Maybe Bettelgeuse's essence was what drove him mad too. Which is not good reassuring for Subaru

Nah I think this is how the character is designed. He will probably regularly have these moments of doubt/madness and panic. It's hard to tell how a person with such a "superpower" would behave. You can be like "man this is f*cked up, oh well, guess I need to jump from a cliff to restart". But he can very well feel anxiety if he will "restart" at the same point or if he will even "restart" altogether... Plus his deaths are usually gruesome and he seems to remember the pain at least, so its not a particularly pleasant "experience".

EDIT: Mild spoilers Turns out in novels Subaru "rabbit" incident was even more gruesome (as in the rabbits literally entered/munched on every "hole" in his body and met midway, yeah). No wonder the guy was so agitated after the restart.

Sucks to be him...

SPOILER

I believe Echidna was both truthful and untruthful with Subaru in her last statement. Fitting for her name, really. She managed to twist a factual statement in such a way that must have won her Young Su as an ally. He is indeed a tool enough to accept fake affection from an obvious KEIKAKU character like her.

END

On another note, why are so many chapters of the manga only translated in Spanish? *Sigh* And now even the anime is ahead of the manga! I want my picture book, damn it, I don't like reading light novels!

Dropped it after first episode. It's generic and poorly made. I belive it was some kind of ambitious project (Yoshi-taka Amano is the chara-designer), but it turned out half-assed.

Speaking of generic, poorly made and half-assed (well, maybe not to the extent of Gibiate), I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm loosing my time with Tower of God. I'm at the point where I just can't be bothered to care for anything that happens anymore, no matter how good the action is. And that's because they're not creating any build-up for anything or exploring the characters. Some bad guy trope appears to serve as the episode's cannon fodder, gets a beating and everything moves on to the next episode's bad guy. If that's supposed to be the power up method of the main characters (which it evidently is from this week's episode), it's not satisfying or genuine.

I remember how Naruto did things, or Bleach, or Hunter, it's like it elevated it to an art. Entire episodes dedicated to intense training, figuring out techniques, mental and physical stress leading to resolve and character development, and all of that sometimes amounting for nothing more than incremental power gain or useful tricks. And you felt the power gouge of the characters, their strengths and weaknesses, their limits. With Tower of God all of that is up in the air, literally anything can happen. And it does happen, and it's disappointing.

I've heard the anime is pretty bad adaptation of the source material. Misses much on the character building and generally cuts out some important stuff.

I've reached third season and currently taking a break. Has had some highs but it went full shonen. Never go full shonen. It's like reading noblesse all over again.

Spoiler

The author has came up with an interesting dynamic: Subaru's Return by Death is probably limitless so that would make him go full "don't give an f* if I die" mindset. But the thought that through his mistakes he might not be able to save his loved ones still makes him thread carefully. The ability somehow dictates that only he is of importance, so everybody else might as well die off. Hence the Witch of Envy

That said... this episode is one of those "c'mon, squeeze some more info out of her!", but unfortunately there is a timer on how long Subaru can stay in Echidna's place. Shame, I was absorbing all these info as a sponge and didn't want it to stop. The conversations with the Witches were pretty intense, so many ambiguous matters like how the Great Mabeasts were made to satiate the hungry. What an irony this turned out to be

Best series ever? Might actually be so...

I already gave it a 10 since last episode. Maybe not the best series ever, but definitely the best isekai there is. It's not even doing it justice to call it an isekai. The vast majority out there are trash and only bring it down when put under that same label. Also this episode was amazing, all the eccentric appearances and the last one which I did not think would surface yet. But it was great. Also, I do hope you've seen the last scene as well, basically confirming many things about Roswaal.

Subaru not realizing everyone else got oousagi'd :rolleyes: Then being concerned about looking like a jerk in front of a witch and being a retard instead More witches, yay! In the end.. I'm guessing minor case of possession ^^ Love the idea behind the creations of the great beasts.

Mild spoilers
I think you're a bit harsh with him. So many things going on, his mind getting broken, his body torn to shreds. And he literally keeps the sensation of his death after the restart (it's when how you wake up from a dream in which you had an accident of some kind and still feel the "phantom" pain). Yep, I also would like him to react/proceed differently in so many cases, but I think he is still being pretty leveled about this and the guy proved his capable on few occasions already. He is no superhero (he won't summon a power to save the day, like a lvl 100 spell or sth), he has a power that lets him redo things, but he still faces so many ordeals that even a wiseman would have trouble with it (plus he is still learning the ins and outs of this world, nobody teached him the ropes like about the Witches history etc). The witches themselves seem to be unstable entities, it's really hard to talk to a loli that is able to create infinitely replicating carnivorous bunnies, while she herself looks like she wanted to gobble you up wholly...

For me why Re: Zero is so good (and hope it stays that way) is the fact that the author has a clear vision for it and never stops to either surprise or keep you in suspense. So many potentially good Isekai's end up bad after a few arcs because either the author didn't think he will have success with it and had just material/ideas for a single novel, or isn't a good writer to begin with. See SAO or Danmachi and many others for reference.

To be frank I didn't think of it myself at the beginning. It makes sense after just a few seconds of connecting the dots, but I initially thought they simply left in a hurry after some kind of event. Maybe he wasn't so much as surprised, but shocked.

And yep, he handshaked a lovable and cute loli. He expected some kind of a freak (actually looking at Daphne his first impression would be vastly different). You see, humanity has a built in trust mechanism for everything "cute loli". Unfortunately it doesn't usually end well when talking paragraphs XD

Well, he was instructed this way and although formaly he didn't touch her, he touched Typhon who butted in. At this point he probably was loli-shocked so didn't think straight and we know how it turned out Maybe if Daphne appeared first he wouldn't, seeing her form.

As you probably noticed, Subaru has a thing for cute lolis. Well, maybe not in a perverted way, but he sees them as harmless and trustworthy.
