Is it finally time?
At long last, an addition truly worthy of note can be found. As the credits faded away, we’re given one more conversation between Emilia and Subaru. The topic in question was about Rem, although there’s a bit of a problem. Emilia doesn’t recall knowing anyone by that name. Much to Subaru’s horror, he’ll never get that happy ending. Now, this small segment should have led us into season 2 perfectly. If you haven’t heard the news, we won’t get our hands on season 2 till summer due to delays. Nonetheless, this bit of information about Rem shouldn’t be forgotten in the meantime. It’ll likely be repeated since not everyone tuned in for the director’s cut, but it never hurts to be ahead of the curve.
While we normally get to talk about the story at length here, that wasn’t quite possible with the amount of media I needed to work on each week. However, I want to make it clear that there’s an excellent story told thus far. Between the drama, romance, and of course the blood, you’re in for a trip that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Now, there is a barrier of entry to really get sucked into this one. Subaru is not an easy character to digest for everyone. Even I felt it a few times, but it’s a hurdle worth getting over. This is one anime title I wouldn’t pass up due to its story.
When ever White Fox needed to make it count, they nailed it on the head. A handful of beautiful shots can be found through this production. A majority of these may be located when ever death, life, or love is involved. Even with that said, there are some rather weak moments here and there. Prior to this, I’ve never had to make over 100 stitches for a single post. Towards the middle there’s just too much sliding go on. Moreover, they never wasted a single moment. For that alone, this production deserve praise. They squeezed out every possible minute to get in as much content as possible. As such, not everything was going to look perfect.
Among the few titles that I’ve given the thriller tag, this is the only one that truly deserved it. After every episode, I was always ready for another. Even when I knew I shouldn’t, Rezero kept pulling me back in for more. I haven’t gotten to experience this feeling since Cross Ange. Now, prior to watching this show, I’ve read a lot of mixed reports about Rezero. Some people would have you believe this is about Subaru picking the wrong girl, but there’s a lot more going on here. Between the characters and the world at large, there’s hardly ever a dull moment. And we’ve only just seen the start of it all.
Taking on this show was a monumental task. This was 25 episodes of content shoved into 13 for the director’s cut. On top of that, we also covered Memory Snow. It’s a miracle that one even got finished in time. Nonetheless, I’m happy to have covered it all. Even though I may not be able to cover season 2, I don’t regret working on this show one bit. Anyhow, I reward Rezero with an overall score of 8.5. Enjoy the last minute troublesome news!
