Ram might or might not have also been brainwashed over a period of years into feeling that love for a certain tall guy with clown makeup, starting from childhood.

So was the stuff up until the title card originally part of episode 6? Calling it "Maiden's Gospel" makes more sense if that were true.

While I don't mind spoilers for reasons that I don't want to elaborate here to not further derail this thread, I absolutely respect the decision of other goons/people in general to experience stuff with as fresh, spoiler-free a perspective as they wish.

Re:Zero is one of like the few shows where I've tried to stay away from spoilers because, like that one dish/food you only eat once a month, you want to savor that motherfucker. So let's keep spoiler chat to either the LN thread or to yourselves.

When I initially first saw this, I immediately thought today was tuesday and thought you were posting a screencap from a new episode, so I immediately nope'd out and checked to see if it was out, then I got very confused, realized it was Saturday and tentatively came back and realized it was a fanart gif. This is all wonderfully ironic.

Bunny Echidna -> Bunnidna.

Echidna is written Ekidona in kana. The sokuon at the end means it's a glottal stop.

You can absolutely talk about episodes. Like you can post something akin to "Hearing Mamiko Noto's normally 'sweet' typecast voice has become absolutely loving terrifying" or whatever you want as long as it's not spoilers of this arc (or any future arcs for that matter).

Also that is some incredibly cute fanart.

Eh, I kind of disagree with this beyond stuff that is limited to technical aspects of the episode's production, like the thing you mentioned or someone saying "I like how this part was animated," etc. Talking about the events of an episode as someone who has read ahead is kind of unavoidably and intrinsically a spoiler, because it tells people "this is the person's opinion about events/characters as someone who knows what happens in the future." For example, even something as simple as expressing positive opinions towards a character is the same as saying "this character won't become evil later."

It's imitating a scene from Jojo's where the Crusaders grudgingly drink lemonade to get a cafe owner to talk to them.

I dunno if it's supposed to be part of the joke or just a convenient thing to trace, though.

It's actually a scene from early part 5, but it does look a lot like that part 3 scene, now that I think about it! Especially how broad-shouldered Barusu looks.

I actually don't mind like "stuff coming from the perspective of goons who have read ahead" and such. I just don't want the whole arc to be spoiled.

It's not, it's a trace over of a bit in part 5 where a guy drinks a cup of tea filled with piss, which is how it relates to the top image of the meme.

I cried this episode. I could viscerally feel Subaru's loneliness and the weight of the burden he'd been carrying the whole time, and the sense of sheer joy and relief that he finally found a friend he could talk to about his experiences.

Echidna being all dere was cute too.
