A trip to the demon realm is in store for Azusa and her family in the sixth episode of I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level. Since it’s for an award ceremony, they’ve got to dress the part… which might prove to be a little difficult for Rosalie.
This episode adapts two and a bit chapters of the second light novel: “I Made a Dress for a Ghost”, “A Leviathan Dropped By” and one other chapter that I won’t spoil the name of here. It does skip the “The Factory Began Running” chapter. Once again, seemingly focusing on introducing new characters.
So first up, we have the adaptation of the “I Made a Dress for a Ghost” chapter. Beelzebub just shows up out of nowhere to announce ceremony in the anime, but in the light novel it comes after a drinking party to celebrate the opening of Halkara’s factory. Of course, they skipped that chapter here, but Beelzebub still had to show up.
Either way, though, it still leads to trying to figure out to get Rosalie a new dress. She’s a ghost, so she can’t exactly just change her clothes like a normal human.
I don’t think the anime makes it quite clear that using a spell to affect a ghost carries quite the risk. Not that it really matters, since Azusa pulls it off with ease. In the light novel, she has Rosalie picture a white dress with a simple design. As you can see, the anime opts for green. Either way, Rosalie looks great in the dress.
With Rosalie’s new dress sorted out, we move on to the “A Leviathan Dropped By” chapter, in which a leviathan drops by the house in the highlands. What else would you expect? The anime actually gives us a slightly shorter version of the trip on the leviathan, though we do get quite a wholesome scene in exchange.
One of two new character introduced in this episode is Vania, one of a pair of leviathan sisters. We’ll meet the other one properly later, but for now we get a naked first impression. Also, in the light novel, Azusa has this to say about Vania upon seeing her naked body: “Still, she was lovely and lean. She looked almost like a doll.”
In the light novel, the trip on the leviathan (named Fatla, by the way) has a lot more food than the anime does. There’s also a scene where Azusa tries to go to sleep, but struggles to do so with everyone else coming and going.
The anime gives us some of that food scene, but also a conversation between Halkara and Rosalie. This particular scene is an excellent addition. I liked it a lot.
The other new character introduced in this episode is one Provat Pecora Allières. The light novel translation calls her Provato Pecora Ariés. Either way, I’ll be referring to her as Pecora from this point forward.
Her introduction comes from the aforementioned chapter with a title I won’t spoil just yet. Pecora’s introduction is only a small part of said chapter, and I don’t want to give away what happens for those who don’t know.
As for what does happen in this episode, Halkara is… well, Halkara.
I want to take a moment to say that I adore the soundtrack for this show. The instruments used are a perfect match for the atmosphere.
Loved this episode. I knew what was gonna happen, but regardless I was laughing all the way through. Absolutely adore this show. Certain chapters from the light novel may be getting skipped, but I still think this is an excellent adaptation.
