Subaru's problem is that he is a whiny, self centered asshole.
>Hurr durr my dad is a cool guy, so now im depressed
That is like the worst reason they could have given for his problems. What about all the japanese people with neglectful dads, alcoholic dads, no dads and so on? No, the worst thing is having a cool, nice and understanding father, who everyone compares you to. This goes beyond being a first world problem. This is just Subaru being an asshole. I wasted so much time watching a show about a guy who's main issue is that he is just a bad person. And I'm not saying that every mc needs to be perfect. I have nothing against mentally unwell mc's, but I draw the line at an mc who is literally just a whiny, selfish dick, who gets the entire woe is me routine, even though he straight up doesn't deserve any pity from anyone in universe or out.

It was less about his dad being cool and more about the expectations being placed on him. A lot of those expectations were from himself. And no, I'm not saying he dealt with his problems the right way, or that he's justified for doing it the wrong way. He fucked up, and the anime isn't trying to hide that. The point of rezero is that despite being an isekai protagonist, he's not allowed to ignore the problems he had in the last world. He still has to face them, and he got the shit beaten out of him by Julius for doing it in the same unhealthy way he tried out in Japan-world. He's supposed to have unlikable aspects to him, and Subaru hates himself for struggling with them more than anyone else.

So what? Normal asian life 101.
I hated him in season 1, and after seeing the reason why he is like that, I hate him even more now. I have seen shitty people turn their life around. Doesn't make all the bad things they did, go away. Also doesn't make me want to interact with them. Same with Subaru.

Why is there no fanart of Subaru's mom?
>>
>>206687170
Because he's an idiot. I don't think people realise how his idiocy is the source of his problems. His responses are those of a retard trying to understand how to put 2+2 together.

>>206686947
His motivations are retarded and unbelievable. His character makes no sense and is inconsistent.
It's not even the fact he's a bad person, it's more that he's too stupid to do anything about it. He loses himself in a puddle of his own making, crying about how he's drowning. Had they given him actual problems to deal with, perhaps even woke ones, like he was raped and abused, then that would have been good enough and would have explained why the fuck he's so obsessed with someone who gave a shit about him to a certain extent, a capable author may have been able to sell it.
But a capable author doesn't get entangled in retarded situations such as these.
The million dollar question about this though is, what if Subaru were a girl? Would that have changed things, with everything else being as it is now?

The core of this issue is that he only started to notice how miserably average he was when he started failing at shit, so he had his ego torn down so he tried building it back up by being a clown and that fell apart when everyone he surrounded himself with ended up growing up, all the while having the expectations in his head that he was supposed to be special and extraordinary like his Dad. Which then led to him making an ass of himself first thing in high school by trying to act as eccentric as he does and being so embarassed he locked himself away from everything.
It's all his fault in the first place but that doesn't make it easy to shake off, even on the topic of the shitty stuff he did not going away that was a pretty heavy point in S1 for him to the point that Rem had to tell him he can still just try to be the person she sees him as going forward, less forgetting the past and more getting over it. Not saying you gotta like him, he's a shitty person in general but not because he was an idiot who put unwarrented pressure on himself and got bitten in the ass by it so hard he refused to face it.

Subaru is supposed to be his own enemy. If he was given a backstory that completely justified his character flaws that would be boring, unrealistic, and contrived. He's supposed to be a main cause for his problems. If he wasn't, it wouldn't make sense for him to hate himself as much as he does. And self-hatred is a major theme of the show. It makes no sense to remove it from his character.
>I don't think people realise how his idiocy is the source of his problems.
That's the whole point though. He's made bad decisions throughout his life and they've compounded and come back to bite him, especially in the first 3 arcs.
>His motivations are retarded and unbelievable. His character makes no sense and is inconsistent.

And it was clearly intentional. It was hilarious how when they're escaping with Otto from the whale, Subaru hugs Rem and doesn't want her to sacrifice herself so he can escape. It was a rather simple and clear action.

Meanwhile in the anime they had to actually animate the seconds of the carriage wheel, the rock and hitting it just so that Rem would conveniently bump into Subaru, resulting in an even less improbable hug. Overall a weird directing decision all over.

By the time he realized his isekai world was a torture porn, he already had a love interest, another on the way, genuine friends, and feels it's his responsibility to save them. Plus, it's not like he has any clue how to switch back to another dimension. The only person who would know how is the WoE, and he can't wake her up without risking the lives of everyone in isekai world.
>>
>>206688373
It's because he had a realization, and the only way he reached that realization was because he was isekai'd and met Emilia and Rem.
Upon reflection he realized how awful he'd been and that he'll probably never be able to make things right with his family, but that he also has to keep moving forward for the people he found that essentially saved him from himself. Hindsight's 20/20 and a MASSIVE bitch

He's an idiot, so you expect him to behave like that an idiot. He's got first world problem that he can't solve that anyone with a brain would have been able to solve. You don't have to be that mature to resolve the issue that the author gave him.
But he keeps resolving stuff that he should never be able to, despite his idiocy. That part makes no sense. Stupidity hampers heavily the ability of someone to come up with a solution, if people are going to argue that he's got mental issues, then it's even worse, because they would not be able to resolve such problems. If it were consistent, we'd still be trying to resolve the 1st loop.

>He's made bad decisions throughout his life and they've compounded and come back to bite him, especially in the first 3 arcs.
They're literal 1st world problems, or even less than that, they're a problem because the author couldn't come up with anything better. There were a million ways to make him face actualy problems, as I said, why were those options not chosen?

It's less that he's an idiot, and more that his dumb decisions he made when he was young have ended up in him being unable to socialize and too embarrassed by the results of that to go to school. He's dumb about social things, but that doesn't necessarily translate to overall intelligence. He still has those social problems throughout the series.
>we'd still be trying to resolve the 1st loop
He didn't resolve the first loop. Reinhardt just happened to show up. Subaru caused that on accident.

Does Subaru have some form of mental handicap? Before you jump to conclusions, I am very serious about this. In episode 4, we saw that Subaru exhibited signs of giving up at the slightest inconvenience and continuing negative behavior despite actively knowing and realizing that behavior was detrimental to him. After he had no friends in middle school, he continued the behavior that lost him his friends in high school. Then, he gave up on going to school instead of modifying his behavior. The above shows that Subaru has obsessive traits that create serious detriments to his daily life. He gives up if he needs to modify his behavior or focusses of obsession (such as his pointing into the air pose). This obsessive trait has shown itself before as well, such as when he immediately became infatuated with Emilia despite knowing nothing about her. For a long time, he'd die for her despite knowing almost nothing about her life or dreams and goals. Just recently, he encountered the witch of Greed who could give him knowledge that could help him or Emilia, but instead said that he didn't want to talk to her because he would rather spend time with Emilia. His tunnel vision when obsessed with something prevents him from actively improving his life or situation. For this reason, I believe Subaru might have some form of Autism combined with OCD, but I'm not a medical expert so I can't be sure. What do you all think?
>>
>>206688743
I don't think he has a mental disability specifically. He just wants to feel special and is a cringelord because of it.

>>
>>206688794
I'll also add that this is, unfortunately, quite common and most of us are guilty to a degree of it at some stage in our lives.
It's just that Subaru took longer than most to become self-aware of his own behavior.
>>
>>206688743
>he continued the behavior that lost him his friends in high school
No, he didn't even do that for the entirety of middle school. He was trying to impress them in dumb ways, and ended up friendless. When he became friendless, he had no one to impress, so he stopped doing it. Everyone in middle school had already formed their opinion of him by then, so he just didn't socialize. In high school he tried to change it up and act normally, but he didn't know how since he spent so long without social interactions. He did modify his behavior, but it had similar results, and he stopped going to school after a while out of embarrassment.
>immediately became infatuated with Emilia
Because he was starved for attention, she's cute, and he was going through the trauma of being mugged in an alternate dimension he knew nothing about.
>didn't want to talk to her
It wasn't adapted well. He left out of fear and because she's been dead for 400 years, so he doesn't think she knows anything useful.
His problems are less about a mental illness and more about his lack of social experience.

Subaru is such a retard, if I were him I'd abuse the shit out of return by death. He's such a crybaby faggot too it's not like dying is that painful, just drop off a cliff head first it's nearly instant, same thing with hanging yourself, it snaps your vertebra and you're instantly a goner, he's just such a spastic, cowardly, retarded, autistic brainlet that he can't do anything right. If I had his power I would fuck the shit out of every woman, he has Rem right fucking there he could fuck her every single day and Emilia too, he's just such a beta cuck that he doesn't have the balls to do it, if I had RbD I would empty my balls on rem and then immediately kills myself to do it again and again and again, I wouldn't even wait, my body would be able to keep going and not need to take a break and I'd be able to continuously keep emptying my balls on rem and Emilia. This is what Subaru should be doing, but he's such a fucking retard that he can't think of any creative ways to use his ability.
>>
>>206688722
Luck shouldn't be what guides the plot, because otherwise it's just convenient writing.
Unless someone here is pulling an Irresponsible Captain Tylor, and it's made clear by Subaru that we're not, then it's just creative bankruptcy.
1st world problems are meant to indicate stupid problems that are a non issue. If you want me to reword it again, then I'll say it:
>Subaru's problems are non issue for anyone with half a brain.
Just because the author tells us he's a hikikomori, doesn't mean he's actually a believable one.
And I'm talking about the reason why he's become the way he did, hikikomori without any substance is not a good reason. He could have become a hikikomori because he was bullied heavily, because the teachers molested him, or because his girlfriend tried to kill him.
But no, he's the way he is because it's self inflicted for his utter lack of emotional intelligence. He's just a retard.
And that would be fine if it were a believable retard. People wouldn't be flocking to him, or falling for him. He wouldn't be surrounded by girls and friends, he'd be completely alone.

>>206688919
>Luck shouldn't be what guides the plot
It's less about luck and more that Reinhardt is the only one strong enough to take out Elsa, and there's pretty much no way for Subaru to know he's that strong without seeing him defeat Elsa first. So, he was doomed from the start to repeat that loop until Reinhardt ended up taking out Elsa one way or another. There's an alternate timeline where he doesn't figure it out until the 88th try. That loop wasn't really about him solving the problem, since he was never able to in the first place. It was about him realizing how powerless he is and introducing characters/worldbuilding, etc.
>hikikomori without any substance
But his case is the main reason hikikomoris exist in Japan. Inability to meet expectations + parents that will support you regardless = hikikomori.

>it snaps your vertebra and you're instantly a goner
not true, you lose consciousness incrementally. if you don't mind despair and feeling out of body until your brain gives out, then you might use that technique.

It is part of the trials. It's actually a pretty good way to introduce backstories of several characters this way because it's simultaneously helps with their character developments.

His story matched up with mine so close it's almost scary, luckily I got over the skipping school part just before final year of school, still never made any friends though.
And I seem to be doing it all over again with not going to college or getting a job
Even the only going out at night part.
It hurt so much I just had to skip past parts.

>>206687926
>It's not even the fact he's a bad person, it's more that he's too stupid to do anything about it. He loses himself in a puddle of his own making, crying about how he's drowning
That's actually quite realistic, although it's rare to see this kind of stuff in anime.
>>
>>206689066
Capable authors do not let obvious hurdles be the first thing they have to face, lest their incompetence will jeopardise the entire story they're going to write.
When you fuck with time, and all that it entails, you need to be really freaking good at crafting the story from the beginning.
You don't create a situation where your character is put to the test when the audience doesn't even know who the hell the MC is. Because then it's easy to fall on convenience as you can then excuse everything at a later date claiming with convenient writing.
It simply shows how the writer is willing to resort to deus ex machinas to resolve plot points that are way above their skill.
Subaru's inconsistent characterisation and its effects in the world created, are simply pieces of evidence for the assertion that it was a result of incompetent writing.
It seems the author had an idea on the objective of the story, but not how to get there. So he forces the narrative to go where he wants as he puts the pieces together haphazardly, uncaring of the impact they have on the world he constructed.
>>
>>206689369
I see you've ignored all my points to the contrary and looped back around to your initial assertions, this time incorporating zero examples from the story.
>obvious hurdles
You mean something Subaru can't overcome? But that's the entire point. He's mostly powerless. Every arc revolves heavily around him getting the right people in place to deal with the problems he can't physically solve.
>audience doesn't even know who the hell the MC is
The very first thing we get is his character background: that he's a hikikomori. We learn more about him as the show progresses, such as his absent social skills and inferiority complex. It's much better to show that off in the midst of the plot than dump it at exposition.
>deus ex machines
Such as?
>inconsistent characterisation
It isn't, but you've ignored all my points regarding that.
>>
>>206688919
His reason for being a hikikomori is the exact reason I am one.
Except mine is for lack of trying, laziness, cynicism, and purposely outcasting my self out of fear instead of trying too hard and ending up outcasted.
Self aware but too paralyzed by fear to change the way I am.
Even writing this my hands are shaking, and writing a resume makes throw up.
Though I have no problem talking to people irl since I know I will never get close to them or likely see them again.
>>
You don't need to be a NEET to empathize with Subaru here. This episode hit me hard for the same reason that Mujun Rasen made me cry like a little bitch: I love my parents very much and I'm afraid to lose them.
>>
>>206689209
That's an in-universe explanation. What about the author's intentions?
>>
>>206689594
That's the only part I didn't connect with. I never loved my parents despite them loving me and me having no reason not to love them.

>>206689618
Giving readers backstory while also developing the character.
>>
>>206689594
You don't have to relate to a character to empathize with them in the first place.
>>206689618
It was the first available opportunity to give a recap of his character flaws and progress towards correcting them. The first trial ties into the backstory and development of other characters later on, so he killed two birds with one stone by showing off Subaru's backstory at the same time.
>>
>>206689657
Baka, the question is "why give Subaru's backstory at this exact point of the story".

Man its painful reading the posts of more normal anons who didn't go through exactly what Subaru did and end up a hikikimori like me talk about how ridiculous and unrealistic it is.
His story is so relatable it makes me sick. I wish I had had this when I was in school. I hope it saves some people from ending up like me
The level of fear is insane. Did the author also go through this likej me how does he know?
>>
>>206691953
honestly? dont mean to be rude, but i think people who hates him on personal level seem able to relate to him in term of everything and feel envy toward him since even if he's sperging a lot he does act over a conviction for one girl. that takes ball and a bit unrealistic at the same time when girl like rem exist for him.
TL;DR he's a loser but at the same time he want and can do something.

If you've still got "why" questions you might benefit from a therapist.
They're great at answering the W questions, but they're worthless and potentially counterproductive if answering the W questions isn't the cure. Self help is probably more effective if you're the latter, or if you're a retarded gremlin like me, suicide or stalling are the only options.
Don't pay attention to that last possibility, the first two only really work if you believe they're going to work

Gotta love how some of you act like Subaru is some realistic depiction of a depressed hikki. Meanwhile Subaru is doing good old anime hero things, saving the day, getting waifus and basically being a self insert character for losers who wish they could be heroes in another world. Subaru is inconsistent, because he is at one time a total failure of a human being, and then suddenly he is too good to be true. Some fucking consistency would be nice. But the hack author wants to have his cake and eat it too.

not that guy, but you can either
1.self help, slowly ofc, hell it might takes a year or two. you can do this by literally reviewing your life and consult with either yourself or your family about it (where's wrong, where's right, where's if you do this etc etc). Then you think about the future.

How could he not save the day and impress girls when he has RbD? He's been allowed to succeed because he can redo his mistakes, and other people only see the successful loops in the end, so they can't help but judge him as a successful person. Subaru very much has and faces his character flaws despite being an isekai MC. You act as if he instantly changed into a hero, but his character development is still ongoing and has been progressing little by little each arc.

We don't know whether or not he was after that. WoE was after Subaru primarily, so it's entirely possible that Rei was just in a part of the tower she was ignoring. Rei isn't a pushover either. He's much more mobile that Subaru, and could likely avoid her for at least a short period of time just like Patrasche did.

Getting Isekai'd is the perfect chance to turn yourself around tho, in our world we have some kind a safespace like your family's home or your own home. in there it either do or die.

then you have to do it yourself, i honestly believe that if you can either look back at your life alone, then you can somehow able to overcome you fear of talking to your parents. either way it seem the biggest hurdle you have to overcome first and might be the key of your "hikki" problem is the need of overcoming that wall.

Thank you anon, I am so confused after reading Chapter 6. A few more questions:

1. What did Shaula mean by saying "3" when she met Subaru?

2. What does the birds mean? They started to appear "about a year ago", so the birds are related to Subaru's presence in this world?

3. What did that 7 gems at the shrine of WoE mean? Why did only 4/7 of them glow?

4. The above loop is the most confusing to me. Why did the new Subaru lose his consciousness so many times in between? Who controlled his body during these times? What did he do when he lose his consciousness? Who killed his teammates? What role did Beatrice and Emilia play in this loop?
>>

You're hating yourself if you keep watching the anime. I don't know what keeps you from dropping the show, Roswaal and Ram or the others, most likely and the world-building is mostly adequate but that isn't what this story is about; it's a love story. It's unhealthy for you to keep up because bad news, it's a whole lot more about Subaru this and that from here on out. And you're in 4chan on top of that, unless you got a good bad life. Subaru's dumbassery is going to be the end of you if you didn't already know about that. Just tell your friend you really, really hate this show. But do enjoy continuing watching with him.

It's kind of confusing to call it chapter 6. Ik you mean arc 6 but it could cause confusion in the future.

>1
Probably the number of Witch Factors/Keys he had at the time.
>2
Hasn't been explained yet.
>3
Same thing Shaula was talking about. Witch Factors/Keys.
>4
His body was being taken over by the Rui clone to try and separate the amnesiac Subaru's personality from that of the OG Subaru. The first time he lost consciousness, he talked to Meili in the library, but he doesn't have any prior memories so he doesn't know that happened until he sees Meili's memories. Second time he murdered Meili. Third time he broke out of the cage. Gluttony and Shaula presumably killed his teammates. Beatrice and Emilia probably just died in a different room or on another floor.

I read the WN in another language so I am not sure about the precise terms. Sorry for that.

Thank you for answering the first two questions, just want to make sure:

3. So the number of factors increased from 3 to 4 because Subaru was invaded by Glutonny?

4. This is pretty reasonable, and what confuses me the most is what happened in the "third" time he "died in the tower". In this loop, Subaru lost consciousness for the first time in the green room, but after that he still stayed in the room. The second time was that he fell into a hole in the desert, he woke up with his food and water consumed. The third time was between he reached the shrine of WoE and returned to the tower. In this loop things are so wild that I barely understand 50% of them.

What reductionism? He was handed everything in the old world and he was a piece of shit, now he’s in a new world where he’s been handed immortality and the ability to time travel and tailor his choices to perfection and he’s still a pathetic whiny little bitch.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the times he got possessed by Gluttony.
Subaru lost consciousness for the first time in the green room
I'm not sure what you're referring to by this. You mean when he woke up without his memories?
>fell into a hole in the desert, he woke up with his food and water consumed
He fell into the tunnel created by the earthworm. His food and water were not consumed; the containers were opened on accident during his fall so the spilled out.
>reached the shrine of WoE and returned to the tower
We don't know how he got back to the tower at this point. Perhaps he got possessed by Gluttony again.
>>
>>206693247
>came second place in some race
It was more than just that. He was average in every way and didn't want to accept it. You've also missed the entire point of his character, both in this episode and in the first season, if you think his actions were supposed to come across as justified. It's simply his backstory.
>>206693247
>handed everything in the old world and he was a piece of shit
Yeah, he fucked up and became a hikikomori with a bunch of character flaws.
>he's been handed immortality and the ability to time travel
He's also the primary victim of a psychological horror/torture porn story. Power can't always solve emotional problems, especially if you ignore the context entirely.

Yes. The lesson Subaru has learnt from revisiting his past was to... be himself and give it his all because he wants to, not to meet someone's expectations? How is it relevant to what's going on right now in the plot? People are expecting things from Emilia, not him.

>>
>>206693592
>People are expecting things from Emilia, not him.
Most people weren't expecting much from him in the first 3 arcs either.
>>
>>206693630
Subaru doesn't give a fuck about Roswaal, and Rem is a special case. He can't let her down both for her sake and for his own. The lesson is inapplicable here.
>>
>>206685958
The series staff knew what they were doing. Just put on some sad music, make the characters speak melancholy explaining their plight verbally, and then have tears be shed.
Easy to get 90% of people to cry off of that alone. Emotional buildup? Not necessary.

>>206692578
>If you love your family and have a healthy relationship with them you will like this episode.
The problem is that I DO love my family and have a healthy relationship with them, and my issue is with the fact that Subaru's parents are used to cheap emotional shlock, and only that.

If anything I've found the people who like that episode don't have healthy relationships with their family, because whenever I criticize the fact that Subaru's parents were never mentioned before by Subaru before the author decided he wanted a quick, cheap melodramatic episode, defenders start REEEing saying they wouldn't think of their family either.
If I were isekai'd one of the first few things on my mind would be my family and how they're going to deal with me suddenly being gone, over time I would grow homesick. I empathized with Subaru in the episode, I just felt annoyed because it felt like easy emotional manipulation rather than an honest to god earned emotional payoff.

No, it's fine for him to try and meet other people's expectations, but he needs to be aware that there are people who will love him even if he fails to do so. Therefore, he should press forward for himself and for others. It's a recap of the lesson he already learned from Rem in episode 18, which is why he's able to beat the trial so easily: he's already confronted the underlying issues from his past.
>Subaru doesn't give a fuck about Roswaal
Roswaal is manipulating him to do his bidding whether he wants to or not.
>>
>>206693703
But Subaru didn't have a healthy relationship with his parents. He was pissed at his mom for no real reason when he left for the convenience store and got isekai'd. He fucked up at life and became a hikikomori with tons of character flaws. It makes sense for him to want to escape that. If anything you've proved the point that he wouldn't think of his family much.

Not exactly. I love my mom but my dad was always a alcoholic fuck and my first memory of him was him wanting to kill me with a headbutt. This episode felt like my real life almost. Was an athletic kid, then became the clown of the class but eventually became the bullied kid(even teachers were pretending they didn't see it). So bullied I flunked one year for not showing in school for months. I didn't want anyone to kick me out but going to school in those years to me was like going to hell. I didn't want to get hated like Subaru though I wanted someone to understand something that was really selfish and stupid of me but I couldn't do anything about. My father was never there for me, in these or any other situations. Yet I loved this episode, because instead of kicking your own blood out of the house you try to understand his pain and you love him/her no matter what. Now the problem is, those years, while behind me, are still part of who I am. I could've gotten a girlfriend and be married now, even have kids. I ended up just being a nerd leaving out of a low income without any big dreams. But you know what? I gained something from all this and little by little I became less afraid of people and what they think, despite having the mental issues I have, I no longer use them as an excuse, I no longer try to hide them. As you mature/get older you realize most people don't really care about what you do or don't, it's all in your head, you are your worst enemy, not the bullies, not the co-workers. Once you overcome the fear, you can be who you are without feeling guilty about it. That's what Subaru did in this episode, he felt guilty, he felt fear, but in the end, there's always gonna be someone that accept you for what you are and his parents were always there for him.

I was also in the same boat with enabler parents being lost for years. Talking to them is quite frankly not the most useful thing in the world if they're anything like my parents.

First try to set up some routines. The first step to having a normal life is to have things to do and look forward to in the week. Not just anime but shit like working out, cleaning your own shit, any kind of creative hobby.
Pick one thing and set a specific time for it each week and it'll help gauge where you're at and provide an outlet through actual productive activity.

His dad was cool and he wanted to be like him, but he wasn't able to and therefore classified himself as a failure. Is that so hard to understand? He even knew it was a stupid reason and wanted his parents to berate him, but they never did which just made him feel guilty.

It feels shitty at first, but strangely it hits a little bit too much about childhood. It represents when your family is held in high regards and you are expected to follow suit. Evem if he wanted to follow something different, Subaru ended following what society expected and after seeing he was failing to do so, crumbled slowly. You can notice this when the senior talks to his dad and notices Subaru, compares them and makes a comment which affects Subaru. It's that he can't let go of that expectation. He can't follow his own path, he's chained to it.

The worst part is because of that, he ended up creating dependency on his parents (being a shutin) and seeing he has trailed himself through the other world, you can see he STILL can't let go, but wants to follow his own path no matter how much it hurts..... Shit I'm crying again...

The gist I'm getting is:
1. Rui has no physical body. Her being is made entirely of just her soul and witch factor.
2. She can't steal RbD with her authority like the Gluttonies usually do because she figures RbD itself is an authority, not attached to Subaru's name or soul. She decides to acquire RbD by becoming Subaru.
3. She splits herself in two, like the White Whale or Rabbit. She creates the second Rui by splitting off half of her witch factor. So the second Rui is entirely witch factor.
4. Subaru is a receptacle for witch factors. Factor Rui slips inside Subaru and eats him from inside out while other Rui eats him from outside in. She is apparently able to eat his memories now so he's an amnesic vessel.
5. Rui adds herself to witch factor (ルイが自ら魔女因子に加わる。) but idk what this actually means -- I suppose it's Factor Rui acquiring RbD.
6. Then there's some other crap that seems to imply Not-Factor-Rui is waiting for Factor-Rui/Subaru-Rui to return with a perfect life so she can eat it.

No clue. Though, if Factor-Rui came back with the perfect life, and Not-Factor-Rui got to eat it, isn't that mission accomplished? She wouldn't need RbD anymore, by her logic. It all appears to be a means to an end for her to enjoy the taste of this 'perfect' life she's envisioning.

It doesn't outright state that (she won't want/need rbd after Factor-Rui returns with the perfect life) anywhere but that's the message I'm seeing implied. Maybe she hasn't thought about it either. Rather, as long as she gets to vicariously experience things by eating Factor-Rui's memories, she doesn't need to personally be RbD'ing. Or maybe she just plain can't because of her soul being present in Not-Factor-Rui?

This might all be a moot point though after the merging of the Subarus. Factor-Rui might not have RbD anymore.

Maybe. Emilia didn't like him at that point, though. I don't know about the second season, but that was just after he had his freakout scene with her. It was also just bad writing to lead the viewer by the nose along the "Rem route" where Subaru had otherwise been nice to her and treated her advances tenderly, and then callously stab you in the heart with a one-line rejection/dismissal that came out of literal nowhere.

Thank you so much. This story is much better than the shipfaggotory I expected.

As to my understanding, the two Ruis are eating each other and experiencing the deaths of Subaru right? Do they have any chance of adapting to the burden of this, or just suffer endlessly because they don't understand the power of love and friendship?

Also, the very first time Rui tried to eat Subaru's memories, Subaru was not affected right? Only after Rui tried another method, Subaru suffered from amnesia. Just curious, did Rui gain access to Subaru's memories of "Japan/the Earth" or just memories of "another world" in her first try?

Wait, he was only a NEET for three months after having been a normie for the rest of his adolescence?
How old is Subaru even? I thought he was 18? Shouldn't he have had 3 years of NEEThood considering he starting to socially withdraw in high school?

You know what kenichi had that all those other overpowered mother fuckers don't? Satisfaction in life, even with that failure of a son he has he still loves the life he was given.

He's 18 in the 3rd year of highschool but he wasn't held back meaning he had enough attendance and good enough grades to progress every year. It's mentioned in the episode how he'd take one day off every week and then it'd turn into two days per week and escalating but it's only in his 3rd year that he stops going, and yes it's only for three months that he's an actual NEET. Before that he just skips school occasionally

Factor-Rui is traumatized from dying to RbD so much and now fears death, yeah. Factor-Rui now conceives Not-Factor-Rui eating her memories as Factor-Rui dying, so she's fighting to not get eaten. It's unclear if NFRui actually manages to eat her before the scene cuts away.

I'm not sure NFRui will get traumatized in the same way that FRui was by these death memories, since she didn't respond adversely to Suabru's original death memories. The narration also says the fight won't have any winners, though, but idk if that means "even if NFRui eats FRui she'll be traumatized" or "they're locked in a deathmatch forever"

>The very first time Rui tried to eat Subaru's memories, Subaru was not affected right?
Correct. Rui could read his memories normally but he could also remember everything she'd eaten.

>Did Rui gain access to Subaru's memories of "Japan/the Earth" or just memories of "another world" in her first try?
She seems to have memories of Earth since there's a reference to 'unknown scenery' he knows. She definitely knows he's from somewhere else.

>>206699654
I won't say she has the most innocent outfit.

I'm not even keeping up with Oregairu anymore, season 2 already lost the appeal of what made season 1 fun to me, and AFAIK season 3 is more of the dramatic crying and romance that I didn't really like about season 2 except now we know how it ends so what's the point?

Isn't that the fucking point? People who lose motivation or are depressed do so over shit you might consider trivial, but to that other person it's something way more important. In this case, he wanted to be someone who's as well liked and reliable as his dad, seeing his attempts at emulating that likeness fail miserably, and instead get the opposite made him feel like he was useless.
>>
>>206699892
Well yeah. But being a hero isn't anything to do with romance. Subaru is simply awkward about it because he has never had someone confess to him before, not because he genuinely loves Rem that way. That is why a different outcome of that end exists.
>>
>>206699925
just because your main character acts like a retard means you can excuse the shit writing.

Autosaves and (lack of) outgoing clownish personality could lead to some pretty interesting bad ends. But otherwise given his power getting somewhere half decent is a matter of patience.

Something that's just occurred is that the Ruis merge into one the way the Subarus did, so NFRui does get traumatized, and if she still had the RbD factor I guess she'd just separate herself from it first/it'd fuck off from her once she stops being Subaru.

There was never a mention of killing, she just "consumed", there might be an utopia on her side, while the rest of the world where she was "stopped" remains a shithole.
Objectively she is a hero - killed all those disaster witches and tried to make so the normal people can live peacefully. Too bad faggots with superpowers didn't want to be parted with said powers so they needed to "stop" her and make up filthy propaganda that she is "bad".

I get this is bait for you /v/ermin tier waifuwarrers, but to make an actually informed point for anybody lurking the thread; it's less that 'other girls wearing Emelias dresswear doesnt work' and more 'the dresswork doesnt work on other girls'. It's basic color matching; namely with the eyes and hair (which is obviously much more prominent in anime styles).
It's basic marketing 101; it's why Ronald McDonald wears Red and Yellow.

Did....did you just baitpost to respond to the response with a response to a bait post earlier in the thread? If that was deliberate, I applaud you anon

>>“I want you to say…that you…love me.”
>>Tears welling up forced Subaru’s eyes open as he shook his head side to side. Then, he drew his face close to hers and told her:
>>“I love you.”
>>“……”
>>“I really love you. Of course I do… I can’t…manage without you.”
>>They were words from his heart of hearts.
>>Subaru poured all his unembellished true feelings into the words he spoke that instant.
>>He couldn’t have made it that far without her. He couldn’t live without her.

You mean like shotting tea out of her bellybutton?
>>
>>206702437
How about down from her chest to her solar plexus region? Navels are disgusting
>>
>>206702430
someday when I have enough time to waste, I will read one textwall cope. I swear
>>
>>206702430
Yeah, something in the moment without anything genuine.

Why does Subaru know so much about astronomy?

Such autism will help him clears Arc 6, hopefully
>>
>>206702622
Mixing it up with someone showing him love. Subaru doesn't actually love anyone, anon. It's all him mistakenly reciprocating it.
>>
>>206702600
Wait that's the novel? You mean you post the novels to prove your points every time some fag talks shit about your waifu? Kek, I respect the autism
>>
>>206702587
His name is related to them so he got curious.
>>
>>206702675
it's a reflex from so many years of people saying remfags have no proof that subaru actually cares about the potato, their fanfic isn't really proof but they seem to think it is.
>>
>>206702669
Call me Emilia, but I don’t understand what the fuck you just said with that word salad sorry.
>>
>>206702801
As in, Subaru is only responding that way because someone is showing him love. That's how he works, he doesn't have genuine feelings for any one at that point. Fanfic is fanfic.
>>
and here I though we'd have a thread end without Remfag textwalls. Jokes on me

>If we're going back to the topic of who Subaru's giving his thanks to, there is unmistakably no one who saved Subaru as much as Rem.
>Her intense love and devotion mended Subaru's broken spirit, and restored his will to stand up and challenge fate.
>If she hadn't been there then, Subaru would not be standing here now. Without her presence, he never would have escaped from the hell called surrender.
>When Subaru was most in suffering, in pain, and hopeless, Rem was the one who stood with him and supported him.
>Was it truly so strange that Subaru felt intense love for this girl?

Is the WN AND LN is now fanfiction? I love the lengths you guys go to cope, soon every Rem scene in the anime will now be “forced Rem shilling” too.

Dude you have a problem
Also, Emilia>Rem

but it is, it's just there to please the remfags, otherwise Rem wouldn't even get mentioned in Emilia's arc.
>>
>>206702829
Never, ever.

>>206702827
Read it one more time, you seem to be replacing these words with cope
>>They were words from his heart of hearts.
>>Subaru poured all his unembellished true feelings into the words he spoke that instant
>>
>>206702936
This is the kinda bait Remfags will willing bite. Kek

>>206702907
I wonder who shows up as the Witch of Lust, an objective peak into Subaru’s heart
>>
>>206702960
>true feelings
Yeah, no. It's a lie. It's not from the bottom of the heart.

Not gonna lie but I cried when he told his father that he'll never make it up to them
>>
>>206703065
Repeating it won't change your misunderstanding of Subaru.

And funny!
