If you’ve been paying attention to the Otakon guest announcements, then you know that J. Michael Tatum will be at the convention. Following the English Dub World Premiere on Saturday, July 28th at 8pm there will be a Q&A session with the cast. While we’ll have other giveaway items at our booth, you’re going to want to get there early and pick up one of these awesome Steins;Gate posters (see above) while supplies last. That way you’ll be prepared for cast autographs!

UPDATE: Otakon has also announced Trina Nishimura as a guest. Trina plays the voice of MAKISE and will be joining our Q&A session after our screening on Saturday.

series synopsis:

The microwave is a time machine. Okarin proved it. The self-anointed mad scientist nuked bananas into some gelatinous version of the future. Or maybe it was the past. Doesn’t matter. No one thought he could do it, but he did it anyway. He sent text messages through time to people he knew. To his friends. Some of them female. Pretty. He should have been more careful. He should have stopped. Tampering with the time-space continuum attracts unwelcome attention. Clandestine organizations of nefarious origins take notice. SERN. Always watching. Okarin knows; he can feel their eyes. That’s why he started the top secret Future Gadget Lab. To stop them. You should join. We get to wear lab coats, and it’s dangerous. Danger is exciting because it’s deadly. The microwave is a time machine.

Steins;Gate is a surreal viewing experience that’s an absolute must watch for all fans of sci-fi. According to Anime Vice, “It’s like somebody taped an episode of The Big Bang Theory over a copy of Donnie Darko.”

And now a first look at the dub with our official Steins;Gate trailer!
