Inconsistent D-mail Dates in Steins;Gate Season 1 and Steins;Gate 0

Pardon me for this somehow lengthy response. The episodes 1 and 7 of Steins;Gate tell a lot. In the first half of episode 1, Okabe received a video mail from the future. It was received on 28 Jul ...

Why didn't Suzuha mention the destruction of Nakabachi's paper in Episode 23 (β)?

Since episode 23β is a prequel, Suzuha knows nothing of the plan. So either she simply doesn't know to bring it up, or she doesn't even know that Nakabachi's paper is the cause of World War 3. Suzuha'...

What is the recommended viewing order of Steins;Gate?

I think like Monogatari series, this is also a bit opinion-based question. However, going with release order is fine. I would not recommend the chronological order for the first-timers. You will miss ...

Which is the first D-Mail?

(Answer edited to fit what was discussed in the comments as well) TL;DR: Whether or not the message Okabe sent is a D-Mail isn't something he has control over, at least not at the beginning of the ...

Does the pin in Steins;Gate pose any information paradox?

If Steins;Gate was set on a single timeline then you could describe this exchange as an information paradox. However, the series is known to use a multiple timelines model, which can allow for this ...

How come Mr. Braun doesn't remember Suzuha?

As you pointed out, yes it is because of the name change. But let's look at the timeline of events after Suzuha travels back to 1975 without changing the divergence ratio. 1975: Suzuha Amane (19 ...

How come WW3 doesn't happen in the Stein's Gate worldline?

It can be assumed Kurisu would never touch that theory again. Even if she did, it would never end up being used for evil. Otherwise, it would not be Steins Gate and Suzuha would time-travel from the ...

Could Okabe have saved Mayuri in the alpha world line?

It's not possible to save Mayuri in the alpha world line. Actually, if the police came and stopped the rounders - Mayuri would simply have a heart attack. In the VN, if there is no actual way to die - ...

What caused Ruka to change?

Does the phone attached on the microwave need network to send D-mails in the past in Steins Gate?

I think the D-mail actually alters the timeline into the one that has received the message. It doesn't send at that present time but it is sent in the past. The sending of the message actually ...

Why did Amane Suzuha have to plead to Okabe for saving Makise Kurisu instead of her doing it by herself?

There's no real answer to this other than speculation. It all actually can be done by Suzuha herself. But it was just that Okabe planned it all and he knows his past self can do it. Still there's the ...

Is it explained anything about what turned the cellphone-microphone into a time machine? (not how it is operated)

I think the original visual novel goes into more detail on this. Basically, time travel in Steins;Gate universe requires the use of a black hole. Sern is able to create them (though very tiny ones) ...
