Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà Vu is the sequel to the massively popular 2010 anime series Steins;Gate. The plot of this movie directly picks up from the last OVA, which means discussing it is spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the series yet.
To put it simply, Okabe is in a bit of trouble and it comes down to Kurisu to save him. This means that Okabe is absent for the majority of the film, and the focus is shifted onto his love interest, the brilliant young scientist Kurisu. While this is a nice change of pace the beauty of her character really shines with her interactions with Okabe. He is really the piece that holds this series together. His goofy actions and wild rants are what makes the show, and while his absence does make the film suffer a little at times, damn does it also make for some good melodrama. There are so many emotions flying through this film. If you’re a fan of the show you’ll love this film. It is just so sweet and fun with even more cool time travel the series did so well.
I know I’m going on and on about how much i loved it but I only gave it three stars, why? Well, the truth is while I absolutely loved this film I loved it because I love these characters so much. The plot was thin this time around and overall the story was very slow moving with not a lot happening. However all the characters are spot on, the dialogue is hilarious as usual, and the visuals are beautiful. If the story had been a bit better executed then this would have been a perfect movie, but hey, I’m really just happy I got more Steins;Gate.
