A funny yet very sad and romantic episode for me
This is what I've been saying from the start! Don't mess with time Okarin!
What hurts the most must have been when he heard ruka said that if this is the way how things goes, he would
have never wished to be a girl. So basically, he did more harm than good although he never intended to.
too lazysad and deprived now to actually speculate on the next episode but if I have to say,
Moeka's dmail will probably be the hardest to undo since I'm guessing she's with SERN since the start of Steins;gate
and joining might be her motive from the start.
Other than that sad part in this episode, the rest was very funny, really good comedy
ok..I should probably stop.
I hope feyris and ruka's role in the story are not over yet and I'm sure that they'll do something later in the story.
Oh and Okarin is a really sweet guy, he could had just sent that dmail and change her back to a guy
but before that he gave her a nice memory.
and Kurisu is jealous
LOL~ So true. That joke about a virgin asking another virgin is just too much.
Hmm, Feyris and Ruka since the beginning have only been some kind of side characters to brighten things up a bit, right? I imagine that their role from now on would mostly try to cheer Okarin a bit, but looking at them would make him sad, I guess. And Kurisu is jealous. Sitting like that in the cafe, asking for a consultation, she might have asked for a short date herself. XD
To sidetrack a little. Actually, in the visual novel they play pretty important roles and have their own "routes" and own "endings" if I'm not wrong unless Steins;gate is a linear visual novel. I'm not sure but I really hope they do something in the future tooQuote:
But I guess I'm more interested in Okarin, Kurisu and Mayushi than them
she's in love
They may remember the other timeline in great detail OR it may be kept unconsciously. Now that I think about it, I'm sure Feyris and Ruka having knowledge about what happened in a different timeline will affect the time-space continuum... thing. Okarin himself being aware is enough. XDQuote:
I can't wait for the final showdown (?) between Okarin and Moeka. It's interesting how even though SERN is the antagonist, they're never actually shown as characters. Moeka is the exception, but even so, we don't know what her role is in the organization apart from giving orders.Quote:
Wow Steins Gate 19 was too good. Turns out Moeka isn't as important as we thought she might be, so I don't know what she was talking about the pictures to prove she had been there...
But wow it's getting pretty exciting now. Looks like Okabe is nearing a direct confrontation with SERN and the guys behind it. I think there's only about 4 episodes more though isn't there? I think I read it's slated for 24-25 episodes.. I'm not sure if that's what they estimated early and now they'll extend it a little, or if that's the final total count.
Then again it does look like pretty much all the loose ends are being wrapped up and such.. so it ending in 4 episodes seems plausible.
Yes, Steins;Gate was planned to end in 24 episodes. Looking at how it's going at the moment, I also think that it is very possible that 4 episodes would be enough to conclude the story. Hopefully they would do it without leaving plot holes, or else I'll be mad. XD
I've just seen episode 19. I'd say Moeka's role in stealing IBN 5100 is important. She is asked to befriend Okarin and be part of the lab member, then lead him in a way to another until they can secure IBN 5100 which would prevent Okarin from knowing what SERN had done and shape the future the way SERN wanted it to be.
I'm confused about something. After Okarin undo the first D-mail about Moeka changing her phone, it didn't work at first, right? Moeka still changed her phone. But when Okarin undo the second D-mail about stealing IBN 5100, the phone was different; she didn't change the phone. What actually happened there? Okarin said himself that Reading Steiner was not activated. Was it my imagination? O__o
At any rate, it's getting closer to the end. I so can't wait to see the real identity of FB and SERN. I have a bad feeling that FB might be someone close to Okarin, or someone he knows... But anyway, I'm expecting the best final plot twist. XD
So at first she didn't believe in strange future e-mails because she listened to FB, but when Okarin sent the second D-mail about stealing IBN 5100 she somehow changed her mind and the phone changed? I still didn't understand this part. XD
Ok...steins;gate just went from emotional to dramatic and..punching face..
Anyway, I like this episode. Had me at the screen the entire time.
That scene with moeka and all that fighting was awkward..and I'm not surprised at Okarin's rage.
Moeka is not..mentally stable..but I can understand her, loneliness and having someone to rely on..and you
start to always rely on that person emotionally . For her case, its obsessive.
More kurisu and okarin scenes, "you're not alone"
Okarin (and us) probably already got used to the time leaping.
I'm pretty sure in order for the twist to work, fb have to be someone completely unexpected..that will wow me
so I'm looking forward to it.
I enjoyed the pacing of steins;gate so far although others might beg to differ. It really feels like we are near
the end and all the loose ends will be tied up, including the biggest one of all, kurisu's death in episode 1.
Man, this anime have came a long way
I totally agree with you!
Moeka's obsessiveness is somehow scary for me, and also sad. Because she doesn't seem to have someone else who actually appreciate her existence (even though FB ditched her at the end as well). She would do anything to protect that only thing she has, even desperate for it. Poor Moeka. I hated her for killing Mayuri just because Mayuri had nothing to do with the time travel stuffs, but I think I could understand why she is like that.
Okarin and Kurisu. Okarin called Kurisu "Kurisu" more often lately, don't you think? He is very depressed with all these things. Poor Okarin. Do you think Kurisu acted like that because somehow she had the memories of what happened before Okarin did the time leap? *hopeful thinking for a tiny bit of romance* Anyhow, I don't think their story would go well, though.
Haha, from almost dropping this anime at the beginning to grow this attached to this series now, I sure have gone a long way with this. XD
that came to my mind was "FB is one of the lab members!!!1" but then, Moeka killed Mayuri in that similar timeline and captured the other members so that's not possible unless after she capture them she realized that one of them is fb.
So that means even after joining the lab and interacting with okabe and the rest..she still have no feelings towards them when she killed them..or that her feelings towards fb are stronger.
That's pretty sad.
Pretty sure things are set up this way for a bawl fest or maybe not, I'm not sure anymore.Quote:
I do find it weird that kurisu have no memories of the other timelines when the others have..
Yeah, the beginning of steins started off rather weak but it gradually gets better. First time watchers might drop it because of that but there's no doubt about how good it is for me.Quote:
You are attached to steins;gate and I thought I was the only mad fanboy
I couldn't imagine one of the lab members as FB. I couldn't imagine the mess it would have created if that is true. XD
First impression: woah there, Okarin. I understand his anger, but I never expected him to go to physical lengths. I was happy when he managed to get the cellphone and send the message. However, the jubilation was short-lived when it turns out that the D-mail didn't work... twice.
Moeka is clearly a psychologically broken person, and it's clear that all she wants is acceptance. Even though she was in contact with FB before meeting the lab members, what were her emotions when Okarin invited her into his group?
Another thing I'm wondering about is what FB stands for. Is it someone's initial or is it an acronym of an organization?
My first thought went to Facebook.
What I'm curious about is how FB could know so much and tell Moeka to go act around Okarin to get a position as one of the lab members. This FB couldn't possible receive a message from the future as well, right?
FB, FaceBook, yeah. Sometimes I think of that. Or, in other situations, it reminds me of "Future Gadget". Quite similar to what Daru did to name his works. I'm not accusing Daru of anything, lol, but that thought sometimes comes to me.
I'm really confused about the time line now. Which is the trigger and which is the cause can't be distinguished easily again. XD
