according to this http://www.ten-sura.com/staffcast/

the anime is following the manga not the light novel which kinda explains a few things


Oh no pls dont follow the manga story, the pace is too slow especially afther Orc Disaster Arc, too much slice of life story, iff follow Ln/Wn, Rimuru already meet Yuuki and the 5 children Hero


it all depends how long it will take to get to that part , i presume the wolf part will be at the end of episode 2 and one of the kingdoms will be episode 4 and the orc disaster arc will probably start with episode 7 or 8

Lol, now we get a tsundere dragon.

Btw, is there any romance or Harem element present in it because there are no rom and harem tags on mal?

was looking forward to this anime since I completed the web novel, but the 3d animation and childlike VA voice is just breaking the immersion. not to mention the out of place shocking expression of the main character =(
will still watch it nevertheless

The visuals in the transformation scene was definitely one of the most unique ones I've ever seen in anime, I felt like I was on the bloody Wired Sound website.

Outside of that, still, there was a certain dissonance in the tone; the visuals were very 'out there' and experimental, the sound was traditionally grandiose(in an un-weird way), and yet the premise and script was light-hearted and comedic. No idea if this was intentional.

What I can say is that while the above aesthetic choices were mildly interesting(if not good) the episode was less than fun. The setting bores me, and the infodump was done in an unexciting way. Certain infodumps can be fun- I liked SSY's infodumps, for example

Also 8bit and the rumours surrounding the anime don't fill me with excitement. Not expecting much

No, there is neither romance nor harem in it. Escpacially not within the content the anime will cover. There are only two girls who "like" the protagonist, but it's not really in a romantic way, more like girls who swoon over the lead singer of a pop-idol boys group.

Expecting really good things from this show. Animation looked great, action scenes in the theme song was nice and smooth. I was sort of doubtful about the show, considering the director never really made anything that promising except IS (which was average too).
It was good really.

so many people seem to like this episode and i cant understand why! this has to be the worst episode i have ever seen. the death scene just looks stupid. when he is reborn in the new world nothing fun, interesting or exciting happens. it is just 10-15 mins of boring, unnecessary and uninteresting info dump through dialogue.
was i interested in the characters? no. was i interested in the story? no. did it at least make me laugh? no.

1/10

1 the death scene was made to be stupid
2 how tf do you that those infos dump are unnecessary by watching the first ep only lmao

comes here to hype with people (CANT WAIT TO SEE THE REST OF THE EPISODES!!!) sees a ton of hate O.O why!??! this show looks really fun and promising!

The dying scene was kind of meh I have to admit! Everything happened so quickly! But I really like how they explained him getting the skills (feeling hot and cold etc when he was dying)! The death was way better than... you know... the deaths in many other reincarnation-to-another-world shows xD

Also I LOVE his personality as a slime! It was adorable watching the slime bounce around and just chomp on herbs and rocks because 'it had nothing to do' I literally squealed when it propelled itself out of the water! The tsundere dragon was so A++! A majestic beast wanting to be friends with a (seemingly) lowly slime! I LOVED that scene!

I enjoyed this episode so much, I'm wondering if I should wait until it's complete before I watch... waiting for each episode seems like it'd be hell T.T

No, it's just the usual occasional people who just aren't compatible with the show. That always happens. If you look through the thread, the vast majority loves this series. Some of the comments even sound like commercials due to their isekai skepticism, e.g. "at first I was skeptical, but when I saw the show it was truly amazing!" and such. Also got an 8+ average score, which I had thought would be impossible for an isekai in 2018 that's not a well-established sequel like Overlord.

what does that have to do with this show? u compare a fantasy-shounen to a ecchi harem? makes no sense to me, but oh well. if u cant come with a argument for why i am wrong or say why u like it then whats the point in commenting?

There is no such thing as an argument to be made here, because to most people the points you listed are either non-existent (e.g. how set-up is "useless" before even knowing whether or not it actually is, as this was just episode 1) or are weighted way lower compared to their positive points which appearently don't exist in your eyes, maybe because your sense of humor is incompatible with this show or whatever. It's a pure matter of personal preferences.

Also the fact that our positions are reverse in TLR, shows that there probably isn't much room for common understanding or meaningful discussion between us, so that's that. Move along. As long you don't turn out to be like one of those haters in the Aldnoah.Zero threads, we can just agree to disagree compeletely and call it a day.

This one has surprised me! I just thought that I will drop this in the halfway of the episode before starting like the last season's slavery isekai shit, but this episode kept me engaged in the whole episode. I like the comedy and the tsundere dragon. Also, seeing the fact that our slime can turn into a human in the opening intro was reassuring. Cause, I wouldn't really want to watch the adventures of a slime.

I said it was poorly written and lazy.
as for TLR, its a long time since i watched it, and would probably score it differently if i re-watched it again. but ofc as with any show its personal preference.

Good start, 8-bit. While watching the anime, I also read the manga adaptation that already published in my country. The funny aspects from the manga is still there on the anime. I hope they consistent with it, since the manga successfully shake my stomach, i have huge expectation on the anime too.

But seriously though, those post-production effects? The whole thing felt like a bad college film that tries to hide it's 'bad-ness' behind a bunch of wacky visuals.

Are we watching the same thing or you just had a very very different taste? The post production effects are top notch and I did not even glimpsed a tiny bit of what you were trying to refer to here.. The art direction are on point for me.

This is shaping out to be very very interesting and I do hope they keep the momentum.

Finally! An isekai trying to be what it's supposed to be: a fantasy adventure serie with a light tone (at least by now).

That being said, the chapter was just ok, as I expected. Just a normal introduction chapter with some funny and charming moments. Enough to keep me watching.

Man, I'm surprised by how well done the first episode was. I expected Verudora to be CGI, but no! How glad I am about it. tho tbh I still found it a bit weird how accepting the MC was about the fact that he was "reincarnated". Other than that, I like pretty much everything.

Based on the OP and PVs I still don't like the character designs of the anime (compared to the manga), but this episode was a whole lot better than what I expected. It even made me look forward to the show from now on. The overall production quality also seems surprisingly good. As others have mentioned the audio and visual effects are great.
I wasn't sure if Veldora's voice is gonna fit him but it seems like a decent match, Rimuru's voice when he was a human is quite good, his voice as a slime.. well, it's very different from what I expected (like some female voice for young males) but it is fitting for a genderless slime and it might grow on me with time I guess.
The OP is alright.

according to this http://www.ten-sura.com/staffcast/

the anime is following the manga not the light novel which kinda explains a few things

That contradicts the fact that the opening shows characters and fights which didn't appear in the manga yet. Also nothing in the manga would be a good ending point for a 24 series anime. Orc Lord is far too early and Millim is... not really much of a climatic finale. It's more likely that this will end either with the "science experiment to disprove Clark's third law" (LN vol. 5), or with Walpurgis Night (LN vol. 6). Can't imagine any other moment in the story than these and both are past where the manga currently is.

Also I think this franchise has the particular trait of always doing some changes which the other media didn't have yet, like for the anime, the scene of the Kouhai actually throwing the PC into the bath didn't exist in any of WN, LN or manga. The only thing that really stays the same across all media is the main storyline itself.


As a manga reader myself can i please know that at which volume of the LN is the manga currently at?

I am not completely sure, so take my word with a grain of salt, but I'd estimate it somewhere around end of LN vol. 3 up to early part of LN vol. 4

That is if by "where the manga currently is" you refer to the monthly shounen sirius release and not the actual volume release, or even the english translation of the manga volumes. So yea, the estimate I made above is for manga chapter 44 ("In Brumund Kingdom, part 1") or 2-3 chapters further, since I didn't check up the exact newest release yet. I think the anime will reach this part around episodes 12-15, but it depends on how much stuff the manga has will be skipped so it can be continued to be sold as "manga exclusive content", because the manga is such a commercial success.

I wanna follow slime boi on his great adventure to build a harem(?) and use his slime abilities to take over the world. Along side with his new tsundere dragon friend I'm sure it's possible. Though I've heard there is a good story actually for this show so I'm excited to what adventures are to come. One thing I would also like to say is that I really like the art style.

No matter the situation, keep focus on what really is important:







Yeah I was pretty disappointed they changed his voice also it was like we ended up getting a whole new character from who we were introduced too and also just made him look more childish. It was funnier with his deep voice turning into a cute slime.
