The isekai anime series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensei Shitara Suraimu Datta Ken, also known as TenSura) has released a brand-new trailer for its second season. The announcement for it was made on its official Twitter account. The first part of the new season will premiere on January 12, 2021—so we are barely two months away from new content. The second part is due for a summer release in July, but there will be a spin-off, called The Slime Diaries, which will launch in April 2021. This gives fans months of content!
But that is not all the content its viewers are getting—Eight Bit, the production house of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, has been releasing OVAs (Original Video Animation), called OADs, for the series, and the fifth OAD is due to be released soon on 11th November this year. Unlike how the second season was delayed from Fall 2020, the creators have continued to give us OAD episodes.
The new trailer gives us glimpses of what we can expect—Rimuru Tempest and his region will be returning to our screens. “Storyteller”, by Japanese singer TRUE, is the opening theme; we are treated to a preview of this as well.
Another announcement has been made about STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION performing The Slime Diaries’ ending theme song.
The first season, which debuted in 2018, has 24 episodes and you can watch it on any anime streaming platform. Here is how Crunchyroll describes it:
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.
Originally a light novel series by Fuse and Mitz Vah, it was serialized between 2013 and 2016 on Shōsetsuka ni Narō.
The new season will be streamed on both Crunchyroll and Funimation simultaneously as it airs in Japan.
