Well that’s an…interesting way to translate 2chan speak into English. I have no idea what she really said, and I gave a real double take when it appeared, but I suppose it got her point across. Sort of.
This evil creature single handedly created the moe boom. But thankfully she realised the folly of her ways and reversed it so that only high-concept sci-fi stories with catgirls and gritty coming of age dramas with catgirls are made in anime today. Although there is a problem with Steins;Gate’s time travel method. Unless you’re like Kyouma and jump streams with the changed past, you won’t move into this newly created dimension. Your message was sent into the past, but it’s a past that is not part of the one you live in. Hence, you can change the past of a different dimension, but not the one you live in. In this case, Feyris merely created another dimension where Akihabara never suffered the plight of the moe, but she still lives in the same dimension where the message she sent to the past never existed. Err, this might be rather difficult to follow, but the thrust of my point is that you can’t change your own past. You can only change the past in a different dimension, which you create by sending that message into the past.
That is, unless you have Kyouma’s magical power, whatever he calls it. Stein’s Finger? Or was it Steins;Finger? Anyway, if you have Steins%$&;#Finger, you jump along these threads into the new dimension created. I wonder if that means there is only 1 Kyouma, and everytime there’s a thread jump, the Kyouma in the other dimension stops existing altogether? Either way, it doesn’t matter. With Kyouma as our point of view, we’d never see those old dimensions anyway. He’s not exactly the only one who can change the past. Anyone can do that. But he’s the only one that will be able to see that past be changed.
Now this is all provided Steins;Gate is running along the same time travel rules I am. The members of the lab are seeing the text messages being sent into the past, but they occur when Kyouma doesn’t perform one of his thread jumps. The texts aren’t significant enough to change anything, so they don’t create a new thread. Now the other question would be when exactly does Kyouma jump threads. Is it during every new thread creation due to time travel? Remember, he did a crazy thread jump in the first episode that wasn’t caused by the Phone Microwave (name subject to change). But what about all the Gel-Time Travellers
CERN SERN did? Did Kyouma jump during his childhood for every instance they changed time? That would explain why he’s mad in the head anyway. But the SERN folks were aware that time travellers were going back in time because they did see the Gel-People.
…so I guess that means my version of time travel is totally wrong. The SERN folks sent people back in time, and then were alive to see the results. Unless Jellyman also has Steinsµ¶♥†Finger. Argh, time travel, it’s bloody difficult to keep up with it.
Ah let’s just talk about how awesome Kurisu is instead. I love any instance she is able to one-up Kyouma because she spends most of the series otherwise pouting and blushing. Which is fun to watch in itself, but domineering sneering Kurisu is just that much better. Although it’s Kyouma who really makes her scenes spark to life. Without Kyouma, Kurisu would just spend her time making yuri fields with Mayushi (otherwise known as ‘girls being insufferably nice to each other‘), but having Kyouma around brings out both her sneering and tsundere sides, making her a much more entertaining and diverse character. Although it was still Kyouma who stole the show around her. I love how he still keeps that degree of social intelligence to him by trying to console and cheer up Kurisu, while remaining in Mad Scientist character.
