The Time Traveler's Lounge serves to contain discussions about future episodes of the anime series and events already covered by the visual novel.

Topics involving technology must be discussed at the Mad Scientist's Desktop, and any topics concerning neither technology nor deems a spoiler warning can be discussed at the General Discussion forums.

Title OriginEdit

The title is clearly a reference to Einsteins gate, because Einstein brought up the idea of world lines.


There is no end though there is a start in space. — Infinity.
It has (its) own power, it ruins, and it goes though there is a start also in the star. — Finite.
Only the person who (has) wisdom can read the most foolish one from the history.
The fish that lives in the sea doesn't know the world in the land. It also ruins and goes if they have wisdom.
It is funnier that man exceeds the speed of light than fish start living in the land.
It can be said that this is (a) final ultimatum from the god to the people who can fight.

— Original subtitle text from the Steins;Gate logo

宇宙に始まりはあるが終わりはない。 —-無限
星にもまた始まりはあるが、自らの力をもって滅び逝く。 —-有限

— Subtitle text in Japanese

The universe has a beginning, but no end. — Infinity.
Stars, too, have their own beginnings, but their own power results in their destruction. — Finite.
It is those who possess wisdom who are the greatest fools. History has shown us this.
You could say that this is the final warning from God to those who resist.

— Subtitle text spoken in episode 01, with fourth and fifth lines omitted

The universe has a beginning, but no end. —Infinite.
The stars too have beginnings, but their power accompanies their decline.  —Finite.
It the wise who are the most foolish. History has taught us as much.
The fish of the sea know not the world of the land. Were they to possess wisdom, they too would experience decline.
It is more absurd that humans should surpass the speed of light than it is that fish should start living on the land.
This can be said to be God's final warning to those who resist.

Adaptation Decay Imminent?Edit

Ever since the early release of the first episode in Nico Live, viewers have already noticed the unusually fast pace of the story. Changes done to the anime series adaptation can be discussed here.


Divergence numbers are hidden in the Steins;Gate logo.  There are two of them.
