This is my first review on MAL. I just finished rewatching Re: Zero, so I would like to share my opinions with you.
The story is about a guy who gets transported to a fantasy world and has the power to "return from death". Personally, I really like stories where characters, after dying, find themselves alive a few days/hours before they actually died. I also really like the fact that Subaru (the main character) learns from his mistakes each time he dies and eventually manages to survive. This story is not only about survival, but also about love and friendship.
I would have given it
a 10 if only CGI wasn't used.
Artstyle is amazing (especially how facial features are drawn), and it fits my tastes perfectly.
Fight scenes are good, but again, they shouldn't have used CGI to animate people/dogs in the background.
All the intros/outros are amazing, especially the outros, that blend perfectily with the final part of each episode.
Soundtrack overall is very good, and it varies from light-hearted music for less serious moments, to creepy music for death scenes and serious moments in general. The music or these parts in particular is a combination of violin-like instruments that play along with female voices. This strange choice of instruments and vibes is, in my opinion, very recognizable and iconic, and it's unique to this series, and that's probably why it is one of the things I remembered the most from this anime.

Subaru was, before watching Konosuba, my favourite main character of all time.
Every choice he makes throughout the anime is the one I would have made too, if I were him (apart from choosing Emilia instead of the perfect waifu Rem).
All the other main characters are unique, and none of the supporting characters is too "general" or "clichèed".
I just watched 10 episodes in a row today, and yesterday the other 15. I think that pretty much gives away how much I enjoyed this anime.
I recommend it to everyone.
