That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 15 Review - The war is done and Rimuru tries to wrap it up in his usual chill manner but the dryad decides to lump him into yet another position of power and responsibility. This accidental empire builder in the making is going to have to step up to the plate.
Gelmud reveals himself, the Orc Lord becomes a Demon Lord, and the fight really kicks off. There's no real doubt about how it will end but I guess the question is whether or not this was fun to watch?
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 12 Review: The orcs are getting closer and we see an alliance kind of being built. However, the best intentions in the world won't stand up when there are idiots afoot.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 11 Review: The lizardmen continue to try to recruit allies, meanwhile Rimuru may very near be killed by the poor cooking of one of his own in a display of absolute cliche dumping. Still, there's something genuinely pleasant about these encounters and pondering the question of where are we going.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 10 review: After the much awaited feast, Rimuru gets down to business integrating the ogres into the group but trouble is brewing. However, as typical of this anime, it doesn't eventuate this episode and I guess we're waiting again.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 9 Review: Rimuru is still dealing with the death of Shizu as well as his return to human form. However, he doesn't have long to ponder his newly grown powers before his goblins are set upon by ogres. While there's still no sense of danger, it is kind of fun watching how Rimuru deals with that.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 7 Review Was anyone really surprised to see that Rimuru survives everything that goes down this week? If the answer is yes I'd question whether or not they'd watched the episodes up until this point because clearly they haven't been paying attention.
Unfortunately, what that means for me is that while I appreciate what That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is doing and that it is doing it relatively well, I'm never going to be more than casually enjoying this. And that's mostly because every time I start getting seriously into the story because of some development that might potentially be really interesting or dramatic, the story cuts it off at the knees and kind of does a 'ta-da' kind of moment ...
I will give this episode credit though because of all the episodes so far, this is the one that has given me the most to think about and the most enjoyment. I really liked seeing the exchange between the King and the dwarf and I really liked the King afterwards putting the other idiot in his place.
I don't actually need the protagonist to be in danger every minute of every day, but they could at least make the encounters that are clearly non-threatening a little bit more amusing. The 'fight' outside of the dwarven city was just kind of lame no matter how you look at it...
