THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Feyris-centric episode.
Each D-mail they send keeps changing something bigger each time.
If Okabe hasn't already lost his mind, he sure will by the time this show's done! :P

So was Tora no Ana the shop Okabe, Daru, and Mayuri went to in the middle of the episode? I'm confused.

Oh shi-
Okarin, you'd better stop sending D-mails, or you might make Akiba disappear completely.
And my Moeka was back! <3 We need moar Shining Finger.

Kurisu crying was nice, and I thought what Okarin said to her was also great. Her response was also incredibly funny when Okarin started "calling" his buddies (or w/e his imaginary friends are) saying she fell right into his trap.

Anyway, MUST HAVE NEXT EPISODE NOW. This is getting too intense.

And Ruka confirmed for a girl, she wore a female school uniform.

"Feyris, nyan nyan! ... No, nyan nyan!" Okabe is just hilarious with every single thing he says. The back & forth between him & Kurisu(tina) during the phone call was great, too.

This series is really shooting up high every episode now. Been VERY enjoyable the pass 5 or 6 episode for me. Can't wait to see how he's gonna lose his shit with all the different changes with the last D-Mail sent & how he's gonna try to fix it.

Also ~ What exactly did Mayushii mean when she said, "I feel like I'm gonna lose him"? Was she referring to Okabe's chemistry with Kurisu or just something completely different?

The ED accompanying Okarin realizing what happened to Akiba was awesome, had a perfect mood to it. Along with Kurisu spouting memes and plenty of Feyris, I think this was my favorite episode so far. Only thing it was missing was tu-tu-ruu

Oh, Dal.
Oh, shut it, Mayushii.
Oh, Okarin.
And just about the right amount of Faris in this episode~

Anyway I had something useful to say like, 5min into the episode, but I forgot.
Guess I'll just edit my post if I happen to remember whatever it was sometime later.
Oh well, screw it. Next episode is when shit hits the fan anyway ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

This is getting very serious. I was like 'don't let her send that msg', cause some shit gonna happen and it did. :|
But that's a good thing, I guess. It will be interesting to see what actions will mad scientist take now. I wonder, what was that Feyris sent in that mail exactly. Not to mention, what's more that changed including relationships with lab members.
This is killing me, need another episode now. xD

I figured Kurisu used a typically Japanese meme or internet reference that wasn't really directly translatable, so they opted to just replace it with an American meme (the Xzibit "Yo Dawg" meme). The real point was just that Kurisu was a 2channer (2channel is pretty much the Japanese 4chan, or better, vice versa).

Anyway, another excellent episode and with the changes now getting uncontrollably big Okarin should really start reconsidering messing with the past again, although I expect now we'll get the inevitable attempts to 'correct' the past and possibly mess up stuff some more.
Ara ara.

Oh sh**. Akihabara went poof. That's gotta have some serious effects on the lab also if ya ask me. I guess Feyris sent a text to her dad saying not to touch Akiba or something. I guess she never saw him otherwise ? Missing family does suck..

No. AKibahara is no longer akibahara from our world.

http://xorsyst.com/japan/akihabara-stores-tora-no-ana/

Akibahara PREVIOUSLY and IN OUR WORLD is the center of all things otaku.

AKIBAHARA in after Ferris message is a simple japanese town of technology and stuff.

And thus Akiba became a normal town. Never send D-Mails without checking them beforehand, that's the basic of basics. No, never send any D-Mails even, it's not worth it.

The series is getting better by the week, but will it hold till the end ?

Seriously though, if I could, I would personally want to send a hell lot of them.
Ignore the risks. Imagine the fun.
You can do practically anything. Not to mention the consequences. But hey, what's a major success without any kind of consequences?

Okarin hiding his embarrassment was funny.
Mayuri's biribiri was cute.

Anyways,
Okarin is quiet gullible; always check the D-mail beforehand! ALWAYS!
Getting a bad feeling from the Butterfly Effect. They will indeed mess more with the time travel and can't wait to see what happens then.
Not a fan of Faris but her role this episode wasn't bad.
Damn the show is good!
Me wants to go to Akihabara :(

LOL, this part cracked me up too much.. oh well
anyways,

So I'm guessing Feyris-tan's D-mail was something related to her father, and because of that, she didn't have to, "own" Akiba at all, not causing the moe culture store to be made..
or so, thats what I'm thinking xD;; ffff..
what else can happen.. oh gosh.. :c
this anime gets too good 8D

Each time the past is changed, Okabe becomes a little bit more distant. He tries to describe his memories to everyone, but they don't even know whether to believe him or not. Pretty much, he's experienced things that the others haven't and that makes communication with them awkward for him. Take the incident with the Metal Upa in this episode. He phrases the question, "You're still looking for a Metal Upa?", to which Mayuri is confused. To her, collecting Upas has been her hobby. But to Okabe, she already got a Metal Upa once and he's surprised that she's still looking for one in this other "world line".

By retaining his memories, Okabe is essentially traversing between world lines. While the people he knows may be the same, everything is foreign to him. And the more he does that, the more distant he'll become.

just like in C, the more power the person hold, the more change and influence they have over the world. This was the case for Feyris....
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

This is what I think, too...

Anyways, YET ANOTHER great episode, lots of stuff getting more and more messed up, the ending song fit nicely with the situation...

I, of course, can't wait for the next episode...

NO MORE OTAKU PARADISE!! -rejoices?- XDD jk

Okarin should've checked what Feyris had sent since there's no sent archive for D-mails and Feyris couldn't remember anything at all. Either way, we saw the changes but we don't know what exactly Feyris have sent to the past. I suppose it has something to do with her dad.

wow Hououin Kyouma is going to lose it at this point. they are changing so much he can't even know what all is changing. having Feyris send a message back without even looking at it was a bad idea. this has to be so confusing for him at this point. CHRISTINA hanging up on him repeatedly was hilarious.

so now they know Moeka again but are even further from using the IBN 5100 again. can't be a coincidence.

THAT"S CRAZY. Akihabara without any anime. No Otaku's paradise. Now we know what the message was. Something like don't bring any moe things to Akihabara. That world can never go back to normal because they keep changing the world.

Feyris-tan, that was quite the selfish message you sent.

Awesome episode.
