It's so hard to over-look the transphobia in Steins;Gate. This new season already let me down. They need to stop the whole "she's a dude" joke with my GIRL, Ruka. 🙃

Mayuri x Okabe relationship is the best in this entire anime. I really love them, and I really mean friendship, hope it will stay that way. But strangely their friendship feels stronger and much closer than any romantic one Okabe can have with Kurisu.

Ugh, it's really hard to see Okarin being all deluded by Amadeus :( You need to get over it, Mayushii is right by your side, dammit!

Anyway, Leskinen's accent is even more hilarious in the anime, with all these awkward faces he keeps making xD Amazing. The whole party was super fun to watch, especially Nao x Maho cosplays :3 I missed these guys having fun soooo much!

Uuh, no. This is the Beta world line. Nothing from the Alpha world line happened here. Meaning Mayuri is not fated to die, and Mr.Braun and Moeka didn't die either.

What? No. All those things happened in the world Kurisu was alive.
Did you forget how the story happens?

Unpopular opinion - I'm not a big fan of AI Kurisu.
I have no idea where the story will go and I can just judge these 3 episodes, but so far it feels like the writer wanted to come up with something new besides the time travel and decided to throw in the Amadeus system. I don't want a whole season about this instead of exploring the time travel more. I guess in the end it'll have something to do with making time machines work, but I'm just not feeling that part of the story :/
Please don't kill me for that opinion. It's just how I feel about it and it's only been 3 episodes.

The Okabe realisation at the end hit me hard. It's so easy to just focus on something so beautiful, but end up forgetting reality. So. Relatable.

Great ep as always. Steins;Gate never lets me down. I can't wait to watch more!

Mayushii in Santa outfit. Now I can die is peace.

Also watching Okabe breakdown is so hard to my heart. :(

I like this episode too but I feel like they shortened a bit too much the scenes here, it looks like a best-off of the jokes and references of the corresponding vn part x)

Rintaro was supposed to invit Maho with the advice of Amadeus if I remember well o_o (and Leskens tagged along)

I'm really glad that they added more Mayuri scenes, it's going to help understanding her route x) Be brave Mayuri !

Nice rework of the relationship scenes between Amadeus and Rintaro, it seems more natural :)

Don't worry, the time travel part remains a big part of the story

Dont worry, time travel is still in the story... its just like it seems that the anime version they are going to the plot more later than the vn... in the vn two plot twist happened in this episode and here no so i think these are coming later

The maintheme is still timetravel. So dont worry about it focusing too much on Amadeus. Its rather different than you expect it being a theme.

Their relationships (M x O) are all-inclusive, almost all. But indeed friendship makes it outstandingly deep and unfathomable, far stronger than any romance itself. Mayuri is not only cute and amazing, she's brave and faithful, she's ever right by his side and will definitely help Okabe to find the way out of the dark. SG0 mirrors SG: Altair firstly saved Vega, so it's the time for Arc Light to save Altair and cross the Milky Way together. This additional dimension of Orihime&Hikoboshi makes the story kinda cosmogonic and philosophical.This mysterious profundity japanese call 幽玄 (yuugen).

But She's an AI.

The real highlight of today's episode is when Mayuri hear that Okabe is talking to someone (Makise or Christina) on the phone. mAyuri sure is sad knowing that Okabe likes other already...

And here comes Maho who have interrupted the conversation of Makise and Okabe. Well she just reminded him that the real her is dead already, and its just an AI... How sad for him as he has able to enjoy again since he is seeing that AI MAkise as like a real her.

IM SO EXCITED FOR NEXT EPISODE!!!

Wonder if the ending has something to do with "reading steiner".
Can he be jumping through the lines subconsciously?
Even though 10/10 for the episode,feels like calm before the storm.


I think it's the past trauma of the 3 weeks of time traveling catching up with him. The mention of Makise's death made him remember everything he tried to forget up until now

If I had to guess I'd go with this theory (didn't read VN so it's just guessing).

Rintaro refuses to work on time machine, that's established.
Kurise is AI that reminds him of past.
Events from this episode, especially the ending, break him, and he begins working on time machine again, in hopes of pulling Flash and fucking up a timeline.

This could all be COMPLETELY wrong, and if original series is anything to base my opinion on, there will be 50 turns and twists in the meantime.

And I'll be there to enjoy the ride.

Much weaker episode for sure, still the ending definitely was enticing but something I feel like was easy to see coming given the whole direction of the episode.
Reallllly curious as to see how Okabe's relationship with Mayuri and Maho develops and how his own mental state holds up with the shenanigans I know are going to come.
3/5

Well that for sure seem more probable than my theory.

Does not have the hold or pull factor of the first series.

Well, the only thing that is wrong is that the time machine is ready on top of the radio building. No need for him to work on time machine again for kurisu.

The first minutes of the episode that Mayuri is not a fool girl, she is very insightful!!!
Okabe is confusing the "virtual ID" with the reality, and this actions could come a new way for this series!!!!

I really liked how they portrayed the flashbacks here. It's interesting to note Kurisu and Mayuri don't appear in them. By that moment Okabe has already accepted the new world and his obsession with Amadeus gave him the missing parts he needed to delude himself into thinking that Kurisu might still be alive just like before, and Mayuri is right besides his shoulder. Just then, Maho immediately crashes his illusion by reminding him of the word "dead" and what exactly it means. Okabe lied to himself about these two persons, but he forgot how many more people died because of his actions and mistakes he did trying to save both Mayuri and Kurisu. Reminiscing their fate again really hit him hard.

That moment was taken from the novels and is completely superior to what the VN provided in this context, and acts as a very memorable story split. Really like these changes.

Okabe getting comfortable with speaking to Kurisu was a very heart warming thing to witness, seeing Okabe coming back to reality realizing that is not the real Kurisu and his reaction get me really excited for what happens next!
