A few days ago, we reported on the news that Re:Zero will not only be getting a second season in the spring 2020 season but that the two cour first season would be re-edited into one-hour episodes and aired, starting in January. Today, we return to the world of Re:Zero to show you this dandy new promotional video for the first season which will feature new animation which links the first season to the second.
The nearly three-minute video shows off plenty of action and story sequences while featuring the opening theme song sung by Konomi Suzuki aptly titled “Redo.”
Originally a light novel series written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka, Re: Zero exploded like dynamite when the anime adaptation premiered in April 2016. Featuring animation from studio White Fox and an attention-grabbing 50-minute first episode, fans gravitated in droves towards the many unique characters, particularly the maid twins Rem and Ram. There was more to this series than just cute characters though, as the story was engrossing and generated a metaphorical roller coaster of emotions.
The anime series received a simulcast from Crunchyroll while the light novels have been licensed in English by Yen Press who describes the story as:
Subaru Natsuki was just trying to get to the convenience store but wound up summoned to another world. He encounters the usual things–life-threatening situations, silver haired beauties, cat fairies–you know, normal stuff. All that would be bad enough, but he’s also gained the most inconvenient magical ability of all–time travel, but he’s got to die to use it. How do you repay someone who saved your life when all you can do is die?
No word yet on who might simulcast the season one rebroadcast into other languages, but stay tuned here for more information as the premiere date approaches.
