Feb 20, 2020 12:15 AM
Publishing company Hobby Japan announced an anime adaptation of Roy's Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko (The Man Picked up by the Gods) light novel on Thursday.
Ryouma Takebayashi dies in his sleep at the age of 39 after leading a life of misfortune. Taking pity on him, three deities offer him the chance to reincarnate in a world of magic where he has only one mission: to be himself and enjoy life. They bestow upon Ryouma powerful physical abilities as well as the affinity to master all elements, and promise to watch over him. His new life as a young child officially starts when he is teleported into a forest.
Three years go by. Having spent most of his time researching slimes, Ryouma has managed to evolve unique kinds of slimes, training an army of them while developing his magic abilities. Although the young boy is happy with his hermit existence and comfortable cave home, he somewhat misses the company of humans. But after healing an injured member of a passing group of travelers from a duke's household, Ryouma is persuaded to go with them and exit the forest accompanied by his menagerie of slimes. A whole new world awaits him, where his skills as a magic user and slime tamer continue to elicit surprise and admiration. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
Roy launched the adventure fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in July 2015, garnering over 240 million views. Hobby Japan began publishing the series under its HJ Novels imprint with illustrations by Ririnra in September 2017. The eighth volume will go on sale on Saturday. The light novel has a cumulative 1 million copies of its volumes in print.
A manga adaptation drawn by Ranran has been serialized in Manga UP! web magazine since November 2017. Square Enix shipped the fourth volume in October 2019.
J-Novel Club and Square Enix licensed the light novel and manga in English under the title By the Grace of the Gods last November, respectively. The first light novel volume was published electronically on February 1. The first manga volume is scheduled for a November 2020 release.

This is a much better synopsis
One day, the life of middle-aged Japanese businessman Ryoma Takebayashi came to a rather sudden and disappointing end. Ryoma had never had a blessed life, but after his death, three great gods sought his cooperation and reincarnated him as a child in another world with swords and magic! Receiving a most cordial and divine welcome from the gods, Ryoma decides to live leisurely on his own in the forest for the time being. Working diligently at magic and hunting, Ryoma’s greatest passion comes to be researching his tamed slimes?! Training a variety of slimes (some newly discovered), the curtain rises on this easygoing life fantasy celebrating a second life with kind people in another world!

Wow I hope it would be great! Like I didn't bat an eye for ascendance of a bookworm but oh my was it fun to watch.
Most people confuse overrating with overpopularity, for example the poor SAO is a victim of this problem.
Nor is there overrating, only people who do not know how to qualify fairly, like me.
