That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime (Episodes 9-12)

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Banner

Rimuru continues to unite the monsters of the forest, building on the success of the goblin village, but a sinister threat approaches, one that will test the limits of his powers.

What’s happened since last time?

It picks up from the last round with Rimuru trying out a number of different human forms based on Shizu. He settles on the original form he’d selected and decides to try out his taste-buds. The hobgoblins prepare a feast to celebrate Rimuru eating with them for the first time.

While hunting for the feast the hobgoblins are attacked by a small group of ogres, resembling samurai warriors. Rimuru rushes to help and ends up as the focus of their attacks. He makes quick work of them, showing off some impressive new skills, before convincing them to stop their attack.

Rimuru invites them back to his village where he discovers that the ogres were attacked by a massive army of orcs and that they are the only survivors. They agree to join Rimuru to get vengeance for their fallen kinsmen. A dryad approaches Rimuru asking him to slay the orc-lord and save the forest.

Have your feelings changed?

Not at all. I am still loving this series and I’m so glad that it is getting twenty-four episodes. There’s so much to cover in this vast and impressive world that it really needs it. It’s a very refreshing change seeing an all-powerful creature gaining the trust and respect of those around it rather than forcing them to submit.

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Gobta versus Gabiru

Who was your favourite character so far?

It’s hard to look beyond Rimuru because he is just awesome. There are lots of very cool characters that make up his team and some interesting dynamics now that the ogres have joined them. Gobta is really starting to make me laugh too. He seems to be growing in strength at a surprising rate.

Who do you want to see more of?

More Rimuru and his expanding group would be great. I don’t want to see any more of that annoying lizardman Gabiru unless it’s to get his ass kicked again by Gobta. Be interesting if the Dryads join up with Rimuru, but that’ll do nothing to ease the tension between the ogres.

Are you going to continue watching?

Absolutely, I’m in there for the duration. Even if they suddenly decided it was going to be fifty episodes long. It’s just a lot of fun to watch. I can’t wait for the next round.
