I am also loving all the memes popping up around this series.
Spoiler :
I actually expected something to happen to her after the previous episode's foreshadowing. I imagine she might be revived through time travel, but something tells me this may also turn into what happened at the end of Madoka - unable to prevent her death in the next world line.

So there is "nothing to tuturu about" :(

Spoiler :
I really hope that they can save her. He saved Kristine in episode 1 right? Steins;Gate is definitely this season's best show.

after Ep12:
Spoiler :
Well, I'm basing my prediction on her character. Throughout the series its been mentioned that she is a "hostage". In a sense she may be a hostage of time (see prologue of ep12). Kristine, on the other hand, has/will become an agent of time because of her work on the time machine and the foreshadowing of her future deeds to foil the protagonist. It should be obvious who the soldier of time is, but I'm not too sure where Daku-kun, miss nyan-nyan, or Ruka-kun/chan fit in yet.
And I will end that rant here since it is starting to sound like something from Zelda OoT.

The last two episodes of Steins:Gate have left me feeling very numb.
Spoiler :
Any ending where Mayuri dies is just not a ending that I want :cry:

Animes like this one are truly the reason I still watch anime even if i dont talk about it much anymore. The characters, plot, semantics, really everything is in order and well balanced here. Its not overkill but plenty to keep you watching and the creative plot is a great hook, line, and sinker for someone wanting something fresh for a story.

Seriously tho man FFFF!
Spoiler :
Any ending in which mayuri dies is unacceptable, I'll ragequit.

Ton of unexpected plot twists, cant make heads or tails of whats goin on in this anime anymore other than saving mayuri. Still good, just staying interesting and weird, prolly what I like most about it anyway. I don't understand what causes things to change the future either. The last time he went back, he didnt really do anything event changing or maybe I missed it/didnt notice it, the devergence meter still went up though.

yeah, I don't even know what has and hasn't happened anymore. I still love the series though.

oh but,

Well, any little thing you do in the past has a high probability of affecting something in the future. I think theoretical scientist use something similar to chaos theory (I think Kurisu mentioned the butterfly effect at some point) to explain the effects of time travel.

Although, it is a causality problem, the meter is a great plot device to show us how each decision moves him to the goal.

After Ep17:
Spoiler :
I think the goal is to undo everything he has done to get the IBN5100, then erase their existence from SERN's network. Well, he has returned the Moe. Now, he will probably reverse "Shinning Finger's" text message - probably location of the IBN5100 - or send a message to himself or someone else prior to that message. That seems like it would be enough to get the IBN 5100 back, but maybe he will have to go further.

I wonder if he will have to also reverse Ruka-chan's gender back.
