In regards to episode 12, after reading comments, I can't help but feel weird that I didn't find the mystery of the song surprising or confusing at all. I guessed it was a case of bootstraps almost immediately. And honestly, I feel like it made the whole mystery completely pointless, considering that closed loops kind of sap the meaning out of everything.

And really, what most would call a "bootstrap paradox" isn't even really a paradox itself; it's any attempt to break the loop that would cause a paradox.

In regards to episode 13, what is the deal with Y2K? I mean, I know what it's referring to, but why was it important for Suzuha and Kagari to fix? It was never referenced as a problem in the original series; hell, Suzuha wouldn't have even been able to fix it in some, if not all, strands of the Alpha line. And while it could just be an excuse for Kagari to have been lost in the past, didn't Suzuha go to the year 2000 for the whole 'John Titor' thing anyway? Couldn't Kagari have been lost there? And yeah, I guess none of this is really that important, it just seems strange to me, unless there ends up being some greater importance to the year 1998.

And why does Maho just vanish like that! After the last few episodes I expected her to be part of the gang regularly. Harem blocking should be a crime!


She and Leskinin had to return to the US.

It was mentioned in the original VN if not the Anime. It was listed as a convergence point in the Beta Attractor Field. In the Alpha Attractor Field Y2K was not a problem, so it wasn't a convergeance point there and Titor never traveled to it. In the Beta Worldline it really was a problem.

Remember Convergeance points are especially important parts of history. In the Alpha Worldline, Okabe creating the Phonewave was a Convergeance Point.


I really like how the anime is mixing up the VN's routes. Maybe there is a bit too much foreshadowing though.

Holy shit dude. The suspense is real. I knew fucking doctor Leskinen was up to something.

White Fox, what the heck are you doing with this anime?! Did this have Gehenna's Stigma stuff in it (That's the one route I didn't do, so...) (But wait, Kagari isn't introduced in the Mayuri route at that point, so was all of this original?!)?! If this was original, then props to White Fox on this one!

Also nice hints, episode. I'm pretty darn certain most people will be able to figure it out at this point (in fact, a lot of people over on Reddit have). And like I said in last episode, this current predicament was foreshadowed since the OG Steins;Gate itself.

Plus, they finally show the gloves, but it's inconsequential at this point.

Oh I am so confused is the Kagari and Mayuri relationship hot or not, I'm with Itaru is this yuri? Kagari suddenly having a personality is kinda of weird too, and why did they suddenly stop being protective of her? Having her under watch and now ' ehh let her walk around alone who cares'.

You know, upon further consideration (and after just watching Chibi's review for this episode), I might be wrong about what they're doing with Kagari at this point. So I really shouldn't have been saying crap like "Hyuk hyuk this was foreshadowed back in the OG series". I wouldn't be surprised if they started the anime with Kurisu-Route-Kagari and ended with Mayuri-Route-Kagari. Granted, that possibility would likely end up axeing an important chapter from much later in the story (and more importantly, some heavy Okarin trauma), but I'm going to keep an open mind from here on.

(If you're an anime only then this post is just gibberish)

My interpretation is that Kagari's mind is clearly not in a fit state. I made some speculations on the previous page, and you probably saw that after credits scene, so to cope, she clinged dearly to her only pleasant memories - that of being with Mayushi.

I was thinking about the lapse in security too, though I guess they've watched her initially for some time now that they trusted her to stay put. She had a sudden urge to treat people with sweets for the party, so her impulse caused that trouble.

I'm watching the dub which is 2 weeks behind and it just makes me realize how much foreshadowing they are using in this show.

In episode 11 Kagari is fixated on a car commercial playing Mozart's "Magic Flute" which I believe is the song they used to activate her homing beacon brainwashing

Just saw this on reddit

the fact that they show Kagari seems to be a bit of a spoiler

Also the image kind of suggests a change from the Visual Novel

That new dress with the very high cut skirt on Moeka is looking good too.
