Deep in the forest, far from any human contact, there lives a child named Ryouma Takebayashi. He engages in the rather strange hobby of keeping various types of slimes as pets. Furthermore, despite his young age, he has a sturdy physique and good compatibility for magic. All of this is because, having endured much hardship in his previous life, three gods grace Ryouma with a second chance to pursue one goal: savor the wonders of life.

After three years of comfortable solitude pass by, Ryouma meets people that will change his current life forever. When he encounters and helps some soldiers tend to their wounded comrade, the group convinces him to accompany them to visit the nearby town's ducal family. Ryouma agrees and soon embarks on a journey to explore the vast world beyond his home.

I loved this anime. It's one of my favorite kinds of anime. Relaxing and chill, Animal Crossing like vibes.
Lay back and forget the world is burning beyond your doorstep while a cute reincarnated kiddo runs a laundry service and makes friends. Has it's dark moments, but, it's all about finding peace after chaos and heartache.
Very lovely and heartwarming. Not too shounen or too shoujo. Just a good wholesome anime to help you forget your troubles for a short bit.
I expected it to be like "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime" but, it's even more chill than that. It also reminds me ...

Mixed Feelings
As a manga reader, this adaptation was both nice to see and a bit disappointing. The manga is full of world building, lore, character growth, and some pretty good action that all get cut for the anime.
They had a clear goal in mind for what point to end the season. It's a logical one, and they keep the pace pretty consistent. However, to get to that point, the show skips so much that it feels like parts and entire characters are missing.

For example, the manga has a mini-arc and fight scene in the mines that's completely skipped. It's one of the only times the protagonist ...
