We already talked about the Twitter user “Stride Vollachia (@LoremIpsumVerb)“, an inveterate fan of the Conradh na Gaeilge franchise Re: Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: zero – starting life in another world(b) shares information about the right to vote based on opinions directly expressed by the author, Quick Nagatsuki. In a recent update he noted that the author has plans to kill Emilie Subaru in the story (maybe in one of the alternate lines).
Write an update:
- According to Tappei in 2014, he has plans to make a twist where Emilia kills Subaru in the story. I already knew at that time when it would be more interesting to do it, and the natural alternative is Subaru to kill Emilia. (The source is a comment on Shousetsuka ni Narou for fans asking about it.)
In fact, by checking some historical sites on the subject, we can find the original response, which was made sometime between May 24-26, 2014 on the independent service Shutsuka and Narouwhere the web version of the original story is published:
- «Since Subaru had a story development where he killed Emilia, the opposite is also planned. Don’t worry, I know exactly when it will be most interesting to include it».
Summary of Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
Leaving the shop, Subaru Natsuki comes across a bustling city inhabited by humans and demihumans. The city, which uses dragons and carriages for transportation, is clearly not the modern Japan he knows. However, as someone who spends his days engrossed in comics and games, Subaru assumes that he is the main character in this new fantasy world, enjoying supreme magical powers. That’s not the case and things quickly go awry when he runs into a group of thugs. Fortunately, a silver-haired beauty named Satella comes to her rescue, searching for her stolen badge.
In exchange for his kindness, Subaru offers to help him on the quest, which eventually leads them to a loot shop. Assuming the badge was exchanged for money, Subaru enters the store hoping to bargain with the owner for the stolen item. But, to their surprise, it is not the badge that awaits them, but a brutal killer who leads them both to death. But instead of waking up in the afterlife, Subaru is surprised to find himself in the middle of the day, as if he never left the city in the first place. Thus, his life in another life mysteriously begins for the second time.
