That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 32

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 32

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 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.

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.

Attack on Titan Episode 71

Attack on Titan Episode 71

Yelena and the Yeagerists

With Attack on Titan: The Final Season episode 71, the Yeagerists have officially been recognized as a group, and we’re starting to move into another arc (sub-arc, maybe?) of the story. I believe I touched on this last week, but at this point, we’re seeing that there are more factions than just Paradis and Marley.

We have other peoples from around the world who have a stake in this conflict such as Yelena, Onyankopon, and the Azumabito clan. Then, even within Marley and Paradis, there are separate factions. Marley has both the Warriors and Restorationists while Paradis has the Scouts and newly named Yeagerists.

These factions can also get a bit messy when you consider that there’s a decent amount of overlap between them. For example, Zeke could be viewed as a Warrior, Restorationist, and Yeagerist.

What this episode really showed us about these factions, though, is how Yelena appears to be playing them all against each other. Originally she was a member of Marley’s army, but it turned out that she was really a Restorationist. That’s pretty understandable considering her background.

Then we learn that she’s actually a diehard Yeagerist and was using the restorationists to gain access to Eren. And then there are some other bits of information that come to light, such as her meeting with Eren in secret and seemingly being the one who pushed him down the path he’s currently on.

After all, according to Yelena, she was the one who put the idea of attacking Marley directly in Eren’s head. So what is Yelena really playing at? Is she truly a Yeagerist, or is she just using that faction to achieve some other goal like she’s done with the other factions she’s been a part of in the past?

Yeager Bomb

I know I referred to the Yeagerists as just another faction in the previous section. But the truth is that they’re a terrorist organization. They assassinated Premier Zachary, leader of all three branches of the Paradis military, helped a prisoner escape, and are actively working to undermine Paradis’ diplomacy with other nations.

With that said, the Yeagerists do have some valid concerns. From their perspective, Paradis doesn’t have time to go through the diplomatic process. They know that Marley isn’t going to allow Paradis to forge relations with other nations because that would result in Marley’s power and influence in the world being diminished.

And even if Paradis did have time to meet with the leaders of more nations than just Hizuru, that’s still not a guarantee that Marley would back down. There’s still the very real possibility that Marley would attack anyway and attempt to crush Paradis.

It’s been over a decade since the walls fell, and yet the Paradis military didn’t make all that much progress towards eliminating the threat of Marley. But, with a single attack, Eren was able to cripple Marley’s military and buy a little more time for Paradis to prepare for the incoming invasion.

When you look at it that way, it’s no wonder that the Yeagerists, who are generally all on the younger side, have lost faith in the Scouts and Paradis military as a whole. In their eyes, the established military had plenty of time to solve the problem of Marley but failed to act in a timely manner.

Did they need to resort to assassinating the Premier? Probably not. What was Premier Zachary really going to do to get in their way that Pyxis and the other commanders aren’t going to do now? His assassination was effectively just a display of the Yeagerists’ conviction.

Eren is Still Beautiful

In this episode, we finally got my favorite panel from the manga in anime form. Of course, it’s the scene of Eren throwing on the coat with the sunset in the background. Honestly, Attack on Titan peaked with that. Who cares about the fate of Paradis? Just give me more shots of Eren topless.

However, I am going to be that person and say the manga did it better. First of all, the art of the Attack on Titan manga is great. It doesn’t matter that it’s in black and white rather than full color. But more than that, I really liked the details of the panel as a whole in the manga, and the anime reduced that (as is expected considering it’s an anime).

Obviously, the anime isn’t going to be as detailed as the manga. That’s not a realistic expectation to have for any anime, even if some might rarely pull it off. My point is just that I preferred the manga’s version of this scene. It includes a full-body shot of Eren rather than the cropped one shown below, and it includes more of the surrounding landscape.

Eren’s appearance aside, this is also an important moment for his character. Up until this point, he hasn’t directly gone against Paradis. He may not have always agreed with the ways the military did things, but he went along with them for the most part — such as back in season 1 when Levi Squad is escorting him into the forest of giant trees.

Even when he went rogue and attacked Marley, he wasn’t directly acting against Paradis. But now that he’s aligned himself with the group responsible for the assassination of the Premier, things are different. He’s still driven by his goal of freeing Paradis. But at this point, it’s hard to justify his actions.

Conclusion

What do you think of Attack on Titan: The Final Season episode 71? Have the Yeagerists chosen the correct path to follow? Did they go too far by assassinating the Premier? And do you prefer the anime or manga version of the shot of Eren putting the coat on? Let me know in the comments.

Boruto Episode 188

Boruto Episode 188

Awakening

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 188 is the first time Kawaki’s name has been mentioned since episode 1. And it seems like we still have a long way to go until we get to the point that was foreshadowed way back in that first episode. I could be wrong since I don’t read the manga, but I don’t think the manga is even there yet.

Now that Kawaki is a real character in the series, I think it’s safe to say that we’ve finally reached the main portion of Boruto. Everything’s coming together. We know all of the Kara members, Kawaki has awakened, and we’re starting to unravel the mystery of Karma.

One of these mysteries of Karma is how those who wield it are connected to each other. In this episode, we saw that when Boruto got close to Kawaki, both of them started to feel pain. And, when the airship originally went down, Jigen was able to tell the status of Kawaki via his Karma — implying those two are connected as well.

Delta

What’s most interesting about this Karma connection to me is the implication that Jigen already knows Boruto has Karma as well. If we’re assuming that Jigen has had his Karma for some time, and his Karma can resonate with Kawaki’s over long distances, it seems reasonable that Jigen has already sensed Boruto’s Karma.

He might not know that it’s Boruto specifically who has Karma. But he likely knows that someone else has it and that they’ve now come into contact with Kawaki. This is likely the reason why Jigen didn’t seem to be all that concerned about the state of the vessel when Delta was pressuring him.

Perhaps Karma alone isn’t enough for Jigen’s plan. Considering Kara were investigating multiple Karma patterns, it’s possible they need to collect them all.

Kara Trials

How Kawaki came to be a “member” of Kara is pretty familiar if you remember how Orochimaru used to recruit people to join his group. It’s possible that Jigen even got the idea from reading or hearing about Orochimaru’s past.

Basically, the recruitment has two parts. First, and seemingly most important in both cases, is the acquisition of children with the potential to be a good vessel. Jigen seems to have bought Kawaki from his father, and Orochimaru used similar practices.

Second, is the classic battle-royale to determine which of the potential recruits is worthy of sticking around. We didn’t actually see this happen with Kawaki, but it seems to have been implied. You could also argue he simply underwent a different sort of trial, though.

Jigen from the anime series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
Jigen

Now, something I’m still not quite sure about is how Kawaki came to wield his Karma. We don’t know when he acquired it, but we know he had it upon completing the trial. Did he obtain it during the trial? Or did he already have it? Did he have it back when Jigen originally purchased him?

And if Kawaki didn’t already have his Karma when Jigen purchased him, then was there a specific reason Jigen wanted Kawaki? Could he tell that Kawaki was someone with the potential to awaken Karma? Or was Jigen simply looking for any child he could get his hands on?

Unfortunately, I think a lot of these questions are going to go unanswered. I could see us getting a bit more background on Kawaki once he’s around for a bit longer. But I get the feeling we’ll never actually see what the trial he underwent was. We’ll probably see him training under Jigen and being experimented on by Amado instead.

Capturing the Vessel

We know that the most important thing to Kara right now is the capture of the vessel, Kawaki. However, as I mentioned previously, Jigen doesn’t currently seem to be concerned. And when Delta shows up to see why Koji Kashin has been taking so long, she finds him nonchalantly watching Kawaki and the Leaf shinobi interacting.

Now, at this point, you would probably think that Koji simply isn’t getting involved because he wants to see what will happen when Boruto and Kawaki, two people with Karma, interact for the first time. However, I think there might actually be more to his inaction.

We’ve seen Inners get involved before. Both Deepa and Victor fought against the Leaf shinobi. However, it does appear that Kara Inners tend to prefer sending Outers into battle in their place. I’m not sure why this is yet, but the brief back and forth between Koji and Delta seemed to have confirmed this.

Koji Kashin and Delta from the anime series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
Koji Kashin and Delta

First, Delta asks about Ao and Koji responds that he’s dead. She then says that if Koji isn’t going to get involved, she will. Normally, you would expect that to mean that Delta herself is going to get involved. But it doesn’t appear she meant it that way and Koji didn’t take it that way.

In response to this, Koji asks if she brought an Outer with her, which she did. So basically, when Delta says that she’s going to get involved, they both understand this to mean that she’s going to have an Outer get involved on her behalf.

Why would Inners like Koji and Delta resort to using Outers in a situation such as this? I get that it’s a classic trope for villains to view fighting with the heroes of the story to be beneath them, and so they throw their underlings at the heroes first. But this doesn’t seem like that kind of situation. Here, you would think Delta would want to jump in and recover the vessel as quickly as possible.

Conclusion

What do you think of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 188? Do you think Jigen already knows about the existence of Boruto’s Karma? Will we ever get to see the trial Kawaki had to undergo to become an Inner of Kara? And, why do you think Delta (and to a lesser extent Koji) didn’t get involved and retrieve Kawaki?

The Promised Neverland 2nd Season Episode 7

The Promised Neverland 2nd Season Episode 7

The Mujika and Sonju Dilemma

In The Promised Neverland 2nd Season episode 7, it was revealed that while Norman has never met Mujika or Sonju, he’s been told about them. Specifically, he was told about Mujika. However, as far as Norman knew, Mujika and all of her followers were eaten by the demon king and nobles 700 years ago.

Mujika and her followers were killed and eaten because their blood allowed for demons to survive with human-levels of intelligence without needing to eat humans. This was bad for the king and nobles because part of their power came from their control over the human farms, and therefore the sentient demon population.

But, does this mean that Mujika survived after all? I doubt it. I don’t think the Mujika we know is the same one from 700 years ago. The Mujika we know seems to be relatively young as far as demons go. I think Sonju is probably a follower of the original Mujika. And this new Mujika is potentially her descendent, or simply named after her because she shares the same blood mutation.

Regardless of whether the current Mujika is the same as the original Mujika or not, she’s still a potential problem for Norman’s plan. If Mujika or Sonju were to share their blood with other demons, it would mean Norman’s drug wouldn’t work.

Also, Norman brought up a great point about how demons viewing humans as food would likely overrule the fact that they wouldn’t have to eat humans to survive any longer. We already know this is true because of what Sonju said about dreaming of a day when he can hunt free-range humans.

Demon Experimentation

Not only were Norman and his allies experimented on by the demons at Lambda, but they too have been experimenting on demons since escaping. We see that below their base of operations, they have hundreds of demon body parts in jars. And they even have a large demon chained up and impaled all over its body.

I’m sure that Norman was the one who first suggested experimenting on demons. His allies are certainly smart (maybe the girl to a lesser extent since she seems to be the muscle of the group), but I don’t feel like they would have come up with a plan like that. I think they would have gone out hunting demons, not experimented on them to develop a way to commit demon genocide.

Although, it’s pretty easy to see why they would go along with his plan. They were all experimented on at Lambda, so now they’re getting their revenge by doing the same to demons.

This episode also revealed some of the effects that the Lambda escapees still suffer from. They get migraines that require copious amounts of pills to get rid of. And as we saw with Norman, they occasionally cough up blood as well. It’s unclear if those two things are actually related, but I’ll assume so since one of the others mentioned that they were running out of time.

So, this brings up the question: Will Norman survive to the end of the series? Personally, I don’t think he will. But it’s also possible that Emma and Ray could get him to the human world for treatment just in time.

Oh, and I guess I should comment on the new information regarding the human world. There are apparently gates that allow travel between the two worlds. That sounds a lot like some sort of time-space gate if you ask me. I think it would be odd for there to be just regular gates connecting them in multiple locations.

My Doubts Regarding Norman

For a lot of people, the events of this episode probably made you think that Norman can be trusted to an extent. Obviously, he’s lying to Emma and Ray about not killing Mujika. But, he made a pretty convincing argument for not being on the side of the demons, as I claimed he might be last week.

However, I’m still not convinced that Norman really is on the side of the humans. I know, that might seem shocking considering the fact that he’s planning a demon genocide. But allow me to explain my reasoning.

We still don’t really have a good explanation as to why Norman would refer to Mujika as an evil girl. I get that she has the potential to thwart his plan, but it’s not as if she’s really a threat in any way. But do you know who Mujika is a threat to? The demon king and nobles who don’t want more demons to have their power.

What about Norman’s plan to commit demon genocide, though? Surely that makes him on the side of humans, right? Well, not exactly. Remember how Ray pointed out that the demon king and nobles would have wanted Mujika and her followers dead so that they could more easily control the population?

Well, if the demon king and nobles could also threaten civilians with forced regression via a drug, that would also make them more powerful. I think it’s entirely possible that Norman is pursuing these drug trials specifically for the demon king and nobles to use.

While we don’t know who Norman met at the very end of the episode, my guess is that it was either the king or a noble. They probably needed someone to figure out a new way for them to hold power — and who better to do that than a top-scorer like Norman? I bet they offered to let him and his “family” go free if he helped, which is why he wants Emma and Ray to stay out of it.

Conclusion

What do you think of The Promised Neverland 2nd Season episode 7? Do you think the Mujika we know is the same one from 700 years ago? Do you think Norman was the one who came up with the demon experimentation plan? And do you think Norman is a “traitor” or not? Let me know in the comments.

Re:ZERO Episode 46

Re:ZERO Episode 46

Ram’s Wish

For an episode that was 95% dialogue, I feel like there was a surprisingly small amount of new information that I didn’t already suspect. The first of these new pieces of information is that Ram’s goal is to save Roswaal from being deceived by “the witch,” which in this case likely refers to Echidna, not Emilia.

Although, she does also refer to Echidna as Roswaal’s teacher. So maybe when she uses the phrase “the witch” she really is talking about Satella. I’ve been pretty positive that Roswaal is connected to the Witch’s Cult for a long time. For now, I’m going to say that Ram was referring to Echidna, though.

This revelation regarding Ram interests me for three main reasons. First, it shows that Ram isn’t just a blind follower of Roswaal. Up until this point, the series had been portraying Ram as completely subservient to him. And while she still is to an extent, there’s more to it than him simply being her employer or savior.

The second reason it’s interesting has to do with that last part about Roswaal being Ram’s “savior.” I’ll be going over this more in the following section, but it was previously implied that Roswaal took Ram and Rem in after their village was attacked. So you could have thought that she served him out of obligation. This idea seems to have been shattered.

And finally, how much is Ram’s stated goal affected by the fact that she’s forgotten about Rem? Would her goal actually be to save Roswaal if her memories of Rem weren’t erased? Something tells me that her main goal would be to protect her younger sister if she had her memories. Is rescuing Roswaal from the influence of the witch connected to protecting Rem in some way she currently forgets?

Ram vs. Roswaal

I’m sure that Roswaal admitting to being the one who attacked the oni village probably came as a surprise to some of you. This didn’t surprise me at all. In fact, way back on September 30th, 2020, I predicted that Roswaal was behind the attack. That’s the date the final episode of Season 2 Part 1 aired.

Now, I didn’t mention that in the review. But I did mention it on Discord, where you can see the message for yourself. It’s still there and unedited.

While I wasn’t surprised when Roswaal revealed this, I was somewhat surprised that Ram would still want to save him despite this being the case. Why would Ram want to rescue Roswaal, the person who slaughtered her clan and destroyed her village, from being deceived by the witch?

Roswaal confronted by Ram at the magic crystal from the anime series Re:ZERO Season 2
Roswaal confronted by Ram at the magic crystal

There are two possible reasons I can think of. It could be that Ram doesn’t necessarily blame Roswaal for what happened. She may blame the witch for deceiving him and causing him to do it. Since we know that Roswaal doesn’t do anything that isn’t laid out in his copy of the Tome, that makes sense.

The other reason could be that despite what Roswaal did to their people, he willingly took in Rem. And this is where we get into the whole “is Ram’s wish currently distorted by her forgetting Rem?”

We know Ram is very protective of Rem. When they were kids, she hated how the other villagers would always put down Rem for “taking” half of Ram’s power. So if Roswaal accepted both Ram and Rem with open arms, that would probably make her view him favorably.

Oh, and I guess I should mention that Puck teaming up with Ram was surprising. I don’t see Roswaal being able to defeat the two of them in his current condition.

Reunion of Roars

I’ve had mixed opinions on Garfiel ever since he was introduced. And my worst opinion of him probably came when it was revealed that he’s actually 14. Maybe making him a year younger than Subaru would have been good. But making him be 14 seems too much like a gag for me to take it seriously.

At the end of this week’s episode is probably when I thought the highest of Garf. His character developed pretty quickly, as Roswaal pointed out to him last week. But I do think it was good development.

I like Garf’s role as a protector. First, he considered himself to be the protector of the sanctuary — even if it was due to his own refusal to recognize the truth. And now, he’s shown up at the mansion to protect his sister, Petra, Rem, and Betty from the threat that is Elsa (and Maylie).

Garfiel showing up to fight Elsa

Considering how Elsa was able to fight off everyone in Old Man Rom’s shack at the beginning of the series, I think Garf will have his work cut out for him. But, and maybe I’m giving him too much credit here, I do actually think Garf will be able to beat Elsa.

He’s not going to kill her, or even badly injure her. I can’t see him beating her to that extent. However, I think it’s entirely possible that Garf will be able to fight back enough that Elsa needs to withdraw. She also may withdraw simply to regroup with Maylie, in which case I don’t think Garf could beat them both.

I’m definitely looking forward to next week’s episode, though. We should get some good action between Ram and Puck fighting Roswaal, Garf fighting Elsa, and maybe even someone else (Otto and Subaru?) fighting Maylie.

Conclusion

What do you think of Re:ZERO Season 2 episode 46? Is there another reason you can see as to why Ram is devoted to Roswaal? Were you surprised when Roswaal revealed that he was behind the destruction of the oni clan? And do you think Garf has a realistic chance of beating Elsa? Let me know in the comments.
