So I started reading this korean light novel after /a/ recommended it and the art caught my eye. The setting itself is a pretty stock, a guy gets thrown/re-incarnated into a fantasy world after answering this survey in a game which the world is modeled after. The survey decided on the difficulty of the setup, so the protagonist starts on the highest difficulty despite having the rank of a demon lord albeit it’s only place 71. So now he has to overcome these seemingly impossible odds with just his smarts and knowledge he gained from the game. I also like how the protagonist dances around shades of grey when doing business.

So I normally do not blog about series/manga but I’m making an exception on Re:Zero’s part. I got introduced to the web novel few years ago and I was really surprised the light novel ended up getting it’s own anime over Mushoku Tensei and Shield Hero but I guess we have Kadokawa to thank for that. I don’t mind as Re:Zero in my opinion is a breath of fresh air offering the viewer and readers a different protagonist from your usual isekai protagonist with godlike powers.
With the series being as popular as it is, I’m wondering I should invest any money into buying doujinshi about it as so far the scanning track record is rather good though quality varies. The last few episodes of the series should be a bang.
