That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 19 Review - Once again Slime goes about showing the audience that we really should not be invested in any of the situations. This anime is always about the joke and the punch line and bringing things back to a very relaxed level so even as increasingly dangerous foes appear, the actual impact of these encounters remains pretty negligible. That doesn't make it bad, just kind of forgettable. If you were chasing an epic fight scene after the setup at the end of the last episode you'd be left disappointed, but Slime has consistently maintained its tone and feel so the outcome here as Rimuru hands the fight over to Milim to wrap up in one hit isn't exactly a surprise.
While we aren't quite half-way through the Winter anime season, I'm just taking a moment to take stock, look at my watch list, and I'm trying to predict which of the shows I'm watching will actually hold out until the end of the season to be my favourite. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you are watching, what you've dropped, what you think will be anime of the season, and what you think is going to fall apart.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 18 Review: Well, the peaceful down scene didn't last long but I'm thinking Lord Carrion needs to pick some better henchmen because the one he sent this time is an idiot. And idiots make stupid choices and so on we go to the next threat to Rimuru's peaceful forest.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 17 Review: There's a lot of talk going on as other nations come to visit Rimuru to find out what the deal is with the new monster nation. Despite the chatter, there's still some fun to be had in this episode and plenty of set-up for future things to go wrong.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 16 Review - Pretty much every bit character we've ever met turns up and then a pink-haired demon lord. Well, I guess the nation is growing.
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?
