What To Watch: Original or Director’s Cut?
Those who want to watch the anime series are confused about this. Let us help you immediately. The original anime series has 25 episodes, all of which are 25 minutes long, while the director’s cut consists of 13 episodes, each one hour long, but there are episodes slightly longer than the original series. However, the general plot of both is the same, with some extra scenes and minor changes in the director’s plot. However, if you are starting Re: Zero for the first time, we recommend the director’s cut because it has a much higher quality animation and plot.

Top Re Zero Reviews (via IMDB)
People who thought that this anime story is ruined after only seeing half of the episodes, are in hell of a surprise! this anime keeps getting better week after week. Its an emotional roller coaster. Anime fans shouldn’t miss this amazing ride. A helpless boy struggling to do things right and returning from death to correct his mistakes is everybody’s fantasy. Subaru the protagonist is the character you will fall in love with, although most of the times you might hate him, you might feel sorry for him or you might even get annoyed by him but at the end of the day you will admire him. This anime story is well written, it makes the viewer stay at the edge of their seat. With the end of each episodes every week, you just crave to know what might happen next episode. I hope they make more than 30 episodes for this series.
The storytelling in this anime is just divine. The characters, the visuals, the soundtrack, they are just perfect. Highly recommend this anime- although there isn’t as much fighting/action scenes compared to other animes, the main selling point is the story telling, and it has done well.
