It is one of the biggest “What If” scenarios in anime and light novels, and people are still discussing it. What if Rem said yes to Subaru’s offer to run away with him and leave everything behind? That question will certainly be answered in a special 290-page novel by series author, Tappei Nagatsuki.
The novel is titled “IF”, and it follows Subaru and Rem running away to the more Japan-like country of Kararagi after Natsuki’s mental infamous breakdown. And they’ve been busy too! The early look features visuals on their kids, Rigel Natsuki and Spica Natsuki, along with Rem Natsuki and Subaru Natsuki of course.
It’s been noted that Rigel was almost named Vega, but Subaru he quickly decided against it as he didn’t want his son growing up to be stronger than himself. Oh, and did I mention that Rem has long hair?
While the story is a “What if” story by the author himself, it is still not a part of the main canon, but be sure that fans are still looking forward to it. The “IF” novel will be coming as a bonus for those who buy the complete Blu-ray set for the Re:Zero anime.
