Catching with with Slime and IndexIII

Now that the new shows have been taken care of, it's time to return to the follow-ons. First it's Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken, which left us at a big confrontation between the Orc Lord and Rimuru. First, though, the show has to deal with Gelmud, who pops up and starts cursing everybody for letting … Continue reading Catching with with Slime and IndexIII

One time when he returns he brings Yuu a jar of liquid, and one day a cute little fairy thing called Merc pops out … Continue reading One more new show, then a couple ep2-3s
