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.

Truly a masterpiece, Re:Zero's unique concept made me hooked to watch all of the seasons, due to the time skip, anything could happen. This is the first anime where I have lots of commitment and dedication to the character. The biggest attachment for me, is through its story, since the MC can die (and respawn) at any point, he has to learn from his mistakes, showing us how valuable life is to us, making each timeline feel unique and special. Re:Zero is one of those shows that are 100% unpredictable for each episode, you can never know what happens, that is what makes Re:Zero so ...

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 ...
