Since you posted best girl along with my favorite fetish, I'll actually answer your question sincerely.

Yes, you should watch it. It's great. It's both entertaining, and artful in it's presentation. There's far more to the show that what exists on the surface, and constructs a story that both fullfills a propelling situation with strict world-building, and makes symbolic connections to the challenge that the MC faces in overcoming his flaws.

It's AOTY 10/10 the Evangelion of Madoka.

It's a tradeoff. I started watching once it had reached episode 14, and now I feel empty having to wait every week for the next episode, but at least I get to enjoy the memes and discussion that happen in between.

Just watch SAO instead, it's not like Re:Zero is any better.
>>
>>144797206
Steins;Gate is a poor man's Re:zero.

That said, Steins;Gate is actually good, but Re:Zero combines S;G's premise with the messaging of Welcome to the NHK, the industry criticism of Madoka, and the frustrating buildup of Kaiji to make something that is actually engaging AND poignant in its delivery.

For one, Subaru is not a Gary Stu.

More importantly though, Re:Zero is a blatant deconstruction of shows like SAO.

I started watching it a few days ago, fully caught up now. It's great; production is tight, characters are fun and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat. Well worth a watch, I'd say.

>>
>>144798041
>>144798040
Deconstruction essentially means a critique of certain tropes that are misrepresented and/or overused.

UsIng SAO and Accel World as examples, the former places an plot armored Gary Stu in a world where he seemingly rises to the top despite his failure to rise in the real world. Accel World's MC is incompetent, fat, and unambitious, yet seems to attract bitches left and right and other good luck despite his overwhelming shortcomings.

Subaru on the other hand is an above average NEET in terms of appearance and ability, and initially views his new situation as somebody who is familiar with the Isekai trope, but finds out shit isn't just gonna work out for him magically and behaves as a realistic person subjected to shocking and seemingly endless strife.

>>144798526
Right? It's been so long since I was properly hyped for new episodes of a show. There's a lot else I enjoy more than this but god the anticipation and payoff here is great.
>>
>>144798406
My problem was that every single female wanted the mc's dick the moment she met him. Even his sister. It turned a significant amount of character interactions into garbage-tier pandering. At least they tried something different with AIDS girl. Shame she had AIDS though because she was the only tolerable female character.
>>
>>144795984
Seriously though, how can anyone prefer Rem to Ram?

Rem is a shitty Mary Sue moeblob and Ram is simply based.
>>
>>144798406
SAO is bad because it's wish-fulfillment bullshit. The people attracted to that garbage want to live vicariously through Kirito to convince themselves they are talented geniuses born in the wrong situation.

Fair enough, but the author has pretty much said he knows he's dragging it out, but he wants to have one of the longest running manga of all time. Which is funny, because it will probably be forgotten in less that 100 years once it ends because of the sheer mediocrity of some arcs compared to others.

Depends:

Do you like stories with happy endings? Stories where the good always wins? Where your hero's are character you aspire to because they're so cool? Where they do the thing, get the girl, fuck yea music plays and credits? Do you want to watch something because you want to imagine yourself being that hero. Being the fucking best. Getting all the girls.

If so then Re:Zero may NOT be for you. And hey, that's ok.

But if you want a "hero" who's very much human with all the flaws that accompany it. No seriously, just as bit of a lazy, selfish,and a failure as any of the rest of us. A hero who only moves forwards towards his goal by falling on his face but getting up one step forward. An egomaniac with a hero complex in which he expects things to just go his way as it does in his mind. For which the world puts in his place for. A character who is his own person, and not a wish fulfillment vessel for you to self insert.

Then maybe Re:Zero MAY be show you'd be interested.

Re:Zero is great in creating an story with characters who feel very life like to me. There is an scene which is infamous for its cringe between our hero and his love interest. As I watched I couldn't help but think, oh man look at this retard. But there was a point that I realized - holy fuck I've BEEN that retard. I've had these kinds of arguments before. And I suspect many anons, like it or not, would find parts of themselves in Subaru. When he spazzes out you love to hate him and when he succeeds you're that much more excited because you honestly didn't know if he actually would be able to overcome his previous failures.

Maybe it's just me, but I've become so jaded that the simple fact that you genuinely don't know if he's going to succeed excites me. So many other stories these days are painful obvious that hero will succeed at what ever they try with minimal effort or set backs. I don't think it's a masterpiece by any regards, but I think its worth watching.

Automatically thinking 'nuh uh you don't really mean anything' just because someone used a generalized catch-all to deride whatever piece of trash rather than pressing him to detail the grounds for his criticism is intentionally designed to protect you from the pain of learning your taste is shit

Technically she's still there. A lot of times Subaru was desperately trying to protect her.

If you want to be more specific and correct you can say that she's just not that involved with driving the plot for Arc 4 & 5.

However, she is still being brought up and is definitely being set up for something.

>Once he viewed the scene, he returned to a place he didn't recognize, and encountered Rem there, who he quickly realized was a fake when he heard her say things the real Rem would never say. Upon realizing that the Rem in front of him was fake, she turned into a different girl, who introduced herself as Carmilla, the Witch of Lust. He demanded to know why she took Rem's form, prompting her to tell him that if he saw her as someone else that was what he wanted to see

You can probably figure out that the smell isn't very common, with everyone who has it being quite dangerous, and he's been showing signs of knowing his way around the mansion without having to be shown. Not to mention how he's practically been worshiping and trying to get closer to someone who looks like the Witch.

Also, they've never killed him instantly. It's usually been after a few days of watching him.

The same reason he cares for Emilia.

He is a person who longs for acceptance. A place where he will feel at home. The problem with Subaru is that he goes to extremes to make himself become a person who is the center of attention. Basically he feeds off from his ego and has this hero complex. The arcs they're covering so far is meant to build the important supporting casts and Subaru's character.

If you think he's that retarded then what can we do about it. Just drop it really. No need to go to such punishing lengths only to hate it when you're way past knee deep into to the show.

The difference with most shows though is that the person gets punished for being too idealistic with his sense of righteousness. Naivety on Subaru's mindset is one of the aspects that puts it a little bit above the of the typical MC trope.

For what it's worth, I think ep 16 was a successful episode despite the insane shitposting(ironic or not). It really just twists the knife on the whole reasoning behind the sense of obligation.
>>
>>144795860

>>
>>144810805
>It really just twists the knife on the whole reasoning behind the sense of obligation

I like this part as well. I think 14-16 were really good parallels for Subaru and Rem.

Now I understand that Subaru was desperate, however it still wasn't excusable when he was counting on people to return the favor. His anger when Priscilla shot him down just drives the point that he viewed himself to be responsible for saving her when in fact it wasn't the case. He never really did much.

In the case of Rem though in ep 14, she is the self sacrificing person who doesn't really expect that much return or doesn't want to impose. Her words to Subaru when she was questioned as to why she's doing it, her answer was as simple as because she wanted to. She acknowledges that Subaru is gunning for Emilia yet she doesn't bear any sense of anger for the things she is willing to give/or has given to Subaru that will probably not be reciprocated.

Mind you though, that Rem is not a perfect character. I still feel bad about her undermining her value so much. The Rem AUs touch up on this on a very refreshing perspective of Rigel.

The world building/politics is pretty much 0 at this point in the show. Nothing is known past the name of the capital and some bitch has to be chosen to rule because the royal family/king went into hiding or some shit. I barley remember because it's never talked about. The candidates meeting was awful, it served no purpose besides saying that those were the other candidates. Was even worse when random fucking people around the room are screaming about random shit, like you'd expect a gathering of that many prestigious individuals to at least behave like a normal adults. The other candidates all said how bad of a ruler they would be and Emilia, who we have 0 reason as to why she wants to be ruler, says shit like "I want all people to be equal." Are people not equal in the city? We don't know, we're never told. Her ambitions are unknown. Why she and all the other candidates were chosen is unknown. Why they even still let Subaru in there in talk is fucking weird, he's a nobody. I can understand after he claimed to be Emilia's knight that they'd let him stay but not before all that shit, he's a nobody who shouldn't even been allowed to speak. It's just shit like that and excuses like in the last episode where "we can't get reinhard he's out of town!" or "we can't get Roswaal he's out of town!" that's just bad writing. Ram had literally 1 line of dialogue in 4 episodes before this lastest one. Rem had a fucking million, they should use that time to talk about other shit about the world. There's a ton more to write about.

So much wrong in this post. What a field day!

Because the anime is only adapting the Arc 1-3. The world building is on Arc 4-5. Let's face it, the world building aspect isn't the focus here at this point. As said by >>144810325

>The arcs they're covering so far is meant to build the important supporting casts and Subaru's character.

Also

> Was even worse when random fucking people around the room are screaming about random shit, like you'd expect a gathering of that many prestigious individuals to at least behave like a normal adults.

I can't really blame you for that. The anime adaptation had it's limitations. For 24 minutes with them giving out so much lines would be a catastrophe for the pacing of this whole show.

>The other candidates all said how bad of a ruler they would be and Emilia, who we have 0 reason as to why she wants to be ruler, says shit like "I want all people to be equal."

Maybe because you weren't paying attention to how her lineage is being viewed? Or rather she cares about her image at some point? She wants to make a name for herself. Her race is viewed as descendants of Satan so naturally that's what she'll say. She wants to be treated more fair.

>We don't know, we're never told. Her ambitions are unknown. Why she and all the other candidates were chosen is unknown.

And you're gonna say this is bad writing again just because it hasn't been revealed yet. For all I know you weren't really paying attention to that damn insignia that lit up when Felt held it.

Regarding Subaru, it's covered again by >>144810325

>It's just shit like that and excuses like in the last episode where "we can't get reinhard he's out of town!" or "we can't get Roswaal he's out of town!" that's just bad writing.

>>
What makes Re:Zero a fun watch right now is the lack of world building, and focus on plot/character. From the fragmented hints and situations described, all of the stereotypical archetypes are here and you get the sense there's a typical fantasy formula in place.

Bad guys themed after stars, with titles modeled off of the seven deadly sins (check). A series of trials to prove Emilia is worth of being the new ruler (check). Emilia having a resemblance to Satella and having her own special, unique power despite a desire to change the world for the better (check).

You can legitimately call it a deconstruction, since it takes the typical fantasy/isekai formula and just focuses in on the suffering porn that is Subaru's loop hell.

In fact, Subaru's nightmare perpetuates the idealistic dream scenario for Emilia. He manages to find the right world line for her where her hopes and aspirations aren't cut short because of her naiivety.

I'm just watching it for the deconstruction of a prideful-worthless and being reconstructed into a decent person. With that, you have to break down every single one of his aspirations, self-entitlement, self-worth and wanting to become the protagonist. The core of this series is zero-to-hero. The world-building is decent, just won't be shown in the current season.

So, pretty much everything, then?

Fantasy world is a fantasy world. It's nothing more than a setting. If there's nothing more substantive than the world building (like plot, or in MMORPGs fun gameplay) you get World of Warcraft, painfully bland and uninspired shit.

Re:Zero has carved its niche. The setting is largely irrelevant. The anime is focused in on Subaru's resurrection. Subaru's resurrection is the main plot, and the sub plot is Emilia's effort to become the ruler. It's not the other way around.

The reason Subaru is not a cliche MC is because he fits into many of these categories while also having some unique shit going on. His story has been wish fulfillment, it's been a sob story, he's been a moralfag and he's been an edgelord. There's obviously been some otaku pandering and there's certainly been some power fantasy gary stuff. He's likely a virgin, but he doesn't come across as a permavirgin due to his general confidence with women and his direct attitude toward his love interest who he focuses his affections on pretty much exclusively.

All of that is good characterization, but it still wouldn't work if it weren't well crafted. He doesn't come across as some kitchen sink character, he has very distinct traits throughout. He's impulsive, optimistic, narcissistic, and a little delusional. And over the course of the story those small cracks in his character realistically fray into near psychosis. Egocentric people really do tend to try and control everybody around them, they can believe that nobody around them can take care of themselves, and that everybody would be best off if they would just listen to what they had to say. It's a common problem that effects tons of real people, and it explodes into crazy for Subaru because of all the stress he's been put under.

There are lots of bad things about this show, but there are lots of good things as well. The characters are distinct and fleshed out enough to be investing (even all the miniscule supporting characters are more than one-dimensional, the fucking trap catgirl has depth even though she's on screen for like five minutes total!), and they're put into a story that is a fucking roller-coaster ride. It could still have easily been fucking horrible, but it manages to nail pacing and tone. There's some super negative shit that happens, but it never gets bogged down in it. There are some melodramatic moments, but the story itself is not melodramatic.

I didn't set out to blogpost, I swear.

No, just no. After Rem`s "story" talking about "characters being distinct and fleshed out is just hypocrisity or lie. Its one of the most cliche and uninspired plot, unbelievable too because badly fleshed out y author and both Subaru and Rem have huge issues in the writing seeing they just completely switch gears and thinking patterns everytime author wants it.

There are essentially 4 Rem characters, and about as many different Subaru characters. They arent the same character - the author totally failed at transition and consistency.

I cant get it how anyone even remotely versed in litterature can praise it. This is a case where less would be better, since author lacks profficiency to work with more.

The only remotely decent written character is Emilia - the only, appeaering interesting once are the ones the author just displays the premise for making them mysterious and not diving much in.

The moment he focuses on someone and tries to expand their character, motivations, backstory etc it becomes apparent he is bad at it and destroys the belivability of the character.

>I cant get it how anyone even remotely versed in litterature can praise it. [sic]
Because I'm not comparing it to literature, I'm comparing it to anime. This isn't Dostoyesky, it's an action/adventure/drama anime.

The writing is not amazing, it has a ton of serious, obvious flaws, and I'll even agree that the character backstories seem weak. I just don't care that much about backstories. All that matters to me is how the character reads in the scene. The dialog, the repartee. I prefer character-driven shows, not plot-driven shows. And character means character of the scene.

Here, I'll give you an example. Remember those thugs who mugged him in the beginning, and showed up like four times throughout the series so far? Those random gimmick characters are more effective than most leads in seasonal anime. They have more character. They're more distinctly written, more effectively directed. They're not De Niro in Taxi Driver, but if you compare them to like the MC in 91 Days? They win easily. He's got infinitely more backstory, but they've got more character.

I don't think the writing is awful, it has ups and downs. I definitely agree that the direction is what carries the whole thing, though. If the direction were weak it would all immediately fall apart, but it has been very consistently good.

For only having an arc and a half while being comatose for 2 arcs? She still has a great character of her own.

She's literally the one who is an outsider yet can relate to Subaru. She also parallels him

It's basically Isekai Higurashi except MC remembers everything making his suffering all the more delectable.
>>
>>144815961
I just don't find her that compelling on screen. She fills her role well, but her role is less interesting than those of other characters.

Let's talk about how awesome Beatrice is instead. The scene where she finds Subaru and says she's seen enough pain and suffering and kicks him out? "At least die where I won't see you." Fucking great.
>>
>>144815817
Subaru acts completely differently around them and they see him completely differently.
He's fallen hard for Emilia while she doesn't get why he thinks she's great, she sees him as a liability who just runs head first into trouble and she shuts him out.
Rem fell for him recently and trusts him after the curse dogs, he actually tries to do something about her terrible self esteem and tells her to focus on her own positives. She knows how pathetic he is but she thinks he's great for not letting that stop him from doing great things and she still seems him as trustworthy.

Beatrice is a great character but one that is not an outsider. She knows what Subaru has been going through and she's seen some shit.

I'm still waiting for someone outside(besides Roswaal or Al) who knows of Subaru's power.

Funny you say that when thematically it revolves around that.

>>144816248
It seemed really ambiguous to me what was up with Beatrice and Subaru's power. She doesn't actually remember the previous loops, but she's also never surprised by anything that happens and seems to have really solid understand of what's going on with Subaru. I don't fully understand.

Have you considered puck? He can kinda sorta read minds, can't he?
>>
>>144816360

As someone pointed out already, she vaguely knows what's up. She's not allowed to say what she knows about it though. Probably the same reason why she can't say she remembers Rem when she gets erasedby Ley

Puck is another mysterious character. I'm not really sure if he has the ability to read minds but from what is shown, he can read a person's intent or personality.

Puck is Subaru from the future. After all the desperation he reached a point where Witch gives him choice of one wish.

He wishes to be always on Emilia`s side and have power to protect her. The price however is transformation into spirit and loss of own memories.

They really should fix this fucking spoiler tag. It's behaving in a very awkward manner when nested.

What im getting from this is that subaru is like a retarded version of naruto except he doesnt know how to fight and doesnt even bother using his revive ability to actually get good, or let the same scene replay and slowly learn how to counter it. Instead he just rolls with it like a fucking retard.

Am i missing something here? is subaru really a autistic retard, because thats what im getting from what people say about him.

Where the fuck are the Volume 2 BD rips??

>>144816575
I love Beatrice's character. The way that it's just sort of implied that she knows everything.

>>144816712
He doesn't want to die. That's the whole point. He suffers horribly, and it's shattering his psyche. He has this whole little speech about how he's more afraid of death than anyone because he's experienced it before and it's terrible. And the show always makes sure to make it fucking horrific when he dies.

What's so bad about silver/white-haired girl. I wanted to watch it for her.

>>144816961
She stinks.

>>144816712
The show had been making constant arguments against this practice

Remember Subaru's 2nd loop at arc 2? Where he explicitly said he would try to retrace his steps? It turned out differently because even the most minor difference in action (like Subaru not sucking as bad at chores in the first loop) causes alterations that make things play out differently. It's not like Steins;Gate where Kurisu completes the time leap machine regardless of whatever Okabe does.

Subaru's physical and magical specs, save the ever-intensifying smell of the witch, doesn't carry over to new loops. We can assume muscle memory is also reset. So Subaru's stuck with his shitty stats most of the time.

Subaru is fucking weak, like really really fucking weak to the point where the author explicitly said the only person Subaru can consistently won against is Petra (that fucking kid in the village). He does get better in later arcs but right now he is weak.

Does she take off her socks in the anime?

This will determine whether or not I watch it.

No, but her arms legs and neck all get broken and twisted around the wrong way if that's a factor.
>>
>>144817405
That doesn't sound attractive at all.
>>
>>144817424
She looks like a marionette with its strings cut.
>>
>>144817452
For some reason that made it sound slightly more attractive.

Fuck everything.

The show does actually sort of tease some foot femdom in one scene but it pussies out at the last second.
>>
>>144817591
So basically I can get everything I need out of the show by looking up a single webm of it. Sounds good.

Why isn't there any grills in the bottom 3?

I loved the first two mini-arcs. I loved them so much I thought about the payoff in episodes 7-8 for days after. But I had to draw the line somewhere.

Subaru started acting irrationally, and you could see his mind breaking. What made the previously mentioned payoff so great was that other characters brought him out of that funk. It felt so cathartic to see him break down in front of his friends and come out of it a better person. But this is the only time this happens.

After that Subaru just fails, and fails, and loses his mind, and loses his friends, and he moves out of the realm where any sane person could really relate to him.

And then it becomes apparent at around episode 14 that the story is being written to just put the characters through as much emotional and physical torture as is made possibly by the time travel mechanic. This is Sword Art Online levels of "why the fuck do I have to watch this."

I had high hopes, and the first 8 episodes were still great, but this became offending to watch as the world is just kicking the main character while he's down. I watched up until episode 17 until I realized this was going nowhere.

You should learn to think for yourself.
