Popular Isekai anime, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, is coming back for a second season during spring next year. After the announcement of the new season, the official Season 2 website released a promotional video.
This anime is an adaptation of the manga and light novel series written by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz Vah. The first season of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensei Shitara Suraimu Datta Ken) is 24 episodes long and it ran from October 2018 to March 2019.
The first season was well-received by Isekai fans. Season 2 was supposed to premiere in October 2020, however, its production was halted by the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, the second season’s release was pushed back and modified to be ready for release on January 12, 2021, and streamed by Crunchyroll and Funimation.
This season is split into two parts, the first part meant to premiere in January 2021 as part of the winter season and the latter in July as part of the summer season.
Sadly, the official release has been delayed for the second time. Fans will need to wait a little bit longer. The anime adaptation of the second spin-off manga, The Slime Diaries: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensura Nikki Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken) is actually, hopefully, going to come out in April 2021.
