Import Review: Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryoiki no Deja Vu
by Elliot Gay

I doubt anybody ever expected 5pb.'s science adventure game, Steins;Gate, to ever reach the level of popularity that it did. While the original game has yet to see an official English release, in Japan it's playable on pretty much every gaming platform available. Hell, I'd argue that the iOS version is the best way to experience Steins;Gate.

The anime adaptation produced by White Fox is where most English speaking fans got their first taste of the franchise. While not exactly bursting at the seams with production values, the anime series did a good job of taking what was special about Steins;Gate and bringing it to life within the limited TV anime structure. 

With the original game having blown up into a multimedia franchise, it's not shocking that it ended up getting a sequel film.

This begs the question: was a sequel even necessary in the first place? Perhaps not.

I'm damn glad we got one though.

Jormungand looks more than a little bit like Black Lagoon

That's definitely not a bad thing if you're looking for more Black Lagoon-ish stuff. The lady looks like a young Balalaika, but I've yet to see this show's version of Rock and Revy. The kid with the assault rifle's still a bi...
