Episode 1: I will remember everything that happened to me

Re:Creators: A Broken Tablet Wreaks Havoc

In Re:Creators episode 1, “I will remember everything that happened to me,” Souta Mizushino tries to watch his favorite anime, only to have his tablet glitch-out and pull him into the anime world. There, Selesia Upitiria, the main character, fights a strange mage, Gunpuku no Himegimi. Can Mizushino survive in between such titans? Especially with a mech in the mix? Even if he does, what will he do when the battle spills into our world? Why does Meteora Österreich use modern optically guided missiles if she’s a mage? And just who’s side is she on?
