What the fuck is this guy's problem?
Isn't there a better way to cope with stress than acting like a clown?

Look around you. Do you think Sup Forums is a good place for asking how to cope with stress/depression?

Joshua Lopez
Joshua Lopez

yes as everyone here is chronically depressed.

Isn't there a better way to cope with stress than acting like a clown?

asking this on Sup Forums

Well

uh

Why not?

He can't tell anyone why he is freaked out or he dies, he has experienced the pain of death multiple times, he knows those around him likely hate/want to kill him, and he knows if they decide to kill him there is essentially nothing he can do to stop them.

The people on Sup Forums don't pursue effective ways to cope with depression. For example you can say people on Sup Forums use distraction through obsession.

Senpai pls

Sure, there is. You just withdraw from reality and escape into anime, manga, and games. Trust me, I'm an expert.

Jackson Phillips

Sounds pretty effective to me instead of moping, the old saying of 'busy yourself with something' isn't just for show.

Christian Price

Self loathing is another way. I can't think of a board where the board's population doesn't indulge in humor through self deprecation or just admittance of their self hatred.

Zachary Adams
Zachary Adams

Yes, and he is attempting to do that by acting like a clown. He still hates himself however but is able to keep up most of a mask. He's been like this the entire show, not just this episode, his self loathing just came to the surface after the last string of revelations.

Tyler Taylor
Tyler Taylor

Yes, except you shouldn't busy yourself with something like discussing chinese cartoons.

Colton Martin

I think the level of stress he was feeling was just keeping it really hard to not act a simple good, instead he went turbo goof so try his dang hardest to mask it.

Michael Hall
Michael Hall

He has no one who shares any of his culture, no one he can speak to about his issue. He is covering up by talking about meaningless things to distract himself while he tries to come up with a plan. He knows if he doesn't he will simply die again.

Physical labor is the best, but I don't see why Mongolian picture cave drawings wouldn't work.

Poor Subaru. Can't escape by immersing himself into 2d anymore because fantasyland is too far behind glorious Nippon and it sucks as much as the Dark Ages did so his depression just keeps getting worse.

Chase Diaz

Was all that torture for a lap pillow worth it?

James Reed

Of course not, if he kept developing a closer relationship with her he could have gotten that later.

Nathan James

Mate, most people who survive extreme life threatening situations get fucked up, and this guy actually dies, a lot, that can't be good for your mental health

Wyatt Green

I keep seeing threads about this. Is this show even good?

Don't expect others to you that, some will say it's good and others bad, watch it for yourself and get your own verdict.

Ian Baker

But what show is it? Is this the show about the witch?

All I see is threads about the guy.

David Reyes

If he doesn't do his part correctly he dies.
Even if it doesn't mean he stays dead trying to beg someone for your life subconsciously every time they see you is a good way to build up stress.

Jack Anderson

Basic premise is this

Guy gets sent to a fantasy like world all of a sudden while out shopping. Gets excited about the prospect of about life there, because of all the cliche stories about it.

The thing is if he dies, he gets sent back to a prior point in time, or a checkpoint and has to figure out a way to avoid said fate each time, and to also save those who get caught in the mess.

Isaiah Roberts
Isaiah Roberts

So why is he stressed? He's got checkpoints. I wish I had checkpoints....

Gabriel Torres
Gabriel Torres

He doesn't control the checkpoints

Cameron Taylor
Cameron Taylor

Like i said, watch it, the reason behind said deaths and what happens each loop fuck him up.

Also, he needs to DIE, and dying isn't exactly a painless process, and he doesn't want to die in the first place.

Brandon Butler

So what?

Cameron Lee
Cameron Lee

Imagine you get one checkpoint that is 3 seconds before you die.

Sounds fun right

Benjamin Collins

dying hurts a lot

Re:zero apologists are hilarious.
The mc is a fucking retard that's it, stop denying. The guy Is suspicious and instead of acting normaly he acts like a try hard

Blake Bell
Blake Bell

Why?

Levi Long
Levi Long

Because he wants to appear as a lovable goof i imagine. Probably thinks others would see him as a boring person otherwise.

I don't think I've ever noticed it as much as in RE:Zero threads.

Isaiah Robinson
Isaiah Robinson

He's trying to act normal, he's under too much stress to keep up his normal mask. He isn't exactly working under ideal circumstances. Up until this point he was able to keep up the mask, but broke after the last iteration, and not even for that long. He took less than an episode to recover to most of his former guise.

Lincoln Phillips

It's honestly not worth explaining to people that don't get it.

Because people that don't get it, aren't capable of getting it because they are too autistic to understand normal emotion.

It's easier and more productive to just point and laugh.

There are actually people on this planet right now that think it's normal to be 100% logical and collective no matter what happens.

Jack Harris

That's literally me.
I'm always cool and collected and logical
