After 5 episodes of sitting around and discussing politics, finally something has happened...

I guess this is why people prefer to read LNs where they don't need to wait weeks for the climactic action scenes.

How do you spend this much time on pure talking?

I'm kinda amazed. They really pulled me into the series with the Harvest Festival. Now I have to question why the hell I'm continuing to be dragged along in boring talks that last episode didn't even go anywhere. Whose idea was it to make an entire 6 episodes of talking about the same fucking event before something actually happens? Even in SoL they get up and move or do something in between all the talking, but for some reason here they just keep going and going and it never ends. It's like a weekly job.

Keep seeing this and get reminded of the similarly laid out Shinsekai Yori scene.

clearly not set up to watch weekly, best to wait and marathon at once, then these 'talking' eps wouldn't stick out as much

I wouldn't take such issue with them if there weren't entire weeks I have to wait just to get another talking session.

I think the difference for me between talking like they're doing here and talking like in the best talking shows (i.e. LOGH) is that in good talking shows there are stakes to what's being talked about and the outcome of discussion can lead many places. Here it's just set up for a stomp battle and epic scene. Now that's all well and good since it makes the scene a bit more satisfying, but eventually you want to actually get to the scene everything else has been setting up for instead of just dragging you along forever.

Despite the talking slowing down the actual show's pace it still feels like the plot as a whole is being rushed. So many events are conspiring to take place at once; Rimuru became a Demon Lord, freed Veldora, Established relations with Thallion and is building a road there, Yomu is heading off to usurp the crown of Falmuth, Clayman has brainwashed Milly and called a meeting of demon lords, and Clayman's army is poised to fight against the Tempest army. In universe all this has transpired over the course of a couple of days and while it mostly all makes sense to have done so, it's just a lot to take in as a view and a lot of new plot points/arcs that now need to be resolved.

It's kinda crazy, most of this anime has been talking so far as well, but they actually change location or go places with the talking. It's not just sitting in a room for the entire episode and I kinda like it.

I think having the entire half of the season left is plenty of time for them to resolve these plot points, hopefully. All I can guess at is if Clayman goes down this season then the rest of it should be exciting to watch.

I was just reminded that I forgot to point out just how inactive these episodes were. Alongside being all talking ~60% of episode 38 takes place in a single gazebo, and then 95% of 39 takes place in that same gazebo followed by the first quarter of 40. I think if they had moved a bit more it wouldn't have felt like such a drag.

is something happening!? is something happening!?

Anyways, I like the talking episodes. For a seasonal anime it may feel a bit slow, but that's really only because we're watching it as episodes come out. When viewed holistically, the pacing is quite good, because it sets up genuine events to come and further builds the worlds without hand-waving details like a typical fantasy show would. As far as the world building goes, it's frankly just a peg below something like LoGH, which is quite impressive.

If anything is worth complaining about, it would be the later half of Part 1; every episode was essentially just the OVA packed into the space where an actual episode should have been. Sure, that was likely done because they had commitments to fulfill and thanks to COVID, but were it not for that fact, all of this exposition would have likely already have been covered and Part 2 could have been devoted more to the action that has been being built up to for the first 6 episodes.

I think as time has gone on, and more events have unfolded, I can better appreciate the buildup that went into them. I agree, it would've been better to watch this all at once, but what's done is done and I only slightly regret it at this point. As of now every storybeat has lead to the encirclement and pending demolishment of Clayman, and each detail has certainly added onto what'll be a great downfall to witness.

Although maybe I should take note to not immediately jump on watching something like this in the future.

Everyone continuing to stand around the bloodied remains of Clayman as he laid there dying, no one mentioning the fact that his body was still lying there was pretty funny.

Quite the satisfying end for all his bravado, also a lot of cute Milim this episode, was half expecting her to pummel Clayman as well
