Re: Zero Watch Order Easy Guide

Who would have thought that a regular isekai like Re: Zero would be so popular? Even though it has a hero who can go back in time every time he dies and a standard family, it has gotten very far.

How so? First, in Re: Zero, every character, big or small, gets the care they deserve. In all honesty, no one could have known how important Rem would be.

The series is what it is because of the dark tone, Subaru’s feats, and how likable he is.

So far, there have been two anime seasons of Re: Zero, with a total of 50 episodes. There are also two OVA movies, two short anime shows (ONA), and a special Director’s Cut of season 1 that are all part of the brand.

Since Re: Zero is a popular series, it makes sense that it will get a lot of anime episodes. Some of the OVAs and ONAs might be hard to understand, but I’m here to help you figure out how to watch them.

This page has them all, from the easy release order to the hard-core fans’ favorite chronological order.
