That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Vol. 1 by FuseAs players of Monster Hunter and Dungeons & Dragons know, the slime is not exactly the king of the fantasy monsters. So when a 37-year-old Tokyo salaryman dies and wakes up in a world of dragons and magic, he’s a little disappointed to find he’s become a blind, boneless slime monster. Mikami’s middle age hasn’t gone as he planned: He never found a girlfriend, he got stuck in a dead-end job, and he was abruptly stabbed to death in the street at 37. So when he wakes up in a new world straight out of a fantasy RPG, he’s disappointed but not exactly surprised to find that he’s not a knight or a wizard but a blind slime demon. But there are chances for even a slime to become a hero…

Kill Bill: Vol. - This week, Nick and Andy debate whether or not its unique quirks are enough to set it apart in a crowded genre.
Contains Spoilers. Rimuru is a great character that shows a few trace aspects of his old life, but more than anything serves as a reference point for explaining the world to the audience. World building is handled very pleasantly, never overwhelming and only as a means to further the plot. This more than anything keeps the anime fresh and interesting with every episode. If anything, we can only imagine telling you to skip Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken for now just so you can binge watch it after the 2nd cour finishes.
Synopsis: Corporate worker Mikami Satoru is stabbed by a random killer, and is reborn to an alternate world. But he turns out to be reborn a slime! Official Crunchyroll Synopsis. Probably not the first time a dragon has found themselves in this position. Small touches like the dying protagonist asking his friend to delete his hard drive or big plot elements like our hero, Satoru, being reborn as the lowliest of beings, a slime, rather than an ultra powered human being made it feel like classic Isekai tropes were broken and new territory was being chartered in a genre that could seriously use a breath of fresh air or a quick and complete death according to some. Almost everyone he meets is forced to acknowledge or be defeated by his immense power.
What is it about? Satoru, a year-old salaryman, has found contentment in his routine, ordinary life. That ordinary, contented life comes to an abrupt halt when he becomes the victim of a random stabbing. The bar for isekai anime has gotten lower and lower over the years. With each passing season, the genre seems to reach new depths, from harem antics to ridiculously overpowered protagonists to the normalization of slavery. Slime-toru, instead of the adult male voice of his former human body, has a cute, childlike voice as he internally narrates rolling around absorbing magical flowers. His slime face is generally expressionless, but occasionally forms features like a shocked face or a little popping vein.
