Well, I assumed it was not. At the very least, I would assume a large number of people are fine with the way it is, otherwise the series would not be the way it is.
I was only talking about my point of view. In particular, Re:Zero is very unique for me in the sense that, usually, if I hate something major about a book or series, there’s nothing that can really compensate for it. Conversely, if I really love the plot of a series, there’s usually nothing that I would hate beyond groaning once in a while. Yet, Re:Zero manage that perfect balance of enjoyment (from my point of view) and annoyance (still from my point of view), which is a first.
If I stop reading, I lose the fun, but if I keep reading I have to expose myself to the unfun. Both choices are bad, hence my mention of 罰ゲーム. I’m not saying people are not allowed to enjoy the parts I hate I cannot really relate, though.
That being out of the way, Betty
So, my main point is also the second loop, in particular the time when she promised to save him and then went out of her way (and the mansion) to do so. If she was some kind of book programmed robot, she would not have done it in the first place OR she would have always done it. Ergo, she has a lot of leeway (which makes sense, considering the size of the book versus how long she has existed), plus, even if she just follows the book, it doesn’t mean she cannot feel about the stuff that are happening. Like, when she was playing with Puck, was that in the book too? Guess not, but even it was, she obviously felt joy about it anyway.
Anyway, I cannot really relate to him snapping there, but I did relate to Betty going ballistic with her ニンゲンs. Hopefully I’ll see more of her soon.
I’m sorry about that. I have to say though that having a place to get that anger out my system has really helped my enjoyment of the series, and I’m really happy this club exists and for all of you to be here. That being said, if it’s too annoying, feel free to ignore me (or whatever is the name of the forum option to hide a user). I mean it! I think I will still need to release steam in the future, and I don’t think I can promise I’ll be able to keep it down
I’ll try, though.
