"Subaru has been thirsting for revenge since Rem was killed by Betelgeuse 20 years ago. Information on the Witch Cult comes in......!"
"New Chapter 2" will be added to "Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World Lost in Memories" (a.k.a. "Re:zeros"), the RPG for smartphones.
Details about "if" story, which has not been revealed so far, have finally been announced!
We will introduce various information, which was unveiled in "New Chapter 2 Before Release Special Program", with the views of Kobayashi Yusuke, who appeared in the program and plays the role of Subaru! The information is about the prologue part, where the unprecedentedly desperate background was revealed, story tailor, gacha, events, etc.
What does Kobayashi Yusuke think of "Subaru after 20 years"? The comments from the author Nagatsuki Tappei have been arrives! For "New Chapter 2", any information has not been revealed except for depicting "the story about 20 years after".
However, this time, the information about the prologue part was unveiled at the beginning! In addition, it was read aloud by Kobayashi Yusuke, who plays the role of Subaru, which conveys the atmosphere of the episode.
First of all, the main attraction of "Re:Zeros" is that you can experience "the crossroad the may have existed" or "the story that may have existed" other than reliving the TV anime. "New Chapter 2" is also developed as one of such "if" stories.
For this episode, Kobayashi Yusuke mentioned the theme of "What is happening after the revenge?" and the finale that even Subaru was not able to expect. He commented that he wanted us to look forward to such aspects.
As a preparation for his role, he contemplated on "the feelings of bearing a severe grudge against someone for 20 years". He thought such feelings should not last so long, and he imaged Subaru being thoroughly exhausted rather than being insanely mad.
For the time length of 20 years, he said that he attempted to look for the other way of expressing it than lowering his tone of voice. If he stuck to low tone of voice, his variation of performance would be limited, so he demonstrated "Subaru after 20 years" by adding contrast to the expression of weariness.
You can catch a glimpse of "Subaru after 20 years" in the prologue part mentioned above, so please watch it if you haven't yet.
