A short series to be watched after Re:ZERO
Genre(s): Comedy, Parody
Age-Appropriateness: 13+ (occasional suggestive themes)
Episodes: 25 (11 in Break Time, 14 in PETIT, all 2 minutes and 30 seconds long)
TheAwersome Rating: 6.8 / 10 (A chuckle was had)
Premise: Break Time is a series of shorts sketches that correspond to the events of the corresponding episode in the main series, poking fun at the premise or plot holes of the episode. PETIT is a series of shorts along the premise of a reverse Isekai in which all the characters from the world of Lugnica (Re:Zero’s fantasy setting) are in modern Japan living normal lives.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: This was a funny time, but obviously you’ll want to watch all of Re:Zero before watching these because of major spoilers. As these shorts are likely what spawned the plans for the longer-form crossover version, Isekai Quartet, characters are all caricatures of themselves from the main show. Animation is very simplistic, same chibi style as Isekai Quartet, and a few of the episodes in PETIT are literally just ads for the DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the series.
TLDR: Good short snacks of web-comic-flavored humor.
