Beginning with the obvious, both Re:Zero and Steins;Gate were animated by the same studio, White Fox and both main protagonists have time traveling related abilities.

Now for the juicy stuff, both Okabe and Subaru are quite different from the usual anime protagonist and aren't meant to be self-inserts for viewers. They both must overcome obstacles to save the ones they love and both feature thrilling story lines and engaging characters that break the mold of most anime tropes like Tsunderes (with Steins;Gate's Kurisu) and Moé characters (Re:Zero's Rem). The authors want you to see the MCs go through very difficult (and sometimes gory) hardships   read more

Time traveling is always a popular theme for anime.But it is risky because it can cause a lot of plot holes.Then again those two anime don't have a problem about that at all.Both mc have similar goal and reason for using time travel again and again.Steins;Gate hasn't got any real fight scenes but it has much philosophical approach about time travel.Both are done by the same studio so animation style is similar too.

Both anime revolve mostly around an ordinary guy who does his best to protect those he cares about, no matter how many times he has to do it:
- Both Guys who are suddenly caught in a spiral of disastrous events
- Both have something to do with the Butterfly Effect/Travelling back in time
- Both MC's are pretty powerless and non-significant at first
- Both MC's will stop at nothing to save those they care about

Essentially similar concept. Re:Zero is basically Steins;Gate meets KonoSuba.

Restarting over and over, both have a great story if you like twists and turns, and both make you feel like your the protagonist.

Main character desperately tries to save the people that he loves while trying to repair his mistakes during his previous attempts. Both of the animes are getting more and more psychological as the main character tries to do what he can to make things work. Both are incredibly thrilling and suspenful.

Re:Zero and Steins;Gate featured an MC with similiar power: time travel. And the 'time travel' aspect of these series isn't just some cool sci-fi material, it has a little dark element attached to it: 'death'. Both MC tried to save people around them from the hand of the reaper, they also touched upon the psychological aspect of the MC as the only one who remember the events from before the timeline is altered. Also, both series are produced by the same studio and have fantastic, fluid animation.

Despite opposite settings, both of these series feature time looping as the main plot device and strong character development, plus similar themes of selflessness and looking forward rather than behind.

Both of these animes have the same theme of going back in time to save a life, but in one the person has to die in order to change time while the other simply has to microwave a burrito. Other than that the series as a whole seems completely different.

Unlike Re:Zero, Steins;Gate a well-written time-travel thriller. If you think Re:Zero is good, then you clearly haven't watched Steins;Gate or Madoka Magica.

“Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu” and “Steins;Gate” have the concept of going back in time. Problems are always arising for the main characters. Whenever they think they can catch a break, something around them has to go wrong. Furthermore, their mental state will be affected from seeing the people around them suffer. With that being said, these anime can have a very dark and serious tone. While “Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu’s” storyline is set in a fantasy world, “Steins;Gate” focuses on a real life aspect.

In Steins;Gate the mc makes a time leap machine and the plot becomes saving his friend by time leaping. In re:zero, The mc also uses time leap to save his friends. In the both series, they need to figure the way how to save people. In rezero, by triggering specific events, meanwhile in Steins;Gate by redoing his actons.

If you've seen them both then you'll know this is an obvious comparison.
Slight spoilers for story premises here, but nothing that would ruin either for you if you haven't seen them yet.

Both of these Anime are by White Fox, and have more or less the same story structure and premise: The main character has the power to rewind time somehow, and this interferes with the natural order of things. As such, they lose people they care about, and end up going back again and again, growing increasingly desperate, as they try to get the perfect result.

Both shows have a very similar concept around them. Steins;Gate and Re:Zero are both produced by the same studio, White Fox. The main protagonists of both shows can act like goofballs at times, but become serious and dependable when it comes to helping others out. I don't want to say too much as it's best to go into both of these shows blind and I definitely recommend both of them. Steins;Gate and Re:Zero are both fantastic shows produced by White Fox though Re:Zero is very controversial at times. This is only my opinion though.

The vibe from both series are very alike; intense, hilarious and much more. The main characters are also very similar; they are not afraid to speak their mind to express themselves, and they often go out of their way to help other people. What's more similar is that both series deal with time-travel where the main character is able to go back into time to make better decisions to avoid similar incidents of occurring again.

Even though ReZero and Steins;Gate have a different setting (Fantasy - Sci-Fi), they have a lot in common when it comes to the story and characters.
- Both ReZero and Steins;Gate revolve around time travelling.

- Similar protagonists, they both are often goofy and in a light-minded mood, but when the time comes, they become serious and strong-minded.

In both anime the main character starts from the beginning each time he fails to save his beloved person, both see them die again and again in multiple ways and that experience takes its toll, They both lose hope at one point but someone gives them the courage to not stop and continue.

The two main protagonists, Okabe and Subaru, work with time whether it is through a machine or an ability (There is more similarities with this. However, I will leave it a surprise.). The story revolves around take action and changing the future, otherwise known as the Butterfly Effect. Both animes are made by the same studios and are enjoyable to watch after the first few episodes.

The male protagonists are very alike, as they share the traits of being humorous, caring, energetic, and emotional. The female protagonist believes in the male protagonist, which is something both anime share as well. Both shows have a lot of humor now and then, and they also have mysteries that the protagonists have to solve through thorough investigation. In the end, I honestly think that if you loved Steins;Gate, you most likely will love Re: zero as well. Not only that, they are from the same studio. The only difference between the two is the setting and the difference darkness between the two anime. Re:   read more

Before you click away because you're thinking, 'this can't be an accurate recommendation', just hear me out. There's only one thing that these two have in common: redo parts of life to save the ones you love. It sometimes may seem impossible to keep on going, but keep trying and don't give up - this is the core message in both.
So if you like these kind of underlying messages (like I did), you won't regret watching them.

Rather than being able to time-travel, Re:Zero gives Subaru(Main character) the ability to "reset" time up to a particular point as soon as he dies.

Similar to Steins;Gate, the main protagonists are both thrown in the dilemma of going through trials again and again to obtain the desired result. However, this journey of trying to get the best situation affects their character and drains them of their "Humanity" at some point.

Events will unfold as their journey continues.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu is probably the most popular anime released during the summer of 2016. From watching both Steins gate and Re:zero I've noticed how both the Main Characters go back in time some how to stop current events from happening. Steins Gate is by far the most confusing anime I've every seen, even episode 1 was very confusing, but everything makes sense when they explain it around the middle part of the series.

Both share a high level of comedy and writing. But what really links these shows are the main characters. They start off with a (seemigly) happy MC surrounded by friends they care a lot for. Then said friends die. Again. And Again. And Again. Inability to change the past leads to worsening mental states as they begin fighting not only fate, but themselves as well. In Steins;Gate this only happens in the second half of the show; in Zero, it's the whole thing.
