Fans of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- all know the special occasion that takes place in the month of February. That’s right, on February 2 we celebrate the birthdays of two of the female protagonists of the series, Rem and Ram. It seems Japan is ready to throw a big celebration, especially for the younger of the two sisters, Rem.
During the month of February, two special events titled “Re:Life of a Rem’s Birthday from Zero” will take place in Japan . The events titled will be held in the Gamers Store in Akihabara and on the 8th Floor of the Shibuya Marui department store in Tokyo. Each event will feature their own set of exclusive merchandise to celebrate Rem’s special day.
Shinchirou Otsuka, the illustrator for the Re:ZERO light novels, drew special key visuals for both events. In addition to this, light novel author Tappei Nagatsuki will hold talk and autograph session at the Akihabara event on February 5.
