What’s the show? That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime, Episode 10.
So how’s this episode? So, uh some weirdness happens in this episode and I’m not even sure how to quantify it.
Hmm… okay then, well at least try. So aside from learning who attacked the ogre tribe’s village and the very cute and endearing scenes of Rimuru getting to eat and taste meat for the first time since reincarnating we are given the somewhat obligatory ‘Rimuru decided to give some characters names in order to level them up’ scene. And uh… it’s kind of dumb.
What do you mean exactly? Okay so, it takes all of Rimuru’s ~magicules~ just to level up the six ogre’s, that’s how strong they already are. But rather than giving them any kind of drastic change like it did when Rimuru named the Goblin’s, all it does is make them “sexier”.
Uh-huh, and why’s that a problem for you? Your a pervert, that sounds like it should be right up your alley. Because there was nothing wrong with them before! They were already plenty sexy, sure a little rough around the edges but they’ve basically made ~interesting~ looking sexy characters into *generic* looking sexy characters and that’s kinda lame in my opinion!
So you preferred them before, that’s the issue we’re addressing then? It’s not an issue of preference it’s the fact we were introduced to them in such a long winded way that it took an entire episode to even get to the ‘introductions’ stage and now they’ve spent nearly half an episode changing them to be sexier for ~reasons~. I don’t know it just kind of felt pointless to me.
Okay that’s enough about all that, what about the rest of the episode. Dare I say, equally pointless.
Gasp, such a reversal of fortunes, I thought you were fully on board with whatever direction this show was intending to take. So did I, until they introduced orcs (who are basically just pig-men) and a tribe of lizard peoples (who are exactly what they sound like). And you know what, I don’t care for either of them, honestly I’d rather watch a thousand hours of Rimuru aimlessly bouncing through tall grass then watch whatever the heck was going on in the second half of this episode.
You don’t like pigmen or lizardmen, that sounds pretty racist if you ask me! Whatever, it is what it is. Maybe the show will have a point to these scenes later on, but quite frankly this was the first time I was legitimately bored with this show. Focus on the characters you’ve just introduced (the ogres) rather than haphazardly forcing a bunch of new characters on top of the ones we just met! I don’t know, maybe I am racist for not caring about the plight of lizard people, but right now I’m still at a loss for why they are even included in the first place!
