Kurisu isn’t dead, but since the divergence meter is now going the opposite direction she very well could be soon if things keep going as they are. Ever since episode 1 the divergence has been counting down from a certain number. I won’t say it because it wasn’t shown in the anime, but the next number that was actually shown should give you a good idea of where we started. Anyway now the number is going back up and away from the 1% barrier which we supposedly needed to cross for a decent future.
“Anyway now the number is going back up and away from the 1% barrier which we supposedly needed to cross for a decent future.”
I think you’ve got it backwards. The number went up towards 1%. That’s a “0.—-” in front of the other numbers. The divergence actually became closer to a change in time lines. However, whether that truly means a good or bad future is yet to be seen.
No one ever said which direction the 1% needed to be, just that a change of 1% needed to be made. For example if the world lines started a 5.123456~ and got gradually shifted to 6.123456~ that would be 1%, likewise a change from 5.123456~ to 4.123456~ would also be 1%. You’re simply confusing actual numbers with percentages. ;)
