「ただそれだけの物語」 (Tada Sore Dake no Monogatari)
“That’s All This Story is About”

WHITE FOX is really stretching Re: Zero to its limits. For the majority of the season, they tried to give us the full extent of the episode by skipping out on the OP and ED, but for this finale, it’s a full 3 minutes longer! Hurray for Emilia x Subaru!
