Man... this "butterfly effect" imagery is giving me creeps on the potential here.

What did happen with the latest D-Mail?!

So what now? New episode no released, no talk about Ruka's gender at all and subs still refer to Ruka as him.

As for the episode itself.. That was amazing, as always. Can't wait to see what else they may have changed unknowingly.

A question about the episode.. Was Feyris' dad dead or something? If it was told somewhere, I might have missed it. Since Okarin asked who he is (her dad) it seems as if she sent a message to prevent his death and that's why Feyris never brought the moe culture to Akiba. Might be something else though, than his death.. hmm.

Did you completely miss the last minutes of the episode with the moe culture disappearing from Akiba? Not to mention Feyris' dad whom Kyouma supposedly has never met.

Yes, because I stopped watching at the credit roll ;D

Guess I'll go back and look.

Oh wait, looks like Episode 9 is out now. Had me thoroughly confused that I was missing something in episode 8.

Well looks like I spoiled you then, sorry . But indeed, we're talking already about 9th episode. I thought you were too since you said something about the butterfly effect..

Well not really, I kinda got that from some of the Nico Douga videos I've been browsing.

Occupational hazard of hosting Steins Gate videos on youtube ;D

Oh it's obvious that eating more veggies allowed the egg to create a Y barrier that only allowed the x chromosome containing sperm in. It also made those Y chromosome containing sperm more slower on the upstroke. Didn't they teach you guys that is school?

I am now amused that another discovery about Makise Kurisu has been made: She's a 2channer.

Feyris... finally! she and Mayushi in her school uniform owned the episode!

Some details on the ep.
  • 8:15-20 Mayushii X Kurisu, yuri field >9000
  • 10:00-10 Ruka was wearing the same school uniform as Mayushii

Anyway, it sucks that Akiba lost her queen along with her empire, I hope they correct it in the future, otherwise no more chance to see Feyris/Mayushii in maid uniforms

Okarin-"Is this the choice of Stein's Gate?"

Just thought of something.. If they lost IBN 5100, they never saw those Jellyman reports. If that's the case, how do they even know humans turn into jelly if they go through time travel? It was clear from this episode that they did know it would happen..

Oh, my post was too serious and focused on the plot development, I forgot to say this: the episode is still really hilarious, I literally howled with laughter throughout the phone convo between Kurisu and Okarin. I have to definitely say, the two of them have the best chemistry in all the anime I watched this season (sorry, JintanxNaruko). Kurisu is really my favorite type of tsundere, not just because she pulled off the perfect combination of sexy awesome and smart in that lab coat of hers or the fact that she's so much a nerd she knows memes, but I love that instead of being abusive she knows exactly how to handle her peculiar partner with all those delicious back and forth banter. Lots of that goes to the dialog as usual too, the formalized speech Okarin does at the end was great, especially the fact that he's still using (name pending) and made an error, but Kurisu noticing that is the icing on the awesome cake.

Other observations:
- Daru, not only are you a pervert, you're so easily seduced...
- Cosplay is one thing, but why does Mayushii have to wear a wig? Is it really part of the dress code?
- Hmm, Mayushii shows she cares about Okarin and felt that he's drifting away...interesting.
- As mentioned, Kurisu is a 2channer. Yeah, we should have guessed from the orz pose she did, although I expect her to identify a trap better (to be fair, Ruka is very high level).
- How very dedicated of Feyris, even out of work she still keeps her nyan-speech...maybe that's how she regularly speaks? She's literally the origin of moe itself after all, she's even the key point of the very existence of Akiba as we know it.

Btw, I just realized - Ruka's school uniform looks very similar to Mayushii's. Assuming that boys have a different version like it usually is, this means that it's certain that Ruka is a girl in this timeline? Since stupid Okarin didn't do a hands-on approach to check for sure...

Ishihara wishes he could use D-mails.
Nonsense.

Doujins still exist, and even if Akiba isn't nerd central anymore, to say it destroyed moe as a whole is preposterous. As long as there is one nerd, the culture cannot be stopped. It may exist in tiny corners of the internet, doujin sales that vanish as quickly as they appeared, cult series beloved by a few with the passion of many, but it still exists.

It always still exists. Hope and nerdery still exist!
