Re:Zero Arc 3 Interlude III [To Each, Their Oaths](5/6)

Start Reading from Interlude II after Episode 25:

Continued from Part 4/6:

※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※

[Subaru: Thank you for back there, Wilhelm-san]

After the meeting in the lounge, Subaru called out to Wilhelm outside the Karsten Mansion. Stopping in his steps, Wilhelm turned to Subaru.

[Wilhelm: Not at all. I was of no help, I’m ashamed of how deficient I am. Above all, I was unable to assist you today]

[Subaru: Don’t say that, without Wilhelm-san, we wouldn’t have defeated the White Whale. And afterward I was able to entrust Emilia and the villagers to you. I am really really grateful!]

These were unpackaged, genuine words of gratitude. But, even this could not lift the gloom from Wilhelm’s face.

Never forgetting a past kindness, always carrying the pain of others within himself. This man… isn’t he too good-natured for his own good?  Subaru smiled at the thought.

[Subaru: Even though the situation hasn’t settled yet, have you had a chance to visit your wife’s grave? Even though it’s no consolation, but at least you avenged…]

[Wilhelm: —!]

At Subaru’s words, Wilhelm’s face suddenly collapsed with deep emotion.

Seeing those intertwined waves of grief and sentiment, Subaru didn’t know what to do. Noticing Subaru’s hesitation, Wilhelm bowed deeply.

[Wilhelm: Subaru-dono, I must apologize!]

[Subaru: Wait, don’t be like this,  you have nothing to be sorry about, I should be thanking you right now…]

[Wilhelm: No, that is not true. The words I spoke in the meeting were not out of genuine desire to be your ally. It was my vain, selfish sentiment that made me support the Alliance. For concealing my guilt, I am deeply ashamed]

Not understanding Wilhelm’s words, Subaru furrowed his brows.

Seeing this, Wilhelm took off his overcoat, and rolled up his left sleeve – revealing a bandaged wound around his left shoulder. Through the outer cloth one could see that the inner layers are wet with blood.

[Subaru: Does it hurt? You should get Ferris to look at that]

[Wilhelm: This wound cannot be healed. It was dealt by an opponent who possessed the Divine Protection of “Death God”]

[Subaru: Can’t be healed? …Then, Wilhelm-san!]

What an unhealable wound leads to, even Subaru knows this.

Normally, if bleeding can’t be stopped, it’s like a timer being set on one’s life. But unlike Subaru, who looked full of apprehension, Wilhelm shook his head calmly.

[Wilhelm: My life is not in danger right now]

[Subaru: How can that be? That wound… what kind of attack…]

[Wilhelm: I did not receive this wound today or yesterday. It was from a long time ago, and it recently re-opened. But, for me right now, the wound is too large]

Listening to Wilhelm’s quiet words, Subaru’s small body quivered and contracted. Not knowing why he is having this reaction, even the roots of his teeth felt like they didn’t fit in his jaw. All this came from the “Sword Demon” in front of him, an incredible aura that could freeze ones liver solid.

Continuing in his calm, gentle voice

[Wilhelm: The effects of a Divine Protection becomes stronger, when the owner of the Divine Protection is near. When “Death God”‘s owner approaches, the wounds they inflicted will open]

[Subaru: Then that means… the person who inflicted your wound long ago… is near…]

[Wilhelm: The one who wounded my left shoulder… Is the Previous-Generation Sword Saint]

Listening to Wilhelm, Subaru’s breathing stopped.

Gazing into Wilhelm’s eyes, he saw the frozen glitters of emotion.

[Wilhelm: Thearesia van Astrea. The wound dealt by my wife has re-opened. In order to find out why, I must continue to pursue the Witch Cult…]

  1. And I thought the last chapter had a lot of intrigue in it.. I really can’t wait to see where this bit of plot goes! I always loved Wilhelm as a character in the anime, and it really seemed like his whole revenge bit was the only storyline he would get, but he is just full of surprises, isn’t he? Thank you for translating this chapter!

  2. As everyone has said, thank-you very much for the translation. You are very passionate about this project, and it’s really awesome to have this exist. I was really sad that I wouldn’t have re zero content for years(since the English LNs are behind the anime)! I’ll be eagerly looking forward to your work.

    in between Thearesia is alive and is probably one of the wtiches , that would be mind blown lol .
    Or it has something to do with the Archebisps if i have to guess probably Ley Bateinkatos (authority of greed).

    Btw is it true what people said that we will only see the God Regulus Corneas in Arc 5 ?

    1. Possibly, Arc 4 is very focused on Subaru, Emilia, Beatrice, and Roswaal I believe. I’m reading only as far as you have(I read my own translations…), so I don’t know except from some spoilers I saw long ago.


    1. It will be another emotional one I hope! Since it’s an important segment I think I’ll revise it again tomorrow morning to make sure it’s as good as it can be. (My revising sucks at night)


  4. Chicken man it’s getting to that point where your going to see your translations not only kick off with a huge fan base but also, a lot of comments with theories and thanks, It’s going to feel great watching something you started kick off so grand! Hope you show your feedback on this. Also “KEEP IT UP.”

  5. Thanks for the TL again. Really can’t wait for the last part then Arc 4. It’s gonna be a long ride. I’m really stoked for particular scenes in Arc 4.

    It’s really so much better when the dialogues are in place rather than just being a general summary. By the way, there seems to be a lot of translators doing different parts right now have you ever considered working with someone?

    1. For me, I think it’s more about the experience of reading through a good narrative, not just getting to see what happens in the plot. If different translators translate separate chapters the tone of the work will change a lot, as if the novel is written by different authors.

      I personally don’t want to read that way. Right now I’m reading my own translations(I didn’t read ahead, so what you read is what I read) and I’m deeply enjoying the story as I translate, if a chapter ahead is already translated by someone else, I might still choose to translate it again if only for myself to read.
      Everyone is free to translate what they want to, I’m just enjoying the consistency of a continuous narrative.

      That’s my thoughts at the moment 🙂
      If I am only a translator perhaps I would do it like that, but I am as much a reader as a translator, so I want to read a continuous, consistent, and beautiful story, even if it’s a bit slower.


  6. This author surprises me more and more with his developments to the plot, but for this to be so effective, it must be your fantastic translation that makes it all possible. Thank you so much for translating this.

  8. I’m kind of scared of what might come out with Puck and Subaru. But as always a lovely job!
    Is because of the wound re-opening that Wilhelm has hope for the Crusch’s memories to come back? Is that hope for Rem-rin? :0

  9. It’s really nice to see what Wilhem says. He always talks about something meaningful

    And I see the Wilhem’s wound as some sort of symbolism, the impact of Thereasia on his life would last forever. WIlhem being guilty and all

  11. Meliodasgreyman love the name coming from two great shows that should be continued. Art thou Chicken, I just started watching the show yesterday and finished episode 25 tonight on YouTube, so to learn this show is new and there is someone translating the text as we speak is more than awesome! Can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed to learn I have to wait for more from a show, so since reading is so much greater thanks for posing the question of the chicken and the egg 😉 lol>>> love ya

  17. I can’t imagine what the opening of his wound means, is it possible that his beloved is still alive? That would be an amazing twist.


  18. Wilhem-San’s Wife is alive!!! How can that be? Wait…It is possible for her to be of the sins because from what Wilhelm said. The White Whale “killed” her, so it could be possible that she didn’t die. Wilhelm said it himself that it’s not possible for her to lose to the White Whale or something like that in the anime. I don’t know…just a speculation

  19. Wow… Wilhelm, you..are so epic… And then with that mind-blowing twist, you just got more epic, man..
    She’s alive.. Why? How? Why did she? So many questions!!


  20. So, for a time, whenever Wilhelm and his wife were close, his wound would re-open. Cringy, you can’t hang around your wife. All{All[all(get what I mean?)]} sorts of interactions would be painful.


  21. Can you please share the original Japanese title for this chapter ? I mean how do you say “To Each, Their Oaths” in Japanese?


  22. So is there any teasers onto rem being recovered after greed is killed anywhere or has that arc not been written by the original author yet? I need to know if rem survives or I’m gonna die😖


  23. So, i just decided to pop up here and thank you ( should’ve done this on the previous parts, sry XO )
    Your work is wonderful, and the dedication you put on your translations is awesome.
    Keep up the good work, you’re really making something great here.

  24. As a non-native speaker I might be mistakening, but shouldnt sentence
    “And afterward I was able to entrust Emilia and the villagers to you.”
    be like
    “And afterward I was able to entrust Emilia and the villagers thanks to you.”?
    For I cannot find any knowledge in my brain that would’ve explained to me how this sentence was built otherwise.
