I was originally going to start the anime first but I saw this and I couldn’t resist trying it out first.

The art style was much better than I expected, very beautifully drawn with such intricate designs. I always enjoy that incorporated the element of  time into the mix so I enjoyed that part of it very much too. It felt so realistic.

The characters are all very different in their own way and somehow test each other to their limits. I absolutely love the interaction between Okabe and Makise because it really shows that both men and women can work as team in a read more

I have watched the anime first and started playing the game, but since I found all 3 chapters for a very good price, I decided to read this before finishing the game and it sure as heck did not dissappoint.

Before I start talking about it though, I really recommend you watch the anime first, because the manga feels like a very very short version of the anime ( Which is basically a short version of the game, I prefer the anime, but it's true ).

So, first thing I wan't to talk about is the story, it's obviously the same as the anime read more

Manga: Kimi to Boku no Ashiato: Time Travel Kasuga Kenkyuusho
Steins;Gate reminds me of Kimi to Boku no Ashiato because both have time travel plot and a dramatic atmosphere. The concept of cause and effect is featured prominently in both mangas.

Manga: Karakuri Douji Ultimo
Ultimo kinda reminds me of Steins;Gate because it too has a time travel story. Ultimo however is more about action and androids where Steins;Gate has a more "realistic" feel.

Manga: Orange
They both want to prevent something from happening, so they get/send a messege to their past self. Both amazing stories! Though i recommend you watch the anime of steins gate, instead of the manga.

Manga: Let's☆Lagoon
Let's lagoon is about time slip. Steins gate is about going back to the past. Both manga is about going back to the past.

Going back in time and both characters had to re-live the same day over and over again.
