Suddenly, a gamer Natsuki Subaru has been summoned to fantasy world on the way back from the convenience store. Along with the major crisis of his life being summoned to another world, and with no sign of the one who summoned him, things turn out to be even worse when he is attacked. But when he is rescued by a mysterious, silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru cooperates with her to return the favor. Right after they ultimately manage to obtain a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and slain by someone. Subaru then awakens in the spot he was summoned and realizes he acquired the ability “Returns by Death” and has turned into a helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time by death. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the destiny of death?
Characters information are listed on Re:Zero Characters List page. The popularity of the characters have made them a popular subject of cosplay.
In this world, the word “witch” only refers to one person, The Jealous Witch, Satella. Long ago, she devoured the six witches who bore the names of the deadly sins, and drained half the world dry. She’s the worst of the worst. It’s said that she was starved for love. It’s said that she doesn’t understand human language. It’s said that her body never withers, weakens, or dies. It’s said that, though she was sealed by the powers of a dragon, a hero, and a sage, they were unable to destroy her flesh. It’s said that her body is that of a half-elf with silver hair.
Originally, members of the demon race had two horns, but twins are born with just one horn each. That’s why twins are detested. And it’s customary to dispose of them immediately after birth. But Rem and Ram were allowed to live. A demon’s horns awaken its demon instincts, allowing it to devour mana, heightening combat ability. But if one is reckless, the recoil will leave one battered.
Lesser spirits are beings that haven’t become spirits yet. They grow over time, and when they gain strength and self-awareness, they become full spirits, like Puck.
Mabeasts are creatures of the witch’s creation. They are enemies of humanity that have magic powers. They live gregariously in the forest.
Flugel’s Tree is a huge tree that stands so tall in the Lifaus Highway, it seems to pierce the clouds. Legend has it that, centuries ago, a wise man named Flugel planted it.
