Ep 2 – “Time Travel Paranoia” / “Jikan Chōyaku no Paranoia” (時間跳躍のパラノイア)

Okabe is surprised that Kurisu is alive, before being humiliated by her during a lecture concerning time travel. After getting some provisions from the androgynous Luka Urushibara, Okabe meets Suzuha Amane, who is hired by his landlord Yūgo “Mr. Braun” Tennōji as a part time assistant in his electronics shop below Okabe’s apartment. Later, Okabe investigates the supposedly altered events and learns that a man calling himself John Titor, who claimed in 2000 that he was a time traveler, has surfaced once more in 2010. However, all evidence of Titor’s 2000 visit have vanished and, with the exception of Okabe, no one remembers it. The next day, Okabe encounters a strange woman named Moeka Kiryū who asks for information on a retro PC model called IBM 5100, which Okabe gathers from Daru. Later, Okabe and Daru conduct an experiment where a banana placed in their microwave vanishes, only to end up reattached to the bunch it came from in a gelled state, at which point Kurisu shows up at the lab.
