Things are getting more interesting I'm assuming. Man, the episode set those moods of the characters correctly, even I felt the same way.

After having watched the 5th episode I think I'm ready to make my call for the series. That way I can say "look I told you so" if I'm right.

This has elements of current plot spoilers and my future predictions (also might help confused people to piece things together lol):

Notes:
John Titor is a real thing that happened on the Internet in 2000. look it up. It's really interesting. Okabe could realistically have had a shelf of books about it.

John Titor said his mission was to go back in time (to the 70s) to get an IBM 5100 in order to prevent a Y2K-like catastrophe in 2038 (the unix timecode rollover - you can look that up too because it's theoretically real also). He said the IBM 5100 can translate programming languages (which is true too).

CERN (with a C) is a real physics group and there are tons of conspiracy theories about them. The biggest newsmaker was that with the completion of the Large Hadron Collider, people were worried that they would create a black hole and destroy the planet. So far so good :).
CERN is very exclusive and very rich, so it's easy to make stories about what happens behind closed doors.

Also remember that the John Titor original events do NOT subscribe to the time travel theory of "Back to the Future" where there is one timeline (past affects future directly). They follow the theory that there are an infinite number of universes that split with every decision everyone has ever made (sort of like hitman reborn). Upon a time travel jump, the traveler lands in a new timeline which is a percentage different from their own reality. In this theory, if I go back in time and kill my ancestor I won't disappear or anything, so there are no time paradoxes. (Again, for more about this, read into John Titor).

Here come my breakdowns of current plot and predictions for the series:


LOVE IT. Here's to hoping I'm right... because this is AWESOME

I don't know if Mayuri have some kind of mental problem, but she is hella annoying. To me she is. I mean, whenever she said doot doo doo! I feel pissed for some reason. Maybe the secret organization that the weirdo guy was talking about will put her to rest.

Better yet, take a granade (the bomb) and put it in her mouth so it can blow her up to pieces.

Im sorry Mayuri fan, but that's just how I feel.

It has the same sci-fi color scheme that Time of Eve and Pale Cocoon have and somehow it makes it more realistic. The series also reminds of the movie Primer in that the phenomenon of time travel is achieved through experimentation with everyday objects. I can't elaborate on the plot because everyone will interpret everything differently but nothing in the series has let me down yet.

Lack of discussion here for the past 2 weeks, copy-pasta from my ANN post.

I think the pace is picking up now, even though nothing really serious has happened yet.

Onto Ep 8 discussion:



If anyone here can translate Japanese, would you mind translating the character bios for me from here: http://steinsgate.tv/character/index.html
Thanks in advance if whoever can does it.


The comedy and seriousness within this series is pretty balance, and I consistently laugh at Okarin's acting. His character is intriguing and comical because of his delusional acts. I have to say that Kurisu is really similar to Okarin in some ways, too.

I think the series is awesome. It does the one thing I want a show or movie to do when using time travel as its subject. And that is focus on the details. No show can explain everything about time machines on a grand scale, but when they focus on one or a few small things it makes everything seem more plausible. Reminds me of the move Primer, and that's a very good thing.
