Ah, I am remembering how much the light novel made me feel a hatred for humans as we pass through this part.

Now I understand the spoiler I've read back in season 1 about who fed all those lies about riumuru to hinata.

at least they had a kinda ok reason as to why hinata is so convinced that rimuru is a warui slime, rather than "that slime looks a lot like shizu so it must've killed her"

also i didn't expect to see tempest being razed to the ground today, but here we are

finally I hope that last scene meant we get to see our favorite tsundere dragon again

I am definitely not gonna watch this episode for a while, considering that I know the source I am gonna wait a week or two to watch it all at once.

Being able to kill anything in just seven strikes is pretty OP. And given what her special ability is, she probably isn't being serious at all since she didn't use a single skill beside this one.

Next episode's title is "Despair", sure bodes well. Rimuru will be fine of course, but by the time he gets to Tempest there may be nothing left.

Rimuru is kind of a idiot not taking the fight seriously and getting hit so many times

Hinata really skilled

Nice to see things finally happening. If the title of the next episode is any indication, things will only get worse.

Still though, why the episode refuses to show (I assume) dead bodies of the slain Tempest residence? Don't tell me that none of them were killed during that raid.

Wow, if I didn't like Hinata Sakaguchi before, I absolutely abhor her now. Stubborn, pig-headed, won't listen to reason, full of arrogance, and absolutely wrong. I do hope gluttony devoured her. People like her are hopeless, but stories do tend to make redemption stories about her. She did leave Shizue, so there was a screw loose there.


Also, in the OP, near the end, it looks like a grown-up version of Milim, with a horn like Shion. I wonder what Milim will play in all of this? I'm sure that she won't be too happy when she finds out what happened to Tempest.


Where is Benimaru in all of this? He is in charge of defense of the city, yet he is nowhere to be seen.


And no, I'm not embarrassed being human, as there are good and there are bad, as with any race or species. I do expect Falmuth to get invaded eventually in the grand scheme of things. I expect Blumund, the Dwarven Kingdom, Beast Kingdom (maybe), and Jura-Tempest to form an invasion force, which essentially surrounds Falmuth (sp. Farmus?). If Falmuth was idiotic enough to invade without realizing the other nations backed Jura-Tempest, then they are doomed to be destroyed. Of course, they are probably banking on the Holy kingdom to back them up.


Looking at the map,

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Will give a better idea of what Falmuth has gotten itself into.


I do expect major retribution coming.


Oh, btw, where is Diablo in all of this? He was teased so much in the last episode of last season and in the OVA. He can probably wipe the floor against Hinata. Not to mention Veldora should be coming soon, right? Right?



And what about Treyni? Why didn't she do anything?


So much is going on. I really can't wait to see what happens next. Let's see if any major characters have died. As is, it doesn't look good for Gobta.


Chloe Aubert is too young, so I expect her to not make an impact for a time to come. Also, if she is going to be part of the story in the future, I do expect some time skip eventually.

I've been wondering about that for a while. Milim's true form ?

Yeah, I kept expecting him to come in and save Shion or Shuna .

That's because he was subjected to the "Anti-Monster Barrier", so he couldn't use his full abilities. Also, Hinata has more experience in battle (especially against Monster), than Rimuru has against enemies with intellect.

Probably saving for later episode to increase impact.

There is a reason behind all of Hinata's extreme actions (including her leaving Shizue), which would be slowly revealed (through probably not until either later part of "Season 2 Part II" or in "Season 3", if my prediction is correct).

Was busy trying to contact Rimuru, but couldn't connect because of the Anti-Magic Barrier.

Should be appearing soon in the Anime (in around 3-5 episodes).

Probably would appear near end of "Season 2 Part I", or else start of "Season 2 Part II" later during July 2021.
Since the current OP already made it clear he would be appearing.

Because she doesn't stay in the City all the time, but dwells at her own place within the Forest. And probably can't enter the City currently either because of the "Anti-Monster Barrier".

The only thing i can say is that, her being itself is "Special".

A lot of times, as an anime only viewer, I do make points that either I prefer to spur discussion or just to air my thoughts. FYI, I don't exactly need a correct response on speculations, FWIW. Thanks, though.

The issue I have with this is that Treyni knows what is going on in Jura Forest almost all the time. She could attack the ones casting the barrier, since they look like they are outside the barrier.

I don't think Treyni's ever been show to be that powerful. She's never been in any of the fights.

Well, the main thing relating Treyni is that she is the "Protector/Guardian of the Forest". Its her job to maintain balance within the Forest and punish those who bring harm to the forest. And she can't really act against something without getting a clear picture.

The most she would have understood from that army coming inside the Forest is that, they have some business with Rimuru or are probably hostile to the City, but that doesn't mean they would harm the forest.
In the end, Treyni is a Dyrad limited to the forest, while she is powerful, she isn't really capable of fight an Army of hostile humans all by herself. Plus her job is only focused on the forest, not the city (its kind of like a area division of police within a city, Treyni has her own area to protect and Rimuru has his own though he is also the Superintendent of the whole forest, which means while Rimuru can interfere in Treyni's area, she won't interfere with Rimuru's area).

Even until now, Treyni has only acted when the whole Forest was in danger. She didn't act when the Goblins were suffering because of the Wolf (before Rimuru helped them).

If the idiot girl (idiot because she won't even listen to reason) didn't believe he was really Japanese, instead of just giving up why didn't he start talking about stuff that no regular slime could possibly know about? Talk about cities in Japan, tell her to ask him anything about their original world, etc.

Of course, the writer wants this fight so we can't have a common sense solution like that lol. Problem is, fights like this aren't really very suspenseful because do you really think the MC is going to be killed off? Not very likely. These shows tend to follow the formula of good guys initially kick ass, then something happens where they find themselves in trouble. Gets down to the wire, the day is almost lost then either someone steps in to rescue them or they get a second wind / hidden power and come back and wallop the bad guy or if the author isn't ready for resolution, one side slips away from the fight. I just hope this chick gets her ass beat; hard.

There is a specific Main Plot related reasoning behind this whole set-up, and it isn't just some random "writer wants this fight so we can't have a common sense" situation.

And all the reasoning behind why the events happen in that situation is explained later on as the story progress (probably won't happen in this Season though), including why Rimuru didn't try to explain more in-depthly or why Hinata wasn't even willing to listen to Rimuru.

I could also give another reasoning as to why Hinata wouldn't even believe Rimuru even if he forcefully tried to mentions stuff "about Japan cities, or about the original world", but i am not sure if its ok to mention them here as they could be spoiler.

Kinda dragging this fight out. What's more annoying is the "bad guy who's probably a good guy and is written too retarded to listen to MC" trope.
