Puck is a spirit contracted to Emilia. His identity was revealed during the royal election speech, where during her speech (which was shortened in the anime) Roswaal provoked Subaru to instigate a few of the elders and the knights for her being a half-elf with silver hair. Puck, sensing danger and Emilia's distraught, appeared and threatened to freeze the ...

In any adaptation of a story from one version to another, there are going to be some edits. Originally, Re:Zero is a web novel and it is always the furthest along in the story. The story gets edited a bit as it gets transferred to the "official" light novel publication, and even more as it gets drawn as a manga. As far as my experiences though, the overall ...

I found a twitter post answering this exact same question and it appears that Crunchyroll merely split the one-hour episode in two parts. You should start with A, then continue to B, and then continue chronologically.

The short answer is... Yes, he was killed because of his witch smell. Rem is very suspicious of Subaru in this time frame. He is a new person, entering a household she has grown to love. Now think about it: if a new person, Subaru, comes in, has distinct clothing that she's never seen before, is very 'friendly' with Emilia the main guest of the house, and ...

The witch seems to have given him his Return by Death power and stops him when he tries to reveal it. The witch's motivations for giving him the power or keeping it secret have not been revealed yet. It seems pretty clear that there's no way for Subaru to overcome the witch and reveal the power -- when he tried to overpower the witch and reveal his ability ...

At about 11:00 in Episode 8. Beatrice explained the Jealous Witch to Subaru when talking about Subaru's "Witch Smell" in the library. Beatrice says only mad people will pretend to be the Jealous Witch. Suddenly, Subaru figures out the reason why Emilia pretended to be "Satella". That is because she didn't want someone else to get involved in the ...

Satella The Jealous Witch is in love with Subaru. Why though is not known to the current arc of the latest source arc 6 (web) may change in the official version (Published book). The first time we supposed to see her was supposed to be in the current anime arc which is arc 3 it is not shown during the anime but every time Subaru dies he is transported (...

Note: This contains spoilers toward recent episodes. The simple answer: He doesn't. The more in depth one: He keeps up the farce of not being 'insane' by convincing himself that what he is doing is for a good cause, to "save Emilia". It's stated multiple times throughout the series by Subaru himself, that everything he is doing is for "her sake". This ...

It is discuss by Emilia and Pack in the after event of the fight with Elsa (Chibi Short 3). Where Emilia ask Pack how come he respond to Subaru call and ask if they knew each other.

He said that because he was emotionally tired. He was confident that he couldn't do anything more than what he has done so far. At the moment, he didn't want to accept that he was going to die again and again, so he just wanted a little moment of relax with someone who really cares about him, in this case Rem.

If you consider just the anime then they can be classified as just friends but it's actually more complicated than that. Minor web novel spoilers ahead:

In response to your 'biological knowledge' - In any instance, if a human was to have their neck twisted the same way Rem had hers, they would 100% die, so you're correct in your thoughts there. The best way to consider this is to think of it as 'Anime/Manga/Novel Logic' and accept it, though I know that's not an acceptable answer, so I'll attempt to give ...

The answer is: I was mistaken. Crunchyroll made the series sound (to me) like it was ended 2 weeks ago but the series actually played until this week (not sure yet if there is more coming). But, thankfully, I was able to see all the episodes up to an actual conclusion.

Roswaal has ulterior motive. It is not shown in anime adaptation. Yet, anime covers only three first arks of the light novel. His motive is fully explained in ark 4.

Elsa will not play an active role in the current arc. but she will return as one of the major antagonist (like betelgeuse) in the next arc.

In that fight she was overwhelmed and, in fact, was probably going to die because she was too weak to kill all the wolves. She was also hysterical because she had to kill the king wolf who casted a curse on Subaru, and if left to run its course would have killed him a few hours later. So under normal use, she would not have her personality affected, but in ...

Because the "save point" for that part of the story is not the point when Subaru wakes up for the first time, but when he wakes up for the third time. That's also when he first meets Ram and Rem. (His first waking is before the opening in episode 4, while his third is right after the opening.*) *At the start of episode four

Julius challenged Subaru, someone who is clearly below his rank, then during the fight he practically started bullying Subaru, who was obviously greatly inferior to him regarding fighting abilities. Julius is a knight, meaning he should live by the Knights Code of Chivalry, but his actions mentioned above are clearly violating it. The duel had a lot of ...

On the re:zero wiki description of the episode 18, it is said : Listening on, Rem listed on the reasons why she loves him. From the way he brushed her hair, held her hand, and walked together, she gently continued the daily things about him that she adored. As Subaru asked why, Rem told him that listening to him say he hated himself made her want to tell ...

It is because she is somewhat attracted to him (not in romantic means of course). Beatrice to some degree cares about him, otherwise, she would not agree to be in contract with him. That is why she said, "I you want to die, die at a place I cannot see. I don't want to have nightmare." Implicitly she is saying, "Don't let me see you die. I care about you, so ...

She says "I love you". Source from reddit From what's been hinted at in the web novels I think she whispered "I love you" A commenter named "Mitrospeed" on a certain anime site who has a great knowledge of both Light and Web Novel also said the following in his review to episode 20: Subaru makes use of the one thing that makes him somewhat useful ...

While he is a NEET, he does mention in an early episode that he's not a complete shut-in, and does take some effort to keep in shape. That, combined with a slight increase in physical ability that apparently came to him in the new dimension are apparently enough for him to hold his own against Felt in that instance.

There are translations of the scenes if you care to read them yourself. Arc 3: Rem Feigning Her Death Arc 3: Rem’s Proposal/Conversation With Subaru Under the Frugel Tree As to whether they're platonic or not, the scene kind of ends with Subaru leaning in for a kiss before being interrupted.

Rem's attack is added on to Mimi and Hetaro's attack to free Wilhelm. Subaru and Hetaro's conversation is cut. Crusch's speech is moved farther into the battle and an anime ...
