Seemingly a clichéd story with a typical fantasy setting, yet gives a unique concept. Japanese fantasies regarding the Middle Age and western folklores like fairies are often the mainstream, altogether giving the audience a soothing and exhilarating ambiance, but what would we feel after everything suddenly gets swatted? That’s how the author often builds the story up. Being the siren of the fantasy gen it first lulls the readers and then suddenly tears your ephemeral paradise down. The ending, which vividly describes the gore of the MC’s misery, births another... more>> episode of a new dark fantasy. It always buds a new day, after a horrifying nightmare of your sleep.

Would've rated it a perfect score if the author were actually making this story to develop the MC through twisted diligence and tragic cataclysms, instead of torturing him down to his bones. (That's as of the latest volume. Would like to revise if changes would appear.) <<less

This LN twists your usual idea of the "Transported to another world" setting. It shows some of the pain that comes and not just happy-go-lucky adventure and fun. Usually we think of time travel as fun and convenient, but this shows how Subaru has to go through the pain of meeting someone all over again after already seeing them die. He even has to build his relationships back up, which can be really hard if you used to be particularly close with them. I give this 10/10 cicadas

One of the very few novels that are in the "must read" list if you are into reading great novels. I knew about the series from the popular anime, but the reading experience wasn't below the anime at all. If you're sick and tired of the travel to a fantasy/ game world stories and decided to skip Re:Zero then you'll be missing out on a master piece.

I think it's obvious by now but I'm a huge fanboy when it comes to Re:Zero, to make it easy for you if you... more>> don't want to read a complete review that goes in depth about the story and want a simple yes/no answer then here are some of my favorite works of fiction in novels/anime/manga, see if my tastes aline with yours (if not then you have sh*t tastes?)

Spice and Wolf, ISSTH, Coiling dragon, Douluo Dalu, overlord, Hunter X Hunter, shingeki no kyojin, Berserk, Steins;Gate, log horizon, Tower of god, red storm, vinlad saga.

Lastly I think it's a given but all of the above are great so go read/watch them if you somehow managed to live until now without doing that yet. <<less

Incredible writing fight scene/battle. One of the best light novel of all time for sure. And is one of unique and special isekai while main character is not overpowered, because he is weak af but still want to solve all problems he has, very very greedy but also admirable. One of the reason I very like Subaru because he never abandon others, always find a way to save everyone no matter how many times you have to die yourself. And, yes. This is masterpiece LN in my opinion. While anime... more>> adaptation is still very good, but never can't compared with LN.

Also, Pandora is best girl of series. <<less

Probably the best series i've ever read in my opinion. Or at least it would be, if the author actually showed Subaru's growth after being killed and dying so many times. Still a 5/5 though, despite my only complaints
