That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Episode 2 Spoilers
In the season 2 premiere episode, Rimuru reflects how far he has come since the fateful day when he was stabbed in Japan. He informs his Class S students that he will not be able to take their classes any longer and hands over the class to Tiss. Rimuru has mastered his spatial jump abilities, which helps him and Ranga travel between his commitments faster.
Tempest now has a treaty with Eurazania and its king Carrion. It stipulates that neither nation will attack the other, and the nations will host each other’s ambassadors. Rimuru has picked Benimaru to represent him and Tempest in Carrion’s kingdom. He has also appointed Rigur to serve as Benimaru’s assistant. Before their departure, Rimuru tells them to return immediately if there is trouble. Youm and his party continue to travel across the world, saving people and spreading the good name of Tempest. They come back to Tempest right before the arrival of Eurazania’s emissaries.
When one of the emissaries, the lycanthrope Suphia, makes a snide remark about Rimuru being a slime, a scuffle breaks out between Suphia and Shion. Albis, the other emissary, orders the majin Grucious to fight Youm. The episode ends as Rimuru drily notes that he seems to have caused a fight with the kingdom which is supposed to be their allies. In episode 2, we might find out how the two duels end. The title of the next episode suggests that there might be a trade treaty between Tempest and Eurazania.
