Steins;Gate 0 Episode 6: This looks familiar


Oh, is it time to ramp things up already? This show really isn't holding back with these cliffhangers. But that aside, this episode was pretty fun. I feel like there's a lot to be suspicious about, which makes it kinda entertaining to speculate.

Wait, how long was Kagari staying at Rukako's temple? The conversation is never clear on the timing of her amnesia. If she's been there the whole time, I have some follow-up questions.

Suzuha's suspicions are also pretty interesting. Her flashback indicates that something was wrong with Kagari before the time travel, so it sounds like there's more to her than the amnesia.

Well, at least Maho's willing to validate the idea that Kagari is too similar to Kurisu.

So, are you asking Rintarou to move on from Kurisu for his benefit or for some other reason? Not that I'm suggesting anything in particular...

I didn't expect Rintarou to get busted so casually. Still, this scene seemed excessively cruel for Mayushii as well.

I really liked the way this scene played out. Playing the analogous scenes from the alternate timeline really ups the suspense. Now, I'm just worried that this suspense will end up fizzling next week because of some kind of misunderstanding. They never actually showed Moeka, but I'm a bit suspicious of the fact that this happened after Rintarou called her about Kagari.

    so I'm pretty sure they're not the rounders for a couple of reasons:
    - no moeka there
    - different designs of masks + clothing (not really a strong point I know)
    - braun didn't know they were coming
    - still suspicious of american lady and the maho bit last episode, how she reacted to kagari
    - leskinen disappearing down the hallway last episode

    but other than that... we didn't get japanense shaman girls. worst timeline.

    braun did make a call, i guess D:

    also suspicious of the american lady. i noticed that there was a small scene where she looked back at some of the main characters as she was leaving with leskinen this week.

    *pretends not to know about the japanese shaman girls meme*

    I mean, there's no reason for sern to want to kill Mayuri anymore, is there? they dismantled the time machine D: and if it's because they somehow managed to find suzuha, why didn't they attack earlier, like after she first arrived?

    don't trust the muricans!

    also it was cool to see how suzuha's become more relaxed in this timeline. before, when she heard the rounders in the original, she was able to react in time to find a place to hide and ambush them. in this, she can't really do anything before they arrive D:
