Rimuru’s healing potions have not gone unnoticed. This king can sense the power that dwells within Rimuru. He is a monster that must be watched. Still, for Vesta’s failures, he will never be allowed to stand before the king again. His dreams of faithful service has come to a shocking end.
He’s got his artisans, so what next? A piece of Rimuru’s future was revealed during his stay at the host club. A female who appears to be of Japanese origins was shown to him. He’s not quite sure what this all means, although he’s interested in meeting her. Finding another person here that’s similar to him could make for an interesting story.
