Of course the Lizard Women become moe. I am not sure what I expected.
Ranga literally cracked me up. He had the best "wtf is happening here?!" face after the "Anti-Loli-Warfare".
A lot of convenient stuff happened really fast but that hardly is a problem when even Rimuru is like "what the shit?!".
But now it is finally in the open that there are multiple people who could trash Rimuru without even trying.
Actually, he didn't use Predator in this episode. He used Gluttony,... If you are wondering where that one came from, its a combination of 'Starving Ones' that he got from the Orc Lord and ... Predator...
