Great episode. I like how Mayuri makes costumes for everyone since its almost Christmas time and has a party for Suzu as well to cheer her up. I feel bad for Okabe since he's really treating Amadeus like if it really was Kurisu. Also the professor calling Ruka sexy was pure comedy gold I tell you.

Am very excited for the next episode.

I definitely got the feels at the end ;.;
I had a feeling Okabe would get attached to Amadeus, but realize its not the same as having the real Kurisu back. its also interesting that Amadeus is actually showing signs of affection to Okabe, despite being an AI.
also I couldn't stop laughing at the American scientist calling Ruka sexy and Okabe saying "but he's a dude." LOL

Im so curious about the Scream and Visions


Ya see here, I strongly suggest you to watch the Steins;Gate Movie: Fuka Ryouiki no Déjà vu. This film will easily explain the phenomenon that happened in this episode.

Great episode again.

It was inevitable that Okabe would get attached to Amadeus and you honestly can't blame him for it.

All the scenes where he reflects or gets that feeling that Kurisu is really there inside Amadeus really hits hard.

The, "Which grade" was hilarious, poor Maho. XD
"But, he's a guy" never gets old. XDD

Santa outfits were great. <3

The final scene was pretty hard to watch. T.T

'cuz Kurisu is :P



There is no Kurisu here.

You fell into the trap Maho was pointing out. That's an AI, therefore Maho best girl.

I am 100% sure Okabe changed world lines at the end. A distorted version of the sound effect used when Okabe shifts world lines in the 2009 vn can be heard. If you don't think so, the most damning evidence is the little segment of "Reading Steiner" that can be heard shortly after.

I didn't like this episode as well as the other two, I felt it was just "ok". Regardless, the story is moving along quite nicely, can't wait till next weeks episode!

Now that we're three episodes in, I have to point something out. You know how most people think that regular S;G started off really slow (a claim I personally disagree with)? I think that S;G 0 is starting off even slower so far, and if it wasn't riding in on the first class car of a hype train, people'd be more angry with it.

People dont appreciate build up and complain if the end feels shallow because there wasnt enough build up usually, its why some just bother to fill in action stuff, so actual stuff happens to make it seem interesting with less payoff. So its always weird to read stuff like "it starts slow" when its needed to make the other episodes stronger. At least some did understand this in case of S;G.

I dont see how S;G 0 is slower despite even focusing on pre-building even more stuff than the VN did at this point with slight rearranges and merges, so it will be a good payoff this time too.

Another really good episode. The Professor falling for the oldest trick in the book and his reaction when Okabe says 'he's a dude' lol XD. Okabe's interactions with Amadeus were really entertaining. The moment where he says why he called Kurisu Christina was really touching altho good thing that Maho took the phone from him since he was getting too into it. But then Okabe's scream at the end :( and those PTSD flashbacks damn.

This is the cutest episode of Steins;Gate I have ever seen. Mayuri and Faris are just an overload of cuteness in this episode, and the way the episode ended has left me in intense anticipation for what will happen next week. But damn, poor Okabe. I couldn't go through that. And Suzuha, too. I would hate it if people were always planning things behind my back. I feel bad for both characters.

Petition to stop Okarin suffering.
Just let him be happy with his virtual waifu.
Okay, that's not healthy I know, I just want him to have a break...

Poor Suzuha, everyone is always conspiring behind her back. No wonder she can't relax.
The Okabe moment with Amadeus was really cute, too bad we have to be reminded of the harsh truths of this timeline.
Baby, daijobanai...

The real heroes are never praised or prized. But humans are self-delusional creatures exactly as Okabe with that Amadeus that fits him not less than Kurisu herself. Maho , Mayuri, Suzuha, even Faris (poor Yukitaka) are not likely to win anything although their participance is decisive. They're not "best girls" due to this damned concept "the winner takes it all", irrelevant and unfair. But on the other hand, I definitely doubt if Okabe deserves such girls (adult/sweetheart/warrior/responsible). Kyouma - possibly, but Okabe - not.

Had me crying before the opening, and then throughout. Man, this is going to tear me apart, but I'm loving it.

And surely it will only even more emotional as it goes on.

87% of people gave this a 5/5?
Is this actually a joke that I wasn't aware of? Absolutely nothing happened in this episode to deserve such praise. The "cliffhanger" was the same grimdark PTSD that Okabe already had in episode 1, and will continue to have constantly for the entire show over and over.

Amazing episode, so far Steins;Gate 0 is living up to my expectations, I really hope they manage to capture most of the important details of the VN, I haven't played the VN though.

My only complaint so far is the CGI used for Kurisu, is like is not constant. In some parts of this episode Kurisu was in CGI but in other parts she had normal drawing.

If they going to make Kurisu in CGI then they should keep the CGI for consistency. Seeing her in CGI and then seeing her with normal drawing on other parts is a bit distracting I guess...

I think it's intentional to reflect Okabe point of view. The parts that Amadeus has nowmal drawing indicates Okabe is seeing her as Kurisu.

Both CGI and normal drawing mixed up represent Okabe's state of mind. The line is really blurry.

If they wanted to make her totally CGI, they could just do it. CGI is easier than drawing.

This is already so depressing. I cannot bear to watch this.

Anyways, I love it how Mayuri remained the one who understood Okabe the most in different timelines. So many things changed but that is the only thing that never changed.

Another revelation that Faris is part of the circle that knows about time travel and Suzuha's identity.

I wonder what would be Moeka's role in this one. I hated her guts in the earlier part of the first season but didn't anymore after the end. I wonder if she would do something again to make me hate her all over again.

5/5

A predictable rationalization from a fanboy.
Let us use Ockham's Razor now and see the actual reason for the inconsistent CGI: They were lazy.

It's the same reason why it feels as though I am still reading the visual novel while watching still image after still image fading into each other.

To be fair in her part, she doesn't know the story between him and the real Kurisu.

What? Where do you even get that idea from? She does what she did at the end because she's concerned that Okabe is deluding himself and slipping further away from reality. Did you not pick up on that while watching the episode? While Leskinen was talking about Christmas dates and such, take a close look at what Maho had on her computer monitor.

I love that this Kurisu/Amadeus is like a really clingy girlfriend, but is still a super tsundere that Kurisu used to be hahaha. Also that Suzuha seems to have a super soft spot for Daru, that scene with her mom was hilarious. xD

Mayuri is jealous isn't she? That's kinda sad since I finished up all the routes of the first game just recently. Time to play the 0 VN since I can't take weekly cliffhangers I guess.

I completely agree. Early S;G still had its clear hooks (episode 1's changed events were obvious, gel bananas, etc.) to keep people thinking about what was really going on. Maybe it's because I haven't read the VN, but those hooks just aren't showing up, it's only setup and slice-of-life antics. It doesn't help that S;G's early cliffhangers were the result of what you were told (as far as I remember) versus here where they're from what you don't know yet.

So Okabe was basically dating a 2D-girl this episode. Wonder if there would've been a dinner with a waifu pillow if Maho hadn't stopped him.

Yeah, but my point is, she does not know about Okabe's actual suffering, killing her, and all the PTSD and flashbacks. She just thinks he's just like him, just simply being attached to the AI, when in fact it's much much worse than she has ever experienced.

This episode truly taught me what emotion rollercoaster is...
