That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 13 Review Review
This week Rimuru and a selection of the kijin (evolved ogres), goblins (including Gobta) and direwolves go to their meeting with the lizardmen to form their alliance and take on the orcs. Only to discover that Gabiru has indeed stuffed things up by taking action on his own. Go figure.
Still, after some fairly unnecessary begging and pleading by the daughter of the lizard-chief Rimuru forms an alliance with the lizardmen using the daughter as a proxy representative and then proceeds to do nothing while his overpowered forces proceed to annihilate the orcs.
We already knew Rimuru was way OP but seeing the extent to which his subordinates are wiping out that army was a pretty impressive display of brazenly making an entire cast OP. It is a good thing I don’t actually care whether characters are overpowered as long as I still care about them, and the ogres have made a good case for me actually feeling happy about them getting some revenge after their village was wiped out and the rest of their clan eaten. Okay, there’s no tension in this scene at all because you don’t for a moment believe that anyone other than the orcs are at risk of dying, but it is an impressive visual spectacle and while it might seem petty watching the kijin blast and cut their way through the ogres was great fun. As was Ranga’s fairly impressive display.
And, it is clear that Rimuru isn’t going to sit things out for good. He’s clearly been on the lookout for the orc lord and by the end of the episode he’s spotted him. I guess that means when we get the next episode we’ll have a Rimuru vs Orc Lord scenario though maybe he’ll let the ogres handle it. Who knows?
So, no real surprises this week but if you like this kind of fantasy war setting this was fun enough.
