The part-time warrior from downstairs tells Okabe about the search for her missing father. Meanwhile, the aspiring mad scientist is troubled by a mysterious text message.

Okabe, desperate to prevent the tragedy he's already seen happen, summons the courage for a daring Time Leap. Can he save the life of his oldest and dearest companion?
Despite his many attempts, Okabe is unable to prevent the death of Mayuri, so he turns to Makise for help solving the riddle of time travel. Later, Suzuha's true identity is revealed
