What I like about Steins;Gate over Higurashi, Madoka, Haruhi, and Groundhog Day is that despite the time travel, it never gets repetitive because something different happens every time.

What I liked about this episode was that it was sort of a return to the silliness of episodes 1-11.

I really didn't think I could like Okabe any more, but he just consistently proves to me that he's my favorite character I've ever seen in anime. I haven't seen the latest episode, so I don't know for sure, but right now I'm like 99% sure that Daru is Suzuha's father.

I just hope the vendor guy who called Okarin for news about the badge isn't another SERN agent in disguise. Just when the Future Gadget Lab members have found some time to sit down, make plans and fix things, the last thing they need is another attack from SERN.

Once they fix Suzuha's time machine, Mayushii's suggestion that she go with her actually makes sense to me, since it could actually become a way to prevent or at least delay her death. Only a freak accident would kill Mayushii while she's in the relative safety of the time machine with Suzuha.

Do remember that it's not like Mayuri's name was written in the Death Note. It's merely the will of "Steins Gate" that she die at that particular time. It's a causal thing, and time machines by nature violate causality. Mayuri should be in no more danger than Suzuha herself if she were travel to 1975 with her.

Yey! An episode with Engrish! I am mad scientist, it's so cool! Sonuvabitch!


So, a more optimistic episode now that Okabe has 2 days and has got his friends helping him (rather than him rushing around on his own).

Hmmm, what are the odds one or more of Suzu's parents are in the group we've met!?!?!?!

Sonuvabitch. LOL

Ahh so that's why Suzuha was so hostile towards Kurisu when they met for the first time.

Okarin's engrish is awesome! It was nice to get a bit of comedy after the last couple of episodes.

And this episode reminded me a lot of The Terminator. Member of a resistance travels back in time, only that in this case it's to change the future instead of preserving it.

They dropped a lot of hints about Daru being the dad.

Only Okabe can insult people just like that~

I seriously thought that Suzuha gonna said "You're both married in the future" to Okabe and Kurisu~

Somehow I get this feeling that maybe Daru is Suzuha's real dad...Gonna watch the next episode~

I think I know the meaning of the badge. It could also confirm the theory about Daru being Suzuha's father.
Look at your own risk. I warned you.

Edit: I see someone already found it, meh :/

Great episode, it was hilarious and I'm glad that it seemed to have lightened up a bit; the past two episodes were so depressing.

I agree with whoever said that it would be cool if Kurisu and Okabe were Suzuha's parents, but as of now, I'm pretty sure Daru's her dad :/

Okarin's engrish had me rolling. That "son of a bitch" line got me...

Great episode. Also agreeing on Suzu's dad being Daru - they look alike(the hair/eyes).. Pretty interesting to know that in Suzuha's timeline Kurisutina is kinda of like a god...

Oh wow! My thoughts exactly. Has to be her dad. Lmao and Godess Christina ftw!

I knew Phone Microwave was the trigger to everything.

Some things that lead me to believe Daru is Suzu's father:
1) He knows they were at Akihabara at 2010
2) He was (or at least was supposed to be) at the meeting Suzu said his father was supposed to be at
3) The time machine uses similar technology as Phone Microwave. Although Okabe built it, Daru should be familiar with it enough to apply it to future projects.

I'm getting worried about Okabe's mental health. I don't think he's getting any rest between his time leaps and everything about the situation is very stressful and disturbing.

'They lived like zombies' and The Zombie is the nickname Chris hates the most. Coincidence? Maybe she transferred something from the future but it's only emerging in her subsinsciousness.

Chestnut Rice and Kamehameha, this must be photoshopped, lol what.

I'm calling it. Suzuhara's dad is probably Okabe, and he's the one that built the time machine. It has to be him because he's the only one that remembers anything after a time shift. In the anime, his nick name is barrel titor. He also might be the john titor in 2000. If it's not Okabe, it might be Daru. Mayuri said they look good together. He worked on the time machine, and they both have brown hair. I probably make too many guesses, but that's the fun part of watching Steins;Gate.

Okabe's hilarious engrish made this episode. Plus there's a lot of things that suggest Daru might be Suzuka's father. Guess that will be revealed in the next episode.

So much Suzuha in this ep. Love her even more, she's great.

Perfect pacing, I felt engrossed throughout. I found the @channel scene, Okabe's attempt at english and Makise's misunderstanding about the badge hilarious.

So the guy remembered something about the badge but I'm not going to assume we'll meet Suzuha's father just yet, although I'm eager to know more about him.

When he said that he was a cool mad scientist and that the other guy was a son of a bitch I couldn't stop laughing. Suzuha is amazing, this is getting so interesting. I can't wait for more!

Amazing how this anime hooked me in, really didn't think I would like it and almost passed it over after episode one. But that is besides the point, I wonder who her father is gonna be, also curious about this but what ever happened to Roku, feel bad she/he kind of just fell out of the story after getting a gender change.

Having seen the anime this far, it slowly makes sense to me, that the first one or two episodes actually took place in 2036. Somehow Okabe from the past traveled to the future, saw Makise working for SERN, and then her death due to SERN'S assassination. There is one thing I don't understand, however, is why Okabe does not retain any of this memory.
