Al's backstory : http://pastebin.com/ar9BefPL
Al vs Lust fight in arc5 gives more insight on his abilities."The victim in the zone" and Al mentions of a zone during his fight.
>Its likely an effect that only work on a predetermined zone by Al.
>Its likely single target.
>There is a victim and an offender, and its decided on random.
>One side seems to be able to retain their memory. (Either Al or The victim) but regardless Al will always revives.
>The conditions of how the looping work is not explained, In the short story, Al dying triggered the loop.
>Al seems to be able to see through all of Lust's moves, but he say that he had repeated it a lot of times and she won't know about it.
>Al doesn't know he died while fighting Liep, this implies that Liep is the one who remembers.
>Al explained his past as a gladiator in Volakia Empire

>In the short story, Al dying triggered the loop.
Pastebin missed a part where Al beheaded the old man and they looped right back. Then it was implied he did it repeatedly till the mindbreak.
There are probably other conditions to trigger the loop. Or something to do with who's the offender and who's the victim.
Is there any significance in the name Betelgeuse
Rem's best girl status isn't even up for debate at this point.
Reminder that Rem is for cuddling and marrying.
Reminder that Rem is also for protecting her husbando.
Thats why i said the pastebin missed a lot of stuff.
After the old man Liep failed to kill Al, he requested Al to kill him. Al commented on "its probably only double digits number of time and you can't take it already?", then beheads him. Then it loops back to, ".. its the fault of the stars".
Scene change and we see Al carried the mindbroken Liep out of the room.
Al definitely has control over the loops somehow.
Before the fight Liep said "The house is full of my men, how do you think you gonna make it out?". Al replied he will take him as hostage. That's why he mindbroke him and carried him out.
Oh anon, you won't know what to expect next... seriously.
Of course she is. Speaking of which, does anyone know where a larger version of this picture is? Preferably one that isn't shit quality.
how many isekai fantasy anime that get a season 2 anon? i thought so.
The only reason this series got an Anime in the first place is because the editors and producers genuinely liked the WN a lot. Don't lose hope. Tappei can go work on the LNs after the Anime and once there's enough material they can make a second season. The LNs were being released at a pretty good pace too before the Anime.
Nah. Ram is fine. She's not quite best girl, but she's certainly far from the worst.
It's not like Ram knows all of the details.
So let me get this straight. The LN is already in volume 9, with 4 side story volumes, but is still at 25% of completion? Is this series THAT successful? Don't most LN series end with 10 volumes or something?
Got any good rage Rems? It's her angry faces which really made me like her.
From the spoilers I've been reading it really seems like there's some massive timeloop going on here.
Where Subaru was the original sage, who got warped back in time somehow, and Emilia is actually Satella, mind broken by witch factor and the deep envy she feels for Subaru's love of Rem.
Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he did shit like deliberately plant the tree in the past knowing it would be instrumental in taking down the white whale in the future.
Which implies to me that Subaru isn't going to get his happy end, and in a lot of ways is going to be indirectly responsible for the origin of Satella because of the love he no longer harbors for Emilia.
God, to make shit worse in the fourth arc after Rem goes into her coma Emilia has a mental breakdown, which Subaru pulls her out of by confessing a fake love for her and kissing her. Subaru is literally the worst.
How do we really know Felix has a dick?
Everyone could just be lying to Suburu to stop him creeping
The LN is easy to make. The only real money is spent on advertising, printing copies and illustrations. The author just converts the WN into a more streamlined version and boom it's done. And no, it's far less than 25%. If they adapt the full WN, there should be 80+ volumes by the time it's over.
Yes it is quite popular this year, but you don't need to be that popular to keep going. Some labels will let you sell 1k~ per volume and still let you publish.
It was her that got him so fit in the first place.
How does Satella have such goddamn enormous power despite the fact she apparently can't ressurect herself? I mean, fuck.
Couldn't she just make the heads of everybody who opposes her cultists head explode? She seems nigh omnipotent.
You should see what the author plans for this series. The LN is only up to vol 9-10 as the ending for arc 3. But the WN is all the way up to arc 6 with him planning to end the series in arc 10-15.
>arc 6 is supposedly around the halfway point
>each arc is getting longer than the last
>there's supposed to be 15 arcs
How is this gonna work? A ton of short ones in a row like the first two? Or did someone fuck up interpreting what the author meant? Maybe he meant that he has half the story written so far, meaning it's not released yet.
How so? The sage's disciple recognizes Subaru as her teacher, speaks like him, and even does Subaru's poses while talking.
Subaru in turn appears to have some deep connection with Satella, despite the fact they've never met before at this point. Which alone implies some weird time shenanigans even if the 400 year old sage disciple that takes after Subaru didn't.

there aren't many of those since elevens prefer happy Rem
He said the series is 45% done by arc 6. But he also stated that Emilia will be a heroine for 6 more arcs. Thus the range goes to 10-15 arcs.
He already stated that the ending was decided after arc 3. He even has the plot laid out and the material for it as well.
He only gives a fuck about Emilia, it was pretty clear when Puck saw coma Rem, he said "If this kid suffered for Emilia, then its a good cause", which caused Subaru to punch him.
>1. *,757,412 Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
She looks happy enough in this one.
Most nips probably got turned off by how despair-filled it went. But again, you don't need Konosuba levels of popularity to stick around. There are some series that sell under 1k per volume that have been going since the last century.
not posting the recent one 30/5 - 26/6
How does Beatrice suffer Puck to the point that she likes him than?
Why does Puck give a shit about Emilia's feelings if all he wants is for Emilia to destroy the world or some shit? Reviving Puck sounds like a serious bad idea now, as he's a miserable character apparently working for a nefarious end.
Sales aren't always indicative of popularity though. I'd be more interested in the TV ratings and viewership in Japan for the series. At the very least the series seems to be ridiculously popular on Twitter and Pixiv.
Satella can literally explode the heads of people who find out about Subaru's curse. She's nigh omnipresent and omnipotent I'd say. Reinhard is not the former at least, even if he might be the latter.
>no one buys it
>they eventually cancel translation for it
>but it's still licensed so fan translations never
>never gets translated
Jew Press is scum but a few bucks every few months for a read isn't bad.
>He probably does it because he know someone will kill him.
Bullshit, from what I've read Puck literally gives no fucks about anybody but Emilia, if he actually gives a fuck for Emilia beyond whatever ends he can put her to. If Puck wanted to destroy the world it's because he wants everybody to die.
Yea and after Emilia is dead, Puck doesn't give a fuck anymore, he just want everything to end. Its also part of the implication that Puck might = Subaru, because thats exactly what Subaru would do.

>her face when she realises you're a footfag
If Subaru recorded his condition in some unobtrusive way in some medium, warning the readers to not imply to him they knew his condition and to not overtly disturb the medium where this information was recorded.
Do you think that anybody who came across that medium would remain unscathed upon digesting the information it contained without Subaru's awareness?
This shounen comes up and confesses to you, how do you respond, /a/?
Oh anon, please don't hype me up. I'm getting giddy at the thoughts that might possibly entertain.
How is it missinformation? The other anon and I are posting culmulative sales for series in a particular time period. We are comparing apples with apples, you are butting in with something else.
Satella obviously has love issues, I mean, she is the witch of envy. That she still harbors such love for Subaru over such an expanse of time implies it was very much unrequited and that she's obsessing over it.
Something has to break Emelia.
Can we agree that Crusche is the only one set to rule?
A country free to trade with each other and FREE to decide their own fate and the worth of the work of each others is far superior to a rule set forth by a dictator or democratic ruler.
I have my heart to only one color. The color of PURPLE!
Because it brings something unique to the table of a kind I have not seen in years. Tragedy done right.
What I actually like about this twist is that, if it comes to pass, it was actually heavily foreshadowed by Emilia in the first episode when Subaru still didn't know her name.
Rem's even got detect evil, a hatred for heretics, and a penchant for smiting them wherever they come up.
No one said she was invincible, but she managed to take out quite a lot of them. It's not her fault that she couldn't solo an Archbishop.
Someone who hasn't been spoiled yet? You should probably get out while you still can.
Oh man, you are in for a fucking RIDE
>Author pulls a Date A Live stunt, making Emilia like Tohka and Dark Tohka
>Satella being her true form, she needs a kiss from Chevrolet to be saved and go back to her senses as well as kill Satella
This is an acceptable tier list
Anon, there is so much foreshadowing that pic related will happen.
It's not going to happen I think, the overarching theme is tragedy.
I think her love for Subaru will remain unrequited and that they'll be caught in a miserable loop together while the rest of the world proceeds without them.
>Most girls are either married or have lovers
You can do better than that anon.
foreshadowing in series where nobody (important) has yet died for so long in the original WN and LN that full of murder and fighting. That's too farfetched to even be a possibility.
Cast your vote on this important poll
The only ones I see in Subaru's "harem" are Emilia and Rem and maybe Patrasche if Subaru is into that, Beatrice and Petra are more like daughters to him and Ram would rather not get in the way of her cute sister
It still pisses me off that Subaru confesses a bullshit love for Emilia to help emotionally stabilize her. Like that's not going to bite him in the ass when she finds out he was lying, again. That Rem is his real waifu.
>Wilhelm not on top.
The series pretends it is a harem by introducing a lot of cute girls but then has them all paired off or otherwise remain firmly unromanceable, while the protagonist himself is only involved in a couple well determined one-sided/tragic relationships.
It's part of how re:zero plays with isekai tropes. Women don't want Subaru's dick automatically (quite the contrary), and romantic feelings have strong repercussions in the narrative.
As much as I wish it were so, I won't believe it until I see it properly confirmed.
I actually feel kind of bad for Ram, she relies on the clown marquis to basically spoon feed her mana ever since she lost her horn. Right?
Isn't the marquis later killed when he becomes an enemy of Subaru and co?
Yeah, Subaru is a filthy NEET who crushed hard on a really pretty really nice girl that saved his life.
And then gets into a lot of shit because he fails to realize that a) she's not perfect and b) she won't understand why he's crushing so hard on her, to the point that it creeps her out.
>complain about characterization
>imply the writing is bad
A wild Crusch loli has just jumped out ready to stab your shit! Quick! What do you do to prevent this?
We got an entire AU where they had kids. I think it's pretty implicit they love each other.
I think it's supposed to be an integral part of Emilia's tragedy too, her love will be forever unreturned and it will break her.
See that would be pretty obvious. I doubt some random guy with no name or land and is a butler can marry the Queen - assuming she does. There is zero chance of that happening unless he becomes a knight? I dunno. I doubt it he is pretty useless all things considered.
But I agree with that statement regarding him just idolizing her. She is the first and only person in a strange new land to be nice to him and help him and he clings onto that. But once he starts using his fucking head he will realize she is far ahead of him and he will never be able to catch Emilia. Rem is far more suitable for him for the very reasons I wrote above^.
But we all know that anime/manga fucking destroy logic with a bomb. Somehow he will be deemed worthy of standing next to Emilia. It will happen despite my feelings.
>crusch on top
Some good taste right here, I guess its just 4chan getitng bootyblasted because of her this episode
Fourier Lugnica was the heir to the throne. He was in love with Crusche and died along with the royal family from the 'coincidental' illness. Ferris deeply cared about him and his death caused him to create a complex towards weaklings and those who lack the will to live from the bottom of his heart. He wanted him to continue living. And Fourier could have had a bright future ahead of him. Crusche couldn't return his love in the end and he perished. Very tragic for a side-main character.
He's just joking around anon.
Beatrice and Subaru's contract is more a father/daughter one. Since both are compatible with each other they have a very loose contract.
As I said, I'll believe it if I see it. Right now it feels like you're just projecting your own feelings onto the story.
>the route where subaru becomes king and gets a harem made of all the king candidates, rem and other characters
>rem is the only one who is pregnant
Why is rem so best?
>But once he starts using his fucking head he will realize she is far ahead of him and he will never be able to catch Emilia. Rem is far more suitable for him for the very reasons I wrote above^.
No, it's not that. Sure, Emilia is above him in the world's social hieriarchy if she became queen, but the point of their relationship is that Subaru fell in love with an idealized Emilia, not the real person, clinging to it to keep himself afloat after all the bullshit he goes through.
Once he has that conflict with Emilia precisely because they can't come to terms over his behavior, and with Rem providing him with support instead, he gains a measure of self-awareness about his feelings and motivations.
Emilia later falls for him for his deeds, but at that point he's already gotten past his infatuation and has other things to worry about (Rem).
He lived a happy life nonetheless. He was surrounded by loved ones. The funny, sad, and happy days he lived were enough for him to accept death.
What say you /a/non? Will you join the Crusch Reich?
I think he breaks it permanently and loses the ability to ever use magic again without the help of a medium like Beatrice. Even that is gimped though as Subaru doesn't have any technique.
Oooooh that makes more sense. Thanks for the clarification. Now I am at peace!
Why is Beako the best daughteru /a/?
Of course because even there are even more than 5 that confirmed love him you need to resort having considered males as harem eventhough harem only considers woman as its requirement. Eventhough 3 already adequate enough you need to resort your self imagined gay fanfic terms on animanga terms.
>Implying every remfag hasn't braced for impact yet
Most of them have been in pain for 3 years now.
He kinda has 2 techniques he uses with Beatrice though they're pretty weak
>Absolute Defense Magic
Stops time and space around Subaru, but he can't move. Similar to the Authority of Greed but doesn't have the same risk
>Absolute Negation Magic
Several ten meters long, with Subaru and Beatrice in the center, negates effects mana within it, good against mages, bad against non mages
That would be the anime-only fags though.
Which is weird when you think about it, because Remfags were in the minority before episode 11. With exception to the moonreaders who were trying to sell Rem as best girl back then.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Its gonna hurt.
>Jackie Chan Subaru
Now that's a meme I haven't seen in a looong time
Neither can you. But I can assure you that their relationship is more of a father/daughter shtick based on what I read from the WN.
He even treats her like he would treat Rigel in the AU.
I kind of find it irritating how his talent is context sensitive. He holds his own against a girl with the blessing of wind, but he's suddenly an absolute chump otherwise.
In the LN, does Subaru ever become talented enough to say, hold his own against a knight or two?
What do you think would happen if he had a table or ladder wherever he fought? Because he seems to have a certain mastery with them
I wonder if this girl will be able to win Gaaf's heart, knowing Ram is being queerclowned.
>Madman Subaru taking on Betelgeuse and the White Whale with just a table
Terry Pratchett wrote 5 books with side projects in like two years while he was dying of Alzheimer's so maybe a healthier guy can pull something out faster, it's all about that dedication.
As far as i know there is no harem route.
Only the marry Rem and live as average person .
And then there is the short chs where we are told what happens after Subaru dies in each loop
more like a simulation of what could have happened if he did not loop.
Obviously I was implying that.
You don't need to be blood related to become a daughteru. I even stated Beatrice treats him like a father-figure. Never have I said Subaru is her actual father.
>As far as i know there is no harem route.
There's a gag chapter which was up for a short bit. Someone posted a link to it on some archive.
Emilia is not Satella.
First of all, Satella was sealed in her shrine. Anyway, the most definite piece of evidence is when Echidna tells Satella that she (Satella) "stays in her castle, and even if she is able to meet him once in a while she becomes frightened and makes him forget it". If Satella=Emilia this statement wouldn't make sense since he's with Emilia almost all the time and retains his memory of her. Also, the Witch of Envy is insane, and Emilia is normal.
If you don't want to believe it then that's fine, but that doesn't change the fact that they're separate people.
Been a long time fan of the series but I can assure you there is a harem gag chapter.
He uploaded it on april fools day and shortly took it down the day after. As he felt like it was tainting his chapter list, the author absolutely hates harems.
a tiger and a cat pairing
What could go wrong?
Literally no concrete evidence either way. Satella can control time to a degree, so it could be implied she is future Emilia. Or Emilia is descended from Satella. Or Emilia is a vessel for Satella to take over much like Roswaal is looking for.
Unless you can give solid, cited evidence for every single case stated above, your statement,
>Emilia is not Satella.
is objectively false.
Ley Batenkaitos (Gourmet)-Body like a teenager and has scars, bites, whip markings. Hates merchants.
Louis Arneb (Satiation)-muscular and talks like a woman (what).
Roy Alphard (Bizarre Eating)-Young and has a mischievous look.
They all usually don't care for what they eat as long as it depends who they eat with (what).
Are all these Bishops weird?
That's probably what Roswaal told the guy that had her current clown body when she stole it from him as well.
try amazon :^)
