Steins;Gate ended with a shocking finale in its first collection. It was the kind of gut punch that seemed very unexpected thanks to the rather jokey tone of the earlier episodes. However, when dealing with time travel it was never going to be long before corruption and murder were on the cards. The time travel element in this second set of episodes is instantly advanced. No longer is it the quirky idea of simply sending text messages through time, but people can also travel. It may sound as though it is travelling into unoriginal territory, but it’s also quite adept at becoming complex and confusingly woven, without being indecipherable.
