Well, I’ve got a gap in the schedule for this week, so I suppose some restructuring is in order.
Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Episode 10
I think this adaptation has spoiled me, since I’m starting to feel like I’m missing out whenever Rimuru is in human form. The slime expressions in this show are just too good. I know I should feel sorry for the guy, since he’s finally regaining his sense of taste, but I’m starting to think he should just stay as a slime.
This masked majin actually does a decent job of characterizing the different races. In this episode, we see that this guy, Gelmud, has offered to name quite a few monsters, and each one has a unique response. Benimaru, the proud and cautious oni, rejects the offer. The orc, desperate for power, gathers his fellow orcs to take over the surrounding area. And the lizardman just slacks off with his power. Uhh…did we ever meet the goblin who was named?
The oni are some of my favorite characters in this series, so I’m happy to see them finally joining. Rimuru’s monster community is really starting to come together.
Hmm, I’m having flashbacks to the second season of Overlord.
Gaikotsu Shoten’in Honda-san General Impressions
I figured I’d give a quick plug for this show because I think it’s a lot of fun. I’m no longer in a customer service position, but I have “fond” memories from some of my previous jobs. If this series has taught me anything, it’s that my past experiences pale in comparison to the trials of the bookstore employee.
I really like how this series blends the stress of customer service with general commentary on books. It’s funny to see the characters panic when faced with situations like decreasing interest in physical books, since I’m someone who went from primarily reading physical books to primarily reading digital books. Go ahead and string me up if you have to…I probably deserve it.
The reversible bookmark story is probably my favorite one in the series so far. It’s always bad with customers, but the immediate shift in behavior when someone realizes that they’ve made a bad assumption is pretty much universal.
