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.

Personally one of my favorite Anime's of all time. An absolute masterpiece in my eyes. Very few shows can gain that sort of respect from me but this one checks all the boxes, and its a show I recommend to nearly anyone because its quite different from other anime's and stands out but is still absolutely amazing, this is a must watch for anyone who watches Isekai even if you haven't it's still amazing.

The style alone of this show is on par with all the best shows you've seen and is a newer style of a show and it starts off with a bang ...

Mixed Feelings
Slime starts off as a pretty decent Isekai. Season 1 especially started off really strong - it felt kind of like a progression / cultivation / LitRPG, with an incredibly OP character who slowly builds a community. It has levelling up, skill strengthening, ally recruitment, and town building - the kind of storytelling I find oddly compelling! I couldn't put the first 15 episodes down AND it was really funny!

However, the show pretty frustratingly and quickly devolves into totally unnecessary fan service (later with a loli character, which is a hard no / red flag for me), and the plot becomes way less interesting ...

This is one of the worst titles I have ever seen.
Bad plot, bad art, fans who are extremely painful and toxic to negative opinion about this piece of clay... One fan explained to me with a serious face that slime is much better than re:zero and ngnl >because it's shit. Although it later turned out that he did not watch either one or the second.
Average OP main character, stupid dialogues. I don't know what else to say. This title literally does not represent anything outstanding. And what cannot be called outstanding in it cannot be called good in terms of execution. This is a story ...
