Suddenly, high school student Subaru Natsuki has been summoned to another world on the way back from the convenience store. With the biggest crisis of his life being summoned to another world, and with no sign of the one who summoned him, things become even worse when he is attacked. But when he is saved by a mysterious, silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru cooperates with her to return the favor. When they finally manage to get a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and killed by someone. Subaru then awakens in the place he was summoned and notices he gained the ability "Returns by Death" and has become a helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death? Written by jCafe

User Reviews

An entertaining anime, No way you could waste your money on this!!!
19 February 2017 | by michaelsoft-41052See all my reviews

This anime obviously has some flaws which may seem bad but if you can get pass the flaws, it is very entertaining! Though the main character is not particularly likable i found that the character Rem seemed likable due to her having a personality rather than a robot programmed to have a personality. The thing i like is that the main protagonist Subaru has the power to go back in time every time he dies. This may seem boring as there might not be much thrill but IT DOES HAVE THRILLS!!! Every time a main character dies, usually Subaru dies as well to go back but the way they present the death is very thrilling. Another thing i like is how they focus on how traumatic an event is so that every time Subaru comes back, he has gained knowledge on how to defeat enemies or has mental trauma on what has happened. One of my personal favorite episode episode 18 is (without spoiling too much) one of my favorite anime episodes of all time and it is really touching though it is basically only dialogue but i totally loved it.

Overall, I would rate this anime 9/10 as the flaws kept it away from the 10/10
