Muse Vietnam announced on Sunday that it will stream Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Director's Cut, an updated version of the Re:Zero television anime's first season. The stream will begin later tonight at 7:30 p.m. GMT +7 with the first episode, with a new episode every following day.
The new edit of the first 25-episode season adds some new footage and reworks the episodes to run in a one-hour timeslot. The anime aired in Japan starting on January 1. Animax Asia began airing the anime in Southeast Asia on June 15.
The 25-episode first anime season of Tappei Nagatsuki's Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- light novel series premiered in April 2016. Animax Asia premiered the anime in January 2017.
The second season premiered in Japan on July 8, with the second half premiering in January 2021. The anime's second season was delayed from April to July. The staff explained that "the global issues of the COVID-19 coronavirus illness have had a big effect on the production" of the show. Animax Asia aired a simulcast of the first half of the second season in Southeast Asia that premiered on July 9.
The anime has inspired two original video anime (OVA) volumes, titled Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Memory Snow and Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World - The Frozen Bond. Animax Asia aired both anime on July 2 and 3.
