Mercy? Not today. Rimuru and his crew hold nothing back.
Rimuru surveys Falmuth’s army and prepares his magic. Meanwhile, the rest of Tempest’s crew begins their assault on the humans’ magical artifacts responsible for the barrier over the city.
The No Match: Benimaru, Souei, and Gabiru
Tempest’s elite fighters set out to take down the humans’ magical equipment in order to take down the distressing barrier above the city. Benimaru completely obliterates one camp by himself. Gabiru and his Dragonewts rain death from above. Souei’s threads literally rip people apart. The fights are one-sided and surprisingly bloody.
The Rematch: Monsters vs Otherworlders
Hakurou, Gobuta, Rigur, and Geld attack a camp where the Otherworlders are stationed. It’s grudge match time! The monsters, now unimpeded by a barrier, go off the rails and let loose. This particular encounter is quite gruesome as Rimuru’s crew shows no mercy and blood spills every which way. Hakuro’s fight is especially ruthless! And Geld is suddenly a badass. It’s great to see this side of the monsters since they are usually just cheerful and nonchalant. Now viewers see the awesome side! On the other hand, the viewers also see how disgusting humans and Otherworlders can be (e.g., Shogo’s despicable deed).
Megiddo (more like MegidDAMN)
Seeing the other monsters absolutely destroy their opponents is wonderful but the most satisfying moment still goes to Rimuru. As part of their plan, the solo slime will go up against Falmuth’s 20,000 soldiers. The leader of Tempest flies above the human camp watching over his buffet. The build-up is brilliant! Credits start to show on screen but a different song plays. Once his spell is prepared, Rimuru unleashes an attack devoid of mercy: Megiddo. The humans definitely angered the wrong slime.

Author's Rating: 9.1/10
This episode was ridiculously hype.
8-Bit did a fantastic job of animating the different fight scenes mixed with solid sound effects and creative moves. The mostly one-sided fights were still enjoyable to watch! Viewers were happily surprised with the amount of ruthlessness shown by Rimuru and his crew in this episode. Hakurou’s sword fight was short and dark. Geld’s ground and pound was wild devastating. Best of all, Rimuru’s secene was stunning! He definitely stole the show in the last few minutes as he prepped magic and a powerful yet emotional song (performed by TRUE) played in the background. When the word “MEGIDDO” showed up in the background the energy exploded (so did the viewers). Defeating — actually destroying — the humans was immensely satisfying.
The soul farming begins. Can the humans do anything against the mighty slime? Will Rimuru’s attack pay off? Will Tempest’s plan come to fruition? Find out next week!
