Re:ZERO Season 2 Spoilers

As many would recall, the first season of ‘Re:Zero’ ended with a very positive conclusion. Betelgeuse Romanee-Conti, the Bishop of Sloth, finally lost its battle, while Emilia lived and so did others. Adding to this, Subaru even went out of his comfort zone to tell Emilia how he truly feels. But as optimistic as this ending may seem, it just promises for more darkness for Subaru in the journey that lies ahead. The creators of the show earlier revealed that the first season’s ending was intentionally kept a little from the source. Because if they had stayed loyal to the original manga, most fans of the series would have been left in the dark. Even so, in season 2, the creators won’t be holding themselves back anymore and the anime’s trailer is proof of that.

As seen in the trailer, season 2 will be bloodbath where Subaru will lose almost everyone who’s close to him. Things will get much worse for him before they start getting any better. The tragedies of this season begin with Rem and Crusch riding a wagon to the capital city. While they are at it, Rem relentlessly worries about Subaru and his future. But Crusch gives her some consolation by reminding her of  Lord Roswaal Mathers’ plan. This is the moment when a follower of the Witch shows up and destroys their peaceful journey. Consequently, Crusch ends up losing a lot in this battle, but this is just the beginning.
