Epic Dope is the new home of streaming news, views and reviews. No Comments on Is Emilia Satella? Is She the Witch of Envy? Emilia resembles the Witch of Envy so much that it is difficult to think of them as different people. With many clues, such as the origin of Emilia's name coming from a Latin word meaning envy and Echidna's distaste towards both, it seems glaringly obvious that both Emilia and Satella are one person. However, at the same time, the timelines do not match, and quite a lot of instances disprove it. With multiple theories talking about their semblance and relation, let's see which one makes sense. 1. Is Emilia the Witch of Envy? Emilia is not the Witch of Envy as she was just a child when they sealed her. Furthermore, when Subaru told Emilia about 'Return by Death,' she died, which would not make sense if she was the Witch of Envy.
While it is all but proven that Emilia is not the Witch of Envy, a few theories show that she was meant to be one. As we all know by now, Satella and the Witch of Envy are different personas caused due to the Witch Factor. All the other witches are friendly towards the former and think of her as reasonable, but absolutely detest the latter. It is believed that Emilia was chosen by the witches to act as a vessel to contain the Witch of Envy. By doing so, she and Satella would be finally separated and freed from one another. However, due to certain factors, such as the great calamity and the involvement of Puck, made it difficult for them to continue pursuing Emilia. 2. Who Is Satella? Satella is the Witch of Envy. However, after she took in the Witch Factors which were the antithesis of Old Lagna, they turned out to be incompatible with her and in a new personality being created called the Witch of Envy. She was responsible for destroying half the world and was subsequently sealed by the Sage, the first Sword Saint, the Dragon, and the Sage's apprentice. This event later came to be known as the great calamity.
Emilia is not Satella despite mirroring her looks.
After four hundred years passed by, both of Satella's personalities fell in love with a Subaru, a young man from another world. It isn't known why she fell in love with him, other than the theory that she might be Emilia from another timeline. 3. Is Emilia Satella? Emilia is not Satella despite mirroring her looks. She was just a child when Satella brought on the Great Calamity 300 years back and was sealed because of it. However, due to their similar looks, Echidna and Pandora have often referred to Emilia as "the witch's daughter," with Pandora also mentioning that she was of the witch's bloodline after seeing her power. In the end, as we all know, Re:Zero has a history of surprising fans in the most unexpected ways. If we take that into account, there is a parallel world hypothesis that may prove Emilia to be Satella. The hypothesis states that Satella is the Emilia that experienced all the events happening currently, but something went wrong, and Subaru died.
Satella and the Witch of Envy are separate personalities, but both are evil.
Due to this, she drained all the Witch Gene and moved to a parallel world to save Subaru, and gave him the 'Return by Death' ability. There is another theory that states that Emilia is Satella's body. Since the latter was sealed, her consciousness escaped and took a new identity, ie, Emilia. However, as she grew up, she once again developed another persona, which is the current Emilia that stays with Subaru. All of these theories and hypotheses get more convoluted as the series progresses. With little to no information about either of the characters involved, the mystery has yet to be solved. 4. Is Satella Evil? Satella and the Witch of Envy are separate personalities, but both are evil. While Satella is shown as the loving and sweet, and the other as the cruel one, the witches specifically state that it was the former that consumed them. However, many don't see Satella as evil, as we have no idea why she killed the other Witches. Furthermore, despite her killing them, the witches like her and instead despise the Witch of Envy. In the end, as someone who encourages Subaru to continue on, it is difficult to see her in a bad light. With no information about Satella other than ardent love for Subaru, her moral compass is shrouded in mystery.

The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
