Why is her shadow facing the wrong way?
Why is her shadow facing the wrong way?
That doesn't look like something that happens on accident.
Because she's going to turn away from him.
Will the BDs have proper violence?
ReminderThe author already confirmed that Reinhard is the strongest character in Re:Zero.
Q: Who's the strongest character in the novel (including deceased)?
A: Reinhard Van Astrea
Actually, I wonder, I mean, you can see her reaching into the black area and playing with his guts in Ep1 so it's not impossible. I like how they are handling the gore so far.
Obviously, the fucker has every blessing known to man, and gets a new blessing to counter anything that may ever happen to him.
The universe is quite literally faididdling his balls.
And by confirming that he also confirmed the fuck is up to something.
If he's the strongest, how come he doesn't take care of Satella?
Or the Witch Cult?
And how come the Witch Cult is missing it's Pride Apostle?
But could he beat Madara Uchiha?
Reinhardt has nice guy syndrome.
He can't fight evil when he's busy helping old ladies cross the street, saving cats from trees, and kissing babies.
So, what do you think the loophole or oversight is in his powers? His Achilles heel or Baldur's mistletoe.
Shouldn't Satella still be stronger than him, because she has the power of the Witch of Pride rather than a mere bishop?
He could literally end the entire witch conflict by walking up to the tower Satella is sealed in, shank her to death, and then have a coffee while walking a lady down the street next Tuesday.
But he doesn't.
Shit's fishy if you ask me.
So, what do you think the loophole or oversight is in his powers? His Achilles heel or Baldur's mistletoe.
He has a special relationship with the plot. He's given all the powers in the world, but it unable to do anything other than what the plot demands, as repayment.
Replace the word plot with witch or something.
Nobody's really sure where the apostles stand in power levels versus the Witches
And why doesn't Superman cure cancer?
While that's entirely true, that's getting a bit too meta with it. I'm more asking if there's actually a way to simply punch the guy in his smug face if he was standing still.
I'm more asking if there's actually a way to simply punch the guy in his smug face if he was standing still.
One of his noted blessings is that the first attack by the enemy will always miss.
Another of his noted blessings is that the second and every proceeding attack by the enemy will always miss.
So no, you can't just walk up and punch him in the face.
I want off this ride, i can't stomach it
If he's the strongest, how come he doesn't take care of Satella?
maybe he can't kill her
Ok retards. I know you WN/LNfags love to spoil animeonlyfags to fit in, so tell, what's with that thing that stopped Subaru from telling Emilia about his situation and how is it capable of doing so?
because I want him to suffer more
Not much to really spoil, really. It's the curse itself acting out, preventing him from talking about it. Any attempt he makes to brute force his way through the pain it causes him and talk about the curse anyways results in whoever he told to die in a really horrible way.
I doubt you're strong enough to do this all by yourself, but fuck you too. Now tell me about the other guys.
Exactly. How does one get to the point where the blessings about being only 80% immune to magic or growing stronger when he bleeds are actually relevant?
The only possibility I can see is that Subaru might not be bound to the effect that would cause his fist to just swerve out of the way, even if that would probably just make Reinhardt stronger due to some other bullshit blessing he has.
Or he's bored and wants the Witch Cult to succeed up to a certain point, in the hopes that they eventually manage to produce someone he can have an actual fight with. He lives a life without any real challenges.
I don't believe this
And that's all that is known? Ok user, thanks.
It is the Aspect of the Witch of Envy.
His whole resurrection "power" is because of the Witch's will. Every time he dies, she brings him back. This is why he reeks of witch to anyone who can smell it, because every revive marks him more and more with her "scent".
As part of that "power" he is not allowed to tell anyone about the power. He feels tremendous pain when he does so. If he fights through the pain to explain it to someone, the witch will kill them instead. If he tries to use secret bullshit loopholes to tell anyone about it, even worse things will happen.
The witch is basically a goddess that destroyed half of the world already. She is sealed, but the seal is not perfect.
She moves the "save point" only after Subaru does what she wants him to do. So he is her agent in the world for whatever she is plotting.
I think we should actually start using spoiler tags now. I personally don't mind spoilers, but this is probably a rather poor habit to be developing here. Some people should just watch the show and figure things out as they're revealed.
Even if someone asks who did what, telling them it was the butler shouldn't be necessary.
what do you think the loophole or oversight is in his powers?
It's interesting to note that one of the reasons why Subaru isn't effected by
--Rem-- being 'eaten' from the world is probably because Subaru is from another world himself.
What if Reinhardt's blessings have a similar loophole? Because Subaru isn't from this world, the blessings might not entirely work on him.
more like bitch
Well, thanks, but I don't see how all this isn't fucking pointless. How's Subaru staying alive even helping the Witch? She can manifest through him or fucking what?
The ONLY way to take out Reinhardt without getting super technical is to do it non-directly but still kill him in one hit. Probably with a really large rock.
More convoluted options include those wolves getting a nip in somehow, taking away his blessings, or curses.
Or he's bored and wants the Witch Cult to succeed up to a certain point
this would actually make sense
Do traps count as an attack? Could you just lure him into a spiked pit?
I believe he has slowfall, so a spikey pit won't do much.
Just go to him as a friend and stab him in the neck and then do it again after he revives.
All attacks miss him, so it's not going to work unless you can find a reasoning where stabbing him in the neck isn't an attack at all.
invent a religion where everyone wears really thick neck armor all the time and stabbing each other in the neck armor is a greeting
dead pride Apostle
I still support the teleport him into space option.
Because Subaru isn't from this world, the blessings might not entirely work on him.
We have to strangle or suffocate him with Subaru's tracksuit, so his power to grow stronger from bleeding can't kick in.
This will devolve into something retarded. You don't attack him, alright m8? You just walk up to him, greet him, pull your knife in a non-threatening manner and just push it the fuck into his throat. Easy kill.
SECRETLY MY SNAPPY FASHION CHOICES WERE MY GREATEST WEAPON OVERALL
Roller disco pose.jpg
How is the Steins;Gate VN btw? Is there more of the sort of suffering that was in episode ~12/13?
I never bothered to play it at first because it lacks lewdness.
I hope he's managed to keep everything he brought with him from his world.
I'm not that guy, but I thought so. It's been years since I've read it and I still remember Suzuha's route ending with the delicious suffering Okabe went through.
Betty is the best, I suppose.
We can probably get bin to kill himself if Subaru ever gets the heart transfer ability.
Or he might just get fucking jobbed by the Elfen Lied hands.
I want to pleasure myself with those drills
Are there any anons willing to translate the AU chapters yet?
I don't think they'll be painful enough without the proper context.
We'll get the story eventually!
I hope. After all this I just wanna cry like a bitch for a good while. And only genuinely happy, cute shit, can ever pull it out of me.
Let's say Subaru does speak of it and reveals it to people without getting strangled or something. Then what, it will be risky as people who relate him to the witch will put two and two together or gain an advantage over him. There's that possibility that Satella wants to protect him from others knowing.
I'm still betting Satella (like the lady before she went psycho genocide witch, as they're stated to be split personalities) pulled in Subaru and she's actually trying her hardest to hook potential best dad up with her daughter and keep herself sealed away, but Envy fucked up his ability to do it properly and it all comes across as sinister and shit.
Remember, Satella before Envy was a massive sweetheart and super caring, and the other witches greatly prefer Satella over Envy.
You know, considering the parts the other anons translated in the earlier thread, I don't think I really want the TL
How old is Emilia? It doesn't seem likely that she's the literal daughter of Satella, even if she's connected to her in some way.
Is Puck male, or female? I can't tell.
While that's entirely true, that's getting a bit too meta with it.
It happened in Medaka Box, it could happen here.
When does Subaru get [All Fiction]?
Have you never massaged a friend's neck? It's like that! It's just a friendly massage with a very special, very sharp, massage tool!
I want to sleep on those drills.
You will have heartache whether you like it or not user, it's bound to happen someday.
She is her. She looks like her, talks like her, acts like her, and even outright introduced herself as herself while thinking it was merely a cover identity to Subaru early on.
You now you can!
So when Subaru found out that he was being killed by a shaman, why didnt he ask for help from Beatrice to find out who the shaman is or how he got cursed?
All he did was hide and ask Beatrice to protect him, which led to the idiotic loop where Rem got killed instead of him.
She's pretty darn old
and was in Cryo until a few years ago
also why is it that Subaru never askes anyone to help him find out why he smells of a witch? I mean, if i was transported to a world and people kept telling me that, i would be pretty interested to know. Especially if it was linked to me reviving.
Didn't he assume it was poisoning till Rem got gotten?
This is supposed to happen this week.
When will Subaru take up Tennis?
No one seems to like talking about witches and they make that clear every time he's brought the subject up so far.
You can always watch the alternate endings for each girl on YT. IMO the only worth ones are Mayuri's and Suzu's.
There is some interesting stuff though such as much more substantial explanations on time travel and this cool plot twist involving Nae.
Guys how come everyone is ostracizing me, it's not like I know why I wake up this morning covered in progressively more and stronger blood of children
also I can't tell anyone that I keep waking up with progressively more and more blood on me, or else I will die and wake up with even more blood
If you equate the witch stench to something like being covered in blood, it wouldn't exactly be kosher to go up to someone and say "hey, some nights I go to sleep and wake up covered in the blood of children, whats up with that?"
no, he asked beatrice and she told him a shaman could have done it. That was before Rem died.
I guess this is one of the reasons why you're not just supposed to smite evil as soon as you detect it.
yea but beatric keeps telling him that he reeks of witch. That would have been a great time to say "Oh, really? Can you help me find out why?"
I need some user to confirm this too me, Rem has bigger boobs right?
Man i wonder what it would be like to rape one while forcing the other to watch while chained to a sybian
It'd be nice but good luck trying.
He always reminds me of this.
TY. There's a lot of fanart depicting them with the same sizes and it irks me a lot.
Bullying the oni sisters is not allowed.
implying i can't overpower 2 maids
Because Rem modifies her breast measurements to make it also identical to her sister's
I want to
suckle their horns and hug them
Implying you can.
Probably going to get flamed, but I think they both need longer hair. H-Here it comes!
They would definitely be cute with long hair as well, though this is one of the few times that short hair is also fine.
I don't mind. In the AU they describe Rem to be a hot milf with long hair so.
what's this AU people keep talking about
Is Nissan part of the multiverse now?
and other chapters
For what actual purpose.
mfw people keep spoiling this shit but I keep getting the names of Rem and Ram confused so I'm still not completely spoiled.
implying im not stronger than her
i hope we get doujins of them being raped
Rem to be a hot milf with long hair so.
Tell me more, Papi.
I'd probably kill myself over and over again if I were Daihatsu and knew about this
the twin maids belong to me and only me
What the fuck is it with the music selection and placement? I usually get pumped for insert songs before ending. But fuck, the songs are both shit and not fitting the moment. Just ruining every moment.
Don't touch my sister!
literally just a mirrored recolor
You guys need to stop making these threads. People are already letting people know when to migrate and such. It's literally a general. I will report yuor faggot thread to get it removed. Make one thread like everyone else watching a seasonal show or weekly manga. Even the TG shitters wait till friday or saturday for their spoilers.
Is pretty damn boring watching this show. The guy is in a fantasy world, but all the world and potential is used so sparse, all we have got are ice spells, some garbage revival gimmick, and some fantasy CG races. And the MC is just too dumb, might be more fun to watch with Reinhardt/Oni-sama instead of an idiotic Okarin.
Do they name their kid Rigeru?
Nope, older sibling is Rigel. Younger sibling is Spica.
They really need to use the original ED some more.
The single comes out on the 25th, right?
Thanks for sharing your opinion, mister! You may want to note the name of the current forum you're posting in. It'll help you understand acceptable topics of discussion a bit better, I think!
tfw don't know their names so I just call characters based on hair color or physical features
We have Silver, Red, Blue, Cat, Clown and MC.
Did I just witness NTR?
nobody is being ntred
That's Ram so no.
Don't forget loli and caveman.
Red maid or red OP knight?
Say... If we're getting a whole month delay, is it possible that we'll get double episodes for 3 weeks when it comes back to keep on schedule?
I hope to god we do.
Just keep an eye on other channels and
Crunchyroll for now.
They'll let us know what they're doing when it comes down to it.
When does it come back?
inb4 Kekkai Sensen treatment and the last 3 episodes never come out
It is a harem, the clown's harem.
I thought it was only a possibility. They can delay it for just a few hours too, it just depends on if Tennis goes on for too long.
Did this really happen?
no it was delayed for a fucking while though
11 and 12
You can always watch the alternate endings for each girl on YT. IMO the only worth ones are Mayuri's and Suzu's.
Mayuri's end is basically the least interestin end out there.
Farris end on the other hand has way more to offer.
Though I'm pretty sure that the whole delay isn't set in stone and depends how long the actual tennis matches go.
I hope that's the case.
I mean, I can understand watching a countryman doing the cool /sp/ shit and how game time would conflict with MIDNIGHT TIMESLOT ANIMU, and I really wanna keep watching, but I'm not gonna hope the guy loses for more suffering.
Remind me again, who is the one that dies and cannot bring back again?
The one that isn't getting dicked by the clown
kill yourself for trying to ruin things for others.
I hope he loses quickly.
Blue, but she isn't dead exactly.
She had her soul eaten by Larry Moe and Curly and is in an unnoticeable retcon away from reality that only Subaru's weird anti-magic can ignore.
also I hear shit about shit happening to her in arc 5 but I can't confirm due to not being able to read moon. Hopefully some dutiful anons can fill us in on that.
You mean the one that could have a shoot at him (ha ha ha) ... too bad them.
I want off this ride, i can't stomach it
Yeah my sides hurt too.
It's fun, isn't it?
Novak Djokovic sends his regards
Well yeah, it's pretty obviously a comedy. It's just that the jokes can get a lot crueler than most.
I think you're right. I don't know if Sup Forums will actually be able to discuss this series at all without spoilers. Most of the posts are spoilers, people asking for spoilers, people discussing spoilers, and shit posts. But, that's not an excuse so I will use tags. My comments are only a theory, so don't feel too spoiled.
I'll explain it as best I can.
400 years ago the Witch of Envy destroyed half the world, she would have kept going but the Sword Saint, the Sage, and the Dragon fought her. She lost that fight. Though she could not be killed, they did seal her, so that she could no longer influence the year. However, that seal was not entirely perfect and a small amount of the Witch's power was able to get through. Because she's an all powerful witch, a small amount is still a tremendous amount of power. She formulates a plan, one that requires a lot of very specific things to happen. She needs Subaru to make these things happen. So she brings him into their World and places him in a situation where he will fall for Emilia. He does so and he gets involved with Emilia and her struggle for the throne (whoever wins the struggle will contract with the Dragon). His first loop does not end until 1) Emilia is alive. 2) Emilia has her touchstone 3) He has been brought into her place of residence. Once those conditions are met, the witch moves his point of respawn to just after he meets Betty (it is possible she moved it prior and was just updating). His next mission is to gain the trust of Emilia's "protectors" Rem/Ram, Roswaal. Once he does so, she will move the save point again. Set new conditions, once he does them, she will move the save point again.
So basically, until he fulfills her conditions, he's going to keep looping. And the conditions are things that Subaru generally desires. However, the witch does not care what he wants and may actively sabotage him, particularly when it comes to other women. (continued)
Witch of Envy is literally the Black Mage from Maplestory
Honestly this series is so reliant on the plot and future events that aren't explained yet it's really fuckin hard to help describe ANYTHING without using spoilers.
And that draws in the shitposters.
Why does Subaru love them if they keep killing him???
When is NTR?
I can see why there are alot of Tolkienversefags running around now.
So say Subaru accomplishes a goal like kill the white whale (he does) but also Subaru loses someone he loves. The witch will still move the save point because all she cares about is the white whale dying (and she might even want to eliminate any women in his life other than her). So Subaru thought he was doing everything right, but really just advanced the Witch's plans.
Subaru is her agent. He will accomplish the goal to get to the next save point. If he does not, he is forever stuck in that other loop.
The witch is using this extremely indirect method because she already lost. She is sealed. The witch can be defeated. In fact, if people found out about Subaru's "power" they would probably think to improve the seal on the witch. She does not let him talk about it, because if he does, she can be counter-acted and resealed. Or they could permanently put Subaru in stasis rather than kill him. She wants to avoid detection until she is in a position to do what she wants (likely destroy the rest of the world). She also likely did not want Subaru to know that he was a pawn.
Reinhardt is also powerful, but not really. He can only win against things he can fight. He can only be at one place at one time. If multiple problems arise at once, there is only one Reinhardt to deal with them.
Subaru is extremely weak in this world. But he is also the most powerful. He gets an infinite number of tries and can try every possible strategy. As long as something is not impossible for him, he can do it. So the witch is going to keep leading him on his journey and tricking him along the way into helping her.
The story of Re: Zero is about a proxy war between the Witch and the World being fought through Subaru.
Well, it's not exactly NTR, but
So he can talk about it in front of others, just not directly tell them? Or is Beatrice an exception?
She's a fucking oni. Don't fuck with oni.
No exception there. He can't really tell anyone, but he can think aloud about it. Of course, everyone thinks half of the shit that comes out of his mouth is utter nonsense, so they don't really seem to pay his mutterings much attention.
He isn't exactly a witch king, though.
Subaru can actually counteract the witch if he keeps going down the route he is going down.
If he keeps absorbing the powers of the Apostles, he'll become the next sage, which gives him a third of the power over the witch's seal.
And if he becomes the Sage, Reinhardt will more than likely keep a closer eye on him to explain shit, as Subaru is dumb as a box of rocks about how things work in this new world.
Unless Rein is a bad guy in disguise, he'll help Subaru reseal the Witch alongside whoever contracts the Dragon by becoming king, as all three are needed.
A happy ending is entirely possible for this story that doesn't involve Subaru getting brainwashed into super hitler Satan's fuckbuddy.
Subaru should have fucked with the oni. That way he'd be living a happy life with two kids.
Translation of EX volume 2 when?
>Attuned to "Yin"
His "respawn" ability is a curse
Not the "MC" to his own series
He is starting to get the "evil eyes" and give off a sense of dread
Absorbs "essences" similar to Satella
Has absorbed the power of Sloth to corrupt the hearts of man
His main flaw are his virtues
Witches have taken great interest in him
Betelgeuse mistook him for the Bishop Of Pride when they first met
The Authority of Pride is still missing
Author is a sadist
It's possible but I cannot see any good coming from this.
Beatrice is a bit of an exception. They are also in Beatrice's world and Beatrice is also a Witch (or at least, the daughter of one).
Beatrice and Subaru are very connected. They contract together eventually and that might be an immutable rule. It's possible that Beatrice can sense his thoughts, but also that she can feel the strength of their bond. Imagine you wake up in a hospital and you have amnesia, there is a woman above you, you have no idea what her name is, how you met, or anything about her. But you know she is your wife and that you are in love and would do anything for her, whoever she is. So it is possible that Betty has the knowledge of their relationship.
The witch very deliberately moved the save point to the second time he woke up. Which is after he met Betty. This makes it so he keeps going back to Betty. She's the one person who has some memories of him other than Emilia and her room becomes his sanctuary in all loops. Every loop, Betty can probably detect that relationship changing and the nature of their connection changing. In Loop 1, she knows he is cursed and is going to die, but sadly acknowledges that it is not her business. In Loop 4 she contracts to protect him with her life no matter what.
So something changed across those loops and it is likely her knowledge of at the very least, their relationship.
>He is starting to get the "evil eyes" and give off a sense of dread
So, what's up with that? Is there anything more specific?
Characters keep commenting on his glare and are starting to scare people. Especially when he gets serious or in a fight, not from his enemies, but from his allies.
Not really, that's from rage. Not from what user is describing. It has a different root.
it's like wearing a mat draping off their head
Think like the cold eyes of a psychopath. Kind of like that.
Does he fight well enough or actively use his sufficiently creep powers to merit that kind of fear? I'd expect that from everything he's gone through, but people were making it sound more supernatural than just that.
This guy walks up into the bar and slaps your waifu's ass. What do you do?
How the fug do you guys know all this if the manga or ln havn't been translated yet.
Surely you haven't learned the most useless language on earth and can read moon runes, no one is that autistic right?
It isn't from the fighting, the fighting isn't what is causing it. Think of him like a pressure cooker with no way to let out steam.
Kill him until he stops.
You'd be surprised.
So lets say we get a happy ending with Subaru finally not being controlled by the witch. Only issue is now he will never know if once he dies will it be for good until it happens. That single curiosity will always be burning inside him. Would he throw away his happiness just to know?
My has Japanese schools out the ass. They're usually next to English schools, sometimes one and the same. Make of that what you will.
Well, you have to keep in mind it IS supernatural.
Human beings are defined by one thing-- we die. We are finite creatures who have a singular possibility. Our entire society is constructed on keeping the inevitability of death as far from our consciousness as possible.
Subaru has transcended what is human. He has died, had knowledge of death, and returned to life. Repeatedly.
This is not natural. This is not actually possible. So it is outside of natural, or as you say "supernatural".
The manga has been translated though
Yeah, but that just sounds like the ordinary fear someone has of a guy slowly losing his mind.
He resists the urge to kill himself and dies a natural and peaceful death surrounded by all of his loved ones.
Then he wakes up to a merchant offering him an appa.
only to chapter 15 of the second book, and people are talking about things well beyond what has been translated ITT
Alot of people are waiting for him to burst. Because its just a matter of time.
Garfiel was with Subaru when Satella came out. 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.
At least we can remove one of the list of things that the plot convenience user had. Say, do you read this story? If so, can you tell us about metias if they are mentioned again?
why though user? they handle the supposedly gore scene properly i would say.
Well that's the great thing about death we don't even know what will happen. For all we know could probably end up back at some save point in our lives.
Kind of like this?
Exactly. Exactly like that.
I get that part quite well.
I just thought maybe the witch power might have become more noticeable after he died so many times and absorbed the power from the Bishops, to the point where he was projecting an aura even normal people could sense at times.
Well, here's hoping the checkpoint isn't set after the damage is done!
Holy shit is that guy uncanny
Kind of like that
Well, the "smell" of the witch is already ungodly heavy on him. You either can sense it or you can't. It doesn't matter how loud you are, a deaf person will not hear you.
Yeah, but at a certain volume you can feel it.
So that is why some of them vomited? Especially some of the bishops?
Not that I remember. They are probably being saved for later or kept in the authors bag of tricks. If you are writing a story like this, you have to open up with a lot of threads that you can connect later on. But you can also change your mind and decide "this one idea I had was retarded". The idea probably would involve other people crossing over. Or something like that.
As it is, the author can use it if they want to and they have it established. But they haven't really done much with it yet. By not really doing much with Metia, they have given themselves options on how they want to handle it (was that thing just mistaken for some other kind of artifact, or is other earth technology there, that resolution is open).
Sometimes, in order to avoid painting yourself into a corner, you have to leave some weird areas unpainted.
I wonder how
--Rem-- will feel about the smell if she gets fixed. I'm sure it must have gotten about a million times stronger. She'll be in for one hell of a treat.
Implying Subaru won't be forced to kill her beforehand.
Gluttony is a bitch.
Nuh uh. Look at their boobs. Rem's are bigger.
A little late but at least it is brought up. Subaru can use magic but he needs all the help he can get. Plus metias are pretty rare so I guess they wouldn't be appearing much in this series. He has almost no time to spare. Pic related.
Presumably it dies down since Beatrice said so.
So does this guy have some other power he develops or is just dying and coming back half the man he once was the only thing he got going for him? Just yes or no is fine
If she gets saved, she'll die for real a moment later and the save point moved ahead. If the author is indeed a sadist and her revival is certain, this will happen without a doubt.
Both. Not a very effective one though but can save his ass.
Yeah. He's compatible with all the witch powers, so he can Megaman them from defeated bosses who hold them. However, he can't use them at anywhere near the same power.
Ｅmilia is 100-year-old virgin.
I'm sure he can be a bit more creative than that. There are plenty of ways for it to go horribly wrong without having to kill her.
Exactly how crazy is she when Gluttony calls up her personality?
Enough to make Subaru kill himself that's for sure.
Well, that sounds just fine for creepy shell-shocked Subaru on his path to become the villain. I mean, being the villain isn't something you just need on your own. You need to start surrounding yourself with other scary and off-putting characters who are loyal to you above all else.
If your presence in their life has only resulted in them becoming corrupted and monstrous, that's all the better!
It was so bad it filled Subaru with both heartache and despair that he actually offed himself.
Like in arc 3 when became a babbling idiot. Except the emotional wounds inflicted on Subaru were worse this time around, if he didn't harden up in the previous arcs just might have ended up worse.
Isn't that state more like the time he was a drooling mad man from the help of our wise magical negro?
Really? I've been reading these threads often and I haven't seen this one yet. You aren't pulling this out of your ass,right?
Nope, arc 3 was just him being an insane babbling idiot.
This pertains to something much worse, and much darker.
It actually happened. The most creepy part is "I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU".
Got chapter numbers?
Are some of the chapters.
I can't wait to see how they animate the torture and insanity. It will be a hell of a lot more creepy than horror anime we have.
So, why does this guy think Subaru might be the Bishop of Pride?
Anons,I've been wondering for a while but it seems like Subaru is dying like there's no tomorrow in next arcs. Are they narrating the story in the LNs all of the loops he's lived or just the summary?
Sorry friend, I'm working purely off memory.
She is pure. PURE!
This would actually be good if the execution wasn't so bad. Subaru is autism incarnate, what a shame.
No, he's >crippling depression
This is one of the few times that watching the MC is insufferable. It would have been better if he was generic self insert, and I can't believe I'm saying this
You say that now but Subaru makes for an awesome dad.
Maybe if you're 12
Well his oldest child is 7 years old so.
Just because you're the strongest, doesn't mean you can beat everyone.
Subaru has children?
3 weeks for tennis
What the fuck are they playing that it takes so long?
I think I might have just spoiled you by accident.
Uhm, do you want to get spoiled even further?
He could have had them if he made the right choice.
In the AU chapters of the WN, yes. He definitely did.
Yahari and fate shit are allowed and they are not aired go kill yourself autist
Would subaru return back to the mansion if he died a natural death after a happy life with rem and two children?
Probably. There's no reason for the checkpoints to be moved if he doesn't accomplish the right goals.
The curse is still on him so he would have probably respawn to the cold eyes of his wife who no longer remembers him.
Man he would all be like, "oh no not this shit again"
Jesus, fuck that. He should just stop searching for happiness and do what he gotta do
That's sad. At least satella was nice enough to give him a break in said AU
Is her contract/relationship with Puck ever explained?
Actually its two children with one possibly in the making.
all we know is that if emilia dies, puck flies
In a rage
one possibly in the making.
Everyone you know has gone through billions and billions of loops and at this point have gone so far off the deep end they just repeat themselves like NPC's.
What if we used multiple simultaneous devastating simultaneous multiple devastating simultaneous deep strikes?
Have you heard about S;G 0?
If you thought the original had suffering, boy I have news for you.
People really do not get this.
Reinhardt is impossible to fight.
Reinhardt is easy as fuck to beat.
All you have to do is get him to go somewhere far away. Lure him with a huge threat.
Then destroy everywhere where he isn't. Kill everyone else. Destroy all the farms and arable lands. And then... just run away or chill in really inconvenient spots.
Reinhardt can get whatever blessing he needs... to win. But there is no such thing as winning against someone who will not fight you. An empty cup is required if you want to fill a cup, etc.
Or you can just kill everyone else he cares about or values. Just break him. That works too.
In anything other than a straight up fight, he is going to lose or suffer.
Which is great, if you are an omnipresent witch.
Subaru won't ever
A shame, he looks great with these butler clothes.
I got provisionally diagnosed yesterday
the enemy is so powerful and unbeatable you have to engineer an entire JRPG story arc in a totally different country on the other side of the planet for him to go deal with so he'll be occupied for long enough for you to do your own thing here
b-but it has time travel and suffering, they're so alike
Didn't Subaru running away with Rem occur in arc 3? So wouldn't Subaru wake up in the capital at the loop's beginning after Emilia left him? I believe by that point Rem is in love Subaru.
Get a load of this faggot
Oh shit you're right, I completely forgot about that.
Look up Steins;Gate 0, user.
I know what it is; why would I look it up. It's just more S;G but with ebin AU twists like suddenly the heroine is an AI and other 10/10 writing.
tfw i'm now caught up on the manga chapters
they weren't actually that far ahead
Time for suffering/waiting
with one possibly in the making.
Are there illustrations of his children?
Nope, not as of yet. But I can describe them to you if you want.
f-fuck you man don't talk shit about muh digital waifu
Mate, come on.
Fuck you, don't talk shit about my waifu.
gets turned into an AI
The ONLY positive way to spin this is that it's so pure that it's 2d in 2d, on the other hand it's a tsun so thoughts of purity or 'best' are foreclosed due to ineligibility.
Kurisutina is one of the few decent tsuns.
My waifu is perfect
I don't particularly agree. Just because she isn't a cookie cutter tsun doesn't make her good. It's all in the execution.
tsun AI in an AU
not wanting the AI to go through an existential crisis
can you ask the question again?
Why does everyone think Subaru will end up a villian though?
Life is not fair
I still love you user.
cranks out three kids
expecting a NEET to suddenly be able to support a family of five
I mean really now.
Did anyone notice that his shadow is also facing away?
It's probably because as Honda keeps looping and being driven further insane, he'll end up pushing Emilia away while and turn his back on her as well.
His shadowbis facing her like he's trying to catch up to her. He just has horrible posture.
Tell the shitposters to stop making shitposting threads, which causes us non-shitposters to create other threads to have actual discussion away from the shitposts
where the fuck is the preview
T E N N I S
Wait seriously? I thought the tennis thing was just an elaborate meme.
Nope. Episodes 8, 9 and 10 might be delayed because of tennis
Woops. I fucked up. Missed the shadow's shins and thought it was curved backwards, like it was looking upwards. My bad.
Pink is the one who
gets RAMmed later on.
This should help.
Come on Japan, nobody cares about tennis. I need my weekly dose of SUFFERING.
GIGANTIC CLOWN DONGS
Preview of episode 8 is out:
P R E V I E W
I wanna see him cry this episode. It will be glorious and beautiful with development.
his smile in the preview
Why im happy?
user they never going to delayed a series 3 weeks, some Series that suffer this destiny was because production problem like God eater or Kekkai Sensen or a earthquake like madoka
Happy because of his smile.
It's not exclusive to TV Tokyo. It airs on other channels too, albeit delayed
So does anyone have that RE: Dwarf Fortress Zero edit?
Kekkai Sensen didn't have any production issues.
It just sold so well they decided to make the last episode double length. but they didn't have any timeslots to air such a long episode until october
Nice bait, id rather suffer through suzuha ending again
I don't think I paid much attention to sales that season (as in even less than normal) but I'm surprised it wasn't a flop.
He got a lap pillow from Emilia
Here comes the halfway point of arc 2.
We are ever getting closer to the Chapter: From Zero. Don't fuck this up whitefox.
Do you think they're gonna animate these chapters? Or are they going to be in break-time?
If a qt half elf willingly gave me a lap pillow I'd probably burst into tears too without even time looping ;_;
mada mada dane
wut why is break time ep 7 already out?
[Mashin]  TVアニメ「Re：ゼロから始める異世界生活」EDテーマ「STYX HELIX」／MYTH & ROID [MP3]
wow that was fast. 5 days before the actual release
TIME TO SHINE
I'm gonna be straight with you, even as a Remfag, I hope Emilia wins in the end just the same as Rem.
Anything that'll make Subaru happy rather than a total fucking wreck that'll doom the world.
Plus even if Emilia wins there's still a chance of Rem winning too.
implying it won't end with Subaru becoming completely mindbroken after being forced to kill the cured Rem himself and not being able to undo it, Emilia's body being posessed by the witch, and them destroying the rest of the world together
On the other hand I hope she ends up happy, just not with Subaru, Subaru belongs to Rem and Rem only.
No. Fuck you. That's not gonna happen. Not even the author is that sadistic.
Denial is the first stage of grief
We all know Subaru will loop a bajillion years rather than kill either of them.
The dork couldn't kill anyone who loved him as unconditionally as Rem does.
Stop being such a tragedy fetishist, let us cling on to the last branch of hope before it all comes crumbling down, at least.
We all know Subaru will loop a bajillion years rather than kill either of them.
He'll get tricked into it somehow and only realize once it's too late.
I swear you EMTfags are the biggest tragedy fetishists
I want to explode inside white Megumin!
for some reason break time 7 is out?? not even kadokawa released it
I'm ok with anything that makes him happy at this point even if he ends up with Satella and half the world goes to shit.
Thank you so much.
I thought we got rid of your kind back in the Naoru wars of 2013
But variety is a good thing I suppose
BMT is in this one. YES.
I don't think the AU is even canon, is it? It was just a "what if" scenario.
It could have been canon, we're not sure.
I hope they're planning on giving us the AU in the anime, no matter how much more heartwrenching the end of the season is with arc 3 ending.
If it was actually canon, I would think he would think back to the memories of it from time to time as a way to cope with the madness. Like a "happy place" some people use to deal with stress.
cope with pain by reminding yourself of the happy life you could have had and now have no chance at
How does that work exactly?
If it was canon, technically he lived it.
And if he worked hard enough, he could get that back again, possibly even happier than before.
That'd be reason enough to keep going. Subaru can literally live a million happy lifetimes and remember them all.
He has so many happy endings ahead of him he can run off from everything with any girl he wants, plan the most perfect wedding and everything, then get back to work.
Subaru's suffering would be a million times less painful if he explored his options and knew how his looping worked, and understood the limitations better.
Well you wouldn't be thinking of it in that way, first of all. Just simple basic happy memories, that's it. Just dreaming about them essentially through something like a daydream. I guess you could eventually convince yourself it was just a happy dream.
Did they make a mistake or to make up for the shit that TENNIS did?
Because of the earthquake delay, Sakamoto's final episode won't air on TV and we'll have to wait for BDs
This is relevant because if we get any delays because TENNIS, the final episodes of Re:Zero will probably share the same fate of being BD exclusive
Has the significance of Emilia calling herself Satella been explained yet? Given Puck's reaction I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that it was the point that Subaru was chosen for the looping and that loop 2 Emilia onwards thinks she hasn't cast it yet.
She was fucking with him. In a sort of "this guy can't be this dumb about the world history, right?"
She gave him the Satella name after he said he was from an eastern country when they were in in the easternmost country in the setting.
Remember how before they got killed the first time around she wanted to tell him something?
She was gonna explain she wasn't telling the truth about her name.
Has the significance of Emilia calling herself Satella been explained yet?
It should be fairly obvious. Everybody in the setting would know the name and probably react visibly in some way when she used it. She was testing him.
Is that really all there is to it? She's supposed to look exactly like her and was pretty pissed at getting called that in the loop after even though she got comfortable enough to make a joke of it with a guy she only just met. Given her circumstances it seems like the sort of interaction a writer would use to hint at her hiding something huge.
Honestly, really all there was to it.
If he knew ANYTHING about ANYTHING in that world, he would have known about Satella, especially because she nearly nuked half the fucking world.
That's it. Same reason why she also examined his hands.
user.. just imagine, seeing that AU is continuing like a side chapter on the WN/LN
what if, it continues until seemingly a good end where subaru and rem grows old.... and for subaru to die and loop back to the mansion (end of AU)
There are two good explanations.
The first is simple-- he has come to her, a candidate for the throne, and a likely target of plots with a really crazy story. She wants to test him.
The second is my theory and probably wrong, but might be entertaining to read.
Imagine a sideways figure 8. The story begins at the middle of the figure 8 (this is why the first episode is titled "The end of the beginning and the beginning of the end) The right half of the 8 is the series of time loops that Subaru goes through to have Emilia become Satella, the two of them fall in love/live together and actually have a happy ending. However, Subaru is mortal so he will die. In order to be with him forever, Satella then travels back in time to arrange all the events that brought him to the world in the first place. After she has arranged everything, she (via the body of Emilia) goes to meet Subaru and they have their first meeting where she introduces herself as Satella. He falls for her and thinks of her as "Satella". She has him go into the loot house first, waits for him to get stabbed, and then Satella heads to her own death. While they both lay dying, Subaru makes a vow that is required for him to gain the power of Rebirth by Death, namely he promises to Satella that he is going to save her. This promise is not made to Emilia, but to Satella. Satella's life "ends" here, holding the hand of Subaru, since after that loop, she reverts to Emilia. And then Subaru takes all the actions required to bring Satella back into the world. They get together. And then Satella goes back to perform all the actions required to bring Subaru into the world. So basically it's an infinite loop for both of them to create the circumstances for the other to exist. I expect that the loop will be revealed, but will be broken this time around (the events that Re Zero covers).
That's just my theory and will probably be wrong.
So why was Subaru chosen for the job. Why him specifically
Because the witch of envy or Satella (nobody's sure which personality it is) loves him.
We don't know why.
There's a massive lack of information regarding Satella AND Envy's motives right now.
There are three groups of people we know the true intentions of at this exact moment.
Subaru wants to protect the girls he loves (Emilia and later Rem).
The Witch Cult wants to revive Satella.
Clowndick wants to revive his witch Waifu.
Subaru is not only
the chosen one and agent of the primary evil in the setting, but he starts taking on more cursed powers and becomes increasingly unsettling after all of his deaths.
Also because Reinhardt is also a sort of chosen one, only without any obvious ties to a dark sinister power to taint or twist that idea, so it's easy to see where that leaves Subaru.
My suspicion is that:
After she was sealed 400 years ago she had the power to do a lot of things indirectly. She wanted to search for "the person who could unseal her". That person did not exist in their world, but did exist in another world.
In fact, one of the conditions for the person to bring her back is that "they cannot be from this world". The reason is that Subaru being from another world lets him pass nearly all the magic barriers of the Witch's world (spells to make barriers keep out only things from their world, not from other worlds).
She is her only hope to return to the world. She brings him into it, uses Return by Death on him until she is resurrected, is with him/falls in love, and then goes back in time to do it again so she can be with Subaru even more.
Again, just a theory, but this one I suspect the first few sentences are true no matter what.
We honestly don't know if Subaru is evil or not.
You're using theories as facts until proven otherwise.
For all we know Reinhardt could be murdering puppies for kicks because we don't see what he's doing on the day to day.
I say let theories lie until they're proven correct, not treat them as the canon words of the author.
so technically subaru is just randomly selected according to your theory?
why cant all thread be like this.. we always need two or three threads before things becoming civil
or shitposters ended up losing interest.
Desparate for belonging and so easily strung along. Lacks the unfailingly valiant and optimistic standard hero traits, he's a depressive shut in taken from a world where everyone shunned him, and is compatible to absorb essences probably because of that. For whatever reason Satella has a thing for him, too, or maybe it's specifically because of those things and/or anyone who throws him a bone he'll latch onto and be super loyal to.
Just my assumptions
That theory is killed when you look into it.
The only spoken words we've EVER seen of Envy is her declaring her love for Subaru. Over and over and over and over and over again.
However, she could be attempting at using his nature as an easy to fall in love dork and just failing miserably at it.
Like even Subaru who LITERALLY fell in love at first sight with Emilia and fell for Rem when he realized she loved him was freaked the fuck out by Envy/Satella.
In my theory, he is chosen because he is probably the exact right person. It's not like he was chosen at random, the witch used her magic to find the right person.
It is not random, but instead, is like using a search engine to find the exact piece of information you need. Something like that.
I never said anything about Subaru being evil, because he very obviously isn't, nor did I use any theories as facts. These were the reasons I've seen for why people believe this theory. That's all.
If Reinhardt is murdering puppies, it's not currently obvious.
He's not evil, but his good intentions are going to be twisted into evil and he's going to end up in the evil role whether he likes it or not I expect.
Bonus SUFFERING points for him finding out he isn't some exact right person, just the easiest target out of many.
shitposters ended up losing interest
Don't worry I just woke up. If Subaru had a happy ending with Rem in the AU does that mean the Witch Cult ended up fucking over everything else in the kingdom since there was no Subaru to stop them?
ed and ep7 insert song is out
MYTH & ROID – STYX HELIX (Single) Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu ED
Does this confirm that tennis isn't going to fuck everything up and the worst that will happen is the episode will be moved to a different timeslot?
With no sage, Satella can't be freed or sealed further.
If Subaru runs off, Clowndick can't lord over him and has no way of reviving his waifu, the King shit will resolve itself, and anything involving the witch cult could feasibly be solved by Reinhardt.
The only thing that'd be negatively effected is that Emilia would realize what a fucking dumbass she was for breaking it off with the retard who didn't know how politics worked.
Seems like it.
So basically everything is Subaru's fault.
why is MC so retarded
So you can identify with him.
Things happen to Subaru but he doesn't personally cause any problems that don't directly involve him.
Clowndick is a psycho who is literally trying to impregnate Ram so he can kill off the soul of the child and inhabit the body.
Subaru is the only way of stopping him from keeping his shit going, for example.
He did dun goof at the palace, but the only thing that did was embarrass Emilia, and didn't cause any major problems besides breaking his own heart.
Witch Cult shit was going to happen eventually anyway, and the fact that Clowndick spurred them into action in the first place was just speeding up the inevitable.
Subaru himself saved a LOT of lives over the course of the story. in fact there are only two people he didn't save so far and those are in arc 3.
The kid is like the Anti-Antichrist when you look at him from that kind of standpoint.
With no sage, Satella can't be freed or sealed further.
So that's why Satella made sure he couldn't save Rem. Is there really any better way to motivate him to gain all the witch powers to become the Sage?
The author of this shit is a fucking faggot.
If Envy was REALLY trying she'd set shit up so that Emilia was killed by each of the apostles without a doubt so Subaru would take em out.
What's happening with Rem is Clowndick's book mixed with pure coincidence that the Gluttony fucks keep getting away.
Envy didn't engineer any of that.
your pathetic bitch tears only fuel his raging erection
the gluttony fucks keep getting away
I can't wait till Honda gets ahold of those guys and beats them to death with his own two hands, one by one, the kid just fucking snapping with MAD.
Well, can she actually direct the witch cult at all? I get the feeling her control over the situation is actually rather limited. She mostly just sets checkpoints.
Details are a bit different but I thought pretty much the same thing when "Satella looks like Emilia" popped up. I figured that a closed timeloop was involved and that the story would see Emilia's rise to power into becoming Satella. Satella's resolution would actually come in the climax and that the story would end with Emilia with snapping right after losing Subaru for good(losing Return by Death with Satella's resolution) sending her off into time shenanigans which leads right into destroying half the world in the past as the cost for bringing Subaru into the world.
Her control of the situation is Subaru. When he does something she likes she'll autosave his game.
So basically, random fortuitous occurrences can probably merit a savepoint if it works out in her favor?
Yes. And you have to keep in mind it is "fortuitous " for her.
Well, my theory is that this actually has a happy ending, so it does have to be exactly him. Basically as crazy as all this stuff is, it is being done out of love, that love however has become more and more warped as Subaru has already gone through this whole timeline hundreds of times.
Basically the current setting is that history has been a straight line that ends in a sideways 8
because Satella keeps bringing back Subaru who keeps bringing back Satella.
Right, she CAN'T set any of this up.
Clowndick is the one who is causing every problem so far. Envy, as far as we know, is just setting checkpoints and keeping an eye on the situation.
Not to mention she has no control over Reinhardt
Unless the theory on him being the pride apostle is correct, who is another necessary piece to unseal her, nor does she control who the dragon will eventually decide to contract with.
Even if Emilia was her pawn, and she made it all the way to the throne, the dragon could just say "nah" and this entire theory of Envy pulling all the strings falls to shit.
What we do know about Envy and Satella so far
Envy is a split, psychotic personality of Satella
Satella is a sweet as can be half elf with silver hair
Satella looks LIKE Emilia, but not identically
Envy killed and absorbed the other witchs' powers
Envy and Satella are sealed (but not entirely) in a tower that horribly kills anyone who gets too close.
to unseal Satella (and by extension, Envy), you need the power of the Sword Saint (Reinhardt), The Dragon (the King has the power over the Dragon, so we don't know who controls that power yet) and the Sage (likely Subaru)
The same trio are needed to seal Satella and Envy further and cut her off from everything forever.
The Witch of Greed was killed by Envy
Before she died, she had a daughter in the form of Betty, I suppose.
She also gave Clowndick a book that tells the future and tells him how to revive her.
Clowndick uses forbidden magical shit to turn his own successors into vessels for his soul
He's currently attempting to make a successor with Ram
Clowndick has a direct line with the Witch Cult
Clowndick is also in the know about Subaru's powers.
Are you keeping the pastebin updated with all the shit anons post here?
I think you are incorrect. Also you should use more spoiler tags.
Clown may be meddling with the specifics and doing random things, but it is very likely that the larger events have been arranged by the Witch. I do not think it is coincidence that all of the royal family died of sickness, that Subaru was brought to Emilia, and that she will contract with the Dragon if she wins. What you're missing is that the Dragon and her enter into a contract. Emilia has constantly stressed the importance of these contracts and of promises. They are binding forces for spirits. So if the Dragon has to obey Emilia's orders as part of the contract, and she orders him to lift the seal (or assist with it), the Dragon is compelled. It's not a choice.
Actually, I really like your theory (half the world is destroyed just for Subaru) I think that might be right and is a good catch.
Well, you really don't need a respawning dude who can keep retrying things if you're pulling all of the strings. Redoing stuff until it works is kind of a brute force tactic.
However, she can damned well set the checkpoints after noticing something which will make her plans easier. If she realizes Subaru is sufficiently attached to Rem for it to make swallowing the Sage plan easier, she'd probably see that as a bonus.
the larger events may also have been caused by the Cult itself.
The only powers we know Envy has are that she can't die
she might even have return after death herself, and the powers of the other witches that we don't even know yet, as we only know the powers of the apostles, and they may be seperate.
As for the dragon, he also has to agree to form the contract, and the chances are that he'd make a contract with someone who looks like the psycho bitch he sealed away are practically Nil, which hurts Emilia's chances. Additionally, you also forget Clowndick set up Emilia for the running as a sponsor, and she didn't entirely do it herself.
If anyone is the greater scope villain here it's Greed by having Clowndick put shit into motion at all.
Hell, Satella could have just as likely set out on Subaru to keep Greed from coming back. Again. We don't know her motives yet.
No, they're just wasting effort
Correct but the only real reason she could possibly need Subaru is that she needs people from different worlds to get through the barrier to her tower.
... Wait a second.
If she needs people who can bust through the barriers, and the only people who can do that are folks from a different world, could it possibly be that Reinhardt is another person tossed into the world? And Emilia is from an alternate version of the world?
Ah yes, that old workaround for the "warded against everything in the universe" defense.
Well it is the truth.
It seems to be that if you have witch or apostle power, you can absorb more by killing other folks with witch/apostle power.
So if it wasn't for the "nobody from our world" barrier, she could by all intents and purposes just slap the Return After Death onto Clowndick and suddenly profit.
It's all actually a closed loop with Satella is what happens to Emilia in every world she doesn't die but Subaru does, and she's just trying to set things right?
Arc 2 is ending on ep 10 right?
totally... Satella confirmed
Japan does not have sport channels
Fucking gold, tennis tournaments taking anime time slots
Fucking Olympics this summer
Reminder that Subaru's autism is what makes him the best dad.
You might be onto something user.
mfw my dad does radio calisthenics on the daily
ywn have a sadist son who bases his character off the stupid shit you do and makes loads of dosh off it, your own personality quirks helping your kid even while you're in the ground
I think that it is possible that the Witch cult set up the struggle for the throne, but I think it benefits Emilia a bit too much to be the case. Your points are valid and possible.
I think it was a setup by someone. Wasn't it mentioned that the entire royal family died
except possibly Felt due to some strange disease?
He already has the dad poses down. All he needs is are puns and 70-80's disco and pop music.
Yes, but nobody knows what the disease was.
The witches were all dead and Satella sealed by that point, so it couldn't have been the Witch Of Envy
Well, Satella's power is hardly entirely sealed given the situation with Subaru.
Didn't someone say that people just dropped dead if he managed to force himself explain the curse to them? If that's true, that sounds like a highly effective weapon if no one he cares about is in earshot.
Wow the OVAs are gonna be pretty cool, Subaru went back to Japan and met his father again
One thing we didn't notice a out Subaru
His name means Pleiades, a constellation also known as the Seven Sisters
Now look at the names of the other Apostles.
Nearly fooled me there for a second.
Is that why he is so popular with kids from the village?
He must be turning over in his own grave right about now.
My dad does this as well, he does it so he can stare at those women's asses while they bend around and shit.
>Now look at the names of the other Apostles.
What exactly are their names again? I know the pattern you're implying, but I don't know the specifics.
you're a cheeky bastard I'll give you that.
Capella Emerada Lugnica
all the apostles are named after earth stars and constellations.
Stars and constellations that don't exist in the new world.
My theory is this:
[Spoiler] in the original timeline Felt would be a spoiled tsundere flat princess, the typical LN heroine voiced by Rie Kugimiya. Reinhardt was supposed to be the ultimate stereotypical overpowered MC and the story would really be about them.
However, because of the witch the story is about Subaru and Emilia. Basically, the hero is a self-loathing fairly weak guy, and the heroine is the evil witch rather than the princess.
That does not mean Subaru will become the dark lord or evil or anything, it just means they are the focus of events rather than the original timeline pair.
He is Emilia-tan's Dad
Well, that's not even slightly suspicious at all.
That does not mean Subaru will become the dark lord or evil or anything,
Of course it doesn't, but it's doesn't exactly have comforting implications. It's certainly one of his potential paths if he fails to catch onto what's going on in time.
Stop it. We cannot say that for sure yet.
There are so many ways this story can go, so many things unanswered. Goddamn.
I don't think she would be a spoiled princess. I feel like the reason why she's out in the streets in the first place is because she's a bastard child, a child that was had with a concubine, or something to that effect.
I think it's not a very likely possibility just because I think if the author went that route, it would already be sort of falling into the stereotype of the "Dark Lord" LN.
I see the title of the work as optimistic and hopeful.
I feel like the message of the story is that no matter how bad things are you can pull yourself together and begin again, even if you start from nothing. I do not expect a "bittersweet" ending, but instead a very heartwarming one where the good ending feels very earned. Of course, I am okay with the story heading a darker direction, but I have a feeling that we're going to get something genuinely sweet rather than bittersweet.
Like that wedding ring on Rem's finger right?
It's honestly starting to feel that it'll play out that way.
The author knows we're suffering, and although he might be literally sadistic, he's thrown one helluva bone already with the AU, almost as if he's saying "sorry folks that you gotta put up with absolutely depressing levels of suffering, even for me. Here's a hint of what what's to come will feel like"
The problem is, alot of chapters with the title zero at the end is where Subaru meets his darkest moments. Like the chapter From Zero where he shuts down mentally and has a depressive episode.
I don't really expect it to happen either. I mostly just expect there to be a high risk of it happening within the story.
The whole thing would change too much if he ever acquired enough political and magical power to go full Dark Lord. At the same time, I kind of doubt he'll turn out as a typical hero after all the shit he's gone through.
I think the AU is more like
hey this subaru character is always getting himself into trouble right?
he can rewind back to before he gets into trouble
what if he used that power to avoid trouble instead of trying to fix it?
Running away may not solve the problem, but it sure as hell makes it somebody else's problem. I wonder if Subaru will ever take a break from getting killed repeatedly to live a life of peace for a little while before getting back to being killed repeatedly.
I still believe it will end with Subaru going back to the Appa merchant and losing the loop ability. This time he will have to do everything right from zero.
You mean he'll actually learn to avoid the alley?
in mythology the pleadies became stars after killing themselves out of grief
Except all of the bishop's backstories are practically like that.
Well, then you could say it represents all of them. Seven sins, seven sisters.
It's like pottery.
Spica is a star
Why do all of the murderers come from the North?
First Elsa, and now this damn shaman.
would be nice hopefully also the Q&A
the North is the Chaos Wastes obviously
It is like megaman or like Wanderer from Shadow of the Colossus
At first, I thought that might be the case. And I think it's a cool idea.
However, the story is just getting really long. He would have to solve all of the arcs rapidly to make that a viable ending.
That, or he would need to diverge the arcs earlier. Perhaps right before Arc 3 is a vital time.
solve all the arcs rapidly
How long do you think it would take if Subaru didn't die hundreds of times? If you took out all the loops in the anime right now we'd have about 2 episodes of content.
The story could always just end.
You know, all open ended.
He's gonna do that this week when talks to Betty which lead in telling him about Satella's known history.
Best royal candidate with the best bodyguard passing by. Half elf 100 years old virgin with oni and magician bodyguards need not to apply.
The Witch has insurance against that. His love for Emilia is not going to let him abandon that path. He could take that theoretical vacation, but everyone he knows is already involved with dangerous situations.
What happens if the save point is moved while he is on vacation?
There is a lot of very rational fear from Subaru about Return from Death. While he has more confidence that he will return, he can't really be sure about that. The problem with his power is that he does not know enough about it and it may be subject to change. For instance, he could have a finite number of lives and it's something like 900. But he wouldn't know it and after 500 he could get careless. And then 900 approaches quickly and he doesn't come back.
A lot of Subaru's fear is because he doesn't know how it works. He can only take guesses.
Because Satella is sealed and she's stronger than him.
If the save point is moved while he's on vacation then he's enforcing Satella's will even when not doing anything related to the Witch's Cult.
Maybe all she wants in that case is for him to live a happy life in her world.
Or she could use it to send a message to him. He also reeks of the witch's scent so he's going to get caught up in things.
Granted, I don't think it's a bad idea.
But maybe it might be worse to do it. You'd lose a life of 50 years, your children wouldn't exist, at the end you'd lose all of them and they wouldn't be real. Everyone you interacted with would forget you.
I mean, there's more pleasant moments in that life, sure, but it also just gives him more to lose.
What if the AU was real, and he wakes up again in the loop 2 after his whole married life
When will the shota, his master, Anya and Cat trap maid be animated?
I'm not sure how to react after reading your theory.
looks like it the ep end on chapter 15
Not after Subaru is through with him.
Where the fuck can I find a torrent for this shit manga? Nyaa and bakabt have fuck all.
I actually think it's strangely romantic. If it were true, it would mean that this is a story about
falling in love, over and over again, and being willing to do anything to be with someone. If so, then the logical ending would be getting Satella/Envy to let him go so that history can move on.
Also it creates a huge irony. Subaru's biggest mind-fuck is that he is forgotten every loop. But if the theory is true, isn't the witch is forgotten by Subaru at the beginning of every single loop? So she also has to deal with him forgetting about her every single time, which may be why the Witch of Envy has been reduced to just saying I LOVE YOU over and over and over.
Now you remind me of Muv-Luv, surely that will end in a high note in a certain ALTERNATIVE universe rightttttttttttt?
That's actually what I thought after I wrote that last thing too. And that would not be a bad thing. The world needs more Alternatives.
So are you saying the Witch is basically mindfucking herself over and over? Holy shit, the amount of suffering for literally everyone.
go to mangafox and you are a patented faggot
go buy it and ask you mommy if she got some more money also for that other manga
the only shit we can chose is torrent! it aint buyfag shit, and even so i print my shit with replicator and paint them couse i spend nothing on else that are my car and PC
There are multiple places where you can download scans far more reliably than a torrent. You're just to stupid to know what they are.
the only shit we can chose is torrent!
Fucking idiot. Don't spoon feed him
too stupid to know what they are
*ignorant , the fact is not knowing anon-kun
stupid is a mom that isn't smart enough to chose abortion after the rape that brought to us an useless retard that doesn't know the difference from not knowing or being stupid
You don't know because you can't fucking lurk or google, just like most underage retards here. You're fucking stupid because on top of that you automatically assume torrents are the only option and never even bother to confirm if that's true before idiotically believing it and spouting off like you know shit.
in the last 12 years i managed to lurk enough to understand that torrent is the first choice so , i think to know my shit,
i managed to download at the time Underwater rayromano with torrent and time ago the only thing i couldn't download from it and really pushed me to the Lurking point of reading moonrunes was valkyrie complex after it become completely unavailable, and over 300gb of shit i still believe that my time researching for a fucking torrent before it get washed away, is surely the best and quickiest choice.
Yeah, that's my theory. It's basically
she cannot let go of the person she loves, so she keeps going back to be with him, when he revives her, she's a bit more crazy each time. While we think it is about Witch breaking Subaru's mind, the story is really about her love for Subaru breaking her. I actually sort of hope that I am right, because I like the idea. But, I also think the author has great big-picture ideas and will do great. I was sort of thinking of an ending going to something like the Witch being sealed once and for all, but since she loses, she activates RbD, if she has the ability, thus going back in time where she last set a checkpoint for herself. And that checkpoint might be the start of everything: Subaru shopping in a convenience store.
That's a really interesting theory, but how would it start in the first place?
Don't worry, Subaru will wake up at the same time & place as usual this Sunday~
So no delay confirmed?
Noice. Elevens got cucked
I have a few explanations for it and they are all slightly different twists on the same thing.
400 years ago the Witch is sealed, however, the seal is not perfect so she can still influence the outside world. She begins to plan her escape and formulates a plan. She uses magic to find various things she needs for the plan (and she has a lot of magic, she has all of the other Witch's powers, she can likely see different futures, etc. She realizes that she needs Subaru for this plan. Meanwhile, she indirectly begins to setup the conditions for breaking the seal.
Emilia is necessary for this, to serve as a host for Satella. The Witch of Vainglory wants to take Emilia to prevent the Witch of Envy from using her to break the seal. However, Emilia's magic is strong, she freezes everyone in her entire village and she herself is frozen for 100 years. 6 years before the start of the story she becomes unfrozen and contracts with Puck.
The question is, why did she unfreeze? Everyone else she froze is still frozen, she is the only one who is no longer frozen. My thoughts are that the Witch of Envy freed her and at this time, either connects with her, or places Satella, an aspect of herself, in Emilia. However, she cannot fully take over Emilia, just subtly influence her most of the time. She does so to get her to become a candidate for Queen.
She knows that Subaru can be used to help Emilia become Queen and help unseal her. So she gets Subaru to the world and she may have realized that Subaru would love Emilia and that was part of the qualifications. Satella influences all of the events leading to the Loot House. Subaru makes the contract by promising to protect Satella and gains Return by Death. Later, Satella actually falls in love with him and decides to repeat all of that. So she goes back to 400 years ago... and there you have it.
But why would she choose Subaru, of all people in all worlds?
Maybe he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when she was looking for subjects.
so clowndick does actively trying to impregnate ram? i thought it was just normal mana transfer touching everywhere..
or did it escalate after "that" happened to rem?
Because out of everyone possible, he is the one person who would succeed. There are a lot of requirements for the person. Subaru fits all of them. There are a lot of different situations that he needs to navigate and he is the exact right person for the job. Otherwise the witch would not have chosen him.
That's the theory, anyways. He is not just random but he is the one.
I think I'm going to wait a bit before seriously judging or making any elaborate theories, so I can get a better feel for how this story progresses.
Still, I kind of doubt Subaru was the only one who could fit the role, aside from the fact that he's Subaru and the witch specifically loves him. There's really nothing special about him other than that.
imagine if elevens get the delay, and we arent.
Ram > Rem
Ram is a dirty clownslut. Rem a best.
Clown is better than Subaru therefore Ram made the correct choice.
She was with clown long before Subaru was in the picture, so that was never even a choice. Why would you even want to NTR the clown in the first place?
Subaru technically reverse NTR'd the clown by the way. Because Ekidna.
What happened and how is it "reverse"?
Clown's black-hearted wife like to know about things, to the point she calls it a deep love. As of right now she "loves" Subaru because of his respawn ability, and had done a number of things to him.
Well mind breaking Subaru was involved so.
Well, Subaru's life just sounds lovely.
POST YOUR FAVORITE GIRLS.
I NEED PICTURES.
I can guarantee you that this is going to consist of 80% Rem, 19% Betty and 1% other.
I haven't gotten far enough to have any yet and it's not right to pick one from spoilers.
Yeah, is correct.
Just look on Pixiv, that's where I got my load of Rem/Betty. Emilia can die in a ditch, she's boring as fuck.
Who is the pants man?
Emilia is perfect
You'll find out.
Rem a cute
Tell me about Rem. Why does she love the Subaru?
It's a big list.
I don't think I can fit that within 2500 characters.
The best way to summarize why she likes him without going on a tangent and spoiling.
Would be because he exists.
Her and Ram made me like maid uniforms.
From what I picked up from spoilers, he fought a dog or something.
I believe we need a new thread, friends.
Its actually alot more than that. Sure that's what started to make Rem trust Subaru, but they missed out alot of other things.
I wonder if it's possible to quote posts from archived threads.
Well here I try.
Oh man, they missed out alot if you think it was just dogs that made Rem fall in love with Subaru.
On second thought, I guess that's not really the reasons but... oh well.
This user was trying to translate & summarize this last thread.
I don't know what actually happens but damn, even that one sentence indicates it's something diabeetus inducing.
Reminder that Emilia is an easy girl
I remember that scene, it made my heart hurt
it hurts being such a pussy for this kind of shit
I know there's more to it, but I just felt like giving an uglier and less involved answer based on my limited knowledge.
I'm actually a little annoyed from reading this right now and remembering some other spoilers.
What the hell is wrong with Subaru? There's no way this girl deserves to only be a second wife, and only so long as Emilia approves. Why is he that obsessed with Emilia when they aren't even in a relationship and there's a much better girl confessing her love for him right there?
He's like a baby duck or something.
