I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level Episode 3: Beelzebub Was Here

The third episode of I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level introduces us to two new characters. Azusa’s quiet life sure is getting much more lively as each episode goes by.

Falfa & Shalsha are so adorable

In this episode, an elf suddenly shows up at the house in the highlands. Her name is Halkara, and she wants Azusa to help her out as a demon is after her. Of course, it’s not all that long until the demon herself also shows up.

Halkara

The chapters that this episode adapts are “An Elf Dropped By” and “Beelzebub Was Here”.
“An Elf Dropped By” actually starts with Falfa and Shalsha playing with grasshoppers in the light novel, as well as a brief discussion about how their hair is actually tentacles.
Falfa reading the book to Shalsha is lifted directly from the light novel.

Halkara falls under the aphrodisiac effect of a mushroom

Halkara is exactly as I’d expected her to be. My image of her from the light novels matches perfectly with what the anime is presenting to us. Funny enough, the anime has got every character perfect so far, and I suspect it will continue doing so.
Here’s another difference between anime and light novel: Azusa uses a detox spell in the anime. In the light novel, Azusa decides touching Halkara is too risky, so she waits it out. Until Halkara trips and she grabs her anyway…

Beelzebub appears

The second half of this episode is the adaptation of the “Beelzebub Was Here” chapter, in which we are introduced to Beelzebub. I know certain people out there were hyped for her appearance: I hope she lives up to their expectations.
She certainly meets mine. This anime has definitely captured the feel of the light novels perfectly, and Beelzebub’s introduction continues that trend.

Beelzebub prepares to fight Azusa

The scene pictured above gets me every time: light novel, manga and anime. It’s just perfect. Poor Beelzebub, though…

It’s plainly obvious why Beelzebub wants to adopt Shalsha & Falfa

Azusa’s life becomes even more lively as of this episode. The questions that Falfa and Shalsha ask in the anime are actually asked by Azusa in the light novel. Falfa and Shalsha are the curious types, so I can see why they changed that around.

Azusa’s family has grown bigger

I love this show. The light novels are brilliant, and they translate so well into anime. It’s pretty clear that the studio are well aware of what makes the light novels work.
Sure, it may not be the best looking anime out there, but it doesn’t really need to be. It does exactly what it needs to do.

I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level continues to be an incredibly solid adaptation. Very much looking forward to more. Of course, I do know what to expect, so I am excited to see those scenes in action.
Also, judging by the characters appearing in the opening credits, the anime will be adapting up to volume 5. Maybe even a little beyond that, but I can only speculate based on what I see.

So yeah, another fantastic episode of what is very quickly becoming my favourite light novel adaptation.

  1. I really adored this episode as well. Especially when the slime twins were reading and Asuza was at first thinking it was cute until she realized the subject matter.

    It was rather funny when Hal was dissing the fly until she realized who it was. I am not a manga reader but I’m very happy that this was adapted.

    Beelzebub lived up to my expectations and Halkara is a yummy gay. This was my favorite episode so far.
