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.

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.

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?
