I was so hyped for this and it didn't let me down, I expected them to cover a bit more but it's alright.

This along with Shieldbro will be awesome! Isekais done right

I wasn't expecting them to drag this part out to fill an entire episode. It should be getting better from here if it's anything like the manga.

Honestly, going in blind as always, I find this quite interesting in some ways. Didn't have any high expectations at the beginning but this has seriously intrigued me. Way better start than some Isekai anime's I have seen in the last year or so.

A tsundere Dragon was just too funny!

Seeing as this adaptation will get 24 epiosdes, this might not be so bad as I expected. I am definitely looking forward for more.

They showed Rimuru's human form on the first episode, idk, i'd call that a huge spoiler. When i first red this on the novel i got really surprised.
Also shizu is a qt animated, and i can't wait to see shion and gobuta.
10/10 anime

Knowing that its 8bit i thought we'd get like 30 chapters in the first episode LMAOOO.


That's why one should rather look at the individual staff involved rather than the studio. Gives a lot more insight on how a show might turn out :P

you are 10000000 % right, but im just really wounded by rewrite adaptation even 2 years after. W-wait rewrite had a good episode 1 too as far as i remember, so lets hold the excitement for now and wiat for more.
But even on reddit someone noticed that the anime is being taken care of like a very caring mother cares for a newborn. And i felt that as well, so im more confident in a very amazing adaptation

Around 200 or 300 chapters into this LN methinks. I'm kinda glad they're slowing it down a bit to explain everything, but at the same time I'm worried just how much they'll actually get into the story given it's only 24 episodes...... There's so much world building to get to and so many characters and events to go through.

Hopefully they'll adapt at least up to the Labyrinth.... I'll be a happy LN reader if we get at least that far.

Well... Quite good start. I loved to see how the main character was dying and bleeding ( I havent seen it in any isekai since now), but also the story seems quite good, also the animation quite fluid and refreshing, also the character design seems pretty good. Let's see if that continues like this!

Do you REALLY have to ask this question, considering your profile picture?

I'm sure most male in the current 2 generations want this wish granted when they die.

The tsundere dragon is going to be the best character, I can already see it. Didn't like much they changed MC's voice when he turned into a slime, but I guess it fits his new race.

Rewrite Episode 1 was alright, but it did suffer from god awful CG. Still feeling the wounds from that one, this episode was way better then Rewrites episode 1 regardless.

I think I'm going to like this anime. The MC is certainly someone I can relate to. I'm almost 30, never had a real girlfriend, and I live what some would say a far too simplistic life. Sigh... the sad and lonely lives of us nerds. :p
"You talk too much. Think too much."
"I don't care how justified you think your reasons are. I won't tolerate liars or thieves."
"If you're not going to be nice to me, don't expect me to be nice to you."
"I'm a soldier, not a superhero. Don't ever think of me as one."
"The world doesn't revolve around you. Get that through your thick skull."
"People who live by their emotions go nowhere in their lives. They only find misery.
"If you don't like the way your life is than do something about it instead of sitting there feeling sorry for yourself."
"You want something go get it. Period."

Not a bad first episode to be honest. I went in thinking it would be some comedy ecchi kind of show, but the pacing was chill here. A decent introductory episode.

Rather disappointing - MC voicing is too childish and the way they handed atmosphere is plain bad. My guess - it will be typical "we wanted broader audience so we produced boring generic bullshit" -_-

Wow, this first episode was just awesome, i enjoyed a lot, i laughted a lot, i am really impressed about this show, with one episode i am hyped to see more!

When he was talking to the "system" and learning how his body as slime works, he just ate everything cause he had nothing to do!

His interaction with drake Veldora where really awesome too, i laughted a lot too! Seems the drake looks like a Tsundere! xD

His friend threw his computer to water, he just had to throw HDD, and could use stetup for himself!

This first episode for me is 10/10!

that skill acquisition sequence visual is the littest thing i’ve seen for a while, it’s like Bakemonogatari visual for a moment, how they incorporate it with real life image and stuff.

but i’ll expect the fighting scene will be better, please dont pull up an Overlord 3, at least for the first 12 episode or something

this is gonna be an interesting ride.

WHAT THE HELL

CONSIDERING IT WAS 8-BIT I'M THINKING IT'S GONNA BE SHIT

I had no idea what to expect going into this, since I knew basically nothing about the source material beyond basic things. But this was fun. I don't know if I'll eventually watch all 24 episodes while they air or just wait for it to finish, but for now, I'm in.

I don't know how a ball of slime can be so cute but... it really was adorable.

I know nothing about the source material but I really enjoyed the first episode! It got a few laughs out of me and despite all the explanations I was still really interested. Looking forward to more and I'm glad it's 24 episodes.

Pretty decent start.

I know the MC has to die somehow but they could've at least made it more convincing. Random man starts running on the street with a knife, stabs MC who gets in the way and runs away? Come on, we can definitely do better than that.

The part where he told his kouhai to erase his HDD was pure gold though, if this is supposed to be a gag series then I guess all the ridiculous stuff is fine.

Pretty exposition heavy first episode, lot of stuff regarding skills and world setup. Never a bad thing.

The tsundere dragon was amusing. xD

Production quality is pretty good as people have mentioned, let's see what comes of this.

8-bit sure love to end their opening/ending in a field of flower, not that I'm complaining.

As for the episode it was just great, I came with the lowest of expectation because of 8-bit and the first promotional art that had sketchy character design that were too moe too my taste but this episode just shattered all my expectation. Now if the 2nd episode doesn't drop in production value I'll be hyped for this one.

I had 0 expectations for this show but surprisingly enjoyed this episode. Slime is moe. Tsundere dragon is moe. I'd be fine if the show was just about them going on adventures together.

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a typical ecchi harem like most isekai shows.

Unlike a lot of Isekai shows,this one needed the info from the start about his abilities and such,or it may have got confusing later on.
Have to say though,I really enjoyed it,and I hope it keeps going in a similar fashion.
Can't wait to see what happens next,though I have read the translated LN so far.

this seemed like one of those everyone kinda hyped up , just been hopin for a half decent isekai and isn't that hard lol granted this one started off with the standard afair only difference he was brought back as a slime and befriended a tus dragon hopefully this offers a bit of a different approach to this over saturated genre (though i'm already worried about him getting a human form and already having a ton of strong skills..)


looks like Ryouma Ebata might have worked on some of the animation cool~!

I read the LN and the manga and let me just say... HYYYYPPPPEEEE

The animation quality is decent nothing too outstanding but nothing too horrid. The VA is not that bad, slime!rimuru's voice is exactly how I imagined Satoru's voice sound like after reincarnation.

More importantly VELDORA..... ILYSM; this tsundere dragon is one of the very FEW tsunderes I actually like.
I kind wish they voiced some of Rumuru's tsukomi's when Veldora laughed (his 3 staged laugh kukuku-ahaha-AHAHAHAHA!) lmao.



Now I can cross off one LN that I wished was animated. Next one is "Kumo desu ga, nani ka?"

PS. 24 Episodes?!?!?! YASSSS

First episode was funny, the dragon slime friendship should be entertaining.

Hope this will be great as this start.

Why in the world people are putting reviews for 1 episode.
Some of those reviews arent even for the anime but instead for the manga...

The fucking music during this episode though. Jeeze it was amazing!

I really liked it, also the episode answered a lot of questions I had. Like if he would get a body eventually and the use of his powers in this new world.

My guess is the"Summon" was the girl who was taken in the Fire in the very beginning.

Too much exposition dumps, but the weird presentation kept me watching.

I have literally zero hope of this actually being good but I guess I'll see where it goes from here. It probably can't be worse than some of the other isekai that's come out recently...

Holy shit i haven't seen such a strong introduction into an anime in ages. At first it thought this was just going to be another generic isekai trash, but it actually looks interesting. The characters introduced so far are nothing special but i love the dynamic of the slime and dragon.

Also the animation is spectacular and if they animate those fight scenes from the OP/ED (PLS DO) then i can see this becoming my second most hyped anime of the season; first is reserved for jojo part 5.

One of the best first episodes I've seen in a long time. Understand that I don't read a manga if it has an adaption, so while I know in general what happens, it's all new to me. Looks like it could potentially be the AoTS for me at this point.

Very tragic the way this anime began, the MC is stabbed by a thief and this reincarnates in another world, decent enough. Rescue the MC's act to save his Kouhai, the boy was getting married and the MC sacrificed for the happiness of the couple, also the last will of the MC "I destroy the hard drive of my computer", could not stop laughing .
The MC reincarnates in a Slime that has the ability to acquire new skills and absorb all things he digest, not bad indeed, I would like to see the slime fighting skills, not his human form,but I would like in its slime form.
The encounter with the dragon was different and funny, that tsundere side did not bother me, on the contrary it seemed funny to me.
I see a good future for this anime, I read that it is the adaptation of a WN and LN, so I will try to read them, they also mentioned a manga that I will also look for, in one of those I got more excited about watching this anime, I did not plan to see it at the beginning , but I saw many positive comments, I gave it a chance and it fulfilled my expectations.
PS: Kouhai is a good friend, he complied with the will of the MC and promised to name his first son with his name, this boy has my respect.

Seem I'll have to prepare myself for an excessive amount of horned characters. I'd prefer they be more scares than what I saw in the ED. Almost made them seem like the majority of the population. Humans seemed like the minority unless there's smaller races.
