Tennis ? I dont get it.
The stations apparently think /sp/ is more important than airing anime. So there is a chance of delay in the broadcast because of TENNIS faggotry about some hotshot they are rooting for for THREE WEEKS.
Reminder that Subaru will be as scary as this.
It was confirmed by Crunchyroll that we'll still get it on time, so there's not much to worry about.
Wow, good news from that shit site for once.
we'll still get it on time
oh thank fuck - I want that Re:Zero fix.
WHEN THE FUCK WILL YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TV TOKYO ISN'T ONLY CHANNEL THAT AIRS RE:ZERO AND IT'S ONLY FEW HOURS DELAY
How much does his personality actually change over time?
It has only been 7 episodes out of 2 cours and he's already really struggling to keep up a cheery facade. He even broke down and locked himself away for days on end last time. Things have been heading south pretty quickly.
I love this show because I'm an evil sadist, haha it's so fun to see LE SUFFERING
*wips my hair to the side*
I just love sadisting people... I wonder if the writer of this show is A SADIST LIKE ME also, wow it's so wonderful hah.
What is this man trying to convey?
I want Subaru to fuck Satella hard as she's mind breaking. At the same time she orgasms her mind fully breaks and all that's left of her is a girl who only hungers for Subaru's cock.
Why is Emilia so boring when she has best design? I'm way more interested in Satella, who looks just like her but is Hitler the Witch.
Satella is love Satella is life.
That he just loves sadisting people. It's right there in his post.
As great as sadisting is, I think people are probably overemphasizing the admittedly brutal suffering. There wouldn't really be a point if that was all there was to it and it'd be very easy to lose any and all frame of reference. If it turned into pointless torture porn, it'd really get kind of dull.
I'm sure that's the cause of this whole mess in the first place.
I'm sure that's intentional, because Subaru's infatuation feels like it gets intentionally off-putting to me. It's like he just imprinted on her and decided she was the girl he was going to fall in love with and marry, even though she's older than his mother and treats him like a child.
What is the Witch of Envy jealous of?
It is said she is jealous of everything in this world.
Thread Reminder the 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
anyways i did make a pastebin with the Q&A
Are there any anons willing to translate this shit
Let's be honest here.
Legends always blow things out of proportion.
Of course he's the strongest. However, is he the most capable or versatile?
If it turned into pointless torture porn, it'd really get kind of dull.
This. Like one of the guys in the previous thread said, though, it looks like the author is going towards a message-though an admittedly brutal one in terms of delivery-that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark things get.
I love despair, but in the end despair's just a tool you can use in stories. There's no real meaning to it by itself. Seeing characters overcoming the despair and earning the ending they deserve ("deserve" being subjective) is what really does it for me.
does he have an interesting backstory?
Sure, but she turned crazy and tried to kill everyone. It's probably not too far off. Of course, it's also said she desires love. That probably ties into it somehow.
I don't want it to be entirely overcome either, at least not to the point where he's back to his old self. However, I do want him to reach an ending he can live with even if he had to change to get to that point. A good enough sort of ending, though it might not be quite what he was aiming for when he first arrived.
Really, any situation which leaves his head on straight-ish, with hope in his heart, and the will to live would probably qualify.
Reminder this is how Subaru will look like in the future.
Yes. He actually does, he accidentally killed his mother and/or grandmother.
Foxy grandpa blames him for the death of his wife.
Well I mean, he was forced to kill his wife with his own hands so...
Was forced to kill his wife because of gluttony
Just like Subaru will do to Rem. Like pottery.
Okay so I just read the last 3 threads and have a questions about one of the theories.
It's about the theory that the Emilia is Satella during the first loop. If so, how the fuck does she just die to some bitch ass assassin? Was it that Satella was just taking over her body so she didn't have of her powers and could only use the powers Emilia could, or did she just get surprise ganked? And I just misunderstanding something?
Have you seen his list of blessings?
No, she said she was Satella just to get Subaru out of her personal space. Infact she wanted to apologize later, right before they died.
Yea okay I figured that's what it was. I was just making sure I didn't miss some super spoiler in one of the threads.
I kinda missed the moments before he entered the house, what did she say/how is it clear she wanted to apologize?
It's never gonna happen.
That wedding ring belongs to one woman and one woman only anon.
Yes, and her name is Satella, our Lord and Savior.
We will get there one day. Subaru will smile again, I know it.
tfw no cute elf witch of envy to warp time and space just so you can live
That will never happen
Are you sure? You could try dying to find out
this is a japanese oni
Really because it looks like a fucking anime character to me.
Satella is Emilia.
Satella is actively manipulating Subaru's heart to fall in love with her, but the moment she stops, he won't love her.
Satella has just been playing her 'part' as Emilia this entire time.
Everything she does is to try to get Subaru to legitimately love her and to build up his powerlevel to become her witch king husbando.
Think about it, Emilia even sometimes spouts continuity-breaking lines (e.g. sometimes she does appear to have knowledge of the other timelines), but quickly corrects herself, or intentionally keeps it as vague as possible to be able to be construed differently.
Besides, Emilia has the depth of a puddle and Subaru fell in love with her at the drop of a hat. It's kind of suspect.
Satella can read Subaru's thoughts and feelings, who says she can't manipulate them?
Satella's locked in a tower and can't leave due to "nobody from this world can pass through" barriers.
She literally cannot be Emilia
Is it the first time we get an MC who commits suicide out of sheer hope?
FOR NOW I'LL SEE YOU OFF
Hakomari did it too
That's not gonna happen faggot.Fuck you
Pls no. Haven't they suffered enough?
How popular is Rem in moonland? God damnit, I'd rather Emilia die like a bitch than Rem being killed by Subaru.
pfft, fuck those bitches.
MfW i read the pastebin.
So I keep hearing you anons suggest endings with EMT, a return to the appa stand, BMT or even
Satella and dark lord Subaru.
But what about an ending where he simply returns to his world?
Then all his deaths catch up to him and he just explodes into gore in front of that quickie mart?
Won't happen. It's a cop-out ending, and generally, doesn't have any lasting effects. Sure Subaru winds up with some character development, but it means that everything that happened was pointless in every sense. The series itself was a waste.
It's not depressing at that point, just boring.
That would be the worst and most suffering ending yet
Stop the memes, anon.
Awful, just awful
I had a dream like that once and when I woke up I felt wrecked for months
Ok, what's the worst final from Subaru's point of view?
He replaces Satella and has to watch everyone live on
and die in myriad of words.
Satella will shit him back out in front of the Appa vendor at the end for MAXIMUM SUFFERING.
He'll be stuck in the greater time loop forever. Unable to even die, he'll continue wandering, trying to find a way out, only to discover that he's stuck there as Satella's plaything, forced to dance to her tune or suffer a pain worse than death. Forever. Endlessly. His purpose, memories, beliefs all gradually become indistinct in his despair over the years, and eventually, he gives up trying and stops thinking, stops trying, and becomes the villain. He starts destroying himself, the world, and eventually his former alter-dimensional friends in anger of the futility of the world with all the powers he's absorbed from the bishops (Satella would have already repaired his mana gate/or would supply the mana), and at that moment, he'd finally stop looping, and Satella would live with her mindbroken husbando for the rest of eternity. He won't ever be able to go back, even after realizing that he's become a monster - he's destroyed everything he ever believed in and loved, and so, he gives in. He stops thinking about the reality of his situation, and fills his heart with Satella. Satella and Subaru live out the rest of eternity as tyrants in love.
Remember kids, this LN is about maximizing suffering for Subaru. Not about happy endings. The best-case scenario is that Satella helps Subaru put Rem's twisted soul back into her body, becoming Subaru's personal battlemaid.
AND WE'LL DIE, WAITING FOR A NEW DAY
At that point she only loves him for his body then.
She wouldn't pull him from a completely different dimension if it was only because he looks handsome.
Hell, we don't even know if the reason Satella pulled him in was malicious at all.
Maybe she just wants to die, and only people with Witch factors can kill other witches?
I don't think that's likely from this author. I expect full on suffering ending, or an extremely hard fought happy ending, likely bittersweet. Just going back to his world is boring and a cop-out.
There's something you don't see very often.
That's what you think, anon.
Welcome home. How do you know it was a dream?
I posted another viable theory wherein Satella loves Subaru's dad, and Subaru is just her way of getting at him.
Satella loves Subaru because he's her son (or, at least, her love's son).
Want me to post that crackpot theory?
I want a happy end theory. Subaru doesn't deserve all this hate and suffering.
When til he gets the Emilia pussy?
implying people get what they deserve
Suffering it is. This was the future he chose. He could have prevented it.
implying he chose it at all
Poor kid got dragged into this just getting some chips and ramen.
Nagatsuki writes his novel based on this, so don´t expect some kind of happy ending anon
If he didn't act like a self hating, imprinted ugly duckling and just chose happiness he could have had it. AU proves it.
AU is still N O N C A N O N naturally because his whole character is based around being the sort of guy that wouldn't chose it.
Go read Rem's AU-verse happy family story, anon.
N O N C A N O N
Satella loves Subaru's dad
Dick move. That'd be one hell of a dick move. I hope it's not this.
You read up to the part where Rem tells Subaru to run away with her and let Emila die. Then you read the AU story and you make your own canon. Happy endings all around. The witch dies, Subaru stops dying, he gets his dick wet and starts a happy family of onis with a cute blue-haired homely girl.
and you make your own canon
hey I recognize this photo
that's the Old Man in his younger days
The suffering only motivates him, there's pay-off on to the fact he is putting whatever he can to fight for his goal.
the sick part is the AU was fit in right before the chapter where rem gets her existence eaten
what the fuck man
that isn't cool
The idea is that Subaru has an inferiority complex toward his dad. Having him be integrated into the plot not only adds rationale for him of all people to be abducted randomly, but also adds internal conflict for him if he shows up as someone both as broken and as renowned as Reinhardt.
Subaru died hundreds of times to get that far, yet his dad would still be Mr. Gary Stu, just like at home. Nothing would have changed. It'd force him to question everything about himself, and, I'm sure his dad will offer him a way to transfer the curse to himself and go back to their world, alone. Satella would oblige, since her objective is his father, not Subaru.
Think of how depressed he'd be, that everything he had done, all the emotional trauma and all the waifus that died on the way were just mere collateral damage, while he worked his job as bait for his own dad. Subaru would be left with nothing.
That entire story was disturbing, what the actual fuck?
Private Dixon found himself being stared at by Corporal Lawrence with a gleaming smile.
This would be a great horror movie if this wasn't real life.
You're almost there. Just have the dad with Emilia and we're done here
I thought it was golf, it's called French Open why does tennis need a big open field?
they named like three channels, I don't know many how many they have airing it
I read this in a gay clown voice
Okay fine, Satella loses her body in her final fight with Reinhardt (killing Reinhardt in the process), so she possesses her only remaining blood-relative, Emilia.
that's literally the same as not being jealous of anything
It's the back story for this guy
and no, it isn't real life, that wiki is basically a collection of short horror stories and whatnot
here's my favourite, all the 'Test' links at the bottom add up to a pretty sweet speculative fiction/horror novella
Only if you're a filthy relativist. So basically no it's not.
everything is burning, that's like nothing burning
Amazing logic Sup Forums, you get that from incredibles lad?
Should I even bother with the threads if I haven't read every possible work of this series thus far?
Most seem to only apply to himself. I'm pretty sure it's been shown that can't do everything, even if he's invincible.
Emilia even sometimes spouts continuity-breaking lines
Does she now? I've heard she had some OOC dere moments, but nothing about acting like she knows too much.
There's some in the anime thus far even, I remember thinking to myself 'huh, that's weird' a couple times. I guess I'll parse through the episodes and try to find them.
Only if you're good at avoiding spoilers or the kind of person, like me, who doesn't mind spoilers as long as they aren't major plot twists. If you can know what's coming but still enjoy the experience then stay. Otherwise git out.
100+ years ago: Emilia is born between a unnamed human and a elf. She is raised by her aunt. Emilia befriends Betelgeuse, who is a Witch Cult member but is kind and generous and harbors feelings towards Emilia's aunt.
However, Witch of Vainglory and Bishop of Greed attacks the elven village to take Emilia.
In the ensuing battle her aunt is killed, Betelgeuse is driven mad and Emilia's powers goes out of control and freezes the entire elven haven.
Wise magical negro did nothing wrong.
So Subaru is into incest?
the second girl (from the bottom up) looks like she's constipated
elf is Satella unbound in time
human is Subaru
Subaru ported in by still bound Satella as per loop
get's keen due to genetic familiarity.
Don't know if that is Rui, Sirius or Capella.
Sirius or Capella.
So most of the names were based after astronomy, huh.
Every single member of the witch cult are named after stars.
Stars that don't exist in the new world.
I hate that the pastebin doesn't include any of the good parts.
This LN isn't only suffering it has a lot of great moments, and subaru doesn't go into a deep depression and loathe himself (at least not forever).
People who are unable to read the source LN's have a completely unrealistic expectation of the series as it does get better/good for subaru.
Also author hinted that suburu gets mana back next arc so get hype weeaboos who can actually read it
The really relevent ones usually. Pandora is supposed to be a satellite but we see how her name is related to Greek mythology of the box of madness.
Did he hint at the Gluttony stooges getting fucking murdered yet?
nah i only read part of the Q&A it was linked to me on reddit but I can't seem to find it atm, will post it if i do
What were they, I missed them I think.
Subaru's dad confirmed for a member of the witch cult.
Waaaaaait a second. Guys, guys. Remember when one of the bishops/witches mistook Subaru for the Bishop of Pride? What if his dad is the Bishop of Pride, and that's why they look similar? It's the only thing that makes sense.
That's the connection between Satella and Subaru. His dad and her both were members of the witch cult. Satella loves Subaru and keeps him safe in her own, twisted way, but only because he's her husbando's son.
Ostensibly, this was all done to lure his dad back to that world, for reasons unknown. In the meanwhile, she's getting him to free her, slowly but surely.
What if his dad is the Bishop of Pride
How on earth could two dimension travellers be justified without coming off as complete bullshit
I believe what might be going down if your theory is correct in a sense is that papa honda WAS the pride apostle, but somehow the power got transferred to Subaru, and that's how Subaru can absorb shit.
All the witches/bishops are named after stars, stars that only exist in Subaru's original world.
All the witches and bishops are related to that world in some fashion. It's not impossible to say that they might all have originated from there in the first place, or perhaps went there at a point.
Bishop of pride.
Pride is the a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
Daddy is all perfect.
Fuck sake. Not sure how I feel about this.
It had to tie in with him getting there in the first place at some point I imagine but I'd really rather brush it off and -not- go down that path
Subaru has a MASSIVE complex about it
it was all to produce the perfect Bishop of Envy, who would, like Satella, take everything he wanted from the other bishops and world at large while incidentally poisoning it all and distancing himself from anything he tried to grasp.
Possibly. That, or it's going to be something weird, like Subaru is his own father.
Regardless, I'm 99.9% convinced that his dad was the Bishop of Pride at some point.
this makes too much sense
S-so what's the good ending for Subaru?
not seeing how pride facilitated envy
We're just beginning the suffering train. Now I'm actually excited for his Dad to get reintroduced.
Sorry anon the only good ending is the AU ending. Expect two more with Ram and Bea-ko.
Thanks for reading ;^)
I remember reading all of 1-2000 or something a couple years ago.
Ironically, Re: Zero has the best discussion out of all the shows this season. Even for 4chan or Sup Forums.
What can Subaru even do with a broken mana gate?
threads filled with shitposting and people who think infinity is anything
What a season, huh?
I can see Subaru going for the bishop ending.
Seriously all we need is for Rem to die by his hand, Betty to die in a tragic fashion, and Emilia/Puck to abandon him due to the strengthening witch scent and his own dark thoughts. Bonus points for Emilia cucking him with clowndick or someone else with a political marriage.
Eventually, he'll be abandoned by everyone. Normal humans would start being able to smell the witch, and everyone would be terrified of him. Think about it, they're already getting close to that in the WN/LN.
He'd have given everything he had to the world, but no one would ever be able to empathize with him, or know what he had done. Everyone he had ever cared or had trusted him about would be dead, worse, or abandoning him. He'd have nothing, and be all alone, despite everything. And even still, his dad would yet still overshadow him as the Bishop of Pride.
That, that would break a man. The final battle would be Satella/Subaru's dad/Subaru v.s. Reinhardt/Emilia/Puck.
He only has his mind as his greatest weapon.
it is slowly crumbling
No, Satella herself is said to be a half elf silver haired beauty.
Not even slowly.
Seriously, his situation has to improve soon or is definitely going to happen. The biggest problem he has is that he has no support, ostensibly Satella is keeping him from telling others about his situation to prevent exactly that.
Twins perhaps? It'd also put into question any historical data pertaining to Emilia or Satella. For instance, could have been caused by Satella, rather than Emilia.
Emilia was said to be a dead ringer for Satella, by the other witches who knew Satella no less.
Subaru is named after Pleiades.
Jesus christ it's like pottery. New Bishop of Envy confirmed.
Maybe Satella can be his waifu at least.
Is the LN translated ?
QUICKLY, POST YOUR FAVORITE GIRL AND DESCRIBE WHY SHE'S BEST FOR WINNING THE SUBARU BOWL.
These theoryfags are driving me up a wall with all this "Subaru is Sauron" shit
Beato, I suppose.
I gotchu anon
How would a married life with Emilia work out?
I dunno about the details but it sounds like their's some shit down the road. Like, not even the AU stuff. Also, short hair.
I wonder what Rem's swimsuit would look like.
Some anon in the last thread posted this it's all I got.
I like to think after two kids she'd be wearing something other than a two-piece.
Er, fuck, one-piece.
Also imagine what MILF Rem looks like.
Personally I think Rem would use one of those two-pieces with the skirt things on them that I can't remember the name of.
If I remember right someone said AU Rem is a long hair MILF so fuck that shit.
Nah she'd wear a maid outfit because that's all she needs.
All we know is that MILF Rem has longER hair. It could just go down to her shoulders, we haven't seen shit.
Everyone loves jumping to conclusions with this series.
Subaru's gonna kill Rem because muh suffering even though it goes completely against his character!
Subaru is gonna become hitler and kill everyone though his record kill count is one dog and one apostle, and STILL goes against his character
Subaru just needs a really big hug.
And a fucking break holy shit.
Give the kid a week or two to just live fantasy life for a bit.
This. Seriously, he's going to break very, very soon if he doesn't get a reprieve from suffering.
Imagine if he had to kill Rem with his own hands. Just imagine. I think he'd fracture right then and there. God forbid if Beatrice also died, I think he'd lose his mind right then and there.
He'd be OK if he could just tell someone about his situation and get some fucking empathy/moral support, even if they couldn't otherwise do anything. He's falling apart at the seams.
Fixed it for you.
She is the best, I suppose.
he can talk to Betty about it in her library though. The library is entirely safe from everything.
And for fucks sake he isn't gonna kill Rem. The author might be a sadist but he won't make Subaru break character for just more suffering,
he can talk to Betty about it in her library though.
Wait, does he ever actually tell Beatrice that he's looping?
Is this what awaits dead memes?
she already knows, stupid ningen. She is out of loops, as I remember
The anime doesn't seem to imply that thus far, and nothing she's said has been more than implicit and easily construable differently.
no she doesn't know it
isn't she like living in another dimension? She doesn't have to know about curse, but maybe has an idea
She does read his surface thoughts about his "past lives" revolving around it even if it's vague.
Now I got the right answer
So what's the deal with his dad? I thought his dad abused him, but why would a Gary Stu abuse his kid?
Because he's just shitting theories out to further force the "Subaru will get nothing out of the adventure and only exists as a punching bag" meme.
His dad is 99.9% sure to be the Bishop of Pride. See .
Keep in mind that ALL of the bishops are named after constellations/stars that only, and I mean only exist in Subaru's world. It's a given that there's at least one major link between the witch cult and Subaru's world.
Also, supporting 's theory, Subaru is intended to be a Bishop of Envy. Even his name is another name for Pleiades in Nihongo.
This theory explains almost everything that's presently unexplained. Even stuff like Satella prohibiting telling other people about his timeloops (to prevent him from receiving proper moral support or trust), or her creating a new 'save point' after Rem died, or really anything.
The reason why Satella loves Subaru so much is probably because she loves Subaru's dad, and that love extends to his son (and is possibly her own son as well). Perhaps part of it is about getting the family together in some twisted sense by building Subaru's strength and mentality up to a similar position as the rest of the family, and to break mom out of magic prison. Given how fucked up all the witches/bishops are, it wouldn't be strange for their love to be twisted as well.
Also, the reason Subaru was raised in his original world normally until he was old enough was ostensibly because she's guarded by a barrier that repels anything that exists in that world, and Subaru's dad originally lived there. Subaru is probably the only one who can legitimately break Satella out.
Dunno, there are a bunch of theories.
There's very very very little chance that Subaru's dad is not the Bishop of Pride. Remember that one of the bishops/witches mistook Subaru as the Bishop of Pride. The only viable explanation for this idiosyncrasy is that he's related to him. Tie that in with the related astronomy and his own complexes, and it fits perfectly.
You're just making up theories when we only know Subaru's dad abused him.
Like literally everything you said you slapped together with various theories and no proof.
The ONLY thing we know about Subaru's pop is that he abused Subaru.
We don't even know the guy's name, or if he's even still alive.
Quit making shit up and trying to sell it as fact.
He never abused him, Subaru was just having an inferiority complex by being in his dad's shadow. The dad is like the Reinhardt of our world.
The fuck? I just came back from discussing fan theories yesterday and today everyone is now pulling it off as fact.
It's just one autismo who probably didn't even read the summaries.
Show is being delayed for three months due to tennis.
Or he's just a kid in his dad's shadow.
Like every kid growing up is.
What would your dad think of you if you lived the NEET life?
My dad is literally a CEO of a moderately-sized company.
I gave up on showing him up long, long ago, but I know the feeling.
10/10 would watch Nishi instead
Weeks bro, weeks.
Also, the loop is set up so that Betty is the only one he knows other than Emilia. She can read his surface thoughts which change on each loop.
In the first loop, he comes to her and she actually knows he is going to die but does nothing and is minimally involved with him.
In the second loop, he comes to her and she lets him come to his senses in her library.
In the third loop, he comes to her and she provides him with information that could help him.
In the fourth loop, she comes to him and offers her unconditional protection.
My thoughts are that Subaru's memories and reliance on her grow stronger each loop, to the point where she can sense that he has a strong relationship with her, even if she does not remember it. She actually asks him in the second and third loops about his familiarity with her.
By the fourth loop the thoughts she reads from him are strong enough that she feels compelled to protect him.
So her exact knowledge of him does not carry over or change from loop to loop, but her understanding of their relationship does carry over. So her knowledge remains the same but their bond is constantly increasing (which is probably intended since
the witch moved the save point to after their first meeting so that he would come to rely on Betty.)
he fell for the weeks bait
Didn't you hear, it's three years.
Does he still have his phone? If I were him it'd be full of cute pictures of Rem.
Quick, fellow remfag, I need the panty pic.
You know the one.
Is the episode going to be delayed tomorrow?
Not on crunchyroll at least.
I only have this one and it's of Ram.
crap wrong one. I meant this one
Thank you kind anons.
She starts falling for him in the EP8 loop or only the end of this arc?
at the end of second arc.
And damn it, why she must suffer.
It's so history repeats itself.
You can bet your ass Subaru and grandad are gonna beat the shit out of the gluttony trio, anon.
no, she will be in coma because of gluttony monster's attack and almost nobody will remember her
are julius and subaru friends after the 3arc?
I only have like 100-200 down, but I think the in-universe stories are better than most actual SCPs
Can someone spoil Subaru's family issues to me? All people ever say is vague shit about him having daddy issues and his dad being perfect or something.
He feels overshadowed by his dad, like most kids who realize they're going nowhere.
That's literally it.
Is that really it? People made it sound like he had way stronger issues than that before going into the new world. I guess that was bullshit?
We don't know. To be continued.
Subaru is *somehow* connected to the Bishop of Pride. It could be his dad. We'll see, but I feel like it's the only way to make the plot coherent and have a real reason to why Subaru was abducted, and why Satella loves him in particular.
Can't think of any other solid theories either.
For what we know so far without going into a full paragraph is:
Subaru had to defend his home
Became a Hikki/NEET by choice
Dad is the gary stu of the modern world
Dad is loved by the whole city
There is more than this but this is all what I can recall from memory.
I think your theory is likely, but I think the witch is really in love with Subaru and not his dad. Just because it seems kind of lame otherwise.
Yes, that's it.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention is a pretty big hint when you combine it with a Bishop mistaking Subaru for the Bishop of Pride.
Then what caused him to have CRIPPLING DEPRESSION?
That is really well and honestly it.
It fleshes out his character, and explains a lot of his dorky personality quirks better, but as far as we know at this precise moment, that's literally all we got.
Don't listen to theoryfags.
Why would Satella be in love with Subaru in particular from the very beginning though? Unless originally Satella didn't love him and was only going to use him, and began to love him as he perservered through the arcs. Who knows?
People made it sound like his dad was specifically not a good father in some way.
Don't know, but having an inferiority complex and his internal monologues suggests that there is something real bad that happened causing to shun himself from society.
Misunderstandings by faggots who didn't read the summaries and theoryfags.
Well the one time she talks to him it seems like the crazy obssessive kind of love that wouldn't just come from "your his son, so I love you too". That and he's the focus of all of his plans. I think the reason for it all is something we haven't seen yet.
I'd rather have Subaru keep a broken Rem around than have him kill her. If no one knows who the hell she is, where she came from, or why Subaru keeps her around, that could just make things worse.
Anyhow, I've been trying to think about what I like about this series so far, but there are just too many spoilers stuck in my head. I'll probably have to straighten it all out to think about it properly. Right now the pattern seems to be to introduce an all-too-familiar cast and scenario, with only a few hints that something is off, before twisting it around at the end and showing the first impression was more than a bit off.
I think the first thing I noticed that seemed off was actually just that Subaru was given "scary eyes" that didn't fit his apparent attitude, but that's not too strange on its own. However, the spoilers make it sound like it's actually relevant.
Having a tragic backstory or a good reason for daddy issues is what you would expect from a hero.
Well to be fair, even if it hasn't been said yet something bad had to have happened for him to decide to leave his family and become a hikki.
Nigga first if all nobody can even SEE Rem, let alone remember her.
And Subaru will not kill her. That's just as outrageous as him walking up to and shanking Emilia in broad daylight.
It just isn't Subaru's character.
He isn't some edgy tryhard.
He's a scared, confused kid who wants everyone he loves to be okay and it's killing him inside to see all this bad shit happen to them.
He has a whopping kill count of fucking 2, and one of them is a dog.
I actually think it might be better if he didn't have the best of reasons. It being a result of his envy is pretty fitting, all things considered.
Why are they suspicious of Subaru when they have spirits like Puck and Betty than can detect if he has bad intentions?
I just today animefagged the episodes thusfar and came to look in the thread. I honestly have no idea what people are talking about. Some of it is theories but some is real? I'd like to know what has actually happened, since the anime wont last that far anyway.
It being a result of his envy is pretty fitting
Being set up to become the Bishop of Envy by dad/Satella.
Keeps losing everything he tries to grasp on to.
Pride begets Envy. It's like pottery.
I'm not saying it's a good reason necessarily, but you don't do something like that out of nowhere, something or another pushed his frustration with his dad to the breaking point.
In arc 2?
Clowndick wants to test him and wants him dead.
Literally EVERY problem in the series directly involving Subaru outside of his looping ability can be directly traced back to Clowndick and the Witch of Greed.
Okay, I just read the AU chapters. Holy shit is Subaru a lovable dad.
Nigga first if all nobody can even SEE Rem, let alone remember her.
I know. People just keep suggesting that she'll be irreparably broken even if he does bring her back and that he'll be forced to mercy kill her, and that just sounds awful to me. I don't care if she "comes back wrong" or anything, since I'd still rather have Subaru keep her around despite that. Even if she ends up creeping everyone else out.
Probably because it's possible to trick that sort of thing if you know what you're doing. Maybe.
Because Subaru is an emotional trainwreck most of the time, and they can only determine present intentions and thoughts, not past or future ones, or incongruity between action and feeling. To make things worse, he smells like magic Hitler, and keeps trying to get close to future royalty.
Depends, do you want to get spoiled?
Does Clowndick ever get fucking wrecked by Subaru and co. for trying to kill everyone?
OR his dad has nothing to do with the plot and only serves as a motivator! because if Subaru dad was really that much of a big shot in the story then
1) Satella would already be out running around
2) The witch cults wouldn't be stated as missing a bishop, but that there Pride bishop was "away"
Absolutely, hit me.
Because RADIO CALISTHENICS
Not yet, the story isn't near done.
In fact I don't think we're even at the halfway point of the narrative, which makes all this wild mass guessing all the more cancerous.
>OH HEY REMEMBER HOW SUBARU MADE A PASSING REMARK ABOUT HIS DAD?
THAT TOTALLY MEANS HE'S THE PRIDE APOSTLE GUISE
AND PRIDE BEGETS ENVY SAURON ENDING WHERE SUBARU BRUTALLY SLAUGHTERS EVERYONE IN THE WORLD TO SAVE HIS MOM WHO IS LUSTING AFTER HIS DICK CONFIRMED.
In fact Clowndick could slaughter most the Emilia Team if he decides to go after Subaru properly.
Reminder its a VERY SHORT summary with ALOT of stuff left out.
Why exactly is Emilia qualified to be a king candidate? She just unfroze, walked out of her village and got that insignia handed to her?
Satella would already be out running around
Not necessarily. I thought Satella was blocked in by a barrier that blocks everything that exists in that world? Perhaps he can't break through it because he was born in that world, whereas Subaru was not.
The witch cults wouldn't be stated as missing a bishop
Perhaps Subaru's dad abandoned the witch cult without telling anyone, or enacted a plan without telling anyone but Satella, and hence is missing?
Thanks a lot. Short summary is just fine.
These fan theories are getting crazier and crazier as each day passes I swear.
finished off by Ram who caught up and pity-killed Subaru.
Why did they change this?
My sister is too kind.
is this shit translated?
Nope, he probably knows moon.
Anyhow, how closely do the witch powers actually match the sins they're based on?
From what I hear, they're typically rather nasty and aren't the sort of thing that would just make you into the typical perfect Gary Stu. If I was to think of a Pride power along those lines, I'd pick something that technically made you into the most important person in the universe to the point where nothing would continue on without you, and not in any way that was particularly pleasant for you.
Well that sounds almost identical to a guy we all know.
Anyhow, how closely do the witch powers actually match the sins they're based on?
Read the paste-bin for that one, but I'd say they're pretty accurate.
It won't be long before we start getting time lord theories or "it's all a coma dream!"
time lord theories
That one actually has existed since 2013 actually. That theory originated from Naoru.
Every day I expect less and less from the fellow man and every day I am still disappointed.
Nah. You're getting it backwards. Reinhardt is a huge Gary Stu who is beloved by existence, but it's not like he has the one power only a protagonist can have and it's not like what he does have is unsettling or nasty.
However, checkpoints and respawns with full memory is a power that doesn't really work in any hands besides that of the protagonist. The universe effectively seems to reset itself if Subaru dies, though some of that depends on whether the AUs are real or just simulations. But as far as Subaru is concerned, it basically works just like that. Time only moves forward as long as he's alive.
Really, that's a perfect Monkey Paw style Pride power.
More or less. Julius is trying to get his name back from gluttony so.
So bascially, somehow he has Pride's ability, on top of Envy's ability to steal Bishop powers.
How does he have two powers at once? Where'd he get Pride's power, if Envy is from Satella's influence? Or did he somehow acquire the Pride's power before he even got to that world?
Fuck do I know.
It's out of character for Subaru so fuck off
So how is the anime as an adaption?
Very loyal, but arguably too loyal. Pacing is a tad slow, but still decent.
It's follows the LN/WN closely enough. If it was completely loyal we'd have 10 minutes of Subaru's internal monologue. Not to mention numerous other things. Every episode.
How likely is an s2 if it does well? I wonder how many seasons would be needed to cover the whole thing by the time it's done.
Also, author will go back to writing it regularly soon right? I know he said it's just a break, but it's not uncommon for novels like that to get dropped, what if he's getting bored of it or something.
Will the anime adapt these chapters? Maybe an OVA? Or a break time?
No, this is just speculation. Some characters apparently think Subaru might be the Bishop of Pride, so I decided to look at it from that angle. Apparently anyone who is compatible will absorb the Bishop powers if they're near the Bishops when they die.
I'm not certain how much the Bishops actually need to exhibit their sin after acquiring their powers, since I heard the Bishop of Sloth actually resolved never to be lazy again. Still. I'm sure it's entirely possible that there was a time Subaru was full of pride.
I doubt it, he seems to be having too much fun by the looks of it.
It's not doing well enough to warrant a S2 (but decently overall), but Aniplex is pushing it really hard, I mean, it had a 40-minute first episode, the animation is on-point, and generally speaking, it's being promoted heavily.
Wouldn't be surprised either way. Still, Arc 4 is really really fucked up, so I don't know if they could even air that.
I just watched the first 4 episodes in a row. Was kinda expecting very typical MMO setting shit,
got time traveling crazy shit instead. have to say I'm somewhat interested
Well ranking jumped after the last episode, as it gets deeper into the suffering Japs might warm up to it more.
Is arc 3 significantly longer than the last two? Otherwise they would get to the fourth arc before the end of the season. Where do you think this season will end, given the pacing?
So is this animu any good or is it just some moefaggotry?
Still. I'm sure it's entirely possible that there was a time Subaru was full of pride.
Feels like the opposite to me. If anything, he's more guilty of Envy, than Pride. What's Envy's power?
It may be that witches/bishops are, simply put, great people who failed in their convictions and fell to the very sins that the abhored in the first place. And believe me, Subaru is the antithesis to Envy, he's the most selfless person in this entire series.
Just wait, it gets better/worse for you depending.
How do you even come to that conclusion?
Arc 3 is longer than 1/2.
Arc 4 literally has Subaru die a couple HUNDRED times before escaping. Being captured by the witch cult is some serious shit.
Well it depends, do you enjoy suffering?
But why would Subaru become the bishop of envy when there already is one? Did the witch get tired of the old one or what?
Is there a name for these memes?
What do you mean by that? Is it a sad animu? Or a really shitty one?
Has anyone read everything? Novel is on arc 6 now right?
Gluttony took control of Foxy Grandpa's wife and made him kill her. Is it out of character for Subaru to kill her? Sure, under normal circumstances! He probably wouldn't just smother her to death while she's in a coma.
What if she was controlled by Gluttony though? Oops hey look, it's a check-point right when Gluttony took over Rem! What do we do now?
recent episode has main character leaping off a cliff to his death because he couldn't figure out who murdered him two deaths ago.
That's when they kill gluttony, of course.
And checkpoints are always set where there isn't immediate danger.
So at best it'd be a day before gluttony controls Rem so he has a fighting chance.
A-Anon, don't give me a heart attack!
If anything, he's more guilty of Envy, than Pride.
And the Bishop of Sloth hates laziness and works his ass off, so is sloth still appropriate there?
Subaru doesn't need to be currently guilty of Pride or anything. Really, his current condition seems to be a conspicuous lack of Pride more than anything else.
I refuse to acknowledge this until it actually happens.
what does it mean
Sounds fun I'm gonna watch it now.
Memes. And that you must die with them, anon.
Emilia doesn't defend Subaru in the most recent episode and instead acts like a duplicitous bitch playing all sides.
I'm starting to think that Emilia is and has always been a terrible person and merely been keeping up a facade from the very beginning.
She's Satella in one way or another.
Emilia is a good girl.
Oh man, where are the anons getting broken? Those caps were great.
Anon, he was suspicious as fuck in that ep and she still decided to put some trust in him.
From Emilia's perspective she's known him for five days, and in four of those days he has paranoidly isolated himself from everyone except Betty. She likes him, was grateful to him for playing his part saving her life and getting back her pendant, but she barely knew the guy and everyone including her had reason to think he's suspicious. They aren't exactly best friends.
You mean this one?
She gives him the chance to explain himself. He doesn't and runs away. What else could she have done?
Post more, those are priceless.
Be prepared for arc 3.
You know perfectly well that everyone is overreacting the fuck out of spoilers.
Why does every fucking thing has to be a meme. Christ.
What happens in arcs 5 and 6?
IDK if this will fuck my shit up but I'll find out soon enough.
Greed mostly or arc 5
Haven't read arc 6 except for one chapter involving Rigel Natsuki
except for one chapter involving Rigel Natsuki
I want to read the books pretty bad at this point
Gonna pound some anki tonight, because fuck jewpress waiting till july to release in english
jewpress waiting till july to release in english
They're releasing in July? How much translated?
after that there will be another volume every 4 months
It's basically the antics of Subaru and his son Rigel trying to find a present for Rem's birthday and wedding anniversary.
Ten years married and still going strong.
Arc 3 is in the eighth volume of the LN
I'd be more efficient to learn moon at this point.
I feel you anon
I literally started moonrunes 2 days ago and this basic kana deck is kicking my ass
atleast I'll learn fast enough before yen press
Yeah that's what I want to do
I was planning to learn moon, but this is kinda kicking it into overdrive
I know /djt/ is probably a better place to ask this, but if I have a basic understanding of Mandarin chinese is there a lot of crossover on the characters?
Like will there be characters I might recognize?
I know at least some numbers are the same
For Kana I used realkana
The Kanji I'm using anki
realkana was great, and it only took a few days before I was able to study using all the different Hiragana and Katakana and
mostly know them
Yeah I use RealKana when I'm on my comp but with my
crippling depression I end up laying in bed and looking at shit so I might as well look at runes and shit before I fall asleep
That and no iphone for their neato app
I have an iphone, but I actually just used their website on my phone
It works fine, and that was a big reason I was able to do so much in such little time
Mate, you should most know them with 2-3 hours of study in one day, tops. Cold with another hour or two scattered over a week.
They're really fucking easy. If you struggle that much with just kana, there are a trillion other kanji that you need to learn, that constitute bajillions of vocab. Kanji meanings aren't that helpful anyway, and are usually construable if it's meaningful.
Well they do need to make Mother Empress happy.
Like will there be characters I might recognize?
Almost all Japanese kanji are the same or only slightly altered versions of the original Chinese characters, so yeah you'll probably see a lot of Chinese characters that you know. Meanings are often similar, but there's often more than one meaning, some have slight to major differences from the meaning of the original Chinese character.
In short you might recognize characters you'd know and have some idea of what the words mean, but it won't get you too far. I'd compare it to being an English speaker looking at Spanish or French and being able to tell what a word might mean because it has the same origin as an English one.
Hm interesting, Whenever I try to load it up on my phone what usually happens is I select one of the rows or hiragana or katakana and it ends up loading all of the rows
I'll probably have to play around with it a bit more actually
Kana is easy shit you guys should be ashamed of yourself.
It was really me just taking out my phone and doing some when I was standing around during this past week
sorry Does it means that in the end Subaru gets the oni?!
Only in AU sadly.
But there is still hope at least.
The author just enjoys making its fanbase suffer. He wrote those chapters just to spite us.
no. It's a few AU chapters by the author.
Which chapter does Subaru turn into Doctor Strange and
merges universe/timeline together?
For Mother Empress!
Way to twist the knife.
N O N C A N O N
Who is mother empress?
When have they NOT tried to make Mother Empress happy? Now that you think about it, there hasn't been a moment where she has not been happy.
W E K N O W
Not a hive mind kiddo
You can do it decently in a mobile? I never started to not waste precious comp time but now it broke i might try again
The first time i did i used a so horribly shit material i never made it to kanji
I want to believe.
Nickname that Subaru and his kids gave to Rem.
Wait he has more than one kid?
It worked fine for me
Just went to the website
it was formatted kind of weird so it was hard to see some of the tabs to click, but I guessed around and got it after a few tries
Anyone else think that, near the end, he'll be given a single, final reset to get through every arc in one try, with the finality of death looming over him with any mistake, in an attempt to achieve a happy ending for everyone?
No. Maybe were it a game where you could take all the skills on your final arc run. In a book through you'd literally just retread the same shit but adding lines about how TOTALLY RISKY everything is. Not a very pleasing foundation to what sounds like a conclusion.
Two kids with one in the making.
It wouldn't be the same. His hypercompetence by the end of Arc 2 would result in Clowndick deciding to get rid of him personally, and everything would be different from there.
Since we got an AU with Rem, does that mean she's going to permadie in a brutal fashion and we'll never have our waifu back?
Realkana, was it?
I'll guess I'll check it out later, maybe i'll finally put insomnia to good use
Just more evidence that he's going to have to ditch Emilia before he can be happy. Sticking with the "daughter of the witch" just isn't a good idea for him.
But Clowndick doesn't want to get rid of him. He wants to use Subaru.
So, what exactly does it teach you?
At the absolute worst, yes.
At best, it's just an AU where Rem wins by herself compared to if Subaru gets both like he'd promised Rem he'd try for,
Rem wants a harem end?
Betelgeuse did nuffin wrong. He is a wise magical negro that lives with diligence and love. A hard worker this man is. You all hating him for nuffin.
No, he'd just go undercover. Also who cares. repeating all the same shit is boring unless you the reader get something other than "HE'S FAST" in each repeated event.
It's a shit narrative concept.
Rem wants Subaru, even if she has to be the second woman.
That's some serious love right there.
Emilia is a VIXEN.
A VIXEN I TELL YOU
It's a shame that Subaru is such a shit.
Eh, I don't think any end with Emilia is going to turn out good. Whether she knows it or not, she seems to be a major part of whatever scheme or nonsense that Subaru is caught up in.
Why is Emilia #1? Rem should be #1 in his heart for all she's ever done.
Rem actually believe in Subaru from the bottom of her heart and supports him. Emilia on the other hand is really just a friend.
This is a good question. What does Subaru see in Emilia besides her being the first girl he met?
Rem probably had her poor heart shattered to a million pieces when the conversation came up, and Emilia just dumped him at the time.
Subaru's fuckin weird. Maybe he has a knife ear fetish.
Realkana? The two basic alphabets i guess, haven't checkedbout myself
Love doesn't have to make sense
So he just loves her for her body?
Well good choice then, physically Emilia is 100% my ideal woman. Rem still a best though.
someone showed me this image earlier. does subaru turn into a magical negro aswell? if so thatd be just great
not understanding he's put more stock in her as the first connection he made in this world
implying devotion is attractive despite being objectively admirable
I fucking despise white hair myself.
I'm not a /tg/fag who goes on holy crusades over elves, but Emilia just doesn't do it for me.
She needs to be protected, we get that.
But Rem is the one that Subaru's willing to go on a murderspree to save, because he KNOWS what'll happen if he doesn't stop Gluttony. The guy teaching him how to sword tells him first-hand.
Nah. Emilia's just the bait on the hook. If Subaru keeps biting then he's going to keep getting reeled in.
What kind of person is Subaru that he'd even suggest that sort of thing at all?
I guess it might make sense he'd be a bit clingy and overly attached since he didn't speak to many girls before and she was nice to him, not to mention how he died for her, but he's already thinking about how he's going to get -married- to Emilia. That's the kind of shit many would consider creepy.
It seems more like an odd obsession than love, if he was able to also fall in love with Rem at the same time.
I fucking despise white hair myself
Shit taste, silver/white hair is the best hair there is.
You can be in love with more than one person at the same time. It doesn't have to be fair, reasonable or make sense
In the first arc he acts like he doesn't even care that much about Emilia, he just feels bound to helping her out because he doesn't want her to die. Naturally by dying for her twice and risking his life once again to get her insignia back he developed something of a bond towards her.
Then he meets Ram and Rem. He and Emilia had a few days to flirt at the mansion the promised deito, but by then he already bonded with the meidos too.
Basically I can't see why Emilia has such an edge over Rem.
There's a LOT about the characters we don't know much about.
Subaru is clingy as fuck to the first girl he meets because she helped a lost kid and is kind as hell. To the point that he's willing to drop someone who loves him SO MUCH that she'd be willing to be the second woman.
Satella loves Subaru for no explained reason. Enough to drag him to her world, even.
Felt instantly falls in love with Reinhardt
though that might just be another Asspull blessing.
There's a lot of fishy shit going on that isn't explained yet but might be better explained in time.
White/silver is the haircolour of manipulative cunts
How often does Ram worship clowndick?
If you like grandmas sure.
Only on anime girls, not in real life.
Who is the white haired devil that hurt you?
Felt does not fall in love with Reinhardt. Not yet at least.
You saw those bishie sparkles when she ran into him.
You can tell those panties gained at least ten pounds in that exact moment.
None, manipulative cunts are fine too. But they're in no way best hair
There's nothing I hate more than people complaining about things not being explained before a work is finished. I'm not necessarily talking about you here.
Bruh you kidding?
These stupid fan theories getting tossed around are slowly starting to give me an aneurism.
They just get more and more out there.
Meanwhile I just wanna stay for the ride.
and hope not only that the AU gets animated, but everyone gets a nice ending that they deserve, at the least.
I wonder how mad the fanbase would be if the author decided to have Subaru marry Emilia
He would be burned at the steak
But what if
Rem still marries Subaru too?
Or, even better
Subaru somehow ends up the dragon's contractor, and marries Emilia, Rem, AND Betty?
So why does Ram love clowndick anyway? Is it just greatfulness because he gave her a home? He's just using her for her body isn't he?
He's just using her for her body isn't he
You are right on the money for that one.
Can someone tell me why this guy is referred to as wise, magical and a negro.
He is LITERALLY
fucking her to produce an offspring so he can inhabit the body and continue his quest to resurrect the Greed Witch.
Clown is pretty hot desu
Someone spoil me please, I'm already confused enough as it is. Shouldn't he just bang Emilia? Isn't this the intended ending?
I honestly have no idea. But I'm pretty sure because he some sorta twisted fetishist.
What if there's a happy ending where that happens,
but then it turns out it was just an AU and everyone dies right in front of him.
The "wise magical negro" in berserk literally raped Guts in the pooper.
That guy possessed Subaru and got him killed in one loop. That's apparently tantamount to rape.
Bullshit. I'm only an animefag but I call bullshit.
Underrated. Would ya look at that
Sure, we could say it that way and just say love is weird and needs no explanation. The situation still makes it seem like there's something wrong with Subaru either way. Planning around a hypothetical marriage with someone you met a few weeks ago, and aren't even in a relationship with, is just creepy.
I get why he's attached to her, but I don't quite get the degree. As far as the anime and manga have gone, nothing seems too strange about it. There's no reason why he shouldn't be into her, and so far he's just flirted and asked her on a date.
But if he seriously considers asking Emilia if he could have a second wife, even though they aren't even in a relationship yet, then something in him isn't right.
Crunchyroll saved us this time
That's a nice lie you have there.
Part of the reason he's so flamboyant and has so many different kinds of clothes around is because he's lived entire lifetimes as a woman, gotten pregnant, and had what would become himself when the lady body would die.
He's just using her for her body isn't he
That's a good guess. Let's see how it pays off.
So what the actual fuck is going on in this image?
Did someone leak the plot of the animu or read the manga? There are only 7 episodes so far, and this cap was from a month ago. I just finished watching the 3rd one and literally nothing has happened.
Please don't spoil it though.
Is the original clowndick a man or a woman?
The web novel and subsequently the light novel have been around for a damn long while.
The WN isn't even finished yet, and is just getting into arc 6.
This was around the very thread where the spoiler pastebin was created.
Emilia if he could have a second wife, even though they aren't even in a relationship yet, then something in him isn't right.
Could we have context on this?
There are spoilers from the LN and WN floating around.
I think I'm going to stop discussing spoilers and get back on track with what actually happens in the show. It's probably best to understand it firsthand.
OK that is not confirmed and don't go spouting that shit out. Even IF that is implied.
Do you have a link to that?
I've been searching for a while but didn't find it
Original Clowndick I personally don't know, but have reason to suspect he was a male to start with, hence why Greed witch left Betty and her future telling book in his care. Again, EVERYTHING bad that happens to Subaru in the early arcs and anything involving the witch cults that gets involved with Subaru are traceable back to being Clowndick's and greed's faults.
I liked clowndick wished he was a bro
What does being male or not have to do with that? Is the Witch of Greed his waifu, is he Betty's dad?
But the anons in said image was shown alot more than just what was in the paste-bin. The WNfags went all out around that time.
So we're basically not going to witness these events in animated form for many years?
are they even translated?
Betty is implied to be a spirit like Puck.
However, she's a much stronger version of a Spirit, directly created in Greed's image. For all intents and purposes, Betty is just a summon who was ditched at the library to fulfill a contract that will never happen anyway. Plus in a later arc the mansion gets burned down.
So we're just kinda at a loss as to what Betty's deal is. However, she's Subaru's closest friend and there doesn't seem to be any romantic interest in there. But we can hope.
hope some anons do gods work and translate
Reminder people the author HATES harems and wish-fulfillment.
He possesses bodies of his descendents (which is why it is not weird to have been a female at one point) to live longer and Ekidna technically made Betty on her own so it is one-sided.
Betty is more of a bother & sister relationship if anything, not the incestuous kind either.
Thank you very much
I'd be okay with it.
Might as well bookmark this page. Some people are translating it.
If it's still password protected, the password is the best girl.
All I know is that he also falls for Rem and tells her he'll ask Emilia if he can have a second wife.
Like, the name Rem or straight up "best girl"?
So, nothing posted there yet?
Still in search of translators
Well, I know one where 55% Chapter One is done, and it's updated most days.
Yeah, nothings posted yet. It's a work in progress, but it'll be faster than Yen Press. That's why it's probably better to just bookmark it for later.
Well, Dark Lord Subaru might be a bit weird to get used to.
But we both know how it will ultimately end. Not to mention axing Rem is bound to happen.
I swear you EMTfags are the most vicious people around.
Goddamnit it's too hard to hate Rem as I continue to read these threads.
What a best girl.
Their is some stuff done here. Just some of Chapters 1-2 though.
Imagine how great it'll be when we actually experience it, instead of relying on spoilers.
Oh come on, Emilia is obviously bad end material considering the connection to Satella.
My heart melts like PUTTY
The French open tournament could take that time slot
What we don't see in this picture
Subaru's already beaten to death dick getting fondled so Rem can have another round.
why they just don't translate the WN? yen press only licensed the LN
I wanted the Clown to be a good guy, why do characters like him are always evul? Why am I attracted to him? No homo
Did you also read Arc 3 Rem Natsuki was well?
How the fuck do people actually like Rem? Am I missing something here?
So guys, what are the chances of this getting fully animated? I have no idea how popular this series is in moonland so I'd rather it keep going in anime since I know all these theoryfags are reading the untranslated LN's.
Why are full EDs always so shit.
Don't remind me about that chapter. I don't have my heart medication with me.
It's just WNfags discussing the WN of the series. You will find out by the end of arc 2 and during arc 3 though.
I hope you're ironic anon
After arc 2 ends she becomes an ABSOLUTE sweetheart. That's all you gotta know.
No fucking clue.
Just wait she becomes an absolute sweetheart
So are people just forgetting all the terrible things she's done to Subaru? Just because she turns into a 'waifu'?
I want the grandmas to leave
She never did them.
You seem to underestimate what Rem is capable of anon.
Because in her perspective, she didn't do them.
Remember, the only reason that is even in our memories at all is because Subaru can loop.
In loops 2 and 3 he was a distinct threat and had to be taken out.
When the arc ends, Rem never did any of that stuff because it wasn't necessary.
Gotta think with time travel for this series.
That would reach naofumi levels of rage.
a suspicious guy with witch stench
she only did her job sorry but life is not fair
A suspicious -illegal immigrant- with witch stench.
So Rem just stops caring about the
Witch's scent? Does she ever comment that it gets stronger when he dies and loops in Arc 3?
When does this happen
A suspicious illegal immigrant who mysteriously knows nothing about the witch with the witch stench.
She never did them.
What are you talking about. Did Ram dye her hair blue or some shit? Or are you just in denail?
And is obsessed with Emilia,
who the Witch Cult refers to as the Daughter of the Witch.
tf someone saves your image
I'm sorry I didn't save it larger
She does comment on it.
She believes its the cause of the sudden mood drops that Subaru experiences after he respawns, but doesn't know the specifics of it.
Jesus, out of context Subaru is a really freaky fucker, ain't he?
subaru doesn't go into a deep depression and loathe himself (at least not forever)
Well obviously not forever. But there is plenty of suffering still right?
Who is this extremely handsome and athletic Japanese man?
And if someone close to clowndick dies, he'll hunt subaru. Remember that he's sticking with him because he thinks he has more control over subaru's ability than he does, because he knew about it from the book he has.
Translation of WN or VN?
Yes he is. An absolute basket case.
Shut your whore mouth and use mighty putty. Billy mays commands it.
In the timeline that actually continues, she didn't do those things. That was a different Rem in a different circumstance that never happened.
looks like the LN, i would prefer the WN desu
Same. Why isn't anyone trying to translate the WN? It wouldn't even have the same licensing issues the LN does.
Time travel happened, so Subaru never died and current Rem never killed him.
Oh yes. Especially since he's now obviously familiar with the layout of the mansion and where everything is kept, even though no one told him anything. They notice this kind of shit, and it makes it look like he familiarized himself with the place beforehand. It makes it look like he knew he was going there beforehand, and that everything was planned so he could infiltrate the place.
No one really knows jack shit about Subaru's respawns, so asking what he looks like from the outside is a very important question.
So does clowndick actually have the capability to care for others?
who knows, im annoyed that every generic harem LN get translated but the good stuff not
Time travel happened
its not time travel
That's quite beside the point. The same concept still applies.
Perhaps the witch of greed (who is dead) and MAYBE ram, but not rem as he thinks she's disposable.
the thing is that if something doesn't go as planned, that would mean to him that subaru got lazy, and has more control over his own power than he does and he doesn't like being rused.
Seems like time travel to me.
you're right it's more of a magical time reversal that isn't really time travel but is more of a curse by an evil witch
Although time travel is probably easier to say.
Face the truth
Time Leap is the term when the consciousness moves into past version of body.
It was cute. It was very cute.
I would say it is more dimensional hopping since in time travel, EVERYTHING is supposed to stay the same. The proof is in stench. If it was truly a time loop, then the stench would not be changing.
His body would be fucked up if it was dimension hopping alone.
There's time shit involved, and that's all we know.
author hinted that suburu gets mana back
Why does this make me worry instead of making me excited.
You can never have true suffering without first giving hope anon.
Just imagine all his bishop powers in his full potential
But Rem also said that all of the interactions between them and Subaru were complete lies and that they never gave a shit about him. Why would Subaru go back to liking them after that?
Why was he in the witch cult but also kind and generous.
Let's not have this happen please.
It runs into the idea of a parallel time period but it is the idea that it NEEDS to stay the same if it were a time loop. And if time loops would need to account of other timelines not existing. It is dimensional hopping due to the fact his conscienceness or soul moving to parallel realities.
Almost everyone in thee with cult are like that. Even the witches are like that. Except they're all insane and are not literally worse than Stalin.
million shadow hands
invincibility and heart superpositioning
Yeah, this is going to be terrific
Picture of the full cast with names (in link).
Are they parallel realities? We don't know if the alternate realities Subaru saw actually existed.
Why are they in the witch cult if they know freeing Satella is bad?
Is there no Bishop Envy essence because Subaru actually has it?
I assume it was something like a church that believed Satella to be a god. Does not have to necessarily be evil and more onto the idea of a whole villain sidekick not being evil.
Does Elsa ever come back and do we know who she was working for?
Once Subaru gets his mana back this fucker can literally stop time. This is gonna be bad.
Cult worships Satella, not necessarily wants to free her straight away.
SOMETHING happened to make them start moving to try and free her.
I thought he could only freeze his body's time? i mean at the cost of stopping his own heart but that also has a workaround too
Because most of them are like puppets, they're mostly driven by instinct rather than rational thought now.
Reinhard's grandad kills her.
Clowndick hired her.
REMEMBER, EVERYTHING BAD THAT DIRECTLY INVOLVES SUBARU IS CLOWNDICK'S FAULT.
Remember that he only did it to get to subaru and "control him"
because he still a "stranger" also did you even watched the ep the Sisters were kind and comforting him while he had nightmares even though he smells of witches
he could only freeze his body's time
That's what I meant, he's going to be a immovable fortress.
Authority of Greed:
The user can stop the time of themselves or anything they're wearing, touched, or even their breath. This stops any interference from outside and only allows the user's interference outwards. This negates any attack against the user, and if the user waves their hand anything in its trajectory is cut no matter the toughness. Atmosphere released from the stillness can cause shockwaves, gravel thrown around can become unblockable shots, and it can enable the user to travel at extremely high speeds. Normally, multiple uses of this ability can be deadly as the user's own heart also stops, however it can be circumvented when combined with another of the Authority of Greed's abilities.
It's so broken.
Elsa, the twins being on hyper high alert, the shaman with his weird dog, the witch cult attacking in A3? ALL Clowndick.
If Subaru is happy then it's already a great ending. Even if it's with Satella or EMT.
Why would changing dimensions cause the smell to grow stronger? He probably just brings some of the scent back with him when he respawns.
That's only if this story works so time can't be changed. Some universes make the rules more mutable.
I'm not too worried about it. Unless he gets it back in a horrible way, it's probably going to help him a lot.
If it turns out that it was his mana holding him back. Even if he gets a bit scarier, there will probably be plenty of upsides.
They actually genuinely liked him in the first loop and thought he could probably be trusted.
It's just that every loop afterward he's shown that he knows too much and must have researched the mansion prior to his arrival, making it likely that events were arranged to get him there. It's only then that he looks like an obvious Witch Cult infiltrator.
Oh fuck that is broken. Does using the powers affect him in any way? like personality wise or physically, that isnt greed
How did he know that Subaru would run into Emilia, and that he would be that motivated to get it back for her. Or did he just happen to be fucking with Emilia for his own amusement?
I know man that fucker is obsessed. though i think
He wants the bishops out of the way and have their powers concentrated in one person for easy management.
It stops his heart when he uses it and he dies.
He doesn't have Greed's heart displacing ability at all.
The book, it told him of subaru way before he was summoned. IT also mentioned about his power, although it didn't mention the specifics. He just assumes is some kind of foresight.
He has a book that can tell the future that the witch of greed have him.
He's been playing all his plans by the book since she gave it to him.
Which one is Elsa?
Not necessarily puppets as one would describe them as a character. The idea of Pandora's box in Greek mythology was that Pandora had in possession the box of madness. Envy, Pride, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, Lust, and Gluttony. They were the living embodiments of madness that is detrimental to the world that the gods created because it was intended as the world was becoming too perfect. As their purpose stands, they were created to spread madness and imperfection. The villains have a reason in this series as their purpose for having such essences apply. But rather, the entire cult is using such a way on the basis of chaos to the world.
Wait he doesnt? he only gets the heartstopping ability?
Madame Von Organ masturbation.
The bad guy for the first arc.
It was that specific about his first day, but not about his powers?
Wait. That means Emilia and Subaru meeting was fated and definitely no coincidence or accident. That really cements her link to Satella doesn't it.
Wanna know what else was in Pandora's box, anon?
And Subaru could very well be an apostle of hope if you need to force him as an apostle into the ground.
He gets the time stop shit too, but he has NO way to counteract his heart stopping like the apostle of greed did.
Its because most of the aspects of greed are with his other ability, which is his heart displacement. The guy he had to kill to get the Authority had 78+ wives. But I'm guessing its a Greed of acceptance or love. Because Echidna was greedy for knowledge therefor had powers pertaining to that.
No shit it's fucking fate bro.
No i mean, does he only get the invincibility shit (that would otherwise kill him) and not als the ability that lets him bypass the heart stopping shit? the one that lets him superimpose his heart to avoid dying?
I mean, he can use it in intervals. Just because your heart stopped for half a second doesn't mean that he's dead.
He only has the ZA WARUDO effects.
Subaru with the Greed Apostle's power cannot superimpose his heart.
All his apostle powers are fucking shitty ass versions that only have watered down halves of their original power.
If he didn't, he'd be fucking unstoppable, and this isn't a battle series by any stretch of the term.
I know about that. was just surprised he gets one ability but not the other.
author hinted that suburu gets mana back
Yes because that fits the character with a whopping two kill count perfectly you shitter.
Why don't you go suck Bombadil's dick some more in his magical pedo forest holy fuck.
Well maybe the second ability manifests itself into something else once he forms is own "greed".
Are they just watered down due to being weak in magic?
What does he have now? Sloth, Envy, Greed? Does Vainglory have the pride essence in a bottle or something?
Not him but technically it's three, and is going to pile up rather quickly.
Ah, so he can develop other abilities once he displays enough of a sin in some way or form huh
Could be, but then again it's just my assumption so.
At least we established that the entire cult is not insane and evil for nothing like some anons were complaining about. They were complaining about them being evil just because. They all have a purpose. It is not meant to be consideredone dimensional.
It'll go up to six soon, but he isn't going to be a mass murdering witch king, that goes against Subaru's personality entirely.
Plus even if he did go evil for even a moment you can bet your ass Reinhardt will slaughter him over and over and over again until he gets his shit sorted.
No matter how much stress you put Subaru through, he cannot beat Reinhardt. Or Clowndick for that matter.
Reminder that AU pretty much confirmed Rem won't have a happy end
Pandora is a mystery, she appears to control reality itself. Fucking broken.
You don't know that. He just might break. Not to mention you actually never know if Subaru can't beat them in a fight unless they actually fight or is stated otherwise.
She won't have a solo happy ending, at least.
If Satella really is manipulating him, if Rem dies and he can't loop back and save her, he's just not gonna get anything done, because he just won't stop trying.
Subaru isn't some edgelord, after all. He's a scared, confused kid who just wants love in his life.
So, less "SOON" and more "maybe someday after a lot more shit happens"?
Honestly, it's not the kind of development that should be rushed, and I really don't want everything to go full edge anytime soon. I like it more 50/50.
Is that vainglory? She'll get pissed on by satella or doped out subaru after he gets all 7.
Which essences does he have othr than envy? Does he get any in the third arc?
Sloth in arc 3.
Greed in arc 5.
mfw it works and subaru ends up working for him
I can't believe Subaru doesn't spend a few dozen loops trying to remove queerclown. All his problems would be solved if he could get rid of Roswaal.
Reinhardt literally cannot lose.
If you kill him he can just get back up.
If you make him bleed he gets stronger.
If you manage to find a weakness in his powers, he can just make new powers.
He's the ultimate example of talent versus effort.
He only has Sloth and Greed, a slight bit of lust but I think Capella is still alive.
How can he have a slight bit of an essence? Can he use a power?
Is his death restart technically not the envy essence power.
Subaru won't go edge mode unless he's mind controlled.
He just doesn't have it in him to kill innocent people.
Satella has a magic macguffin that takes all his powers.
There is a way, Reinhardt has no influence over the people who give him blessings, you cut off control from the blessings, you lose the talent. Kinda almost impossible to do though.
Satella can't get to Reinhardt, anon.
She's behind all those barriers.
Previous sword saint didn't have god sucking her dick and granting her a bajillion new powers on an instant she might lose, either.
Foxy Grandpa also knows his shit about witch cult stuff, and is doing his best to steer Subaru in the right direction.
When he and Crusche were fighting Capella, she couldn't affect Subaru but affected Crusche. Subaru kinda had to "absorb" that poison thus almost having somewhat of an essence over it.
I want Reinhardt to get wrecked by someone.
Seriously, that guy is such a fucking Gary Stu it's not even funny.
His grandma was the same way as him and she still got beaten. It's not impossible.
She got beaten because her powers were literally transferred to Reinhardt during the middle of her fight.
I mean when she fought her future husband and he beat her. Reinhardt was several decades away from existing then.
Well then, just get him to knock up Felt!
No, Wilhelm defeated her when she even had her powers. Hard work as the sword demon. Hakugei killed her years later right when she lost the blessings of a sword saint.
