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.

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.

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.

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?
