Original reddit post
(I apologize if this is skirting too close to )

Don't get too excited, though, it cuts out less than I was expecting. Even with all the failures removed, it's still drat over 5 hours long. Cool idea, though.
It is indeed iffy, because while the series as a whole (I think even the shorts and ovas? I haven't checked in a while) is legally available in Crunchyroll, I really don't think that Kadokawa is looking forward to do something like this officially.

Also, please keep spoiler talk light or non-existent. A lot of folks haven't read/don't want to read neither the light novels nor the web version.

Episode 15 is "Crushing Despair and Horror" in a very neat, streamlined form. It's the sort of thing that you'd expect from the usual suspects/a seasoned veteran in the topic (Ito, Umezu, Tomino, early Nasu, Urobuchi, y'know the drill), but in this day and age, it's frankly mind-blowing just how completely desolating it makes you feel watching/listening/experiencing that bit.

I am kinda glad that I didn't decide to tackle the novels now that the 2nd season has been announced, because I absolutely want to know where does the story go next and, more specifically, I want to see it animated.

Hopefully we can keep this to a minimum? If you feel like spilling it out, just take it to PM's or something. Season 2 still doesn't have an air-date as of yet and while I don't terribly mind (mostly because I've gotten good at disassociating spoilers from things I haven't seen/read/heard thanks to an rear end in a top hat co-worker that took glee in spoiling the first 8 arcs of The Walking Dead comic), I'm sure there are plenty of people who would rather not have to waddle through posts spoiling stuff from the novels.

Putting things behind spoiler bars is good if there's a disclaimer, but again, preferably just don't do it (or if you have plat, just PM the goon who's itchin' to get spoiled rotten).

It kinda reminds me of a game I played recently and it left a similar vibe, storywise, but I think Emilia's decision in-story was definitely one that made sense. Like yeah, as the audience we know "Oh crap! This is going to bite everyone in the keister real bad!", but the characters don't know that, and I think the narrative made a good job of showing the moment in all its painful glory.

Haven't seen it (1st season did nothing from me) but from everything I read they included the Shield Hero and then they literally put him in a different class that doesn't interact with the rest of the cast at all. Which sounds hilariously stupid.

Memory Snow reminded me why it's one of my favorites.

Also I've only seen the show so roughly where are the arcs separated? Is it every time he gets a new save point? Or is it more arbitrary based on where each novel ends?
Sorta/Sorta not? I admit that I haven't read the novels, but basically with Arcs 1 and 2 (the first 12/13 episodes) that holds true, whereas in Arc 3 there are at least 2, if not 3 save points.

Yeah, if it's just stuff that's already happened, you can sorta discuss it like Julias previously recommended.

But also, you don't have to quote huge chunks of text. Just like "Oh, Regulus said this and elaborated on this a bit more on the OG web novel/light novel".

I mean hell, I've been looking forward to this adaptation almost as much as y'all, and last thing I want to worry about are spoilers.

Danke.

Like this is the one mainstream show I was looking forward to seeing, not reading and I'm glad that, even through almost 4 years of wait, I never got spoiled beyond the "Who's Rem?" thing. I think if session 3 takes a while to be announced, I'm just going to go and read it from there on, but yeah, I'd rather see Arc 4 animated before making the jump to the Light Novels or even the Web Novels.

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.

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.

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.

Ytlaya posted:

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."
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.

Yes. I'm still not 100% certain that such a detail will get skipped and I still sorta think it might make it into the second half, but I at least appreciate that you decided to spoiler-tag it and present the warning. I still haven't read the novels myself, but I think that, once the 2nd cour of this season finishes airing, I'm gonna stop dithering and just take the plunge.
