In this blog post, we'll be reviewing the events of the anime, "Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken", in 5 minutes. Let's recall what's happened in the anime so far so that we're all ready for the new season of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime"!
Number of seasons: 2
Number of episodes: 24 (per season)
Release: Fall 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Demon, Magic, Comedy
The anime starts strong with an older MC than we're used to being stabbed after living a normal, easy life as an office worker. As you all already know the isekai trope, he is transported into another world but this was the first time that an isekai anime had the MC reincarnated as a low level monster. As a slime...
The comedy aspect of the anime was already gleaming from the first episode as our MC was making hilarious remarks despite his sudden appearance change. When he finally meets Veldora the Storm Dragon, our MC's life changed dramatically from that point on. After being named as Rimuru Tempest and absorbing Veldora to try and free him from his prison, Rimuru sets off outside of the makeshift Cave of Wonders to start his adventure.
Rimuru makes first contact with other living things like sentient Goblins and wolves who are at war with each other. Using the skills provided to him by the extremely overpowered Sage inside of him, he stopped the conflict and led the village of goblins and helped the wolves coexist with the goblins.
Rimuru then meets and hires dwarven craftsmen to help develop his village even further and meets another reincarnation from the previous world, Shizue! Helping overcome her past, Rimuru allowed Shizue to pass without regret. Rimuru absorbs her, giving him a human form to morph into.
After meeting the Ogres and making them fall head over heels for Rimuru's power and personality, they joined the village and Rimuru's dream to create a kingdom of monsters.
At the same time, we are introduced to the lizardmen and the spirit of the forest who warn of the incoming Orc army sent by a Demon Lord behind the scenes. To deal with this incoming danger, Rimuru formed an alliance with the lizardmen people to fought against the Orc leader who was a pseudo-demon lord himself.
Demon Lord Milim is also introduced to us as an insanely overpowered character who, not surprisingly became a friend of Rimuru's instantly! She helped deal with the Megalodon (not surprised right?) and then visited Rimuru from time to time to play around in his interesting town.
After this amazing part of the anime, the season ends with Rimuru helping save Shizue's students in the school she worked at as the kids were all reincarnated children that were dying.

With this season being so crazy, it was divided into two parts, Part 1 being the season we just watched and Part 2 coming very very soon.
In Part 1, we encountered the other Demon Lord, Carrion and Rimuru formed diplomatic relations with his country, Eurazania which is also a country of monsters.
However, with this move, several other rulers and demon lords were angered and put their schemes in motion. The Kingdom of Falmuth decided to march in the name of holy conquest and vanquish the newly formed city of monsters (actual nonces, hate these guys!)
Demon Lord Clayman, who's attempted to mess with Rimuru in Season 1, is now working on his own plot using a spy embedded in the town.
Despite all of these setbacks and several goblins & ogres actually dying, Rimuru goes full slime mode and gets revenge on Falmuth Kingdom by slaughtering every human being on their side of the war.
The introduction of death in the anime meant that more dark events were coming in the near future. This also includes the mega event of Rimuru becoming a demon lord himself...
Demon Lord Rimuru (sounds so freaking cool) revived his fallen comrades and decides to finally free Veldora from his prison using his new powers for the huge wars coming in Season 2 Part 2!
I absolutely love this anime, the progression of the story, all the loveable characters and the fact that its still funny even after such huge events like the Demon Lord Orc and several residents of Rimuru's Kingdom dying!
Can't wait to watch more of it and see Rimuru grow his Kingdom even further ❤️👑❤️👑
