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 read more

Modern day, Japan. Takeba-Yashi is a macho, with the body of an Olympic athlete, who works in a company as a system engineer. It is an open secret, there are many work-related suicides in Japan. Work is too stressful and sometimes you do not even have enough time to return home. Takeba-Yashi is tired of the routine. ‘Let it be, life will never change and it will always be the same, so I will just swim with the stream’. However, one day he falls asleep. When he awakens, he sees 3 Gods: the God Creator, the Goddess of Love and the God of Life. The read more

Isekai has come out in full force recently giving us a lot of different isekai adaptations, many of which appeal to the same sort of video game inspired wish fulfillment sort of set up. And while there is nothing wrong with this on paper, it does end up feeling very samey when these wish fulfillment isekais hit on the same notes over and over again. Endless power, lots of cool video-game like abilities, and a harem of cute girls. I get the appeal but it often leaves a lot to be desired to me. On the other hand there is Kami-tachi. Don't get me wrong read more

With each new season I like to read the synopses of the new isekai shows, not because I think they’ll be any good, but instead to see how the “standard isekai protagonist” has aged with the audience. It used to be highschoolers getting hit by trucks to enter the magical anime fantasy realm. Then it became college students, and now we have people in their mid-to-late twenties working soul-crushing IT jobs before biting the bullet. I can’t wait for the day when otakus are all geezers and we get to watch a show where an 80-year old dies of cancer and is reincarnated as a read more
