5. Conclusion

The recommended way to start TenSura is to first go through the light novels and their spin-off volumes. The spin-offs are entirely optional, and it is up to you if you want to read those. Nevertheless, it is a fun read.

You can later read the manga after completing the light novels. To say that you would enjoy reading it would be an understatement as every character development and the power levels are so detailed and enjoyable, it will make you crave for more.

Web novels are also a delight to read. The storyline of the light novel and the web novel deviates from each other, but the web novels are still sought after and are equally enjoyable.

The recommended chronological order is the best way to enjoy the anime series. You can skip the OVAs, and the special episode of Veldora’s Journals as these are only the recaps of their respective seasons.

The Slime Diaries: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is a spin-off, and it is optional. So you can watch it either with the main series or after completing the seasons.

6. Where to Read That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime?

Light novels and manga are hard to find online on legal sites. Although it is tempting to read all of it from any pirated site, I urge you to buy the physical copies and support the creator’s hard work for providing doses of entertainment every year.

9. About That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as Slime is a Japanese manga series written by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz Vah. It was serialized online in 2013 but was later shifted to Micro Magazine as a light novel in 2014. It currently has sixteen volumes.

The story of Tensei Shitara Slime follows the journey of Satoru Mikami after he died and reincarnated as a slime in fantasy land. A slime is a creature that reproduces the form and powers of anything that it absorbs or eats.

Satoru starts eating all the magical herbs and crystals in the cave he woke up in and stumbles upon a dragon who had been captured and couldn’t move due to a barrier. Since both of them had nothing else to do, they befriend each other. The dragon accidentally makes Satoru a named monster, and Satoru promises him that he’d find a way to break the barrier. Hence, an unknown journey begins with this unusual friendship.
