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" Verudora 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, Verudora 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 read more

*Spoilers in a marked section of the review*

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has one huge issue preventing it from being the fun wholesome D&D comedy it wants to be. There are no stakes. Nothing matters all because the main character is insanely overpowered. Rinmuru was a 37-year-old office worker randomly killed and then reborn in a new world as a blue slime in a JRPG-like fantasy world. It's an original spin on the generic isekai... until he turns into a loli a few episodes later. Like most isekai power-fantasies, he is immediately overpowered. Anything he encounters in the world can be effortlessly read more

I use to ponder how isekai is an unusual phenomenon, seeing how it's rather so popular and draws so many people in with its stories. But the more you watch, you start to see that it really isn’t—it’s quite understandable, really. The fandom of light novels tends, more than most, to be fond of wish-fulfillment and self-insert type stories. And of course, isekai is the ultimate platform for that. Maybe there was a time, before it became almost unimaginably overused and tired, that the word “isekai” didn’t immediately elicit a groan—but that time has long since passed. The genre is overplayed and overdone, and almost read more

*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 NEET 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 read more
