So its happening.
Is anyone else kind of disgusted that there are people in these threads that actually defend Subaru?
someone shop memeboy into the center please
Threadly reminder that Subaru is an absolute cunt.
The previous two episodes have proven just how much of a fucking scumbag Subaru is. It's honestly revolting how fucking wicked and distorted his worldviews are. Emilia didn't ask for him to kill himself billions of times for her, she didn't ask for anything, but he still went ahead, dead set on her like a tiger stalking their prey. All he really wants to do is get "muh hot elf girl" and feel like a badass hero. He doesn't care about the well-being of anyone else. Emilia is just an object to him, as is Rem.All Rem and the village were to him were just a means to attain better standing with his perfect waifu. Same with Felt, and virtually everyone else in the show. He doesn't give a shit about the villagers. He's said because he failed to protect them, and by proxy he's failed Emilia, and she's going to hate him even more. Same with Rem's death. It's so blatantly fucking obvious. Everything he does is perfectly calculated to improve his relationship with Emilia, akin to a worthless NEET coldly plowing through a visual novel, which makes perfect sense, considering his previous life.
His "selfless" nature is just self-masturbatory selfishness in disguise, further worsened by his entitlement to any sort of gratitude from the people he "saves," as if they owed him anything in return. They just fail to see how narrow-sighted and vapid he really is. As for Julius, he's been the most honorable male on the show, so far, right in front of Reinhardt. I'd go as far as to say that Subaru is only slightly above the Witch Cult members, but then again, I haven't spoiled myself as to what their motives are, or what they do. But anyway, Subaru has deserved everything that has happened to him, so far.
I can definitely see where the "Dark Lord" predictions are coming from. He's definitely morally bankrupt enough to be an evil tyrant, already.
I'm sick of self-insert faggots that shit on the series because the MC is not acting like they think he should.
If he acted the same way viewers want him to act (gary stu cool headed rational MC), then this would be Game of thrones cringe tier
This picture went exactly as I hoped
The thing is, I understand where he's coming from (as an outside observer). He did all this shit for people he didn't even know, then died multiple times. He just wants to be acknowledged.
That being said, I agree with you 100%, he needs to fucking grab his balls and realize no one cares about situations that they don't even know happened.
Who's the best 42nd King of Lugnica candidate?
Corruption never looked so perfect
>Subaru will eventually go insane and rape and torture Emilia all while whispering in her ear
>"You never asked for this, did you?"
nobody cares proxyfag
Crusch, of course.
They bowed down to the Dark Lord himself obviously.
Does at any point in the series Subaru try to kill himself, only to be saved by his comrades? Waking up to them watching over him and wondering why he killed himself, actively stopping him from any further self harm?
Will Felt ever have actual relevancy to the plot?
I can't even believe so many people are so stupid. Finally we have a round character who acts like a real human being, and they get mad.
Subaru was already broken in his real world. In this fantasy land his personal frustration is getting also worse not only because it would make crazy also the most "normal" person in the world, but also because he isn't able to be "someone" also here, in this reality that was supposed to be escapism, where he could become a hero loved by everyone, like in games.
Battle on the slopes of Pleiades when?
Last alliance of men and elves when?
Reinhardt versus Subaru when?
The free lands of Lucigna falls to the power of the ring when?
Spoil me, is Rem going to be ok?
I liked that when he approached the manor he was more concerned about Rem than Emilia.
I mean, chances are Emilia would have been killed as fuck based on everything else being dead and no signs of life around the manor either, but he was still focused on Rem.
She caught a bit of his heart.
Even in this huge group Subaru is treated as luggage.
tfw maybe it would better for her to stay dead like that
Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!
Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!
Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!
>I liked that when he approached the manor he was more concerned about Rem than Emilia.
It's not really this way. He was afraid because he knew she would have fought. Nothing says he was more afraid for Rem than for Emilia.
>mfw someone actually knows the black speech other than me
My fucking nigga
julius gets a bit closer to her. Which makes Subaru even more mad, which ends up in his capturing by the witch cult. While he's being tortured, Julius is comforting her about the incident with Subaru. They drink together and he holds her hand and kisses her in the cheek saying that she's sweet to worry for him, or something. No actual sex, though, so don't worry
>instead of admitting you made a typo get mad
What are you, 12?
She's by far the most fitting ruler.
I like her for her tits. Is that okay?
She's stronger than her own knight, Ferris
No no, its not true...
Fuck I've a feeling you're lying... I self-insert as Emilia and I DON'T want to get raped or gangbanged or anything like that (unless Emilia ends up enjoying it)... Somebody said something about tentacles, which I don't mind though.
>>That pointless drama at the end because death doesnt matter in the show
Yeah. It's so nice to see so many people dead, and know that the only possible way to reset everything is killing yourself. Everyone likes physical pain and killing themselves everyday.
I can't believe some people are serious.
She is going to have a hard time adapting since she has been out for almost 2 years already.
Why am I still here...
Just to suffer?
Every night... I can sense Rem...
Even my Ram.
The friends I've lost...
The lives I lost...
Won't stop hurting.
It's like they're all still there...
You feel them to don't you?
I'm gonna make them give back our waifu
she's the best because she's voiced by the best
Everyone's just playing along.
Subaru has the potential to become a dark lord, but he never does. Not yet at least.
By arc 6 he's been
tainted by absorbing at least two witch cult powers, demonic dragon blood in his body, witch's scent, and love of the biggest evil in the world. But still hasn't had any signs of becoming evil himself.
I say i quite enjoy Subaru turning into a douche.
>so that his fans hate him even more, he also writes a side-story in which Rem x Subaru is the main focus.
The author loves our despair.
I don't get it, the purge in Roswaal domain was supposedly happening because Emilia is half elf, meaning people think she has connections to the witch.
Why would they then spare a guy that stinks of witch as much, if not more then fucking mabeasts from some episodes before.
I want to protect Emilia's smile
Arise, arise, Riders of Kararagi!
Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered!
A sword-day! A red day!
Ere the sun rises!
Ride! Ride for ruin!
and the world's ending!
Forth Steel Batallions!
cant wait until he memes it up
These are really getting out of hand.
Do they imply he somewhat felt that Subaru has given up on actually working to better himself because he can always reset for his convenience, or was there some sort of mistranslation?
I love how a dumb meme is contagious as fuck. People joke about Subaru becoming the dark lord and then it warped into the Witch King and then into Sauron. Now every bloody character is gonna become a character in Tolkien's universe.
To be fair with Subaru, all this people don't know how to deal with someone with his mental issues.
Like, you know the guy is an autistic retard obssesed with Emilia who thinks he can do shit and you decide that telling him "You are useless, just stay here doing nothing" will improve the situation?
I get it that Rem is the only one that actually gives a fuck about him, but faggots could at least try to trick him into thinking he is somehow helping Emilia by staying where he is or something.
They are just adding oil into the fire.
If he turns, if, it's with total justification as he's been treated to shit and forced to eat it throughout this "other world" experience, a lot of pain and payback is completely within reason
This shot was great too. The faraway positioning of Rem's bloody flail amidst the warm colors and familiar background that we remember made it powerful to the point that it felt creepy.
Ram is red
Dead girl is blue
Emilia Tan trash
Beako boipucci too
Subaru is like the Bishops, every time he collects one of the Demon Souls he gets stronger and when he gets them all he will free the Old One
Reinhardt vs Subaru is the prophesized battle.
>Mainly because she is his only ally to help everyone.
Did you watch the episode. He had a full mental collage of her smiles
Alright you cunts i figured it out. Subaru was summoned into this world to become the next Pride.
>Pride (vanity, narcissism) — Pride is known as the father of all sins. Pride is a desire to be more important or attractive to others, failing to give credit due to others, or excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God).
In this episode he doubles down on his fucked up delusions where he saves the day despite being powerless. He wants to be the knight in shining armour and save Emilia to get recognition and shit.
Simply, I find this plot well written, and interesting. It's a nice mistery, and some characters, Subaru in the first place, are pretty tridimensional.
And do you know what? I'm female, so I don't watch it for the cute girls.
Why is everyone so autistic about Subaru being a retard? You know he'll eventually grow out of it and watching him improve his shitty personality is better than watching him being a perfect, cool guy who never loses his shit.
NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME WHY WON'T THEY UNDERSTAND ME
Basically Subaru has lost all sense of fear, whether that's fear of pain or death or social suicide.
Fear is what prevents us from doing embarrassing or plain stupid shit. A man without fear is a bloody idiot. He doesn't care what people think of him with his rude, obssessive attitude since he can just die and reset and try again. In the beginning his fear of dying and losing everything helped him be smart.
He began to try to learn more about the world around him so he can figure out what to do next. Now that he has gotten over dying being something to fear we get this deluded memelord.
All you fucks keep talking about who best girl is and the rest being shit or Subaru being autistic or how his actions are justified and here i am wanting to see more of Reinhard
I know right?
You can check out Mirdautas Vras from the Oath Bound album.It is also awesome.
It is in dark language.
I really like the changes Subaru has been going through in the latest episodes. Before, he was stagnant, with his deaths only superficially affecting him. Now we're getting insights into how Subaru actually thinks.
We can see that he expects some kind of reward for his suffering. He's still been thinking of his situation as a game, where he gets the princess in the end. He hasn't even been looking at people as people.
He's reasoning with himself how it is his mission to protect Emilia, and how he is best suited for that - and he isn't completely wrong, so he feels justified.
I'm pretty certain Subaru is turning out this way because he can't speak to people about his state, so he can't get any acknowledgment and he can't properly convey what he's had to go through.
Popular series attracts alot of shitposters.
That and we had an influx of literal autists who shitpost at cancer levels because that's the image of /a/ they somehow got and they want to fit in.
Rev up the human experimentation and torture. I am ready.
What does the clown gain from having his own territory raided? What if Subaru failed to meet his expectation?
>This bait is getting really annoying in the I've seen it a million times in 1 week already way.
What's mind boggling is that you participate in all of the threads. Why do that to yourself?
Seeing /a/ unanimously revile Subaru really makes me happy. This show is something that took a lot of courage for the studio to adapt, the voice actors to join, and for the author to write in the first place. To create a work that challenges everything otaku culture represents and otaku themselves are by unflinchingly baring all the flaws and darkness of the otaku mentality through Subaru.
The fact that we in the West are so engaged with and grateful for this work for daring to be bold and shatter the modern anime status quo means that if we can continue to become a greater source of revenue for the industry and content creators that we can directly be responsible for championing artistic freedom in anime, manga, and light novels.
Why create, when it will only be destroyed?
Why cling to life, knowing you'd have to die?
We all understand what you're saying.
The point is that in this adaptation, they made Subaru more unlikable or cringy.
Starting from arc 3, Subaru's actions and attitudes were more smart and modest in LN/manga.
Here, he got worse and now I'm starting to see a different Subaru compared to ones portrayed in the LN/manga.
Maybe you're right but as far as I know, there weren't much phrases describing Subaru as anime one.
At least that's nuance that I got from reading via my non-English language.
No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!
>Subaru canonically says that exact same phrase
He's getting there.
I only want western tastes to matter when the fucking neo dark age of PCness dies in a hole. A second season of Watamote is worth jack shit when Tumblrites are taken seriously
what the fuck guys?
This fucking cringer refuses training and healing to go back to emilia when she made it 100000% clear that she's doesn't want him to. What the actual fuck? It's his fault rem died. Now he can't get training or healing anymore and nobody likes him or trusts him.
He learnt nothing from Julius at all. NOTHING.
He's gonna suffer and suffer the more he chooses to be Emilia's fucking white knight
>more suffering is a bad thing for us
He is dellusional and thinks Emilia can't do shit without him. The whole point of this arc is that he learns to grow out of that retarded way of thinking.
Why are flawed characters so hard to get for some people?
Volume 2 Chapter 1 – Acknowledging Emotions
Opening his eyes, the first thing he saw was an artificial white radiance. Beyond that light was a large ceiling, with faintly glowing crystals in place, illuminating the room.
Confirming it as he began waking up, Subaru quickly regained consciousness thanks to his body’s constitution.
“…….The pillow feels different. The smell and quality is a tier above what I’m used to.”
Subaru thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of the duvet as he sat up from the bed, which had a faintly pleasant scent.
At a glance, the room was evidently high class. Even the bed he slept in was king sized, having enough space to fit five more people. The room, roughly twenty tatami mats in size, only had a single bed — what a weird use of space.
“The sorry lack of decorative pictures and furnishings in the room, seem to only emphasize the feeling of solitude. Is this fine for a guest room?”
Wide awake, Subaru got off the bed and lightly turned his limbs to check his physical condition. After confirming the state around his shoulders and legs on the spot, he finally flipped up his clothes and touched his stomach.
“The wound on my stomach……gone. The bruises as well, and even the incision marks huh. For stitches to not even remain, the surgery in this world must be excellent. That is, if my big success was not a delusion.”
He recalled his own stomach deeply sliced open among other series of events.
Subaru, who should have been a normal high school student in Japan on Earth, was suddenly summoned to another world and encountered death — literally, meeting death over and over again.
Being alive like this was the product of many miraculous coincidences.
“Still, how much time has passed since then…there’s no way for me to tell.”
>He hasn't even been looking at people as people.
I disagree in episode 10 he has trouble hitting Rem even though he knows it's the only way to proceed. In episode 11 after sitting through their backstory he sits her down and calls her way of thinking stupid. It's not that he doesn't look at them as people it's just that it's usually secondary and keeping them alive comes first he currently has tunnel vision.
>Why are flawed characters so hard to get for some people?
I actually think it's because people are actually unused to an MC with personality. After you've watched 100s of anime where the MC is either
>hot blooded moron
>cool headed gary tsu
then you would naturally recoil at an actual character.
He was going to kill himself to get rid of his fuck ups.
Alright I can't handle this bullshit.
I'm going to wait for this series to end before I continue watching it. Subaru is insufferable and I don't want to feel be pissed at him for weeks on end, when I can finish the show in a single day in the future.
Describe Subaru to me without using
>cringe, cringy or other variant
>/r9k/ robot or other variant
>did nothing wrong
I guarantee you none of you autistic fucks even know what his character actually is. Go ahead, take your time. I'll wait to be right as I always am.
Semana Santa in Seville Spain. Where those hoods really came from (so not kkk but religious). Oh and yes, they did recognise subaru man, i wonder which side sent them?
A nice guy trying to do what's right, but keeps getting pulled into shitty situations
>Why would they then spare a guy that stinks of witch as much, if not more then fucking mabeasts from some episodes before.
Wouldn't a human stinking like witch seem like a comrade rather than mindless mutant dogs?
don't half-ass the meme boy
I don't think anyone is whining other than trolls. We're all hyped because this episode marks the beginning of how he turns corrupted with hate and anger. Basically an arc for him to become more powerful.
