Tensura Nikki Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, Demon Lord Milim Nava arrives in Tempest and defeats all its fighters, forcing Rimuru to raise a white flag. They subsequently become friends. As a result, the kingdom’s ruling council designates the task of dealing with Milim entirely to Rimuru. Predictably, Milim leaves destruction in her wake and beats up both Gobuta and Gabiru. However, as Rimuru tells Rigurd, it’s not as bad as it could have been. Milim genuinely seems to enjoy her time in Tempest. She also loves Shuna’s cooking. She eats, sleeps, bothers Rimuru or one of the other residents, and then eats again.

Milim becomes uncharacteristically serious after learning from Geld the value of creating something and starts helping him with his project. Later that evening, as Rimuru carries her on his back, Milim asks if he is afraid of losing Tempest and its people. The following morning, it seems that she has left. However, Milim soon appears, making Rimuru realize that the storm isn’t over yet. Episode 8 might revolve around crop harvesting during Autumn. Milim and Shion might compete against each other to see who can dig out more potatoes.
