Steins;Gate follows a self-proclaimed mad scientist named Rintar? Okabe who, along with his friends, manage to invent a microwave that can send text messages into the past, allowing him to travel between alternate worlds.
Rintar?, Itaru, Mayuri and Ruka are invited by Rumiho to come to Los Angeles, where they reunite with Kurisu. However, things don't go exactly as planned due to Rintar?'s wild delusions, leading them to be checked into a motel. Later that night, Kurisu talks to Rintar? about the dreams she's had of past world lines. After visiting the card tournament Rumiho had entered, Rintar? spots someone that looks like Suzuha and chases after her, having a conversation that hints at her being Suzuha's future mother. However, this leaves Rintar? stranded on the highway before being eventually found by Kurisu, who becomes stranded with him. Whilst waiting to be rescued, they talk about the world line where they confessed to each other and Rintar? once again makes his confession. Kurisu responds by telling him to close his eyes, just as she did before their first kiss in another world line.
In the summer of 2010, self-proclaimed mad scientist, Rintar? Okabe, goes to Doctor Nakabachi's seminar on time travel with his friend, Mayuri Shiina. While there, he meets a girl named Kurisu Makise who explicitly states that he had met her 15 minutes ago, despite having never seen her before. Later on, Rintar? hears a scream and sees Kurisu lying in a pool of blood. As he sends a text about it to another one of his research buddies, Itaru Hashida, Rintar? has a strange experience, finding the street he is on has suddenly become deserted and a strange satellite has crashed into the building he was just in. Later on, while fiddling with their strange remote-controlled microwave oven, which turns bananas into a gel-like substance, Itaru tells Rintar? that the seminar he supposedly attended was cancelled, much to his surprise. Rintar? later discovers that the text he sent to Itaru had been sent a week ago, just before encountering Kurisu, who is alive and well.
