Well I feel it all just depends on what people like and dislike. I personally felt attached to this anime because I've been watching it since the very moment the first episode came out. I didn't know what I was expecting. Out of everything I hated the main protagonist Subaru. I hated his face and how much he refused to ever make a change. But what made me become attached was the ending of many of the episodes where I'm like "Oh shit! What the fuck was that?" It's like Groundhog Day, but with everyone dying each time. To me I feel this anime deserves a 9/10. Don't get me wrong I hate Subaru as much as everyone else, especially since he is SO FUCKING USELESS. And at this point of the anime I no longer give a shit about Emilia. Hell, I hope they don't end up saving everyone in that mansion. All I want is for him to stop being so much of a shitty character. Like please, I know all of the typical harem guys that have girls flock around them even though they are completely unattractive personality wise, but can Subaru just stop? It's a love/hate relationship with this anime.

But it's absolutely not an over hyped anime. It's just.... a terribly good anime.

Well considering the show has no redeeming qualities besides combining cute girls, ultra-violence, and otaku pandering it's obviously overrated.

Well it's a good thing I'm not an Otaku.

Sometimes a lot of anime does consist of cute girls and ultra violence. Although several of my favorite anime mainly just consists of cute girls.

How am I an Otaku? I don't have an obsession with anime or rather I lack there of any obsession to anything. I spend more time in my life looking for an anime to get into than watching it.

I was just wondering if i was the only one who finds re:zero among the most overrated anime around, because all i see is constant praise for this show, yet i find it painfully average.

I have to admit i hate the show (even if the pacing was a mirror of the novel) for what it was but as the show continue this series just bores me more and more. I don't see the obsession with subaru either, he is such a weak protagonist who has an incredibly bare bones personality and gets very little development throughout the seasons (which is pretty much par for the course with the other characters too). He is also too powerful, there is never any real concern that he is going to lose at anything, which is just boring. The harem also annoys me to no end in this show since subaru and emilia is the main ship', yet they barely interact with one another. All the cast of the show do now is fanny about doing the same stuff i with no real purpose, at it's core it's like watching someone play a video game (and since they can't die there is no real risk anymore). I can't see past that so most of the tension during fights is killed for me. I appreciate in the newest episodes they have developed on rem's character quite a bit which is very refreshing.

I'm not here to hate on the show, if you like it then fair play, i just don't get the hype that surrounds it and wanted to know if anyone felt the same way or if not what you like about the show so i can get a better idea of why it's so popular.

Sorry, but you used the word incorrectly.

On topic, I wouldn't say it's overrated if you come in with the right expectations, though I guess that goes for anything really. I also look forward to more than the ultra violence and the cute girls.

Before I post what I actually want to say I just want to mention that so far there's only one girl in love with Subaru and even though I'm not a harem expert I don't think one person is enough to call it a harem .

Why Re:Zero is so popular? Because it's a trap for (mainly) two different kinds of anime fans. We do have pretty generic designs for the characters and the world and the summary of the story also sounded like something you have seen too many times before ( Konosuba and Erased ) which was perfect to make people who like "Otaku gets transported into a new world, gets all the girls" stories watch it. And it didn't destroy this image in the first episode it just went a little bit darker and more serious and it's always nice to see a story leaving the normal path to do something a little bit more unusual. So when you get to the point where you realize that Subaru won't be the big hero who is loved by everyone you're already trapped inside the fandom . It's the same as with Madoka Magica and the magical girl fans.

And then there are the fans who would have never started watching it without the time-travel-through-death thing. When I saw the visuals and the first few sentences of the summary all I thought "No, no, no, no. Nope, surely not. I'm not going to watch this" until I found out about the actual plot. I wasn't sure about this series for a long time but I stayed because it's not just darker with more blood but also a pretty great mystery series. Every time when one question gets answered at least two new ones appear and even if you've figured out the major plot for the next few episodes or the rest of the season you can never be sure about the details.

Both kind of fans are surprised by this show and it offers more than enough for both of them to enjoy and then you still have the "regular" fans who would have watched and enjoyed it anyway, without being trapped into watching it . So, of course the fans are praising it and of course the fandom is pretty big and of course you don't like it if you're not a part of the pretty large target group (like always).

Subaru needs to pay more attention to best girl Betelgeuse instead of running around having an affair with the horny oni.

Horny oni best girl. Betelguese worst girl.


BlueOni is best girl.
