Anime Movies - Steins;Gate Fuka Ryouiki no Deja vu

Steins;Gate anime series was unique and somewhat complex, but I really enjoyed it. It was amazing how they managed to incorporate science, fun and normal life into one series. After the anime series I expected nothing less from this movie and as expected it didn't disappoint. 
It's been a while since the series ended, so it was nice to see all the familiar characters once again. I really missed them all, especially Okabe and Kurisu ^^ You can never get tired of watching those two bicker LOL
Time travel can be very problematic and confusing. Memory leaks from previous time lines seem to be causing unpredictable behavior problems. Well, when you mess with time, there are bound to be some consequences.
If you don't watch this movie closely from beginning to the end, you'll probably get lost along the way. At first things were pretty simple, but then again, things are never what they look like in Steins;Gate. After some time, it got complicated rather quickly with a pretty big dose of emotions and seriousness.
The animation was pretty much the same as the anime series which means really nice character animation with details and very well done backgrounds as well.
Honestly, Steins;Gate is just that kind of anime which you have to see for yourself to like it or hate it. Give it a try if you're a newbie. If you know the series and have seen it, you'll enjoy this movie.

Genre: sci-fi, thriller, mystery

The film takes place one year after the events of the anime series. After going through a painstaking journey across multiple 'World Lines' due to the invention of 'D-Mail', text messages that can be sent to the past, Rintarou Okabe has assumedly landed in the "Steins Gate" World Line, in which none of his friends would have to die and a future ruled by SERN due to the invention of a time machine no longer exists. However, Rintarou soon starts feeling the side effects of his constant time travelling across multiple World Lines, which soon builds up and causes Rintarou to suddenly vanish from existence, with only Kurisu Makise, the girl who he had saved thanks to his efforts, remembering him through déjà vu. It is now up to Kurisu to find a way to get Rintarou back.
