Steins;Gate episode 13

I believe this is the face of the many tuturu~ fans during this episode. Or maybe Okarin is just really shocked by the ground suddenly turning 45 degrees. Oh wait, that’s just yet another Steins;Gate dutch angle. This anime sure likes putting in dutch angles, don’t they?

I think anyone with half a brain cell knew that a simple fact like Mayushi dying in the last episode wasn’t going to remove her from the show. A plot so centred around time travel obviously wouldn’t let a simple fact like death get in the way of its favourite moeblob. What I didn’t expect was her to keep dying. Or more accurately, Mayushi dying being inevitable and unavoidable. You cannot fight fate. The second time Mayushi died was by the hands of Shining Finger yet again, so I thought that was down to Okarin not doing a particularly good job of protecting her. But the third time was a total fluke. Pushed in front of a subway by a little girl. That is no coincidence. More importantly, that was not something cooked up by CERN SERN. If it was anyone else who shoved Mayushi, I could have believed they were a secret agent or had been bribed or something. But not Mr. Brauns daughter. She is the only character in the series who would be incapable of such a thing. There’s no human forces at work here. This is the job of fate. The Death of the Tuturu must remain, no matter how many times you try.

Yes, all you Mayushi fans. No matter how much shipping material this episode might have given you, she will never survive. Ever. Not a chance. She’s dead. Hit by a train. A friggen train!

I’m not quite sure why I find this quite as funny as I do.

Sorry, but I will never care about Mayushi. Sure, the effect on the story is massive and I care about that. I care about how it effects Okarin. But Mayushi? She’s too bland and not much of a personality. She’s a moeblob. A plot element, used to effect the story. Which in itself isn’t such a bad thing. Madoka got by with its entire cast being nothing more than a gathering of plot elements with limited to no appeal as actual characters. But caring about her getting hit by a train because it’s Mayushi? Nope. I’d care if Okarin or Kurisu got lopped off. In fact, Kurisu did get lopped off, but they had already started to go back in time then.

…actually wait a second. If Kurisu died in the first time string, like Mayushi, does that mean she’s destined to die too? Heck, she was the very first character to ‘die’ in the series, if you count that dead body in the first episode. Noooo, it can’t be! We’re given too little information at the moment to make such prophecies. But the fact that Mayushi has to die is impossible to dispute. Unless you really think Mr. Brauns daughter is a double agent.

The face of deception.

Speaking of Madoka Magica, I’m sure many of you made the comparison between this latest episode of Steins;Gate to Madoka. Except for those crazy ones amongst you who have yet to watch Madoka. In which case, what are you waiting for? Get on that now! Well, there’s also the crazier group of people who don’t like Madoka, but I prefer not to talk about them. Anyways, Madoka spoilers from here on.

And hey, since we’re talking Madoka.

    That episode reminded me of 2002 remake of The Time Machine. If memory serves, it has the same “You can’t fight fate with time-travel” motif that results in the dude’s girlfriend being killed over and over. I think she actually gets run over by a carriage, which is eerily similar to the train scene.

    You bring up a good point with Kurisu. She was the second person to die(as far as we saw) in Moeka’s initial raid on the lab… maybe her death is inevitable…

    And holy shit that Madoka video owns.

    Madoka most likely got its time travel inspiration from Steins;Gate, actually. SG came first, and it was made by the company that Urobuchi Gen is from years before Madoka came out.

    Okabe avoided Kurisu’s death by using the D-mail in episode one to create a world line where she doesn’t die, whereas Mayuri keeps dying because he’s traveling back on the same world line. I understand that he was panicking to save Mayuri by the most direct means necessary, but he needs to calm down soon and try to think of another means to save her instead of rushing off on his own.

    Also, no comment on Suzuha taking out the goons or Mayuri’s role in transforming the dashingly handsome little Okarin into the mad scientist HOUOUIN KYOUMA we all know and love?

      Does anyone know if Gen Urabuchi wrote Steins;Gate too? There’s obviously quite a few similarities between the two, and he does work for Nitroplus. It would be quite a good year for him if these were both his work.

      Also no mention of the other things because fuck if I’m going to write about everything in an episode when I can post Madoka crossovers :D

    I thought the third instance of Mayuri dying was kind of silly, although I did get the point of it (to show that Mayuri dying is inevitable, or at least appears to be as such right now). The method of dying is just so dumb, though. “Oops, accidentally pushed you in front of the subway train! Waaaaaaaah!” Wasn’t really executed (lol) very well, I think.

    Mayuri, proud producer of the Most Annoying Sound, easily my least favorite character in the past half year, was killed not once, but three glorious times in increasingly blunt and brutal ways.

    She was smashed by a fucking train! Now that is a way to drive a point home. No, Okarin, fuck you, Mayuri is dead and that’s final!

      C’mon you can’t seriously be saying that Mayuri is more annoying than other roles Kana Hanazawa’s played this year. Shiro and Nessa are on that list…. NESSA!?!

      Well then sir, a tuturu to you too!

        Stein’s gate is a show I like, so having a super annoying character in it has way more impact than in Deadman Wonderland (which is entirely shit – Shiro can hardly make it much worse) or Fractale (which I dropped after the second or third episode).

        So yeah, in their respective contexts, Mayuri is the worst.

  5. Posted June 30, 2011 at 12:15 am | Permalink

    ^Well in response to Mr. Anon there – though she’s annoying at times, you can bet all your money that Okarin is going to try his hardest to save her from her untimely death.

    Maybe they will save Mayuri by letting Kurisu die, because only one of them can survive or something like that.
    I doubt that Mayuri is completely out of the game. Kurisu didn’t die again after they saved her. If Mayuris death is unavoidable, why was the death of Kurisu different?
    They might make it so that only the death of one of the two is guaranteed. And Okarin has to decide between his moe blob and Kurisu. (Well I would choose Kurisu but he does know Mayuri for a long time.) I don’t know how they would justify something like that, but you can justify anything with enough techno babble!

      Huzzah for technobabble!

      Of course Kyouma would choose Mayuri to survive over Kurisu, but I seriously doubt it will come down to that

      • Posted July 1, 2011 at 4:00 am | Permalink

        There’s one slight problem with that:

        It’s not Mayuri’s death that causes the timeline split between the implied two future Dystopias… It’s KURISU’S.

        Interestingly enough, the solution to all the upcoming time travel madness will be… Oops, that’s a spoiler.

    I haven’t watched Madoka, because I want to watch it after I buy my new computer in July, so I can see it full screen instead of the little two inch frame I have to peer through now. It did remind me of Run, Lola, Run, a movie in which the protagonist keeps “rewinding” to avoid the tragic results of her actions.

  8. Posted June 30, 2011 at 12:30 am | Permalink

    Yes I agree, I also noticed the uncanny similarity of Okabe and Homura, and as I was watching this I was thinking: hey…what came first…Magical Girls or Time Machines? LOL
    And Braun’s daughter who pushed Mayushi off the platform, it was an accident, yeah right…I think those SERN people bribed her with candy XD

    Those vids are cool, once of the great things about the internet :3

    Posted June 30, 2011 at 3:25 am | Permalink

    If Homura is Okabe and Madoka is Mayuri, then Mami is definitely Daru. A much better fit than Moeka

    Regarding Kur­isu, it appeared she was shot in the neck/shoulder, which shouldn’t be instantly fatal. As long as Okabe jumped back in time before she died you could probably argue that it wasn’t her fate.

    Also, Mayuri will never die so long as her spirit lives on, and by that I mean tuturu rings tones, figurines, creepy doujins and a general unwillingness to stare reality in the face. You sir have no soul!

    I certainly hope they go on to explain why time stops (perhaps only for Mayuri and Okabe?). It’s probably just a MacGuffin but when the hourglass in the lab stops flowing too? Gravity is being manipulated as well as time itself?

    • 3242
      Posted June 30, 2011 at 4:26 am | Permalink

      Well, if time is being stopped except for select people moving, that would probably mean that gravity is acting, but its stopped with everything else… except for them select people (SERN crazy people that think they should kill people for the sake of the letters “FB”)

    • Scamp
      Posted June 30, 2011 at 2:02 pm | Permalink

      Now that you mention it, the hourglass stopping moving doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. That’s just gravity. It’s not like letting go of Kyouma’s phone suddenly leaves it suspended in mid air or something

        Let’s avoid looking at this scientifically. Time stopping would do more than stopping clocks, obviously :P

    Theory:
    When world lines split; they try to merge back into one world line again, sort of like magnets, but if the change is too big, they stay around the same amount different with the two factors acting on it, but it causes what your referring to as “fate” with them staying the same amount similliar/different so that things that can still be the same (I.E. mayuri DEATH) will be the same.

        Posted June 30, 2011 at 4:32 pm | Permalink

        yeah; but then they still have the relationships anyways~ Since time would be trying to right itself back to its normal way, I think their relationships partly show it, which may probably lead to the same people being born in the future and such.

    That first video. It will be rewatched many times.

    And yes, I was happily dancing on Mayuri’s grave again. Good times, good times.

    They can change the past like Akihabara moe culture placed somewhere else, and trap into flat chest which means there’s actually something wrong with what he’s doing that’s why he doesn’t succeed

    Okabe simply kept on going to the past of his current timeline that’s why it doesn’t change.

    • GentleGiant
      Posted June 30, 2011 at 6:06 am | Permalink

      Willing to bet he comes to this realization in ep 14, breaking all the hopes and dreams of those who wish she’d stay dead. Unless there’s some crazy scenario in which regardless of the timeline you’re on your fate is sealed at a certain time. I’m going with the former though.

      • Scamp
        Posted June 30, 2011 at 2:04 pm | Permalink

        Or he doesn’t make it to a time machine again. He’s been pretty lucky so far in being able to make it back to the lab each time. Heck, the first time he was almost shot

  15. Posted June 30, 2011 at 7:35 am | Permalink

    im not exactly a mayuri fan or supporter (maybe sympathizer), but as a shipper i’m going to hope (and assume) that kyouma will realize that perhaps he needs to d-mail mayuri back instead of just time-leap back. something tells me, though, that a d-mail isn’t going to solve everything. maybe christina dies instead of mayuri in the next world line, or mayuri is already captured/dead, or something else along those lines.

    actually the prospect of kyouma chasing a dying/disappearing mayuri through time with continuous failure gives me more shipping fuel than anything combined, so your emphasis of mayuri staying dead DOES NOT WORRY ME AT ALL. the more hopeless and tragic, the better.

    that madoka video is beyond awesome. so then if kyouma = homura and mayuri = madoka, then does mayuri become god? XD given the weird dream from the previous ep and kyouma’s analogy to her being swept away to the heavens, i wouldn’t be surprised if something like that were the case o____o

    Pitiful Mayuri. Her only fault is being created in this anime with a certain level of airhead and ‘moe’. Those brutal demonic barbarian bloggers suddenly start firing all sort of insults and laugh at her dieing, even tough she didn’t do any harm to anyone.

    No seriously, regardless of her ‘moe’ characteristics her foremost important attribute is her holding Kyouma dear and Kyouma holding her dear. She is kind, innocent and toughtfull of everyone in the lab. But no she keeps getting laughed at her repeated deaths, like she is some kind of evil dictator who ruled over bloggers. The humanity!

    Steins Gate producers have a dutch angle fetish, Scamp. That’s why.

      It says everything I wanted to say because the rest of you are laughing at the death of someone who the main character holds dear. If that happened to you, you wouldn’t be laughing. Just imagine someone would be laughing at your best friend dying. Not funny. Maybe I’m taking this too serious, but death has always been a delicate matter for me.

        No, life is a serious matter, that comes second to none other. But since we are talking about the life of a ‘unreal’ person it isn’t that much of a crisis. Yet I would still like to see everyone trying to keep their morality, by not making fun of a persons death.

        From a Watsonian perspective, Mayuri’s death is tragic, and I feel for Okabe.

        From a Doylist perspective, Mayuri being squished by a train is fucking awesome.

    • Posted July 2, 2011 at 4:29 am | Permalink

      Darn, I always jump on the cool comment party late, I totally agree with you folk, Mayushi is a very sweet little thing, why must everything be about characters “who are multidimensional/receive development etc”, To be perfectly honest, saying that you dislike a character because of some fancy thing like being planar is just another way of saying “I dislike this character because I don’t like her”.

      Having said that, I am ashamed to admit that I enjoyed that video and the montage of pictures coming out of 4chan, I am such a bad person. I also gave a slight chuckle when she went in front of the train, not because I dislike her, or wanted her to die, but because of the futility of poor Okarin’s efforts.

    “A plot ele­ment, used to effect the story.”

    In anime or literature, maybe. Oh the cruelty of literature! I’m always feeling the torture when some of my characters in my stories get’s killed. They are all my children, after all. But what you said still makes you sound cruel. If you’re describing her as a mere plot element, it also shows that you don’t really care that much about characters anymore, seeing them as mere being you can obtain enjoyment from. And if they don’t deliver that enjoyment, you view them as not being needed and feel happy when they die, feeling they finally have a purpose, getting a reaction from the characters who care about that character, which you can gain enjoyment from again. No wonder you don’t like melodrama, where you need to care about the characters, and have the ability the project the fictional reality on your own reality. (That’s why melodrama is often Slice of Life and realistic, with one or two mystical elements mixed in, since there’s always the lingering scent of mystery in our air. Things we can not explain. Everything is possible after all, and reality is a lot stranger that fiction, because fiction is limited.)
    Okay, I’m sorry, that was harsh.
    Uhhh… I’m just a little bit mad. Very mad. Okay, maybe only a bit.
    Ignore me?
    … I’m not very good at being mad. I feel the need to apologize afterwards immediately.
    Well yeah, but what I’m trying to say is that I don’t like you talking about death like that. That I’m mad won’t probably change anything (since your miles away from me), aside from the fact that one of your followers in Germany, who refreshes your page every day like a crazy stalker is a bit dissapointed.
    …I’m sorry!
    And I really like Steins Gate. It’s not like death is a forbidden topic, I only want you to remind you that going “Hurray, Mayuri is dead!” is kinda heartless.

      Nice, we realy shouldn’t think of characters as mere plot elements. Every character has a certain signifigance to the story, especialy when they’re a character who has direct influence on the feelings of the lead character.

      I think people on this thread are mature enough to realize how you feel. No need to feel awkward.

    • Posted June 30, 2011 at 6:18 pm | Permalink

      lol, your comment makes me think of scamp as drosselmeyer from princess tutu, fighting against the wishes of his own characters so he can kill them off and cause some plot-related drama. in death they will serve the purpose of the story: tragedy!

      i do feel, though, that people have a misconception of mayuri, however. i feel that if mayuri was as complicated a character as people want her to be, it would just be shipping fodder with kyouma and her death would serve just as shipping war fuel vs. christina. mayuri’s lack of depth and development lend her an other-wordly mystic and mystery, furthered by the dream kyouma had where he was chasing her across time. who is she anyways? in some ways im led to believe that perhaps mayuri isn’t human at all, which is why she has been presented as a mere moeblob and without typical human complexities and faults. who knows. it’s unfortunate that her only quality now is typical moe stuff; i feel we’re going to learn a lot more about her in future eps.

      i do have to make a correction…melodrama refers to the over-sensationalizing of dramatic events with the sole purpose of trying to draw an emotional response from the audience, which usually has a negative connotation, especially among critics. melodrama is usually used to describe things like soap operas with their over-the-top dramatic reveals and mascara-running cry scenes. it’s okay to refer to slice-of-life stuff and properly-done drama as just that, drama :D

      anyways, scamps just a hater since mayuri is a sad threat to his OTP.

      • Posted June 30, 2011 at 6:51 pm | Permalink

        Ah, I’m sorry. I meant drama.
        You know, my english. It’s not baaad, per se, but I have to look up a lot of words in the dictionary, and you don’t even want to know what it sounds like when I speak it. Which hopefully will never happen because then you will think that the stereotype “germans can’t speak english” is true.

        And yes, yes it is true.

        We don’t have that funny accent though that most media present us with (like saying “v” instead of “w” which is pretty funny because we do have a “w” too, or inserting random german words. I think a german would be pretty embarassed when he would adress an English person with “Guten Morgen”! Or as east frisian people would put it “Moin!” (don’t try this in Bayern.)) , we just speak kinda slow and mispronounce a lot.
        But hey, I’m better than some of my friends, my childhood friend can’t even type “because” right. It’s kinda sad, actually.

        Oh, you are all so nice. I still remember posting in a thread with the casual mention about me being bisexual, and I got bashed quite a bit because of that. I’m happy to see that the internet is also contains mature, kind people.
        Makes me think that the world -and the humans- is not half as dark and cynical as it is often enough presented in media. We are all from different countries and come from all kind of situations and families, and we are all able to be here and talk to eachother and about us and showing our own opinion, not being limited to the bounds of the respective society. Isn’t sharing all this a wonderful thing? Ah, I’m getting sentimental.

    Oh hell, I found her dying repeatedly funny as well. The train thing was just so out there, it would’ve only been more comical if she slipped on a banana peel before flying right in the train’s path.
    Still, the simple fact that she can’t survive doesn’t mean that Okarin won’t try to find a way to make it happen.

    No way Mr. Braun’s daughter could be a SERN agent, huh? There is one way, conviluted though it may be.

    In the future SERN recruit’s Nae and then uses their superior time travelling tecnology to Time Leap her back many years to when she was a little kid in order to operate as the least detectable secret agent ever. Though unlikely, I find this notion amusing :)

    After the second time Mayuri died, Moeka says “the one who died was Mayuri Shiina”, or something to that effect. This would mean that SOMEONE has to die ans SERN knows about it. Whether or not that someone has to be Mayuri is uncertain, though it does seem to have to be either Mayuri or Kyouma, maybe even Kurisu or Daru as well. What is certain is that SERN doesn’t know who, but wants to make sure it is the person of least use to them.

    Also, I don’t know if anyone else has commented on this in the last two SG posts, but someone should probably to go back and check if if the IBN 5100 disappeared after Moeka sent her D-mail .

    Hi, I’m denizen of Hollowland so that makes 5 Europeans and 3 of them speak Dutch (no relation to the Duch Angles those are from Germany). Sweet!

    I think you have to be pretty decent at English to realize that your English sux, in the Netherlands everyone who hasn’t failed or skipped a class and doesn’t have some kind of disability that prevents them from doing so has to take English classes from approximately the age of 12-13. And everyone seems to think that their English is peachy, while most of the time it isn’t. Not that I’m any better than most people but at least I know… Arghh, who cares about that? I came here to jap about Steins; Gate.

    During most of this episode I had to restrain myself from cluching my TV-screen and sceaming: Okabe get baito-senshi to be your bodyguard, she has some mad skilzz!

    And now I can’t remember what else I wanted to write about Steins; Gate. Oo, whatever!
