That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 47 Review

I can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed and unimpressed with what I just watched. Is that all That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 has to offer? Maybe it’s the fact that it took so long to get to this point that’s the problem but Clayman’s beat down was not as impressive as it was supposed to be. I’m also confused as to why it took as long as it did considering how strong Rimuru’s forces were in comparison. We’ll talk more about that later. Let’s get on to the review!

Where can I watch That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47?

Crunchyroll is your best bet to catch this anime. They’ve been airing new episodes every Tuesday. Crunchyroll also has all of the seasons as well as dubs in a couple of different languages. I’m more focused on the most recent releases so the English sub is all I need. I’m happy with what Crunchyroll has to offer in this category so I can easily recommend it if you’re looking for anime’s most famous slime.

If you don’t want to go over to Crunchyroll, or for some reason you can’t, you can check out VRV. Their site connects to a couple of different streaming services so if you get a premium membership there you can access all of that content. Crunchyroll is one of the sites that they have an existing relationship with so you’re able to watch Slime episode 47. This might be the best option for you so make sure you check it out.

How was the story in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47?

A little confusing. It wasn’t confusing in the sense that Clayman got defeated by Shion. I was expecting that. I’m confused that the fight lasted as long as it did considering what was revealed here in episode 47. Yes, Milim was a problem. She’s obviously strong and was holding up Rimuru from doing what he needed to do. That still doesn’t explain why Shion was still fighting with Clayman.

You’ll notice that I didn’t mention Ranga’s fight because we do get a good explanation for why it was still going on. Clayman’s subordinate was doing her best to reach out to Ranga and Rimuru to get help. Ranga was just buying time for Rimuru to come over and free her from Clayman’s spell. I get that. I’ve got no issues with it.

Shion and Clayman, on the other hand, shouldn’t have gone on this long. If Shion was that much more powerful than Clayman, even when Clayman was at 100%, then she should’ve had no issue with taking on both Clayman and Viola. Beretta was an unnecessary addition to the fight. Assuming that Viola was weaker than Clayman, Shion should’ve dispatched Clayman’s ultimate puppet with ease. Why did Beretta need to get involved?

But Shion had to dodge all of Viola’s attacks!

In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47, we found out just how outclassed Clayman was. Shion did the whole “Is that all you got” shtick. Nothing Clayman did had any effect. Why, then, were we shown Shion on the defensive in episode 46? That just doesn’t make sense!

Viola might’ve been unloading attack after attack, but if Clayman’s attacks had no effect on Shion then why would a barrage of even less powerful attacks? That fight should’ve been over right when it got started. Not doing so gives us an inconsistent story. That makes this whole fight just feel, well, clumsy. I don’t like clumsy final fight scenes.

How did you like how everything went once the plot was revealed?

I feel like That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 swung and missed. The revelation that Milim was acting and Clayman was the one getting played fell flat. Maybe I was just perplexed over the inconsistent way the fighting played out, but the sudden shift to the lighter side of things was disappointing. It’s almost like Clayman quickly became an afterthought. Wasn’t Rimuru supposed to be mad at him?

Instead of finishing off Clayman like any angry person out for revenge would do, Rimuru allows Clayman the time to level up. Now he has to deal with a stronger opponent who could potentially take him down. Does no one in anime know how to finish off an opponent? This one was especially bad.

What did That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 get right?

As much as I just complained about Rimuru not finishing off Clayman, I am looking forward to the fight coming up next week. We still have yet to see what Rimuru can actually do now that he’s a demon lord. I want to see just how powerful the little slime has become since his evolution. Will he be on par with the other demon lords? We just don’t know yet.

With Clayman appearing that he’s made it to the next level, this will be the perfect opportunity for that to happen. Rimuru should be on par with at least a few of the other demon lords. The prospect that we’ll finally get to see that power is exciting. Will it be an even fight? Will we see Rimuru’s anger finally come out? That’s what I want to know!

What did That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 get wrong?

“That was it?” This is what I had in my notes on episode 47. Rimuru’s fight with Clayman was just one big letdown. Even the humor in Veldora’s moves fell a little bit flat. I know that I was supposed to get a kick out of the storm dragon using Street Fighter and Dragonball attacks, but it felt cheap. It was a forced attempt at humor that didn’t work.

Most of all, episode 47 suffered because it took so long for us to get to this point. Most of the emotion behind the fight had dissipated. Yes, Rimuru hates Clayman, but he’s had so many happy and cheerful moments since the destruction of Tempest that it’s not apparent at first. It’s not even apparent in this episode either!

What do you mean?

Near the end, Clayman is laying on the ground in a puddle of his own blood. He’s been defeated and Milim’s acting has been revealed. Rimuru, instead of finishing off his opponent or having Shion do so, is back being his cheery self. This shifts the entire feel of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 to the same. I sat there thinking “Why are they not finishing off Clayman before making this change?”

We’ve had episode after episode of Rimuru and his sycophants cheerfully going about their business. Now’s not the time for more of that. Episode 47 is when Clayman and Rimuru fight to determine which side is right. Will Clayman’s schemes play out or will Rimuru’s countermeasures win the day? I don’t want to see a bunch of cheerful garbage in the middle of a serious fight.

That’s pretty harsh!

I think I’m more just disappointed with how everything went in episode 47. I want to accuse everyone who was involved with the story as completely stupid for allowing Clayman to live long enough to get stronger. Has no one heard of waiting until the game is over before celebrating? You’d think that for someone like Rimuru, who’s put a lot into planning his revenge, that he’d want to leave nothing to chance.

Don’t even start about Rimuru’s comment that Clayman’s evolution was exactly as planned. To me, that was a cheap excuse for letting the puppet master live. So what if you’ve been planning on fighting Clayman after he achieved a new level of power. The perfect chance to kill him had just passed. It’s like Rimuru is part slime and part Saiyan. For those that don’t get that reference go watch one of the Dragon Ball series.

Is That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 47 worth watching?

I’ve been far more critical of Slime 47 than I have been positive. To me, this episode is a let down. It is worth watching just to get some finality with the story. At heart, I’m a completionist and if I start something I want to see it through to the end. That Time I Got Reincarnate as a Slime episode 47 may be disappointing, but I have to watch it to complete the series. For that reason alone its’ worth watching.

It’s not like everything here is that bad, I’m just tired of the Rimuru love fest. It was mildly entertaining to see Veldora take on Milim, even with the goofy attacks. It was fun to watch Clayman realize that he was totally outclassed. Episode 47 just had too much of the other stuff for my liking. Hopefully episode 48 will be a strong finish to the season.

The title of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 48 is “Octogram.” I’m not supposed to know what that means but I do since I’ve spent some time reading about this anime at different sites. I won’t spoil it here, but I do know that we’ll get a resolution of this whole story arc. We’ll get to see whether or not Clayman’s evolution will do him any good. Who are we kidding? If anime has taught me anything, Clayman will end up dead with Rimuru showing off just how powerful he is.

Don’t take that as me spoiling the plot of episode 48. I don’t know what’s coming at this point. There’s just years of experience behind my guess as to how things are going to end up. You’re probably expecting something similar yourself. We’ll see if That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 48 can deliver even with those expectations!

Now go watch some anime!
