That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 45

Additional Demon Lords

It seems like every week now, we’re getting more demon lords to add to the list. Previously, we had Rimuru, Clayman, Carrion, Frey, Cromwell, Valentine, Ramiris, Milim, Guy, and Kazaream, making 10 known demon lords.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Part 2 Episode 45 introduces us to three additional demon lords. These are Lurus/Milis, Dagruel, and Dino. So, there are 13 current demon lords despite the official title of the demon lords claiming that there are only 10.

How does this work? Well, the 10 official demon lords are Clayman, Carrion, Frey, Cromwell, Valentine, Ramiris, Milim, Guy, Dagruel, and Dino. Rimuru is brand new, so he isn’t counted yet. And as for Kazaream and Lurus/Milis, while they’re still alive, they’re thought to be dead.

Starting with Lurus/Milis the first thing of note is that we don’t actually know her name. But, we know Valentine took over her domain and she’s now apparently serving under him. My guess is that she’s the one who turned him into a vampire and is pulling the strings from behind the scenes.

Dagruel is a giant and he’s strong enough to have fought Veldora multiple times. Other than that, we don’t really know anything about him. Though, I don’t believe we saw him bring any attendants. So perhaps he’s more of a loner.

And lastly, we have Dino, who much to my disappointment isn’t a dinosaur. As Ramiris explains, Dino is the only demon lord who’s lazier than she is. And while she doesn’t want to be compared to him in any way, it seems like the two of them are on good terms. They tease each other, but it’s all in good fun.

Adalman the Faithless

While Walpurgis is starting, Shuna, Souei, and Hakurou make their way towards Clayman’s castle. Before they reach it, however, they’re surrounded by an army of the undead led by one of Clayman’s Five Fingers, Adalman, the Index Finger.

Considering how the fight against the previous member of the Five Fingers went, I knew from the start that Adalman wasn’t going to be a major threat. The oni who serve under Rimuru are all far stronger than Clayman’s Fingers.

But, I can’t say that I was expecting how this fight would progress. In fact, I was just as shocked as Adalman was when Shuna started using holy magic. After all, holy magic is supposed to be what humans who are part of the church use to eradicate monsters.

However, after only a few seconds of thought, I realized that Shuna’s use of holy magic actually makes sense. She literally wears the outfit of a shrine maiden.

I can’t really say I was a fan of this fight or of Adalman himself, though. Apparently when he became undead he just never tried to use holy magic and assumed that he wasn’t able to because he was no longer human. That was a pretty bad development.

But what made it worse was that Shuna’s explanation didn’t really add up with what Adalman said. He claims to have lost faith in his god before his death and even now he’s searching for a new god. But Shuna says anyone who has faith can use holy magic regardless of their race.

So, how was Adalman able to use holy magic again? Even if he now realizes that he can use it as an undead, he’s already admitted to having lost his faith. So what’s the source of his newly rediscovered holy magic? Does it simply rely on faith in one’s ability to use it?

Walpurgisnacht

Moving back over to Walpurgis, there are a few interesting things we saw. Of course, one of them is that Valentine’s maid has a higher magic output than him, which is why it’s assumed that she’s actually the true demon lord of the two.

What we don’t know is where exactly that places Valentine among the demon lords. He’s clearly strong. But is he even a real demon lord? Or is he like Clayman in that he’s a demon lord in name only while his master is the one with the actual title?

The other attendant who turned heads was accompanying my favorite demon lord, Frey. I don’t believe we’ve seen Carrion in his beast form yet. But, it’s heavily implied that the beastman who shows up to Walpurgis with Frey is Carrion.

We don’t know what happened to Carrion after he was defeated by Milim and Frey. But it does make a lot more sense for him to have become a captive than for him to have been killed. Clayman, specifically, wouldn’t want to waste such a powerful pawn.

My assumption is that Carrion is being controlled by Frey in the same way that Milim is being controlled by Clayman. However, if that really is Carrion, it’s interesting that Frey is making him act as her assistant rather than in his role as a demon lord.

Isn’t the whole purpose of controlling Milim so that Clayman has more sway at Walpurgis? Using Carrion in the same way seems like it would be beneficial.

And imagine if Milim showed up with Clayman and just stood by the door rather than taking her seat at the table, everyone would be confused. So why isn’t the same happening with Carrion? Surely the other demon lords know what Carrion looks like.

Conclusion

What do you think of TenSura Season 2 Part 2 Episode 45? Do you think even more demon lords will be revealed in the future? How do you feel about Adalman? And do you think the beastman with Frey really is Carrion? Let me know in the comments.
