Mayuri Shiina (椎名 まゆり, Shīna Mayuri), also called Mayushii ☆, is Rintarō Okabe's childhood friend and companion. She works part-time at a maid cafe called May Queen Nyan-nyan as a costume maid and occasionally makes cosplay outfits. She is usually the one who financially supports Rintarou's "research" when food is needed.
She is voiced by Kana Hanazawa in the Japanese version and and Ashly Burch in the English version, the latter of whom also voices Sasha Braus.
Mayuri is a short girl with short black hair and lightly blue iris. Her hair forms fringes that sweep from either side. Mayuri's eyebrows are noticeably thick.
Mayuri's outfit is simple and comfortable, consisting of a light blue one-piece dress and a hat of the same color. She also wears leggings underneath her clothing.
When she attends to her work in May Queen Nyan-nyan, she wears a blonde wig tied into a long ponytail.
"We should work towards world peace. Like giving everyone an Upa cushion" -Mayuri D-Mail wish.
Mayuri possesses an extremely childish and naïve attitude for her age. While this may have something to do with her inability to accept the death of her grandmother when she was young, Okabe states at one point that she's always been a little bit different, though he never goes into any detail beyond this. Mayuri has a great fondness for cute things like Upa cushions, and likes to give cute nicknames to familiar people, like Okabe (Okarin), even referring to herself as Mayushii.
Mayuri is one of the less intelligent members of the lab, often misunderstanding or misphrasing information she overhears from Rintarou or Kurisu, though at certain times her responses can be quite helpful. She is also the one with the "clearest eyes" because she knew from the start that no good can come from Okarin's time traveling experiments (said by Okabe Rintarou while he was crying next to Kurisu about his inability to help Mayuri escape death on Friday the 13th). Mayuri also does not question Daru's perverted comments and mannerisms, or is not in any way offended by them (though this is likely because she does not interpret them as such).
Despite being socially inept, she is also responsible for Rintarou's well-being, usually tending to his needs most of the time. She's also very attentive to details, often noticing things about people that others would miss. She figured out Suzuha Amane is Itaru Hashida's daughter through the details on the Time Machine and from Daru's daily habits, suggesting a degree of skills in observation and problem-solving.
"The whole time you and Chris-chan were hurting While Mayushii was making costumes like nothing was wrong I feel so stupid! I didn't know anything! I need to see Chris-chan!" -Mayuri to Okabe after knowing what Okabe and Kurisu have been through.
"But isn't doing this bad? Mayushii doesn't want you to do bad things" -Mayuri to Okabe.
When Mayuri's grandmother died, she spent all her time in front of her grave; this constantly worried Rintarou. Mayuri was in that state for several days, until a very rainy day when she dropped her umbrella and started raising her hand to the sky (which according to Rintarou, was like she was being taken by her grandma). Rintarou rushed to hug Mayuri in the moment's notice to prevent her from being taken to the heavens by her grandma. Realizing what he did, he became flustered. Remembering a mad scientist show that they had watched together, where the mad scientist takes a hostage, he played it off as if it was all a part of his act. Concealing the real reason, Rintarou imitated the scientist from the show and declared that Mayuri is his hostage, so that nobody can take her from him. Crying profusely, Mayuri smiled a little and, with a frail tone, replied that it cannot be helped.
Fate (from VN)
"Hum, I don't know who it was but Mayushii feels like she had a very important friend. And whenever I think about that important friend, my heart hurts, like hnng, you know? And sometimes, I hear a voice. That voice tells me to 'find happiness'. I wonder if that person is the reason of why Mayushii is with Okarin now If I ever meet this person again, I want to tell them thanks." -Mayuri talking about Kurisu in her ending.
Okabe must choose between saving Mayuri or Kurisu. Realizing that he harbors romantic feelings for Kurisu, Okabe and Kurisu decide to return to the Beta world line in which Kurisu's murder continues as planned, but Mayuri noticed that something strange was going on between Kurisu and Okabe so she decided to ask Okabe. After knowing about Okabe's journey to save her, about all people's happiness he sacrificed, and about Okabe's decisions, Mayuri cries and blame herself, running to see Kurisu. When Mayuri encountered her, Kurisu was packing her things to go back to America. She runs and hugs her, saying she doesn't want Kurisu to disappear, only to hear that this was Kurisu's decision from the beginning and that she wants Mayuri to be happy; saying that Okabe loves her, she parts. After hacking into SERN's database with the IBN computer, 1% divergence is achieved. Okabe vows to remember his memories of Kurisu, and spends his time with Mayuri as lovers. On a date with Mayuri, she says she had a very important friend that she doesn't remember who and that sometimes, she hears a voice, a voice that tells her to 'find happiness'. Mayuri holds Okabe's hand (Doing 'Stardust Handshake') and wondering if that important friend is the reason she is with Okabe right now, saying she wants to say thanks.
Death(s) - Spoilers
Before achieving 1% divergence, Mayuri dies in multiple ways during Rintarou's various attempts to save her, due to the events of the world lines in this same attractor field always converges into the event of her demise, though with different results each time:
•Shot in the head by Moeka Kiryū
•Hit by a metro train
•Hit by the Rounders' car
•Hit by a policeman's stray bullet
•Spontaneous cardiac arrest
•Gel-ified (VN, in the anime appears as a flashing image when Okabe described to repeat his leaping to save Mayuri)
•Shot by a Rounder whilst in a taxi with Okabe (Anime) / Stabbed by a Rounder whilst in a taxi with Okabe (Visual Novel)
•Gunned down by the Rounders
"Finally Mayushii was useful to Okarin." -Mayuri after protecting Okabe from being hit by a Rounder's car.
☆Mayuri's voice was used as a user guide for the Phone Microwave. According to Rintarou, it made the Microwave sound silly.
☆She was the first person to discover the Microwave's "irregular" abilities when she accidentally froze her chicken while trying to thaw it. She also gave the gel-i-fied bananas the name "gel-nana".
☆So far, the only ending of the visual novel in which Mayuri's death is definite is Ruka's ending, as she survived in Faris's ending, Kurisu's ending (same thing applies to the True end), her own ending and Suzuha's ending (implied to have been saved through the combined efforts of Rintarou and Suzuha).
☆Also, Mayuri dies of natural causes if Ruka's ending was achieved. This is the one of two instances in the plot where the cause of Mayuri's death was not an accident/murder, the other being when she goes to ComiMa on the 16th after Ruka's mail is reversed.
☆Mayuri, like all other characters, has blurry memories of what happened to her in the other world lines, though unlike them she only thinks of the memories as "bad dreams".
☆According to Okabe, his first kiss was with Mayuri in elementary school, though they were "just messing around".
☆Lab Member Second to the founder, already joined at the start of the main story.
☆She joined because she saw that Okabe was lonely and she wanted to be with him (under the gimmick of being his hostage).
☆Mayuri is so innocent and honest, Kurisu once thought that Mayuri was kidnapped by Okabe.
"Just look, we've made so many friends There's Daru-kun, Chris-chan, Luka-chan, Suzu-san, Moeka-san, Feris-chan, Braun-san, Nae-chan and more! In the spring you seemed so lonely But now you're fine. You don't need Mayushii to be your hostage anymore."

February 1st, (Aquarius)
17 (Steins;Gate 0)
During the year in the Beta Attractor Field, Mayuri becomes Kagari Shiina's adoptive mother.
Mayuri is a short girl with short black hair where it forms fringes that sweep from either side, light-blue eyes and Mayuri's eyebrows are noticeably thick.
Mayuri's outfit is simple and comfortable, consisting of a light blue one-piece dress and a hat of the same color. She also wears black leggings underneath her clothing.
When she attends to her work at May Queen Nyan-nyan, she wears a blonde wig tied into a long ponytail.
Mayuri possesses an extremely childish and naïve attitude for her age. While this may have something to do with her inability to accept the death of her grandmother when she was young, Okabe states at one point that she's always been a little bit different, though he never goes into any detail beyond this. Mayuri has a great fondness for cute things like Upa cushions, and likes to give cute nicknames to familiar people, like Okarin for Okabe, being a portmanteau of his last and first names Okabe Rintaro, even referring to herself as Mayushii, being a portmanteau of Mayuri Shiina.
Though appearing as one of the less intelligent members of the lab, according to Okabe, Mayuri is very perceptive, often being surprisingly quick to catch things no one else notices, and being good at understanding how others feel. Mayuri also does not question Daru's perverted comments and mannerisms, or is not in any way offended by them.
Despite being socially inept, she is also responsible for Rintaro's well-being, usually tending to his needs most of the time.
As a child, Mayuri was close friends with Rintaro Okabe and they could often be seen together. However, after the death of her grandmother when Mayuri was 11, she entered a state of PTSD that caused her to be unable to talk to others, and could be seen in front of her grandmother's grave in the cemetery most of the time.
Out of fear that something could happen to her, Rintaro tried to call out to her while when she was in the cemetery. One day, as Mayuri raised her hand towards the sky after it stopped raining, Rintaro's fear reached its limit, and he rushed to hug her, proclaiming to be a "mad scientist" and that Mayuri was his "hostage", and that, therefore, she was not allowed to go away. Fortunately, his new persona he created helped her overcome her immense grief and went back to normal.
Shortly after Rintaro creates the Future Gadget Lab in , Mayuri was the first one to join it, as she felt that Rintaro was lonely all by himself and wanted to be with him. For a few months, they both were the only ones to attend the lab, where they spent their time doing nothing of particular relevance. Some months later, Mayuri accidentally discovered the PhoneWave's hidden function, resulting in a bunch of gelified bananas, which she called "gelnanas".
On July 28, , Mayuri attended alongside Rintaro Dr. Nakabachi's time machine seminar. Shortly before the seminar, she managed to win a rare metal Upa out of a slot machine, but lost it a few moments later. After Okabe changes the timeline with his mail to Daru, she accompanies him in RadiKan, to see the crashed satellite.
Mayuri decides to visit Luka, her friend from school, and try to convince him to do cosplay with an outfit she made, since Mayuri likes more to make outfits than to use them. As expected by her, Luka is embarrassed to do something like this, since it's a female outfit. Mayuri says the popular phrases around @chan: "Someone this cute can't possibly be a girl!" and "Cuteness is justice!", she also admires the relationship of master and disciple that Okabe and Luka have, getting excited although she says she's not a fujoshi.
She welcomes Okabe when he appears at May Queen Nyan-Nyan, the place where she and Faris work, and says that "Okarin" and welcome ("Okaeri" in japanese) go well together. She's the second most popular maid there due to her habit of guiding the clients by their hand. She guides Okabe to Daru's table and returns to work.
Mayuri appears later in the lab while Okabe and the others were doing experiments, and introduces herself to Kurisu when she joins the lab, saying she's glad that she's not the only female labmem now. However, she got angry that they were using the food she bought to eat later for experiments, and attempted to stop them by opening the PhoneWave while it was being used. This caused an electrical discharge to occur and she's grabbed by Okabe, who is afraid to lose her. They later find out that the message they sent was indeed sent to the past, but Mayuri find those things too complicated for her to understand and she leaves shortly after the discharge ocurred, still angry about the wasted food.
She sents a mail to Okabe about the money she uses to buy food, and he has the option to thank and promise her to buy anything she wants, which causes her to get really excited. She later finds out that Okabe and Daru were both awake for two nights, and decided to buy them some food, including Okabe's favorite udon.
After Okabe decides to hack SERN's database, Mayuri constantly complains that he is doing something wrong and decides against joining him in those type of acts.
As Okabe decides to leave the lab, Mayuri joins him asking them to have lunch. As they walk together Mayuri is suddenly nowhere to be seen, which scares Okabe. She stopped and extended her hand to the sky, her explanation is that she sometimes feels that she can reach the stars.
She calls Okabe while at work to inform him of something he wants to know. They eat on her break, and Mayuri says that she asked Faris about the IBN and found out that she knows something about it.
After her work she returns the lab with Okabe and the others, but leaves shortly after.
As the Future Gadget Lab's experiments with the PhoneWave and the D-Mails proceed, Mayuri grows exponentially worried that they may be doing something wrong, but never attempts to stop Rintaro. As the number of members of the lab increases, and, in particular, due to the appearance of Kurisu Makise, Mayuri starts to think that Rintaro does not need her anymore, and starts worrying about her future.
In August 13, , as the Future Gadget Lab is celebrating the completion of the Time Leap Machine, Mayuri is killed by Moeka Kiryu during the Rounder raid to the lab. This event leads Rintaro to travel back to the past to try and save her.
As Rintaro's time leaps continue, he is witness to Mayuri's death a multitude of times in a variety of ways, due to Attractor Field convergence. Despite his best efforts to reach the Beta Attractor Field, he unknowingly grows distant of Mayuri, which she notices. This, alongside Mayuri's recent dreams of her own deaths, makes her belief herself to be a burden to Rintaro.
Once Rintaro finally reaches the Beta Attractor Field after sacrificing the life of Kurisu, Mayuri is the one to embrace him as his mad scientist façade crumbles.
On August 21, , as Rintaro goes back to the past alongside Suzuha Amane to save Kurisu's life, Mayuri stays behind with Itaru Hashida. After Rintaro returns, wanting to give up after having accidentally killed Kurisu himself, Mayuri is the one to return him to his senses.
Okabe must choose between saving Mayuri or Kurisu. Realizing that he harbors romantic feelings for Mayuri, Okabe and Kurisu decide to return to the Beta world line in which Kurisu's murder continues as planned, but Mayuri noticed that something strange was going on between Kurisu and Okabe so she decided to ask Okabe. After knowing about Okabe's journey to save her, about all people's happiness he sacrificed, and about Okabe's decisions, Mayuri cries and blamed herself, running to see Kurisu. When Mayuri encountered her, Kurisu was packing her things to go back to America. She runs and hugs her, saying she doesn't want Kurisu to disappear, only to hear that this was Kurisu's decision from the beginning and that she wants Mayuri to be happy; saying that Okabe loves her, she parts. After hacking into SERN's database with the IBN computer, 1% divergence is achieved. Okabe vows to remember his memories of Kurisu,and spends his time with Mayuri as lovers. On a date with Mayuri, she says she had a very important friend that she doesn't remember who and that sometimes, she hears a voice, a voice that tells her to 'find happiness'. Mayuri holds Okabe's hand (Doing 'Stardust Handshake') and wondering if that important friend is the reason she is with Okabe right now, saying she wants to say thanks.
Isolated Jamais Vu
After attempting to find a way to save Mayuri without sacrificing the life of Yukitaka Akiha, Rintaro ends up in an unknown worldline. After exploring Akihabara and trying to contact his friends, Rintaro finds out that only Faris remembers him.
Mayuri, who in this worldline still works at May Queen, does not have any recollection of Rintaro. However, since the first D-Mail has never been sent, her death has been avoided. Rintaro, although depressed over having lost his friends, recognizes that as a necessary exchange for Mayuri's life and accepts it.
Link of Corruption and Rebirth
As Rintaro refuses to sacrifice Luka Urushibara's feelings and going back to the worldline where she was born as a man, they both are left with no other option but accept Mayuri's inevitable death.
Several days after her funeral, Luka uses the Time-Leap Machine to go back to the day Mayuri died, with the intention of making her wish of seeing her wearing a cosplay a reality.
Recursive Mother Goose
After Kagari Shiina successfully recovers her memories after almost being hit by a truck while searching for the origin of a song she remembered, Mayuri discovers that she is her daughter from the future, and they proceed to live the several following months happily together.
However, as the time limit for the Time Machine's fuel approaches, Mayuri decides to go back to the past herself to convince Rintaro Okabe to save Kurisu Makise. Kagari, not wanting to be separated from her mother, opposes, but as she discovers Mayuri's reasoning to do so, decides to go herself alongside Suzuha Amane. Their fate after going back to the past, however, is unknown.
After being brain-washed by Alexis Leskinen and capturing Rintaro Okabe against her will, Maho Hiyajo roams Akihabara, with no clear goal in mind. She then finds Mayuri Shiina, who is looking for Rintaro, and, out of her own frustration and desperation, tells her the truth about the death of Kurisu Makise and her own life. Mayuri then runs away.
As Rintaro wakes up after being rescued, he is informed by Itaru Hashida that both Mayuri and Suzuha Amane have disappeared, and that the Time Machine has been destroyed.
Due to Attractor Field convergence, Mayuri is destined to die on August of in the Alpha Attractor Field. Even though Rintaro Okabe time leaps a multitude of times to avoid her death, not even his best efforts can trick fate. These are some of the ways Mayuri dies, as seen in the visual novel and the anime adaptation:
- Shot in the head.
- Hit by a car.
- Run over by a metro train.
- Hit by a policeman's bullet.
- Spontaneous cardiac arrest.
- Jellified after being sent to the past with SERN's incomplete time machine.
- Shot by a Rounder whilst in a taxi with Rintaro. (Anime)
- Stabbed by a Rounder whilst in a taxi with Rintaro. (Visual Novel)
In world lines where Okabe manages to avoid any and other means of death, as well as worldlines where she can't be killed by rounders because they are uninvolved, Mayuri only dies of heart attacks like the time when Kurisu accompanies her to ComiMa.
- "But isn't doing this bad? Mayushii doesn't want you to do bad things" - Mayuri to Rintaro Okabe.
- "We should work towards world peace. Like giving everyone an Upa cushion" - Mayuri D-Mail wish.
- "Just look, we've made so many friends There's Daru-kun, Chris-chan, Luka-chan, Suzu-san, Moeka-san, Feris-chan, Braun-san, Nae-chan and more! In the spring you seemed so lonely But now you're fine. You don't need Mayushii to be your hostage anymore."
- "Finally Mayushii was useful to Okarin." - Mayuri after protecting Okabe from being hit by a Rounder's car.
- "The whole time you and Chris-chan were hurting While Mayushii was making costumes like nothing was wrong I feel so stupid! I didn't know anything! I need to see Chris-chan!" - Mayuri to Okabe after knowing what Okabe and Kurisu Makise have been through.
- "Hum, I don't know who it was but Mayushii feels like she had a very important friend. And whenever I think about that important friend, my heart hurts, like hnng, you know? And sometimes, I hear a voice. That voice tells me to 'find happiness'. I wonder if that person is the reason of why Mayushii is with Okarin now If I ever meet this person again, I want to tell them thanks." - Mayuri talking about Kurisu in her ending.
- "Tutturu~!" - Mayuri greeting someone. Also her catchphrase.
- Mayuri's surname Shiina means "oak, mallet" (椎) (shii) and "name, noted, distinguished, reputation" (名) (na).
- Mayuri's voice was used as a user guide for the Phone Microwave. According to Rintaro Okabe, it made the Microwave sound silly.
- According to Okabe, his first kiss was with Mayuri in elementary school, although they were "just messing around".

Steins;Gate's gameplay requires little interaction from the player as most of the duration of the game is spent reading the text that appears on the screen, which represents either the dialogue between the various characters or the thoughts of the protagonist. Like many other visual novels, there are specific points in Steins;Gate where the user is given a choice to affect the direction of the game.
For these decision points, Steins;Gate presents the user with the "phone trigger" (フォーントリガー, fōn torigā) system. When the player receives a phone call, the player can choose to answer or ignore the call. Incoming text messages have specific words underlined and highlighted in blue, much like a hyperlink on a browser, which the player can select to reply to the text message. Most phone calls or text messages do not require a response, though there are certain points in the game where the player is required to take action. Depending on the player's choices of how to respond to these phone calls and text messages, the plot will progress in a specific direction.
Setting and themes
Steins;Gate is set in the summer of , approximately one year after the events that took place in Chaos;Head, in Akihabara. Physical locales of Akihabara like the Radio Kaikan building can be spotted in the game. According to Chiyomaru Shikura, who headed the planning of Steins;Gate, Akihabara was chosen because it is an easy place for acquiring hardware parts, which makes it the ideal place for people interested in inventing and tinkering with things. The notion of time and time traveling are the main themes of the game. The concept of cause and effect is featured prominently in the game as the protagonist travels back in time numerous times to perform different actions in an attempt to alter what has happened in the future.Steins;Gate also features hard science fiction elements.
- Okabe Rintaro (岡部 倫太郎, Okabe Rintarō)
- The player assumes the role of Okabe Rintaro, the protagonist of Steins;Gate. Okabe is an eccentric individual, a self-proclaimed mad scientist who often goes by the pseudonymHououin Kyouma (鳳凰院 凶真, Hououin Kyōma). Mayuri and Daru call him "Okarin" (オカリン), a portmanteau of his surname and given name. He is the founder of what he calls the "Future Gadget Laboratory" (未来ガジェット研究所, Mirai Gajetto Kenkyūjo) in Akihabara, where he spends most of his time and has dubbed himself Lab Member No. (as he is the first person to join). Okabe gives off the appearance of being delusional and paranoid, frequently referring to the "Organization" that is after him, talking to himself on his phone, and engaging in fits of maniacal laughter. He is frequently mocked for this behavior, mostly by Kurisu and Daru, and referred to as a chunibyou. Most of the time he takes on a fairly arrogant personality. He is usually seen wearing a lab coat. As he experiments with time travel, he learns that he is the only one who possesses the ability to determine changes between different timelines, which he dubs "Reading Steiner". He is 18 years old and a first-year student at Tokyo Denki University.
- He is actually a kind-hearted person who always helps others that are in trouble. He acted strangely by talking to himself on his phone and saying all those strange things like the "Organization" just to make his childhood friend, Shiina Mayuri happy. Shiina Mayuri was in great sadness when her grandmother passed away. Moreover, he protected Urushibara Luka from bullies at the first time he met Luka and as a result, Luka was grateful to Okabe and treated Okabe as his role model.
- Makise Kurisu (牧瀬 紅莉栖)
- Makise Kurisu is the main heroine of the game and Lab Member No. She is an year-old neuroscience researcher at an American university who can speak and read English well. Having had her research published in the academic journal Science at this age, Makise is extremely talented. She had skipped a grade in the American school system. Okabe simply tends to call her assistant (助手, joshu) or one of the several nicknames he comes up with, such as "Christina" (クリスティーナ, Kurisutīna), "the Zombie", and "Celeb Sev", which bugs her to varying degrees. She is something of a mild tsundere, although she will object to it whenever someone (usually Daru) calls her that. She does not get along with her father and has not spoken to him in many years. She posts on @chan (the game's in-universe version of 2channel) under the name "KuriGohan and Kamehameha"; the alias also makes a cameo on Kaito Yashio's PokeCom tablet in episode 9 of Robotics;Notes.
- Shiina Mayuri (椎名 まゆり)
- Shiina Mayuri is a long-time childhood best friend of Rintaro and is a bit of an airhead, as well as Lab Member No. Shiina enjoys creating cosplay costumes and has a part-time job at a maid café called "Mayqueen Nyannyan". She often calls herself Mayushii (まゆしぃ), a portmanteau of her given name and surname, which is also what Daru calls her. She has a distinctive sing-song way of speaking, and she typically sings tutturū (トゥットゥルー) when she arrives or introduces herself. Several years prior she lost her grandmother under unknown circumstances, and to prevent her from succumbing to grief, Okabe declared her his "hostage", his entire eccentric persona being for her sake. She is 16 years old and she is a second-year at a private university preparatory school.
- Hashida "Daru" Itaru (橋田 至, Hashida Itaru)
- Hashida Itaru is an experienced hacker who has known Okabe since high school and is Lab Member No. He is very skilled in computer programming and with old and new computer hardware. He is also well-versed in things on otaku culture. Okabe and Shiina refer to him by the nickname "Daru" (ダル), a portmanteau of his given name and surname. Okabe sometimes also calls him Super Hacka (スーパーハカー, Sūpā Hakā) (Hack in the English dub), mispronouncing the word "hacker" (ハッカー, hakkā) to his chagrin. He is attracted to Faris and frequently sexually harasses her. Daru is often annoyed with Okabe's frequent delusional behavior. He is 19 years old and, like Okabe, is a first-year student at Tokyo Denki University. He appears in Robotics;Notes as DaSH, and as a main character in its sequel, Robotics;Notes DaSH.
- Kiryu Moeka (桐生 萌郁)
- Kiryu Moeka is a tall girl who Okabe bumps into in Akihabara and is on a search for the IBN personal computer, and is Lab Member No. Kiryu is extremely protective of her mobile phone and becomes agitated if someone tries to take it from her hands. She is very shy and prefers to talk to someone by sending them a text message instead of speaking, even if they are right in front of her. Okabe calls her Shining Finger (閃光の指圧師（シャイニング・フィンガー）, Shainingu Fingā). She is 20 years old.
- Urushibara Luka (漆原 るか, Urushibara Ruka)[b]
- Urushibara Luka is a friend of Okabe and Lab Member No. His appearance is that of a female and he acts in a feminine way due to his upbringing, wearing girl's clothing within and outside his father's temple. He is also a close friend and classmate of Shiina, who often asks him to try on her cosplay costumes, but as he is quite shy, he generally refuses.

True End route
The following summary is based upon the True End route.
Steins;Gate takes place in the Akihabara district of Tokyo. On July 28, , Okabe Rintaro and his friend Shiina Mayuri head towards the Radio Kaikan building for a conference, where Rintaro finds a girl named Makise Kurisu lying in a pool of blood. As Rintaro sends a text message about the incident to his friend, Itaru "Daru" Hashida, he experiences a strange phenomenon and the people around him disappear, with no one else noticing anything had changed. After later running into Kurisu, who is strangely alive and well, and discovering the message he had sent to Itaru had arrived a week before he sent it, Rintaro soon deduces that the 'Mobile Microwave' he and his friends had been developing is, in fact, a time machine capable of sending text messages to the past. He and his friends soon learn that SERN, an organization that has been researching time travel for some time, has actually succeeded in sending humans into the past although they seem to have all resulted in the test subjects' deaths. Rintaro begins experimenting with "D-Mails" (Dメール, D mēru, short for DeLorean mail), which begin to cause major differences in the timeline. Kurisu also manages to create a device to send a person's memories through the microwave, allowing that person to effectively leap into the past.
However, SERN learns of the time machine and sends a group led by Moeka to retrieve it, killing Mayuri in the process. Using Kurisu's time leap machine, Rintaro travels back in time numerous times to try to save Mayuri, but to no avail. As Rintaro reaches wit's end, he is approached by Amane Suzuha, a girl from a future ruled by SERN due to their possession of a time machine, who tells him that he needs to return to a Beta worldline in which Mayuri won't die. By undoing the effects of the D-Mails that caused shifts in the timeline, Rintaro regains possession of an IBN PC that they lost earlier, allowing them to crack into SERN's systems and delete the evidence of Rintaro's original D-Mail. However, Rintaro realizes that by doing so, he would have to return to a world line in which Kurisu is dead. After realizing their feelings for each other, Kurisu tells Rintaro to save Mayuri. Reluctantly, Rintaro agrees and deletes the evidence of his D-Mail from SERN's database, returning him to the Beta world line.
Sometime later, Suzuha appears before Rintaro, having arrived in a time machine from the future. She tells Rintaro that the only way to prevent World War III in the future is to prevent Kurisu's death at the hands of her father, Dr. Nakabachi, who stole her time travel theory to publish it under his own name. However, this operation ends in a disaster as Rintaro ends up killing Kurisu himself by mistake. After this failure, Rintaro receives a message from his future self, telling him that the way to save Kurisu without altering the events that led to him developing a time machine is to fool his past self into believing Kurisu had been killed and thus achieving the final divergence value of %, which he dubs the 'Steins Gate'. Returning to the past again, Rintaro puts his own life in danger in order to save Kurisu's life, prevent Nakabachi from successfully escaping with the time travel theory, and fool his past self, setting him on his journey through time. Returning to the Steins Gate world line, safe from the threat of a third world war, Rintaro and Kurisu manage to reunite by chance (or by fate) in the streets of Akihabara.
The player's choices throughout the game may result in alternate endings.
- In the Amane Suzuha Ending, Okabe decides to not send the D-Mail that would prevent him from pursuing Suzuha. To prevent Mayuri's death, he re-lives the final two days before her murder through constant time-leaping. After countless leaps, Okabe loses all emotion and personality due to re-living the same two days for all eternity. Eventually, Suzuha notices Okabe's behavior. She tells him that he will slowly "die" on the inside, and the world's set divergence will continue as planned. Both of them decide to travel to the past together and vow to stop SERN's dystopian future, despite the possibility of both losing their memories on arrival.
- In the Faris NyanNyan Ending, Okabe decides to not send the D-Mail that results in the death of Faris's father to try to stop the loss of the IBN computer. He instead sends a different D-Mail in an attempt to convince Faris's father to not part with the IBN computer. Beyond 1% divergence is achieved, but the divergence meter gives a strange output and none of Okabe's friends have any memories of him. In this worldline, Okabe and Faris are a couple and live together, participating in RaiNet Access Battlers card game tournaments. Although disappointed that none of his friends remember him, Okabe is still satisfied that he was able to prevent Mayuri's death. He decides to build a new life with Faris at his side.
- In the Urushibara Luka Ending, Okabe decides to not send the D-Mail that reverts Luka to a guy. He fully accepts Mayuri's expected death and makes no more attempts to save her and they spend the last two days together before she dies of a heart attack. Okabe and Luka decide to spend the rest of their lives together, both of them sharing a pang of guilt and sadness that only they would understand. In a post-credit scene they are revealed to now have a child together.
- In the Shiina Mayuri Ending, Okabe must choose between saving Mayuri or Kurisu. Realizing that he harbors romantic feelings for Mayuri, Okabe and Kurisu decide to return to the Beta worldline in which Kurisu's murder continues as planned. After hacking into SERN's database with the IBN computer, a 1% divergence is achieved. Okabe vows to remember his memories of Kurisu and spends his time with Mayuri as lovers.
- The Makise Kurisu Ending follows a similar route to the True End. To achieve this ending, one must have had several conversations with Kurisu throughout the game. Doing so allows Okabe and Kurisu to realize their inner feelings for each other. Unlike the True End, Kurisu's death is not prevented after the credits.
Steins;Gate is the second collaborative work between 5pb. and Nitroplus after Chaos;Head. The game was created with the concept of "99% science (reality) and 1% fantasy" in mind. The planning for Steins;Gate was headed by Chiyomaru Shikura of 5pb. The characters were designed by Ryohei Fuke, also known as 'Huke' (known as one of the illustrators of Metal Gear series, and the creator of Black Rock Shooter franchise) whereas the gadgets were designed by [email protected] Naotaka Hayashi of 5pb. wrote the scenario with assistance from Vio Shimokura of Nitroplus. Tatsuya Matsuhara from 5pb. was the producer and Tosō Pehara from Nitroplus was the art director. The music was composed by Takeshi Abo of 5pb. and Toshimichi Isoe of Zizz Studio. Shikura, Hayashi, Matsuhara, Abo, and Isoe had all previously worked on Chaos;Head. The title "Steins;Gate" had no specific meaning, being coined from the German word "Stein" meaning stone, and tying in with famous physicist Albert Einstein.
Steins;Gate was inspired by earlier visual novels written by Hiroyuki Kanno. These include Eve Burst Error (), and most notably the time-travel adventure YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World ().
Matsuhara, who came up with the concept of the phone trigger system, stated that he initially wanted to incorporate the player's own mobile phone into the system. However, the idea was abandoned due to concerns that it might clash with Japan's privacy laws. When asked if the phone trigger system would be used in a possible sequel to the game, Hayashi stated that he hoped this would not be the case and recalled saying "who thought of this system!" while writing the contents of the text messages. While Shikura did not directly contribute to the script itself, Hayashi stated that Shikura helped with the overall plot and provided assistance with the second half of the story. In particular, Shikura helped a lot with the time-traveling aspects of the story. Hayashi stated that while he did not want the script to repeat the same text over and over again, it was ultimately unavoidable due to the player having to travel back in time so he tried to emphasize the overall tempo of the plot's development and how the plot unfolded. With regards to the theme of time traveling, Hayashi had felt that it seemed like an overdone topic and expressed concern over it when he first heard the idea from Shikura.
Prior to the game's announcement, a teaser site was featured on 5pb.'s website that simply referred to the game as Project S;G and stating that it was going to be a collaboration between 5pb. and Nitroplus. Nitroplus's website had also hinted at this on its 10th anniversary website. Matsuhara, who was also the producer for Chaos;Head, had previously stated that the game would be centred on Akihabara and that the project with Nitroplus would be the second part in a series around the theme "Science Novels (科学ノベル, Kagaku Noberu)". On June 12, , the countdown expired and the name Steins;Gate was revealed.
Kana Hanazawa stated that she was happy to have been selected to be in Steins;Gate as she felt that it was not common to be able to play a part in a serious game. She also thought that the game gives the player more of a thrilling sensation rather than a frightening one and it entices the player to continue reading.

Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Darling was released on June 6, , and is similar to Chaos;Head Love Chu Chu! in terms of style.

Steins;Gate: Hen'i Kuukan no Octet is a non-canon extension of the True End of the original game.

|~ Mayuri's catchphrase|
Mayuri Shiina is the tritagonist of the visual novel and anime series Steins;Gate, and its sequel Steins;Gate 0. She is the childhood friend ofRintarou Okabe and the second lab member to join the Future Gadget Laboratory. She is a kind-hearted innocent girl who doesn't understand much about the pursuits of the lab on time travel yet has her own moments of unusual perceptiveness. Her nickname is Mayushii and works part-time at Faris Nyannyan's maid cafe, the Maid Queen NyanNyan as Mayushii NyanNyan. She likes to knit cosplay outfits which she usually forces Ruka Urushibara to wear. The series revolves on Okabe trying to save Mayuri from death due to the consequences of the D-mail.
She is voiced by Kana Hanazawa in the Japanese version and and Ashly Burch in the English version. In the English version of the second half of Steins;Gate 0, she is voiced by Megan Shipman.
Mayuri is a short girl with short black hair and gray pupils. Her hair forms fringes that sweep from either side. Mayuri's eyebrows are noticeably thick.
Mayuri's outfit is simple and comfortable, consisting of a light blue one-piece dress and a hat of the same color. She also wears leggings underneath her clothing.
When she attends to her work in May Queen Nyan-nyan, she wears a blonde wig tied into a long ponytail.
Mayuri possesses an extremely childish and naïve attitude for her age. While this may have something to do with her inability to accept the death of her grandmother when she was young, Okabe states at one point that she's always been a little bit different, though he never goes into any detail beyond this. Despite this, Kurisu considers her to be 'normal', at least in comparison to Okabe. Mayuri has a great fondness for cute things like Upa cushions, and likes to give cute nicknames to familiar people, like Okabe (Okarin), even referring to herself as Mayushii.
Mayuru is one of the less intelligent members of the lab, often misunderstanding or misphrasing information she overhears from Okabe or Kurisu, though at certain times her responses can be quite helpful. She is also the one with the "clearest eyes" because she knew from the start that no good can come from Okarin's time traveling experiments (said by Okabe Rintarou while he was crying next to Kurisu about his inability to help Mayuri escape death on Friday the 13th). Mayuri also does not question Daru's perverted comments and mannerisms, or is not in any way offended by them (though this is likely because she does not interpret them as such.
Despite being socially inept, she is also responsible for Rintarou's well-being, usually tending to his needs most of the time. She's also very attentive to details, often noticing things about people that others would miss. She figured out Suzuha Amane is Itaru Hashida's daughter through the details on the Time Machine and from Daru's daily habits, suggesting a degree of skills in observation and problem-solving.
Okay, Oksanochka!" I replied, thinking that with her panties down she looks sexier than without them at all, get in now in the bath. Kneel down and turn your ass to me. I turned off the tap, removed the mirror hanging on the hook from the wall, and hung up the enema instead.
