That time I got Reincarnated As A Slime, was originally a light novel published by Yen Press and written by Fuse with 14 volumes. The series was later adapted into a manga published by Kodansha with 11 volumes, with a spin off series published by Micro Magazine with 5 volumes. An anime adaption as later made by 8-bit with 24 episodes and 2 OVAs.
Satoru Mikami, is a 37 year old office worker from Tokyo with no Girl Friend. One day he was out meeting with his friend/work colleague and his girlfriend. As they were heading to their destination on a busy side walk, a fleeing robber came charging at Tamura and Mihio with knife in hand. Satoru heroically pushed Tamura out of harms way, resulting in a fatal injury that killed him.
As he lost consciousness, he began to drift off and awoke to the realization that he is no longer human but something else entirely….a slime. One that has an incredible ability known as “predator” it can absorb other creatures and their abilities and they can then be used by him. The story follows the now Rimuru Tempest setting out on a journey where he meets many different races, even a dragon as he explores his new world and finds out more about his new body.
When I first heard about That Tim I got Reincarnated As A slime, I thought it was the most stupidest idea for a series I had ever seen. Until, one day I was bored out of my mind and decided to give it a shot knowing full well that I would lose interest after the first episode or two. It started off as background noise while I did other things, but I quickly found myself stopping and watching the show.
After one episode I was hooked, the show was way better than I had ever expected it to be. The show is much more than just a slime going through life, but one who adapts to it’s new life and becomes something more entirely. I was eager for new episodes to release each week, the series has tons of different characters that are amazing in their own right. Everyone except Gabiru.
The series will surprise you, it’s filled with action, adventure, fantasy, and tons of comedic moments. I recommend that you all give the series a chance as I did, you’ll be glad you did! Good news is, we get another season in 2020! Yay!
