Learn Japanese with Anime: “Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World” (Advanced Level)


Webmaster Review

92% Outstanding

Stories, characters, and world views are amazing at the highest level. The drawing including the battle scene is high and stable, and the background also contributes to the expression of the world view. Both OP songs and ED songs are normal, but the sound and BGM are superb, great for goose bumps. Too much unique story and character, world view, sound. This animation is definitely a masterpiece.

2. Synopsis

Subaru Natsuki is a hikikomori who does nothing but play games. One night, after visiting a convenience store, he is suddenly summoned to another world. With no sign of who summoned him, he soon befriends a silver-haired half-elf girl who introduces herself as Satella, and her companion Puck. Satella mentions that her insignia was stolen by a thief named Felt. When he and Satella are mysteriously killed, Subaru awakens and discover that he has acquired the ability “Return by Death,” enabling him to reverse time by dying. He greets Satella again, only for her to be offended at being addressed by the name “Satella,” which in fact refers to the “Jealous Witch,” and is considered a taboo. With the help of Reinhard (a knight) in another timeline, Subaru saves “Satella’s” life from the assassin Elsa; she reveals that her real name is Emilia, and as a token of gratitude, Felt returns the insignia to her.

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Anyway, the number and lines of the leading role Subaru are very large. Surprisingly, he only has a lot of vocabulary so he has a lot of difficult words. Since the work genre is fantasy, specific terms appear but not many. However, it will be an obstacle to learning Japanese. Individual characters will not be heard because they speak differently from the present day. It is a very difficult anime for learning Japanese.
