That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 6 dropped November 6, 2018, on Japanese television as well as being broadcast on Crunchyroll. This action adventure anime has made some steady progress after six episodes. Sooner or later this story is going to get to what we see in the opening and closing themes of the series, and I am excited for that.
A lot was happening nicely in the plot of this episode and the large number of characters get enough time to develop. The tone of the episode was mostly peaceful and the animation was perfectly executed. I will talk more about each area of this episode in my review for this action adventure anime series.
The trio of adventurers we saw in episode 2 make their reappearance in this sixth episode of the Reincarnated as a Slime action adventure anime series. A mysterious woman joins the trio on a mission assigned by the Kingdom of Blumund Guild Master to investigate the Great Forest of Jura. The trio and the mysterious woman meet Rimuru near the goblin village, and they each come to an understanding of what they’re doing.
Rimuru leadership skills are really helping to create a safe settlement for the goblins and the Tempest wolves. He also showed initiative to keep things peaceful with the humans investigating the area.
Rigurd has seemed to have increased in rank, Gobta discovered a new ability, and the rest of the goblins are working hard to help build their new home.
Kaijin and the other three dwarves are excellent blacksmiths and craftsmen building a strong village with great shelter, clothing, armor, and weapons for the goblins.
The humans that come to the village are named Kaval, Eren, Gido, and Shizu. They are surprised to see a slime is leading the goblins, and that the goblins, dwarves, and Tempest wolves are building a village with strong defenses. Also, Shizu reveals that she has a lot in common with Rimuru.
Tone & Themes
The tone of this episode is purely peaceful in nature, and it also has a comedic charm to give audiences something to laugh about. There is also a good amount of action that comes from the main character and the four humans that find the goblin village. The episode ends very dramatically with a flashback that includes a mysterious character who I am very curious to find out more about.
There are a few themes in this episode such as having a haven for those who are vulnerable to danger, building friendly relations with outsiders, and meeting like-minded people with similar experiences as yourself.
Animation & Sound
Now, this series has a unique animation style, so it all depends on your tastes in animation. But I got to say the animation in this episode was clean. The animators made sure that the animation was flawless in all camera shots and angles.
The action sequence where Shizu was fighting giant ants was animated well because I like that the ants almost looked lifelike and the flames from Shizu sword seem like something you would not want to come in contact with. And the black lightning coming from Rimuru was animated in a way showing how powerful and dangerous it can be.
I believe the sound effects were spot on with the rustling of clothing, with characters footsteps, the explosions from a deadly attack, the sound of the river flowing, the sound of fire burning, and the list can go on and on. They used the right music for peaceful moments, for comedic moments, and for the bit of serious moments that occurred in this episode.
That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime Episode 6 – Final Thoughts
I like that this episode was still enjoyable even though the main character hasn’t gotten into any real challenges yet. Since the main character is a slime with very powerful abilities, his display of power and his good intentions has brought goblins, Tempest wolves, and dwarves together to build for a better future in another world. The slime is now having talks with humans, so we’ll see how that plays out in the next episode and much later.
In this episode, the plot was engaging, the different characters were unique and helpful in their own way, the tone and themes were optimistically peaceful ideas, and the cinematography was something that the creators of this series were not lazing around with. I will give this episode a score of 9 out of 10.
