With Re: Zero Season 2 finally been announced, we can finally continue on the story of Subaru and dwell in his despair once more. I read something online that made me laugh, someone said that Subaru is playing the Isekai game on the highest difficulty. This is so accurate, it’s not even funny.
Here’s the synopsis of Re:Zero for those that aren’t familiar with the anime:
Suddenly, high school student Subaru Natsuki has been summoned to another world on the way back from the convenience store. With the biggest crisis of his life being summoned to another world, and with no sign of the one who summoned him, things become even worse when he is attacked.
But when he is saved by a mysterious, silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru attempts to return the favor by helping her track down something that was stolen from her. When they finally manage to get a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and killed by someone. Subaru then awakens in the place he was summoned and notices he gained the ability “Returns by Death” and has become a helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time to a certain point by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death?
I’m guessing by the amount of death shown in that teaser trailer, Subaru is finally going to be confronting Emilia’s mother and finally learn more about why he has the ability “Returns by Death”. I really hope the suspense in this season is just as satisfying as it was in season 1.
Oh, and in case I forget there’s also a OVA in the works, detailing the backstory of Emilia and how she came to be. Worth checking out as well.
