Synopsis for Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
Leaving the store, 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 a protagonist in this new fantasy world, harnessing supreme magical powers. Unfortunately for him, it’s not like that and things quickly go awry when he runs into a group of thugs. Fortunately, a silver-haired beauty named Satella comes to his rescue as she searches for his stolen insignia.
In exchange for his kindness, Subaru offers to help him on the quest, which eventually leads them to a loot shop. Assuming that the badge was exchanged for money, Subaru enters the store hoping to bargain with the owner about the stolen item. However, to his surprise, what awaits them is not the badge, but a brutal killer who leads them both to their deaths. But instead of waking up in the afterlife, Subaru is surprised to find himself alone in the middle of the day, as if he never left the city in the first place. Thus, his life in another world mysteriously begins for the second time.
