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 attempts to return the favor by helping her track down something that was stolen from her. 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 to a certain point by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death?

Well, this is my very first review, so I don't have a big skill of writing it, furthermore English is not even my native language, so I apologize for the mistakes. By the time of writing I have read first 4 arcs of WN.

Re:Zero is one of my most favourite light novels. It takes very common concept like "Ordinary Japanese High School Student is being transported into alternative world" and adds to this generic thing some originality through concept which is very common in video games — respawn.

Story — 8/10

Time travel, being transported into an RPG like world and the main protagonist meeting a beautiful girl in this world that has something to do with his fate. None of this is something you have never seen before in the world of anime and manga. However, you have to give credit to the author of this light novel series, I couldn't help but get into the way the author executed this story. After watching the first few episodes of the anime, I just had to read the original light novel which the anime was adapted from.

Each chapter of the light novel series seems to read more

Re:Zero gained a lot of popularity from the anime that aired in 2016, and it's not hard to see why. It had an interesting story, lovable characters, and fantastic music. I have quite a bit to say, and I'll aim to avoid spoilers if I can.

Story - 10/10. It's fantastic. It delves so much deeper into the world than I could have ever imagined, and having all these loops and turns with Return by Death gave me a very Zero Escape/Steins;Gate feel which I really love. I usually don't like fantasy world stories like this, but Re:Zero gave me a new outlook.

Art - 10/10. The read more

[Spoiler Warning]

Go to another world stories are easy to write, it is an undead horse that will keep having people ride it, hit it, mock it, praise it. At this point even "subversions" have become its own cliche.

So anyway, Re:zero, a show that is pretty bad, which was basically torture porn for 2-cour. A lot of people already shat on the anime so I may as well do it for the source.

At the time of writing, I have finished all the LN and gotten into the next arc of the WN, and ohhhhhhhhhh god is it horrible.

Plot - 3

First of all, the writing is read more
