The Time for Talk Is Over, With the Latest Episode Ending in a Cliffhanger

Among crucial developments, like the action continuing in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime season 3 episode #8, Hinata has her duel with Rimuru, and Shion blazes forth on the battlefield. Her fearsome aura is enough to intimidate the Holy Empire’s fighters without even considering Rimuru’s, giving an urgent call to her opponents to lay down their arms, but they don’t listen. Shion’s fight goes as predicted, with her oni power easily shrugging off her opponents. Ultimately, Hinata and Rimuru are given space to settle the battle, one-on-one, with their allies withdrawing to a safe distance.

Hinata’s fight against Rimuru is exhilarating, with Hinata seeing Rimuru’s improvement while her skill is still in a league of its own. As noted in the original book, it’s clear that previous encounters showed Hinata holding back, and the difference between the two places Hinata at an advantage in experience and skill. While outclassed, it ultimately comes down to one critical blow to decide the fight between Hinata and Rimuru. Hinata scores the blow but fails to land a killing one. However, as their duel ends, one final shot is made at Rimuru, and Hinata takes the hit instead.
