i try it using

string merkle = "4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b";

writeln(merkle.retro.text); and it gives me

b33adedfa7b7212ba77cc2e37667f816f78cb13c88a81523a3f98baab4e1e5a4

Here's one solution with std.range.chunks. A small downside is that it needs the array allocation in the middle because chunks cannot offer the bi-directional range necessary for retro.

    import std.range;
    import std.algorithm;

    void main()
    {
        string merkle =
"4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b";
        assert (merkle.retro.equal(
"b33adedfa7b7212ba77cc2e37667f816f78cb13c88a81523a3f98baab4e1e5a4"));
        assert (merkle.chunks(2).array.retro.joiner.equal(
"3ba3edfd7a7b12b27ac72c3e67768f617fc81bc3888a51323a9fb8aa4b1e5e4a"));
    }

FYI: The problem isn't chunks, but that strings aren't bi-directional ranges (hello ugly auto-decoding!).
Simply disable it with byCodeUnit:

---
import std.experimental.all;
void main()
{
"4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b".byCodeUnit.chunks(2).retro.joiner.writeln; "4a5e1e4baab89f3a32518a88c31bc87f618f76673e2cc77ab2127b7afdeda33b".byCodeUnit.slide(2, 2).retro.joiner.writeln;
}
---

Oh and the new slide is a generalization of chunks.
