Rightstuf just has the physical limited edition without the digital copy for $47. If you don't mind waiting for the shipping, it's the best deal.

>Lead translator Adam Lensenmayer of Funimation has decided to address the usage of memes in Steins;Gate

>”We have been getting a large amount of emails about the usage of Memes in Steins;Gate, the Japanese subtitled track will keep the memes in their original Japanese context and no efforts will be made to ‘localize’ them” Lensenmayer tells us.

>”However, in the context of the English dub track we have decided to localize the memes into a context that those familiar with western internet culture would understand. Daru’s lingo will be reminiscent of 4chan subculture such as lolcats and rickrolling while Kurisus lingo will be from reddit, we feel as if this would match the characters personalities”.

>Lensenmayer then later ensured us that even those not familiar with 4chan or reddit memes will be able to enjoy the show.

The end is nigh.

If they're sticking close to Steiners translation then we'll probably see shit like "Nope.avi" and stuff like that, still not ideal but there shouldn't be anything resembling reddit or 9gag memes.

I think the dub once used "OTP" as a meme? I have no idea. How did the anime dub handle all the memes?

>>100793033
The best way they can go about this is just being subtle with it.

>>100793141
Hard to do. The Japanese memes in the show are REALLY in your fucking face. To the Japanese viewer it'd be like if Kurisu started going "TROLOLOLO U MAD?" with Daru spouting "EPIC FAIL!" in the background.

Reddit is basically a socially acceptable content aggregator which mostly achieved its fame by stealing and bastardizing content from 4chan. Its userbase is much less harsh than ours and its content caters more to normalfags. Not a very appealing website to your average anon since most of the users on Reddit would be considered cancer and trolled out of 4chan in a heartbeat.

You're thinking specifically of SRS, which is a semi-popular radical feminism/cultural marxism subreddit populated by delusional landwhales and white knight 'male feminists'. It's pretty vomit inducing. I did a lot of doxxing and SE back when /pol/ was running the whole raid on them and got a good feel for what they were about. Truly the scum of the earth. It was pretty crazy to see that there are people who actually hold the view that all sexual intercourse is rape and believe that men should be castrated after harvesting their sperm.

Nothing came of it and I decided that watching anime and playing VNs was a lot more fun than wasting time arguing with feminazis.

I know at least that's completely false. It's instead Okabe asking Kurisu about Neidhardt, which goes against canon because Kurisu doesn't know who that is.

Of course it's false. All of that stuff came from a fake ANN link thread that claimed that Steins;Gates localization would be reddit-tier garbage. Nobody could check the link since cloudflare was down and ANN was inaccessible.

Yeah, they already tried. You remember all the that threads that got spammed on /q/ about deleting /pol/? That was an effort from SRS to clear out their opposition.

You can also see a lot of them posting on /lit/, /mu/, /co/, and /lgbt/ trying to sway the general opinion towards social justice. Most of 4chan is already wise to their game, but it never fails to grab a few people.

If it ever gets to be too bad then I'll just publish all the information I have on their admins and finish off that script to nuke their subreddit and be done with it.

Not to worry though, the good thing about anime is that it's unaffected by western feminism and other such bullshit.

But that's not it, Ruka does identify as male. Again, Ruka was gay, there were no gender identity issues.
>>
>>100795544
But Ruka wanting to be a girl was just him hiding from his problems, as well as the result of a shitty upbringing.

Ruka should accept that he he's a gay trap, he'd be much happier that way.

>>100795446
You know Ruka was dressing like a girl before they met.

In fact, that's HOW they met.

This shit pisses me off so much, I'm cool with transpeople and using their preferred pronouns, but hiding in "safe spaces" online and getting mad when people don't trigger warn you is counterproductive to trans rights entirely.

Imagine if MLK Jr. had resigned himself to just getting black people the right for segregated facilities to be "safe spaces".

Steins;Gate isn't about gender, but there is a transgender character.

This is why I started watching the show, and was the first thing I saw about it. Ruka, pic related, is a trans-girl, who dresses in a miko outfit at the shrine her family runs, and is legitimately trans. That cell from above is when she is trying to get Okabe to help her send a message back in time to change her into a girl.

ALRIGHT THAT'S ENOUGH!

So, yesterday an anon posted a translation of a letter Kurisu sent to Okabe in December 2010. Note that English wasn't this guy's native language.

Dear Okabe,
Hi, good work, are you doing fine?
I'm currently doing some small research and experiments, and am in a facility in the desert of Arizona. It's really hot, but the air is clear like shiny glass.

Last night, I went out for a breather, and everything my eyes could see was a sea of stars.
With a 360'° vision full of stars all for yourself, you feel kind of like falling into it, and also I thought to myself "...how lonely".

My chest became heavy and I closed my eyes. But there was just one thing I felt like then...
... well, I'm writing like a teenager in love (lol) \(^o^)/

I've been talking ever since we met in the city on that one day.
At the beginning, the "logical me" inside me judged this situation to be strange, fucked up, and wouldn't stop complaining about it. I talk without your dumb remarks somewhere in the room. There's also a me who understands

That's why I want to believe.
There's no-one who can prove it, though. I begin laughing without thinking about it.
"We are seperately doomed to be alone for all eternity, but at the same time we are always conencted, somewhere."

Even if we are living other lives on the outside, while wandering about another time...
Somewhere, we actually share the same things. We understand each other.
Certainly. Somewhere.

Did you know? Even Einstein, who denied believing into the existing church, imagined an "existance surpassing many many things" in his last year.

...well, let's end it here today.
This is a quite embarrassing Poem whoever you look at it. Thanks very much, me orz

Also, and this doesn't really matter, since I can take some vacation at year's end, I'll have no other choice but to come over.
I-It's not like I thought I'd want to meet you or anything!
I-I want to visit Mayuri. And all the other Labomem.
That's all there is to it. Nothing else. You are just an extra. E-x-tr-a!
Well then. Bye!

-> It's surely cold where you are so don't catch a cold!

From Kurisu Makise

Note As you may be able to tell thanks to the movie, Kurisu ended up being too busy to visit at that time.

Loads of nice touches to, like 'who's eye's are those eye's?' being plastered on the cover if you remove the sleeve. I'll see if I can take some decent pics with my shitty phone camera. No promises.

Come to think of it, do you think that there's a timeline where all the lab members are genderbent rather than just Ruka?
>Lesbian Ruka
>Fujoshi Landwhale Daru
>Moekas huge dick
>>
please /a/, tell me i did the right thing by grabbing the batch from [WhyNot]. To me, the translations were spot on, from daru's waifu's to Okabe catching Christina with "lurk moar"

It's over, funi killed my waifu. She's supposed to be a 2ch shitposter, not some kid from leddit
>>
>>100799389
WhyNot is the best. If I recall that scene used "All your base... are belong to us" to catch Kurisu out in the other subs.
>>
>>100799449
shes clearly a fujoshi newfag

like come the fuck on yo
>>
>>100798960
Don't forget fuka Kurisu.
>>
>>100799516

Kurisu actually is a fujoshi.
>>
>>100799678
Kurisu would be a genderbent bishie in that universe, getting tsun over the genki antics of female Okabe.

So he'll go full Braun?

HOLY Shit! Miistah Braun was a fucking bishounen...

>>100794622
Is the VN worth playing?
>>
>>100800127
Chaos;Head?
Of fucking course. It's the only way to get the actual story.
>>
>>100800127
Do you love your waifu?
>>
>>100800127
Chaos;Head? Yes.

The anime was terrible, like, DtB S2 or Tsukihime "this doesn't exist" terrible.
>>
>>100800341
Yea i know, i watched it, the OP was great tho
>>
>>100800341
Oh jesus, wasn't it something godawful along the lines of

>hard beta Takumi pretty much stumbles through the entire series being hard beta and useless
>final 2 episodes, Takumi goes man mode and does a bunch of crazy shit, thats ultimately only barely explained by DELUSIONS!!!!!

its been a looooooooooooooong time, but i think that was the gist.

>>100800521
Don't you mean the ED?
You'll always be Super Special to me /a/...
>>
>>100800613
The OP was great too, it was Kanako Itou!
>>
>>100800613
I always cringed when the ED started playing, i could only calm my nerves by hearing Kanako's sweet voice.
>>
>>100800857
>cringing at Super Special
Leave.
>>
>>100801052
I actually like the rest of the song, but the lyrics in the beginning are too cheesy for my taste.
>>
>>100801052
I was going to say something similar, but i'm in a Steins;Gate thread, so I'm in a good mood.
>>
>>100792901
That's not the VN, and who gives a shit about dubs? Fuck off.
>>
>>100801497
Are you retarded?
It's a joke post from years ago.
