Re:Zero Season 3 would be a delight of the fans especially to those who have been following the story of Subaru in his extraordinary adventure in the world where he is transported to, one where both humans and demi-humans live in, as the Season 2 Part 2 is about to reach its season finale with Episode 50.
The isekai anime of Re:Zero – Starting Life In Another World only has 25 episodes lined up for the second season. The White Fox produced anime series is based on the pages of the light novel series of the same name written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka published by Media Factory. It also has a separate manga series and a manga anthology series, Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World − Official Anthology Comic.
Subaru Natsuki was just on a normal day, going for a quick run for some supplies in a nearby convenience store, and returning to his home when he doesn't get there at all, as he gets to a place where it seems to be stuck in a loop.
Confused, dazed, and lost, Subaru encountered a group of thugs who beat him up. He was fortunate enough to bump into Satella who rescued him from the thugs. Satella, a passerby looking for her stolen insignia, helps him. In turn, Subaru helped Satella look for the missing insignia. To their surprise, it is not the insignia that they found but their death.

In an interview with Sho Tanaka, producer of Re:Zero – Starting Life In Another World with Crunchyroll, he said, "I'm confident that you'll all be clamoring for a third season once you've finished watching this one."
