Adapted from a light novel series written by Fuse, ‘That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime’ (aka ‘Tensei Shitara Suraimu Datta Ken’ or ‘TenSura’ or ‘Slime Isekai’) is another one of those Isekai anime shows where the main character ends up dying and then finds himself in a whole new fantastical world. However, this one comes with a twist—the character takes the shape of a slime in his “afterlife” and then sets out to save his new-found world.
For the uninitiated, there’s probably nothing new here but what makes it unique is its simplicity and its creative fantastical elements. So, it’s understandable how this anime manages to stand out in the crowd of other similar shows. With that said, if you have been wanting to know more about its second season, read on.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Plot: What could it be about?
From what we know about its source, the second season will first kick off with a brief recap of all the events that led to Rimuru traveling back home. Following this, Rimuru might get attacked by Hinata. She will assume that he is dead, but Rimuru will narrowly escape this and make his way back home. There is a good chance that even Tempest will be under attack and in order to protect it, Rimuru will create his own army of heroes. Meanwhile, Demon Lord Milim Navathe will wage a brutal war on the Beast Kingdom of Yuurazania and surprisingly, while all this is going on, Rimuru will be somewhere else far away from there.
The first season of ‘That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime’ left us with a lot of unanswered questions. If one can correctly recall, there is a scene in which fairy Demon Lord Ramiris intricately explains how a person has to make a huge sacrifice in order to become a Demon Lord. This itself serves as some foreshadowing for the second season. In the sequel, after Rimuru will return and find Tempest being taken over by all the opposing forces, he’ll turn to the Great Sage for a solution. The Great Sage will offer him a complex solution that will come with a great price—transform into a True Demon Lord but suffer the pain of losing 10,000 souls. So at the end of the day, it all comes down to whether he’ll make this trade or not?
