Why is Ferris the best knight?
Why is Emilia so shit? She ruined the whole episode!
Fuck you, you piece of shit. It's been the same crap with Ferris for the past threads. Fuck you. Where's slothman's credit here? Or Wilhelm? Doesn't this dude's smile matter?
Because he is the absolute best.
How would Julius even protect her smile?
Fuck you all. Wilhelm is the best character.
It was until that moment, that the strong will that hid one's true feelings burst through. The intense emotions that makes one feel as if they might loose control.
To go that far to hide one's true feelings from the young man, surely it was becauseーー、
With a hoarse, almost whispering voice, the sword demon called out the young mans name,
「Are you perhaps, my...」
Saying that much, the sword demon closed his eyes as if trying to cut out the feelings of his own weak heart.
I'm guessing we'll have pic related in the next episode.
>Serving a witch
>A witch that destroyed half the world
>Book that apparently brainwashes people into joining

So is Lugnica a poor clone of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth with cute girls instead of cavalry tents for an election?
Today I will remind them.
likely we get road kill all in ep 24.
Who is rem + suicidethen the fight flash back and the season end with Tsubaru promise to finding away to fix it.
and now we wait 4 years to see arc 4 and 5 animated. tsubaru is not as gringe worthy as arc 3 but the suffering is on par with it
the return caravan was assaulted by 2 archbishops. everyone got killed/ turn into a vegetable or had ammesia, crush gets amnesia, rem gets "erased" and turned into a vegetable
we will see this on ep 25
Damn this thread and series is so dead compared to a few weeks ago
Wew these threads are really dead.
This came in today, I guess I'll mention whatever I see relevant from it later.
And an image of the contents.
Does anyone have the image where they translated Echidna's long long speech about why Subaru should enter a contract with her?
I just finished reading it in Japanese and my head hurts. I need to check and see if I got it right.
Could someone post it if they have it?
Man I'm surprised to read Tappei explicitly stating that he didn't write Rem to be considered a heroine, at least for him.
Some other relevant things from this interview are him mentioning he recently realized he was indeed a sadist and that he kind of intentionally made the relationship between Rem-Subaru to torment the readers.
>rem is missing in the scenes she appears in
Would be a nice touch
well i guess we should wait what he has in store for emillia growth then? If he can make Rem who even he didnt consider her as a heroine and become one of the best girl ever, makes me wonder what he has in store for emillia.
actually that makes me think, is this guy actually a master of falseflagging? Rem who he doesnt consider a heroine is the one who drag subaru from the deepest hole he ever drop himself to, and title drop as well?
man i have lots of question for tappei.. but anyway
About the title drop thing, it is also mentioned in this interview that the author didn't make the "from zero" scene thinking in the name at all too.
somehow tappei manage to magically make from zero with someone he didnt even consider a heroine is either a testament to his writting skills or a pure blind luck where all stars aligned?
spbro, can we actually take tappei's word as fact? seeing he like to torment his reader, i bet he likes to throw some false info as well.
it will be pretty funny if suddenly in later arc rem is cementing herself back as another main heroine alongside emillia and again overshadow emillia as a character.. and tappei be like "i was not thinking rem will overshadow emillia, heh sucks but oh well" tormenting emillia fans this time? what a devil
>in later arc rem is cementing herself back as another main heroine alongside emillia and again overshadow emillia as a character
He'll be doing this when he sees the outrage and how hard his series flops in about 3 days.
Yeah, it's dying because Rem has been offscreen. I've been saying it all week that this shit would die without her, and all they did was call me a shitposter, but look at it now.
>and again overshadow emillia as a character.
That's pretty hard considering that Emilia characterization post arc 4 goes beyond being waifubait and a plot device.
Tappei would have to rewrite Rem's personallity completely in order to achieve what you said.
>and all they did was call me a shitposter,
Because you were? You are a Remfag after all so that's normal. A lot of Remfags left along with the excessive shitposting, so the threads feel empty.
>my opinions are objective because i say so.
yfw this starts playing before the episode ends
You're literally retarded. I bet you're the same moron that parrots this shit in every thread.
I hijacked this from another anon.
>It's a common fact that the first volume of an anime will ALWAYS sell more and shit will decrease over time, except in case of event ticket included afterwards. The ONLY series that I know so far to have proven otherwise is Symphogear, with each season selling more than the previous. A show's success is usually measured by the sales of the FIRST volume as it is more representative of the success considering people can drop out of BD purchase for whatever reason. The ranking for the best-selling anime is measured with this aspect.
Nobody cares about your shitty waifu, it's just the natural course of events. BD 3 is episode 6, 7 and 8 with its share of Rem as well, so it doesn't make sense to say that.
Fuck off, shitty waifufag.
>You're literally retarded. I bet you're the same moron that parrots this shit in every thread.
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Will we ever have threads for EX volume OVA or movies?
Bullshit. The LN volume is already gonna be out around five days after the anime ends, or was it three? Around that time span, it will be the exact same model/events of the web novel. The LN only cuts down on some content and unnecessary details and makes transitions smoother. I'm pretty sure everything is going to plan.
vol 9 comes out this month.
so the LN material is already done. likely it was handled to the anime studio to be animated
is not the 1st time this happened. Seraph of teh end S2 animated somthing that was on the manga that release 2 weeks after the series ended.
From what I could gather from the synopsis of vol 9, they are going to cut that one loop where Subaru go meet Emilia and make amends with her, only to die to Betelgeuse later again. I personally liked this loop (I thought they would include it somehow in volume 8) because it shows Subaru admitting he was better not going to Emilia and keeping everything a secret because he realized it was pretty bad having her meet with Betelgeuse.
Holy fucking christ just kill yourself you cancerous remfag, you reek of autism and biased hate towards Emilia.
If you're going there then you might as well shut the fuck up already because all of your posts are quite literally non-informative, full of autism and totally unneeded.
>implying remfags will kill themselves over this failed series
Nah, we might feel sad for a while and say "that sucks", but we won't grief over it for a long time. If anything, you guys are gonna be the ones killing yourselves because the loss of Rem will quite literally kill the series from the more obsessed Japanese fanbase.
We'll just move along our way, and look back at what could have been.
>They ruled out the anime-original option when they mentioned the letter.
Of course they want to keep things under wraps. Announcing that you're doing original ending gets rid of the element of surprise.
>We'll just move along our way,
Good, and you all better fuck off for good since no one will miss you or want you here.
On the other hand, the rest of the people that can actually read the WN will continue enjoying what they have since not having Rem doesn't mean shit since she's been out for more than 3 years straight in the WN, and it was only after this time that it got popular enough to get an anime adaptation. So you stupid cancerous fags saying Rem made this popular is quite literally wrong and retarded.
>you all better fuck off for good since no one will miss you or want you here.
You say that now, but I guarantee all of you will begging at our feet when this series is on life support. We'll just scoff at you losers lmao
>what's re zero?
>Of course they want to keep things under wraps. Announcing that you're doing original ending gets rid of the element of surprise.
This is not possible already, they mentioning the blank letter is a direct mention that Rem is already gone for the people that know this, since she wrote it.
So the next episode is probably gonna end on either Betleguese dying or the who is Rem scene right?
There's a long list of things that need to happen in ep 24.
[ ] Subaru describing his feelings when going in between Death and Return with Satella declaring his love to him in a clear voice (Happens right after his first death against Betelgeuse in the WN)
[ ] Second time we hear Satella's voice when Subaru drives out Betelgeuse using his RBD mechanic
[ ] Kill Betelgeuse and all his fingers
[ ] Reconcile with Emilia
[ ] Subaru saying his feelings for Emilia while also saying that he also loves Rem after all.
[ ] Ironing out the issue of the changed Rem scene. Subaru never got to say his feelings for Rem nor actually confirmed it that deeply as Rem never forced them out with her faking that she's dying.
24 is going to be a clusterfuck I tell you. That or they'll cut the Satella conversation cutting down the theory fuel even more.
>Is able to survive a blast that torn apart all of his clothes due to muh healing magick
>hair still perfectly intact
if they are basing the last eps in teh Novel version (likely) then something is gonna be cut off (likely the fire stones part)
if they get rid of that ep 24 can fit till road kill and 25 is gluttony and Regulus, suicide and finish with the promise to save her.
Well this anime got only popular due to the waifuwars. Just like nisekoi where people enjoyed waifuwarring more instead of actually investing into the story and all. Now that it is clear Rem is not an heroine, the waifuwar has finished the hype has died down. That is all there is to it. It is not like this was so popular when its first half was airing. Hell even now it is nowhere near the popularity SAO had when it first aired. I also had enough of this tb.h.
I care more about the story. Mainly the male side characters. Fuck waifus. That's not supposed to be the point of the series yet all these fuckers keep pushing that crap.
>Neither of them will ever smile like that again
How come Subaru is so cool?
I'm not gonna stop Waifu posting until JoJo posting and Osumatsu shit dies, which will be never.
>Has /a/ finally embraced this show
First the denizens of /a/ need to hear from a popular reviewer before they can safely say if an anime is good or not.
>Liking anything popular or isn't just shitty nostalgia bait
Just to remind everyone, /a/ hated No Game No Life just because it got popular on leddit.
But who cares about what /a/ thinks?
Just watch and enjoy the show, then discuss it with others who did the same. Ignore the autistic NO FUNposters.
sacrificesherself to re-animatetheir green twin, Broccoli along with rest of the vegetable cast, Felix included.
Quite the OVA ED.
A Ram is fine too, you know. Remfags don't have to commit
sudokuover a comatose body.
Jokes aside, at this point I really don't care anymore how it's going to end or what's going to happen to
Rem. Does every show have to end happily? No.
If White Fox desires to derail from canon to appease a certain audience, then it really doesn't matter to argue about original fiction.
Its their decisions that will save their investment. An original ending could hurt them financially just as much as canon one.
I believe in White Fox being able to deliver the edgier ending than what School Days had back in the day.
Well, let's hope he doesn't revive much earlier.
Though, like I've said in my autistic rant filled with useless spoilers:
It's up to them to keep the majority of the cast alive.
Though I'd love to see Subaru struggle once again for Rem.
Mob Psycho threads don't even reach bump limit until 2 days after the episode airs. It's full of fujoshits though.
Honestly there just hasn't been a big impact episode since Rem's confession.
We'll wait til the finale for that.
Will the animate Rem vs the arcbishop fight?
Also does Subaru kill himself over and over to get back to a more earlier checkpoint when he learns of Rem's condition until Satella or some witch interferes and makes him stop or whatever? Or he just kill himself once? Can anyone confirm?
I was talking about ep 25
I heard he was getting so desperate that he was killing himself right away over and over and over when he understands that he couldn't move to an earlier checkpoint so Satella stops him from abusing his power anymore or something similar. I'm curious if it is true or not.
There was the looping bit when he first wakes up at Emilias place. He dies quite a good amount and in different spans of time, so I would think his checkpoint is set and he has come to that conclusion as well.
Your comment immediately reminded me of this battle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Legnica
I guess the author might've stumbled on Polish history while reading about the history of Mongol Empire.
on the plus side we get more adorable mini guys
i'm really gonna miss these threads after the show ends. gems left and right.
Well if someone else had been transported into the isekai world we'd have 26 episodes of Subaru buying noodles
P-please don't make me think about it ;_;
Speaking of tight ass...
I don't actually have a picture to follow that up with.
Anyway, I think they should get that in somehow. Lessen the blow of Rem going away for years, possibly forever.
I'd prefer if they made some OVAs for all the AU chapters, but I know good things don't happen so I won't get my hopes up.
Art of Ferri touching Subaru's face while crying WHEN?
wait, does Subaru rewind time, or does he just see possible futures and experience them from a fixed point until he doesn't try to see another possibility, thus locking him into that pathway and setting up a new checkpoint for him?
I mean if he's already rewinding time itself anyways, it's a little arbitrary for there to be a checkpoint solely for the purpose of keeping him from rewinding farther back 'just because'/
Damn. This list is too packed. I'm scared.
We don't even know what's in Vol.9. They also can't cut these as they are the important hints to the mysteries. It's terrible enough they fucked up that Al scene.
There in a situation where if they decide to skim on any of those, we would be getting a half assed finale.
I've been trying to get the Rem alarm clock but not only is it region locked, the Play Store says my device isn't compatible with it, so that's two hoops I have to jump through to buy it.
>Illustrator of Re:Zero LN is Shinichirou Otsuka
>Previously illustrated a game called Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars
Am I Missing Something?
Regarding device compatibility. I think you can rename your device to another model. Just look for that somewhere in the internet.
Just a warning though, if you do it wrong it can fuck up your device. It's a soft brick only so it can be restored but it's annoying if it happens as you need to enable usb debugging and such.
>Man I'm surprised to read Tappei explicitly stating that he didn't write Rem to be considered a heroine, at least for him.
>Some other relevant things from this interview are him mentioning he recently realized he was indeed a sadist and that he kind of intentionally made the relationship between Rem-Subaru to torment the readers.
This has got to be a fucking joke. He gave her a title drop and a focus and development that rivaled that of a heroine. And he's surprised?
I'd give this interview the benefit of the doubt but if he indeed says it like as it is, he's a fucking terrible writer.
It just doesn't make sense. He made From Zero before the material was even that popular nor had a decent following. Most of the interviews where he says he was surprised at Rem's popularity suggests that he's not surprised.
I don't know anymore. But I feel like Tappei is trolling big time.
That's like claiming Kamina has a tiny part in Gurren Lagan. Her actions and motivations still stick around, she might even get revived at some point, meaning she might be around for around 2/3rds of the story. Which is roughly as much as Emilia is shooting for right now.
I want to cuddle with him and kiss his red cheeks.
So will we get to see Ferris react to Crusch's situation? Possibly more tears?
>if i respond with a crossboarder meme and greentext, it makes it not true
Except Rem really doesn't have much impact during the rest of the story, and she was only an emotional pillar for Subaru.
Kamina basically motivated the entire plot, Rem was simply there to catch Subaru once. If anything Emilia is closer to Kamina's role as she's the one motivating Subaru to do all this.
Sorry, your delusions are not the actual plot.
>Some other relevant things from this interview are him mentioning he recently realized he was indeed a sadist and that he kind of intentionally made the relationship between Rem-Subaru to torment the readers.
And this is where I draw the fucking line. Him clearly saying such is already a red flag that he's fucking around.
If he truly was a sadist, he would have weeded out the cast or broke Subaru worse than what the Third Reich could ever do anyone.
Julius apparently is gay.
Scene from the EX novel translated.
>There didn’t appear to be any malice or ulterior motives hidden in Julius’s feelings of friendship towards Reinhard. But whether it was mere friendship was somewhat difficult for Ferris to discern. There was something else there, too. Something inexplicable.
>Except Rem really doesn't have much impact during the rest of the story, and she was only an emotional pillar for Subaru.
Her impact is being Subaru's emotional pillar and that's long term you silly anon.
>I think a bit of it might be the kind of humble way a lot of Japanese creators tend to talk about their work. 'Oh I didn't expect people to like my story so much!'
But spbro says that Tappei "explicitly" says that Rem wasn't considered to be written as a heroine.
That's some huge mishap for an author if that were true.
>mfw it will take 10+ years before Rem will be seen moving in the anime again
And that's if we get more seasons.
Nah it's just that as many bad writers do, he prepicked his favorite character and sticks to it no matter how the story actually develops and pulls ridiculous asspulls to keep that char in the spotlight.
The sooner Remfags realize that Tappei is pulling this shit because his waifu cannot compete as written, the sooner they can give up and mourn for the lost potential the series had.
I just found out that Ferri is maybe 5 minutes in the Arc 4 aka whole Season 2.
The reason why I still believe that he is fucking around saying utterly dumbshit like this is the nature of the story is written.
The notion that world has a grand scheme and a predetermined fate awaits Subaru and Emilia. The best testament to that is Roswaal's Gospel and the Bishop's faux gospel. It's also funny that it writes off anything that isn't important but at the same time isn't detailed or very specific.
That wasn't him in the threads, that was me. Unless there were 2 people who said that and I missed the other one.
Why can't Subaru join Crusch's side and live happily with her and Ferri?
I assume all the cultists are magically compelled to love the jealous bitch. Emilia looks exactly like her, and the cultists believe MC is one of the archbishops of sin. If he is, that would be one explanation.
Another one is he just has shit taste.
BD vol.4 cover
This man is the most beautiful character in Re:Zero
If you disagree, you have shit taste, and should not be trusted.
There's a lot of things going on that Regulus is not the only focus here.
The opinion of one of the readers I talked to is that he says that Arc 5 was a clusterfuck. It's interesting for him to say that there was like a long part where Subaru wasn't there. He didn't mention if Emilia was there but he gave a specific number to it. Like 386 pages straight that Subaru was missing.
I kinda get the idea the author is terrible with keeping tabs of his MCs. Makes you wonder about the statements regarding Rem being a fluke/mistake.
If anyone can confirm who had the focus for that part, go ahead and do so. I'm wondering if it's Al though but I doubt it. I don't think that he would complain that much if that were the case.
> terrible with keeping tabs of his MCs
>386 pages straight that Subaru was missing
That is very strange. So far, the anime hasn't shown almost anything happen that Subaru didn't know about. Not even things that shows usually do, like the villain talking to his minions, people talking about MC behind his back,...
Holy fuck you are a complete retard. Screentime not make a character an MC. It's who the plot revolves around and it sure not Rem. She merely dragged a long story without doing anything paving for other characters. That's why the big players like the Witches, Roswaal, Wirch Cult only care about Subaru and Emilia. Side characters has variable screentime for ages, but in the scale of any story their just drop in the bucket. At this point almost every side character has just been or even more fleshed out then Rem. She isn't even special. Arc 3 wasn't even about her, but Subaru who only served as catalyist.
This post displays how far up your ass you aa entitlement goes. Fuck off already, you give Remfags a bad name.
It's no weird than Emilia not being around for several episodes since 14. Or Betty and Ram almost entore absent in the 2nd cour. Characters come and go depending on the narrative which is something that Remfags don't get.
I doubt they really have to force him, he left the door open with the coma thing, seems weird to do that if he could've literally erased her whole existence with no body left.
He could always pull an Avdol I guess.
Could Ley create an army of cultist children with women he comas? No one remembers they exist, so no one would ever notice they were abducted. Could he create his own coma service industry?
I'd assume so. All the bishop does is erase memories and put people in comas. Now Rem is just "that sleeping girl who looks suspiciously like Ram." to everyone who knew her before.
>Man I'm surprised to read Tappei explicitly stating that he didn't write Rem to be considered a heroine, at least for him
>Give an entire segment and get all "sorry, i wanted to say many things but i can't now" when episode 18 airs
>Drops Emilia outside even before the WN got famous for arc 2 and 3
>Gives her and Subaru lots of development and basically make her fix him completely, plus a title drop
>Makes Subaru go full apeshit when he finds out Roswaal would have known what happened to her
>"Muh entire reason for the tower is you" when going on about his monologue in his mind in arc 6
>At least for him
Bullshit, nobody does this sort of shit unintentionally when he's clearly trying to do so. Either he's lying about it, or he's crazy.
He put her on a cart and told her to let him handle protecting the mansion. She burned through a lot of mana fighting whale and really doesn't have anything left, so he sent her off with Crusch and other injured people.
How do you figure the witch does when they're not going around theorizing people? Betelgeuse is a top energy madman, but surely he can't just keep that up 24/7
Well if he's lying about it or being sarcastic then sure, it makes sense. But if he's serious it doesn't add up, since he put her on a spotlight even before the WN got famous, like he finished arc 3 in 2013, even before the LN got greenlit, and started arc 4 shortly after.
Him saying he didn't write her as a heroine in mind when he clearly keeps going for it just feels like a lie by this point.
Best voice. Best fashion sense. Best girl.
Well it's because that arc has everyone split up into different teams to fight, and it's physically impossible for Subaru to be present in six of the seven simultaneosly-unfolding combat zones. Focus for that part is split between seven different parties of characters.
