In episode 8, it’s harvest season in Tempest, and everyone gets involved in reaping the results of their hard work. Ririna is put in charge of the harvest, and the efficiency she implements ensures that they will be done by the end of the day. She even scares Gobuta and his gang of slackers into working. Meanwhile, Milim and Shion have a competition to see who can pull out more sweet potatoes. Although it’s a steep contest, Milim ultimately pulls out a giant sweet potato that suspiciously looks like Rimuru and wins.

Rimuru then roasts some of the sweet potatoes and distributes them among all of the residents. Treyni takes a crate full of potatoes to her restaurant to fry them later. She bids farewell to Rimuru, who is surprised by the suddenness of it. However, when he visits her restaurant, he is exasperated to discover that she is there.
