Despite Rimuru's absence, Tempest was as peaceful as always. Well, as peaceful as a monster town called "Tempest" could get, anyway. But that was only until they learned that a bunch of heavily armed humans were coming their way. To make matters worse, the Beast Kingdom of Eurazania has declared war on Milim, and Rimuru is nowhere to be found...!

This is getting ridiculous, I can understand that heroes needs to be overpowered. But overpowering heroes in every chapter is too much.

This light novel has yet to let me down or disappoint me in any way up to and including this volume. This volume starts off a little weak with some longer POV chapters from new characters no one really cares about but they are necessary world building so you know why whats happening in the world is happening. The entire volume is major conflict stacked with major conflict coming to a head and exploding, there aren't any actual real fight scenes despite there being a lot of action going on. The m ...more

Rimuru is off on his tour of the surrounding nations, so Benimaru and the other residents of Tempest are doing their best to run everything like normal. Only there are various plots afoot, and without Rimuru, Tempest is poorly equipped to manage them . . .

It's really hard to summarize this without spoiling some of the best twists. This book covers some of my favorite material in the overall story.

The prologue alone sets out the more ambitious scope of this book: the Beast Kingdom allied with Tem

This volume marks a major turning point of the series as Rimuru finally gets confronted by the darker side of human nature. It's definitely a massive change of tone from the earlier volumes, where things were never seemingly too bad even in the face of some grim situation.

It's hard to talk about this volume without being able to spoil some of the best parts of it, but suffice to say the author was definitely going for the "road to hell is paved with good intentions" theme for this book as some

Rounded down from 2.5 stars.

So wow, having Rimuru just sort of fuck off for the first half of this volume was a choice. It's a dick move when you ended the last volume on a cliffhanger though. The volume really suffers waiting for Rimuru to show up. Maybe it would've been better to be back with only the secondary characters if the author hadn't just spent ( most of ) the last volume ignoring them but I'm not sure. The secondary characters aren't all that interesting on their own. Honestly I don'

Where did the time go?

I genuinely couldn't stop reading once I started. I flipped through the first few pages to get going and then a few hours later I had completed the book.... WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TIME? It's a VERY good read and I really hope this is what season 2 of the anime is like. I highly recommend this series to my friends and family a the time. I really think Fuze-sensei knocked it out of the park with this one tho.

Finally A “True” Demon Lord

I truly enjoyed this book. My lack of sleep can attest to that. Some many changes happen in the book to Rimuru and he gang but finally everyone is together. Read it!!!

If you have to EXPLAIN to others that you have perspective and insight, THEN YOU DON'T HAVE PERSPECTIVE AND INSIGHT. And knowing the difference between a man and a demon with the appearance of a man is not so great THAT IT DESERVES A PAGE AND A HALF OF BOASTING. FUCKING 12 year olds.

It was an enjoyable read but I don't know if it's the way Fuze writes or how it's done in Japan but nothing about the scenery is described or the people. There's never an easy indication about who is speaking.

Plot drags on too much with unnecessary stuff.

Tras un parón por haber estado arrancado con la de Reverte he devorado este light novel de una serie que empezaba a flojear. Me ha vuelto a recordar porqué adoro este tipo de novelas. Unas batallas muy entretenidas la verdad, se ha ganado otra novela de cuartelillo.

Didn't disappoint

I would recommend this series to anyone and book 5 didn't disappoint. The story made sense and had scenes that gave me the feels. I can't wait for the next one.
