Thirty-seven-year-old Satoru Mikami is a typical corporate worker, who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, other than failing to nail down a girlfriend even once throughout his life. In the midst of a casual encounter with his colleague, he falls victim to a random assailant on the streets and is stabbed. However, while succumbing to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind, and recites a bunch of commands which the dying man cannot make sense of. When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has reincarnated as a goop of slime in an unfamiliar realm. In doing so, he acquires newfound skills—notably, the power to devour anything and mimic its appearance and abilities. He then stumbles upon the sealed Catastrophe-level monster "Storm Dragon" Veldora who had been sealed away for the past 300 years for devastating a town to ashes. Sympathetic to his predicament, Satoru befriends him, promising to assist in destroying the seal. In return, Veldora bestows upon him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection. Now, liberated from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a fresh journey with a distinct goal in mind. As he grows accustomed to his new physique, his gooey antics ripple throughout the world, gradually altering his fate.

Encoder's Notes

Finally season 1 BD to rewatch while waiting for new season 2 episodes.
P.S. Imagine if the slimes in most games are like Rimuru.

The first episode is over twice the average size thanks to the Great Sage adding heavy grain all over the video every time he says something. I had to filter it scene by scene for reducing all that grain otherwise it would’ve ended up a lot bigger.

An isekai that doesn’t immediately turn into cringe harem garbage? Count me in!


A strong mix of humor, action, and a single slimes drive for a fun wholesome life. And it only gets better.


First 5 minutes made me so hype and I never even read the source material. Animation looks great and the protag is immediately likable

There are always second chances in life.


It frustrates me how good this show is when it sounds like such trash :P
Honestly my favourite of the season by a wide margin so far!


The smartphone is just a disembodied voice this time.


what the fuck
