THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, Okabe looks horrible this episode. Same with the timeline/world he is in. (seems to be July 7th)

Somehow, Suzuha was able to find him but I think there's still a feeling of distrust between them. Daru's change surprised me a bit. I almost didn't recognize him. Definitely a thrilling episode and Okabe's despair continues.

It was also kinda strange seeing Faris in a military-style outfit. Same with Ruka. Those bullet wounds though....damn it.

So tragic, and the directing improved a lot,.

No intro today,but the philosophical elements are back for this episode, and it starts strong and creepy.

The animation improved a lot.

Suzuha is like a broken record in this episode.

Other than that, Ruka's death and the sword technique from the OG that he was trying to learn damn WF how dare you catch me off guard.

Perfect episode, and that last line is gold <3

Also, the part where everyone seems cold, damn, it really hits hard for me at least.

Pretty dark episode
Don't think they ever mentioned future Okabe's fate in original anime since the part with Nae was cutout
Well, now people know...

Okabe on meth.

The episode was ok, but I can't say that I was touched.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

I thought it was funny how Ruka said "It's a trap." All I could think after that line was "No, YOU'RE the trap." And damn, it's 25 years later, they're in the middle of a world war, and Faris is still rocking those cat ears and ending sentences with 'nyan.' That feels a bit jarring, though, considering the current mood of the setting.

Anyway, it was sad to see Ruka die, even though the death flag was super obvious. However, Okabe looks more determined now, so that's a nice contrast compared to the sorry state he was in for pretty much the whole episode.

I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Pretty good episode, the PR chapter from the VN was adapted perfectly, although it's still not over. The animation was... good, and the action scenes are definitely better than the last ones. And of course, as always, the voice acting was top-notch, the voice actors of this series never fail to disappoint us.

4.5/5

P.S.:
I think everyone knows what's happening next episode,
I honestly can't wait.

And this is why I still say that Steins Gate 0 completes Steins Gate, if the OG one is a masterpiece then so is this.

They adapted this part really well tbh, the last scene gave me shivers and if I'm right I'll be crying out of happiness and raw awesomeness in the next episode if it's done correctly!

I've known this was coming from the beginning having played the VN. Really happy to see it animated so wonderfully but damn it still did a number on me. I think it being animated affected me even more than the VN version did.

All the shit Okabe has been through and what finally broke his unwillingness to go back was seeing the person he tried to protect from the truth the most die in his arms.

Faris looked exactly the same but that Ruka...even as a badasss fighter he's still the hawtest gal in the show.

Why time leap machine again, don't they have time machine already?

Anyhow, Ruka-samurai was the highlight of the episode if not the whole season.

Does this mean the other war scene in the VN will not make it into the anime? The part where Okabe was being protected by soldiers. Yeah it was hinted way back in Ep 4 (was it?) but it really was just a short preview.

FINAL-FU#*ING-LY

Steins Gate went somewhere new with this episode, but I'm still disappointed it didn't come to this point sooner. The whole kagari as well as the A.I storyline was a waste and if it had never happened, we could have had more mythology with this episode coming much sooner.
The fact that there are only 3 episodes left is really frustrating because we are finally getting to the good part.


Also I don't understand in 2011 and also in the original series about why doesnt Okabe build the time leap machine faster so he can get back further in the past. If he does that, he would always win hours and even days and maybe even reach the previous year. He just needs to understand how to build the time leap machine as fast as possible and always do it earlier than before.

You aren't rude at all, but I doubt there would be a sequel. Both SG and SG0 are adaptations of full visual novels, and there are no other main ones to adapt from what I know.

Finally PR. Still dislike they changed it to daytime, but they otherwise caught the atmosphere quite well with the bluray hopefully fixing it more. The start was just perfect.

The episode showed why 19 was the worst possible choice to adapt PR. The link was just weak, they glimpsed on 2025 Okabe and STRATFOR wanting him. Still missing clean up of subplots. All stuff that wouldnt be so bad if they just went GS instead of making a lighthearted 19 which tries to tie Reyes in the worst possible way in.

Still glad we got an otherwise well done PR, but really its about time that 21 & 22 finally clean up the mess that 19 did and some previous choices did. I still mostly blame 19 though.

Well, at least animation quality was much better than it was in a past few episodes.

It seems that Faris doesn't age :D 40+ but still looks like a 17-year-old lol

This was terrible. I couldn't even give a shit, and it actually pains me saying that since I fucking love Steins;Gate more than my family.

Everything here was just a giant mess and the explanations did not help at all.

I don't know what the director is doing with the mixing of these routes, but this show is just sinking and sinking and sinking into the deep abyss.

I like how they changed setting, as it would be meaningless to stay in 2011. Overall it is a nice episode with predictable ending scene.

Welcome back, Steins Gate! =D

The Promised Rinascimento is now underway and although there were a few changes compared to the VN version, I say this adaptation of the route is pretty good. Unlike the VN, the anime shows Ruka and Faris' faces, in which they look like they're in their twenties.

Although Ruka was a badass, he got caught out by the big clanger of a death-flag, but despite that, his death scene with Okabe cradling Ruka in his arms was still pretty touching and sad. D=

Bring on the next episode already! =3

Finally Okabe understands that Steins Gate is the only way out from this chaos. Also it seems that whichever path he choose, all paths lead to the Steins Gate.

because i'm not VN reader i never expect this to happened and i was always wonder how they gonna show us the future if we stuck in 2011 for almost the whole series !

this episode was pretty shocking ! and pretty good
the Voice acting is perfect as always

Ruka death made me cry idk why some other people don't feel for it but i did

everything is just a chaos of suffering and pain and it's beautiful !

Well, now people know...

The part with Nae was cut out but Okabe was still known to die in 2025 though. Suzuha said so back then in Alpha.

Why would Okabe sacrifice 25 years of his life? It's better to time leap back to 2011.

Sequel of steins gate? There isn't besides the OVA and the MOVIE and people keep repeating the same shit again and again about it "not being canon".
Otherwise, you have Chaos;Child and Robotic;Notes but those aren't very good.
Robotic;Notes is also infamous for leaving easter eggs like showing the steins gate world line number on the divergence meter, showing some Kurisu message on @ channel and having DaSH (DaruSuperHacker) help defeat the big bad with his hacker skills but he's only mentionned as far as I remember. Ah and, grown up Nae is part of the main cast there.

Just like how Okabe depressed about this timeline, I feel the same way that this whole sequel thing feels quite mess up! At least it was cool to see how awesome Daru gets in future but on the other hand watching how other characters' changed feels like those where something I shouldn't have known.. the last part of the Okabe's development was great to watch.

I was so hyped waiting for this episode and wondered why there wasn't an OP this time. Okabe looked terrible being all pale. But this episode got me with the feels for Rukako. That sword fighting style was amazing. I cried when she died when Okabe finally woke up after Rukako and Faris were looking out for him. I wonder what will happen next and that last line was amazing! I like Daru's look when he's skinnier, he looks badass.

Obviously, it's the Suzuha of that time. She most likely hasn't gone back in time yet. This isn't the Suzuha who went back to the past and lived through 2036 again. It's the one who was born in 2017 and hasn't gone back to 2010 yet.

Oh man that ending got me pumped up. Okabe can finally grasp how bad the future is and will actually try to fix it. I get the feeling that the Mayuri going back with Suzuha and this route were not connected in the VN. I still think they did a decent job of connecting them. Yes last ep Okabe was trying to time leap to save them, but getting to Steins;Gate also accomplishes that. Oh ya the action felt good again as well.

Rukako was a badass and that beginning gave me chills.

Great episode.

Damn, Okabe looked horrible for most of the episode, damn.

Pretty cool that Daru and co managed to basically bring Okarin back from the dead.
Damn, Rukako went from trap to full fledged badass. :O
His death was pretty sad even though it was pretty easy to see coming. :(

That last scene was awesome, especially with the determined look on Okabe's face, Honounin Kyouma is back!!!

Awesome episode!

Okabe just keeps looking more depress no matter what timeline he is in this whole anime ;/

Daru losing that weight had me laughing but damn Ruka, sometimes I hate Japan for making him a trap so I can't say he looks "good" in the future >.<

But he is a badass trap until the end!
