Let’s face it.
There are lots of great anime shows.
Never in my whole life, however, have I watched something that (1) I thought was dull at first and (2) I thought was awesome at last until Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu.
Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu or Re:Zero – Starting Life In Another World
Based on Tappei Nagatsuki’s light novel series, Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu is the perfect epitome of unexpectedness that can only be either heartwarming or heartwrenching. The first episode tells us how 17-year-old Natsuki Subaru, a loner and a hardcore gamer, somehow ended up in another world full of magical creatures. There, he met a half-elf princess named Emilia and her cat-like guardian named Puck.
Emilia posed herself as Satella while collaborating with Subaru to get back her royal insignia that was stolen by a slum kid named Felt. The name Satella, however, was that of the infamous Jealous Witch, to which Emilia reacted angrily when Subaru called after her the second time around – following the events that got him and Emilia brutally killed in the slum pawnshop where Felt was supposed to appear, as well as returning back to life (later called, Return To Death) and meeting Emilia and Puck again; but with no memories of them meeting him from the first time they met.
From there, the main theme of Return To Death and the lead character’s growing love for Emilia (a wholesome kind of love, unlike the kind of love we usually see from an Ecchi boy lead character) gets more intense as they meet new characters along the way – all of which would play bigger parts later on in the show. Even more so, the way the anime show was created is one great way to make viewers rave about it for a long time.
Binge-watch on this anime show right now and see for yourself what I’m talking about!
