TL;DR Review

I did not think That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime would grab me this much. I had waited until at least three episodes aired before making my first impression, but now I can’t wait till each new episode get a release on Monday.

The animation is gorgeous with a quirky fluffy fluidity to it. The colors are vibrant and sharp.

Elements Garden is composing the series’ music. Takuma Terashima is performing the series’ opening theme song “Nameless story”. True is performing the series’ ending theme song “Another colony”. The opening song is one of the few flaws I find in this series, as it is your typical bishounen sounding type of opening. Thankfully, the ending theme redeems the music for me.

The writing is smart and funny. This series remind me of Overlord except its focus is more on comedy and less evil. The character is likable and of course, overpower, as in most isekai.

I’ll label this as a harem anime, but some may not even consider it. There are a few cute girls that love our main protagonist, but then almost everyone loves him too.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series, though it isn’t flawless. Some of the arcs had me in tear, especially the Shizu storyline. While others feel a bit hollow. The story did meander a bit near the end. Overall, I still consider this series one of the best show of 2018.

I highly recommend this series to the fan of fantasy that loves a good vibe anime. This anime contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
