The franchise has had a successful run with its two previous seasons and a third season in under-production.

Its source material is Taiki Kawakami’s manga, an adaptation of Fuse and Mitz Vah’s light novels.

The first season of the anime premiered in October 2018 on Crunchyroll and Funimation (English dub).

In January 2021, the second season’s first cour premiered, following which extra stories were adapted as anime.

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.
