That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 44

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 44

Dragon Faithful

In my review of Episode 43, I made some general predictions about how the three main battles were going to go. Some of these predictions were correct, while others weren’t as correct. So, let’s look at the fight featuring Suphia and Gabiru first.

I said that I felt like this fight could go either way. Gabiru and Suphia aren’t the strongest, but they’re strong enough. And as for Middray and Hermes, we didn’t really have a good sense of their strength just yet. I also mentioned that Suphia might lose, and as it turned out, that’s what happened.

However, I assumed that Gabiru would have to rescue Suphia and flee. That didn’t happen. Instead, while Suphia was easily defeated by Middray, Hermes was easily defeated by Gabiru. So, I think since their fight ended 1-1, my guess that it could have gone either way was pretty close.

I will say, though, that Middray probably could have defeated both Suphia and Gabiru at the same time if they kept fighting. In the end, it wouldn’t have been all that close, so my prediction is only “correct” because the fight ended when it did.

The outcome of the fight aside, we also learned that the Dragon Faithful — Milim’s followers — are actually descendants of dragons themselves. Furthermore, they’re very similar to the Dragonewts who take on human forms.

And, something Middray mentions is that his subordinates are too weak to transform into their dragon forms. So by that logic, we can assume that a powerful descendant of dragons, like himself or Milim, can. I don’t believe we’ve seen Milim’s full dragon form yet.

Oh, and Middray’s claim of being as strong as Milim herself was bold

Albis the Majin

I’m sure it was explained early on in the series, but I’m still not exactly sure what a majin is within the context of TenSura. It’s someone who has a large amount of magical power and who tends to align themselves with a demon lord.

I guess anyone can just be born as a majin? Since Albis is a majin, we know that the title isn’t solely used for humans who have a high magic potential. But have we met any other majin so far who weren’t human? Albis is the only one I can think of.

Actually, Middray might have been stated to be a majin within this episode. I don’t remember, and I’m not going to go back to check. But if he was, then he’d be another non-human majin. And I guess we don’t know what Laplace, Tear, and Footman actually are.

As far as I know, Yamza is a human majin. But, he’s not a very strong majin, as we saw. Albis is far stronger than he is (was?). And if you consider that someone like Benimaru is infinitely stronger than Albis, would that mean Benimaru counts as a majin?

Anyway, I correctly predicted that Albis was going to defeat Yamza. That was the battle I was most confident in the outcome of considering we got to see the first part of the fight in the previous episode. But what I didn’t expect was for Yamza to be killed.

I fully expected him to surrender to Albis, and that’s exactly what he did. But Clayman didn’t take this betrayal very well and proceeded to use Yamza’s body to summon a piece of the calamity Charybdis. When this happened, Hermes stated Yamza’s soul was destroyed — and since Charybdis was also destroyed, I’m pretty sure he’s dead.

Benimaru is Overpowered

Obviously, Benimaru is weaker than Rimuru, and therefore I guess weaker than some of the other demon lords. I was going to say that Milim is an example of a demon lord who’s stronger than Benimaru. But, the more I think about it, the less sure I am that that’s the case.

I don’t remember all that much from the first season and the first part of the second, as has probably become clear from both this review and my previous reviews of this half of the season. But, I’m fairly sure that although Milim got the credit for defeating Charybdis, it was actually Rimuru.

Why is this important? Simply because it would mean Rimuru is stronger than Milim. So Benimaru can be both weaker than Rimuru and stronger than Milim without messing up how they compare to each other. But, there’s more to it than that.

Remember how Middray claimed that he was on par with Milim? What if he wasn’t exaggerating? It would mean that someone as strong as Milim considered a small fragment of Charybdis to be a threat. And who easily defeated that piece of Charybdis? Benimaru.

I know that when Benimaru and Middray come face to face, they treat each other as somewhat equals. However, I’m going to give Benimaru the advantage specifically because he defeated the Charybdis fragment in two attacks.

Basically, what I’m getting at is that Benimaru is on par with if not stronger than one of the demon lords who’s already been stated to be one of the strongest. For all intents and purposes, Benimaru is a demon lord. He’s one of those “fake” demon lords like Clayman.

I also noticed that Clayman has a lot of oni working for him. So will they follow Benimaru instead once Clayman is defeated?
