RE:Zero Episode 2 – Reunion with the Witch

There were so many twists and turns in the first episode that i wondered how they could keep it up. How do you do a ground hog day theme, and still keep it fresh? Change what happens. If done poorly this could lead to confusion for the viewer. Thankfully they did a real good job, having Subaru react differently to the same situations, bringing different paths to the story. Subaru at this point knows what is going to happen, nobody else seems to be aware that the same day is occuring over and over again, this helps him to approach situations differently each time. Subaru knows that certain situations can lead to less then favorable outcomes, but no one seems to listen to him. We are introduced to another interesting character in Reinhard, a very easy going knight, who is known for his swordsmanship. He like the silver haired girl saves Subaru and wants to help him. His meeting with Subaru is very brief, but I am very interested to see what the story does with him. Although there are not quite as many schock moments as we already know Subaru is going to experience the same day over again, it is still engaging as you care about these characters and want to see Subaru figure out how to make a better outcome for all of them. You might be thinking I am being a bit vague about the returning characters, too say too much about them would be giving to much away and I am commited to being spoiler free. If you really want to know you could always PM me or perhaps talk about it in the comments below. Lets just say that I am continually impressed by the creativity of this Anime and cant wait to see what they have next.
Final Review – 8/10
Family Friendly Review – 8/10
There was a lot less blood, no swearing and it was a bit lighter then episode 1. There is a lot of humor and the characters are likeable.
