THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So, yeah, I'm pretty much in tears.

Okabe...Kurisu....

But, I'm kinda disappointed he didn't break down like he did in the VN; Mayuri tells him he can cry, and...he does XD

OMG...nooo Kurisu!!! Luckily they managed to get a kiss in though. Kurisu's VA is extremely talented and this episode proves it. Shit, this was a fucking sad episode for us Kurisu fans.

She managed to do one more mad scientist laugh... T___T What was she saying right before the world lines switched?


World line went over 1%...Mayuri is safe..but then...

There is no denying that my favorite part is the following,

While clearly having past the 1% line is all that mattered to me in securing Mayuri’s life, I can I am damn happy while the God of Saturn reference here sure gives away the vibes of him being satisfied that the wrongs have been all corrected IMO. While it was refreshing to see Mayuri’s face in the spoiler
That totally gave off the feeling “It’s over Okabe, I am OK” I loved that.

About Okabe x Makise, this being a farewell episode to Makise then I cannot therefore ignore this and should comment on it. First of all it may not appear much but I am glad for the following,

That slap really woke up Okabe and damn glad Makise got guts to do on Okabe. While I did like the fan service of Makise in the spoiler
for it showed her breasts better and figure. From the start Makise’s face here was so serious in thinking while I found it quite interesting that they made a rain droplet drop exactly on the tip of Makise’s nose here. In fact I found that rather strange but Okabe was strange too not trying to peek around. While I laughed at his averting eyes while he denies of liking her body. I liked his proclaiming pose here and of course at that time a nice Makise blush here was great. While for some reasons Makise’s face looks soothing here and of course Okabe was hilarious when Makise threw on him his coat. While I loved the depth things went around when Makise /Okabe are seen here going down towards the incident’s place and Makise’s serious face here proved she is thinking hard about it while Okabe’s serious face here shows he is opposed to Makise’s thinking in thee end rather seriously. It was interesting that they used a scroll of Makise while inserting here and there fragments of how the ED looks with the glass shards and hourglass. While Makise crying in the spoiler
was most likely depressive for many Makise fans.

Loved the way they directed Makise’s face here as she pushes Okabe into leaving her but Okabe’s face was wonderfully serious once again in rejecting the offer of Makise. While I found him running and with the headphones in the spoiler
to be pretty cool poses IMO. While Makise here drenched in the rain was nice for a pose. I swear those Makise flashbacks left a sour taste here on me but that
slap seen from afar here with Okabe was by far very refreshing and Makise’s face here was nice again. While that part of the hug in the spoiler
was very emotional as well as memorable for one due to Makise’s face here. I was very nice to see how Makise’s view of the world lines is here and I have to agree with her thinking of we can be many at different times and thus possible copies of ourselves or past/future selves. Makise’s second blushed face here is the best! Really adorable! The kissing scene in the spoiler
was great for many fans of Makise. I am sure of that one but I was thinking for a moment that they were going to pull something on us by having these shoes lying around here. Like something along the lines of sex.

Aftermath of all this,
  • Well Makise goes back to USA apparently from the spoiler
    while I find that her sudden disappearance was quite alarming at first. I mean how did she vanish so fast suddenly.

  • While the thread color that Makise used to fix Okabe’s coat in the spoiler
    does confirm it to be pink.

  • What impressed me is in the spoiler
    Makise in fact comes back at the last minute after the enter button was pressed which means it’s too late for her but was good about that scene is that she did all of that to confess her love in words and confirm back in words Okabe’s feelings. Now that is amazing indeed.
About thee end, we have Suzuha calling Okabe in the spoiler
her knowing who her father is having been unaffected by any D-mail and tells of preventing WW3. Now that is freaking insane! That is crazy! What will Okabe do with Makise gone and no one knowing her while Suzuha knows Okabe. I wonder but certainly 2 episodes left does bring out the adrenaline.

BTW Images Stitches in the spoiler
there is one of Okabe x Makise hugging that is really nice!

Oh god, that kiss reminded me a bit of Toradora.

Great way to end the episode with a little segway into the final conflict. Stopping WWIII? He's got this.

In my perverted head, they slept together

I was hoping they were going to follow the VN, with a call coming in during the credits, and they did it! Whoo hoo!

Epic episode. I couldn't help but shed a tear. The WWIII came as no surprise, because Mayuri is now alive it doesn't mean SERN/CERN will fail in making a time machine.

Yeah Holy shit! WTF is going on? I am not familiar with this from the VN. Suzuha? Really? I though she was long gone.


It actually happens as the VN credits are rolling, following the "Melt / Cause and Effect" chapter. After Suzuha calls and basically the same conversation between the three happens, then the credits re-wind, we see flashes of all the people who suffered from the d-mails until the screen goes white, and Okabe is...somewhere ;)

Great episode, really sad about Kurisu. ;_;

Two episodes left to stop WWIII and (hopefully) find a way to save Kurisu.

Kurisu's gone... but the mindf**k is NOT OVER YET!!! Two episodes left and what Suzuha tells him at the end is going to change minds forever in this series!!! (No, not really)

WE ARE NOT DONE YET. :D

Anyways, Okarin shares his final moment with Kurisu. What a sad ending.

No. The kiss and the romance WAS the episode (though the end definitely counts as WTF), especially for building up Kurisu's character. Normally i hate any kind of romance in shows like S;G, but they do it perfectly here.
........

I may be a Kurisu fan, i wasn't crying at all this episode but i got pretty choked up. If this show isn't averaging an 8.7 or 1,500 favorites by the end of its run, i will rage.

The romance was what made this episode so good (and part of what makes the anime so great). It's just a strong enough presence in the anime that it makes you care more for the characters (especially in the Mayuri-Kurisu 1% barrier), but not too strong that it takes over the anime and detracts from the rest.

I agree. The scene felt sudden even though the two characters have known each other. The first kiss not subtle at all, awkward and even felt force. But I can forgive them a little because the second kiss is much better time, executed, etc.

Still, the anime was light hearted and alright in episodes 1-13 or so. Then it sort of loses steam in all this save Mayuri and save Kurisu drama. Luckily hopefully world war 3 is exciting. I have a feeling Okarin will see Kurisu again because of that hehe as I'm sure some of you is also guessing at. :)

If there wasn't so many shitty anime out there I would have given steins gates a 6 or 7/10. But I guess it's alright, and watchable though sometimes kind of tiring from the time travelings.

This was a very good episode but I'm getting worried about the true ending. With this random start of "YOU MUST STOP WW3 OMG!" are they really going to be able to finish the series in two episodes?

This so far has been a truly spectacular series, and from what I have seen also strays away minorly from the visual novel.

I shed tears at the end, and as far as the rest is concerned, I should suspect 2 episodes will definitely wrap things up nicely.

This is possibly one of the greatest shows I have seen, at the very least marking in the top ten. Best anime of 2011 at the very least.

I know what you mean lol. I left it on because I noticed it was a different song, and had the video playing in the background while updating my list, then heard the noise and thought "Sigh, is the file corrupted or something?" and went back to the video and saw that it was another scene. :P

and I agree with you Justmiff, it's in my Top 10 and Best Anime of 2011 by a long shot. :P

That was really sad. I feel like watching that episode later just so I can cry. Almost did cry. They made it over 1% but now another problem awaits them. And here I thought the last two episode were going to be alternative endings.

I'm having a lot of trouble composing my thoughts into words here. Damn, that was the episode equivalent of a bomb. I was like, no, they can't top the episode before. And they FUCKING DO. Words can't even describe how I feel about this episode. I had to take a break in the middle to recover.

Saving Kurisu meant the killings of Mayuri(constantly), Suzuha, Rumiho's dad, Moeka & Mr. Braun. Saving Mayuri meant World War 3? wtf? Which one is the right choice? lol. Anyways, I suppose this was a decent episode for most of the development with Okarin & the plot, didn't care too much for the romance of the two, since i'm not fond of Kurisu but w/e.

Also, So fucking happy Suzuha returns next ep :) Last two episode should be extremely good.
