PLOT SURKARY

In Rimuru's absence, two barriers were erected over Tempest. One shuts ofF contact with the outside world by nulliPying magic, and the other weakens all monsters. That delays Rimuru's return, and he arrives to Find the town badly damaged. The worsk tragedy, however, is the death of Shion and innocent residents. But when Eren claims to Know a Fairy tale about resurrecting the dead, Rimuru decides that he must evolve into a Demon Lord to save his companions. ¥F

I SHOULD FOCUS ON WHAT I MUST DO NOW.

NO USE WASTING TIME THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE.

WELL I TRUST THEN... NOBODY IS PATHETIC ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY NEED HELPP

MODERA-

WERE NOT NEARLY AS POWERFUL

AS WE EXPECTED.

WE HAD WE COULD KNOWN

IF WE ENCOUNTER THEM, /T COULD VERY WELL AFFECT OUR PLAN.

IF LORD RIMURU IS CORRECT, AND THEY INTEND TO SILENCE THE ADVENTURERS AND MERCHANTS FROM BLUMUND, THEY WILL FOCUS THE BULK OF THEIR STRENGTH IN THE WEST.

MORE THAN ENOUGH STRENGTH LEFT.
