But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences - consequences that Okabe may not be able to handle...

If you liked one of these two animes, you will definitely like the other. The plot involves a lot of mystery and suspense as more and more shocking details are revealed gradually about the way things go in these animes.
Also, the main characters of these animes look pretty alike, both Okabe and Light have the same desire of changing the world, though Okabe seems to be the humorous type whereas Light is more serious about his wish to execute his idea.
While both Steins;Gate and Death Note have top of the line animation, it is the pure genious of the storyline that makes these two anime stand out from the crowd. Each features complex plots that twist and turn leaving you guessing and constantly wanting more.
Aside from the voice actor being the same for both main characters, Steins;Gate and Death Note share a stunningly similair feeling to them. The suspense gets very intense, and there is a hefty load of dialoge and explanation in both titles. The animation is also top quality, so be sure to check both out!
Although Death Note and Steins;Gate have a pretty different atmosphere, they both revolve around a highly intelligent protagonist with a racing mind, attempting to find solutions to problems that have global implications.They are filled with subtleties that further highlight their similarities, if you enjoyed either of these shows I believe that you will enjoy the other.
Both animes have great complex plots with ingrossing mystery, suspense, and action. Steins;Gate has a much more satisfying ending however and a romance sub plot that is superb.
I got a pretty similar feel for watching both of them. Both series revolve around changing the world in some form, and the protagonists share some similarities.
Whilst Death Note is more around the existence of mankind and ridding the world of people who shouldn't exist, Steins;Gate is mainly centered around time travel, and conspiracies which lie within this act. Despite these differences, they both give off a very tense feel and leave the viewer hanging on at the end of each episode to find out more.
Both are about mystery and guessing. You never know what's going to happen next.
Both are animes that make the watcher think and think hard. Maybe even watch a scene over a few times to really wrap his head around the concept.
Despite the intricacies and complications I would actually encourage everyone to try to watch and understand the concepts at play just to get your mind thinking about them because once it gets rolling it's really sets precedent.
both of these shows are very similar in the sense that both are very clever and have lots of dialouge. in both shows it is very essential to remember who knows what and when.
Both of these anime have very similar atmospheres and tension. There is a lot of mystery and suspension as characters make moves that have severe consequences. These characters must be careful and plan their way in a crazy world.
Both Death Note and Steins;Gate have a story with lots of twists and suspense. They leave you theorizing about how something works or what's going to happen next. They both feature an intelligent main character whose train of thought is shared with you throughout the story. Through this way everything is clearly explained eventually.
Both are intelligent and gripping. Steins gate takes a while to warm up, but when it does it'll have you locked in, eager for the next episode.
Playing around with things that can have increadible repercussions on themselves and those around them, and lots of planning and scheming to get what they want. The protagonists are very strong and very persistent, with lots of talent for manipulation. Both very dark and a great watch.
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara High School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Both deal with hypothetical science, and the characters in both with to use special powers and technology to save people and create a better future. Although Madoka Magica is also fantasy-based, they share extremely similar plot events.
Madoka Magica arguably has more "action" in terms of literal fight scenes, while Steins;Gate focusses more on suspense. Both have "dark" moments, and there are certaninly some slightly terrifying scenes, but Steins;Gate also has some funny moments that provide comic relief without compromising the actual plot; Madoka Magica has more heart-warming, affectionate scenes to establish a balance through the implementation of positive thoughts and emotions.
Both series revolve around people obataining what they desire by altering the past in Steins;Gate, or making wishes in Madoka's case. However, the people who gain what they desired end up losing something equally as precious in the process. Both series has a character who is desperately trying to defy the harsh fate and bring the world into a bright future.
Madoka is more action and fantasy based, while S;G is a realistic sci-fi series that is suspense based. However, they are both excellent anime, so if you liked one you should enjoy the other.
Despite their drastically different genres and animation styles (both very good, just different), both of these shows feature a well written epic struggle against fate with characters fighting to change destiny.
Both of the anime share a sense of hypothetical sciences. Although Steins;Gate goes much more in depth. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica has more physical action, whereas Steins;Gate has more mental action. Both of the animes had great character bonds. At the start Mahou Shoujo appears much more childish than it really is, it's gruesome nature appears early on in the anime but not instantly. Steins;Gate gets to the more mentally unsettling nature around the end of the first season. In my personal opinion of course, actions happen before both timelines that others could percieve to be the suspense.
Both are about fighting fate to protect the ones you love. Both will make you cry to see how deep their friendship and love is.
Series are both staples of their respective genre, they deal with deep psychological issues without being overwhelming in the first episodes rather they ease you into it.
Both are classics and I would recommend either of them to a complete begginer or an anime connoisseur.
Takumi is a reclusive otaku who wants nothing more than to be left alone to play online games and watch anime. He only attends the minimum necessary to pass his classes, and rarely leaves his cramped room except to purchase the newest figurines. One evening, while Takumi is chatting online with his friend "Grim," a stranger called "Shogun" joins the channel and, after "Grim" leaves, posts a series of disturbing photographs depicting a man impaled to a wall with metal stakes. The following day, Takumi is horrified when he wanders into an alley and once again sees Shogun’s images – but this time, the gruesome scene is reality. From then on, Takumi sees the world through a new set of eyes; imaginary delusions meld with reality, and he isn't sure who he can trust. With suspicions and confusion at every turn, Takumi must struggle to determine what's going on - but most importantly, whose eyes are those eyes?
If you liked Chaos;head or steins,gate, you'd like the other because the plot and style is familliar and it's the same touch on both
They're both made by the same company, but although they share absolutely different story aspects, it's good to check both of them out since the characters, while somewhat different can be related to each character personality wise.
Both series have similar style, initially confusing shortly become great shows making you yearn for more.
Both series take place in the same universe, and to be specific Steins;Gate takes place a year after the incidents in Shibuya. Although, in the anime there aren't many references, in the game there are a number of times that the NewGen incidents are mentioned.Moreover , both series play an important role in the third anime produced by the same studios and that takes place in the same universe, Robotic;Notes in which there are references and even characters that reappear from Steins;Gate and Chaos;Head.In conclusion, if you loved Steins;Gate and you're interested to know more about the characters and the world they live in, not to mention to become aware what kind of characters coexist in the same universe, then you ought to watch Chaos;Head.
Strange things happen to some what regular people and they become something more that they didn't think could happen. It also does hurt it that the game version of both were writen by the same people.

Durarara!! and Steins;Gate share quite a few interesting themes:
If you liked any of these aspects in one series, you'll most likely also enjoy the other.
Also, there's the "same voice actor" bonus: Mamoru Miyano and Hana Kanazawa.
DRRR!! and Stein both start out as fairly light-hearted explorations of new experiences, but, as hinted, slowly evolve into a much darker and more serious overtone.
It should be noted that Stein is much more of a mindrape than DRRR!!, but at the same time, DRRR!! has a fair bit more pure, ridiculous awesomeness than Stein.
If you like the suspense and cant get enough of Steins;Gate then you are going to love DR3. Giving a little bit of thought in trying to figure out problems of the characters in DR3 makes it similar to Steins;Gate, watching this is something that you wont regret.
I absolutely loved both of these animes. If you enjoyed the connections between the characters slowly surfacing in Durarara!! then you should give Steins;Gate a go.
Both animes are fairly intricate, and I recommend them both if you're looking for a great plot with some humor thrown into the mix.
Steins;Gate and DUrarara both have mystery to some extent you are unable to predict what is going to happen next and thats the reason I love them both
Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village.

Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
Both Steins;Gate and Higurashi are about people fighting with fate, to prevent death of their loved ones.
There are more common themes, but I'll avoid spoilers.
Basically, characters challenging and or trying to escape "fate", and "destiny", and plots alluding to the "Butterfly Effect". Extremely similar.
Higurashi and Steins;Gate are also a great match, because of the amount of suspense in both. Friends goofing around in a fixed location, which suddenly turns into a twisted game of thrill is the backbone of both titles. I definitely got equal amount of wtf-feelings during watching these, so I can warmly recommend.
If you liked either anime you would like the other because they are both about characters trying to break the cycle of time, fate, and death to save the people they love.
Additionally both are some of the most suspensful anime EVER.
