Found her! Megumi_Toyoguchi. Wow. She's one of those seiyuu you ask what hasn't she been in.

One of the few series with intelligent decent goblins ...can’t wait till Rimiru’s penchant for giving out names comes out - the results are hilarious. Rimiru also tends to leave out important details, heh heh heh; poor guild master!

Please animate Death Mage next!!


In RA Salvatore's Forgotten Realms series, specifically The Orc King. There were Orcs who were portrayed as wanting to live in harmony with the other races.

So to mimic human form, he'll need to eat a human


Based on what we saw in the montage the Predator ability doesn't require the "subject" be alive so there is that option. (Not sure how the LNs handle it but obviously at some point he "eats" a human body. Or gains a new skill of mimicry without analysis which would be kind of a cop-out imo.)

Forming a horde to overrun human and dwarven settlements, only to be forced into an uneasy armistice is a funny way of striving for harmony. Salvatore had a period of humanizing humanoid races, particularly one ill-fated goblin. However that's been hugely undermined in how D&D characterizes orcs in the Realms, as being eternally influenced by Gruumsh towards war and plunder. Goblins and kobolds aren't any better in the Forgotten Realms.

Are you talking about The Orc King? That had two groups of Orcs....the ones led by Grguch who wanted to make war on the other races, and the ones led by Obould who opposed Grguch and made peace with the dwarves. If he really wanted to keep making war on the dwarves, he could easily have united with Grguch.

I had to refresh my memory a bit with the wiki, but it wasn't Grguch that formed an alliance with frost giants to attack Shallows or Mithril Hall.
http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Obould

Obould did eventually make peace, but it started to fall apart after his death. The orcs of Many-Arrows were never described as particularly friendly with their neighbors, with minor conflicts constantly breaking out up until the dwarves took the citadel back. Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes is even less optimistic about the disposition of orcs, with Gruumsh constantly pushing them towards conflict and war.

Yeah, Obould started out as an aggressor, but eventually softened and changed his ways. I thought it was a rather different spin on typical fantasy though, where the Orcs were not just hell bent on killing all of the "good" races. Even more jarring I thought that Drizzt and a few other Dark Elves wanting to be on the side of good, or Artemis Entreri turning over a new leaf.

I'll admit, Obould was a dramatic departure from how orcs are usually portrayed in D&D. Salvatore does like his long, rambling redemption arcs. Though Entreri still managed to cuckold Drizzt. And I would hesitate to ever all Jarlaxle or any of his band "good".

There is a lot of stuff getting cut and the time scale is a bit wonky in this adaption, but so far its captured the spirit of the source material pretty well. This should be a fun series.

She is a senpai seiyuu , they don't get a lot of work with all the more famous younger and newer generation.

Rimuru has a newer seiyuu on the other end .Miho Okasaki I think she is doing a pretty good job

This show is so much fun, I felt like Rimuru as he traveled through the cave. Didn't think someone could make such a refreshing and different isekai but I'm glad they did. This is great
