Cause Shion's death > gets rewarded. If there is one think korean and chinese mangas win on japanese ones is this.

"Punishment of the witch" more like the "Reward of the traitor witch".
Okay I get she had her reasons and whatnot and there is the hope of resurrection but man i cant stand it when people get off scot-free after doing horrible things.
She still is part of the cause of hundreds of people dying. And even if the punishment is light there should have still been one.
I would have preferred if he spared her for now but said "her fate is decided by the resurrection and if it works she lives and if it doesn't then she joins them". That seems the most fair as a leader trying to be merciful but also considering the crime. And I'm guessing it will work so he could have just did that. Anyway, she better make up for it in big ways later.

Hey, so there is someone that's ACTUALLY reading the manga, I was starting to wonder...
I don't know about killing, but I am sure that rewarding people that betrayed you and killed a lot of your actually loyal fellows is not a sound strategy.

The exact same applies to you with your "it's an unfair comparison".

Not really, considering I've repeatedly said what I've said about poor attempts at subverting expectations with cop out justifications. How bout Milim and DragonBro which are basically walking get out of jail free cards for SlimeBro? Or the Charydbis fight which was pretty damn out of no where, with reasons as it's justification to make it interesting and sideline Milim, IIRC? Or pretty much any fight that starts with Rimiru's subordinates getting their asses kicked and he comes in to save them because "oops, he can eat them faster than they can eat him and he's nice and convinced them to let him eat them" or "oops, laser death beams from above that use almost no magic".

While you keep insisting about "lesser quality of dialogue" which I disagree with, since you have no examples offered so far, it feels like it's currently just based on "because you say so" and nothing else.
And parts of your argument have changed now, since you all of a sudden bring up "Deux Ex Machina" which is new. I disagree. Things have been well foreshadowed so far, so I am calling your bluff here. If you have any such Dei Ex Machina, then I challenege you to tell me what they are, but I will only allow that for the LN/manga, since the WN is of lesser quality and the anime skipped various parts.

@Kayriel I know that feeling all too well

I find it funny that there's folks literally talking about what's going to be happening next but I'm the one who got hit with a spoiler warning for making a joke.

I get the feeling like this part was handled a lot better in the WN. I don't recall the witch ever talking to Rimuru about her past.

Wow, a whole page taken by three people internet-arguing.

Oh you want to play that game? How bout I point out how you lied out your ass about something you never read. You claimed Overlord had no "nation building" when it 100% did in both your definition and the correct one. I wonder what fallacy that falls under? Or how bout I point out that your entire argument is an ambiguity fallacy considering your misleading and incorrect usage of the word? If you're going to bitch about fallacies, don't be the source of them. You're the one who made shit difficult by
A) Lying and saying Overlord doesn't do "Nation Building"
B) Claim Overlord is "strip mining the world" instead of nation building.
C) Claiming world building can be a part of nation building and further muddying the waters.
D) Use a personal and incorrect definition of a word.
If you talk about say Computer Science and I start talking about programming, you don't bitch at me for moving goal posts when you really meant to talk about doing chemistry on a computer. That's not me using a fallacy, it's you using a fallacy and being misleading or wrong and blaming me for it.

You just don't get, do you? The nation building "you meant" doesn't exist. Nation building is an actual term and you used it wrong. I can't blame you for misunderstanding me if I say "global warming" in reference to globes being hot or some shit or pretend that's an acceptable definition. So if you're going to blame anyone for "shift goal posts" or misunderstandings, it's 100% your fault for using an existing term in an incorrect fashion. What I meant by nation building is the actual definition of the word and the closest relevant definition through world building. If you're going to bitch about me "shifting" my argument, maybe clarify that you're using a term in a manner that it isn't used in. Not that it matters in this case considering even with your original meaning, you're still fucking wrong because your argument rests on the fact that you said Overlord doesn't do Nation Building.

Still waiting for that definition. Because hey, it proves my point and shows that your usage of the term was wrong and any misunderstands or confusion is your fucking fault.

You bore me.

Your entire argument has been a "motte and bailey" fallacy. Once you realized that what I meant by nation building wasn't what you meant, then you decided to goalpost shift into an 'argumentum ad dictionarium' fallacy. What you meant by nation building was not what I meant, and you went on at length about worldbuilding, which I wasn't even originally talking about. Because you thought I was talking about something I wasn't.

So, since you're being a pedantic little pussy about everything, I will restate my point, such as it was originally, so you can clearly understand me. When I use the phrase, 'nation building' yes, I mean it literally. E. fucking G. I LIKE the 'nation building' (building a nation from scratch) in Slime, which makes it interesting to me. I make no claims one way or another about the 'worldbuilding' (background work, characters/places/etc.) in Overlord, other than that I think the writing is trash and I don't like any of the characters in it.

Now, does that satisfy you, or do you really want to just point at me and completely misunderstand what I'm trying to say, AGAIN, and go 'nahnahnahnah not liiiistening! You're using the phrase wrong! Nanananananaaahhhh! Admit I'm right about this which has absolutely nothing to do with either Overlord or Slime but I'm riiiiiiiigghhttttt!!!!!!

Which is what you've BEEN doing this whole time.
