It's because Okarin never did tell Ruka about the numbers before he sent the D-mail in the first place. What Okarin merely did was send D-mail with the lotto numbers to himself, he didn't tell Ruka directly.

And when Okarin time travels, he changes world lines mentally, not physically. John Titor confirmed that when timelines change, people's memories are altered and have no recollection of the previous timeline.

Okarin is the only person ever to have the ability to retain his memories when changing timelines, and because his memories aren't altered, he doesn't have any memories of the new timeline.

He physically did tell Ruka about the lotto numbers after he changed world lines, but his unique ability doesn't allow him to remember himself doing that, because he never had memories of himself telling Ruka in the first place.

I could go for an infinite supply of Dr. Pepper and Computer Parts...

Maybe if the Upas said 'tu~ tu~ ruu~' when I hugged them I'd be down for that...

Why does everyone spell CERN as "SERN" anyway? Did the game deliberately change it?

I don't think the real CERN would be cool with being accused of attempting world domination, even though they'll probably never hear of this anime/game. :P

It's basically the same reason people always eat at WcDonalds in anime. To avoid copyright/slander lawsuits and whatnot. And yeah, it's officially SERN. If you look onscreen at one point you can see it spelled that way in a document (forget exactly where).

A lot to digest from this episode, I'll have to re-watch to try to sort everything out. Suzuha has been the most interesting character to me so far, and I'm enjoying reading everyone's speculation.

Spoiler for My Suzuha speculation:


The additional music this episode certainly changed the mood. I'm not sure if I like it yet or not, the distinct lack of music in earlier episodes contributed to the strange atmosphere of the series.

Yeah I'm not sure who Suzuha is. She might be Titor, but at the very least it seems like a safe bet to say she's from the future. Maybe she's just one of a few freedom fighters from the future and it's just that John Titor is the most vocal of them . Did enjoy her checking for any signs of brainwashing.

Was nice that Kurisu decided to hang around for a while longer. While I'm sure part of it was not wanting to be lonely in the hotel by herself, part of it probably was being worried about Okabe.

How about Suzuha is trying to pull an archer and killing Kurisu is the only way to end it.

These are the two speculations on Suzuha that I like the most. Would be great if either of them ends up being the truth.

Episode 7 was another great episode, and I feel that the plot of this anime is really picking up at just the right time. Almost all of the cast has been fleshed out well by now, and viewers have all had a real chance to gain significant emotional investment in each of them.

The dialogue continues to be excellent, but I have to admit that if Episode 7 had lacked serious plot movement, the show would perhaps have lost a bit of its edge. Part of what makes the dialogue so good, in my opinion, is that as the circumstances involving the characters changes, we get to see the wit of the characters displayed against new plot backdrops, keeping everything very fresh.
