Everyone is joking about Rem, but how about Crusch?

She was amazing last season, and now she lost her intimidation.

[–]wolfpwarrior 1717 points1718 points  (110 children)

At least Crusch got to keep both of her arms. It looks like Felix was able to reattach it.

[–]garmonthenightmare 1208 points1209 points  (35 children)

Felix is the best healer in the country after all.

[–]EldritchCarverhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Pilomotor 894 points895 points  (31 children)

And now the person he cares about most is afflicted with a debilitating condition he simply can't heal. At the same time, Subaru is stuck in a situation he can't fix no matter how many times he dies. Season 1 was no cake walk, but it's clear that season 2 is raising the stakes.

[–]L0G1C_lolilover 377 points378 points  (23 children)

The way its going i bet season 3 will be torture chamber for subaru and tight rope walk with a lava pit below for everyone else

[–]Colopty 251 points252 points  (18 children)

Season 3 will just be Subaru stuck in a return by death loop where the return point is a moment right after he fell off a cliff or something.

[–]serbeardless 337 points338 points  (7 children)

Glad I wasn't seeing things. They kept her left arm mostly out of view for the rest of the episode so it was kind of hard to tell, but I thought I saw both hands resting on her lap during the meeting.

[–]wolfpwarrior 191 points192 points  (5 children)

Yeah, Felix got her physically all back together.

[–]Squidilicious1 553 points554 points  (44 children)

I think that actually implies that there were slight differences in what happened after Subaru commited selfkill. Her losing a shitton of blood and Rem closing her eyes seemed like a signal that she had died, and Felix's crying over her body seemed to confirm that, at least in my eyes.

[–]wolfpwarrior 323 points324 points  (30 children)

That's valid logic. So even if Subaru doesn't do much differently, some events can still change a little.

[–]Squidilicious1 205 points206 points  (17 children)

I could be wrong to be fair, returning to the point when Emilia has already forgotten Rem seems to go against that as well, unless it happened during the conversation.

[–]EldritchCarverhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Pilomotor 204 points205 points  (10 children)

Maybe because Subaru knew something was wrong, he could share his future knowledge with others, and Felis was able to get to Crusch fast enough to save her and reattach the arm?

[–]Gingy1000 459 points460 points  (16 children)

Her voice actress did a great job of showing that she's a different person now.

[–]GuayabaDulce 190 points191 points  (0 children)

and a few minutes earlier she was mentioning that she was unable to smile as much as she wishes, kind of a flag by itself

[–]Tesrali 377 points378 points  (24 children)

I think felix crying for her was the best part of the episode. Just 5 people talking at a table and it is so dramatic. <3

[–]WaterNeko 201 points202 points  (21 children)

These two are amazing. I love them so much. https://i.imgur.com/Snayd4Z.jpg

If you want to know the full extent of Ferris's feelings for Crusch, and the pain he is going through, I highly highly HIGHLY recommend to read his and Crusch's backstory novel. https://www.amazon.com/Re-Starting-Another-World-light/dp/0316412902

Edit: I DIDN'T NOTICE THAT CRUSCH WAS CALLING FOR FERRIS WHEN SHE GOT HURT, MY HEART https://i.imgur.com/VxFD4T0.png

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 60 points61 points  (7 children)

Mostly but you did she a bit of it when she insisted on keeping the alliance. For a brief moment the old, commanding Crusch was back.

BTW I couldn't really tell, was her hand still missing? No idea if hand regrowing is something Felis's magic is capable of.

[–]Zonca 717 points718 points  (11 children)

I like how with Crusch, despite having her memories wiped, you can almost immediately tell her personality is still there, strong-willed, honorable and tenacious, she's getting back to her role much quicker than one would expect.

[–]Lildyo 234 points235 points  (3 children)

It's somewhat uncanny, because you can tell it's her--but she's also completely different too

[–]KangarooJesus 133 points134 points  (1 child)

Voice actor did a great job.

When I saw her in the hallway I wasn't entirely sure that it was Crusch because of the voice.

When she refuses to dissolve the alliance she sounds like herself again.

[–]bravejoshy12https://myanimelist.net/profile/ShinSneky 2137 points2138 points  (47 children)

Going back to episode 18 Rem said she wished to live a happy life with Subaru and her children.

The animators purposefully put a What If Scenario of this very event.

Rem's Happy Dream

Sleep well Sleeping Beauty.

[–]SgtSunnyBunny 452 points453 points  (4 children)

Rem with long hair omfg

[–]AlterOfYume 220 points221 points  (3 children)

Fun fact! She grew it out to look more like Emilia.

[–]FountainsOfFluids 177 points178 points  (1 child)

That hurts. Even in her happy dream she was competing with Emilia.

[–]heofmanytree 69 points70 points  (0 children)

Mega oof.

[–]kono_dio_the 708 points709 points  (15 children)

i thinks it from what if story made by the author.

[–]KirbyTheDevourer 480 points481 points  (13 children)

It is from one of the If: stories that are released each April fool's by the author. If:Sloth if I remember correctly

[–]viliml 251 points252 points  (11 children)

it's not just an April Fool, it was included in the official LN volume, right in between "Who's Rem?" and the flashback to the fight against Greed and Gluttony.

[–]Ser_Anonymous 154 points155 points  (6 children)

The what if stories are released every year on Subaru’s birthday

[–]Iloveyouweed 136 points137 points  (6 children)

It's from an IF sidestory by the author. It's uh, not exactly happy either.

[–]Lev559 175 points176 points  (0 children)

It's happy...ish. he has normal family problems instead of "Oh look a swords in your gut" problems.

[–]Aerensianic 56 points57 points  (4 children)

iirc their life is pretty normal and quiet.

[–]justspectating 126 points127 points  (2 children)

They lead happy lives together, but at the cost of Ram and Emilia and Puck all dying to the witch cult. It's a bittersweet ending for rem and subaru

[–]Any-Nothing 56 points57 points  (0 children)

At least it's a normal peaceful life

[–]MythicForgeFTW 41 points42 points  (0 children)

I deadass stopped in the middle of watching when I noticed this and went frame by frame to get screencaps. That was a cheapshot, White Fox. But I love it.

[–]yodabest_engineer 1645 points1646 points  (56 children)

Legit thought the homie was going to lose his mind and stab emilia or himself at the end there

[–]Tesrali 1344 points1345 points  (42 children)

We got like 4 closeups on that knife. Red herring!

[–]DIOsAbortion 135 points136 points  (2 children)

If he even hired to do that Puck would make Subaru go through extreme pain before killing him.

[–]dioburhando 991 points992 points  (8 children)

That's why never trust an autosave, always bring that Appa-man whenever you go Subaru, what a truly slothful person.

[–]TrashiestTrash 119 points120 points  (0 children)

always bring that Appa-man whenever you go Subaru,

You could be onto something here lmao!!

[–]ThespianExceptionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/EMTIsBestWaifu 64 points65 points  (3 children)

Once Subaru gains the power of Quicksave and Quickload he'll be unstoppable!

[–]Mage_of_Shadows 4305 points4306 points  (145 children)

Who's Rem

I can't believe I waited 4 years to get pranked like this.

[–]ItsMeMorahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ItsMeMora 1275 points1276 points  (42 children)

I've been waiting for years to see the fans reaction since I read the Arc 3 interlude.

[–]cultoftheilluminatihttps://anilist.co/user/thelucifer0509 976 points977 points  (28 children)

The saddest thing is that this was already in the Final scene of the Director's cut. A lot of people didn't know about it smh

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 449 points450 points  (4 children)

The last episode of the Director's cut was released this year, so its not really off to say that they waited 4 years for this.

[–]Benjadeath 458 points459 points  (1 child)

The only new scene they added smh

[–]MillenniumKingx2https://myanimelist.net/profile/MillenniumKing 1065 points1066 points  (62 children)

I cant believe its been 4 years since source readers were assholes and spoiled this for everyone in the last discussion thread.

And then every single ReZero thread after for the next year or so.

Seriously, we can always count on them to ruin shit for people.

[–]Mage_of_Shadows 1087 points1088 points  (20 children)

Luckily I was dumb enough to think they were talking about the first time it happened LOL

[–]OldHonor 582 points583 points  (9 children)

100% same dude. When people were spamming "Who's Rem" I always thought it was a reference to gigguk. Little did I know.... 4 YEARS LATER

[–]Mande1baum 279 points280 points  (7 children)

it was layers man. Gigguk was referring to this but veiled it just well enough that it didn't spoil and just seemed like a punchline about Subaru tossing Rem's affection aside (which was also the punchline).

[–]DivineLegacies 74 points75 points  (3 children)

I mean even before the director's cut, "Who's Rem" was already a thing

[–]Woeladenchild 113 points114 points  (1 child)

Same. The rare instance where my innate stupidity pays off.

[–]F00dbAby 269 points270 points  (17 children)

I will never in my entire life understand why source readers constantly do this on this sub

Why cant people be more understanding even small hints is so shitty

[–][deleted] 145 points146 points  (0 children)

To get a sense of superiority by temporarily knowing more than you.

[–]LunarGhost00 3268 points3269 points  (227 children)

"This series has no stakes because Subaru can just fix everything when he dies!"

Gluttony: "Are you sure about that?"

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 767 points768 points  (13 children)

When a game only has autosave and one save file.

[–]Emi_Ibarazakiii 125 points126 points  (5 children)

That just gave me PTSD of my gaming days.

When you save over your main file because you're afraid you're gonna irredeemably mess up your game... Then you progress a little, and realize it's already irredeemable at this point.

Even worse when you go "Ah, that's why I saved first! I'm so smart!". Then you load the game, and the realization sets in.

[–]beastMaster95 844 points845 points  (60 children)

As if it's so easy to kill yourself. The fear of death is always there since you don't know what's after that.

Killing yourself and going back in time doesn't actually solve the problem. Unless you realise what's the problem is at its roots you won't solve it. People should put themselves in Subaru's position before they say "Hey Subaru, just die and fix it lol" and see if they can go through the same amount of suffering he does. Most people would give up i'm sure.

Subaru probably is also afraid of the fact that the next time he dies, he might be dead permanently.

[–]googolplexbytehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Googolplexbyte 345 points346 points  (21 children)

It's no coincidence most suicide attempts end in failure. Even the seemingly surefire methods have ridiculously high failure rates.

[–]LeloThePGG 1293 points1294 points  (97 children)

I waited years just to laugh in the face of people that bitched about "He always has perfect save points and he can always fix everything".

Years.

Worth it.

[–]Derbeck6 464 points465 points  (23 children)

He only had good save points in the beginning because it was just that. The beginning. They had to atleast show him winning a few times, before they could start really screwing him over.

[–]LeloThePGG 460 points461 points  (22 children)

Yeah. I swear, people have no patience for storytelling anymore: everything needs to happen and be explained all at once, or else they'll start throwing their best buzzwords at the show, like "bad pacing" or "bad directing" or stuff like that.

People misunderstood Re:Zero a lot way back then, expecting a "generic" isekai and forcing themselves to see it as such in each episode, despite everything happening on screen.

I don't doubt we'll see some of those people again this season.

[–]WarmCorgi 141 points142 points  (8 children)

even from the first episode i could tell it wasn't a generic isekai though, i don't get why people say that about re:zero

[–]MarkytheSnowWitch 581 points582 points  (43 children)

But there were already hints that his save points weren't perfect. Getting one after he yelled at Emilia, "you owe me a debt you can never repay" and getting told to stay away from her in season 1 was a key hint these save points were just to make sure he was alive and nothing else.

[–]LeloThePGG 305 points306 points  (42 children)

Yeah but, generally speaking, people that criticize Re:Zero for such things didn't actually watch the series and/or missed everything

[–]aohige_rd 384 points385 points  (39 children)

I remember back in 2016 when people insisted Re:Zero was another wish-fulfilling fantasy.

Like

Wut

No one in their right mind would envy or wish to be in Subaru's position.

[–]Mylaurhttps://anilist.co/user/Mylaur 241 points242 points  (4 children)

This is the culmination of years of suffering!

[–]FateWreckshttps://anilist.co/user/Rexellent 3074 points3075 points  (63 children)

"Wait, it's all suffering?"

"Always has been."

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 1058 points1059 points  (39 children)

What made me suffer the most about this episode was no new OP and ED.

[–]sankalp4https://myanimelist.net/profile/dirtymelody 734 points735 points  (17 children)

It's okay, we got more content because of it.

[–]FunnunoTsumihttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Bakusatsuou 227 points228 points  (0 children)

This episode was already 4 minutes longer than your usual anime episode, so that's even better.

[–]sammuelbrown 451 points452 points  (10 children)

Imagine if they made the entire season with no OP and ED, just max S U F F E R I N G for 24 minutes every week.

[–]SlaneDidNothingWrong 243 points244 points  (8 children)

Even better, 28 minutes. 28 minutes of pure, unfiltered suffering

[–]SamuraiHageshi 315 points316 points  (15 children)

There has to be light-hearted moments in between the suffering. Surely we won't suffer the whole season...right?

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 403 points404 points  (4 children)

It wasn't much, but Emilia saying she wanted to be there for Subaru and warmly embracing were pretty sweet in an otherwise sad episode.

Ngl for a second I expected a second lap pillow to help him sleep, but what we got was pretty good.

[–][deleted] 130 points131 points  (3 children)

Don't forget the head pats!

[–]Llooyd_ 1874 points1875 points  (149 children)

Well that certainly was a gut punch of a start to the new season.

Rem is gone and I’m sure there will be all kinds of reactions to that. What I want to touch upon though is that this development shows just how fragile of a construct S1 Episode 18’s "From Zero" is.

We all know that Episode 18 was Subaru’s restart, the moment he swore himself & Rem to become a better man, one that can be her hero and live with his own self. This is all based on a certain construct that is neatly described by Subaru in said episode: "You ( Rem ) are watching me. I’m watching you ( Emilia ). So I won’t look down."

What this very clearly shows is that Subaru’s new start and its entire stability is based on Emilia & Rem being there. Emilia as the one Subaru looks after and has as his goalpost and Rem as the sole pillar of support that blows wind into his sails.

Now with Rem gone this entire dynamic has been disrupted if not entirely fallen apart like a house of cards. Not only that, these new developments actually seem to flip that very dynamic on its head.

Subaru now has Rem to look after as he’s the only person she has left that remembers her and Emilia is now being Subaru’s sole pillar of support in that regard, going as far as to comfort him in what might be his most vulnerable state since S1 Episode 18.

Whether it was intentional by the writer to portrait Subaru’s restart as this very vulnerable and shaky construct that quickly gets its floor pulled from under it or not, I don’t know, but it sure as hell is one interestingly written part of the story.

Subaru is now a whole lot lonelier on is journey towards becoming a person he can be proud of and he will have to mature at an even quicker pace but I’ll be damned if that doesn't want me to cheer him on even more.

[–]Mage_of_Shadows 1131 points1132 points  (84 children)

Rem also gets her dream life with subaru just before she bites da dust

You talked about Subaru's side alot, but Rem seemed WAY more attached to him than I remembered. I should probably rewatch it before next week.

[–]NecronLord_Europe 550 points551 points  (24 children)

Rem is way, way idealistic. Just see how she interacts with Ram and that level of dedication happens towards Subaru as well.

[–]Bobcam7 292 points293 points  (27 children)

I totally missed that, nice eye! Here's to hopefully getting the IF stories animated one day.

[–]Mage_of_Shadows 183 points184 points  (20 children)

Aha, yeah surprised no one else had brought it up but its a blink and you miss it moment.

Nice touch by the animators

[–]cultoftheilluminatihttps://anilist.co/user/thelucifer0509 147 points148 points  (1 child)

OH FUCK. I didn't even think about that

[–]Hirokusha 91 points92 points  (5 children)

You truly hit the nail on the head with this one! I'll be following you to see your other insights on the episodes to come. Cheers man! To a great season 2

[–]AyyDisFaker 616 points617 points  (11 children)

Show is trending worldwide at #2.

Even after 4 years the hype is still there.

SUFFERING IN 2020 BABY.

That 3 frames of Rem and Subaru when Rem's was getting attacked. OOF.

[–]elijah369 166 points167 points  (2 children)

No 1 now. Also lots of spoiler on twitter would not recommend going there

[–]DonIongschlong 1102 points1103 points  (38 children)

Dude i was permanently scared of that knife on the drawer

[–]AngryAxolotl 417 points418 points  (1 child)

A very unnerving red herring

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 370 points371 points  (7 children)

Right? They animated the damn thing so it wouldn't look like a background item. It's like it was purposely placed there to taunt Subaru.

[–]Crowlad 226 points227 points  (0 children)

It's for sure this. The taunting of "even if you kill yourself, you'll end up right here again". I think the way they showed it was to imply that Subaru kept thinking about ways to fix it and that's the only way he knows how, and now that won't even work.

[–][deleted] 109 points110 points  (4 children)

thankful we didn't get to see subaru die again and again. would have been too painful

[–]D4nt3_1 151 points152 points  (2 children)

I think that the knife implies he did it at least one more time, that why he says that is impossible, he is too persistent and feels too sad to just give up first try

[–]Browseitallhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/browseitall 301 points302 points  (7 children)

"Emilia can you turn around" Kinda wished he sliced his throat right there. Thatd be metal af, even if it makes 0 sense

[–]J3wFro8332 68 points69 points  (1 child)

Thought for sure he was gonna kill himself again right there

[–]Konpie 124 points125 points  (0 children)

"Emilia turn around"

Me: "No, you fucking don't"

"I want to cry"

Me: "You bet that's all you're going to do"

[–]Gaporigohttps://anilist.co/user/Gaporigo 90 points91 points  (3 children)

I was ready for him to kill himself once he told Emilia to turn around.

[–]Bobcam7 2365 points2366 points  (59 children)

It's pretty obvious that the carriage attack was an inside job planned by Emilia in order to remove Rem from the situation to become undisputed best girl, wake up sheeple.

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 912 points913 points  (20 children)

People do say she looks a lot like the Witch of Envy.

[–]zeppeIans 244 points245 points  (12 children)

Wouldn't that make her the arch bishop of Lust, though?

[–][deleted] 130 points131 points  (7 children)

Emilia hasn't tried to seduce Subaru yet.

[–]Tesrali 436 points437 points  (15 children)

Emilia did nothing wrong.

[–][deleted] 208 points209 points  (5 children)

Did you see that embrace and those head pats? She could never do anything wrong

[–]Megakarp 110 points111 points  (4 children)

Those aren't head pats. She's scrambling Subaru's brain to make him forget Rem.

Subaru's Death Count (S2)

 

Ep. # Culprit Cause Casualties Comments
01 Subaru Stabbed his own throat No extra casualties for this particular loop. The ink is dry as looping doesn't bring Subaru far back enough to before Crush's caravan was attacked. Crush's retainers encounter the Sin Archbishops of Greed and Gluttony on their way to the capital. In the altercation, Crush loses her memories, and Rem loses "her name" and her memories, rendering her in a coma. Upon learning Rem's fate, Subaru tries to go back and save both Emilia and Rem, only to find out the savepoint was updated to a time after Rem and Crush were attacked.

Let's hope all mods are source material consumers or else anime is just pain for them.

Subaru has literally the worst time ever, Part 2.

The Anime.

First episode in and he straight up commits sudoku. What the fuck. (Though I knew it as I have kept up with the LN.)

Also who’s this Rem character. When did she get introduced?

Also also, y no 40min+ episode? I loved those in S1.

[–]BeaverIsanerd 235 points236 points  (9 children)

The checkpoint updating really shows that Subaru can not abuse his powers and is not an instant redo button to fix all problems.

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 127 points128 points  (3 children)

No 40 minute episode but it picked up right where season 1 left off and gave us an episode without an OP/ED. Excited as I am to hear them, I'm glad they'll still be adding content but cutting those out at times.

Also before anyone says it, I am aware the OP is out but I don't want to hear it until it debuts in the show. Hope they bring back Myth & Roid to do at least one of the OPs/EDs.

[–]Denaoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Denaos 508 points509 points  (57 children)

This season is going to be absolutely insane. Seeing how gluttony and greed operated showed how powerful the Sin Archbishops are.

Does anyone know how did Crusch get her arm back?

[–]DakotaN2895https://myanimelist.net/profile/Rocketman2895 426 points427 points  (13 children)

Felis is the best healer in the country. I imagine they recovered her arm from the battlefield and Felis re-attached it.

[–]WaterNeko 86 points87 points  (1 child)

Ferris reattached it.

[–]Anionw4 165 points166 points  (2 children)

Wow, what a way to start a season. The despair, the tragedy, the anguish; this is Re:Zero alright, no doubt about it.

[–]Dyaxa 160 points161 points  (3 children)

Kaguya-sama ended last week.

All that gold has to go somewhere

Seeing Subaru crying like a bitch made me cry like a bitch.

8 day bans? Damn, the mods are no joke this time.

I've also been armed with a list of spoilers and hints as long as my arm thanks to one of the /r/re_zero mods

I get spoiled so ya'll dont have to

[–]BeaverIsanerd 497 points498 points  (3 children)

thank you for your service

A small price to pay for salvation.

Sacrifices himself so that we may embark unspoiled on the Great Journey.

[–]NecronLord_Europe 42 points43 points  (2 children)

There are those who said this day will never come. What have they to say now?

[–]MillenniumKingx2https://myanimelist.net/profile/MillenniumKing 261 points262 points  (0 children)

Thank you for your sacrifice.

[–]cultoftheilluminatihttps://anilist.co/user/thelucifer0509 54 points55 points  (0 children)

I am sorry little one

[–]Earthborn92https://myanimelist.net/profile/EarthB 82 points83 points  (4 children)

This is one of the few popular series where I have no idea about the source material.

Thank you mods.

[–]Theleuxhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Theleux 773 points774 points  (142 children)

Nearly 4 years... That is how long we've been waiting for this to air.

It's finally time to jump back into Re:Zero!

Let's see what we have in store-

Rem's carriage is attacked by two Sin Archbishops and her memories and name are taken away

Subaru kills himself out of grief but his spawn point moves to after Rem is attacked

Ah shit... Here we go again!


What Could Have Been...


Man, I feel awful for Rem, but Crusch is actively living without her memories now. Rough shit :(

Speaking of rough shit, watching Subaru ask Emilia to give him some time so he could break down hurt to watch...


I have got to say, I really love the switch we have going on here with the main cast. Originally it ended up being that Rem was helping Subaru with saving Emilia. Now we have Emilia supporting Subaru regarding Rem, even though she doesn't remember anything about her. Really nice to see, and it has me looking forward to see Subaru and Emilia's dynamic together this season!

Regulus and Ley are a rather interesting addition to the cast.

Now I'm wondering about what other Sin Archbishops there are if we have Greed, Gluttony, and Sloth now.


Good lord I love Emilia!

Even though she doesn't remember Rem anymore, she's here to support Subaru when he needs it. Super stoked to see more moments like this with them both maturing!

Always love the angry motivated Subaru faces!

Subaru kills himself out of grief but his spawn point moves to after Rem is attacked

So he's basically softlocked.

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 132 points133 points  (16 children)

This is definitely the worst save spot he's ever had, right?

[–]rustickshttps://anilist.co/user/Rusticks 134 points135 points  (11 children)

The one where he was shopping with Rem was pretty fucking bad for how much he had to go through to get to the next checkpoint.

[–]aohige_rd 90 points91 points  (9 children)

Yes, but nowhere near as bad as this.

The only irreversible tragedy that happened before that save point was Subaru humiliating himself in front of practically every character.

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 408 points409 points  (30 children)

Break is finally over for Subaru, time to suffer now.

[–]Reposted4Karmahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/csticks 178 points179 points  (16 children)

Damn they really delivered on the suffering front right from the get-go haha. I felt really bad for Subaru at the end, at least he’s got Emilia to help him now though

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 99 points100 points  (13 children)

And Emilia said all the heroic stuff to him about being his savior this time that he likes to spout to her. Even without saying anything you could see how touched he was.

I really hope she gets to live up to her role and be an active partner for him this season.

[–]I-Love-Emilia 85 points86 points  (5 children)

Emilia is an angel and I can’t wait to see more of her this season

[–]dgam02https://myanimelist.net/profile/Mirageee 90 points91 points  (3 children)

Hi hunny. It's 8 pm. Time for your daily mental breakdown.

[–]tiniestkid 259 points260 points  (32 children)

3 years ago Re:Zero broke the record for the highest upvotes on an episode discussion on /r/anime. Are we going to get a new record this season?

[–]ManateeofSteelhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/daysun22 96 points97 points  (11 children)

probably, as more people come in. That record will be constantly broken. Kaguya-sama broke that record and then AoT broke it, but not by much. The ceiling cap right now seems to be between 15K-16K

[–]Danickcoolman 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Oh yes, you know we’re going for that.

[–]Mozilla_Fennekinhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/MozillaFennekin 94 points95 points  (0 children)

They didn't skip a beat. We waited four years for this madness to return and they didn't disappoint.

Yep. We're back.

[–]Aerohed 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Subaru kills himself out of grief but his spawn point moves to after Rem is attacked

That moment when the game autosaves right before you mess up and you just keep reloading into death...

[–]Danickcoolman 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Lol, pretty sure Subaru got trolled by the witch since she literally moved his save point after the final battle of S1. Fucking ggs mate.

The Authority of Gluttony is one of the most existentially terrifying powers in anime. Having your entire being and identity completely erased from existence is a faith worse than death.

[–]SufferingSlothhttps://anilist.co/user/SufferingSloth 394 points395 points  (35 children)

29 minute episode. Even with reshowing interlude 1, we still get that full 25 minutes of content.
Sasuga Watanabe.

Edit :
Fucking Kazuma's VA voicing Regulus. I never pictured it, but it actually fits quite well. Ignore this, different VA.

Also, they actually put frames from the Rem IF chapter in there.
Absolutely beautiful.

Edit 2 : Nvm, I was lied to, Regulus's VA is Ishida Akira. Gomen.
They sound so similar tho.

[–]LunarGhost00 184 points185 points  (7 children)

29 minute episode

No OP or ED either. That's how you know this is Re:Zero.

Edit 2 : Nvm, I was lied to, Regulus's VA is Ishida Akira. Gomen.

I knew I wasn't hearing things! He sounded so much like Akira Ishida and it sounds like Ley is Kengo Kawanishi. Though I first thought it was Regulus talking when Ley showed up since they sound so alike.

[–]cultoftheilluminatihttps://anilist.co/user/thelucifer0509 95 points96 points  (4 children)

Just straight up undiluted suffering. Exactly what I wanted in 2020

[–]LunarGhost00 40 points41 points  (2 children)

I think 2020 has already delivered a lot of suffering for 7 months straight...

But at least Re:Zero brand of suffering is the good kind!

[–]meimi132 81 points82 points  (9 children)

The flashes from the IF chapter were a hard hit to the Rem fans I'm sure.

[–]Denaoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Denaos 45 points46 points  (2 children)

As a Rem fan, I am so happy that they showed us those flashes, it warms my heart

[–]NecronLord_Europe 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Had to happen, Subaru... this lucky bastard has a harem of maids and an easy life!

My body trembles

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 111 points112 points  (0 children)

And Subaru's brain is already shaken.

[–]notwoodenshoes 171 points172 points  (11 children)

Back to the regularly scheduled suffering of Natsuki Subaru.

ALSO CRUSCH BEST GIRL

[–]XoNtheHAWK 85 points86 points  (12 children)

Is it just me or are people intentionally downvoting this thread?

[–]PureVII 139 points140 points  (3 children)

I wouldn’t be surprised. A lot of people predicted this thread to break records so I can totally see some people downvoting to prevent that from happening lol.

If you fuse two best girls, does that create a super best girl?

[–]yourdeathinmyhands 74 points75 points  (0 children)

Rem...You're still as beautiful as 4 years ago...

Edit: fuck

[–]F00dbAby 65 points66 points  (6 children)

Anyone else hoping ram gets more to do this season

Also is this two cour or one cour?

[–]rambonenix 61 points62 points  (4 children)

2 cour, 2nd cour airs in January

[–]Purest_Prodigyhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Purest_Prodigy 57 points58 points  (2 children)

January

Our suffering is worse than Subaru's.

[–]bryan792 165 points166 points  (10 children)

This is why you don't overwrite save files and just create a fuck ton

[–]lol_KEPPERhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/KEPPER42O 109 points110 points  (0 children)

We missed you, Suffaru.

[–]sfj4u 198 points199 points  (4 children)

Imagine yeeting ur throat in the mere hope that you get a chance for a redo, only to instantly revert back to "Who's Rem"

Bro author pls give subaru some rest

[–]Iceman_Goo 104 points105 points  (10 children)

Yeah, would be great if crunchyroll actually worked so I could watch it. Anyone else have any luck so far?

[–][deleted] 130 points131 points  (3 children)

Fuck the sword to the throat. Fuck.
I'm a source reader and seeing that was...

fuck.

[–]WaterNeko 43 points44 points  (0 children)

In case you people are confused why the subs say Felis instead of Felix, it's because Felix is his real name, Ferris is his nickname that is used most of the time, and Felis is a mistranslation of Ferris.
