Quick Summary of Re:ZERO Season 2 Part 2 Episode 42
In Re:ZERO Season 2 Part 2 Episode 42, “A Journey Through Memories,” Emilia and Echidna took a stroll down memory lane — Emilia’s memories, that is. The two come upon child Emilia and Fortuna in a small cabin at the base of a tree. Echidna continued insulting Emilia. The effort, however, felt half-hearted. Was even Echidna starting to warn up to the incredible adorableness that was little Emilia? Or was Echidna curious about what had happened? Doesn’t she know? Little Emilia seemed like a happy child. However, she felt suspicious that Fortuna and the other elves kept her locked in the little cabin all day. Small “fairies” overjoyed her when they came to show her a secret way out of the cabin. The first thing she did with her freedom? Started investigating that Fortuna was really up to! What Emilia learned was startling, to say the least.
Irina’s Turn to Host!
Emilia used the memories she revisited in this episode to prepare for the trial. Judging by the ending scene, she’s going to need all the preparation she can muster. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.
Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime and I are collaborating to review Re:ZERO Season 2 Part 2, and this week, it’s Irina’s turn to host! You can jump straight to the review on her site by clicking here.
The child version of Emilia dominated this episode. Yes, she’s every bit as kind and gentle as the adult Emilia. The major difference? I know this is hard to believe, but her pout is even more adorable! However, her stealth skills leave a lot to be desired. Saying “Sneaky sneak” while trying to be sneaky is surprisingly ineffective! Though the elves didn’t seem to notice.
All through the episode, something bothered me. Where’s the terrible secret that’s haunted Emilia? What memory is so painful that she had to hide it? I think we got a hint in the last scene of this episode. If that hint pans out, well, it could explain a lot!
