    Steins;Gate





    Created by; Nitro+ (Chaos;Head, Togainu no Chi, Phantom of Inferno)
    Studio; White Fox (Katanagatari)
    Character Design; Huke (Black Rock Shooter), Kyuuta Sakai (Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, Ichigo Mashimaro)
    Directors; Hiroshi Hamasaki (Texhnolyze, Shigurui),
    Genres; suspense, mystery, sci-fi
    Airing Date; Now!


    Do I need to watch Chaos;Head to understand this?

    Absolutely not. The events of Steins;Gate merely take place a year after what happened in Chaos;Head, but on the whole they have no relation to each other.
    Is the VN translated?
    It's being worked on.

    The Chaos;Head VN was pretty good but the anime adaptation was pure garbage we'll see how it will be with this one

    While the synopsis seems far from the genre it depicts, I'll be looking forward to the series. I've heard about it before and it typically has gotten a pretty good consensus.

    ^ Wut? Are you talking about anime or the VN? Because the anime was utter shit and whoever told you otherwise is a liar.

    Considering how fucking awful Chaos;Head was I'll go into this with less than a grain of salt if Madhouse are the ones animating this, which is weird since Madhouse is usually pretty solid. At the very least, if Ishiyama Takaaki is still directing this then I'll know it'll probably be crap.

    ^ Oh, okay lol my bad. Yeah, I've heard both Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate were great VNs. I've actually wanted to play Chaos;Head VN to get the nasty taste of the anime out of my mouth. Do you know if it has an English Patch?

    Nothing has been confirmed yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if a translation was announced by Jast soon. You know, with their partnership with Nitro+, it would make perfect sense.

    I finally got around to watching the opening for the VN, and it definitley looks impressive. I updated the synopsis in the opening post a bit too, mainly about how the protagonist is a university student who calls himself a mad scientist. So straight off the bat, he's a hundred times more useful than Chaos;Head's Takumi ever was. :lmao

    I'm unaware of any updates since the teaser's been posted on the official website. In regards to source material, I don't know anything but RetroElectro should be able to tell you if there'll be anything in this that may hold your interest.

    Some said it already. As long as Madhouse does not get this and give the same treatment as Chaos;Head, then I'm sold.

    You mean in comparison to huke's versions or the original sketches (like RM posted above)?


    I don't really like the anime versions. Like Chris for example. She had such an awesome design, but she loses a lot of her mystique in the transfer. Her anime self looks so much duller. I remember saying the same thing of the HotD character designs... I still need to learn to accept the fact that characters lose some vitality when they become animated :/

    But yeah, even though I find this style of character design weak, this is a series with the potential to make that a non-issue :3
