Hi everyone. I'm not using cult concepts to rate it.

Story [08] - The story has one idea, tell a story about a prideful dark mage who doesn't want anyone to know that she likes cute things and happens that she hired a slime. It's not that special but accomplishes its objective.

Art [08] - Personally I'd like to see more well-built scenarios and the characters, but the way that it is, it's enough. When the objective is to be cute or funny, it is. The background usually is blank, but when is about her store/shop you feel interested and love in it.

Character [08] - They're good and they act as they should. Sometimes they're not honest to themselves, but the others understand what they mean. In the end, all the characters grow around the slime and his growth as a person.

Enjoyment [10] - They deliver us exactly what they promised and it's super satisfactory. The cuteness is its charm.

Overall [09] - It's not a story to think a lot about like series as Dark (Netflix) and Gate (hard to understand), nor as Dragon Ball that has a lot of fights and some plot. It's just a comic to feel cuteness and have fun.
I'd like to give it 10, but I feel like something is missing to me, but it's awesome.

This is a low tension fantasy comedy. The main characters are a dark mage shopkeep and her toddler-age slime apprentice. It has a bit of a slow start, as most gags revolve around the mage hiding her affection and contriving excuses to huge and squeeze the slime.

But as the story progresses it finds its rhythm and becomes more engaging. I think the cast of side characters are the main charm - they're very funny and likeable. It begins dipping its toes into surprisingly dangerous and emotional drama and adventure arcs as well, without sacrificing the story's safe-feeling vibe. Well, the cover art tells you what to expect pretty well.

Thirty-seven-year-old Satoru Mikami is a typical corporate worker, who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, other than failing to nail down a girlfriend even once throughout his life. In the midst of a casual encounter with his colleague, he falls victim to a random assailant on the streets and is stabbed. However, while succumbing to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind, and recites a bunch of commands which the dying man cannot make sense of.

When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has reincarnated as a goop of slime in an unfamiliar realm. In doing so, he acquires newfound skills—notably, the power to devour anything and mimic its appearance and abilities. He then stumbles upon the sealed Catastrophe-level monster "Storm Dragon" Veldora who had been sealed away for the past 300 years for devastating a town to ashes. Sympathetic to his predicament, Satoru befriends him, promising to assist in destroying the seal. In return, Veldora bestows upon him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection.

Now, liberated from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a fresh journey with a distinct goal in mind. As he grows accustomed to his new physique, his gooey antics ripple throughout the world, gradually altering his fate.

Insert obligatory pretentious quote here because I’m not good at starting a review. The Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime or TenSuru is an anime that slipped into the radar of ever hungry anime watchers in October 2018. Since then, the anime has been praised as being a wholesome isekai deviating from the norm and positing a new and refreshed take on the genre. So, imagine my confoundment when only the first 5-6 episodes held true to the preceding sentence. After the first 6 episodes it turns into your typical harem loli bait. Allow me to elaborate.

The anime starts off pretty good actually with our protagonist (who is a not-so-social-virgin at 37) dying, with his dying wish being “If I ever get reborn, I want to be OP af and want to screw as many girls as I like”; to be fair, I would probably also wish something along those lines. After citing his wish, “the great sage” reincarnates him into another world as the most OP slime ever. Stuff happens and he ends up saving a tsundere dragon from eternal imprisonment by eating him and also saves a village of goblins from direwolves. He, then names all the goblins and direwolves and takes it upon himself to create an ideal living environment for the monsters to live in. Just because he worked as a “contractor” in his previous life, he’s able to plan out a whole city mostly by himself. He also becomes an expert in holding a conversation even though he was lonely and awkward in his previous life. I don’t know how that works, but good for him right?

After planning a whole city mostly by himself, begins the directionless adventure of the slime. This is one of the main problems with this show, it does not know what it wants to be. There’s no overarching narrative, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but audiences at least need a sense of direction of movement in order not to be bored. There was something about there being a demon lord or something, idk it’s probably the same guy that’s present in every other isekai. What the show does is, it makes one of the characters say “Demon Lord” in some way or the other and the anime is like “well that’s enough plot progression for one episode. Who wants tiddies?”. Instead of actual plot we get “plot”. Not “plot” plot, but PLOT. Every girl the slime ever comes across is infatuated with him because we need to construct a harem or it will not be an isekai. Thus, the slime turns into chad slime and is swimming in tiddies, literally. The second problem with the show is that the danger does not feel real. Since the slime, who gets the name Rimuru by the way, is as OP as Goku in his Rainbow Super Saiyan Ultra Instinct Super Saiyan Legendary Super Saiyan God Ultra BS Level 5 form, nobody stands a chance against him. Anyone who challenges him, gets their ass handed to them in about 5 milliseconds. The fights usually go like this:

1. Rimuru’s henchmen fighting evil guy.
2. Evil Guy: You are just cannon fodder.
3. Henchmen lose; evil guy laughs; Rimuru arrives.
4. Evil Guy: You’re just a slime, you can’t do anything.
5. Rimuru beats the shit out of evil guy.
6. Evil Guy: *gasp* *starts following Rimuru for no reason*

Seriously, everyone who ever comes in contact with Rimuru becomes as loyal to him as you’re to anime. There’s this direwolf whose father is killed by Rimuru, but he’s like “meh, shit happens. You killed my father and dozens of my friends with whom I’ve spent my life till now, but you gave me a name so I instantly forgot about them”.

The comedy is ehhh??? I know comedy is subjective, but I can distinguish between well written comedy that isn’t funny just to me and just plain bad comedy. There’s this character who doesn’t speak and just says “mmmhh” and whenever he does that Rimuru goes “Speak up, man”. It was funny the first time but became annoying after it was repeated for a million times. There’s this lizardman who’s arguably the most irksome character in the show because his only purpose in life seems to be to make stupid decisions for the sake of tasteless humour. But, the most annoying part is that those actions, those asinine actions that he takes in the show which we took for granted, actually contribute to plot progression. He overthrows his father, the king of the lizardmen, from the throne during an invasion just because 3 of his henchmen told him that he is strong *annoyed nose exhale*.

The characters are painfully mediocre. Except for one female character, all others are there just to show some cleavage and get wet over Rimuru for no goddamn reason. Rimuru himself isn’t that interesting of a character. We never get an explanation to his motivation or what he wants to do, he just does whatever is presented to him. That’s weak writing. If your character holds his/her characterisation only in the context of the story then that’s weak character writing. There’s not even much to write as the characters are the definition of average. If they were on either end of the spectrum you would have something to say about them, but the characters in this show don’t have much of a personality. Only one character gets anything resembling a backstory which was so cursory that I forgot about it as soon as it happened. The characters are introduced as some kind of badasses only to further paint them as only superficially badass. There’s a character who tames the orcs and has a calm demeanour in his first scene but loses his mind when his plan fails. He’s portrayed as smart and shrewd but isn’t even able to figure out that his own slave is going to kill him.

The female cast consists of useless fanservice character #1, useless fanservice character #2, useless fanservice character #3 up to useless fanservice character #10, and Shizue. You can literally replace the female cast with boobs and it wouldn’t make a dent of a difference. Every female in this show, in one way or another, is only present to hold Rimuru between her boobs or to get angry for absolutely no reason in order to provide “comic relief”. I’ve put comic relief if massive quotations because all it does is annoy the viewer or pad for time as every episode needs to be 20 minutes long. The “comic relief” usually (and by usually I mean all the time) consists of girls vying to get wet over Rimuru or having other characters eat food that they’ve prepared; usually (and by usually I mean all the time) the food is very unpalatable and causes the person eating said food to faint. As you can see these are entirely new concepts that have never been executed or seen before in any anime, ever.

There’s a demon loli who runs around in bikinis blowing up whatever she wishes and is supposed to be a “demon lord” who are apparently the most OP people in the world. The demon loli is defeated by Rimuru by stuffing her mouth with honey; a feat which is applauded by his loyal followers quoting it as “A feat which only Rimuru-sama can accomplish” *exasperated sigh*. The demon loli (that’s what I’m gonna call her because she was only present in the show to appeal to pedos and was such a superfluous character that I don’t even remember her name and can’t be bothered to search for it), becomes besties with Rimuru because, well, we need an excuse to shoehorn in a loli with enough helium in her voice to lead to dizziness, nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness and ultimately death.

You might be thinking that despite shitting on this show why have I still given it a 4/10. Well, that’s because even though everything about this anime is utterly mediocre, I still had an urge to click the next episode and ended up finishing it in a day so it gets some points there. Even though the fights themselves can’t be considered anything other than one sided massacre, they were still fun to watch.

Oh, almost forgot. The music is ok, the OPs and EDs are just fine and with the exception of one piece (which I just can’t seem to be able to find), all the others are forgettable. The animation is pretty solid though, especially during the fights. But, what good is animation when the majority of the show is as bland and tasteless as frozen dry fruits.

Tl;dr
If isekai is your thing, then go for it, but again if you really like isekai then you’ve probably already watched it. If you don’t like isekai and are going to try it because you’ve heard so many good things about it, then I’d recommend you to refrain from watching it. This is another one of those mediocre isekai that has been hyped to high heavens by the anime community. It’s literally like any other isekai.

*Spoilers in a marked section of the review*

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has one colossal issue preventing it from being the fun wholesome D&D comedy it wants to be. There are no stakes because of the insanely overpowered protagonist—Rinmuru. He was a 37-year-old office worker randomly murdered and then reborn in a new world as a blue slime in a JRPG-like fantasy world. It's an original twist on the typical isekai plot. Except, it's marketing bait. Rinmuru turns into a kid, and the whole slime thing gets thrown out of the window. Like most isekai power-fantasies, there's not much tension. Anything Rinmuru encounters in the world can be effortlessly defeated, draining any suspense out of the show. Instead, the story focuses on comedy and constructing a peaceful civilization.

Isekai power-fantasy anime with video game logic are nothing new. Still, this anime's premise isn't inherently flawed—mainly because it aims for a light-hearted tone in a genre full of dreadfully serious and boring shows. The animation in the first episode was excellent, and the background art was highly detailed. The quality quickly went downhill—however, it never lost its goofy colorful style. It balanced this light-hearted tone with some offbeat drama from time to time. At first, the stakes were always low because Rinmuru wasn't the focus; side characters' stories were at center stage. Rinmaru would defeat a group or save someone, and then they would join his civilization. After that, they would just become cardboard cutouts destined to sit in the background like furniture. No one in this anime ever gets developed. Most of them barely get any lines other than side comments. The dialogue isn't substantial. Instead, they make blatant observations. All of the humor got drained out. The writer resorted to the same dumb jokes repeated over and over. Haha, the monster girl has big boobs—peak comedy.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is dull, stupid, and can't decide what it wants to be. The massive cast of characters have no personalities, no individual sense of humor, and we get no sense of who they are. Once the show gets too bored of its slice-of-life aspects, it tries to pit Rinmuru against gruesome enemies like the man-eating ogres. There's no point to these action parts except mindless entertainment. There's no permanence because no one is in danger. As soon as the foes are defeated, it's right back to silly, vapid comedy and fanservice. Inevitably the tone became so mismatched that it was no longer enjoyable, even as passive entertainment.

Every supporting character is irrelevant—they're cannon fodder and fools to entertain Rinmuru. He never needs any of them. They linger around Rinmaru like his giant harem, showering him with praise and occasionally make quips like NPCs. By the midpoint in the show, the most important supporting character is Shion. She is continuously onscreen getting her boobs jiggled by the Rinmaru in slime form—that's the only time he becomes slime again. Anyone Rinmuru defeats pledges their loyalty to him. One character exceeds him in power, but she comes so late in the series and does nothing. Imagine an immovable object meets an unstoppable force—their fights could've been epic. Instead of building off one another, she acts like an idiot, then gets ordered around by Rinmuru. He's pretty much the only character, so this show earns one whole point in its character category. Rinmuru is mildly entertaining while he's a slime. After that, you realize you've got baited.

The tone has two settings: either unfunny comedy or overly serious. Rinmuru cracks jokes in the heat of combat, and it comes off as tone-deaf. The violent action scenes are quite strange because they clash with his irreverent personality. It tries to blend humor with seriousness in one scene, and the result is just confusion and boredom.

From time to time, the dialogue doesn't take itself seriously at all, and it's the show's best, but also the worst feature. The only thing that made it watchable, that kept me awake for all twenty-five episodes was the occasional funny line. They get sandwiched between bland lines of dialogue, breaking up the monotony. When Rinmaru quips at a weaker enemy for being stupider than him, it feels self-aware. Someone finally acknowledged the show is ridiculous.

Conversely, there is some palpable tension after one plotline gets developed for episodes and Rinmaru's underlings work to succeed. But after all that build-up, he steps in with an annoyed expression, taunts his enemy with a quip, then easily defeats them. It's boring. Who wants a main character like this? Before a fight, Rinmaru often says, "this fight won't be easy," BUT IT IS ALWAYS EASY. He is too ludicrously overpowered for what this show wants to be. He drains away all of the tension like a vacuum.

Another major problem with the broken story structure of this show is the pacing. The author has so little attention span that there can never be more than one plotline occurring at once. No time for character development. No time for world-building. We have a conflict, and we'll have to see it to its boring unsatisfying conclusion before the show can even introduce the next plotline. I never thought I would miss Overlord, but at least that show made an effort to tell a story. Every arc in SlimeTime but one ends with an anticlimactic letdown; even ones with flashy action set pieces are still unsatisfying. Any giant final boss monster can easily be killed in one punch as if Saitama himself was reincarnated instead of a boring-ass salaryman.

*Spoilers in this paragraph*
Dozens of potential plot threads get cut off for the sake of the final arc. Unresolved plot threads are left open to be revisited in the next season potentially—though I wouldn't count on it. And this is not a writing technique the author is intentionally using. Instead, this is a 'Plan B.' When the main plotline becomes monotonous and tedious, the author shifts gears into another one. The final arc in the show comes out of nowhere. The new characters, a group of kids, have no personalities other than one trait if we're lucky. Hollow, bland characters are par for the course in Slime Time, but this is where the show went from boring to painful. It tries to make us care about the new NPC kids. We were told by the show that they are going to die if Rinmaru doesn't help. Thankfully he doesn't care about anything, so he ditches his small civilization temporarily to help them. He resolves the conflict by himself, totally separately from the kids. They end up just following him around, trying to act important like the rest of the supporting cast in this terrible hackneyed series. But of course, they teased a second season. I can't wait for another 25-episodes of this mediocrity.

Overpowered main characters are a staple of the isekai genre, and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is no different. Studio 8bit's stellar art style and the first two theme songs were fantastic. However, the production was not enough to carry such a disjointed and underwhelming story. If you're a fan of the isekai genre, then you might enjoy the irreverent humor for a little while; Until that too gets devoured by the slime-loli-thirty-seven-year-old-virgin.

Life can be harsh and I’m sure most of us think so in some way or another. The typical everyman at adult age works an 8-5 schedule on weekdays to make a living. Satoru Mikami is a very ordinary person until he gets reincarnated as a slime after being killed in a knife attack. As tragic as that sounds, it may not be a harsh life after all. Isn’t life just full of surprises?

After being turned into a light novel, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime) is one of the few isekai shows that I genuinely looked forward to this year. While it subscribes to usual fantasy gimmicks, this show also does a unique job at entertaining the audience through its charismatic main lead, world fiction, and creative storytelling. I refer this show as more of a fantasy isekai, one that has a slime as the superstar.

Can the isekai genre really have potential to be more than just what's on paper? It certainly could for some franchises. This show is one of them. Satoru is reborn as a slime and his role is crucial to everything around him. Taking on the alias “Rimuru”, he makes up for his appeal through a variety of personality traits: kind, witty, laidback, sarcastic, courageous, and among others. When you look at all these character personalities together, Rimuru can be very likable. In the early portion of the show, we see Rimuru’s charisma and being able to lead supernatural creatures without fear. He even gives names to his new friends while showing his compassion. Rimuru is built to be special in the show. This is established through his immense abilities (such his Predator skill), where viewers can easily point fingers at him for being overpowered. Indeed, this isn’t an overstatement. In most of his battles, they are more like curb stomp face offs where Rimuru dominates his opponents. From isekai shows in today’s world, overpowered characters aren’t uncommon. What actually sets Rimuru apart is his unnatural charisma and human behavior. The witty conversations and small talks he engages with others often makes his fights much entertaining than they should be. Even in serious conflicts, Rimuru finds time to make jokes while being strategic enough to formulate a plan. Now, that my friends, is setting a likeable isekai protagonist by example.

Yet, this show can be a tearjerker at times too. The emotional context draws important value with a character named Shizu. After a titanic battle against a demon known as Ifrit, we learn about her past and Rimuru even inherits her will. Taking on her form, Rimuru realizes that he can’t save everyone regardless how powerful he is. It sets the path of his journey to keep promises such as being a mentor for younger kids. In the latter half of the show, Rimuru finds a group of children with magical potential and tries to lead them as a positive role model.

Even as an isekai show established with such a powerful protagonist, its character cast shouldn’t be overlooked. We meet a variety of characters with colorful personalities during Rimuru’s adventures. Some of the most noticeable ones includes his allies such as Shion, Shuna, Gobuta, Benimaru, Ranga, and later on, the Demon Lord Millim. Through Rimuru’s character interactions, it’s easy to see how his charisma inspires others. Many of Rimuru’s followers shows great respect for him and similarly, he deeply cares about them. Even Millim, a Demon Lord with overwhelming powers, takes a liking to him as the two forms an unlikely alliance. Respect of course isn’t just demanded but earned. Thanks to Rimuru’s abilities, he manages to make alliances with the most unlikely races. Under Rimuru’s leadership, he even sets forth to build a new country with his allies. The central element of storytelling relies on Rimuru’s way of showing his will. He proves this throug his actions and words. Really, by the end of the show, I felt like I understood Rimuru far more than I originally anticipated.

Despite my love for the show’s witty humor, colorful character cast, and storytelling, I should point out the anime still suffers from pitfalls. Fan service scenes with baths are common and Rimuru is still vulnerable to earthly desires in the fantasy world. In fact, I dare say the author made the monster girls as cute and sexy as possible. Millim and Shion are prime examples for their character designs. Just take a close look at them. Millim is pretty much half naked in her default outfit while Shion gives more of a mature lady vibe. Like most fantasy isekai, elves are characterized as desirable by males. This is shown early in the show when Rimuru encounters them and finds himself in brief moments of lust. While the storytelling has adequate development and carries an emotional weight, it’s hard to say that it’s great writing. In fact, many of Rimuru’s battles are extremely predictable even against the strongest of adversaries. In most of those fights, you should certainly expect Rimuru to be the winner. While the series also gives some of its supporting cast time to shine, most of the spotlight falls under our little slime-kun. Perhaps a bit too much...

Finally, 8-bit is back. After years of mediocre light novel adaptations like Infinite Stratos and Knight’s & Magic, Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken’s sets a bar for being a marvelous example of world fiction. The magical world contains fruitful amount of content such as the various nations we see. Tempest is the most prominent one ruled by Rimuru. Located in the Jura Forest, it’s a prime example of a monster country filled with larger than life characters. Meanwhile, other locations such as Brumund Kingdom and Dwargon reminds me of the high fantasy elements of the isekai genre. While the visual quality can look a bit cartoonish at times, it remains vibrant, bright, and contains a fine degree of palette. It suits for this particular show with its lighthearted humor. The character designs are of course worth mentioning in the case of Rimuru, the Demon Lords, his monster allies, and the infamous Veldora Tempest. At times, I feel like the author really put his thought into making them look as otherwordly as possible. The battle choreography also delivers a visual direction of what isekai shows should be. Nothing too groundbreaking but being able to showcase what characters’ abilities can really do. You should definitely not expect a DBZ-level style of action quality but be prepared for some jawbreaking cinematography.

Don’t you just wish life was simpler these days? Looking back at Rimuru’s adventure, I confess that I am a bit envious of his life. He is so carefree despite being an such a prominent figure in his world. Whether taking on the form of a slime, human, or Shizu, Rimuru makes everything look so easy. As such, watching this show felt like an easy way of passing time and enjoying what the author creator wanted us to experience. Now I wish life was easier.

*This review contains SPOILERS!*
That time I got reincarnated as a slime is basically a bad version of overlord. It started as a light hearted slimavilization which was fun in the beginning but then became horribly boring.


The premise starts off with our 37 years old virgin being killed and reincarnated as a jesus with a mix personality of a mary sue and being nice because supposedly being nice and having a god like power can make girls with big tits or naked lolis to like you. There's literally no story here. Rimuru is building his own slimavilization along with everyone he meets. There are no threats, no stakes, nor any tension in this already 1 dimentional story. The same goes with political workings as well. Our MC takes this Jesus attitude with everything, and characters always end up going 'oh okay, lets all be nice to each other'. In the meanwhile, the world has such physics that if monsters are named, then they will evolve. Basically my cat will evolve into a leopard if I name her.


All the characters are bland. All we have is an edgy MC, a big tiddy onee-san, another big tiddy dryad, a naked OP loli, a wolf and a bunch of goblins. Rest weren't rememberable at all. The only ones I liked were eaten the very episode they were introduced.

The worldbuilding is trash. The only thing we know about this world is about different species that live. The voice acting is bad at various levels accounting to childish voices. Even the music is pretty bad. Except for the first ending theme, which was semi-decent; the songs are a measure of how childish the show can go. The only thing that is preventing me from giving it a 1 is the artstyle and the animation, because of 8bit's solid technical staff.

15 Anime To Watch If You Love That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime

The isekai genre is probably the most oversaturated genre of the 2010s. When we look back on the decade, that’s the genre that experienced the biggest explosion in popularity. There’s one for every variation on the idea it seems...like being transported to another world in the form of a slime.

RELATED: 10 Anime To Watch On Netflix Right Now

Still, though it’s another entry in a tired genre, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime was a favorite for many anime fans in 2018 thanks to the high quality animation and a self-awareness many shows like these lack. It’s lead character Rimuru isn’t just overpowered, he knows he’s overpowered and uses it to his advantage to help those around him. It’s an addicting watch, and unsurprisingly it’s getting a second season in 2020. But in the meantime, here’s fifteen anime to try out while people wait.

Updated on: 21 December, 2019, with more anime like Slime Datta Ken that we're certain you'll love!

15 DRIFTERS

Drifters just barely fits the definition of an isekai anime. While most series, including Reincarnated as a Slime, tend to take someone who was unimportant on our world and make them into worldbeaters on another world, Drifters takes people who were already great in our world and sets them against impossible odds on another. We start out following Toyohisa Shimazu who gets placed in the alternate world after the Battle of Sekigahara, and from there meet characters like Oda Nobunaga and Barca Hannibal. This show is perfect for isekai fans and history buffs.

14 ARIFUETA: FROM COMMONPLACE TO WORLD'S STRONGEST

Not every overpowered lead guy is going to be a nice guy. Arifureta starts out with a decent guy in Hajime Nagumo, one of several kids in his class brought to another world to save it. But he has no powerful attacks and winds up being protected by his classmates...until he gets betrayed. After the betrayal, he ends up dropped into an even more dangerous part of the dungeon they were exploring...and gets his arm eaten by a giant monster. After that, Hajime resolves to become the strongest and make his way back to his world, no matter who he has to step on to get there.

13 RE:ZERO

The protagonist of Re:Zero wants to be overpowered, but unfortunately he wasn’t gifted with any cool techniques like Rimuru. Instead his ability is much more grim. Subaru’s skill is “Return by Death”, meaning he can go back in time after he dies, retaining his memory. Each arc of Re:Zero sees Subaru trying to change the world for the better using his powers, dying and essentially “restarting” until he gets it right. One of the most popular series of 2016, Re:Zero recently got a renewal for a second season.

12 LOG HORIZON

Shiroe is a young man who finds himself trapped in the game Elder Tale, just after it released it’s latest expansion. Winding up there alongside thousands of others on the same server, Shiroe has no way of escaping...and even death only causes him to reincarnate.

RELATED: 10 New Anime You Need To Watch On Crunchyroll This Fall Season

Fortunately, he’s just shy of the level cap in the game, and is one of the server’s more established players. Like Rimuru, Shiroe has to use his intelligence to help build a city for those around him, creating a working society for living people trapped in a virtual game’s world.

11 IS IT WRONG TO TRY TO PICK UP GIRLS IN A DUNGEON?

Sometimes what makes you stand out isn’t being overly strong, but rather the ability to become so. That’s what happens with Bell Cranel, a young man who’s the only member of the Hestia Familia, working for his goddess Hestia. Bell gains a strange skill which allows him to power-level, gaining vast experience incredibly quickly as long as he works hard. Like this, Bell goes from a weakling who needs someone to save him in episode one, to gathering people around him from his strength and gentle nature by the end of season one. This series just got a second season after five years, so people won’t have to feel cheated when they finish the first half.

10 ONE PUNCH MAN

If a lead character that’s easily capable of defeating anyone is the appeal of Slime, then One Punch Man isn’t much of a stretch recommendation at all. Saitama was once a simple salaryman who decided to quit his job and become a hero, sticking to the same training regimen everyday until he became more powerful than literally anyone else on Earth. It’s this incredible power that draws both heroes and villains around him, even as he lives his life oblivious to how powerful he really is. With the first season becoming part of the cultural zeitgeist in 2015, there aren’t many anime fans who didn’t give this series a try, but if they haven’t there’s no better time to dive in.

9 NO GAME NO LIFE

The legendary “Blank” is a gamer who’s never lost a game. Blank’s secret? They’re actually two people—a brother sister duo named Sora and Shiro. The two of them wind up being challenged by Tet, the god of games, and soon being invited to the world of Disboard, where every conflict is solved via games. Sora and Shiro are both perfectly suited for this world, but they’re also matching up against ancient races which have had centuries of years to acclimate themselves to this world. They both agree to try and unite all the races under humanity, but humans are actually the lowest ranked race, making their task an arduous one.

8 OVERLORD

Overlord is yet another “trapped in a virtual game” world series with a super skilled lead character. You’d think such a specific concept would get old, but it turns out there’s a lot of ways to execute it well, as this series is actually quite popular. The wizard Momonga is a player in the game Yggdrasil, but after several years the company chooses to shut the game’s server down.

Choosing to stay in the world until it’s shut off, Momonga instead sees the game not only continue, but for the NPCs to suddenly have lives of their own. Rather than leave, Momonga stays and continues to study this strange new version of Yggdrasil.

7 KNIGHT'S & MAGIC

Tsubasa Kurata is a coder who dies being hit by a car after buying his favorite mecha. He’s reincarnated in another world as Ernesti Echevalier, or “Eru”, a young man born to a family of nobles. Thanks to his skill with engineering in the old world, he becomes skilled not just in the new world’s magic, but in building “Knights”, the giant robots used as a primary form of military might in this new world. Knight’s and Magic gives us a classic overpowered protagonist, as Eru shoots this world from “realistic” robots that are just giant hunks of metal to laser-firing Gundams in a matter of years.

6 WISE MAN'S GRANDCHILD

Arguably, no other series on this list is more like Reincarnated as a Slime than Wise Man’s Grandchild. When Rimuru lands in another world, he gradually starts “upgrading” the monsters around him, creating a city for them to live in that goes from medieval to modern rather quickly. This series does something similar, as Shin Wolford already has exceptional talent with magic before being trained by some of the most powerful mages and warriors in the country. But rather than hoard that power to himself, he starts training his best friends, helping them to better their lives and defend their lands. For those who can get past the usual isekai tropes, there’s a decent show underneath this.

5 KonoSuba

KonoSuba follows the story of Kazuma Satou who dies an early death and is reincarnated in a different world full of all sorts of crazy things like magic and Demon Kings. With the help of Aqua, Kazuma aims to defeat the Demon King, but he isn't quite cut out for the job.

Kazuma's party is joined by many others such as Megumin, a young mage, and Darkness, a crusader. KonoSuba ensures that fans set off on quite a journey that isn't just interesting but hilarious. If you love Slime, there's absolutely no way you won't enjoy watching Kazuma and his party going through the harsh adventures of a parallel world.

4 Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon follows the story of Kobayashi, a girl who lives her day-to-day life in the most boring way possible until a dragon comes over to her place. The dragon, named Tohru, can transform into a human form as well.

They're soon joined by another Dragon who goes by the name of Kanna and before you know it, they're a family going through the day-to-day struggles of normal people. Although the anime doesn't follow the logic of your average Isekai, it does so much more to explore the characters, and we're certain that you'll end up loving it.

3 Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku

Death March follows the story of Ichirou Suzuki, a guy who spends most of his time debugging games. Surprisingly, when he goes to sleep, he's pulled into the world of the games that he often works on. Going by the name of Satou, he forms his own little party and leads a big adventure in the new world that he belongs to now.

Although the summary of this anime certainly feels like every other Isekai one, it is refreshingly different from your average Isekai. Instead of focusing on select goals, this anime focuses more on the characters absorbing more of the world they are transported to. Akin to Slime, the world-building here is fabulous and that's exactly why we love it.

2 Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu

Also known as How Not to Summon a Demon Lord, this anime traces the adventure of Sakamoto Takuma as he's transported into a strange world where he's Diablo, the Demon King. Starting his journey as a slave of two girls, he uses his clever powers to turn them into his subordinates and begins his adventure.

Sakamoto and Satoru are very similar to each other when you look at the fact that they lack any form of social skills. The two of them also possess incredible powers that they could easily use for doing evil deeds, but neither of them wants to do it.

1 The Rising Of The Shield Hero

Shield Hero focuses on the story of Naofumi Iwatani, who is summoned to a new world that needs his help. Along with others, his job is to act and stand in the face of evil and injustice. Due to the hardships he faces regularly, Iwatani starts losing hope and becomes a cynic.

However, that's certainly not the end of his journey as he continues to press forward, slow as it may be. Naofumi Iwatani's journey is praiseworthy, and we're certain that it's something you'll like if you enjoyed watching That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime.

Plot[edit]

See also: List of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime characters

Satoru Mikami is an ordinary 37-year-old corporate worker living in Tokyo. He is almost content with his monotonous life, despite the fact that he doesn't have a girlfriend. During a casual encounter with his colleague, an assailant pops out of nowhere and stabs him. While succumbing to his injuries, a mysterious voice echoes in his mind and recites a series of commands which he could not make sense of.

After regaining consciousness, Satoru discovers that he has been reincarnated as a Slime in an unfamiliar world. At the same time, he also acquires new-found skills, particularly the ability called "Predator," which allows him to devour anything and mimic its appearance and skills. He stumbles upon Veldora Tempest, a Catastrophe-level 'Storm Dragon', who was sealed for 300 years for reducing a town to ashes. Feeling sorry for him, Satoru befriends the dragon, promising to help him in destroying the seal. In return, Veldora bestows upon him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection.

With his newfound powers and his wisdom, Rimuru gains the friendship and loyalty of the monsters inhabiting the Great Jura Forest, who accept him as their leader and together they found the nation of Tempest. As their new nation quickly grows in strength and influence, Rimuru and his subjects draw the attention of the nearby foreign powers, from monarchs and legendary heroes to demon lords, some seeking to become their allies, while others intend to just take advantage or destroy them completely for the sake of their plans.
