Watching Re: Zero episodes can be quite confusing sometimes. Especially if you are new to the show, then you will hear about different kinds of the anime season, the OVAs, specials, and movies. But since the anime adaptation has currently stopped at season 2, this would be a good time to binge Re: Zero anime episodes. And if you want to get deeper into the show and watch all of Re: Zero in the correct order, then you should definitely check out this Re Zero anime watching guide. In simple terms, Re: Zero has only two seasons, but if you are to get deeper in the show and include movies and OVAs, then you will end up with a lot of confusing information.

So let’s take a look at all Re Zero releases in chronological order. To make things simple, we will organize them according to their types. And, of course, you would want to watch anime first, so you understand how the story develops. I mean, that is the only reason why one would not want to mess up the chronology of the story.

So if you want to understand how to watch Re Zero anime, movies, OVAs, and specials, I will be listing all the releases more easily to know what to watch next. We will look at the anime first as it is one of the earliest to release. But things got a little confusing when the Re Zero director’s cut was released.

Here we will also look at what order you can watch re-zero. Re Zero season 1 aired from 4 April 2016 until 19 September 2016 for the original series. The Director’s cut reduced some scenes and aired 13 episodes of about an hour each from 1 January 2020.

So most fans would wonder what the difference between Re Zero and Re Zero director’s cut is. There is slight gore removed from the original episodes so that the show would be suitable for TV broadcast. But the story remained the same, so there really isn’t much difference. Also known as Re Zero – Starting Life in Another World, Director’s cut ran from January 2020 in the following order:

To get more understanding of the show, it would be best to watch the director’s cut first. Because the OVAs released after the first season. And as a way to promote the second season. The director’s cut aired, and there was nothing new introduced to the story.

After the first season of the Original anime ended, Re Zero OVAs followed because it was not until four years later that the anime returned for Re Zero season 2. The OVAs aired in the following order from October 2018:
