----------------------------------------
Nice, the OP song is good for this show, liking it just as much as the ED song.

So Subaru apparently is more aware of his time leap skill now. Satella doesn't remember him yet so that's noticeable. Got a thrilling feeling from this episode and also glad to see Reinhard show up. I look forward to seeing more of him in this series. He and Subaru has some nice chemistry already.



Elsa's appearance really is chilling every time he comes in contact with Subaru...

Felt being a badass~

Subaru didn't take long to die again, lol. Seems like he's remembering his previous incidents. Those alleyway guys are starting to get annoying. We got a new character introduced who's helping Subaru. Subaru bumped into his murderer, lol. Subaru also met that blonde little girl again. Seems like he's either really lucky or unlucky. Lol, Subaru thought that that woman would appear again, but it was that silver-haired girl.

Another good episode. I do like its slow pace, and it is a two-cour series so they have plenty of time to develop the characters. Also, OP and ED are really good. No ED visuals yet.



4/5

Solid episode. I thought Subaru's cry for help was well done ^^

Guess with the next episode we'll be done with arc 1. Hyped for all the action to come.

At first I wasn't too fond of the OP but the visuals made it actually more ominous than lighthearted which actually fits the show again ( and I love the loop effect! ), freaking love the ED though.

They really do take their time which I'm glad for. I just hope people respect that and don't jump the gun. It's a 25 episode show so it needs its time to breath but somehow a good chunk of people expect the second coming of Jesus after the first 1 or 2 episodes. I can remember people saying Steins;Gate was jarring slow and "boring" at first but look where it is now. All in all I hope people have more patience or simply binge it once it has fully aired.

Personally I've always loved how he just randomly gets killed in a random alley by random thugs. I expected him to finally achieve his goal after 3rd time ( magical number 3 ) but the authors says nope and lets him suffer even more. The face of dying Subaru alongside the sounds he makes just gives me shivers when I think about stuff that happens later, jesus...

Now that I know how they will approach this I have more of a feeling when to expect what. And now that I think about it next episode will be fire. I expect a lot of Sakuga White Fox.

I like this show's OP & ED, and MC-kun is slowly starting to get better, and less typical annoying naive.

That aside, Reinhard is just as cool as he was in the manga, I just hope he stays as righteous and kind as he is now. I'd be sad to see if he was actually rotten inside.

Well, I like the ED more than OP.

So The Climax for this arc is next episode, hope Sakuga Animation of White Fox for the action next week.

Felt being badass again, and finally The Coolest Guy has appears. I can't wait for Reinhard shows his power next week. He is so cool.

The pacing was great, I guess when Third Arc begin they will change the song. None characters (including Best of the Best Girl) from the 3rd arc has appearing in the First OP by the way.

Of course, it's awkward. No one will know Subaru if he repeats time with dying.

Seems like it's a very faithful adaptation and Whitefox is taking the time to develop the characters. Good stuff.

Subaru already in despair, desperately trying to save everyone. Nice encounter with Satella at the end, but what was she doing there? Searching for the insignia? She will see Felt who stole it.

The encounter with Elsa was scary, damn D:

Not bad for a follow up episode

Glad to see that it didn't take Subaru too long to pick up on his time leap ability thing and I'm glad that he still decided to do the right thing in the end instead of not bothering with the situation

I liked how the inner workings of time were in play here regardless of the fact that he changed things too like for example, how somebody else helped that storekeepers daughter find her way to her mom and said person was also broke

That Reinhard guy was pretty awesome and I hope to see more or him....Maybe he'll show up and help them out in the bar if the hot evil lady comes (I'm not gonna lie, everyctime I see her lick her lips it makes me wish that I can bang her right then and there lol)

Overall it was a great episode and I was surprised to see that Not Satella found her way to the bar.....It's gonna be fun seeing how she interacts with Felt lol

That was referred to Satella. She is also "a broke kid" and still helped that little kid out even without Subaru. That's why he smiled because he was remembered once again what a nice person she is.

Poor Subaru, each time he resets everyone forgets him. That's the worse part about him dying each time. Man the tension was real when ran into the WITCH again. She's like a female Hisoka but much much worse. Reinhard seems like an interesting character, not sure what side he's on but he seems like a good guy.

Felt annoyed me a bit with how stubborn she is, but I guess it makes sense considering the environment she grew up in. Hope that Subaru finds a way to save everyone.

5/5 for the the tension alone this week. Opening song is pretty badass too.

Good to see Subaru finally pick up on the fact that he is able to time-leap, as well as already seeming to understand just how severe the implications of this power are (or so it would seem considering how panicked he was when he bumped into Elsa). Also interesting how the show is doing such a good job at mixing up events in the time leap so it's not just the same thing over and over again; hopefully the meeting with Reinhard means that the next encounter with Elsa won't lead everyone to a bloody demise again. Either way, this show sure knows how to build up the tension.

I also really like both the OP and ED, particularly how dark and ominous the OP visuals are.

Subaru seems to have already caught on to his "Return by Death" ability, so it should be interesting to see how he uses his previous experiences to change his and Satella's fates. I was pretty confident that the person at the end wasn't going to be Elsa (who's creepy as fuck, but oddly erotic lol) and I was right, now lets see if Subaru can capitalize on this situation and achieve the results he wants. Reinhard also seems like a pretty chill guy and I look forward to seeing what kind of role he plays in future episodes.

As a side note, the OP and ED are pretty good.

Nice OP, maybe season best?!
This episode definitely felt spooky, especially the starting.
Subaru realizing his "return by death" will make him more aware of the situations now.
Unlike Like KonoSuba, the show takes into more account of the gaming background of the MC, it felt like we returning on the cutscene evrytime we die in the game.
Excited to see the reunion of Subaru and Stella (still not her real name?!).

It's a subtle but very saddening aspect about this whole revival thing. For example, he can have the most beautiful moments with a person but if he is forced to revive those memories are all gone. Not only that but he also has to act like they never happened. I wouldn't be able to treat someone as a stranger when I was so close with that person before that revival. This whole concept has some pretty interesting twists to it so look forward :)

Um so? The bag serves as physical proof of what's happening and confirms his memories (i.e. as he's not going crazy). That's it's point.

As he says he's situation is hard to believe, and if told anyone about he would be laughed out the room.

Satella saved the kid again <3 she's awesome.

My heart was racing the entire episode.

That moment with Elsa had me like "Omg...omg!" Then he busted out that "beauty" comment and you could just FEEL the tension.

The moment with Felt was cute as well, when they were on the bridge.

That ending though...did not expect that, awesome episode.

Very good OP both song and visuals and what's more it fits the series.

As for the episode, it was good as well, although naturally the shocking value is no longer here. Well the second episode was still good but something needs to start happening. One thing I am quite disappointed in was that the anime did not manage to express the emptiness that comes from MC knowing the other people, yet them not knowing him... maybe it's too early for that as the connection is not build up in the story just yet but this will happen eventually.

I also liked how viewer was given a hint to predict "Silver-chan" appearance at the end of the episode... . It was quite obvious that if MC's message "Don't go there" will reach her, she will definitely go there. I generally like such in-episode puzzles.

I barely understood what the heck you are talking about but how about you pay bit more attention? What is the one Satella could have done to find to Felt that she displayed last week? Besides Subaru as ended up delaying Felt in this timeline so she and getting to loot a lot than she would have otherwise making easier for Satella to find them.

And why so obsessed with attacking this show anyway?

Reincarnation doesn't work that way. It's process of how souls pass from one life to next, you never returned being the same person nor do ever go backs in time.

Good ep. Glad that Subaru figured out he's got a save point at the beginning of the ep.

Reinhard seems cool. I wonder how strong he is...in comparison to Elsa for example?

But really, Elsa's way too f'n sexy :L Dem lips. I guess not meeting Subaru made Emillia reach way faster. This is gonna be interesting when Elsa comes.

Subaru's got some moves tho dodging Elsa like that and all :O

The ED is so gooood <3

Oh, that's fine then. I'm just that it's not weird for small things like that to be the key to understand something. A missing piece of puzzle so to speak. Happens all the time in things like investigations or even inventions and such.
