The reason I got through Re:Zero's first episode is BnHA, it's first episode ended far too early for all the hype it was getting. Re:Zero being the only decent fantasy show of spring and an hour long left a better impression, that and the cliffhanger which left you unsure whether their were two Emilia's or if she gave a fake name and why.
I also thought EMT was interesting for not having the exact same personality as the typical fantasy heroine but that's probably just me.>>146114605
MC being a cunt is what it made it great, especially as the show makes him out to be sympathetic and a generally good person before completely exposing how much is wrong with him.
I thought he would get away with it and the show would let things go his way but it shits on him instead.
