I recently looked up some info about Steins;Gate and there appears to be a new series out already which ended airing in September 2018, called "Steins;Gate 0". Considering there are now a bunch of OVAs and alternative cuts, it's not super easy to figure out where the "full" experience is.

So what is the recommended order to watch the Steins;Gate set of animated works now?


I think like Monogatari, this is also a bit opinion-based question. However, going with release order is fine.

I would not recommend the chronological order for the first-timers. You will miss the references and %100 spoiled if you look things like episode discussions.

By nature, Steins Gate 0 tries to explain a plot point you already know. You can watch OG Steins Gate and call it a day but by watching 0 you can get more of it if you want. It's like good old manga/anime discussions. You like the anime then read the manga to get more of it.

Now considering that I think you should watch with this order:

Steins Gate >> Steins Gate: Kyoukaimenjou no Missing Link >> Steins Gate 0

As for the movie and Ova well, you can watch them after OG Steins Gate or after 0 but for me, after watching OG Steins Gate is better.


Chronological order :

Steins gate (watch until EPs 22) > Steins gate 23b > Steins gate 0 > Steins gate 23 24 25 > Steins gate ova > steins gate movies
