During the Summer School Festival MF Bunko 2015 event, it was confirmed that a TV anime series adaptation of Tappei Nagatsuki’s fantasy light novel Re: Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu/Re:ゼロから始める異世界生活 or Re:Life in a different world from Zero is on the way.

The light novel was published by Media Factory with six volumes since it started in January 2014. The popularity of the series is noted when it was ranked 10th for Best New Works in Kono Light Novel Sugoi 2014 listing. It has been adapted into three manga titles; one of which is already finished and the rest are still ongoing at this time.

However, the information about the anime itself is very sparse right now. This is the official synopsis:

Suddenly, high school student Subaru Natsuki has been summoned to another world on the way back from the convenience store. With the biggest crisis of his life being summoned to another world, and with no sign of the one who summoned him, things become even worse when he is attacked. But when he is saved by a mysterious, silver-haired girl with a fairy cat, Subaru cooperates with her to return the favor. When they finally manage to get a clue, Subaru and the girl are attacked and killed by someone. Subaru then awakens in the place he was summoned and notices he gained the ability “Returns by Death” and has become a helpless boy that only has the ability to rewind time by dying. Beyond the despair, can he save the girl from the fate of death?
