The love in the stories are quite different, both deal with some time travel one more so than the other but both are also very strong emotional "thrillers" if you will. You wont regret it.

Both series have to do with messages on cell phones. In S;G they send messages to the past as a way to 'time travel' while in MN!, a person's fate is written as a diary. Both animes are excellent psychological thrillers.

Cell phones, thriller, drama, and epic action scenes. What else could we ask for more in both of these incredible anime(s)? Both Mirai Nikki and Steins;Gate also incorporates the usage of cell phones although for different purposes. Additionally, there is romance in both series as well as comedy and emotional drama. As the series continues for both anime, we also see various plot twists and cliffhangers that leaves the audience asking "what's next"?

Both animes are related withe the time and situations that must be handled according to time rules, the main characters become sort of "time lord". Nevertheless Steins; Gate has a cientific approach while Mirai Nikki get a supernatural like.

Stories that work on similar science-fictional theories, in which old-styled cell phones play an important role. The protagonists have the ability to change future, but there may be consequences.

Both series have something to do with the future and time travelling. The main character goes to so much trouble he never asked for that you will start to feel sorry for him. The emotions in these series are see deep that you just cannot do otherwise than feel along with the characters. I am really sure that you will enjoy them both.

Both share an impossible romance, hard to endure emotional moments, similar time and space theories, character development and backstory, lots of plot twists, awesome music soundtrack and seiyus (voiceovers). In both case, you end up marathoning the whole thing in a day or two =)

Both animes deal with how the future can be changed through certain actions, the difference is that Steins;Gate is closer to reality, including elements that exist such as "SERN" and "IBN" (that would be the "CERN "and" IBM ") and characters using time machines, since the Mirai Nikki is a game where you can not return to the past but to predict the future, but it is a game of survival and all holders of" Mirai Nikki "have to kill the other carriers.

They both use cellular devices to depicts the future or time travel in steins gate case, they both have very strong plots that make sense for something like time travel being involved, the differences is that Mirai nikki is sooo much more violent I would not recommend it to people who dislike gore.

Both series has a complicated story that involve world line, which make interesting to watch if you like complicated story. really had a brilliant story and confusing if you don't watch it until the last episode.

Both are somehow about survival, but Steins;Gate is more about trying to get everyone alive, Mirrai Nikki is about being the last man standing. Both have sophisticated bonds between characters and unexpected moments. Both involve using mobile phones to something irregular.

-Both protagonists use their cellphones to change the future
-Both protagonists try to change the outcome of a future event to protect their loved ones
-Both include a female and male lead that try to interfere with "fate"
-Both have a complicated plot which plays with your mind

*P/S: Keep in mind that Mirai Nikki is a lot more twisted if you like that aspect.

These animes has one very similar aspect, but with one big difference.

In mirai nikki you know your future, in steins gate you know your past. They know how to change their future in mirai nikki and they know how to change their past in steins gate. But what they both do not know is what will happen if they change it. Even the fact if you make it worse or better is never clear. Of course you can always think that it cannot get any badder.

The other fact is that they know their past and future immediately after that.   read more

Mirai Nikki and Steins;Gate both deal with changing the future, and past. Although one is more action orientated, and one is more scientific. Both contain amazing revelations and keep you on the edge of your seat. Mirai Nikki is more heart pounding and supernatural, but Steins;Gate is more intellectual. Both are deep and most importantly, these shows have AMAZING character development. We can feel their tremendous growth, their motives, and their ambitions. Tearjerker, heartwarming, and immersive, if you've seen one and want an anime that makes you think just as deep, check the other out.

Both series deal with the concept of using "time" to your advantage. While Steins;Gate is about changing the past, Mirai Nikki is about changing the future. Both stories are dark albeit Mirai Nikki pretty much starts out that way while Steins;Gate had a long buildup towards it. Both series have interesting characters and you'll enjoy learning more as the stories progress.

They both involve cellphones as a central plot device as well as complex time travel (this is more evident in S;G than MN). They also have psychological elements and a romantic subplot
report Recommended by razortongue
Anything and everything can change something especially since both use cellphones to alter the future and outcomes of different events of course mirai nikki has a lot more gore and in my opinion Steins;Gate is better but they have similar base plots.

- The female protagonist, one is Yandere one is Tsundere.

They both include the concept of time. However they do it in different ways. Steins;Gate uses time travel while Mirai Nikki uses the concept of predicting the future using diaries. In Steins;Gate, you can also somewhat figure out the future if you travel back in time. They both execute these ideas perfectly, in different ways and they both work.

Changing the future plays a large part in both series. Both the protagonists discover the ability to alter the future and use that power to try and change it to their liking. If you enjoy thrillers that keep you at the edge of your seat you might like both the series.
report Recommended by Sande
Both kind of have to do with time and how changing the past can affect the future.
report Recommended by oreoz673
Both Explain about time the difference the steins;gate is about adult life and Mirai Nikki about kids and his friends.
report Recommended by PrinCEESS
Similarity: Just as Mirai Nikki literally translates to "Future Diary," Steins;Gate is also all about altering the future with information that is known beforehand—and both anime alter the debacles of time through the use of particular phones! Now, what could be more thrilling and exciting than that! I mean, both anime are highly fascinating, not because the future is no longer a secret in both, but because these two shows are captivating in their own right. Suspense, thrills, action, and twists—there’s plenty more where that came from, and you’ll find quite a lot in Steins;Gate.
