Steins;Gate 11

Steins;Gate

Not your typical chan-goer that’s for sure

Oh boy, the lab is certainly heading for dangerous waters here with the idea of sending one’s memories to the past. That plus Okarin’s “Reading Steiner” ability would be quite the powerful combination indeed if one was to fuck around with time lines and shit. Appropriately, the “creepy” factor of the show is going up with Okarin getting weird anonymous mails and SERN reverse-hacking the lab’s PC. I lol’ed though when Daru suggested they could use the LHC as much as they want.

Character-wise, Kurisu gets the bulk of the focus in this episode. Her quarrels with her dad is revealed and we get to see her and Okarin flirting quite a lot this week. The pudding part was hilarious, but the real show-stealer was her confession about her father to Okarin in the playground, for me. Also, Mayushii’s back with her “tuturu~” too! Yay!

    okarin X makise raise flags like there is no tomorrow
    though first thought of okarin was to save… mayuri
    but what if makise is really SERN agent?
    tuturu strikes back!

    Ewok’s right – all signs point towards the Okabe x Kurisu pairing. No doubt about it, too bad Mayuri’s been left out. At least she can get a metal oopa or something.

    so is makise really a SERN? or just misunderstanding from part time warrior?

    I might be wrong but maybe in the future – at least the dystopian one from which is coming our part-time guerilla – Makise was working for SERN. No proof though.
    Remember ep 01 – someone has killed Makise, who and why? and wasnt baito-senshi surprised to see her alive soon after that?

    Its actually very easy for this to be the start of SERN and Makise was actually the founder and not really a spy.

    No no no, Kurisu can’t be from SERN or at least not yet.
    Why isn’t anyone bothered by the fact that Moeka was so hung up over the IBN and how shocked she was when Mayushi leaked the idea of time leaping to her? Doesn’t that make her a more likely SERN suspect as compared to Kurisu?

    And I can actually imagine her sending creep hate scare mail to Okabe for some reason.

    well, shining finger certainly matches the sms threats but it can be easily red herring…

    Does Kurisu’s transference of consciousness idea sound exactly like ‘Reading Steiner’ to anybody else?

    Seems to me like Rintaro’s been sending his mind into other worlds from the very beginning, if not the past.
