Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Alias: Re: Life in a different world from zero, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Genres: Drama, Fantasy Studio: White Fox Premiere Date: April X, 2016 Episode Count: 25 Adaptation: Light Novel Streaming: Crunchyroll,
Plot: 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 cooperates with her to return the favor. 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 by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death?
If you want to find out what's coming out this season, we completed the Spring 2016 Anime Guide albeit without the Winter 2016 leftovers. I'm not sure what's going to keep running right now. I'm still keeping an eye on updates. We got word on one show being postponed, Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Friends. This show is safe since it has a simulcast.
Ep.1: it was split into two parts and I really enjoyed it. Kid gets transported to a fantasy world and is actually aware of his situation. The only thing he doesn't realize he's stuck in a ground hog's day scenario every time he dies. This held my interest better then Endride
See Crunchyroll divide the hour special into two episodes. First episode focused on Satella while the 2nd focused on another retake that introduces Felt and the old man. The tone of the show went dramatic after he and Satella were killed.
Enjoyed the pilot. Milked some tropes nicely. Protagonist was trying to force cliches in and was aware of what it was due to his gamer. He is not your regular NEET, he trains. Too bad, he doesn't know he is in a time loop.
EP1, A neet that trains his body! now thats something new lol. I loved this episode, the twists, the blood! the animation! the characters! the ed song. This is now my anime of the season! Spring is looking good so far.
Some news: the show is getting spin-off in a chibi short format
The official website for the Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- (Re: Life in a different world from zero or Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) television anime series announced on Thursday that the series will get a spinoff of anime shorts that will air after each episode's airing on the AT-X channel. The short, titled Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Break Time, will feature the characters from the anime in super-deformed form.
The shorts will start after the first episode premieres on AT-X on April 8. The shorts will then stream on the show's official site for a limited time afterward.
Ep.2: hey Subaru found out he's stuck in ac time loop within the first couple of minutes of the episode and is already attempting to use what he knows to get the insigna back and and prevent people from being killed. Got introduced to a new character too
2nd episode = protagonist doesn't know he's in a time loop yet. If he plays games, how come he has never play a game with time skip stuff. A new character was introduced. 3rd Cycle - protagonist dies in an alley. 4th cycle - met a knight. Didn't befriend silver elf girl. Went to Felt instead again but things changed. Instead of Elsa appearing for the deal, it was the silver elf. Though, Elsa might come back later in the next episode.
2nd episode - I wished things resolve a bit quicker since we have first episode an hour long.
The short shows Subaru, Emilia, and Puck beside a market stall, with Subaru remarking that he cannot read the words on the signs. Emilia, surprised at Subaru's penniless state, asks him how he even got to this world, and he answers "in a fantasy-ish light novel-y way." Subaru comments that at least some of the terms in use in his new world are somewhat similar to Japanese, though with something off about them. When a bell pepper falls from one of the stands, Emilia reacts unusually, and Subaru asks her what's wrong. She says that she cannot eat bell peppers, as they are green demons.
It was a thrilling episode. The only flaws were consistency in animation. Until Reinhard came in, the animation spiked up in quality as Elsa reveals her full potential and Reinhard showing a sample of his power.
Cliffhanger - Why did Reinhard react that way when Felt presented Emilia's insignia? It leaves you with questions.
Ep 3 was good, and had a decent animation. What I find weird is whats with Stella or Emila or whatever her real name is, would lie to Subaru about her name? it seems her real name is Emilia so who's Stella the jealous witch? other than that amazing ending that left us with more questions. Also I hope Subaru stops with the weird poses he makes, its creeping the hell outta me.
Taka: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
