If you had a time machine and had the chance to go back in time and do something differently, would you do it? The anime Steins;Gate explores this question in-depth and is the overarching theme of the entire series. Every action has a reaction and every action has consequences. An action that seems small and inconsequential at the time ripples into something much bigger and gravely serious much later. Steins;Gate is like a cautionary tale of why it’s never a good idea to mess with the very fabric of time itself, as it’s like a tapestry––undo one single thread and the whole thing comes apart at the seams until you’re left with trying to desperately piece it back together again, one single stitch at a time.
