One day, Shuna and Shion are fighting over Rimuru's squishy slime body as usual. Rimuru figures that giving them each a body double of himself would solve the conflict, but when he imagines some of his other friends asking him to do the same for them, he quickly drops that plan. Then he comes up with the idea to make a cushion in the shape of his slime form. He travels around Tempest to see if his friends know of any good materials he can use, and he learns that a special type of sand found along a lake shore in the forest is exactly what he's looking for. So he sets out to collect some sand... but a monster is waiting for him by the lake! What's more, Milim hears about his plan for a picnic and comes racing down from the sky!

My opinion of Slime much differed from the others. I found it a casual watch, but I also understood why others revered it as an amazing anime of the year it came out on. To me, it was a satisfying grind which much resembled the satisfaction of building up a new home, with funny and likeable characters. Essentially, Slime was Civilization: The Animation. How does the 5 OVA episodes hold up, though?

To put it simply, there are 3 story arcs within these ...

Mixed Feelings
Finally, after a grueling wait, it finished airing. For the record, this OVA was released along with a lengthy schedule and also in a weird drip-feeding manner.
the second episode was the first one to air, and then a pause that spanned almost 4 months was issued until the second episode finally aired. That's when I was able to move along with my life, and start anticipating the wrap up of a sadly, average screening.
Taking away everything that made the parent series so popular and lovable, the massive world-building, the built-up confrontation and the breathing surrounding the world, these two episodes enticed their gaze and provided ...

It is hard to review this short series, because it is split into two diametrally different parts.
And this split is why the series got such a low score. The two halves clash with each other so poorly.
On one side, first two episodes of plotless, unfiltered ecchi. On the other, the rest episodes of fun children adventures.
Let me repeat it again, pure, wholesome children adventures preceded by porn-lite.
Of course thei time gap between emission kind of justifies that. But binging them one after another gives a huge whiplash.
If only second part had its own series I'd give it much higher score. But even with it present, ...
