Re: Zero - Starting Life in Another World has made its name in the light fantasy world of anime. If you’ve watched the show, you know why these 10 hilarious anime memes will help you smile through the pain!
Re: Zero - Starting Life in Another World is a light fantasy anime where the protagonist, Subaru Natsuki, gets transported to another world where he faces a tough situation. On the day he arrives, he tries to save Emilia but dies and re-enters the world again. He gets stuck in a loop until he saves her and decides to help her. He also realizes that he can break the loop by changing the outcome.
This series is a mix of drama, adventure, and leaping through time.
The concept of ‘transporting to another world’ became famous for various reasons. Perhaps, it might help start over one’s life without newfound abilities. Or escape into a different world to create a different life without much effort.
The dark and emotional elements of the series, along with the drama and adventure have helped the anime community to come up with some really good memes that hilariously represent the anime.
So, here are the 10 hilarious anime memes to help you smile through the pain:
1. Do it for Rem
Subaru went through a lot. Alone in a different world, with a repeating loop of problems that he tries hard to get out of, Subaru got acquainted with Rem and Ram.
Rem becomes one of the people who initially tried to kill him, but to no avail, as Subaru quickly figured it out and solved their problems. After sorting it out, they established a friendly relationship. This Re: Zero anime meme accurately explains their relationship. If you’ve watched the series, you know how far Subaru goes to save Rem.
2. Fear Rem before you Love Emilia
Rem is one of the ‘waifus’ of the anime world. If you’ve watched the show, you’ll understand this Re: Zero anime meme. Rem is soft and gentle but sometimes, her sweet personality is just a façade.
She can kill you without batting an eye. Nevertheless, being one of Subaru’s love interests, this meme makes total sense. Although the main couples are Subaru and Emilia, Rem wishes that Subaru would choose her. So, if you say you love Emilia over Rem, be prepared to face a terrifying Rem.
3. The Savage Maid Sisters
This light novel series has a good amount of humor that balances out the darker elements of the story. This anime meme will get you cackling. Rem and Ram are softies who look like no harm, but deep down?
They are sweet but savage and very sarcastic when it comes to Subaru. He’s an unknown being who came to help Emilia for good. But sometimes, with all the dying and leaping through time and trying to save the world, a little humor does good and the maid sisters are here to provide that.
4. Expectation vs. Reality
Isekai Quartet may have been a much happier version that held a lot of expectations for Re: Zero- Starting in Another World. But the reality is, this anime will make you sad.
Though this anime has a good plot and good character development, the plot shows suffering, suffering, and more suffering, especially for Subaru. It does have humor but nothing beats the pain of Subaru not being able to solve the problems that fall onto his lap.
5. Episode One vs. Episode Eighteen
A sad but true anime meme of Re: Zero, the initial episodes of the series, especially Episode 1, seemed like it was just easing us into the world of Subaru’s true suffering.
The unexpected twists in the story and his lack of knowledge made it harder to watch. Despite that, the story picks up quite well and gave us a good bunch of anime memes to create.
6. Season 2 but With More Suffering
Another one of the suffering memes that will make you smile through the pain. The first season was so good, it had to have a Season 2. The first season was mostly about Subaru establishing relationships, a harem, and helping Emilia succeed.
The show had more to go on in the second season, especially since Emilia had to win and fight against a lot of enemies.
7. Rem and Ram, Our Last Two Brain Cells
This hilarious meme actually describes every one of us who loves Rem and Ram. Though Emilia is the main love interest, Rem and Ram hold a special place in our hearts.
These two adorable and formidable sisters are also maids and possible love interests for Subaru. Their cuteness will make us smile through Subaru’s pain. They are one of the best characters on the show.
8. “You’ll Get Used to It”
Rejection hurts but this meme will make you laugh. There’s a handful of side characters who get rejected by the protagonist and Ichigo and Rem are a few of them.
Darling in the Franxx released in 2018 where one of the main characters is rejected by the protagonist. This anime meme was born out of the same situation that Rem and Subaru went through. With Ichigo being rejected, Rem is probably one of the only girls who can console her.
9. What I Watched vs What I Got
When the Re: Zero release, it looked like a cool anime just like Sword Art Online and other Isekai Anime, but turned out to be completely different.
The trailer made it look like an adventurous anime where the protagonist embarks on a journey to defeat villains. Turns out that Subaru himself had a huge surprise after transporting into another world. He probably decided to start over but with him constantly dying, it started taking a toll on him.
10. Emilia is a No-Show
This amusing anime meme describes Emilia’s role in the series in a nutshell. Emilia is beautiful and powerful and let’s admit it, we all wanted to see her more in the show, especially with Subaru.
Subaru grew a harem as the series progressed and Emilia’s screen time also decreased. She also didn’t get a lot of character development which added to the disappointment. Despite that, the show is still good as ever and definitely worth the watch.
