My gosh Okarin is like what...a prof at some university? I was annoyed that he ran around mindlessly trying to do everything on his own. Then again he was sort of crazy to begin with, and Kurisu has already been shown to be the one who had better long term thoughts between the two. Well I guess Mayuri's death caused him to go full crazy for a bit but I'm glad this was only limited to 2 episodes. Makes me want to downgrade Steins Gate rating of a 10/10 to a 9/10 because he was acting very stupid/annoying.

Finally last episode and this episode is over. Next episodes should start to be interesting again.


why annoyed? seeing your childhood friend die over and over again brought him close to a nervous breakdown

Imagine he would have acted like nothing major happened that would actually make him a shallow character

Kurisu was so damn hot doing the Mad Scientist posu and her laugh, even though she lost momentum pretty fast. I do wonder what's so embarrassing about having her own fork and spoon.

The 'Groundhog Day' effect was pretty nuts, going over and over the same thing dozens of times and still seeing Mayushii die no matter what. I'm annoyed they showed us Mayuri turned into jelly but didn't give a word of explanation about that one. Any readers of the VN who clue us in, or is that a spoiler?

Yeah, 'Barrel' Titor is even more obvious to the Japanese, since Daru is another word for Barrel (or phonetically similar, one of the two). Things really have picked up in this series after the lackadasical approach of the first season. 11 episodes still to go, I wonder if the whole series will revolve around saving Mayuri from now on or if there's a greater Plot to be discovered with changing worldlines ...

Just to remind everyone, we still don't know the cause of Kurisu's death in episode 1. I think its almost obvious that this event will still have some kind of major effect in the plot soon.

You Oosran , such a sadist (-v-)

Not shocked with Suzuha being John Titor as she was really really ayashii, like all the time. Satellite being a time machine on the other hand was a shock as it was just lying there on the top of the building like an orphan. The government not making a huge fuss out of it shows that the organization (not going to say SERN because the FB shit is confusing here) behind it is highly powerful.

Okarin crying like that was just *gets teary*---- I just want to give him a hug and maybe even kiss him if required.
Kurisu is just too awesome of a character. Trying to cheer up Okarin like that was just so cute and nice of her. She does care a great deal about Okarin~♥
And the hand scene between them was indeed hot.

So glad that the gel Mayushii wasn't that scary to look at but still ;___ ;
So, I really can't enough of S;G. Do end up viewing the eps from time to time. Its been a while since that happened.

Good point and reminder Riga. Can't wait to see what happens when they finally figure out the bigger picture of events happening.

I really love everything so far. The pacing is reeeally enjoyable.

The woven similar timelines explain a lot about why d-mail seems to change things drastically while time leap cannot seem to escape the same major line.... and the major splits in the previous events mentioned (gulf war, y2k, etc) are actually the only major divisions recently. This does imply that okabe is actually in the same major line since the beginning of the show.... so he's only ruffling tiny leaves on the end of a massive tree of world lines, and the major divergences are like the boughs of it.

Was kind of expected that Suzuha was Titor, but it still made me smile when she admitted it. The major events that she mentioned btw are all things the actual John Titor is cited as being wrong about (for example he said Y2K would greatly destroy the infrastructure of the world, splitting the USA into various regions and causing global pandemonium).... as well as the predictions about the Gulf War. So it's all neatly rationalized as a correction in the current world lines.... lol.

Suzuha is John Titor eh....
makes..some sense I guess... xD;; it explains mostly why she seems to have this dislike towards Kurisu lol

I got to say, the reason why I watched Steins;Gate is because I can never predict what's going to happen. This episode is the proof of it. I always thought that there was something going on with Suzuha, but I thought she was just telling the truth about the fact she is a Soldier. The fact that she is from the future explains a lot of her actions, but who would have thought that she is the infamous time traveler John Titor.

Once again, Steins;Gate succeeded to entertain me. (It would be even more awesome if the real John Titor is an alternative Suzuha)

Hell, Suzuha just mindfucked me. I expected someone less obvious to be John Titor honestly. It was a totally fantastic episode plot-wise and Kurisu shined really bright, just as she should.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

It feels like I've only seen 10 minutes of the episode, when really I've seen 22 minutes of it. I hate that!

The hand scene between Okarin and Kurisu was hot; It was like hands making out XD


Hah yeah, before I realized it, it was over! Too intense. Man this is AMAZING!

I knew it, if Okarin just calms the fuck down, and actually tells someone what the hell was going on, he would see much better results. Everything is looking a LOT better than it was when he was failing over and over it again. There is actually a chance now.

You know, I'm actually not all that surprised.
It's Mayuri's watch! Don't let it stop! If her watch actually is the cause, then that would be kind of lame.

I was speculating Suzuha being John Titor from the very first 4 episodes. At the first episode she is seeing waving to Okabe at the roof next to the satellite. She knows nothing about fireworks and stuff that other people would normally know. Then there was also the hate for Kurisu. Suzuha also telling Okabe to contact John Titor. From previous experience with Fate/Stay Night I was sure that Suzuha was John Titor.

After the day she disappears and Okarin sends himself a dmail to stop her from leaving it could not be more obvious than that. The place where the satellite was was even shown empty. The instant she says her father was a Titor, it was obvious she was a Titor as well.

I knew she was a time traveler. The only time traveler known in the series was John Titor. All the pieces were there. Victorique! I reconstructed the pieces of chaos!

As for Kurisu. Best character ever. "I hate the future me" was so funny. Totally enjoyed this episode. Was surprised to learn that the counter she had was made by Kyouma. That means he must be an awesome resistance time travel fighter.

As for Suzuha's father. I think the father is either Daru or Kyouma himself. Clues being that Daru was also heading for that same conference Suzuha was going.

ugh the beginning got on my nerves. not because mayuri kept on dying but because our so called mad scientist was just being hysterical. it annoyed me to death. so really this episode 'started' when he began talking to christina.

I'm not able to speculate on why Kurisu originally died, but I'm fairly convinced that her being alive is the base cause of Mayuri's death.

I could smell Suzuha's post nuclear war stench from episode 1

I always suspected she was or had strong ties to John Titior

Kurisu was hot

finally he got help. did like Hoouin Kyouma trying to fight Moeka, should have killed the bitch there. should have went to the part time warrior and Makise to begin with. Moeka gave him some tips though with the 3 reasons...

wait Suzuha aka part time warrior is also ... AKA JOHN TITOR? WHOAAA

she could have been much help earlier! awesome... where does Hoouin Kyouma go now?!

man I really thought he was losing it after failing repeatedly to save Mayuri that must have been crushing him. her own personal fork? HAH.

That was an amazing episode as usual. I loved how Cristina tried to copy Hououin's laugh. I kind of expected Suzuha to be from the future or at least something along those lines since she was rather suspicious, but I did not expect her to be John Titor.

Also, does anyone understand the spoon and fork thing? I assume it is a meme from 2chan, but a further explanation would be nice if anyone can give one.

Hmm, kinda didn't surprise me when Suzuha turned out to be John Titor, since after she started talking of the 1% divergence I somehow got the feeling she would be him, with her father being Barrel Titor and all :D

Quite an actionless episode this time, but at least it gave some valuable information :D At least it is confirmed that there is a way to save Mayuri, but reaching it seems to be a completely different matter O_o

It already has destroyed the horror of what is the endless 8. With that said I hope they do avoid the overuse of the same scenes.

So the speculations were true that Suzuha came from the future but to be John Titor wasn't expected.

Suzuha using a male title didn't crossed my mind. >.<

And Kurisu blushing more. <3

She proved to be more useful than just making time leaps and D-Mail work.

So there's still hope for Mayuri to be alive. That was relieving..

So, this was an awesome episode. I got to see Mayuri die again like a bunch of times, which honestly became annoying. I get Okabe is worried about her, but for me it got annoying really fast. So, I was pretty happy that Mayuri disappeared for the rest of the episode and I got my Okabe and Kurisu scenes. Don't get me wrong..I like Mayuri, but my favorite is without a doubt Kurisu so I was missing her already.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

"Right now what you want most is your own personal fork, but you already have your own spoon?"

What, im confused by that sentence what does it mean?

I wonder why Christina blushed like that after Okabe said it does she have some sort of cutlery fetish? is it a bad translation interpretation?

Wow, Steins;Gate just keeps getting better and better. At first it seems like a big mess of confusion where only little bits here and there make sense, then they start connecting together... falling into place... and now we're starting to get the big picture!

I really did not expect Suzuha to be John Titor, so that there was a huge surprise, but it all makes sense! Gahh, this anime is so hard to describe but I LOVE it. What started out as some weird guy rambling on about who knows what and his two friends who didn't really give a damn has turned into a masterpiece. At least in my opinion.

This is awesome, the plot just gets more interesting and even though it may seem nonsensical, all of a sudden everything snaps into place. I feel really bad for Okabe though. I mean what a nightmare watching your close friend die over and over, in a world where no one has a clue what you're talking about. A world where no matter how hard you desperately try to protect someone, everything seems to conspire against you so they die. Poor guy, I really hope they find a way to save her soon.

I really suck at describing what I mean, but either way I love it so far and can't wait for the next episode. I want to know more about Suzuha too! And even though she said something about Kurisu joining SERN, I really hope that doesn't happen. I mean really, after going through all that and knowing what they're up to why would SHE EVER want to join them!? Gahh, next week seems so far away...

I played VN but couldn't get why Kurisu was embarrassing where she mentioned spoon and fork. Maybe for her, spoon means friend and fork means lover as her own metaphor or something, I guess.

Omg jello scene in a flash. Is that it? I wanna hear that horrific scream of Okabe. Disappointed. They portrayed him as less emotional. In the VN, when Mayuri got shot back in the lab, it just painted Okabe's mind all red and he charged at Moeka screaming "I'LL KILL YAAAAA!!!", but was stopped by Kurisu. And we've yet seen the "best" of Mayuri's deaths, hahahaa... ha. All we got are the gore ones. Tho I doubt they will ever put it into the anime as it's -

*Not really a spoiler*


I'm glad that Suzuha finally explained everything. So every1 can stop arguing and enjoys the show. =]

If Suzuha's Attraction Thoery is indeed correct... she should of realised that her doings will all be in vain. SERN will rule time itself. But if it's Worldline Beta... hum...

This is freaking crazy at the end. When Suzuha in the following,

said “I am from the year 2036 and am John Titor” I was like WTF! O_O Then it went something like Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit!
I knew it but still it totally got me surprised with the setup it put forward. Suzuha here literally blew me out of my seat with her Alpha/Beta word line theory that is rather well shown here with the way it's portrayed I loved it! Not to mention the divergence number indicator in the spoiler
whom Okabe himself invented.
Which means he does succeed in saving Mayuri possibly because he built that so that a mistake like with Mayuri would not happen. Perhaps he built to save Mayuri in the past as well.

According to what I understood (I am sure Fai and Saka can correct me if I ma wrong) I love you guys in this thread! Anyway from the looks of the threads on this rope they are like many world lines but only in one major world line and all Okabe did was change the circumstances around an event that repeats itself in that major world line thus it is not avoidable but there is something as things being undone, however it's impossible to do that in that major world line because too much has changed, I suppose, to reverse it back. Thing is if you can change major world lines like the ropes here show then changing the occurrences of things without having the death of Mayuri happen is a possibility. In fact Mayuri's death may never happen as long as those things get undone in that major world line that Mayuri's death has not happened at all. In the end we have a time machine able to do that major world line change and I hope that Makise/Suzuha/Okabe do it all together. Save Mayuri please! Save her no matter what!

The other thing that cheered up my super depression still lingering around me is Makise's pose in the following,

now that was great. Her facials of shy and loving nature in the spoiler
got me really good into a better mood somewhat. Like the red fading away of a slap but the pain still being around. In fact it was this very face of Makise with a cursing of her future self. That got me laughing for the first time in this episode. Loved Makise's cause/occurrence board. After all for a occurrence to happen a effect must happen but for that to occur a cause must be responsible. It's precisely that cause that is root that cannot be undone less the major world line occurs to the Beta world line!

  • I cried manly tears with Okabe in the following spoiler
    as he cried I broke down! I can't take Mayuri's death. It's hard on me emotionally.That bitch Moeka and SERN. Damn you all!

  • I got totally broken down by Mayuri's death. This is so hard on me. HEY MAN! I have seen Mayuri die like 7 times! 7 times! Oosran is probably getting orgasmic over it in this episode but I value emotionally a lot Mayuri. Mayuri died 7 times:
    -First time was not that bad.
    -Second was not bad either.
    -As the third times became more graphic it has gotten me much more emotionally. As details are shown it affect me more.
    -Fourth time just kept piling up on the depression.
    -Fifth time here.
    By the end Mayuri's deaths in the spoiler
    got me T_T like never before. I broke down there at that moment. It was a total drenching experience of tears. I mean when you see Mayuri have a gun pointed at her and you see a window being broken like that while Okabe got Mayuri's blood on his face. T_T No more! Mayuri's watch in blood made it worse! :(

  • Loved how Okabe used a toy gun at first and then got a real one from Moeka in the spoiler
    I find Moeka's reasons to be the same lame ass reasons that any other organization would use as a excuse to shut down civilians that know too much. FUCK YOU SERN! That's all I got to say. Damn shit ass organization think they can do like all these major oil tycoons that shut down inventor of cars that don't need their shit ass oil (e.g.). Yeah, I say let the public of this machine and let them use it with some control implemented. Like you can't go back more than a amount. Anyway SERN can eat my shorts and die from that.
Lovely episode. This show is amazing and rocks. It got me raged, depressed and excited in one go again! Wow! Amazing really.

That would require changing world-line from further away point, at least twenty years or so. So yeah, I bet with current tech capabilities he is not capable of that.
