Rimuru just doesn't even know how powerful he is. For those he named to evolve as much as they have, he must have been quite a bit more powerful for that to have happened. We can see that when Gelmund named Gabiru, Gabiru didn't look like he evolved that much. It took Gelmund many trials before he finally got the Orc Lord.


Hence, when Rimuru keeps on being surprised at how powerful everyone is and is concerned to be on their bad side, it makes it seem like he doesn't even understand how powerful he is. Hopefully, we'll get a better look at his true strength in the next episode.

this is also my thinking
after all, he never get any chance to measure out his/her strength
it's still fun to see Benimaru showed off his power though
even Emo Souei looks cool should be able to score some affection points from Gabil's imouto

^ also he still got the "human mentality" which effectively refrains from exerting his power and abilities.

For example, with Black Flame and Black Lightning, Rimuru was like "Yeah.....better not use this too much"
The monsters like the Kijin, on the other hand, would probably be "Heck yeah, this is destructively awesome, let me swing it around some more"
=> the results are what we have seen

I see someone post there will be a slime OAD out 03/29 next year, don't know if it is true or is it part of the anime series or directly from the manga/novel.

answer my own question, part of the limited edition manga #11, about sumo wrestling in Tempest.

Civil engineering, or how to build a city from scratch.

Step 1: be an overpowered isekai protagonist.
Step 2: use your OPness to gather a bunch of intensely loyal minions.
Step 3: use your OPness to hire genius artisans.
Step 4: let them get on with it.

I mean, Rimaru is basically engaged in civil engineering here, isn't he? He's re-shaping a society and building it from scratch, forging a union between independent groups, sourcing talented artisans to execute the vision... That's civil engineering.

There is an interview with Fuse in it, so that's probably why it's the cover.
Tensura has some weird collaborations, there is even one with a life-insurance company.

It might have been if MAL scores were ever worth anything less than dirt. I mean SAO is still considered the better show going by that same metric so...

You seem to be mixing up "members" with "score". On MAL "members" refers to how many people added a show to their list, while "score" refers to the evaluation given by the people who watched it and rated it.

SAO is also a sequel while Slime is a new show and an "isekai" that just so happens to start right after the last trash isekai Hykuren something something Valkyria aired in summer, leading to most people outright skipping Slime in the beginning. In that regard Slime probably helped Shield Hero as well, because it lightened the isekai-stigma a bit.

Except AceTrigger said scores not members, the later which I said nothing about. I understand how MAL's score system works and my point still stands. I was also referring to the first SAO not the new season that's carrying baggage from how people perceived the first.

Slime is not gonna change anyone perception of genre especially because it lacks many of questionable content people have come to loathe about the genre beyond the bland OP MCs and satellite harems that revolve around them. Stuff like protaginsts engaging in actual slavery and justifying if for starters. Slime gets by being a charming lighthearted show with great animation and spending less time having every character praise Rimuru or making him edgy.

Slime doesn't very much set itself apart from its peers other than being executed well enough for viewers to overlook its derivative aspects and avoiding uncomfortable red flags. Unfortunately given stuff that have a high chance of being adaptation and what is being adapted it will simply remain one of few bright spots in the genre.

Then I have no idea what you are even talking about, because you are completely wrong.

SAO Score: 7.59
SAO II Score: 7.17
SAO Ordinal Scale Movie Score: 8.01
SAO Alternative: Gun Gale Online (different author) Score: 7.31
SAO Alicisation Score: 8.12

NGNL Score: 8.38

Re:Zero Score: 8.39

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Score: 8.42

So how exactly was SAO considered "the better show going by the same metric"? It seems you didn't even bother to check to make sure your claim is actually true... how am I supposed to react to that?

That doesn't quite add up considering many people in the West quite like the source material of Shield Hero despite both being edgy and having the protagonist engaging in "actual slavery". I don't think many people actually care about these points as much as you seem to think they do. If people didn't like these points, then people would detest the source material as well.

Also in regards to Slime, considering some of the stuff that Rimuru did in the WN version much much later on, Slavery actually sounds almost nice in comparison.

Are you refering to the completely irrational cherrypicking of specifically complaining about "the setting" only for isekai, while caring more about "story and characters" for everything else?

I don't know how it started, but for some reason many people complain about the setting of isekai like "being given overwhelming power without having worked for it" when transfering to the otherworld, but the same people have no problem with the setting of Lelouch and Light "being born intelligent without having worked hard for it" and also "being given power (Geass & Death Note) without having worked hard for it".

For some reason only for isekai, people complain about how the protagonist gets their power, while for every other genre it is about how they utilize it. I suspect some anime-youtuber is probably responsible, as always.

So how exactly was SAO considered "the better show going by the same metric"? It seems you didn't even bother to check to make sure your claim is actually true... how am I supposed to react to that?.
Last time I checked SAO was in the high 80s. It's still a nonsensical comparison since scores are high violatle and dependent membership data. If one show scored 9.00 from a total of two members scoring versus another which had 7.59 from say all 100 members it doesn't mean the former pericived as a better show. Let alone being more popluar. This not even taking account review bombing bots and other things that in flat scores.

SAO is the vastly more popluar show even on MAL, but none of scores are going to tell you this because MAL system is manipulatable and its sample sizes run independently of each other. If you want seriously take about popluaroty use a better barometer like sales data. MAL scores are only something someone who is either ignorant about its pointless beyondhow those viewers feel specifically about the series itself or desparate for validation.

SH is not very popluar in japan and only relatively more so in west, but LN are not mainstream to began with there. Even then in the west is plenty contestion series and things I've metioned aren't the only issues have with the series, they are just examples of some. There are a lot of people who feel the story nosedives fairly early storywise.

Well the anime is not based on the WN so it's not relvant. In fact its not based the LN either, but on the manga. Rimuru's personality apparently has notable differences for it.

Nobody is cherrrypicking anything. WN section on AS, Narou readers and industry in general know that modern isekai are deravtive as hell. The vast majority of them you gonna find a combination of worlds infused with game mechinacs, harems, john smith style MCs who become OP after going to another world thus have it revolve around them, to the point where the genre was even banned from a writing contest. When you over saturate market with patterns of the same thiing of course people are gonna notice and feel fatigue.

The only ones have escaped this stigma are stuff have expectational writing, isekai that have less of those elements or are just obvious parodies.

That said this might be getting a little off topic here.

The planning and construction of the hobgob village, streets, water ways, agriculture, and such is civil engineering. The shaping of society's interactions and its mores is social engineering. Two entirely different disciplines, one dealing with physical sciences and the other psychological sciences. (long time civil engineering professional; both municipal and private sector)

the magazine titled "anime and civil engineering special issue", anime mentions beside slime also included Astroboy, Patlabor the movie 2, Girls und Panzer, etc, Slime on the cover because the Fuse interview, also remember, Satoru in his former life deals with construction/architecture. I believe they mention that in the novel before they go recruit the dwarfs.
