When Subaru came out of a convenience store, he found himself in a mysterious place. There, Emilia saved him from an attack. They went on a mission to find Emilia’s stolen insignia and were cruelly killed.

Then resurrected into life unknowing of his ability of ‘Return by Death’, Subaru found himself with the vendor he was talking to before his death. He kept going back to the previous time to get hold of things in different ways.

With the help of Reinhard, Emilia defeated Elsa and got back her insignia. Subaru found himself safe and sound in his room and realized Emilia saved him again. Rem attacked and tortured him suspecting that he was plotting against Emilia.

The Mabeast was defeated by Subaru but he again died to save Rem. Rem fell in love with him after a while of this incident. Emilia wanted to be the next monarch of the castle, so she became a candidate in that royal election.

He and Julius fought hand in hand and killed Petelgeuse by using Julius’s spirit La and writing “the end” on the Gospel Book. At last, he succeeded to save Emilia’s life making her grateful to him, and also confessed his feelings for her.
