That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, the popular light novel published on the website ‘Shosetsuka ni Narou’ (Let’s become a Novelist), released a first trailer and main visual. The trailer also announces the main cast and introduces the characters. The anime will be released in October 2018.
The light novel, with more 400 million, follows salaryman Satoru Mikami as he gets stabbed by a phantom killer. When he opens his eyes again, he finds himself reborn into another world as a slime. In this world, many creatures wander around- from dragons to goblins and from dwarfs to ogres, and like this Satoru starts a new life as Rimuru the slime. With his skills and wisdom, he makes many friends and aims to create a country where everybody can live together happily without worrying about their race.
Miho Okasaki will voice Rimuru, who was reborn as a slime with the unique skills ‘Great Sage’ and ‘Predator’. Using these skills, he becomes friends with many people and races. Thanks to the skill ‘Great Sage’ he can hear a voice in his head that explains everything he needs to know. That voice is going to be Megumi Toyoguchi. The first person he meets in the new world is the dragon Veldora, voiced by Tomoaki Maeno. Another person that Rimuru influences a lot is Shizu, who will be voiced by Yumiri Hanamori. And Milim, a dragon magician who also is known by the name ‘Destroy no Bokun’, will be voiced by Rina Hidaka. Other voice actors who will work on this series are Makoto Furukawa, Sayaka Senbongi, MAO, Takuya Eguchi and Hochu Otsuka.
The anime is scheduled to start airing in October 2018 and the end of the trailer reveals that it will be running for two season!
