That Time I got Reincarnated as a slime

Recommended Posts

So, I didn't see a thread on here about the "That time I got reincarnated as a slime" anime and I was wondering, what do you all think about it? I'm liking it so far  ≧◡≦

Hmm well, I would look into it for extra speculation, however ill give the best summary I got XD /   So then, the anime itself revolves around the main protagonist and first takes place in modern Japan. After certain circumstances (Trying not to give away the plot to much), the main protagonist finds himself sent to a fantasy world as a slime. He then meets a Tsundere "beast" in the cave he "spawned" in and then tries to find away to free said beast while going on a huge adventure in the process. /       That probably wasn't a very good explanation but I've always been bad at summary's XD Anyways, i'd give it a shot, it's really good.

Modern day Japanese salaryman "dies" and wakes up in an RPG themed world in the body of the weakest of all characters (a slime). However, this slime has some rather unique abilities that quickly make him a force to be reckoned with in this fantasy world. Things start rather slow, largely focusing on the MC becoming acquainted to this new setting and trying to find a purpose in it and the humor is rather subdued. This was also the problem of the series initially, because it struggled to distinguish itself from other similar OP MC Isekai series (not as dark or intricate as Overlord, not as wacky as Konosuba, not as ecchi as How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord). But recent developments have made the story more  interesting as well as emotionally engaging. Currently I would rank it as my #3 of the dozen series I'm watching from this season. I recommend checking it out, but give it some time to grow on you.

It has started out great. For now it's light and fun. The main character is somewhat an anti-normal hero but it still has the atmosphere of other shounen anime that promote the ideals of friendship. But the comedy is great and the writers seem to avoid the boredom that come with such anime somehow. It's refreshing.

Dude this anime is righteous. I really didn't think I was going to like it based on the premise but was strong armed into it after a friend start watching it and was rather surprised.

So far I love the series! The characters are loveable and ironically enough, #relatable. The main protagonist is the most compassionate and easy going character to exist (in my opinion). Not to mention the tempo of the story development is comfortable. Then again, once you get to like ep. 5. . . . things start to pick up.

Up to Episode 7 now and really bummed...not going to spoil it but I'm sure you know why. Anyway, hooked like its crack so eventually it may end up in my top 10, or even top 5 if it continues this way. REALLY want to talk about it deeper, but would spoil it and don't want to do that for those that haven't watched it...which if this is you WATCH IT! 😆 You seriously won't be disappointed.

Those of you that are watching it, what do you think about what happened with this episode?

Amazing, one of the better OP MC animes and one of the better transported to another world animes.

Last week's episode (11) didn't do a whole lot for me (despite Shion's hawhtness). But I really enjoyed this week's (episode 12) and am looking forward to the big battle. I totally hate Gabiru, though. Try to excuse it as pride all you want, he's still a jerk & an idiot. If he survives I hope he learns his lesson

Just finished watching episode 14 and ... Holy ****, eek.gif
If this episode had aired a week earlier THIS would be my nomination for best series of the Fall 2018 season and it would definitely warrant better than an honorable mention for the year. As it stands, the bar Has definitely been raised.

And even though we'll have to wait a week to see Gabiru's redemption, I believe learning that Master Gelmud considered him nothing but orc chow ought to sufficiently humble him.

Thought I would give this thread a bump since it seems like the series is shifting gears away from the OP character defeats supposedly major enemy with ease and gains new allies formula.  I thought it really worked well with the Orc Lord, but was getting kinda stale with Millim & Charybdis.

Looks like Rimuru is finally trying to resolve some of Shizue’s unfinished business & we finally know how the kids in the ED fit into things.

Agreed, however, I am a fan of the OP MC cliche so there is a solid 15% of me who was salty that Rimuru didn't reck Charybdis- also I'm wondering because they didn't show much detail in this part. Rimuru absorbed Charybdis's "heart" so does that mean that Rimuru got another bump of power or what?? Any thoughts?

I'm a little sad there's only 5 more ep. left makes me wonder how its gonna end either big battle or cliff hanger for season 2! My actual guess would be Kimura saves the children and satisfies Shizu's regrets.

      For PS4/XB1/PC! I am so hyped for this game, don't know how Saitama is going to be balanced, just hoping all the technical stuff is done well and holding out for 4-6 player couch co-op seeing as 3v3 battles seems to be the main mode. Anyway guys, check out the trailer below and tell me what ya think! Tbh, I have been dying for an OPM game since I started watching the show, always thought an RPG would better suit a video game but I am incredibly excited because fighting games are my favorite genre.

      So, I have a challenge for myself and I don't know if anyone wants to help me out, but I think it would be pretty fun.
       
      I want new story Ideas but I also wanna see the free expression of characters, so I figured, why not let someone else choose what the characters do.
      And I don't mean choose your own adventure, a, b, c, or d. I mean, completely chose. I may write "a silouette crosses Mario" and if whomever handles mario decides to ignore it, there goes that, challenges to think of ways of driving the plot forward. 
      Now I'll write the lore and be the overseeing narrator (although cool to add ideas together) secondary characters, and some stuff related to the plot idea (some 2ndary characters, and maybe a bad guy I wanna have in the lore), but based on the character choice the entire plot could change. Protagonist, lead 2ndary characters, and maybe even villians, I want for someone else to make the choices.
      It'll be an ensemble cast to get multiple ideas, but once we get a good plot going, then somebody would take the role of a selected new character, etc. 
      The setting is modern day, and general plot would be the world of magic! like illusionist and magicians, (think the sorcerers apprentice movie with nic cage, or the now you see me movies)and the first set of characters would be a regular human, and their lives will change. 
      For now tho, If you wanna play along, leave:
      Name.
      Age.
      Occupation (student, worker).
      Nationality (maybe we make it an across the globe thing?)
      Any specific quirk or  detail you want your character to have? (very shy, hates bugs)
       
      To get started I'll leave you with an opening from the character I'll play, a deity type character to introduce us to this world. (I like to write in a screenplay style cause it helps differentiate the dialog)
       
       
       
      Lets see where this goes!

      hi all i am trying to look for a new anime that is similar to fairy tail as it is coming to an end as it is the final season so i'm just wondering if there is any good anime that is like fairy tail, where they are groups of wizards who go on missions with each other?
