It was announced at the Summer School Festival MF Bunko 2015 event that a TV anime adaptation of fantasy light novel Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: Life in a different world from zero) has been green-lit.

The series is written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Ootsuka. It has also spawned several manga adaptations.

Synopsis
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 cooperates with her to return the favor. 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 by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death? (Source: jCafe, edited)

Seriously? I was just thinking of trying the manga version and the LN getting an anime? Might as well wait for the anime.

The announcement comes to no surprise as the domain name "re-zero-anime.jp" has been registered by Kadokawa some time ago, but I'm really glad to finally see some official confirmation.

Announcement visual:


On another note, I'm really hoping summoned/reincarnation fantasy light novel series receiving anime adaptions do not become mainstream, the English-speaking fandom currently is pretty tame and friendly and I don't want that tainted by anime-only viewers (like how it happened with the VRMMO genre). Nonetheless, if it promotes sales of the original source, I can grin and bear the negativities. A lot of series do need that boost.

In the meantime, perhaps I should resume translating the Re:Zero novel again...

The synopsis does indeed sound interesting.Any LN-readers here who can confirm if it's good or just wasted potential?

It's going to be 1 cour.

Anyways, the festival is still ongoing. I don't expect any other anime adaptations to be announced tonight but maybe more info on another already confirmed/existing series to be revealed...

Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

Now take a look at Berserk (2016).

It's good and hopefully the anime will keep Subaru's monologues as a good portion of the novel does have him strategize in saving X, getting out of loops, etc. It gets pretty gruesome later on too when

OT : I won't try the anime, It still sounds like your average LN with little twist in the end, you know like Edge of tomorrow.

Lol, this will be LN version of Akame ga Kill, but with more edgy death characters with no depth.

Calling it now, there will be a comedic scene where a girl gets angry at the MC and kills him, but it's totally alright because time reversal.

Figured this would get an anime eventually so never started reading it.

But going based on what I've seen in the spoilers above might give the LN a try.

Because a grand amount if them are just the same empty and soulless otaku pandering crap.
I haven't read this so I don't know, but fantasy world, girls with colored hair, maybe magic... These thing have been used over and over to the point is frustrating.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no LN hater by default. Look at my favorites, Hyouka is up there and it's a LN.

Btw, "guys like you"? In what sort of stereotype are you classifying me in? Lol

Isn't it is same for all mediums, repeatating same things?At this point nothing is original, all you hope for a show actually using its potential if there is one.

I am not even a LN reader, I just find it amazing how quick people are to jump on the "pandering" bandwagon.

Don't worry, you will see those stereotypes in this thread crying with their usual "criticism"
-otaku pandering shit
-Japan shit taste
-wish fulfillment

Most will be from the same place on MAL.

Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).

Hard to tell the studio but the voice sound like Hanae Natsuki.

Another one added to my read list I guess. It's one of those low priority titles I'm putting off for later.

NOPE. There would be tears, there would be blood, and there would be so much suffering that Berserk would look like K-ON in comparison.

Unfortunately, this also means that the original author doesn't know how to write anything other than pure unadulterated suffering, so he's lonely in his pedestal among the best of his genre that you can't really determine if it's good or not after putting aside the fact that it's utterly gut-wrenching.

The announcement visual kinda scared me that the designs might be to childish/colorful, but the PV showed that it's not, so I'm definitely checking out this.
Though after reading the synopsis imo, it will either be quite good or a huge trainwreck.

So your average high schooler gets transported to a fantasy world, who receives a mysterious power to save the world and included love interest? Gee, where have I heard that before. The artstyle is basically the same as any LN adaptation.

The time travel aspect COULD make it worthwhile, if done right. I just doubt it is.

Transported into another world, saved by silver-haired beauty, blablabla. Can we get more 90s manga adaptions instead of the standard LN drivel, please?

Time travel is almost always not done right, so not exactly something to be positive about.

So basically Akame ga Kill in even worse both in terms of writing and characters? That seems like a feat, and not a good one.

Pass.

Expect the next few announcements to be mostly crap, since the MF Bunko Event is going on now, and they're an LN publisher. Don't get your hopes up for anything good to get adapted.

Oh my bad. Let me rephrase that then.

So this will be a shittier version of Steins; Gate? Or an attempt of All you need is kill?

Seriously, they should stop making time travel series about constant death, it's overrated. Virtues last reward and Steins;Gate are the only 2 things I saw that pulled it off well.

TL;DR

Use time travelling for something else, a new concept.

Edit: animation looks purty though, so I'll probably pick it up.
