There is actually a very sadistic chapter about it.
The first time Subaru sees Rem in coma, he kills himself immediately. He resurrects pretty much right before that point, and this is when he realizes he cannot go back in time to save Rem anymore.
Then later on during arc 4, Subaru is shown alternate timeline. He sees the world where he committed suicide above, and although his consciousness reverted to the save point, Emilia of that continuity comes into the room and finds his body. She cries and despairs screaming WHY WHY would you do this to me.

The chapter basically raised the horrible possibility that the timelines he died may have continued on their own afterwards, leaving everyone miserable.

The author is very good at making us feel like shit.

It's a self-loathing terrible taste joke.

Emilia has been discriminated because she's a half-elf that looks exactly like Satella. That's why Puck said her sense of humor is terrible when she gave that name to Subaru.

Imagine alternate world elf coming to our world, befriending a black guy and asks his name and he says "call me Nigga".

Then imagine the said person in a restarted timeline suddenly being called that by an elf he's never met.

It seems to only get worse as the arcs go, but at least Subaru is getting quite used to the misery by arc 5.

Then the author starts to torment characters other than Subaru.

Elves are pretty rare, and her clan of elves are in the mountain frozen in ice from Emilia's own spell gone out of control.

But it's the fact that she's a half-elf that makes her the target of discrimination. Not to mention a half-elf with a silver hair.

Satella the Witch was a half-elf with the silver hair. (and to those who are immortal or long living and remember Satella, even worse as Emilia even has the same face as her)

How do you make amends for someone killing you in cold blood? Think about it like this, take any good deed she does and add 'and then she kills you in cold blood' afterward, just to see how they measure up against eachother.

>saves your life
>and then kills you

>saves the lives of your immediate and extended family
>and then kills you

>saves the entire world

she doesn't trust him, which is a common motif in this series, the MC is overly trusting of what other people tell him.

She's the 42nd in line to the throne and she didn't want him to who she really was, because if she got help or it leaked that she lost that emblem it would've jeopardized her credibility to become the heir.

The dragon appointed the first king of the kingdom, and when the linage is broken, the dragon rites decides the next king.

The entire royal line abruptly came to an end after series of mysterious deaths.
So the kingdom secretly went to seek out those who were chosen by the dragon crest - the crest stolen in the first arc.
Emilia is one of them, and we will find out in few episodes that the loli thief girl is another.


There are five candidates, all with their own faction and characters, who Subaru will befriend or ally up with from time to time.

What I don't understand is how he easily dies like a bitch to one thug and then holds his own at least for a little bit against Elsa and Rem later on.

She's a vampire who's more than a few screws loose.
She doesn't drink blood, instead she loves the warmth of fresh intestines.
She can regenerate rapidly, but has a limit on how many "lives" she stocks. Sort of like how Alucard in Hellsing works.
If you kill her enough times her personality will be destroyed, and turns her into some vile creepy wraith-like shadow creature with no reasoning.

He wasn't paying attention when the thug stabbed him in his stomach, while he was on full alert while fighting Rem for the 2nd time. Remember the first time she rekts him hard when he was unaware/debilitated.

It's like that in real life as well, when you let your guard down is usually when you get killed.

after he accepted her for who she is, and courageously put his hide on the line to save the village children from hellhounds.

Of course he can afford to throw his own life at the situations but from Rem's POV he's constantly nearly dying trying to save her.

It's pretty easy to say you could kill someone you care about, but I would imagine it would be extremely difficult and emotionally taxing to go through with killing a person, let alone killing someone you care about. Not to mention that in order for him to "reset" he has to die, and dying is a pretty fucking unpleasant thing that your body works it's hardest to try to prevent you from doing both physically and psychologically.

Being a neet doesn't make him a sociopath, he still very much has plenty of empathy.

>>139636631
But he is a neet, he was about to drop out of school, he never worked a day in his life prior to the mansion, and outside of the mandatory education he received while growing up he had no training.

What do you think a neet is oniisan
>>
>>139636679
from his perspective he's known them for 3 weeks, and though he does find out the kindness he was getting from them was fake, he's socially retarded being essentially a hikikomori.
>>
>>139636697
>about to drop out of school

And there's your disqualification for neet status.
>>
>>139636697
NEET and shut-ins are two different things. You can be both, and often goes together, but they do not mean the same thing.

Subaru is a shut-in. He hasn't dropped out of school yet, although now that he's stuck in alternate world he will have to.

A student cannot quality a NEET, you must be out of school and capable of serving the society yet choose not to.
Neet is Not in Employment, Education, or Training.
>>
>>139636600
Never killed a person, but killed a few pests. It is not that hard but is also not that easy. I feel guilty about ending a life, since I consider life precious. But the act of killing itself is the easiest part, you just blank out and just do it.

I don't know if it's just me, but is a weird sensation.
>>139636631
He mentions he's unemployed though, no clue if he goes to school.
>>
>>139636761
He's a highschooler.
He even says being stuck in the world will cause him to drop out (since he won't have enough school days to qualify graduation if he's stuck in the world)
>>
>>139636752
>>139636743
He was about to drop out because he had stopped going to school.

He had become a neet.
>>
>>139636752
And to add, if you're incapable of becoming a working class due to age, disability, or other medical condition you're not a NEET either. In Subaru's case the age would be the issue here, as well as him physically trapped in another world.
>>
>>139636822
No dumbfuck he was a hikikomori. There's a difference.
He basically needs to ACTUALLY drop out of school and hit the age of 18 to be considered a NEET.
>>
>>139636822
Technically not. Since he was still enrolled in the school he was not yet a NEET.
However, since he was not going to go again I find it acceptable to call him a NEET even though it's technically wrong.
Just call him a hiki since that is both more correct and doesn't offend autists.

>>139637259
Well Re:Zero has been a very strange case.
Since its conception in Narou, Kadokawa has been pushing the title despite its low sales and low popularity ratings in Narou.

They kept printing novels, extras, and comic adaptation even back when the title was only in the top 150 of Narou, and novel sales were abysmal.
The sales never really improved much, and suddenly bam we also get an anime adaptation.

Since the anime announcement the title shot up in Narou rankings, and now in the top 30.

Mind you I've always liked this series, but the marketing around it certainly feels like manufactured popularity.
Like "we keep throwing money at it until general public notices it".

Either someone in Kadokawa really has faith in the series, or there's an attempt to force a franchise.
There's definitely something going on behind the scenes that we're not aware of.
None of Re:Zero's sales or rankings justify so much attention given to it by the publisher.
>>

>Mind you I've always liked this series, but the marketing around it certainly feels like manufactured popularity.

Business is that way anyway. That's how things get popular as well. Show yourself to a whole lot of people.

I think Kadokawa had more faith in this than Konosuba. 25 episodes off the bat? That give a whole different impression.
>>
>>139637371
Sometimes I'm not sure I like knowing truth behind things like this.
It's why I don't keep track on popularity.
>>
>>139637413
It's not impossible, just highly unusual.

K-ON! and Miyazaki's Whisper of the Heart are rare cases of such example.
>>
>>139637371
Adding to this: despite is low novel sales, this title has had a very vocal and zealous fanbase in Japan for the past three years on the net.
The publisher may have placed their bets on these fanbase to do the evangelical work on their own.
>>
>>139637371

Arc2: At the end of the arc 2 you are reading, everything works out, Rem falls in love with Subaru, and the village children are saved.

Arc 3 starts out with Queen candidate meeting and to start the competition for the throne. Subaru loses trust of everyone, gets his ass beat by Julius in a duel after making an ass of himself, broken and alone except for Rem, he starts training under Vilhelm.
He finds out the mansion is in danger and tries to find a way to get back, but the White Whale of Gluttony is a threat on the road to avoid.
On the way he and Rem are captured and killed by the Cult. In some loops he manages to reach the mansion alone, but only to find the children he befriended piled in a mount of corpse, Ram mutilated in front of them, Emilia dead, and Puck's rage causing the entire land to freeze and kill Subaru.

In one of the encounters Subaru is tortured and have to see Rem slowly ripped to pieces to death and he is driven insane.
The next loop he's a drooling madman, but Rem tries to carry him back to the mansion, only to end up getting mutilated again and again.
Subaru finally manages to snap out of his madness thanks to anger, and vows to end this in the next loop.

Subaru realizes he needs to reconcile with people in the capital and find help.
He learns to atone for his arrogance, use his brain, and win back the trust of people.
He eventually manages to bring Julius, Vilhelm, soldiers under Cruche, and mercenaries of Anastasia to follow him.
The next dozens of chapters is dedicated to fighting the Whale. Those eaten by the White Whale are literally ERASED from the world, as if they never existed. Only Subaru can remember them. The group eventually defeats the whale.

This is the halfway point of arc 3. The brutal and bloody clash with the Witch Cult is the second half.
And true despair is in the second half.
>>
>>139638202
I won't get into a lengthy description of the second half:
After the battle is finally won by Subaru and Betelgeuse, the Bishop of Sloth is killed, Subaru finds out that Bishop of Gluttony has eaten Rem. She is in a coma, and no one, not even Ram remembers who Rem was.

Rem was the only one who stayed with Subaru and supported him with unconditional love all this time, and Subaru couldn't bear it. So he kills himself.

Subaru wakes up to realize by defeating the Witch Cult the save point had moved forward. It is now impossible to save Rem. He despairs.

Arc 3 is longer than Arc 1 & 2 combined, man.
Just arc 3 is taking like 6~7 LNs to cover it.
>>
>>139638266
I'm gonna add onto the suffering because I'm an asshole.
Rem brings up how she loves Subaru and wants to be with him, and due to her amazing support during the ordeal, he seriously considers it but tells her he still prioritizes Emilia.
Rem is alright with this and will do her best to convince to take them both, and of course Subaru will give it a shot but will abide by whatever Emilia decides on.
So once the fight is over and everything's peachy, he brings it up to Emilia on their way to rendezvous with others including Rem.
Except Emilia has no idea who this Rem girl is, and no one else does either, and he later finds her in a coma with no one else knowing who she even is either.
So he kills himself and it's already saved past the point where it happened.

To rub salt in the wounds, the author writes a series of what if chapters where Subaru & Rem run away and get married, happily with two kids.
>>
>>139638202

I knew it since the beginning.
The slow and tranquil music, the wam colors of the scenery, the beautiful and kind half-elf heroine.
It couldn't be something happy.

First arc of manga looked nice. It had that "I'll overcome everything to save the beautiful girl I love" vibe. But at the beginning of the second arc and after reading everything you posted I realize it sounds more and more like Subaru will become just another version of PSTD Takeru from Muv-Luv.

>>139638266
Does he even keep his unconditional love to Emilia by this point? Or does she become just a side character? Also, do you think they'd release a second season after this?
This is true despair. The manga comes out monthly, there aren't any LN translations and we can only hope the anime will cover till arc 3 or beyond.

>>139638351
Oh man I don't know why the author does this. Does he even want to write a proper, happy and fullfilling ending to this novel?

>Does he even keep his unconditional love to Emilia by this point? Or does she become just a side character?
Subaru always keeps his unconditional love for Emilia. Granted Emilia herself doesn't seem to be romantically interested in Subaru until like the end of the 4th arc, and even then her romance is very...platonic.
Pack raised her to be a girl very ignorant in the ways of romance and men.

Rosewaal basically forces Emilia to undergo a trial she has no way of overcoming without Subaru's help.
Emilia constantly mentally breaks in this arc.
There's also loads of other fun things. Like dealing with the mansion (Beatrice) getting attacked while they're away, a swarm of Gluttony rabbits (imagine a locust swarm, but of rabbits that are super deadly and can't be killed unless you kill them all at the same time) that need dealt with.
Not to mention Rosewaal himself clearly being an enemy.


And the best part? Subaru gets to see a what-if segment of what might have happened (the person showing him these doesn't know if they're parallel worlds or really just the world calculating what would have happened) after he dies in certain loops.
Like Emilia bawling over Subaru killing himself after finding out Rem was in a coma.
Or Ram and Beatrice shocked that Subaru jumped off a cliff and killed himself.
Pack getting killed by Reinhardt after killing Subaru.

Subaru takes this all very hard.

It will definitely get to Arc 3. I imagine Arc 2 will be ending in the first cour, and the entire second cour will be dedicated to arc 3.

They may be able to cover all if they skip or consolidate some of the loops.
Arc 3 is way too long to do faithfully, it'd be a drag to be honest. I'd settle for some creative liberty taken just to wrap the series up well.
>>
>>139638686
I think I already know the answer but, Is the WN translated and available to read somewhere?

Also, do you think after arc 6 there's still juice left to this series or is it approaching an ending. Shit sounds just like an endless loop of misery and tragedy.
>>
>>139638755
Ah so it's understandable if they cut some stuff for arc 3 because it's too long and draggy? Well that's understandable. Draggy stuff are not good for animated shows.

Arc 6 isn't even solving any of their current problems so far.
They go to the Sage's tower to find out how to help cure Gluttony's bullshit and things about the other Bishops.
Except getting there was near impossible and once they get inside, the sage isn't even there and the caretaker is a complete dumbass that has no idea about anything ever.
Not to mention they're forced to solve puzzles. PUZZLES!


So yeah, there's plenty to go.
>>
>>139638757
Arc 6 is nowhere near the end, I think it may be halfway point.
We still have no clue what Satella's endgame is or how it's connected to Emilia, why she (probably) brought Subaru there, or why she's madly in love with him.

>>139638809
>or how it's connected to Emilia
Did you miss the parts where the Bishops want to use her as the witch's vessel and in arc 4 the witch just outright fucking possessed her?

And she didn't bring Subaru there; they went on what, Anastatia's idea? Envy had nothing to do with anything.
Not to mention Emilia has yet to even be close to becoming Queen, and Subaru still has to suffer through collecting the other Sins to become a sage that certain people want him to be.

>>139638861
Considering she murdered them even when he wasn't there (in the first timeline) I doubt she was going to let them live for real anyways.

What the fuck is that?! Is the author some kind of psychopath that only wants to ever deliver suffering and without actual development?

With that much tragedy happening I'd expect it was at least worth some answers.

It's more like Subaru is weaker than almost literally everyone in the cast.
Granted the cast is a bunch of really strong people according to the setting, but since there's like hardly any normal people for reference, it's hard to come off that way.

So you had 2 choices, grind runes for years until you could read japanese or wait for years until ND/YP release anything. If anything, YP would have had a faster pace than ND, same reason I desperately want them to pick up grimgal, ND an equally slow shit as YP, but with YP I get fancy physical books at least

What good would a single normal invisible punch do?
Even it catches him off guard, its power is pathetic.
Especially since Slothy could use it to literally mow down trees.
And Subaru is limited to 1 short arm compared to Sloth's like 100 long-ass arms, as well as using it fucks him up so bad he may as well not at all.


The only time it helped was with magical surgery on the waifu.
>>
what decides Subaru's checkpoint? I thought it would update after evading his death like it did with Erza? But apparently it updates when Lem dies?

I mean I guess he technically did avoid his death, so of course it updates to that time so.. did I just answer my own question?

Maybe people in charge simply like the series?

Seriously, LN fags are probably the worst fanbase in the entire manga/anime industry. When something like Mahouka can become a super hit you know something is very wrong.

It's possible they want to expand beyond the LN readers. LN's by themselves don't make much money. If you get a hit anime that sells a lot of BD's and merchandise you will make much more money than even top selling LN's.

He doesn't fit the stereotype of NEET, though. He mentions that even though he's never fought anyone before, he works out a lot. Hence why when he thought the thugs were unarmed he took them on, but when he saw they had a knife he did what people in real life are always told to do in a knife fight.

So by the middle of arc 3 he's still a pussy?
>>
>>139648889
You mean when he get one-shotted in the dark when he couldn't see jackshit until he was already dying on the floor after being shanked in the intestines?
>>
>>139648942
Less pussy and more immature dumbass.
>>
>>139648889
>not scared enough to run away
He was scared to death. He coudn't even move.
>>
>>139647749
Not him, but he clearly felt the pain of death and there's no way to explain experiencing an whole day's events only to realize you're still standing in front of the fruit stand from that morning with the guy telling you the same shit from that morning.
He points out so much shit immediately that it would only take a retard like him to not put two and two together.
>Salesman never saw you before.
>It was nighttime when you died.
>Your stomach is completely fine despite getting eviscerated.
>Muggers never saw you.
>Old man back from the dead, doesn't recall dying when asked.
There's also more shit that would immediately make anyone think "I'm looping" or "I can respawn?"
Still, just re-spawning isn't even the half of what's actually going on, just thinking he has the ability to come back to an earlier point in time makes sense and is believable, now if he knew the finer details of his curse then there would be a problem.
>>
>>139648293
This. It was also done before the anime aired, which I don't know......feels very strange.
>>
>>139649128
I think most people would first ask themselves if they could see the future / possible futures first. Since that's a lot safer of a bet to rely on than to hope that you can respawn / time loop.

Keep in mind, did you see his eyes at the beginning, when he mentions he's really low on sleep from gaming? Fucker looks like he hasn't slept in 48 hours and could pass out any second. It's a bit reasonable for him to think he's also just tripping the fuck out.
>>
>>139647063
I thought about this also. Does he not remember everything when he respawns?
>>
>>139649547
> Fucker looks like he hasn't slept in 48 hours

that's nothing when adrenaline is at full gear though.

>>139648448
>the legendary "From Zero" chapter
The fuck? So in Japan it's legendary if someone realizes he's been doing shit and then suddenly steps up?
>>
>>139649767
Just among the fans. It was at that point they realized why the protagonist was so annoying and dumb, and why he was being put through hell.
Reader epiphany chapter if you will, the author set it up to build up to it.
>>
>>139650013
>why the protagonist was so annoying and dumb, and why he was being put through hell.
So there was a reason for that?
>>
>>139650013
>It was at that point they realized why the protagonist was so annoying and dumb, and why he was being put through hell.
There is an actual reason why the author puts him through gruesome deaths? I thought he just wanted it that way.
>>
>>139635958

I'm hoping most of the anime will be dedicated to arc 3. I can see arcs 1 and 2 being handled in 10-13 episodes, depending on if they can skim over the more uneventful loops. That would leave a whole 13 episodes, an entire cour, to get through arc 3, which sounds like it would make for a good finale.
>>
>>139638923

All we know is that she's batshit insane and madly in love with Subaru.
>>
>>139639106

Well, if the anime does well it could get a second season. The fact that they're going for 2 cours tells me that they're interested in more than just advertising the LN.
>>
>>139650013
Does that mean the Witch of Envy is the author's self insert and the endgame is to give everyone character development through traumatic experiences?
>>
>>139650090
For character development. literally zero to hero.
>>
>>139650013
Oh, that's kinda neat.

Why do people like Lem if Emilia is clearly better?

it's "who killed him in the past loop".

also my screen is poor (18"). that's the best I could reasonably get.

>>139651834
There's crazier women in this series than the guts fetishist, and crazy doesn't mean attractive appearances either.
>>
>>139650488
The Witch of Envy's endgame is making Subaru strong enough that he can survive being with her. You heard it here first. Ai yo.
>>
>>139647986

Do you think a random guy would get teleported to another world for absolutely no reason? He's in deep shit anyways.
>>
>>139652044

That sounds stupid.

Can anyone comment on how different the LN is to the WN?

The WN is easier for me to read since of a handy popup dictionary but I'll just read the LN if the WN is missing anything major.
>>
Is this another harem series?
>>
Why are there two episode 1's?
>>
>>139652494
Fuck off with your bait.
>>
>>139652494
Does two girls count as a harem?
>>
>>139652541
It's just two parts. Rakugo last season also had a double length first episode.
>>
>>139652494
It's more of a mystery horror with cute girls.
>>
>>139652575
>>139652582
>>139652626
I see tens or more girls on the LN cover with the MC
>>
>>139652738
Most of them already have husbandos.
>>
>>139650013
then arc 6 they realize that his still that dumb and less annoying.

fucking subaru frustrates me
>>
>>139652822
Elaborate please!
>>
>>139652855
Ram wants to fuck Rosewaal.
Crusch wants to fuck the trapcat (kinda?)
Prsicilla wants to fuck her harem of shota butlers.
Anastasia wants to fuck money, which happens to not be Subaru.
Felt is busy getting kidnapped by the strongest person in the kingdom and is developing Stockholm Syndrome for him, so that's also out.

Anyone else you got questions about?
>>
>>139652822
>no response
So it's bullshit so most likely this is another LN harem series.

Not him but what is there to elaborate?
You said there was a lot of girls in the covers and the other anon told you that they aren't interested in MC and have interest in other male characters instead with a curt "They have husbandos".
>>
>>139653031
>beatrice
> the twins
>the red headed woman knight
> the green hair woman
>>
>>139653067
beatrice, the twins, the red haired knigt woman, the green hair woman and the unknown mysterious wizard that like MC so the MC has the scent of high level wizards
>>
>>139653116
Beatrice isn't human, she's humanoid shaped living magic. And she's a mothercon and pack-con.
Ram is one of the twins, and the other one does actually want the protag D.
The red headed woman knight is from a flashback. She's the redheaded guy's grandmother and the old badass butler looking guy's wife.
The green hair woman is Crusch you silly.
>>
>>139653218
who cares she isn't human or not why crushch want to fuck a female cat woman wtf

What woman wouldn't want to fuck this clearly not-a-guy womanly woman cat?
>>
>>139648942

Arc 3 is basically his come to jesus moment, except replace jesus with beatrice

I'm reminded of MGS2 when they talk about the idea of the pop-charts being rigged so that people go to what they believe is popular with other people, thus making it popular among the masses, when the metric is completely BS
>>
>>139653431
i don't see that crusch woman is interested with that bitch cat, female or male. your point?
>>
>>139653584
My point is you're autistic.

>>139652210
Where are you reading the WN from /a/non?
I'm a N4 japanese student but I'm so hyped for this series that I'm willing to try and read the novels dictionary in hand just to know what happens next.
>>
>>139639991

its all about pacing your market.

Over-saturate it with multiple volumes, before you know anyone is even interested, and you can lose a major investment in time and money.

besides, its easier to do a print edition of 10,000 copies of volume one than to try to do multiple editions at the same time, hoping they all sell
>>
>>139653638
Your point is you're an idiot! Go get better brain you braindead newfag!
>>
>>139653672
Google the series in Japanese and it's like the first link.
>>
If this is not a harem why all girls keeps multiplying with none of them deadd and has affection to MC and keep adding more liliana the purple girls and we have not known the witch that like the MC so he has the scents of witch
>>
>>139647986

he has basically no resources other than what he gets in those chase encounters.

Its why the respawn point is set there, so he can
