Episode 7 of That Time I Got Reincarnated a Slime, true to its title, was filled with despair for Rimuru who saw Tempest attacked, but the eighth episode offered glimmers of hope. As the first part of season 2 approaches its closure, the stakes are higher than ever. We've gathered all the information you need about the Isekai fantasy anime before the release of Episode 9 next week.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Overview and Episode 8 Recap
In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime we follow a man in his late thirties who is murdered, then reincarnated from a relatively purposeless life into a colorful one where he can prove his worth. The only setback is that, as the title explains, he must now live as a slime.
In his new, magical world, however, this form comes with perks. Using a spell called "Gluttony," our main character can devour anything and assume its form. After befriending and helping a dragon, he's given the name Rimuru Tempest and has many adventures.
In Episode 8, titled "Hope" Rimuru visits the wounded and heals them. He finds out that Shion, Gobzo, and many others are dead because of the attack. However, Eren tells him that there might be a way to resurrect them. The chances are pretty slim and Rimuru would have to evolve into a demon lord and kill many, but a new attack to Tempest might provide an excuse.
After imprisoning Mjurran for her betrayal of Tempest, Rimure eventually decides to spare her as she was Clayman's puppet. Removing the artificial heart that allowed Clayman to control her, he sets her free.
