I get why Rem is best waifu nowAlso, there is something seriously wrong with Betelgeuse, maybe that s why I love him lol.But to be honest, I love everyone so much.. I am completely biased so this is not even a review,like an excuse to rate it with 5 stars. #FREE DOWNLOAD è Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Vol. 1 ê Subaru Natsuki was just trying to get to the convenience store but wound up summoned to another world He encounters the usual things life threatening situations, silver haired beauties, cat fairies you know, normal stuff All that would be bad enough, but he s also gained the most inconvenient magical ability of all time travel, but he s got to die to use it How do you repay someone who saved your life when all you can do is die My first light novel and I loved it It was fun, though incomplete I would give it 5 stars but due to incompleteness, I can t It was not even 1 10 of the whole story, however, it was fun most of the times Plot 4 5 Fantasy, magical worlds are overused, still I love reading this kind of stories The story wasn t deep, as it is only the first volume, but constant adventure was enjoyable Half elves,

Subaru was funny and curious character, not to mention, brave as hell, with a hero complex But saving people isn t that easy, even if you have unusual power Time travelling by death is a cool concept and he used it pretty well, I guess He has so much to learn, for sure Half elf Emilia was so cute and clever, I loved her NeedEmilia Subaru moments Puck was hilarious and cute too Other characters such as Felt , Reinhard and old man Rom were quite good And I think I needof Reinhard, he is such an interesting swordsman Enjoyment 5 5 Loved every moment of it Writing style 3 5 I think there were some problems with translation and also some descriptions were long and unnecessary Still it was easy to read Overall 4 5 stars Need the second volume This was not a good book The premise appeals to genre fans A Japanese layabout is swept away to a fantasy world, encounters beautiful but deadly women, and has to survive by his wits and magical ability to start over again from the same moment every time he dies Unfortunately, the story also featured stilted English, awkward phrasing, tautological terminology, and an uncomfortable lack of polish I give it two stars instead of one because there were great concepts hidden behind the tortured t This was not a good book The premise appeals to genre fans A Japanese layabout is swept away to a fantasy world, encounters beautiful but deadly

tautological terminology, and an uncomfortable lack of polish I give it two stars instead of one because there were great concepts hidden behind the tortured text However, I couldn t initially tell who was at fault Tappei Nagatsuki, the original author, or ZephyrRz, the translator I decided to look up ZephyrRz, found their blog , and discovered they are a college student studying abroad Excellent Japanese knowledge translates anime songs for fun , but inexperienced writing skills The blog is filled with sentence fragments, terse phraseology, and literal translations This is ZephryRz writing style It seems this story was a novice effort for Nagatsuki as well, originally written as a serialized web novel on a novice author website The story was quite fannish, with the main character Natsuki Subaru s name being one consonant away from the author s Subaru would often choose unrealistic moments to pose like an anime character, which was supposed to be comical, but came off as off putting melodrama The battles would be constantly interrupted with lengthy, overly clever dialogue which might appeal to comic book manga fans, but didn t appeal to me Yet the concept of a guy who could fix his mistakes because his day reset every time he died was interesting, like All You Need Is Kill in a fantasy setting There was also depth and backstory to the characters and world that was only hinted at in the story, but did intrigue me Now that I know that the story originated as a web novel, the fact that it started off comical and gained depth and drama as it rolled along makessense now I loved the anime, and hoped to finddepth in the novel, but if you had to choose between the two, I would recommend experiencing this story through the anime It s farpolished I am not sure if I will pick up the second volume As stated above, the translation became smoother towards the end of the novel, and perhaps that was due to Nagatsuki s growing experience If ZephyrRz is the translator for the next few volumes, perhaps experience will make a difference in the readability as well I ve been wanting to read this ever since this was announced I love love love time loop stories.Unfortunately my excitement coupled with my paranoia that there be water bugs in my houseagainmay have caused me to be unable to put the book down, and not in that fun I m so interested in what I m reading way.It was like I was feverish and I m honestly surprised I remember anything What a waste.But what I do remember I mostly liked Time loops are awesome I m crazy biased and there s no

waste.But what I do remember I mostly liked Time loops are awesome I m crazy biased and there s no way I could hate a book that had time loops OP main character and harems have been killing me lately so thank you author for trying to make the main character struggle as a normal person And Subaru actually liked the other male characters, none of that I don t like this handsome guy just cuz Of course there were some issues Like Subaru s personality at first he seemed normal, but then he started saying idiotic things and posing all the time, let s not make him obnoxious or a caricature author While I loved the inclusion of R and the fact he wasn t conceited or smug like his illustrations suggested, I wish he had been better developed The villain felt a little too OP and the way the fight ended was a let down The vol ending was kind of abrupt too.But I enjoyed myself and I want to see where this goes I just wasn t expecting this to feel so light and a bit shallow.I blame my lack of sleep on this, but the picture at the end of the book advertising the anime that showed Subaru surrounded by 5 or 6 girls freaked me out so much I looked up the illustrations of vols 2 8 Based on the illustrations I m left wondering view spoiler Is Emilia not the main girl because he sure is cozy with that maid girl Does that kiss mean side couples happen Please yes There are a lot of cute girls introduced There are not as many but still seem relevant men introduced Are R and F not mentioned again until vol 8 Whats up with the spin off novels Will they be licensed Does he hook up with the maid girl because they sure are together a lot What happens to Emilia And why don t I care No seriously I m weirdly okay with her being gone, or at least not the real love interest, why Now I m just rambling so I m gonna stop hide spoiler Final Thoughts I went into this so positive there was no way I wouldn t like it, plustime loopsBut the main character wasobnoxious than I was expecting, so please mature Subaru SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD READ WITH CAUTION.I m not entirely happy with this book The story was ok, and the premise is actually interesting, but it gets really tiresome to see the main character doing the same mistakes and coming back to the same point, repeating everything at least three times, I was getting desperate.And when the story finally moved forward and it seemed that they would get past the same point, I thought the villain was just too much I know this is a fantasy setting, I know SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD READ WITH CAUTION.I m not entirely happy with this book The

setting, I know fantasy like the back of my hand and to have someone like Elsa on the first book is too much This is the kind of evil person you encounter a bit farther along the road, preferably when you get closer to the main villain The woman is practically invisible It was too much for me, and I didn t like that.I might read another book, because the story seems like it could go in a very interesting way, but I might not get to far if the characters are all like this Subaru is very annoying as a main character, as he is not very bright The girl seems about right for a half elf, and I m very curious about Felt, she might be the only reason for me to keep on reading, because Reinhard also looks like a bit too much, but I don t have enough info on him to judge him just yet Four Stars I love Re Zero so much It was super nice to read this This light novel covers the first arc of the anime I watched the anime before reading this, so I knew what was going on already I actually really enjoyed this to know what was going on in Subaru s head I disliked Subaru as a character from just watching the anime, but after reading the novel I feel quite fond of him.

of the untalented or the lazy RE ZERO STARTING LIFE IN ANOTHER WORLD, whatever the logic of its origin, fails to initiate the whimsical if not blind adventure it claims lies at the heart of all RPG narratives by succumbing to heedless overwriting, redundant storytelling tropes, and decidedly boring and unoriginal story dynamics RE ZERO is not a good book.This is supposed to be a novelization of the intricately structured play style native to RPG gameplay, an homage as well as a betterment of the bifurcated or path based storytelling that drives visual novels, as well as PC and console games The reality is farcoarse RE ZERO is long winded, poorly written, and restlessly dramatic The book reads as if an otaku were narrating aloud the individual motions of individual characters in individual scenes from the most generic anime title ever produced.The plight of Subaru Natsuki, a high school truant, isn t particularly new, interesting, or endearing As he finds himself thrust into a nameless fantastical realm, whose cities are populated with all sorts of magic, animal people hybrids, and , Subaru asserts his role as a hero in the making, faults and all The young man s hawkish if baseless optimism is a well worn trait but here it serves its purpose Subaru encounters only a handful of recurring characters, all of which, according to the novel s structure, have their fates tested by his presence or interference in but one day of their busy lives Felt is an adolescent petty thief Satella is a half elf mage who cannot lie Reinhard is a knight Elsa is a bedeviling sadist and assassin All of whom, to summarize, engage a cat and mouse game of theft, item recovery, murder, and saving grace, respectively.The later revealed irony that many of these characters would have successfully completed their day with little to no harm had Subaru not interfered is played off as a joke thus undermining, unintentionally, it seems, the existence of the entire book.In RE ZERO, Subaru is not a competent individual, a fact that hampers both reader integration as well as the story s interior dynamics The character s irrational behavior certainly doesn t help He starts fights he cannot win he ignores warning signs and imperils others he refuses, ultimately, to look before he leaps in everything he does Deeper into the rabbit hole, the quality of writing does not support its characters, however reluctant, prescient, or inadequate their heroism From the onset, a handful of likely translation miscues mar the book s dependability This includes, among other things, a reference to American currency p 10 , Imperial units of measurement p 14 , and the likely transliteration of the character name Reinhard, which is either obviously wrong or a mark of dubious creativity.Redundant narration is another problem In the first chapter, the word disappear registers in five consecutive paragraphs p 55 , leaving readers with cringe worthy, hyper explanatory phrases, like The green crystal continued to glow with a faint light in Satella s hand as she held it p 56 and Feeling the hard texture of the ground against his face, he realized that he had fallen facedown on the ground p 66.Other times, the writing is so awkward and protracted, it is nearly impossible to read the scene correctly Subaru had tried to get things moving again and change the mood, but Subaru only got turned on by both girls, and failed to get anywhere p 179 Wait What Incidentally, this excerpt has nothing to do with sexual attraction Rather, the scene chronicles Subaru s attempt at starting and maintaining a meaningful conversation without getting sidetracked.To this end, RE ZERO reads a lot like a high schooler s first shot at fanfiction run on sentences and poor editing in protection of characters who vanish and reappear at random, to say nothing of the wildly contrived character interactions, written with annoying precision or, conversely, in total absence of studied presence All too often, the author piles words upon words and ends up with a mass of confusing and crumbling stage directions For example, He couldn t understand himself, just why he was so angry In part because he could not understand it as this emotion rose up inside him, he spit it all out p 181 , and, As Felt s legs started to shake as she ran, she shook her head to try to deny the mess of thoughts running through it p 197 are just plain awful The second of these two samples can be simplified to read Felt was terrified Her thoughts were a mess and her legs shook as she ran Done.Overwriting is the book s largest crime On nearly every page, the reader suffers the blunt edge of overeager metaphors and inelegant imagery, all gallingly shoved to the fore and then turned and twisted, painfully, as if encountering the same reference in as many sentences has a doubling or tripling effect it doesn t.Take, for example, When he opened his eyes, the sun s light was at an angle and shone into them, causing him to squint at the brightness and rub his eyes p 20 Setting aside the misleading modifier of which there are many in this book , the odd causality of the passage recounts a character behavior so instinctive and natural, it seems a total waste to actually narrate Cut out the trash Have the character wake up while rubbing his eyes Done.Similarly, H e rushed to not be left behind this girl who kept continuing on toward her goal p 53 is confusing, regardless of how excruciatingly obvious the writer s intention may be Why not simply say, The girl was stubborn, but Subaru followed anyway And of the longwinded, try, Subaru s brain had already started excreting endorphins and was rejecting the pain, which was greater than any Subaru had felt before p 111 To fix, simply condense He pushed through the pain Also, excrete is the wrong word The author translator clearly should have used secrete in this instance Vagueness is problematic, too An assertion that may feel contradictory, given the author s penchant for pulsing the story with excess verbiage, but by encountering, Subaru felt himself take some intense eardrum damage p 48 , the reader is left to wonder why the author is adhering so strictly to the story s proposed third person formula Lazy writing invariably follows, as with, The night flipped immediately from night to noon p 70 , which bears evidence of a limited vocabulary, as well as odd anatomical references, like breaking his left shoulder p 112 she sliced about 70 percent of the way through Subaru s abdomen with her other hand p 113 , which neglects to mention the character is holding a knife The target was Satella , and the strike was aimed to drive the knife into her chest p 182 and lastly, with too many problems to count, is the increasingly misleading, Felt didn t understand what she was feeling, but because those feelings were in her heart, she kept running about She had felt something in response to Subaru s actions Because of those feelings, her feverishness did not subside, and while she felt like she wanted to scream, Felt kept running p 198.RE ZERO is not well written At all Regarding what blocks of story that are passable, it would behoove the reader to note they are already 130 pages into a 231 page book Indeed, some passages are truly incomprehensible A high pitched sound rang out, and Felt clicked her tongue from Elsa s side p 110 Huh Bad writing is bad writing It is inescapable No story is so primitively authentic as to be above the error of the untalented or the lazy RE ZERO struggles mightily with its vague duplication of storytelling structure better fit for other media, and everything suffers as a result There is nothing redeeming about a story for which the reader must slog through the same scene three or four times over, such that the main character, himself dense and illiterate, can learn the simplest life lessons I m not going to write up a full, super detailed review here Very much like manga, I enjoy writing those for light novels once I ve finished the series, or I ll write a shorter version of one if I DNF the series for whatever reason I DO NOT recommend reading the blurb about this book at all Unfortunately, there are spoilers in the synopsis that take away a huge chunk of the suspense element that the introduction volume tries to create Because I read the snippet prior to jumping in, I found m I m not going to write up a full, super detailed review here Very much like manga, I enjoy writing those for light novels once I ve finished the series, or I ll write a shorter version of one if I DNF the series for whatever reason I DO NOT recommend reading the blurb about this book at all Unfortunately, there are spoilers in the synopsis that take away a huge chunk of the suspense element that the introduction volume tries to create Because I read the snippet prior to jumping in, I found myself feeling impatient throughout the Prologue and the first couple of chapters that s half of the damn book I hated feeling that way, especially because I know that I would have received the suspense much better if I were clueless from the beginning Aside from being pissed about that one aspect since it s not something I can go back and change, I actually liked this quite a lot Is it blow your brains fantastic Good god no But I found the pacing to be enjoyable, overall At occasional points it can feel slightly tedious, especially if you already know what s up, but in the long run I found it fascinating to an extent The characters are goofy in one way or another our protagonist is no fucking exception to this He s your grade A dweeby nerd, which I loved because that s basically me in a nutshell, LOL His awkwardness was a facet I could relate to on a painful level Yet, I m not sure how other people will receive him, especially if you like aserious MC, or aserious tone to your light novels The novel is violent I don t want to provide examples or elaborate because I ain t going to share spoilers, but just know that there is violence in this and quite a bit depending on the situation Coupled with the occasional light hearted humour and personas, it was a much better first volume to a series I was completely unfamiliar with than a vast majority of others that I ve read 3.75 apples outta 5 I would like to apologise to any group members who I was reading this with I got so absorbed in the book that I forgot to stick to our reading schedule 3 I suck, I know I tried to keep the review as simple as possible so as not to ruin it
