WN >what are the differences between the WN and the LN?
The LN tones down characterization, foreshadowing, world building, straight up cuts content out, and past Vol 7 it takes influence from the anime which makes it cut way way more and drastically changes the structure of events. The WN is superior, except that it will never have official translations into english. >wn fan translations
arc 1, none (LN 1)
arc 2, none (LN 2,3)
arc 3, none (LN 4,5,6,,8)
arc 4, the longest is the only one that is complete (LN 9...
arc 5, is about half way complete
Even though you have watched the anime, I'll still recommend you to read the LN to Vol 7, It actually isn't that bad as I made it seem (until vol 8) and you get most of the things the anime left out and also able to get a better perspective on Subaru's character which is vital.
most translations can be found here, its a little hard to usehttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1_wOtTltdwZhHK0UKaV1AelPcA-K70SdWPcY3FTBJGnA/mobilebasic
If you want to jump to where the anime left off, start with Arc 4. I strongly advise you to start with Anon's interlude (the part you start with) because his doesn't skip a chapter like Translation Chicken. Translation Chicken's translations are higher quality and more polished than Anon's but he hasn't finished Arc 4 like Anon has. Start with Anon's interlude, then switch to Translation Chicken or just keep with Anon's like I do. Also Anon's translation gets way better the farther into the Arc because I guess they were learning as they went.
Anon's Arc 4 is 1600 pages and 660000 words.
Fuck translation chicken, fucking reddior translators skipped the Natsuki Rem chapter too. The first Natsuki Rem chapter is not apart of the extra What IF chapters. It’s meant to be read with the main “timeline”, that’s why it’s in the LN and on the WN page it doesn’t say “Re:Zero EX” like the other What IFs.
