Steins;Gate: Boukan no Rebellion 16

The timeline is still really strange in Steins;Gate. How can Rintarou get the IBN5100 if he’s already met Suzuha? Think about it:

Iimeline 1:
1975: nothing happens
2010a: Rintarou doesn’t have the IBN5100
2010b: nothing happens
2012: SERN takes over world
2038: Suzuha goes to 2010b, creating Timeline 2
20XX: world at peace

Timeline 2:
1975: nothing happens
2010a: Rintarou doesn’t have the IBN5100
2010b: Suzuha goes to 1975, creating Timeline 3
2012: SERN takes over world
2038: Suzuha goes to 2010b, creating Timeline 4 (which is the same as Timeline 2)

Timeline 3:
1975: Suzuha gets the IBN5100
2010a: Rintarou has the IBN5100
2010b: nothing happens
2012: nothing happens
2038: nothing happens
20XX: world is free

The key point is that when Suzuha goes back to the past in 2010b and in 2038, her two travels make two different timelines. The line that would lead to their success is created when she travels back to 1975. There’s no reason why her travel back to 2010b takes her to the same timeline. Then again, a story about Timeline 3 would be as boring as watching paint grow on a grassy wall, so it’s forgiven.

P.S. What is Reading Steiner? If anybody stuck their memories in the time machine, they would be able to retain their memories through world lines—because it’s not their bodies travelling through time, it’s the information. If, say, Mayuri used the time machine to implant Rintarou’s future memories into herself, she’d not only travel through time, but would inherit a different identity! That would’ve been an interesting device for, say, Kokoro Connect…

The greatest part of Steins;Gate was its climax, when Rintarou did all sorts of crazy shit and it all connected back to the beginning like some bizarre circular argument typical of time-bending tales.

The greatest part of Boukan no Rebellion is its climax, when Daru did all sorts of crazy shit and it all connected back to… things.

What I’m going at is, Boukan no Rebellion focuses on Suzuha and so her most emotional moment was finding her father. Mayuri’s train of logic was executed well and there was no dearth of cheesy/teary goodbyes, so I guess it was a good scene.

That is, IF THE ART WEREN’T SO *~QUALITY~*

I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE ABOUT SUZUHA

Not Suzuha and Rintarou, not Suzuha and Kayano, but about SUZUHA’S MAGICAL ADVENTURES IN STONED HIPPIE DISCOLAND (a.k.a. the 70s). Maybe 70s Japan had fewer hippies, but the Zeitgeist is still there. IT’S THE FEELING THAT COUNTS

AND THE AUTHORS ABSOLUTELY SQUANDERED IT

Gone is the golden age of anime. Gone is the explosion of the Japanese auto industry. Gone is the unprecedented Japanese growth that pushed them into becoming the second-largest economy in the world.

What do we get as compensation? Backstory (read: rape)!

A textual approximation of this picture would be @_@

Because a free world means oppression! An oppressed world means freedom! If you oppress all the people who would oppress people, then nobody will oppress anybody! Except yourself! The joys of doublethink are myriad.

To be fair, Kayano’s arguments are pretty damn solid. Even Suzuha could only ignore the debate and focus on saving Nae. That’s why, y’know, people want world peace. And freedom. Steins;Gate provides a false dichotomy in which we must choose between the two—it’s pretty thought-provoking, but it’s nothing people haven’t done before. I’ll bet 70% of fictional dystopic utopias have an oppressed but peaceful society.

The whole rape insanity doesn’t really add anything except degrade Kayano as a character. Her ‘only believing in peace because mental breakdown’ shtick fallaciously destroys her arguments in our eyes, and we end up rooting for Suzuha to liberate the world. And disco.

Except not disco CAUSE THEY’RE NOT GOING TO THE SEVENTIES christ dig a rock

REWRITTEN POSTS YEAH~!

REWRITTEN POSTS AUH~!»


Steins;Gate: Boukan no Rebellion 12.5

Well, in the selfsame spirit of rewriting posts and moping about our lack of posts we’ve been undergoing all week, I suppose it’s time for a repeat of our previous Steins;Gate: Boukan no Rebellion post: a post… about anime/manga posts! You could even say that it’s a meta post!!!

But wait! I’ll also talk about Steins;Gate: Boukan no Rebellion. For one line: ‘Wow that Rounders girl is fucking retarded for somebody born in 2020. lern2assassinate.”

Actually, don’t learn that»


Steins;Gate: Boukan no Rebellion 12

OK, everybody. This will be a serious post, for once. The tone and atmosphere of the manga demands one. Look at these photo-realistic photographs. How much more solemn can one become?

No jokes here»

Argh, so I’ve got allergies, and I’m feeling pretty allergic right now. I’ll probably even skip Chinese school tomorrow. Have a picture of my face. Sweating. From being allergic to allergies. (DISCLAIMER: I’m not actually that fat.)

Do you know what else sweats? Mushrooms. Look at our updated Fanart page with updated fan art that isn’t fan art but it’s updated. There is a sweaty mushroom on the top. It is a mushroom and it sweats. Just like me. I’m allergic to mushrooms.

In other page-related nonsense, look at our updated ANIBLOG BETTING Round 1 page with updated ANIBLOG BETTING that isn’t Round 2 but it’s updated. There are betters at the top. They are betting and they better bet. Just unlike me. I’m allergic to betting. If you want to join, join NOW and IMMEDIATELY: also, if you’ve already joined, you can now ALTER what KIND of FAKE MONEY you are betting for. I’m not confident that the exchange rate of nondescript pieces of pony innards to Midas Money is exactly one-to-one but this entire ANIBLOG BETTING thing is all guesswork.

In other post-related nonsense, look at az’s updated Jormungand 3 post with updated Jormungand 3 that isn’t Jormugand 2 but it’s updated. There is an image on the top. It is an image and it Jormungand is pronounced ‘Your Mom Gand’. Just like me. My name is actually ‘Your Mom Gand’.

In final Steins;Gate-Boukan-no-Rebellion-Chapter-Eleven-related nonsense, Daru’s a pretty cool guy, but the anticipated drama about him being Suzuha’s father (with him accessing the time machine with his fingerprints etc.) completely falls apart when we already know. Whoops, forgot to put a [SPOILER ALERT] there. It is a spoiler and it spoils. Just like mushrooms. I’m allergic to mushrooms.

P.S. Yes, predederva did in fact bet with himself. He lost. But he also won. Simultaneously.
