That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 42

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 42

Milim’s Friends

Going into this episode, I was fully expecting it to be pretty boring. After all, I haven’t been impressed with any of the other episodes from Season 2 Part 2 so far. But, TenSura Episode 42 was actually a surprisingly good episode for what it was.

At the start of the episode, we learn that demon lords Milim and Frey are friends — at least as far as Milim is concerned. Milim is comfortable enough to barge into Frey’s room and brag about the new gloves she got from Rimuru, so they have to be pretty close.

There’s also the fact that Frey calls Milim her friend (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Of course, she’s going to call Milim her friend to her face. But the general way she seems to talk to and think about Milim implies it to be somewhat true.

And, if all of that wasn’t enough evidence that Milim and Frey are friends (to an extent), Frey also denies Clayman’s claim that she’s helping him because she hates Milim. Yes, she betrayed Milim. But she did so only because she owed Clayman.

You could argue that a betrayal is still a betrayal and that it shows Frey doesn’t really care about Milim all that much. But Frey also recognized that Clayman probably won’t be around for much longer since he’s getting on the bad side of multiple demon lords.

The way I see it, Frey betrayed Milim while knowing full well that Milim would come out the other side of this betrayal just fine. She betrayed Milim, but only so that she could watch Clayman be destroyed by his own ambition. Frey clearly isn’t a fan of Clayman.

Frey is the Best Demon Lord

I think before this episode I would have said that Milim is the best demon lord, and also best girl, of the series. But, now that we’ve actually seen Frey more than just her showing up to help kill Carrion, I no longer think that’s the case.

Frey is the best demon lord, and also best girl, of TenSura now. Just look at her character design and try to tell me that she isn’t the best girl of the entire series. There’s literally nobody else who even comes close to her as far as I’m concerned.

Her thigh-highs are perfect. I love her bodysuit. Her detached sleeves are cute. The gem on her forehead makes her face less bland. She has a nice smile. Her haircut is pretty. There’s literal gold on the tips of her wings. And, just like Shakira, her hips don’t lie.

The only thing I would change about Frey’s character design is the way her chest spreads out to the sides. I’m not a huge fan of when female outfits do that, but considering the rest of her character design, I’ll let it slide this time.

Although her character design is probably the thing I like most about Frey, I do like her personality as seen in this episode as well. Despite the fact that she seemingly betrayed Milim, I do like that she was nice to Milim.

I’m pretty sure that Milim doesn’t have many friends aside from Rimuru, so it’s nice to see that Frey is her friend too. Maybe once Clayman has been defeated and Milim is back to normal, we’ll get to see more of Frey and Milim interacting with each other.

Typically I don’t enjoy random slice-of-life content in series like this, but I don’t think I’d mind it if it was focused on those two.

Guy Crimson

In my review of Episode 39, I went over the concept that there are “10 great demon lords” in the world, and how that designation probably doesn’t include Rimuru since he just awoke. Well, if we ignore Rimuru, we previously knew of eight demon lords.

To refresh your memory, these are Milim, Frey, Carrion, Clayman, Valentine, Cromwell, Ramiris, and Kazaream. Now, a ninth (tenth, if you count Rimuru) demon lord has been confirmed: Guy Crimson. So, there should be at least one more demon lord to be revealed.

Back in that review, I also suggested that Kazaream may not have been included in that count because they were thought to have been dead. But, now I feel like they were. Kazaream seems strong enough to be considered a “great” demon lord.

However, I now have my doubts about whether Clayman is included in that category. Clayman is referred to as a rookie demon lord in this episode, which seems to imply that he’s not one of the “greats.”

Milim and Guy are among the oldest and strongest, Valentine and Kazaream are implied to be very strong as well, Ramiris has the respect of Guy for some reason, and Carrion, Frey, and Cromwell seem to each be relatively powerful.

Considering what I’ve been saying about Clayman this whole time — that he’s a chump — and how the other demon lords treat him, I have a hard time believing he’s one of the 10 great demon lords. I mean, we already know he’s not even a “true” demon lord.

Also, one last thing I want to mention is that we were introduced to the White Ice Dragon Velzard, older sister of Veldora and one of the four true dragons. I’m going to guess Milim doesn’t count as one of the true dragons since she’s only half dragon.

Conclusion

What do you think about That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Part 2 Episode 42? Which of the currently revealed demon lords is your favorite, and why is it Frey? And what do you think the other two dragons’ titles are now that we have Storm and White Ice dragons? Let me know in the comments.
