Anime DifferencesEdit

  • The vines attacked Subaru without him attempting to touch the flower.
  • Ram's fight against Wilhelm and Ricardo is cut. Instead, she is stopped by Wilhelm's sword, and she reveals her identity instead of Subaru guessing who she is based on her voice.
  • Subaru and Ram's conversation on the way to Irlam Village is cut.
  • Part of Ram's discussion with Subaru is given to Petra.
  • Parts of Subaru and Julius' discussion is cut including Ram's presence.
  • Subaru's discussion with the merchants is cut.
  • Ferris and Julius are present when Subaru regains consciousness. Parts of their scene is cut including Ferris mentioning that he died once.
  • The Ketty Petelgeuse's death is moved off screen and Aro and Ik's protecting Subaru and Julius is cut.
  • The fourth Petelgeuse, the female one, has her death changed. In the anime she is ripped apart by a group of Wolgarm off screen while in the light novel she receives a fatal wound from one Wolgarm and dies from blood loss in front of Subaru. In addition, Patrasche's appearance and the female Petelgeuse throwing things with her Unseen Hands is cut.
  • The Emilia vs Petelgeuse fight is shortened, cutting out Petelgeuse using other Witch Cult members as shields and Emilia's physical combat.
  • A scene where Emilia sheds a tear after noticing the villager's stares following her battle against Petelgeuse is added.
  • Julius and Ferris chase after Subaru instead of only Julius chasing after him with Ferris and Wilhelm arriving soon after.
  • A scene where Emilia turns to look at the forest the moment Julius kills Subaru and Petelgeuse is added.


  • The second verse of Stay Alive was used as the ending theme for this episode instead of the first verse.
