Looking at the comments on Crunchyroll, people REALLY don't seem to like this episode. At all.


If anything this episode made it clear what people have a clear understanding of storytelling and who is simply here for the fights, the guts, the blood and the "Wow, badass" moments or in other words popcorn anime.
To be fair though, after spending 23 minutes pouring her heart out and saying she loves him, he just goes 'lol nope I love Emilia' and proceeds to say the same exact shit he did in episode 12. He learned nothing.
I'm not mad about the shipping or whatever, I'm just mad at Subaru for essentially taking one step forward and two steps back.

Came here because the episode 18 thread is cancerous.

Can a LN reader spoil Subaru's backstory for me? Personally, Subaru's character and his development has easily been the most intriguing part of Re:Zero and easily sells the show to me (as I relate to him on so many levels). So I've been waiting for the show to reveal his past and I expected it to happen this episode judging by where it was going.

I doubt he ever said he hated himself, I doubt he ever said before this point that he hated how he did nothing even before he got transported before anything happened he was already broken. His mistake stems from the though that he was 'the mc'' in this world and as such his self loathing side got even more buried. But after what was it 4 encounters? You got to see his self-loathment peek out, this episode was not about some stupid shipping war subplot this episode was about Subaru getting over not only his immediate psychological problems but a deep rooted self-loathment that could neither be understood by himself or others until m'man FreREM went full on couch therapy.

However, imo, it would be better if the author had gone to a very strong friendship between Rem and Subaru, it would not change anything in the story, and maybe we would't have this waifu war. But well nothing is perfect.

Episode 18 is on the front page of reddit. I don't think any of the earlier episodes made it there before.

Wow everybody saying how they or other are drowning in salt but I'm drowning in tears after the best episode of the series and one of the episodes I have ever seen in my life.

Since I've a watched it a few moments ago I have not much words to describe this beautiful and powerful ep.

Now the next big episode will be if they hold the pace ep.21, the next waterfall I will be drowning in.

Really regretting not buying an official Rem cover. Everyplace is out of stock now.
Greetings, I am Nukemind. I watched Anime as a child, dropped it, and picked it up again thanks to seeing a show I watched as a child on someone's iPad. Since then I have devoured it. I recently joined MAL, happy to be here- I've watched many more shows than I have listed... I just need to find them all. And I'm to lazy to list what I rewatched. Above all, remember.

Rem is best girl.

I'm closely following the amazon stalker rankings ever since the episode released.

Volume 2 + 3: Almost top 50 -> close to top 10

Volume 1: Mid top 200 -> Top 50

Volume 4: Low top 200 -> Top 100

Volume 5-9: Not present -> High-Mid top 200

And nothing seems to stop them. If this continues we could actually look at a volume 1-9 top 100.

Learned nothing? That episode wasn't even about that. The answer wasn't to fuck Rem, was about Subaru growing up and to facing his problem and making better effort towards his goals seriously none have anything to do with Rem's feelings for him. He moved forward unless you're shipperfag which you actually are.

Noooo. Was only able to upload like 8 images for my NSFW album. Aunt really needs to say when she comes and goes. Had like 100kb/s upload speed. Over 1.5 hours for those images.

I think a good bit is because of how she took it. If she yelled and screamed and stormed off it would be one thing. Instead, she agreed to help him get Emilia, swallowing her sadness to make him happy.

Even at her darkest sadness moments, she strives to make those she cares for (Ram, Subaru) happy.

Please spoiler tag that, it's on borderline spoiler territory due to its hinting on how people will feel at the end hence creating a spoiler thought imagery^^

Also, nah not everyone feel that way. Hey, I'm the most immature Rem fanboy you see here... yet I stick here for 14 weeks salting away every posts.

Both have a difficult life.. and both series were made by WhiteFox.

If we are at it, the "Break the Cutie" trope is interesting.

Episode 15 was volume 5.

I'm confident it will be as good for a good amount of people because of different reasons.

If you want
then yeah this might be a blast to almost everyone :)

6 god damn volumes are within the top 100 on amazon stalker.

The other 3 volumes are scratching it and at this rate they will also make it.

This series is starting to form what could be one of the most solid volume averages since a long time.

Vol.1 is still going good.

But Vol.7 includes Ep.18 :D
I'm sure they will buy that more now.

Only Vol.8 and Vol.9 left I would say.

And here i disagree.
Subaru as has the balls to reject Rem and make his feelings clear. (Yeah i hated Subaru for a moment there VIVA REM)
In every other 08/15 Fantasy clische LN Story the MC wouldn't reject one girl because he dont want the hate from the girl.
What even more amazing is Rem is no cliche anime waifu from XYZ Harem/LN story and was mature enough to accept Subaru`s feelings for Emilia.
She could take this chance and say fuck everyone i get my Subaru now that i love. But she is so mature enough to do the right thing because she truly loves him

And ReZero isnt even a romance Anime
No stupid awkward confess thingy. No cliche shy girl. Just 2 people talking about how they feel for each other.
This is freaking good romance development.
Jesus with this episode of character development ReZero shit on all cliche LN/Anime MCs so far. Every stupid Harem/Fantasy/LN MC that never talked to the main heroine or side harem girls about his feelings towards her got shit all over his body right now.

Something like this is what i want from a romance in real romance Anime. Something like this i want to see in Harem Anime. Not 12-24 Episodes where nothing happens between the MCs and the girls.
Jesus as i said this Anime isn`t even about romance and did so well with this realtionship.

Tappei didn't really say anything this week. He concentrated all of his attention to the episode this week as it was pretty much new for him as well.

After the episode was finished it became clear that he was speechless and rather overwhelmed as he lacked any words. So White Fox pleased him A LOT. I mean having your LN chapter, the content your wrote adapted word by word into an entire episode is a really big honor and moment for him. If this isn't showing the utmost respect to him, then I don't know.

Maybe he will add something throughout the week :)
