Considered as the best episode in the ongoing anime series so far, Episode 18 of “Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World)” delivered some of the most powerful lines of the Japanese series and fans still can’t get enough of it.

The episode aired Monday in Japan and the series is concurrently being streamed by Crunchyroll with English subs on a weekly basis. But beforehand, Episode 18 itself was hyped through an advertising spread in the Tokyo subway. And sure enough, White Fox follows through with the hype that it created with an episode that will most likely be remembered for quite some time.

Fans were also blown away by the dialogue between main character Subaru and lovable blue-haired maid Rem who is currently being hailed as the best girl of the year. At the same time, people were somewhat disappointed by the outcome of the relationship between Subaru and Rem despite being satisfied, overall, by the episode itself.

Here are some reactions gathered from fans around the net who have watched Episode 18:
