Rimuru attends Walpurgis with the sole goal of destroying Clayman. Of course, Clayman has plans to do the same to him. Who will emerge victorious and what will the other Demon Lords think?
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Episodes 45-48)
Episode 45 – Adalmann, the Index Finger
Ramiris takes a moment to bring Rimuru up to speed with all the other Demon Lords, however, he doesn’t have long to consider things as the doorway to Walpurgis opens and a maid invites them to enter. Meanwhile, Shuna has met with Soei and Hakurou to capture Clayman’s castle. On their way there, they walk into a trap set by Adalmaan, Clayman’s Index Finger Majin. He is an undead who commands an army of zombies, skeletons, and other undead beings. Shuna, however, is prepared for this and turns Adalmann’s magic back against him. With that taken care of, they turn to head to the castle. Adalmann and his army are surprisingly still alive. Even more surprising, they have been freed from this land and now seek a new god to serve. Looks like Rimuru has gained some new followers!
Episode 46 – Demon Lords’ Banquet ~Walpurgis~
Once everyone is seated, Clayman begins his story about how Carrion and Rimuru were conspiring to kill him and have been dragging the reputation of Demon Lords through the mud. Of course, Rimuru quickly dispels his lies and shows proof that Clayman has been the one to shame the title. Guy Crimson is pretty unmoved by the whole thing and decides that it’s Clayman’s issue and he should solve it with Rimuru. Shion takes the initiative and pummels Clayman. Once he’s recovered he brings Milim into the fight along with his other attendants. Guy creates a barrier so that no one can interfere, but then lets Beretta enter once he discovers who she really is. He also figures out the Noir is serving Rimuru. Interesting!
Episode 47 – Returning from the Brink
Veldora summoned himself to Rimuru to get the next issue of the manga he was reading and took Milim’s Destroyer punch to the back of the head like it was nothing. Rimuru was surprised but it gave him the chance to occupy Milim while he helped the others. However, they really didn’t need any help. Ranga had the fox under control, but it was struggling to free itself from Clayman, so Rimuru released her. Beretta had dismantled Clayman’s golem and was hoping that she could offer its body to Rimuru so that Ramiris could live in the Forest of Jura. That just left Shion and Clayman. How would she fare against a Demon Lord? Pretty well as it turns out. She’s more than just a secretary!
Episode 48 – Octagram
Rimuru refuses to allow Clayman the chance to escape and puts up a barrier around them. This ends now. Clayman tries to fight but his strongest attack is easily absorbed by Beelzebub. Rimuru gives him a chance to talk. Tell them who he’s working for and his death will be quick. Clayman refuses but shouts out several names as Rimuru closes in, begging for their help. Then, in an instance, it’s all over. With that out of the way, Walpurgis can continue although they don’t really have much to talk about. That is until Frey and Carrion ask to step down as Demon Lords and serve under Milim. Guy Crimson allows it but now they need a new name and that task falls to Rimuru. After a little consideration, he proposes Octagram and everyone seems to be in agreeance. At least now, Rimuru can return to Tempest and relax for a while…
Setting the Scene!
And that is the end of season two of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. For some reason, I sat on the second season. It’s true, the end of the first season was kind of lacklustre, but I let that taint the whole series when that really wasn’t the case. When I decided to finally watch season two, I revisited my old posts from my previous blog that I published as I followed it live and I appeared to be having a lot more fun than I remembered.
So, what are my lasting impressions from this season and will it stop me from diving straight into anything that follows. Well, let’s just say I am now all-in on the slime. I loved this season and I loved the first season, even more, this time around. I think it helped that I watched the OVAs and first cour of season two before going back and rewatching season one. Of course, I then rewatched the first cour… I know, I couldn’t help myself.
For this collection of episodes, I want to talk about how well they set the scene and prepared us for a pretty big twist. I say pretty bib because it wasn’t groundbreaking, but knowing the characters involved it was really well done. I am talking about Milim and her deception of Clayman. In episode 42, we saw Frey place the mind-control necklace around Milim’s neck and seconds later Clayman emerged cackling to himself, talking about his spell Demon Marionette.
He then started to pummel Milim, enjoying his newfound control over her. Supposedly, he used this to force Milim to attack Carrion, but then Frey intervened at the last second and we didn’t see what happened to Carrion. Rimuru seemed to think that he might be alive. Anyhow, when Clayman entered Walpurgis, he berated Milim and punched her in front of the other Demon Lords. Milim didn’t even flinch.
As we know by the end of the series, Milim was pretending to be under his control and doing an amazing job of it too. However, leading up to the reveal there were several clues and I thought they were very nicely placed, which is why I wanted to talk about them. The first was when Rimuru asked Raphael to analyse the spell that Clayman was using to control Milim. Raphael said that she couldn’t find the spell. Rimuru mocked her in his disappointment, but the fact was that there wasn’t a spell, which is why Raphael couldn’t find one.
This was proven to us a little bit later when Rimuru went to assist Ranga who was fighting a fox spirit that was begging for his help. Raphael instantly located the spell Demon Marionette and asked if Rimuru wanted her to break the spell. He said yes and she did it instantly. If you recall the events of episode 42 which I just mentioned, that was the same spell Clayman used on Milim…
There were two other clues that were quite clever and I’m going to mention them here. After Veldora arrived and got in the way of Milim’s punch, Rimuru asked him to entertain Milim, but not to hurt her as she was being controlled by Milim. Veldora could tell she wasn’t and tried to tell Rimuru, but he had run off to deal with Clayman. The final clue was far more subtle and could have been easily missed. Ramiris wanted to enter the fight, but Guy wouldn’t let her. She complained that Milim was in there, however, Guy pointed out that Milim had gone of her own free will. I doubt, Guy would be fooled by something like this, so he was saying that he knew something was going on.
So, this is my last post like this for a while in regards to That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and I feel like I can’t walk away without mentioning Veldora fighting Milim with Hadoukens and Kamehamehas. That was hilarious. Veldora has very quickly become one of my favourite characters, but even he couldn’t outshine Shion as she belittled and mocked Clayman when he attempted to gain control of her mind. Shion is just incredible.
