Subaru Natsuki had just been trying to get to the convenience store, but he wound up summoned to another world. Worse, he has only one special ability, and he has to die to use it! At least now he's got a goal--save the girl with the silver hair and bring a smile to her face. But how many times is he going to have to die a terrible death in order to make that goal a reality?
Breaking free of his death loop in the royal city, Subaru awakes in an opulent mansion, being tended to by the twin maids Ram and Rem. After sustaining terrible injuries, he has been taken to the home of the Margrave Roswaal, Emilia's guardian. The two maids, along with the young librarian Beatrice, are the sole guardians of the mansion's forbidden library, but their quiet, peaceful days come to a violent end when another cycle of death begins! Subaru is the only one who remembers the time he's spent with the people he cares about, but will he be able to save them?
--Let's get this story moving. Alongside the people most important to him, a boy goes out to meet the same sunrise once more. Strengthening his resolve, Subaru returns to his first day in the mansion. Repeating his loop in the Roswaal household armed with his memories, Subaru attempts to only make the optimal decisions to avoid another tragedy, but his fear and obsession with evading death and failure are slowly warping him. While Subaru slowly falls apart trying to save everyone...who will save Subaru...?
After escaping the deadly time loop of the manor, Subaru can finally enjoy a brief respite. But after a visit from the king's messenger, he returns with Emilia to the royal capital, where it all began. As he reunites with his friends, Subaru gears up to help Emilia become the next monarch, but Emilia herself stubbornly refuses his assistance...
It's been three days since Subaru and Emilia separated on the worst possible terms. Subaru has fled to Crusch's mansion, letting Rem tend to him while his heart festers. Gloomy and distraught, Subaru ignores his instructions to stay put and returns to Roswaal's manor. But what he finds when he arrives brings the spiral of death and despair even closer...
Subaru returns with Emilia to the capital of Lugunica, where it all started for him. There, he runs into some (unfortunately) familiar faces...but also the other candidates for Queen of Lugunica!
Subaru thought his life would be peaceful now, but now he's died again and doesn't know why! Subaru tries everything he can to avoid repeating that fate, but nothing seems to work. Beatrice the librarian might be Subaru's only hope!
Thanks to his "Return by Death" ability and a little help from Beatrice, Subaru gets to the morning of the fifth day alive. However, an unexpected tragedy occurs! Can Subaru save the residents of the mansion, or is he doomed to re-live his pain once again?
