That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime season 2 is set for premiere in January 2021. It is an isekai genre anime that packs some amazing funny scenes.
A middle-aged guy dies and gets reincarnated in a different world; this is the only part of the story that can be considered remotely sad.
As soon as the reincarnation completes, Rimuru realizes that he has become a slime, the lowest ranking monster.
However, his unique ‘predator’ skills allow him to become one of the strongest opponents. We are then taken on a funny and slimy adventure in a different world.
The official website of TenSura season 2 has released a new visual for the upcoming anime. The anime will be released on 12th January 2021.
The new visual shows Rimuru and Hinata standing back-to-back. The other characters are also shown in the background in a panel design. The visual foreshadows the upcoming conflict between Rimuru and Hinata.
Although the anime was supposed to be released in October 2020, it was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The second season is a split-cour anime. The second cour will be released in July 2021.
A spinoff anime called Slime Diaries was supposed to premiere in January 2021, but it has been delayed to April 2021.
Season 2 Plot
The new season will be a lot more serious and action-oriented than the first season. The fun and games will continue, but the plot is about to take a more intriguing turn.
Rimuru and Hinata will be facing each other in battle. Hinata is a strong character who fights for humankind to no end. She doesn’t shy away from seeking help from the most unlikely person when her empire is in danger.
