Previous Chapter:



The great tiger let out a painful wail as the impact bent its body into a V, choking the air from its lungs. Then, swinging her body, Patrasche slammed her tail into the tiger’s eyes, temporarily robbing it of its vision.
Immediately turning around, Patrasche picked up Subaru with her mouth and attempted once more to escape into the wind――

[Subaru: Patra――]

His call was interrupted by a sound of tearing flesh.
Dangling by his waist from Patrasche’s mouth, Subaru was suddenly thrown into the ground ahead. When he looked back, Subaru saw that Patrasche’s tail was caught in the great beast’s fangs. Her body which weighed over 400 kilograms was being flailed about like a paper toy.
Patrasche screeched in pain. Her flesh ripped as blood sprayed out, and the instant her tail was severed from its root, blood spouted down, dyeing half of Subaru in red.

Helplessly tossed into the air, Patrasche tumbled to the ground. Witnessing her wretched state, with panting breaths, Subaru turned and glared at the giant tiger.
Harboring utmost hatred in his single eye, Subaru faced down the enemy whom he once might have called friend,

[Subaru: Ga……rfiiiiieeEEELLLLLLL……!]

With only single-minded hostility, he called to that name.
There was no answer. Perhaps beastification had robbed it of its human vocal organ. For within the mighty tiger’s throat as it extended out its paw, there was no hatred, or murder, or any words, for that matter.
There was only instinct transformed into action.

――To snap his neck, or to crush his head in its jaw.

No matter what kind of pain, or how wretched his end, Subaru was ready to accept “Death”.
He would swallow down all the suffering, make it his food, and turn it into his reason to obtain that perfect future.

[Subaru: You think you’ll be around in that future……?]

With his gaze fixed on the steadily approaching claw, Subaru conveyed his hateful final words.
And then, closing his left eye, he shut his sight into darkness.

Left with only the regret of Patrasche’s sacrifice, and his inability to save her――

[Subaru: ――――?]

Although Subaru was ready to accept the coming end, its visit did not come. Surprised, he furrowed his brows as irritation began to rise at the tardiness of the arrival of “Death”. Finally, he opened his eye,

[Subaru: Ah?]

In front of him, behind the sharp claw that was supposed to have ripped Subaru to shreds, he saw the expression on the beast’s face. The reason Subaru’s throat let out a stupid groan, was because the beast’s face, the face that was supposed to be pouring all its bloodlust onto Subaru, was instead turned towards a completely different direction.
The great beast had taken its gaze off of Subaru, and was instead looking towards something to Subaru’s left. Turning to follow its gaze, Subaru saw something fly over and bounce off the beast before rolling onto the ground. ――A rock.
Completely ordinary, it was just a rock about the size that would fit in the palm of a hand. Tracing back the course of the projectile, he saw the silhouette of a person standing at the edge of the treeline.

With short hair, a skinny face, and scrawny limbs, it was a man with no distinctive or noteworthy qualities whatsoever, but Subaru knew him.
He was one of the Arlam villagers, a member of the youth militia, one of the refugees who had taken refuge in the Sanctuary, someone who was aboard one of the toppled carriages, and now, he was there, staggering with blood flowing down his forehead.
Sluggishly, he bent down, picked up the nearest rock, and with feeble movements, he threw it at the beast. Of course, the force was next to nothing. But,

[Youth: Get.. away from Su..baru-sama. You… monster……]

Wrenching out his voice in midst groans of pain, he nonetheless asserted his will.
The moment those words struck him, Subaru suddenly felt a quiver running through his body. Losing his voice as it reached the tips of his fingers, not knowing what to say, Subaru watched in silence.

[Subaru: ――――]

Then, came rocks, boards, sticks, and shoes, thrown at the monster’s body from all directions.
What he was seeing was the people who should have been broken under the overwhelming pressure emanating from the beast putting up a clumsy, weak, and almost surreal resistance.

[Subaru: he…y…….]

What are they doing? Subaru thought, astounded.
What is the point of doing something like that? Did they think they could do something to the beast? Would it penetrate its fur and hide, and do any damage to the flesh beneath? That’s not even possible. It won’t even leave a scratch. It’s only futile resistance.

[Subaru: Stop……]

Hugging their heads and running away should have been the wisest choice.
They should have all boarded any still-functional dragon carriages and immediately fled this place. Either escape into the Sanctuary, or break through the forest. They should have taken an action that left them at least a small chance of staying alive. And yet, why were they――

[Subaru: Everyone, what’re you doing!? Hurry, run away……]

[Old Man: Subaru-sama! You won’t convince us just like that!]

Subaru waved his arms, desperately trying to convey his intentions, but his words were cut short.
The one who shouted back was an old man with limbs like dried twigs, who, swinging up one arm with all his might, threw a branch that struck directly on the beast’s snout. Then, panting, he looked over to Subaru,

[Old Man: If we ran for our lives and abandoned our benefactor, how could we ever show our face in front of our kids again? Besides, you came here in order to help us……]

[Subaru: That’s……]

[Old Man: If you die here, then we’ll die here as well. That’s the least we’ll be willing to accept, and that’s what everyone’s already agreed on]

Stunned, Subaru’s face stiffened.
Seeing Subaru’s astonished expression, for some reason, a gentle smile rose up on the man’s face. It was just way too out of place, a bright smile that almost made one forget about the threat that was before them.

The attack resumed. Everyone struck at once at the murderous beast――Garfiel, with a hail of stones. But its power was just as weak as before. Far from causing him to flinch, it wasn’t even enough to scratch an itch.
Slowly raising his massive body, Garfiel began to move. Ignoring Subaru at the forest’s edge, who was only waiting to be torn apart―― it turned to the youth who had thrown the first stone.

[Youth: ――――]

The beast and the youth faced one another. In front of the overwhelming pressure, the youth lost his voice, but, with only the act of drawing his short sword from its sheath on his hip, he asserted his will,

[Youth: Then, eat this――!]

Placing all his force behind the thrust, the youth drove it between Garfiel’s brows―― and, in the next instant, with a shrill sound, the blade snapped in two.
Perhaps because the golden fur possessed considerable resilience, the crudely made blade failed to penetrate it.
Then, as the youth completed his final defiance, the beast raised its paw,

[Subaru: Stop――!!]

Subaru screamed. But even so, in the face of the inevitable, it was nothing but empty noise.

Accompanied by the sound of crushing flesh, the youth’s scrawny body was crushed from head to toe into a pulp under the force of the impact. Blood sprayed like a fountain from the gaps of Garfiel’s claws, and when he lifted the paw once more, left in its wake was nothing but a swirling, dark red puddle of gore.

[Subaru: ――――]

This time, a scream of pure wrath rose in his throat.
With a screech that could slice through metal, Subaru scrambled off the ground and threw himself directly at the monster’s back. But the attack was snuffed out by a light rise of the beast’s hind-paw. His momentum was met by the paw, and, just like that, Subaru’s was kicked into the air like a rubber ball, sending his back crashing into the trunk of a large tree――his entire body cracked in the sound of shattering bones.

[Subaru: GA, AAAagh――!?]

Rolling onto the ground, giant clots of blood surging up his aching throat spilled from his mouth. His body was unresponsive. His right arm, beginning from the shoulder, was twisted into a strange angle. His spine, having sustained that impact, completely lost its shape. Weak, and frail, nothing had changed at all.

[Beast: ――――!!]

[Villagers: aaaah――!!]

The beast, barking, leaped into the fray of refugees around him, flaunting fangs and claws. Blood danced, shrieks resounded, and Subaru knew that lives were being extinguished in a place he could not see.
Someone was screaming. A bestial scream. Bestial, and yet in the voice of a human. Confusion ran through the beast. Whose scream was it? What was it roaring for? Trapped within his own failures, Subaru did not know the answer.

[O??o: ――Natsuki-san! Please stay alive!]

His name was called. It was the voice of someone he knew, but his mind’s attempt to match the voice to a name was obstructed by the pain. His thoughts flashed and dimmed, the world grew out of focus, and even his own emotions were vague. He could no longer tell what was a dream and what was real. Hatred and pain scattered all else into the wind.
He mustn’t fall asleep here. He must stand up. Stand up, stand up, if anyone is going to die, you have to be the one to die first.

[Subaru: …don..’t die……ev..ryone……just me, dying…… is more than enough……!]

Spewing blood while wrenching out these words, Subaru desperately tried to push himself off the ground. His right arm already useless, he frantically crawled with his left. A red curtain had been drawn over his left field of vision, and Subaru knew that it was the blood flowing from his forehead. Roughly scraping his eyelids against his shoulder, he clenched his teeth as if to crush his molars, and turned up his face.

[Subaru: ――――]

The carnage spanned out before him.

Every swing of the beast’s arm sent men flying, blood spraying, extinguishing the flames of life.
No matter how courageous and desperate their resolve, their resistance fell uselessly against the beast. Its golden fur was stained only with their blood, and their deaths had no meaning at all.
Mere defiance, only to be blown away like dust. Not the slightest meaning at all.
If there was only a single “Death” that could be meaningful, it was Subaru’s.

[Subaru: Stop it, stop it, stop it stop it stop it…… please, stop……!]

If you are going to kill, kill me first.
He was the target to begin with. There was no reason to hurt those brave, kind people, no reason to take their lives.
Or, rather, wasn’t their deaths just another consequence of Subaru’s stupidity? If so, then isn’t it just too――

[Subaru: ――ug, ah!?]

Subaru felt his body being picked up, as his face dropped down towards the ground.
Dangling helplessly from his back, Subaru was lifted off the ground by Patrasche, who was bleeding profusely from her wounds. Despite only barely clinging onto life after Garfiel’s merciless strike, she had crawled to Subaru’s side.
Witnessing her pitiful state, Subaru could not hold back what was welling up in the back of his eye from flowing out,

[Subaru: No, it’s alright…… that’s enough. You’ve done enough, Patrasche……]

Softly calling to her, Subaru reached out his hand to Patrasche’s blood-soaked jaw. But she shook her head at Subaru’s voice, as if trying to say [It’s not over yet, you know]. Then, tugging her muzzle under Subaru’s stomach, she lifted the helpless Subaru onto her back.
Subaru groaned in surprise. And with this, Patrasche set out her steps. The steadiness of her strides made one wonder just how she still had strength left within her.
No doubt, she was using up the last strengths of her life.

[Subaru: ――――]

But even with the last ounce of life force she could muster, straining herself to the end, her speed was nothing compared to what she was usually capable of. And so, it was far from enough to escape the pursuing fangs.

The beast’s teeth sank into Patrasche’s hind leg as she shrieked with pain. Once again, Subaru was thrown into the air. But, floating weightlessly through space, just as he was prepared to crash to the ground, Patrasche reached out her neck and caught him in her jaw.
And, in the same motion, with all her might, she used her head to throw him as far as she could into the depths of the trees.

[Subaru: ――――!]

Subaru knew that it was all Patrasche could have done to put him as far from harm’s way as she could.
At the same time, he realized it. Why, after parting with Ram, she had taken the shortcuts through the forest to rejoin with the train of refugees.

――Patrasche had sensed the existence of the beast.

And because she sensed it, in order to increase the chance of Subaru’s survival, if only by a little, she fled towards the place where there were the largest number of other preys. All to protect Subaru.

Slamming onto the ground, Subaru’s body bounced once, then twice. And after wailing at the third bounce―― weightlessness overtook his body once again.

[Subaru: ――a]

A steep slope opened into a ravine, and Subaru’s body rolled straight downward. Without even the strength to cry out, scraped by branches and gravel, tossed from bounce to bounce, Subaru’s body tumbled and fell,

[Subaru: ――――]

Sliding in somersaults, his vision swirling and swaying, Subaru caught a glimpse of what was above him.
There, he witnessed a sight he had no wish to see.

[Subaru: ――――patrasche]

The great tiger held Patrasche’s body in its jaws, and clenched down with unimaginable force. Its fangs tore into her flesh, and in a mass of spraying blood, her body was crushed in two.
Unable to even cry out in death, the loyal dragon sacrificed her last for Subaru.

[Subaru: ――――]

His throat burned. His throat was tearing. Rage was boiling his brain and it felt like his blood was catching fire.
Bouncing, tumbling, sliding, rolling, scraping, Subaru went on falling.

――Rebounding high into the air, he felt weightless once again.

Crashing to the ground, his consciousness was swallowed into the impact.
His body did not stop falling. But all awareness had already separated from his flesh.

――Only a resentful voice, which refused to disappear, swirled and churned within his chest.

Best girl Patrasche… ;-;

    1. Will Gargiel be redeemed of this killing spree IF we find out he can’t control himself in this form at all ?

      Also since we didn’t see Subaru die in this chapter this only makes me think that the ”big thing” Otto sensed 2 chapters ago will happen .
      Now that I think about it , where is Otto ?

      1. Probably dead or in the middle of the villagers…

        [O??o: ――Natsuki-san! Please stay alive!]

        Assuming he was the one who said that, would make sense imo.

      2. I think the “bestial scream in a human voice” might be Otto using his Divine Protection to speak to the beast.
        Afterwards, because Otto realized he couldn’t convince Garf, he told Natsuki-san to stay alive while he was probably being killed.

  1. Heartrending chapter.

    Only mistake I noticed was:

    ‘Sliding in somersaults, his vision swirling and swaying, Subaru caught a glimpse of WHAT ABOVE him.’

    add: what REMAINED/AWAITED above him.

    I was hoping that Patrasche wouldn’t get hurt at all but i foolishly forgot what story i was reading. When Barusu returns by death, I’m gonna treasure every Patrasche x Subaru moment 😦
    this was a cruel, cruel chapter. Probably just as cruel as Rem’s sacrifice in the sloth arc.

  4. Every single time this happens I just imagine the author when he tried to muster the concept of this story, when trying to create RE:zero. I just imagine an intelligence driven japanese man in front of a computer screen thinking, “Golly! What in the name of interestingness would be a story where I could make bad things happen as effectively and versatily as possible?”.

  10. all that to kill subaru? the hell is going on here, i think there is some huge overestimation from garfiel on subaru.
    and plz subaru just die and get on to the next loop, and who knows if the reset didnt change? lets hope not, but im tired to see subaru crippled already haha


    1. Yeah if i were subaru id be worried about that too, but honestly the save points confuse me, for example after he kills the white whale the save point updates to before he fights the witches cult even though he had already gone that far before


  11. First of all: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR DEDICATION IN FINISHING THIS CHAPTER. I really appreciate it, so much so that I still want to get you that damn burger!

    *Subaru wakes up after return by death*
    Subaru: “Hey Garfiel, come ‘ere a sec”.
    Garfiel: “You’s about as annoying as the spindle on a noose!”
    Subaru: “I’m not sure I understand that but… I just wanted to tell you something.”
    Garfiel: “Go on then, I can’t take this stink much longer.”
    Subaru: “Bitch, I can return by death, fuck you, die!”

  12. NO NO NO anyone but my girl Patrasche : ( This chapter is not only sad but I’m almost a little nauseous (kind the standard for Re Zero I know but still). Even so its a GREAT chapter. I feel like at this point no matter what insite the author gives us into Garfiel I’m still going to REALLY REALLY hate him but who knows.

    Thanks, I know this one must have been emotinally draining to translate.

    Keep up the good work oh great chicken ; )


  13. Why all the Garfiel hate? I’m pretty sure Garfiel’s going berserk because he just killed Ram and blames Subaru for her death. The fact that he’s still in beast mode despite having absolutely no need for it kind of attests to him being blinded by pain and wrath.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. His killing Ram would already justify the hate, he’s just a preevish, selfish, stubborn child drunk on his own sense of superiority.


        1. Well, I didn’t. I also don’t love her or Rem for that matter. But I’ve given my reasons for disliking the character: “he’s just a preevish, selfish, stubborn child drunk on his own sense of superiority”. If that’s not good enough reason for you to dislike a character, it is for me. I myself really dislike all characters that are like that. You don’t. Don’t see a problem.


  14. Btw guys do you realise there is a possibility it’s not Garfiel, right? 🙂 I mean, it probably is, but it could still be someone else (for example in fight Ram vs Garfiel, there could jump in Lewes)… Just theorizing though. 🙂


    1. And yea I just got an idea… what if Ram somehow killed Garfiel, Lewes jumped in afterwards and killed Ram (that would explain Lewes going berserk and the wand on the back)… hahaha, I love thinkig about possibilities 😀


    2. And yea I just got an idea… what if Ram somehow killed Garfiel, then Lewes jumps in going berserk ending up killing Ram and then rushing for Subaru (that would even explain the wand on the back). This even explains why would that Beast go that far for killing everyone, not just subaru. Hahaha I love thinking about possibilities. ❤ this show


    3. Sincerely, no. Unless the author writers far worse than I think he does. The tiger not being Garfiel (his and Federika’s pointed theet and gold eyes, together with Garfiel’s unreasonable violent behavior are more than evidence enough, and it’s not logical that it should be anyone else, storywise) would just be a VERY cheap cop out or asspuller. One doesn’t lead the story in a certain direction and then suddenly says, “no sorry, that’s not where I was going.” That’s just poor writing of the worst sort, and even though I don’t think the author is any great writer, I also don’t think he’s as bad as that.


  15. And yea I just got an idea… what if Ram somehow killed Garfiel, then Lewes jumps in going berserk ending up killing Ram and then rushing for Subaru (that would even explain the wand on the back). This even explains why would that Beast go that far for killing everyone, not just subaru. Hahaha I love thinking about possibilities. ❤ this show


  16. Chicken-sama, a question if I may. Do you know how I can assist in the translations? I do not know kanji, yet have you an idea how to start?


  17. at this point i would be so pissed off against garfiel i would just flat out tell him
    “yo i can return by death and you killed me and my dragon in my last life”
    remember when satella killed emilia cause of this he should try it then he should kill every other civilian in the graveyard just go crazy one time


        1. I sure hope so! Sincerely, the fact that he doesn’t shout at them “Hey! I Can Return From Death!” at the top of his lungs when no one else is around baffles me. It’s as idiotic as people saying Batman or Superman should not kill psychopathic villains. I guess the author doesn’t do it because it would make it too easy for Basuru to overcome all obstacles, but it’s silly to show he can and then have him be such a nice guy that he doesn’t use it even on Elsa.


      1. Because he’s used it multiple times already and Satella has only done that once and that wa to punish him. She’s not his gofer.


        1. Sorry, but when did he use if after that one time with Emilia? I think only against Betelgeuse, as far as I can remember. Definitely don’t recall him using this solution multiple times.


          1. Point is, he’s used it many times before that time with Emilia and it only resulted with him almost dying, really.

            It’s more logical to think that Emilia dying was Satella’s clever way of punishing Subaru.

            For all you know, Satella might even just kill everyone else around them except for Garfiel.

            There’s also the smell that just downright provokes certain people/beings.

            Really makes no sense to try that “solution”.


  18. Am I the only one here that thinks that Garfiel us such an amazing character??
    I mean…Yes,I know in this chapter makes the worst of him but in my eyes,he is such a mysterious and also somewhat very emotional character..I know for a fact that he won’t go that far just bc he hates Barusu like so frckn much..But he has a hidden goal in mind,one that is more important than his love life(ram),his sibling(frederica),and also the safety and the freedom of the Sanctuary…
    All I could say is,he is such an amazing character bc he would go soo frckn far for his goals,even if he would need to get his hands full with blood and stuff….


    1. Yes, that’s very Japanese of Garfiel. And also very shounen. I personally dislike characters that have a goal in life and sacrifice everything for that goal. For me, they come across as just childish, stubborn and extremely selfish. So, I’m certain you’re not alone in liking Garfiel, but I could never like him, he’s too prone to violence for my taste. At least Boku no Hero Academia’s Bakugan is comical, sometimes.


    2. I am also one of the few that like him, he is an interesting antagonist, but i see him more as far too strong emotional brat who has lost control of everything around him right now.


    3. I like Garfiel because he has more depth to him then just about every character except Subaru at this point. The fact that he’s even killing villagers in his rampage right now makes me think there’s something more going on that we just don’t know about yet. In the past few chapters the author has put some effort into showing that though Garfiel comes off as aloof and stubborn, he also shows a great deal of restraint and can be quite thoughtful. Can’t wait to see how this all turns out!


  19. I’m soo confused, so is there no arc 5? And also, how come you started arc 6 when you haven’t finished arc 4? I’ve started reading the translated WN chicken created (btw thank you sooo much), and I’ve been reading it up until this point. I haven’t heard of any spoilers for any future chapters, so I’m confused. Should I start reading arc 6 or should I wait for the rest of arc 4 and arc 5 chapters to be released??? ALSO I DONT WANT TO SEE ANY SPOILERS***

    Liked by 1 person

    1. actually there is an arc 5, TC just started to translate the arc 6 because that was the latest release of the japanese WN and TC has some theory that tells him that ARC 6 is going onto something interesting


  20. I just read one of the chapters in arc 6, it said no major spoilers so I dicided to read it lol, but there were two parts in it which gave away a lot of things, 1 of them was obvious, but the other major spoiler is very hard to notice, as it’s only in one scentence and not intentional. Just thought I should point that out for the people that are very curious and hate even the really minor spoilers. I’m guessing I should just wait for chicken to finish the rest of arc 4 and later chapters 🙂 THANK YOU SOO MUCH CHICKEN FOR TRANSLATING THE WN!! You da best !!!!!


  21. I can handle Rem falling into a coma, Ram being murdered and villagers getting slaughtered. But fucking Patrasche? Seriously..? I will kill everybody.


    ❤ Chicken. Thanks for the continious consistent stream of translations. You're so good a' person.

    Kys Garfiel


  22. Subaru will probably be on the outer edge of the sanctuary so I think he’ll be safe from Garfiel next chapter. Subaru hasn’t learned enough in this timeline yet so he can’t die. He still hasn’t figured out what happened to the people in the sanctuary which was his main goal. Is it just me or has Subaru been getting resilient lately. It takes a freakin lot to kill him. I hope he tries something different next timeline. Maybe find a way to take the trials, befriend Garf, or find a way to reel him in. When Rem killed Subaru for having the witches scent he had to prove to her that he was a good guy. I don’t know if something is wrong with me, but I was more affected by Patrasche dying then Ram. I’m very curious to see how this story unfolds.


  23. *Whew* Finally caught up with the translated web novel!

    Thank you so much, Chicken-sama and everyone who helps him translate this magnificent novel.


  24. Who’s the best girl now
    Seriously tho….this chapter is filled with despair

    And as always , thanks chicken-sama for the translation


  25. ahh finally catch up~ i tried limiting my self from reading but every chapter is just a cliffhanger so.. finished it till the end with only few sitting pew really amazing job there sir! THANK YOU! definitely a god level now 😀


  26. Same I finished reading all the chapters in arc 4 yesterday that have been written soo far lol. I’m soo impatient now, I really want to read another chapter 😦 😦 😦 thanks soo much chicken for translating the WN!!!


  27. Parasche NOOOOOOO!!! Another Episode 15 for Rezero Season 2 just like Rem killed by Betelguess and Subaru is being helpless and hopeless crying out loud(as always)the SUFFERING NEVER GONNA END F*****CK this GARFIEL I’M GONNA HATE HIM WHENEVER IT HAPPENS hahahaha still Thanks for the most SCARIEST and THRILLING CHAPTERS CHICKEN SAMAas Always DAMMM Subaru you need to figured out something like Make a Gun for an instant to kill one shot with that Bastard I NEED THAT BASTART DEAD hahahaha Thanks for the chapter XD


  28. now it becomes abit clearer: i guess the town was empty coz the refugees escaped (and maybe killed) in the previous loop but it doesnt explain why the local villagers disappeared. hard to think garfiel would kill them too


  29. Don’t get one thing: why on earth Subaru doesn’t use his ultimate secret weapon?
    He can just whisper to this bastard Garfiel: “I can return by death”. And he won’t be problem any more. There is no way successfully end this loop and spare him at the same time. His too powerful and “super-sneaky” to handle otherwise.


    1. If anything, the smell will only make garfiel even more pissed and try more ruthlessly to kill him. if you’re talking about the witch killing emilia, i think that only happened because she knew that’d hurt him more than just killing him, but i don’t think she’d do it again and harm garfiel


      1. Witch is in love with Subaru and I works that way now. I think it will help any way. Will die Garfiel – it helps. Will Subaru – he can start new loop with new knowledge. Both scenario is a way out of this horror.


        1. The comment of J-san ( the one after this ) explains your question .

          Just want to add that if Satella truly wanted to help Subaru she could just let him explain his ability to others or defend him from the attackers in some way .
          Also the scenario in which Subaru dies is to torment him , to make him feel the pain of his death and those around him until his will breaks , over and over again , while the smell of the witch in him gets stronger , and with that his corruption and possibly the connection to the witch ( until he achieves the goal she set for him to fulfill ) .

          Sounds like a win-win scenario for Subaru , right ?


        2. The comment of J-san ( the one after this ) explains your question . Read his explanation because im tired of people like you who keep on saying why not let satella kill garfiel or elsa!


          1. Really, I always got the impression that it was an automated mechanism, AKA, a spell put on Barusu. And “I’m tired of…” I don’t see the need of getting aggressive because people have different views on the matter.


  30. For those saying ”why won’t Subaru just shout ”I can return by death” and let Satella’s hands kill the tiger…..BECAUSE IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY! that time with Emilia it happened because Subaru was prepared to die and didn’t care about himself and kinda showed defiance and Satella was like ”even if you don’t care about your life I can still crush the hearts of the ones you love” that’s it!
    and if you think ”well Satella loves Subaru she will help him and kill Garfiel or Elsa this time” if that so,then when he used it against the white whale why didn’t the hands help Subaru or kill the whale? why would it help Subaru against Garfiel and not the white whale?…..because it wasn’t meant to help Subaru but to torment him and keep him from telling others about it! if Subaru was to force it out against Garfiel, I think it would just crush his heart and kill him which will lead to him returning by death!


  31. Yh true, and satella knew he will come back to life anyway so there was no point of saving him, he already lost everything so he might aswell just die and go the the next loop.


  32. In the officially translated light novel when Subaru tries to speak of return death those hands touch his internal organs and grab his heart and grip harder and harder to the point that it is crushing his very soul. It stops time and crushes his heart.

    The anime tones it down but he’s being torn apart outside of time, like the anime shown the first time except it isn’t just a brief moment… Who knows how long the witch grips his heart before he comes back?


  33. NOOO, Patrasche!!! Garfiel die already, c’mon, just screw you merciless son of a.
    I’m not crying, you are crying. Dammit.
    Thanks for the translations!


  34. Thank you so much for translating this!
    If this scene gets animated, i’m sure it will be as painful as watching rems body got twisted by betelguise T_T


  35. This “golden” piece of trash deserves to die. I don’t care about his personality, his past, his reasons or whatever. Nothing can justify his terrible crimes. He can’t be redeemed. I can’t understand people, who are trying to justify him, even if they know something about him. I was so fucking glad, when I saw this Subaru’s line “[Subaru: You think you’ll be around in that future……?]” and I hope that Subaru will stick to his words in the future. Subaru needs to stop with his pacifism bullshit. He needs to eliminate this trash once and forever. And if Tappei will somehow make Subaru and Garfiel as “friends” in the end, after everything that happened, I will stop reading this instantly. Only dare to do that to me, Tappei. Don’t make clown fiesta from Re:Zero.
