"Rimuru Tempest" is the new name of a slime in a fantasy world taken by a former 37-year-old human Satoru Mikami after he is killed by a passing robber. Broken free from ordinary, stale past life, his fresh adventure in a fantasy world as a slime monster with unique abilities begins.
6 episodes in, and I can firmly say that Tensei Slime (or TenSura for short) is the isekai series to end all isekai series that has since premiered this year, and with Tate no Yuusha on the horizon to come next season, we're all set for (FINALLY) THE good isekai series to come out with full force.
This is a prelim and I'll just keep it short, because this is just too good. A slime, saving the entire isekai genre? I can live with that!
Story and characters:
Pretty much how EVERY isekai series start with the MC, some XX year-old Don't-care-what's-his-name got his life lost in the
real world, and then transported (or how I like to call it isekai-ed) into the fantasy world, but the character himself (or ITself) is really damn unique, taking in the form of a slime, which we hadn't seen for majority of isekai stories out there which are trying their "failing" best to be outlandish. And when do we see evidence trying to be broken right on the first try "RIP to MC's computer*???
On the one hand, for what has been presented, Rimuru the slime reincarated itself is really quite the character I never expected at one point but it really works wonders, being able to do all things that slimes usually do. And if you thought that Rimuru is OP, don't, because troubles will come in the next 3/4 of the show. And for those concerning the adaptation, it has been clarified from MAL that it's the manga, NOT the LN (which is based on the manga itself also). The characters, startting with Tsundere dragon Veldora to the goblin (Goblin Slayer, you're NOT welcome here T.T), werewolf and dwarf tribes were all quite interesting and this was all that I'd expected and more. Interactions don't feel as forced, but still has its comedic moments with the Great Sage-Rimuru analysis and such.
Art and animation:
A new refurbished logo for a flourishing studio. I can honestly believe that even with some worrying staff behind TenSura (such as director Yasuhito Kikuchi for his work on the Infinite Stratos series and such), this is studio 8-bit's Magnum Opus that is second to the awesome adaptation of the Grisala VN series. The artwork is simply great and captivating and the animation is top-notch too. Simply just one of the great components that flourish the qualities of the manga-translated adaptation to its best.
I'm just gonna take it straight: Where in the world will you get SO MUCH reveal just by looking at the OP and ED? It's like we're only just started, and immediately everyone notices it so much that the hype train just went up by a few notches! Besides that, people were expressing a bit over concerns that both the songs for the OP and ED are good, but if swapped around. I really thought that the OP was great for starters on the series itself, and TRUE's ED was leaps better, but really worked well as the ED. Regardless, this was a top-notch OST.
If you're reading my review and haven't watched this amazing isekai series, then what the hell are you doing? Go binge-watch the XX amount of episodes you have left out! Truly a great start to beat the Monday blues.
*If you are just too tired to read the whole thing just skip to the last paragraph*
This show puts a smile on my face.
Every season there is one show that just makes me happy as a person and makes me not regret getting into anime.
In Winter it was Yuru camp, in Spring it was Hinamatsuri, in Summer it was Cells at work and this Fall it is about a slime.
That time I got reincarnated as a slime is a show that actually makes you feels like you were reincarnated as a slime. These 6 episodes actually focuses a lot on the world building and
our MC finding a proper way to live there instead of giving him a harem.
*minimum spoiler review*
It is about our MC who got stabbed and was reincarnated as a slime. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand this but the selling point of the series for me was that everything was just making more sense than the rest of the isekais out there. The MC isn't just powerful by sheer luck he was
reincarnated in a cave and was named by a dragon and because of that he became powerful WHICH is the reference to the game logic that the villains having a name are more powerful than the ones without it. The MC then swallows him. The story right now focuses on the adventures of our MC (his name is Rimuru btw so I should probably stop calling him MC) in this world as a slime. The lowest level monster there is and waiting for the dragon to come out so that he can tell him about his adventures.
There is our MC which is the most realistic person to die die into the fantacy world. NO HE IS NOT A LOW LIFE ANIME LOVING WEEB, he is just a gut who works in an office. And he is a virgin.
Goblins were the first creatures that were introduced to us in that world and rather that making goblins look like..well like..Goblin Slayer goblins (i haven't checked the other reviews out yet but I am 100% sure EVERYONE has mentioned this) they are wayyyy more lovable and sweet.
Dwarfs are awesome and manly creatures who are true to their masters.
And the wolfs are pretty much the same.
There is not particularly any track that is spectacular. Some are rather forgettable but they all give that *fantasy world* charm that is necessary to have and they do it really well. The OP and ED are both really good.
Art and Animation-9
8bit studios have never been bad with animation. The animation is spectacular and consistently good with great details.The fight scenes so far (even if they are small) are good. The art is also pretty good with vibrant colors that just mixes well with the world.
The show has its own charm that just makes you wait eagerly for the next episode to come. It makes me happy and is a treasure for isekai genre.
After watching the first episode of Goblin Slayer I was actually planning to make a sarcastic review by just talking about it. But I just couldn't.
You might have noticed that I have not made an enjoyment section, that's because it is subjective (not because I am too tired and lazy :P). For me it is 10/10. This is my first review so I hope you will be easy on me.
A modern staple of fantasy legends, the Slime Monster is an amorphous, shapeless, gooey creature best represented by the original Dragon Quest Slime. They are typically weak, but certain slimes, such as massive ones, ones made of special materials, or ones that are immune to damage, can be quite dangerous and deadly. Its usual attack is to engulf its prey.
The Slime is an iconic creature from Dragon Quest, but the existence of slime monsters dates back at least as far as Dungeons and Dragons, to the Gelatinous Cube. Which is suggested to be an invention of Gary Gygax.
Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken is an adapted
series of Manga written by "Fuse" is the Maga Theme adventure and fantasy series was first released in March of the year two thousand five eventually got serialized this season.Seri was adapted by "8bit" and got twenty four episodes that started to date the two months ago, this series was so much not found many loggers of manga and anime because this series has a very unique story story as well as in the bamps of comedy elements that are very inviting lace tits make this series begin to reap its popularity.
Tells the story of an office employee named "Satoru Mikami" who wants to go to a restaurant to eat with his theme. But in the middle of a trip an unexpected event a criminal suddenly attacked his theme armed with courage and a sense of responsibility he was willing to sacrifice his life just for the theme Stabbed by the villain. Before he died he told his theme to destroy his PC (Personal Computer) because inside the PC had a very important secret document. For most people, we thought that we only lived once in this world but Satoru was strangely thrown into fantasy world where things that are impossible can happen in some of their abilities in the world he did some experiments including magic. But he still did not know why he was thrown in that strange world and why he turned into a slime instead of a human?
After being thrown into the world Fantasy Satoru met a dragon he asked about the world after chatting so many satoru decided to make the dragon his family and they changed his name to the "Tempest" Sorator himself changed his name to "Rimuru Tempest" but the dragon was still in the seal by the big crystal chunks to sealed the dragon's power the Satoru decided to bring the dragon by eating and analyzing how to free the dragon and that's the story rolling.
The themed of this series adventure has a good graphic quality not just a background or can we call the Landscape this series is also good in the character design.Seri has a very unique character that rarely owned any series is "slime" color selection so so many contrast making the real impression of the audience.Seri adapted from the manga is illustrated by "Kawakami Taiki" is quite interesting because it has a very unique character makes the illustrator difficult to adjust to other characters but it is not a big obstacle even with the very unique character can add to the storyline to become more interesting.
This series has a main character "Rimuru Tempest" he is a work office worn for stabbed by a criminal, in the unique capability of making this main character this is much popular than people not only the time appearance also no less as a unique creature Slime also has a funny and adorable impression. "Tempest" is a family name that has two members that is "Tempest Verudora" is a dragon that is cighed in the crystal and the other "Tempest Rimuru".
Incomplete if a good animation is not supported by the sound section. The "8bit" studio party brought in "Okasaki Miho" who will fill the Rimuru Tempest voice. For the studio's opening theme, "Takuma Terashima" will sing the nameless story as the opening theme. the opening theme will be sung by "TRUE" titled another colony.
As the Manga and Light novel reader if the two things got the serialization then it was so glad to be first-shaped and the following now the series began adapting to being a video.Resial was honestly he was nice since I read the Mangananya series and I really enjoyed the series and in the end the series got a serialization was the news is happy. In this season has some very good series of one of these Tensei Slime this.
Tensei Slime is THE isekai of the season, with a great first episode, it presented a relatable main character and how he ended up getting into another world but in a slime's body, all of this on a great animation budget and a good background music. I personally enjoyed it very much. The plot itself wraps p pretty originally and in a good way it connects up beetween events, in a not-rshed pace everything gets developed in a way that you get to really like most of its characters.
Rimuru himself is the star of the show, this cool slime fella is imensely cool, cute and
pretty likeable, he is a good guy, everyone in the anime likes him, everyone watching the anime likes him, he's the kind ideal protagonist a show should have, and most of all, he's original, I mean, when did you see a talking genious magician slime before? I say, never! He being a slime is the main reason everyone likes him, he's jsut original, if he was a simple teenager japanese boy, it wouldn't be the same thing.
Most of the sub-characters are great, we get to know the goblins(which in this anime are good, as opposed to the goblins in a certain other anime), they're carismatic, they're likeable. Same thing can be said about the wolves, tough less carismatic, the leader of the bunch is pretty cool.
Animation-wise this anime is great, I simply love the opening theme's animation, it's really well done, as well as the general animation, nothing feels bad or rushed in it.
OST, except for the great OP theme I don't think there's something really great about it, quite forgetable I must say :/
And that's about it, a more great than good story, a outstanding art, a ok music, a great character and of course I had a outstanding enjoyment.
Overall a great show with imense potential.
