Actually kinda perfect. I’ve been wanting to kinda look ahead a little bit and see if I can peak my interest for the part after arc 4. I feel like my favor for the cast as a whole just dropped after that arc
Roswall-From kakkoii to pathetic
Otto-Ok you got cooler (even though the anime did him dirty)
Lasagna Boy-Never really liked him to be honest
I saw some conversation earlier, and I gotta say I feel like subaru and his growth is not at all the center of re:zero for me. To me, the 醍醐味 of re zero is the world building. I always saw subaru as nothing more than a medium for us to experience the world through. The fact that he goes in to this world without knowledge and power really makes it easier to see how much lore and strength all these characters have because of the implications it has on him. To me his suffering is nothing more to me than the embodiment of the cruelty of the world and his happiness is just a manifestation of the kindness of it. To me, his entire character is really nothing but a lens to what I actually care about. The problem for me, though, was in arc 4 I just had a harder time empathizing with him which makes it kinda hard to feel like I’m experiencing the world through him, yknow. It kinda felt like his mental state was lacking consistency compared to before. Maybe the whole thing with echidna clearing his mind for him contributed to that feeling. Not to mention the best girl shortage.
