This past March, the second season of the popular Isekai anime “Re:Zero — Starting Life in Another World” finally came to a nearby, wrapping up its adaptation of the original light clever’s fourth arc. Originally composed by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shin’ichirō Ōtsuka, “Re:Zero” first released online in 2012. A manga adaptation released soon after, followed by the well-known anime adaptation in 2016.
The series follows a similar formula to many Isekai anime. It centers around Subaru Natsuki, a teenage hermit who is unexpectedly and inexplicably transported to an alternate fantasy world (via Anime News Organization). However, this average Isekai starting is undermined when Subaru discovers that he was also spontaneously granted a special ability. This power, “Return by Death,” allows Subaru to get back to a past, randomly resolved moment upon death, similar to how designated spots capability in a computer game. Utilizing this ability, the overall average Subaru is able to beat struggle through redundancy and planning.
Now, following the recent conclusion of the anime’s subsequent season, fans are interested as to whether the show will proceed with its adaptation of the books. With a four-year head start on the anime, a significant part of the books’ occasions have yet to be adapted. Considering that, this is what we know so far about “Re:Zero” Season 3.
When will Re:Zero Season 3 release?
At the current moment, no official announcements have been made regarding the release of “Re:Zero” Season 3. The past season, which was released in two separate parts, had been delayed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Thus, it’s hard to gauge when the anime’s makers, White Fox, will proceed with their adaptation of the series. Sources, for example, The Cinemaholic foresee a release date as late as 2025, however this is just speculative.
However, Sho Tanaka, one of the series’ makers, has alluded to the chance of a Season 3 during a 2020 meeting with Crunchyroll, saying, “I’m certain that you’ll all be clamoring for a third season whenever you’ve finished watching this one. Please anticipate it.” In light of that, “Re:Zero” fans can sit comfortably knowing there’s a decent chance that they’ll see a third season of the popular Isekai anime.
Who will be in Re:Zero Season 3’s cast?
Assuming “Re:Zero” Season 3 emerges, all things considered, the show will retain a decent piece of its original cast. According to IMDb, Subaru is voiced in Japanese by Yûsuke Kobayashi (“Dr. Stone,” “Food Wars”). He is voiced in English by Sean Chiplock (“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Nature,” “Pokemon: Analyst Pikachu”).
Furthermore, the original voice actors for the supporting cast are also expected to make a return. This incorporates Emilia (Rie Takahashi/Kayli Factories), Ram (Rie Murakawa/Ryan Bartley), and Rem (Inori Minase/Brianna Knickerbocker).
While it is far-fetched that Season 3 of “Re:Zero” would make any abrupt changes in cast or group, fans can probably hope to hear some new voices as the series presents new characters. Unfortunately, no official statements regarding Season 3’s cast have been made. In this case, fans should wait to check whether any new cast decisions can be anticipated from “Re:Zero.”
What’s the plot of Re:Zero Season 3?
Since Season 2 of “Re:Zero” simply concealed to “Arc 4” of the original light books, there is still bounty more “Re:Zero” left for White Fox to adapt (via Re:Zero Wiki). The latest arc followed Subaru and Emilia as they attempt to protect the inhabitants of Sanctuary who are trapped via a secretive magical barrier.
“Arc 5,” where the anime’s story is set to get, follows Subaru and his allies as they battle to join the Royal Political decision Camps in Watergate City to defeat the Witch Cultists who have taken control. Whether the anime is supposed to adapt just this arc or proceed with much further into the series is unknown at the moment.
However, fans can be certain that Season 3 will incorporate many of the story components which characterize “Re:Zero.” In other words, “Re:Zero” will proceed with its for some time held tradition of brutality and psychological torture, as Subaru’s Return By Death ability consistently wins over be both a gift and a revile. Any further details, however, are probable being saved for the show’s (confident) impending release.
