the beginning
Feature some altered timeline mumbo jumbo (Although in very different ways)
Have a slow start but likeable characters that suck you in

The difference starts to become clear after you've gotten to know the characters, these are very different series in almost every way. The main difference is that while Steins;Gate makes you feel miserable and very good and everything inbetween it does more of making you feel good and being funny than it does making you feel miserable. Clannad is basically that but inverted, most people cry when they watch Clannad but that same group of people would think of Steins;Gate as a sort of action film (you feel like everything will work out). That does not detract from the fact that both series are excellent in their own way and definitely a must watch for a true anime fan.
Steins;Gate has both sad and funny parts, just like Oda Nobuna no Yabou. Romance is also a huge part of the anime; without the romance, both anime will not have an interesting plot.
both are pretty confusing at the start but makes more sense as u watch it.
both have supernatural theme
Both have plots involving gadgets like television and mobile phones and are adapted from a video game. Moreover, each series' MC has a girl partner beside them (and the latest one for P4G, Marie). Plus they're both of the mystery genre. And last but not least... ...both have the same excitement and worth to watch!!
Ookami to Koushinryou (Spice and Wolf) and Steins;Gate are similar in being both serious and humorous at times followed by the growing bond of relationships and the troubling events that follow.
although different in the worls they are set in they share a common uniqueness in their style of presentation and the attitutde of being a cult anime
Althrough both made in different way, both are about parallel/virtual worlds.
While the whole plot of Monogatari is not centered about it, both deal with time travel, paralel worlds and the consequnces of small changes which then affect the whole world.
1) Both anime focus on trying to avoid death and being captured, although Steins;Gate executes this differently.

2) Both involve a relationship between tsundere female and male characters.
Both have a dark, mysterious thriller theme. In Denpa teki na kanojo, the main character and some other people searches for the killer. In Steins;Gate, a group of scientists researches about well... steins;Gate. Therefore, both of them includes some form of investigating. There are also no fantasy, magic, supernatural whatsoever elements in either of them too.
Both have characters drawn into a world they are not prepared for.
The grafics of both animes look the same, even the intros realy look alike. In both animes the main characters work hidden for authorities to achieve their purposes.
Both give you the same calmness vibes and then they make something that will make your heart beat. Must watch series to everybody.

similiar animation style, mystery and thriller and various well done characters.
Both series are very computer oriented. They also explore the concept of time manipulation and time traveling.
Psychological thriller with lots of romance. More intense and tragic than Steins Gate, but definitely has a similar romantic and dark vibes as Steins Gate.
They both have a dark story involving time travels.
Two quality sci-fi anime. Whereas Steins;Gate tackles the concept of time-travel, GitS 2: Innocence questions the ethics of making cyborgs/robots, and reveals the vulnerability of AI to hacking and viruses. While SG's plot is slightly stronger, GitS 2: Innocence makes for a more compact viewing, and the graphics are stunning for a 2004 anime. Since GitS 2 is reminiscent of a good old cop story, be prepared for some gunfights and explosions!
They are both very different, but they both contain characters fighting against the fate.
Similar feel, melancholic, character focused. It's science fiction, action and some suspense but all that takes a back seat to the characters' dynamic - again very similar in terms of feel - a combination of scifi and slice of life.
Both are stories dealing with changes in time flow and main characters who notice the changes and their [mostly negative] effects.

C has more of an internal, personal conflict, while Steins;Gate's conflict is more external.
Both involve a person trying to do the impossible to save others. Both have incredible animation and storytelling.
I know this may seem like a bit of an odd recommendation, but I do genuinely think that these shows share a lot in common.
For one, although the humour in Steins; Gate only really lasts for the first few episodes before only appearing in rare cases it's very similar to the sort of humour in Gintama in that the characters are weird and quirky and have really amusing interactions with each other. So whenever there were humorous episodes/moments of Steins; Gate I was reminded of Gintama.
Another way in which these shows are similar is that both of them are really funny when they're supposed to be yet seriously epic and tense and amazing when the serious parts come in. In other words, they both convey two completely contrasting vibes within the same series but pull them both off brilliantly.
Generally, they're both just really great shows that're worth watching. :)
They both feature plots revolving heavily around divergence theory, though in very different ways.
Both are mind blowers,if you want to change your perception of the world watch steins gate.
Both animes have a great amount of psychological thriller, both keep you guessing, both have intellectual methods to counter problems.

If you enjoyed Steins Gate intense twists and suspense, then I assure you Kaiji delievers a lot better.

However if you would like to add some comedy + romance in, Steins Gate is the one.
Both are harem-based stories and the EDs for School Days are done by Haruko Momoi (who voiced Feiris in Steins;Gate) and Kanko Ito (who sings the OP for Steins;Gate)
Shifting realities, trying to save someone you care about . . . Interlude is a 3 ep ova. Too bad because it could have been something quite good given time to evolve. As roriconfan said in his review of Interlude, it was original in its day but has been eclipsed by better titles. Still, if you are hungry for this type of theme, it is an o.k. watch.
Both are about time travel and saving someone. But Steins gate execute this better

It gaves the save vibes of curiosity
It's a surprise this isn't within the top recommendations. The art style is similar, creating an environment of surreal and realism at the same time. Main characters are similar, with both main lead male roles fighting desperately against fate for the person they care about. Menma= Mayuri
Daru= Hasida
Anju= Kurisu
Steins Gate deals with time travel, while Saiyuki deals with demons trying to find out why demons are attacking. Both contain a great story and are worth a watch though.
Both anime rotates on a group of odd friends that seems to have a common goal. A Lot of Angst will be shown. prepare yourself if you want to watch both for they are not really the happy type of anime one usually see.
Both have extremely deep and interesting characters with many sides to their personalities. Both have elements of the unreal while keeping true to a very realistic setting. Both have great endings. Both are instant classics to viewers who are somewhat experienced in watching anime.
Future gadgets lab - check
Time Travel Cellphones - check
Unintended Consequences - check
The main difference is that one has cellphones that email to the past and the other has cellphones that call to the future.
It gives both a clever feeling... and when I watch these anime it let me stay up till morning just to finish this.. well both are good. and also these anime gives off a brainstorming ideas
