“I’m not a bad slime!”
Boy, were my emotions all over the place this week. But I mean that in the best way possible since so many different things were going on. Starting in chronological order, boy am I happy to see our boy Gobuta finally show us his true worth. As one of the few hobgoblins whose looks didn’t really change, I’m glad that he was instead bestowed with some innate skills that give him a leg up on the competition. While it remains to be seen just how good he can do on the battlefield, I have a feeling that someone who is capable of figuring out how to summon their wolf will be able to show us some impressive things.
Moving on to our four travelers from the Adventurer’s Guild, I was ecstatic to see that we weren’t given some stupid scenario where they just assume all monsters are bad. Sure, three out of the four probably exist to just give us some comedic relief, but nonetheless it still feels good to see some humans finally added into the mix. That said, who would have thought that we’d meet Shizu (Rimuru’s destined girl) so quickly? And who would have thought that’d she also be someone from Japan? Different time period than Rimuru sure, but that doesn’t change the fact that she’s also from the same world as him! Hopefully we’ll get to see some touching moments between the two if the story will give them some time to reminisce about the world that they came from. It also doesn’t hurt that Shizu is pretty darn good with that sword of hers too.
Overall, another damn good episode that just keeps on rolling forward. We have Rimuru’s village quickly expanding into something that’s similar to a city and there’s more than enough manpower ready to turn that into reality; there’s some new characters just waiting to show us what they can do; and the new girl who’s destined to be with Rimuru has a insanely traumatic past and apparently the fire demon Ifrit somewhere inside of her. Luckily it looks like we won’t have to wait too long to see just what that flashback at the end of the episode was about since next week’s preview makes it sound like something big is about to go down. In any case, I’ll catch you guys then!
