…emt, emT, eMT, EMT! (I chanted in my head).

If you’re reading this first impression, I’m going to assume that you’ve seen the first season. It’s no surprise that Re:Zero’s second season will bring a lot of themes from its predecessor, however; I can confirm that this season will bring more pain and suffering than we’ve ever experienced. I hope you all are ready for this rollercoaster because I’m not.

Exhibit A:

It’s only the first few minutes of what seems like the happy ending that we saw at the end of season one only to be shattered into a mere pipe dream.

If you thought Betelguese was bad, let me introduce you to the next two Sin Archbishop of the Witch’s Cult. Regulus Corneas of Greed (left) and Lye Batenkaitos of Gluttony (right). Both with gruesome power not unlike what Betelguese possessed.

And if it didn’t hurt already with the development of the show and Rem’s unfortunate fate…the flashes of light right before Rem’s memories and name is devoured by Lye Batenkaitos are pictures of what could’ve happened. I’m not crying, you are!

Exhibit B:

After seeing so many death scenes…I still don’t think I can get used to them. The way it’s drawn, the shaking of the camera, Subaru’s expressions, and the ominous chant that sounds when he revives will forever haunt me. But that’s also the charm and excitement that comes from watching Re:Zero as no show has come close to provoking such feelings within me.

Exhibit C:

I’m going to leave this last bit here, as it will be every single one of us by the time the season end. Good luck to you all.

Recommendation:

YES

Re:Zero is one of those shows that will traumatize you mentally, the heavyweight of loss and pain is imminent and there’s literally no escape…not even death. To returning fans, welcome back! To new fans, let us begin.

  • I actually dropped season 1 a few years ago but with season 2 almost airing its first episode, I watched it again two weeks ago from the beginning with an open mind and… I’m so glad I did!! I adore Rem’s character so much! I don’t particularly hate Emilia, I just like have bias towards this tiny but strong and kind girl!!

    Episode 1 of season 2 was a shocker since it just jumped straight into the action but it had me hooked!

    • Hi Nikita Chand.! Thanks for stopping by and I’m glad you took the dive back into Re:Zero! I support your love for Rem! To be honest, I was hoping for this second season to be a little happier since the ending of the first season was traumatizing but I’m still looking forward to seeing how everything unfolds!
