That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3 Episode 2: Release Date, Recap & Spoilers

In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3, Rimuru faces new challenges with the reappearance of the Western Holy Church and the Saint, Hinata Sakaguchi, whom he previously fought.

With Veldora and Octagram supporting him, Rimuru faces the challenge of protecting his friends and loved ones from the monster-hating church.

In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 1, titled Reparations, Rimuru remains at Walpurgis, where he’s occupied with analyzing recipes with Raphael to utilize them in the future and keeping Milim from indulging in alcohol.

Eventually, Rimuru happily returns to the Jura Tempest Federation, where Diablo congratulates him on joining Octagram.

During a meeting with Veldora, Shion, and others, Diablo discloses that Veldora shared information about Walpurgis with him in exchange for three matcha puddings.

Rimuru temporarily bans Veldora from having pudding, much to his disappointment. Diablo then recounts his mission, which leads to a flashback.

He accompanies the survivors of the Kingdom of Falmuth’s army back home, including the current king.

Along the journey, Diablo restores Razen and the Western Holy Church’s Archbishop’s bodies and has them swear their allegiance to him.

Upon reaching the throne room of Falmuth, the nobles are astonished by the king’s condition. Razen, Archbishop Reyhiem, and Youm concoct a story about Rimuru rescuing them from Veldora after their army was decimated.

They propose peace terms with the Jura Tempest Federation, leveraging this fabricated narrative. However, the nobles resist, and Razen quickly freezes the noble who insults Rimuru before Diablo can react.

Diablo then approaches the king and administers a full healing potion from the Jura Tempest Federation, restoring the king to health. The nobles are left in awe and fear at the display of such remarkable healing power.

Diablo delivers a message from Rimuru, presenting them with an ultimatum: either abdicate the throne and pay reparations, become a vassal state of the Jura Tempest Federation, or face destruction in war.

Despite their protests, he firmly establishes the deadline, giving them a week to decide. In the present, Rimuru discusses the outcome of the ultimatum with Diablo, predicting that Falmuth will likely choose the first option and assign the abdicated king to handle negotiations.

Meanwhile, Rimuru comforts Veldora, who is still sulking, by offering him a pudding, which greatly delights Veldora.

The first episode of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime concludes with Rimuru entrusting the Falmuth situation to Diablo, while Veldora happily devours the pudding.

Expectation

In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 2, titled The Saint’s Intentions, the storyline is expected to kick off with intense discussions in Falmuth as they grapple with Diablo’s ultimatum.

With the restored King able to provide firsthand accounts of the Jura Tempest Federation, Falmuth must carefully consider its options.

As Diablo pointed out, without an army, continuing the war is futile, leaving alliance and restitution as the only viable paths forward.

As the title suggests, the return of the leader of the Ten Great Saints of the Western Holy Church, Hinata Sakaguchi, is also likely.

Having previously crossed paths with Rimuru, Hinata’s reappearance suggests a new confrontation.

Learning of Rimuru’s continued existence, Hinata will likely convene with her fellow Saints to address Veldora’s reappearance as well as strategize against this new Demon Lord.
