What’s the show? That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime, Episode 4.
So how’s this episode? It’s the breast one yet; sorry I mean the best one yet. I mean the plot’s still moving slowly but it’s only the tit of the iceberg—tip, tip of the iceberg! Ahem, sorry it’s just my mammary of this episode a bit of a jiggly haze, argh, all these damn typos I’m making a total boob of myself!
Preoccupied thoughts huh? Listen, I’m not going to pretend like this show isn’t taking its sweet time getting to an ~actual~ plot—but like I said in my episode 2 review and my episode 3 review—I don’t care. I’m used to slice of life shows, I could have a whole season of Rimuru just bouncing around with his over-powered little self getting out of sticky situations.
And do these “sticky situations” you speak of involve breasts in this particular episode? What ever gave you that idea?!
Don’t play dumb. Okay, yes, this episode has a particularly fan service heavy ending scene at a sexy Elven establishment in the Dwarf city that Rimuru and his friends have found themselves at. And so ~excuse me~ if I’m just a little bit happy that we’re finally getting some eye candy after an absolute drought of it (excluding Goblina from last episode).
Yeah that’s all well and good, nobody’s going to fault you for being happy about boobs (to your face at least) but presumably there’s the whole rest of the episode you should be talking about? Rimuru and his goblin x wolf crew ride up on the dwarven city of Dwargon, get into some trouble with some “tough guys”. Rimuru and Gobta are thrown in jail but Rimuru helps out some injured family members of the head prison guard. In return Rimuru is introduced to the local blacksmith, who Rimuru also helps out and is rewarded with the help he needs to help the goblin x direwolf village prosper as well as the aforementioned bevvy of elven boobs at an “elf bar”.
Why’d you put inverted commas around “elf bar”? Well that’s what the wiki synopsis said, but this is more like a ‘hostess club’ but I guess that’s not really a concept many people in the West would be familiar with.
Uh-huh. So overall thoughts on the episode the whole episode—not just the elf boobs? Tch! I’m consistently enjoying this show, slow pace and all, the fact that Rimuru seemingly is one of the most overpowered protagonists as far as having a convenient answer for (almost) every situation doesn’t deter me in the slightest. If anything this whole series is sort of some ~karmic~ reward for both having lived a life as a virgin and sacrificing his life for someone who ‘arguably’ had a lot more to live for (that being his work colleague from Episode 1). Sure there’s probably all manner of more deserving people in the world if you ~really~ want to be serious and pedantic about it and it’s absolutely pandering to its Japanese target audience—but who cares?! I’m having a lot of fun with this show and that’s all that matters to me.
