    Anime Announcement S2
    Well, Season 2 got officially announced at AnimeJapan. Personally, I only expected a Bond of Ice PV, but we got Season 2 confirmation, which is hype!

    Y'all can share your thoughts here if ya want. I'm very hyped about the adaptation. Though, it appears to be just Arc 4, luckily. Arc 4 and Arc 5 would have been a mess.

    • I'm very excited, what we'll actually see in the second season. The poster suggests that it'll be expanded only Arc 4. Which is a little sad, but due to the new main objective of rescue Rem, we can expect more and more seasons animated. Until the fans favorite Rem isn't awaken, the plot of anime series must move forward.

    • This is just speculation, but I assume it's the same with Attack on Titan, second season takes 4 years to wait, and the 3rd only 1 year. At least, that's just me hoping!

    • Ya, that's very probable scenario. The problem with waiting for second season was that directors have reduced these series much. Cut scenes, changes in important dialogues and the ending which was supposed to make a false happy ending. They defeated The White Whale and Petelguese, everybody are saved and Subaru is happy with Emilia. Nothing could be more wrong. But. Now that trick is impossible to realize. Rem is in coma and nothing can change that, until the events in Arc 6/7, maybe? The main objective is unfinished. That's why we can probably be conviced, that expactance of faster release the next season is confirmed. Too much risk at this moment.

    • While I'm disappointed that it's only gonna be arc 4 that is only gonna be covering, I'm happy that season 2 is gonna be made. But hey, on the plus side, I don't have to read Arc 4 ver of the LN, otherwise, I'd have to waste money and wait 2 years for Arc 4 LN to be finished and give us Arc 5 already. Besides, the anime would've be over before Arc 4 would be finished in the west...

      It would be case for AoT tho, as it makes sense to stop at a 1 year time gap between 4 and 5. But it's possible that it could adapt side stories just like both Slime and Goblin Slayer, or else the side stories would be OVAs. So if possible, season 3 would cover at least arcs 5 and 6, or if possible, arc 7, as 1 season, if the author completes arc 7.

    • There wasn't a possability for Arc 4 and Arc 5 being adapted in one season, as it would be more than 25 episodes. In addition to that, there is a time skip between the two arcs, and would be adapted awkwardly.

    • Although, after rewatching the trailer couple of times, theres something that didn't make sense. Like, why, when, and how did Cruch die, AND HOW THE HELL DID' RICARDO DIE?!' They didn't die in arc 3 nor they appeared in arc 4(except Ricardo did appear in Otto's flasback, but it technically doesn't count because it takes place during arc 3). And not to mention that the LN removed Subaru's 11th death, so it doesn't really make any sense to add it here and couldn't add the WN source into the anime. 1st teaser and we already got a plot hole.

      That's not a plot hole. This teaser just isn't canon. Figuratively, presents all the important characters in season 2, that we already know. I didn't see Ricardo in this teaser. Crusch is here, because she's with Rem in the carriage. That's why we don't see Prischilla, Ferris or other Al - they don't appear in the season 2, which is another confirmation of the only arc 4 theory

      Right? I already called it that Re:Zero would take 4 years for a season 2.

      You said once Arc 4 in the light novels anyway it was overblown or overrated. Well in the LNs perhaps but hopefully the anime will make it a easier transition.

      Also I think season 2 (my speculation anyway) it will be 14 episodes long is my bet.

    • This doesn't confirm that only arc 4 is going to be covered, guys.  It's not unusual for marketing to only preview the first cour of a two-cour anime season.  Given when this was announced, I still strongly suspect that they intend to adapt arc 5.

      Ricardo is in the bottom right next to Beatrice and under Roswaal if you pause in 0:54, you can he has the Hoshin logo and trace from his body and to his arm under (persumably) Roswaal legs and to Bea's back. Not to mention Kadomon is in the background around that same time frame. Luckily that teaser isn't canon, otherwise I'll die.

      I did say that Arc 4 was overrated, but I also say disappointed, too. So many ideas in that arc is just all over the place. But I'm still watching it tho since I don't really need to read and spend my money on Arc 4 (aka the Arc that would probably take 2 years to finish in the west, and arc 6 would be completed by then). I'd say the season would be finished in between 16-20 episodes, because 14 would be kinda short and cut several contents.

    • You know, after moments of thinking after watching the teaser, this teaser make me wanna hate Edchidna for killing Ricardo, no matter if it's either her dream world or non-canon or not. >:T

      Maybe that is short but if they are just doing one arc then it may not take as many episodes as 20. So you think Arc 4 will be fully translated in the West by 2021?

      I said around 16-20 episodes, maybe 22 or 23. If they're gonna put exactly 25 episdes, maybe add side story content into the show just like Reincarnated as a Slime anime.

      And as for Arc 4 will be finished by 2021, It's more like Arc 4 would be finished around 2020/2021 and Arc 5 will start in 2021 since EX vol 3 is releasing next month.

    • Since EX 3 has a connection to some of the characters in Arc 5. At least on the plus side Yen Press is hurrying the heck with the volumes with per year, if you don't count the spin-off EX novels.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, but at the same time, the EX volumes reveals too much spoilers whats gonna happen too early, like how EX 1 revealed a spoiller whats gonna happen in either vol 6 or 7 instead of consistant release date..

        Loading editor
    • I don't think the EX volumes as spoilers per say but rather connecting the dots or filling in the gaps of the characters and their backstories and what made them into what they are now.

      Plus it helps give more in depth look into the world of Re:Zero.
