Rimuru is back, so let's celebrate with a closer look at the new season!
At long last, Rimuru and the gang are back in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2, which launches today as part of the Crunchyroll Winter 2021 lineup. If you're as excited as we are for the return of Slime Time, you'll want to read on for an overview of the cast, staff, trailers, and more about the production!
Launch Time: January 12 (Live NOW!)
Territories: North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS
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!
