Slime Isekai revolves around Rimuru Tempest. In his own world, Rimuru went by the name of Satoru Mikami. He used to be a 37 year old man, working for a corporate company and had no girlfriend.
While saving his friend, he got stabbed and died. In his last moments, a voice echoed in his head, granting him powers. Satoru was then reborn into a new, unknown world. What’s interesting is that he was reincarnated as a slime.
Satoru discovers that he has gained significant new powers. He can use an ability called Predator, to devour anything and assume its form. As he was exploring this new world, devouring magicules to strengthen himself, he came upon a dragon called Veldora. They became friends and Rimuru devoured him, promising to set him free someday.

Now before we can move forward to more details about Season 2, let us quickly recap the events of Season 1.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Events
Satoru is reborn as a slime, renamed Rimuru. He converses with a ‘Great Sage’ in his mind and discovers various new abilities. He meets an ancient Dragon named Veldora, who was sealed years ago in that cave. They became friends, and Rimuru decides to free him.
He then escapes the cave and helps some goblins fend off dire wolves. After a battle, Rimuru creates and alliance between the Goblins and Direwolves.
He gives them names using magic, and that helps them evolve. He decides to help them settle down. But the goblins are bad artisans so they travel to the city of Dwargon to get Dwarves to help.
At Dwargon, they go through multiple events and with difficulty, succeeds in getting the help of some Dwarves. Here, Rimuru learns that he is the destined one and sees a girl in a vision. The Dwarf King Gazel, suspicious of Rimuru, sends a spy after him.
Soon, Rimuru meets Shizu, the girl he saw in the vision, and learns of her terrible past and that she too, was a human like him. With time, Rimuru is forced to consume her and assume her form.
After this, Rimuru meets and allies with Ogres. They prepare for an upcoming battle with the Orcs. The Orc Lord has manipulated the Orcs int becoming extremely dangerous creatures.
A Dryad asks Rimuru to defeat the Orc Lord. After a great fight, both the orc army and the orc lord is defeated by Rimuru and his subordinates.
Rimuru now forms the Jura Forest alliance, allowing Goblins, Direwolves, Orcs, Ogres and Lizardmen to live in peace. He soon has a bout with the Dwarf king and wins his trust. This leads to the formation of Jura Tempest Federation and it becomes a nation.
Next, Rimuru meets the Demon Lord Milim. She has immense power and seems undefeatable. So Rimuru feeds her honey and befriends her instead. The other Demon Lords also take note of Rimuru’s powers.
Rimuru soon faces the powerful beast Charybdis and only manages to defeat it due to Milim’s immense powers. They defeat the Megalodons and manages to bring peace to Jura. They make a non-aggression pact with Demon Lord Carrion.
In a dream, Rimuru learns of Shizu’s students and decides to adopt them. At this time, it is revealed that it has been 2 years since he has been reborn into this new world. Rimuru heads to Ingrassia to get them. The kids accept him after he defeats them and decide to follow them.
However, they are supposed to face a dark future and Rimuru recides to save them. After an altercation regarding spirits, Rimuru manages to save the kids and gives his magicule-suppressing mask, that he inherited from Shizu, to Chloe.

We will end this with short review of the first season of Slime Isekai.
Slime Isekai Review:
The isekai genre has been muddled in the recent times, owing to increasing clichés and mediocrity in writing. Due to the seasonal format of anime, every year multiple isekai get released.
These are mostly forgettable one-time watch shows. And in the midst of all these second rate shows, we get Slime Isekai, a genuinely good isekai show.
Through this season, Slime Isekai has proved its capability in world building and character writing. Rimuru is a genuinely well written character and his development is very nicely handled.
Despite being childish and fun-loving, he has shown impeccable decision making, presence of mind and leadership capabilities. He managed to form a nation, uniting multiple species that were previously at war. His power and intellect is worthy of praise.
We get a very large and diverse cast of characters. All of them manage to stand out properly, owing to their beautiful designs and personalities. We see how characters change under the influence of a strong leader and how they make good choices when they have something to look forward to.
We see multiple themes handled through this side characters, that is, loyalty, unity, jealousy, usurping, greed and so much more.
One character that particularly managed to stand out is Shizu, despite her low screentime. Her sad past, her journey to find peace, her actions and their effect on Rimuru; all of these are profound and beautiful in a sense. She brings a new level of maturity to the story. Her character is so well written that it warrants it’s own spin-off.
The plot is ever-so-interesting. It never stalls at any place, frequently changing it’s nuts and bolts, creating a new experience will every phase. First we got the reincarnation and discovery of powers and an ally. With this, it established a firm base to build up on.
Then we get to see great development in multiple characters, whilst building a nation. This not only serves as world-building, it also adds a lot of details of this new world, so as to familiarize the viewers with this new setting. The we get glimpses of the darkness in this world, viz the story of Shizu and the Orc battle.
We also get an idea of the supreme beings of this world and how utterly strong they are. The story quickly jumps ship, bringing in a new phase where Rimuru has to deal with some children and his interaction with them, via bonding and teaching is truly entertaining.
Slime Isekai is a very strong contender to be the zenith of the isekai genre. It even shines well in the animation department, owing to fluid action scenes, a certain degree of flashiness, a beautiful world with a variety of impressive characters, and so on. Even in the words of famous anituber Gigguk, Slime Isekai is the best isekai.
And here is the trailer for the upcoming Season 2 of the That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime anime.
There is news of Solo Leveling manga getting an anime adaptation as well, nothing has been announced but we will keep you updated.
