The second season returns in July
During the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime stage at Anime Japan 2021 today, the third key visual for the series was unveiled featuring Rimuru (in their demon lord form) and another character. The visual was drawn by the main series' character designer Ryoma Ebata.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime season two just completed its first half, with the second half of the series scheduled to begin in July 2021. In the meantime, spin-off The Slime Diaries is scheduled to premiere on April 6, with it streaming on Crunchyroll, which describes the spin-off as such:
"The slime life is fantastic! Slime Diaries, the hugely popular four-panel spin-off comic that has sold over 500,000 copies, is making its debut as the first That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime spin-off anime! "I got hold of some valuable paper, so I've decided to write down the experiences I've had in diary format. I'll start it off with... hmm... 'I got reincarnated as a slime.' And that was when my adventure... when my... adventure..." Fun and humorous tales of the everyday lives of Rimuru and his friends in Tempest offer prime reincarnation entertainment, slime-style!
