Synopsis of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
Satoru Mikami, 37, is a typical corporate worker who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, apart from not having gotten a girlfriend even once in his life.
In the middle 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 wounds, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind and recites a slew of orders that the dying man cannot make sense of.
When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has been reincarnated as a slime in an unknown realm. By doing so, he gains new abilities, most notably the power to devour anything and imitate its appearance and abilities.
He then stumbles upon the catastrophic-level sealed monster “Storm Dragon” Veldora, who has been sealed for the past 300 years for razing a city.
Understanding his situation, Satoru befriends him and promises to help him destroy the seal. In exchange, Veldora gives 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 becomes accustomed to his new physique, his clingy antics spread throughout the world, gradually altering his destiny.
