When someone you hold dear is met the fate of losing their life, and you have the ability to go back in time to that moment to try and save them, do you have what it takes to do it? In Steins;Gate, science is used to create a time a machine, rewinding the clock and changing the course of fate and time by saving the one life (or two) In Erased, it is a slightly more chaotic as there is no science involved, only a lingering sense of guilt and the ability to rewind the clock before a drastic event occurs.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi like Steins Gate is about the main guy who has the ability to time-travel to the past to save someone dear to him. He ends up also having to save another girl from a tragic fate which he has romantic feelings for. Both anime start with a light mood and change drastically to a darker tone, dealing with the constant struggle of the hero endlessly trying to change the outcome of the future by changing the past. Also, If you watch Steins Gate the movie, you will find extra similarities with BDGIM.
Really enjoyable animes with lot of mystery,   read more

Both of them are in a Dark theme with a wish to save someone in the past, To Fix a problem that happened in either present or past.

I suppose its tiny bit of a spoiler, but both shows deal with time travel a fair bit. In particular, the main hero of both shows travels to the past for a chance to save the life of someone dear to him, while unraveling the mystery of what is happening around him. Both shows also contain elements of romance.

The pacing of the shows is a bit different, as Boku Dake goes a bit faster, and the methods of time travel are different as well. S;G has more slice of lifey moments, and the main characters are fairly different. Theyre both outcasts of a   read more

I found that when I first started watching this anime, it instantly reminded me of Steins;Gate. The concept of going back in time and altering the past, and also with the incidents involving the protagonists I found were similar in a sense. Both have the male protagonist going back in time. This leads them to the future to see how what they have changed in the past has affected future events. However, I believe that Erased is more emotional and much shorter than Steins;Gate.

Travels back in time to save dear ones and the plot makes you grip for more.

Both involve time travel and heavily feature attempting to change the past for a better outcome. Erased focuses more on mystery and the changes Satoru makes as he relives his life while Steins;Gate centres more around the close relationships between Okabe and his lab assistants.

Both of the stories revolve around time traveling concept. Both of the MCs are people who want to fix his past mistakes into creating a new timeline where the happy ending exists.

Both animes consist in saving important people to the main character, it is done in a way to make them understand better the mechanics of their ability to time travel.
In each anime is presented a mystery about the murder, they unravel the mystery throughout the anime presenting new characters and linking the pieces of the puzzle together.
They have extremely amazing history and direction, worth watching and recommending even for non-anime fans, the only bummer for non anime-watchers would be Okarin's personality (Steins;Gate main character) who is an outgoing character that yells and make jokes most commonly observed in japanese midia.

Both shows involve similar time travel mystery.
They are similar in many more ways that I cannot describe, yet I can assure you that you won't regret watching Steins;Gate if you liked Boku dake ga Inai Machi.
Don't let the first 6-8 episodes of S;G let you down, it gets better, trust me.

Dude goes back in time to save chick.

Erased has a very visual novel-like atmosphere which is why people are reminded of Steins;Gate, an anime actually based on a VN. The colours used in both shows are quite drab and dark, with a similar atmosphere of desperation. Both shows have an adult cast.

Aside from the main point re: time travel and chick-saving; the characters, their interactions, and the themes are all very different.

Steins;Gate and Boku dake ga Inai Machi (Erased) both contain elements of time travel (Steins;Gate more than Erased). Both have really good characters and animation, both have a very interesting and engaging story and really get you invested in whats going on. I highly recommend this!

This show is frail in comparison to the time travel in steins;gate. In stiens;gate the main character has a personality while retaining the basic urge to save his friends and loved ones. Yeah, you can do that with a personality. Also the time travel itself is the premise and the plot. In Erased time travel is just a tool the main character uses to attempt to capture the killer. In stiens;gate the killer is not obvious and it's very hard to tell when the plot twist will be. Meanwhile in Erased it was so obvious who was the killer. In fact I didn't think   read more

Time travel & try to change destiny

ON the surface these shows are very similar. There is time travel and the goal of saving people. One of these shows is consistent with its plot and characters (Steins Gate) and one is not (ERASED). One hints at things slowly and one clumsily hits you with blunt clues. I could make this list forever. But at the end of the day I recommend Steins Gate for fans of Erased and not the other way around.
report Recommended by smackells
Steins;Gate and Boku dake ga Inai Machi revolve around the central idea of trying to save a life of someone dear to you by going back in time, only to find out that more problems and challenges have arisen. Steins;Gate explores more in depth into the time-travel theory and where the ability to time travel came from, thus the longer than usual 24 episodes while Boku dake ga Inai Machi takes are more simpler and easy-to-digest approach; just 12 episodes, on the time travel theme to take preventative measures to resolve a death and change the future.

Steins;Gate is also about time travel, the consequences of changing the past and dealing with it's given repercussions.

Both show also deal with a lot of mystery that affect both the past and present.

If you want more, Robotics;Notes is set in the same "universe" as Steins;Gate, albeit a very different type of anime yet 'affected' by the events of Steins;Gate.

While we're at it, check out Chaos;Head as well.

These three in chronological order are:

Chaos;head
Steins;Gate
Robotics;Notes

Take it or leave it, your call.

Either way, I've personally enjoyed these selections.

Both animes series are based on the ''Time travelling'' subject.
In both of the series the main character is trying to save someone dear to him.
There are major differences in the two animes , like Steins;Gate has a comedy side too and it's not as serious as BDGIM.
BDGIM is more emotional and dramatic.

Both of the series are worth watching , If you liked one of them you will like the other one for sure.

Both include the theme of time travel, only difference being Boku dake ga Inai Machi is based on supernatural, whereas Steins;Gate is based on science. Boku dake ga Inai Machi is currently airing, showing another theme of having to go back in time to save someone.

- Both revolve around the same idea of someone trying to change the future to prevent a murder
- Both have protagonists that originally look bland but are actually great characters

Both animes are about time travel. Fujinuma Satoru and Okabe Rintarou time travel to past to save someone. Both endure failure and had to travel through time in several times to achieve their goal. This allows them to experience multiple timelines.

Both series feature spirited protagonists, that might feel isolated from those around them, but are determined to the right thing and fix their mistakes - this may sound clichéd, but they both have enough quirks and enough charm to keep them interesting. From a genre perspective - both feature time travel and the idea of alternate worlds and realities, and the idea of preserving relationships across these boundaries. The artwork, particularly the backgrounds, is something definitely worth noting, as there as some stunning scenes throughout. Steins;Gate has more "lighter" moments, perhaps due to the added length, but both series definitely have plenty of suspenseful moments   read more

Both anime series involve a male protagonist going back in time to prevent a death. The difference is that one involves the use of technology to intentionally time travel and in the other, time travel is a super natural ability that the protagonist has little control over. I highly recommend both series and am confident you will enjoy both series' unique approach to stories involving time travel.

Changing the future by fixing the mistakes done in the past plays a huge part in both series. In both anime, the main character tries to save someone important to them by traveling to the past. Both shows also keep you at the edge of your seat as you follow the protagonist on their mission and see the consequences of the actions and mistakes done by them.

Steins;Gate and Boku dake ga Inai Machi revolve around the concept of the butterfly effect, where one action causes a chain effect into the future. Both protagonists continually travel back in time to fix the main cause and to fix their futures from something both Okabe and Satoru don't want to have. Both are great fiction animes with Steins;Gate more on a technical, machine level and Boku dake ga Inai Machi with a simple ability.
report Recommended by Butterstroke
Time traveling, basically.

The concept is a bit different but it's definitely a very good one.

The whole repetitive thing of overdoing things over and over again is the same in this anime, that's why you will feel some sort of good connection to this anime too if you like Boku dake ga Inai Machi.

Why? because they both have deep emotional story lines. Though both have a slow start if you get past the first few episodes, you will be entering a battlefield of emotions. I cried watching both, and so will you. Enough said!

Another time-travel theory is present in this series, though compared to Steins;gate, Boku dake ga Inai Machi's time-travel occurs as a natural phenomenon instead of actually (and specifically) manipulating time.

Both protagonists are on a quest to change the future by saving their loved ones, and their journey of fighting the evil ones (Criminal in ERASED, Organization in S;g) from being successful in their evil deeds.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi is a very confusing anime and it isn't very easy to figure out whats going on,similar to Steins;Gate where your mind gets blown when the main character discovers something important. This isn't the only reason it is similar to Steins;Gate as the main character in Boku dake ga Inai Machi gets sent backwards in time,with his previous memories when a death or negative things happen around that he has to prevent.

A powerful and pur love story! This affirmation is perfect for those anime.

Those anime are REALLY similar but they stil have their original and exciting story involving time traveling and friendship.

Steins;Gate and Erased share a lot of similar traits:
- both involve time travel (though it's explained more thoroughly in Steins;Gate)
- MC travels back in time to save a loved one
- both have a similar atmosphere/feel
- intriguing plot and keeps you on edge

Even though Erased is more of a mystery anime than Steins;Gate, I found myself frequently drawing similarities between the two shows. If you liked the feel and premise of one anime, you will most likely enjoy the other

In both cases the protagonist returns to the past, trying to stop something from happening in the future, while struggling to cope with the fact that he is the only one that knows of this future event. Both protagonists are also seemingly helpless when it comes to action, so their struggle is completely intellectual.
