Re:Zero Final Impressions - SPOILERS

So, first off: this entire thread is spoilers for the Re:Zero anime (LN spoilers are forbidden). If you have not seen all 25 episodes, turn back now!

This is a place to write your final overall impressions of the anime: what were your favorite moments? Do you think the show constitutes a deconstruction of the iseikai (transported to another world) genre? Why or why not? What did you think of the way they wrapped things up in the final episode?

Also, here's a great interview with some of the script writers about how they adapted the light novels to the screen, and about their differing takes on the series' protagonist.

My impressions are still being formulated: I'll post them here as soon as they're a bit more coherent.

Personally I was both over- and underwhelmed by the finale. I liked the sense of resolution the conclusion gave, however it felt very much like the end of a series that didn't know if it was getting a second season or not. By this, I mean that the resolution felt forced, rushed, and overall much less effective than I would have hoped. Don't get me wrong, I still quite enjoyed the series, but I felt that the end could have been handled better. Also, shit is supposed to hit the fan right after the final scene, so I suppose they're saving that cliff-hanger for if the series gets renewed.
