Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Synopsis
Satoru Mikami, 37, is a typical company worker who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, aside from never having gotten a girlfriend once in his life. In the midst of a chance encounter with his colleague, he falls victim to a random assailant on the street and is stabbed. However, as he succumbs to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind and recites a bunch of commands that the dying man can’t make sense of. When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has been reincarnated as a slime in an unknown realm. In doing so, he gains new abilities, most notably the power to devour anything and mimic his appearance and abilities.
Next, he stumbles upon the catastrophic-level sealed monster “Storm Dragon” Veldora, which has been sealed for the past 300 years from rampaging through a city. Understanding his situation, Satoru befriends him and promises to help him destroy the seal. In return, Veldora grants him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection. Now freed from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a new journey with a clear goal in mind. As he gets used to his new physique, his gooey antics spread throughout the world, gradually altering his fate.
