The wraparound band of the light novel Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken's (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) twelfth volume to ship on Friday revealed that the series will be receiving a TV anime adaptation for Fall 2018. More information will be revealed at a later date.

Synopsis
"Rimuru Tempest" is the new name of a slime in a fantasy world taken by a former 37-year-old human Satou Mikami after he is killed by a passing robber. Broken free from ordinary, stale past life, his fresh adventure in a fantasy world as a slime monster with unique abilities begins.

The series is written by Fuse with illustrations by Mitz Vah. It was published under the "Let's Be Novelists" website from 2013 to 2016. The series has also been published by Micro Magazine since 2014.

A manga adaptation of the same name drawn by Taiki Kawakami began publishing since May 2015 in Kodansha's Monthly Shounen Sirius magazine. It currently has six volumes in publishing with the seventh scheduled to ship this Friday.

Yen Press licensed the novels since December last year under the English title That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. The first volume debuted last month. Kodansha Comics USA began publishing the English manga version since August 2017. The fourth volume was recently released last month.

I'm so familiar with this name because it always gets my attention when I was in bookstore, but I never read it as I think it would get adapted some day. I'm pretty interested to see an anime with a slime MC.

Not surprising considering the level of anticipation surrounding an eventual anime adaptation of this. Since I've heard about it so much and seen it in the rankings a lot, I'll go ahead and give it a try.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Bro, even if MT needs an anime adaptation, it won't be any good if they do a 12 or 24 episode series covering just his childhood. IT needs some serious investment of time and quality to deliver something that can be at par with the novel!
If rushed it might end like death March which is getting some serious backlash from many fans

The best isekai light novel has finally getting it's own anime which is no surprise.

Considering how popular it is and also ranks highly in both LN and manga sales.i expect it to be a 2 cour anime.

It is also not a generic harem isekai series infact, i would not even call it a harem.

Harem tags get destroy by the lack of Pegu and Vegial ( They are more in debt to Rimuru than anything but you could consider this the first Slime's Harem anime )

'Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken' Gets TV Anime Adaptation


My thoughs: Ok, that was predictable. The novel and manga are selling like crazy for some time and has the same feeling of Log Horizon. Maybe they were holding this novel to make a full run or a 2-cour adaption for a TV station.

Studio: 8bit


This anime is going to be a disaster. Another Isekai Smartphone and Death March trash. This studio screams low budget all over the place. If you're a fan of this novel prepare yourself.

This could be interesting.


That's pretty common in isekai too. Doesn't save writing quality sadly, see Death March.

In term of world building this is one of the best. Much better than Death March for sure.

Dem, why 8bit. My hype is going lower :(

Ebata Ryouma doing the designs? Kinda interested in what they'll look like. And hoping having Takahiro Kishida there means it won't be all CG.
8-Bit and Yasuhito Kikuchi don't give me much hope though.

Really? Studio fucking 8-bit? I expect it to be shit. If it won't be complete garbage I'll be pleasantly surprised. Goblin Slayer got White Fox so I was optimistic that Slime wouldn't get fucked over, so much for that.

"Light Novel adaptation"

"Lol I bet this is another fucking isekai" *clicks topic*

AND OF COURSE
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

Dont forget Arifureta cuz this 2 with the slime one were one of the higher selling LN that didnt have an anime yet so if one got it, then it was just a matter of time for slime one to get the same treatment.
As for Neverland from what i seen in this past months the sells for it keep rising, simply getting more popular so personnaly i am expecting an anime of it in 2019 thats why kinda still stopping myself from going and reading it dont wanna spoil myself :P

Another isekai show that seems aliright. But it seems like a lot of people have a massive hate boner for studio 8bit. What did they do wrong?
