Steins;Gate 08


Oh dear, Mayushii can be pretty scary when it comes down to cosplaying. Poor Ruka-kun. Or is it ‘-chan’ now? God damn, I wanted Okarin to grope Ruka to confirm, but apparently he’s too weak for that! I’d like to think it didn’t work though…. herp derp.

Mmm, I liked the balance between the story and character development in this episode that was also spiced up with some humorous elements like Mayushii’s obsession on making Ruka cosplay, Ruka’s desire to be a girl and Kurisu finally finding out about Ruka’s true identity. Daru’s commentary is sharp as usual too and it’s almost hard to believe that it’s Tomokazu Seki voicing him at times.

Also, that double “tuturu~” combo of Mayushii and Nae! I want more of that :P.

    We need a world line with a yandere Mayushii ! Since we already get more and more tsundere Kurisu with the change of lines it’d only be just. Also Daru’s “Japanese… do you speak it ?” was some pretty random translation.

    i think the anime became more interesting after this point and made me love it more …

    If only the VN was translated.

    This is rare. Usually it is the guy who has a Bridget dropped on them. (If you don’t know what that means, look it up on Tvtropes.)

    Ruka for trap of the year!

    Hahah, that was hilarious. Especially the whole “DEEP PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTACK!” the BGM that played when Okarin and Christina stared at Ruka was just great. Such a trap this Ruka is.

    The amount of droopiness is worrying me. Last seriously droopy character I can remember turned out to be the main villain with a god complex.

    Wait! Tomokazu Seki is voicing Daru… oh fuck, I’ve failed to recognize him.

    @ Syaroan Li

    It is him indeed.

    I am waiting for him to call Moeka as SHINING FINGER!!!

    The loss of Shining Finger will be mourned. I missed the shy, yet persistent girl.
    That aside, the escalating experiments, Ruka’s desire to be a girl, and Kurisu’s discovery of that fact were sources of amusement, as well as fascination.
