I ended up reading Steins;Gate, but after I had finished it, I wasn't sure which one I should read next. When searching for Steins;Gate cartoons, I found all these different parts and I started reading Bokan no Rellion and it looks like it's the same story, but from a different character's perspective. So what about the other parts? Are they the same story too or are they sequels and is there a specific order I should use to get the most out of the story?

  • Steins;Gate
  • Steins;Gate: Bōkan no Rebellion
  • Steins;Gate: Onshu no Braunian Motion
  • Steins;Gate: Shijō Saikyō no Slight Fever
  • Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Sweets Honey
  • Steins;Gate: Aishin Meizu no Babel
  • Steins;Gate!

    Good question; I've been wondering, myself. There's also "Hen'i Kuukan no Octet", "Hiyoku Renri no Future Honey", "Hoshikuzu no Droplet", and "Mugen Enten no Arc Light". And then there's all the novel spinoffs, too... – senshin Jul 4 '14 at 21:15
  • By "reading Steins;Gate" do you mean a Light Novel of the Visual Novel? – Memor-X Jul 6 '14 at 22:12
  • @Memor-X With "reading" I meant the comics. If the novels are translated into English, I might consider reading them too, although it isn't quite sure in what they should be read. – Peter Raeves Jul 7 '14 at 12:32

  • Could you add where you found this list? – Peter Raeves Oct 15 '14 at 14:47

    @Peter Raeves, I'm sorry I didn't see your comment until now. Some of this list comes from the Japanese Wikipedia pages and the Steins;Gate Wiki but I compiled it myself from a fair number of Japanese and English-language websites since I didn't find a singular comprehensive list (it took me well over an hour) – seijitsu Jun 11 '15 at 12:09

I've only watched the anime so I can't 100% confirm, but:

Wikipedia says all of those mangas are side-stories. Most of them are the story from a certain character's point of view, and I believe one is material from a fandisc. Steins;Gate! is a spinoff comedy.

So pretty much, whatever order you feel like.
