Depressed 37-year-old salaryman Satoru Mikami lives alone and has never had a girlfriend. When he’s killed in a random stabbing attack, he suddenly wakes up in another world but is dismayed to realize he’s been reincarnated as a slime! Now called Rimuru, he does his best to adjust to life in this new kingdom of creepy crawlies and vows to build a nation where everyone can live together happily regardless of species.
