As a fan of Steins;Gate, I decided to watch these shorts. Before you watch these shorts, there are a few things to keep in mind. These shorts are advertisements, meant to show people how IBM's "cognitive computing" initiative might enhance people's lives in the future. The 4 shorts use the Steins;Gate characters and universe to show different scenarios and how the "cognitive computing" (represented by an Oopa with a cutesy voice) help solve problems.

If you can get past the fact that these are advertisements, and you are a fan of S;G, there are some very enjoyable moments and interactions in the approximately 12 minutes of read more

Although I'm still not sure why IBN sponsored this, I'm really glad that they did.

To put it bluntly, these short episodes show us Stein;s Gate re-imagined as a slice-of-life anime.

Steins;Gate: The IBM Ad is a series of four four-ish minute long OVAs created as a collaboration with IBM to explain the impact their Cognitive Computing (AKA advanced weak AI) could have on daily life.

Mayuri brings in a Upa she brought that have Cognitive Computing on board and they proceed to use it for a variety of mundane yet entertaining things.

The story is weak, but it doesn't do anything to hurt Steins;Gate's great plot. Its place in the timeline is clear, but its read more

Steins;Gate: Soumei Eichi no Cognitive Computing is comprised of four 3 minute episodes of Steins;Gate parodies

Here, we get to see our beloved characters go about doing daily routines like cooking, buying clothes and goofing off :P

The 12 minute long specials is unexpectedly sponsored by IBM haha

Being a Steins;Gate fan the first time I laid eyes on Kurisu I mean... the anime.

I'm pretty damn satisfied with this as it sorta gives me a healing moment, away from Steins;Gate and you know... allows my heart to prepare for Steins;Gate 0 without actually drifting away to other animes

This shorts also sorta brings about the fan service everyone read more
