'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' is based on the light novel series written by Fuse.
Season 1 introduced us to Satoru Mikami, a 37-year-old corporate worker living a monotonous life in Tokyo.
He died after getting stabbed and reincarnated as a slime in a different world. He befriends a Catastrophe-level 'Storm Dragon who gave him his new name, Rimuru Tempest.
The two embarked on different adventures together, defeating monsters as Rimuru slowly transforms into his ultimate slime form. Gone are the boring days since Rimuru's reincarnation.
