It's really funny how quickly Subaru falls in love.

I mean, the fourth loop doesn’t count, because he spends most of it in bed or with Beatrice. So he really only had three loops with the maids. That’s, what, twelve days? Twelve days cutting vegetables, sewing clothes, gardening, reading and writing, and he loves them? Bearing in mind that he learned not long ago that for pretty much all twelve of those days, they were playing him like a fiddle.

So naturally, when Subaru declares his love for them, I’m just embarrassed for him and for Emilia too.

William King

He's a self-loathing, cripplingly depressed autist who just wants to be loved, so he latches onto anyone who shows him hospitality, and confuses it for love.

Juan Brown

cripplingly depressed
No he's not. He may be depressed, but not "cripplingly"

Christian Nguyen

Nigga spent half a week sitting in bed feeling like shit in the fourth loop until best Loli dragged him into her library for the night, I suppose.
But still, that's some serious fucking depression there.

Tyler Wood

Wait, he loves the maids? I thought he loved Emilia? I just saw this as an exaggeration by the translator.

Camden Evans

He loves Rem and Emelia. He said something about taking Rem as his second wife if Emilia let him, because his heart belongs to Emilia but he also loves Rem.

Reminder that the wise magical negro of the book did nuffin wrong.
400+ years ago: 6 witches roamed the world. They were calamity manifested, although they had no ill intent.
Ekidna, the Witch of Greed created the Sanctuary to shelter oppressed half-demihumans who had no where to go. She used the Sanctuary as a laboratory for various experiments including immortality. Ekidna creates Betty as her daughter spirit, and takes in Roswaal the First as her apprentice.

400 years ago: Satella became the 7th witch, and was driven mad. She killed all the other 6 witches and devasted the world.
Sage, Dragon, and Sword Saint defeated her but was unable to perish her existence. They sealed her.
The Dragon sheltered Ekidna's spirit in the Sanctuary, so she can continue to exist as a ghost. He did this to have a counter-measure in case Satella's seal is broken. Roswaal continues the research of immortality and devices magic to take over the body of his family line to exist forever, and vows to resurrect Ekidna. Betty becomes the guardian of the library, waiting for her mother's call to free her from her position.

100+ years ago: Emilia is born between a unnamed human and a elf. She is raised by her aunt. Emilia befriends Betelgeuse, who is a Witch Cult member but is kind and generous and harbors feelings towards Emilia's aunt.
However, Witch of Vainglory and Bishop of Greed attacks the elven village to take Emilia.
In the ensuing battle her aunt is killed, Betelgeuse is driven mad and Emilia's powers goes out of control and freezes the entire elven haven.

Leo Miller
Leo Miller

It kind of is an exaggeration, he likes them.

The show really is rushed, it would make more sense if it had been looping over a six week period or he was killed more than four times.
It'd be a long ass manga without a montage scene every 4 chapters though.

Demi-Human War: A war that lasted for ten years roughly 50 to 40 years earlier. Due to the actions of the Witch of Envy, Half Elves and other half races were considered to be heretical, with the prejudice extending to Demi Humans themselves. Amidst all of that, a Demi Human village was involved in a conflict with a Human village, and at a peace conference those sent from the castle were assassinated, leading both sides to claim that it was the other side's fault. The conflict eventually grew until it spread across Lugnica, lasting until the Demi Humans admitted that it wouldn't benefit anyone to keep on fighting, though they still claimed not to be responsible for the assassination. The decision to end the war was considered to have brought about by the Sword Saint's actions. Damage from the war existed deep within people and people still harbor prejudice against half races even if it isn't spoken aloud.

They die a gorillian times until they get Rienhardt involved to kill gluttony and greed. Turns out Subaru can absorb their essence and make their power his own. If I remember correct, which I probably don't, the Bishop of Greed basically haunts him and drives Subaru even more into insanity.

This entire LN is nothing but suffering, the author is a true sadist so buckle up.

Over exaggerated.

He likes them as family. That's the truth right there.

Here's the thing. Subaru, for all intents and purposes has been really damn suspicious since he came to the mansion.

In the first timeline, it's still not that bad. But starting on the second timeline, that's when his "suspicious meter" started to be fucking retarded. Remember the episode where he came back to life. He suddenly knows where shit is and Ram noticed that. Now that is much more seen as well in the 3rd time line. Now he really stinks of the Witch's scent. Couple that with him still acting like nothing is wrong and walks around like he knows where shit is and stuff. Do you honestly think he is just someone who's innocent?

He's stranded in a crazy fantasy world where he has no idea what's going on. These two taught him to read, write, cook, clean, etc. and actually made him feel like he could belong here. That's the kind of love he meant. I don't know why most people seeing this scene interpreted it romantically. He outright says he loves them for all the things they gave him, and his real breakdown begins when Rem says they hated him this whole time.

Yep. He dies a shit ton during Arc 4. Like his death count skyrockets from a couple dozen to a couple hundred. It's a pretty hopeless situation.

Nicholas Rogers
Nicholas Rogers

the problem with his character is that he is completely unbelievable.

Zachary Williams

Bearing in mind that he learned not long ago that for pretty much all twelve of those days, they were playing him like a fiddle.
That wasn't completely true. Girls who secretly despise you don't do nice things like give genuine smiles or hold your hands to calm you down after a nightmare.

Brody Brooks
Brody Brooks

I guess this is the "ask stupid questions that were probably already answered" thread.

So why exactly didn't Subaru just say he didn't know anything about Rem's death when he was in the room with everyone else? He said something about how he thought Rem was the shaman, but I don't see how that relates to him claiming innocence?

I pretty much understood everything else, but that point doesn't make sense.

Caleb Cruz

Jackson Myers

I mean, before she retroactively becomes an only child.

Sebastian Moore

So basically he thought that someone is supposed to die after the fourth night, and since it wasn't him, he's responsible for Rem's death?

Brody Collins
Brody Collins

There's no reason at all to believe there's even going to be a bittersweet ending to this, is there?

Of course not user. It won't be a bittersweet ending - it'll be a tragic ending.

Subaru was never the hero of this story, that role is given to Reinhardt. This is about Satella building a villain from her husbando from the ground-up, and it will end in a fittingly tragic sense. The best-case scenario is that we have something like wherein everyone survives, but are totally broken spiritually.

Other possibilities includes having Subaru being stuck in this timeloop as Satella's plaything for an eternity. (i.e. after the cast's final climactic confrontation with Satella he winds up right back at the very beginning again, repeat forever).

Benjamin Cook
Benjamin Cook

like the author controlling when the save points come up instead of the story.

Satella is watching everything through Satella's eyes and is controlling the save points for maximum despair.

Camden Rodriguez

Satella is pretty much the author. I hate the type of stories where the author places a god self insert to make his story easier to write. Satella's actions make no sense, why does she want to give despair to the man she likes? Even for a yandere this is retarded.

Noah Gutierrez
Noah Gutierrez

Satella building a villain from her husbando from the ground-up,

She's so far gone from Yandere I'd even rather have that fucking moth girl trapping me in a timeloop instead.

This bitch doesn't love him, she loves making him suffer and twisting the dagger even harder claiming she's doing it all for him.

I want to believe at the very least Subaru will find a way to stick it to her but it's clear his role in this story is cosmic butt monkey. The most horrific case of that. In the end even if she does somehow brainwash him into serving her he won't last any longer than he has before even with all the power he's accruing.

Robert Powell

Ian Morgan
Ian Morgan

why does she want to give despair to the man she likes? Even for a yandere this is retarded.

She wants to break him so that he'll be able to be with her forever, despite her basically being Satan and Hitler combined.

That, or trying to break him is the way that she confirms his love for him, i.e. she fell in love with his courage and stalwartness in the face of despair in another timeline.

Makes sense to me anywho.

Besides the real problem is that very few women are capable of exploiting godlike power and are more than happy to waste it just grooming someone like that.

implaying men doesn't do them same towards their girlfriend / wife

Hunter Russell

This. I can confirm most of my girlfriends will date terrible (but physically hot) people and try to warp them into their own tastes using sex and love as an incentive, then get all upset and cranky when, surprise surprise, they don't change or their relationship breaks down down-the-line when they regress. They'll date people with hobbies they actively hate, then try to make it a 'it's me or [x]!' thing.

It doesn't work like that. You have to like them already, but most women think that way for some twisted, warped reason. I even find myself doing it sometimes.

Ryan Rivera

She wants to be the one to do the reveal at the end of the story and mindbreak his friends. Probably after a major schism and Subaru is left alone with his vegetable waifu that everyone thinks is just his imaginary friend.

She's the witch of ENVY. What did you expect?

Nolan Russell

Facts:

1) Subaru is a pawn of the witch. It does not matter that he is doing her bidding without his knowledge.

2) The witch is using him by picking the save points. She is not choosing outcomes at random-- she has specific objectives that Subaru must accomplish. The witch will not let him take alternatives. He is already accomplishing her goal.

3) Him revealing his power would make him a suspect and make all of his goals harder to accomplish. If others knew about his power they would isolate him, kill him, or prevent him from doing anything. He smells like the witch already, and if they learned "he gets to repeat time until he achieves an outcome" they would easily realize that the outcomes are things the Witch wants.

Speculation

- The Witch's goal is to break the seal and to use Subaru to accomplish this. To do that she needs to get the power of the Sage, the Dragon, and the Sword Saint.

- Subaru is the Sage (or will become one by absorbing powers)

- Reinhardt is the Sword Saint.

- She wants to get Emilia to become the contractor with the Dragon.

These three people are key in her plot to gain her own freedom. If they are aware of her plan, they will be much harder to manipulate.

She is also the Jealous witch, she wants possession and dominion over him. Taking over Emilia is a likely goal.

Joseph Stewart

I gotta say.

This is a hell of a twist on the idea of auto/quick-saving.

Parker Thompson

Honestly I hope the author let's Subaru have some kind of happy end.
This shit isn't fair to the poor kid.
Even if he just somehow gets Emilia locked in his loops with him or something, it's better than being all alone like this.
Kid deserves a happier end than most fictional characters in recent history already. I mean, he's been in the new world for what, a fucking week? and he's already having PTSD nightmares.

You have to understand that 90% of people on this board have literally never had a conversation that lasted more than 5 minutes, or have had a deep enough friendship with anyone where they would understand this context of Subaru's familial love.

Depends on how well equiped the undead is. Subaru with his magic and a sword will win against most pure melee fighters. The undead has status relieving miracles attuned, then the undead wins.

What I read is that the parallel universe that was shown to Subaru may or may not actually exist. The person who showed it don't know it either. I'm not sure myself though, just reading off of Sup Forums here.

We don't know yet. It's subject to endless conjecture. There are theories that she's Emilia from another timeline, and Subaru was initially abducted (in that timeline) by the former witch of Envy, or one of countless other theories.

We'll find out in another few volumes, I suspect.

I'm at Arc 3. It's mentally draining and I decided to go to Sup Forums for some spoiler talks. How do you guys read this and not get your mind fucked up? Granted I just knew about this series like, 7 weeks ago and just read the novel for 5 days now, but still.

Andrew Campbell
Andrew Campbell

I think we may actually get a surprisingly happy end after everything, but that there's going to be a lot of suffering and twist and turns on the way.

The title itself is a bit of a clue-- it has the theme of starting from scratch. The intro is called "Redo" and the ED is called "STYX Helix" (referring to the constant back and forth crossing of life and death).

I fully expect there to be a speech with the title dropped. Because while the story does have a lot of bad outcomes and is pretty horrific, there is a chance to redo everything and start from scratch and it's a key theme.

It may also be one for the Jealous Witch. Because before she was known as the Jealous witch, Satella was actually described to be kind, and the Jealous witch was a different aspect/personality of her. So even she might get a chance at redemption. Satella may actually be Emilia, or the positive aspect of the Jealous witch.

This is all speculation and just my thoughts with my current knowledge, but I wouldn't be surprised if the finale was him going all the way back to the beginning and getting a final redo of every single arc, leading him to the absolute best ending.

But until then, lots of suffering.

Christian Howard

This show is written for masochists and read by masochists.

So let me get this straight.

This originally a WN then got adapted to a LN which then got adapted to a manga and anime. Then the LN translations got taken down but were barely done in the first place anyways right? So how far are the WN translations and is there some blog site for it?

Anthony Moore

As long as Betty keeps Subaru sane and he gets to win the girl in the end, everything will be Daijobu, I feel.

Tyler Sanchez

Nah, Satella will shit him back out in front of the Appa vendor at the end for MAXIMUM SUFFERING.

He'll be stuck in the greater time loop forever. Unable to even die, he'll continue wandering, trying to find a way out, only to discover that he's stuck there as Satella's plaything, forced to dance to her tune or suffer a pain worse than death. Forever. Endlessly. His purpose, memories, beliefs all gradually become indistinct in his despair over the years, and eventually, he gives up trying and stops thinking, stops trying, and becomes the villain. He starts destroying himself, the world, and eventually his former alter-dimensional friends in anger of the futility of the world with all the powers he's absorbed from the bishops (Satella would supply the mana), and at that moment, he'd finally stop looping, and Satella would live with her mindbroken husbando for the rest of eternity. He won't ever be able to go back, even after realizing that he's become a monster - he's destroyed everything he ever believed in and loved, and so, he gives in. He stops thinking about the reality of his situation, and fills his heart with Satella. Satella and Subaru live out the rest of eternity as tyrants in love.

Remember kids, this LN is about maximizing suffering for Subaru. Not about happy endings.

No, you see user.
Putting him out in the old world again is the worst ending you can give the kid.
All that love and heartbreak and pain only to learn it was for absolutely nothing.
With the appa vendor end he could possibly break the cycle and get a happy end.
If she just kicks him out of the time loop and back into his Hikki lifestyle he'll never even find love like he did in the new world, and he'll die alone because he didn't dick Satella and only Satella.

With the appa vendor end he could possibly break the cycle and get a happy end.

No the point is that it's entirely futile. There is no happy end. He's entirely within Satella's walled-garden, there is no success or failure, because those things are meaningless when Satella can kill you instantly at any moment, or almost any of the other characters if they act out of line.

Just to be kicked out of his timeloop wouldn't be anywhere near as depressing as being damned to an eternal existence bereft of hope, repeating the same events over and over and over and over again, eventually being broken between the gears of time and becoming the very evil he sought to defeat.

Nolan King

To be fair, there is a reasonable chance that on the first loop he didn't smell as much like the witch. Rem/Ram might have actually liked him that time.

Use google translate bro, haha. But seriously, just buy Genki I and II from your nearest book store or Amazon, read all of it. Get some software like rikai, kanjitomo, or whatever shit, and then start reading.

In the beginning you'll stumble a lot and wrongly comprehend the subjects, but you'll get the gist of the book you're reading eventually and before long, you'll be able to understand the story enough.

It seems like there may be delay for episode 8-10. 3 weeks is enough to finish Genki 1+2 and start reading with software crutches.

Honestly, as much as Subaru suffers, I don't think Satella means it. She wants things to go her way, but I don't think she wants him dying all the time and all this.
Her Husbando just isn't the smartest tool in the shed, and she has to constantly bail him out.
At least, that's what I'm feeling with it.

Christian Hill

Thomas Walker

Like, she loves Subaru, not "broken husk of a man who just doesn't care anymore" Subaru, right?
So why would she purposefully put him through all this torture on purpose?
The way I see it, the reason the loop curse hurts him if he tries to mention it is because Satella doesn't want to get him in even worse trouble, as something like that screams "magical lobotomy" if you mention it in public.
She might be a little nutty, but I'd wait until we get to meet her personally before we go on the "SHE WANTS TO MIND BREAK SUBARU LIKE MUH FATALPULSE DOUJINS" route at all times.
All we know she could be sweet as a peach and is trying her hardest to make sure her Husbando survives to meet her.

I don't know why I come to these threads when I'm trying so hard to avoid spoilers. Maybe I'm just trying to defend it because I like it so much (I actually like it quite a bit), but I can't really accurately refute other people's points when I know about as much as Subaru. But some people are retards who can't distinguish familial love or how limited Subaru's perspective is, so I guess I can't help myself.

Stop getting baited. But I really can't say that considering people from other places actually can't differentiate from the two as well. I was really surprised by that. I mean, now I know why shows just blatantly try to let their characters wear their emotions on a sleeve. A lot of people can't get into context really.

Evan Hernandez
Evan Hernandez

So Subaru getting kidnapped is Arc 4? So we're not gonna see it animated? Thats a shame, apparently it has one of the greatest moments of the series, and I wanted to see it. But then again, I guess this is doing reasonably well, and Kadokawa is definitely pushing it really fucking hard, so I'd bet a S2 is a lot more likely then other cases. It probably is just gonna take another year or two for the current arc and maybe the following one to wrap up. I'm not a LNfag and haven't read any real spoilers though, so what do I know.

Wyatt Stewart
Wyatt Stewart

Edgey is the most retarded and misused buzzword. If something isn't moeshit or idolshit and is slightly serious you all spam ow the edge. Before this episode you were all yelling "this isn't serious enough, i hate that travolta pose!" and then things get more serious and subaru starts to understand the gravity of his situation you all yell le edge meme. Ypu faggots don't know what you want. And I'm not even going to humour the autists who have no comprehension of the idea of platonic love.

Gabriel White
Gabriel White

fucking gr8 first three episodes
now MC dies every episode after doing absolutely nothing, and what little bit of plot development that happens means nothing once he dies
the comedy is just shit too once the same jokes are repeated every episode

Why is this shit liked so much? Is it supposed to get better on the 15th episode?

Ayden Murphy
Ayden Murphy

It's funny because I think one of the reveals will be that before the witch meddled with the world's future, Felt was originally destined to be queen.

So the original story would have been about Reinhardt and Felt. A master swordsman and a flat blonde loli princess. I mean, they are the standard fantasy duo with Reinhardt being the perfect protagonist.

However, the witch killed Felt's family in an attempt to kill Felt, who survived. So now Felt is a contestant and Reinhardt is her knight and they have the potential to course correct history.

But of course, the Witch has other plans and so our protagonist and Emilia take their place.

Considering how messy Arc 3 is, and from people here who told me in this very thread that Arc 3 is nothing and that Arc 4 is even more fucked up, I don't think there will be a Season 2 of this.

Think of it like this, list any mindfuck anime you've known. Does any of that have a Season 2? That's a bad analogy but still, I don't think commissioning a Season 2 would be a profitable decision for the commitee.

I'd be highly surprised and welcomed if I'm to be proven wrong in the next 2 or so years, but as it stands, having read Arc 3, I don't think this will get a Season 2.

Honestly I hope Rein gets shat on by a loop, really fucking hard.
As much as I dislike how absolutely heartwrenching some of this shit ends up, that guy's hiding something. He's just too perfect.
That being said, I have my reasonings to think Clowndick is part of the reason Emilia starts drifting from Subaru later on. Remember how Clown commented on how if you lost your insignia you lost your rite to run for ruler?
Now think who all knows Emilia lost her insignia.
He's probably blackmailing her.

Reminder that:

The show will be delayed for 3 weeks because of TENNIS

Kadokawa bought Yen Press so that this series will have english translations. Also the reason why there are no LN translations in the wild.

Someone in Kadokawa loves this series for some reason, that they skipped other stories that were higher in rankings and sure to make profit. Instead they somehow ok'd to animate this.

If you're somewhat serious on that, here's my post on the whole learning Japanese thing Basically, the only thing you have to be dedicated at and power-through is when you learn the fundamentals. After that it's just reading with software crutches. You won't understand a lot but you'll get better with time. Then you either read a lot and get better, or you give up.
Re Zero is a long-ass novel, you'll get through beginners level of japanese comprehension for sure, just from reading this.

Had I known about Re Zero from before the anime started, I would've been sure it will never have an anime adaptation. Solely based on the preconception that most anime of this kind only get 12 episodes, and there is no way to condense 3 arc into 12 episodes.

12 episodes finishing only on the second Arc is also not going to be a good promotion because there is very little world-building in the first 2 arcs, and the story basically only moved along 1 week.
They must've been pretty confident with the possibility of Re:Zero appeal to commissioned a 25 episodes anime. I wouldn't have thought that it'd be possible.

I appreciate the post about learning Nip, but I have been down the rune grind road, its just I stopped a few years ago after a few months in because I decided to go to college, and juggling learning a second language that was irrelevant to my studies (my college has no language credit or courses besides Spanish, French, Italian, and German) didn't seem like I was gonna be able to focus. Unfortunately as well, I've decided to start German recently instead of Nip, so I'm twice as screwed. I'll keep it in mind though for the promised day.

Ehh neat i guess, did they even localise manga as well? I'm sure that would make more money for them than selling the LN.

Goodluck. I would say if you have little time, it's always better to just spend more time reading and less anki-ing. Even if you can only read x amount of pages in x amount of hour.

Rezero rides on Bokumachi hype. Also adapted by the studio which does S;G. That alone is already a big advertisement.

That shit sold like 3k so can hardly seeing it being despised there not to mention it boosted the fuck out of the manga sales.

Austin Robinson

sold like 3k
good

That's fucking bottom of the barrel shit sales right there.

Of course it boosted the manga sales for those that never got into the series. Always has been that way. But the reaction the same and people were so dissapointed about it.

The author is also infamous for always failing in properly doing endings.

The overall reaction from readers was:

"The author doesn't know how to end the manga."
"As expected of the author, failed again."
"The the second part of the story doesn't make sense."
"The first half was so strong, why did it end up this way?"

Why the fuck do you think they were clamoring for the studio to change the ending?

The reaction was the same in the west. The second part sucked ass so bad it was funny seeing people call it a masterpiece halfway through its run.

I wouldn't be surprised if we make it further than people think.

Quite frankly, there is a lot of stuff in the WN that should be cut. Some of it was for the LN, but there are even more bad ideas and other things that just really have no place in the story or are poorly timed.

There is also a lot of redundant content. Multiple chapters/loops have nearly the exact same point and it becomes torture porn for a bit. That could be alleviated by just summarizing loops or doing a montage. Yes, it will have less of an effect, but it also will not be nearly as fatiguing as doing that many loops would be. It would also be able to off-screen or imply more of the brutality that they cannot show.

I also do not doubt that a second season is a real possibility. There will be more content for people to buy and this series has a lot of potential. There is also the potential tie-ins for a video game that I wouldn't underestimate, since this premise is very much a more anime mainstream take on Dark Souls, with great possibilities for merchandise tie ins and Kadokawa already owns From Software.

Even if they don't go the video game route, there's a lot of great merchandising opportunities and if the uptick from Ep7 carries over then I wouldn't be surprised for this to be a cash cow, through Manga, LN, BD promotion.

Translating LNs is a lot more work. With anime and manga, it's sometimes easy to tell when a translation is wrong because there's a visual element to the media, but with regular books, the reader is left to the mercy of the translator for the everything of the medium (except for the 1 or 2 illustrations in each chapter for LNs).

If I were White Fox I'd find a way for sure to at least just delay it for a few hours instead of 3 weeks.

Show was hovering between top 400-600 in rankings. Then suddenly ep7 happens as is now at top 92.

Bentley King

It's not about which is harder to translate it's the fact that once something is localised only LNfags are the ones who pussy out and get rid of their shit. Like the manga for RE zero is still getting updates despite it being localised like the LN.

Robert Harris

Maybe it will hurt more of the officials decided to delete their fantranslation?

I'm reasonably convinced this three week delay is just being parroted with no legitimate basis. I've seen nip links thrown around but I have yet to see any user who could actually read it react.

Subaru wins hands down.

Every time the chosen undead gets Victory Achieved, Subaru just rezzes and they go at it again. Now, the same is true if Subaru wins, but the difference is, Subaru isn't controlled by a player. The player controlling the undead can ragequit the match. Subaru can't.

Luke Reed

My understanding is that translating LNs also has a lot more legal repercussions and dangers then just translated manga anonymously/with a trip, dumping it here and then posting it on batoto. For LNs you have to host them somewhere, so you're easier to find, and theres a legitimate worry that you'll receive a lawsuit or cease and desist. I don't actually know dick though, this is all assumption from previous cancellations and stuff in my time, though I will say I haven't given half a shit about LNs until a few years ago, so I'm not well versed in its translation processes and defenses.

Bentley Anderson

That's actually something done well. It should be conspicuous to the viewer that he never talks about or thinks about home. It is not his goal at all.

Because he hates his home life and his own situation in the real world. That is why he does not want to go back.

He wants to live a good life in the new world.

Not everyone cares all that much about Earth that they would not consider alternatives.

Particularly a shut-in who hadn't been alone with a girl since elementary school.

Luke Clark

Manga has had a bad rep of bad official translations, so fans usually delicate more of their time to fix what the translation industry is ruining.

I guess some LNfags don't see the same thing with LNs as mangafags do with manga, though. LNs aren't as popular as manga, so any translation might have potential.

By LNfags you mean the people that have the ability to translate them? It takes more work to translate LN, less readers, and publishers and licensors are as aggressive, if not more, than manga publishers so, when it's licensed in the US, might as well just drop it. It's not worth the hassle most of the time bro.

Nathaniel Ramirez

The legal repercussions are the same, but for some reason LN Translators know ass about how to hide their identities. They post their real email (attached to their real names) on their translation blog for people to contact them, and then they use their main paypal account for donations so that they can be easily tracked, etc. I chalk it down to the fact that almost no one actually read LNs (even translated ones) until just a few years ago so the TLs for LNs are still figuring out basic shit like this.

Manga scanlators have websites and host their own translations too (which are then usually uploaded to manga aggregators shortly after).

And then there's the sheer amount of text to translate. An LN chapter has honestly probably close to a thousand times the text that a manga chapter has. Add that to the fact that LNs are less popular than manga because manga is easy for slowfags and casualfags to get into, which results in less Epeen.

Eli Campbell

http://sukebei.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=127657 + find the patch yourself.

The plot is mediocre but Yuzusoft is the best at organic character interaction and making the VN, even the common route feel puposeful and keeping you engaged. Noble Works was also great, barring the plot. Generally, their games are the only ones that give me that Majikoi magical feeling these days.

Their VNs are like the antithesis to Hoshizora or Grisaia, which has episodic filler after filler after filler for 95% of the common route, followed up with another few hours of filler in the heroine routes then actual plot. Well-written filler, but blatant copy & pasted filler nonetheless. Hoshizora felt like a 15-20 hour plot stretched into a 50 hour one with chronically reused jokes.

Everything is translated and released except the second half of the Miu route, which is being completed by Staircase Subs or something like that.

There's 4 or so other routes you can do in the mean time, so it's no major loss.

Otherwise, Noble Works is fully translated. Can't speak to the accuracy of it, but it's readable and at least passably decent.

... I smiled a bit at that.

I think it's because of her willingness to shelter Subaru and her awareness that he actually does need her help.

Something to note is that Emilia does not help Subaru at all and does not defend him or negotiate for him when he is under threat by Roswaal and Ram. She sort of sidelines it.

Meanwhile, Betty is ready to throw down on a fight that she is probably unable to win.

I am glad that she contracts with Subaru, their dialogues are pretty good and it will be nice to have that continue past this arc. I sort of wonder if they intend to keep Ram engaged in the plot, but she almost seems a bit like a dead end in terms of the possible things to do with her character.

Meanwhile, there's a whole cast of princesses and knights-- can't wait to see all the designs. But for now, Betty is truly best girl.

Jackson Brooks

Betty end when?

Since she seems so best girl, second only to Rem, she's gotta be the next one to die in a horrible fashion. Wiped out of existence? Already done that, so I guess she's going to have to die in a brutal and tortuous fashion after being raped? Tease and taunt her about her powerlessness while reducing her to breeding sow? Twist her soul so that she's a shadow of her former self?

The possibilities are endless for potential suffering. It's a shame we can only have one.

Maybe Satella loves/loved Subaru's dad, not Subaru? Perhaps this is part of a gambit to lure him back into the world, and she both hates Subaru for being born from another woman, but loves him for being his dad's child? That contradiction creates a situation wherein she protects him from death, but forces him to suffer.

Don't you guys feel like it's kind of odd that, out of everyone, he was abducted into this world? Don't you feel like that the background we got in terms of Subaru's insecurities about his father ought to manifest in some way, shape or form in the future?

It's the only way that things can make sense. There's no reason for Satella to love Subaru directly, and there's no reason or way for Subaru to have been in Satella's world unless it's one of those infinity loops wherein Subaru's actions, guided by Satella, turns Emilia into Satella after his death, and, in an effort to save him, repeats it, but if he stops following the beaten path too much, a temporal parodox would be created, and so she has to force him back with the only weapon she has - pain, death, and generally, forcing a repeat.

It's all conjecture.

She's not just dead user. She's a twisted, broken soul who only exists inside of Gluttony, who no one remembers or can even see except for Subaru.

They go over that in the fourth arc when he's captured by the cult. Beatrice's response to him killing himself cemented her as best surviving girl.

so... rem is another satella in the making? twisted girl who are broken and love subaru?

Nope. Subaru actually meets the Witch of Envy and the first thing she says to him is I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you

She is completely in love with Suabru and only him. Her "shadow" basically goes in a frenzy when it recognizes him.

It wouldn't work out. The only way she could stay with Subaru is if she somehow breaks her contract with Rosewaal.

Clowndick needs to die.
Clearly.
Besides fucker tried to kill both of them already. That's probably grounds for contract breaking.

No. She's not even alive. She's just a soul that exists inside of Gluttony, essentially powerless.

Even if Subaru were to free her somehow and also recover her soul amongst the tens of thousands of souls, it'd still be broken and twisted from it's time spent inside Gluttony. She still loves Subaru, but she's gone from utterly deredere to utterly yandere. It's basically futile.

She's altogether a different existence than Satella, who chose to become a witch of her own volition. She only went mad much later, and apparently she was a lovely, kind person before she lost her mind, just like Beetlejuice.

Oh, really? Were the other characters around to hear her say that she loves him for maximum suffering? So much for that theory then.

WHY ISN'T CLOWNDICK FUCKING DEAD IN THE WN YET? JESUS FUCK!

....fuck i dont know what subaru reaction will be if rem is back as a broken and twisted version of hers then..

i guess if you can handle a yandere crazy powerful witch you can handle a crazed Oni yandere aswell?

I'd say it's more likely the chosen undead.

Let's say the chosen undead wins the first bout, then subaru revives by going back in time. The primary difference in this kind of loop is a cumulative mental strain on subaru, and perhaps an increase in subaru's fighting skill.

This loop will perpetuate several times until subaru manages to kill the chosen undead once. At this point, the chosen undead will revive at a bonfire or something, completely refreshed, with some more insight into subaru's fighting style. He'll probably kill subaru easily because of the latter's fatigued state. Subaru then goes back in time with more mental strain and more skill.

Subaru's method of revival causes a cumulative mental strain that persists throughout the entire encounter. The chosen undead's frustration only accumulates up until the point where subaru gets killed once per time loop.

Assuming that both aren't overwhelmingly more powerful than the other, and both have unlimited revives, it's much more likely that the chosen undead will win through attrition of mental fatigue.

Imagine fighting a boss in that you have to kill a hundred times, who gets harder each time, and once you die, you go back to the start. Not to mention that you get more and more tired don't get more heals or resources as the fight progresses. Subaru will have to go through many more of these cycles than the chosen undead would, and because his mental fatigue only accumulates, he'd be more likely to give up before the chosen undead hollows.

By the time, for example, that subaru is able to kill the chosen undead 10 times in a row, he'd probably have to have fought the chosen undead at least a hundred times. And the moment he loses once, all of his progress resets and he has to do it all again. Due to the nature of the time loop, the chosen undead will experience it again as if it were his first time, and as a result will be less likely to give up first.

Like somebody else said, the witch would probably drop a checkpoint after chosen is downed for the first time.

Huh? He get captured during the 3rd arc not 4th one. 4th arc doesn't even involve the Witch Cult, it's about Subaru and Emilia visiting the Witch of Greed and then later fighting off Elsa in 2nd half.

Still, in that case, subaru would still get progressively more fatigued as he keeps winning, while the chosen undead will be revived at peak form each time. Even if the save point gets updated after each win, eventually subaru will be too physically fatigued to be capable of winning no matter how skilled he is or how much he knows about the chosen undead's fighting style.

Garfiel was with him. The two of them have a hell of a time trying to run and escape from her. As expected, having Satella running around was bad news. A lot of people die during the small moment she was let out. As for Garfiel, all while telling Subaru how much she really loves him, Satella brutally kills him. His body is torn to pieces and spread across the plaza.

As for Satella, a lot of information about her is revealed in these few chapters. We find out that she truly does love Subaru to an insane level. In regards to her appearance, Subaru is surprised when it's revealed that she looks exactly like Emilia. When Subaru kills himself to end that loop, Satella looks completely distressed over the fact that Subaru hurt himself. It's the first time Subaru notes that her insane love love aura she emitted fell for the first time. As he dies, Subaru tells the girl who looks like Emilia that he will save her. In his last moments, Subaru probably mistook Satella for Emilia since her distressed face looks exactly like Emilia's.

There's no way it's a coincidence that Emilia looks identical to Satella.

There's gotta be some alternate timeline fuckery going on.
