In Re:ZERO Season 2 episode 38 (or 13), “The Sounds That Make You Want to Cry,” we reach the end of the second season. And what an ending it was! Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime and I collaborated to review this season, and it’s Irina’s turn to host the full review. If you’re the impatient sort, you can jump straight to the review here!
At the end of the previous episode, Subaru had barely escaped a one-sided contract with Echidna, but only because of the intervention of the other witches like Minerva. The situation was very tense, but this is Re:ZERO. It can always get worse.
Now, in Re:ZERO Season 2 Episode 38, Satella arrived.
Echidna was surprised, and a little miffed, that Satella could even enter her “castle of dreams.” Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
The buildup was fantastic. For the entire run of Re:ZERO, Satella cast a long shadow of uncertain terror over Subaru. She’s the one who gave him Return by Death. It was her hand he felt on his heart when he tried to tell others about that power. And now she stood before him and the other witches.
I had a few vague ideas of what might happen.
Satella, the Witch of Envy, did none of those things. I guess that’s why she’s a witch. Her thoughts and motivations are ever beyond a mere human like me!
