[play this music]
I think I have rewatched the whole scene for the third time already, where Okarin reads her soul-crushingly depressing letter and I still get the same empty feeling in my chest.
The background music in this episode also contributed a lot to make the reuniting scene with Daru and the letter scene more emotional and leaves you with a deep impact.
Steins;Gate, I am impressed by your development. I have to admit, you started a bit dull and seemingly random at the first 1-4 episodes, but you were constantly developing your cast and story due to your well written dialogues and direction and finally absorbing me completely with your fascinating cast and your constant cliffhangers.
Steins;Gate is now officially one of my top five shows of the year 2011.
Still…. Suzuha… ;_;
(side note: screw you horriblesubs for f*cking up the encode for ep 16)
