posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Re: Life in a different world from zero (Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) television anime series began streaming the sixth and the seventh episodes of the Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Break Time spinoff series on May 17 and May 24, respectively. The spinoff anime short series airs after each episode of the main anime's airing. The sixth episode will be available online until May 31 at 6:00 p.m. JST, and the seventh will be available until June 7 at 6:00 p.m. JST.
In the beginning of the sixth episode, Emilia gets angry at Subaru for saying that he smuggled himself into the country in front of Roswaal. Afterward, she asks him if he really is all right with being a house guest, and he explains that it's the best choice for him, since he doesn't know left from right in this world. However, Emilia seems unsatisfied that she hasn't been able to show her thanks to him. Subaru says that she told him her name and that her smile is the best reward, even going so far as to make the new abbreviation EMT: Emilia-tan Maji Tenshi (Emilia is seriously an angel).
Despite this, Emilia insists that he let her do anything he wants to thank him. He reaches his hand out to her hair without thinking, but explains that he's happy with just that as a reward. Emilia asks Subaru if he has a thing for body hair since he had petted Puck's fur as well, but Subaru asks her not to categorize the hair on her head as body hair since it's so beautiful and silver.
Puck appears and jokingly accuses Subaru of petting another's hair, and even forbids Subaru from petting his fur again because he is a cheating man. Emilia takes Puck seriously, and asks Subaru if he is a cheating man. He denies it and says that he only has eyes for Emilia. When he asks for "father" Puck's blessing, Puck says he will never give his daughter to Subaru. While petting him, Subaru pleads for his approval.
In the beginning of the seventh episode, Subaru confirms that he and Beatrice have formed a contract, although Beatrice insists it was against her will. Subaru asks her to teach him some things, but she says she has no reason to tell him anything, because even though they've formed a contract, she isn't kind enough to do so. However, Subaru denies this, saying that Beatrice has plenty of kindness in her heart. Subaru asks her why there are so many books in Roswaal's library, to which Beatrice replies that it's because Roswaal is the strongest magic-user in the palace. Subaru comments that Roswaal really is something, despite his weird looks, to which Beatrice agrees.
Subaru begins to talk about how it's amazing that one person could manage all the books in the library, but keeps throwing in the word "loli" into his sentences, making Beatrice angry. Subaru tells her not to be so touchy, and suggests eating small fish to get calcium, which will also help her get taller as well. He also mentions how his and Emilia's heights are perfect for the hero and heroine of a romantic comedy, but then laments that he didn't say that line around her.
Subaru proceeds to call Beatrice "Betty" without her permission, which irritates her. He insists that it's an important proof of friendliness between partners, but Beatrice says that she's not his partner. Subaru gives up and tries to think up a new nickname for her, which makes Beatrice angry once again.
The shorts feature the main television anime's cast members, including Yūsuke Kobayashi as Subaru Natsuki, Rie Takahashi as Emilia, and Yumi Uchiyama as Puck, and Satomi Arai as Beatrice.
Minoru Ashina (Lord Marksman and Vanadis ONA, Boku, Otaryman, Agriculture Angel Baraki) is serving as director, scriptwriter, and producer of the shorts at Studio Puyukai. Minoru Takehara (Lord Marksman and Vanadis ONA) is designing the super-deformed characters and is also credited with the animation.
The Re: Life in a different world from zero anime premiered on April 3. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
