Anybody else hating Subaru's autism?
I know it's a light novel adaptation, obviously, I just feel that it strikes a really annoying contrast considering some of the dark shit that goes on. And in a way that's good – seeing Subaru be autistic one moment and get gored like a swine the next is shocking in a good way – but at the same time, most of his interactions are dominated but this pesky behaviour. It just makes me long for the more heavy stuff, and repellent to his light-hearted antics.
His interactions with Emilia, in-particular, are some really offputtingly cringeworthy generic-MC-tier bullshit.
I know you could counter this, by saying he's more familiar with her than she is with him for obvious reasons. Or even that the way he acts is a coping mechanism, but I still think of it as the downside of the show; what I have to, to an extent, endure to get to the meat.
Though, the show's nailing a pretty unique premise well. So I'm hoping at some point it's revealed to truly be a straight-up coping mechanism, and after a string of brutal, unavoidable deaths, we get punished Subaru being harrowed as fuck.
All of this is said as someone who has no prior knowledge of the LNs, so apologies if I stated the obvious/missed the point a little. But, thoughts?

I have to agree. At first I like his attitude but now he is just fucking annoying. Gets killed repeatedly and his happy go lucky way of doing things is iratating. Also the supporting cast isn't very like able especially the maids. Honestly the user who said the only interesting thing that happens is the last 3 minutes was the on the money. Nothing else happened and it the usually mc faggotry.

It took him 3 deaths to realize he was in a groundhog loop. It took him 3 deaths to realize he didn't die in his sleep from natural causes. All these fucking times he reset, he still keeps assuming people would remember things that happened before he died.

I can't believe how mentally retarded people like you are.

It took him 3 deaths to realize he didn't die in his sleep from natural causes.
WTF are you talking about, you are literally making shit up out of whole cloth. He realized it instantly that he looped in the mansion because he'd been killed, that's why he stayed up to find out what happened. He got cursed, then still crawled his way out and was directly killed in loop #2. He then found the identity of that attacker (though not the curse) in #3. He never ever thought he "died in his sleep from natural causes" holy shit.

All these fucking times he reset, he still keeps assuming people would remember things that happened before he died.
No, he doesn't. The only times he's confused are when he doesn't realize he's in a loop, but even then he catches on quick. The instant he figures out the looping he's never confused by this again, in fact part of the entire core pathos of the situation which is emphasized over and over again is how painful it is to be the only one who remembers, how soul sucking it is to have to begin over and over again and how it's impossible to "meet for the first time" more then once. How could you fail to get that, this shit is not subtle.

There is not one good character in this entire show and that is a problem. Like the thief won't be seen again and the old man as well. As of now we have the princess, the maids and the lord of the castle plus the mc. Who in that group of people is getting characterization'? No one. We get loops to reset any change and thus we keep doing this until the mc is out of the loop.

Also would it kill the mc to give a shit about missing his parents and old life?

Caleb Flores
Caleb Flores

WTF are you talking about, you are literally making shit up out of whole cloth.
He literally said after the second time he got killed that "well I got attacked by someone, so I guess I can rule out natural causes". Pay some fucking attention

but even then he catches on quick.
Are we even watching the same fucking show you ignorant fuck

He's slow as fuck to realize ANYTHING is wrong. It takes him fucking ages to take a hint when any normal person would have been suspicious

He's painful as fuck to watch because he's soooooooooooo fucking oblivious to everything going on around him.

Blake Butler
Blake Butler

Loops have been done, what makes it more unique is that it really is a curse, not a super power. He doesn't get any special skills or strength, there is no hidden massive magic potential (he's got no good element and what minimal he does have sucks), nada. He's reasonably in shape, but that's not at all unusual in Japan (maybe that's something Amerifats have trouble relating too, that an entire population could on average be in decent shape), etc. He doesn't have any massive hidden trauma or family with secret powers or whatever, author did give him some depth and backstory but it's not super. And as far as his looping, he can't control when the save point shifts either, he can't count on it being static which limits his ability to really try to change things, he can't predict where it'll restart until it does, and he can't even tell anyone about it which makes it even harder to build up anything each time.

In most loops there's some sort of significant self-improvement or change that happens which helps the MC escape. Not this time, he just has to suffer until he figures some sort of path out, if one exists. Because it's perfectly possible he could end up in a situation where there is no good solution at all for a normal human. He can't even just decide to end it all, it's not under his control. He HAS to keep going.

Oh boy, goal post shifting. You wrote
It took him 3 deaths to realize he didn't die in his sleep from natural causes.
which since you now say "second time" obviously you realize was you being retarded.

Also, he NEVER thought "natural causes" he just didn't know how it had been done, which is perfectly reasonable since he was unconscious for it and had zero information to work with. The instant he had more info (staying up second loop) he deduced that his first murder had been due to the "debilitation" in his sleep (he doesn't know about curses exactly yet, he gets that info next, but magic or poison is not hard to guess), and that this time he was finished off physically.

Too bad you can't get killed and loop user, then you could have stopped yourself from writing something so stupid in the first place :^)

Nolan Adams

I feel like this show is stretched out a little more than I'd like.

What a shock.

If anything the threads make clear it's the opposite, in the novel he's a lot more introspective and spends significant time reflecting on what's happened, he's got a lot more depth in general. Almost all of that is cut from the anime to make it tighter and faster, and viewers are supposed to read between the lines more. Which Sup Forums shows isn't actually something a lot of viewers are capable of.

Andrew Rivera

That is retarded. Mc knows after each death it will reset to before he took the job, therefore nullifying any earnings he made.

Okay he goes to another city and then what? He is broke and doesn't know anyone there.

Landon Cox
Landon Cox

Exactly. Asking for work was a genuinely smart thing to do, particularly since he thought the looping shit was over and done with. He's a normalfag stuck in another world, he's got zero resources, not much useful skill, no special abilities or potential, and he's young so he has decades to think about. Through effort/luck he is in the mansion of a top tier mage/noble who is positively disposed temporarily. He chose an option that means:
- He builds up some positive relationships with a number of rich, powerful people who will in turn look after him.
- He gets a chance to slowly learn about the world with people who aren't out to fuck him (he thinks), and he gets some decent job learning eventually (butler to a magi/noble is going to be a high learning position for that kind of society for a normal person).
- He does it all in a place that should in principle be amongst the safest.

It's a totally decent choice for someone thinking long term and has a normal decent work ethic which he does. He's starting from zero, so even if just asked for tons of money now what? Odds are he'd have it all stolen from him or be killed for it. He doesn't even know what he doesn't know yet. If he's a super dick, then they'll be looking to get rid of him as quickly as possible and certainly won't go out of their way to help any farther. Would it even be possible for him to necessarily find somewhere else with the kind of ultra tier healing he can get there?

Normally it'd be a really excellent, unusually realistic choice. He's got some bad luck in the situation is all.

Josiah Morales
Josiah Morales

I really detest the retarded grinning he always does in front of Emilia.

Blake Cruz

And then he dies resetting everything which will happen. So what was the point of that? The only point is that the deaths are there to induce suffering and nothing more. Mc will eventually after numerous trial and error get out of the loop to be in another loop after that. The whole show is just that loops and nothing more. Progression is what this show lacks.

Charles Price
Charles Price

I guess you're just too retarded for this show.

Chase Hall
Chase Hall

That is retarded. Mc knows after each death it will reset to before he took the job, therefore nullifying any earnings he made.
When he first took the job he didn't know this was going to be a theme. He thought that he'd already had his suffering multi-death groundhog loop and had successfully broken out of it, and now he was thinking about his future. That's why he put so much effort into everything, and why he was so devastated when it was all taken away. He tries again, but then realizes that he can't really get the same thing back and is also facing a situation that can't be resolved easily at all, even worse possibly then the previous one. And that this shit is going to be ongoing and horrible.

This is the problem with the show.
You're just dumb. Go watch something else.

Fuck is the point of this show anyway?
A normal person trying to solve a mystery and figure out a way to get through it. How dumb to you have to be to miss this obvious, obvious theme.

How is any tension supposed to happen when the mc can just go back unscathed and have his memory as well?
Because he's losing a lot each time, and he doesn't somehow get to train up powers or gather weapons or whatever. Knowing something doesn't mean necessarily being able to do something about it, and in fact that makes it even worse. Remember, he can't even share all his knowledge and experience with anyone else. He's under ever more psychological pressure, which twists him, which in turn twists his interactions with others which makes things worse. There is tension in when/how he'll figure something out, and how high the cost will be. Duh.

Jace Edwards

It'd be nice if I could believe you were only pretending to be retarded but it's clear you aren't. Luckily there are endless anime that are just ultra simple SoL or shonen or whatever, so you can watch something that matches your IQ instead. Off you go.

Xavier Collins

If you want to get technical about it, everything is unique regardless of how similar it may be to other things.

That dragon dildo on your desk is unique, despite the fact that there are several more nearby. You yourself are unique, despite being one out of countless other anonymous fagets.

Obviously when you are writing a book, or a show, or creating a game, you want to be as original as you can. You need to make the best of what you have with all the concepts that are at your disposal. Is it really your fault when so many of the common ones fit together and are utilized by so many others? That's the great challenge, making more with less. I consider this unique in that (A) the MC must die to rewind time, (B) the power or curse itself is beyond his control, and (C) the way he must handle it all as a hikkineet teenager. He's pretty self-confident and funny, and rather than use self-deprecating humor he prefers to be a cocky little shit and stand out as much as possible. He takes things in stride so easily that it's almost scary.

I have to say my favorite relationship is the one between him and Puck. The scenes where they dick around with one another never fail to make me laugh.

Jaxson Ross
Jaxson Ross

He wanted to work for his living initially because, as he outright stated himself, he likes seeing his efforts go rewarded. He didn't want to freeload.

Progression is what this show lacks.

He has shown very blatant progression, by taking different paths each time, to the point where on life 3, he opted into the role of a guest.
If you're too dumb to notice it, just say so, senpai. We won't judge you.

Josiah Howard
Josiah Howard

The thing that I don't get is why going the guest route sets him up for Ram. Is it because Ram is more likely to enjoy being around slackers due to being a "ditz" herself? Compared to Rem who's the skilled efficient type who sounds more like she would like a person who can do something. This whole shit makes me feel like the killer isn't the same depending on which route he takes, and that the maid he didn't get to have a "heart-to-heart" with is the one that kills him for some yet unknown reason.

You're stupid as fuck. clearly said "he thought the looping shit was over and done with". He did it again the second time to recreate the same loop and see what went wrong (which failed). He chose to be a guest on the third to have an excuse to go away. It's not fucking hard to understand, you low-IQ society reject.

I think one beat that hasn't been brought up yet are the direct effects previous timelines have on the subsequent ones.
Remember how the shopkeeper responded differently to him in one of his re-dos, because he felt empathy as someone had recently found his lost daughter, or something along those lines?
In the first loop, he had to go out and find her/ In that one, it has already happened.
Unless I misunderstood that, it shows pretty clearly that there's some bleed effect.
Also, all this stuff about him being retarded, the one way in which he is is not taking advantage of Beatrice since she's clearly above the loop due to spending time in another dimensional plane (library).

Alexander Cooper
Alexander Cooper

The thing that I don't get is why going the guest route sets him up for Ram.
I'm not sure what you mean by this. I don't think it "set him up for Ram", it change his interaction with her somewhat but that would have happened anyway. The biggest factor had nothing to do with guest status but rather one of the only carried over changes to his own skill, namely his growing ability to read basic children's stuff. That's what led to the fairy tale exchange. It's conceivable that it would have happened anyway if he'd been studying while working, though I suppose his guest status let him study MORE so maybe he was able to get up to speed on language a bit quicker.

Matthew Russell

He wants to know if the other people in the mansion are going to be targeted. That's the reason he chose to watch over the mansion from the mountain. He actually cares about the people in there. His goal isn't to get away and even if he did, he would end up in his bed again I'm pretty sure.

Carson Turner
Carson Turner

I see people writing this a lot but you guys are clearly mistaken. She always says that "it's the second time she sees him today" because she saw him, DRAINED HIS MANA, he collapsed and the checkpoint was created. THAT's why she always says "that's the second time I see you today".

Alexander Allen
Alexander Allen

There's no "bleed effect" in the way I think you're suggesting, but there is a butterfly effect that is realistic. The thing is that none of us could ever actually respond in the same way during a loop situation each time. Our memories would change how we looked at things, which would change our body language, speech, approach etc., and in turn others would change their responses, and it'd ripple rapidly. You can't have your "first time" multiple times.

That's part of the suffering for him and explicitly touched upon. He can't get that super positive first time in the mansion back, they notice on subsequent loops that he's better then he "should be", which is obviously suspicious.

To the extent there is "bleed" it might be if the witch stink gets worse ever revival, but most people can't notice that.

He could just ask before leaving what the areas are like and for some map. Then join some guild or do some other random shit like when first even came in the world and the reward money should do him good until he finds some way to earn money.
Fucking what. Have you ever so much as done any real hiking yourself navigating with just a map?

Matthew Price

I doubt Ram sympathized with him for being a slacker, because she's very self-aware of her own inferiority to her sister.
I think she's just the much more open and friendly of the two. She would have grown more fond of him regardless of the situation, if anything him being a guest hindered their personal progress.

That would make much more sense. And if it is the case, it's something I feel the show has done a poor job of underlining, actually.
I thought that may be the case myself, but dismissed it because I didn't feel him getting KO'd by a mana-drain would warrant a checkpoint, when usually the only other thing that does is death or progression.

Levi Lewis
Levi Lewis

This god damn it. It's made super obvious that no, she absolutely doesn't retain any memory of him. The only thing he doesn't realize at first is that she is the one who actually healed him.

confide
If he tries the witch fucks him. This too is explicitly covered, although the anime hasn't reached it yet (next ep). He is directly prevented from confiding though, this is not a plot hole. It's part of why people call it a curse, not a super power, and why it irks some of the rest of us to see you keep trying to stuff the MC and story into a typical mold and then get confused when it doesn't work.

Zachary Barnes

The point is, getting a checkpoint is random and he doesn't know when will it happen. Getting knocked by Beatrice doesn't give him checkpoint, it's just a coincidence.

Aiden Morales
Aiden Morales

when usually the only other thing that does is death or progression.
Death doesn't create the checkpoint, it pulls him back to said checkpoint. The checkpoint has to be there first in order to come back to it once dead. Subaru has obviously (I'm an animefag only) not control whatsoever over his curse and those checkpoints are created haphazardly. So far, it's only the second checkpoint (the first being his arrival in the fantasy world, in front of the shopkeeper stand).

I swear to fucking God, we should get someone to make a route chart of Subaru's failures and progress.

Dylan Thomas
Dylan Thomas

Yes, but in the first timeline she saved his daughter with Subaru, well after Subaru's initial conversation with the shop-keep.
In the second (or third, can't remember exactly), he brought up that someone had saved his daughter during that initial conversation.
Which leads me to believe there's some degree of bleed that alters the chronological sequence of events in subsequent timelines based upon his actions in the previous ones. Kind of like a time-hopping reward scheme, as it embodied itself in that circumstance.

Noah Sullivan
Noah Sullivan

I don't get it. MC finds out in this episode he didn't die, so why the fuck is he acting like all the events previous to when he was attacked didn't matter? Surely dying and then reseting everything would allow him to start from scratch, allowing him to see what causes his downfall?

Is this guy daft?

That seems to be what people like OP find confusing, they keep expecting the MC to get whatever power or act the way they expect from normal "2Dland" and then he just... doesn't. Neither he or the other characters are nearly as stereotypical as normal. Everyone else isn't blissfully ignornant/obvious, he isn't mysteriously insightful or powerful, things that would fuck someone over IRL still fuck people over, etc.

So when he makes decisions that totally make realistic sense, you get stupid posts like .

I know, I felt it would be something like an obvious "stage-to-stage" thing.
Stage 1 being the city, the checkpoint the stall. Stage 2 the manor, the checkpoint would logically be his awakening in the manor. But apparently it was after he got drained. Minor mistake, but that clears up what I felt was the show's only gaping plot-hole.

Don't you get it? He can literally ask for all the information he needs for travel off the people.
No he can't. This is just so fucking stupid, what the shit user. You can't find out everything you need for travel in a couple of days info session even in another country let alone another world with fantasy medieval development+magic and monsters. Again, have you ever done any real multi-day on-foot travel even in the woods of America or wherever you're from? It's slow, there are plenty of risks to watch out for even without having to worry about bandits or the equivalent, navigation is a big deal, and we've got way better maps then what existed historically.

Even so it's pretty obvious now they're only coming for him and people in the mansion are way more capable than him anyways.
Nope, this is wrong.

MC doesn't want to die because it is extremely painful and traumatizing.

Yes logically resetting everything would be "right' thing to do but him losing his memories and loss of life is too much for the guy to simply throw it away.

I have no idea what you're talking about given that he's been making multiple attempts to figure out what "causes his downfall", and in fact that was the entire point of this loop and why he chose to be a guest.

So what, is that hand supposed to be Satella's curse?

Or is it a form of her conditional love, where her envy of Subaru confiding to someone else beside her would rip Subaru's heart and kill him?

If that's so, doesn't that makes her quite a yandere?

Dominic Howard

So, do you mean that it was actually Rem that got in the way of Ram in the previous loop? Poor Ram, I hated her at first but I'm starting to feel a bit bad for her.

Cameron Campbell

Since this animu is so predisposed to good old theorizing, I'll toss out that I think Roswal's ordering his death based on how he believes him to be a spy.
He said something along those lines at the end of a previous episode, and it would tie in nicely with what others have brought up about how he becomes a little more suspicious with each redo, as he seems more and more comfortable within a setting he shouldn't be.
Though, that doesn't explain why he's constantly dying on the same night. Because if that were the case, Roswal would note his questionable demeanor and order it sooner.

Charles Ramirez

Or is it a form of her conditional love, where her envy of Subaru confiding to someone else beside her would rip Subaru's heart and kill him?
Who knows. The whole issues is that she is absolutely batshit fucking insane so no one can even really ask.

If that's so, doesn't that makes her quite a yandere?
Sort of? But "yandere" doesn't exactly capture it, people often refer to yanderes as "insane" but they can be quite cooly rational and logical about getting what they want, it's just what they want is twisted and they've got zero limiters when it comes to methods, and sometimes have trouble with empathy. Satella is just loony toons and a big bundle of power and jealousy and desire, barely makes sense to think of her in human terms at all at this point in the story.

At any rate for now she's a black box to him and beyond his reason, he just has to roll with the blows as best he can and comply with the conditions (which are arbitrary and capricious).

Sebastian Flores

Didn't Ram mention that the possibility is small and Subaru wouldn't do harm to them? Then again, there's no one else who can kill him. It must the named character in the mansion.

Unique premise
Groundhog Day (1993)
Has probably been done before that, and has been done to death in anime since. How can you honestly think this premise is original in any way?

Connor Hernandez
Connor Hernandez

His reaction like that is basically integral to the thing working. If Subaru was kind of an introvert, uncharismatic guy the entire thing would not work. He's in an entirely new world, he has to give a shit about a few things inside of it or he would probably just go straight nuts.

Its LN. Its a SAO/Groundhog day rip off. If that's not your thing, don't stick around for it because it won't change.

Chase Kelly
Chase Kelly

Not sure if it's even clear that the idea of "winning" even applies there exactly. Stella may have sublimed into something more like a concept or existence outside the world, wherein she can't even ever really be defeated just sealed away from as direct interference for a while. Reinhardt has world h4x himself, but he's mortal. He might "win" if she showed up in terms of sending her off again, but eventually he'll die and to her it might all be the same from the perspective of being outside of time.

Sorry, but it really should be worth the wait (as always qualifications on the adaption not fucking it up, but so far it's been perfectly functional). A lot of good stuff starts to get rolling. Be happy you don't have to wait a dozen episodes like some series I guess?

Angel Powell
Angel Powell

You can boil fucking any work of literature made in the last couple of thousand years down enough to make it be "generic" if you're stupid. That's not what anyone ever means when they say there's a unique premise, it's all about exactly what the author DOES with a premise, not that nobody in the history of the human race has ever touched upon the premise itself before.

Brayden Wright

I don't think it's ever clarified for certain, but my assumption is that Rem saw him walking around half-dead in the middle of the night in a weakened state while no one was around and took her shot.

Yeah, but who knows. There's also the link between Roswal's chains and Rem's murder tool, if there's anything to be said about that.

Joshua Cook
Joshua Cook

From what I can tell OP is talking specifically about the anime, so anything creative the autor does later is not factoring into him calling it an "unique premise". What part of any of this has been unique at all so far? it has been just fantasy harem + Groundhog day timeloops.
That's not what anyone ever means when they say there's a unique premise, it's all about exactly what the author DOES with a premise, not that nobody in the history of the human race has ever touched upon the premise itself before.
Please enlighten me in what it is that everyone means when they say this is unique.

Sebastian Campbell

There are careers and lines of work where you are constantly exposed to depressing and horrible situations, many involving death. Most people perform terribly in those professions, there are two types of people who are different. The first type are extremely humorless people with very little personality who are focused on rules or some sort of cause. They do not really get impacted by the situations because it just does not register with them. The second type are people who have strong feelings and release those through finding humor in the situations or, when they cannot find humor in the situation, they use parody, self-deprecation, slap-stick, or any other comedic tool, no matter how stupid, to keep going.

I prefer working with the second type, because working 80 hour weeks on tragic situations with serious people is basically hell. Working with comedic people can actually make it morbidly fun.

Sebastian Nguyen

If they included all of his internal monologues the episodes would be even slower.

Hopefully they include them after the next time he dies otherwise he's going to look like he doesn't give two fucks about what's happening.

Lucas Davis
Lucas Davis

You specifically site the Bill Murray film, although the idea of time loops dates back to at least the 1940s, time travel in fiction has been played with since like the 1700s, and who knows if it ever came up in ancient history unrecorded. But in "Groundhog Day", he's in a one day loop where it's triggered no matter what with no greater context, it's not a matter of death (although that does it too). He starts as a jackass, and responds for a while by being a bigger jackass and doing whatever he wants. He then gets desperate and tries to do whatever to escape, including horrible stuff. Finally he gets to "become a good person" and becomes perfect and learns the true spirit of things and gets the girl blah blah, and then that somehow ends the loop and he proposes in a big sugary good end.

None of the details are the same here at all, in the mechanics, characters or results. And again, that's what matters, not that other works in history have touched on the basic concept before. There's no war against an unstoppable enemy like in AYNIK. The fact that the "save point" can shift around and that it's controlled by some other intelligence is different. His own sheer inability is different. Etc.

People like you show up for every single fucking book, show, movie or game ever to proclaim how it's "totally derivative" merely for having some foundational similarity if you simplify enough.

Levi Hall
Levi Hall

I'd say there are more like three types. You forgot that some people just actively get off on danger or bad shit, they love the situations. I don't understand it but it's definitely a thing. Really, 1&3 are both kind of non-normal people who don't react in the same way, for whom the pathos just isn't there. You list the positive way normal people might cope as your second, although the flipside is the miserable depressed people just forcing their way through it which is no fun either.

MC finds out in this episode he didn't die

He doesn't normally die until nightfall of the fifth day. Last episode ended at sundown. He's not going to make it to nightfall to find out he hasn't been cursed.

Ethan Ward
Ethan Ward

I specifically said in other post that it was done even before Groudhog day, I'm using it because it's the best known example.
You could also argue that all works are unique if you focus on the details enough, which is kinda true, but you have to look at how the details add (or not) something interesting to the established concept, and in this case I don't think they really do, at least not yet. Your mileage may vary though.

Why does everyone feel bad for Subaru? He can die indefinitely and he can just start over. If I die then it's game over. He could just go away to somewhere else as soon as he awakes. He could even try to ask Emilia and the loli drill for help. Maybe stabbing the clown guy when he gets in the bath. If he wasn't such a white knight shit he would ignore Emilia and secure his own safety.

Parker Ortiz
Parker Ortiz

Why does everyone feel bad for Subaru?
Because his situation sucks pretty hard.

He can die indefinitely and he can just start over.
First, dying indefinitely is horrible. It's painful and terrifying every single time. Second, it completely isolates him. He cannot "just start over" because how he himself changes means that he can never have things turn out the same way even if he wants to. All his work and effort and luck in building up relationships with other people goes poof each time. It's not just about the negatives user, it's about losing positives. You work hard and learn hard and then never collect.

He could just go away to somewhere else as soon as he awakes.
Abandoning the good people he genuinely likes and wants to help and who are also his best shot at doing decently in a shitty world where he is a total normalfag.

He could even try to ask Emilia and the loli drill for help.
If you mean talking about the loops, no he can't. As far as help then sure, and he does.

Maybe stabbing the clown guy when he gets in the bath.
That would be double retarded, since it'd fuck everything and clown is not responsible anyway. Makes sense it's the sort of idea you'd come up with though.

If he wasn't such a white knight shit he would ignore Emilia and secure his own safety.
All wrong.

Sup Forums, what would you honestly realistically do in Subaru's position?
Following your first two deaths in the mansion.
desu I'd embark upon a string of wacky misadventures in an attempt to discover the truth of my situation by pushing the boundaries as much as possible.
First I'd rape Emilia after Puck went to sleep, then top myself.
Then I'd set the mansion alight, then top myself.
Then I'd rape Beatrice, then die.
And by that time I'd have realized not only that Rem was the killer, but unearthed her motivations, reasoning and any potential Machiavellian plots.

Angel Howard

Better hope you don't get an updated save point during these "wacky misadventures" thus locking in the deaths of the mansion and leaving your stupid ass hanging in the wind.

First I'd rape Emilia after Puck went to sleep
You'd try and then get killed. Emilia is plenty powerful all by herself, actually skilled and experienced with combat, and plenty used to the nastiness that comes from being in a world like that. Unlike you.

Then I'd set the mansion alight
You might try, except it'd be immediately put out by magic, and then you'd be executed. Or worse, magically imprisoned and unable to kill yourself, or even worse imprisoned for long enough for an updated save point.

Then I'd rape Beatrice
You'd barely survive even long enough to reach for her.

Go back to your shitty SI doujins you overweight faggot.

Name me one anime that does time loop in a video game stage based mechanic, where you must repeat a certain loop until a specific goal is achieved. Then it saves you and places you in the next stage.

Haruhi, Groundhog's day, and Steins;Gate certainly doesn't fit the bill.
All You Need Is Kill (Edge of Tomorrow) is the closest, and even that's not the same as it's a single loop and not stage based.

Nicholas Ramirez

All You Need Is Kill (Edge of Tomorrow) is the closest, and even that's not the same as it's a single loop and not stage based.
AYNIK came up earlier and is one of the examples with some elements that fit, the story we see is single loop but the overall plot is more sequential, every single battle is its own potential loop(s), and the number is semi-arbitrary. I think bigger fundamental differences though include what the MC "can take with them" between loops and the overall issue of setting. Some more magic loop settings let somebody directly carry stuff over between loops, either in terms of physical items they store somehow or in terms of them growing their magic power or combat ability or whatever. AYNIK kind of takes a tech angle to that: technically someone in the loop carries over nothing at all except knowledge like in a restricted setting. But they've got power armor that normally has potential that far exceeds what any human could realistically learn to do with it, particularly given the setting. That creates a way for a character to "get stronger" because they can bring out more and more of the armor's capabilities.

The battle situation also in turn makes a super skilled pilot with loop capability directly ultra valuable and important, which means they'll have major power support automatically. They also are free to (and do) share that information, which in turn feeds into further support. Finally, they know the exact victory condition and how to achieve it, so they have the ability to loop pretty arbitrarily.

REZ diverges a lot there. Subaru has no way to become significantly stronger. He doesn't get to get much in the way of outside support, he can't share freely, and there's no clear unifying opponent. I like both series but they really serve to illustrate that a simple concept ("Groundhog Loop!") can lead to radically different situations with different characters and settings. Higurashi, Madoka, etc are all differently interesting.

Colton Edwards
Colton Edwards

I don't understand it
How? I mean I can understand that fear and anxiety holds most people back from it, but how can you not understand it at a basic intellectual level? You even said that the pathos isn't there for them. It's just exactly that, they have dulled emotions due to genetics or life shit happening to them, and they search for strong emotions just as there are people (most) that due to genetics and their life experience are vegetals absolutely dead inside and take an elevator/lift to go from one floor to the one directly above. As simple as that. Probably this was just an expression and you actually have no problem getting it, but my autism still went off

Luke Brooks
Luke Brooks

I guess I wrote that poorly. I mean, I know how fucking endorphins work, I know how the feel of overcoming risk and challenges can be intoxicating even in small cases, I understand intellectually why people love that stuff and put time and risk at it. I've done some things others probably wouldn't. I more meant that I can't personally get into the mindset of people who love stuff like downhill mountain biking or high ski jumping and the like, I've even tried lesser versions and for me the risk/reward is too extreme to be fun.

But I don't judge people who like it either, I don't need it to "make sense" to me to recognize it's a thing anymore then I need to "understand" people who like foods I don't. It's fine, but it is also neurologically outside the baseline. Most people don't go out of there way and get a high from that kind of thing. Again, don't get me wrong, I'm glad there are people who do because they've pushed forward humanity. You have to be a bit "crazy" to go against the world, and even if a lot of that stuff results in death/failure the successes are worthy of the praise and rewards. I'm just saying it's distinct from either those who are purely goal oriented and just don't feel about it at all, or those who do feel it, but do so negatively and are just trying to cope.

Anthony Morris

That hasn't been confirmed. When Subaru gets told about those Bad Ends, it's stated it's unknown if they're just simulations or real.

Jonathan Lopez
Jonathan Lopez

Though, the show's nailing a pretty unique premise well. So I'm hoping at some point it's revealed to truly be a straight-up coping mechanism, and after a string of brutal, unavoidable deaths, we get punished Subaru being harrowed as fuck.
All of this is said as someone who has no prior knowledge of the LNs, so apologies if I stated the obvious/missed the point a little. But, thoughts?

He's gonna off himself soon because of what happens but he can't fix it because no control over his save point.

Jayden Hughes
Jayden Hughes

Yeah we okay then

Chase Evans
Chase Evans

So how was it established that he cannot talk about the loops again?
Manga has already gone that far and some of the pages were posted starting at . But it should get covered next episode I think so you can just wait to see it animated, the author doesn't leave it hanging thankfully since that would be dumb. Subaru is not some autist or bent on world domination or whatever, he's got some people he likes, so it's completely obvious that he'd try to tell someone else once it became clearer to him that he was utterly in over his head, that this was going to be a continuous thing rather then a one-off loop, and that he had no special MC h4x coming this way either.

Being actively prevented from doing so is actually a pretty key different between REZ and a lot of other timeloop works, because revealing it tends to be a central part of getting people outside the loop to help you out and treat you well and to keep you from becoming as much of an object of suspicion. It starts playing a role almost right away too, since it's part of the core reason he can't explain himself and about how he knows what he does.

Oliver Roberts
Oliver Roberts

The movie was a pretty mediocre adaption, though by Hollywood standards I guess it could have been worse.
