I recently got into Steins;Gate, and I really really love it. Do I play the visual novels, and will that explain what I didn't see in the anime?
What's on your mind?
I just rewatched steins;gate the other day and finally I'm able to connect the dots.
PS: This has nothing to do with Steins;Gate 0 (I haven't watched it yet lol so I can't connect the dots there)
CAUTION SPOILER AHEAD
1. The timeline in Episode 1 is what happened in Episode 23 - Focus Point: Makise Kurisu.
- That's why Okabe got the Metal Oopa
- Okabe unable to talk that's why Makise drag him out of the room.
- That's why Makise Died (I'll explain on the bottom)
- That's why the video unable to be played
- This point, the world war was bound to happened but it didn't become the main problem because we're taking the point of view of Okabe1 (Okabe episode 1).
Here the timeline is already split and Okabe1 are going to experience hell for 3 weeks thus why 1 month after achieving 1% divergence, Suzuha came to meet Okabe23 asked for help to prevent the WW3
2. Episode 24 is to end the world war - Focus Point: WW3
- the video played and Okabe24 have to deceive Okabe1 AND Prevent WW3.
- the interaction different with Episode 1
Now, you must be wondering why bother doing time travel twice making 2 different timeline where:
1. Kurisu really died and WW3 happened.
2. Kurisu alive and WW3 won't happen.
Kurisu died and WW3 happened is to give future Okabe reason to stop WW3 and idea to save Kurisu so Suzuha had reason to come back through time like Episode 23. That's why Episode 1-22 exists, so basically it acts like a trigger and nothing more than that.
Although only act as a trigger, it's super important for Future Okabe to plan the "save Makise Kurisu" twice just as Suzuha said after failing the 1st time (Or as Okabe said, it's 3 weeks of hell that bound to happen).
The turning point is the 2nd time travel on Episode 24 which is to cancel the timeline of episode 1-22 as if they were never happen BUT with different outcome where Kurisu alive, WW3 won't happen, time machine was never made in the current timeline and Suzuha was never go back in time. The End
Summary: There are 2 different world were seeing (the Makise died & Makise live), both happens where "Makise died" leads to process in episode 1-23, while "Makise live" is a same process, different timeline and it turns out Makise still alive after reaching divergence 1% and Okabe just changing his world past by "tricking" the world itself by making it think Makise died on the exact moment where She suppose to die. Hard to explain with a few words but it'll take too long for that and I don't have much strength for that lol
Hope it helps!
Hypothesis time. We only observe one timeline's Hououin at a time. The question is, does Reading Steiner also rip our mad scientist from other timelines?
I feel like that just one timeline wouldn't justify the amount of feedback he experiences,
That would explain in the 0 VN why one trip could break him so much. Imagine the exponential psychological element of seeing Mayuri die time after time. Then the compounding of Kuristina.
So i'm watching stiens:gate 0, and oddly enough, at the end of the ending song, it says, inside the world line, inside the world Layer. So what is the world LAYER referring to?
I am new here
I'm on chapter 18, but there's something that doesn't make sense to me, and that is that how is it possible that he can send D-mail without having the IBN?
How do luka and fayris send their d-mails??
The reason for this question is because:
To send a d-mail to a device, it must be connected to the "phone microwave".
So, For luka to be able to send a d-mail to her mom's pager, the pager must be connected to the phone microwave. how did they do that???
Also, for fayris to be able to send a d-mail to her dad's phone, his phone must be connected to the phone microwave. And I didn't see any part where his dad's phone has been taken into consideration.
Soooo... is this a mistake of the anime, or have I gotten something wrong...(or missed something)
Does Makise and Okabe officially go out in the anime then get married?

Can someone please tell me the watch order for Steins;Gate, please, and thank you.
I read the manga and I thought why not watch the anime as well.
How deleting the first d-mail from the database changed the timeline to the timeline where kurisu dies, it was not like the other dmails that sent emails canceling
I haven’t read much on theories on Kagari besides her being the daughter of Okabe and Makise. There is no doubt she almost nearly resembles Makise. I don’t believe that she was the child of the two, speaking from a genetic standpoint. I know anime doesn’t care about genetics. It’s anime. The characters have pink, purple, blue, and green hair. Genetically, I would assume the child of Makise and Okabe to have dark eyes and hair because of dominant genes. I believe Kagari looks too similar to Makise. I believe that she is Makise. Not actually, though. Rather, a clone of Makise. A while ago I watched a video of cloning dogs where DNA from the original dog was injected into an egg with no DNA. The dog grew to look exactly like the original, but it did not act the same due to the environment it was raised. I believe this might have been done by Strategic Focus to bring back the genius brain itself to learn the secret of time travel. I haven’t thought too much into this to see if there are any errors in my theory. What are your thoughts? Did Kagari just happen to look almost exactly like Makise for shock value?
So is the series for Steins; Gate finish, or is it still ongoing...
Like is there gonna be a season 3?
I don't know if it is ever mentioned but what kind of scientific field is Okabes.
It seems somthing in Physics
