Re:ZERO-Starting Life in Another World- A non-stereotypical Isekai Refreshment

Re:ZERO-Starting Life in Another World- break the over powered protagonist stereotype with Isekai anime and approached the genre in a whole new light.


Re:ZERO-Starting Life in Another World aka. Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu start with the grieving utterance of Subaru Natsuki who failed to save someone. Protagonist Subaru Natsuki, an ordinary high schooler is summoned to an alternate medieval world of magic and demihumans, by Witch of Envy; The malefactor entity in the story.

Subaru is lost and extremely happy to leave his vegetate life behind for this mesmerising fantasyland; in hope of inheritance of clichéd magical power to save the world. Unaware of his fate, he is rescued by Emilia; a beautiful, silver-haired girl, before being mugged by delinquents and decided to return the favour. After being tangled with Emilia the story develops with course of favours and vice versa.

Re:ZERO works on the idea of hit and trial. Subaru soon realised the ability granted by the Witch of Envy which enables Subaru to live again from the ashes. However, the memory of previous life remains to no one but him.


Isekai as a genre have the potential to create your dream fantasies into a real live world. It enables the creator to delve into the world beyond logic while keeping the experience intact to best. However, the mushrooming of Isekai has certainly decreased the quantity of good Isekai.  Re:ZERO-Starting Life in Another World- break these stereotype with Isekai anime and approached the genre in a whole new light. The portrayal of unapt Subaru and vibrant characters cast gives a fresh feel to the series. The anime also displayed adequate screen-time for character development of side characters which enhance the viewing experience.  The series is indulging and doesn’t rush at all. Despite using hit and trail Re:Zero consistently explore the story in a new light, Implementing new scenes and animation.
