――When the Cloud Dragon flew into the Imperial Capital, leaving Madelyn behind, Emilia had decided to follow Cecilus, who was chasing after it, but upon falling behind, she had chosen to hide herself within the city.

Emilia: [Hey, you there! Take this girl and step back! I’ve frozen her limbs so that she won’t struggle, so please handle her gently!]

She did not forget to entrust Madelyn, frozen white, to a rebel carefully examining the situation.

Madelyn showed no signs of waking up, being encased in ice, and since her limbs had been glaciated potently, there was minimal concern about her causing a disturbance in the headquarters.

Emilia: […The atmosphere feels reaaally unpleasant.]

After leaving Madelyn in someone else’s care, Emilia created an ice staircase and climbed over the city walls. She felt a sense of unease from the atmosphere that pervaded the Imperial Capital.

The air itself should not have changed between inside and outside the city walls, but there was certainly a prickling sensation on the skin which threatened to unsettle Emilia’s heart.

However, she could not afford to be defeated by the prickling sensation in her heart, she could not afford to back down.

Emilia: [Mezoreia and Cecilus have both gone towards the castle.]

The battle with the Cloud Dragon Mezoreia would have ended in Emilia’s complete defeat if Cecilus had not intervened. Thanks to Cecilus, Emilia had managed to hold on, but she was constantly reflecting on the fact that she had almost been defeated.

Emilia: [Even though I asked everyone to come all the way to Vollachia.]

Of course, everyone was worried about Subaru and Rem, who had been blown all the way over to Vollachia. If she were to say something like that now, no one would blame Emilia alone.

Nevertheless, Emilia had a responsibility as the most important person in the Camp.

Emilia had to be aware of Roswaal’s importance as her supporter, as well as another, different kind of importance. She needed to acknowledge the importance of everyone’s efforts in order to fulfill her own wishes.


Emilia: [I have to work really hard to fulfill what I said I could do.]

After climbing over the tall city walls, Emilia finally entered the streets of the Imperial Capital, witnessing the cityscape.

Though quite different from the atmosphere of the Royal Capital of Lugunica, being the capital city of a major nation, the orderly and tidy layout of buildings as well as its functional areas could be perceived as the result of well thought out urban planning, even from Emilia’s viewpoint.

The Emperor of the Empire had certainly had a clear vision for the future, endeavoring to make this city and country a better place.

Emilia: [Even if you try so hard, this is how it turns out, huh…]

The impression someone would get from the cityscape of the Imperial Capital and its current condition, however, were strikingly distinct.

Regardless of what intentions the Emperor held when it came to governing the Empire, the answer that a part of the people of the Empire had come up with laid within this rebellion of theirs. A rebellion on whose side was Emilia as a supporter.

While one could say that it had happened gradually or as a result of circumstances, Emilia had not sided with them thoughtlessly; she had listened to them, discussed it with her comrades, and thus made the decision.

Of course, she did not think it would be best to take the Emperor’s life, as was the wish of many traitors, but rather to capture him and negotiate with Abel and others.

However, Emilia’s hopes and wishes were betrayed in a way she could never have imagined by the events that occurred in the Imperial Capital.

Emilia: […What?]

In the far distance, near the magnificent building called the Crystal Palace located at the very back of the Imperial Capital, one could see a gigantic figure colliding with the Cloud Dragon that had taken off from the battlefield.

The collision between two giant entities further increased the danger of the siege of the Imperial Capital by one or two levels, but there was something else that had surprised her even more.

――At the Crystal Palace, where a fierce battle was raging, and all over the Imperial Capital, pale figures attacking the fleeing people were appearing in large numbers.

Emilia: [Oh no… Hk.]

The moment Emilia came to see their existence, a chill ran up her spine.

The sensation that Emilia felt was not just a physical disgust, but it was probably her nature as a Spiritual Arts User that caused her to be repulsed by them.

Spirits were natural entities that emerged into existence, desired by the world.

On the other hand, what had caused her to shiver were unnatural entities, impure beings that the world did not recognize, a fact Emilia intuited as a Spiritual Arts User.

At the same time, Emilia had realized that the internal conflict of the Empire, painful and sad as it was, had transformed into a fierce competition for survival between not just humans, but also non-human entities.

Emilia: [――――]

The moment she intuited such, the significance of that battlefield changed within Emilia.

To make the most of what was available, Emilia lifted both arms and created ice stairs haphazardly within range of the star-shaped city walls surrounding the Imperial Capital.

By creating ice stairs wherever she could, Emilia turned the situation of being unable to enter or leave without passing through the city gates into a situation where it was possible to enter or leave from places other than the gates, thereby increasing the escape routes.

Emilia: [Everyone! Run to the wall! You don’t have to go to the gate, you can escape from there!]

Calling out in a loud voice, Emilia descended from the city walls into the city.

As soon as she did, a pale being appeared as if growing up from the ground, reaching out to Emilia. With a blow from a sword of frost, Emilia struck it down without mercy.

Emilia: [I think you guys also have your own goals, but…]

Emilia could not be persuaded to sit down for a dialogue that meekly when being attacked by others without explanation.

The ones who stood in her way were all dressed in the military uniforms of the Imperial Soldiers, and upon being struck by Emilia’s attacks as she broke through them, their bodies shattered and collapsed like pottery. However, their broken bodies immediately began to stick back together, and they returned to their original state, unable to be fully defeated.

Emilia: [If that’s the case, then――.]

Even at a disadvantage, Emilia showed her boldness by not retreating there.

Against an opponent who would get up even if crushed, Emilia steered towards icing the opponent with sword blows, rather than smashing them with sword blows.

Emilia: [Teya! Taa! Urya urya urya!]

Against one, then two, then three, then four “enemies” that rose up, Emilia kicked the walls, the ground, and the streets of the Imperial Capital in all directions as she jumped around and laid waste with her assault.

The “enemies” who were attacked by Emilia and had their crushed parts iced over were, as one would expect, unable to have their wounds repaired to their original state. However, there were also some “enemies” who destroyed the iced parts themselves and overwrote it with regeneration.

Emilia: [Well then, I’ll take that approach away from them!]

If the opponent responded, then Emilia would further surpass their response.

If freezing a part of the body did not work, she assailed the “enemies” by freezing the entire body. Of course, the strength employed against one “enemy” would be greater, but there was nothing she could do about that.

Her missing endurance was made up for with determination, and Emilia cleared the streets of the whole area.

Emilia: [Go, quickly! If you go now, they won’t get in your way, run, run!]

Emilia guided the people of the Imperial Capital, who were slow to escape, by making the streets she had cleared easy to navigate. In the meantime, she herself ran in the opposite direction of those running toward the city walls, running full speed on the road deeper into the city.

Emilia: [Someone is committing all this badness…!!]

The “enemies” appearing one after another were caused by an unnatural phenomenon.

Meaning that someone’s will, like magic or curse arts, was involved in raising them. If the caster was there, there would basically be no resolution unless they were stopped.

There was a limit to the extent of what Emilia could freeze.

Fortunately, Emilia, possessing a freakishly large store of Mana, was still able to move, but after fighting Madelyn, with Mezoreia partaking as well, plus creating the stairways to the inside and outside of the city walls just a moment ago, and then battling the “enemies” that appeared one after another, she was still feeling tired.

Emilia: [Even though being a little bit more energetic than others is supposed to be my strong point…!]

As she felt pity for her lack of strength, Emilia ran up the streets of the Imperial Capital.

She could move faster if she aimed straight for the Crystal Palace, but she had to protect the people who were being attacked by “enemies” along the way. This was the limit to her speed as she was helping them.

While she was thinking about this, she saw another group of people struggling to stay out of sight of the “enemy” on the street――,

Emilia: [I’ll make a path, right away!]

There were four “enemies” who seemed like they would get in the way of the group going out into the street; the moment they turned their back, Emilia leapt down from the roof of the building, and before they could turn around to see her, her ice blade flashed――.

Emilia: [――――]

The bluish-white, glistening ice sword cleaved the atmosphere, transforming the four “enemies” who were hit by the slash into frozen statues.

After making sure her “enemies”, frozen with a look of surprise on their faces, were properly iced, Emilia converted the ice sword in her hand to Mana and turned toward the other side of the street.

Emilia: [You’re safe now! If you use the ice as a landmark, then you can make it out of here!]

???: [T-thank you very much. You saved us.]

Emilia called out to them, and a voice answered from the other side.

Emilia raised her hand in response to their thanks and thought about resuming going to the center of the city once the people had crossed the road safely.

That was what she had thought, but――,

Emilia: [Wow, that’s a lot of children…]

Opening her eyes wide, in Emilia’s field of view a group of nearly twenty people had slipped out from the other side of the street. Moreover, most of them were children about ten years of age, all sporting dark hair.

Emilia blinked her eyes at the very unusual group, as black hair itself was rare.

There were too many kids whose faces did not resemble one another for them all to be of the same family, which made her think that maybe that was not the case.

Then, one of the few adults in the group waved at Emilia,

???: [Heyhey, you really saved us! At any rate, we’ve got our hands full just trying to run and hide. I was having trouble deciding whether to play the decoy myself or not.]

Emilia: [Is that so? In that case, I’m glad you didn’t. It should be fine from here on out, so everyone should work together and not be impatient.]

???: [Understood. Miss, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Well then, Wife-san! Miss Katya!]

Katya: [D-don’t call out so loud… It’ll be bad if those guys show up again…!]

It was a woman at the end of the line who thus answered the call of the blond, young man with a cheerful smile. Upon seeing a small woman riding in a wheelchair, Emilia was slightly surprised.

Emilia: [Besides the one Subaru made, this is the first I’ve seen.]

Wheelchairs were useful for transporting people with impaired legs, but that kind of tool was rarely seen. Emilia also knew about them because she had seen the actual wheelchair that Subaru had gone to the trouble of designing and assembling for the sleeping girl. 

Now that Subaru and Rem had been sent flying, that wheelchair too had been left at the Roswaal mansion, but――,

???: [Katya-san, please don’t be so angry… I understand your unease after being separated from your fiancé.]

Katya: [D-don’t you go saying unnecessary stuff! You’ve been worried about those kids this whole time too…! Don’t only talk about me.]

???: [That wasn’t my intention.]

Emilia, whose eyes had been fixed on the girl in the wheelchair, was slow to recognize the sight of the girl standing behind her that was pushing the wheelchair.

Holding the handles on the back of the wheelchair and pushing it was a girl with blue hair――,

Emilia: [――Rem?]

Rem: [――――]

Involuntarily, Emilia’s lips uttered that name, and her eyes met with the girl who looked up in surprise.

Emilia stared fixedly at the face of the wide-eyed girl who was looking back at her. It was the first time Emilia had seen her with her eyes open, but she looked exactly like a girl Emilia knew very well.

That, too, was expected, as Emilia had heard that this girl and the girl that she knew were twins. ――From none other than Emilia’s trustworthy Knight.

Rem: [Do you know me?]

Raising her brow, the girl―― Rem, looked at Emilia with a questioning look.

Emilia gasped at that question from the girl with one hand on her chest. Stuck in the middle of the pair’s conversation, the girl in the wheelchair looked back and forth between Emilia and Rem’s faces.

And then,

Katya: [A-another one of your acquaintances? Just how many people are looking for you… Wah!]

Emilia: [Rem!]

Leaping over the woman muttering something with a sour look, Emilia closed the distance between them and took Rem’s hand.

Rem’s eyes widened at her movement, but Emilia was not composed enough to show consideration for her surprise. Still clutching her hand, Emilia teared up at the sight of Rem in front of her.

Emilia: [Awake… Rem’s awake! Amazing! This is huge! Quick, I have to let Ram and Subaru know!]

Rem: [W-wait please, just who are you?]

Emilia: [Umm, there was a message from Ram saying to meet up outside, so maybe she’s already outside? Geez! Why’s Subaru missing at a time like this… Umm, umm…]

Rem: [Please listen to what I’m saying!]

With so many surprising incidents, Emilia’s head was a complete mess, and it was Rem who put the brakes on her thoughts.

She stared angrily at Emilia still clutching her hand,

Rem: [You also called me Rem… Are you someone who knew me from before?]

Emilia: [Ah, no, that’s a bit tough to answer. I don’t remember you from when you were awake, either. So, it’s weird, but it feels like we’re meeting for the first time.]

Rem: [I-I don’t know what you mean…]

Emilia: [Umm, I’m not very good at explaining things, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to get this across properly…]

Emilia felt sorry and thought about what to say to the puzzled Rem.

It was a great feeling to be able to talk to Rem while she was awake, but to Emilia, she was Ram’s younger sister, and a girl who had been asleep for more than a year. She was also someone who’d had her Memories from her time awake stolen by the power of the Sin Archbishop of Gluttony.

If not for what Subaru had said and for Rem’s resemblance with Ram convincing her that her memories with Rem had truly been stolen, Emilia herself would have held no particular feelings.

However, there were some things that could be discerned from Rem’s account and from what Emilia herself knew.

That was――,

Emilia: [Rem, is it possible that you don’t remember what happened before you woke up?]

Rem: […Well, I don’t really know how to feel about there being a before and after I woke up, but yes.]

Emilia: […Right. So that’s how it is.]

She had harbored a hope that perhaps, once Rem woke up, she would have the Memories of her time with Emilia and the others, and that she might be able to tell her about their previous relationship.

Unfortunately, that hope was not realized, but still,

Emilia: [But you don’t have to worry about anything. You may be reaaally worried because you don’t understand a lot of things, but I will help you, and Ram and Subaru will both be there for you!]

Rem: [――. What are you, to me?]

Emilia: [If I were to just state our relationship, I would say that we are guest and maid. But I don’t think that’s the only type of relationship I have with Ram, so I guess I want to have more than just that with you as well, Rem.]

Rem: [――――]

Emilia: [Lending each other help when we need it, thinking together when we have problems, and facing difficult things side-by-side… Maybe I can’t explain this kind of relationship very well.]

When asked who she was to Rem, Emilia was unsure.

The reason for that was that her relationship with her had been brought down to zero and had to be reassembled from that point once again. So, she would only be able to convey how she wanted to reassemble it, and her prospects of it.

Emilia: [I want to get along with you, Rem. Let’s do our very best together.]

That was Emilia’s honest belief, and her future prospects.

Rem: [――――]

Upon hearing Emilia’s answer, Rem’s eyes widened, her lips opening and closing several times.

However, her thoughts were not so readily put into words, and her lips opened and closed over and over again. Just like that the moment slowly seemed to slip away, but――,

Flop: [Wife-san, I have a feeling she’s on your side.]

Rem: [Flop-san…]

Flop: [I’ve met many people as a merchant, but it’s rare to meet someone so straightforward. I’m sure she can be trusted.]

It was the blond-haired young man named Flop who said this to the stammering Rem.

At his bright and cheerful affirmation, Rem raised her eyebrows and then turned to look at Emilia again. Emilia met that gaze with pride in her chest.

Faced with Emilia’s attitude, Rem let out a small sigh,

Rem: […I believe that you are someone who knows me, and that you have no ill will.]

Rem’s hesitation to say so made Emilia’s heart ache for a moment. Emilia’s eyes widened, and Rem’s pale-blue eyes narrowed slightly,

Rem: [Um, you mentioned the name Subaru earlier…]

Emilia: [Huh? Yeah, I did. Subaru is someone who reaaally worries about you and has always treasured you…]

Rem: [――. If that is true…]

Rem’s eyes lowered at Emilia’s answer, and her gaze glanced toward the end of the alley―― the direction from which Rem’s group had just come from. It was not quite a glance into the alley, but more like a glance back along the path they had just taken.

Emilia thought about what it might mean, and leaned forward with a “By any chance”,

Emilia: [Were you with Subaru? Is Subaru okay? He’s not doing anything reckless, is he?]

Rem: [So that’s your perception, too. That man is often reckless.]

Emilia: [Hmm, yeah. He’s a difficult boy and… Oh! Come to think of it.]

Rem: [What is it?]

Emilia: [My name’s Emilia, just Emilia. Since you’ve forgotten, I should probably start by introducing myself.]

Even though Emilia remembered Rem’s name, Rem did not know Emilia’s, and no matter how much time passed, if she did not tell her, Rem would never be able to call her by name. 

After hearing Emilia’s name, Rem’s eyes slightly opened in surprise.

Rem: [Emilia-san…]

Emilia: [Uh, yeah. So Rem, about Subaru, is he over there?]

Rem: [They’re over there, I’m pretty sure of it…]

Then, upon hearing Rem speak ambiguously and seeing her expression darken, Emilia raised her eyebrows with a bad feeling.

Looking at the state of the Imperial Capital and the fact that Rem, Flop, the girl in the wheelchair, and the children were the only ones on the move, it was not very Subaru-like for him to be separate from them.

Still, if Subaru was moving separately from Rem and the others――,

Emilia: [Well then, he’s being reckless again… I’ve got to get to him quickly!]

Rem: [Since you know what to expect right away, then he is that kind of person after all…]

Emilia: [Yes, Subaru has a habit of showing off, so I’m always worried about him.]

Rem: [So he is that kind of person after all…]

Rem nodded her head in agreement with Emilia’s assessment of Subaru.

Emilia was happy to exchange words with Rem like this, but the urgency of this situation did not allow for a lengthy chat.

What made that sentiment even more urgent was that――,

Katya: [――Hk! W-what!? What is that!?]

Suddenly, a rather loud explosion echoed in the distance. The woman in the wheelchair, her shoulders jumping at the sound, looked around restlessly.

While it was hard to make out from her location, Emilia could see a red pillar of fire rising from the far side of the Imperial Capital, followed by a plume of black smoke.

It had been a very big explosion.

The atmosphere did not seem troubled, so it did not seem to be an explosion caused by magic. Perhaps it had been ignited by Fire Magic Stones or something.

Rem: [Over there…]

Emilia: [By any chance, is that the direction where Subaru is?]

Rem: [――. Yes.]

Looking toward the direction of the explosion, the choked-up Rem nodded to Emilia’s question.

The moment Emilia saw the explosion, she could not help but think that Subaru had something to do with it. She wanted to rush over there right now and join Subaru.

But it was also a very difficult choice to leave Rem here alone, considering how Ram and Subaru would feel, and Emilia was almost overwhelmed with wanting to do both this and that.

Katya: […A-are you going toward the explosion? Then, then, take that girl with you. She’s useful.]

Emilia: [Huh?]

Rem: [Katya-san?]

The confusion in Emilia’s mind was brought to a stop by―― Katya, the woman in the wheelchair who had been extremely startled by the sound of the explosion.

She timidly looked at Emilia, repeatedly making eye contact and then averting her gaze,

Katya: [Look, she can use magic to heal wounds. They’ll be okay if they have that, even if they were a bit reckless. Besides… It’s been on your mind this whole time.]

Rem: […I think it’s Katya-san who’s concerned about these things.]

Katya: [I’m fine! And Todd, you see, that guy, he stubbornly clings to his life. He’s bound to come back with a calm and collected look on his face no matter what. But, those kids you know, aren’t as tough as Todd.]

Rem: [Yes, but…]

Katya’s faltering speech, while blunt, was sympathetic toward Rem’s feelings. Perhaps it was because that thoughtfulness was conveyed well.

Rem was unable to nod at Katya’s words. Upon witnessing Rem’s reluctance, Katya raised her voice and said, “Forget it!”,

Katya: [From here on, this person… you know, she took care of it already, right? This… What’s with you, silver hair and long ears, that’s a bad omen, isn’t it?]

Emilia: [Oh, I didn’t want to bring it up; it might trouble you, so don’t look at me right now.]

If people were to find out that Emilia was a half-elf, it might scare them away, even in the Empire. So, she hid both of her ears with her hands so that they might forget about it.

Katya looked at Rem again, wondering about Emilia’s reaction,

Katya: [If it’s about me, you worry too much. I’ll let the nice, scraggly guy over there take me. You do what you want to do, and do it properly…]

Rem: [――――]

Katya: [A-and while you’re at it, make sure Todd hasn’t screwed things up. That’s all I’m going to say! Come on now, don’t dawdle…]

With that, Katya spun the wheels of her wheelchair and moved away from Rem. Rem let out a small “Ah” at Katya’s decision to go without her, and then cast her eyes down.

However, while she closed her eyes tightly,

Rem: [Flop-san, can I leave Katya-san in your care?]

Flop: [Yeah, she’s in good hands! Let’s just get through this last push with the fake Crown Prince-kuns we have worked so hard together with.]

Rem: [Yes. ――Katya-san, thank you very much.]

Rem bowed deeply to Flop, who thumped his chest and was ready to take over. Katya’s cheeks reddened as she turned away with a “Hmph”.

While smiles were exchanged between Rem and Katya, Emilia looked at them fondly.

Emilia: [When we get out of here, please tell me what you have been doing up until today, Rem. I, Ram, Subaru, and everyone else would reaaally like to hear it.]

Rem: [I don’t even think it’s going to be an interesting story… But, I understand.]

When Emilia held out her hand, Rem hesitated slightly before grasping it back.

Emilia smiled at the touch and then gently pulled toward herself. Unexpectedly, Rem’s eyes widened, and she stumbled and fell onto Emilia’s chest.

Then, Emilia picked up Rem’s body and said, “Alright!”,

Emilia: [Sorry. We can’t afford to take our time, so let me carry you so we can go a little faster!]

Rem: [Y-you’re quite strong, aren’t you?]

Emilia: [Yes, I am. ――Take care, everyone! We will meet again!]

With Rem in a princess carry, Emilia called out to Katya and Flop and the others around her. Then, with a “Yaa!”, she leapt from that spot and ascended onto the roof of the building.

Flop: [Wife-san! Miss Emilia! Please be careful out there as well!]

Katya: [Y-you better come back to us…]

With those cheers, Emilia looked down at Rem, who was in her arms,

Emilia: [Hold on tight. I’m going to run a little fast!]

Rem: [――. What kind of relationship did you and I have before?]

While tightly clinging, Rem muttered words as if wringing them out. At those words, Emilia did not have a clear answer to give, but,

Emilia: [I’d like to know about that as well!]

With that strong declaration, she started running again deep into the Imperial Capital, with Rem in her arms.

Continuing on, Emilia ran, and ran, and ran, with the feeling of Rem’s arms clinging tightly to her, and then――,

Emilia: [That’s enough.]

――At that moment, the reunion had been made complete.

  1. “Everyone’s memory of has been erased along with your own memories by a bad guy and Subaru is the only person who remembers you, you’ve been asleep for almost 2 years”

    1. Take into account: The chaotic situation, the abrupt and sudden revalation that Rem and Subaru are finally within reach, fatigue, “Everyone’s memories of you has been erased” naturally leads to many other questions, and finally: Emilia doesn’t know anything Subaru hasn’t told her so it would only serve to confuse Rem further than give her proper answers.

    2. Ah yes, “Everyone’s memory of has been erased along with your own memories by a bad guy and Subaru is the only person who remembers you, you’ve been asleep for almost 2 years”, because the guy that smells like the Witch surely remembers her, unlike everyone else, and this is definitely not a an attempt at tricking her into something.

    3. > capital at an all out war

      > zombies are appearing

      > just got her ass kicked by a Dragon

      > sees Rem who has been asleep for over a year walking around in broad daylight

      Yeah, sure buddy. Maybe realize the circumstances of how fucking chaotic the current situation is before you comment. No one is going to be able to think straight in that situation but you have zero excuses to not use critical thinking skills.

    4. Yeah, I see what you mean, sometimes i feel like its been doing on purpose. But in Emilia defense she’s airheaded, and doesnt think fast she even said she doesnt know where to start. And in Subaru defense he knew rem didn’t trust him anymore and were he to put Louis in danger she wouldnt trust him anymore

    5. Subaru yes it is because if he is the only because it would destroy any Credibility he had little as it was. Would be a tiny bit suspicious to say all your memories are gone and all memories of you are gone. Except for me I am immune to magical memory loss. So the only person in the world who knows anything about your past is me don’t bother looking anywhere else. If someone told me that I would try ask them if they have any NTFs to sell me along with my own past. Also he kind wanted to respect her wishes when she asked to not here anything about her past.

    6. For Subaru, yes, it is. This was literally talked about in Arc 7. After the fallout with Rem when she woke up, he was scared of telling her anything about her past and damaging her trust any more than it already was. They even agreed that he’ll only talk about what she asks him, with the exception being that she has an older sister.
      For Emilia, she spent around a month crossing borders to find 2 people, fought a Divine General, fought a Dragon, fought a bunch of zombies, and is a natural airhead that isn’t articulate with words. Not to mention that answer only raises more questions from Rem’s POV. Is it that hard to believe it’s hard to explain?

      1. She’s not an airhead. People think that because of the way she has a hard time figuring certain things out, and doesn’t always come up with the right answers to things, but it’s not because she lacks intelligence. She’s been separated from civilization for the greater part of her life, and the last time she was part of any civilization, was when she was a little girl, which she doesn’t have full memories of. Considering those circumstances, she’s actually pretty smart considering Puck’s been her only source of education, and her knowledge of Lugunica & the Four Great Kingdoms, since leaving Elior Forest, is probably not much more than Subaru’s.

    7. For Subaru, yes, it is. This was literally talked about in Arc 7. After the fallout with Rem when she woke up, he was scared of telling her anything about her past and damaging her trust any more than it already was. They even agreed that he’ll only talk about what she asks him, with the exception being that she has an older sister.
      For Emilia, she spent around a month crossing borders to find 2 people, fought a Divine General, fought a Dragon, fought a bunch of zombies, and is a natural airhead that isn’t articulate with words. Not to mention that answer only raises more questions from Rem’s POV. Is it really that hard to believe it’s hard to explain?

    1. Beatrice tanza and idra were with Subaru and Todd until those two became zombie bait this is the non combat group sneaking away Emilia encountered

  2. i think her mentioning a sin arch bishop woulda been a really bad idea and that explination woulda taken way too long , also scared them into not trusting her ,not to mention emilia doesnt know rems full mental state especialy after realizing she doesnt member anything , the convo seems odd just cause she doesnt know how much rem knows or doesnt know after that , she obviously realized rem doesnt know she is a demon or alot of other stuff , if she had brought up anything tuffer than simple qn a for sabaru then it coulda gone bad quickly , also emilia realizes subaru hasnt told her everything for a reason and she didnt wanna hurt sabaru by saying things he hasnt had the chance or decided at that time not to say , we both know she trust subarus judgement and works really really hard to figure stuff out before she adds chaos things , mostly i think her questions were to gauge how much subaru shared and she stopped when she realized subaru must have chosen to tell or not tell for a reason and would wait to talk to him , not to mention the shock of seeing her awake and knowing subaru is that way and could be in danger , i know it seems like alot to think quickly , i just think she can think quickly she is the witch of glaciation after all lol , also when do we finally get puck back , i want puck i want puck

      1. With all the Generals I think Tppei has forgotten about Divine Gift mechanics also. What the hell with all the “secret techniques”? These guys are on par with Sin Archbishops. World power structure is choking.

        1. what made archbishops special wasnt their strength it was their bending of natural laws, not to mention that the archbishops never trained once in their life. another point is that these first class generals are probably one of the best line ups in vollachia’s history since the emperor really went out and beyond and somehow managed to get a litterally dragon on the empire’s side in preparation of his death. and “divine gifts” werent forgotten its just that they havent introduced new characters in a while, and when they have a chance to do so its in vollachia where magic is rare and divine protections apart from the yang sword are non-existent

      2. No, he didn’t. He does these kinds of things all the time. A character will exit the main story for a long period of time, being unmentioned or barely mentioned, or only mentioned in side content, before coming back in a big way in a later Arc. I have little doubt that the same will happen for Puck. I think he’ll be at the center of a future Arc or 2 like Rem has been in Arc 6-8. In fact, he might even wake up sometime in this Arc.

      3. he didnt forget about puck, hes just using the most basic trick in the book for dealing with op self inserts ruining your story, just have them be absent

    1. Pelo que me falaram, o Puck vai retornar apenas no arco 10. ( Nada confirmado, isso é apenas uma suposição )

  3. Thank you very much!!! I hope you guys manage to catch up with Tappei’s insane cooking skills

  4. Two of the best and cutest girls of Re Zero working their way with Subaru! Here we come!

    Rem’s story of what she’s been up to tell Emilia will start with “How I have not trusted and tried to kill Subaru” ever since she woke up after eternal sleep.

    At least it ain’t the first time….

    1. Cutest?? Hottest??? Are you fucking kidding me???
      Rem is disgusting and emilia is so fucking stupid not just stupid she is unaturally stupid and naive
      And whenever subaru is with her he becomes stupid too.
      Rem tormented him tortured him killed him and in the third arc she was so fucking useless by always getting herself killed really fast before getting any help.
      If you ask wish is the cutest and best girl I will say medium because she is the best thing happened on this 7 and 8 .

  5. This novel tuning to shit subaru could kill TODD by crushing his damn heart by his shadowy hand but no the fucking Author had to made an excuse lik make subaru a pussy who don’t want to kill him.
    Subaru said it himself right? he was on the gladiator island he said that TODD is worst then a archbishop and subaru himself said all the archbishops deserve death without a question asked.
    Imagine the fate of a guy worst then an archbishop would look like.
    This is all done just to make subaru look pethitic enough to make emilia and rem saving him fucking cringy shit typical of Japanese Authors.

    1. Omg why people like you can’t understand the previous arc

      Anastasia: I can befriend a person that shed a tears for lost the of someone he cares rather than a person who kills his enemies.

    2. Lmao maybe if Todd was willing to wait patiently for a bit so Subaru could position the hand. What an absolutely worthless comment. Did you actually read the chapter? He was using his hand to hold off his axe, totally on the defensive.
