  1. The Science Adventure Series
  2.  
  3.         So, you just finished Steins;Gate, and you're surprised to find out there's more. Or maybe, you're a veteran of the SciADV series, and just want to see what else there may be in the series. Whatever it may be, look no further!
  4.         For those who don't know already, the Science Adventure series, or the SciADV series for short, is a series of visual novels mainly by 5pb., along with other side content such as manga side stories and drama CDs. Do note that while you may have seen the anime adaptations of the main titles, the series revolves around the visual novels. They contain information not found in the anime, and are generally better than the anime adaptations, so it is highly recommended to read them if possible. As such, much of the side content revolves around the visual novels, so there are times when the anime is not enough. Also, these are clean VNs, so there are no sex scenes or full nudity. To read the Chaos;Head visual novel, you will need a Windows computer set into Japanese locale (you can easily google how to do that). Steins;Gate will be getting an official English release soon, so that will not be necessary and it's highly recommended that you buy it!
  5.         One more thing: Reading Steiner is one of the big names to know in the fandom. He is a fan translator and editor whose work can be found in much of the translated material, including the Steins;Gate visual novel, and he knows the series very well. Recently, he has been working with WhyNot subs for some SciADV projects, such as the anime adaptations, so they usually have the best releases. Of course, he's not the only one working on stuff, and everyone deserves credit for the translations and other hard work, such as Blick Winkel, the main translator of the Steins;Gate VN.
  6.         Anyway, that's enough speaking from me. Below is everything I know of in the SciADV series, and the translation status of it. It's not every single thing, as there is quite a lot of content, but it should be all of the translated content and most of the stuff in general. Please, enjoy!

  8. My personal recommended order, although note that this is just my opinion:
  9. Chaos;Head VN -> Noah and Love Chu Chu stuff -> Steins;Gate VN -> Steins;Gate side material (Order doesn't really matter, but note that Bouken no Rebellion, while partially non-canon and kinda meh, formally introduces a character that shows up in some other side material, and be sure to watch the OVA before the movie.) -> Robotics;Notes anime.
