Are you ready for more timeline shenanigans? Steins;Gate is a more mature series than Kimi no Na wa, but both feature organic relationships between characters - both romantic and platonic - as well as a deceptively pleasant start.

Both has mind-blowing story full with twists and turns, comedy, and also tear-jerking. And both end with bittersweet feeling that makes you want more.

This a romantic story where the characters switch bodies and there is time travel. It is an excellent movie. You will never forget!

However, it is the relationships between the main characters across both titles that create the strong emotions that keep people coming back to these two titles.
