A lot happened this week. I am officially an engineer now and I am done with studying for the foreseeable future. Don’t worry, I’ll stick to this work even after getting a job, I love doing this after all. When it comes to anime though, this week was kind of chill compared to the absolute storms the last two weeks had been. That does not mean that this week was weak though, no no no, far from it. We still had some absolute bangers like Kaiju No. 8 Episode 7 and Wind Breaker Episode 8.

Whisper Me a Love Song continues to be a diabetic experience with episode 7 while also getting some interesting plot developments. We had more awesome plot developments in Ranger Reject and Mushoku Tensei. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime finally delivered the action we had all been waiting for. There is a lot more to come in this arc and I hope that the anime handles it better than it initially did lol.

So welcome back to another Best Episodes of the Week list. The spring 2024 season continues to be consistently good so let’s talk about everything from Kaiju No. 8 Episode 7 to Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Episode 19! Here are my favorite episodes of the week!

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 8

Finally, an episode in this season that is not filled with meetings or exposition lol. I mean to be fair, exposition did have some important world-building stuff. And then that world-building was showcased in last week’s episode. But it went on for a little too long. That is why people were starting to get a little bored of Season 3. But well, it made up for all that with this episode. Episode 8 was a banger and we finally got to see Hinata vs. Rimuru 2.0, we all knew Rimuru was winning this one but it was cool seeing him genuinely struggle against an opponent.

This episode and the last episode also once again put into perspective how much Rimuru has achieved in terms of trade and relations with other nations and just how strong he and his generals have become since his ascension.

Ranger Reject Episode 7

I just watched this episode. While I think last week’s episode was more fun because of all the intense action, this week’s episode was more story-focused. A lot of new revelations were made in this episode. I forgot the name of that angel-like monster but it seems he will be relevant for a while. I didn’t expect to see him so soon after hearing Sakurama’s backstory but here we are. This show has a lot of interesting plot twists and while I do wish the pace was a little slower, I am still enjoying the story overall.

It will be interesting to see what that monster is planning on doing. He also got XX out of her confinement. And XX is very scared of him. We have seen what kind of destruction that guy is capable of. So yeah. Awesome episode overall.

Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Episode 19

Well, we are off to Begaritt continent to save Zenith. Turning Point 3 is in full effect and this episode sees the start of that journey. This episode also marks the first time Rudeus has ignored Hitogami’s advice. I love how we spent a good part of the episode preparing and saying goodbye to everyone. That is such a Mushoku Tensei thing to do lol. This episode also does a good job of reminding us just how long traveling takes in this world, since it will mostly be on foot.

Nanahoshi came in clutch though and helped Rudeus out by giving him locations to some teleportation circles. This greatly reduces the time it’d take to reach and rescue Zenith. We all know that this journey is not going to end well but I still really hope that Rudeus makes it back before his kid is born.

Whisper Me a Love Song Episode 7

Why is this anime so damn sweet? This episode would’ve been on the list if it was just the wholesome romantic stuff. Which we got plenty of in this episode by the way. Seeing Yori and Himari say some embarrassing stuff and then just sit there blushing and staring at each other will never get old lol. But then this episode gave us a bit of plot development as well. We have already seen Shiho quite a few times now and now we know why she left SSGirls. I wonder what she wants to accomplish here by insulting Yori.

Well, I guess to be more specific, it is Mizuguchi she is after but still. The next few episodes are going to be very interesting. Especially since Shiho doesn’t know about Himari and Yori’s relationship just yet, This is quite an interesting twist on our hands and it is working. Let’s see how things settle at the end.

Wind Breaker Episode 8

This episode was an absolute banger. We all knew that Togame vs. Sakura was going to be fun but I don’t think anyone expected it to be this good. The recent episodes of Wind Breaker have felt really short and that is a good thing. When you don’t realize 20 minutes have passed while watching an episode, it shows just how invested you were in the episode. I love how both of them had a stupid smile on their face towards the end of their fight. Both of them were beat up and yet they had a huge smile on their face.

I feel like Choji is too far gone. Seeing Togame’s conviction in the previous fight didn’t move him at all even though everyone around him was almost drawn to tears by the time their fight ended. And we finally saw Umemiya in action too and holy shit, he is about to educate Choji in the next episode lol.

Kaiju No. 8 Episode 7

This has meme potential

I would have put this episode on the list just for the awesome action we got in this episode. Reno and Iharu did their best against Kaiju No. 9 without any help. The Kaiju blocked their comms and they were in a desperate fight to live. The only reason they were alive for as long as they were was because the Kaiju wanted to capture them alive. And that bought enough time for Kafka to pick up on their absence, transform into his Kaiju form, and come to save them. Kafka beat the hell out of the other Kaiju and it was satisfying to watch.

Once again, the animations in Kaiju No. 8 continue to impress me and episode 7 was another glorious showcase for them. And after all that awesomeness, we had the ending. And oh boy what a cliffhanger this episode left us off on. I cannot wait for next week’s episode.

That is all for now!

Well, those were my favorite episodes from this week. Let me know yours in the comments. I will take my leave here. Gonna play some Skyrim now. See ya!
