Last week on One Punch Slime, Rimuru ate his new friend Veldora, a dragon imprisoned by a sorceress, until he can break the spell. Along the way, Rimuru eats monsters to power up and runs into a village of goblins that ask for his protection. This week, Rimuru faces off against the direwolves that threaten the lives of his new friends.
One Punch Slime remains one of the best titles of the fall anime lineup as this episode balances multiple genres effortlessly. Fantasy, Comedy, and Adventure collide as Rimuru joins forces with the goblins and flexes some of his abilities against the wolves. The battle is quick but that’s perfectly fine since the rest of the episode is spent laughing at Rimuru as he names the goblins, (which is something another particular fantasy series this season ought to be doing but what do I know?).
I really wonder what’s next for Rimuru in the long run but perhaps these hilarious moments only serve as the calm before the storm. The opening sequence suggests many events lie in store for viewers and I’m eager enough to stick around.
