Official Trailers 






The Jura Tempest Federation, the nation founded by protagonist Rimuru and all the monsters  who decided to follow him, has entered into agreements and begun to trade with neighboring countries, making the ideal of a nation where humans and monsters walk side by side a reality. At Rimuru's core is a fondness for humans that comes from his history of being a human who reincarnated as a slime... but there is a definite hostility toward monsters in this world. When faced with this unfair reality, Rimuru makes a choice regarding what he doesn't want to lose. The reincarnation story that fans have long awaited plunges into a tempestuous new chapter!
