That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 36

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 36

War of the Demon Lords

TenSura Season 2 Episode 36 is the final episode of the second season. At least, I think it’s the final episode of the second season. Considering the first season was 24 episodes long, it’s possible that this second season will have another cour later.

I’m not sure and I’m not going to check because it doesn’t really matter. The anime is done for now, and when it comes back, I’ll watch it.

Anyway, the major event of this episode was the declaration of war from Milim to Carrion. As we’ve been told in the past, the various Demon Lords generally stick to their own domains rather than clash with each other. So, this is an odd development in that regard.

However, I’m fairly confident in saying that back in Season 1, it was explained that Milim travels around in search of worthy opponents. I’m pretty sure that’s why she originally showed up in Jura Forest after hearing about Rimuru’s rise to power.

So from that perspective, Milim declaring war on Carrion isn’t all that surprising. After all, who better to give Milim a good fight than another Demon Lord? But at the same time, when we see the difference in power between Milim and Carrion, it’s pretty clear that even the other Demon Lords don’t stand a chance against her.

Now it makes sense why everyone just kind of leaves Milim alone. None of the countries bother her from what we know, including the Holy Church. And it’s very possible that the Demon Lord domains were created to keep Milim specifically in check.

I mean, what are you supposed to do if you get on her bad side? She can literally wipe your country off the continent and has done so in the past.

Demon Lord Alliance

The weirder thing than Milim declaring war on Carrion is the fact that Milim is teaming up with other Demon Lords. Earlier in the season, we saw Milim hanging out with Clayman, so it’s not like this development came as a surprise.

But the fact that Milim would hang out with Clayman at all is weird. They don’t seem to have anything in common aside from being Demon Lords. And as far as we know right now, Clayman is the weakest of the Demon Lords. What does Milim gain by allying with him?

Well, I think what Milim stands to gain is another Demon Lord potentially on par with herself. If my memory serves me correctly, Clayman has been attempting to create other Demon Lords from behind the scenes throughout the series so far.

Clayman’s first attempt at creating a Demon Lord was the Orc Lord. Ultimately, the Orc Lord was defeated by Rimuru. But, Clayman’s second attempt at creating a Demon Lord seems to have worked. Wasn’t he the one behind the allied countries attacking Tempest?

If we’re to believe that Clayman’s goal is to turn Rimuru into a Demon Lord, then I could see why Milim would join him. And if Clayman antagonizes Rimuru into fighting against other Demon Lords, Rimuru may eventually become on par with Milim, thus giving her a worthy opponent.

Why Clayman would want another Demon Lord is still unclear. Also, why Demon Lord Frey would be teaming up with Milim and Clayman isn’t known. It’s hard to believe that all three of them have a common goal.

What’s more likely to me is that they’re using each other. Clayman is using them for something. Milim is using them to find an opponent to fight (and maybe kill her?). And Frey is perhaps just standing by to pick up the pieces of whatever domains get destroyed in the process.

The One Unleashed

The part of the episode that really makes me think that there may be another cour of this season later on in the year rather than nothing until Season 3 is the introduction of Veldora. It seems really odd to introduce his human form like that right at the end of the season.

Now, I get it. It’s a cliffhanger. But I don’t think it’s a good cliffhanger. Veldora being unsealed as the final part of the episode doesn’t make me think “what’s going to happen next?” It makes me think, “oh, Veldora is finally here.”

If the episode had ended with Rimuru and Veldora heading off in the direction of Clayman’s domain, then it would have been a good cliffhanger. But that’s not how it ended. It didn’t end with whatever’s coming next being set up.

To be honest, I don’t like Veldora’s humanoid design. It’s boring. He doesn’t look very different from a bunch of other characters in this series. And his humanoid design has nothing in common with his dragon design, which is strange.

Also, now that Veldora is here, does that make Rimuru the second strongest Demon Lord? Rimuru was already extremely strong before becoming a Demon Lord and has only gotten stronger by gaining that title. And now we’re told that Veldora himself can hold the western nations at bay.

So wouldn’t the pair of them working together be able to beat at least some of the other Demon Lords? I mean, Milim is only half-dragon and she’s that strong. Veldora is 100% dragon. Though, I guess you could argue Milim has defeated a dragon in the past.

Conclusion

What do you think of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 36? Was this a good place for the season to end? Why do you think Milim, Frey, and Clayman have teamed up? And What are your thoughts on Veldora’s character design? Let me know in the comments.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 35

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 35

Merciless

TenSura Season 2 Episode 35 was a good episode. I don’t mean “it was good for TenSura.” I mean that it was a good episode. It might not have had super well-choreographed action sequences. But those aren’t required for a good episode of anime.

Anyway, this week I figured we’d look at Rimuru’s skills since they played a major role in the episode. I went over Megiddo a bit last week, so I’m going to skip that one and start with Rimuru’s newest skill, Merciless.

Merciless is an extremely powerful skill for a few reasons. But how does one acquire it? Originally I thought it was tied to becoming a Demon Lord. However, Rimuru acquires it when he’s only about halfway to the number of souls required for that transformation.

Rimuru’s Merciless skill

It seems that the Merciless skill is acquired by killing a certain number of people who have already surrendered. Rimuru unlocks the skill right after killing soldiers who beg to be spared. And the effect of the skill also has to do with this.

Merciless automatically kills everyone within a wide range of the user who has lost the will to fight against the user. That’s a very devastating skill to have. Simply by striking fear in the hearts of your enemies, you can kill them all in an instant.

Since the skill system in this series operates much like it would in a video game, we can probably assume that there are “fear” type skills that cause enemies to flee rather than attack. Paired with one of those skills, Merciless could be used without actually fighting at all.

But, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing Rimuru use the Merciless skill again in the series.

Skill Swapping

When Rimuru evolved from a Slime to a Demon Slime and gained his Demon Lord title, he also upgraded all of his skills. Or, he would have upgraded them all if some of them weren’t used as payment to upgrade others.

I don’t remember what every one of RImuru’s skills does. But I’m pretty sure one of the skills that was traded in to upgrade a different skill was called Devastation. So whatever Devastation was, we can assume Rimuru can no longer use it.

Why does this matter? Because unless I misunderstood what happened in the midst of all this skill upgrading, Rimuru traded in his brand new Merciless skill. And if you consider how I just mentioned that Merciless is an overpowered skill, that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Rimuru’s skills being upgraded

So, why would Rimuru give up a skill like Merciless? There are three primary reasons. First, we have the reason you may have expected. By losing this skill, Rimuru is effectively being nerfed. Since Merciless is such a powerful skill, it would void a lot of future conflict. You could argue that simply not adding the skill in the first place would make more sense, though.

Second, as Rimuru stated, he doesn’t believe that he’ll have many options to actually use the skill. I disagree with this sentiment, but if that’s what he thinks, it makes sense for him to trade it in for a skill he thinks he’ll use more.

And third, even if Rimuru was faced with situations in which he could use Merciless, would he ever use it again? The only reason he slaughtered 10,000 people here was that they killed his comrades and he needed souls to become a Demon Lord and revive them. Without that context, it’s unlikely Rimuru would resort to genocide.

Birth of a Demon Lord

Something you might have noticed is that it wasn’t explained very well how exactly Rimuru was able to revive everyone who had been killed. Sure, he used a powerful type of magic to do it. But what does that have to do with being a Demon Lord?

We were told that becoming a Demon Lord grants that Demon Lord something they desire. The only examples we have so far both dealt with resurrection, so beyond that, I can’t really comment. But it’s not as if Rimuru wished for his friends to be resurrected and it happened. He had to perform the act of resurrection.

So was the magic that granted him the ability to resurrect the dead his gift for becoming a Demon Lord? And if so, does this imply that Rimuru can resurrect the dead any other time he pleases (and has the proper amount of magicules)?

It’s a weird situation. Obviously, the ability for Rimuru to revive the dead whenever he wants would take away a lot of risks and consequences in the series. But at the same time, I think it could be used in some very intriguing ways.

For example, could Rimuru use this revival magic to bring Shizu back to life?

Shizu’s been dead for a long time, so you would expect that she couldn’t be revived by this spell. But, Rimuru absorbed her body into his own immediately upon her death. I think he even gained her memories or something. So might that mean he absorbed her soul as well?

And if Rimuru absorbed Shizu’s soul, couldn’t he use his slime body to piece it, and her physical body, back together? He’s been shown to be able to restore things in the past. But, despite it seeming possible for Rumuru to revive Shizu, in death, she was finally able to be with her loved ones again. Would Rimuru really take that away from her?

Conclusion

What do you think of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 35? Do you think the Merciless skill is as good as I claim it is? Should Rimuru have gotten rid of it as he did? And do you think we could see Shizu be revived eventually? Let me know in the comments.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 34

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 34

Megiddo

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 episode 34 was actually better than I expected. Normally that wouldn’t be too amazing of a feat when talking about TenSura because my expectations are often pretty low. But I did have high expectations going into this week’s episode.

We knew from the end of the previous episode that this one was going to have quite a bit of action. First, there was a short, yet still good, “fight” featuring Benimaru. Then, we got a brief scene of Gabiru not being a clown for once. And third, Souei’s group killed everyone before they knew they were under attack.

But obviously, the highlight of the episode was the fourth battlefield, which featured both Hakurou and Geld facing off against the Otherworlders. I’ll be going more in-depth with that in the next section.

Before getting to the Otherworlders, I want to take a moment to discuss the title of the episode and the scene or Rimuru’s attack on the army at the end. The title was named after the attack Rimuru used: Megiddo. But what is that?

Some of you may be familiar with Megiddo, but others may be more familiar with its Latin name, Armageddon. Both words refer to the alleged location of the final battle during the end of the world in the Bible. And this is also why they can be used to refer to the end of the world itself.

Basically, Rimuru’s attack is named after the end of the world because it can kill tens of thousands of people in an instant. I would have preferred that it looked cooler when he used it, but it gets the job done and certainly lives up to its name considering it’s being used to create a Demon Lord.

Death to the Otherworlders

Considering the previous content of this series, I really wasn’t expecting how brutal the deaths of the Otherworlders were going to be. These weren’t the first on-screen deaths of the series. But I believe they were the first on-screen deaths of named characters.

Well, aside from Shizu’s death. But that was under different circumstances so I wouldn’t exactly say it’s comparable.

I think every other death in the series that was on-screen was the death of an enemy monster we had no attachment to. Obviously, the monsters allied with Rimuru are ones we’re attached to, but their deaths were off-screen. And while you might not have been attached to these Otherworlders, they were still prevalent enough characters.

Hakurou from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2
Hakurou

The first Otherworlder to die is probably the one to die in the worst way. He was beheaded by Hakurou, but because of the skill he was using, he was still alive for a while afterward and had time to recognize that he was going to die.

In a close second comes the female Otherworlder, who was strangled to death by the third Otherworlder in order to absorb her power or something. That’s also a terrible way to die, but at least she wasn’t conscious after already being effectively dead.

The final Otherworlder got the best ending. He was simply killed in a second without time to realize what was going on.

But, these deaths made me wonder what happens to them after they die. They’ve all already died once in their original world and got reincarnated in this fantasy world. So do they get to reincarnate again? Do we even know how reincarnation into other worlds works in this series? It’s possible that their souls were summoned initially.

Reincarnation and Possession

Speaking of reincarnation in TenSura, we were introduced to another type of reincarnation in this episode. Sir Razen reveals that he has reincarnation and possession abilities that allow him to jump from his current body into the body of someone who has recently died.

By using these techniques, it’s implied that Sir Razen has been alive for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. But why is that important? Well, you may be thinking that it’s important because it sets up Sir Razen as perhaps the next main antagonist of the series.

However, I don’t think that’s the case. Yes, Sir Razen is a Majin who’s been able to cheat death for a long time. But as we’ve seen before, Majin aren’t really all that much of an issue for Rimuru. First, there was the Majin that created the Orc Lord, then there was Myulan, and now there’s Sir Razen.

So why is Sir Razen important? My guess is that his importance comes from the fact that he’s about to be food for Rimuru. As far as I can tell, Rimuru isn’t merely killing these 10,000 soldiers. He’s absorbing their souls into his body and refers to them as his food.

And what do we know about things that are absorbed into Rimuru’s body? That’s right! Their skills and abilities become his own. So if Sir Razen has the abilities of reincarnation and body possession, and he gets absorbed by Rimuru, it stands to reason that Rimuru will gain those abilities.

Reincarnation is obviously a nice skill to have, assuming it works as one would expect. But the possession skill is potentially more interesting. Could we see Rimuru possessing the body of others temporarily to bring out their full strength in battle?

Conclusion

What do you think of TenSura Season 2 episode 34? Did you already know what Megiddo was before I explained it? What do you think happens to Otherworlders when they die? And do you think Sir Razen will survive Rimuru’s attack? Let me know in the comments.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 33

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 33

Putting Everything on the Line

The first half of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 33 was basically just a recap. I was actually worried that the entire episode was going to be a recap when we hit the halfway point and had no meaningful new content. But luckily, that wasn’t the case.

Still, it’s not as if the second half of the episode mattered all that much either. It was basically just Rimuru telling his various forces where they were going to attack in the next episode. I don’t have too much to say about how Rimuru divided up his forces other than that I would have liked to see Benimaru vs. the Otherworlders.

I do like how Benimaru was sent on his own, though. He’s clearly the strongest person within Tempest aside from Rimuru. So that much makes sense.

Gabiru from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2
Gabiru

Something that surprised me a bit was that nobody seemed surprised about Rimuru being a human from another world in his previous life. It makes sense that none of them would be influenced by this information. But I expected at least someone to have expressed shock at that reveal.

You’d think the humans like Youm might be surprised by it considering the Otherworlders found in their home nation are all humans. To me, it would have made sense for them to believe that all Otherworlders would reincarnate as humans.

And even if Youm and the humans weren’t surprised by this, how did Gabiru or Gobta not exclaim something? Both of them are mostly included for comedic effect.

Oh, and I’ve never really thought about it before, but I guess there are probably more Otherworlders who reincarnated as monsters that we just don’t know about.

What is Clayman After?

I’m sure this is just me not understanding something or Crunchyroll’s subtitles being bad (again), but didn’t Rimuru say that Clayman isn’t a real Demon Lord in this episode? To be fair, he said that perhaps Clayman is attempting to become a True Demon Lord. But I don’t know what the difference is.

Is a True Demon Lord different from a regular Demon Lord? I thought all Demon Lords had to collect 10,000 human souls to receive that title. Do you need 10,000 more to become a True Demon Lord? I have no idea.

Anyway, I don’t think this whole “True” Demon Lord thing is real. Previously, Clayman was trying to make the Orc Lord into a Demon Lord. So why would he do that if he wasn’t even a Demon Lord himself? That doesn’t make sense. Instead, I think Clayman is trying to collect these souls to make another Demon Lord like he was back then.

But why would he want to make a new Demon Lord?

Benimaru from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2

I’m not really sure what Clayman’s end goal is here. Maybe he has a second wish that he wants to be fulfilled, but every Demon Lord only gets one. In that case, he may be thinking that he can make a new Demon Lord and then take their wish for himself or something.

Regardless, I thought it was pretty entertaining that Rimuru said he wasn’t worried about whatever Clayman’s up to considering in the comments of my review of episode 29, K1R4 said that I was underestimating Clayman. Look, if even Rimuru is saying that he doesn’t need to worry about Clayman, I think it’s safe for me to say the same thing.

I get that Clayman might actually be a threat. But as of now, we haven’t exactly seen anything from him that would indicate this.

That Time I Committed Genocide as a Slime

It’s still pretty funny to me how nonchalant Rimuru is about the fact that he’s about to kill at least 10,000 people in the blink of an eye. That’s true Demon Lord energy. I’m pretty sure these 10,000 people aren’t even the same ones that initially attacked Tempest. This is a new group of soldiers who are about to be wiped out.

Last week, I theorized that Rimuru might “kill” all of the soldiers without actually killing them as he did with Myulan. However, that no longer seems to be a possibility. Not only does it seem like Rimuru fully intends to kill them, but it’s their souls he needs, not simply for them to die.

Based on how Milim’s dragon went out of control when it was revived without a soul, I don’t think these soldiers would truly be alive even if Rimuru gave them replacement hearts after taking their souls.

Also, I guess we still don’t really know what being a Demon Lord entails aside from being able to revive people (once?). Since it’s an official title, I suppose that it comes with general stat boosts. But we haven’t actually been told anything as far as I know. We just know that the Demon Lords are strong because they had to be in order to become Demon Lords.

You can’t just collect 10,000 human souls without being somewhat strong beforehand, right? Oh, and we haven’t gotten a reason for why the souls have to be human. It’s now been established that monsters have actual souls as well. So you’d think that those would work as well, right?

Maybe collecting the souls of 10,000 monsters is how you receive a different title, such as that of “Hero.” Though, I do think it was mentioned way back in Season 1 that there can only be one Hero at a time, which isn’t the case for Demon Lords.

Conclusion

What do you think of TenSura Season 2 Episode 33? Do you think this was a good episode? Or do you agree with my feeling that it was slow and mostly a waste of time? Also, why do you think Clayman is looking to acquire 10,000 more human souls? Let me know in the comments.

Barriers and Souls

I think for the first time throughout this entire series, I’m actually looking forward to the direction it’s going in. Even when Rimuru’s city was attacked, I didn’t really care about what was going to come next because I assumed that nobody important would die. But, TenSura surprised me.

Well, it almost did. But then it was revealed that Rimuru is actually going to resurrect them.

Gobzo dying was surprising. But I think it’s fair to say that Shion’s death was the real shock. Remember how I had been complaining about how useless Shion’s character was for a few weeks? Well, ironically enough, once she got killed off she actually gained a use.

Obviously, Rimuru mourned for all of his fallen citizens. However, I don’t think he would have chosen to go down the path of becoming a Demon Lord if not for Shion. Shion was one of his closest retainers since her job was to literally carry him.

Now, while I liked that the series was willing to kill off characters in order to give Rimuru a push, I’m not so keen on the whole revival thing. The idea that barriers can keep souls contained is fine, I guess. But I’m not so sure about it being used in this way.

Also, exactly how the resurrection works wasn’t explained. Do people who are close to a Demon Lord automatically get revived? Does the Demon Lord get one wish? Does the Demon Lord gain access to hidden and forbidden magic? We don’t know.

How Not to Become a Demon Lord

For a few weeks now I had been mentioning that Rimuru might become a Demon Lord. I thought Milim had told him back in season 1 that he had the ability to become a Demon Lord. Maybe I’m misremembering though since Rimuru seemed somewhat surprised to learn that in this episode.

Anyway, enough about Rimuru for now. We finally got some backstory for Milim, so that’s what I want to write about. I don’t know about you, but as soon as the fairytale began I knew it was about Milim. I’m pretty sure she had already been labeled as a dragonkin or something.

But, it was nice to have that definitively stated now that one of her parents is in fact a dragon. That helps to explain why she’s considered to be the strongest of the Demon Lords. On top of that, she’s also the first of the (current) Demon Lords, which is a bit more interesting now.

Milim sealing a dragon from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2
Milim sealing a dragon

Milim never set out to become a Demon Lord, and it’s unknown if there were any Demon Lords before her. What we know is that she took revenge on the kingdom that killed her pet dragon (which is a bit weird for her to have considering one of her parents was a dragon). And through slaughtering 10,000+ humans, she became a demon lord.

This act allowed her to revive her dragon, but it was a soulless monster at this point and so she ended up sealing it. Now, I thought for a moment that the dragon she sealed may have been Veldora, but we already know it was the Hero who sealed him, not Milim. Maybe Milim’s dragon will become a plot point later on.

And the last thing I want to mention about becoming a Demon Lord is: Why did the other Demon Lords become them? Aside from Milim, there’s Clayman, Carrion, and I think one other that was named that I’m forgetting. But, did they each have people they wanted to revive as well? Or did they want something else?

Episode XXXII: A New Hope

Rimuru’s choice to commit genocide just to revive about 50-100 of his citizens is a little bit extreme if you ask me. I mean, I get it. He wants revenge, he needs to kill 10,000 people to revive his friends, and if he doesn’t crush Falmuth and the Church, his people will continue to be in danger.

But at the same time, committing genocide seemed like a choice he didn’t even have to think about. I wonder how far beyond killing the 20,000 soldiers marching to his border he’s going to go. Is he going to slaughter everyone in those two kingdoms? Probably not, considering then there would be no reason to make Youm the King of Falmuth.

Killing 20,000 people is still kind of a big deal though, even if they are soldiers coming to attack your country. If this was a war and 20,000 enemy soldiers were killed in it, that would be one thing. But this is Rimuru walking up to the army and slaughtering them all single-handedly.

Rimuru killing Myulan from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2
Rimuru killing Myulan

There is a seed of doubt in the back of my mind. I’m actually interested in seeing how Rimuru goes about this slaughter and how it changes him as a person. And I kind of like the fact that he’s made up his mind and is going to follow through with this heinous plan. He’s not backing down this time as he normally does.

But, I think there might also be a way out for Rimuru. And I’m really hoping it doesn’t come to it.

In this episode, we saw Rimuru kill Myulan for a second by removing the artificial heart Clayman had implanted in her and replacing it with one of his own. Does that count as actually killing Myulan? Rimuru said it did. So what if he does that to the 20,000 soldiers? What if he kills them without killing them?

Conclusion

What do you think of TenSura Season 2 episode 32? Were you surprised to find that actual, named characters had died in the attack? Do you think Milim’s dragon is going to come up again in the future? And what are your thoughts on Rimuru’s planned genocide? Let me know in the comments.
