I’ve been killing slimes’ Azusa Aizawa imagines herself as the “highland witch”, although fame and fortune are not her goals.

Now, however, Azusa is ready to accept her true isekai calling and begin helping people in need.
But what if someone else also claims the Azusa title? In Episode 8, she hears rumors about the benevolent Highland Witch in Flatta Guildhall, and is determined to find out who exactly she is. Surely I’ve been killing slimes‘isekai world has no room for two famous witches.

The impostor witch Azusa keeps hearing
Azusa is eager to see who this other witch is and to find out why she seeks to replace her in such a way. She divides her home into groups, and she and her dragon friend Laika visit a city with an eccentric tavern. There, the waitress urges Azusa and Laika to verbally abuse customers, a crowd of tough guys who secretly enjoy being licked at by charming women. Laika is confused and complains for real until she and Azusa get the directions they were looking for. They head north and find another city where a crowd gathers around an old little witch. Is it the false highland witch?
This witch is modest and says that her potions are still not good enough to sell to customers. She flees when Azusa confronts her, but the empowered protagonist uses a simple and harmless spell to trip the impostor witch out of town. With a puff of colored smoke, the old witch disappears and a new one emerges, a girl with red hair and a quick apology on her lips.
Eno the highland witch declares her dream
The impostor witch leads Azusa and Laika back to their hiding place. It is decorated exactly like the typical witch hut, from jars of terrifying creatures to a bubbling cauldron and arcane tomes on the shelves. This young woman is Eno, and she didn’t mean to do any harm by posing as the Highland Witch. Rather, she’s a budding entrepreneur like Halkara, but she’s not sure where to get started. In fact, she contradicts herself, stating that she wants to be famous among the general public, but also known only among elite circles. Laika and Azusa help Eno come up with his business plan, and Eno decides to be popular with the common people. Their main product: mandrake lozenges that can relieve eyestrain and stress, and even promote gut health. It is time to act.
Azusa helps Eno set up a stall at the local market, and once she and her friends arrive, they are surprised to find Eno dressed for the occasion, as a charming magical girl, with a short rod with a heart on the end. . More importantly, Eno delivered the merchandise, and once Rosalie makes a fuss for complaining about the tavern customers (who showed up at the market), huge crowds gathered.
Eno is selling one pill bottle after another, and at this rate it will have to queue to produce enough product to meet demand. Once again, Azusa is simply happy to help other people realize their dreams and find joy, and she and Eno may be highland witches that everyone loves. Turns out there it is enough space for both in I’ve been killing slimes‘merry world isekai.
