Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World (Japanese: Re:ゼロから始める異世界生活, Hepburn: Ri:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, lit. Re: Life in a different world from zero) is a Japanese light novel series written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka. The story centers on Subaru Natsuki, a hikikomori who suddenly finds himself transported to another world on his way home from the convenience store. The series was initially serialized on the website Shōsetsuka ni Narō from 2012 onwards. Sixteen volumes have been published by Media Factory since January 24, 2014, under their MF Bunko J imprint. The series' first three arcs have been adapted into separate manga series. The first, by Daichi Matsue, was published by Media Factory between June 2014 and March 2015. The second, by Makoto Fugetsu, has been published by Square Enix since October 2014. Matsue launched the third adaptation, also published by Media Factory, in May 2015. Additionally, Media Factory has published two anthology manga with stories by different artists. An anime television series adaptation by White Fox aired from April 4, 2016 to September 19, 2016, starting with an hour-long special. White Fox is also producing an OVA based on the series. In August 2016, game developer 5pb. announced plans for a visual novel based on the series. The novels and all three manga adaptations are published in North America by Yen Press. The anime adaptation has been licensed by Crunchyroll, which released the anime on home video through Funimation in the United states and Anime Limited in the United Kingdom. The light novels have sold more than three million copies, while the anime series has sold more than 60,000 copies on home video. The light novels have been praised for its fresh take on the “another world” concept, but have been criticized for awkward dialogue and redundancy. The anime series has been praised by critics for its “culturally complex world” and for the actions of its characters. The series received awards at the 2015–2016 Newtype Anime Awards, the 2017 Sugoi Japan Awards, and was nominated for Anime of the Year at The Anime Awards 2016.
