At the ending of the first season of the first season of the anime, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, it was announce there will be a second season. On Twitter it was announce that the season was green-lit for 2020. So what does that mean? Mostly it means that they really plan on producing it and is moving forward with such. For those who heard about more this year in 2019 there is a OVA planned for the end of the year. A OVA is an Japanese anime made specially for release in home video formats without prior showings on television or in theaters. Many times it is harder to get these seen in stateside but that is becoming less true with how popular legal streaming has become.
In the first season, episode 1 to 23 covered volume 1 to 4 of the light novel. While Episode 24 and 25 are both Anime Originals. But for those who worry if second season will follow the light novel assumption would be that they follow the light novel. Many times when they don’t it is mostly because they don’t have enough source material for them to work with. For those who don’t know, later this month they are going to release the 14th novel of Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken, the Japanese title of the series. It is also often shorten to TenSura. Below is the plot.
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” Verudora 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, Verudora 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.MyANimeList.net
