Those are some weird examples to bring up in a thread discussing Re:Zero. Subaru clearly has both a sexual drive and is at risk of looking too conveniently intelligent if anything.

Laughing like a retard I'll give you, because although I think it fits in really well with him masking his deteriorating mental condition, I can see how that would be immersion-breakingly obnoxious to some people.

The problem with re:zero threads is the fanboys who defend this shit like it is gold and bash anyone with any criticism. Yes I know the mc is only pretending to be happy and annoying to not focus on him potentially dying at night and I get that it is all a front but the fact still remains the voice still grates my ears.

Let us compare the mcs for the top shows this season and see where the mc ranks

Jousuke Higashikata
Ikoma
Sinbad
Ushio Aotsuki
Sakamoto

This list is in no order but I can't see how anyone can make the argument that Subaru is better than any of these guys on here. Everyone on this list is based and doesn't act like a over energetic faggot who has to throw up when he can't keep pretending to be happy.

Luke Edwards
Luke Edwards

The lyrics actually fit Subaru perfectly, not bad.

Nobody is trying compare him to other MCs, but the main problem stems from the fact that people try to strawman or just outright don't understand where MC is coming from.

If you're going to criticize something at least know the fucking material first.

Hunter Sullivan

The other characters have gone through terrible pain and anger yet they handled it a lot better than Subaru. Honestly his antics are just annoying but I understand why he does it.

Christopher Edwards

Everyone on this list is based and doesn't act like a over energetic faggot who has to throw up when he can't keep pretending to be happy.
Just going to point out right now that if Re:Zero featured a Kirito-clone, it would be incredibly boring. Someone like Sakamoto doesn't even make sense to compare to this setting, as the whole point of Sakamoto is that the entire setting of his series conspires to make him look as cool as possible.

the fact still remains the voice still grates my ears.
And that, however, is a fair criticism. I don't mind his voice, but there are plenty of characters I can't stand the voice of whom others never seem to mind.

I think you're trying to compare things that shouldn't be compared user.

In Sub's case, the despair he suffers through isn't some plot device to make him 'stronger' and more likable, it's a much more realistic type that exists just to weigh the protagonist down.

It's actually enjoyable to watch Sub work his way through these situations that don't exist only to make it so the shounen protag can gary stu his way through every other negative situation

Say its another transported to another world anime

For one, nobody says that the LN is shit. People are promoting the WN because it has more content, the LN improves on the pacing problem considerably.

Say it's a harem

Say its another transported to another world anime
This series is like the monkey's paw of MMO tropes, basically he gets what he wants in a way he never wanted to get them. Not to mention the author who wrote the series hates, HATES self-inserts, OP MCs, wish-fulfilling and harems. He is also a sadist, an actual sadist mind you, which permeates through multiple levels which can be seen through his writing he also enjoys making his fanbase suffer.

Literally nothing like SAO

Xavier Harris
Xavier Harris

Exactly, the story isn't great by any stretch of the imagination and is just suffering porn for the mc. That is all that it is and they are trying to place it on the pedestal as if it is leaps and bounds better than something like Log Horizon. It does nothing exceptional in any area besides making your suffering boner stiff. If I wanted a time rest series, I would have watched Erased, least that show has progression

Guy gets transported to a new world and isn't scared about the fact he may never see his family again.

How about he gets angry that in his safe boring life he had food, shelter, saftety....but do we explore that? Fuck no. Wtf am I even watching at this point? How can you guys type out long winded responses about how realistic this faggot is when he is the furthest thing from being realistic as possible?

The people who spend so much time defending this story kind of puts me off to finishing it? I shouldn't have to wait to get balls deep into the story to figure out what's ailing the MC. It should be evident from the beginning. I mean you can reveal things later, of course, but it should be evident from the get go.

Look at Eva: It's pretty evident from the first few minutes that he has daddy issues. Not episodes, but minutes. We can tell from his actions that he is reserved, holds back compared to extroverted Misato. Then when The anticipated meeting happens he rejects his calling only to get forced into piloting the robot by his manipulative father. All that in less than 20 minutes.

We didn't have to wait later in the story to understand why the MC makes the decisions that he does. From what I gathered so far, yes it seems like he does care about others and his situation sucks, but I don't understand why he's so hung go about saving all these girls. Maybe the first one, but not the rest. He just feels like he has some kind of savior complex. Even the MC from Konosuba was more fleshed out and a proper character even though his show was a parody comedy.

Austin Myers

I gotta question that is way old but whatever. Why didn't Subaru ask to be trained by Reinhart? I mean Reinhart is extremely powerful and giving Subaru some fighting power could help him out. Seems like wasted potential.

Anime-only watcher here. I've already worked out the gist of it. You're simply not paying enough attention.
From what I gathered so far, yes it seems like he does care about others and his situation sucks, but I don't understand why he's so hung go about saving all these girls. Maybe the first one, but not the rest. He just feels like he has some kind of savior complex.
I don't know what kind of amoral scumbag you are, but if I have the ability to go back as many times as it takes to save someone who's apparently a dear friend of someone I've fallen for, then I'd bloody well do that. At the very least I wouldn't give up within the first dozen attempts.

Luis Mitchell
Luis Mitchell

It's not just daddy issues, you've probably just read the copy-pasta didn't you?

Jonathan Price
Jonathan Price

I thought that was the point of the most recent episode.

Does this actually turn people off? Subaru has this try hard funny guy personality that is hit or miss and often times just miss. The show makes a point of it that often people don't get his jokes and at most they just appreciate his intention of trying to be happy or to make them laugh.

The thing is, in the most recent episode, the show made it obvious that these scenes weren't supposed to make you laugh. They were quite obviously presenting a character flaw and everybody in the show saw his behavior as a problem.
I can't talk for everyone, but I thought while Subaru was obviously annoying, his behavior was relatable to some extent. He was desperate as fuck to do the right thing and make others like him that he ended up being an obnoxious faggot. Though since we could see his reasoning, instead of starting to hate him I actually ended up pitying him, which is fine.

It's shit like this that makes me think how difficult it must be writing a flawed character. Either you make him "not actually flawed" by including flaws that aren't really flaws and only end up making them better in some way, similar to how waifu characters have flaws that always end up making them cuter in one way or another, or you give them actual flaws and by that I mean flaws that actually make a character less likeable to a degree and everyone starts hating them.

Pic related. Add Subaru's face and change the text from "stop being shy around" to "try to save" or something similar and you get Subaru.

Sure my mother and siblings I would risk it that many times but some girl I met and have a slight crush on? What are you 12? No guy (who isn't a total autist) would go through all that crap for someone like that. Fuck out of here with your shit.

Landon Campbell
Landon Campbell

Isn't that the point? I thought he was annoying at times because he was forcing it to much and over compensating to make sure everything would go right. That's why they thought some things was unsettling and off about him when he was being all cheery last episode. Who knows how annoying or crazed a person might get when they've already died multiple times and know they will probably die many more times.

Have known for weeks and is probably a valuable ally to have. What's more - I've met barely anyone in this new world and it's already clear that a great deal of people are either out to kill me or would mug me for the sake of it. What's more, Emilia brought me to this mansion - so it presumably should be a safe place in theory, so there's a whole load of great reasons to get on side with the people here.

simping moron.
It's 'simpering', moron.

No guy (who isn't a total autist) would go through all that crap for someone like that. Fuck out of here with your shit.
If you have the power to go back every time you die, then you, at least in theory, have some control over who lives and dies. That means you have a responsibility to at the very least save people who you like and/or are of use to you as many times as you can in case the save point moves again.

So I am trying to understand this.

Instead of you know acting like himself when he was in the human world. How dumb is this shit?

Then after he got killed several times pretending to be someone he wasn't, he has the bright idea of working hard as a servant like he did the first time as hard and cheerfully as he can to get everyone in the mansion on side with him.
ftfy
And it rather amusingly seems to have worked. Sure, he broke down and wound up crying his eyes out in Emilia's lap, but she told Rem that she trusted him. Not how he intended it to work, I'm sure, but definitely a step in the right direction when it comes to gaining their trust.

It's very clever writing, that remains consistent with Subaru's original sense of strategy too. He tries to generally emulate things that worked before (although he often fails), while learning more about the events leading to his death.

Is the manga not being translated anymore? The latest release is 3 weeks ago but the korean scans are like 10 chapters ahead

Ayden Peterson

That was not my point, he is suffering, he is trying so hard to be "normal" and "cool" that it instead makes him wierd and off-putting. I'm sure most of us at this board has experienced something similar.

It is a bit edgy, but that doesn't necessary mean bad.

get 'gist' of it
already past episode 5

Nope. Should have gotten the 'gist' of it by episode one. If you didn't then the story failed.

Also, unless you fall deep in love with people you just met it takes time to forge those relationships. You might find someone agreeable and nice, but is it really worth going through that much pain and suffering in order to save an acquaintance? I understand that he is alone in this world and by himself, but it's not as if he expressed any distress being in a new world alone. He was really excited. You can infer that his other life must have sucked, but all I'm doing is filling the blanks that the show left me with.

In order to avoid addressing these issues they throw you into a crazy subplot to divert your attention. Yet, from what I recall in episode one he was more concerned about the woman who saved him rather than his own well being. It felt wholly unrealistic.

Do not go gentle into that good night, Subaru-kun.

The poem subtly matches all of his sufferings, in my opinion, despite the poem being originally intended for someone else.

Julian Cox
Julian Cox

Should have gotten the 'gist' of it by episode one
Episode 1 gives you the premise and introduces the MC as well as a few other characters. That's what first episodes usually do.

Oh I see. You're complaining about episode 1 still? I thought you were complaining about the mansion arc in that other post.

Yet, from what I recall in episode one he was more concerned about the woman who saved him rather than his own well being.
In the first few loops he's probably still assuming that he's dreaming or hallucinating or something, and after that point he's realised that dying is just going to bring him back to that point - and by that point he's already also realised that the person he has spent the most time with in said world is in grave danger that very evening. It's a perfectly reasonable progression of events.

Another anime-only here.

Let me give you a few insight of what I've gotten from epi 1 alone, that I think you were NOT paying attention

Its literally in the first few minutes

Subaru is in a conv, reading manga, alone with a poker face
Sees a couple of STUDENTS GOING HOME
Makes a depressed face, closes the manga and puts it back
proceeds to buy INSTANT NOODLES and snacks with the same face
pays, leaves and complains about being tired even though he spent the entire day at home
ia transported to a new world
gets excited

You dont need to be a professional to know what this shit meant.
I could go on if you wanted to, since you seem to not have payed enough attention

Dominic Butler
Dominic Butler

His dream basically comes true, he's transported from his shitty life into the stuff of light novels and anime, but he learns the hard way that almost everything he knows about a typical plot doesn't apply here.
Except for one thing: Emilia. Cute, tsundere almost to a cliche at first, and obviously sporting the air of a female protagonist. Now she's the one anchor he has, the one source of stability in a world that has almost gone out of its way to prove that he knows nothing about it. I personally think it's pretty reasonable for someone like him to latch onto her.

I got up to the part where he finds out that the maid is trying to kill him, but I am still complaining about Subaru's lack of character introduction in episode 1. There are ways they could have hinted at his situation without leaving us with having to wait so long to find out.

It's poor storytelling.

He has infinite retries. If he wasn't a complete dumbass, the entire season would be 2 episodes long. His biggest flaw is that he gets attached way too easily. He can't even move past the fact that no one remembers him from his previous cycles. Rather than feeling relieved he can redo everything perfectly, he laments that he has to start from the beginning again.

What things do you honestly need to know that weren't already given to you in that first episode? You're just complaining vaguely at this point. If you reply, then try to be specific.

Ian Bennett

I'm no self-insertfag but it's doesn't shatter my suspension of disbelief.

Logan Rodriguez
Logan Rodriguez

If he wasn't a complete dumbass, the entire season would be 2 episodes long. His biggest flaw is that he gets attached way too easily.
Oh look it's another user who would have sold his phone and lived a secluded life for a bunch of years before finally being mugged and killed at some point, and then resetting.
If 90% of people were in this situation, this series wouldn't have even hit the second arc for dozens of episodes.

Leo Murphy
Leo Murphy

Guys we all assume subaru got into this fantasy world with the ability right? but what if he was just a normal guy transfered to another world?
Curses must be placed with the touch of someone else right? Here is where subaru got his curse (power)

Right when he made his promise to save "Satella"? It's kind of funny that this scene is actually shown right before he's brought to the fantasy universe too, in both the anime and the LN. It probably retroactively screwed him over and formed some kind of contract.

Brandon Campbell
Brandon Campbell

They didn't even add this scene in the anime. This was after he requested a position to work as a butler in the mansion.

Hunter Ward
Hunter Ward

What made the four days in his mansion so important to him.
From an anime-only perspective, his waking up to them not remembering him still had some emotional impact (seems like it wasn't as much as you had though), but I think it was a worthy sacrifice to rush that 4th episode, because it would have been really obnoxious to have had to wait until the 5th episode to find out if the save point had moved.

Owen Bailey
Owen Bailey

Maybe, but that would only work if saying her name got her attention, like a Voldemort spell or something.

Also doesn't explain why she wouldn't just turn one of the which cult members instead since they all love her and with thier own power plus infinite respawns could easily revive ehr

Kayden Russell

I figured out the most generic/non-specific shit ever

Duh. That's my point. We know that he's a hikkimori. We know he is not going to school. He even mentioned that he plays games all the time, but that's it. From that you are inferring that he is unhappy with his life, but we have no specifics. We can infer from his actions that he doesn't give a shit about his family, but why? Why is he is so overbearing? Why isn't he more worried about his current situation? What is he so eager to run away from?

His introduction is so generic and not specific at all. It leaves more questions than it does answers actually.

I did though.

In Eva it's clear that he's mad at his father for not being in his life before they even meet. The fact That he sent an employee to pick Shinji up rather than himself is clear evidence of this and Shinji's ripped up letter is a clear example of this.

We know that Subaru doesn't want his hikkimori life, but that's not enough to explain his other actions in the show. The biggest question being why he is not concerned about the people he left behind? Are they dead? Are they alive? Are they just assholes? What about his parents? What about siblings? Aunts? Uncles? Pets? Was he adopted? Why do I have to wait until the 3rd act to get that answered?

That's your big hangup?

Well, take the information you know, and form an inference based on what you know.
He most likely doesn't have many living relatives, almost certainly doesn't have any pets or siblings, and probably isn't close to either of his parents. What am I basing that inference on? Simple. I'm basing it on the very fact that he's apparently not concerned about the people he left behind!

The logically consistent and obvious answer to your questions was staring you right in the face.

Aaron Sanchez
Aaron Sanchez

In his attempt to get back to the mansion he and Rem are captured by the Cult of the Witch, an evil cult who worship Satella the Witch of Envy, and schemes to bring the Witch back into the world.

Here's where the hell starts: 25 chapters of constant death, torture, and unspeakable horrors by the Witch Cult.
Subaru and Rem are tortured, mutilated, and killed by Betelgeuse, the Bishop of Sloth.
In one of the loops Subaru finds his way back to the mansion alone, only to find the whole village piled in a mountain of corpses, Ram mutilated in front of them, Emilia dead in the mansion, and an enraged Puck going out of control, freezing the entire region and instantly killing Subaru.
In another loop Subaru is driven insane from the torture he receives from Betelgeuse, who rips apart Rem in front of his eyes piece by piece.
This insanity lasts a whole loop as Rem tries to carry Subaru who has turned into a drooling madman and make back to the mansion. At the end of this loop, the two are again captured and tortured, but this manages to snap Subaru back to sanity thanks to his anger.

Damn. Jesus christ, I sorta hope Subaru goes full edgemode and marries Satella.

Bonus points for taunting Emilia and co. with the fact that he's died thousands of times and lived years of constant, extraordinarily painful death to save them, and all he's gotten in return is pain, suffering, despair, and rejection. No one even believes the poor man about Rem.

Someone give Subaru a fucking hug, I don't care if it's Satella.

Colton Sanders
Colton Sanders

It was literally 7 episodes ago. Since then he's been through and put himself through the hardest time in his entire existence for the sake of people who don't give a shit about him.

Regardless of how distant he is from his family, unless he doesn't have one or was physically or sexually abused by every single one of his relatives everyday of his life since childhood, then it's perfectly legitimate for the viewer to wonder why on Earth he would completely block them out of his mind.

She only leaves him for a short while, because he fucks up and makes a fool out of himself and her and breaks a promise with her.

She's the type to take promises pretty seriously so that hurts her a lot, and he becomes to afraid to go to her and apoligise thinking that she despises him now, when in reality she would have accepted an apology sooner. Before he does it, he trains and fixes all the problems he did, and she forgives him.

But then I'm reading that his father is an asshole so does that mean his father is alive? Is he rich? Did his parents leave him a huge inheritance? Is he an orphan? Is he poor? How can he afford to live that lifestyle with no job? Does he even have a job?

These are not just 'hang ups.' These are legit questions. Addressing these early on makes Subaru a legit character that people can empathize with rather than coming off as some unrealistic flat and generic character.

This is why Re:Zerofags have to keep defending Subaru and spoiling everyone. It's because of it's piss poor storytelling.

Read the rest of the thread, she leaves for like half an arc maybe because he broke a very serious promise to her and rem just comforts him.

Michael Foster

She doesn't just comfort him user. She does more than that. His road to badassery was all thanks to Rem.

Rem is a maid, Emilia is a princess...sorry user bu the princess automatically wins and she is a cuter. Why would he pick Rem over her?

Connor Davis
Connor Davis

Did you not see the constant "I'm going to be sick"?
Did you not see the complete emotional breakdown?
Of course it was over the top, it's the actions of a man who is on the verge of losing everything he holds dear.

He's in an insanely stressful situation, not only has he literally died several times (hello PTSD my old friend), but he's trying desperately against a clock to try to fix everything he knows will be going to shit in a matter of days.

If he was acting logically and held together it would be beyond shitty writing, he's portrayed exactly how he should be, an emotional trainwreck trying to hold it all together with an over the top smile.

Surly yall have met someone in life like that at least once. Someone who acts carefree, bubbly, and happy despite the fact that their home life belongs on COPS.

Aiden Phillips

He's still weaker than Rem was. Still better than getting rekt by absolutely nothing.

I like it when Subaru pats my head. When your hand brushes through my hair, I feel like we’re connected.
I like Subaru’s voice. My heart feels warmer every time I hear you speak.
I like Subaru’s eyes. I like how even though they’re usually sharp, when you’re gentle to someone, your eyes will be the same.
I like Subaru’s fingers. Even though you’re a boy you have such pretty fingers. But whenever you grip them it lets others know that they’re undeniably a boy’s, those thin, strong fingers.
I like Subaru’s way of walking. I like how whenever we walk together, you always tilt your head back to make sure that I’m following you.
I like Subaru’s sleeping face. It’s defenseless like a baby’s, and the eyelashes a little long. When I touch your cheeks it becomes an expression of relief, and whenever I playfully touch your lips you never notice…my chest hurts when I see it, but I still like it.
Subaru says he hates himself. Looking at it this way, then Subaru has many good qualities. Rem wants Subaru to be aware that she knows these points.

Rem is best girl.

R: Rem believes. No matter how hard things get, even if it seems Subaru will lose, even if the world won’t believe in Subaru, even if Subaru doesn’t believe in himself ––– Rem will always believe…
That the Subaru who saved Rem is a true hero.

S: No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t save anyone.

R: You have Rem. You saved Rem, and now she’s here.

S: I, who haven’t accomplished anything and possesses nothing – no one would ever properly listen to me.

R: You have Rem. As long as it’s Subaru’s words, I will listen to them no mater what they are. I want to listen.

S: No one expects anything from me. No one believes me either. I…I hate myself the most.

R: Then Rem loves Subaru.

S: Even though I’m like this, it’s okay…?

R: I’m fine if it’s Subaru.

R: I won’t accept it if it’s anyone else.

These are not just 'hang ups.' These are legit questions.
No they're not. None of those questions matter, and none of them add to Subaru's character in any way. What does it matter if he has distant parents, or an inheritance? What does it matter if his parents were rich or not so well off?

At most, you could assume that Subaru is a bit of an entitled asshole, or confirm that he isn't. So what?

You're getting strung up asking questions that add absolutely jack shit to the story if they're answered.

It's funny because the way he "loves" Emillia is the same way Satella "loves" Subaru. It seems like he's using that as a tool to justify and meet his ends. Its more like an obsession rather than actual love. That's probably why he loved Rem enough to kill himself twice over her.

Charles Cook
Charles Cook

From that you are inferring that he is unhappy with his life, but we have no specifics. We can infer from his actions that he doesn't give a shit about his family, but why? Why is he is so overbearing? Why isn't he more worried about his current situation? What is he so eager to run away from?
And why do you need that at the first epiasode?

Same as above
Even on Eva you didnt have any info dump on the background, and by subtle hints you got that Shinji had daddy issues

From small hints on the whole first episode, you got that Subaru has some kind of family issues since he has no attachement to his previous world.

He is not in a club, he doesnt have anyone to take a peek at mangas in a convenience store together, he has no one to cook for him. The first attachement that he felt was with a silver haired half-elf that saved his life and gave him attention - and he knows that she will die in a few hours

It's literally all in the first arc who he is, then the mansion is to show why he acts like that - and its only 8 episodes out of 26, you dont need one past info dump this early

I am literally laughing reading this thread. There's those LNfags or WNfags that are literally thinking that they are the best. This is just going to be like all the other LN anime where they always say. "It's going to get better I promise." or "It was better in the LN.". This is super fucking hilarious. You guys are literally defending nothing. Subaru is a proven idiot. He has a so call trauma because his dad was successful and he isn't. But that isn't a reason for him to be this stupid and idiotic. I mean why the fuck do you need 4 times to notice that you have a fucking reset.

That's what is implying by the students going home and Subaru buying inatant food, not when he said himself he was a neet.

He has no social circle and no one to cook for him, so he probably lives alone. He has money, so he still receives money from someone, but he still lives and is alone

John Green

Except he is an idiot, that's why in arc 3 he mans the fuck up and stop being less of an idiot till he stops being an idiot all together. His autism bites him in the ass which causes Emillia to leave him.

Autism is still better than the myriad of personality choices. You can be a Mary Sue with 0 charisma or personality like Kirito or everything wrong with betas like Yukiteru and Tanukichi or too dense to live like Ichika.

What makes a "faggot" MC? Is it Issei brand loud and obnoxious? Is it Kirito brand edgy nice guy blandness? Is it the perfected bland MC like Darling? Is it omega male shit like Shinji and his descendants?

Okay at this current arc he needs to you need a reset to figure out everything that happen to you the first time you die. Just sacrifice some reset and try to do the exact same thing you did in the first reset. DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING YET. This is the part where you need to gather information. Then learn magic. Just sacrifice some reset so that you can truly learn magic. Then after that do the only thing Subaru did right. Try to find allies. Loli is good enough but try to get the half elf too. During all of this if you never experience any bad end and can continue with your life you must have done something right to avoid that. That's a victory for you. If you don't just continue with your main plan and try to figure out and prevent that thing from happening to you or your loved ones.

I admire the WNfags if they're actually able to read Nip, but calling yourselves WNfags if you just read the spoilered pastebins doesn't cut it. Also, although I admire all of your "restraint", it sort of loses its punch when you realize we've been discussing spoilers and even have a dedicated spoiler pastebin posted in almost all of these threads. Anyone having civil discussion already knows the shit Subaru has in store and whats going on. Animeonlyfags have very little to work with (and are either shitposters or retards) and therefore keep posting the same questions over and over.

Tyler Wood

Trying not to make this list any longer, and I do find some parts enjoyable.

If they left the mansion and actually did something interesting I wouldn't complain so hard.

Then learn magic. Just sacrifice some reset so that you can truly learn magic.

He has shit affinity to magic, the best you can do is his dark mist ability which is the equivalent of pocket sand AKA fucking useless.

So although Subaru is getting OP powers through his soul steal ability or whatever, when do you think he'll be able to actually control them? Because honestly I can totally see there being a point where he's actually able to unlock the full potential of the shit he's learned, though given the nature of the series relying on Subaru's failure, it probably won't happen till the end.

Also, is his element really Shadow or was that the Witches' influence? Cause I'd see him more as a Normal or No-Type rather then shadow, considering he's an outsider in that world.

Liam Martin

He actually tried learning magic, from Puck and Beatrice. The only problem is he has such a shit affinity to magic that it would leave him drained and become a Megumin afterwards.

Joseph Rogers
Joseph Rogers

Do I really need to wholly explain to you? What Subaru did was learning magic on the sideline. What he need to do is concentrate on only learning magic during one of the reset. So, that even if he dies, he would at least have the knowledge how to do magic properly.

Ayden White

Mason Moore
Mason Moore

I attribute the deaths to confirm the reset was because he (and we) didn't know the nature of this iseikai yet. He's familiar with the genre and so are we, but both the viewer and the protagonist didn't know if this was some Log Horizon tier shit where you get respawns and its like an MMO with skills, Grimgar with final death, or really anything other then going back in time every time you die. In fact the whole reason, in my interpretation anyway, why he goes up to Emilia and is so floored she doesn't recognize him at the end of episode 1 is because he though he just respawned and she did too, which would mean theres no reason for her to forget him.

Well like I said, given his information in the situation, time travel is pretty much the furthest away from your mind. In fact I don't think anyone in their right mind would make the leap to time travel, even after his first death. I'm pretty sure he spent most of his second reset thinking it was a vision or a dream anyway, so theres your justification for that reset. He confirms it on the next one if I remember right.

And don't bring up the death where he gets stabbed in the ally, the anime did that scene terribly. One of the thugs sees him approach them and stabs him on reflex/out of fear. He didn't "walk into his knife".

Dominic Edwards

sacrificing resets
when you dont know if theres a limit
when you dont know if you can die for good
you dont even know if instead of resets, you have like 99 lives and gets back to the last save point

he did
only tried to not sleep

shit at magic
only 2 days before getting murdered

Vision is really different from full on memories user. You could sure maybe justify it for the little stuff but a full day with just after you got transported to a magical world from your normal world and the world looks like one of your RPG, I think the concept of a reset at that time will not as foreign as you think. And of course he didn't user. Of course he didn't.

Ever remember those bad dreams as a full memory like you remember every part of it? Ever got a deja vu for a whole day about everything. Also deja vu usually occurs when you have done that stuff or is trying to do it not a whole hour before.

Nathaniel Bailey
Nathaniel Bailey

My only real criticism is he doesn't spend more time learning skills.
Oh, not that guy by the way just chiming in.

But that's a criticism based on what I would do in that situation. What he ends up doing is perfectly logical. Earn trust of staff so they don't kill him, and also protect them. Sounds good enough.

Generally in groundhog day situations you don't start burning loops until at least the 10th, at least until you stop caring if there's a next one. Confidence in their unlimited or at least near unlimited value comes in high number of repeats. Maybe not entirely logical but you can see the reasoning. Instead of being 'a couple' tries, it turns into 'dozens' and then 'thousands'.

What troubles subaru most is that all the precious memories he created are meaningless.

Asher Price
Asher Price

You would get killed anyway. Sacrificing reset would at least make sure that you know what would happen. Or if you didn't reset you would at least have the sweet release of death.

Jaxon Miller
Jaxon Miller

So, catching up that the author of Re:Zero has truly sadistical tendencies, same as SAO author has a love for anal play...
S/M fans use to have a cooldown phase after a session, to return to normality.
A domme won't kick out her slave in the cold after being done with him - it is her responsibility to offer him comfort and return him to normal state afterwards. Otherwise he won't get back and the info will make its round - leaving the domme without visitors, even if she wouldn't have no bad conscience.

That makes me wonder, what kind of ending we will get, if the author is active in the scene and would use these ROI.

Luke Cook
Luke Cook

dies killed by something at night
first

wakes up, thinks something is weird, brushes it off like a daydream and dies in an alley
second

now knows that shit is weird, tries to negotiate before night time because knows its weird, gets killed by assassin
third

now rushes everything and tries to force a negotiation out of Felt before to time limit because he knows an assassin is coming and will kill them
doesnt die

Do not mix deaths with time lines. After his third death he didnt even died anymore before going to the mansion

Caleb Bailey
Caleb Bailey

SAO author

d-dont you mean the konosuba author

Isaiah Williams
Isaiah Williams

Just a reminder:

first death: sleeping, cursed (doesnt know), unexpected
he gets that something is wrong and he shouldnt sleep that night

second death: tries to not sleep, still cursed (doesnt know), suffers because of being awaken - gets killed by someone while already being near death
Now he knows someone os targeting the mansion, and considering that previous talk he thinks the target is Emilia because she's a royal candidate - goes to the woods to try to catch the offender

third death: murdered in the woods
now he knows who killed him, breaks, spends the next night at the library, other individual gets cursed and the others promise to kill him, he runs and another reset that is the fourth death happens

So now he knows that the curse is not targeted to him only, but he will still get murdered in about two days - and if another gets cursed, he will be the main suspect.

Considering how the first two were unavoideable deaths and anyone would have died and he took 4 to figure shit out, you have 1 day to do better than subaru

Parker Powell
Parker Powell

Yes. I do.

Wyatt Thompson
Wyatt Thompson

wakes up, thinks something is weird, brushes it off like a daydream and dies in an alley
This is literally impossible unless you are super dumb. Just imagine that you just got send to a magical RPG world. Now your mind is running around with ideas from anime, manga, movies or games you experience. Remember that Subaru is at least that knowledgeable. Now, you just experience your first death. You still remember your past experience. Try to talk to someone you remember, they don't remember you. With all your knowledge at that time, would you or would you not think that you had a reset? You would likely do.

Thomas Lee
Thomas Lee

Ever remember those bad dreams as a full memory like you remember every part of it?
That happens more often than you think. You won't remember having a bad dream if you don't remember the contents of your dream. Also, not remembering every part of your day is normal. Remembering everything is a disorder.

Michael Reyes
Michael Reyes

but if I have the ability to go back as many times as it takes to save someone who's apparently a dear friend of someone I've fallen for

And who is this in the story? We barely see any relationship between Emilia and the maids. They killed him and because he did chores with them for a few days he decides he has to "help" them. He's a generic nice guy.

Matthew Sullivan

Okay, lets get everything clear here. The only people that defend Subaru's idiocy are spoilerfags and anime fags. Almost nobody from the WN community says Subaru is NOT an idiot, because he is. The main problem stems from the fact that people call him a shallow and shitty MC, which is not true. Another problem is that people think he is going to stay a idiot forever, which he does not. I don't know about you people but annoying idiot MC to badass isn't really that uncommon of a trope. He isn't a static character, he actually goes through entire loaves of character development. Not to mention depths of content surrounding him, even 430+ chapters in he's still an enigma of a human being. Because he is like an ant hole where the deeper you go, the more tunnels pop up along the way. That's why when people aren't sperging out people have theories and speculations of discussion that span entire threads, multiple for that matter.

All in all, my main gripe is that people are shitting on the MC for the wrong reasons and people are defending the MC for the wrong reasons as well.

Yes, that's right. That is the only irrational/stupid death that I consider.

Not because of that, but because he thought he had powers when he first arrived, but let that pass like nothing.

I just accept because he died fast anyway, to trigger the "I know shit is weird" flag

But I still consider that the only death where you can shitpost about and say it was forced/stupid/would make things different

First death is unavoidable. Second death is where he should started to suspect something. Just remember that he was actually told that he can be a guest. He should have done that the second time. Don't leave. See if he still die. If he doesn't. No one in the mansion is actually the killer in the first place. He must have done something wrong when he was a servant. Continue if he dies with another reset. After that continue with the plan.

Well being an idiot is a start, also being extremely obsessive is another and being a full blown basket case is a good one as well.

But he did, the problem was that talk at the table earlier.

They said someone might target Emilia because she's a royal candidate, so he thinks all deaths comes from people targetting Emilia.

We know because we are watching, but he couldn't know who killed him at the second death, and because of the reset he wouldn't know anyway

Like, you could assume the mansion was being raided and the killer simply found him

Comes back in arc 4, Subaru had to burn the entire mansion down with her trapped inside it in order to kill her. We still aren't 100% sure she is dead though. But she's a wraith now.
