I'm usually very lazy but I just need to say something for this episode in particular lol.

That's a materpiece right there, I didn't expect this anime to be about romance but it definitively is, and holy shit, it's a fucking great romance, the best one I've watched in anime.

Never a character climbed my top characters list as fast as Kurisu. How can a girl be this good? I loved the pairing with okabe.

This episode was strong, sad, brilliant. This series definitively deserves the 9+ rating it has

didn't really like this episode because i'm not a fan of Kurisu, but it was okay. i really hope this show doesn't pull a plot convenience card where everyone survives and lives happily ever after

Interesting. People have been expecting a kiss, and I was surprised, because it never seemed like a pairing to me. The romance wasn't well done at all, since it didn't even seemed romantic before this episode, it came out of the blue. I have nothing against it though.

Otherwise, it was weird the way they changed the past this time, without d-mail. But reading this thread helped me understand. And after the post-credits scene, I'm eager for the next episodes.

Eh.

Okabe X Kurisu was going to happen, everyone knew that. And when she rushed to the Lab to tell him: 'I love you' while the timeline was changing I though: 'Man, this is so cliché'. And... didn't we already know that? They've kissed, it's not like this is School Days or anything B-Baka Haha, geddit, Kurisu is a tsundere eks dee dee dee

That said, the ending is the embodiment of hype. Not even Monster could hype up the next episode so much.

Man, this is a hard series. The emotion ;;;
My boyfriend is theorizing that with Suzuha coming back and two more episodes (also WWIII????) that Kurisu might have to come back in another timeline, but damn. I made him hold off on finishing the last eps because we had to go to bed lol this show is definitely binge worthy (I also recommend bingeing, the story and timeline might be hard to follow if you watch it within a month or whatever lol)

This is my second time watching it since I'm watching the series, realising I've forgotten 80% for steins gate zero. This time I actually shed tears, that scene was just simply heart-breaking.
I'm glad they made over that 1%, but it appears it isn't over yet :p

sooo why on earth am i rewatching this series again while Zero is airing? I have no idea. more pain? probably so. This episode... Honestly, I don’t really ship fictional characters that much, but Okabe and Kurisu... They’ve gone so much together in such a short amount of time and seeing them develop into this moment was a sight for teary eyes.

If I remember properly my 4 years ago self that watched this for the first time, this episode sealed the deal for me for Kurisu being my favorite character ever. She doesn’t say much about her own feelings (not to mention that she’s a tsun lol) but when she did, oh wow. “I’ll always be at the 1% barrier..” “Theory of relativity is so romantic... and so sad” Who knew these scientific lines would make me feel a lot of things. And up to when she kissed Okabe, it was the icing and the cherry to the cake. You thought she’s gone when Okabe bought her to the station, but she suddenly comes back to the lab (supposed to) telling Okabe that she loves him. She’s selfless, but deep inside she’s a bit... helpless, and Okabe brought her to the world of hope, at least in the alpha worldline.

And Okabe after her farewell made this episode one of my top favorites. His monologue before deleting the first d-mail, was really powerful. He was using chuuni-lines just to hide his emotions (leaving Mayuri and Daru out of the loop on what he’s about to do) and even after that, Mayuri at the beta-line wants him to cry.

To think that I was done with this show after watching it 4 years ago and playing the original VN, I’m thankful for Zero for resparking my love for this series, and I’m never letting it go.

Because if the ending is episode 22 episode 1 will be pointless and paradox lol
However, i agree and there might be a better way to deliver the message

Yea I knew but still I loved this epiosde and everything afterwords just diminished the impact of kusisu and okabes last moments together. I wish they had handled that in a different way.

Everytime Kurisu laughs like a mad scientist, it's always a good moment, her laugh is adorable! And just like the others, Kurisu herself got some memory from her other worldlines selves.

REJOICE FELLOW OKABE X KURISU SHIPPERS!!!
This is a dream come true, my hope for Okabe X Kurisu to have a full-fledged romantic relationship came true! Those hugs and those multiple kisses and the time they've spent alone together, it makes me really happy to see both of them showing their affection to each other! Both Okabe and Kurisu even eventually confesses that they do love each other! Such beautiful and satisfying events!

Yet... It's sad to think that this might be the last time that both of them will ever be physically together. Once Okabe goes back to Beta worldline, Kurisu will die. NOOO!!! I want both of them along with everybody else to live and be happy together as members of the Future Gadgets Lab. Yet that's just not possible in this scenario... The good things that have happened in this episode can be described as the calm before the storm.

After going back to beta worldline, the problem is not completely over?! Now WW3 is the problem, WTF?! How much more pain will Okabe have to experience?! He even can't fully bring himself to cry anymore. What the actual fuck though? WW3 Outta nowhere? I demand an explanation! SUZUHA!

OwO

I don't know if I cried so much during an episode. Everything was just perfect. I knew Kurisu would slap Okabe when he mentioned how emotionless he got and that he often didn't care when Mayuri die because he was just waiting for it to happen.

That kiss was just wonderful. Especially because they kissed again. He finally realized how much he loves Kurisu. And after all not being able to rescue her is just so sad. I think this hit me personally extremely hard because I made also the experience not to be able to help the woman I felt in love with ;_;

I think the 2 hardest parts were when Kurisu came back to say that she also loves Okabe and when Mayuri said that it's okay if Okabe wants to cry. That was to much for me. I'm glad I had tissues :(

Why is Suzuha back? And is she for real? Okabe has to stop the third world war? Oh boy...that's something. Can't believe only 2 episodes are left.

The real ship is Okabe x Moeka.

And that's how the scientist handled romance, applying theory of relativity to their romance. By the way they can always use the time leap machine lol.

I guess Mayuri remembered the Alpha world line.

So in Beta worldline Suzuha already figured out whos her dad is.

Seems Mayuri's life is heavier for a price than Kurisu's life.

Lol, so Okabe value Kurisu more than Mayuri, yet he choose to save Mayuri over Kurisu.

So there is romance after all. Didn't see that coming.

Lmao, WWIII??? That's the kind of dilemma I wanted to see. I knew the ending was playing too early, thank God I kept watching

Well Kurisu had to die anyway. That was the original world line remember? Where Okabe found her in that building; killed. Come to think of it...did you guys remember if it was ever confirmed? I already forgotten. Didn't Okabe only see Kurisu lying on the floor with a massive amount of blood around her? She could've been stabbed or shot but who knows! Maybe she's still alive? Just on critical condition.

Kurisu is just a normal character for me. Although it was heroic of her to think about others rather than herself. I feel so sorry for her and Okabe. Surely there must be some way for them to be together. As long as Mayuri survives too of course!

not gonna lie, this romance came out of nowhere for me. I never ever thought after watching all 22 episodes so far, that male MC and red hair chick had crushes on each other. I wasnt shipping anyone in this anime because there was no ship or hints, but its ok

It means that you wouldn't pay attention to the details or just simply don't how 2 immature, yet egoistic teenager behaves if they have crush on each other. How Okabe and Kurisu behaves with each other is completely natural.

For example, look at the scene from Ep12 when they are walking on the street (from 9:06 to 10:40). Don't tell me you don't feel the sexual tension between them. Okabe also calls her as his "dear companion" and blushes. Kurisu also blushes too. Then of course they starts to teasing each other to hide their embarassment.

Another example is Episode 11 (from 16:55):
K: I, um... I think of you as a companion. You told me before, didn't you? That I was your dear companion. That made me really happy, I guess.
O: Do you have a fever?
K: N-No! What? I'm trying to rethink my opinion of you... Stupid Okabe!

The lab coat scene from episode 4 is also like this.

I suggest you to do a rewatch. It is worth it! I rewatched this anime like 7 times, I guess, and still, during every rewatch, I can spot interesting details which I didn't recognized before. I never seen any show which has this high rewatch value as Steins;Gate!
