What did you watch?

This has been an epic series, both in the sheer scale of the world-building and because I’ve been watching it since November. When I first started watching That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime I had no idea it was going to be twenty-five episodes long, but when I found out I was well in and quite happy to discover there would be more. However, sometimes less is more.

What’s it about?

A thirty-something office worker is murdered on his way to lunch and as he lies there slowly dying, he complains about the pain, the heat, the cold, etc. Somehow, his complaints influenced what happened next. He awoke in a strange world with a strange body and a number of strange new abilities. He had been reincarnated as a slime!

He comes across various monsters and manages to defeat them and gain their abilities. Finally, he meets a mighty dragon imprisoned in a magic cage. They give each other names and become friends. Then Rimuru, the slime, eats the dragon and the prison in hopes of finding a way to free him. Then he sets out to explore this strange new world.
