The popular Isekai anime “Re:Zero — Starting Life in Another World” finished its second season in March, completing its translation of the fourth arc of the original light novel. “Re:Zero” was first published online in 2012, written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shin’ichirtsuka. Soon after, a manga adaptation was released, followed by a well-known anime adaptation in 2016.
The series follows a formula that is similar to that of many Isekai anime. Subaru Natsuki, a young shut-in, is abruptly and unexpectedly transferred to a parallel fantasy realm (via Anime News Network). Subaru’s normal Isekai start is turned upside down when he realises he has been given a particular skill on his own. Subaru’s “Return by Death” ability allows him to return to a previous, randomly chosen moment in time after dying, similar to how checkpoints in video games work. Through repetition and forethought, the ordinary Subaru is able to overcome conflict using this talent.
Following the conclusion of the anime’s second season, viewers are now wondering whether the series will continue to adapt the novels. Much of the novel’s events have yet to be adapted due to the anime’s four-year head start. With that in mind, here’s what we know about Season 3 of “Re:Zero.”
When Will the Third Season of Re:zero Be Released?
There have been no official news about the release of “Re:Zero” Season 3 as of yet. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the preceding season, which was issued in two parts, was delayed. As a result, it’s difficult to say when White Fox, the anime’s producers, will resume their translation of the series. The Cinemaholic, for example, predicts a release date of 2025, but this is simply a guess.
During a 2020 interview with Crunchyroll, Sho Tanaka, one of the series’ creators, hinted at the potential of a Season 3, saying, “After you’ve finished watching this season, I’m convinced you’ll be clamouring for a third. Please keep an eye out for it.” With that in mind, “Re:Zero” fans may rest easy knowing that a third season of the famous Isekai anime is a distinct possibility.
Who Will Be Among the Cast of Re:zero Season 3?
If Season 3 of “Re:Zero” is released, it is likely that the show will keep a large chunk of its original cast. Subaru is voiced in Japanese by Yûsuke Kobayashi, according to IMDb (“Dr. Stone,” “Food Wars”). Sean Chiplock provides the English voice for him (“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu”).
In addition, the original voice actors for the supporting cast are likely to reprise their roles. Emilia (Rie Takahashi/Kayli Mills), Ram (Rie Murakawa/Ryan Bartley), and Rem (Inori Minase/Brianna Knickerbocker) are among the characters involved.
While Season 3 of “Re:Zero” is unlikely to have any major cast or crew changes, fans may expect to hear some new voices as the series introduces new characters. Unfortunately, no formal announcements about the cast of Season 3 have been issued. In this situation, fans will have to wait to see if “Re:Zero” makes any fresh cast decisions.
What Is Re:zero Season 3’s Plot?
Because Season 2 of “Re:Zero” only covers “Arc 4” of the original light novels, White Fox still has plenty of “Re:Zero” to adapt (via Re:Zero Wiki). Subaru and Emilia’s most recent storyline followed them as they attempted to save the residents of Sanctuary who were trapped behind a mysterious magical barrier.
Subaru and his companions battle to unite the Royal Election Camps in Watergate City in order to confront the Witch Cultists who have taken power in “Arc 5,” where the anime’s storey is slated to pick up. At this time, it’s unclear whether the anime will adapt simply this arc or go on to adapt the rest of the series.
Season 3 will, however, undoubtedly include many of the storey elements that constitute “Re:Zero.” In other words, “Re:Zero” will continue the series’ lengthy heritage of cruelty and psychological anguish, as Subaru’s Return By Death ability proves to be both a blessing and a curse time and time again. Any more information, on the other hand, will most likely be saved until the show’s (hopefully) upcoming release.
