Is this show the definition of forced drama?
Pretty much all the problems could be solved if he could tell about his ability, but he is not allowed to because of reasons.
Then Subaru keeps acting like a retard making everything worse.
>Pretty much all the problems could be solved if he could tell about his ability, but he is not allowed to because of reasons
The reasons for his not being able to tell people about his ability are described in the story. Unless forced just means "the author wrote it that way" in which case every single piece of fiction ever has forced drama.
>because of reasons
Get fucking oFF.. Retard like you are killing the threads of Re:zero. 3 fucking thread of the same autist faggots shit.
>Muh bad writting
>I can't selfinsert
it's not forced because the MC never actually nanages to make anything happen. in fact he is trying to force drama himself and each of those women is flatly rejecting his drama.
you fuckin tard.
no one said you have to watch it, by the way.
>it's popular though
so what? watch something else. i will never understand people who shit on something but still keep fucking going with it. if you don't like the taste then fucking stop consuming it.
it's not complicated
The main character is self-absorbed and stupid. The author is very good at writing bad people doing bad things.
Contrary to popular belief, selfish people who try to use and manipulate others are rarely successful or capable. The vast majority fail in ugly ways.
Subaru is an ugly person, and most people don't like seeing him be ugly because he reminds them of themselves.
He's an unrealistic character. The writer couldn't accurately portray an unintelligent character so he made Subaru unable to realize painfully obvious things.
I enjoy the anime though. I mean I know it's LN adaptation so my expectations aren't "the better be the next evangelion or lotgh."
The irony is, the people who criticize this show are the ones who are called out for simply wanting to "self insert" but can't because of Subaru's uglyness.
The anime has pandering and misery porn written all over it.
No seriously. It doesn't take a genius to realize you have a power to time reset after dying- especially since you maintain the memories of the previous timeline and you suddenly teleport.
Instead of writing actually manipulative and intelligent characters and have Subaru constantly fall in their trap, we have this this garbage.
People want to self-insert into good people devoid of negative traits. People who see negative traits reflected in a main character cannot self-insert.
If you are implying that the people who criticize the story because they are not like Subaru because they cannot relate to his failures, then what you are telling me is that all of those people have never failed... ever.
Everyone fails. People who do not recognize failure are people you should never listen to. They are incapable of learning from their own mistakes and are very ugly people... Exactly like Subaru.
Hahaha you have no idea what you are talking about.
He has NO proof that he will be able to die an unlimited number of times, he has no idea if it's a set number or anything. He has to live like every life is his last one.
No you misunderstood.
when you said
>Subaru is an ugly person, and most people don't like seeing him be ugly because he reminds them of themselves.
I just replied by saying that the people who criticize this show are dismissed as those who can't self insert as the main character because he is too ugly.
People are not wired to experience death more than once. Just look at atheists in today's world. They deny the existence of everything they cannot see as if they know nothing beyond their small point of view exists.
This is a common mental trait. People will think that they are hallucinating, dreaming, have deja-vu, or some other 'explanation' to deny the possibility of repeating time loops of any sort.
Subaru is simply a normal person plunged into extraordinary circumstance, thinking he has a handle on a situation he does NOT have a handle on.
This is called arrogance. Pride that makes an individual assume they know everything, and thus, know very little.
It was actually a pretty accurate representation of how long it should take a person to find out. He just got seemingly transported to a fantasy world for fucks sake. The probability of having a strong looping dream is infinitely more likely than that.
>The author is very good at writing bad people doing bad things.
In the new episode Subaru kept rambling and forcing himself on Emilia instead of mentioning the witch cult.
I don't see how that was well written.
>he didn't want her to think that he was with the witch cult like Crusch did
He was clearly attacked and the carriage had blood some knives from the witch cult.
It made no sense that he didn't mention it.
out of character in what fucking way? he was never actually happy, every time he was confident and smiling it was a front, characters pointed this out all the fucking time. emilia is dense as fuck and even she said his pretend-confidence was easy to see through.
Then why do they complain that Subaru is ugly if they do not want to self-insert? If anything, having a main character be ugly and end up reaping the effects of his own pride and hubris is something very different and difficult to get correct. The author of this story is clearly aware of Subaru's ugliness. LN readers say that Subaru does eventually learn, but only after it is too late, leaving him to live with the consequences of his own actions.
Personally, I cannot self-insert because I am aware of my flawed nature and do not expect people to know everything that I know. However, I find there to be great value in a fatally flawed main character.
People who criticize the story, calling Subaru stupid and a poorly made character, and then comparing his actions to their own personal intelligence are projecting. Essentially, attempting an incompatible self-insertion.
Now, if they were criticizing plot points and questioning deeper aspects of the story beyond the premise, then sure. However, those are usually people who aren't complaining about how bad the story is, but rather analyzing and trying to gain context of.
Why are you guys replying to obvious bait. This always happens after every episode of the show.
What I like about Re:Zero is how you can easily weed out those who can't get context, doesn't "watch" what they are watching, and those who are dumb to understand what is going on even though it is fully presented in the show.
People seem to forget what happened in the old episodes.
>In the new episode Subaru kept rambling and forcing himself on Emilia instead of mentioning the witch cult. I don't see how that was well written.
Subaru is an idiot who does not trust anyone to understand the larger situation and demands they blindly trust him without explanation.
THAT is a kind of person I meet every day.
>It made no sense that he didn't mention it
Yeah... because Subaru isn't meant to make sense. He is meant to show the consequences of pride getting in the way of reason.
The writing stinks of plot convenience all the time, but since it stacks the odds against the MC and not in his favor like in a Gary Stu anime, it's suddenly genius ("deep", "the anti-SAO"...).
It feels like the author is the real witch, he dictates the rules and directs the characters however he want (even if it means removing their brain cells). That's obvious, he's the author, but the whole thing is horribly inorganic.
Not only is the drama pretensions and forced but just about over conflict is so painfully artificial with the excuse of "muh Magic"
Oh, you want to tell everyone that you can respawn? Nope magic evil hands out the ass.
There's actually a good reason why she won't let him talk. If people figured out that someone cursed by her could time loop based on objectives set by her, they'd seal him away for eternity.
Why are the knives no big deal when the cult seems to leave them everywhere?
They leave them behind like fucking plastic bottles.
Shouldn't they be recognizable by now?
i don't understand what your comment has to do with my comment. i think you just wanted an excuse to post that retarded new ""insult"" you came up with
>heh they both start with "re" heh this is gonna be so epic heh everyone will think im cool
Stop it with that self-insert shit, it's never a thing except when the character is written as a direct avatar like in videogames.
And you're supposed to be projecting when you're writing and reading fiction. Writers use their experiences and feelings, readers project their own experiences and feelings over the story and characters. It's usually a bad sign when it doesn't happen.
This is definitely the kind of Anime you need to watch SLOWLY and PAY ATTENTION! Because so much world building happens in the dialogue, if you watch it enough. It's very subtle, and very very well-done! So far I've watched each episode twice... more times for the early ones, which were really filled with interesting information!! It's like Game of Thrones tier, it's crazy!
>All these retards getting baited and not spamming reports.
All of you deserve these threads just for not being able to avoid it and report.
Just watched the episode.
From what I've read. It's actually the same as the LN. The only difference is how Beatrice acted. Word said are actually the same, how the events played are also the same.
Also on how the episode ended, it's actually the same as Episode 7. I don't know why people are so mad about that.
I'm pretty sure that Ep18 won't have any OP and ED as the author himself stated that Ep18 has been the most worked on episode by White Fox to date.
In short, people are complaining over nothing. People are forming opinions over fake spoilers. Typical /a/.
Point is nothing in your comment makes sense.
You think that by have big titty girl overreacting and kicking cuck in the face to which he twirls on the ground and spits blood everywhere just to be yelled at about pride somehow avoids creating drama.
Fuck off back to /reddit/
Subaru throws hissyfits, that isn't "forced drama", that is flaws, of his character
stop bringing up reddit because you don't know how to have a fucking argument without needing to phrase every statement like it's the last word faggot.
There's nothing wrong with magic in fantasy worlds, you see a good fantasy world would keep in reasonable.
In this shit fest it can literally do whatever the crack head writer wishes to artificially extend the plot, it's painful to watch desu.
I just fucking hate how he's so damn obsessive over emilia like fuck give her some room.
He acts like he has to spend every second of his life watching her.
So the way to convince Emilia to go along with your plan is dragging her around and threatening her like a potential rapist.
It seems like a few more deaths are needed before the MC grows up. You guys will keep pointing to how distressed the MC is, but after 16 episodes I can not honestly believe the MC doesn't learn acting like a retard won't convince people to be your friend. I could forgive up to ep 15, but this episode is merely forced drama in order to worsen the outcome of this loop and heighten the payback for the final successful loop.
The show would more dramatically improve with an MC that would, for instance, try to discover who still remember Rem (I kept wondering that the whole time) and why they forget Rem (gotta be the white whale as this also happened to the other merchant).
But all we got is a proven retard. Even Higurashi with a similar plot isn't this bad. What's the point of having mysteries when the MC lacks thinking skills and everything boils down to "he's suffering from great distress so he can't think clearly"?
Well yeah. It is a japanese light novel.
Dude's died I don't know how many fucking times and during all of those times he's been alive he's never ever ever decided to sit down and train and do random shit since he's effectively immortal?
In this last ep?
Forced as fuck. Running like a faggot when he fucking knows he can die and start over. That he can save her and put it all right.
He's shown talent at fighting, and could theoretically spend a lifetime learning how to sword fight from that sword master, and his shadow powers can be honed and mastered in that time as well. He can even learn other skills and more about the world and all of the people in it.
Fucks sake, I would have loved to see this guy do more and more outrageous shit in that world and have it work out because he's done things that gave him insight into the minds of these people and world.
He's a goddamned ninja/assassin with martial arts talent and he's being trained by a sword master. Dude should be running around doing cray shit and getting away with even more cray shit.
BUT we're instead treated to him acting like a little bitch and popping off like a weak toothless pup in more and more contrived moments of drama.
He's seen magic in that world, he's a straight up otaku. He realizes what's going on after the third time.
This is bullshit.
If he simply thought he could see alternate timelines through really realistic dreams then..that actually would be more interesting.
If he only found out that he's been dying and that every death has been slowly corrupting him and making him like beetlegeuse, the man who's been torturing him and doing all of these negative things?
The mind break and anguish and fear of death would have hit him and the readers like a brick.
That would have been a better "he has a full mental breakdown" worthy reason.
You're right, and in stories people like they desperately want someone they can empathize with or even like.
But when the MC is the source of all of the negative drama and does nothing but be a complete idiot. It's kind of hard to watch.
You honestly have to disengage and tell the audience "it's okay to hate this guy". I mean..it's sort of...something that doesn't pop up in much media. A protag who's created to or becomes someone who's detestable and unlikeable.
He's just...doesn't actually do anything to warrant the care of the other characters beyond a certain point.
They for some unfathomable reason put up with him. And the blue haired ogre girl has for some reason fallen horn over heels for him.
It would make sense if these people who've all known him for not even a few weeks decided to kick his ass to the curb, broke off their relationship with him or something, but...he's just...accepted unconditionally no matter how crazy as fuck he's acting. He's not someone they've known for years or close family. He's literally a fucking stranger.
I'm pretty sure his skills improved after each death when he was learning how to tend the house, example being that he went from cutting his hands up while cutting fruit to doing it really well.
His physical progress yes, but not his mental progress.
He'd still be able to use tips and tricks to overcome his physical weakness when it comes to sword skills and magic. Like keeping a pocket full of those fruit that brings back his mana, or something like that.
He'd still have the skills of a sword/knife fighter but just lack the physical training necessary to capitalize on it. But that would be part of the drama.
How would he be able to hold his own against the witches and stabilize the time line so he wouldn't loop backwards again and become even more of a demon. What thing could he do to make things fall into place so that everything works out.
Who can he save and who would he have to sacrifice?
That is drama I would have loved to see.
What was Priscilla bent out of shape about?
The jew loli called him pathetic for being incompetent and worthless.
The dictator with the cat dick called him for pathetic for being so self righteous about personal problems.
But what was the lucky bitch's problem?
Forum and board discussions help too in-between each episode. From little missed nuances that the watcher could have not noticed, to actual skipped content from source material that can be explained.
Really, the only negative are the cliffhangers that drive you mad; otherwise this show is better watched without marathoning it.
>Run away from the bad guys screaming "I don't want to die"
dying doesn't seem to be a pleasant experience. Plus the mental health of the guy is clearly deteriorated from repeated (dying) trauma
Yeah, but there's a big problem
Part of getting strong and better at things is the mind cutting out the useless movements associated with doing something. You get better at backflips because you're more experienced and physically strong enough to do it.
BUT he might mentally be able to capitalize on all of these new skills HOWEVER the physical training and strengthening of his body will always be reset to zero.
He can be a complete sword master and know all of the high level super skills. Problem? He can't fully capitalize on them because he's for all intents and pourposes a physical novice.
His thing would have been to overcome that weakness with better skill.
His magical ability? I have no idea. They have said that his magical gate is too weak and untrained. So it can be assumed to be a physical thing. HOWEVER if it's tied to his mind then his magic skills can become truly formidable and fully perfected if he tries and keeps his mana beans.
>Why doesn't keep dying and use his time doing the impossible?
He's convinced that he's a level 1 hero and that he has to level up!
He should have probably fell into complete delusion after the 3rd or 4th death.
He'd simply run around learning all about the world and towns and history and magic and sword fighting.
Part of the drama could be the other characters noticing how he knows more about the world then he let on or knows more about people/the world then they do.
Go full groundhog day with it but with a twist.
>stronger than Reinhardt
Oh boy, someone post the copypasta.
We've been over this shit a million times
>He doesn't know if his next death may be his last
>Dying is scary, painful, traumatic, etc. and you have a very strong natural instinct to avoid it that is hard to overcome

>Every time he dies the witch stench increases, which has side effects such as drawing monsters to his location (including the white whale) which is very bad
>Too much stench can hypothetically lead to bad ends from this, meaning that infinite loops may not work
Thats not entirely thr case. Subaru is shown to be physically fit.
With the right neural pathways he can perform the same techniques if his muscles can handle it.
Swinging a sword isnt that hard.
In any case it doesnt matter because this is all hypotheticals. The reality is that everyone else is so vastly ahead of him, that he'd have to spend years training just to reach the level of a royal knight.
Killing yourself each week for years isnt practical or healthy.
Subaru is basically the Ancient Mariner.
The Ancient Mariner killed the albatross and refused to admit what he did was wrong until everyone around him had turned on him, and then died. Even in his solitude, he still refused to submit until in the depths of despair he underwent revelation, and was finally freed.
Eventually, I hope, Subaru will stop running in circles with this shit and will gain true resolve to fix the problem. My only fear is when the revelation happens everyone will start saying this is the best anime since Madoka (it's not, the pacing is painful).
Every episode I hate Subaru a little bit more. Well, both him and Emillia are the only two characters I hate in this series. The rest of the characters in this series a are great.
>you don't have to watch it
>therefore, the fact that it's bad is irrelevant
/a/ blowing things out of proportion as usual.
Subaru's constant, confrontational overreaction to everything is getting really grating. He went from spending most of every episode being an obnoxious, pompous, overblown ass to being a melodramatic ponce shouting incessantly.
He's goddamn insufferable
one thing i don't get is why he never tried to experiment with it a little bit more than nothing.
what if the power has a limit and when it ends he gets thrown back to his world/reality?
My real problem is why the fucking maids have so much push in the series.
>What did Emilia do?
Emilia does jack fucking shit except hypocritically condescend to the one jackass who has saved her life twice. She hasn't done a single damn thing the entire anime. She is so stupid she makes Subaru look normal. Her only redeeming feature is her coat with the cute pointed ears.
>let's make a contract with a spirit so as to be slightly less useless, but on the flipside anyone powerful enough can still fuck us up after which said spirit will suddenly get superpowered and massacre people we're supposedly working to protect
I did some stupid shit at 14, but nothing that stupid.
That's actually the most understandable and acceptable criticism of the anime I've seen yet. I might as well add that I grew slightly tired of the drama with yesterday's episode, though it makes for interesting situations and development.
>He went from spending most of every episode being an obnoxious, pompous, overblown ass to being a melodramatic ponce shouting incessantly.
Woah, it's almost as if he is losing it after going through so much shit.
>>He doesn't know if his next death may be his last
He's committed suicide before. That no longer has any weight.
>>Dying is scary, painful, traumatic, etc. and you have a very strong natural instinct to avoid it that is hard to overcome
>>He cannot gain muscle or train his weak and damaged gate across loops, he's limited to 1 spell even when healed, he can only learn how to do these things
The thing about muscle, I know about, but you can capitalize on what muscle you have and use better technique. He's already been shown to be in good physical condition. All that's missing is the knowledge and balls to capitalize on it.
He can learn how to instantly repair it or gain a boon from beatrice or the ice squirrel(forgot the name of emilia's familiar creature) and begin to learn some magical skills.
>>He only has a few days before having to kill himself otherwise he may risk overwriting the loop
Yeah I know, and in that time he can learn new things.
>>He has no control over how the loops work
He has control over when a new loop starts and he knows where it starts. He also knows that certain conditions have to be met to break out of one. That's more then enough.
She exists just to be pussy for Subaru to chase, but her entire character is basically to have as little character as possible so she doesn't alienate the tastes of any viewer. She just "the heroine" and every action she takes, every step she makes, every word that comes out of her mouth is just a plot device so the author has an excuse to make Subaru do something.
Whenever she;s on screen the pace of an episode just grinds down to a crawl because it has to take time for Subaru to say something long-winded to her, her to respond with something vacuous and inconsequential and have him overreact to it.
It's tedious dealing with such an absolute non-character that still manages to be a vacuum sucking up screentime and focus constantly.
>Whenever she;s on screen the pace of an episode just grinds down to a crawl because it has to take time for Subaru to say something long-winded to her, her to respond with something vacuous and inconsequential and have him overreact to it.
This reminds me of another LN heroine but for the life of me I can't remember her name.
the thing is, you don't go insane from seeing your loved ones dying 3 or 4 times, not enough to scream at people because things are not going your way.
if you told me he killed himself to try to save them countless times, then yes, but the dude can't even do that because >it might me my last time
Actually Subaru will be completely delusional and playing up his knight thing, while everyone else around him will simply be acting normally.
The witches coven revealing everything and telling him that he's already becoming like beetlegeuse because he's partially insane and has the witches 'love' on him?
Full on broken heart and lost mind level stuff.
And the time travel stuff is paramount. It's needed. He uses it to get happy endings for everyone and when he doesn't get it he loses it a bit more.
>>Ignoring the world and training means letting the people he cares about die over and over again
They will die whether he trains or not. That's the fucking problem. Can he sit there and be weak with the only thing going for him is the ability to fucking die like a bitch or will he train.
>>Training for even years likely won't push him past Rem in terms of ability and Rem keeps dying
Rem is a fucking demon, a powerful one.
He only has to become as powerful as he can be and capitalize on his own strengths. Something that could make him fairly broken.
>>Implying he will be the same person, or even be remotely sane after letting them die and committing suicide countless times
He's got not fucking choice but to change. He's already comitted suicide and already lost his goddamned mind.
He has two choices.
Metaphorically kill the man he was and become someone else, or continue to sit helplessly by and watch the people he's come to love deeply die and die for him.
>>Every time he dies the witch stench increases, which has side effects such as drawing monsters to his location (including the white whale) which is very bad
The witches will come for him regardless of his stench. And his skill with a weapon and magical ability and other knowledge will help him survive.
>>Too much stench can hypothetically lead to bad ends from this, meaning that infinite loops may not work
Yeah the thing with the whale. BUT the thing with the whale wouldn't have happened if he wasn't such a bitch.
>Actually Subaru will be completely delusional and playing up his knight thing, while everyone else around him will simply be acting normally.
But that doesn't make sense since he has nothing to protect in that case. He woyld just be a loner.
I wanna smother my face into those pantyhosed loli thighs.
On-topic, she's had more development in 2 minutes than most side chars until now. She was the highlight of thw episode.
Nope. When all's said and done he isn't much better than Kirito in terms of complexity or lack thereof. The stuff he goes through just happens to be creative, not the character himself.
There was an entire loop of just that in arc 2. He sat around and did nothing to try and avoid death because he was going past his former limit of deaths (and the idea that he may only have 3 lives like a game or something). In the end he hesitantly manages to put his faith in his ability by killing himself after everything was fucked up, but he still hasn't reached a point where he gives no fucks about dying.
He doesn't know what the limits are, and isn't prepared to test it and find out because hitting that limit means dying for real.
He'll start decapitating himself soon enough though
See above for first two
Yes he can train but he isn't willing to let people die and suffer while he does it. If he was in a more peaceful situation and not worrying about everyone dying, he might consider training a bit more. Also both of those characters aren't particularly accessible to him right now.
>Yeah I know, and in that time he can learn new things.
Once again, he'll be letting everyone in the world he cares about die before he kills himself while he studies and trains. There will be a serious toll on his psyche from that in one way or another. If you're wondering why he isn't going full Groundhog Day, it's because Bill Murray and everyone in the town didn't die horribly every night.
>He has control over when a new loop starts and he knows where it starts
Absolutely false with no evidence to back it up. If he had control he could have set it back before he made an ass of himself this arc.
We sure as hell know he has no control after the end of the current one as well
I picked it up on a whim and stuck with the 1st cours because the first 3 or so episodes were alright, but it got worse the deeper in I went and now I come out of each weak's episode bitter that I sat through it and even more bitter than some people actually enjoyed it.
>People keep suggesting training
Am I missing something or is that simply completely retarded? Subaru is an average human being in a fantasy land filled with NOT-humans, it would be like expecting a slice of life character thrown in the world of Dragonball to train with Goku.
>bitter than some people actually enjoyed it.
In a world where insanely powerful magical races exist, training can only get him so far. Even Rem dies to a group of generic cultists and he can't even get on her level.
Subaru can't just grind and muscle his way out of everything. He's surrounded by people much stronger than he will ever be, and manipulating them is a faster solution that will probably be better in the long term since he can acquire allies.
>The witches will come for him regardless of his stench. And his skill with a weapon and magical ability and other knowledge will help him survive.
If the stench got so bad that monsters came to his location from miles around, he would become a walking natural disaster. Monsters could kill everyone between them and him, and massive legendary creatures like the white whale and other spoilers will show up as well. If he became a danger to society, he could become trapped in an infinite loop where Reinhard kills him forever.
>Yeah the thing with the whale. BUT the thing with the whale wouldn't have happened if he wasn't such a bitch.
The whale is attracted to the witch's scent and the only way to get to the mansion without everyone dying is to go past the whale
The rest of the earlier points come down to personality and such and his lack of eagerness to go down that path.
Somebody tell me just how bad Subaru gets, as I can't watch this is Subaru keeps making things worse and worse, hell, I was actually hesitant to betray others in VLR. That shit gets to me hard.
I'm not even sure if people are shitposting anymore or if they legit don't understand whats going on.
At its simplest Subaru is overcompensating for his lack of a ability by being overly prideful to protect his ego. Thus he projects his failings on everyone around him. Therefore instead of admitting he was wrong he sets out to prove that he was right all along. He doesn't even realize he made a mistake because his pride can't accept that fact.
Well not until suffering.
>At its simplest Subaru is overcompensating for his lack of a ability by being overly prideful to protect his ego. Thus he projects his failings on everyone around him.

That's fine but still doesn't amount to much in terms of character traits.
>even more bitter than some people actually enjoyed it.
What bothers me is that Subaru never tried other means of explaining his ability such as writing or hidden messages, sure maybe the cure thingy can tell but he doesn't know that, he only attempts to yell it at Emilia.
He would still think he's the knight who's protecting the princess. Emilia's little shpiel about the version of her that he has in her head being awesome?
Would make a lot more sense if he actually acted like that.
If he built her up into someone she wasn't and the one person he has to protect etc etc.
Just drop a few bombs that shows that he doesn't know her at all.
That he's been shamelessly using her too keep himself sane.
The moment when he realizes that he's never been her friend or even truly loved her and the loneliness? The deaths and suicides and suffering he's undergone and his "I'm protecting Emilia" as the one single good thing to come out of it? Priceless.
His gate is a physical aspect of him that limits him and needs to be healed. Even if he learns every spell he can, he's still going to have what's essentially the world's shittiest mana pool. A single spell completely physically exhausts him.
He needs to train it (probably vaguely similar to a muscle) or find some way to power it up and save that progress in a loop before he can really use magic efficiently.
He was able to fight some kind of ninja wolf bitch with a giant club and has magic powers and goes full groundhog day if he dies horribly.
I sort of expect him to capitalize on it. I mean, what supposed neet otaku wouldn't at some point completely disengage from everything that's happening around him and fall into a fantasy world.
He's already letting them fucking die.
Fucks sake 99% of the time he's being told he's weak as shit and can't do anything.
He even knows this shit.
Why in the shit wouldn't he train or capitalize on the time he has to learn new things and apply them.
The entire series is based around this. No I take it back, the entire series is based around him acting like a fucktard and doing completely retarded shit.
Why couldn't he just say that the cult is coming and the white whale attacked them?
This is EVA 3.0 or Valvrare levels of forced shit that could have been all avoided.
Imagine if 911 emergency calls existed there and you had to deal with Toyota trying to explain what's going on.
Then whats the point of doing anything?
He's too fucking stupid and pigheaded to manipulate anyone.
Apparently too weak to EVER be able to hold his own even against a drunken hobo with a limp because erreyone except him is super stronk,
And he has never shown a personality that would allow him to make friends. He's litterally got friends and alies because the plot demands it.
The stench will grow whether he wants it or fucking not. Would it grow because he let himself die or died like a retard or would it grow because he's trained really hard and then died in a magic and sword fight against a group of cultists while Rem escaped.
Him being a fucking bitch is what caused well over half his fucking deaths so far.
The hand thing isn't automatic, and neither is his savescum ability. The witch is watching him at all times and sends him back on a whim when he fucks up and dies.
She does the hands thing when she sees that he's trying to say something she doesn't want him to say. First time, she clenched his heart to spook him, every time since then she's just given him a little reminder to discourage him from spilling the beans. This time, he was determined to ignore a potential magic-induced heart attack to tell the truth because he was so desperate. Since spooking him wouldn't stop him, she just killed the person he was going to tell.
>caravan guy gets forgotten
>Rem gets forgotten
>he still doesn't pick it up
Like god damn this shit pissed me off about Toyota since ep 1. He misses the most fucking obvious clues.
Like Jesus it's not even that hard to understand.
>Imagine if 911 emergency calls existed there and you had to deal with Toyota trying to explain what's going on.
>"We need to get out of this building"
>"I'll drag all of you away even by force"
>"I'm not crazy, I'm..."
Que 9/11 screams and Satella driving the airplane
No, no it's not.
He's not actually protecting anyone or trying to protect anyone but himself.
Has he actually directly protected emillia outside of...once?
Even his thing in the audience chamber felt like it was something tacked on at the last second.
The thing with the maids completely ruins this. It's like the author realizes that he doesn't actually like emilia and is pushing everything he wanted for her onto rem.
He isn't deeply deluded from dying so many times and had a psychotic break where he sees himself as a knight protecting the fair princess and everyone's happiness and when he fails he just resets.
He's just this cunt that runs around getting killed a lot and popping off at everyone.
>He's already letting them fucking die.
Making an attempt to save them and failing is very different than just straight up not giving a fuck about the cult slaughtering them and sitting in the capital reading some books.
He's managed to clear things while barely hitting around 10 loops up to this point, which isn't bad at all compared to the probably thousands the people complaining about training would have before even getting past Elsa.
>Then whats the point of doing anything?
What is the point of anything in life?
He wants friends, love, etc. and he wants to protect them. These are his goals as a character. Coincidentally he has a shit personality and it actively hinders his attempts at acquiring the things that he wants.
It's no secret that he has some extremely major flaws, they're a plot point in the story.
Just say he's an fortune teller or his magic cellphone told him so or some shit. Anything but "just trust me lol"
It's one thing to see him try to make an excuse and fail but he doesn't even try.
Terrible example, Subaru simply making a terror threat would accomplish an evacuation.
Subaru simply has to write a letter saying ''We are coming to rek (you)
t. Witch cult led by Michael Keaton''
So are the knights and the mages and most everyone else that isn't a demigod or something.
He can learn what he can and capitalize on the knowledge that he can learn from his constant deaths.
I can see glimpses of the future!
A quick simple lie that can save him a lot of trouble.
Come on mate. You think Subaru would actually do this after what you just saw with Emilia.
And I know it's a terrible example because it actually happened. He says it to Emilia before killing her.
But anon no matter how you try to deny it.
This is the best animu of the last 2 seasons, literally nothing can get near its level+trigger /a/utists as much as this masterpiece in the making. Those who even try and begin to think otherwise probably have the shittiest taste ever known to man or are just deluding themselves. It is literally impossible to dislike this show and those who do probably need to consult a doctor.
>Making an attempt to save them and failing is very different than just straight up not giving a fuck about the cult slaughtering them and sitting in the capital reading some books.
You're right. But making an attempt and failing because you simply can't fight but acting like big shit and getting your shit slapped is dumb.
>He's managed to clear things while barely hitting around 10 loops up to this point, which isn't bad at all compared to the probably thousands the people complaining about training would have before even getting past Elsa.
He's barely done shit. I was hoping for more of the stuff where he'd break out of a time loop by doing something completely out of the ordinary and train a lot or gain new skills and become some tricky bastard and every week we'd see him get out of a new jam or into a new jam and have to clever asshole his way out of it.
But he doesn't. It's just bad shit happening and him acting like a twat.
>What is the point of anything in life?
>He wants friends, love, etc. and he wants to protect them. These are his goals as a character. Coincidentally he has a shit personality and it actively hinders his attempts at acquiring the things that he wants.
No, I mean if these violent people are so above him and training is useless and he has a shit personality so he can't use his knowledge to manipulate or learn how to change things on an interpersonal level, then what's the fucking point of the series.
To just watch this fucktard get his shit slapped over and over again?
To be honest, I'm not THAT much of a sadist. bruh. I can't completely disengage like that.
>It's no secret that he has some extremely major flaws, they're a plot point in the story.
They aren't a plot point.
They are a source of cheap drama.
Why doesn't Suzuki just address a letter to whoever he wants to kill in which he explains his ability, creating a death note?
Blame the writing on that one. Beako knows almost everything but doesn't want to be involved in the bloodshed. She just wants a peaceful life. She could have easily nuked the entire cult but chose to just remain neutral.
He doesn't display that.
He doesn't honestly believe that he's a level 1 knight whos' there to protect her and everything else is secondary because his numerous deaths have driven him partially insane.
He's just a cunt.
His entire thing with emilia has so far been a secondary thing in the story and is not a major thrust of his character. It's only an informed thing.
He burns a time loop to learn to read and write and learns magic in another. Its pretty apparent at this point that Subaru hates dying and will only use time he knows he has to spare to learn new skills. Right now he has no clue exactly how much time he needs to save Emilia and the villagers.
>wants a peaceful life
>so does nothing to stop those who will destroy that peaceful life
>doesn't want bloodshed
>so stands idle and allows preventable bloodshed to transpire
You can blame a lot on the writing, I think.
>Why should I believe it? Such ability doesn't exist, and you're an attentionwhoring idiot as you've proved duribg episode 13. If you're that desperate for attention, go hug a wall. Get thw fuck out you're wasting my time.
If the whale is a known threat and they have tried to stop it before, why dont they just send Reinhardt after it?
>inb4 muh first master swordsman was killed
If that shitty whale can kill Reinhardt, he is just a bitch and all those people saying how he is pretty much a god are just liars
Idk wtf is up with this show but it's getting ridiculous. I understand that he can't tell anyone about the curse do to the curses affect but fuck, he really does act like a fucking retarded douchbag. He doesn't use his brain and thinks he's always right or thinks he has the right to do whatever tf he wants even at the cost of others.
[Spoiler] When the white whale made Otto forget about the other merchants riding with them and then again made Otto forget about Rem and then Ram forgot about Rem, He should've fucking realized something was going on instead being so fucking retarded getting all furious at Ram. He should know damn well that crazy shit has been happening to him so he should quit being an idiot already.
I really dislike Subaru now and I see him as a true villain. He's a menace to himself and a menace to others. He's like a plague.
>You look at Person A's pantsu
>Person A has a gun
>Person A shoots whoever you tell about her pantsu
>You tell her about her own pantsu
Do you honestly think she would shoot herself
He knows that telling people about it will make monsters come. So he should know it's dangerous as fuck.
Let's take this RPG analogy even further.
So far our boy subaru is level 10.
He can learn level 100 sword techniques and magic techniques.
But since his stamina and mana pool are so low he can only use the higher level ones a few times and the magic ones once.
He can learn multiple skills because he has infinite time and skill growth potential HOWEVER his growth is gated behind a fairly complex QTE that can only be attempted once before you have to start the game over and lose hours of leveling progress.
The problem lies in that Subaru, unlike the RPG residents of Despair town, remains a normal human aside from the use of his debuff magic, he will never be capable of effortlessly wielding heavy weapons like Rem or displaying great physical feats.
Reinhard is in a league of his own far above Puck.
Satella is in a league of her own above Reinhard. Reinhards blessings are almost all utility, support, and defensive in nature. His attack is actually pretty weak for someone of his level, he just out levels everyone else by that much. His attack is also heavily reliant on factors he has no control over and his big finisher can only be used once in a while.
A fight between him and Satella would be an eternal draw, his attack can't beat Satellas defence and her attack doesn't have the variety it needs to get past all his immunities.
Exactly, you're definitely right. He's an arrogant insecure idiotic brat thinking he's even a Hero in the first place and thinking everything should go his way. That's why he's the real villain in my opinion.
Even though the show is pissing me off cause of Subaru, it has good artwork in my opinion. So on one hand I want to stop watching it cause the MC is shit but all the other characters are chill and the art is good.
I would agree if it was established that Subaru is clever or knows how to communicate well with others, but it's been established that he's awkward and kind of stupid. It makes sense that even after so many cycles, he can't figure out how to get around a geas or come up with a plausible explanation for his "precognition" like I don't know, precognition. Also how has he still not figured out that the white whale somehow removes the memory of anyone it kills? Once again, he's stupid.
Of course, I'm sure we all prefer Rem over Emilia. I could say she's the next least favorable character but she doesn't bother me as much as Subaru. She has her small likable qualities but I'd agree she's next in line to be annoying hopeless.
>how has he still not figured out that the white whale somehow removes the memory of anyone it kills
Same reason he couldn't figure out the nice lady who wants to buy the amulet was the same one who killed him and Emilia the first time around. Not like they had the same voice or anything.
But Subaru has a PERFECT bullshit explanation, he could say he gets visions or information thanks to the Witch, his stench is apparently clear proof of a connection so it should stand.
I wouldn't mind so much about his stupidity if it weren't for his overly aggressive arrogance. That's what pisses me off most. He's blindly arrogant and becomes very disrespectful to everyone.
I'm just starting out but I'm enjoying these Iseki animes.
Is there more manga/anime like this?
Also when does he get his act together? I'm on episode 3 and he seems a bit dim witted.
To be fair, I don't expect a fairly average Japanese high schooler to be able to handle revealing an assassination plot by himself while traumatized by dying several times and seeing horrible things happen to his loved ones.
Am more hardened person would probably say he's almost there. I mean he knows where to get transport and he knows he can make it in time. Now he just needs to practice shouting "The Witch's cult is coming!" and figure out a faster way around the White Whale.
Also everyone jumping on the whale killing= erasing memories is a clear example of hindsight, sure Subaru not linking the events is retarded but it jumping to the whale is hasty, it could be any number of bullshit reasons such as getting lost in the fog or coming in contact with the whale
>No seriously. It doesn't take a genius to realize you have a power to time reset after dying- especially since you maintain the memories of the previous timeline and you suddenly teleport.
The simplest explanation is that he was moved back to the Appa Man, not "It's a time loop!"
Yes but he's already seen to people immediately forgotten after likely physical contact with the whale.
>get his act together
I don't think it's hindsight if we as viewers can immediately deduce that it's from the whale. And we're exposed to the same information as him.
Yeah sure, I actually thought the merchant guy was like an illusion or something but once Otto forgot Rem it was pretty obvious.
Honestly I don't think it even matters even if he did tell Emilia about the witch cult.
Lets assume its midday at the beginning of the loop - in front of the apple stand. In the first loop he spends that night with Crusch. Then he spends another half a day dicking around at Crusch's manor before Rem gets the feedback from Ram. Then they take a path that takes 2.5 days to reach the manor then Rem ditches Subaru. Then Subaru arrives the following midday at the manor and everyone is already dead. I'd say it takes 4.5 days the first loop and about 4 days when the attack is initiated.
In second loop Subaru spends the night with a mental breakdown. They leave for the manor in the morning probably taking the long path since Rem is warned about the white whale from Crusch. They camp out some where along the road. They are assailed by cultist en route to the manor and well you know the rest. This loop probably takes 3.5 days since they spent less time in the capital and Subaru wasn't dicking around trying to find a ride to the manor.
In the third loop he spends the evening being rejected by Crusch and the night AWAY at an inn. Then spends the next day trying to convince the other candidates before heading off on the short path in the evening - no warning from Crusch this time. He meets the merchants that night but sets off for the manor at night. After the white whale, he arrives in the morning but passes out. The short path takes half a day in comparison to the long path. Assuming he was passed out for a day it takes him 3 days to arrive at the mansion.
Considering eps 17 and how he held Emilia from morning to evening and considering he meets up with the cult at the end of that day he had maybe 1 day at most to arrange for the defense of the manor and the evacuation of the village. Of which he had no troops and no transportation. There was nothing they could have done.
Try again with just a single carriage and see if I could sneak by since I'm not in a huge caravan making a ton of noise. Also, since I wouldn't need to waste time trying to convince the Candidates, I could head out a lot earlier.
Knowing subaru's situation he'd probably be hunted by something or other if he tried that.
'Taking this loop off' usually ends badly, and acts to remind the character why they're torturing themselves so much.
Try to gather a small army by telling people where the White Whale is going to appear, maybe
Punch catboy in the face, tell green hair that I know she's gathering weapons and money and I want in, she'll say no; so I'll drop White Whales name and leave. Ignore the blonde hair bitch and say hello to Al. Dig my finger in Mimi's ear and tell Anastasia that I have info to sell. If everything goes right, Wilhelm or catboy will show up before the exchange for counter offer.
Considering how everyone got owned in the first 2 loops there was no way they could muster a defense or evacuate with no transportation in that amount of time.
So surprisingly Subaru was actually extremely RATIONAL about what he needed to do next. ABANDON EVERYTHING AND JUST TAKE EMILIA. But do you think Emilia would agree to do that? Abandoning the villagers?
I mean if you can't save the world why can't you try to save yourself?
> Doesn't pick up on painfully obvious.
It is said Subaru is very dense so he doesn't know how to really pick up on things thus being incompetent to a fault. We known this for a long time he's a dense dumbass.
Train and learn everything I could about the world and the people in it. Commit suicide and keep doing it until I had a run where I had enough allies and training to handle the Witch Cult.
If even her shit is gone how do you expect her to still be in the pic.
The magic has it's own rules. Suzuki Honda was (presumably) dragged into this world by Satella, with the end goal being, either she gets a husband, she gets a new vessel or she gets freed, possibly all of the above. This magic allows return by death, and prevents him from talking about it.
There is no lapse in logic in what we've been presented.
Subaru is fucking autistic.
You to the town looking beaten up in a half destroyed carriage.
You know the cultists will strike soon. Just say you got ambushed by the cultists and were lucky to survive. That way everyone can prepare for defense/Ice spirit can prep too.
I understand he's not supposed to be that intelligent but there are limits to one's stupidity.
The whale erasure probably got that, too. Just like how Rem's room was just a storage room post-erasure.
It's not just a mindwipe, it's straight up reality-bending continuity-distorting magic.
>So surprisingly Subaru was actually extremely RATIONAL about what he needed to do next. ABANDON EVERYTHING AND JUST TAKE EMILIA.
would be abandon everything including Emilia
You know when people ask why doesn't he abuse Return by Death others often respond by saying the witch's smell increases. The problem with that is we don't have any indication in canon of what that actually means.
I've got a theory of what might happen if the witch's scent gets worse. It primarily comes from the events of eps 10 and a bit of 17. In eps 10 in order to lure Rem to him he attempts to tell Ram about Return by Death to bait the witch beasts. This works because they are attracted to the witch scent. In eps 17 the whale is attracted to him because of this - in which Otto then pushes Subaru off the cart.
What happens when the scent grows too strong? By the current evidence it doesn't look like the scent increase by too much however I wonder what will happen when he reaches a certain peak where by merely going outside he draws fiends, beast and maybe epic monsters like the whale to himself. They could be towns, forest and mountains away and he would draw them in like a beacon. He'd become a walking magnet of destruction where ever he went.
Just a theory though. Some food for thought.
Most of the time when he is considered stupid or dense, alot of it has to do with his own bullshit and pride to raise himself higher and only think about himself and not others if you think about it.
>Then Subaru keeps acting like a retard making everything worse.
I really hate how people keep saying this. "Subaru keeps acting like a retard"
I had thought more people on /a/ were autistic hikikomori NEETs and had experience with mental illness.
Subaru has been killed several times. He has experienced the pain several times. He has seen people he cares about die several times. He is fucked up, buddy. Fucked up. How the fuck do you reckon he's thinking straight? When he met Emilia in the last episode, he may have seemed like a retard trying to simply tell Emilia to trust him and to escape. But that's what his thought process has been reduced to, at least for now.
Nobody listens to him. Nobody escapes. There's only suffering. He wants it to just stop, but he's too broken to do anything.
Well he did consider it. But thoughts of Rem's sacrifice clouded his judgement.
It's all those dead waifu's man they just get in your head.
>He also knows that certain conditions have to be met to break out of one.
I don't remember him figuring that out. for all he knows if he spends too long in a loop he'll get stuck with a bad ending he can never escape.
>which comes from the same place he does
Because it's never stated that that's the reason he remembers, retard.
Why not just take fucking selfies of him with dead Emilia every time.
To those of you who think stupidity and density has its limits, you take a good long look at this and tell me if there really is a limit.
Well the good ends usually come from him disassociating himself with figures important in their world.
Like, for instance, the assassination target with low security that is essentially a walking nuke.
The pedo clown girl/boy.
He got fucked in the alley repeatedly because Emilia.
He got fucked in the bar repeatedly because Emilia.
He got fucked
Then he loses his shit because muh oneitis won't give me perfect end and has to be calmed by, guess who? Emilia; as she prepares him to be abruptly fucked by the deceiving clown leaving a gaping hole in his security(it seems only he emilia and the maids are his only force) so Beetlejuice can fuck his shit up.
Then you go on to see him rinse and repeat for the white whale etc.
>Acquire security and waifu
And then Reinhardt probably appears and fucks your shit up as you run around until he dies of age, assuming that's possible
Is there a trend that the checkpoints always appear around when has a chance to abandon Emilia?
i.e. the Reinhardt / Emilia choice before his wakeup in the Manor checkpoint
his current anime checkpoint. etc
>tfw I'd start a comfy life far away in an early loop
>no strong scent should mean that I attract no trabu
>grow old and die on a comfy farm with a homely wife and kids
>wake up decades later talking to one of the merchants who sells my appas
Alternatively 2 weeks into this alternate life puck nukes the world
Then why are you asking questions you already know the answer to?
Either the writing's dumb, Subaru's dumb or you're dumb.

AND MUCH MUCH MORE!
1.Because Subaru doesn't have the kind of personality hat lets you empathize with him. So his fear of death means nothing.
2.He's thrown his life away and even thought of using his return from death thing multiple times.
3.The return from death isn't shown to have much in the way of major consequences outside of drawing monsters that would have come to him anyway.
If say, after he died he was sent to something akin to a horrible hell where he's tortured or burned or whatever before he revives?
And each time he dies the time there is extended ON TOP of luring monsters from that hell and other monsters too you?
Sure. I'd see it as a bad thing and would STILL think he would be better served by being cautious with his deaths.
I actually think that this is the true endgame. Where he might decide to runaway from everything on Mt.Doom in order to protect everyone from himself.
There he battles daemons and beasts drawn to him but Satella moves the checkpoint there on Mt.Doom because he's slaying great beast similar to the whale. Until he's so engrossed in death and isolated that he'll have no choice but to submit to Satella as an escape from constant fighting and death.
There the witch of envy is able to finally absorb the father of all sin pride.
Unless he takes out the dragon. Setalla could never claim him. If anything, Subaru will slay monsters on Mt. Doom forever. But knowing Subaru he will say in towns and cities and kill everyone through drawn beasts because he doesn't want to be alone.
You do know that Emilia was randomly rescued by Subaru in the beginning, and all the tolerance that he is shown is BECAUSE he saved her right to compete for the throne, right?
>He's seen magic in that world, he's a straight up otaku. He realizes what's going on after the third time.
Denial extends a hell of a whole lot further than just seeing things. Denial extends all the way past seeing something and assuming that there is nothing more.
>"Oh, there's magic. I understand all the rules now and there is nothing more to learn. I am enlightened and all-powerful!"
That is the greatest flaw of pride and hubris.
If you like this show at this point you're literally just encouraging this man to make more shitty movies.
Subaru being shitty is only Subaru. If Subaru remains shitty until the end and the story moves onward with Subaru reaping gary stu benefits, then the story becomes bad.
Subaru becomes shitty, and his situation gets shitty because of it. It is actually very GOOD for a story to do that.
Now, does Subaru learn or die as a protagonist? That is what I want to know next.
the whale has a particular 'erase from history' attack? it can kill you in a bunch of ways, only one of which will result in everyone forgetting about you?
The bigger question is why does Subaru remember her?
People acting contrarian without specific examples within the story and acting lazy in explanations are even worse. Betelgeuse was right, you people are all SLOTH.
as much as this seems to be repeating what people already said, some people just cant into sympathy, they cant think that someone react differently to them, especially in anime where they cant self insert (or self insert too hard).
just put yourself in subaru shoes, got denied hard a day before by 3 bitches, got wrecked by white whale, suddenly no one remembers rem, and you think subaru can think straight?
>>in before, subaru is a retard, if i am the mc blablabla bullshit
im done with these guys.
>In the new episode Subaru kept rambling and forcing himself on Emilia instead of mentioning the witch cult.
I don't see how that was well written.
He did that with the green haired bitch and she asked him how he knew what he knew.
The main complaint is shitty writing - i.e. transition of Subaru turning from good MC, right after major victory and saving people into total autistic retard.
And no, you cant explain it with his stress accumulating or character development. It was just author starting new ark and thus deciding that from now on Subaru should be a retard for plot purposes.
If you understand, then shut up and go to class.
I'll walk you there.
> Eating disorder
The real eating disorders are these guys.
Fun fact, its been told that he can retain the magic that he's learned, cause once he's absorbed sloth, and greeds authority you'd expect him to forget them once he died, but nope. Magic is tied to his mind. He hasn't been training his mental battle until he wears the Royal Black Guard clothing, and becomes Sauron.
Exactly. And people defend Subaru for no reason at all.
Most of the shit Toyota does is absolutely irredeemably stupid, because the writer is. Nothing you say about how his mental health is fucking up will change that fact.
If you're new - also by extension: triggered easily(99% of you) - you should look at this handy /a/ guide to what an /a/non says, and what he actually means.
plz spoil me. do Puck manage to kill Beatlejuice?
>The writing stinks of plot convenience all the time
>>Oh, you want to tell everyone that you can respawn? Nope magic evil hands out the ass.
Even your average /a/utist can interpret this as Satella(or whomever brought him there) restricting him from saying anything. Did you not see Betelgeuse's "Hands of God"?
>>He doesn't know if his next death may be his last
He's committed suicide before. That no longer has any weight.
>>Dying is scary, painful, traumatic, etc. and you have a very strong natural instinct to avoid it that is hard to overcome
I'd like to know your logic on that.
>implying people who unironically type "bad writing" have read the LN/WN
He destroys him.
"Only this level of power and you borrow the witch's name? You are 400 years too early. If you want to kill me.."
"..at least show half of Satella's, 1000 shadows."
I've actually died before, twice actually.
I remember feeling a good sleep wash over me and warmth and then I heard a loud scream wake me up.
Then I turned to nurse or doctor standing there and and asked her to turn off that loud racket. They kept asking me stuff and I don't know. I then asked her what that loud beep sound that kept waking me up was and she said that was my fucking heart monitor. The loud beep of the thing woke me up.
LOL Holy shit.
Why did I find that funny.
Anyway, yeah. He knows he's going to die and wake up so..why not take advantage of it.
That actually sounds awesome. Too bad we'll have to wade through god knows how much of "My little MC can't be this fucking retarded" to get to that coolness.
> Mental health
Stop this bullshit. Subaru is dwells on the past too much during that scene and was emotional. Mental health my ass. If he said ANYTHING ever rational, that would go against character and that would be bad writing. Fucking idiots. That would be a contradiction.
> Good mc from the beginning that turns into an autistic retard
Even I know this is bullshit from the beginning. Since when was he a "good" mc from the beginning? He was always prideful and stupid. His every action and dialogue implies that. Examples of his pride being hurt from the first half:
> When he was being tortured by Rem and he started saying stuff that he accomplished.
> Him thinking he could be the hero alot of the times and he only got out because of his dumb luck.
> Him saying to Elsa that he has his pride.
> In arc 2 where before he committed suicide, he had no sense of self worth left until he regained it later to end his life.
Him being a fucking idiot (that is not inconsistent):
> Taking too long to realize his first three deaths.
> His very stupidity in that weird pose.
> Trying to fight an assassin alone.
> Going in to save Rem without help until Ram went along.
Clearly, what you believe not to be the same was the same all along.
There was no "change". The recent arc fleshed out how truly flawed that alot of you seem to not noticed. And guess what? You still can't comprehend. Idiots.
when will Subaru get his own kkk amry?
Probably because Re:Zero is easily one of the dullest anime in the history of
Perhaps the die was cast when Nagatsuki vetoed the idea of KyoAni producing
the series; he made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art
that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for
his LN. The Re:Zero series might be wish fulfillment (or not), but it’s
certainly the anti-Code Geass series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and
excitement. No one wants to face that fact.
>But at least the LN are ggood though!
The writing is dreadful; the LN was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every
time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character
"stretched his legs."
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated.
I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was
incredulous. Nagatsuki's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that
he has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of
Re:Zero by the same Nisio Isin. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these
kids are reading Re:Zero at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on
to read Nisio Isin." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you
read "Re:Zero" you are, in fact, trained to read Nisio Isin
That was not death anon, that was the sensation of dying. Actual state of being dead is probably akin to not being aware of anything eternally. Unless you have some sort of religion or philosophy that explains what death is; barring that there is no snapping back to life once you are dead.
