Re:Zero has been pretty cringe-worthy lately, until I started looking at it as a series of moral life lessons in what NOT to do.
There are many paths to enlightenment, and one of these paths is the Skillful Path.
The Skillful path teaches that if one is unhappy in life, it is because they are unskillful in certain areas.
To become happier, one must become more skilled.
Subaru is unskilled emotionally. He has ZERO control over his emotions, and this lack of skill/emotional control is creating many mistakes which cause him pain and unhappiness. He is unskilled mentally, as shown by his horrible negotiation skills and while he tries to plan things out, he doesn't think far enough ahead.
Physically, he is also a zero.
He also does not have any particular specific skills to be useful or make money.
The creator of this show is trying to teach people the dangers of being a ZERO in life.
Scale of 0 to 10
Emotional Control- 0
Physical Strength- 0.5
Money Making Skills- 0
Social Skills- 0.5
He was slothful in the real world, not putting in the time to work out, improve his communication skills, learn various skills to make money, etc etc.
While its annoying to watch him be stupid, emotionally unstable, weak, and useless, I think the lesson in this show is determination to improve oneself as well as learning self-control.
The Greed of a Pig- basically wanting something for nothing, instead of trading the only thing he had, which was information, quid pro quo
Sloth is somehow represented by this crazy guy but Subaru was lazy as fuck in the real world
Pride was shown in stupidly fighting a guy and making an ass out of himself in general, wanting to be praised as someone exceptional when he has not put in the time and effort, but also Wrath was there, as anger has clouded his rational decision making.
