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 ).

The Steins Gate manga has an abridged story from the original story (visual novel) therefore, some details and plot developments are lost but still remains a good story with emotional moments.

The art is good, the character design is different but nice and keeps its essence. The most important moments are very well captured and manage to convey the emotion of the scene.

In short I think it is a good alternative to see the story again if we have already played the visual novel or watched the anime (a great adaptation).totally recommended and I give it a 10/10 because I love Steins Gate.

The feeling of the “true” Steins;Gate experience is felt very rarely in the manga. Experiencing the anime helps build some appeal to the manga, but that just shows the manga is not sufficient. The manga’s writing feels like a watered down version of the ...
