KAC Review : Steins;Gate Movie

Steins;Gate :負荷領域のデジャヴ 

Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà vu

Production House : White Fox
Directed by : Kanji Wakabayashi
Based on : Visual Novel by Nitroplus and 5pb

'No one knows what the future holds. That's why its potential is infinite.' - Rintarou Okabe (from Steins;Gate)


The movie is set one year after the events in the anime series. After going through what had seemed like, a never ending journey, Okabe Rintarou had landed in the Steins;Gate world line where neither Mayuri Nor Makise Kurisu are dead. A world where SERN is not in power. Makise Kurisu Returns to Japan for her seminar and comes to attend a reunion with the others. During the party on the roof, Rintarou starts to feel the side effects of his endless time travel, more pronounced than ever before. And that marks the true beginning of this  thrilling, romantic and beautifully heart-warming epilogue.

MAL Rank : 27

KAC rating : 3/5

Thoughts : In my personal opinion, the movie is not as brilliant as the series itself, but it does justice to the story non the less. 

Worth watching? : Yes. However, I will suggest people who are going to watch this, not to expect a lot out of it.
