Hey everyone! I’m discount anon, Arc V’s translator.

This purpose of this website is to host a compilation of the most complete  translation of Tappei Nagatsuki’s web novel, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu. Since both the light novel and the manga are a ways away from catching up to the anime, Re:Zero’s story can only be continued from a fan translation. There are currently six story arcs; I, II, and III were covered by the anime, and Arc IV has a complete fan translation, which is available for download on this site. Arc V, which I’m working through, is where the fan translation is currently sitting.

I refer to these as “discount” translations because I base my work off of the Chinese translation. Although the material that I use is professional and accurate, there is a chance that speech quirks, idioms, puns, and the like will be lost in translation. I strive to keep this from happening, and I proof my work using the Japanese source material to keep it as true to the web novel as possible.

Please note that the web novel is long and detailed, and many hours of work are needed to translate just one chapter. I also like to spend time polishing each chapter to make it a smooth and accurate read. As such, translations will take me a while to do, but I will try to follow a schedule so that everyone has something to look forward to every week. This way, translations can catch up to the source material in the foreseeable future.
