Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- is based on the light novels written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichiro Otsuka. The first two seasons of the White Fox-produced anime premiered in 2016 and 2020, with the second season having a split-cour format. (Season 2’s second cour premiered in January 2021. In July 2020, Tsunaki Yoshikawa, the animation producer of the first two seasons, founded Atelier Pontdarc.)

The light novel series, which is published under KADOKAWA’s MF Bunko J label, began in 2014 and will release its 36th main volume on June 25, 2024 JST. Yen Press describes the first volume of the books as:

Subaru Natsuki was just trying to get to the convenience store but wound up summoned to another world. He encounters the usual things–life-threatening situations, silver haired beauties, cat fairies–you know, normal stuff. All that would be bad enough, but he’s also gained the most inconvenient magical ability of all–time travel, but he’s got to die to use it. How do you repay someone who saved your life when all you can do is die?

Meanwhile, the synopsis for volume 16, the start of “The Stars That Engrave History Arc,” reads:

A CITY OF HIDDEN DEPTHS! In the year since the Battle of the Sanctuary, Subaru Natsuki has been busy honing his skills alongside Emilia and the other members of their merry band. Still, these peaceful days cannot carry on forever-and it is none other than Anastasia, Emilia’s rival in the royal selection, who brings their respite to an end with an unexpected hand-delivered letter bearing an invitation to the famous Water Gate City of Pristella. Despite their suspicions about the sudden request, they accept and set off for the trade hub that lies at the kingdom’s border. There, among the inviting canals and dazzling streets, await old friends, new faces, and a hidden menace lurking in the shadows!

In addition to the main Re:ZERO light novel volumes, there are short story anthologies, side stories, manga, and video games. The manga adaptation of “The Stars That Engrave History Arc” (which uses a different title) started serialization this year.

Re:ZERO started as a Shousetsuka ni Narou web novel.
