That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 54 Review

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 54 Review

Six Episodes of Meetings in a Row

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 54 is the final straw. This is going to be the last episode review I do for Tensura. There won’t be one for Episode 55 or any future episodes of the series.

I’ll still finish watching Season 3 and do an overall review of it at the end. But, I will not be watching any potential future seasons after that. I’ve never been a fan of Tensura, and the first six episodes of this season reaffirmed that. It’s just not a good series.

These first six episodes of the season are collectively about 1 hour and 40 minutes of content. And the vast majority of that content has been boring meetings. If I wanted to watch meetings, I’d go to my local council meetings. I watch anime for entertainment — something Tensura doesn’t provide.

I’m sure some people are going to think that I just want action. That’s not the case. Action is often a straightforward way to make a series more interesting. But, there are way more ways to do it than that. Yes, I like action anime. But, I also like drama anime and slice of life anime.

The problem with Tensura is that it usually doesn’t do anything to make itself more interesting. There’s not that much action, and when there is, it’s not that good. There’s not that much drama, and when there is, it’s solved within minutes.

However, the biggest problem is that the characters are so bland that I can’t get invested in them. Milim is — by far — the most interesting character because her personality is fun. But, the majority of the characters aren’t like her. And, there are way too many characters.

What Was the First Meeting Even About?

I watched Episode 54, went to have some lunch, and then came back to write this article. And, in that short span of time, I forgot what the main meeting of this episode was even about. It was so boring that I stopped paying attention.

After a quick refresher, it looks like most of the episode was about Rimuru’s plans for Falmuth being interrupted. We don’t know who’s interfering. But, someone’s at work behind the scenes trying to frame Tempest as the bad guys. Though, to be fair, they kind of are.

I don’t really see how this changes anything for Rimuru. If someone’s getting in the way, just eliminate them. That’s never been an issue before, so I don’t see why it would be one now. And, this is an example of the drama-less drama I was talking about.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who’s trying to interfere with Rimuru’s plans. As soon as their identity is revealed the drama will be over. They’ll either get killed or converted into an ally of Tempest. There’s no actual threat to Rimiru, his friends, or his nation.

This meeting also discussed Hinata Sakaguchi heading toward Tempest. As we know, Hinata doesn’t want to fight Rimuru. And, Rimuru doesn’t want to fight Hinata. But, there’s also the concern about the other knights who are following Hinata toward Tempest.

Based on what we saw at the end of this episode, I assume those other knights weren’t invited by Hinata. She seemed pretty set on going alone. And, we now know that Glenda Attley (another knight) is working against Hinata. So, the obvious assumption is that Glenda sent these knights after Hinata to ruin her meeting with Rimuru.

I Don’t Care if Something Is Finally Going to Happen

The fact that Hinata and those other knights are heading to Tempest probably means something’s going to happen. There’s probably going to be at least a bit of drama and some action. But, I don’t care anymore.

Why would I be invested in Hinata showing up in Tempest with powerful new abilities? We didn’t see her earn those abilities. We were told she acquired them off-screen. And now, we’re being told that she’s the human equivalent of a Demon Lord.

That’s what I like to call poor writing. Oh, Rimuru became a Demon Lord? Well, this other person who’s supposed to be Rimuru’s rival is also at that level now. How did that happen? Don’t ask questions. All you need to know is that it had to happen to keep things “interesting.”

The same meeting from a third angle from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 54
The same meeting from a third angle

Well, if you ask me, that’s not keeping things interesting. I’m not invested in Hinata’s growth because I didn’t see it. But, sure, there are many examples of characters growing off-screen that work. This happens all the time in One Piece, for example.

However, if you aren’t aware, One Piece and Tensura are very different series. What works in one doesn’t necessarily work in the other. One Piece actually spends a lot of time building its characters. Tensura doesn’t.

If you’re looking for a specific reason why this kind of growth doesn’t work for Hinata, let me break it down. Rimuru had to do some specific things to become a Demon Lord, like absorbing the souls of thousands of people. Hinata’s supposed to be on par with a Demon Lord. So, what did she do?

You can’t say she’s on Demon Lord level and not back it up. She must have done something to become that strong, right?

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Tensura Season 3 Episode 54? Are you done with the series like I am? Do you think it’s even worth continuing at this point? How many meetings is too many meetings? And, how do you feel about Hinata’s sudden jump in strength?

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 53 Review

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 53 Review

Meeting of Lubelius Knights

Okay, so I know I complained about the majority of the previous episode being a meeting. But, literally 99% of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 53 was a meeting. This season really is nothing more than a meeting simulator.

With that said, I actually didn’t find this episode to be as boring as the previous episodes. Though, I can’t say I knew what was going on the entire time. It looks like there’s a lot of stuff I’ve forgotten from the earlier seasons.

I mean, at least this meeting was about interesting stuff: The potential threat of Rimuru and Veldora. The meetings from the episodes before this one were all about mundane things like ensuring roads are safe. I don’t care about any of that small-scale stuff. I want to know more about the politics of this world on a macro-scale.

Now, this meeting of the Lubelius Knights didn’t go as I expected. They all agreed that Rimuru is very dangerous and that he’s an awakened Demon Lord. I thought there were more awakened Demon Lords. But, apparently, it’s only Rimuru, Guy, and Milim.

It could be that there are more who are awakened, but that their awakening isn’t common knowledge. Like, Carrion and Freya not being awakened is fine. But, are you telling me that Valentine isn’t awakened? That seems pretty unlikely. I’m sure someone will tell me if I’m wrong, though.

Anyway, at this meeting, they also all agree that Veldora is even more of a threat than Rimuru. And yet, the conclusion Hinata comes to is that Lubelius won’t act. She pretty much says that Rimuru and Veldora are too dangerous to fight, and so Lubelius won’t fight. That seemed pretty easy for Rimuru.

The Seven Luminaries’ Schemes

One of the things I forgot about that came up in this episode was the Seven Luminaries. That name sounds familiar, so I’m sure they were at least mentioned in a previous season. But, I have no recollection of Hinata defeating them and taking their abilities.

And, on a related note, I completely forgot that Hinata is an otherworlder unless this was brand-new information. I thought Shizu was an otherworlder who adopted Hinata in this world. I didn’t remember them both being otherworlders. Wasn’t there a whole plotline about Hinata not understanding how Rimuru and Shizu were from the same place?

I thought that was one of the major reasons why Hinata was Rimuru’s enemy. She thought Rimuru killed Hinata, yes. But also, she didn’t believe that Rimuru actually had something in common with Hinata. Well, I guess she believes him now, for some reason.

The Seven Luminaries

Okay, but, back to the Seven Luminaries. These old guys seem to be up to something. Reyhiem was supposed to have been converted to Tempest’s side. And yet, after the Seven Luminaries show up, he tells Hinata and the knights the truth. It wasn’t Veldora who destroyed Falmuth’s army, it was Rimuru.

That was odd. But then, the Seven Luminaries are also the ones who prompt Reyhiem to give Hinata the message from Rimuru. We don’t know what this message was supposed to say. However, my impression is that someone altered it. In it, Rimuru challenges Hinata to a duel. But, when we see Rimuru at the end of the episode, he seems surprised that she wants to fight.

Finally, Reyhiem suddenly dies at some point. So it seems pretty clear that the Seven Luminaries were using him to pit Hinata and Tempest against each other. Will it work?

The Dragon Buster

As part of their schemes, the Seven Luminaries give Hinata a special sword: The Dragon Buster. Considering they had just said that nothing could wound Veldora, I have to assume they meant nothing but this sword. So, it’s pretty obvious what they want Hinata to do.

They want her to die.

I mean, sure, they want her to slay Veldora, too. But, as Hinata points out, that’s likely only half of their plan. The best outcome for the Seven Luminaries would be for both Veldora and Hinata to kill each other.

So, what are the other outcomes, and how good are they for the Seven Luminaries? The next best outcome is probably for Hinata alone to die. She seems to be a problem for the Seven Luminaries. And, if she dies, it’s possible that they’ll get back the powers she took from them.

After that, there’s Hinata killing Veldora. Yes, Veldora is a huge threat to the world. But, is he a huge threat to the Seven Luminaries personally? I doubt it. They’re more concerned with Hinata. And, if Hinata slays Veldora and survives, that could actually be bad for them — it would make Hinata a true hero.

Then, there’s the possibility that things stay as they currently are. Both Veldora and Hinata would be alive, which is bad. But, at least they’re enemies — in theory. The status quo isn’t great, but it’s not the worst outcome.

Of course, the worst outcome would be for Hinata and Tempest to ally with each other. That’s the thing that the Seven Luminaries want to stop at all costs. This is also likely why they altered Rimuru’s message to her and gave her the Dragon Buster. They’re trying to antagonize both sides against each other.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Tensura Season 3 Episode 53? Even though this episode was all one, long meeting, did you find it more interesting than the earlier episodes? How do you think the Seven Luminaries are going to interfere next? And, what do you expect to be the outcome of Rimuru and Hinata’s meeting?

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 52 Review

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 52 Review

Magic Generators and Anti-Magic Barriers

At the start of this season, I said I wouldn’t be judging That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 based on the previous seasons. That’s still true. But, after Episode 52, the fourth episode of the season, I can confidently say this series still isn’t good.

Seriously, what happened in this episode? We got a poor explanation of a magic generator. And then we got a poor rundown of recent events. That’s it. There’s very little to discuss in this week’s review, much like last week.

Consider this. The highest-rated positive review for this season on MyAnimeList is by a guy called “PooPooSniff.” And in his review, he refers to the world-building and character development of this series as strengths. “Strengths” is a strong word. The world-building is fine. But, I wouldn’t say this series has good character development, by any means.

I generally don’t like to insult other people. But, sometimes it has to be done. Tensura enjoyers are braindead. Who’s watching this series and actually thinking it’s good? Do they like watching paint dry, too? There’s absolutely no reason that this season should have an average rating of 8.33 on MAL.

That’s higher than things like Fate/Zero, Redline, and Laid-Back Camp.

Anyway, enough about my hatred for this series. Let’s get into what happened in Episode 52. For the majority of the episode, Rimuru’s just having meetings with his inner circle. If you like sitting in on boring meetings, this is for you.

The only thing of note that comes up is the new magic generator technology. They take in magicules from the surrounding air and use them to run spells. The main spell they’ll be used to run is an anti-magic barrier spell to keep (bad) monsters out.

Releasing Veldora’s Magicules

Okay, let’s say something positive about Tensura. It’s really good at introducing one thing and then immediately introducing another that invalidates the first. This happens all the time in this series and goes both ways.

Sometimes a bad thing is immediately invalidated by a good thing. And, sometimes a good thing is immediately invalidated by a bad thing. In this particular episode, the latter is what happens. Right after the magic generator/anti-magic barrier solves the monster problem, Veldora invalidates it.

Like, immediately after. It’s literally the very next thing that happens within the same scene.

Allow me to explain the issue Veldora causes. The magic generator uses magicules for power. When there are fewer magicules in the air, fewer and weaker monsters spawn. That’s good. But, Veldora needs to release his pent-up magicules. if he does that, a lot of very powerful monsters will spawn. Thus, Veldora invalidates the magic generator.

Alright, so how could Veldora release his magicules without harming Tempest? There’s one, very easy solution. Rimuru’s already shown that he’s not above killing hundreds of thousands or even millions of people. So, why not have Veldora go release his magicules in the middle of an enemy nation?

That would solve two problems at once. Veldora wouldn’t feel like he’s about to explode anymore. And, an entire enemy nation would be wiped out, civilians and all. Seems like a win-win to me. I mean, nobody would even punish Rimuru for doing that — he’s a Demon Lord.

Sure, a Demon Lord like Valentine might go after Rimuru if he sends Veldora to Lubelius. But, as long as Veldora doesn’t attack the domain of another Demon Lord, it should be fine. And, once whatever nation it is no longer exists, Tempest can rewrite history.

Multiple Moves Being Made in Unison

Toward the end of Episode 52, Rimuru is trying to figure out how all the various recent events are related. The obvious answer, and the answer he settles on in the end, is that they’re not.

I mean, why would they be? Sure, someone was behind Clayman’s actions (the other nerd from Rimuru’s old world). But, why would Falmuth and Hinata have anything to do with that? I guess you could argue that Falmuth was being used. But, there’s no way Hinata would be.

And, it’s Hinata’s actions that ultimately lead Rimuru to determine that everything that happened was a coincidence. Or, maybe coincidence isn’t the right word. These different factions weren’t working together. However, they may have been taking advantage of the chaos each of the other factions were causing.

For example, Hinata had nothing to do with Falmuth’s attack on Tempest. But, the fact that Hinata was keeping Rimuru occupied made Falmuth’s attack go a lot smoother. I doubt their initial attack would have succeeded if Rimuru had been in Tempest at the time. And, of course, Clayman was the one trying to use this chaos to his advantage the most.

Okay, so, we have a lot more information than Rimuru does. We can see everything that’s going on in this world from a bird’s eye view. But, it’s not like Rimuru has that much less information than we do. After all, he has a super AI (Raphael) in his head.

It’s really only thanks to Raphael that Rimuru figures it out in the end. She points out all the different plans that got foiled due to Rimuru awakening as a Demon Lord. And, in turn, this shows Rimuru how many factions would have benefited from Tempest falling.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 52? Do you think this season is actually any good so far? What do you think the solution to Veldora’s pent up magicules is going to be? And, did you think all the events that happened to Tempest recently were related?

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 51 Review

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 51 Review

Diablo Causes a Civil War

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 51 was a very boring episode. Nothing really happened. It was all about Rimuru talking to his various retainers about mundane things. I wouldn’t even say any of these boring conversations were necessary.

So, I’ve picked out three of the more interesting parts of the episode to discuss this week. First up, we have the civil war Diablo’s trying to cause within Falmuth. I thought he was trying to install a puppet government. But, no. He has bigger plans.

I guess the ultimate goal is still to install a puppet government. After all, Rimuru had mentioned wanting to crown Youm as the King of Falmuth. That may still eventually happen. But, before we get there, Diablo’s going to have the lords of Falmuth tear themselves apart in a civil war.

How is he planning to do this? As we know, the lords don’t want to pay reparations to Tempest. Because of this, they’ve pushed the majority of the payment onto the former king. And, it’s likely that they would want to punish the former king even further for putting them in this situation.

However, the former king is now a viscount in a region bordering where Youm’s party is from. So, the plan is for Youm’s group (backed by a portion of Tempest’s military) will intervene when something happens. This will then lead to the deaths or imprisonment of all the problem lords.

At least, that’s my understanding of the situation. It’s a way for Youm to secure the throne of Falmuth without a full-blown coup. He’ll be positioned as the savior of the country, taking it back from the lords who want to hoard wealth and power.

Milim Just Wants Tasty Food

As I said, not much happened in this episode. So, next, let’s talk about Milim’s desire for tasty food. She gets all her food from offerings from her followers. But, her followers don’t cook the food — they simply offer raw ingredients.

In the past, that was fine. Either Milim hadn’t had good food before. Or, more likely, she’d only had it during special occasions, such as during Walpurgis. And, because of that, she didn’t mind all that much about getting raw food offerings. But, that’s changed thanks to Rimuru.

Rimuru introduced her to a lot of new, tasty foods. He also showed her that there’s no reason why she can’t have good food for every meal. So, now, Milim’s tired of the same old raw food. She wants her followers to prepare meals for her that she actually wants to eat.

Milim calling me her bestie

Of course, Milim could simply tell her followers that they need to cook the food they offer to her. However, as Rimuru pointed out, Milim’s not the kind of person to do that. She may be a powerful demon lord, but she doesn’t want to come off as ungrateful.

This is where her scheme comes in. The next time Milim visits Tempest, she’s going to bring a few of her retainers with her. And, while they’re there, Rimuru is going to have his people teach Milim’s people how to cook. Once they see how good the cooked food is, they’ll want to offer it to Milim themselves.

Will this plan work out? I have no idea and I don’t care. I can’t see this being an important part of the series. I’m sure it will come up again whenever Milim visits Tempest next. But, I doubt anything significant will come of it.

More Monsters in the Nation of Tempest

Toward the end of Episode 51, we find out that Rimuru wasn’t previously the ruler of the whole Jura Forest. Apparently, he was only the ruler of the part of the forest that sits on one side of the river. There’s even more forest to rule.

Now that he’s an official Demon Lord, though, the other Demon Lords gave him the entire forest as his domain. That means all the monsters that live in the other half of the forest now need Rimuru’s permission to live there.

Obviously, Rimuru would allow those monsters to keep living there as they always have. He’s not going to evict them from their lands. But, he can also now tax those monsters for living within his nation. And, he’ll be expected to use his power and influence to protect them.

The monsters that live within Tempest from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 51
The monsters that live within Tempest

Currently, there are Goblins, Orcs, Lizardmen, and Wolves that make up the core Tempest population. Humans, Dwarves, and some other races also live there. But, those four races make up the majority of Tempest’s citizens. Now, there are going to be even more monster races under Rimuru’s control. So, let’s meet them.

According to the preview of these races, there appear to be six or seven new additions. There are Minotaurs, Horsemen (not Centaurs), Rabbit people, Tengu, Bug people, and small children. Yeah, one of the “new races” we see pictured just looks like a human child, so I don’t know what they’re supposed to be.

I assume the majority of these races come from across the river. But, the Tengu are a little different. We know they live on top of some mountains Tempest is building a road passed. So, I guess Rimuru — via Benimaru — is going to bring the Tengu into Tempest, as well.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Tensura Season 3 Episode 51? Did you find this episode as boring as I did? Do you think Diablo’s plan to start a civil war in Falmuth is going to be successful? And, what do you think the child represents in terms of new races coming to Tempest?

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 50 Review

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 50 Review

The Three Vampire Demon Lords

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 50 was a pretty confusing episode, for me. As someone who watches quite a bit of anime, I often forget what happened in previous seasons. In this episode, that may have been an issue.

There was a lot of information dumped on us in Episode 50. And, I’m not sure if this is the first time we’ve learned a significant amount of it. If it was the first time, this info dump wasn’t structured very well. If it wasn’t the first time, then I forgot a lot.

Now, at the very least, I remembered that Roy Valentine wasn’t a real Demon Lord. I knew that Luminous Valentine was the Demon Lord and that Roy was one of her underlings who pretends to be a Demon Lord in public. I don’t think I knew that Roy had a twin brother.

Roy and Louis Valentine

Is that new information? It’s not exactly a big deal if it is. But, it would mean that Luminous Valentine has multiple Demon Lord-level underlings. As was reiterated in this episode, Roy may not have been a real Demon Lord. However, he was strong enough to be considered one.

Since Roy and Louis are twins, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume Louis is just as strong. And then, there’s Hinata. She was strong enough to defeat both Roy and Louis at the same time. So, I guess that means she’s Demon Lord-level, as well.

Something I kind of remember from Season 2 is that Laplace killed Roy. I don’t think that was new. I also have a feeling that we already knew the other guy who was reincarnated from Rimuru’s old world was a villain. Though, I remember nothing about that.

Holy Empire Lubelius

Episode 50 also gave us some good information about the Holy Empire Lubelius itself. How is it that there’s a Holy Empire led by vampires? That doesn’t make much sense, right? Surely, the vampires are tricking the citizens and using them for some evil scheme. That’s what Hinata thought, too.

Well, it turns out that’s not actually the case. After meeting Luminous Valentine, Hinata was convinced otherwise. The Holy Empire Lubelius is actually one of the most well-off nations. And, it’s due to a symbiotic relationship between vampires and humans.

According to Hinata, the vampires only take a small amount of blood from the citizens. So, it’s not that bad. But, the citizens also get a lot of benefits in return. The happier the human, the tastier their blood. This gives the vampires an incentive to make the humans’ lives better.

Demon Lord Luminous Valentine healing Hinata

Now, would the humans go along with this relationship if they knew the truth? Would they willingly give up their blood to a vampire Demon Lord? I’m not so sure about that. And, that’s why Luminous relies on the facade of the church. Humans are willing to do anything for a god.

Hinata is an example of a human who’s accepted her vampire overlord. Sure, at first, she intended to slay the vampire that was pretending to be a god. But, after learning more about how Luminous’s leadership benefits humans, she supported it.

This is proof that the citizens of the Holy Empire could come to accept vampires. However, that still seems unlikely. That would go against the teachings of the Church that Luminous built up. Would her subjects throw their faith away so easily? And, it’s not as if she could have built her empire without the Church, in the first place.

Another Nation Recognizes Tempest

At the end of Episode 50, we saw the Kingdom of Falmuth and Tempest sign a peace treaty. This treaty put an end to the war between the two nations and included the terms of the king’s abdication.

But, that’s not all it did. The most important thing to come out of the treaty was Falmuth’s formal recognition of Tempest. I don’t remember every nation that’s recognized Tempest. But, there are definitely a few, including Blumund, a small nation on Tempest’s border.

I’m pretty sure that Carrion’s, Freya’s, and Milim’s countries also recognize Tempest. They’re all allies of Rimuru, so that would make sense. And, if I’m not mistaken, Dwargon also recognizes Tempest. It would be weird if they don’t considering Dwargo is Rimuru’s ally and Dwargon has a relationship with Tempest.

The King of Falmuth and Diablo signing a a treaty from the anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 50

Every nation that recognizes Tempest makes Tempest stronger on the world stage. They help legitimize Tempest as a country. And, they show other countries that Tempest has allies. All of this together makes Tempest a more powerful, prosperous, and peaceful nation. And, that’s exactly what Rimuru wants. He doesn’t want to have to fight wars and struggle to survive.

Based on the stuff with Luminous Valentine in this episode, it looks like Lubelius might be next. Luminous got to see what Rimuru was all about during the Demon Lord meeting. And, what she might have seen in him is a path forward for her own country.

If Rimuru can build a nation where humans and monsters can live side-by-side, why can’t she? Again, she kind of shot herself in the foot by building a religion that demonizes monsters. But, perhaps Tempest can help change the Lubelius citizens’ minds about monsters. Then, they could accept Luminous as their leader.

Final Thoughts

What do you think about Tensura Season 3 Episode 50? Did you remember a lot of the information we got in this episode from the previous seasons? Do you think it’s too late for the Holy Empire Lubelius to change? And, which nation do you expect to recognize Tempest next?
