“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! Thrown into this new world with the name Rimuru, he begins his quest to create a world that’s welcoming to all races.”
This is my favorite, favorite, favorite anime to watch right now. I seriously never want it to end. I thought I was over the “Japanese character gets shoved into another world/game/etc trend but NOPE. It sucked me in. It subverts a lot of the tropes (the main character is a friggin slime!), and is just so enjoyable you can’t help feeling happy after each episode is over.
It’s really oddly wholesome in a way that’s indescribable. Just how Rimuru interacts with the world around him and is just so pure of heart and accepting of others is so refreshing. I get sad after each episode is over only because I know I’ll have to wait another week for the next one to update! I never know what the next one will bring, and thankfully there’s no spoilers for the “next time on” other than the title of the next episode (I really don’t like shows that do that!).
The cast has a wide range of characters and races from cranky dragons and dwarves to adorable and kindhearted goblins (not a phrase you often hear! Especially considering the other anime that’s popular these days. Note: Goblin Slayer is NOT teen friendly. DEFINITELY NOT. Don’t watch it. Especially the first episode. Please.).
Stay tuned for our next Anime Night on December 3 at 5 p.m. Dun dun dun~!
