Recently it was April 1st, and as is tradition in ReZero, in addition to April 1st being Subaru’s birthday, the series protagonist, author Tappei Nagatsuki published a new story “What If” for free on the web.
Every April 1st is when the author of ReZero publishes the “What Ifs”, it was on April 1st that he published the What Ifs of Rem, Gluttony, Greed and other What Ifs not as interesting as the one about school and the What If where only the characters’ genders are swapped.
Called Mimagau, this was an What If the author published last year, it’s basically arc 1 of the normal story, but just changing the gender of the characters, instead of Subaru being a boy, it’s a girl, Emilia is a man, Rein a girl so on.
E pro E Se this year the author published Arc 2 of Mimagau, presenting what the characters of Arc 2 would be like with the gender changed. Shall we go to them?
Rem and Ram ended up becoming men in this What If, and their official male names are Reu and Rau.
Beatrice, the spirit of the library in the Roswaal mansion became Victor, her nickname, Betty in the male version is Vicha, Beako became Vic-ta.
Petra, the little girl from the village who becomes a friend of Subaru and the others and later ends up working at the mansion, became Pietro.
Roswaal remained as Roswaal, nothing changed.
And the phrase Subaru likes to say “Emilia-tan Maji Tenshi” ended up becoming “Emilio-kyun Maji Tenshi” for the male version of him.
And there it is! The new names of the characters in Arc 2 with the genders changed, let’s see if next year the author publishes a more interesting E If, right?
