That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 43

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 43

Clayman the Puppet Master

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Part 2 Episode 43 was an alright episode. I think I would have enjoyed it more if TenSura actually had good fight scenes, which it doesn’t. Fights are built up and then don’t deliver.

One such fight was between Albis of the Three Beastketeers and Yamza of the Five Fingers. I know that we only got the first part of their fight and that there’s likely going to be more in the next episode. But I still don’t have faith that the next part of their fight is going to be any better.

Anyway, these are two pretty cool characters whom I’d like to see get a well-animated fight. Not only is Albis the leader of the Beastketeers, meaning that she’s probably the second strongest person in Eurazania, but it was revealed that she’s a Majin.

As for Yamza, he has a fairly cool character design. But what I like more about him is his personality. When he was first introduced, I didn’t think much of him. However, it’s been revealed that he’s actually a fairly competent strategist and leader.

Not only is he commanding Clayman’s army, but he’s coming up with backup plans on the fly for not just the battle, but his survival afterward. Defeat isn’t an option for Yamza because it means death or becoming nothing more than a puppet as Milim is currently.

So once things start going poorly for him, Yamza decides he needs to call in a powerful reinforcement (which fails). We also see that he begins considering what would happen if he abandoned Clayman and allied himself with another demon lord.

Yamza’s consideration of abandoning Clayman didn’t come off as him being a coward to me, though. It was more like, “why should he die for Clayman’s failed attempt at becoming a true demon lord?”

Decisive Victory

Obviously, things are going pretty well for Rimuru’s army right now. The main forces of his army are decimating the main forces of Clayman’s army, Albis and Gobta are fighting Yamza, Phobio and Geld are up against Tear and Footman, and Suphia and Gabiru are heading towards Milim’s followers.

The outcome of the main battle is pretty clear — Tempest is going to win. But as I pointed out in my review of Episode 41, that battle doesn’t really matter. Regardless of which army wins, the true winner is whichever side takes out the opposing commanders.

Of the fights between the commanders, I think the easiest victory for Tempest is going to be the fight against Yamza. He seems pretty cornered by Albis and Gobta. And on top of that, I think he’d surrender before dying on the battlefield.

The fight against Milim’s followers is one I could honestly see going either way. I do feel like the younger one of Milim’s followers present is going to end up joining Tempest later on. So even if they beat Suphia and Gabiru now, it’s not going to be a huge deal.

Tear and Footman are a problem. I don’t necessarily think Phobio and Geld are going to lose, but I don’t think they’re going to win either. I could see Gabiru having to drag Suphia away from their battle. Here, Tear and Footman will probably escape, not defeat Phobio and Geld.

Now, I do want to point out that Benimaru claims to have received a new skill that allows him to foresee everything the enemy is going to do in battle. For this reason, he thinks victory is assured. I don’t think that’s necessarily the case, though.

I mean, Benimaru hasn’t even started fighting, and he’s easily the strongest person there. But at the same time, anything could happen. Milim might even show up, which would be a huge issue for Tempest.

Tear and Footman

The fight I think could actually get some decent animation is the one against Tear and Footman. Why? Simply because it involves Geld. I’m not really sure why, but Geld is kind of the only character who regularly gets good art and animation in TenSura.

Whenever Geld has his armor on, he just seems to be drawn in more detail than anyone else — and I’m all here for it. Also, we previously got a cool scene of Geld showing what he’s capable of in Episode 34. Hopefully, we get something else like that here.

It’s hard to say where Geld falls in the power rankings of Tempest’s warriors. Rimuru, Veldora, Benimaru, and whatever the demon butler’s name is are probably stronger than him. But I’d put Geld at the same level as the other oni besides Benimaru (I know they’re called something else now).

Tear and Footman should be pretty strong opponents. In fact, I’d say that they’re strong enough that Phobio will have to be hard carried by Geld in this fight. After all, we saw Footman was able to stop Geld’s sword and then hit him hard enough to send him flying backward.

I’m not sure what Tear can do, though. Her abilities may have been revealed already in the first part of this season, or even the first season. However, if they were, I don’t remember. So I’m looking forward to seeing what she’s capable of and how she fights against Phobio while Geld and Footman go at it.

I’m still going to predict that Geld is going to go on a rampage and Tear and Footman are going to have to flee — and that they’ll do so successfully.
