This series is quite big in Japan from what I know. Not only do first week sales of its LN volumes (~30k) far exceed the usual sales of other isekai series (5k-15k, not counting other top titles like Overlord/Re:Zero, etc.), but even it's manga adaptation gets into top rankings.

I can only hope that the staff members and 8bit are aware that this isn't an anime project that they can affort to fail...

It's a slime. You do know what a slime is, right?

Well, it's popular, either novel and manga. Hope they won't ruin it, but as long it's an Isekai adaptation, I'm not sure.

Well, fan wiki argues that his "human" form is genderless and doesn't have any sexual characteristics. But the fact that MC has a definitely feminine appearance and got female seiyuu in adaptation, leads me to the idea that the title is going to follow the path of pseudo-otokonoko\yuri.
Even though I read the manga, your guess is as good as mine. Male AND female characters have been attracted to his human form, and yes, he looks feminine, but his gender has never come up in the manga.



if you read chapter 11:

Well, I don't know how this is used in plot, but I think that as in the case of Houseki no Kuni, it can give an anime good LGBT fanbase.

I correctly understood, MC in a new life are agender, but takes a female form to communicate with other people? Or his human form is also sexless?
He was a man, he got reincarnated as a slime, and the human form he often takes is female. Go figure what his gender actually is.
