I actually feel a little sad after watching this because i just remembered how awesome this show was and that it ended.
Okabe getting arrested left and right(american airport people take no jokes) , Kurisu with mirror sunglasses and Mayuri with sleepy look and a Christmas hat where big kodac(screencap) moments.
Nice closure there to those who may have felt unsatisfied by the ending although i kind of thought it was nice how it was cut right after he found her. From the best possible couples in anime.
It was also nice how they showed us the future wife of Itaru.
Finally an extra that's not really an extra with no real point, but an epilogue of some sort.
It was really nice to see them all again. Okarin is just win as always (Daga otoko da!). Kurisu was sexy in neko-maid outfit :) And of course Mayushii was really cute, especially in the motel ;)
Seeing Suzuha's mother (it was Yuki, wasn't she?) was also great.
Too bad they didn't show the kiss between them though :/
Only the movie remains, but it will probably be only a shorter version of the series though.
Anyway, this was a perfect ending for a masterpiece of an anime and one of my favorites.
El. Psy. Congroo.
Now this is how you do an extra episode/OVA. This is not some mindless filler or omake.
Kurisu and Okabe are fantastic together. And Okabe's engrizu is epic.
IT"S A MOTEL!
“If it were a third-rate TV anime, a dead protagonist can come back to life at the producers’ convenience. But the world we live in is not such a convenient place. Lost lives will never return. Because of it, we live in a world where a life is an irreplaceable existence.”
Nidhoeggr said: I guess we have to wait for the movie to see them finally go further....
But the movie is not added as a sequel to the series so I wonder if we will see more romance between them.
Also awesome OVA :)
I hope it will, because i want and want and want to see more romance between them ;~;!
10 for OVA, i've seen what i wanted to see. I've learned what i wanted to. Makise remembers all the romantic parts with Okabe. And they even kissed at the end, AWESOME!(Although we didn't see it). ;~;!
It was perfect for me >.< 10/10, it conclude in an epic way kurisu-okabe relationship, i need nothing more than that to know they will live happily ever after (?). The only thing I didn´t like was the lack of TUTURUU! xD and maybe that there was nothing at the end of the credits....i love when there is something extra at the end.
Anyways...how the f*ck they did come back to the city? xD

Sorry for my bad english D= i speak spanish. If you see some grammar errors in my post, please tell me =D i would thank you very much
Not the best OVA I've seen. It has the continuation which is nice and it is pertinent, but to tell the truth there was less substance in it than I would've liked. Still it's Steins; Gate and it was good, it just fell short of my expectations of such a good series. If it was a /10 system I would've given it in this poll a 9/10 but as it isn't I gave it a 4/5.Hope we see some more substance in the movie this fall.
Look at my awesome sig :)
How do you make a sig?
Both Okabe and Kurisu are out in the middle of nowhere, both out of phone battery, Kurisu's outta gas, and Okabe's got $0.67. Did they ever get out of that one?
they would most likely just wait for a passerby and get help that way
Anyways, this was a decent way to wrap up the series. They pretty much had to include this ending for all of the Okabe x Kirisu fans. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the OVA and am not in the slightest upset about how they ended it with the "close your eyes" thing. We already know what happened the first time, so there should be no doubt. It was definitely a nice touch there.
Nichibotsu-kaeru said: was nice having seeing every one again, i only realise now how much i miss the show. "close your eyes".... give me some thing more then that ending!!!
I actually liked that they ended it that way, she was going to kiss him just like she did on that other world line when he confessed and she told him to close his eyes so to see that reference being used was freaking awesome! Much better than just a normal kiss or she say I love you to. I do wish that there were more episodes...I just cant get enough of Steins;Gate. It is hands down the best anime I've ever seen!
I wonder if the 'lab members' might start getting more memories from previous lines, based on what seems to be happening with Kurisu in this episode (and Feriys had that happen already, didn't she.)
Also, what if Ruka and Mayuri hook up some day after this? Seems like a possibility to me. I thought episode 18 ended on a pretty bittersweet note, and thinking about how any good might come out of him being a 'him' now. I don't know; does that idea hold any water to you?
