Anime News Network broke the news a short time ago!
The news of a second season being planned for 2020 comes almost a week after what will now be the first season’s finale. Two more episodes are scheduled to run but they will be specials. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the season in its entirety on Crunchyroll.
It tells the story of a man who is randomly killed and then reincarnated as a Slime in a fantasy world. He quickly comes into his own founds a nation without even trying. Like The Rising Shield Hero, there are RPG references and elements in this Anime. There is PLENTY of material to continue this into a Season 2 and possibly even a third.
Whatever’s covered in the two special episodes not withstanding, here’s a few plot points that can be revisited:
- Veldora: We know he’s not dead inside Rimuru. I had to go back and watch it again but from what I understand, Veldora isn’t supposed to be inside Rimuru permanently. Finding a way to release him could be a significant plot item.
- Demon Lord Leon: He was mentioned a few times as the one who summoned Shizune and put Ifrit inside her. It looked like we would see Rimuru avenge her but that ended up not happening. I could certainly see this plot point getting revisited.
- Shizune’s Students: Their situation is resolved “for now”. No doubt they could be revisited at some point down in the future.
These are just a few I thought of off the top of my head.
In short, a Season 2 is very good news for fans of the series. I have to do a better job of mentioning this in the future but this anime is based on a Light Novel of the same name.
