Did they ever explain why Elf girl said her name was Satella in loop 1?
>>
>>147448735
Probably because she was trying to push him away as she thought he was getting close to her with ulterior motives.
>>
>>147448838
But saying her name is Satella is basically admitting to being the witch, any normal person in that world would have strangled her to death right there and then. She had no idea that Subaru had no idea who Satella was. Pretty fucking risky move just to bat some harmless kid away.

I think they would run in terror

There are so many plot holes in this show, it's turn your brain off entertainment
>>
>>147449596
But the witch isn't working against her own agenda. Do people not even pay attention when they watch this show?
>>
>>147449282
He's correct though
>>
>>147448735
Maybe to test if he was witch cultist?
>>
>>147449077
They would run like the thieves in the alley, she knew Subaru was more pathetic than they were.
>>
>>147449596
>Why didn't green hair girl detect he was lieing when he said his phone could "detect" the whale?
He wasn't lying. The phone is how he can detect the whale, though only with an indirect method involving Subaru already knowing the time of the whale's appearance.
>>
>>147450153
And if he was, then what?
>>
>>147448838
It's disgusting that people constantly need to invent shit to fill plot holes.

They just wanted her to be edgy for a moment to shock the audience or whatever. It didn't fit her character at all saying something like that.

This is how terrible the writing is in this shit show.

You bastards.
>>
>>147448735
Because she is and figured telling a nobody autist like Subaru wouldn't change a thing.
>>
>>147451039
Get away from him? Emilia can take on Betelgeuse, what chance does a random witch cult spy have against her?
>>
The bigger question is how nobody lynched Subaru for happily calling out Satella's name like a witch cultist
>>

Does it ever get explained how or why Subaru got teleported into the world? Is it in LN?
>>
>>147452255
Stop this meme, they included it in the anime, the LN gave the same explanation, Subaru thinks it was to stop him from getting involved in her problems, so he wouldn't waste his time with her.
>>
>>147452069
Hitler is dead, Satella is not.
Emilia looks like Satella, the bloke does not look like Hitler.

Flawed logic.
>>
>>147449596
>Why at no point did he question why the witch was working against her own agenda by continually sending him back in time to defeat her followers?
Why would he question it? It makes no difference. Even if he doesn't understand why Satella is getting him to kill her followers, it's not like he can do shit about it.
>Why didn't green hair girl detect he was lieing when he said his phone could "detect" the whale?
That was a half-Truth, not a full-blown lie. The phone does tell him when the Whale will show up.
>Why did the whale attack him in the first place?
Why would this be considered a plot hole? Just happened to be right place right time.
>How did he charge his phone?
It's conceivable that he could have turned his phone off to conserve power, but I guess this could be considered a plot hole, albiet a minor one
>Why did he agree to give his phone to that guy in exchange for his help, knowing full well it would soon run out of power and become a lemon? Guy's going to be pissed when he realizes he's been fucked over
And how exactly would he go about finding Subaru after getting scammed? Subaru could just skip town.
>How did the book come back to him like a boomerang after he threw it at sloth guy?
I don't know. I'd have to rewatch the last episode to see if there's a reason because I didn't notice that the first time.

It's one of the main mysteries of the story, most assume Satella pulled him, but there's more people from earth in that world, some are even implied to have founded some of the countries, or at least influenced then a lot.

Hamburger shop, Kararagi has Japanese style clothing, Anastasia's country has Kansai dialect, and so on. It has been happening way before Subaru got brought in.
>>
>>147449596
You seem to think Satella is the one pulling strings in the witch cult, when it was never stated. There's a reason why she rejected Betelgeuse, who was probably the most devout follower of Satella.

I thought it was because she was noticing how much he wasn't "from around there," and she was testing how much. The witch is kinda feared across the world, but here's this dude in clothes she's never seen, with soft hands and muscles you don't get from combat or hard labor, who can speak well but can't read and pronounces some words funny, and who seems oblivious to so many things that are obvious to even children in their world. She's never been received well by anyone because of her appearance, but here's this ignorant dude who treats her like anyone else.

So in that one timeline, with those particular observations, she introduces herself as Satella as a kind of a final test. She also probably didn't want to divulge her real name to this weird stranger in that timeline either, for whatever reason. I don't think it's explicitly explained in the anime, but there's plenty implied.

There, enjoy your spoon feeding. <3

What? Watching a sequel before the first movie isn't the same at all as what's happening here. If you watch a sequel to a movie without watching the original movie, there are gaps that can be explained within the existing canon. The Re:zero anime has no such luxury. It is not a sequel to anything. There are gaps that will never be explained, and there will never be a second season.

What a terrible analogy.

Not him, and I haven't read any of the WN, LN, or wiki, but I can infer it's clearly all part of Satella's plan, and it's a fate Subaru has chosen to meet head on, if he's thought about it at all yet. Betelguese says the "ordeal" is just a test to see if Emelia is a worthy host for Satella's spirit, so you can clearly tell that all of these pawns are being thrown at her as part of that continuing test. Subaru clearly fills an equal but opposite role, having been given the most powerful ability of all the Sin Archbishops: return by death.

How is any of this difficult to come up with? Why do you need all of the mysteries of a show answered in the first season? Why did your mom's doctor fail your abortion and plague us with you?

He purposefully fills the role of anti-hero who is unlikable, but a far more realistic an MC. He does get better, though, even after getting worse for a while. I'd stay off /a/ threads at least until you're done with the anime tho (and that might not be enough), everyone is spoiling everything right now (even from the WN and LN, not just the anime).
>>
>>147455559
In that scene he is anything but realistic.

First of all he is trying to "save" two psychotic monster who clearly are insane. But they're cute so it's ok.
And hasn't it crossed his mind that he could be actually dying everytime. And the new "him" would be just a copy. That's just stupid

It's never even implied that COULD be what's happening. That's literally just your tangent of a thought.

But even if that's what's happening, it has no bearing on anything whatsoever. Not only could he not figure that out, as there would be no way of proving or disproving it, but it would be unnoticeable. Even if it's a copy of him, it has all his memories and experiences, so he wouldn't be able to tell.

I think, therefore I am is the only truth. To look into existence any more than that is a waste of time. You either live in the here and now and do your best to have a life worth living, or you don't.

What tells you it was the cultist and not betelgeuse?

>My issue with re: zero is it's lack of focus onto any particular theme, plot point, or character development that holds up in a meaningful way throughout the series. There are no motifs, or any sign that what i see will be relevant onto the story later without having to slog through meaningless bullshit. Anything i get seems to be thrown away for no good reason later on.

>For example.

>We have 3 episodes that gives us a tight, focused story on subaru meeting a couple of characters over returning an item. In this time we get some good characterization from felt(poor ambitious child), some characterization from the old man(lazily old dude that cares for felt like a grandchild but with rough exterior), some characterization for emelia(nice girl* it's not a particularly strong character statement), and some characterization from subaru(a neet that tries to find a stereotypical role to fill in an "anime" world).
>>
>At this point, i like it. It's a good hook into the series with a solid cast and premise. Bonus points becuase it seems to come off as self-aware through subaru and pokes fun at cliches.

>I'll start and point out the questionable decision in pacing to throw two of these characters to the backburner and have a complete shift to slice of life murder mystery mansion setting(i'm not even including the assasin and knight). This went from an adventure chase that took place across different areas of a city to a static mansion. I don't care if the previous characters come back 10 episodes later. It's jarring and breaks flow to introduce a whole house of a new cast.
>>
>We get to the mansion and have to be reintroduced to new characters. This is an inherent "retcon" of a cast foundation. 4 episodes into your anime. It isn't just adding characters. It's a re-learning of who we're suppose to care about. Emelia certainly isn't strong enough of a character to afford to be absent. I'd even say it's detrimental that she occasionaly shows up just to interact with subaru and enforce him.

>At this point you guys are probably saying something along the lines of "she isn't suppose to be the center of attention, she has her own life away from subaru. She's independent". I disagree. That pretty much solidifies that the anime is only about subaru and his unbearable character "development", which i don't think is good enough to hold the anime by itself . What am i getting out of subaru selfishly crying for 16 episodes exactly?

>This is enforced with the opposite "overdeveloping" of rem. I say overdeveloping becuase the anime focuses so much on her just to do so little. She is given a back story, she has a dynamic arc with subaru, and she has motives(keep in mind she developed into a character that hinges on the existence of subaru). What happens? She's shafted to highlight subaru's character trait.
I.e shes torturted by cult leader just to make subaru suffer, she becomes a character who's purpose is to serve subaru, is supportive of subaru when he needs it, ect.
>>
>>147455008
if you're 25 episodes into a story and an explanation for the the premise hasn't even been hinted at, then the story is poorly written.
>>
>The main love interest is underdeveloped and the developed "love interest" is treated like a plot device.

>Look, i get it. We've had our string of gary stu's for the past couple of anime seasons. That doesn't mean that a character that comes along to be bad at everything is a good character. There's more to good character writing other than "look how cringey he is!". He's unreflective and events around him only happen to reinforce his lack of learning. It's just a small part on to the bigger shit show that is the anime.

>And that there lies on my biggest issue with the anime.

>Subaru, who is suppose to be the one carrying the anime, who demands a cast around him to be neglected in the eyes of the viewer, is too weak of a character for this show to be considered "good". There is no learning for subaru to justify so many episodes. You can't have subaru suicide to save the twins in one episode, have him be scared to die in every episode after, say that he actually didn't learn anything the whole time and expect that to be acceptable. I don't give a shit that he "derives his worth from the views around him" because everything falls apart around him for little return, if any. There's no solid theme, plot point, or characterization that stands out as exceptional.

Not that guy, but can you explain to me why Subaru loves Emilia without defaulting to a "love is irrational" argument? Because in that exact same vein there is a perfectly logical love that Rem has for Subaru with concrete reasoning based on extended interaction and clear motives.

I really don't care about the waifu wars. I just want to understand this because it's apparently the pivotal plot point for this entire show that just doesn't hold up.

>>
>>147459792
I've always assumed that he's compelled to love her because of the witch's influence, considering the two seem to have some sort of implied association on top of looking like each other. That or love at first sight or some shit since he's a NEET who finally had a pretty girl pay ANY attention to him. There's no following logic with this shit, really.

but they have hinted at it, several times and in several different ways. just because you're too dull to catch it with your middle school level comprehension skill doesn't mean it's not there.

there's a word for it: mystery. the idea is to slowly unfold the plot without giving away too much all at once. yet I can still predict how the entire story is going to go, barring the inner twists and turns.

Hoy can you keep a series "mysterious" if every mysterious thing introduced in the first half of the series is treated like everyday stuff and then forgotten forever.

That really was Satella. She fell in love with Subaru and so gave him the reset ability. Emilia was who he met each time after, she looks identical to Satella as noted
>>
>>147462581
So she just randomly picked a human from other world? What about Puck?
>>
>>147462155
it's treated like an everyday occurrence by Subaru because he's a NEET who watched Konosuba last season and plays way too many video games. he not only embraces it, but is even surprised when he receives no guidance or super power. this show is a deconstruction of the genre of "trapped in another world" that SAO shat all over.

not only that, but he really hasn't had a chance to even stop and breathe since everything started. he can't go two days without some catastrophe happening to him or someone around him. he doesn't have the luxury to sit around and contemplate his reason for being there when he has to focus on saving the people around him. plus he's actually is pretty consistently questioning the witch's hold on his heart, and using every bit of the fact that she's there to his advantage. he also spends a lot of time trying to figure out what the witch's cult is on about.

also, I can predict stuff because I'm a super genius. meanwhile, you're over there with your finger up your nose asking soft hitting questions. predictions aren't guaranteed to be right, yet people literally spend most of their time while watching/reading a mystery crafting their predictions. succboi

No, not at random, Satella has the hots for Subaru. Don't automatically believe a spirit creature when they tell you their name is Puck

Because they needed a shitty cliffhanger.
Actual reason was dumb and pointless

Speculation - EMT is aware of the outlines of the witch's plans for her, at least in very general terms. It's why she says she wants to be queen for "selfish reasons". Something there to work against the witch's plans.

This is some retarded writing right here.

>confuse Rem for Ram
>suddenly shocked and upset that the person he thought was alive and in front of him is, in fact alive

I don't understand. Was he shocked that Ram wasn't there? What the fuck how did the editor not catch not this? Is it a translation error or something?
>>
>>147454415
Depends. Is he the same guy who pretty much destroyed half the civilized world and is known to be one of the most powerful and evil beings in existence?
If so, I'm getting the fuck out of dodge right after apologizing for my girlfriend's lack of immediate submission.

I don't think it was mentioned at all in the anime, he did say it directly to him in the manga though.
>>
>>147467744
It's not, I think the problem might be that both of them are alive. That said Al does do some contradictory stuff like how he freaked out when he saw an illusion of Satella yet when Priscilla destroyed it he got angry.

They did establish that rule early with dogs, although the anime didn't cover that Mabeasts desire to eat mana sources and always consider things that smell like the witch as prime mana sources.

Al seems to have had a bad time. I'm thinking he hangs out with Priscilla because her life is conveniently easy.

>Why at no point did he question why the witch was working against her own agenda by continually sending him back in time to defeat her followers?
Probably because they were also threats to Emilia.

>Why didn't green hair girl detect he was lieing when he said his phone could "detect" the whale?
Because Subaru never claimed it was a whale detector. Specifically, he says "with this I can predict when *and* where the whale will appear." He's not lying, because without it he'd only know *where* the whale will appear. He also never claims it's a metia, only that it's been *called* a metia by other people. That's how he bypasses her lie detector.

>Why did the whale attack him in the first place?
Witch's scent.

Can somebody explain why the old sword grandpa claims to know that subaru is "someone who experienced death alot of times already"
>>
>>147477209
Wasn't it "Doesn't fear death" ?
>>
>>147477325
might depends on the sub, but me and that guy clearly remembers him saying experienced death. In fact i even checked twice when he said it just to make sure if it wasn't "seen death" but no, it's "experienced death".
>>
>>147477209
He's the fucking sword demon
He had to kill for a living when he was young.
His wife died in the battlefield.

Just finished reading the Interlude 3/6 and holy shit Ferris is acting too passive-aggresive because of Crusch, he must be fucking wreck on the inside.

Not even strangled (I don't think anyone would even think of doing that to the Witch): they could've just called the guards and have her arrested.

Using such an alias when you're already suffering from heavy bias and discrimination is like asking to get yourself executed.
>>
>>147463041
To me it sill follows many of the common LN/isekai trends

>MC adjusts to new world unreasonably quickly
>Meets a sexy girl on the day he's transported
>Side character falls in love with MC after he helps her one time
>MC has unique ability

The show is self aware about common isekai/light novel tropes but ends up doing many of them anyway.
>>
>>147477981
The witch literally destroyed half the world, and needed the 3 strongest forces of her time to band together just to seal her. Everyone not names Reinhard would be scared shitless, including the guards.
>>
>>147450027
Probably not, because it was boring as shit. Plenty of crappy shows have plotlines, they're just not interesting. Like Re:zero. Honestly, I didn't pay attention to some shit, which might why I dislike the show more than it deserves, but then I realise if it can't hold my interest well enough that I zone out within 20 minutes, it was probably shit to begin with.
>>
>>147477209
Dumb plot point that makes no sense. There are tons of them. Like when Subaru asks Crusch to help him out with the Witch's Cult, and she asks what he can offer in return, he says nothing, she says "make Emilia drop out of the election", he says "sure, that's better than her being dead" and she says "that won't cut it because she's not gonna win anyway". Why bring it up if you're immediately going to shut down the idea? I don't comprehend.
>>
>>147478788
Or you have attention deficit disorder
>>
>>147478779
But Reinhardt exists, lives in Lugnica and is very much a part of the Royal Guard: plus I doubt anyone among his peers is unaware that he is te Sword Saint. Even if the dude Emilia scared off by calling herself Satella went to speak to a different guard, the task of arresting/stopping her would naturally be deferred to him.
>>
>>147478779
>everyone not named Reinhard

Animeonly pleb here. Is he really that strong? Thought he was just another high tier knight.

I don't have the powerlist image saved, but yeah he's ridiculously OP.

She was clearly testing Subaru to see how far he'd go for EMT and if he was actually giving things proper thought. He offered no real bargaining chips but still demanded her resources without showing her proper respect or consideration. The suggestion showed that he really wasn't thinking about offering anything back.
>>
>>147480646
Supposed to 15 arcs. We only just finished arc 3 and they get longer.

You cannot kill him without special means, and then he gets to come back to life

>>
>>147481721
Jacking off to Emilia's panties desu
>>
>>147481721

The time between anyone in his domain even being aware that an attack is coming and when it happens is not even 24 hours, remember. Had the letter not been blank there may have been enough time for him to be notified and get back, but even then it probably wouldn't have been enough.
>>
>>147448735

The conversation was like this:

If you watch a show you dislike enough to fall asleep and then complain about made up shit because you didn't pay attention you must be retarded.
>>
>>147481407
But the thing is, there isn't much reason for her to care about Subaru's poor negotiation. In fact she could've used it to her advantage. She could've gotten Subaru to do anything she wanted, from swearing vassalage to her to making Emilia drop out to giving her all the information he knows about Emilia and her household (she could even use her blessing to confirm if it's the truth or not). Plus she would've gotten a lot of good publicity for taking out a group of well known dark magic cultists, which would've increased her support.
>>
>>147481677
I thought all the parallel worlds were identical apart from Subaru's actions and witch scent. Also it's likely Beatrice would've detected it when looking for curses on Subaru, or for Ferris to find it when he was healing him.
>>
>>147448735

Because SHE´S SATELLA, that loop was a tutorial about his mission in this world.
>>
>>147481721
Waiting to see if Subaru had avoided it.
>>
>>147481721

He spend the time fucking Beatrice. Please read Arc 4 novels
>>
>>147479335

His ability is basically "Fuck you, I can have any ability I want". He's the strongest character in the whole verse, barring Satella.
>>
>>147453402

She´s irrelevant, in Arc 4-6 she dont exist anymore
