Spring animation from April has started one after another this year. The time when the cools change is like a kind of festival for anime lovers. Many people will be enjoying the long-awaited anime.
May 20, ABEMA announced the anime work that started in April 2021 as an “intermediate” ranking. , Announced the cumulative number of views from episodes 1 to 5 on “ABEMA Anime Channel” and “ABEMA Video”, and the animation ” 300 years after defeating slime, I don’t know ” depicting the slow life of the witch Azusa in a different world. I’ve reached level MAX before. ”Was ranked first. Speaking of “slime” in the title of the same work, I think that RPG fans from old times have the image of a Zako monster that they meet at the beginning of the adventure, but in recent years, the number of works focusing on that slime has increased, and the audience is attracted. Entertaining. So this time, I would like to introduce three animations in which slime plays an active role.
Slime spirit appears for 300 years after being defeated
First of all, I introduced at the beginning, “300 years after defeating slime, I reached level MAX without knowing it.” Originally a light novel posted by Kisetsu Morita in “Become a Novelist”, the original is still serialized as of May 2021. A so-called “reincarnated thing”, a story about Azusa Aizawa, an office lady who died from overwork, reincarnated into the immortal witch Azusa Aizawa. Azusa lived by defeating slime every day to earn the minimum amount of money in order to enjoy the slow life that could not be done in the previous life, but after 300 years, he noticed that the level reached MAX, and rumors spread. It’s a story of dealing with troubles that come in. Looking only at the synopsis, it seems that slime is not active. However, the twin spirits “Sharsha” and “Falfa” are born from the slime soul that has been defeated. It looks like a girl about 10 years old (actually about 50 years old) and is adopted by Azusa. It is popular because of its bright and cute appearance, and it is the main character in this work. Not only Sharsha and Falfa, but also characters of various races appear, and spend every day “300 years after defeating slime”. It’s a work that you can see in a relaxed mood, so I definitely recommend it to everyday anime lovers.
No.1 in appearance! The slime that is useful for daily life
Next, I would like to introduce the anime “By the Grace of the Gods,” which was aired in October last year. The original is a post by Mr. Roy to “Become a Novelist”, which is also being serialized. JJ Novels has published 10 volumes of the book version, and as of April this year, it is a very popular work that has exceeded the cumulative circulation of 2.5 million copies. The main character is Ryoma Takebayashi, a middle-aged company slave who works for a black company. Ryoma died one night from a sneeze while sleeping, and decided to reincarnate as an 8-year-old boy, Ryoma Takebayashi. Ryoma, who lives alone in the woods and works on slime research as a tamer with the blessing of God, will later go out to the city and play an active role in the tamer guild, adventurer guild, and commercial guild. story. In this work, slime appears as a servant used by Ryoma. Although he does not speak, he is drawn like Ryoma’s companion and is not treated as a mere monster. In addition, there are many new types of slime that Ryoma follows, and it is interesting that each has useful abilities. For example, at the reincarnated destination, Ryoma opened a cleaning shop for a white company, and what helped him was the ability of “clean slime” to purify any dirt. In addition, slimes that are useful for daily life, such as “acid slime” that digests everything and “scavenger slime” that processes excrement, will appear one after another. “The man picked up by the gods” is depicted as slime is not just an enemy of Zako in battle, but an indispensable existence for living. The feature is that the subtitles of each episode of the anime always include slime, such as “Slimes and Ryoma,” “Slimes and Cleaning Work,” and “Slimes and Lady’s Training.”
Finally, slime is the main character!
Lastly, I would like to introduce “Matter that was slime when reincarnated” in which slime finally became the main character. If it’s slime work, this is a popular work that you can’t miss. The original is a light novel by Mr. Fuse serialized in “Become a Novelist”, and the animation is currently being broadcast for two terms. From April 2021, the spin-off animation “That Time I Got Sla Diary” has been broadcast, and from July, the second part of the main story will finally be broadcast. This work starts from the place where a 37-year-old office worker, Satoru Mikami, who works as a general contractor, is reborn as a slime rilum in a cave in a different world, thinking that he died after being stabbed by a thrill kill. Originally a slime that should be a weak monster, it has the power of cheat-like skills “great sage” and “predator” acquired when reincarnated, and it turns into the strongest slime and makes an outstanding performance. Originally a pacifist and mild-mannered human character, Limuru, who helps those in need across races, continues to grow in number, and finally the Federation of Jura Tempest for the demons. Established. A story about a country or a race is unfolded against a demon king or a dragon. Needless to say, the activity of slime in this work is Limuru, the main character. Not only do you master powerful skills, but monsters of various races are attracted by Limuru’s personality and gather. It is also spectacular to see how the national power is enhanced by making use of the abundant knowledge of the office worker era. Not only “That Time I Got Reincarnated”, which is currently being broadcast by anime, but also “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime-Walking in the Land of Demon-” !! Many spin-offs work such as “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” is in progress. In 2019, Kenshi Hirokane’s “Kousaku Shima” series will be collaborated with “That Time I Got Reincarnated as Kosaku Shima”, which is a great leap forward that cannot be thought of like a slime. As the genre called “reincarnated things” has been established, the number of works that treat slime as the main theme has increased, but what kind of slime is for you? The concept of the slime-zako monster may be old.
