That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime (Episodes 13-16)

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Banner

If he’s going to unite the Forest of Jura, Rimuru will need to defeat the orc-lord and his army of two-hundred thousand orcs. Even for someone as powerful as Rimuru, this might not be easy!

What’s happened since last time?

When we left off at the end of episode twelve, Gabiru had overthrown his father to become the leader of the lizardmen, only to lead them into dire circumstances against the orc army.

Rimuru watches from the skies as the goblin riders save the lizardmen. Then the kaijin attack, further decimating the orc army. Finally, a majin appears and starts shooting off his mouth only for the orc-lord to eat him and become a demon-lord.

Finally, Rimuru steps in and takes care of business once and for all. Now, to unite the monsters of the Forest of Jura and relax. Well, until the dwarf king shows up and demands to test Rimuru. Satisfied with what he finds, he offers Rimuru an alliance between their nations, forcing Rimuru to come up with a name on the spot…

Have your feelings changed?

I loved this part of the series. Even when Rimuru is doing oddly disturbing things in battle, he still manages to turn them into genuinely touching moments, for example, whilst devouring the orc-lord, he freed to orc of their hungry and then brought them into his empire. I am really enjoying this approach to conquering the world.

Who was your favourite character so far?

Obviously, it’s still Rimuru, but there are several good characters around him. The kaijin for one are all really cool, then there’s Gobta and Rigurudo. And how can I forget about Ranga, the tempest wolf? Then in the final episode of this batch, we meet another unforgettable character – Milim.

Who do you want to see more of?

Now, I need to see more of Milim and how she affects the dynamics of the group, especially as she appears to be more powerful than Rimuru, but not quite as sharp. Plus, it’s always great to see someone taking some wardrobe risks. It’s the return of the butt-cleavage!

Are you going to continue watching?

As I said, I am loving this series. It’s a ton of fun and really refreshing. Rimuru is an excellent central character and it’s cool watching him build the nation around him, even if he is doing it by mistake.
