Previous Part 1/2:

Coming out of Roswaal’s residence, Subaru wandered beneath the moonlight.

[Subaru: ――What do I do?]

Muttering a seemingly impenetrable question, voicing the words that had been repeating over and over in his mind, he was answered by only an echoless silence.
His question reached no one, merely disappearing into the void leaving a lingering emptiness in his throat.

In every sense of the word, he was stuck.

He would have neither Roswaal nor Echidona’s help now.
Collaborating with Echidona was now physically impossible, and collaborating with Roswaal was now sentimentally impossible.

Subaru had conceived of this possibility.
That perhaps Roswaal was Elsa’s employer and the attack on the Mansion was in order to spur Emilia―― or rather, Subaru, towards the Trials.

It was almost as if Elsa knew exactly when Subaru would arrive at the Mansion. And then there was the death of the possible informer, Frederica, combined with Elsa’s knowledge of the hidden passage and the Forbidden Library. All things considered, the only remaining suspects were Ram and Roswaal.
However, Ram’s utter devotion to Roswaal would give her no reason to do anything against Roswaal’s interests, so that left only Roswaal. ――Yet, Subaru had always kept this possibility out of his mind, not because he didn’t want it to be true, but because he thought it couldn’t be.

[Subaru: If Roswaal is Elsa’s employer, then……]

When Emilia’s insignia was stolen the very day Subaru was summoned to this world, was that also on Roswaal’s instructions?
If the Gospel’s texts had foretold of Subaru’s existence, of the existence of the Authority of Return by Death, and of the fact that it would prove indispensable to Emilia’s victory, then the upheavals of that day would all have been necessary to procure Subaru as an ally.

His frantic efforts that day, the three deaths he endured to save Emilia, and Emilia’s smile when he asked her for her name, was all that simply playing into Roswaal’s hands?

[Subaru: If everything was following this prophecy…… then Rem’s existence being stolen, the Sanctuary being entrapped… all of it was according to someone’s plan……?]

In that case, all of Subaru’s desperate struggles would have been nothing more than dancing to the strings that someone else was pulling.
Was abandoning everything besides Emilia really the only way to proceed? Now that all roads were closed, was there truly no other choice?

[Subaru: What am I, stupid? ……No, I am being stupid. This is exactly the kind of brainless thinking that made Roswaal…… if I let the same thing happen to me, I……]

The Gospel is not absolute. No one understood this more than Subaru, who had personally overwritten the prophecies in Petelgeuse’s Gospel.
The future-instructing Gospel is not all-powerful. In fact, every time something deviated from the writ, Roswaal gave up on the world and placed his hopes on the next――

[Subaru: ――huh?]

He felt like he hit on something strange just now.
While speculating on Roswaal’s Gospel and carefully going over the events in sequence, Subaru sensed that something was unmistakably amiss. But he just couldn’t quite put his finger on it.

[Subaru: What is it… what….. something’s off. But, what is it……!?]

As if being given an impossible riddle, Subaru searched through the mist for some sliver of light.
Roswaal’s Gospel. Acting in accordance to the writ. Beatrice’ Gospel. The Witch Cult’s Gospel. The cessation of new prophecies following the death of its owner. Blank pages. Outcomes following the prophecy. Outcomes that don’t follow the prophecy―― this ongoing present that is currently deviating from the writ.

[Subaru: Still nothing. ――It’s one step away, but I just can’t reach it…]

Though he felt he was holding all the pieces of the puzzle, they would always scatter before he could form them into any semblance of an image. But it was a tug that he simply couldn’t ignore.
Every time he was stuck like this, it was by piecing together smaller clues into an answer that he found the way out.
This time is no different. If he could just assemble the fragments one by one――

[???: ――Subaru?]

[Subaru: Mn?]

The call of his name pulled Subaru’s consciousness out of the sea of thoughts.
Breaking out of the water’s surface, he found himself standing in the darkness under the pouring moonlight, and saw Emilia gazing at him with her shimmering silver hair swaying.

Unable to hide his surprise at this unexpected encounter and the pain that stabbed at his chest, Subaru raised his hand, and,

[Subaru: Oh, Emilia……tan. What’re you doing out here? It’s pretty late, you know?]

[Emilia: But that’s the same for you too, Subaru. If you stay up too late, you won’t grow any taller]

[Subaru: I… think I’m about finished with puberty, so I’m not super worried about that……]

Emilia came in with a topic that was slightly beside the point as usual. Regaining some of his calmness thanks to her reply, Subaru naturally slid himself to Emilia’s side.
They were in the middle of the Sanctuary, in something of an open plaza. Leaning herself against the mossy stone of a dried-out fountain, Emilia’s silver hair drifted in the night wind as she looked to Subaru beside her.

Gazing into the charm of her melancholy, amethyst eyes sent a sweet, aching pulse into his weakened heart.

[Emilia: I couldn’t fall asleep, so I kind of came out for a walk…… what about you, Subaru?]

[Subaru: ……Nah, it’s the same for me. I’m the kinda guy who can’t sleep if you swap out my pillow, and also Otto snores surprisingly loud]

[Emilia: I’m reeeaally surprised you’re dainty about those kinds of things, Subaru]

Emilia gave a quiet laugh, putting her hand to her lips. Watching her from the side, Subaru reflected that this was the first time he had reunited with Emilia since Returning by Death tonight.
In places unconnected to Subaru, people’s actions generally follow the same path across the loops. Which means, on the night of challenging the First Trial, Emilia would’ve always come out here for a walk, unable to sleep.

Being invited to the tea party, being threatened by Garfiel’s violence, discovering Lewes’ true identity, and learning of Roswaal’s dark machinations―― while Subaru was busy with all of that, Emilia was changing as well.

[Emilia: ……You seem down, Subaru]

[Subaru: Mn, I guess. I’m not, though]

[Emilia: Hmm, liar. If you’re the usual Subaru, you’d be more…… kooky?]

[Subaru: It’s been a while since I heard anyone say “kooky”……]

It’s been a while since they’ve had this kind of exchange, Subaru thought as his cheek softened with relief. [See?], Emilia pointed at Subaru’s cheeks, smiling,

[Emilia: There, you smiled. You always try to smile when you’re in front of me, Subaru, but you couldn’t do it just now]

[Subaru: ――――]

[Emilia: Did something painful……happen? If you’re worried about something…… if you want to tell me, I’ll listen?]

Having the softening of his once-tense cheeks pointed out and having those words of concern flung at him, Subaru desperately tried to contain the heat building beneath his eyelids.
Her gentle, compassionate words permeated throughout his body. Surrounded on all sides, helpless and stuck, when even the last ray of hope is cut, he almost wanted to cling onto that beloved, tenderly-offered hand.
This wavering conviction, unable to follow through with even the resolve he had only just made, was both pathetic and frustrating.

[Subaru: It’s…… my own problem. I can’t put that burden on you]

[Emilia: …………]

[Subaru: Compared to me, you have a lot more on your hands, right? The way you were after the Trial…… are you really alright now?]

[Emilia: Mn, I got you worried. That was unsightly of me, wasn’t it? Sorry. ……I think I ran into a problem I just wasn’t mentally ready for at all]

Subaru looked away, trying to change the topic, while Emilia managed a powerless smile in reply.
She leaned back into the fountain behind her, looking up at the night sky as if to distract herself.

[Emilia: Really…… I wasn’t prepared at all. I’ve gotten this far by running away from so many things that I needed to face, but…]

[Subaru: I don’t see how that’s a bad thing… What’s so wrong with running away from things that you don’t like? Does facing unpleasant things all the time mean that you’ll beat them eventually? And who says you have to beat them? If you run away and find a different path, and then decide to take that path instead…… is that really something people have to fault you for?]

[Emilia: Subaru……?]

Watching all those words spill from Subaru’s tongue as he rambled, Emilia furrowed her brows. But without noticing her confusion, Subaru only kept going,

[Subaru: Echidona, who put up the Trials, Roswaal who knowingly lured us here, and Garfiel who keeps getting in the way, everyone’s just doing it for themselves. You’re free to do whatever the hell you want but why drag us into it? And then you criticize us for not living up to your expectations…… the hell do you want from us!?]

[Emilia: ――――]

[Subaru: My head’s about to explode and I’m at my wit’s end. And yet and yet and yet and yet more problems just keep piling up…… and to top it all off, it’s supposed to be all my fault? Don’t make me laugh. Don’t make me laugh. Don’t――]

Just as he was growing dizzy from the surging emotions and inexplicable rage――
――Soft palms wrapped around the back of his head, as he felt his body being pulled downwards. Feeling his head plunging into the softness before him, Subaru inadvertently stopped breathing.

A hot, yet tender touch enveloped Subaru’s face.
Through its warmth, he heard a heartbeat, while his blanked-out consciousness began to realize what was happening―― realize that he was being cradled against Emilia’s breasts.

[Subaru: Aa, aah――?]

[Emilia: Take it slow. Quietly now. Take it slowly, and listen to the sound of my heart]

[Subaru: ――Nn]

[Emilia: Leave yourself to the steady rhythm, and quietly breathe in, and out…… and repeat. Once you’re calm, give me a pat on the back. Until then, we can just stay like this]

His spine tingling with pleasure at the sound of the whisper in his ear, Subaru’s breathing accelerated. The shock of his unhinged emotions was blown away, replaced by the torment of all the blood in his body boiling.
How did it become like this? He was listening to the quiet beating of Emilia’s heart, yet his own was about to jump out of his chest.
But even his panicked heartbeat was naturally unravelling alongside Emilia’s breathing as her palms softly caressed the back of his head. Obeying her whispers, he took a deep breath, exhaled, and repeated until his lungs and his heart returned to normal.
Quietly, he tapped Emilia’s back. Her hands on his head moved away at this signal, while Subaru stood up, withstanding his reluctance to part,

[Emilia: Calmed down now?]

[Subaru: ……Somewhat]

Facing her gleaming amethyst eyes, Subaru spilled a small sigh.
Hearing his reply, with [I’m glad], a relieved smile rose on Emilia’s face. Trying his best not to blush from embarrassment, Subaru gave a little shake of his head,

[Subaru: Sorry I lost it there… I really didn’t want to trouble you like this]

[Emilia: I don’t feel troubled at all]

[Subaru: But, you must be going through a lot more than I am… there’s no question about that. ……If I could, I should be saving you from all this…… that’s what I thought]

[Emilia: Subaru……]

He had always shown off his cool side in front of Emilia.
But the truth is, he was just an embarrassing, weak, conceited, useless, boastful try-hard who wanted to be at her side.

[Subaru: Nothing ever goes right… in fact I…… spoke with Roswaal just now. About whether there’s a way to free the Sanctuary without the Trials]

[Emilia: Huh?]

[Subaru: Truth is, I thought it’d be best if I took the Trials in your place…… but now, I don’t think I can anymore. So I thought I’d at least find the least painful shortcut, but even that’s not working out. Just… what do I do…… I’m sorry I’m so useless……]

[Emilia: Subaru――]

Subaru hung his head. Despite receiving so many chances to repeat through Return by Death, he still failed to find a single solution. Just how pathetic is that?
If he had done just a little better, he could’ve prevented those tragic worlds he saw in the Second Trial from ever coming to be.
And here too, there must be something he could do about this miserable situation――

[Subaru: But, I will find a way. I will make sure you won’t have to get hurt or suffer anymore. So please, trust me…]

[Emilia: ……Subaru]

[Subaru: Yeah?]

Emilia looked up at Subaru with her eyes drenched in tears.
Gazing back at those teary eyes, within his wavering heart, Subaru steeled his resolve to ensure that its most integral part would never falter.
He will defend Emilia, overcome the Sanctuary, save the Mansion, and recover everything.

Though there is not the faintest visible sliver of hope in the road ahead, surely, he――

[Emilia: I’m happy you feel this way. I truly am. ――But, I cannot accept this kindness]

Yet, the resolve he had just supposedly steeled was, by the lips of that girl with unyielding conviction in her eyes, flat-out rejected.

        1. I wouldn’t call it a full “good quality” translation, the old translations read like a translated manuscript.
          Chicken Sama’s reads like a book, 10/10 Chicken Sama’s version any day.


        2. Old translation example: Subaru: “But I will do something. I will do something so you’ll suffer no pain or badness, Emilia.
          Please believe in me.”

          Chicken Sama: [Subaru: But, I will find a way. I will make sure you won’t have to get hurt or suffer anymore. So please, trust me…]

  1. I like how Subaru takes the time to talk with other characters these past few chapters , like trundere Otoo and now Emilia.

    As I was reading the chapter I didn’t really understand what Subaru meant here .
    [Subaru: …And then you criticize us for not living up to your expectations…… the hell do you want from us!?]

    What is he referring too exactly ?

        1. can we add Frederica to this list? i mean to leave garf an unstable kid that could beat up adults when he was 5 alone especially after their parents are gone. to have your whole family abandon you… no wonder garf is fked up.


          1. She didn’t abandon him wtf are u saying? Garf himself refused to come along with frederica even after she persuaded him.


          2. idk could have beaten him up dragged him off xd. kinda find it hard to believe its a coincidence ‘again’ that their mom went missing when their boss has a prediction book super convenient keeping garf there to ‘protect’ sanctuary and guide the clones. a good little tool to use indeed


  2. I was behind some 20 posts or so and I was thinking that I will never catch up now with the exams and all that.
    Then a half day later I was just wondering how did the time pass like that (too bad I missed the revelation that Echidna is most likely just talking to doels of her own making and not the real witches).

    Anyway I would really like to see the end of the arc 6 chapter that is 2/3 part way done. I think I saw in the comments that someone has asked this before and the reason that you don’t do it is because of negative feedback ? I can see that being the case , but want to point out that I don’t understand the reasoning behind the people that give this kind of feedback . Wouldn’t they have the same problem with arc 5 anyway?
    Well at the very least, when you don’t want to do arc 4 for a day or 2 but sth a little different or perhaps have free time , consider finishing the chapter (not demanding or anything, just asking, want to be clear on this. Only to finish the chapter that is all)

    P.S. and then 2 more parts for consistency sake , and then finishing the next 3rd part of the next chapter ,
    rinse and repeat until we finish arc 6 . jk

    1. I do really want to translate those Arc 6 chapters as well… I just haven;t decided when.
      You guys’ comments do impact me a bit, so it would influence me if you guys tell me you want to see more Arc 6.


      1. Well, I’m more interested in arc 6 after seeing the rest of arcs 4 and 5.
        Tbh, I was curious about if you’d want to translate the web novel version of the first three arcs as well, once you’ve caught up. I’m curious what the original versions of them were.

        Liked by 3 people

        1. I am just saying that some people , like me , do not mind to see ahead of the story and even Chicken seems to want to read it , after all he wouldn’t have had translated any of it in the first place .
          And in the end it is not like it is that big of deal to don’t get a chapter for 1 or 2 days every 3 weeks+ (now we are sitting at 15 or so ) since it is just 2 days , AND inevitably we will get to these chapters and you will just have more chapters ready to read then .


      2. I would absolutely love to see the rest of arc 6.
        And Its fair to say nobody should complain about reading spoilers.
        Really. Folks here know what they are reading. And it’s their choice to read it.

        Consider it our own gospel of the future. Is your brain trembling, yet?


      3. i am good with whatever you want to translate. heck if you want to do the ‘what ifs’ that would be great most of them are just a summary. esp the one where beako manages to save sub on the loop where he jumped off the cliff when ram was trying to kill him.


          1. yep a what if of sub trying to call the guards to stop elsa on the first loop seeing them all die and elsa weaken decides to help her escape..after first killing the 3 stooges,,,/…a if of him not getting hurt by elsa and riding to the mansion talking to emelia and only staying a few days then staying in the village and eventually a marriage with petra. yeah dude sub imprisons ram in that one there is short manga pics of it super fked up on these ifs. I LOVE it.


      4. Oh, so comments impact your decision?

        Then here we go…

        Oh my dearest holychicken senpai.
        Pls translate the Arc 6 chapters for your unworthy fellows.
        I really want to know what’s going on on in arc 6, especially since I have a feeling that something big is going to happen regarding Rem.

        So pls my almighty Lord chicken stop the suffering and show us your grace ❤


        1. Nothing with Rem right now. If that’s why you want the arc 6 chapters you can wait for more chapter because there’s litteraly nothing happening about her. Besides, these last few chapters are rather stale so chicken should not translate them right now if what you want is “advancing”.

          To be honest, I’d prefer chicken do the arc 6 chapters instead of succumbing to the hyenas that harass him about arc 5. But what I think she should do the most is do things in order. So he should finish arc 4 until he goes on to arc 5. After all, he is doing this translation for himself and he only translates what he reads. These arc 5 dudes are really rude.

      5. I Would Love To See The Next Chapter Of ARC 5, Or The One After It ( Depending On The One where Subaru Will Motivate The Citizens Of The City ).

        After That, I’M All For ARC 6 ❤ ❤ ❤

        Thank You, Chicken Sama !


        1. Like I said I haven’t seen the latest posts as they came , so I don’t know why some chapters of arc 5 are translated . Could anyone tell me why ?


      6. I am still interested in arc 6 :p

        You could do something like a poll about future chapters, i think there are some sites which would help in making polls.

        You could even ask for feedback about some themes you are interested in while you’re at it, general ratings of your work or similar stuff, might be interesting to try out.


      1. I have Zero intensions of starting a waifu war but it’s fairly obvious who the true best girl is.
        And that is Ram.
        ‘nough said


  3. My heart oh my heart 💔 rejected is such a stong word reminds me of the first time I confessed to the girls ,anyway what those kooky means?


  4. I’ve been stalking the table of contents for the past few days hoping to see another part go live. As soon as I noticed it was up I started reading. Keep up the great work, chicken!


  5. I’ve been waiting for Subaru to get called out for deciding Emilia couldn’t handle the trials, and choosing to take them in her place, for months! He means well, but he never asked her if that was what she wanted. He just decided she couldn’t handle it in time, and went over her head. It may have been kind of Subaru, but it was also WAY disrespectful. Hoping this is a wake-up call, and that maybe he’ll realize that his place right now is in providing emotional support for Emilia while she tackles her own inner demons, rather than trying to spare her from that without asking.

    In short, sometimes the princess doesn’t need a knight to go into battle for her. Sometimes she’s gotta fight her own battles. You go, Emilia.


    1. he was letting her do the trails on the first loop and providing emotional support also taking the trails along side. she kept failing…and in the end became messed up. heck he had so much faith that she would pass the trails that he left for the mansion. i dont get your misunderstanding


      1. But only Subaru knows this because he experienced it. From her point of view, it clearly shows that Subaru doesn’t believe in her (which is not true, or at least, not entirely true) and it’s taking agency away from her. At the same time, he wants to suffer in her place and I highly doubt she’d accept it.

        Your thinking implies that you have the omniscience of a reader, not the character itself. From her point of view, Subaru’s all “hey I don’t particularly trust you’ll pass the trials. I mean me who always was on your side”.

        Liked by 1 person

        1. its actually worse then that he pretty much said he will do everything in her place taking all the suffering what should be obvious to her tho is that sub is not over what has happen to rem. he should not be trying to solve others problems when he is still grieving. at the same time this is pretty much the same thing emelia is doing for sanctuary she is not over her past either yet she taking the trails for them ie the suffering of taking it. again this should not be her problem to solve but the half shits there who want someone to save them while not doing a thing to save themselves.


        2. I think it’s not that. It’s because Emilia is not that type of girl…. She’s a lot like Subaru himself (even Wilhelm said once that they truly are master and servant)

          She doesn’t want Subaru to keep getting hurt for her sake. Also she wants Subaru to see how badass she truly is. (Just like Subaru does).
          IMO this was the first time we saw Emilia act as a ruler instead of you know “Subaru’s girl”


          1. yes and she will continue to grow. yeah thats the thing sub already seen her beat petel and win support if he had decided to let her fight the lesser cultist she probably would not be having such a hard time with the trails. look forward to the end of this ark she does help out (*-*)



    the anticipation aside, I still feel like Subaru has learned nothing with the exception of acting more natural in front of the girl he loves. His affection towards her is always over-exagerrated, so that’s the normal Subaru she percieves, when the truth is starting her in the face. She wants to accomplish something. Make it to where she is saving something, running away from the shadow that chases her, instead of facing it directly. Her reason is to save everyone else, instead of herself. Emilia can be just as misguided as Subaru.


  7. I finally got around to finishing this chapter 4 hours after it was released, also thank you so much Chicken-Dono keep up ths good work, on another note things are getting heated with Subaru and literally everyone in one way or another


    1. Nope, sliver is the correct word. It means a small amount of a quality

      An example from the Macmillan dictionary:
      “There was just a small sliver of hope that he would be found alive.”


  8. Don’t you find this funny?
    Subaru is literally confirmed by the author to be the weakest character (in the series). And he took the task of handling them.
    It bugs me how clueless and Slothful and useless all these over-powered warriors and sages are.

    I love the idea of Subaru being their mentor but he’s burdened with too much.

    I can only see this series ending in one of two ways: Subaru failing or Subaru falling.


    1. well Reinhard is protecting the capital and cant really leave because he has to focus his attention there seems to me the council is too scared of losing their strongest fighter and that is the reason he could not take on the elusive mabeast and cultist. probably the same with the sages. the story is focusing on Subaru and roshit has fought in the past again with self made problems be spoilers.


  9. The intimacy between those two warmed my heart a bit while reading this. Maybe I’m just exaggerating. Once again, Thank you chicken.


  10. The feels! OH ALL THE FEELS!

    Thanks Chicken! This short but tender conversation between Subaru and Emilia was great because they are being honest and open with each other for the first time IN A WHILE! Its a great relif after that Roswaal conversation.

    I look forword to reading what Emilia has to say.

    Hope you feel better ; )


  11. I just binged read all this, from the after episode 25 recommendation, and now I have to wait week to week. FML T.T


        1. i’ll explain.
          First, i need you to buy a box of donuts and find a seat. ’cause we’re gon’ be here a while.

          in a land far, far away. there’s a place called Japan. in this magical country a man by the name of Teppei Nagatsuki (or Grey cat), AKA: the author of Re; Zero decided to shock his viewers by adding even more suffering to the camp. This caught a lot of peoples attention. Suffering = plot. and a lot of things are happening. new characters are being introduced and mentioned.
          we’re not sure what’s going to happen.

          Are ya still reading? Good. now please go get me a drink. i’m still not done.

          Arc 4 is still being translated. Do not worry. Chicken-sama simply took a break from this arc for relief.

          Does this sate your curiosity?

            But I shall not say much else.

          1. No, my child. I did not make your day. I simply nurtured ‘the seed’ in fine soil while allowing it to see the truth. The truth is light. My words as blissful water and soil fertilized by the finest of fried chicken.


  12. Yeah… Basically subaru still want to solo all the problems. He forgot what satella said in the tea party for subaru to solve the problem together with people who are dear to him. Of course emilia rejected.

    And for arc 6, chicken, tappei stalled and dragged it again. I don’t recommend u to continue arc 6 if u want rem to wake because there is still no advancement at all. Mostly useless dramas and useless deaths keep repeating.

    1. Like I said. Subaru has learned nothing from the Come to Jesus moment he had at the tea party. He’s still edgelording and finding excuses to give himself worth. He doesn’t even believe his goal is even worth aiming for and he’s breaking himself down again. It’s frustrating. I keep forgetting the he’s only a child.


      1. He’s not edglording, he literally does not what to do. He’s already tried seeking asistance just a few minutes ago until turned out that person who cloud help is corrupt piece of crap.


        1. I agree, but there’s still the nagging detail of keeping Emilia free of any and all harm. He still intends to shoulder it all. Granted, he’s learned that much, and discovered the problem with that way of thinking, but the dragon he’s facing is more complicated, as the standard goes. I was simply stating that his approach hasn’t changed, and he still wasn’t prepared to face Emilia with the resolve of supporting her decisions, albeit just as misguided as his own reasonings.


          1. Although Emilia has some very good things to say next chapter that I wholeheartedly agree with. She’s been watching Subaru kill himself trying to guide her on the safe path, and she hasn’t fared well for her own self-worth. While her reasoning is quite mature, it’s refuted by what Subaru has seen in the other loops. The dragon here is to act according to his wishes, or hers. But yes, I can see I was a bit heavy-handed with calling him an edgelord.

            Sorry for the essay.


          2. i feel like everyone forgotten what sub did on the first loop. yes he rashly jumped in the tomb and got hurt but he was letting emelia take the trails while trying to give her emotional support. it was not enough she failed. he KNOWS emelia cant beat the trails that taking the trails repeatedly will break her. with support or with pressure /even with subs life literally on the line she could not face her past/ he saw the outcome multiple times. she is not mature she is immature like rosswall said. sub knows emelia is to kind too naive too dense while not necessarily bad qualities in a person but you would not want someone like her as a king.

          3. I mean I agree with Emilia’s viewpoint too, but I completely understand where Subaru is coming from considering his position and it’s not fair to say he hasn’t sleeked assistance. That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t continue to do so and Emilia does need help in someway, but it’s find that way doesn’t trample on her agency which is the problem.

          None of that is the reason why she not passing the trials and Roswaal’s simply underestimating her. However Subaru should not take the trials fro her, rather he needs to find out what is holding her back and address that. Subaru needs the help someone who isn’t connected to Roswaal. This situation this to big for him.

          1. i was merely stating subs viewpoint and i know he will do exactly that. her will to beat the trails is rather lacking. she says she wants to accomplish her goals without being to dependent on subaru but what she has done so far has been to really on him. could have helped with the village’s mabeast problem but she let him do it. tied down right..they were going to do a suicide mission could have fought harder to join the fight same later on with the witch cult. do you think rem/ram etc would have been held back that easily? can we honestly blame rosshit in thinking she is a weakling?


          2. Emilia is the one who stated that she wanted to lift the barrier. Her failure to do isn’t relvant and it’s not for her lack of will. Suabru knows this that’s why pains him to her effort come to waste.

            She also never asked Subaru fro help so can’t she has been dependent on him, he got involved on his own violation. This part reason why rejected the broken Emilia in the last loop, becasue to her detriment she doesn’t really rely on anyone.

            She didn’t help with mabeast problem the beginning because Subaru told her she and Rem could handle it so she was putting her trust in him to do just that. Also when he left to go back to forest without telling her, Puck stopped her. I shouldn’t have to tell you why her servants would be reluctant to let Emilia put herself in danger while still a candidate here.

            With the Witch Cult Emilia already beat Guese in one loop, but warned the villagers and setup defenses in village before cult attacked. She safeguard the children while she in the carriage so I don’t what mean by not trying harder.

            So no Roswwal really is full if it, especially his idea of strong will means ruthless destroying everything your path to get what you want. Neither Subaru or Emilia want be like that.


          3. yeah ‘told’ he can handle it thats a lot of faith in someone she just met knowing he is weak, 0 magic and a complete noob. with a maid then complained later that she wanted to go but couldnt because puck stopped her really a spirit dependent on her mana which she could btw make him go back in the crystal. reason why he cant come out now is /guess/. idk on safeguarding being inside the carriage letting others fight then saying again she wanted too/. yes he is being overprotective but she was letting him do that. also the maids do not at this point care at all for emelia their just following orders. she was going with the flow of things letting others do her thinking for her. she is too scared to even try talking with the villagers so idk how she thinks she can get any kinda of support just from beating the trails they are kinda their because of the cult that was targeting her so that cancels that out/.


          4. also the ‘servants’ should be taking orders from emelia not the other way around thats really just showing their disrespect of her and they are all treating her like a child. pucks contract with her is the nail in the coffin. he is her care taker. cant really blame roshit for thinking that of her its pathetic.


  13. it wont really be explained properly but its not just the snow that will attract the rabbits its the delicious large mana reserves of emelia and rosswall. quite literally a self made problem on rosswall part the snow is just making them more obvious to the beast xd

  16. Somebody remembers which chapter it was, where Subaru spoke to Echidona for the 1st time about Roswal?

    I remember her reaction confused me back then. I want to double check whether it makes more sense now with the new intel we have gained so far…


    1. be spoilers at this point but she was making a joke that its the same rosswalls name and sub said their eyes were different etc. rosswall said he remembers dona from 400 years ago.. and we know the rosswalls all had short lives and they only change their middle initial. just think about the facts so far. (./.)


  17. q/a from tappei
    Q: About Sanctuary, it’s been said that halves lose consciousness at the boundary, but couldn’t they get out if a human or someone who wasn’t influenced put them in a dragon carriage or something and carried the sleeping person out? Or is it just mentally impossible before the trials are cleared?
    A: If you tried to take a half out of “Sanctuary”’s barrier, they’d explode. It’s the same reasoning as the animals from Linda Cubed, that explode violently if you take them to another planet. That’s a lie. But, unconscious halves taken outside of the barrier won’t wake up. Their minds are left behind inside the barrier.


      1. idk most likely killing greed archbishop /ironic as fuck/ when sub wants help from the greed witch. it sounds like her soul was stolen. 2nd getting Shaula’s help .forgetting details. 3rd the dragons blood which they can get if emelia becomes king. dona mentioned that in her what if


  18. I’d just like Subaru to finally make Emilia open her heart about her past… but each time he tries to console her, he finds himself into her breasts.
    Well that’s better than a confession, actually.
    Thanks for the chapter, Chicken!
