Re:ZERO trailer teases fans about the upcoming season
The most exciting update that left fans in a tidal wave of delirium was the show’s trailer. The clip overall teased a much-awaited story arc of Subaru Natsuki and his need for help.
It begins ominously by featuring Subaru navigating a dark cave. His heavy breaths echoed all around the dark place until a woman’s voice interrupted him. Then, a woman with long pale hair came to greet him.
As the trailer goes on, the return of fans’ favorite characters was revealed. Satella, along with her other comrades which fans met in season one will stand by Subaru’s side. Furthermore, the blue-haired best girl, Rem, will return after she became a staple of Re:Zero. There is certainly no way that the second season could go on without her.
Re:ZERO season 2 plot
As per Crunchyroll, Re:ZERO season 2’s synopsis reads:
“Even after dying countless times, Subaru finally ended the threat of the White Whale and defeated the Witch Cult’s Sin Archbishop representing sloth, Petelgeuse Romaneeconti. But only shortly after overcoming a tragic ending and reuniting with his beloved Emilia, Subaru learns that Rem has been erased from this world, having fallen victim to the White Whale’s Fog of Elimination in the midst of Subaru’s death loop. With the White Whale now gone, Subaru and Emilia are forced to confront a reality they never dreamed would happen.”
