Re:Zero Arc 3 Interlude III [To Each, Their Oaths](2/6)

Start Reading from Interlude II after Episode 25:

Continued from Part 1/6:

※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※

—By the time Subaru arrived in the Capital, it was already over.

His conversation with Emilia on the road were all gone from his mind.

The girl sitting safely next to him, Subaru should feel content, and relieved, having finally, finally saved her. But in the relentlessly galloping dragon carriage, the only thing on Subaru’s mind was the other girl.

[Who is… Rem?]

Looking confused, she tilted her head as she said this.

He scrambled to look for the smallest hint of a joke, something in her voice, in her expression, hoping against hope the words “Just kidding~” would come out of her mouth…

Whether it’s Petra, or the other kids, no one remembered her.

Having confirmed this fact with everyone on the carriage, Subaru commanded the driver to rush to the Capital with all haste, on his face was the desperate expression of someone riding into death itself.

Impossible. There must be a mistake.

It was all going so well. Everyone was saved, the objective was completed. Despite enduring so much pain and sorrow, taking so many scars within his heart that will never, ever heal, everything worked out in the end.

And still–

[Aha! It’s Subaru-kyun! Impressive, Crusch-sama, you managed to find that capricious little stray!]

On the way to the lounge, seeing the two in the hallway, someone called out to them.

Shaking around in a short dress, liberated from the knight’s garments, a pair of catlike ears twitched. Ferris walked over to them and gently picked up Crusch’s hands.

[Crusch: Ferris-san…]

[Ferris: I’m just Ferris! Ferris and Crusch-sama have known each other for a very long time nyan. If you still add a -san to my name I’m going to die of loneliness and despair nyan]

Holding up Crusch’ hands in one hand, Ferris used the other to nudge Crusch in the shoulder. At such affectionate interaction, Crusch looked like she wasn’t sure what to do with herself, but essentially accepted it as it is, and with a [Sorry], she lowered her head.

[Crusch: To become just like before… Even though it’s not easy, I will try my best, Ferris… Yes. Just Ferris]

[Ferris: It’s alright nyan, because Ferris is always Crusch-sama’s companion, and will always stay by your side. And to be together with such a cute version of Crusch-sama, Ferris will find even more reasons to fall for Crusch-sama nyan, just the thought of that makes Ferris happy nyan!]

Playfully swinging Crusch’s captured hands up and down, Ferris blew her a kiss.

Watching them, the unease growing inside Subaru’s heart became unbearable.

Even though Crusch had changed so drastically, Ferris treated her the same as always, and accepted her as always, it was something beyond what Subaru could understand.

Inside that smile of Ferris’, how much inner struggle must be lying within? Subaru doesn’t know, nonetheless, the thought of it alone filled him with sentiment.

[Ferris: Subaru-kyun, get in the lounge nyan. Emilia-sama and old man Wilhelm are waiting for us]

[Subaru: …A..ah]

His thoughts must have added something into his voice, but Ferris didn’t seem to notice. Saying [This way, Crusch-sama], Ferris led her by the hand.

In the subtle atmosphere between Subaru and Ferris, Crusch tried to hide the uncertainty looming between her brows. She looked at them, one and then the other, and in the end not saying a thing, silently followed behind Ferris’ steps.

Taking a deep breath, Subaru bit his lips, and closed his eyes.

His mind was on edge. His heart felt desolate. In that state he didn’t want to see anyone at all. But it can’t be helped. He will not make excuses to comfort himself.

Because the last thing he’d want to do, is to blame her for his pain.

This way, they made their long-overdue entry into the lounge.

Noticing all eyes were on him, Subaru looked around the room. Other than himself, there were four people present, Emilia, Wilhelm, and one step before him, Crusch and Ferris.

Seeing he must be the last one, Subaru closed the door behind him, and ever-so-naturally sat down next to Emilia.

[Emilia: Subaru…]

[Subaru: No-problem. I’ve calmed down now, Emilia-tan — I, am, alright]

To Emilia’s worried call, Subaru lightheartedly retorted. Only his eyes weren’t looking at her. Rather, he couldn’t see her at all.

If he met Emilia’s eyes now, he would have revealed a despised part of himself. The very thought of it filled him with uncontrollable dread.

[Ferris: Now that everyone is here, let’s begin!]

With the sound of a clap, everyone’s attention landed on Ferris.

It would be impossible for Crusch to direct a meeting in her condition, so that task fell to Ferris.

Roughly surveying everyone present, Ferris walked to the front of the room with an arm in the air.

[Ferris: Since there are no objections nyan, let’s assess our situation]

Thus, with a smile, a meeting from which everyone wanted something completely different, began.

    1. I believe that she was attacked by Gluttony’s Authority, which has the same effect as the White Whale’s. I believe that it wasn’t powerful enough to consume her and the insane amount of mana she held, so she was forgotten to all and left there to die. Only, Subaru’s RbD allows him to remember her no matter the condition, because he can remember a timeline where she wasn’t going forgotten, and therefore overrides Gluttony’s Authority. In fact, at this point, I’m certain that Pride, the sin that everyone is calling Subaru, is the most powerful of the seven sins. On top of that, it seems he has Satella’s favor, when compared to the other sins.


  1. Thank you so much for translating this. I am in shock to see what actually happened and it pains me but i need to know Thank you for your hard work again!

  3. i truly truly love you for this dude. after the end of s1 i was sad bc i’m not able to read the ln/wn in japanese and you saved my life.
    best health and luck to you sir 🙂


  4. Yo, is there a way to support you? Talking of money here ofc, if you keep up with the translation I’m certainly going to start throwing some bills away, I’m dead serious about that.

  5. Do you have a Patreon? PayPal is a bit iffy, but I’d be willing to (regularly) donate for your efforts, should you keep them up at a good pace. You’re providing a very valuable service to fans like us, who will have to wait for season 3. We greatly appreciate it. ❤

    Mention any way we can support you at the top of your next update (3/6). We'll see what we can do. ❤

    1. Aw, thank you! I really am very very flattered when you guys say things like this!
      I made a support translationchicken page now, but no need to feel like you have to give me anything, I do this because I enjoy it and people are enjoying it. So aside from putting up the page I won’t ask for donations in the actual translations.


  6. Sorry, i’m not a native english speaker and i’d just like to know what’s going on in this epilogue :(, i can’t understand it very clearly but did they jump in time from the scene where Rem fights against the archbisops ? Did they forget about her ? Who is this long haired girl ? Thank you!


    1. Hello, friend. Remember a couple of episodes back in the Re:Zero anime where people attacked by the White Whale would be erased from everyone else’s memories? What happened here is that gluttony “ate” not only Rem’s memories but also her soul, leaving her in a comatose condition where nobody knows who she is (and she might not know who she is, like Crusch herself).

      I hope this helped!


  7. Thanks so much man, I just finished episode 25 and was directed here by the kind people over at r/Re_Zero. You are truly doing the Witch’s/God’s work with your translations of the normally unreadable moon symbols. Normally I can’t handle reading LN/WN’s but your translation makes it much more bearable (also that the writer seems to be very talented). I’m looking forward to tonight, you are truly diligent.


  8. Thank you so much for this. I wish I knew japanese to help you around. If by any chance you need a spanish speaking friend. don’t hesitate to contact me.

  9. Thanks for all the great work. It’s thanks to translators like you if we know how the story continues!

    (Sorry for my bad english, but is not my main linguage)


  10. Really happy I found this. I just have one question, does Interlude 1 contain the dialogue between Emilia and Subaru that we saw at the end of episode 25, and does it continue to the “Who is Rem?” line that is in this passage? The only reason I ask is because it may have had more of an impact to read that before reading the situation that happened to Rem. Either way I don’t care because I’m following this and can’t wait to see where the story goes! I hope you stick with this!


  11. Thanks for the translations home-schooling! Your work is much appreciated in my weeb apartment; keep up the good work! :3c


  12. Oh man. It looks like there are a lot of salts incoming.
    I should had known, when the story (episode25) flow far too good, there’s tend to be a lot of bad things incoming.


    Btw, is there any subscribe button? I hope you could notify me whenever there’s new chapter updated =D

  13. I knew when I saw episode 25 something felt off. Happiness in Re:Zero doesn’t exist forever. Thank you very much for translating these for us. P.S Rem’s being forgotten and everything is just cruel but Crusch is even worse off. Damn dude.


  14. You’re like our tour guide for this lightnovel. The many of us that don’t understand how to read japanese will be relying on you now. So I hope the fun you’re able to experience continues to last to the very end. Just know we’re all right behind you on this journey and we will keep supporting and thanking you for giving us a continuation of this series.

    You’re now on my bookmark and goto visit page for Re:Zero. Thank you.

  15. The horror of waiting….i stayed all night just to read the next part but too bad it didnt come out…now it is 9:41 am and i’m going to sleep~ good night sir o7 or good day sir o7


      1. Eh? But when i read your information it says canada and my country is on the other side of the planet making the time day for me night for u lolz how come that is same lolz tho if u are from country near mine it would be a honor for me to be near u sir/ma’am *^* – it is also respectful that u know Japanese cause u know those kanjiz and romajiz ? Seeing them is quite terrifying let alone learning the shape and the voice they make (i tried to learn Japanese – learned katakana and hiragana but the kanjiz were quite the devil and there was alot of them so….ya i kinda got lazy o3o) anyway what i am saying is that u are our new god *^* looking forward for more chaps + dont rush and make the quality bad e.e …even tho i like quantity more…


  16. Everyone was talking about how the anime skipped this part, but it makes sense as to why they did it. No reason to leave on a huge ass cliffhanger when a second season isn’t already greenlit. Anyways thanks for the translations really looking forward to the rest.
    PS. Are you going to be doing anymore of arc 4? Or will you be stopping once you’re done the interlude for arc 3?

    1. I’ll go all the way to the end if you guys stay with me! I’m actually reading as I translate, so if I want to read until Arc 6 I will probably translate until Arc 6.
      As I get better at it I’ll release faster I think.


    1. This is not a legend this is reality this is life this is our new kami and we are the lowly servant who will spread the faith )o)

      All hail for the new kami!
      All hail for Re:Zero
      All hail for the true Author
      All hail for Rem *criz*

      Anyway this is not legend and he is not legend cause legends dont all honestly exist unlike our new god \ o /


  17. I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you holychicken. I will support you once I have enough money to not be broke I swear haha. Keep up the amazing work! You fill the hole in my heart. :’)

  18. for you to translate it in 6 part, you are truly, SLOOOOTHFUUUL DEESUUUU
    jokes aside, i/we really grateful for this. i’m not a native english speaker so i can’t point out any mistakes. can i get some kind of notification each time you update this? can’t wait for the next one


  19. Small nitpicking: I think leaving out the “nyan” where Ferris talks would be more smooth/less awkward to read. Words like “Subaru-kyun” and “nyathing” are still good though! Basically just like the subs for the anime. Good work!

      1. That would work too. It just feels unnatural having to read that next to English words at least when he’s not being playful.


      2. Hi, TheHolyChiechicken. I cant thank you enough for the translations you are making. I just have one question. Is it possible to be notified when a new translation of yours is released? I would love to be notifed (maybe by twitter or facebook page)? Thanks alot

    1. It was the divine protection of ground dragons… the wind is very strong on the perimeters of a dragon cart.

      The first 15 episodes of the Anime was so brilliant… I get the feeling they ran out of animation budget in the last 10 episodes…


  20. Thank you so much for this translation! Following the 25th episode is a rich idea, as it’d take months to translate the 3rd arc and arrive at the epilogue. Quality-wise it’s very enjoyable to read, keep the good work!

  21. Really good segment. Ferris always so positive. I do hope that Ferris and Subaru converse. Waiting for this like I do for manga and stuff of the like 😀 cheers!

    1. Another thing: I read someone saying that Subaru discussed the possibility of having Rem as his second wife with Emilia to which Emilia responded: “Who is Rem?”.
      Did you leave that bit out?


      1. That is very briefly in Interlude I. Subaru started talking about it, embarrassed and stuttering and not making much sense, then Emilia asked “Who is Rem?”.
        Interlude III’s flashback exposition starts at “Who is…Rem?” and what happened afterward.


  22. [Ferris: It’s alright nyan, because Ferris is “alway” Crusch-sama’s companion, and will always stay by your side….

    A slight error but nothing too bad. You had headaches after all.

    Thanks for the translation. Very top-tier.

  25. Really appreciate your work here, and the quality as well! Very smooth reading, like I’m watching ep26 right now. Cant believe White Fox denied us in our meager right to know the cruel and beautiful ending of the story.

  26. When Ferris grabs Cruschs “hands” does that mean she has her arm back on since she is playing with both hands?? I thought when her shoulder was severed it was her whole arm that came off… or did Rem’s healing make it possible for Ferris to connect her severed arm back on? Also… so many timeskips!!

    1. Yes, this is how the Author wrote this chapter. The mystery will be gradually unveiled. It’s pretty cool.
      For Crusch’s hands yes the author makes it clear she now as both her arms back. I haven’t read ahead so I’m still in the dark, but the assumption is Ferris reattached it after Crush had been rescued.


    1. Yes it’s similar to the Whale’s ability to erase memories. Gluttony Ley Batenkaitos ate her memory but not other people’s memory of her.
      Why that is will be explained in future chapters I believe.


  27. Thank you holychicken…Re: Zero has changed my life when I watched it. No words can describe how grateful I am to you and to this anime… 🙂

  29. Hmm I absolutely don’t get why he isn’t killing himself straight away. I mean, it’s not like he could do it anytime and knowingly reset to a certain point( which always ever so happens to be convenient plot points, but that’s another subject) so any second he wastes without resetting he’s endangering the chance of getting back in time. Huuuh….. so annoying, always no logic

  30. God, nice to see Ferris still caring for Crusch despite her nor really remembering anything. His dedication to her is enough to help her at all times even if he’s dying inside.
