theories on who the killer is?
I say it's the policeman who interviewed Satoru and his mother, using Kayo mother boyfriend as an assistant
while talking with his mother friend (the news man) the news man clearly states that Satoru own testimony was ignored.
combining this with the fact that it's someone from the government it's seems likely that running your own chase out would be the most effective way of a killer to move unnoticed uncaught.
although there is a slight problem, the government man is black haired while the one that Satoru mother might have encountered earlier had blonde hair.
the only character that has blonde hair that she might have encountered and remembered is Kayo mother boyfriend (probably during the police investigation in the days that followed).
all of which led me to the theory that when Satoru mother said that the "killer probably uses the same mo each time" she meant this:
the blonde haired guy finds a child he could kidnap or kill easily without being suspected (in our case Kayo) and while the police investigation is carried out the true killer uses it to commit more murders.
the writer constantly jokes around that idea, I think he's aware that the teacher might be the most obvious suspect but he gave us 4 clues that might rule him out of the suspect list
1) the killer has a governmental affiliation of some sorts
2) the killer has partners (the blonde guy) while the teacher seems kind of a loner
3) the teacher stopped smoking which seems like he's trying to improve his life, not start a life of murder
4) the most obvious one - the killer acted in different cities, while the teacher was teaching Satoru city
In anime the murderer was introduced as a guy who looked like he was in his 30s. The teacher was 28-29 when he
tried to kill Satoruand he killed his mother 15 years later. The manga did the job better if you ask me.
This shows hits too close to home, im not sure if i can survive this.
I don't understand where this NTR meme came from. He would have to have feelings for her first, which he doesn't. He's just trying to save his mom.
We Steins;Gate now
After episode 8's relatively happy conclusion, I think I'm going to put the series on hold until it finishes airing. All of the depressing cliffhangers are bad for my heart. I hope the series at least has a happy ending.
