――Todd Fang was a soldier of the Vollachian Empire, Private First-Class his rank.
He was the fiancé of Katya Aurélie, the younger sister of his colleague, Jamal Aurélie. Starting with when he was dispatched to the Buddheim Jungle in the east of the Empire, by way of the battle with the rebel army in the Fortress City of Guaral, he had currently taken up the official position of subordinate to the Spirit Eater, General First-Class Arakiya.
The siege of the Imperial Capital Lupugana, commenced by rebels who all simultaneously rose in revolt.
In this battle too, he participated as a foot soldier, fighting hard, wielding his weapon as he valiantly fought the rebels in order to protect the citizens of the Imperial Capital―― And above all, to protect his fiancée, Katya.
His true identity was that of an existence treated as abhorrent in the Vollachian Empire, that of a werewolf; subject to historic discrimination and persecution, he came to establish his own way of life as a being incompatible with others.
That was unmistakably the werewolf of the Empire known as Todd Fang.
――I have no intention of telling you anything more than that, man.

Also, I made a little cool thing with this chapter. Feel free to watch!
Oh cool tnx wct
todd is the official heroine of re zero
this is cinema.
MF really doesnt want to be undertood
Wow a human translation on this huge gargantuan dictionary of a chapter, that’s real dedication. Appreciation.
Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy, but also didn’t they reveal more about his backstory in some side stories? Why wouldn’t he just write about what he already put in those
Later boy, later…..
Christ I am glad they did not. Not every action someone takes need to be the result of what happened during their childhood. Sometimes it is best to just let the actions they take in the present to speak for themselves not every question needs to be answered.
Amen. Todd is a goat
The only other thing we know about him is that he used to be a bandit who betrayed his fellow crooks to try to get into the army. Not really on the why and how he got on this path in the first place.
Todd gets a named chapter probably means hes dead.
Also the last line (I have no …) could be some people talking about why they should resurrect Todd
I haven’t read the entire Web/Light Novel series of “Re: Zero”. Everything up to Arc 5, I saw in the anime, but in my experience, there are very few named chapters that contain the death of the character. Outside of the Ginunhive chapters & Chisha Gold, most of them are just the character’s backstory, but not their death.
Todd is so cool he can break the 4th wall
Is the 4th wall from ORV
Its a literary term that has existed for centuries
Thank you for the translation. Tappei was COOKING.
Man I love Todd. Bro refuses to elaborate and instead chooses to break the fourth wall. Thanks for the translation! Can’t wait for the rest.
Thanks for the TL! Breaking the fourth wall heh, Todd…
The best Re:Zero chapter of all time.
I was so hype seeing a double release…
Man cut off his own obituary because he didn’t want anyone knowing any details about him paranoid to the end
Pretty sure it’s not an obituary until we see him die. He’s been pretty damn hard to kill since his first appearance, so I wouldn’t expect him do die from drowning.
tx for translate <3
I get the feeling Todd isn’t dead yet. He has serious “to driven to die” energy radiating off him. I’m not writing it off that he’ll die in the future, but he definitely isn’t a character you can just kill off in the background.
I mean even if he is dies the current disaster gives him a 1-up (which neither him nor Subaru thought about during the death match) and then he’s on the zombie team and we have immortal Todd vs everyone
I was really hoping for another chapter
Well you not only got one, you got the best damn Re:Zero chapter ever. Cheers.
I always thought that a chapter named after a character will be very long but this chapter is the shortest so far. Also it didn’t really reveal anything new about Todd. This looks like a troll chapter lol.
Oy is the author making Todd speak to us at the end? Fourth wall?
He’s a zombie now. Oh God.
Todd is betting so much on being the victim of prejudice, I wonder what he says when he faces the full Subaru gang: the near-extinct onis, werecats, and spitting image of Satan – the half-elf?
There’s being a victim of prejudice, and then there’s ‘if anyone finds out what you really are, you’ll be executed cause of some shit your kind did hundreds of years ago.’
I feel like in the empire That kind of thinking should technically apply to Emilia as well but everyone in the rebellion giving her a pass because she saved them from dragons
Am I the only one who HATES Todd? Guy is a total psychopath, at least the archbishops are just loony tunes. Todd is a straight up bastard.
It is said that Todd traumatizes Subaru more than the Sin Archbishops.
Yes, it has. Subaru was the one who said it.
Yeah. I’m not a fan of Todd Fang. He’s such a manipulative sociopath, and I question how he has the ability to feel love for anyone, let alone Katya. He’s been a great villain for these two arcs though.
> I question how he has the ability to feel love for anyone, let alone Katya.
He probably sees Katya as his ideal girl, at least going off of Death Unto the Weak, No Mercy 4. Why that’s the case will likely be elaborated on later in this arc, though it’s not hard to speculate.
Even more of a dangerous guy now
Such a short chapter but it not only gets the job done, but also accomplishes even more
Yeah. It definitely shows that Todd doesn’t even want the readers to know what made him the way he is.
