Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Synopsis

Satoru Mikami, 37, is a typical company worker who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, apart from not having gotten a girlfriend once in his life. In the middle of a chance meeting with his colleague, he falls victim to a random mugger on the street and is stabbed. However, as he succumbs to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind and recites a bunch of orders that the dying man can't make sense of. When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has been reincarnated as a slime in an unknown realm. In doing so, he gains new abilities, most notably the power to devour anything and mimic his appearance and abilities.

Next, he stumbles across the catastrophic-level sealed monster “Storm Dragon” Veldora, who has been sealed for the past 300 years for razing a city. Understanding his situation, Satoru befriends him and promises to help him destroy the seal. In return, Veldora grants him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection. Now freed from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a new journey with a clear goal in mind. As he grows accustomed to his new physique, his sticky antics spread throughout the world, gradually altering his destiny.

The story follows Satoru Mikami, a company worker who, after being stabbed in the street, is reincarnated as a slime in an unknown kingdom and acquires new abilities, including the power to devour anything and imitate its appearance and abilities. With his new form, Rimuru Tempest, as he now calls himself, befriends the sealed monster Veldora and begins a new adventure.
