When Subaru Natsuki leaves the convenience store, the last thing he expects is to be wrenched from his everyday life and dropped into a fantasy world. Things are not looking good for the bewildered teenager; however, not long after his arrival, he is attacked by some thugs. Armed with only a bag of groceries and a now useless cell phone, he is quickly beaten to a pulp. Fortunately, a mysterious beauty named Satella, in hot pursuit after the one who stole her insignia, happens upon Subaru and saves him. In order to thank the honest and kindhearted girl, Subaru offers to help in her search, and later that night, he even finds the whereabouts of that which she seeks. But unbeknownst to them, a much darker force stalks the pair from the shadows, and just minutes after locating the insignia, Subaru and Satella are brutally murdered.

However, Subaru immediately reawakens to a familiar scene—confronted by the same group of thugs, meeting Satella all over again—the enigma deepens as history inexplicably repeats itself.

This show is surprising and gets progressively better with it starting as a 6 for me but gradually becoming an 8 by the first half of season 2 with honestly the potential to be a 10/10. The character writing is shockingly crisp with a main character that genuinely feels real in how he copes with his challenges. You can tell this was a novel where the author really explored how each small aspect of this plot would affect him and others. While some might be put off from trying this show because of the Isekai aspects or REM, I would recommend seeing this anime as ...

Mixed Feelings
A story about a boy named after a car who randomly is transported to another world where magic, beast-men, and CGI background characters infest, decay and murder their surroundings. Toyota stumbles upon the power to respawn after dying. The series structures itself on this reset mechanic. Ferrari sort of plays the role of detective, trying to piece together missing pieces of the puzzle of his death so he can get out of his current predicament alive and make it to the next self-styled save point.

Opening first few episodes set up a good groundwork for the story to build off, explaining the world and the characters ...

If you read through the synapsis of Re:Zero there is one crucial information missing to set your expectations accordingly, that is: Re:Zero is a harem anime. It is the main genre and the only reason people like it, I guess. I really can’t come up with another explanation. Basically you got a pathetic main character (MC) who is surrounded by a bunch of cute female characters, all interested in him, for some reason, unbeknownst to the audience. You got a cute waifu for every taste, with almost all the hair colors and chest sizes imaginable (I say almost, but who knows what they will do ...
