I finished the anime and I still wonder what Kurisu said to Okabe in the first episode.

She pulls Okabe out of the conferance and says "Back there, you were going to tell me something, weren't you?" and Okabe responds "Back there?". Kurisu says "About fifteen minutes ago" and Okabe says "I don't have the slightest idea".

I guess it has (spoiler for the end of the anime)

something to do with time travel and world line travel in episode 23 and 24 but unfortunately I didn't watch those episodes that carefully.

However, what did Okabe intend to say to Kurisu, and where, and when?

    Probably that she got stabbed and he doesn't understand how she's alive. – Madara's Ghost Feb 21 '15 at 22:08

    She got stabbed and killed in episode 1, it's not much of a spoiler. – Madara's Ghost Feb 21 '15 at 22:10

    It was also mantoned, due to requests in this board, if you see a question for a show you have not watched, it is your own fault if there is a spoiler. – Denslat Feb 21 '15 at 22:20

Around 9 minutes into episode 24 (try watching from 08:30), Okabe from the future (episode 24 Okabe) bumped into Kurisu on the stairs in the radio hall building. He was going to say he would save her, but got interrupted by an announcement over the PA system and ran off.

In episode 1, Kurisu dragged Okabe (episode 1 Okabe) from the lecture, asking what he was going to tell her "about 15 minutes ago". He didn't know as he was episode 1 Okabe and the one she met was episode 24 Okabe.

If you don't understand how that works... Well, that's time travel for you.

  • 8:38 on me. I watched that part and, well, time travel = good and fun but hard to understand. Thanks for the answer. btw. The mangaka is extremely smart. Making something random in ep1 and explaining in the last ep, ep24... – Ave Feb 22 '15 at 17:22
  • @Avery what do you mean by "The mangaka" ? – Gagantous Sep 16 '17 at 17:31
