If he has the guts to commit suicide (no clue if he does). He doesn't really have to be that smart.
Just tolerant toward pain and mentally strong (which he doesn't seem to be) and he'll succeed eventually.
Will the anime even cover it?
>Beast of burden is a dinosaur
I fucking love when instead of horses people use things like lizards or giant birds in fantasy
He probably has such a power because he's so dumb. It would be too OP on someone with a brain.
ICKETT! ICKETT BAGGE!
I hope that white whale causes lots of suffering. Wouldn't feel right otherwise.
>Cute cat folk riding dogs
>Wolfman riding huge wolf.
>AH AH TIME FOR SWORDS Old man just fucking charging on foot and keeping up.
There's so much goodness in this world
I've read to where the manga stops I want more but won't get more because I can't read runes.
Fuck my DICK. Hopefully they wrap up the first two arcs in the first half of the show and then use the rest of the episodes for the 3rd arc. Then we wait forever for everything else.
Or get spoiled on everything.
First two episodes covered 6 chapters of the manga so it should catch up with the translated manga by around episode 8
I can tell this series is going to be a pain waiting for each episode
Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg... and my arm... even my fingers. The body I've lost... the comrades I've lost... won't stop hurting... It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you?
Don't read it, translation stops at the worst possible moment and there hasn't been an update in a month because there's probably no raw provider and they need to wait for the tank.
>Realize he´s in a another world quite fast
>Too fucking dumb to grasp a simple rewind/time travel gimmick after two restarts
Are you legit retarded mate? It was fucking awful. The girls seems to be your standard stereotypes to boot. Just another fucking beta harem LN garbage.
Also that shitty CG.
Jesus, I just realized he has no one to share his rage with. At least Kaz had Boss. Subaru has nobody.
>there hasn't been an update in a month because
>A month ago
Updates are a bit sporadic but scanlators usually update once a month, sometimes more.
>because there's probably no raw provider
They get it from Big gangan every month. These guys just have other translations going on and, like every translation group ever, are understaffed when it comes to actual translators.
Got a question for LN readers, minimal spoiler response if possible:
How does the show handle the side/supporting cast?
I mean, i'm abit concerned about all the potential development that occurs constantly getting reset when the MC dies, only to then be overwritten with a different set of outcomes once the MC does things differently.
Are there going to be alot of relationship-resets, like what happened in the first episode with the white haired chick?
Read the manga. It's pretty good.
Pic related for best girl.
>If he has the guts to commit suicide (no clue if he does).
He does, but it's not necessarily a good thing. The novels bring up the possibility that all the timelines he lives in continue on even after he dies and reloops. So he gets shown one timeline where he committed suicide to forcible end the loop, but the loop continues on after he commits suicide and the half-elf walks in and sees his corpse, and breaks down crying.
That's some damn powerful witch.
Also, who's this cute?
I'm pretty damn jealous.
So she could basically totally fuck up every plan he has?
Man, I messed up, I'm going to kill myself now.
And the witch goes.
Ha ha, you faggot, the reset is only 10 minutes ago.
If she wanted to be a real bitch she could,
save the checkpoint when he's locked into a bossfight and dying.
But she won't do anything bullshit like that because
she actually loves him.
seems like the manga got to the 23rd chapter of the 2nd arc which is its halfway point
I think they'll be able to squeeze the 1st and 2nd arc into the first half of the show and then do the 3rd arc with the last half of the show seeing as it's longer than both 1 and 2
Arc 3 is pretty much composed of three parts
part 1: Fall of Subaru, insanity, and then him getting back up on his feet
part 2: Subaru organizes an army to fight the White Whale
part 3: Showdown with Betelgeuse, Bishop of Sloth and a leader of the Witch Cult.
Then end the chapter with despair.
Betelgeuse, Bishop of Sloth and a leader of the Witch Cult.
When do we learn about all that shit? I've only read to the updated Manga but they say nothing of any of these things. Ubless it all happens at the start of the 3rd arc
The girls are cute, and they don't annoy the fuck out me. I'll probably watch this to the end unless it gets retarded.
I know but all that stuff I listed is learned during the 3rd arc? I was looking at the WN and it seems to be split in 6 parts...so there's a lot to adapt though I'm sure we are only going to get these 25 episodes and then they'll be done with it sadly. Hopefully it does well so they adapt the rest. Just how long is the 3rd 4th 5th arcs?
When do we learn of her actual name? Will we see it in the show?
Tbh I missed the first threads with I'm sure of spoiler dumps...anyone got the threads or spoilers to get me current?
Arc 2 (where the manga is covering) ends with both the mansion and the village saved and Rem falling in love with Subaru.
Arc 3 starts with the queen competition dragon rites happening at the capital and Emilia heads to attend it along with 4 other candidates.
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.
Despite all that happened Rem stays with Subaru's side and supports him with unconditional love.
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.
It was mentioned at the end of the first episode already. Cruncyroll translated her title as "Jealous Witch" instead of "Witch of Envy" though. Which I guess is understandable if they weren't familiar with the source material.
Bit of both from my understanding. He wasn't like, one of the delinquents whose constantly getting into fights, but one of the ones that just skips class. Even if he doesn't really have any friends and doesn't go outside much, he exaggerates by calling himself a hikkimori since he's perfectly okay with going outside, and talking with clerks and such.
It's like some normalfag saying
>Wow, I didn't go to any parties this week, I'm such a loser with no friends lol
After the White Whale is defeated, the save point moves forward again.
Subaru organizes the remaining team to confront the Cult of the Witch and his arch nemesis, Betelgeuse.
Long story short they fail several times of course, as the Bishop is no joke. But each time Subaru learns his methods and motives, and can plan out the next loop.
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 all this time, and he couldn't bear this end. So he kills himself.
Subaru wakes up to realize by defeating the Witch Cult the save point had moved forward to right before he finds Rem.
It is now impossible to go back in time to save Rem. He despairs.
End of Arc 3.
Oh and bonus, we're in arc 6 and he still hasn't managed to save her.
He's still carrying her comatose body around.
Chapter 13 start.
Needless to say, the posing in chapter 12 didn't help.
Subaru is a little different case than normal, he's not a shut-in because of social anxiety.
He became a shut in because of inferiority complex to his dad.
He has this super awesome perfect dad that everyone compares him to, and he couldn't bear it.
Subaru is actually a pretty capable guy, but he doesn't feel that way because his dad is so much better.
Right before Subaru mans up in the first half of arc three, he almost gives up and tells Rem they should run away from this together. She talks him out of it.
Then the author then wrote series of EX chapters about alternate reality where Rem takes up on the offer, and the two run away and get married. They live in peace with two children.
Vilhelm, the "Sword Demon".
He's the second strongest swordsman in the story, but still dies a lot. There's a huge power gap between him and Reinhard, the "Sword Saint"
I think I still want elf grill to win though.
Speaking of elf grill how is that going for him going into the 6th arc? Also how much do you think will get adapted through the anime?
Up to 3rd arc without a doubt. The real question is whether they try to finish the entire 3rd arc, or try to end it part-way in.
It's not really 'bad luck", so much as, he spawned in as a lvl 5 in a world where most of the important people around him are like, lvl 50+.
I don't see how they can end it half way....you think it'd be possible to do it in 12/13 episodes? I'm hoping it sells well so more will be adapted. Though I heard that this isn't really popular and for some reason got an adaption
There's three places they could end in arc 3.
1st is "From Zero" when Subaru recovers from insanity and decides to be a better man
2nd is when they defeat the White Whale.
3rd is at the end of the arc, obviously.
They will definitely have to consolidate some of the loops to speed up the story if they want to cover the whole thing in the 2nd cour.
>His self declared waifu is powerleveling him by forcing him to grind mobs 50 levels higher than him and giving him savepoints after boss fights
He's either going to come out the other side of this mindbroken or a Super Saiyan.
Or they could finish the first two volumes quickly before focusing on arc 3.
That's not bad luck, the first arc with Elsa trying to kill him is only because he involved himself with Emilia. If he had just decided to abandon her / avoid the warehouse, he could have completely avoided that confrontation.
In the second arc, Rem and Ram keep killing/trying to kill him because
he smells like the Witch of Envy, i.e. they mistook him for a member of the Witch Cult who was trying to spy on them. At first that smell was faint, so they kinda brushed it off "maybe it was our imagination" or, "maybe someone related to him is involved" kind of thing, but that he himself was mostly innocent. But everytime he loops, the scent of the Witch of Envy gets stronger and stronger, so in later loops they basically immediately went to "This guy is definitely a member of the Witch's Cult".
I.e. if he just decided to dump his current people and associate with other people, he'd be perfectly fine.
At least unless the Witch of Envy decides to purposely intervene.
The only possible route
Subaru keeps getting "dark as fuck" powers.
1. Power of shadow mist
2. Sloth's evil invisible hand of god (witch cult)
3. Greed's temporary invincibility (witch cult)
4. Corrupt dragon blood that rots other humans but only turns Subaru's skin pitch black (witch cult, Lust related)
5. His scent of the evil Witch gets stronger as he goes
So yeah his yandere self declared waifu seems to be reshaping him to match her vileness.
He gets plenty of powers.
They usually just either prove ineffective other than in limited situation, or hurt him more than help.
Basically like how powers work in Supernatural, you know how Sam Winchester gets powerups that does nothing but harm?
He gets strong enough to survive limited situations. Never strong enough to mano mano any real powerhouses.
He has to use his powers very carefully and selectively.
Every talent he gets adds to further suffering.
I believe the MC will overcome all odds and beat her and take his waifu
Inb4 he wins and the ending is where he gets teleported back to the real world and he remembers everything but everyone is gone
I'm somehow enjoying this more than Erased.
DESU I hate most of LN fantasy shit, but this show got my attention. It still have shitty LN elements, but the mc at least is more likable than Kirito or Tatsuya.
If he even THINKS about revealing his powers, the Witch finds out and brings him pain.
If he forces himself through the pain and reveal it the people who heard him gets killed by the Witch.
He can't even suggestively try to reveal it because the Witch is reading his mind 24/7
Nah. Need at least 2 or 3 more arcs to wrap this up.
Well, if the author really wants to he could probably get it wrapped up in arc 7, but it'd be rushed to all hell. Too many plots to close.
Have you ever played video games?
You know how you go through stages and learn it, die, and start again so you can eventually perfect it?
Or are you too babby to remember when games used to be like that.
Getting allies to fight the big mean witch? I'm gonna guess she's gonna be the final boss....or who knows maybe emilla was the big bad ALL ALONG. With the way the author is I doubt we will get an actual happy end.
Thanks for the dump anon
I though the whole world reset itself in general
From the other thread.
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.
>No matter how manytimes you come back and save yourself, everyone else has to suffer when you're gone
that sucks, he can't even do the whole "I will protect everyone" shit and he'll never know because he doesn't exist in those worlds
They don't know at this point.
The primary goal is to win the Queen competition so Emilia will be the queen.
So Subaru's allies are supposed to be rival faction - it's just that none of them are actually bad people and when true evil knocks on door they ally up to fight.
From reader META perspective, yeah, the big bad is the Witch Cult. And possibly Satella, but we don't know what her true intentions are and she's not exactly talkative. She seems to be pretty fried and consumed in madness.
Fugg well thanks for the info I'm still looking forward to seeing everything animated though. I'm pretty interested in this one for some reason so I hope it does well.
I think it's just that I really want to see the MC win
I hope we get a 2nd season so we can see Bishop of Greed.
The guy is like the embodiment of jackasses on the internet
He constantly rants in tl;dr that paints himself in the right and everyone else in the wrong, justifies why he gets to be the asshole while calling everyone else assholes and ignorant imbeciles, has excuse for everything, insanely self centered and petty, and never. shuts. up.
The most effectively annoying nut in the series.
adding, you guys remember that NEET from One Punch Man?
Imagine if that guy had power to be invincible to any attacks and able to scare many women to be his bitches.
That's basically Bishop of Greed.
If you mean outside of spoiler brackets. It was just a retard, he heard that "Satella" is the evil Witch of Envy, and Emilia lied and told Subaru that her name was actually "Satella' in episode 1.
Though apparently there's some theory that there's some timeline fuckery going on and Stella is Emilia from the future who transported herself into the past, and is the Witch of "Envy" because she's envious of the current Emilia who is by Subaru's side.
I genuinely love Subaru's design
Fuck, so if he killed himself the people who cared for him have to deal with that forever in that certain timeline? That's crazy I am really glad that we are getting 25 episodes.
So what killed Rem in his third loop? i thought the debilitating curse that keep killing subaru in the first to second loop on the 4th Night is a curse put by someone and instead of subaru its Rem that caught it on the third/fourth loop?
>He gets strong enough to survive limited situations. Never strong enough to mano mano any real powerhouses.
>He has to use his powers very carefully and selectively.
I don't get it.
This manga kills my heart. Every time I see everyone happy I just think back to how they are brutally murdered all the time. I couldn't imagine how much it fucks MC's mind when he's in the actual situation.
No if I read the manga I would lose all interest in the anime.
So I must use restraint and NOT read it at all costs.
I want to protect Subaru's goofy, innocent, and pure (as snow falling from the sky) smile.
It's a slippery slope for me. Seriously, I say that but before you know it I'm reading up to the latest.
WHY WOULD THEY LET THE BEST GIRL DIE AND HAVE HIM NOT BE ABLE TO TIME-LOOP BEFORE THIS
Oh shit you're probably right. I couldn't tell from the off panel talking in the manga but Rem looked surprised from the sudden attack. Both twins are worst girl, I hope both get their just deserts.
the whole LN art look like a harem because most of them where the MC grabbing boobs, hugging, or flirting with many woman. this is like your typical harem series where every girl that MC met fall in love with him right away, though.
Because he gets fucking shanked at once and he's so scared and mind's jumbled, and I'm also pretty sure he wasn't really trying to "hear" her while he was dying. He has other priorities in his mind, like you know, panicking why the fuck did that just happen to him. Especially as well that he doesn't know his world will reset after dying for the FIRST TIME.
Why are you guys so sure that if it was you who was shanked like that, will be able to perfectly remember stuff?
Are they going to finish the entire web novel since this is a 25 episode series? The manga is very slowly being updated but thats not even complete story wise. We may finish elf twin maid arc like what? episode 8-10?
>never fought before
>knocks down a large grown man in one hit
I don't think the author has been in many fights.
What a tiny semen demon. Can't wait to see her animated.
There's no NTR and I think you're blind because the only elf in the story seen so far is Emilia to begin with.
And she probably doesn't even know what a kiss is, let alone how to do it.
MC's kinda /fit/ and while he's never been in a fight he knows how to dish out a proper punch by twisting his body along instead of being in a static position; there's also the fact fatman got caught by surprise and those guys are low tier scum forced to mug people to survive, they aren't really hardened fighters to begin with, relying more on intimidation first and foremost.
There are many factors to think about, after all, a knockout doesn't happen because you got clocked in the jaw, it happens because your brain got rattled and disorientated from that haymaker.
This is fiction, mang, fights are usually pretty over the top and have inconsistencies; I mean this show also doesn't portray some deaths realistically, like how MC gets stabbed and dies shortly after when the place he got stabbed in and the blade would have made it at least a full hour of agonizing pain before he passed out.
Huh? Do you really bleed out that slowly from an open dagger wound in the liver? I know for a fact that a blade firmly longed in your gut is not as deadly as it seems if no large internal bleeding is taking place, but still, an hour of bleeding out?
People are pretty sturdy. It's mostly lack of treatment in time that kills people.
Like there's horror stories of guys getting shit like a pipe lodge clean through their cranium that comes out the other side that have been fine for a while, but they usually die before too long.
It's not quite accurate.
He's told that the timelines might continue to go on after his death in a parallel universe kind of thing.
Or the visions he saw might just be the world predicting what would have happened in those timelines, but aren't actually real and there is only one timeline altogether.
The worst part is he has no way of knowing and has to suffer through each death imagining how horribly wrong everything went afterwards.
If the blade's lodged in then yeah it takes time, the size of the opening is also important.
Movies and media usually make deaths happen too fast; unless your brain or heart gets targeted death will come pretty slow.
Getting shot or stabbed in movies, you usually see the bad guy die instantly when in fact they would be on the ground, shards of metal lodged inside their body, maybe even for the remainder of the movie.
Like this guy said >>139688278 You underestimate the body's ability and drive to self preserve, shit like getting your head run over by a car, falling from a plane, hitting the side of a mountain and then falling to the ground at terminal velocity might make one think, yeah that's instant death, but people have survived that shit.
Even animals share this, some alahu snackbars were playing with explosives and a dog thought it was time to play fetch
Thing exploded in its mouth, dislodging the lower jaw and fucking up the dog, the worst part was the dog was alive and completely awareor like a chicken's body running around spurting blood everywhere or a cockroaches ability to live a full week without a head. that's rekt threads for you
Someone actually dying is very different from what shows on tv.
err i assume its the first thing subaru died in arc 2 right? which we dont even know as he died while sleeping?
or is it elsa?
Also Ram is fucking roswall right? that sexual tension before Subaru kicked the bucket the first time at 2nd arc (yea right having tea..)
Correct. The puppy in the village that bites Subaru every loop is actually a monster that curses people through its bites, and once it gets hungry (takes like 3 days to a week), it sucks the life out of the person they've bitten from afar.
Of course there's a lot more behind this that gets explained in the fourth arc, hilariously enough.
It's not common. Ram's race, the onis/ogres, intake mana in the air through their horns.
Ram, having lost her horn, can't do this anymore. Their horns are ironically a very important organ for their bodies.
Not to mention to feed people mana, you need to have matching attribute (think blood type, but with elements like wind etc), which only Rosewaal can do around her since everyone else has different types of magic.
fuck, that is pretty smart actually, the author did think the story through eh?
I have to re-read the arc 2 translated manga chapter repeatedly until i figure out what the difference between 1st, 2nd death and the death afterwards (where he actually fight with either rem or ram).
If only the author shown the same "mark" on Rem's corpse i might not need to re-read it too many times.
It's not sexual, just sensual. There's no actual substance transfer; it's basically like transferring your body warmth to someone by touching them, but with mana and intentionally.
Rosewaal's bisexual anyway. Granted he kind of has to be once you figure out his secrets.
The little girl Subaru goes alone to save from the monster dog is actually the one controlling them, a monster tamer, and the cause behind the monster dogs' sudden appearance. And she was hired by Rosewaal to do this.
Just cave and MTL the WN anon, I'm this close to doing it myself.
So I just read a few chapters of the manga.
I'm glad the anime was more detailed at the start, it felt rushed in the manga, left a lot characterization out. I assume anime is closer to the novel?
Megumin best elf. Also, twins are fun. Can't wait.
>I'm glad the anime was more detailed at the start, it felt rushed in the manga,
Nigga you're reading the Arc 2 manga then. There are three manga right now, one for each arc, the first, the second and the third.
oh wow... roswall what a fuckin dick, he even dare to mock subaru during rem's death in arc 2.
interesting how ram will actually act if she knows roswall was indirectly causing rem's death.. alas its on a forgotten loop alternate world already.
Oh thanks for the heads up. So each arc is a start from the top again?
So the first one is Ichinichi hen? and the other truth of Zero?
Should I be reading all of them in paralllel or finish ichinichi first?
>Should I read a concessive plot in order?
Gee anon I don't know.
Besides wasn't your complaint that they rushed the first arc?
Just step back, read that one then resume arc two.
It seems that Lem/Rem is more popular than Ram/Lam in pixiv.
He gets his dreams crushed, scheme foiled, and put in his place in arc 4.
He's still in the game as somewhat of a supporter, although I don't think Subaru revealed all the bad shit about him to others.
The two have come to an agreement for mutual interest.
>He gets his dreams crushed, scheme foiled, and put in his place in arc 4.
>He's still in the game as somewhat of a supporter, although I don't thin
what kind of bad shit things are roswall hiding?
I'll give you one freebie.
Rosewaal has been body snatching his descendants for centuries. His descendants can be of either gender.
Which means he's used to taking it as a woman and giving it as a guy.
It's why I called him bisexual earlier.
Yes. She actually falls in love with him.
This could however just be a byproduct of forgetting about Rem's existence, since she originally was with Rosewaal to get revenge on him at some point.
Where can I find the web novel?
