After 7 episodes into Season 3, the next episode will finally feature a rematch between Rimuru and Hinata. That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime featured a slow burn as meetings were held in the Jura and the Holy Empire of Lubelius. Although vital to the story, fans were overly eager for the action to return as many episodes featured debates and status establishments. Thankfully, Hinata has finally made her way into contact with Rimuru after outside forces try to get the pair to clash. 

A huge amount of tension has been climbing as each episode subtly introduced more characters and opposing factions. The story shows that there could be peace between Rimuru and Hinata, but both have been forced to resume their conflict due to outside manipulation. As these exterior forces work in the shadows, it will be interesting to see if a peaceful resolution can be found, especially as Hinata is slowly becoming reasonable in appearance.

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
