Will they start to remember again even though its a different world line?
That depends on Okabe and his feeling sharing. In this episode it once again proved just like with Mayuri that the Reading Steiner may be shared if emotionally all is there as in the love Okabe has for Makise. Thus the memories may resurface.

I guess they really did troll us into Mayuri x Okabe being more like a sister/brother relation and Makise x Okabe being total serious love. Damn, that's too bad.

LOVED IT!

Oh god, that kiss reminded me a bit of Toradora.

Great way to end the episode with a little segway into the final conflict. Stopping WWIII? He's got this.


I had the exact same thought :P

... Am I the only one who actually applauded when Okabe and Kurisu kissed? I mean, BEST EPISODE EVER; it deserves applause~!
You can say it that way but I was just mesmerized precisely because it was well done indeed and intense to say the least.

My applaude goes to this,

we have finally went above the 1% and I was totally jumpy. I was screaming out in happiness. This fan is happy that Mayuri was saved and is OK. Looks like the God of Saturn is happy, being featured a little again in that calendar gave away enough hints on that one.

Like everyone says the thing with Suzuha could be a original ending where I see Okabe either going into the future to finish off SERN or do something to cut them out in the present like invading their HQ. It's possible the last 2 episodes may outdo the VN if the action is EPIC.

Watch out VN people, you may get impressed.


its most likely gonna be the "true ending" since there is 2 episodes left. they kinda rushed episode 22 but meh i'll take my true ending :D

Oh Shit...Stop World war III... what?
So basically, it's like we're at the beginning now, but if alpha future was controlled by SERN, then beta's...what? and if Suzuha came from the future...someone succeeded on making the time machine~

Geez what and emotional episode...I admit, I cried all along T_T there I said it.

YurikoRaine said:
At first I cried.
Then... I cried some more.
Then I smiled when they kissed.
Then I cried... even more.
And more...
And more...
I seriously lost it when Okabe went nuts after he couldn't hear Kurisus confession.

Then, at the silent end... WWIII. I WTF'D LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

Same here T_T

I don't even want to wonder about what's next...though I'm kind of lost regarding this world line and I would like to be a little less...my question is...could things have changed in beta from what it was originally supposed to be...? (I think I need to re-watch the beginning and I just started this anime last week ...wooot?!!!)

Ok, I'm really confused, so I'll just wait dying inside/re-watching episodes/punching walls to pass time/getting to the hospital with hand's bones broken/ inventing the time machine to go to the future and watch next episode (...normal stuff) patiently for the next episode...meanwhile I'll be like "omg omg omg omg omg ~inf." I seriously dislike my fanatical attacks...but damn this anime got me. For good.

Ok, what if...as Tuturuu~ (srsly I forgot her name...ah...Mayuri!) remembers her deaths from alpha world line...then, if the other characters do too...maybe something changed! I don't know .-. It would be cool if there was a gamma world line :B (nah...at this point it would be kind of lame :x) Also, why the hell steins thingy that allows Okabe to remember everything also passed to other characters...I have been thinking about that since Ferris-nyan reversed her D-mail...anyway, maybe it's just like Kurisu said "insert whatever she said that sounded really beautiful about existence and world lines(...)"

That's not going to happen, because it's confirmed that we will get the True Ending deom the VN.

and lol, people still thinks that this Suzuha is the alpha Suzuha.
People we have arrived in The Beta Worldline

She's not Alpha world line Suzuha

It's been discussed that other character "remembering events" is not a Reading Steiner. because they basically have 2 parallel memories, while Okabe who has the reading Steiner only has one continuous memory. Basically they're experiencing some sort of De javu.

There is a small hint about the whole WW3 thing in episode 3. It was around the time when Okabe sends a text to John Titor.


Now that you mention it... I completely forgot. It's the first sentence.

-Okabe x Makise seen bed.

-Makise only in underwear and Okabe in boxers.

-Movement of having sex but only in shadows or the face of Makise/Okabe being in heat. Not showing any nudity nor too much.

Confirmed but not impossible to change a few things in it to make it more EPIC like putting in action and stuff. That makes whether True Ending into an Original Ending. Perhaps it may be so to some.

Pure speculation, but I'm guessing the next set of events will occur similar to The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (if anyone has seen it). Okabe has to send Suzuha to kill Kurisu in order to set into motion the events of episode 1.

I always wondered about that. Whether the people in other world lines go on living or if the universe literally revolves around Okabe and the only world lines that "exist" are the ones he's currently in.
I hope this stopping of WWIII in the last 2 episodes doesn't fuck anything up.

Oh got it. But it certainly comes from some kind of influence from Okabe...

On a serious note though, I'm sad that they had to go back to the beta line.

It'll probably be an adaptation of "Hiyoku Renri no Darling".

I think this pretty much confirms that Boukan no Rebellion (and real life, assuming the 2000 John Titor was also Suzuha) takes place in beta world line, as well as confirming that crossing the "Ichi Parusento" did pretty much jack shit beyond saving Mayuri.

Actually, in the VN I'm pretty sure Okabe said that everyone had a form of Reading Steiner albeit not as strong as his. Don't remember exactly though but we can wait and see in the last episode (that's when he says something about it).

Regarding this episode, very nice. Loved the ending, especially when Okabe makes that declaration. Oh, but it seems there is still trouble in the beta world line. Its good to know we're getting the true ending.

I know many people will have their minds twisted yet again with the next two episodes.

That may be true, but only Okabe has the TRUE Reading Steiner. The Reading Steiner is a lot more evident when Okabe crosses major world lines (like alpha, beta, and gamma, etc.)

this episode is epic. :3
honestly I've felt slightly disappointed of anime episodes since ep13.
but this... this episode 22 is really attracting.
fake ending is also included with my favorite BGM GATE OF STEINER (Main theme).
VN players like me were also satisfied very much!

then I become like lol at MAL.
ep22 discussion is already at 8 pages...
lol, it's too fast...

can't wait next. she's gonna come back.

Listening to the VN again (yay for quicksave!), after Okabe realizes that Kurisu is gone, I really wished they added Okabe's breaking down. Fuck, Miyano Mamoru did such an amazing job in that scene! Maybe the BD will have the scene extended?

But probably not.
